Track Name: None the Wiser
Looking through an old book
of letters to a former love
These words are all the same
seems not much has really changed
These lies are all the same
I take to drink to drown the shame
Still apologizing
for all the same damn things
Still apologizing
but I've not learned a thing

I haven't grown just gotten older
I'm none the wiser
My story's played out
my bed grown colder
I'm None the wiser

When will I
When will I
When will I learn

Conviction lifted
you've been absolved
The blame has shifted
and I take the fall
Conviction lifted
I've been absolved
The blame has shifted
and you take the fall

We haven't grown just gotten older
We're none the wiser
Our story's played out
our bed grown colder
We're none the wiser
Track Name: Back to You
Jersey wasn't so hard to leave
once I drank her out of my system
But the scar she cut
disproportionately resembles
something missing

I dig these tunnels back to you
Dig these tunnels back to you
Dig these tunnels back to you
Dig these tunnels back to you

And I've been underground far longer
than I was ever in her light
So long I can't remember
if she ever smiled for me
or was I caught up
in the season of her deceiving

I dig these tunnels back to you
Dig these tunnels back to you
Dig these tunnels back to you
Dig these tunnels back to you
Track Name: Holy Man
I feel too much or not enough
Try to exorcise the ghost
but get caught in the cusp
While the boys are all screaming
"Give it up! Give it up!"
the blank page stares back silent

Seems I've lost myself in dream
I pull the thread from splitting seam
pray to see
Pick the wound a hope to bleed
but nothing

Calling on darkness
to pull me out of here
I don't need no holy man
No I don't need no hold man
Black Madonna
Black Madonna are you near

Seems I've lost myself in dream
I pull the thread from splitting seam
pray to see
Pick the wound and hope to bleed
but nothing
Track Name: Heather
"Come to New York for the weekend"
she says
she'll buy you a ticket and find you a bed
While you feel yourself drifting
into those blue eyed pleas again

Maybe this time she'll see you
Maybe this time she'll let you in

Well I'm just the girl
who used to be for friend
Begged you for just one kiss
so I could feel again
Yeah I'm just the girl
who begged for a broken heart
so I could sing again
Please help me sing again

Remember Peru?
You'd just kissed a girl
and goddamn
she couldn't stand to lose
Bashful eyed
Tone subdued
She had you
She knew she had you
She knew she had you

Maybe this time she'll see you
Maybe this time she'll follow through

Well there you go
getting weak in the knees again
Maybe this time she'll let you in
Maybe this time she'll see you

And I'm just the girl
who begged for a broken heart
so I could sing again
Please help me sing again

Well I ain't a pretty girl
And I ain't no mystery
You've held
You've held every part of me
so I'm bound to lose
I'm bound to lose
I'm bound to lose

Cause love don't last for the broken
And this is what I wanted
So really I should thank you
Track Name: Drama, Baby
Thank you, love, for another song
Thank you, dear, for this aching heart
Pain it is our bread
and silence is our biggest fear
Let's break it now
break it down
and turn it up

Feel this weight
as I come crashing, crashing down
Your lies escape
while I listen for their sound
Is there a song in all of this
you've been pushing me to write
All the melodies eluded me
until you spoke those words tonight

Thank you, love, for another song
Thank you, dear, for this aching heart
Pain it is our bread
and silence is our biggest fear
Let's break it now
break it down
and turn it up

Well this ain't no drama, baby
so stop worrying about what people say
it's just a song we sing
And we bore it from our love
and built it from our tears
Don't let it go
Don't let it go

Thank you, love, for another song
Thank you, dear, for this aching heart
Pain it is our bread
and silence is our biggest fear
Let's break it now
break it down
and turn it up
Track Name: Honey Rain
Drop the needle
Scratch this itch
Drown out the whole world
and reminisce

Bitter poison
Bitter poison
So sweet
So sweet
Your sadness on my walls
Your sadness on my walls
reminding me
So sweet
So sweet

Rush comes your soul
coursing through my veins
unfolding
unfolding

Bitter poison
Bitter poison
So sweet
So sweet
Your sadness on my walls
Your sadness on my walls
reminding me
So sweet
So sweet

I hear these songs
through your ears
I sing these words
in your tongue
I weigh this void
on your scales
until what's left
is just the sum


I'm just the sum of your roots
I'm just the sum of your roots
I'm just the sum of your roots
I am all that's left of you
