Entirely Different Matters

yes i'm certain that a curtain needs some pulling cause it's hurting, it makes me think:
i'm uncertain that you're her friends and don't even try to pretend that you're all alone.
doesn't really matter
so you're hating and conspiring and i'm trying to defend her, you never said
why you hate her and you make her have intentions to make life worse, it never works.
what's the matter, it doesn't matter, nothing really matters, several different matters, entirely different matters,
entirely different.

What Was Wound

damaged ones made to fit a frame
i already know we're not the same
and you say there's nothing to it there's no harm but you don't want to do it
and you say there's nothing to it it's o.k. but you don't want to do it.
salt of the earth on an open wound.
salt of the earth on an open wound.
cutting in won't seem right
tear your skin and invite it in
and you say there's nothing to it there's no harm but you don't want to do it
and you say there's nothing to it it's o.k. but you don't want to do it.
salt of the earth on an open wound.
salt of the earth on an open wound.
injury you can't explain
injure me inflict no pain
and you say why'd i do it and you say you put me to it
don't you know you put me to it don't know you i said i'd do it.
salt of the earth on an open wound.
salt of the earth on an open wound.

Envelope

she won't miss you if you let her.
she won't miss you if you let her.
she won't miss you if you let her.
she won't miss you if you let her.
i'm not scared to stay inside a sealed envelope
envelope envelope envelope
i don't know why i live inside a goddamn envelope
envelope envelope envelope
she won't miss you if you let her.
she won't miss you if you let her.
she won't miss you if you let her.
she won't miss you if you let her.
i'm not scared to stay inside a sealed envelope
envelope envelope envelope
i don't know why i live inside a goddamn envelope
envelope envelope envelope
i'll shed no tears for the wasted year i spend waiting here,
don't know what i'll do when you leave and don't see you for a year.

Hexenzsene

hex on you, what a shame,
curses too, what should you do?
ex on you, next in line,
shames on you all of the time.
and now you're alien
spell it out for yourself
paranoid insane
find another name.
some wishes burn, it's not cruel
stakes are high, low octane fuel
take a dive come back again
want some advice: do not offend.
when i notice i don't show it,
don't blame them,
hex on you.

All Souls Day

say it first i won't pretend to know what to do about death and dying more than you,
graves don't talk and souls don't speak in tongues and the dead sea sank with all the ancient ones.
don't cross your fingers if you're afraid,
cause nobody sings on all souls day,
i won't pray.
i close my eyes in your company, too sick to pray for the young in me,
don't want to die so soon, don't really think i will, won't dwell on it for the present do i kill.
don't cross your fingers if you're afraid,
nobody sings on all souls day,
i won't pray.

Usual Dosage

white sugar always talk it up
white sugar always chalk it up
white sugar always joke around
white sugar just boast your luck.
wouldn't say it's evil but i wouldn't try it either,
i wouldn't save it for later but i wouldn't buy it either,
it's how you pay for it how will you pay for it
how to bring it home and how to take it...
so usual, so usual, so usual, so usual
and now you fucked it up
your life a pretty misery,
bank it around unlucky secrets
vacant statues you're not o.k.

Arboretum

i'm alone and now i'm sorry
i'm at home and now it's scary
and it seems like somethings coming soon.
day comes around and i won't wake up
dismiss the sounds of ill-defined make up
it counts as loud but it just leaves me cold.
i was thinking disillusioned
and you were sinking into memory.
all i do is create an illusion
all i need is a little intrusion
form a sound with an idea
hope to drown before i see you
cause i was drinking my conclusion
and i was finding my necessity.

Fiction Friction

it's a shattered day all around
it's a shattered day in our town,
seems wrong,
it's a saturnday all the time
it's a saturnday once again,
nice time.
it's another day down the drain
it's another day just the same,
so what,
it's a stupid day on this day
it's a stupid day everyday,
good bye
you'd make great fiction, you make great friction.
you'd make great fiction, you make great friction.
so it's history, you can count me out, it's not apathy, it's incomplete
you'd make great fiction, you make great friction.
you'd make great fiction, you make great friction.
flying in the mainstream, second third time not a dream, and a crown don't mean a thing, when it's made of pain.
you'd make great fiction, you make great friction.
you'd make great fiction, you make great friction.
i'm not the king of pain, put it down the drain, shame it's not obvoius, i'm not a prodigy.
