Track Name: Hedonist
If you wanna meet the devil
Take a good look at yourself
Like a comet seeks the sun
It will melt its icy core
All that's good all that's light
It won't take hold without a fight
If you wanna meet the devil...

I dreamed that your eyes turned black
I dreamed that your head followed back

It's too easy to be bad when you're a hedonist

If you wanna meet the devil..

I want to lay with you
I want to be raw and innocent next to you
This isn't the right time
The right feeling
Won't you come and please take me home

It's too easy to be bad when you're a hedonist
Track Name: Shadow
We're all stringin eachother along
If you're in my web I pull you with me too

I understand your suffering
But I can't take what you have to offer
If I give an inch you might take a mile

This is what it's like to live in the shadow
Of everyone else's mind
This is what it's like to live in the shadow
Of somebody else's mind
This is what it's like to live in the shadow
Of my mind
Track Name: Heart Deceiver
I can't understand the hypnotizing information my heart is receiving

I believe it could be deceiving

You're always saying how you usually don't say this or that
Well you're always saying how you usually don't act like that
Track Name: Clothesline
Put me out on a clothesline over the tide
So I can be washed up
Hung out to dry

Vague words grasping for verification
That will never depict how I feel
If I talked less and said what I meant,
That would make me sincere

Each time you worry
Lose opportunity
Fretting will only
Destroy your reality
Track Name: Grasp
How baby can I set you free
I don't wanna get lost in your misery

Watch you grasp
For the sand as it runs
From their hands

Don't you know how I move
I go two steps backwards but I'm always moving forward
Don't you know how I move
I'm just a body for you to prove a point to
How baby can I set you free
I don't wanna get lost in your misery

Watch you grasp
For the sand as it runs
From their hands
Track Name: Ooh Spooky
Get a head lamp
Collect cans
Listen to the yellin man
Tell me tell me I wish that we could speak
Tell me tell me all of your cat dreams
Life is a mystery when you only know
Only know your own name

Take me to the drive in I can't remember if it's fun
Put some music in my head I can't remember what I used to listen to
Take me to the drive in I can't remember if it's fun
Put some milkshake in my hair I can't remember where my roller skates are
Track Name: Ghost Mind
Ghost mind you wish you were a genius
Ghost mind you wish you were worth it
Ghost mind fold in on yourself
Ghost mind fold in on yourself

Cause there's not enough light to show you what's for dinner
And I'd rather not eat without a ghost to cook for
I'd rather not eat

When you detox your mind
You've gotta drink a lot of water to flush out the toxins

Don't tell anyone about the poison
Don't tell anyone about the poison
It only hurts on its way out

I wanna be unaffected

Ghost mind fold in on yourself
Ghost mind fold in on yourself
Cause there's not enough light
