Track Name: darker than black (reprise)
birds in my tree
rocks in my shoe
blood in my hair
what's it to you,
how thick the fog
how deep the dark
i see you in passing
youre passive aggressive:
do you know where im headed
why must i grovel for
human interaction
take a hit. never quit.
(coughing and choking)
drugged up. i was so (un)done
wanted to kill myself
or at least a part
now im in the light
and i know the extent of the dark
come into the light
who can tell the two apart
Track Name: Human Gauze (reprise)
emotionally expensive, like love that is true
if i change my perspective that health will ensue
i am completely drained; i cannot live like this
i know that you want this. i know that you want this.
so whatever it is, it is all in my head
theyre defining mature the way i define jaded
so hav i gotten over it or have i gotten used to it
i know that you want this; i know that you want this.

breathe in. im lookin out for you.

so if i can relax, i can just work this out.
they tell me to breathe in; they tell me to breathe out.
they call themselves the light, that's foreshadowing
my daring is the light that tomorrow brings
all my sentences end in ellipsis. . .
if you are the sun, darling, i am the solar eclipses
is that harmony? or is that overcast?
you wern't my first. you wern't my last.
if not love, then what'd we ave?
a draft of blood. well, what is love?
a Human Gauze
soak the blood. soak the blood. soak the blood.

breathe in. im lookin out for you.

there's no hope kid. . .
Track Name: pay fir my rehab
patience... patience, baby
you gotta get this on your own girl
the train is hard. the road is rough

i talk to my self, do you talk to your self
when you talk to your self are you really honest
you talk to mirrors, face all your fears
you squint. you grimace. you smile with tears.
who's in that mirror? just another strangerrrr

patience... patience, baby
you gotta get this on your own girl
the train is hard. the road is rough

they donot want you. they donot need you
people come and go, every time
people come and go and return again with the tides
when will you learn, o heart of mine ???
dear heart, wont u ever learn
dear heart...

mama-- what a woman.
Track Name: blue pill
it was fun while it lasted & im glad that it happen, but all roads lead to disillusion, squandered opportunities & disappointment. i find it all so amusing, cos i donot give a damn, found my piece in apathy. so, i dont really mind, even though it's deadening. i donot really care that im in misery; should i really care about anything?

alive in the coffin, there's bouquets of emotions and vestiges of a regret. there's a ghost in the backyard; i have killed my conscience. now i just ignore the daemons. i donot feel a thing; i donot even feel alive. i canot feel a thing, why do i even try; i donot feel a thing; i donot even feel alive; i canot feel a thing a thing a thing a thing a thing a thing (why do i even try).
Track Name: cheat deth
i make t look so easy
s jus cos i know the secrets ;)
i heard you called me burnt out
look up, behold the phoenix
youre angsty n depressed
i know the situation
a few short lived pleasures
followed by annihilation

transient joys are the sweetest
listless lives are the bleakest
what have i become

i make it up as i go
im easy like the way the wind blows
you silly boys-- you poor kids chasing vapors
it's not a simple thing
it's quite hard to be human
butchu can make it fun
once you know what you're doing

transient joys are the sweetest
listless lives are the bleakest
what have i become
Track Name: EASY CURE
the womb is warm, but the world is cold.
i wrestle with my self for control
over my Self, the fate of my soul
suspended between paradise and a black hole

we could all be winners, it's the perfect game
just, learn to love, it's the only way
to peace, to joy, life beyond the grave
simply believe and youre already saved

live to love the rest of your days
to embrace, to see God's face
the truth, the light, it's the only way

This is the easy cure.

an inhabitable void within and without
just look at your heart, frustration & doubt
the pangs in my voice over cascading sounds
who am i? what am i about?

i try to live like there's nothing to hide
purity in body, soundness of mind
when you first met your Self, what did you find
a struggling corpse-- more or less divine

now live to love all the time
cos whenever you donot
youre wasting your life
it's the easy cure
you need christ jesus.

THIS IS THE EASY CURE
