Track Name: Collateral Damage
Needle and thread, flesh and bone
Spit and sinew, heartbreak is home
Your suture lines sparkle like diamonds
Bright stars to light my confinement

The bow is so old, it's horsehair is glue
Sent to the factory, just like me and you
So how come they stayed your execution?
The audience roars it's a standing ovation

I'll be your mess, you be mine
That was the deal that we had signed
I bought a hazmat suit to clean up your waste
Gas masks, gloves to keep us safe
But now I'm alone in an empty room
Staring down immaculate doom

The clothes are packed off to Goodwill
I said my goodbyes up on that hill
The house is empty, the furniture sold
Soon your smells will decay to mold

Don't know why I bother calling, ain't nobody answering
Don't know why I bother singing, ain't nobody listening

First you inspect me
Then you dissect me
Then you reject me

First you inspect me
Then you dissect me
Then you reject me

I wait for the day
That you'll resurrect me

Barrel of the gun, rounds one two three
She says I have to pick: choose you, or choose me
Metal to the temple, the explosion is deafening
Lick the blood that covers me
She's the last one standing

There's a piece of lead where my heart should be
Doctor said too dangerous to take out
You'd better just leave it be
Body grew back around, a miracle, praise be
Now, if only I could get past airport security

The boogeyman sleeps on your side of the bed
Whispers in my ear: "Better off dead."
Fills my dreams with sirens and lights of regret
Kisses me gently when I wake up in a sweat

You crossed the water, left me ashore
It killed me enough, but you wanted more
You blew up the bridge, a mad terrorist
Waved from your side, threw me a kiss
I started to follow but realized to late
There was nothing but air beneath my feet

Are you happy in your misery?
Resting peaceful in desolation?
It's the final tie that binds us
The source of my consolation

Someone wake me up when it's over
When the evening silence softens golden
Just lay me on a bed of clover
Oh, I need help with this burden

First you inspect me
Then you dissect me
Then you reject me

First you inspect me
Then you dissect me
Then you reject me

I wait for the day
That you'll resurrect me
Track Name: Angel Fruit: The Peach & The Plum
I was the peach
You were the plum
Dancing to dance
Just to sing in the sun

You were my life
Yeah, you were mine
But we're singing to sing
Just to pass the time

Where did those days go?
Just sing in the rainbow
Loving at night and dreaming with halos

You were my life
Yeah, you were mine
But we're singing to sing
Just to pass the time

Look at her go
The most beautiful you know
Leave me in the dust
And breathing in the snow

You were my life
Yeah, you were mine

Reach for the door keys
Slapped at my hand

I was the peach
You were the plum
Dancing to dance
Just to sing in the sun

You were my life
Yeah, you were mine
But were singing to sing
Just to pass the time

Where did those days go?
Just sing in the rainbow
Loving at night and dreaming with halos

You were my life
Yeah, you were mine
But we're dancing to dance
Just to pass the time

Burning at night
And freezing my toes

I reach for the door keys
Slapped at my hand

Now Im just crying on the floor

You were the peach
I was the plum
Dancing to dance
Just to sing in the sun
Track Name: Hey Mister Universe
Dear Mister Universe
I’ve been so very hurt
You screwed me over
Since I was conceived
You gave me unstable genes
And made sure to confuse me

Dear Mister Universe
Your sure a jerk
I’ve been having to deal with your mistakes
Since I was born
Till I was eight
I always wondered why
My mom was crazy
You screwed her over
Too wa-who!
Your really quite a piece of work

Oh Mister, Mister Universe
Why must you be this way
I tried to behave
It only caused me so much pain
And when I was rude
So very crude
It didn't help at all

Dear Mister Universe
Please tell me what you want
Cuz I'm trying, I'm trying
My self esteem
Is low
My will declining

So are you watching
This unfold
Is the sky
A front row show
I wonder if you
Like to watch
This all unfold

Dear Mister Universe
Dear Mister Universe
You are quite a piece of work

Oh Mister, Mister Universe
Why don’t you leave me alone
Dear Mister Universe
Your wrecking my home

Dear Mister Universe
This ain’t comedy
My fate isn’t a commodity
So please be careful
Can’t you see
There’s only one of me

Oh Mister Mister Universe
Mister Universe
Track Name: Bones & Blues
I'm counting the bones
I'm counting the bones
The graveyard's cold
But I'm feeling so bold
I’m on a roll, a roll
The Rolling Stones couldn't hold me back
I'm gonna sing
I'm gonna yell
I'm gonna stomp
I'm gonna shout
I'm gonna say it now:

I'm counting the bones
I'm counting the bones
My hearts like stone
But it ain't too cold
Cuz the lighter in my pocket
The gasoline in my tub
Don't burn no more
But I'm still on fire...

I'm feeling the burn
I'm counting the bones
I'm counting, counting
I'm counting the bones
I broke my wrists
Breaking these chains
I cracked my skull
When I banged the pain away
But as I walk up this hill
When I hit the top
And the road stops
I'll touch the heavens
Before I fall right down to
Hell
The sun is bright
It does bring warmth
But the cold it's nice
It's bitter and the ice is old
It refreshes my soul
I won't ever do what I'm told

I'm counting the bones
I'm counting the bones
I'm counting, counting
I'm counting the bones
As we all fall down

I'm counting the bones
As we all fall down
Track Name: Madison Lane
The look in her eyes
It brings me to my demise
on my knees...

She'll be:
My demise,
her eyes...

There's nowhere to hide
My demise...

She's mine tonight
But I want her forever

She'll be demise
Just how I want to I die
In her arms tonight

I said:
Will you be here in the morning?
She said forever.
She said forever...

That look in her eyes
It'll be, my demise
Just how I want to die
In her arms
But it's only tonight
She said forever
Yeah

But she lied.
Track Name: Louie Louie
Louie Louie, oh no, you take me where ya gotta go, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, baby
Louie Louie, oh baby, take me where ya gotta go
A fine little girl, she waits for me
Me catch the ship across the sea
Me sailed the ship all alone
Me never think I'll make it home
Louie Louie, oh no no no, me gotta go, oh no
Louie Louie, oh baby, me gotta go
Three nights and days I sailed the sea
Me think of girl constantly
On the ship, I dream she there
I smell the rose in her hair
Louie Louie, oh no, me gotta go, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, baby
Louie Louie, oh baby, me gotta go
Okay, let's give it to 'em right now
Me see
Me see Jamaica,…
