Track Name: The Quit
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
Track Name: Diggin' For The Devil
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
Track Name: Exit Sign
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
Track Name: Hide And Seek
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
Track Name: Hymns
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
Track Name: Justin Was A Junkie
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
Track Name: My Only Doll
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
Track Name: Marry Me
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
Track Name: The Safety Of The Lights
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
Track Name: The Smell Of Strangers
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
Track Name: To The Devil
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
