Track Name: My Infrastructure
"My Infrastructure"

I'm done holding on
with the cash in my own hands
Like the rain falls in a natural scene

Love's gone, but not totally shattered
by a stun gun,taking it's aim
at my infrastructure, darling
at my infrastructure, darling

You're walking with 2 snakes coming
out of your head, and nothing to say,
but, "I'm gonna hurt you anyway!
I'm gonna hurt you anyway!"
Always
Always
Always
Always

I wish everything knew its price
and celebrated with their hands, they're goddamned
Their hands, they're goddamned
Track Name: Stale
It’s easy to love just me
It’s easy to accept what’s free
From the ground, where my love sits
and stales

Rules and measures, bent not broken
Still we try
I wonder wether we have ever really spoke
While we lie

It’s easy to condescend
It’s so hard to make amends
From the ground where my love sits
And grows pale

Rules and measures, bent not broken
Still we try
I wonder wether we have ever really spoke
While we lie

Oh, I should have known better
than to talk back
I should have been quitter
in my soulless attacks
I took the blame
Complain about me

It’s easy to love just me
Track Name: I See You
ooh, ooh, ooh
Your salt
I see you
You're crawling through and you stung

I see you
I see you

ooh, ooh, ooh
I won't
Won't blame you
for crawling through my songs

I see you
I see you
on and on
but it's never enough
Track Name: Bound to the Floor
And you're having fun
but you've had enough

and you're self-assured
covered in dirt
'cause you can't feel a thing anymore

on the floor, on the floor
you get away, get away
run away, run away
on the floor, (you're bound to) the floor

And only you can lure me in
only you
Only you can bite off my tongue

You will conquer
and you'll defeat me
and you shall tell everyone off

You've come to skin me
You've come to skin me
Track Name: I'm Like You
I'm like you, I'm tired of the same things
Eye open, with this disease
We have brightly covered your eyes
oh, baby, I

You've got everything going for you
Why don't you have something going for me?

I suppose, you're tired of the blank stares
Condescend, with no degree
We have softly given up on our lives
And keep one eye
Track Name: I'm so Goddamn Lonesome
I'm so goddamn lonesome
I'm so goddamn lonesome
Staring at the wall
I'm so goddamned

Well, I'm waiting all
this wasted life
I can't imagine I'll ever be gone
To pass on a better name

I'm so goddamn lonesome
I'm so goddamn lonesome
Staring at the wall
I think of you

Well, they'll come a day
when I'll be gone
and maybe I'll just stroll along
with my blues
I'm so like you
I'm so goddamn lonesome

I'm so goddamn lonesome
And I know that you,
you are too
Track Name: Hints Toward the Dark
I got a dollar for a bum who will
Pick and choose who he take from
I'll walk a mile in his dirty shoes
He trades me for some booze and pills

And I'll be lying in his place
Ask for change, and they run away
And we'll complain about them

And the cops, they won't rot
And the pigs, they can't dig

And to the degree in which I complain
About the nature of the starving
Ain't doin' a thing

And the cops, they won't rot
And the pigs, they can't dig
They make hints towards the dark
Track Name: Don't Mistake this for Love
Strapping boy, got time to kill
You're young and bored, that's why you steal
Battling projections of
Your father, mother; you bastard son
You must run away with love

Balance is too hard to find
With no experiences behind you
And really there's no point to prove
I'm so sick of being with you
While I'm longing for love

Don't mistake this for love

Drop facades and move along
The future hold such pretty songs
I know my timing's all misplaced
Just look into my darling face
While we're trusting in love
