They won't ever find out just where I hid them
One-hundred stones that sparkle in darkness
They caught me downtown changing the bus lines
An easy target midday no disguise

Sergeant politeness
Searching for weak points
Caress my ego
Trick me so softly

I only took them to find my way out
The self-infixed freeze that comes from boredom
You see I let them, I let them find me
One-hundred stones that mean nothing to me

I'm so innocent sir that I can't reveal a thing
I'm blind and happy sir to be tortured in this way

Sergeant politeness
I'm so enlightened
Go on molest me
I won't confess now

Woke in my warm bed
Just in time for all the brilliant red lights
They were streaming through my half shuttered windows
Christmas lights in time with my stuttered brain waves

The door knob was glowing
All my photographs were rippled and melting
Through the walls I could hear panicked voices
They seemed to say, go back to bed there's no choices
And nowhere not burned out

The fireman calls out
We've got another
Smoking umbrella left
In the hallway and

I gave no answer
To all their shouted questions, just lay back choking
Didn't want to stay but my bed was on fire
Instead of screaming I fell back into dreamland
Blinking and sighing

I sprained my will
Lying in bed.
Counting the pores across my skin.
I'm so ashamed
To love no one
My ego's bent and my pride's undone.

I'll spend the night
With my pillowhead girl
We never fight or say a word.
I'll spend my life
With my pillowhead girl
She is the lovely faceless queen.

I gave up hope
In finding you.
I've got a friend I've grown used to
I'm so ashamed
To love no one
My ego's bent and my pride's undone.

I'll spend the night
With my pillowhead girl
We never fight or say a word.
I'll spend my life
With my pillowhead girl
She is the lovely faceless queen.

I'll spend the night, wasting away

Blank

writer: Ken Andrews, Greg Edwards
No conviction in your numb mind
A hidden cell of chemicals
Keep your soul on my projection
Never turn on the camera
Because
I kinda like the blank way
I fill up my life
I don't care for nothing
That gets me too high
I want some dampened spirits
And black and bitter spoons
I'm not looking for affection
I'm living on the moon

No conviction in your voice box
It's buried low beneath the guilt
It all seems real as you whisper
She lies warm and the smell is you
But she knows
I kinda like the blank way
You fill up my mind
I don't care for nothing
That gets me too high
I want some dampened spirits
And black and bitter spoons
I'm not looking for reflection
I'm living on the moon
Here I am
Right at home
In my crater
Here I am
Feeling old
Here I am
Wishing for
A miracle
I need you to know
That I like the blank way
I fill up the sky
And I care for nothing
You put in my mind
I like the blank way
You fill up my mind
I like the blank way
You fill up my mind
I like the blank way
You fill up my mind

I got high on scrapings from my nails
Now I'm back down my eyes are growing dark
My burnt spoon has dried beneath the bed
And I'm dreaming of dirty blue balloons

I've waited so long without you
I've waited too long for you

He came in, he didn't speak my language
I paid him with everything I had
And promised next time he opened up his mouth
And then they floated out dirty blue balloons

Nothing helps and no one else
Can make it feel okay float me through the day
Nothing helps and no one else
Can make it feel alright float me through the night
I can not let 'em go
Dirty blue balloons

I've been freezing my time
I've been slowing my breath
I've been saving my soul
I want you to freeze to
Are you haunting me again?
Are you thawing out my head?
I want you to get out...

I'm on an ocean that has a brain and makes us dream
I'm on a mission to wipe imagination clean
You grow inside me dying time and time again
I'm on a mission to escape from what my life has been
Without you

I've been hiding in snow
I've been treading on ghosts
Are you haunting me again?
Are you burning up my head?
I will never solve algebra of need
Any thought just might turn to flesh and drag me back to life

Down by the railroad tracks I will enjoy you
Can't feel a single thing that won't fade away
We'll laugh like we always do when we hear the whistle
So high and satisfied, let's sleep for a spell

Pitiful laughable, once again silent
You're pitiful laughable, once again silent

Down at the carpet shop you want to cut me
The patterns are laughing out, I know it's not fair
Go ahead roll me up in your detachment
I'm here to decorate your fear for awhile

