If It's All That You Wanted, Why Didn't You Stop?

it’s there if you want it, and it’s there if not 

if aim prevents my change to dust 
how come it always turns to lust? 

if it’s all that you wanted, why didn’t you stop? 
if it’s all that you wanted, why didn’t you stop and start aga...

Bring Back the Dying to Life

bring back the dying to life 
shame on me if i don’t give myself to the world 
i am everybody’s disciple 
teaching my crippled mind while it's heavy as iron 
ah you swines 

so far in my dying 
there has been 
twice i was alive

Almost a Normal Song

i thought i’d write a normal song 
about normal things, with normal chords

in the dark room

Let's Dance in the Fire

everyone's dripping their whole lives away 
the drains are so full that the towns are just sliding away 
let's escape now while the going is good

The Last Door

i was a friend of yours 
that friend with the horns 
i was the last door 
spiralled by thorns 

i thought i knew 
so i grew pictures of you 
in my outer mind 
and if i was your only hope 
then who was mine? 

there is some b...
