Track Name: Calm Down (we're all dyin')
I should have gone
When you took that gun
But I'm still young
And you live on

And how is your tongue
Is it still caught up
I'll come with my knife
And help you unwind

Calm down
We are all dyin'

Send your goodbyes
Just one more time
And I'll leave you
To your own life

Calm down
We are all dyin'
Calm down
We are all dyin'
Track Name: This Year's Lie
On a cold night in San Francisco
Lost my money and my way home
In a doorway in Castro
Found my last legs of this Year's Lie

This year taught me how to lie
And say I'm fine

Woke up in front of you
Banged down your door
Found my head in a gutter
All drugged up with no place go

This year taught me how to lie
And say I'm fine

Almost made it out alive
But lost it all at the last minute
In the last place you'd find

This year taught me how to lie
And say I'm fine
Track Name: An End To It All
We could stay up all night
Pretending we are new
And we could spend some time talking
About the quality of time

Just as the waters will rise and fall
There is an end to it all

Having a ghost in my bed
Doesn't that make me a little bit dead
Spending each dime on a cure for my head
Is killing the time that we think that we have

We could stay up all night
Pretending we are new
And we could spend some time talking
About the quality of time

Just as the waters will rise and fall
There is an end to it all
Track Name: Room 304
Thursday's King
Slides up to me
Says "do you like to drink?"
Hand on my thigh
"Baby can you see the thorn in my side?"

One place this leads
Down a dark street
His hotel suite
Room 304
"Miss did you read the sign on the door?"

Traveling eye
Says one he'd like
To take his own life
He just don't know how
"Who's gonna say goodbye to me now?"
Track Name: Kid
He's a kid
Watching me
He's a kid
Watching me
For security

I'm alive
that's all
I'm alive
That's all

He's a kid
Watching me
He's a kid
Watching me
For security
Track Name: I See Cold
Your love is deeper than a puddle
Deeper than a puddle
A puddle

And your mind is calmer than a killer
Calmer than a killer
A killer

It's the cold I see
Icy cold
In your eyes
Icy cold

Wait un
Wait until I come down
Wait until I come down
Come downstream

And wait un
Wait until that day
Wait until that day
I let you leave

It's the cold I see
Icy cold
In your eyes
Icy cold

And are content
Content to be
Be alone
Alone like me

And are you happy
Happy to be
Happy to be unhappy

It's the cold I see
Icy cold
In your eyes
Icy cold
