Track Name: Mir
man I wasted all the good times
being the victim of my own crimes

finally I’m free from my own mind

so sick of listening to myself whine
and never seeing the good in what’s mine

finally I’m free from my own mind

they say you lose your mind
before you find a soul

another fabricated savior
ain’t coming to heal my pain
and in the mirror are all your fears
with no one else to blame

finally I’m free from my own mind
Track Name: Auto-imune (badWind)
can’t kill the devil today
with these drugs in my brain
it’s all become so cliché
what’s the use in complying
to what I’ve been prescribed
because nothing finds
the balance in me

stop depression
get yourself in order
find a new girl
god I’m getting older
another breakdown
dig yourself from out the ground

all those times that I prayed
I’d wake up better and say
my troubles are washed away
just replay inside
and continue to remind me
that there’s no fixing this kind of decay

stop depression
get yourself in order
find a new girl
god I’m getting older
another breakdown
dig yourself from out the ground
Track Name: Dor Crônica
your bricks they’ve built
another wall
you hit head on
but fight the fall

(on your back again)

the light has changed
the wind is high
you’re not the same
the weight’s untied
now don’t look back
now don’t look back
now don’t look back
now don’t look back
no

your bricks they’ve built
another wall

(on your back again)

the light has changed
the wind is high
you’re not the same
the weight’s untied
now don’t look back
now don’t look back
now don’t look back
now don’t look back
no
Track Name: Blight
there was a blight in my life
then I saw you baby
there was no blight no strife
when I saw you baby
now there’s no blight
in my life

there was no light in my eyes
then I saw you baby
you had a light in your eyes
when I saw you baby
now there is light
in our eyes

there was no right in my eyes
then I saw you baby
you had the right in your eyes
when I saw you baby
now there is right
in our eyes
Track Name: Khorus
I’m not violent anymore
then I punch right through the door
it bottoms our it bottoms out
I’m starting to repeat myself
so sorry to repeat myself

I’ve said it once
I’ll say it again
I’ve said it too many times before
if I don’t know myself
does anybody else
I’ve said it too many times before
no more no more no more no more

I’m not violent anymore
then I’m knocked out the floor
it bottoms our it bottoms out
I’m starting to repeat myself
so sorry to repeat myself

goddamned too blind to see
what I’m supposed to be
Track Name: FPO
I don’t want to be alone tonight
I want to be temporary tonight
lorem ipsum dolar sit
I don’t want to be alone tonight

I want to be a placeholder
baby be my placeholder

I want to kill my morals tonight
I want to feel your void tonight
lorem ipsum dolar sit

I want to be a placeholder
baby be my placeholder
Track Name: FervorF
if I could change anything girl
you know I’d change your mind

man you really gotta loosen up
not everything’s gonna go your way
you’re gonna break if you keep it up
you’ve got no control
and that’s the only way

if i could change anything
you know I’d change my mind

if i could change anything
you know I’d pay no mind
Track Name: Shooting in the Dark
caught us checking our
reflections again
what a narcissistic thing
to do
does the image control you
do you force it what to do

there’s a hole in my reflection
it incarcerates my self
point of view
but I know it isn’t true
I would kill to start anew
Track Name: Crazy
we’ve all heard a song just like this
but I’m still in love with you
I die each time that I reminisce
‘cause I’m still in love with you

I’ve thought about it every day
no pills no drugs make you go away
we’re better off this way

every step I make is amiss
‘cause I’m still in love with you
I try so hard to fall in love again
but I’m still in love with you

I’ve thought about it ever day
no sex no skin no laugh’s like yours
we’re better off this way

singing this is crazy
but I’m still in love with you
Track Name: Sweet Pavé
now that I’ve ripped out
all my sutures how am I supposed
to be a man
how am I supposed to believe in a future
when all I’ve learned
is just a fucking sham
god I tried to move on
but I know that I
just can’t take it anymore
god I tried to move on
but I know that I
just can’t fake it anymore

(remember remember
the way she held your hand
remember remember
all the hope you used to have)
let go
Track Name: Votive
never right
it’s all so wrong

I’m never right
I’m always wrong

30 years ago today
I started my problems
but I won’t lay myself to waste
