Track Name: Moths
There's a half-spotted moth on my bathroom floor
It crawls slowly across it and a wing tattered torn
This plane of linoleum, it's final resting place
The crush of my hand ends a deadly race
Time is wasting on a half spot butterfly
Was doomed from the start and surely meant to die
I'm closing my window my lights dim once again
I'll hold no goddamn butterflies, I'll give no more an end

My window is shut now it opens no more
My doors still stay locked and there's dust on the floorboards
My window is shut now it opens no more
My doors still stay locked and there's blood on the floor

Everyday moth-men try to fly
Weighted down by gravity of broken lives
Drunk mother, drunk father, I saw you once there
You ripped off my skin and you tugged at my hair
Everyday moth-men try to fly
Weighted down by gravity of broken lives
Drunk mother, drunk father, I saw you once there
You ripped off my skin and you tugged at my hair

I'm trying too hard to pass by the days
With baggy eyes black outs and a pseudo punk phase
But my T-shirt has holes from the third sister's branches
My shoes have got soles lipped from your advances
Won't you see mall nights with stolen sushi are good enough for me
Hey bright eyes, won't you see, it's good enough for me

My window is shut now it opens no more
My doors still stay locked and there's dust on the floorboards
My window is shut now it opens no more
My doors still stay locked and there's blood on the floor

Everyday moth-men try to fly
Weighted down by gravity of broken lives
Drunk mother, drunk father, I saw you once there
You ripped off my skin and you tugged at my hair
Everyday moth-men try to fly
Weighted down by gravity of broken lives
Drunk mother, drunk father, I saw you once there
You ripped off my skin and you tugged at my hair
Track Name: Best Intentions are Powerless to the Horrors of Home
You are razor blade upon my face
You are abrasive, you are a scrape
Of the hair leaving my skin
Leaving me feeling akin to every bad thought that's left my brain
And when you say that I should just calm down
I know you're only trying to help

They say it is blasphemy, the way I feel
They say it is nothing more than a passing feeling and it
Isn't even real
They say it's a travesty, to be a little down and
I'm so tired of getting stuck inside this nowhere-going town and you know
When you tell me I just gotta calm down
I know that you're just trying to help

It's a fashion statement to be ok
To drink until your dead and dirty in the gutter day after miserable day
I am a pariah, in every sense of the word
And I keep counting days and hours and minutes and seconds until it's my turn and you know
When you tell me I just gotta calm down
I know that you're just trying to help
Track Name: Homeless Guy, STFU
16th subway never cost a fare
To every dirty homeless guy that congregated there
And I'm just trying to get where I'm going
Just the bat out of hell to nowhere

You're by my side on this lonely winter night
It's cold as hell and I'm not sure if it's worth the fight

But Starry Eyes you sure look pretty
An untarnished in a world full of shitty
I was hoping tonight that with you by my side
You would make everything alright

Everyone everywhere is dealing with their own shit
And I haven't really the time, the place, or the money to deal with it
The only change I've got to spare is a ramble on Nietzsche that you probably don't want to hear
A philosophical garble on meaninglessness and the taste of a 40 oz. beer
Cheers

But Starry Eyes you sure look pretty
An untarnished in a world full of shitty
I was hoping tonight that with you by my side
You would make everything alright
But Starry Eyes you sure look pretty
An untarnished in a world full of shitty
I was hoping tonight that with you by my side
You would make everything alright
Track Name: Song for an Eighteen Year Old Girl
This is a test for the best of me, a test for my tenacity
To live and love and love and learn, to take it with each passing turn and
I don't quite remember how I was before I met you cause
You're a prize, you're a charm, it's a luxury when you're in my arms

Just to hold you, every day when I wake up
Just to kiss you, is what my dreams are made of
When I see you, with your hair done up like a movie star and I wonder just where I stand up inside your heart

This is how I feel when it rains outside
I cross my heart and I hope that it never dies
That you feel everything that I do, every breath I take and I
Hope that I'm your boy every second of every day

I am alive with this feeling, what is this feeling? I don't know
I don't care If I die, with this feeling, this feeling of love
You make me smile every day, even as you're watching Ricki Lake
The most delicious taste, is the taste of your tongue

Just to hold you, every day when I wake up
Just to kiss you, is what my dreams are made of
When I see you, with your hair done up like a movie star and I wonder just where I stand up inside your heart

This is how I feel when it rains outside
I cross my heart and I hope that it never dies
That you feel everything that I do, every breath I take and I
Hope that I'm your boy every second of every day
