Track Name: Skid Row
She comes away.

Get faith before this ends,
Too late to make amends,
And these are the tables,
And these are the chairs,
This is the furniture,
Buy it in pairs.

You say "where's the hardship here?",
I know it's a silent fear,
Coming story after story,
Try to make some kind of mess,
And it's sleeping in your head again,
'Cos you just can't pass this test (I gave you).

And we are all just second best,
Until we find our place,
Cut among the stasis,
Then fall under house arrest,
But I know this place too well,
She calls and casts a spell,
And it's anybody's second guess,
It's the name that rings bells in hell,
So we go.

You are tired of all your own lies,
You are tired of all your own lies,
You are tired of all your own lies,
You are tired of all your own lies,
You are tired of all your own lies,
You are tired of all your own lies,
You are tired of all your own lies,
You are tired of all your home life.
Track Name: Bielefeld
Talk about some kind of future,
Make it as black and as white,
Typed up all across the paper,
Send it up all in my mind,
Here is the thing with the plan,
Here is the day with a plan,
Sure as the, sure as the sunset,
Sure as the, sure as your head,
I want to know, I want to know what it means,
I want to know, I want to know just what it means.

Typing up terminal contracts,
Terminal just for resolve,
You know it, you know it makes sense now,
Written all over the wall.

Who can say if I'm really here tonight?
Who can say if I've lost my mind?
Who can say if I'm really real tonight?
Who can say if I've lost my mind?

We are all part of this crisis,
Like mothers and sisters carry us all,
In and out of family housing,
Falling up against the wall.

Don't you want to try it?
Don't you want to make it right?
Don't you want to try it,
For once in your God-damned life?
Don't you want to try it?
For once in your life, get it right,
Don't you want to try it,
For once on my side?
For once on my side.

Part of the, part of the furniture,
Who can be really sure if we're here?
Have you heard about the new problem?
It comes year after year after year,
It comes year after year after year,
It comes year after year after year,
It comes year after year after year,
It comes year after year after year.

How do you want to come back?
How do you want to come back?
Back, back to this,
Back, back to this,
How do you want to feel it?
How do you want shape it?
Back, back to this,
Back, back to this,
Back, back to this,
Back, back to this,
Back, back to this,
Back, back to this,
Back, back to this.
Track Name: Argleton
I'm sleeping away,
These towns get in the way,
I'm nothing to you,
You bypass your own truth,
Now I'm out on the lines of town,
Again in your own mind,
Try to find a certain line,
Tries bending it again this time.

And when I talk to you,
Do you know just where it comes?
When I'm alone in this place,
Am I alone in this face of it all?

Can this be saved?
Someone else's financial gain,
I am not here to run away,
I am not here to break,
But it's all too far away,
It's all too much to take,
Can't you leave this place?
Do you even know it's name?
Do you know my name?
I'm not here,
I'm not here,
I'm not here,
I'm not here.

Some say it's the light that falls,
Some say nothing at all,
It's too late for you,
To change the truth,
You know far too well,
Each time it fails,
Who's the one there?
Who's the one keeping away from daring to say it's done?
