The Quit 03:59
I’m quitting my life cold turkey I’m saving up for a spell in a spa on a beach Far from your reach I’m quitting my life cold turkey I won’t be here when you make it back to our home You’ll be on your own And even if it takes a long time For my hands to stop shaking Even if it’s harder than I thought it would be It’s what I need I’m quitting my life cold turkey It’s the only way out for a junkie like me To fi nally be free And even if it takes a long time For my hands to stop shaking Even if it’s harder than I thought it would be It’s what I need

Diggin for the devil Crowing in time Searching for gold down in the dirt Felt like crime Like a line or four Felt like we had been here once before It burned our faces It came in stages And took an honest girl down to the grave Felt like crime Like a lion’s roar Felt like we had been here once before Fell under the devil’s spell Courted boys and belles Dragged along the sand into the furl Felt like crime Like a year or more Felt like we had been here once before Just wanna ride the bull, drink until I’m full Just wanna ride the bull, fi ght till I’m thrown to the wolves Just wanna ride the bull, and drink until I’m full Just wanna ride the bull but the devil appeared too soon

Exit Sign 04:07
How many years left How many hands left to hold on to Where are all the crowded streets I used to roam in Where are the flowers you promised me I could leave at any time but I just keep one eye on the exit sign How many faults left How many ends until I wake Where are all the muddy streets I used to crawl through Where is the world you promised me I could leave at any time but I just keep one eye on the exit sign

Lipstick is only good for marking lovers Acting is only good for selling lies Falling’s the only way to get high The mind’s only place to hide Lipstick is only good for marking lovers Water is the only way to get dry Creation’s the only way to never die The mind’s the only place to hide Dancing is only good for touching strangers Hands are only made to be tied Marriage is only made to ease our minds The mind’s the only place to hide
5.
Hymns 03:38
Don’t sing me your hymns Or watch me sleep I’ve always been alone between the sheets I would say goodbye but I just can’t seem to leave Don’t call me names Or believe I want fame I’ve always wanted love and I know it’s not the same I would hope to die but I just don’t want to leave Don’t show me your face All covered in tears I’m busy with my own mind I’ve been stuck here for years I would like to sing but it’s hard enough just to breathe Don’t sing me your hymns At the end of the day I’ve always been alone And that’s how it should stay I would say goodbye but I just don’t want to leave

The truth is Justin was a junkie And never quite learned to read Held me down and told me it’d be alright You never know how it feels until you try The truth is his brother was the danger Carving out a tattoo with a knife The truth is I’m lucky I got out alive You never know how it feels until you try Met a man who said that he was holding Said he had the best in town Woke up three days later with a stranger by my side You never know how it feels ‘til you try Met a man who told me that he loved me Said he’d never felt anything before So I gave him my heart and trust he’d never tell a lie ‘Cause you never know how it feels ‘til you try The truth is everywhere there’s danger And promises are neither facts nor lies The truth is none of us are getting out alive So I’m gonna live until I die I’m gonna live until I die I’m gonna live until I die
7.
My Only Doll 01:36
I’ll pick up sticks and braid my hair until I’m grey and old And I will take a moment to undress my only doll I’ll stand outside the window with my arms stretched at my sides And I will take a moment to prepare them for my flight I’ll fi nd my flaws and hunt them down and kick with all my might And I will take a moment to punch anyone who’ll fight I’ll pick up sticks and braid my hair until I’m grey and old And I will take a moment to undress my only doll And I will take a moment to address my weary soul
8.
Marry Me 02:47
I have never seen the sun I’ve only ever had the light on Marry me, marry me I have never met a man With hands strong enough to hold my hand Marry me, marry me Marry me, marry me I never promised you a wife We say things we don’t mean at night Marry me, marry me Marry me, marry me And I wanna sing about anything else but love I wanna sing about anything else but love I have never seen the sun I’ve only ever had the light on
9.
Sometimes you seem to stop before the crowd calls And show your naked front In the moments just before your song ends You feel you haven’t said enough The pills won’t work the way you want them to They never do They take your mind but not your need to Live under the safety of the lights Sometimes you seem to fall before the crowd calls And show the tip of your tongue Like a stripper who likes her work You’re never quite done Killing them won’t work the want it to They don’t die like that You’ll take their faces but not your need to Live under the safety of the lights Sometimes you seem to stop before the crowd calls And show your bleeding heart Just as the curtain falls you Know you’re only at the start
10.
The smell of strangers The scent of sin The work of ages The taste of gin The fault of no one The dirty spin The smell of strangers The scent of sin The lure of danger Thrill of the win The smell of strangers Armpits of men The fall of pelvis Rasp of chin The smell of strangers The scent of sin
11.
To The Devil 05:29
Why do we never talk You never hear me Why do we never love You never touch me You never seem to understand You never tell me anything you feel I try to give all I can You never say anything that’s real Wherever we go We go together To the devil To the devil Why do you never sing to me anymore You don’t hear my lullaby Why do we never sleep anymore ‘Cause I can never say goodbye And why can’t you ever hold me tight You don’t lie still Why do you think I must take flight ‘Cause you always say you will Wherever we go We go together To the devil To the devil To the devil, to the devil, to the devil, to the devil, to the devil
