Track Name: Dumb Luck
Come on baby, kill some time with me
The Sun has set and I can’t see a thing
If you ever want to feel disarmed
I have a bed where we can see the stars

Shame how time gets tight
And how Bad dreams can ruin nights
And dumb Luck gets us by
If we never shut our eyes.

Your siren sings out through my head
Makes me feel I’m more than me
Ring this bell for the rise and fall
Love should always break the law

Shame how time gets tight
And how Bad dreams can ruin nights
And this dumb Luck gets us by
If we never shut our eyes.


If you want to go blind
I swear there’s nothing to it – If you want to do it
And If you want to Kill Time
Anyone can do it - I swear there’s nothing to it

Remember how I said I’d call?
And how I felt so all alone?
The aftermath of time apart
I have a bed where we can see the stars
Track Name: Fat the Bird
Fat little Bird Please fly away
I’ve grown so tired of those things you say
The way you talk sitting in your tree
All your sticks and stones they can’t hurt me

You’ll never drag me down
Your evil eye has just burned out

Say Goodbye Say so long
Say it hurts to be alone
Say Goodbye Say so long
Say it hurts to be alone


Sick little bird please fly away
With your sad sad songs of yesterday
Nobody wants to hear you sing and no body cares especially me
Cause your so strung out on all these dead memories
So find a new way to set your little mind free

You’ll never drag me down
Your evil eye has just burned out

Say Goodbye Say so long
Say it hurts to be alone
Say Goodbye Say so long
Say it hurts to be alone

You gonna try and drag me down baby?

You’ll never drag me down
Your evil eye has just burned out

Say Goodbye Say so long
Say it hurts to be alone
Say Goodbye
I said say so long
Let me tell you how this bird has flown
And I’ll show you how everything grows
And we all can find our way back home
Track Name: Alright for Now
I’m addicted to falling down
I’ve been known to scrape my bleed
Left the Salvation Army behind
Who really won all the wars for me?

You can take me down
To wear I want to be
You got a lot behind your eyes
Like you can see through me

If we get that far
We're long gone - Gonna blast off
Gonna rip this shit right off
Just hold on - We're long gone And it’s all right for now

Said a prayer while holding my breath
Two Thousand Leagues Under the Sea
I might have a few little habits to break
It costs a lot to feel this free

You can take me down
To wear I want to be
You got a lot behind your eyes
can see through me

If we get that far
We're long gone - Gonna blast off
Gonna rip this shit right off
Just hold on - We're long gone And it’s all right for now

You can take me down
You can make me bleed
I see midnight behind your eyes
you always seem far away from me
Track Name: Black by Six
Caught starring at my self today
I looked so gone so far away
A pill to put my head asleep
Domestication of the thief

Lets get ready For the fall
It’s black by six now and where all alone

Lost autumn evening carnival
Gonna ride this ride until I lose control
Staring at the circus freaks
Funny how they look like me

Lets get ready For the fall
It’s black by six now and where all alone

Unlucky numbers
Are always strung together
Strung by the devil
Strung out forever

Lets get ready For the fall
It’s black by six now and where all alone

Unlucky numbers
Are always strung together
Strung by the devil
Strung out forever
Track Name: Dear Mrs. Crowley
Can't seem to control it
It’s quite All right
Feel free to explode Dear
We got all night
I got my morals
They’re pretty loose
I'm gonna destroy you
You'll love it too!

Never control it
You Gotta unload it

But every time I walk away
To see what I’ve become
I just find another way
To stare into the sun

Feels like a freight train
Inside my head
I know you can help me
I’m so under fed
I got a bad brain
It's all for you
Can't seem to forget you
Hopelessly blue!

Won’t control it
Gotta unload it

But every time I walk away
To see what I’ve become
I just find another way
To stare into the sun

I hear that bad luck
It comes in 3s
We should get started
Dear Mrs. Crowley
I’ve got my reasons
I like to share
Take off that smile
We both don’t care
Track Name: Sworn Believers
And all those little voices say Hey,
is it time to fade
In too that place - That steals your grace
Before you’re ready to go!

So, are you feeling low?
Don’t let it show – nobody knows
How bad you just want to leave here

And now I know what I’m leaving behind

Time never slows
And nobody knows
Where the bad seeds go
Is it under the ground?

Just let it fade
If It wants to haunt you
The Bad Seeds ought to
Stay under ground?

Say, I think I know your face
What a waste – all that hate
When you pull that trigger

Now, I’ve been shot down
My vote don’t count - I’ve been bought out
By all the sworn Believers

And now I know what to leave behind

Time doesn't slow
And nobody knows
Where the bad seeds go
Is it under the ground?

Just let it fade
It wants to haunt you
The Bad Seeds ought to
Stay under ground?
