Antifreeze

better run away, better close our eyes.
take a little walk to taste the ice.
try antifreeze, try antifreeze, cause it's under your seat, naked at your feet.
we're cold and you're comfortable. we're cold and you're comfortable.
filling up the space for the drag race.
stop between the lions while the lambs keep on trying.
try antifreeze, try antifreeze, cause it's under your seat, naked at your feet.
we're cold and you're comfortable. we're cold and you're comfortable.
try antifreeze, try antifreeze, cause it's under your seat, naked at your feet.
we're cold and you're comfortable. we're cold and you're comfortable.

Rising Blood

this is the dream, where I'm the super american and I can do anything I want cause the girls have got their guns.
do you want to feel now? do you want to feel now? do you want to feel now? do you want to feel now?
I do, wouldn't you? wouldn't you?
I can feel the pain, wouldn't you, wouldn't you?
it's regular, count the blood cells, it's regular, count the blood cells, 1-2-3.
this is the dream where I'm the super american and I can sense the rising blood, cause the girls have got their guns.
this is the dream now? do you want to feel now? do you want to feel now? do you want to feel now?
I do, wouldn't you? wouldn't you?
I can feel the pain, wouldn't you, wouldn't you?
it's regular, count the blood cells, it's regular, count the blood cells, 1-2-3.
I do, wouldn't you? wouldn't you?
I can feel the pain, wouldn't you, wouldn't you?

Understand and Forget

I understand you, I understand you, and I can't believe the things that you do.
but if I forget that I have faith, put a flower on my grave.
I understand you, I can always see the space you take, space you take.
but if I forget that I have faith, put a flower on my grave, on my grave, on my grave.
we sit in a room, a friendless room, but we still can't believe there's no place like home.
and soon.
I understand you, I understand you, and I can't believe the things that you do, that you do, that you do, that you do, that you do.
do, do.
but if I forget that I have faith, put a flower on my grave, on my grave, on my grave.

Fingertips

sorry I know I freak you out,
but the pain is just like a clamp.
you always were a friend to me.
pleasant feelings aren't all past.
your fingertip / their evidence. my fingertip / their evidence.
it's not like we care so much,
even when we feel like we're not here.
I think they're going to kill me now.
the thought alone I could not bear.
your fingertip / their evidence. my fingertip / their evidence.
I am finding out now all the time where murdering us is not a crime.
you always were a friend to me. sorry that I have to leave.
your fingertip / their evidence. my fingertip / their evidence.
fingertip, fingertip, fingertip, tip. (spoken stuff)

You Bite My Tongue

I cut off my ears on purpose
to deny and defy this instance.
we have too many things to say to each other,
so why not speak at all?
you bite my tongue.
what was the secret anyway?
and why would I give it anyway?
and why not bite my heart out too?
would I give it to you?
you bite my tongue.

Stuck In The Middle Of Nowhere Again

one million songs said I miss you, and it's like that twice.
I've seen this room a million times, and I don't know why.
can only guess from similar experience.
can only take a stab at a song.
all I did was die, and I can't ask why.
stuck in the middle of nowhere again. stuck in the middle of nowhere again.
I can't give you everything I want.
I can't even look at you.
asking could you do that for me,
could you do that for me?
all I did was die, cry inside.
stuck in the middle of nowhere again. stuck in the middle of nowhere again.
one million songs said I miss you and I still do.

Warmth Prospect

it's what I want to do, it's what I want to be, it's what I want to see, it's what I want from you.
the warmth we feel seems so so real, going round.
it's what I want to do, it's what I want to be, it's what I want to see, it's what I want from you.
we take it away, the socks off our feet see now the heat's all gone gone gone.
it wasn't always there, how hard can we stare? it's an apology for you you you you.
it's what I want to do, it's what I want to be, it's what I want to see, it's what I want from you.
the warmth we feel that's so close and so real is the touch i dream.
it's what I want to do, it's what I want to be, it's what I want to see, it's what I want from you.
we take it away, the socks off our feet see now the heat's all gone gone gone.
it wasn't always there, how hard can we stare? it's an apology for you you you you.
but it could have been a dream, could have been a dream, could have been a dream.
could have been a dream, could have been a dream, could have been a dream.

Kid Is Gone (A Chant Of Vengeance)

the little lamb, he takes a walk, taking breath by breath with a chant of vengeance.
kid is gone, kid is gone, sacrifice.
and what pain did he feel on every stride, with a chant of vengeance.
cold inside, cold inside, cold inside.
the kid is gone, kid is gone, what sacrifice, he's gone beyond.
and what pain did he feel with every stride, with a chant of vengeance.

Kandy Korn Rituals + Against

look now, this is the fire next time.
we'll perform kandy korn rituals.
the dance, we'll make the prom you hate.
we'll perform kandy korn rituals.
green turns to black, green turns to black, green turns to black, green turns to black.
so we'll burn it, we'll burn it down.
that fist you gave has proved our rage.
we'll perform kandy korn rituals.
this isn't georgia, this is tumwater. this isn't georgia, this is tumwater. this isn't georgia, this is tumwater.
we'll burn it down, burn it down, burn down, burn down, down.

against my mind, against my soul, against my eye, at least I'll try.
against all time, against all space, against all matter, what's the matter?
against the age, against the rage, against your age, what's the rage?
against all time, against all space, against all matter, what's the matter?
