Track Name: Be Careful With That
Be careful with that ...key
It unlocks a door you don't
really want to open

Why must you test the fates
and why must you unlock gates
when we are safe inside our lives?

It's not your way to play it safe
hold on for one more day

Be careful with that key
because you do not need to know just what
the future's going to bring

It's not your way to play it safe
hold on for one more day...
Track Name: 'Shoot Through It' (Circle of Titles II)
Look at that bird; it's flying so high
it's so far away / why must it die?

-and how would i do it - it's done nothing wrong
why should i bring it down in the bird song?

I'm not that hungry; I don't feel sad
Nobody wants to do anything bad
-or stupid, or crazy -
yet, I've got a gun,
I'm here in the forest with nowhere to run

Just narrow your eyes and steady your hand
look straight down the sight and just do it
I make a red line through the heart of what' s mine
I narrow my eyes
and shoot through it...

I've got two legs
I've got these hands
I can't do anything... so grand
Understand all the time
spent searching for all the space you promised
and more...
I'm here frozen
... waiting for you

Waiting to say things I think I can't say
They say that you can but - no really, no way
You can jump twice as high, but you'd better not cry
Yeah I think sure, just do it - go look down the sight

Just narrow your eyes
And learn to shoot straight
Crush your fist 'round your wish and shoot through it...

Narrow your eyes and steady your hand
Look straight down the sight and just do it
I make a red line through the heart of what's mine
I narrow my eyes and shoot through it.......
Track Name: Mr. Nakazawa's Book of Surprises - 'Experiments in Living'
I am an object
My future is suspect
They tell me to push the button
They tell me how I'm supposed to

act, think, react
There's no world beyond
the war they have brought on;
the war I'm here to wage

Experiments in Living,
Experiments in Dying
(existence is a question with no answers to why)

Morphine drips in my veins
conscience constantly rearranged
dreams of firefights
I'm a step away from

madness, rage, despair
but I cannot accept my fate
They want me to be their hero
but all I wanna do is die

Experiments in Living,
Experiments in Dying
(existence is a question with no answers to why)

Choices are laid out for me
Syringes and conditioning
The story of my life is a lie -
a test tube mentality

Experiments in Living,
Experiments in Dying
(existence is a question with no answers to why)
Track Name: Starting A Witchhunt
there was no need
for you to go looking
you had what you wanted
the whole time along

at the first sign of trouble
the brave soul remembers
the place where his heart
most truly belongs.

doesn't take spells to lure in
for the first taste
shrill, harsh demands usually
push them away

and nobody needs
to go enchant any apples,
or even go running
after fools on a chase

-But I guess that we
will be looking around
for blame must be piled
on our pyres
and starting a witchhunt
it seems like the way
to bind down any
wayward desires

the clocks strikes thirteen past
for you and for me
so he'll burn in your bed
and I'll burn on my tree

so drink to your sickness
and drink to your health
and then go ahead and shame me
cause Lord knows
you can't shame yourselves

and I guess that we
will be looking around
because blame must be
piled on a pyre
and starting a witchhunt
it seems like the way to
bind down our wayward
...desires
Track Name: 'the last afternoon of a woman he only thought he knew'
The windowpane shows you
the same thing the girl who knows you's
been staring at has to say
of prophecy ...
and shiny things

but what a noble thing
not to let her know,
so you leave no waste behind,
don't let it show
you save face, and that's okay…

CH
cuz it's the last afternoon
she's gonna do this
and you know it's her birthday
so for one more day,
pretend that you know her enough
to suit up
and say "love"
… say, love…

she hears a lot but you're not talking
it's typical for this type of day
and wedding rings are interesting…things

she watches signs but mostly sees you walking
she's keeping track of your little ways
but nothing pays
and nothing stays...

CH/BR
she'll close around her self like she opened
ah, but you'd notice that…if it was important

Track Name: 'Right Here At The Edge'
Right here at the edge
[there ...at the edge]
I don't have the time to expect
I don't have the time to digress
[mirror?]
must go forward - not back like the rest

you superceeded my dreams,
[right there at the edge ...]
either wide awake or while sleeping...
[i don't have the time to digress...]
so I stand here right at the top,
and look down.
[right there at the edge ...]
sometimes I forget to start screaming

when I jump and fall, imagine my surprise!
[in-vision (my) surprise ...]
when I hit the ground like a stone -
spread so quick and messy
so alone

watched in shock by the crowd
falling slowly
so loud - without making a sound!

i watch, see it all ...
outside of myself
falling, counting the lies
written by me and read by my own sight
[there you are ...]

that's what you get - when you
rip the wool off. of. your. eyes!
[there ... ai....]

