Track Name: Float
Light-hearted,
Damn I will be one of them.
But how to get there,
I don't think I understand.
'Cause talking pisses me off,
Discussion's trying to cool off,
Oh I would just rather float,
I really don't want a book
Of my quotes.
Of my quotes.

I just want to float.

And you told me that I
Should start it up again,
And I said yes,
But I knew it wouldn't be the plan.
'Cause talking pisses me off,
Discussion's trying to cool off,
Oh I would just rather float,
I really don't want a book
Of my quotes.
Of my quotes,

I just want to float,
I just want to float.
Track Name: Cool
Out of touch with strangers needs,
Shouldn't hide, yet I choose to.
When I'd rather confront you,
But the risk is too much, think I lost my flavor.
Drop of poison, head on home,
With TV shows of lust to haunt me.
Always say we'll be just fine,
But in the end I always pretend

That I'm cool with you.
That I'm cool with you.
All this time, on our own,
Like I give a shit - well, who really knows
If I'm cool with you.

Hey whiskey, comfort me.
A hand to hold, in a loving pretense.
Cause' those domination's hold,
An unfair truth, with a list of your kinks.
One lasting good-bye smile,
In a bed so lost in it all.
When you say we'll be just fine,
In the end, I always pretend

That I'm cool with you,
That I'm cool with you.
All this time, on our own,
Like I give a shit - well, who really knows
If I'm cool with you.

'Cause we've been gone for so long,
Out on the ocean we'll sail.
On a ship we built,
The Steam-Ship Bless, with courage I know we'll never fail.

All this time, on our own,
Like I give a shit - well, who really knows
If I'm cool with you.
Track Name: Never As Good
Sitting on the grass because the sun's too rough,
and I can't think about my wallet 'cause money's tough.
Wish you would get closer to me.
Now I can't sleep, I've been up all night,
Thinking the grass is green-er if the effort's right.
Clueless how I did this all before.

No, I don't know.
I don't know.
About you, you.
I don't know.
About you, you.

Never as good, or as bad, as they say you are.
It's not worth the question if the answer's gonna leave you a scar.

Honey, I don't know what it means to me,
But when the sun goes down there's insecurity,
Will the visitor's all feel less anxious now?
Did I make the cut, did you feel alright,
You know the fires there, it's gonna burn all night,
And when the sun comes up, you can peel me off the floor.

No, I don't know.
I don't know.
About you, you.
I don't know.
About you, you.

Never as good, or as bad, as they say you are.
It's not worth the question if the answer's gonna leave you a scar.
As you are,
As you are,
As you are,
As you are.
Track Name: Compassless
This too, I know I shall suffer through.
This too, I know I shall suffer through.
This too, I know I shall suffer through.

I feel alone,
Can't make a difference,
The look inside my eye screams bitter twisted,
To the Compassless.
To those forgotten.
You are my only lovers,
Can't live without each other.

(before we cease to exist)
This too, I know I shall suffer through.
This too, I know I shall suffer through.
This too, I know I shall suffer through.

Oh, baby lead me down a destructive road,
Oh, the way you move's got me feeling so bold,
To the Compassless.
To those forgotten.
You are my only lovers,
Can't live without each other.

And she knows she'll forever be my
Queen
And she knows she'll forever be my
Queen
And she knows she'll forever be my
Queen
And she knows she'll forever be my
Queen

To the Compassless.
To those forgotten.
You are my only lovers,
Can't live without each other.
Track Name: Handle
It's you, it's you, got my eyes on you,
And you're the only one that I'm talking to.
The bar's too loud, yes, I agree,
Yet out train keeps moving so steadily.

And there's coffee stains all over my floor,
From when we spoke of being more,
(doo doo doo doo)
(doo doo doo doo)
And I lost you at the bar,
Think I lost you at the bar.

Your bones, your bones, when they're touching me,
And how the walls would shake with our harmonies.
The house is cursed since the madness won,
And all the ash of clothes inspires guilty songs.

And there's coffee stains all over my floor,
From when we spoke of being more,
(doo doo doo doo)
(doo doo doo doo)
And I lost you at the bar,
Think I lost you at the bar.

I don't think I can handle you,
It's a shame you feed my appetite,
I don't think I can handle you.
Track Name: Divebar (feat. Sarah Savin)
I don't feel like telling you what to do,
At all.
If you're going out on the town,
Feel free to give me a call.
I know you'll prove em' wrong,
Or maybe leave and move on,
From acceptance in this city.

Down at the divebar things are fair.
Yeah we got love here in the air.

Patronized by all those around you
For the way that you walk.
But when the brush hits the palette,
I know you'll change the way that they talk.
I know you'll prove em' wrong,
Or maybe leave and move on,
From acceptance in this city

Down at the divebar, things are fair.
Yeah we got love here in the air.

I know you'll prove em' wrong,
Or maybe leave and move on,
From acceptance in this city.
Track Name: On Your Own
Sometimes you want to feel alone, overexposed to the world.
Socratic discussion's of doom and how you lost a girl.
I watch the future pass me by with no regard for my time.
Missed opportunities they hurt, but so does scarring the mind.

Ooo, I thought they taught you much better.
You seemed detached in your latest letter.

A lonely worker roams the nether having dreams of the throne,
And all the voices on the street are poisoned with what's wrong.
Sometimes you chase after ideas that you know don't exist,
And soon enough you'll be exploited just to protect the rich, rich.

Ooo, I thought they taught you much better.
You seemed detached in your latest letter.

On your own,
On your own.
