Track Name: this is all there is
woke up this morning, found my friends
though i thought i'd lost them
they were all there with me
everyone as far as i could see

all those people talked about
was their worry and their doubt
though i tried to comfort them
no one heard a single thing

is anybody here scared to death?
this is all there is and we're missing it
is anybody here sick of this?
if this is all there is
then we're missing it
being scared to death
this is all there is
and we're missing it
Track Name: you know you
if ever you need
someone to bleed
on the altar
as you mutter prayers
you can get ahold of me

if ever you see
sacrificing me
will save you
yeah, you know you
can get ahold of me

if ever you need
blood to appease
those who command you
can get ahold of me
Track Name: standing here
said "i can't hang on for long
if there ain't nothing in my arms"
as i see what you got there
i wonder why we are

standing here
pretending we're alright
standing here
pretending we're doing fine

there is nothing there
there's nothing

so you look to me and say
"can we just go home?"
i step back from you and say
"why not go on?"

standing here
pretending we're doing fine
standing here
pretending we're alright
Track Name: you ain't no more
in the ashtray i see
there's nothing i need
i ain't already had
no, things ain't that bad

as i lie on the floor
i see you ain't there no more
where you were before
you ain't no more

looking up from the floor
i see there's no more
for me i ain't already had
yeah, things ain't that bad
Track Name: beyond the door
was a nice place i left

but i heard voices at the door calling me home
couldn't remain anymore beyond the door
where i could never know what lie beyond

then two hands lifted me into the light
and then they lowered me into two loving arms
where no one did me harm till they set me free

but i ain't anymore free here then i was there
just free to stay or go or do nothing at all
but sit here on the earth upon this piece of dirt
saying why didn't i stay?

in the nice place
i left
Track Name: upon my knees
you were bending over me
naked in the moonlight
with one hand upon my knees
while with the other you
tried so hard to get me
ready for you

but i wasn't ready for you

cuz i'd been drinking
on the xanax that I'd taken
earlier to get me ready for you
and now there you were
bending over moaning
"I want you so bad"
Track Name: it ain't ok
and i'm speaking with my father on the phone
and i feel something echo in my bones
as he says "it'll be ok in the end
and please remember til then, don't get excited"

now as i look down into your eyes
i smile to myself as i realize
it ain't ok but it ain't the end
and i know we'll be alright til then
I don't get excited
Track Name: when it leaves
when you see something you want
whatta you do
do you let it haunt
you

and when it looks your way
how do you act
whatta you say
do you play it cool

and when it leaves
how does it feel
do you feel empty
while you're trying to feel
whole
do you wanna be whole
Track Name: b4 u get bored
where you been so long
lost in the place you're trying to escape
where you been so long

where will you be
when you make your escape
where will you be

how long will it take
before you get bored trying to escape...
Track Name: about what i'm missing
my eye is ticking
as i speak with myself
about what i'm missing
ain't nobody else
can tell me
what i am missing

i'm reminiscing
about those days
you were with me
in a daze
i remember
how hard i tried
to hide

now though i forget
what i just said
i don't regret
any of it
cuz now i know
there ain't nothing i hold i can own
