a trade of violent sins

alas the bright dawn, and now that night's gone i focus on the pain i've set my sights on she sings my life's song, he turned the right wrong and for revenge i've waited all my life long the bruise and bites on, the flesh applied on the damage done and shame that she has tried on i know her fright's strong, but i got my knife drawn and i will take his life away

engine and lights on, for miles i ride on the silence strums the notes to my own fight song and before night's done, i'll take the life from a vile fiend that forced his will

and i wll avenge your honor, for the sins of long ago revenge for the years of anguish and he will suffer so...

the face of, my silhouette is changin' shape inside the wake of trading violent sins and i will, return with a justice you can hold

another's night's dawn, will find his life drawn the cords around his throat the strength of pythons i took the life from, yea i took the life from a vile fiend that forced his will

and i have avenged your honor for the sins of long ago revenge for the years of anguish and he did suffer so...

i have avenged your honor for the sins of long ago found revenge for the years of anguish now i can let go

white picket fence

there's a rumor that's been goin' around you didn't hear i'm headed back into town it's not like you missed havin' me 'round it's by my own accord and i'm gone and i'm gone

how do i get those thing i need when you're makin' my poor heart bleed? hear me out, i'm beggin' please that you can't waste your time on me

i hope your white picket fence surrounds the jester's robe and the kingship's crown the tattered lives and the walls torn down the casualties of war and i'm gone and i'm gone

how do i get those thing i need when you're makin' my poor heart bleed? hear me out, i'm beggin' please that you can't waste your time on me

on me

lyrics to 'wtf'

not even through pullin' up, almost ran over my stuff all through the yard, what the fuck? maybe my ex called her up told her i'm back on the drugs but even still, what the fuck?

each day you know i strive to be a better man and i appreciate you babe for handling the handful i am

i really should have wrote down what day your folks were in town i came home stoned, what the fuck? i ended up telling Gus i had conjunctivitis in both my eyes, what the fuck?

i try to keep my lies as harmless as i can i'm hiding from the world and i will for as long as i can stand

i'm almost thirty and stuff and i just called my dad up for fifty bucks, what the fuck? i'm watchin' x-men and stuff and i don't wanna grow up i never will, what the fuck? i'm watchin' x-men too much and i don't wanna grow up i never will, what the fuck?

lyrics to 'teri'

teri, i swear, though we've only met eyes from what seems like miles away i can tell by your vibe, that you've got something inside that burns as bright as the day champagne, crowded rooms but you keep catchin' my eye pickin' you out of the fray so shy, hey but i find myself crossin' the room steadily makin' my way

teri i'm not sure, what you heard before but i'm wishin' i could say...

teri, i swear, by the light of your eyes keepin' butterflies at bay you are the most beautiful girl in this town that's all that i wanted to say

and teri i'm not sure, if you're wanting more but i'm longin' for your way...

(you got me walkin' the line, dizzy and fallin' behind i must be out of my mind, you got me fallin')

lyrics to 'x 2'

i'll only make it if one of you leaves me tonight closes the curtain bows out and disappears from sight

there's a deja vu moment occurring there's a crossroads i've paused at before there's a decision that lurks in the balance that i've fought with and fought with some more there is a a lover who has only adored me there's a promise that's still standing tall there is a hope and a faith and a comfort and i'm considering trading it all

'cuz i'm no good with options, no i'm no good

and there's an old flame that burns in the distance there's a past that i cannot ignore there is a diamond that lies in a pawn shop yet i just cannot seem to close that door

should this flame become a fire it could destroy all that i've built since

and i'm no good with options, no i'm no good at all

and i'll only make it if one of you leaves me tonight closes the curtain, bows out and disappears from sight 'cuz i can't take it, i'm feeling conflicted, torn inside i'm lovesick and wasted times two these problems multiply

lyrics to 'take me with you'

well... i'm packin' up my shit and that's it it's over leavin' you aloof alone on the sofa catch me walkin' out witness like jehovah but still all of the while i wish and i hope-ah you'd take me with you i'd a come a runnin' faster than a track meet truckin' through the front yards, sidewalks and backstreets when you unlock the whip i'll slip into the backseat

