Track Name: Great Works
I saw you sitting on the city center steps
With your criminal crew
And I reflected on the sections of reason I had left
And started searching for something new

Spurn, turn, spinster
All good things and so on and on
The silent shattering of the dawn
And the violent cackling of the faun
And the nymphs who drunkenly dance and laugh and yawn
Upon your lawn which swallows whole all that was
That swallows whole all that was

Like the deep, dark love of the deepest ocean
Like the cold, distant light of brightest Orion
Like the deep, dark love of the darkest ocean
Like the cold, Christian light of brightest Orion
Like the stark, barren hate of this harshest Hell
Like the stark, barren hate of this harshest Hell
Which you were so sure was well worth your time

All your great works were snowmen in the sun
I caught snowflakes on my tongue
Insubstantial, fleeting, and then it’s gone
I dream of fast expansion
Track Name: A Fire, a Light
A fire, a light
You can try all you'd like
But you'll never put it out
No matter how much evil you pour down
It'll always shine proud

You monster, you beast
You'll have to get through me
And you will never pass
I'll always stop you dead in your tracks
You will never have the last laugh
I promise you that

You'll never put it out
No matter how much evil you pour down
It'll always shine proud

No, you will never win
You might as well just give in
And slink back to your pit
Track Name: Damn Mimes
Tell me all your secrets
I might even tell you some of mine
Well, for one, I spent seven lousy months as a mime
I was drunk all the time

Tell me all your secrets
I might even tell you some of mine
Well, for one, I spent seven lousy months as a mime
Could never remember my lines

People’d get sick of me
They’d stamp, stand stout and shout, “Get out!”
I’d take a bow, do a little curtsy, spin around
And pass out on the couch

But I, I pretend I’m doing fine
I buried eight ghosts, but eight rose up in the night
Oh I, my heart’s getting broken all the time
I buried nine true loves, but they rise up when I turn out the light

Oh, kick me in the shins, oh, cap me in the knees
I’ll just come back crawling, calling, “Baby, baby, please come back!”
I’m begging, I’m begging you, please
These knees have needs

Oh, any hole I can find, sure, I’ll stick my head in
I’ll stay there for, I don’t know, five years
Should be enough time to figure something out

But I, I will make the same mistakes
Over and over and over again
It’s what you get with a heart of tin

Oh I, I left it all behind
But it follows everywhere I go
Find me pissing love notes in the snow
Track Name: Fine China
And when we’re dead, then we’ll be dead
And I guess that’s enough for me
Another enemy defeated
Another nemesis destroyed

And this was a love song before it was perverted
And it was dumb and it was pure, but now it’s wiry and introverted
But always strange and always frail and on the verge of shattering
Like your elders’ fine china crashing sharply on the floor

And if we meet there, then we’ll meet there
We can touch our lips and pretend that it
Will still spark the spark of our tired hearts
Scrape the pits of this sordid abyss

And it had such a subject
But everybody is pretty now
And all strangers are the same in their strangeness
And all strangers are the same in their sameness

You were right, and I was told
When we were born we were too old
This pornographic picture’s the last piece of us
That I haven’t sold
Track Name: So You Can't Find You
Somewhere deep inside of yourself
You know you can't hide from yourself
But you'll still try, so go hide
Close your eyes so you can't find you
Track Name: We Know We Know
Their words, my words, your words, just words
Their words, your words, my words, just words
We all know we know
For our gods told us so

They thought, I thought, you thought, just thought
They thought, you thought, I thought, just thought
We think we're so smart
Let the fighting start

They're lost, I'm lost, you're lost, just lost
They're lost, you're lost, I'm lost, just lost
We've lost our way
So out of place
Track Name: Fever Seer Glory
You gave me what I needed, nothing more, nothing less
You gave me what I needed, nothing more, nothing less
And you were calm when you left
We were calm when we left

And I’m staying in a steeple where ghosts won’t haunt
I’m staying in a steeple where ghosts won’t haunt
And you can come when you want
You can come when you want

But don’t keep me, keep me, keep me, don’t keep me from the…
From the glow in your heart

And I want the madness, your fever seer glory
Yes, it was madness! Your fever seer glory
We’ll be here in the morning
We’ll be hearing no mourning
Track Name: It's Coming, It's Going, It's Gone, Oh Well
You don't notice when it's coming
Pay no attention when it's near
Then tragically just when it is leaving, you'll notice that it's leaving
And it'll be gone, my dear
It'll be gone my dear
Track Name: Language They Can't Read
When it’s cold, I’m whiter than snow
I’ve tested it, so I ought to know
I never go outside, because there’s nothing there to see
None of those watching eyes would ever look to notice me

And I’m standing right outside their windows
I’m screaming in the middle of the street
But I’m silent, so they would never even know
I’m writing in a language they can’t read

There’s an asshole in my heart
And he screams, and he stamps his feet
’Til he tears it all apart

A million little heart attacks
Going one by one by one by one all day
Every time my love comes my way
She has so many different faces; she’s the kind that always changes
The kind that has so many different names
The kind that I could never hope to keep

And I’m standing right outside her window
I’m screaming in the middle of her street
But I’m silent, so she would never even know
I’m writing in a language she can’t read
Track Name: He Nods
Tonight we'll all put on a show
And on and on and on and on
Tonight we'll all put on a show
And on and on and on and on

The days they'll go, the nights they'll go and on and on
They'll go right by, so

Tonight let's go put on a show
For God that he might nod (he nods)
That life might go and oh, you know
It goes and on and on and on

Our lives, they'll go before we even know, you know
So let's just dance now
Track Name: Two More Years
She was slighted by slight of hand
And I can attest to that
She was taken for a ride; I know, I know
Because I’ve been on that ride too

Putting on her high-heeled shoes
She was stuck in public school blues
She was running away, running away, running away
Running from the heartache and those fools

What a funny joke, you monsters
How could you not see her?
She’s hiding her face, betrayed and ashamed, crying alone
Crying in the corner of the room

Now she’s running away
Only two more years of this shit
Track Name: Rose in Teeth
I know what it’s like to hurt
I know how it feels to feel like dirt
Yeah, I know, yes, I’ve been there too
I want you to know I’ll never do that to you

So don’t you worry about a thing
I’ll be there waiting, rose in teeth
I’ll dance like a puppet tied up in your strings
I’ll wear your ring; I’ll lay your wreath

And if you ever feel pain
Just stay where you are and call my name
Because I will hear you, and I’ll come running
You can always count on me coming

So don’t you worry about a thing
I’ll be there soon with rose in teeth
I’ll run like a madman to your feet
I’ll pick you up; I’ll keep you breathing

So don’t you worry about a thing
I’ll be there waiting, rose in teeth
I’ll dance like a puppet tied up in your strings
I’ll wear your ring; I’ll lay your wreath
