Track Name: Love Yew
I'VE HEARD GREAT YELLOW NOISE
UNDEAD, UNCOOL, UNINTERESTING
JUST WANT WHAT'S BEST FOR YOU
THE MOON, THE WORLD, IDIOT ME
CUZ I LOVE YEW
JUST LOVE YEW
AND I NEVER THOUGHT THAT I COULD BE
SO HAPPY
JUST HAPPY
WHATEVER BABY DOES TO ME

IT'S YOU, YOU DO IT WELL
IT'S YOU AND YOU DO IT SO WELL TO ME
DARK AS DEATH WHEN YOU WALK AWAY
HONEY, DON'T YOU EVER LEAVE
OOH BABY, DON'T EVER LEAVE ME
THEY DROWN IN STORMS SEEKING OUT WHITE LIGHTNING
SHAKE LIKE THUNDER FOR ME

LOVE YEW

I'VE HAD SOME FUN AND HOW
ALOOF, ANGRY, ASLEEP RIGHT NOW
JUST WANT WHAT'S BEST FOR ME
AND I DON'T SEE ANYONE BUT THEE
CUZ I LOVE YEW
JUST LOVE YEW
I NEVER KNEW THAT I COULD BE
SO HAPPY
WHATEVER BABY DOES TO ME

IT'S YOU, YOU DO IT WELL
IT'S YOU AND YOU DO IT SO WELL TO ME
DARK AS DEATH AT HEAVEN'S GATE
HONEY, DON'T YOU EVER LEAVE
OOH BABY, DON'T EVER LEAVE ME
THEY DROWN IN STORMS SEEKING OUT WHITE LIGHTNING
SHAKE LIKE THUNDER FOR ME

SHAKE LIKE THUNDER FOR ME
Track Name: Wash
THE DOOR WAS OPEN, DID YOU TAKE A PEEK
DIRT UNDERNEATH EVERY FINGERNAIL
THE FLOORBOARD CREAKS
WHY DON'T YOU TAKE A SEAT
KICKING AND SCREAMING
DON'T TAKE ME THERE

I DON'T WANT TO GO
YOU CANNOT MAKE ME

THE LEAVES ARE TURNING INTO AUTUMN BLOOD
ANOTHER "F" FOR THE FRIDGE, I KNOW
IF I GO EARLY, IT WILL BE BY WATER
BEGGING AND PLEADING
DON'T WANT TO GO

I DON'T WANT TO GO
YOU CANNOT MAKE

FALLING ASLEEP IN THE YARD AGAIN
NOBODY KNOWS HOW BAD IT IS BUT ME
LIVING IS WEIRD WHEN YOU'RE A MINOR FOX
I'M ASHAMED, HOW COULD I NOT BE?

I'M NOT THROUGH WITH YOU,
JESUS--DON'T TAKE ME

NO
Track Name: Blow
I WILL NEVER SPEAK OF THE SECRETS THAT WE KEEP
CRADLED TO MY BONES WHERE THEY'LL FADE AWAY TO SLEEP
AND
ALL I WANT FROM YOU IS THAT YOU NEVER EVER LEAVE ME

WHEN I TURN AWAY, FEEL YOUR DIGITS PUSHING IN DEEP
HATEFUL THOUGH YOU ARE, I WILL CRAWL TO WHERE YOU LEAD
ME
ALL I WANT FROM YOU IS THAT THIS SICK LOVE NEVER BREAK ME

I DON'T HAVE A CHOICE,
I JUST BLOW WHERE WEATHER TAKES ME
Track Name: Believe Me
YOU ARE THE SUN BEHIND THE CLOUDS
HIDING FROM EVERYONE AROUND
I SEE YOU SHINING BRIGHT AT ME
YOU ARE MY LIGHT RIGHT NOW

YOU ARE A HAUNTED LITTLE LAMB
GENTLE, BUT VENOMOUS AND SAD
I HOLD YOU DEARLY IN MY HEART
AND I WISH I COULD DO SOMETHING

BELIEVE ME
AND I WISH THAT I COULD DO SOMETHING

I FEEL THOSE PULSING SONAR EYES
FIND ME IN DARKNESS OR NIGHT'S LIGHT
I THINK OF WHAT I'D WANT TO SAY
IF THOSE EYES WERE FOR ME

