LYRICS

We’ve forgotten
Everything that we have learned
How the tables turn

Getting Rotten
How you like your apples
Choking in the chapel

Come closer so i can breathe you
Don’t judge i don’t need a review
This is a turn table read-through
Pleased to meet you

High on cotton
No matter where it came from
What have we become?

What we’ve gotten
Is never enough
Manufactured love

Come closer so i can breathe you
Another meet-cute to tease you
This is a turn table read-through
Pleased to meet you

Falsify the alibi and fool yourself
With a lie, a pretty pretty lie
Bite the hand that holds you back and feed yourself
Leave behind, a little piece of mind

My girlfriend is a zombie
Eating at my brain
It’s getting to the point where I don’t
Know which one of us is insane

This dopamine is numbing
Forgotten the pain
I need your validation
Like I need a bullet to the brain

Two steps forward one step back parade yourself
With your mind, on the production line
Surf right through the ignorance and save yourself
Leave the rest in the spiders nest

I feel it taking over
Questioning the things I thought I knew
One thing keeps me sober
Knowing that I decompose with you

My girlfriend is a zombie
Eating at my brain
It’s getting to the point where I don’t
Know which one of us is insane

This dopamine is numbing
Forgotten the pain
I need your validation
I need a bullet to the brain

Burn me up this bright red scare
McCarthy’s Ghost is haunting here
There are no gods just demagogues

This melting pot, that human swill
The lid thrown off, roll down the hill
There are no gods just demagogues

Everybody’s ugly
Everybody’s beautiful
You can hate me you can love me
We’re all chemicals and crucibles

Another game of truth or scare
Another lie for you to fear
There are no gods just demagogues

You can take what you don’t own
But can you hate what you don’t know?
There are no gods just demagogues

Everybody’s ugly
Everybody’s beautiful
You can hate me you can love me
We’re all chemicals and crucibles

Self-appointed chosen one
Self anointed martyrdom

Wake me up when its over
Wake me up when you’re sober

You can purse your lips but uncross your fingers
I predicted this, you’re gonna let it linger
Calling this shit bliss like it’s a dead ringer
Dead is what it is; I’m the grim reaper

Cause I can see for miles
You fill the cracks; You plug the holes
A medicine bottle
Filled with alcohol

The writing on the wall
has been covered in cold-shoulder blue paint
Say hey Jude
Your on retainer patron saint

You can’t escape life it’s coming for you
can’t escape life it’s coming for you
can’t escape life it’s coming
You can’t escape life it’s coming for you

Can’t tell you what it means
for you to rot here with me.
Your eyes, a beautiful shade of gangrene.
You’ve been through hell and back again just to be my girl.
I may have lost my mind but, darling you’re my world.

We’re falling apart in eachothers arms
The fever has enflamed my decomposing heart
Never thought i’d give my soul for a zombie girl
Well i’ll be damned

Woke up this morning, feeling half-alive
Though i’m decomposing… still gonna provide.
I’ll put brains on the table, you’ll never go without.
Formaldehyde baths – that’s what death’s all about!

Now i’m beside you, you’ll never be alone…
Maybe one day we’ll have a horde of our own!

Though you feel so far from me
Know you’re just a call away
If you’re needing anything
I’ll come running, I’ll come running

You’re not alone

Can you hear me
Twilight barking
I’m telling you I’m here
Tell me that you’re there

Locked away inside your cage
million plans we could have made
Dream about you day to day
Dream that you’re running, Yeah you’re running!

So far from home

Can you hear me
Twilight barking
I’m telling you I’m here
Tell me that you’re there

I’ll come running!
I’ll come running!
I’ll come running!
I’ll come running!

I would dream of you
If I could bare to see your face
Though I know it’s you
My dreams are full of strangers

Every one of them is mimicking your voice
Every one making melodies and tunes out of white noise
And white lies as I lie alone tonight on guard
It’s just another night

I would ask you why
But the truth and I have parted ways
In days gone by and I
feel I’m just a face in the crowd

So take it all, I don’t want it anymore
These deadweight memories,
This hoarder’s health-hazard disease
I’m tripping over old news, old news
Trinkets with no value, no use
Fighting for space in a mind so full of waste

I’ll find my own way out of this mess
I’ll let it go or i’ll have nothing left
If you’re holding grudges will you hold mine too

I’m not saying “let’s be friends”
I’m saying i don’t need an enemy
Trade something broken for something new

I’m caught
I’m caught
I’m caught
In the crossfire

This ain’t the way it has to be
How much life do you waste on me?
You hold grudges closer than your loved ones

I never forget a face
And i’ve seen both of yours before
This ain’t a game, why are you keeping score?

