Track Name: Splinter
I am always freaking out.
Can't concentrate for long.
Slipping into space and nodding off... and on and on.

So unreal,
living in a dream.
Picking at the scabs
just to watch my skin bleed.
It's not what it seems,
it's just a quick release:
Letting go of pain that is pouring out of me.

Neglect wasted all my pride:
a splinter for my cracked insides.
Wonder when I'll let myself let go.

So unreal,
living in a dream.
Picking at the scabs
just to watch my skin bleed.
It's not what it seems,
it's just a quick release:
Letting go of pain that is...

Track Name: Dysphoria Tries
Cuz I feel it, oh! I feel it.
Neurosis; slipping out for a while.
(And it's holding you down)
Blue, gray, and melancholy.
Tears turning over in your eyes.
(And instead of sleeping)
You'll build a cavalcade of fear,
and hear words when no one else is there.
(While you tap your fingers)
I'll wait for you when you're far away.
See past the emptiness and hate.
(Hold your heart when you can)
Feel better, please! Feel better.
Feel better please, Dysphoria.

(awesome solo)

You get what you ask for,
You take what you need.
Indifference as different pieces of your dreams
Are bursting when you sleep.
Paranoia is always listening
When you're pulling out your teeth.

She opens her eyes
As flowers cover every inch of her tired body.
Numb from lost of hope and claustrophobia.

Cuz' I felt it all, I felt it.
That sick, shaking, insomnia.
(Keep on tapping those fingers)
Psycho-motor loss of control.
Take me away, out of my soul.
Despondent melodies they float
Over your head and falling out.
Patient but anxious as you bite
Your fingernails in this weary state.
(While you're stuck in nowhere)
Feel better, please! Feel better.
Feel better please, Dysphoria
Track Name: Sometimes
Sometimes I get this feeling and my bones start aching.
My legs can't stop shaking and I feel it everywhere.
I know why I get so hung up about it.
And I heard you from the corner and I wanted to say that:
I'll love you from a distance cuz it's too hard to stay.
My heart is racing faster every time I try to breathe.
I can't kick this cold air,
I don't really care that
My vocal chords are turning red and starting to tear.
I'm feeling sentimental you beautiful rose pedal.
Get me out of here.
Get me out of here.

It's quarter-passed-eleven and I want you to know
That I'm thinking of you lonely and I can't let you go.
Wipe the tears from your eyes,
There's no need for you to cry; I'm right here for you.
Sometimes I get this feeling and my bones start aching.
My legs can't stop shaking and I feel it everywhere.
And I know why I get so hung up about it.
I heard you from a corner and I wanted to say.
I can't love you from a distance; It's too hard to flee.
My heart is racing faster every time I try to leave.
Can't kick this cold air,
I don't really care that
My vocal chords are turning red and starting to tear.
I'm feeling sentimental you beautiful rose pedal.
Get me out of here.
Get me out of here.

(Oooooooooooo)
Track Name: The End
So they carried you away.
And charted your insides
While I waited for you,
Worried sick
As white walls graced your hollow eyes; so lost.
And so I'll never let you go.
I wouldn't wanna leave you sobbing, searching for yourself.
Some kind of truth to ease your troubled mind.

And while the world keeps moving on,
I'll always sing your song,
So careless
Oh so free from the restraints
That captivate your absent, lonely eyes.

So you got carried away.
You couldn't find a remedy, so bittersweet.
Your empathy is hidden in that rage, so delicate.

I wanna meet you anywhere and tell you its okay.
We are a force of nature, and we scream when no one's listening.
Our place on the moon, gets covered sometimes
By a blanket of rain, and the tears in our eyes.
I'll dream of a day when you and I can fly
And be free of the pain and the stars in our eyes.
We'll be dancing again.


[My darling,
I'm waiting for you.
How long is a day in the dark?
Or a week....]
