Track Name: HIGHWAY
Tear up the night with lady luck
Make like a tree and leave that slut
Bite into the apple and you will see
There are funny old plans for you and me
You can roll with the punches, put up a fight
Stick it to the man or be a slave to the hype
We're all in this together so whatever you do
Make it count forever cause 'till we're through...

We're taking the highway
Making our own way
Through hatred and love
We're beautiful creatures
With hell right beneath us
And heaven above
If you want the secret
You'd better believe that
It's gonna be tough

Drunk as a lord with a Cheshire grin
Blind to the world and the state we're in
Everyone from Hitler to the Ku Klux Klan's
Had an alibi for their ignorance
If the truth doesn't cut you, you'll never bleed
If the proof paints a picture, that's all you'll need
When everyone is playing for a place in the stars
Take some time remembering that we are...

Taking the highway
Making our own way
Through hatred and love
We're beautiful creatures
With hell right beneath us
And heaven above
If you want the secret
You'd better believe that
It's gonna be tough

And every road you take
Leads right back to you
And every big mistake
Lends another clue
And all the friends you find
Are never going far
And all that's on your mind
You are

We're taking the highway
Making our own way
Through hatred and love
We're beautiful creatures
With hell right beneath us
And heaven above
If you want the secret
You'd better believe that
It's gonna be tough
Track Name: JESUS WEPT
So, you think you’re Jesus Christ
You think you’re gonna save my life
But I don’t know
If I’m a believer
Your eyes are like two dying stars
Your attitude is so bourgeoisie
That I don’t think
You’re much of a seer

When you swept me off my feet
I blacked out and I cried for a week
It’s harder to be cynical
When heaven’s so near

Don’t hate, don’t take my heart for granted
Our fate is what you make it
I’ll put my trust in all you promise
As long as you don’t break it

When you start to break it down
That’s when I finally come around
To comprehend
The scope of your vision
Tomorrow gives me butterflies
A proposition that defies all common sense
And my intuition

Now everything’s up in the air
And I’m bound by the cross that I bear
I’m reaching for the clouds
But I am stuck right where I stand

Don’t hate, don’t take my heart for granted
Our fate is what you make it
I’ll put my trust in all you promise
As long as you don’t break it

You make me dumb as a first time French kisser
You make me silly as a schoolboy in the rain
And I know that when you’re gone
I’m gonna miss ya
Even though we’re not the same
So, you think you’re Jesus Christ
You think you’re gonna save my life...

Don’t hate, don’t take my heart for granted
Our fate is what you make it
I’ll put my trust in all you promise
As long as you don’t break it
Track Name: WEEKENDER
Let’s head into the city
Somewhere off the radar
Let’s keep it confidential
And find us something pretty
No one throws a party
Like the Devil’s agent
Yeah, you need to quote scripture
To get an invitation

And when the circus rolls into town
Our illicit dreams sparkle all around
We’re just white collar lovers whose decadence Is the last line of defence

Wrap me up and take me home I must be a frightful mess
I don’t want to be alone
At this hour
This weekender is overblown
And I really must confess
That I don’t want to be alone
This weekender is overblown
Weekender...

Punching through the morning
Fists all cut to pieces
Yeah, we’re throwing up nothing
And scratching at the stitches
Bleeding on the pavement
Hailing down a taxi
Yeah, we’re trying to chase something
That doesn’t feel so empty

And when the circus rolls out of town
Our illicit dreams shatter to the ground
We’re just white collar lovers whose decadence Is the last line of defence

Wrap me up and take me home I must be a frightful mess
I don’t want to be alone
At this hour
This weekender is overblown
And I really must confess
That I don’t want to be alone
This weekender is overblown
Weekender...
Track Name: IT
You can taste it
You can splash it across the floor
You can infiltrate it
Penetrate it to the core
You don’t want to waste it
It’s like nothing you have felt before
If they confiscate it
Hit the streets to find some more

Cuddled up in slime
It’s burrowed in your mind
It’s feeding on your will
Your hunger is its fill
It’s breeding in its hive
It’s eating you alive
Its tentacles are spread
And you’re wishing you were dead

You can crush it
Keep it deprived of air
Nip and tuck it
Lock it underneath the stairs
You can humiliate it
‘Till it’s got no sense of pride
You can desecrate it
‘Till there’s nothing left to hide

Cuddled up in slime
It’s burrowed in your mind
It’s feeding on your will
Your hunger is its fill
It’s breeding in its hive
It’s eating you alive
Its tentacles are spread
And you’re wishing you were dead