and i'll wait for, the exit signs before i even sing my lines

take me with you if we fall down we can try again take me with you not ready for a bitter end

you haven't found a way to tell me that i need ya take tomorrow off and we'll film a double feature so what i'm an overly sexual creature you don't know how to fuck and i don't wanna teach ya you're just a fantasy stealin' me away and distractin' from my focus all your hocus pocus leavin' me the brokest but still i get you better and wetter than super soakers

and this tryst is for, those sweet as wine c'mon now put your hand in mine

take me with you if we fall down we can try again take me with you not ready for a bitter end take me with you if we fall down we can try again take me with you not ready for a bitter end take me with you if we fall down we can try again take me with you not ready for a bitter end

lyrics to 'honest offer'

i told myself, be honest i told myself, a second time that i'm parading with my heart in the open all in hopes that someday i can make you mine

even if your faith is fleeting even if your hope is gone i will show you i believe it too even if it's barely beating suffering but hanging on i'll prove my intentions to be true

i told myself, be honest i told myself, a second time that i'm parading with my heart in the open all in hopes that someday i can make you mine

even if it bleeds for ages even if it stains your hands i will still extend my reach to you and even as we go through stages on and off our soapbox stands i will stick around to see this through

i told myself, be honest i told myself, a second time that i'm parading with my heart in the open all in hopes that someday i can make you mine i told myself, be honest i told myself, a second time that i'm parading with my heart in the open all in hopes that someday i can make you mine

lyrics to 'swenson'

swenson lives across the lake and i think if we could stay awake an early dawn could mark the tracks and we could find out where he goes oh i heard he massacred three sisters and remains went to the wolves the axe he carries burns and blisters and the crime he paid in full they passed these trees a time before bearing oil lamps in days of yore their innocence to meet the axe their virgin blood to soak the soil the creaking branches gave away the creeping Swenson's presence whoa-oh our petrified frames can't escape staring and trembling still then the old man, keeper of a battered face and a tormented soul breathed heavily and sighed, his shoulders rolling back, his grip at ease, dropping the mighty axe to the dirt. as sorrow gripped his brow and his eyes welled with tears he claimed the past an accident and excused us for our fears, that he heard the cries of the girls and came to with axe in hand to find them engaged in battle with a pack of wolves driven to hunger by a sore winter and manifest destiny. teeth versus skirt, desperation versus terror, the victor the ravenous wolves that tore flesh to pieces and dodged the axe leaving just vacant screams, three tattered dresses and a young man aged a thousand years by grief and sixty years by the clock, standing as the protector who couldn't save, collapsing to his knees until the arrival of notified detectives whose testament of such landed the broken Swenson in cages amongst the wicked, the prison of his failure and the judgment of his peers. his words struck chords in my heart as he declared aloud i still see their blood on my hands i still feel the weight of their bones i still hear the echoes of screams all the way, all the way home i still see their white dresses torn i still carry the guilt of the world i still taste their fear in the air all the way, all the way home...

lyrics to 'a crimson wash of night (my dilated eyes)'

this summer's standing still and luring violent will to spread a fire that's been burning bright within desperate for release and pleading for a breach at whispering point i'll dance with you tonight my dilated eyes, witness this device, on delicate design i press with all my might carving what is mine, silent and resigned to set this crimson free and let it wash the night at mast and overwhelmed with no captain at the helm these stormy seas will break the backs of men i'm slashing at three junes and totally consumed, this vicious cycle has started all again let it wash the night

lyrics to 'still dreaming'

i'm not waiting on valentines from you and i won't call your house, like i used to i'll stare at pictures for a while and lose myself inside your smile i'm dreaming of you on the daily and only your love can save me whoa-oh, i'm still dreaming of you i'm not waiting on valentines from you and i promise to forget, what you put me through i'll sit and listen to the rain and when the thunder rolls, i'll say your name it's not like me to hang around but i'll stay to watch, the sun go down and when the morning wears its crown we will up and leave this one horse town
