Track Name: Cold Gray Concrete
You were lost and I was dreaming
You were dreaming too
Look at you, look at you, look at you- knowing the truth

I never see you anymore
I never see you anymore
But it feels like before, just like before
Take me to your room

Listen to the churches flying by
Full of fear and all their lies
Don't fear to die, fear to die, don't fear to die
Before we meet

Been so patient all day long
Wait to fall off once I'm on
Won't be long, won't be long, won't be long
Cold gray concrete
Track Name: Bow Down To You
Can I bow down to you
Can I bow down to you
I won't be long- it's just to see you out
Can I cancel your prescriptions
Fucking fictions that touch your mouth

Well, I seen 'em in the well
Them cellar ghosts said 'never tell
about the times when you're alone'
Kicking dust up in their eyes
I jumped the fences of my mind
Give the dog a god-damn bone

I'd shake your hand
And then go tell you all the plans
But I got a bum wrist and a shaky voice
I crossed out all the lines and then
Drank up all your wine
You always had your own choice
Track Name: Whalley Avenue
The oil tanks in the basement blew
So sanctity could come to you
I know at times it gets real hard
But how much can you toil through?
When all the cops stop talking
And they just decide to shoot

Could've swore I saw you walking up Whalley Avenue
Could've swore I saw you talking to no one but you

I tried but can't identify
With the little corners of your eyes
That shoot me down and testify
What Christ himself did on the sly
Cry, cry, cry even sidewalk saints have to die

Could've swore I saw you walking up Whalley Avenue
Could've swore I saw you talking to no one but you

Bed bugs and bad drugs
Hit you right in the fucking mug
Disease and cut-up knees
Dreams that make you feel stuck
Sails take your wind
Twisted mind- all of your luck

Could've swore I saw you walking up Whalley Avenue
Could've swore I saw you talking to no one but you
Track Name: Don't Want Nothin' (To Do With You)
I couldn't sleep so I called out your name, called out your name
Price felt too steep so I brushed off the blame and passed off the pain
Are my friends really sheep? Are they all to blame for being insane and gray?
Can't think too deep or I'll off my own brain send it out into space, ok?

Don't come back tomorrow, we don't want nothin' to do with you
Don't you know you're in the kind of town where no one does what they said they'd do?

Slipped into dusk and you walked into light with a dead lover's might
Wish you lived with us in the cellar of white with your slight overbite out of sight
Symptoms and rust of your gone father's fight piss and vinegar nights sometimes
Picked a purpose so I seem polite self-esteem suicide and knives

Don't come back tomorrow, we don't want nothin' to do with you
Don't you know you're in the kind of town where no one does what they said they'd do?
Track Name: The Fighter Inside
Now's about the time when I start talking to myself
Now's about the time you say 'Aw Hell!'
But I can't pretend to know exactly where I've been
I just see your smile in the wind

Calling out to everyone who caught one in the jaw
The fighter inside you must be cross
Last I heard he had no soul and let fear through the door
Now, why'd he go and that for?

Hear me out of Jesus Christ just try not to pry
I've been in the dark oh once or twice
Couldn't lift my head from off the little pillow's place
Couldn't kiss my bed or set it straight

Now's about the time when you just let it all out
Flowers start to spout out of your mouth
And you can't pretend there ain't no places that you've been
Where you see my smile in the wind
