Track Name: The Last Catastrophe
Welcome to the end
The last catastrophe
The blackened sea is dead, reflecting nothing

Welcome to the end
The last catastrophe
Just like Dorian, you lost it in the end
And you can't go back now
You can't, you've gone too far
No, you can't go back now
You've gone too far

Welcome to the end
The last catastrophe
You and I are dead, reflecting nothing
You can't go back now
You can't, you've gone too far
You can't go back now
You've gone too far
Track Name: Wake Up!
Always thought I'd kill myself in the woods
In the wild I'd die on my own terms
Always thought I'd feed a hundred birds
So I'm so afraid of parting from this Earth

There's no church in the wild
There's no God in the wild
There's no saving me from me
There's no saving me from you

Always needed someone to believe in
And they left and left me cold, hard and breathing
Find a man who likes to show you affection
Wake up, wake up! You're drunk and you're dreaming

There's no church in the wild
There's no God in the wild
There's no saving you from me
There's no saving you from you

Whistle blows through the night
Shotgun shells hold on tight
Wind is pulling at your hair
Come to me I'm right here

There's no church in the wild
There's no God in the wild
And we're all going wild
There's no saving you baby

There's no church in the wild
There's no God in the wild
And we're all going wild
I'll be your God in the wild

Always thought I'd kill myself in the wood
In the wild I'd die on my own terms
Here I am to show you affection
Wake up! Wake up!
Track Name: A Dying Christ
I'm just a new Christ sent here to walk on water
I need to change inside but it's lost in my desire
I'm just a dying Christ, my blood is now your fodder
Swallow it down and let me struggle with the wire
I'm fading away into Earth, into history
I'm taking my time not to rush, but it's not enough
We're fading away into Earth, into history
We're going to die unknown, just a piece of Earth

There used to be a crowd who'd wax philosophic
They suddenly drown and left the world to fall apart
And in the event they died upon the rocky edge of the sea
I guess it's worth the wait to see them
Fading away into Earth, into history
Taking the time not to rush, but it's not enough
Fading away into Earth, into history
We're all going to die unknown, just a piece of Earth
Track Name: Rest Your Head, Johnny Pontchartrain
Found a little boy
Down by the ocean in the sand
His eyes were wide and open
Teddy bear clutched in his hand
Found a baby boy
His ma and papa missed him so
And who had killed this boy
Would never walk on down death row

Oh, Johnny!
Oh, Johnny!
Oh, Johnny, rest your head

Little Johnny Pontchartrain
Was barely worth his weight in gold
Born just a little late
And crystal-eyed did wait for the day to come
When all his dream undreamed came true
And now it's over
Now the chance is gone for Little Boo

Oh, Johnny!
Oh, Johnny!
Oh, Johnny, rest your head
Oh, Johnny!
Oh, Johnny!
Oh, Johnny, rest your head

Oh, my love
Goodnight my love
Oh, my love
Goodnight
Oh, my love
Goodnight, goodnight
Oh, my love
Goodnight, goodnight, goodnight
My love, my love, my love

Oh, Johnny!
Oh, Johnny!
Oh, Johnny, rest your head
Oh, Johnny!
Oh, Johnny!
Oh, Johnny, rest your head
Track Name: Once More With Feeling
I'm getting tired of always being the problem
And I'm really tired of all the lies I keep solving
It's getting old being shoved to the back
Being pushed off the rails
Being run off the track
I'm sick and tired of you not wanting to solve this

Maybe you're thinking that I'm coming to get you
In your dreams
You make it so hard to stand you
All of these lies knocking me from my feet
Tearing me down, forced to accept my defeat
Maybe you're thinking we're all out to get you?

Can you try and act like you have some feeling
For the those of us around you since we first started breathing
It's not just her is a part of your life
Even if that's what you want
When did you leave from our lives
Can you pretend one more time with feeling?

I think we deserve one more time with feeling
I think we deserve one more time with feeling
Track Name: Hercvles
Hercvles was just a boy
With the strength of planet force
Held in his name
Hercvles was just a boy
Though he couldn't help destroy
Living with the other boys
Track Name: Cowboys & Indians
Cigarettes in the bed
Rabbit ears, shaggy hair
Baby crawling in my head
Remember me
Remember when
Used to play our crazy games
Cowboys, Indians and Braves
Used to say that I was tops
But time goes by and flesh it rots

Yellow air surrounds the trees
Sun goes down between my knees
Bushes fade to dark between
The light of day
The dark of me
Cigarettes around my bed
Surrounded is my wounded head
Crawling to the light to see
What all these years have done with me

Yellows grey to me
Cowboys stop wanting to play
Leave me naked in my bed
Cigarettes and wounds of red
Smoke will clear the sky in time
Remember me and what was mine
Wrapped in mummy-fashioned threads
We'll start our living once we're dead
Track Name: The Point
You
You're a dick
Everybody wants to be a dick
Everybody wants to ride on it
And that's the point, isn't it?

