Track Name: Stay Away
Carry me, carry me to your lips I'll be your cinnamon oh with sugar this
sweet upon my tongue it burns right through the skin
She drinks me: venom and pride; lonely on my kiss. Heart full of daggers,
dear, won't keep me here. Tell me who you miss.
You'll never let me go. Oh? It's easier said than done, I'm so hard, hard to
forgive I'll never give you enough. Felicity knows my name, oh oh oh.
Never doubt my sort, cause' I'm very hard, hard to believe, believe I done
did it all for her (for you).
Carry me, carry carry me down to your lips I'll be your cinnamon. If falling
in love's a lonely game, it's one I intend to win.
She couldn't sort me out, forgive me, oh oh oh, promises promises, hey,
so sweet to let them go.
Carry me carry me to your lips I'll be your cinnamon
Yeah, stay away from me.
Carry me carry carry me down to your lips I'll be your cinnamon would
you hold me again?
Yeah, stay away from me.
I get so high from falling down
Track Name: Hero
I've understated my phrenology.
It seems my head is far too wicked for this ride.
If I had your name, I'd wear it right 'round my neck so I could vindicate an
anti-social suicide.
And if you're bored of me then I have met the mark: another bipedal freak
cutting the future from his hands.
I like your world, you search for knowledge yet, you're learning how to
forget and forgetting how to understand.
My heroes all lied to me. Lied and lied again. My heroes have all worn
their welcomes out, they lied to me, lied to me.
I'll never be a hero oh oh oh oh oh uh oh oh.
How can you ever say I've ever said enough?
Or sold a soul to select a new vision for re-visioning?
See, I'm the real McCoy: an empty vessel that never sleeps. You'll find that
I work much better when I have been suffering.
And if you're bored of me then I have raised the bar, a little too high, a
little too high to wrap your head around.
I like your world, it's full of fragile facts. At least they're easily replaced
when easier reasoning is found.
My heroes all lied to me. Lied and lied again. My heroes have all worn
their welcomes out, they lied to me, lied to me.
I'll never be a hero oh oh oh oh oh uh oh oh.
I'll be forgotten.
You don't mind me? Well I suppose you did. A grinning groveling buffoon.
Teacher teach me how to live. And when I wear you out. What will you
wear for me? Nothing at all.
My heroes are dead dead dead dead.
Cool you: my god; I'd make you see, one violent word. One violent me. I
kiss your lips. I stole your voice and now you know.
I'll never be a hero
Track Name: Forever
She says that I'm not enough
How would you know?Oh, the measure of a man is to hold his breath and see how far he can go
Are you watching closely, are you breathing this in? A pose imperfect is
probably a political plan, repeat, the plan is probably a plea to repeat the
pose, indeed indefinite effort is effortlessly imposed upon the cost of
living like it is not worth living and if it is not worth living then I guess
you could put your money back in. My priest gives (me) proverbs in prose
and my pretend friend don't know whether when coming or going you're
ever gone for sure. And I get rude but I get by unseen and I know that
you never saw what you said, but now you know what I mean, I hope you
figure this out, I hope you bend when I sway, I said "Forever" but I never
mean a word that I say.

She lies under every kiss I made to you, it should be obvious, obvious,
obvious that I never do anything but wander 'bout my name, it should be
obvious obvious, obvious you're not ready.
Slow it down, slow it down now, but don't you ever calm it down now
We're broken numbers trying to keep on fixifyin' like batteries gone dry
but still we keep on twitching crying. Remember way back when I called
you a friend? And now your phone don't never work but still I try it again
and again.
I muh muh muh mumble when you come in too close, so kuh keep your
fingers for fumbling less familiar clothes, just like the dressing up tongue
that puts the question to test: whether divesting is better than simply
getting undressed. And I get rude; I get by unobserved and I know that
you never saw what you said but now you know what I heard. I hope you
figure this out, I hope you bend when I sway, I said "forever" but I didn't
mean for ev-er-ee day.
She lies un-der every kiss I made with you, it should be obvious, obvious,
obvious that I never do anything but wonder why I stay. It should be
obvious, obvious, obvious you're not ready.
For you. Lover. I'm not. Ready. You're not. Ready. Are you?
Gimme the keys to your world, drown by your love or I'll drown here
alone
Good intentions on my tongue, wave goodbye to everyone
Gimme the keys to your tower, saved by your love or I'll set me a-fireCount my blessings underserved, wave goodbye to planet earth
Gimme the choices I've left, a broken heart hardly defines a regret
Let me go or show me how to live, am I messing this up too?
I don't know, I don't know, but I think so, I don't know I just don't know,
but I think so.
Don't move a muscle 'cause I ain't finished yet, I said I love you but I'm
prone to forget, I hope you hate me when you figure this out, I said
"forever" but forever's in doubt
Track Name: theunion
gonna make amends.
gonna breathe it up.
when it's not enough, hope God assumes that I'm playing my part.
I hope you dream of love and when you kiss His lips, you'll be a lot like
me, a lot like me a lot like me. But forget.
That promises are promises broke. Sing those words. See, it's easier to
move, where the lesson's never learned.
I hope you dream of love and when you wake, you'll be a lot like me, a lot
like me, a lot like me. But don't wait.
Unless I'm wrong, unless I'm wrong somehow. Father ain't much, mother
ain't love and God gives a damn about us all. I make my misery shine so
bright I leave it tattooed on my skin and unless I die, I'm never alone.
Never again.
No, you ain't a lot like me.
I'm never alone never ever again.
If the sun is too far, or the moon too great. Like the bloom behind my
words: shadowed bones and old mistakes. I hope you dream of love and
while you sleep, be a lot like me a lot like be a lot like me some shiny
day.
Oooh yeah.Sinful man, sinful man, behold: my brethren. Breathless sit still, sit still,
sit still, still still, are you proud of me now? I am amazed, amazed you
dream of love, a lot like me a lot like me. but you never wanna give it up.
don't give up.
Unless I'm wrong. Unless I'm wrong somehow. Glad it ain't much,
murdering love, 'cause I give a damn about you all. I make my misery
shine so bright, I leave it tattooed on my skin. Unless I die, I'm never
alone, never again never again. No no you ain't a lot like me.
I'm never alone never ever again. I ain't ever alone never ever again
