Track Name: Rag Doll
He froze on the walk home
Decided it didn't mean a thing
No godless, headless knight
Is gonna bring him down with it
The plumber & the cable guy
Stay late for a dialogue
Only to pause when discovered me alone
Face down, eyes wide open
That fear before time becomes pocket change
And what am I but a link in the chain?

Rag Doll opens his mouth
And all he says his fluff
Keeps his lover in the cupboard
Just collecting dust
He let her out once
And all those words he used to love her for
Felt like acupuncture needles to the heart
And he was floored
The truth is funny 'cos it sets you free
But never lets you off the hook
And I know you've tried your alibi
But you just come off as a crook
Don't say that love is blindness
'Cos you know neither of the two
Bliss is ignorance's bitch
And darling, so are you
Track Name: The Plot Laid (& the deed done)
All our trash gets passed around
Thrown around from street to street
Tonight we're all hoping that
Maybe it's not too late for our minds to meet

All our shit get thrown around
Passed around from hand to hand
Today I was hoping that
Maybe it would feel alright to take my head out of the sand

Honey, mend my loneliness
Maybe then I could let somebody in
I'm just so tired of walking around, homeless
I'll let you finish if you let me begin

All our time gets tossed aside
Such a heavy toll for such a short ride
Now that you can see me for what I am
I can't think of anything to help you understand

Honey, mend my loneliness
Maybe then I could let somebody in
I'm just so tired of walking around, homeless
I'll let you finish if you let me begin

The plot laid & the deed done
Now you and I can have some fun
Track Name: Only I...
I left you as I saw you
And think of getting shot
As the columns crumble down
And the sanctum's left to rot
I begged him out of the corner of my mouth
I ate with him & drank with him
And then I threw him out

Though I tell you I love you
I feel I don't know you at all
Though I say that I miss you
I don't care where you are

Only I...

Will obligatory gestures becomes as natural as tears?
Will you confidence in you become as common as my fears?
Don't mind me when I curse you from the corner of my mouth

Oh, though I tell you I love you
I feel I don't know you at all
Though I say that I miss you
I don't care where you are

Only I..
Track Name: Getting Satisfied
Underlined, her eyes
The wig blocked her sight
No cure in the mirror; tears it down
Street lights blinking off over her
And in come the markets & take Faith
Trench Coats & Plain Clothes rely
On you to remain as calm as humanly possible
Wonder if they cross their fingers long enough
Maybe they'll stop soul-crushing waves
If it's war they want, it's war they'll get
Come on
It's the only thing to incite the change

Cough up, man
Get in on the plan
Collect your shoelaces
And make your way out

Ha, ha, ha, ha
I know that you remember
Street lights blinking off over you
In they come
Trench Coats & Plain Clothes retire

Cough up, now!
Ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha, ha ,ha
Track Name: Valis
I'll hold your hand
In the black iron prison
Never have I seen
A smile so chilling
Lock arms, block clinics
This is where the rapture starts
Hailing for impending doom

I'll hold you coat
In the dead of winter
The dead of winter
Never have I had
A thought so soothing
Track Name: That Call
Hey!
