Open Heart Surgery (free) 02:41
This is it, no more time I may not wake up again Though I've lived a full life I'm not ready for the end Ooh, I'm scared Ooh, I'm scared Fit the mask, breathe the gas Think of all I have loved Say a prayer just in case Someone reaches for me from above Ooh, I'm scared Ooh, I'm scared Cut the skin, break the bone Open up, anybody home Replace part of me, Open Heart Surgery Stop the bleeding, stop the bleeding, stop the bleeding, stop the bleeding, stop the bleeding, oh Family, so worried I'd only survive in their memories I'll show them yet, I'm alive Don't you see

Blind 02:42
She stares off into the night And feels the darkness' weight Filled with only self hate And so alone She reaches for the pills Measures her life's worth Rues the accident of her birth Turns off her telephone Blind, Blind, to the friends she would leave behind Blind, Blind, how fear it warps the mind Blind, Blind, she tries to leave that fear behind Depression's black cloud Has thunder so loud It can drown logic out And burn like hellfire Heart removed surgically Reassemble piece by piece Understanding is the key Don't let hope expire Blind, Blind, to the friends she would leave behind Blind, Blind, how fear it warps the mind Blind, Blind, she tries to leave that fear behind We carry our loads because we have to

Nothing 08:13
You are like the Earth I am like humanity You'll live on without me My poison and complacency And we know I dulled your glow And laid you low I wish it wasn't so Give me serenity to live with which I cannot change And the courage to change the things I can Lord, the wisdom to know which is which I won't fight you as you slip from my hands, oh no In that moment, lights were low And my fingers graced the notches of your spine As you lay there, kissed by moonlight Falling on your breast, supine You were everything, I was nothing And we spoke only with our eyes You were inexorable, even as we moved as one I knew it would be the last time, no longer mine You were everything, I was nothing, and we spoke only with our eyes

Snapshots 05:11
Remember the bar we sat in With the neon sign on the wall That said sleep is the baby mama of death I remember thinking to myself Maybe that's why you liked it so much Makes you appreciate each breath You are like the Earth I'll take snapshots in my brain I'll need them to remember But you won't need to remember me the same I spoke so casually And you know I would always lie And I knew you'd never let me inside And when you came back from Arizona I knew my love couldn't fight your wanderlust And I was only one step on the ride It's only a matter of time You are like the Earth I'll take snapshots in my brain I'll need them to remember But you won't need to remember me the same So it goes So as for now I'll soak up each breath I couldn't really ask for more Some time in the future I'll pick up the pieces of me And life will carry on as before
5.
Modern society only teaches to persecute Those without connections that can't reach the fruit Leaders short term, short change, all lies, no truth Lining their pockets at the expense of the youth In ourselves we trust, because nothing else is trustworthy to us Scrapping over scraps, part time, can't get mine Can't own a home like my parents did, we live in a different time So apathetic, easy to keep in line Our future's aborted, victims of organised crime In ourselves we trust, because nothing else is trustworthy to us
6.
Android man, product of my programming Day to day, doesn't mean anything So take my skin, take my bone Wrapped in you, I am home Mood manipulator, make me feel Bend my strings, make me real So alone, yet ever so connected Beautiful sounds that link us are humanity reflected So take my skin, take my bone Wrapped in you, I am home Mood manipulator, make me feel Bend my strings, make me real
7.
Lost yourself again, at the bottom of a can Wasted and complacent, another dream slips away I'm tired of standing here, just holding out my hand Your eyes will just glaze over, and you'll lose another day Cos I don't wanna have to watch you implode in slow motion I don't wanna have to watch you drink away all you have that's good I don't want to watch any more, even though I should Always disconnected, hide in your hollow heart The only time you're sober, is hungover in your bed Every time your friends reach out, you just tear us apart I'm starting to think by now, there's nothing left to be said Cos I don't wanna have to watch you implode in slow motion I don't wanna have to watch you drink away all you have that's good I don't want to watch any more, even though I should Just keep on telling myself to walk away You know I should
8.
Stress 03:34
I guess you could say that I'm doing okay Just living my life from day to day Oh give me some good old lobotomy It doesn't matter anyway I am fine Honestly It's only stress Work sets you free I guess you could say that everything is going to plan But nothing ever comes for free I'm just waiting 'til I've finished my time In a contract signed in infancy I am fine Honestly It's only stress Work sets you free
