Track Name: The Only Car
One more night, one more fight
I should stay, but I don't
Return to set things right,
but she won't, she won't, no, no, no

Raise my arms and pray aloud:
"Make clear all that evil shrouds.."

She asks me if I might
get scared, what a joke!

We live on rubber wheels
waiting for changing lights
Crimson, one breath I steal
then it's back to the fight, oh, oh, no

One day we will drive so far
we will be the only car

A silly way to feel, but it
keeps my head screwed on tight

Conscious in bed at last
still wanting, still fatigued
Thoughts, visions, reveries pass
things a sad heart decreed, oh, oh, oh

I lean over, meet her gaze
Dreamt we both of better days

When nothing moves too fast
and we've got all we need, yeah, yeah, yeah_
Track Name: Leave the Light Off
Leave the light off, leave the light off
It's fine the way it is in here
fine the way it is, my dear
Leave the light off, leave the light off
One less dime we have to pay
nightmares find us either way

Sleep_

Where are my spirits? Bring me my wine
Can't print what I must now forget
may tell you in time, my pet
Leave the light off, I said it's fine
let whiskey put us both to bed
tryin to forget all I've said

Sleep_

When I wake up I start to think
Slow at first, my memory burns
then all at once, it all returns
You can run on when you drink
but there's no dimension you can hide in
hunting is what dreams take pride in

Sleep_

Leave the light off
I'm alright
But how far to the nearest star?
Could I make it there tonight?

Sleep..
Track Name: Hate Like Me
I'm worried I'm just next in line
another tale of tragedy
A horror story you relay
so women stay away from me
I'll probably hurt you, can't you tell?
Conceited, and so purely vain
I'm only sane enough to know
if you should leave, I must remain

And though I'm sure you say we all do things we hate
you couldn't hate like me
at Satan's gate, like me
Sure you say we all do things we hate
but you don't hate like me, you couldn't hate like me

We could forego the childish play
and you could stay alone and free
I would condone, I'd not betray
or, come what may, no matter to me
But do you not feel doubt creep in?
A taste that follows what feels right
When boldness gathers us within
our skin is gold in candlelight

And though I'm sure you say we all do things we hate
you couldn't hate like me, at such a rate like me
Sure you say we all do things we hate
but you don't hate like me, you couldn't hate like me

If you're opposed to pain, then run
I've got a gun called love you see
And any fool can fire a round
but now the fool you've found is me
My heavy heart's on your account
the waves of pity pull me down
I'll never reconcile this fate
these silly songs shall still abound

And though I'm sure you say we all do things we hate
you couldn't hate like me
it never sates, you see
Sure you say we all do things we hate
but you don't hate like me
You couldn't hate like me at all