Me
I'm a skeeze
Everybody wants me on my knees
Everybody wants to be pleased
And that's the point, don't you see?

You and me will always be fucked
You and me will always be wrong
You and me will never be the song people sing
What the fuck?

Me
I'm a trick
Everybody wants a piece of dick
Everybody wants a little bit
And that's the point, isn't it?

You
You're a pig
Everybody wants to get it in
Everybody wants a little bit
And that's the point, isn't it?

You and me will always be fucked
You and me will always be wrong
You and me will never be the song people sing
But what the fuck?
You and me will always be wrong
You and me will always be fucked
You and me will never be the song people sing
Track Name: Vampire Song, No. 2
I may walk in the shadows
To keep my skin from turning the whiter shade of pale
I'm capable of turning
I don't see how that warrants what you're saying
About the bone inside and the concept of me praying

I don't know your God
But I'm sure he knows me
If he's all you say he's supposed to be

You walk in the sunlight
To hide yourself from showing all the darkness you hold
You try to keep from showing
You walk in the sunlight to keep your skin all glowing
As a farce it's so faux
This game you play of knowing

I don't know your God
But I'm sure he knows me
If he's all you say he's supposed to be

You don't know your God
Any better than me
For all you could know he could easily be me
Track Name: The Queen Is Dead
He knocked her down to the ground
To the ground he knocked her down
She took the blame, she took his name
Took his name and did the same
She knocked him down to the ground
To the ground she knocked him down

Then when he died she hardly cried
She hardly cried the day he died
She held it in, she let it grow
She let it grow and grow and grow and grow
And then her love, he died
And how she cried
Oh, how she cried the day he died

Things still aren't the same
She's been replaced
Been replaced and kept her face
They all know her name
It's still the same
It's all the same, but somehow changed
And then she died and they all cried
Cos she'd never let them by her side
And then she died and they all cried
They all cried and cried and cried and cried

He knocked her down to the ground
To the ground, to the ground
She's underground
Track Name: Cut Me With Yr Love
Get me off this rocket
Send me back to Earth
Shoot in me your rocket
Ready for the third
Cut me with your love
Scratch me with your head
And give to me your love

Take me where you're going in a box with you
Stop playing coy now
I think it's time we stick it out for real
Cut me with your love
Scratch me with your nails
And give to me your love
And give to me your love

Put me on your rocket
Spinning 'round again
Head first we're shooting right back down to Earth again
Fill me with your love
I'll fill you with my love
Cut me with your love
I'll cut you with my love
Give to me your love
Give me to your love
I'll give you to my love
Track Name: The Girl Who Was Numb 'XII
I'm just a girl with my head where it shouldn't be
Trying to find some feeling
Something to see
And I'm just alone, not cos I want to be
But it's how the world turns
It's how the world ends

I wasn't sure if you were good for me
Or if was me who wasn't good as a we
So I step off the rail where I shouldn't be
It's how the world works
It's how the world ends

So hit me
Help me to see I have some feeling inside
One time
To see if what I've lost in your fist I can find
I'll be right here by your side
So hit me so I'll feel inside
Hit me so I'll feel inside
Hit me so I'll feel inside
Track Name: Still a Kid / And Narcissus Stared...
One more shot to kill the death inside of me
One more loss to add to the pile I am building
One more night I'm lonely in love
One more shot to take care of
I don't know what to do to make me happy for you
Can't let you go
Can't stick around
Sometimes I wish you'd stick me six feet underground
Sometimes I wish you'd kill me
So I wouldn't have to live another without you
Usually I wish I weren't such a bitch
At 25 I'm still a kid at the end of the bar
Haven't been anywhere
Wanted you to take me everywhere with you

One more shot to kill the death inside of me
One more loss to add to the pile I am building
One more night I'm lonely in love
One more shot to take care of
I can't be happy for you
Track Name: This Foreign Town [Bonus Track]
Spinning around
Walking on clouds
Sinking in air
Sinking in sounds
I don't quite know when I'll be back again
Spinning 'round this foreign town
Walking on air
Drifting through sound
Drowning this town
I don't quite known when I'll be back again
Spinning 'round this foreign town
