Track Name: The Dawn
Out of the ashes, I rise
So in love with you
My dear, I fear your departure

From the flames, I rise
A burn marked heart
My love, ashes of our memory

The dawn of the phoenix is upon us

From the dead, I rise
A brand new man
My friend, our end is nowhere near

The dawn of the phoenix is upon us
Track Name: Weekend Cigarettes
Despite my demise
I look into your eyes and say
"I'm happy, I'm happy, I'm happy with you!"
Daddy's hands
They smell like cigarettes
But I have no regrets, no regrets of being with you

1,2,3,4

So why do you always leave?
Why do you always leave?
Why do you always leave me here, alone?

Much to your surprise
I didn't lose my mind
When you left me, you left me, you left me alone
Daddy's hands
They're wrapped around your neck
And you have so many, uh, regrets

1,2,3,4

So why do you always leave?
Why do you always leave?
Why do you always leave me here, alone?
Track Name: Blood of the Martyr
Unholy obsession
With crucifixion
Nailed by your mother
For the sins of our father
Jesus Christ, I'll penetrate you

Daily grace
Never left my lips
A noose made of bible strips and bindings
Binding me
To a book I never want to read

The blood of the martyr pours out of me

A priest collar to replace the noose
I never want to be a nuisance
To you
Or anyone
Pray at my bedside with me

Halo of thorns
Assembled in grief
Crown my head
Now the prince is dead
He's crucified, crucified, crucified to cross made from me

The blood of the martyr pours out of me
Track Name: Cassette 3
Something must be making it worth it
Why would I continue like this?
Something must be making me hate me
Who would love me like this?

Because I,
I'm not in now

I've loved you too long
Track Name: Namesake
Forgetful eyes that,
Long for forgiveness
Calm nerves that,
Can not create
Love so right,
It's easy to fall

I'll surrender,
To my last wills
I'll surrender,
To my memories
A sign of good faith for your sake,
Surrendered to a namesake
Sacrifice yourself
To my memory

Tired eyes that,
Chain choices to our fates
Shitty sleep that,
Ruins the day, it ruins the night, and everything
I'll surrender
To our memories
Track Name: The Crux
Sainthood are you achievable?
My crux is my lover's home

If I could leave you alone,
I know I'd make my way up
If I could leave you to die,
I know I'd be above it all

Put the cross in my box,
Cross off the possibility

Hands to pass down,
I could leave it all behind
Hands to pass on,
I could leave you all to die

Stars won't find your crux,
Why would the stars be looking?

Love to give away
Friends to die alone
Love to bleed on my time
The blood is pouring out of me

The blood of the martyr pours out of me
Track Name: Ty is Dead
In the parking lot
Smoking cigarettes
You confide in me
All you regret

In the courtyard
Skipping classes
Who needs books
When you're an asshole

Why do I give away all my time
To those who don't deserve or want it anyway

Ty is dead they say
Ty is dead so when will we be leaving here?
Ty is dead they say
Ty is dead so what's the point of being here?
Track Name: Coffee Can of Ash
The grace of the bodies
All floating in the water
The graves of my brothers
Are flooded by the showers

Return home to me
In a coffin made of glass
Return back to me
In a coffee can of ash

The lord's face engraved in mind
Stroking softly, laced in vine
The plum pit lay untouched
While the Quiznos had to give it up

Return home to me
In a suit made of lead
Return back to me
In the dog you never fed

Return home to be
In a guilt ridden flame
Return back to me
Exactly the same
Track Name: Vodka Bible
Press your lips against the Vodka Bible
Pray to David for financial gain
Press your lips against the lips of your brother
Cry as it all evaporates

People need to know
People need to go through hell
To find themselves

Put your dick inside the Vodka Bible
Pray to James for forgiveness and love
Press your lips against the lips of your mother
Cry as we all evaporate

People need to know
People need to go through hell
To find themselves
Track Name: HMSN
Suicide don't seem fatal to me

All my friends, they've killed themselves

So suicide don't seem fatal to me

We'll all hang out in hell together

Suicide, it don't seem fatal to me
Track Name: Go To Bed
Shiver as you lay awake in bed
Shiver as you lay in hell, under cover
Shiver through the night
My love, my peace, my light

Go to sleep
I'm dying to keep
A waking collection
Of memories with you

Shiver as you lay in agony
Shiver as lose yourself again
Shiver through the night
My love, my peace, my light

Go to sleep
I'm dying to keep
A waking collection
Of memories with you
Track Name: Live Journal
Deny my love for you

Let me look at you
And grow up in your eyes
Let me provoke you
Experience life inside these walls
Let me entice you
And wrap you in blankets
Let me hold you
And run away in my mind

Read you the bible
Hold your hands down
Destroy these barriers
Kill my passengers
Apply my thoughts

Deny my love for you
Track Name: Diana
They blended up Princess Diana
And fed her to the children of Russia
They gave me a medal of honor
For making love to my mother

All the same
All the same people
Died today

They told me I'd make a good mother
And gave me a golden shower
They let me give her her first kiss
But then they forced me to drown her

All the same
All the same people
Died today
