Track Name: The Saddest Day
This is the simplest song I could sing for you
To let you know I've seen this happen before
When the sun broke my door
Announced I couldn't own
the feelings I thought I'd known

This is the saddest word I could breathe into
To let you go…because I've seen this happen before
When the wind swept by my door
Announced I couldn't go
Where your shadows
weeped and moaned

This is the saddest day I have known
This is the most pain I have ever owned
This is the saddest day I have known
This is the most pain I have ever owned

This is the last time I will ever try to bring you home
because I've seen it happen before.
Track Name: Wanna Die #3
Why don't I just pull the plug
Drop down onto the rug
Blood splatters beneath my bed
Don't matter cause I've lost my head

Why don't I drive off the cliff
Hit the pedal and make a wish
Sip some scotch as I fly
When I'm gone I'll be burning bright

Wanna die but I can't do it…
Wanna try but I can't feel it…

Why don't I donate my blood
So much I start to faint
Mix it up like tomato soup
and drink it down until you're through

I think I'll tie my head out on a pole
let the kids knock it around
I played when I'm alive
now I'll play when I'm away

Wanna die but I can't do it…
Wanna try but I can't feel it…
Track Name: No Matter How Much
No matter how much I hold
No matter how much I know
Will I be, any less,
Will I be, any less,
Alone?

No matter how much I try
No matter how much I cry
Will I be, any less,
Will I be, any less,
Alone?

Hold my body down
Drag my soul around
Rip my skin clean
Take away my needs

No matter how much I love
No matter how I wish
Will I be, any less,
Will I be, any less,
Alone?

Hold my body down
Drag my soul around
Rip my skin clean
Take away my needs

No matter how much I hold
No matter how much I know
Will I be, any less,
Will I be, any less,
Alone?
Track Name: I Raise Voices
Is there a tree, Is there a sea
that I can own when I feel weak?
Is there a land, Is there a place
that I can leave, when I'm in need?

Do I have an arm, Do I have a voice
that I can raise when I got no choice?
Do I have an arm, Do I have a voice
that I can raise when I got no choice?

Is there a man, is there a girl
that I can hold when I'm alone?
Is there a time, is there a place
when I will care where you go?

Do I have an arm, Do I have a voice
that I can raise when I got no choice?
Do I have an arm, Do I have a voice
that I can raise when I got no choice?

Is there a sky, Is there a thought
that will ever bring you home?
Track Name: Snowbird #2
Desire don't bend, don't bend me down
Past the point where I can make a sound

I don't need
To hold you down

My lies don't end, end in my mouth
I'm out beyond where I can turn around

I don't need
To hold you down

This time don't end out, don't let me out
Down from all sides it'll come around

I don't need
To hold you down
