about

This album is my first full LP, even though it's completely comprised of demos.

There's no production or layers here; it's all just done straight into a cheap recording stick. The quality of the songs is VASTLY better than Hollywood, but I should have not been so lazy and just layered these bad boys up. Oh well.

Track Name: Caravan
I packed up my things and I left for the caravan
My time is short, I was blessed without a heart

And I can see right inside your mind
All of the time
You're brighter than the costumes on Friday night
In a caravan

I shot myself up with vinegar and piss
How was I to know that it all would come to this?

And I can see right inside your mind
All of the time
You're brighter than the costumes on Saturday night
In a caravan

Come hold my hand
In a caravan
Come see my band
In our caravan

But I still see you every week
Sitting in the stands, trying to take a peek
And when I see you, I get weak
Shuffling my hands, stifling a shriek
Track Name: Caskets
The tide is coming in
Careful, you'll get dragged underneath the waves
Your shovel's in your little hand
Put it to the sand and dig us a watery grave

Don't let the caskets come between us
Won't let you stay inside
Don't let the caskets come between us
Let me see those eyes tonight

You're covered in dirt from head to toe
You know that look doesn't suit you so well
The one thing you're thinking as your breathing starts to slow
I wonder if they have showers in hell

Don't let the caskets come between us
Won't let you stay inside
Don't let the caskets come between us
Let me see those eyes

Tonight
I'll wait for you to come back home
I can't accept that I'm alone
I can't
Track Name: Hard Times 'a Coming
Why does every day gotta be so hard?
Why does every mile gotta be so far?
Why can't the world just stop its spin?
'Cause I'm dreading every night for the day to begin

I feel hard times are coming
And I don't think I wanna be here

Thinking about the future is so hard to do
When you don't think you'll make it past 22
Really kind of hoping for a hot ball of sun
To come and burn away everything that you've done

I feel hard times are coming
And I don't think I wanna be here

Soon you'll feel sad
'Cause you lost all you had
And you'll never see the sun or sky again
And then you may cry
You're not sure the reason why
But you never wanna feel this way again
And then you won't feel
Guess it's not that ideal
But at least you'll never have to frown that way again

I feel hard times are coming
I think they're already here
I feel hard times are coming
And I don't think I wanna be here
Track Name: Pale Rider
You're a pale horse rider
And you're wired in for sound
You can take the stage
But you know that I am bound

To fall in love
Love

You're unholy scripture
But I'll read from every page
Pretty as a picture
And that's just enough today
You're death incarnate
And you're bringing my release
You may have killed me
But it's not hard to find my peace

And fall in love
Love

Taking it from me
But I can't complain
Taking it from me
Don't know me by name
Shot me right into my heart full of shame
But you're taking it from me
And I can't complain
Track Name: This Fire
I walked into the sun, I was waiting for you
Thinking that you would be waiting there too
But when I landed, I looked with dismay
Thinking that I had been wasting my days

I looked out empty, my rose-colored eyes
Had faded and surely they spelled my demise
I lay down, tired, I scorched and I burned
As black as the sky at the end of the earth

God, this fire is cold
It's chilling me to the bone

I looked at you and you stared back at me
You said that you'd love me to the bottom of the sea
But that love doesn't extend to the sun
'Cause if it did, you wouldn't have to run

God, this fire is cold
It's chilling me to the bone

I'll wait to call 'til I'm sure you don't care
Too little, too late and a thousand yard stare
I'll force you to love me and show me your heart
Then I will take it and tear you apart
Track Name: Birthday
Merry Christmas everybody
Christmastime has gone
Don't you worry, it'll be back
Before very long

Wintertime is cold and sickly
The worst time of year
But there's not a better time
To spread some Christmas cheer

Christmas is Jesus's birthday

Gather 'round the Christmas tree
And read your favorite verse
Like the one about killing babies
Or something even worse

Now it's time to light the candles
And sing Silent Night
Going 'round from door to door
And causing quite a fright

We will sing until they join us
Croon right to their souls
They'll sing for the Holy Spirit
Or they'll pay the toll

Christmas is Jesus's birthday, hey

People think we're nuts
They don't know just what it's like
Angel of the lord
Spreading every word
People think we're nuts
But they don't know just what it's like
To be an angel of the lord
Spreading every single word
Track Name: Lost Control
I went driving down the road
I think I lost control
I looked up and I asked if I'm dead
And you turned to me and you nodded your head

I went driving down the road
I think I lost control

You think I'm so smart
You think I'm growing up
But I won't be coming home to you

I went driving down the road
I think I lost control
I looked up and I asked if I'm dead
And you turned to me and you nodded your head

People think that I haunt your home
They don't know that you're all alone
Am I better off?
I hope you don't lie awake in bed
With thoughts of me running through your head
Are you better off?

I went driving down the road
I think I lost control
I looked up and I asked if I'm dead
And you turned to me and you nodded your head
Track Name: Bipolarity Part I - Drag You Down
I saw you looking at my window
I don't think you want to know me
Okay, you can come up for a minute
But I don't think you want to know me well

I'm only gonna drag you down

You have plans
Which is more than I can say
I could do anything
But there's nothing that I want today

I'm only gonna drag you down

Leave me here
Keep me safe at home
I can't get
In your way if you're alone

I'm only gonna drag you down
Track Name: Bipolarity Part II - Changes
Nothing changes and no one ever will
The hand of time is creeping ever faster
But all we'll ever be are sickly little bastards
The planet's spin could stop at any moment
But we don't care, our lives already phoned in sick
People are flying and we're just standing still
'Cause nothing changes and no one ever will
Ohhh
Track Name: Aspiritions
I went walking past your house
The ground's been newly paved
Been seeing him around
He says that you've been saved

But I was there the day
We turned and walked away
And said "don't worry, babe"
I said I'll keep the faith

A thousand times before
I don't see the point in it anymore
When you can't come around
You were meant for so much more than in the ground
I can't see you
And I don't want to be the only one that you talk to
But I guess I'll do
'Cause I'm the only one that could never cry for you
For you

Leave your window open
Just a tad so I can
Sneak inside tonight
And sleep inside your bed
Yeah

Unlock the door
And run away
Don't believe
What all the grievers say
Thoughts you spent your pennies on
Weren't worth their weight in gold
There's no yellow line dividing this road

Leave your window open
Just a tad so I can
Sneak inside tonight
And sleep inside your bed

What's the point of living?
What's the point of waking up?
Everyone's going to leave me sometime

Leave your casket open
Just a tad so I can
Crawl inside tonight
And sleep with you instead
