Track Name: Gift Horse
One, two, three, you said you love me
But you just wanted the company
Now my heart’s an empty book
Once filled with pages you overlooked
The binding all torn and frayed
But you don’t have to lie anymore
No, you don’t have to speak

One, two, three, you’re ashamed of me
You said it to my face so blatantly
Now you haunt with hounds and hooks
In the shallows of the life you shook
So empty, so desperately
You don’t have to hide anymore
No, you don’t have to see me

The gift horse has a big mouth
And you’re the talk of the town
What goes around will burn us all down

You don’t have to lie anymore
No, you don’t have to speak

One, two, three, you said you love me
But you just wanted the company
Track Name: Dead & Gone
Dead & Gone

If I could hold the Atlantic Ocean in my hand
Would you believe a word I said?
And submit your best deception for the truth
I don’t hate myself but I’d change for you
Said the dawn will burn down
This two star motel rat town
You look lost, profound!
Compel infection underground
On and off these chalk lines fall

We are all dead and gone

If I could align the damned with this campfire song
Would you drink yourself asleep on the drive home?
And sink from the weight of your skull bashing through
I wouldn’t kill myself but I’d hang for you
Said the dawn will burn down
This two star motel rat town
You look lost, profound!
Compel infection underground
On and off these chalk lines fall

We are all dead and gone
Track Name: Shapes and Shades
In pieces we hang
Bats in a cave
Swinging through sleep
Dreaming though day
To wake at night and prey but I’m not proud
This blood on my hands is evidence for these sins now

When I said I wanted to die, I meant it
When I said I loved you so, I meant it
Lines and lies bending through truth intended
I’d give you everything I had if I hadn’t spent it

You harmless joke
You catastrophe
I hang from your symmetry
You dead weight on my memory
I shame to fake a cancer aches
My sheets wear your stain; my teeth share your taste

When I said I wanted to die, I meant it
When I said I loved you so, I meant it
Lines and lies bending through truth intended
I’d give you everything I had if I hadn’t spent it

Hell is so welcoming with mats out
Heathens dancing in the windows of a winter house
Shapes and shades spinning in a perfect motion locked
Am I the ballerina in the center of your jewelry box?

When I said I wanted to die, I meant it
When I said I loved you so, I meant it
Lines and lies bending through truth intended
I’d give you everything I had if I hadn’t spent it

Hell is so welcoming with mats out
Heathens dancing in the windows of a winter house
Shapes and shades spinning in a perfect motion locked
Am I the ballerina in the center of your jewelry box?
