Track Name: The Lie
heard so many words and i'm sure they're all absurd
its the truth i hear reversed when you come into my world
i'll lend an ear and i'll try to hear you clear
just don't play upon my fear and i'll thank you for the

thanks for the lie

once i saw a skeleton painted on a shell
and it had a tale to tell back from when i knew you well
a slender manic in panic and barring something satanic
she had a plan and it brought me to my knees

this girls a veteran deceiver she's been a substance receiver
its been a chore to police her and this eve i'm relieved
a tragic loss of it all a toss down a hospital hall
a guest at the vagrants' ball and a lonesome midnight call

thanks for the lie (etc.)
Track Name: Ocean Song
I waited for your hand in the ocean
waiting for it to fade away
into the grey

knowing our great big sin
and we begged you all to stay
you're in the way

From me and the sharks and the ocean all around us endlessly
and the littlelest of motions that could set off a storm that was sound asleep

cause we try and go nowhere
and we see how it's gone

now that we're back on land
when the waters clearly where i want to be
deep in the sea

away from all the notes and all the chords and words
time to get into the silence that gets a little sharper
and it draws even further

from me and the sharks and the ocean all around us endlessly
and the littlest of motions that could set off a storm that was sound asleep.

cause we try and go nowhere
and we see how it's gone
Track Name: Oh, This Century
all my friends and me live in poverty
'bove the centipedes, in a house downtown
oh, this century, its so new to me
why now must it be always bringing me down?

i don't know where to go,
i don't know where to go,
just lay me down slow

all you claim to be, your disdain for me
will not set you free when you're over the hill
oh, this century, its so comforting
lay me down and please, do not send me the bill

i don't know where to go,
i don't know where to go,
just lay me down slow

Oohs

i don't know where to go,
i don't know where to go,
just lay me down slow
Track Name: Carnie's Ride
love is like a carnie's ride
you'll never know how bent the light is
walk right in
i'm told that i would recognize
if i was hit between the eyes with it
and what lies within

i've been known to lend a hand
i've been accused of being
a kind sort of man

so take a kindly tip from me
ain't nothing good will ever come for free
or easily

least of all the lovers that i've known
i had to dig through leagues of the deepest stone
just to find the gold

love is like a carnie's smile
cracked from years of travelling wide and thin
and full of sin

on the road between the towns
where the feet will never touch the ground
or make a sound

all the love that i've lost
the price i paid
could never justify the cost

love is like a carnie's ride
pay your dime and ride the slide away
now don't die today
ride that wheel up to the top
and try to see the view that you forgot
the view you bought
Track Name: Near It's End
The constant motions always there to guide us
from the painted pictures that all go to waste
in them there are stars and clouds and skydust
that form the outline of an aging face

what could this all mean?
is it unforseen?
it's the essence of a dream

that goes down and up and back again
you frown cheer up but lack the friends
this happiness is near it's end
look back on this but fear the mend is gone

when you're stuck out here with nothing left to say
it forces you to make the best of what you have
sure far away theres far more festive days
you walk around lost till you stumble on a map

what could this all mean?
is it unforseen?
it's the essence of a dream

that goes down and up and back again
you frown cheer up but lack the friends
this happiness is near it's end
look back on this but fear the mend is gone (x2)
