Track Name: Nine Of Knives
we've lost control with all our friends
we'll meet the line until it bends
and drag it down to where it ends
"so c'mon, so c'mon, so c'mon"

on and on...

we've lost control with all our friends
we'll meet the line until it bends
and drag it down "so what? it ends?"
so c'mon, so c'mon, so c'mon

on and on...

"oh no! they're at it again!"
when you watch some blue-blood habit extend
"oh no!" they warned of an end
still it crept on you and it took off your head, it said

we've lost control
we've lost control
we've lost control
we've lost control
we've lost control
so c'mon, so c'mon, so c'mon
Track Name: Abstrakt
some say that you give it away, I had none while you have plenty
extend from the palm of your hands, for now
you scream that you wanted some more
I'm far gone, so much like many
I wait but you had me above the doubt

signs fade like you won it again, I was locked in your good graces but,
I sit at the top of the hilt, you played shy and self-effacing
turned away instead of facing it

are we just the sum of our parts?
distorted views, contorted faces
moon wax as the candle is burning out
complain that you started a craze
speaking slow in half-turned phrases
commit to repeating yourself again and again and again and again...

signs fade like you won it again, I was locked in your good graces but,
I sit at the top of the hilt, you played shy and self-effacing
turned away instead of facing it
Track Name: China White
where do you come from?
where will you go?
I was caught in a crossfire
column to row
pity or envy
I hide between
faces of many sight left unseen

biting a bullet, seep into broken ground
tracks in the middle, never pin me down
color me bitter, stripes wouldn't fuck around
I was indifferent to what you could have found...up for me
chase one big dream

so chase it fast to take it slow
the needle isn't used to sew
its in the blood run through your veins
a single plunge to pull the reins
Track Name: Dwell
they come in black and white
they come in black and white
I learned another way you have to scratch and bite

I'm getting drunk on you
mutate and threaded through
confounded or confused
pin-pricked by points of view

dictate where I should be
erase all dignity
you take it out of me
you take it out on me
they come in black and white
they come in black and white
they come in black and white

ba ba ba ba ba banananah

thank god and kiss goodnight
sincere and yet not quite
believe in second chances
force it to fit in tight
they want another deal
we tack it on the field
lay down on any spread
then turn it on it's head

what will they do to you?
what will they do to you?
what will they do to you
if I bleed red and you breathe blue?

it could keep you up all night...
Track Name: Vicious
We're running wild
into New York style
we're running wild and vicious
its all the rage
in a nuclear age
but you disengage, so vicious

out of the races and onto the track
I'm in good graces but not coming back

we're running wild
into New York style
we’re running wild and vicious
its all the rage
in a nuclear age
you disengage so vicious

out of the races and onto the track
I'm in good graces and not coming back

We’re running wild and vicious...
