Track Name: Roadkill
Falling water
Pennsylvania nights
foolish daughters
in karaoke fights
i'm going to make you cry
I'm going to make you cry

Blue waters
California lights
falling lawyers
in bad acid tights
they're going to make you cry
they're going to make you cry

Cool little slaughter
and Manhattan sights
fallen daughters
coming home tonight
they're going to make you cry
they're going to make you cry
Track Name: Match
Poor Mr Right
Poor Mr Right
he's buried in the past now
Poor Mr Right

Sad Mr Time
Sad Mr Time
he knew it wouldn't last now
Sad Mr Time

and though it makes me wonder
still I'm filled with wonder

The stars in your eyes
The stars in your eyes
seems anchored to the ground now
The stars in your eyes

It's a cold empty night
It's a cold empty night
when they're not around now
the stars in your eyes

and though it makes me wonder
still I'm filled with wonder

Your Mr Right
Your Mr Right
is buried in the past now
Your Mr Right

Old Mr Time
Old Mr Time
knew it wouldn't last now
with your Mr Right

and though it makes me wonder
still I'm filled with wonder
Track Name: Plans
I had ambition
but lost those visions
holding scissors
and cutting out
pictures of you
and each incision
was felt by you
and each decision
was bloodied black and blue.

This is a sad rendition
of a cold collision
but if I'd listened
I'd have heard you
make each decision
which terrifies you
as each incision
was bleeding black and blue.
Track Name: Keeper
If you were mine
I'd make you pay
everytime
you'd say,
I'll walk away

And with the money
that I'd save
I'd buy a house
then I would
run away
so you might stay

And all the lies
that I would say
just to hold you
closer for a day

I don't deny
that I would pray
I'm holding out
to find another way
to make you stay

But if you were mine
I'd run away
my shattered soul
it wouldn't
last a day

Still I will
love you to the grave
and when I'm gone
you'll find
another me

and then you'll stay
Track Name: Moon
Now I'm alright
what do I do about you
open your eyes
it's what you lose that proves
that you
ain't The Moon.

If I come inside
it ain't the moves that you do
you covet your lies
those sad little blues
that you do
but you
are still The Moon.
Track Name: Goodbye
If you fear
what you should Love
if you feel queer
and you wanna jump
the lights stay on
but you lay face up
and the dark feels right
when it never stops
well this ain't goodbye my love
this ain't goodbye my love

When what they say is true
and you feel done
when the blue sky's cruel
and you wanna run
it's still not goodbye my love
it's still not goodbye

and the first time
that it comes apart
you'll know...