that's what you get right
[right there at the edge]
right here at the edge


when you let your parts reduce down to a sum
that you're volume's been reduced down from
a shout of
your loud happy place ...
so you swallow disgrace
and live right at your edges;
with a fake, tight smile
stapled 'cross your face

...out the window of the human race
out the window of the human race
Track Name: 'Who Said I'm Dead'
Hello you
You're not my enemy
You never knew me
like you thought you did
But you got me pegged
with my Autobiography
just like you said,
"baby off with her head"

I write in my song
so you s'pose you know
while my heart is breaking
just how it goes
'Cuz you rule the school
with your fingers and pies and your cruelty
you'd know just how those heads would roll

And you didn't keep a diary that night
You think you'll move on
-bet you think I died
just to be resurrected
and come back to bed ..
and you left it so cold
it looks just like our life...
Yes, the one you thought I'd left behind
So, raise your glass up my friend
'cuz who said I'm dead?

Yeah, I just said goodbye
I swore to the sky
-it won't happen again
I'd be my own end and beginning
Well, hell yeah I bet, if you knew the rest
you'd laugh through your hands at how I failed the test

And you didn't keep a diary that night
You think you'll move on
-bet you think I died
just to be resurrected
and come back to a bed ..
that you left so cold
it looks just like our life...
Yes, the one you thought I left behind
So, raise up your glass my friend ...
the ghosts don't die

BR
Yeah but I knew all along
I'd take a risk
if there was a risk there to take
read my lips. read my mind
ain't about you this time
when I leave something behind
…it's not
just replaced / with the next
thing I find

Men look to queens
like a bitch looks to lies
and they'll hear only songs
as she spreads out her thighs
But I believe in the life I have led
and the choices that save me from slander and dread
All you cowards that cant see the forest for gold and for bread
Well…
who said I'm dead?
who said I'm dead?
… who said..?
Track Name: Our Plans Are On Hold
'Let's talk about death,'
the little girl said at the cocktail party.

Then she told the man
she was running away,
but nobody cared.

Hey hey, don't you know
we should as we're told -
We know it's so cold in the winter.

so I will be braver and I'll never cry.
I'll dam all of the rivers

CH
and I won't forget that our plans are on hold
- by then I'll be dead in your soul

Pretend you can fly
or that you could shoot fire
just where would you go?
just what would you do

It's funny how nothing escapes you
when someone is following you

CH/BR
Let's talk about what hasn't happened yet
let's make stupid bets about what might be next
...shoot for the sky
...eat all the pie
with no regrets

Hey, you're gonna die
and they'll ask you why
you did the same old thing

They'll show you that photo
you wish you could change,
but it just can't be summertime everyday

CH
Track Name: 'When Did You Know'
when did you know
i wasn't from this place?

did you know it when you kissed me;
when the moon was shining with the starlight
in the window...
when i took off my clothes?
(-see that I was different?)
when I lay down / on the bed
when you looked down at my face
was it shaped funny?
did you still want to touch me...
and love me

when did you know
i'd come from far away?
when did you guess?
did you put me through some kind of test?

some scientific nonsense
that i don't understand
'cuz you don't really speak any Xondorian
and your human language of strange love
and the heartbreak
I just don't understand
just doesn't fit into your master plan

when did you know?
when did you know?
when did you know?

my contradictions / weak transitions
the rules I break…they gave me away
and i don't understand your ways
the rhymes of your reasons
the purpose of your days
…and it shows

I was an impostor.
when did you know
that I was actually the monster?
when did you know
… it was over?
Track Name: 'If I Had One'
I try to be a sensible woman. I wouldn't sit around;
I wouldn't hang my last desire up on a wire
holding every lacy pair of your next trick's
naughty little things..

..you'd ever seen or that you've contrived
to bring home in the night to a bed you said was mine -
in a cheap hotel Satan sold us from hell
after demons' dinnertime.

…and I try to be your angel
but you lie like a devil
through our paradise
..all the time

CH
And I'd take the getaway flight if they had one
I'd take the money and boy, I'd run.
I'd do everything there was to do to you
under the shameful sun.
I'd make the choice to run away
and I'd cry - but it'd be the price I'd pay.
After I'd given you the time of day
I'd make a choice tonight
if I had one…
… to make

That's right..
I'd walk away -
no glance back .. i'd do the walk of shame
Not a lot of regret; but unlike the unlucky wife -
my dish would be salt-free,
and served cold.

'Cuz I believe the gloves have come off..
my door's swung easily open
and you came and took everything you could see

And if I could wipe my mind free then I would
And maybe I could if baby, if I had a different key

CH
And I would slam the door if I could
I'd bolt it tight down if it only would
let itself be locked … I'd be impervious

-to your whispered words. I'd make the choice
to run away
And I'd cry but it'd be the price I'd have to pay
After i'd given you the time of day
I'd make the choice tonight
if I had one to make..
if I had one to make...
