Track Name: white girls on cocaine
night on city falls
and she do look fine
in these streets there's a bounty
and it's surely mine
please don't say something didactic
i only learn from illness
i am that sick

head drops to the bar
so I step outside
how many times
have we destroyed this dive?

how many times?
how many times?
no, but really,
how many times?

got no motavation
got no motavation
lacking in employment
lacking education

drugs
& punks &
dancing
white girls
on cocaine

junkie at dawn
no she don't feel tired
"this is illegal
can you close the blinds?"

Her: "You can rack it up while I get naked
and don't ask for money
cos i don't got shit"

she got the covers drawn
and I step outside
now i'm wondering
why i'm not satisfied

never satisfied
never satisfied
no, not really
never satistied

got no motavation
got no motavation
lacking in employment
lacking education

drugs
& punks &
dancing
white girls
on cocaine
Track Name: black hair red lips
she's getting high tonight
and she'll do it again
and laugh at every boy in her town
she's out tonight
so don't you wait up
she can't be held
by the clock
or your hands

her secrets have secrets

she's a trip
trust me I know

is there a kinder way to say
she won't be coming home to you tonight

i mean, look at her
black hair, red lips
just look at her
black hair, red lips

i fell once and i will not fall again
don't you dare think i want to share your fate
but its hard to resist
i can not help myself

her secrets have secrets

she's a trip
trust me I know

is there a kinder way to say
she won't be coming home to you tonight
Track Name: trembling bells
so,
tell me why you fought back
tell me, tell me
is life not nearly enough?

so, tell me why you fought back
tell me, tell me
am I pretending now?

how many senses cracked your flesh
laying nude in the lightless bed
wild heaven living at your feet
as dream country calls back to me

anne, was there any going back
tell me, tell me
is all eternity now?

colored in your own black
deadly, deadly
so oh tempting oh

oh so don't tempt me
don't tempt me
oh
are trembling bells,
ringing?
Track Name: peak shadow
since there is nothing else
and I resign
from all those empty chances
at common life
where I don't have the answers
so always I'm
searching for the purpose
of the purpose, of the
purpose behind purpose
of the purpose

as thy will be done
my will is numb
temptation won't turn me down
is it dark yet
i'm holding aluminum over fire
and in that proven love:
I analyze myself


Down in the city
rumor rumor
They say I'm not doing well
well I've something for that hurt
they'll have to be happy for themselves

as thy will be done
my will is numb
temptation won't turn me down
is it dark yet
i'm holding aluminum over fire
and in that proven love:
I analyze myself

I lose it sometimes

sitting on my bed
waiting for the flash
and yes I'm alone,
but not lonely
and i know i should stop
i don't know if i can