You want to hold on to me, I want to hold out on you
That's what you'll tell yourself as I fade away
Into your isolation

bass guitar: Greg Edwards and Ken Andrews
writer: Ken Andrews, Greg Edwards
Leo woke up in his bed again
Startled by all his familiar friends
Burnt out stubs confectionery wrappers bottles spent and empty
Leo felt a terror in the world
He sighs it's not so bad
And goes about his day as if nothings changed
He finds it so hard to explain the way he can't communicate
The feeling's there but he can't say why it's so hard to relate to you or anyone
Leo quickened his step toward his car
He broke into a sprint at twenty yards
As he guessed the dogs had come ripping into his arm for fun
Leo got away in his blue car

Say hello
To the rugs topography
It holds quite a lot of interest with your face down on it

Say hello
To the shrinking in your head
You can see it but you know it's there
So don't neglect it

I'm taking her home with me
All dressed in white
She's got everything I need
Pharmacy keys
She's falling hard for me
I can see it in her eyes
She acts just like a nurse
With all the other guys

Say hello
To all the apples on the ground
They were once in your eyes but you sneezed them out while sleeping

Say hello
To everything you've left behind
It's even more a part of your life now that you can't touch it

I'm taking her home with me
All dressed in white
She's got everything I need
Some pills in a little cup
She's falling hard for me
I can see it in her eyes
She acts just like a nurse
With all the other guys

She's got everything I need
Pharmacy keys
She acts just like a nurse
With all the other guys

Say hello
To the rugs topography...

The solar panel's shining face
Is smiling back on me
Twisting off into the sun
It's okay to be lonely

All my missions float away
I never trained too hard
I'm so caught up in the tree of stars
Falling in my backyard

She'll always be what I can't find
She'll always be where I break down
She'll always hide behind a star
I'll always dream she can't be far

I've got no Houston to whine down to
I've got no protocol
Gravity's so far away
Wrapped on that shrinking ball

I eclipsed my memories
Sleeping inside this pod
Patient time will carry me
On her back without a sigh

And I won't let her down
Her soul is celestial-bound
And if I'm never found
She'll always be

writer: Ken Andrews, Greg Edwards
I heard you driving in my car
Then in a frozen bar
I claimed I didn't care for you.
But your verse got trapped inside my head
Over and over again
You played yourself to death in me.

I thought I'd drop you easily
But that was not to be
You burrowed like a summer tick.
So you invade my sleep
And confuse my dreams
Turn my nights to sleepless itch.

[Chorus]
Stuck on you, til' the end of time
I'm too tired to fight your rhyme
Stuck on you, til' the end of time
You've got me paralyzed.

Holding on the telephone
I hear your midrange moan
You're everywhere inside my room.
Even when I'm all alone
I hear your mellow drone
You're everwhere inside of me.

[Chorus]

You've got me trapped
I can't escape
Your incessant whine
When you beam it out
All across the sky
No I can't escape
Your insipid rhyme
When you shoot it deep
Straight into my mind.

Right now, we're sick of everything
Tonight, we'll bind up our brains again
With eyes pinned, I'll fly around on your bed
We'll grow close, while our hearts disconnect.

Morning, is limping into the room
Pleading, that we blind ourselves again
Rip out, that heliotropic rose
Back off, please let the lost get lost

I know my faith has meaning
But I've forgotten why
It's so important to me
I can't remember why

Living a phantasm of the nerves
Girlfriend's chemicals in your head
Good days eventually oxidize
Put them with thoughts that escape your mind's eye

I know my faith has meaning
But I've forgotten why
It's so important to me
I can't remember why
Seems like I'm ****ed forever
Seems like at least right now
I forgot why, I need to fill this space.

I've got a catacomb with fur covered styrofoam
So come over now and sleep
Time isn't here again wasted thoughts that could've been
Now we can devise our plan

Daylight
Daylight
Daylight won't find us here

I've catacomb with flags that flew fifty years ago
Let sleep overcome your mind
God isn't safe again molests trees and chops down men
So we must revise our plan
