Cordelia 05:13
Gods have smiled upon you And all you do is laugh Take a photograph and Send it to yourself The only one who'd care for The only one to like Kid yourself for another while Til you get some Rid yourself of your sickle smile With the jetsam Cordelia You are not your money You're not anyone Or anyone who's anything more to me Than what I would give for you Just to open up your mind Give yourself just one more shot from the get-go Rid yourself of the shit you’ve got Cause she said so Cordelia You and I We’re the sickest kind But we’re not the type to criticize Delicate and elegant and white I am ready for you Just to cast the past aside See yourself through another’s eyes Til you know it Free yourself from the world of lies Don’t you blow it Cordelia

Abilene 03:19
Abilene, you're a friend of mine Since I wrote your name in a book that I've had For the longest time Off and on You're a mystery You're a truckstop queen on a jukebox screen Something else to see You and I, we can touch the sky Never coming down again All it took was a simple lie You know I never wanna remember But I'll never forget you So alone In your history Just a trumped up line from a twisted time S-stuck in repeat Oh, I know Oh there's a place for me Cut the demons out Take the trail on out Live in ecstasy You and I we can kiss the sky Never come down again Oh but I'm such a restless guy Only gonna move it along now But I'll never forget you Ooh you're a certain kind of defeat Ooh now you're ready to die for me You and I we can touch the sky Never come down again All it took was a simple lie Only gonna move it along now I'll never forget you

Exit Plan 03:58
Here I stand, alone in a Neverland. One and one makes only two; the lies you tell catch up with you. Where we'll land, where no-one would ever go The dream that lies in front of you Is rotten to the deepest roots. The earth can hardly keep with your demands. No-one here can know the exit plan. With all the need we hold within our hands Only you can know the exit plan You know that you can never be More than just a cameo And only for the broken hearted The dream of light is soon departed now And when close your eyes you can only see See you and me in the spotlight bringing, the lies and ties that bind I'm singing yeah, more than just an antidote Only for the broken-hearted who’ll never know Yeah more than you could ever know On and on and on and on it ever goes Yeah more than you could ever know Only for the broken hearted Who dream of life that's soon departed Yeah more than just an anecdote On and on and on and on it never goes

Nobody Home 03:43
I’m leaving when nobody’s watching I’m walking away on my own No feelings to spare ‘Cause there’s no-one to care I’m leaving with nobody home No-one to ponder my departure No sad lament for my going Not a sinner to pray Or say “please darling stay” I’m leaving with nobody home If I hadn’t’ve been quite so tiresome If I had’ve tried all along Then maybe I’d have a dear sweetheart To miss me, or notice I’ve gone I’ve packed all my things up in boxes I’ll write a brief note by the phone Saying how it’s just me And I’m gone, fancy-free I’m leaving with nobody home
5.
When you’re coming up here won’t you keep it on the other side? When it’s only you and me won’t you never ever let it die I know, I know Life’s slow as it goes Just a little upset gotta see if from the other side Walk a minute in his shoes Don’t you never ever question why Love grows as it goes When you’ve got a load bearing down on you And dream you seek could only be for More than you could ever lose All your broken hearted dreams And all the hope inside Seems to bleed you dry Til you’re free from it

Seraphine 04:17
Once upon a canvas blank, in the quiet dark of night Seraphine paints pictures of her paradise A blaze of color and an ever-praising eye Seraphine sang a hymn She sings for all the world to hear, but all the world’s asleep With tired hands and broken skin She paints her soul to keep, evermore Casting visions out of pure necessity Seraphine sang to me I hear her clear around world Across the century Once the war is over I'll return to you And given time and healing, minds of stone will crumble too Just to see All the world through eyes of your naivety Just for me, Seraphine Once when I was just a boy I found a toy to play A question not for answering; A joyful noise to make; to create All at once I made a promise to myself Just to be, like Seraphine You breathe just to let it out Open your eyes and let the sunshine out You bleed, light is all around All the love you have here on solid ground On solid ground Once upon a canvas blank Ten thousand miles away A steady hand puts pen to plan A voice begins to say: “Fill the world with all the colors that you see” Just for me, for Seraphine