FOR ME
AND I WISH THAT I COULD SAY SOMETHING

BELIEVE ME
AND I WISH THAT I COULD SAY SOMETHING
Track Name: Sick-Outt
I HOPE I NEVER SEE YOUR FACE AGAIN
CUZ YOU KNOW WHAT YOU'VE DONE TO ME
I DON'T DESERVE A SINGLE MEMORY
I HOPE I NEVER HEAR YOUR VOICE
AND IF I DROWN I'M A HAPPY MAN
I'LL DRIFT FAR AWAY FROM THE MESS YOU'VE MADE

AND I DON'T WANT TO DIE
BUT I'D RATHER DIE THAN BE WITH YOU
SICK OUT OF MY MIND
RAM A KNIFE RIGHT THROUGH MY EYE
INSTEAD OF YOU

I HOPE YOU FREEZE UP WHEN YOU HEAR MY NAME
AND FEEL THAT SWEAT ROLL DOWN YOUR NECK
DOES SHE KNOW I WON'T CALL YOU BACK?
A LITTLE LESSON OUGHTA DO THE TRICK
WHEN YOU MESS WITH THE WOLF
YOU GET THE TEETH
I WILL BURY YOU, STAY AWAY FROM ME

AND I DON'T WANT TO DIE
BUT I'D RATHER DIE THAN BE WITH YOU
SICK OUT OF MY MIND
RAM A KNIFE RIGHT THROUGH MY EYE
INSTEAD OF YOU

YOU ARE SUCH A LIAR
HANDS WHERE I CAN SEE THEM
BACK AWAY SO SLOWLY
MOTHERFUCKING PHONY
YOU ARE SUCH A LIAR
I'M THE SOLE SURVIVOR
BACK AWAY SO SLOWLY
THINK YOU CAN CONTROL ME?

I HOPE I NEVER HEAR YOUR VOICE AGAIN
AND IF I DROWN, I'M A LUCKY MAN
WATER IN MY LUNGS DOESN'T SOUND THAT BAD

AND I DON'T WANT TO DIE,
BUT I'D RATHER DIE THAN BE WITH YOU
SICK OUT OF MY MIND,
RAM A KNIFE RIGHT THROUGH MY EYE
INSTEAD OF YOU
Track Name: Baby
I GREW UP IN A FUNERAL HOME IN THE SOUTH
CATCHING LIGHTNING BUGS THAT STUNG ME AS I SWALLOWED THEM DOWN
WATCHING UGLY PEOPLE
SULKING AS THEY'D DRIVE ON BY
I WILL MAKE YOU SO HAPPY, BABY
MAKE YOU SO HAPPY

CHECKING IN TO MY REGULAR STAY AGAIN
THIS TIME, NOBODY'S TO BLAME BUT THE DEVIL'S SIN
EATING PILLS AND THOUGHTS OF DROWNING MYSELF IN THE TUB
I WILL MAKE YOU SO HAPPY, BABY
YOU'LL BE PROUD OF ME, BABY

BACK AT THE OFFICE I'VE BEEN GRINDING MY TEETH BACK DOWN
DOCTORS TELL ME WRINKLES FORM FROM HOW HARD I FROWN
PAINT A SMILE ON AND PICK UP THAT GODDAMN PHONE
CALL THE BOSS AND TELL HER
"NOBODY'S FUCKING HOME"
CALL MY BABY TELL HIM
"NOBODY'S COMING HOME"
CALL MY MAMA TELL HER
"NOWHERE EVER FELT ENOUGH LIKE HOME"

AND I'M TRYING TO FIGURE THIS OUT
I'M TRYING, BUT GOD IT JUST DOESN'T WORK
AND I'M TRYING TO PRETEND YOU'RE NOT LEAVING ME
AND I'M TRYING TO IGNORE THAT IT HURTS

I COULD MAKE YOU SO
I WANT TO MAKE YOU SO

I DON'T WANT TO THINK 'BOUT ANYTHANG AT ALL TOO HARD
I JUST WANT TO GO AND LAY IN MY BABY'S ARMS
