To And From The Record (free) 02:57
i left the program, when i was born to fight my way through it's demented thorns as time got bought, it was locked in the wall under glass the tongue slipped, but there's blood on every little word, oh yeah i ain't a fancy singer, no, no a self-circling thinker just go, goes so grab your heart and tear in two with your life there's mannequins, that begin where your pain and your love dies  i don't want to break all, the comforts we designed  i need to fold myself into a hundred different lines  maybe we could take the parts, that i destroy inside  and build a solid mental shelter from the memories that kill it don't make you bad to scream in the phone it don't make me bad to want to be alone as i get cut from above with a knife in the sky once upon a dark time, i had a bullet-proof vest on the inside

little black heart of mine watch you slip on this face for the last time a dark red hush is coming i was at a crucial loss when my true love had climbed out with any strong emotional pull, it leaves  bad dreams, and sending it home  where my beliefs are all letting go  completely i grew up in a shallow town with a dagger swimming around in language laced with nevers i was pushed until we fought in relationships it got lost divide the missing pieces, all while  it's helping me, to have no control  the boundaries, extinguish my soul  forever  laundry of ill memories  i can feel the background rebuilding  slowly

TG Gloom 04:23
i remember feeding a tender gloom locked the gray noise in a destroyed room and i remember burning the walls of youth walked the black hand with a cradled tooth it’s leaking, all my friends are on the outside they’re sleeping, all my friends are on the outside    a subtle pain sang as i grew tall shaping the words from the sounds that i caught saved every page, every photograph stare then left all my things to the devil’s head it’s leaking, all my friends are on the outside they’re sleeping, all my friends are on the outside and all the pain eventually dies   too soon   breaking the things you love in two then i heard the dark pianos come through a cloud you can understand carried me through a recessed room where the air has died setting a heart in a little brown bag it’s leaking, all my friends are on the outside they’re sleeping, all my friends are on the outside    and all the pain eventually dies   too soon   breaking the things you love in two

Seatbelt 03:00
opened fire in a solid home and you know there's no way to get back gave desire some room to roam now a cold, dead note travels over to me madness lies in love-starved bones with a gold tongue that's staying quiet you never meant to let this go singing low, with dead lips facing the trees looking past the window shield you feel a restless regret go caught in seatbelt fears and love giving up all hopes of ever driving this thing

Quick Ka 04:08
a death kiss that split the world, i'm going away been reaching through a lifeless hand there's no grace to stand this on, i'm going away i left the lights in my eyes all the way on  looking past the pain and the fear of a god   trying to fight it's way alive   take my life in your hands   and no thoughts i control memories defeated, oh, how i left it behind as november pulls me quietly down doors of forgiveness are all turning away to rebuild a heart by the numbers  this truth, is all in the numbers   trying to fight it's way alive   through the pain in your heart   digging down to the soul
