Track Name: Lovely, Lovely (Come in Bloom)
Lovely, lovely, lovely flower buds
blanket, blanket, my beating heart
reflecting, refracting, streams of golden light
shower softly, on me tonight

I hope you know, what it is that captivates me so
and the love you feel, I promise you it will only grow

come in bloom without pretension
the only goal is your affection
yet you maintain this deflection

oh, take my heart

Lovely, lovely, lovely flower buds
blanket, blanket, my beating heart
reflecting, refracting, streams of golden light
shower softly, on me tonight (x2)

as the evening slowly falls and envelops us all
i stand and wait, anxious to know where your interests lie
but if you tell me off, and break my heart, i'll have no choice but to die
wearing a tear stained smile, i meekly mumble "i promise i'll be fine"

come in bloom without pretension
the only goal is your affection
yet you maintain this deflection

oh, kill my heart

Lovely, lovely, lovely flower buds
blanket, blanket, my beating heart
reflecting, refracting, streams of golden light
shower softly, on me tonight (x2)
Track Name: If You're An Angel, You Will Suffocate on Earth
to have no faults, that's only in dreams
that's what they said, that's what they said

it can't maintain without tearing away
that's what they said, that's what they said

can't keep it safe from our fucking hands
that's what they said, that's what they said

if can't hate then be damned
that's what they said, that's what they said

well they're right
all angels will suffocate on earth

come night
we'll strip the world of anything of worth

and if you're of the mind that's bound to say
"rainy days will fade away"
endless floods will prove you wrong
and blacken out that happy face

so if there's something you hold dear
kill it now out of fear
because the one thing we hate most
are hearts unsullied and demure

i met a girl who did nothing but scream
that's what they said, that's what they said

i'm told they trampled, spit on her dreams
that's what they said, that's what they said

because she wished to fill our fucking hands
that's what they said, that's what they said

her wrists have valleys, for our demands
that's what they said, that's what they said

[pre-chorus]

[chorus]

we blame it on her heartbeat
because of it we can't sleep
you can't blame us being jealous
of the angels that are above us

we'll rip them out of heaven
with our taped-on wing ascension
how dare they walk among us
the perfect and the vaunted
Track Name: This Summer
Look towards the sun, it's an endeavor
why blind myself when it's cooler indoors
Even if I changed, though probably never
the same root problems are abundantly sure

It's not giving up, it's intended function
forcing ideals does me no good
cherish any bliss that finds it's way in
my strikingly sober view of the world

I'm two years old and I'm bathed in sunlight
among the intricate web of events that will determine my life
as soon as you see what's exactly happening
twenty years are waving goodbye

Aspirations are high at the start of summer
This year's destined to be better you'll see
Even though I know, it's a futile effort
something has to stop the depression in me

It's not giving up, it's brutal realization
what influence you wield means nothing
cherry buds amiss, frame moral desolation
and a strikingly sober view of the world

[chorus]

nya nya nya nya nya nya

we look towards aging as a promised remedy
for things we've yet experienced but think we should achieve
as soon as you see what's exactly happening
twenty years are waving goodbye
Track Name: I Don't Care At All
Smile harder today, that's what I tell myself as I wake
If you act like others, maybe others
Will treat you as the same

That's just what I say

To keep myself out of my (head)

And if that's all there really is, then I don't care at all

So I'll walk out and pray, that behind the tears I'm okay
Because if you let others know you're bothered
Their perception won't be the same

That's just what I say

Mmm mmm mmm

So today's my day, that's what I tell myself as I wake
If there's hope to dream of, maybe even without love
I'd like to live all the same

That's just what I say

To keep myself out of my (head)

And if that's all there really is, then I don't care at all
Track Name: Cease to Exist
when you wake
i'll be gone
i'll be dead
laid to waste

when you wake
sing my song
sing it well
but not in haste

when you wake
you'll want to sleep
sleep harder
than before

when you wake
life
not death
you'll fear more

when you wake
you'll wake
to the absence of light

when you wake
suffocate
because depression
holds tight

when you wake
give up
better days are a lie

when you wake
hang your head in defeat
and sigh

a child plays alone in the field after dark
minding only himself yet fate has come
to rip fragile breaths right out of his clutch, he'll die gruesomely longing for his mother's touch
we will all be discarded so don't you look sad we're inconsequential parts of the past
can you look at me and say you're prepared
to cease to exist and become what's no longer there?
