Track Name: Hello Stranger
You may have helped me grow
A life I'd never know without you-
Made me forget all this stupid bliss
Is not as infectious as it seems
There are plenty of remedies

I was so in love
I thought you'd be the one
Next to me at my grave I thought
Forever we'd be slaves
We were bound so tight, it felt so right. I thought..

I would know you any way
I would know you any day
But I don't know you now
I don't know you

I'd barely have to think of what to say
Being around you came naturally
Well look at us now
We can barely say hello-

My memories, was it worth it when you left me?
Did you end up reaching that 'better time'
Ya 'find yourself?' Did you ever pine for me?
Or did you forget me completely?

Well I would've known you any day
I would've known you any way
But I don't know you now
I don't know you

Ohh, I was your fall. You owe it all to me
Ohh, I was your fall. You owe it all to me
Track Name: Laurenland
I'm safe in my dreams
You cannot, you cannot get to me
This is where I'm happy
In a world you'll never see

And I am bored by conversation
'Bout the same old things every day
Oh, I never get tired of the way that my imagination
Seems to comfort me by faithfully never growing old

Chasing my tail around the globe
And I'm the only one who knows
It's a game that I play
I'm not here to stay
Soon you'll watch me fly away
To lands where children like me escape

Will I see the day that my dreams become real
And as the good years slip away
Nothing is the same
But my imagination stayed

Chasing my tail around the globe
And I'm the only one who knows
It's a game that I play
I'm not here to stay
Soon you'll watch me fly away
To lands where children like me escape
Track Name: Blood Up My Sleeve
You got me sippin' on wine bought form the bottom of the sea
You got me rollin' out lines I never thought would make it out of me
You got me so in love with the reckless way that you breath
You got me hypnotized by the evil in your eyes, oh baby you got me

There's nothin' like rulin' the world
Or even a beautiful girl
Who'll do anything you ask for
Call me lover, call me fighter
Tell me your heart's desire
Make me a criminal

Tell me nothing's up your sleeve
I'm not one of your enemies
You may have made me bad
But I'm standing by your side
While no one else can take your crime
Well I don't mind cause
You'll never believe
I got blood up my sleeve

And I want you, and I need you
Wherever you are, whenever
You know I'll be there, too
To please you, but I've deceived you
Every night I gotcha thinkin' I'm good for you
But I'm bad too
Track Name: Formaldehyde
Brother, is this what you thought you'd find?
Is this what you meant by the key to life?
Look at you now, you've got your own throne
Your door's made of iron, your bed's made of stone
You kept your treasure hidden in your own home
A box full of needles, but nothing to sew

You once qualified for America's best
And you fucked it up and, well, you know the rest
The weight on your shoulders is all you passed up
All that your pride told you wasn't enough
How do you manage, what keeps you going?
Do you think it will last long? What with you knowing

That the formaldehyde in your veins
Is what keeps you living to waste another day

Since you lost track of where you're going
Despite all the hearts that kept on showing you where you should be
Well honestly, I still haven't judged you by your cover
Though it may seem a little rougher than all the rest
I understand what you meant

And by the way, I hope you know you're not a slave
To that sweet, sweet syrup you thought you craved
I'm still holding out for you, there's not a doubt
That you'll find your path again
Whenever you're ready to start, remember
There's formaldehyde in my own heart keeping you there

When you come to
When you wake up form the trance
That you fell in when momma wasn't looking
And oh, remember the boy that you were?
He ruled you first
You owe nothing at all to that mistake that helped you forget your fall

The smoke that rose from your actions has cleared
You still belong here
No matter how long the fire, the love for a brother never expires
So I'll take you to the river and wash your burns
