Track Name: Ghoulfriend
You just want to be somebody’s ghoulfriend
He digs you and you dig graves

How can you talk to the dead?
How can you drag me out of your head?

You’re smiling hard at the body count
Dreams of cold kisses on your head

How can you talk to the dead?
How can you drag me out of your head?

You just want to be somebody’s ghoulfriend
You’re just trying to fool the dead

How can you talk to the dead?
How can you drag me out of your head?

Somebody’s ghoulfriend
Track Name: No Always, No Never
Looking at the big, bad forever
There ain’t no always
There ain’t no never

That’s right
You win at this
You win it all

Take the stars
Take the hornets
Take the haunted house
Now you’re washing blood forever

That’s right
You win at this
You win it all

Now you’re washing blood forever

That’s right
You win at this
You win it all
Track Name: Galaxy
I was alone
I was alone in the galaxy
I couldn’t find
I couldn’t find my way
I had been lost
Black suns and thoughts
Dull ice in my heart
I had been lost
Black suns and thoughts
Floating in space

I guess I still have the galaxy

I had escaped
I had escaped your gravity
That pushed the ice
That pushed the ice through my heart
I lost your transmission
Eons ago
Listening for you
While stars whispered and died

I guess I still have the galaxy

Maybe the sun
Will explode when it’s done
Burning away
Maybe I’ll land
Maybe I’ll land in a frozen sea
Wherever I am
Wherever I am, stop looking for me
Track Name: One Hundred Years
“The girl you loved is dead,” (she said)
“So why are you still here?”
“You know, I shouldn’t have stayed so long,
For the last one hundred years.”

“You know you love me like a child.
I can do anything to you.”
“Now, I see myself alone
For the next one hundred years.”

“And now I see myself alone
For the next one hundred years.”
Track Name: Scary
Baby, I’ve got complications
And I do more wrong than right

Can you tell me what you want?
Do you even know?
Can you tell me what you want?

Baby, I’ve got complications
And I do more wrong than right

What you’re trying to say
Is you still want something perfect
You still believe in perfection
Don't we all want something perfect?
Track Name: As Close to Love
This is as close to love
This is as close to love
This is as close to love
As I’m going to get

I’m in her and selfish
I’m on her and nowhere
And she knows it
And she knows it

I’m still lying
I feel nothing
And now that she’s finished
I’ll set it on fire

This is as close to love
This is as close to love
This is as close to love
As I’m going to get
Track Name: Anxiety
There should be a heart here
Instead there’s fear of...
There should be a mind here
Instead there’s fear of...
There should be a soul here
Instead there’s fear of...
There should be a heart here
Instead there’s fear of...

...what you don’t know
What, you don’t know?
What you don’t know can kill you

If it’s snow outside
Let’s run and hide from...
If it’s rain outside
Let’s run and hide from...
If it’s dark outside
Let’s run and hide from...
If it’s sunshine
Let’s run and hide from...

...what you don’t know
What, you don’t know?
What you don’t know can kill you

If I love you
All I’ll get is...
If I leave you
All I’ll have is...
If I fuck you
All I’ll get is...
If I leave you
All I’ll have is...

...what you don’t know
What, you don’t know?
What you don’t know can kill you
Track Name: May the Devil Take You
You’re listing crimes
You’re holding mine
And your reasons
Are so unkind
You bite and maim but
You don’t feel the pain
You’re bleeding shame but
Tell yourself you’re sane

I don’t love you
I don’t hate you
Tell you the truth
May the devil take you
He’s first in the line
He’s dressed to the nines
And he loves you
Yes he does

Nightshade in your garden
Rats inside your walls
Bodies in your cellar
Ghosts banging in the hall
Witchcraft in your honey
Death rattle in your soul
Reasons for my damnation
You can list them all

I don’t love you
I don’t hate you
Tell you the truth
May the devil take you
He’s first in the line
He’s dressed to the nines
And he loves you
Yes he does
Track Name: Crimes
Eight years between this and never
I know the firefly will die
You caught my eye
And believed everything so easily

You helped me with my crimes

I spend the daylight counting victims
But I know the one to die is me
You set me free
And cried while I grew empty

You helped me with my crimes

You are the victim
And I am the master spy
You shouldn’t have to suffer
Because you didn’t get what you want
Track Name: Mushroom War
And then came the time
The crown-wearing man
He had a plan
To save us

We listened to him
We wouldn’t believe
He begged us to see
Like he did

There are no clear winners
In the mushroom war
Only nuclear winters
In the mushroom war
We are all survivors
In the mushroom war
We’re all made into liars
In the mushroom war

We thought our world couldn’t end
We thought we had seen it all
We thought the sky couldn’t fall
Upon us

But he was right
In the worst kind of way
It happened that day
In the firelight

There are no clear winners
In the mushroom war
Only nuclear winters
In the mushroom war
We are all survivors
In the mushroom war
We’re all made into liars
In the mushroom war

When it all came crashing down
We couldn’t conceive
Why he’d have to leave
Without us

There are no clear winners
In the mushroom war
Only nuclear winters
In the mushroom war
We are all survivors
In the mushroom war
We’re all made into liars
In the mushroom war