Left another message now I don’t know what to do
how has it been another year with not a single word from you
You used to look up to me, now you seem to look right through
Far from you, far from you

Breaking down the years to Memories and residue
Every new misgiving every turning of the screw
social hesitation camouflaged into the blue
Far from you, far from you

Don’t get left behind (I won’t leave you behind)
Don’t get left behind
Don’t get left behind (I won’t leave you behind)
Friends are hard to find

Never said goodbye you know I never wanted to
But I have tried a thousand times and now I don’t know what to do
silence unexpected after all that we’ve been through
Far from you, far from you

I need an intervention; fix my thoughts with a curfew
My Curiosity a gateway drug to jealousy askew
Built a conspiracy to satiate; to sink my teeth into
Turn the screw, turn the screw

Where did you go (repeat)

Gotta get away
Gotta get away
I said I Gotta get away from this place
Something in the way
There’s something in the way
I said I gotta find a way to escape

Woahohohohoh

You’re not the one I knew before
It looks like you but I’m not sure
Your words don’t sound the same
An undercoat of pain
And it’s such a shame
you’re not the one to blame

Take me to your leader
The one who’s in control
Don’t know who I’m talking to anymore
Take me to your leader (x4)

Phasers set to stun
got me on the run
And hun I’ve never seen you look so alien
Can’t leave you here alone
is this the twilight zone
I know I need to find a way to phone home

Your actions are irrational
isn’t that so fashionable

This has become absurd
You never choose your words
you’re seldom seen or heard
So much left to learn

Take me, take me
Take me to your leader

If I invite you in
Vulnerable exposed
What you’re waiting for
Politely Indisposed

I’m your offering
Shivering and cold
Can you taste my life on your lips?

Open me up
Open me up
I’ve got so much more inside
Open me up
Open me up
I’ve got nothing left to hide

Wind behind a wall
Words behind a fool
I’ll ignore the bullshit
If you pretend I mean something to you

Hiding in the dark
Hide away your heart
My strength is your weakness

Open me up
Open me up
I’ve got so much more inside
Open me up
Open me up
I’ve got nothing left to hide

Drain Me, Drain Me
Drain Me, Drain Me
Drain Me, Drain Me, I’m not sure if it’s me that needs you
Drain Me, Drain Me, I’m not sure if it’s me

Open me up
Open me up
I’ve got so much more inside
Open me up
Open me up
I’ve got nothing left to hide
Open Me Up

I’m still waiting for those three little words and I
Laid it all out nothing left to hide
Go grab your dirty laundry we’ll clean it all together

I’m done waiting around for the chips to fall
Grasping at straws hoping i won’t drown
If I don’t fall on my sword I’ll fall into your arms

This is your countdown
This is your ultimatum song
I know it’s not New Year but its a new me
you’ve got till the end of this song to
Tell me that you love me

I can’t take it I hate it I’ve been patient enough
Staring at the sunset i’m about to drive off
Are you calling shotgun or call the whole thing off?

I’m done thinking the worst this paranoia gets old
Hearing echoes of things I’ve already been told
I think this broken record’s about to break a heart

When i see you part your lips
I can’t help feeling this is it
Blocking out all other sounds
I know you won’t let me down

Tell me, tell me, tell me, I’m waiting
Tell me, tell me, tell me, still waiting
Tell me, tell me, tell me, I’m waiting
Tell me, tell me, tell me

Come on and tell me that you love me

You were drowning in the middle of the ocean
Heard you calling and i came, oh i came for you
Now i’m drowning in the middle of the ocean
No matter where i look i don’t see you

You walked right through an explosion
Was i mistaken? Cause the flames oh the flames were you
Unfased by the fear and the comotion
You smile politely and you say i’m just passing through
