Track Name: Art Robot
Fuck my six-month man and his wooden mind
You know the house your shit bought won't stay clean

Can a robot walk this way
Take the knife out I want to play

Get your fork out have some more
Like that like that you eat your heart out

Can a robot walk this way
Take the knife out I want to play
Track Name: Bedside Table
Can't say I'm waiting for you to make the first move
Breath gets caught in my chest

If you please please me like you should
Wonder would be a lucky thing

And all I see is your face
In the light from the bedside table
And all I see is your face
In the light from the bedside table

Hand moves up from its' awkward placement
Sheets move in, take hold, throw me over

And all I see is your face
In the light from the bedside table
And all I see is your face
In the light from the bedside table

And you belong to me
You belong to me
You belong to me
You belong to me
Track Name: Game
I could cover up the scars
Wash the water from my face
Is that what you want

I could shut it down
Stop the game
Is that what you want

I could throw it all away
Is that what you want
I could throw it all away
Is that what you want
Is that what you want

I could cover up the scars
Wash the water from my face
Is that what you want

I could shut it down
Stop the game
Is that what you want
Track Name: Long Awaited Sigh
When the dust grows over the path
What happens to the sweet leaves falling on the ground
Ground

And would you recognise the pain I feel
When you are drinking in the playground
Playground

Underneath my feet is the ground

And would you stop to help me up
If I no longer could stand for your lying down
Down

Underneath my feet is the ground

Get inside my long awaited sigh
Track Name: Where's The Door
Wading through thoughts of you
And your pools of blood red
We drink the drink that turns
Day into darkness

Where's the door
Laying down upon my knees
Until he sees me crying
Where's the door
Laying down upon my knees
Until he sees me crying

And I could take
I could take one breath away
Away from you

Where's the door
Laying down upon my knees
Until he sees me crying
Where's the door
Laying down upon my knees
Until he sees me crying
Track Name: This Road Leads Home
Have you ever seen my face
Outside the walls of the blue age
Far from the war we made
Far from the war we made

I know this road leads home
And I'll walk this road alone

Have you ever known my name
This name I own till my dying day
Far from the war we made
Far from the war we made

I know this road leads home
And I'll walk the road alone
