Track Name: Today, I Mean It
Even if I told you,
you'd never believe
Say I gave you nothing,
nothing more than I can give
Even if I showed you,
what you want to see
The room is empty,
the story's incomplete.

I'll just do what I do best and hide in plain sight
I told you to forget the rest and focus on whats right.

Even if I promise
that I will never leave
My word is haunted
by ghosts that you don't see

But today I Mean it and I can give all myself to you
I've lost the feeling, there's no answers to pursue

I can give everything to you
Only just one piece at a time
Just tell me what you want me to do
One foot either side of the line.
Track Name: Casanova
Let me know the weight,
I haven't slept in days,
Although I'll know your taste
It's not the thing I crave

Oooh Casanova

I can't help but wonder what it says,
As I walk the boards inside your head
My friends they'll never understand
I don't need someone to hold my hand

Still they say oooooh Casanova

They Don't know the nature of my crime
I'm not a thief I am a scientist
and I'm still learning

All you know and are,
projected on your bedroom walls
You open up and let me in
To share in that most sacred sin

Maybe they're all right there's something wrong with me
This need for constant affirmation
there is a darker implication
But I don't feel these insecurities
that you insist I must I am just looking for some intimacy
just like you

Oooh Cassssanova

They Don't know the nature of my crime
I'm not a thief I am a scientist
and I'm still learning
Track Name: Lay Down in the Fire
Broken bottles and a burnt out smoke
Bitten nails and a brittle hope
Counting tiles on the bathroom floor
Flinching as she hears the creaking door

Fire, lay down in the fire

Cuts burn bright on a face so pale
Tells a twisted little fairytale
Hides the damage just as best she can
And she'll forgive her ever loving man

Fire, lay down in the fire

Her own mother barely even blinks
Look at everything this bastard brings
Four solid walls and a leak-less roof
My girl the bottom line's the only truth

Fire, lay down in the fire

Desire, to lay down in the fire

Out looking in, it's a pretty picture
In, looking out, just a worthless bitch and
He's just a man, does what he can he's not a monster

Fire, lay down in the fire

She falls asleep in a burning room
These four walls will become her tomb
From the grave let the blossom bloom
She falls asleep in a burning room

Fire, lay down in the fire
Desire,

Leaned from her mother so she
Lay down in the fire
He broke her spirit so she
Lay down in the fire
She lit a cigarette and
Lay down in the fire
She always hoped for something better
