Track Name: As Naked As We Came
Oh don't you see that we were meant to be alone in this world
We always have someone, but no consistent other, then grow up
As naked as we came

I've gotten lost, I never know the way
Only things that know me are my brain waves
I thought my thoughts lacked consistency
I'm still as naked as I came

Strip me bare
Leave me on my hands and knees
Try as you might you won't accomplish a thing
You'll always be as naked as you came
Just like me

They call me back to drain my lungs
Cause when you have no love the air compensates for your heart
A heart that spends no wasted time
So I have learned to love with my spine
I must never feel alone
I don't know what it's like not to be
I've always been by my own side
I'm afraid I won't be
I'm afraid I won't develop new skin on my knees
I'm afraid I'll leave as naked as I came x2

Strip me bare
Leave me on my hands and knees
Try as you might you won't accomplish a thing
You'll always be as naked as you came
Just like me
As naked as we came
Track Name: San Andreas
I've been looking for you for a long time
But I've been searching through the desert finding my mind
Loco they say means crazy
You better believe without you I'm insane
I Remember the days when everything went your way
But I forgot there was a fault in San Andreas
I made my way through trying not to fake it
But my boots got stuck in the mud

I woke up a Wednesday morning
I wanted to change the world but I couldn't get out of bed
Nothing was straight the clouds were gone and you weren't there with me
What a catastrophe

You weren't a light but a giant fire
You ignited the flame in my heart but I'm too weak
When you were a boy I was warned for goodness sake
Don't love the man that will burn you to the ground

I woke up a Wednesday morning
I wanted to change the world but I couldn't get out of bed
Nothing was straight the clouds were gone and you weren't there with me
What a catastrophe

Ooohh I'm going crazy
But I'll put it aside cause I can't go a day without you
Track Name: Thanks for Asking
Skin and bones
That's all you have to show
Cause without a home or a place to go
All you are is your skin and bones

I had no room for hate
But when you left it overcame
My body, my skin and bones
A black river flowed through my soul

I got no time for a cynics smile
I got no time for a child of your sorts
I wanna be loved but I don't want the burden of saving your life

I tried oh I tried
But the current slowed me down
With water in my eyes I lost all fight
But I tried god only knows I tried
Oh you boarded up you mind
Closed for the winter
But the weathers the same all year in California

Chorus

I'm fine without the pain thanks for asking
I'm fine without the weight
Oh I'm fine without the troubles
I'm fine with out the lies
I'm fine on my own Thanks for asking
I'm fine without you thanks for asking

Chorus

I'm fine on my own thanks for asking
I'm fine with out you
Track Name: No Eyes
Oh staring at the sun I feel had, I feel had
Oh it's four o six am I feel mad I feel mad
When you're still and lost alone at last, at last
You feel a numb except the moment in your chest

You lie, hoping for for the rest you thought you would get, but none of it will last
So you pretend to see nothing and then you imagine that you saw it all
So then you don't if nothing was something and you're left craving the stuff you never had

You told yourself you weren't sad, weren't sad
Well I, I feel mad, I feel mad

And I don't know, i don't know, and I probably never will
So what's the point of dreaming when the world is silent still
What's the point of failing of the world is silent still

I want to cry, I want to scream
But all my tears are in the river flowing through your mind
And my voice has no more whispers left to give
I still can give
Just not what I'd like
So I'm silent still
In a paradox of might

Staring at the moon I feel had, I feel had
It's four eighteen am I feel mad, I feel mad
I've gone mad
Track Name: Bathtub Song
When it’s 3 am and you're emptying your soul into the bathtub
You’re thinking how did I become one to steal those that I love
I think if you love anyone it’s almost enough
Unless you stole yourself
‘Cause if you have nothing to look inside upon, what’s the point of seeing
If you have nothing to wage your doubt upon, what’s the point of moving along

It might be cliche to say, but I’m more than okay with just a picture of you in my head

It’s only when you stare at a wall that you see yourself clearly
Yet when I take a knife and carve a hole in it, all you see is the moon
And all the stars and the sea and the land and me
You don’t want to see such a thing
You stole me away
But I’ll just look in the mirror, or maybe a picture, it’s alright
I don’t need anyone but the one I am
Just the one who will always be in my skull
Just the one who will always be on my bones

It might be cliche to say, but I’m more than okay with just a picture of you in my head
It might be cliche to say, but I’m more than okay with just a picture of you in my head

It’s 3 am and I’m pouring my soul into the sink
Because the bathtub is too full of you
You, you, you
yo, yo, yo
y, y, y,
Me
Track Name: Self Loathing Fair
Having a stroke didn't hurt me
Looking up and seeing myself alone is what hurt me
I have to force the words off my tongue because I can't say what's on my mind in the moment
A mind that goes a million miles a minute but can only feel one thing
Desensitize pain sensitize sorrow

You get so tired of feeling nothing, so you reach into shallow waters, afraid to dive too deep
At least you've grasped onto something

What I need is out of reach so I just grasp the air
My nails are long, I'm starting to bleed
Take this oxygen away from me
Depressive state of mind is what kills
When you you are week having nothing might help
Desensitize pain sensitize sorrow
I tried time and time again to feel love
I couldn't so I just made up lust

You get so tired of feeling nothing, so you reach into shallow waters, afraid to dive too deep
At least you've grasped onto something

Curl your toes, down frow you brows
I can't take your care it will ruin my self loathing fair
My self loathing fair x3

You get so tired of feeling nothing, so you reach into shallow waters, afraid to dive too deep
At least you've grasped onto something
Track Name: Less of More
Oh don't you take a little piece of my prophesy along with you
It's been lost in the words and I can't find my way to the education you need me to
Ooo oo o I'm not one to complain when I'm alone
I just let my sorrows build up what do I do when I have no one to keep me from concaving

The salty waters saved me
They brought me down to the sea

Watching the air flow through my hidden holes gave me the chills I needed
To move on from my superficial ways and to create a love that's the face that not only the world wants to see

The salty waters saved me
They brought me down to the sea

I want to be no I need to be stripped down to my skull
I need to burn all that that I see in my conditioned qualities, leave myself with less of more
What if who I am at pure is worse than before
Am I worth being who I want to see

I must not let my doubts swallow my ambition
Must take a step and drop my postiche skin on the way

The salty waters saved me
They brought me down to the sea x2