Take my heart, take my spine, take my tongue, take my line, take my blood
(It is what you make it)
Take my sight, take my mind, take my youth, take my time, take my love
(It is what you make it)

Cuddled up in slime
It’s burrowed in your mind
It’s feeding on your will
Your hunger is its fill
It’s breeding in its hive
It’s eating you alive
Its tentacles are spread
And you’re wishing you were dead
Track Name: YIN & YANG
Valentine,
I have nothing but some
Cheap pornography and these sordid visions
Won’t you please be mine
You alone can ease my
Cruel dependence on this
Sick derision, baby
We can find a way
To harness all my deviance and put it on display

Cause when my hands are idle I am
Satan’s private boy
But in conversation I am
Mother’s pride and joy
On that fateful night of my
Conception by the moon
Swimming for the amniotic safety of the womb
They said I was doomed

Heretic,
I am heterogeneous
One part Antichrist and
One part baby Jesus
I need you
And your charm to guide me
Then together we will
Rise to lead the army
Still I rue the day
I offered up my innocence and gave my soul away

Cause when my hands are idle I am
Satan’s private boy
But in conversation I am
Mother’s pride and joy
On that fateful night of my
Conception by the moon
Swimming for the amniotic safety of the womb
They said I was doomed

Somewhere between darkness and divine I’m pure and I’m obscene
The Yin & Yang in every man
Genderless and always undefined
I’m filthy and pristine
A wolf who dresses like a lamb
Sometimes I’m an angel
And sometimes I’m the Devil himself

Cause when my hands are idle I am
Satan’s private boy
But in conversation I am
Mother’s pride and joy
On that fateful night of my
Conception by the moon
Swimming for the amniotic safety of the womb
They said I was doomed
Track Name: BROKEN TWILIGHT
I picked a rose for you today
And then I gave it to a perfect stranger on my way
Cause you're not worthy of a gift
That makes somebody smile
When you can only cut your wrists in...

The broken twilight of your psyche
I'm hoping you might soon forgive me
You're hiding behind a mask of pity
I wanna see your face again

The dust has gathered in your room
Some nights I step outside to hear you howling at the moon
But all your misery's in vain
No matter what you do
You'll only have yourself to blame in...

The broken twilight of your psyche
I'm hoping you might soon forgive me
You're hiding behind a mask of pity
I wanna see your face again

Even though you still pretend
You will always be the pretty girl I knew
This wretched look just isn't you
So learn to stitch up all your hate
Cause without love you can't escape from...

The broken twilight of your psyche
I'm hoping you might soon forgive me
You're hiding behind a mask of pity
I wanna see your face again
Track Name: PRETTY WHEN YOU'RE SICK
Am I even there
Do you even care
When I talk to you
Can you hold my stare
Is this all that's left
Is this just a test
I can't take much more
Of this emptiness

I lost you at some point along the line

But you and me
It used to be so different
I loved you so much I'd throw a fit
If I hurt you it was just an accident
Baby, you're so pretty when you're sick

Now you don't complain
You forgot my name
And your soul is worn
But you smile the same
If you only knew
If you'd let me through
You would understand
How I'm missing you

Maybe we won't make it through this time

But you and me
It used to be so different
I loved you so much I'd throw a fit
If I hurt you it was just an accident
Baby, you're so pretty when you're sick

And though your apathy is cruel
To me you're always beautiful
Until the day you die
I'll watch you fading right before my eyes

Know that you forever will be mine

Cause you and me
It used to be so different
I loved you so much I'd throw a fit
If I hurt you it was just an accident
Baby, you're so pretty when you're sick
Track Name: A FILTHY CRIME (OF THE HEART)
You said that you walked out
For the better
But somehow the hurt held
Us together
And I need you now
It's true somehow
You say when I cry
I'm only weaker
You couldn't have cut me
Any deeper
Now I bleed to feel
As if I'm real

Help me cause I need ya
Not because of what's at stake
I will never leave ya
Cause only you appreciate
That love is but a filthy crime
Of the heart

I let you seduce me
So completely
Then watch you destroy me
So discretely
I spoil you sick and I take your shit
Just to make you stick around
Cause I need you here
To disappear

Help me cause I need ya
Not because of what's at stake
I will never leave ya
Cause only you appreciate
That love is but a filthy crime
Of the heart

Help me cause I need ya
Not because of what's at stake
I will never leave ya
Cause only you appreciate
That love is but a filthy crime
Of the heart

Love is but a filthy crime
Love is but a filthy crime
Love is but a crime
Of the heart
