Track Name: Doobius
We always had your back when somebody cried...
Bullshit on all your fantastic designs
But it gets harder with each time…
To cover your tracks, blur the lines
The stories too good to be true
We want so much to believe you

And never would I say
That you should fade away
If you could just be real we might be
Tight still

You can try, but you can never hide your dubious side
Got ‘em all convinced that you're a prince
You’re living a lie

You can try, but you can never hide your dubious side
Got ‘em all convinced that you're a prince
You’re living a lie… a lie

Remember back when you cried- I let you down…
To anyone and everyone around
But never once did you tell me
Shut me out passive aggressively
How’m I supposed to make things right
When you refuse to even fight

And never would I say
That you should fade away
If you could just be real we might be
Tight still

You can try, but you can never hide your dubious side
Got ‘em all convinced that you're a prince
You’re living a lie

You can try, but you can never hide your dubious side
Got ‘em all convinced that you're a prince
You’re living a lie…

How’m I supposed to make things right
When you refuse to even fight
And never would I say that you should fade away

If you could just be real we might be tight still
Track Name: My Time
Nothing’s quite as dark as a bright, sunny day
Warm is everywhere but the cold spot I lay

Take my breath away...
Take my breath away...
Take my breath away…

I lay back with my eyes wide open
Staring at the sky, bluer than your eyes
I lay back with my eyes wide open
Staring at the sky, bluer than your eyes

Try to soak the light up before it all fades
Flashes of the past fuse and form your face
(You) take my breath away

Take my breath away...
Take my breath away…

I lay back with my eyes wide open
Staring at the sky, bluer than your eyes
I lay back with my eyes wide open
Staring at the sky, bluer than your eyes
And the dragonflies say it’s my time

My time...
Track Name: Flight
Set fire to the heavens above
No command of a God of love

So many mouths to feed
That’s cause enough for me to bleed
Trade Heaven eternal for a fiery inferno
Punish the wicked
Consequence is meaningless
The price of my actions: more babies in caskets

Say what you want
Nothing can keep
Can keep me from
All that is mine

Set fire to the heavens above
No command of a God of love

So many mouths to feed
That’s cause enough for me to bleed
Trade Heaven eternal for a fiery inferno
Punish the wicked
Consequence is meaningless
The price of my actions: more babies in caskets

Say what you want
Nothing can keep
Can keep me from
All that is mine

Say what you want, nothing can keep me from taking flight
Keeping your feet on the ground is fine for those afraid to even try

High above in holy light
Nothing for me in this life

Set fire to the heavens above
No command of a God of love
Track Name: Heirlooms
These four walls stood
Stood for something you can never leave behind
Behind the eyes of sadness

We poured over
A lifetime of sentiments and collectables
Dividing up these precious treasures

And I never dreamed these things would mean anything to me
You can’t take them with, so you leave behind what you love

It’s understood, what might seem like knick knacks to me
Encapsulated your dreams
So I’ll try to find the beauty of your smile
In each trinket I keep

And I never dreamed these things would mean anything to me
You can’t take them with, so you leave behind what you love
And I never dreamed…

I may not have much, but these amulets make me feel strong
Take what you want, just remember me when I’m gone
I may not have much, but these amulets make me feel strong
Take what you want, just remember me

Isn’t it nice, like sugar and spice
Everything that a girl could need
Long pearls, short hair for girls
Fringe down to my knees
Lovely ladies lined in pink and gold we called a cameo
Tiny pictures in black and white we called a tin-type

I may not have much, but these amulets make me feel strong
Take what you want, just remember me when I’m gone
I may not have much, but these amulets make me feel strong
Take what you want, just remember me

Remember me
Remember me
Track Name: Solitary
Well, it’s such an old cliche but I guess it’s true
They say that you never know what you have ‘til it’s gone

It gets hard to hold on
When the only way is to let you walk away
And I know you’re worth the fight
But, sometimes I wonder if I might be better off alone

And yes, I know I can be cold
And colder still the more the distance grows

Is it all just in my head?
Self-made misery and dread
Tell myself to keep the faith, but sometimes I still wonder…

Now I know - no, it’s not the same
You never could let go
Say you’ve gone nowhere, that you still care
But when I reach for you, you’re just not there
And I can’t wait around for you to see I’m right here

