Track Name: Nice Girls Don't Explode
she waits
a rattlesnake of coiled up destiny
a viper pit of possibility
she's poisonous,
but not
to the touch

she says
that i'm better off as far as I can be
from her volatile, collected calamity
but if there's really no one left,
then I guess
you can take me home

and I've heard
all this before
waiting
behind the door
for the tiger or the girl

it's always one step forward and two steps back
and then headlong into a heart attack
one step forward and two steps back
and then headlong into a heart attack
with you!

the things
she cares about are few and far between
but that doesn't mean exactly what you think
it's just that she can't yet see the
wolves among the trees

and in the
stack of books she one day hopes to read
there's a note I wrote to promise everything
book marking long lost territory

and I've heard
all this before
waiting
behind the door
for the tiger or the girl

it's always one step forward and two steps back
and then headlong into a heart attack
one step forward and two steps back
and then headlong into a heart attack
with you

and I've heard
all this before
waiting
behind the door
for the tiger or the girl

it's always one step forward and two steps back
and then headlong into a heart attack
one step forward and two steps back
and then headlong into a heart attack
with you
Track Name: How Many Times Can You Make the Same Mistake?
She says she's sad cause she's stuck on the needle
But I know know I'm going to see her again
In one thirty third of a minute
Or however long
It takes the record to spin

She says she's waiting one more midnight
But I know, know that it don't mean a thing
a flash of her eyes steals the moonlight
and the world ceases to spin

Sometimes she smiles
When she wakes
Sometimes her smile
It's just fake
How many times can you make the same mistake?


She says she's sad cause she's stuck on the needle
But I know know I'm going to see her again
In one thirty third of a minute
Or however long
It takes the record to spin

She says she's waiting one more midnight
But I know, know we'll never make it til then
a flash and her knife steals the moonlight
and the world ceases to spin

Sometimes she smiles
When she wakes
Sometimes her smile
It's just fake
How many times can you make the same mistake?

Is this the same mistake?

She says she's sad cause she's stuck on the needle
But I know know I'm going to see her again
In one thirty third of a minute
Or however long
It takes the record to spin

She says she's waiting one more midnight
But I know, know that it don't mean a thing
a flash of her eyes steals the moonlight
and the world ceases to spin

Sometimes she smiles
When she wakes
Sometimes her smile
It's just fake
How many times can you make the same mistake?
Track Name: GEMINI
she knows the waters we're wading
but nobody knows if you got out
or if you're still out there bleeding
the girl from the zone said that you got out

that stretch of wood by the river
thick with thorns and concrete bones
we called your name to the river
she answers back with our own echoes

where you've gone
there's no way to get near you
where you've gone
there's no where to get near you

Now
there's nowhere left to look but the water
we're under the pier and it's crumbling down
are you still in this cold black water?
we, the people reaching out

where you've gone
there's no way to get near you
where you've gone
there's no where to get near you, now

where you've gone
there's no way to get near you
where you've gone
there's no where to get near you, now
Track Name: I've Learned Not to Ask
I have learned not to ask
or to seek your secrets out
when we're not by ourselves
it's like you're not yourself at all
so it seems

I 've got a feeling that
I won't be coming back tonight
yeah alright
until the feeling that you're not on my side
subsides


I've got to know, are
you who you say you are?
oh I've got to know, are
you who you say you are?


and don't you dare brush the hair back from her eyes
you don't know what you'll find,
if you ruin the disguise (i fear)
I'll never understand how you can talk
out of both sides
of your mouth
or ever comprehend
how easily we tumble out
of love


I've got to know, are
you who you say you are?
oh I've got to know, are
you who you say you are?
I've got to know, are
you who you say you are?
will I ever learn your heart?
are you who you say you are?


When the evening falls, it comes as no surprise
that I'm still left wondering who'll be there
when I meet your eyes
tonight

you're not the same with me
as when we're with those other guys
How could you know, who's got the truth of you
and who's left with the lies?
You don't?

I've got to know, are
you who you say you are?
oh I've got to know, are
you who you say you are?
I've got to know, are
you who you say you are?
will I ever learn your heart?
are you who you say you are?
Track Name: Decision Fatigue
is this independence?
my heart, wounded, leans and spins
is this co-dependence? no no no
I can't breathe and no-one's safe to hold
down here
I'm nowhere-bound
but sick of every face in this faceless town
I can't hear their words, but I feel their sound
build it up build it up build it up
now tear it down

chest hurts, breath burns, tongue tastes like dirt
never bleed, no never love, never hurt
never feel, never touched, never ever burned
never never never try to "make it work"

it hurts to be in love
it hurts to be alone
I need you I need you to know

no bright white light
no heat no spark
no nothing left for us but this desire in the dark
and these transmission hearts so wild
I'd reinvent my life if I could only find the time

I've never been that bold
I'm still nowhere bound
and sick of every face in this faceless town
I can't hear the words, only feel the sound
build it up build it up build it up
now tear it down

chest hurts, breath burns, tongue tastes like dirt
never bleed, no never love, never hurt
never feel, never touched, never ever burned
never never never try to "make it work"

it hurts to be in love
it hurts to be alone
I need you I need you to know
Track Name: Sleep Through the Winter
Sleep through the winter
curled up from the cold
buried in blankets
silent as snow

Sleep through the winter
summer is gone
fallout's still falling
and spring never comes

I'm going to sleep
Sleep
Sleep
Sleep through the winter

Sleep through the winter
all hushed and grey
the madness of moments
covered and pale

Sleep through the winter
til i'm back in your arms
all our anger and frustration
is dead from the cold

I'm going to sleep
Sleep
Sleep
Sleep through the winter

Sleep through the winter
til better days come
and nothing is left
of the summer's ruin

Sleep through the winter
til better days come
and nothing is left
of us

I'm going to sleep
Sleep
Sleep
Sleep through the winter
