Track Name: For Once in My Life
Standing on the truth I've found
I make a noise but hear no sound
You were running through the rain
I brushed my hand around your waist

I was stumbling through nervousness
You looked up and I noticed your lips
And after one day I was running too
I held my mouth and I gave it to you

I think you're wrong, I think I'm right
For once in my life

My life, my dear, I've learned to steer
Track Name: Shiver, Go, Stay
It was a song that made you shiver
It was a song that made you want to stay
oh no, oh no
It was the saddest song I've written
It was a song that I had called "Nothing"
oh no, oh no

And you made me feel, yeah you made me feel this way
And you made me go and you made me want to stay

It was your smile that made me shiver
It was that smile that to this day I crave
oh no, oh no
It was your laugh that made me laugh back
It was that laugh that made me go insane
oh no, oh yeah

And you made me feel, yeah you made me feel this way
And you made me go and you made me want to stay

And it all comes back, it all comes back
It comes around in the end
It all comes out, everything's out
It's not hard now to pretend

It was your arm across my shoulder
It was the most sincere sign of embrace
oh yeah, oh yeah
And with your lips pressed against mine, it
It was the icing on a liar's cake
oh yeah, oh yeah

And you made me feel, yeah you made me feel this way
And you made me go and you made me want to stay

And it all comes back, it all comes back
It comes around in the end
It all comes out, everything's out
It's not hard now to pretend
With everything now it's hard to believe that we still did it
But immaturity it always wins
When both parties are steeped in their sins
The last thing you would do is resist
Track Name: Mary
In your eyes I saw a liar
Precious babe held close beside her
You're a face that's clothed in mystery
You're the anger deep inside me

Oh, you were the best liar, Mary

There's a hole you try to fill
Buried bones and swallowed pills
But don't you know it'll get you killed
When the needle can't sit still

Oh, you were the best liar, Mary
Track Name: Breeding Atheists
There's always a sense of danger
Lurking inside your horoscope
They'll never get it perfect
Just how you like it

There's always a sense of menace
Present in all religions
What is it that they have got
That you haven't got

The last time that you really prayed
And meant every word you said
On your knees as a child
On your knees wondering why
And then you found a bigger world
And the drugs and pretty girls
Now God doesn't seem so real after all

There's always a sense of faithlessness
Present in a purge of faithfulness
You gotta know how the opposites attract
Your doubt stronger than your belief
You base your ethics on mortality
When you die, you will merely cease
Or so you think

Oh, the last ounce of your belief was spent
Praying in the back of the car,
Hoping she wasn't really going through with it after all
And now her womb is full of wax and
You're practicing your incest
Of two liars, of two in denial

Breeding atheists
Track Name: Enough (when love splits)
Tell me what you want from me
Take all of our things and the kids

When love splits, so does our stuff
We wonder together if we ever were enough

Oh, the couch is flipped over on the ground
Those kids of yours are all out of town
Let's get back to why we lied
Broken glass and fallen vases
With your face all over my face, it's
Getting better as it's getting hard

When love splits, so does our stuff
We wonder together if we ever were enough
Oh who knows?
Track Name: Cycles (part two)
I'm gonna make a change
But everything stays the same
Everything will run its course
Everything will run its course
Everything will run its course
In a vicious circle

I want to hide away
And come back out one day
It will be beautiful
It will be beautiful
It will be beautiful
It'll be beautiful
Everything will run its course
In the balancing of opposing forces
In cycles
Track Name: Goodbye
I am here and you are always there
Lying on our backs with my fingers in your hair
Now I'm back and tired of the lies I spit out
You're away and full of patient doubt

I tried in vain to hold you in my arms
You never seemed so comfortable until you broke my heart
Now I've got these pills to take and photographs to burn
I never took it seriously until it hurt

Distance is the lover of my ghost
It never really mattered until it mattered most
Now I've got to take my shoes and try a way to walk
"Just hold my hand, we don't have to talk"

One day I will say goodbye again
I've learned to accept it because of how I've been
I'll never cry in public and I'll wear a happy mask
'Cause any of these days could be my last
Any of these days could be my last
Any of these days could be my last
