Lona's Cabin 06:14
They took us through the woods To where the cabin once stood So far outside of the camp The wood so black looked damp Now, Lona died in the fire Trapped alone in her pyre No one out to deny her of sleep Down at Lona's cabin on the week No floorboards to make that creak No floorboards to bring you down or down The grounds are haunted by her ghost They're collapsed and charred through most Where no one is around Flickering reflection on the lake Embers fall gently on my face Haunted by that ghost when I slept So sure I would wake there yet Lona died in that fire Trapped alone in her pyre No one out to deny her of sleep Down at Lona's cabin on the week No floorboards to make that creak No floorboards to bring you down or down The grounds are haunted by her ghost They're collapsed and charred through most Where no one is around, don't make a sound Lona had it easy: she burned up in the flames If I had the choice to die again, I'd choose to be with that dame My mind is always dripping, wet with soggy thoughts I close my eyes and wake up where the wooden cabin rots It's gone for good The camp as empty as the woods I wish I could remember how to feel scared But it's hard to tell if she was ever there If Lona died in that fire Trapped alone in her pyre No one was out to deny her of sleep For years and years it lies Empty, dormant inside Finally I can close my eyes and sleep Down at Lona's cabin on the week No floorboards to make that creak No floorboards to bring you down or down The grounds are haunted by her ghost They're collapsed and charred through most But at least she didn't drown like me

The cat doesn't know any better But his hair is too stupid to stick up He's got all the potions that can turn people into dinosaurs! (Dinosaurs) Dinosaurs

Satan's Summer home in the Adirondacks Leaving behind my motor home Winter and a pit o bodies and dark nights and gentle days with you Satan! So it's the last that we will remember in a pit o bodies It's true that you were touched by something that will grow and bloom in you The urge to drink blood ...AH! Drink blood! Drink blood...

Let me drive you down the street The sun is shining on your feet What a nice day for a ride In the back seat where you lie Watch the countryside pass by No clouds are floating in the sky I hum hum hum this song Why aren't you humming along? Just a few minutes away I love the way you smell, I could smell you all day Your eyes are gently closed As we drive to shallow grave road We'll park next to these trees right here I'll stuff you in this trash bag dear Let me help you out of the car And I can carry you under the stars Here's a spot the dirt's loose and I dig a hole and throw you in Then shovel, pat, pat the ground So you will never be found On shallow grave road

Another Way 04:36
She said you don't even have to go Transitions are fast, acclimation is slow There's only one thing I want to say But I'm slowly finding another way Further and further away it seems Just as awake as I am in my dreams Memories are like stars If they're there, chances are they're already gone But I'm finding another way There's so many times when I wish some things To be here or there and see what that brings But then I'll wake up in places High on the peaks of the mountain tops and I think 'How did I get here and where will I go?' But I'm finding another way

Running through the power lines On a clear and sunny day Up the rocks, it's a matter of time We burn but it's okay Happiness Ignore the rest We explore For less or more Cause that's what we're looking for Jump off the dock into the lake Swim back to the shore Race to the swing, the legend was fake Won't have nightmares no more Let's bike to the quarries In the shade of the trees Hike the hill and through the woods Dilute your enemies Back to the sun and breeze

Bleeding Out 05:10
My heart is bleeding, bleeding black Apart too soon, I want you back Mistakes I've made keep us apart Thoughts of you race my heart I wish I could go back in time but I can't Everyone says this is good for us But they don't understand All I want is to be by your side Instead I'm next to nothing till I die I can't let go but nothing else can be done Can't help but think that I'm... And there's someone who's lying on the ground And there's someone whose heart's bleeding out And there's a man who's laughing out loud What we had is still there Just have to take it back Feeling everything because you're gone It may not be left but I know it's wrong I'm messed up and I need help Nightmares haunt me of our bad times I treated you wrong, I blurred the lines All I hear is split apart All I want is to stop my heart From spilling and drying up on the floor Up in the East is where... And there's someone who's lying on the ground And there's someone whose heart's bleeding out And there's a man who's laughing out loud And there's someone who's lying on the ground And that's the one whose heart's bleeding out But who's the man who's laughing out loud? And there's someone who's lying on the ground And there's someone whose heart's bleeding out And there's someone who's laughing out loud
