California Goth Pop I've been killing time and losing sleep Anything to turn from light to shadow Once the darkness was my harmony My mirror girl, my tragic double Now she runs me like a pageant show Tiaras and tears will follow Writing madly in my diary Extravagant and bleakly hollow File under "California Goth Pop" File under "Won't Somebody Make This Stop" The sun is high but I can't see a thing Black spots where there should be smiling faces Sounds of summer by the open sea A razor in a bowl of peaches File under "California Goth Pop" File under "Won't Somebody Make This Stop"

Can't Breathe Going through my lines like a TV show Seeing you just behind the light like I made you up in my mind 'Cause no one sees you there I call your name but you don't answer I know it can't be you that keeps calling me Phone humming with your heartbeat Keep calling Keep calling Keep calling Keep calling I can't breathe I can't breathe when you're here I can't breathe when you're away I can't be this emotional, dear If I could, I would have stayed Floating through another anonymous day Trying to keep from feeling I made you up in my mind 'Cause no one sees you there I call your name but you don't answer The pills have all stopped working Or I'm much worse I keep falling asleep, but I can't Keep falling Keep falling Keep falling Keep falling I can't breathe I can't breathe when you're here I can't breathe when you're away I can't be this emotional, dear If I could, I would have stayed Keep returning, come back to me Don't believe that I won't follow...

Cure for Today All I want is a cure for today I can't bear for the sun to slip away But I'll try, I'll try to keep this feeling Take my hand and we'll run through the night It never ends if we keep the dream alive Here it comes, here it comes Close your eyes tight The light's on but there's no one home right now I'm outside where it's wet and wild Real life getting real-er all the time It's mine and I like it wild One more time just for the thrill One more time and I could kill I could kill for one more time Record's on - it's the same as before Makes me feel like I'm so much more Than they say Another state of mind The light's on but there's no one home right now I'm outside where it's wet and wild Real life getting real-er all the time It's mine and I like it wild One more time just for the thrill One more time and I could kill I could kill for one more time No one's left and I'm killing time You'll get yours And I'll get mine All I want is a cure for today All I want is a cure for today All I want is a cure for today All I want is a cure for today

Call Down the Night With a flash and a bang I was dreaming That I wasn't here And you weren't you But I was me only older In my bed with a book and a lemon scone There's a cat in my lap and the kettle on I'm awake but I'm floating Two feet up Call down the night Call down the night Call down the night Call down the night In my penthouse I recline, an angry heiress In a room with a view I'm furious with you for being careless There's a perfect square in an empty mind There's a dark horse made up of space and time Take a look and tell me what you find Call down the night Call down the night Call down the night Call down the night When you're feeling all alone And there's nowhere left to go Close your eyes and let me know Things are not what they seem, ever...

Rescued Objects He keeps his eyes on the ground He's got a box at his desk marked Lost and Found I check it every day 'Cause once he gave me some cat eye Ray Bans Show me what you feel compelled to seek Panning for gold in a state of sleep And are these rescued objects Products of a curator's tender heart Or are you scared to look up I don't know so I'll come back later Show me what you feel compelled to seek Panning for gold in a state of sleep I've tickets for this show And I happen to know he's dying to go I let them fall to the ground So I can check Lost and Found much later... Show me what you feel compelled to seek Panning for gold in a state of sleep I don't know why it's so impossible Can't you just try, can't you look and see Can't you look at me

Violet Black 02:41
Violet Black Is this where our story ends Yeah, I know about your secret heart And is my part just to pretend While the pages burn and fly apart I thought about it all night Two wrongs don't make a right, I know But I wish someone could hold me Violet black and velveteen sky Yeah, the stars will keep me company As I slowly come undone A lament in full symphony I thought about it all night Two wrongs don't make a right, I know But I wish someone could hold me Now

Third Party 02:58
Third Party Don't you know, he's going round the bend He's got that strange light in his eyes again Watch - he's counting steps now Sure he missed one Listen He's upset but you can't ask why Come around and have a drink or two Bring him flowers just to make him smile I know where he wants to go Tell him hi, and that I miss him so Bring him flowers just to make him smile Make him smile August fire Those hot and heavy days Too stunned to move, we dream in the shade Wait for something bright to come our way Maybe you'll see He's upset but you can't ask why Come around and have a drink or two Bring him flowers just to make him smile I know where he wants to go Tell him hi, and that I miss him so Bring him flowers just to make him smile Make him smile

Here I Go 03:22
Here I Go I've got my back against a wall I only wish that I could fall It's just the emptiness I crave Lead me to an open grave Here I go Here I go I'm turning black inside and out Hunted heart and haunted house The road to hell was ever mine You stole my reason You stole my rhyme Here I go Here I go Now I lay me down to sleep In a place no heart could beat Ribbons in my bed So dark, so red

Part Time You Every day, part time you Here and gone Disparu I'll be here waiting for The one I love Mon amour And if your heart's not willing to stay Slip a letter under my door And if your heart's not willing to go One look at you and I'll know for sure Rainy day, cold and grey Britannicas in the grate Meaningless, incomplete Fire makes words obsolete And if your heart's not willing to stay Slip a letter under my door And if your heart's not willing to go One look at you and I'll know for sure What worlds could lure you away from me What fiction, what point of view Is it a flaw or a rarity That highlights what's really true Part time you Part time you Part time you Part time you Part time you You are worth waiting for Part time you You found the secret door Part time you You are worth waiting for Part time you You found the secret Oh!

Last Call 04:04
Last Call Shiver in the air At 11 Black Oak I'm the last one here I just want to get this over with I know that you're inside And when I see you Things will go sideways There's no pretense, no artifice This isn't something I can fake Leaves are on the ground Battered gold and red I never meant to cross the line Wish I could take back What I said I know that you're inside And when I see you Things will go sideways There's no pretense, no artifice This isn't something I can fake Last call Last call Last call for another take Help me find the words to say Last call for another take Help me find the words to say Last call
