Track Name: Nine Lives
I wish I had nine lives
So I could die seven or eight times
And by the seventh or eighth time around
I'll figure out what I wanna do with the rest of my life

I wish I had the guts
To keep my eyes from closing shut
Cause every time that you walk by
I wanna die, I can't live like this for the rest of my life

I wish I had the brains
To keep real life outside from games
Cause sometimes I don't give a fuck
And sometimes I just wanna change

There's a ticking alongside my heartbeat
Tat's bound to go off anytime
And if I don't call the bomb squad to cut me off
I'll have to lie and insist that I'm fine

I wish I had nine lives
So I could die seven or eight times
And by the seventh or eighth time around
I'll figure out what I wanna do with the rest of my life
Track Name: Mean
Maybe if we put ourselves together, we can find what makes us tick
We'll chain them to our brows in hopes these mantras start to stick
But before my skin can grow I musn't stray far from my roots
Cause I know that I'm dishonest when I say I love you too

Every girl I've ever been with only gets the gist
When I sharpen up my words and I loosen up my lips
I can't believe what I'm hearing, trying to find what to say
Something tells me that I'm better off without you anyway

I will set myself on fire so that I will feel better
And I'll pull out all my teeth and stuff the holes with feathers
So when I start to bleed, I will bleed on the floor
Got so many stains, I don't need anymore

I will go to the moon and I'll feel a little lighter
Then I'll go to the sun and I'll burn a little brighter
But when I go home I will feel like shit
I feel like shit
I feel like shit
Track Name: Metzler
At night I can still hear you whispering
Can you hear me whimper right outside your ear?
Do you talk back to the snowfall
Or ignore it til it grows tall
And crashes in the kitchen through your door?

Does it freeze over your body in the cold?
Do you ever wish that you'd never been born?

I let you in with the oxygen
Breathe you in then let it all pour out
Branded my mouth from the acid trips
Just to get your taste out of my mouth
Track Name: Sleeping Sideways
Waking up in a concrete mattress
Lately I've been sleeping sideways more
Lay with me and I can take you
Places that you've never been before
We'll run away and flee the county
State to state, maybe the country too
Doesn't matter where we go
And I won't care as long as I'm with you

Waking up in a concrete mattress
Lately I've been sleeping sideways more
Stay with me and I can take you
Places that you've never been before
We'll run away and flee the county
State to state, maybe the country too
Doesn't matter where we go
And I won't care as long as I'm with you

One day you'll look back on me
And one day you'll be sleeping sideways more
Track Name: Goodnight
My nose started to bleed
You said go clean it up
And by the time I got back to bed
You drifted off to sleep and I said
Goodnight my love
You didn't say a word and I said
Goodnight my love
You didn't say a word

I'd hoped you heard it in your sleep
I'd hoped you heard it in your sleep
Even if it wasn't from me

You said you'd had enough
You didn't wanna wait
So I decided to call your bluff
But it was way too late so I said
Goodnight my love
Lied right to your face when I said
Goodnight my love
I'm sorry but I had to call it off

Wasting your time like a drink
that I sip and then decide to throw out
