Track Name: good thief
where is you,
and what's mine?
in this shakedown,
i lost an eye.
swell,
as the day it came,
under heavy heat,
red reined.

i never took what didn't need,
i never took what didn't need,

slow the second when you measure me twice,
disappears like thieves in the night.
now it comes with a new face,
a soft lip with a bitter taste.
so mysteriously
so mysteriously

what a good thief,
such a good thief.

what here is stolen
what here is stolen?
quarters and tens (mac-10),
well i find amends,
when all is golden.
Track Name: i don't wanna let go
i don't want to let go,
you touch me right.
i don't want to let go,
when you hold me i feel weightless.

i don't want to let go,
you would drain me dry.
i don't want to let go,
don't wanna separate this.

and i don't want to let go,
from these feelings i've invested.
i don't want to let go,
as if nothing here existed.

i don't want to let go,
of a life i trusted.
i don't want to let go,
leave my reasons deep encripted.

i don't want to let go,
i don't want to let go.

i don't wanna let you go,
even though you kill me.
something like a chokehold,
it wants to consume me.
nothing but the worst stays,
all the best fades.
all the rest ingrained,
every which way.
and i don't wanna let you go,
even though you kill me.
and i don't wanna let you go,
even though you kill me.

i'll be fine,
i get by,
this i know,
and be calm when the heart turns cold.
Track Name: crossed lines
i dreamed
my world was split into
the lines i drew,
although there was another.

i would not put it on his shoulders.
or keep it for myself,
as i thought to do -
i would not.
i did not.

(oh yeah)
what to make of this.
ohh yeah,
held in and laid out.
(oh yeah)
home made a burn
i can never return.
(oh yeah)
no words when we pull away.

i felt the swell
and tasted metal.
saw it nestled in my tenderness.
in truth it was a long time coming,
a growing fear i could not put to rest.
while i was waiting for the sun,
oh child you come.
to be
just another line to cross,
before my demons find me.
and they find me.

(oh yeah)
what to make of this.
ohh yeah,
held in and laid out.
(oh yeah)
home made a burn
i can never return.
(oh yeah)
no words when we pull away.
Track Name: both sides
she takes,
all the relics leave me dangling on the plate.
till i said give me both sides now.
till i said give me both sides now.
till i said give me both sides now.

she watched,
and did nothing while the heart inside was pumping.
ha,
keep me here!
ha,
i do not fear.
what i want is to know it all better.
i find tongue but loose the letter.

be it all,
i can see high.
why you not there?
be it all,
i can see high.
why you not there?

she makes,
such dramatic sense of everything that quakes.
like, "the fibers of my soul are meant to break."
till i said, give me both sides now.
till i say, give me both sides now.

they moved,
and a strange defender rose to fill the whole.
subtle freedoms,
like the fibers of my soul.
better check, give me both sides now.
better check, give me both sides now.

ha,
keep me here!
ha,
i do not fear,
ha,
keep me here!
ha, i do not fear,
Track Name: blackwolf (evil things)
which you can you see,
the shadow where i come from?

travelers peer bewilderedly,
at a rising sun.

where the trouble begun?
where the wars were won?

there are evil things i done,
very evil things i've done.

now embodies the soul,
to be standing tall.
the common deceived,
and the lands will fall.

pervertedly perfect
as my fate should be,
oh that cruel thing being kind to me?

you never know,
who will throw stones?
who will fight to get right?
brother's gone weak,
and i rise up to him two times

which of you can see,
the shadow where i come from.
which of you can see,
tell me
Track Name: saturn
taken us for tools?
well i guess we
can't be cool in this heated mess.
trailing after sweet disasters,
who
can't be cool with these .

in rotation round a dream,
or make believe?
divert signs, while your take up time,
in a masquerade of changes.
with celestial approach,
and tangled ropes,
you'll burn stars across the sky. i hope.
you'll burn stars across the sky. i hope.

but you must decide,
when to slow down.
always want to fly.

the same old fucking fight,
another show down.
oh we're so uptight.

breathing fire down my neck,
i shake it off.
thought to leave you but i soon forgot.

waiting with patience,
and with pride,
and evil eyes,
you make journey just for exercise.
you make journey just for exercise.

and i put up a good fight but,
i can't win you over.

under thumb, finding reason
when the others start to run.
like a riddle meant to tease,
twisted words that drag me to my knees.

oh and you keep going,
slow the embers burn.
who pays for the time wasted,
on your saturn return?

oh and you keep going,
slow the embers burn.
who pays for the time wasted,
on your saturn return?

under thumb, finding reason
when the others start to run.
like a riddle meant to tease,
twisted words that drag me to my knees.
stay one more day.
