Track Name: Saint About to Fall
Restless from the fury, I laid her out to sin. But she stayed to serve the night once again. Once again, in her is the end of all things, of all things. This worn out cast has dropped so low. A saint about to fall, I let her go. I let her go because in her is the end of all things. And once again, I laid her out to sin but she stayed. But she stayed.
Track Name: Don't Make a Weapon
Don’t make a weapon out of holding out on me. There’s nothing left but your sad sympathy. Hung out somewhere between nowhere and goodbye. Don’t let you fear turn to silent seed. Don’t try to murder more than you and I need. There is no line or time closing in on me. So won’t you come back and tell me something worse than lies that I can remember. What set you off today I could not read? Why must you always take it out on me? Because I’m not strong with you and I’m fading. So won’t you come back and tell me something worse than lies that I can remember.
Track Name: Light
I want to ride in the light beside you and hear your heart make a sound for me.
Track Name: All These Accidents
You starve me in little ways but I don’t mind. Lie still beneath the weight that keeps us on. So why is it everything or nothing at all when all these accidents seem so wrong? These little accidents they go on. They can’t go on. The hopeless comes in the night for another round. At poor peace I sleep in this stranger’s town. And wait for you to throw me one last time because all these accidents seem so wrong. These little accidents they go on. All these accidents seem so wrong. They can’t go on.
Track Name: I Speak to You With a Single Heart
I made my mind to wait in vain and hide beneath the warring lines. So near and strange I settled down, but there is nothing left here to be found. I speak to you heart with a single heart and a foolish smile that says I’m lost. I drag my feet until you’re gone and I’ll know by then if you want me along. I made my mind to wait in vain and speak to you heart with a single heart. With a single heart.
Track Name: Not Far From This Anger
Awake and drawn wishing away these lines of age. Watch it slide, slide like the sea inside of me and drown. Walk away and see how it feels without me. I did my best with what I had. All cool and dry and not so far from this anger. I move, ashamed at how sad I’ve become on my own. Walk away and see how it feels without me. I did my best with what I had and I’m not so far, not so far from this anger and you.
Track Name: With Stars Down
It’s hard now with all the stars turned down. Tell me what I did that made you doubt me. October, cold starts and sober shoulders. I changed everything to lure you away. To lure you away, still burning in my arms, don’t you ever get a little bit lonely? Jaded and fading let’s never look back so I can forget you. It’s hard now with all the stars turned down. Tell me what I did that made you doubt me. That made you doubt me.
Track Name: Sometimes Love Runs Out
I long often wondered if dark was the long way. It’s all I can see now from where I stand with you. Sometimes, oh, sometimes love runs out. From out of the wreckage no one cared to share. I wish I could feed you the rest of the story. Sometimes, oh, sometimes love runs out. Sometimes, oh, sometimes love runs out.
Track Name: Summer's End
These worn nerves are torn up and wired to the night. We’ll dress them down and wait until it’s light. And I’ll leave you a way out always. This summer’s end is waking and still we have to stay. Have my wounds healed and left you lying here? I’m walking in wishes right behind this fear. And I’ll leave you a way out always. This summer’s end is waking and still we have to stay. We have to stay. We have to stay.
Track Name: Without Fail
Pain is the only true thing you’ve ever shown me. You move like a ghost. Without fail this time. Set fire to the stars. Nobody chained me up. Nobody ever thought this is how it would be. Still shy and hopeful we were once sad strangers. We moved like ghosts. Without fail this time. Set fire to the stars. Nobody chained me up. Nobody ever thought this is how it would be.
