Track Name: Siren Song
Breathe you in... Like cigarettes, you'll be my gust of moribund air but when we're glued you do no wrong. Won't you be my friend? I think I know how this will end but I cannot help myself.

Siren song - It's been a year since I've been free. It seems so long but you still have a hold on me and I cannot escape your memory. Wish I could help myself.

Should have plugged my ears; no one was there to tie me down. I disappeared when you lured me in with your song. Naught but flesh and bone left to rot with all the rest but I couldn't help myself.

Vexing virgin of the Earth, I will cut your wings and hold your head under the blue so you can breathe it in and when your face matches the sea, I'll be the first to leave you.

I just couldn't help myself, couldn't help myself. Pulled by every cell in my body's well. Couldn't find myself falling where you fell. Couldn't help myself.
Track Name: Holding On
All of my smiles are lost in photographs
When did I become an imitation of myself?

Holding on 'til I see the light
Holding on 'til I fall asleep tonight

All of my friends have gone and left me here
All alone I fall into the flood of hearts, drowning

Holding on 'til I see the light
Holding on 'til I fall asleep tonight

All of my best lines are locked in my dreams
All of my favourite songs don't exist
All of my pain multiplied by every word you never said
And all I ask is one more chance to throw it all away

Holding on 'til I see the light
Holding on 'til I fall asleep tonight
Track Name: Doctor, Please
Doctor, please, I really need your help
I fear I'm falling and don't trust myself
I'm on my knees begging you for the answers
Paralyzed by anxieties

And I've tried burying tragedy
But it's clawing away at me

If I write it in a song
Will you take it
And break it
And right all the wrong?

If I hide it in a song
Will you find it
Unwind it
So I can move on?

I cannot sleep... My brain will not allow it
Overcome by the urgency
So, doctor, please, cauterize all the cancers
Instrumental lobotomy

And I've tried burying tragedy
But it's digging away at me

If I write it in a song
Will you take it
And break it
And right all the wrong?

If I hide it in a song
Will you find it
Unwind it
So I can move on?
