Track Name: Vultures
Wakin' up alone
Shaken to the bone
Fakin' my whole life just for you

Wide-eyed in the morning
Tongue-tied to my doorknob
Outside they're swarming round my head

Them vultures are circling

Trapped inside a nightmare
With myself in ten years
Looks like my worst fears all come true

He forgets about me
And becomes everything
I promised myself I would never be

Them vultures are circling

There's no threat above my head
The vultures are the thoughts I make
I should turn them into pets
I should try to join the wake
and we could feed on what I'll be
If I don't become everything
I fear that I'm not brave enough to be

Them vultures are circling
Track Name: Ghost
Can you see me?
Am I real?
I don't think you know what I feel

If you cut me
Would I bleed?
Would you even hear me if I scream

All in all I feel like a ghost

Do you think
You know what I am?
I can promise you won't understand

This place
Is underneath my skin
I watch the walls closing in

All in all I feel like a ghost

I can feel my molecules dissolving
All my thoughts turn into gaseous waste
I can hear you whispering "Goodbye dear"
I can taste the rotting and decay

I'm drenched in the tears of the funeral
The infinite weight too much to bare
But I think of everyone who said they loved me
And I'm stronger than anyone could dare

All in all I feel like a ghost
Track Name: Champagne and Tequila
It's been a while now
I think I can talk about
The terrible night that you lost control

We were driving and driving
You were spinning and swerving
Latching on to each car that we passed

Then smell of champagne and tequila
You might not remember
You couldn't feel but I could feel ya
The smell of champagne and tequila

The smell of Champagne and Tequila

I'd say I forgive you
but I don't think you're sorry
I'd tell you how it felt if I thought you gave a fuck

Enjoy your hall of mirrors
Cherish your dumb luck
One day you'll be the whole that you dug

Then smell of champagne and tequila
You might not remember
You couldn't feel but I could feel ya
The smell of champagne and tequila

The smell of Champagne and Tequila

The smell of Champagne and Tequila
Track Name: Swordplay
With my gun
Ever so tightly in my hand
She told me
That I'd never use it quite like a man

I lowered my gun
And I held my hands way up high
She laid me down
And she charged me with all of my crimes

She's there smiling
Widely at me
I know I'd run If she'd only
Set me free

I try to tell her
That I've never felt like this
She said, "Swordplay's for swordsmen
and you're just a kid"

She tied that rope
ever so tightly around my neck
She told me that I'd never
Hurt anyone again

With tears in my eyes
I held my hands way up high
She just laughed and she said
"It'll never be alright."

She's there smiling
Widely at me
I know I'd run if I only
Had feet

I try to tell her
That I've never felt like this
She said, "Swordplay's for swordsmen
and you're just a kid"