So what does it mean to love?
To accept the things that you can never change
And be glad you have enough
Of the pieces that do seem to fit in place

But that’s easier said than done
When my stories start to run
Tell myself to keep the faith, but sometimes I still wonder…

Now I know - no, it’s not the same
You never could let go
Say you’ve gone nowhere, that you still care
But when I reach for you-
You’re just not there
And I can’t wait… I can’t wait

No, don’t go! Now I take it back, you can’t just walk away
Say you’ve gone nowhere, that you still care
And when I reach for you- just be there
Hear through my frightened words and know that I’m right here
Track Name: Ghosts of Hollywood
We set out to find the places tourists dare not stand in line
Off the beaten path, a putrescence palm trees cannot hide
All the glamour, all the murder
All the glitz and all the shame
Feels electric like a pulse that’s pounding in her dirty veins

As I raise the peat to my lips, an unseen voice says, “take a sip”

It’s gonna be a long, long night
The party’s on the other side
And if you catch a glimpse, don’t look into their eyes
The ghosts of Hollywood will never die

Shelly knew them all by name
An index of forgotten fame
A toothless smile to hide the pain
The would-be starlet's silent shame
Muddled like a lime within the gin
Power House - the altar for confessing sins

Down I go again, as you implore
To the spirits - follow the floor

And it’s gonna be a long, long night
The party’s on the other side
And if you catch a glimpse, don’t look into their eyes
The ghosts of Hollywood will never die

All the glamour, all the murder
All the glitz and all the shame
Feels electric like a pulse that’s pounding in her dirty veins

As I raise the peat to my lips, an unseen voice says, “take a sip”

It’s gonna be a long, long night
The party’s on the other side
And if you catch a glimpse, don’t look into their eyes
The ghosts of Hollywood will never die
The ghosts of Hollywood are on your side tonight
The ghosts of Hollywood are on your side

They’re on your side / It’s gonna be a long, long night
Track Name: The Want
I feel like I’m walking on a cloud
Ever since you’ve been around
A smile or a word could change my day
It’s been years since I’ve felt this way

You could’ve stepped right out of my dreams
Opened doors & everything
A part of me I thought must’ve died
Ooh, baby, you brought back to life

But what are these?
The words I’m saying don’t sound like me
Awake from the dream
Lined eyes reading reality

Oh, forget it
Never mind
Thought I’d try, but forget it
Ever after is not my style
It’s pathetic
Who am I kidding, I’ll never get it
What I want is the want

And now it’s been longer than you’d think
Make rules hard for me to keep
I guess I should count myself lucky
You find broken things interesting

It’s funny, you’d think I would be fine
Silently by your side
With all of the many times I’ve lied
A shadow hiding in the light

But will I forever be kissing a mystery?
The hero always must mask his true identity

Oh, forget it
Never mind
Thought I’d try, but forget it
Ever after is not my style
It’s pathetic
Who am I kidding, I’ll never get it
What I want is the want
Track Name: Daywalker
The fairest of them all, you have so many fooled
Red hot flames give way to bitter, freezing cold
Pretty on the outside when you’re feeling good
The monster that’s within revealed in party mode

So step into the light, my dear
Your shadows can’t protect you here

No glitter skin romanticising evil souls
No liquid mass displaced could ever fill your holes
Burn up in the light, sometimes I wish you would
Skin so soft and fair, I know it probably could

So step into the light, my dear
Your shadows can’t protect you here

Mirror, who is the fairest to me?
Well, go find her and split the truth from the fallacy
Mirror, who is the fairest to me?
Well, go find her and rip the beast from the girl I know you’ll never be

The candy house you built to lure naive ones in
Resulting tooth decay from all your saccharine sin
I’ll leave behind the stories for the real world
The feeble fable never was a real girl

So step into the light, my dear
Your shadows can’t protect you here
You say that you’re afraid, of what - I’ve never understood.
It feels like just more trailer glamour

You are not real, you are fairy tale

Mirror, who is the fairest to me?
Well, go find her and split the truth from the fallacy
Mirror, who is the fairest to me?
Well, go find her and rip the beast from the girl I know you’ll never be
The girl I know you’ll never be
The girl I know you’ll never be
