Track Name: Like This
There's trouble in the city when the lights go out and it is late at night.
There's people taking time to waste and wasting time it's sad to see them go.
Everyone around here thinks the same they think that they have got it right.
I wish that they could see what I see sorry I know it's not my place to speak.
I guess that I have you here to explain to me what all of this is for.
Sometimes I get a little scared and drunk and I come out with shit like this.

Oh how I love this cold December the rain somehow makes everything okay.
I wonder when I come back home if you'll still love the things I am and say.

There's trouble in the city when the lights go out and it is late at night.
People taking time to waste and wasting time it's sad to see them go.
Everyone around here thinks the same they think that they have got it right.
Sometimes I get a little scared and drunk and I come out with shit like this.
Track Name: Method of Madness
I replace the calender year after year,
the gloss on the pages stay perfect and clear.
I never remember to pencil it in - it's as if it never was.

The voice in my head, well it's wearing me down.
Always reminding me time's running out
If I close up the curtains and block out the sounds
I will not miss a beat.

I'll live on the stage and sleep when I'm dead,
make love to the girls that eat lies they are fed
once they get to know me, they're gone like the day
so I'll keep myself concealed.

So if you know a way (I know that one exists)
A way to let it go (I need a clean white page)
Don't keep it to yourself (Come on let's share it round)
Sit me down the truth must come out now.

The method of madness is new and contrived,
traditions and formulas always survive,
the people still buy it, the rules haven't changed
so the price remains the same.

A lover once told me she needed to leave,
could no longer stand being chained next to me.
Four seasons later a marriage and child,
for a minute I was confused.

So we count down the days 'till our favorite events,
promotions and parties we pay off our debts.
The day you were born loses significance
the older that you are.

So if you know a way (I know that one exists)
A way to let it go (I need a clean white page)
Don't keep it to yourself (Come on let's share it round)
Take me home I should not be alone,
Take me home I can not be alone
Take me home I should not be, I can not be, I will not be alone.
Track Name: Medicate Me
thunder in the chapel,
lightning in the street,
flood has filled your house with..
creatures of the deep.

guilty wives, chauvinistic crimes,
go get, get wise, confess your lies,
ungrateful dead, your blood ain't red,
don't lose your head, forget what they all said..

i need my medication...so medicate me.

it's strange 'cause i like to be clean,
or was that just me in a dream?
see you get to a stage when you figure it out,
when you know who you are,
and just what you're about,
and in all of its glory, all of these stories
must come to an end, must come to an end,

i need my medication...so medicate me!

medicate me.
