Track Name: The Brokn Jestr
In the waking hours, flooded in dim gray light
Fearful and fragile once again fails to fight
The surge of anguish filling in the deepest holes
Then turns right over so the suffer barely shows

It's the first of April so let's hear it for the fools
The bitch because they've broken all of their own rules
Now paint your face up 'cause you've got a court to please
Make ‘em smile and laugh, no one wants your suffering

Now don't it make you feel alright?
We play and you dance
And your worries fade away tonight
We hurt but we fake it
And nothing's fixed, but it's cool
Just let it stay broken
For now you're better than us fools

The broken jester crumples where no shadows fall
With arms outstretched he cries, but no one's there at all
In a room of faceless strangers, some of them are friends
But few of them every really know you in the end

But don't it make you feel alright?
We play and you dance
And your worries fade away tonight
We hurt but we fake it
And nothing's fixed, but it's cool
Just let it stay broken
For now you're one of us fools

For now you're better than fools
For now you're better than fools
Fools like me
Track Name: Symply Sid
Vicious only was so in rumor and in deed
His performance lacked his only act
The drama no one needs
What a waste of space; of a pretty face
Other things so easy to replace
But it didn't have to be that way
He chose to kill it all away

And I see this in you too
I don't say this to be cruel
I say this to you simply, Sid
Because somebody has to

Rise up
Pull yourself up
'Cause the hands that help you out are fading fast
And it's the last time I'll ask you
Rise up
Pull yourself up

Barrett was a brilliant lunatic
And gifted basket case
A ticking bomb set to implode
Leaving dreams and chaos in his wake
His work left some to wonder
Was genius or madness true
But either way he was tragedy
And so my dear are you

I don't say this to be cruel
I can't watch you play the fool
I say this you simply, Sid
Because somebody has to
I don't say this to be mean
Wish I could shake you and wake you til you see
Your nightmare's just a dream
It could be a beautiful dream

A beautiful dream...

Rise up
Pull yourself up
'Cause the hands that help you out are fading fast
And it's the last time I'll ask you
Rise up
Pull yourself up

Rise up
Pull yourself up
Track Name: Drool
I’ve got the weight of the world
Pressing down on me
I just need me a new crush
‘Cause it’s distracting

I didn’t have to look too far
From my front door
And I don’t have to look back
There just isn’t any more
Just isn’t any more

And if you think it’d be okay
A little longer I’ll stay
And if you think it’d be okay
A little longer I’ll stay

Now I have nothing to lose
But they keep taking things away
Maybe if I didn’t choose you
It wouldn’t have to be this way

I’ve got the weight of the world
Pressing down on me
I just need me a new crush
‘Cause it’s distracting

I didn’t have to look too far
From my front door
And I don’t have to look back
There just isn’t any more
Just isn’t any more

Now I have nothing to lose
But they keep taking things away
Maybe if I didn’t choose you
It wouldn’t have to be this way

Now I have nothing to lose
But they keep taking things away
Maybe if I didn’t choose you
It wouldn’t have to be this way

Maybe if I didn’t choose you
It wouldn’t have to be this way
[ 2x ]

Now, you’re not mine for the taking
But you come for me I’m shaking
The words fell out like drool
“Would your girl get pissed if I kissed you?”
[ 2x ]
Track Name: Shiftless
She traded in her lace for ribbons
He laid in wait for his next victim

White spats walk fast
Down darkened alleys
Nice cape nice hat
Lure little dollies

Drugs and wine and dine
Oh, ain’t we lucky?
We’re feelin’ fine
Why would we worry?

Step inside
My shiny car
I love you
For just who you are

Step inside
I’ve got treats for you
Lucky you
Your dream’s come true

Icy cold
Each lovely face
Ripped to ribbons
Tarnished lace
We forgot the punished ones names
While his lives on
His sin found fame

He waits…
Calm…
Silent…
Shiftless.

The filth of years corrodes your tears
The needs drown out all your fears
Look where the life you lead has led
The devil sleeping in your bed

Icy cold
Each lovely face
Ripped to ribbons
Tarnished lace
We forgot the punished ones names
While his lives on
His sin found fame

She traded in her lace for ribbons
He laid in wait for his next victim...
Track Name: Killbabykill
I forgot how it feels to have much and still need more
I would trade anything just to get back to before
All the world fell to chaos around us in a blink
And it didn't leave much time to plan or think

So we stocked up on everything we'd need to get by
And so many of us left, we know will die
Now my love is true – but if they turn you, I won't hesitate to shoot

Now we have no choice
We were born to suffer
And this life we live is just a bitter pill
If we could, of course, we would never soil our soles, but...
When the hit's on you
You kill, baby, kill

Now our numbers are fewer, but we will always fight
Off the wicked, deranged, the tormented and dead-eyed
And it wouldn't be normal to never question why we're here at all
Why bother to try when we know we will all die

But we have no choice
We were born to suffer
And this life we live is just a bitter pill
If we could, of course, we would never sin or harm, but...
When they feast on you
You kill, baby, kill

And you can't look back or think about the life that you once had
‘Cause it's gone
When the stench of death and rotting flesh pollute the air
Be strong... you must be strong
And carry on...
Track Name: I See Red
Like a ghost
I go unnoticed by most
And though some feel me near
They can’t make out what I need
And then I cannot appear

And fall I sometimes do
I fell right into you
You didn’t brush me off
You called me luck

And I’ll fly away, I always do
But not before I bring good luck to you
Hard shell wings beat and say

I see red
And I don’t feel mad at all
And I don’t feel sad at all
Could it be I feel free because
You really can see me?

And although you can recall
All of the bitter things I’ve said
It’s not always a negative to me
When I see red

I suppose it may seem strange to some
But we fall on everyone
At one time or another
But not everybody cares

Of all the crawly things you knew
This ladybug is true
So I’ll crawl longer
If you want me to

Then I’ll fly away, I always do
But not before I bring good luck to you
Hard shell wings beat and say

I see red
And I don’t feel mad at all
And I don’t feel sad at all
Could it be I feel free because
You really can see me?

And although you can recall
All of the bitter things I’ve said
It’s not always a negative to me
When I see red.
