Track Name: Angel No More
You loved the girl I was for you
Since we're trying out the truth I'll say I loved her, too
All fear and sadness steeled away
And she heard you call her angel almost every day

And still she's the only one who can comfort you
As I'm shattering your world

For the first time I put myself ahead of you and
For my next crime I tell them what you liked to do
And though you stick me to the climb
It's you who knocked me down
Now I'm falling falling all the way home
I'm your angel no more

Those books of how they injured you
Though I chose one every night for each you gave me two
Those vile shows you made me see
Well now you're trapped in that attentive crowd beholding me
And just for old times let's call it consensual
The accoutrements of love

For the first time I put myself ahead of you and
For my next crime I tell them what you liked to do
And though you stick me to the climb
It's you who knocked me down
Now I'm falling falling all the way home

She shot it so it seemed alright
Disgusting but in better light
A profile view of who you'd like to be
But let us say her soul chose birth
Divinity gets sick on earth
Now every breath she takes is one from me

For the first time I put myself ahead of you and
For my next crime I tell them what you liked to do
Now all the bells of heaven chime
It's you who knocked me down
Now I'm falling falling all the way home
I'm your angel no more
I'm your angel no more
I'm your angel
I'm your angel no more
I'm your angel
I'm your angel no more
Track Name: Terrible Thing To Dream
Can't believe that I am sitting here
Embers of my eminent career burning
Dropped my pennies in the wishing well
Spent more than I'd ever care to tell yearning
This is not my name, is not my life, my happy ending
It's the worst thing
It's a terrible thing to dream
To dream

All the tricks to life I thought I knew
Ends up that no matter what you do you fall
Smile each time he cares to make a pass
Mind and soul are lips and tits and ass, that's all
There's a life that's good, a life that's mine, I'll never know now
It's the worst thing
It's a terrible thing to dream
To dream

I've come looking for the safest place to hide from what I fear
There's no love to fill this vacancy inside
And yet I'm home
Here to stay

This is not my name, is not my life, my happy ending
It's the worst thing
It's a terrible thing to dream
To dream
Track Name: Love, I Think It Can Wait
I'd have thought I'd be seventeen
Enchanted by your charms
You'd become a man beside me
I'd survive my youth in your arms
Time has passed, I was burned to ash
Then rose up like that bird
Flew an ever growing distance
To unlearn the lies that I'd heard

So you've missed a lot and
Oh guess now I've got just
Far too many things to tell you

But anyway
Love, I think it can wait 'til morning
Pull the curtains away and let the summer night come in
Love, your kindness is late but warming me again

So let's walk through this gallery
And force ourselves to see
All the portraits of the other girls
That I was fashioned to be
Next to each in a gaudy frame
Imposing and askew
Hangs whatever man I'd found to give me
What I thought I was due

Those the quiet years I
Chose to hide those tears and
There, I made it all seem alright

But tell you what
Love, I think it can wait 'til morning
Pull the curtains away and let the summer night come in
Love, your kindness is late but warming me again

Love, I think it can wait 'til morning
Pull the curtains away and let the summer night come in
Love, your kindness is late but warming me again
Track Name: Anyway
Helpless princess
Delicate flower, swiftly unfurled
Flaunt your weakness
Like I have the power to shatter your world
It's a hard fight to do right
As your favorite villain

I see, baby
I'm in at zero counted with you
Impossibly
I'm also your hero, incumbent to do
All your biddings and worse things
Your crimes and your penance
Marking without tears the long years
Of your lifetime sentence

I could tell myself I need you
Starve myself to feed you
Find new ways to stay
I could chain myself to trying
But for all my dying
We'd lose each other anyway

You know it's so
Single intention for every move
You strike new low
And I'll never mention, but yeah I could prove
What went down here on Cape Fear
In Southern Amnesia
How all my snow drifts in night shifts
Weren't quite anesthesia

I could tell myself I need you
Starve myself to feed you
Find new ways to stay
I could chain myself to trying
But for all my dying
We'd lose each other anyway

This time I'm just gonna say no
Find out what comes after I just let go
Your bouquet of lilies and lies
Sublime, picture me in Bourdieu
Sky above me star streaked like a Van Gough
And the future back in my eyes

I could tell myself I need you
Starve myself to feed you
Find new ways to stay
I could chain myself to trying
But for all my dying
We'd lose each other anyway

I could tell myself I need you
Starve myself to feed you
Find new ways to stay
I could chain myself to trying
But for all my dying
We'd lose each other anyway
We'd lose each other anyway
We'd lose each other anyway
