Tiny Bodies 02:50
Only the good die young So I'll be around for a thousand years or so Strutting about in the dark Bright lights illuminate not enough pretty faces Scowl & move along Only the bold win here So I'll go ahead & get settled in I'll feel at home being the deviant I am Until the girls with tiny bodies begin to leave the room Scour the room a while It was if God had clicked his pocket watch & began the countdown So I fed my ego with a drink I took a lap around the room My eyes locked & yours did too We both knew our intentions So my dear, I think we've won Savour that glance we had

Joy 02:29
Joy, I'd jump for you High into the sky Up higher than I've ever jumped before Oh, I dream of all the times When your pigeon-toed goodbyes Were brash enough To never take flight Well, those simple things they always get you down I guess I'll go & be more passive now Joy, I'd love for you To be by my side So I can feel the breeze again 'Cause it feels as though I have Encased myself in glass & I can't see any love getting in

Glasgow Kiss 02:37
I sold my soul for wealth I guess that's the price I pay for it But if I threw away all my wit What would I have? We've all got egos to keep in check But mine's just about the best you'll get After all I'm waging wars with my regrets & my concealments If you're wondering & oh, I think that you are I've been slipping through the cracks of time Just hoping, Hoping that you'd take notice ‘Cause our future never looked so bright I've never had a Glasgow kiss I guess that's a way of asking for it But your violence isn't old fashioned you see You use your charm to hold me down & your contempt to beat me up If you're wondering & oh, I think that you are I've been slipping through the cracks of time Just hoping, Hoping that you'd take notice ‘Cause we had no flaws in our design

I'm all torn up about the weekend I just had I was acting out of character, an extension of who I am I was a great defier, the warrior that split the hairs between others Now I'm the catalyst of all the terrors to come I was on fire I'm not even human anymore I wasn't cold I could've warmed your heart for hours I was on fire But I'm not even badly burned Well, those Americans have got their sayings for doing well They say they're batting a thousand Well, I'm batting a hundred now I was the patriarch, the definition of a proud, learned man But all those days, they've all gone to shit I keep throwing myself into flames just trying to ignite Orange & yellow warmth tonguing at my sides I should be gone, but I could not get closer to a perfect state Make no mistake; I'm just a man that makes mistakes
