LYRICS

Greed

She said it takes three years to process,

Well it's been four now without progress.

Yeah maybe I should quit comparing,

But I'm sick of hearing your whispering...

It's fine we parted how we did,

But your face haunts my eyelids,

And I can't sleep,

And I can't trust,

All I can do is dry my tears,

And sit in what was us,

And try to move on.

It pops up when we get to drinking,

Feels like I'm gone, and I'm sinking

Back into your greed,

The night of which you planted that seed.

But it was tainted creation,

My heart was racing,

So give me something to numb the pain,

So I can fade again...

'Cause I can't sleep,

And I can't trust,

All I can do is dry my tears,

And sit in what was us,

And try to move on.

 

And you wanna pray to the higher powers,

But you have no power in yourself.

So I'll find in me salvation,

So that it brings you starvation

Of the Godliness you yearn,

But have not earned.

 

And I can't sleep,

And I can't trust,

All I can do is dry my tears

And sit in what was us...

And finally move on.

No. 27's

 

No. 27's, ya feel like heaven.
Running through my head, then laying down in my bed.
You are so good to me, but you are bad for me...

No. 27's, already know what happens...
You're running this game, and supplyin' all of my fame.
How could I quit you with a love so true - that it'd leave me blue?

And when you leave my tainted lungs,
You say that I was just for fun,
And now I wonder what I will become,
But back to you I will not run...
I will not run.

No. 27's, ya feel like heaven...
Coursin' through my veins and I can't wait to see you again.

Moths

Light creeps through shadows,

Illuminating you in golden meadows.

The youth ask if our love ever mellows

So I tell those:

 

I never knew why moths love light then I look at you.

Our love was the only thing I knew was true.

 

The masses praised our love,

Whispers told we’re from above,

But even then, not all love ends with happy tales –

Those too must fail, oh,

We can tell ourselves that we were meant to be.

But tell me why, tell me why, tell me why I feel so free?

 

I never knew why moths love light then I looked at you.

Your love was the only thing I told myself was true…

It was true, oh…

 

And when the floodgates opened the whole ploy was revealed…

And I’ll tell you I’m copin’, but my heart you killed.

 

And I’ll never know why moths love light,

What once was there is now buried with you –

The truth, the truth!

Oh, I’ll never know why….

Eileen

On Tuesday, I drank tea with a skeleton named Eileen.

Her fingers were long,

And her lips were drawn like a frown, unable to move.

It was a sad sight to see,

And it convinced me to be happy, no matter the weather.

 

And she said:

“If I were to die – which I will one day;

I would like to pass in a forest.

For surely it is curious for a life to end where so many begin.”

 

So we laid her body in a bed of daisies

And painted her eyelids with raspberry tears,

And coated her lips with the Queen’s honey,

And covered her naked corpse with ferns

So that she could finally experience the embrace of a Mother.

 

Cause she said:

“If I were to die – which I will one day;

I would like to pass in a forest.

For surely it is curious for a life to end where so many begin…

Where so many begin…”

Wasted

I stare at you through cocaine eyes, boy.. and I think you're the one for me.

But when I'm sober I'll look and you say, "It's the worst mistake I've made to this day."

And then I wake up in a cold sweat,

the taste of you I can't forget.

I can't forget the way your body tasted,

especially when we're dancing wasted.

You got me high,

I'm out of my mind,

My heart's a solid line...

But I still want you to be all mine.

And then I feel the serotonin drip drippin' back into my head. 

Serotonin drip drip drippin' back into my head.

Same old, same old mistakes, oh.

Same old, same old, same old mistakes,

They got me runnin' back to you -

And then I wake up in a cold sweat,

The taste of you I can't forget.

I can't forget the way your body tasted, especially when we're dancing wasted.

You got me high,

I'm out of my mind,

My heart's a solid line...

But I still want you to be all mine...

Ohh, ohh, ohh, ohhh, oh-hoh! 

Ohhh, noooo, oh noooo, oh nooo, ohhhhh!

...and then I wake up in a cold sweat,

the taste of you I can't forget.

You got me high,

I'm out of my mind,

My heart's a solid line,

And I still want you...

And I still want you...

And I still want you,

I still want you...

to be all mine.

Woes of a Trying Baker

I love burritos but I love you more,

As you munch on Hot Cheetos say, “It’s you I adore!”

And you laugh that laugh

That sticks with me all day.

We ride down to the beach and you kiss my cheek,

Tell me I’m the sweetest girl you ever did meet

And I stumble, cause you make my knees weak.

 

And I will never tell you how I notice that I never frown when I’m with you,

The moment I am in your arms, I know I’m safe from all their harm.

 

And you are likened to an apple pie,

‘Cause you’re the apple of my eye,

And you like pie too so it works out fine.

And I don’t know where I’d be without you,

‘Cause my sense of direction’s shit,

But you’re the target Cupid aimed to hit.

 

We talk about our mothers and we talk about our brothers,

We don’t need anyone except each other.

And I don’t have time to worry ‘bout rent

‘Cause right now we’re hopping somebody’s fence,

And I feel so alive…

 

And I will never tell you how I notice that I never frown when I’m with you,

The moment I am in your arms, I know I’m safe from all their harm.

 

And you are likened to an apple pie,

‘Cause you’re the apple of my eye,

And you like pie too so it works out fine.

And I don’t know where I’d be without you,

‘Cause my sense of direction’s shit,

But you’re the target Cupid aimed to hit.

 

But even so, I’m an awful baker…

And I don’t know how long to bake pies for.

So let me know before I burn you away,

If you’re okay, if I can help, if you need a knock-knock joke…

 

And you are likened to an apple pie,

‘Cause you’re the apple of my eye,

And you like pie too so it works out fine.

And I don’t know where I’d be without you,

‘Cause my sense of direction’s shit,

But you’re the target Cupid aimed to hit.

Nectar

You told me I’m beautiful on the first of May,

And that you loved me on thirteenth of June.

We made the most beautiful memories on the sixth of September,

But now I’m sure you’d never remember.

I can still hear your laugh

Which erupts from the core of your being.

The look you’d give me after seeing me the first time that day…

Inevitable butterflies.

 

And you are the sweetest nectar,

And you are the sweetest nectar,

That’s what you were,

That’s what I was too…

 

Then all my nectar was used up and I withered away,

And you went on to find another garden to flourish in.

And I watch you past the perfect white picket fence,

Through the daffodils and peonies,

Among the shafts of sunlight…

 

And you are the sweetest nectar,

And you are the sweetest nectar,

I’ve ever tasted…

Ohhhh…

That’s what you were.
