Track Name: Filling In the Blanks
cut me off
i don't want what you've been giving me
starve me out
because this hunger is consuming me
cut me up
i need to feel that this is happening
put me down
do it hard and fast and set me free

filling in the blanks
feeding all the emptiness inside
filling in the blanks
falling in the holes you opened wide
seeing all the sites
blinded by the lights
wasting all my time dying on the vine

cut me off
i can't use what you've been giving me
starve me out
the more i get the more i need in me
cut me up
i need to feel that this is happening
put me down
do it hard and fast and set me free

filling in the blanks...
Track Name: Killing Time
the kisses you've been giving me
were meant for someone else
i can taste betrayal on your lips
the love you make is not for me
it's meant for someone else
there's betrayal in your movements

i'm just killing time
until you break my heart again
i'm just killing time
while you cheat me out for him

the answers you've been giving me
are meant to hide the truth
you evade me with your lies
the glances you've been shooting me
tell me more than you intend
you refuse to meet my eyes

night after night
i know you're in his bed
i try to sleep
but i can't escape my head
can i pretend i don't exist
you seemed to find a way
i close my eyes and dream
that i won't wake to see
another day

i'm just killing time
until you break my heart again
i'm just killing time
while you cheat me out for him
Track Name: This Is Happening
there's no safety here
anymore
with an empty heart
waiting for your call
but the phone won't ring
you're out with him
never be the same with you again

i could not feel it coming on
i could not see it coming on

thinking of the way you made me smile
i was hurting you all the while
but i didn't know
i thought you knew
that all the while
i was loving you

i could not feel it coming on
i could not see it coming on

turn your eyes away
(this is happening)
careful what you say
(this is happening)
cover up your ears
(this is happening)
bury all your fears
(this is happening)
Track Name: Over
in the harsh light of the day
we've been standing by
now you turn to look away
because the tears are in your eyes

and you know that it's over
and there's nothing left
to talk about

we are losing ground
and our time is ending
whatever we found
well, it's all crumbling down
Track Name: Nobody Ever
i'm a heartbeat away
from never coming home
i'll just pass the exit ramp
and keep on driving

and it feels like
i'm already gone
and it seems like
i've been there all along
and no one has ever felt this way before

i'm a heartbeat away
from my conclusion
can't be convinced to stay
in this illusion
Track Name: Watching / Waiting
you weren't alone
when I found you
would you make space for me in your life?
if you'd just give me the chance to please you
you know that i'd keep you satisfied

you keep me
watching and waiting
for your love

i'm always
watching and waiting
for your love

you weren't alone
when i won you
so you made space for me in your life
and just for a moment
it all seemed so perfect
but then that moment shot past us and died

you weren't alone
when i left you
you made space for him in your life
now the cycle has started over
but this time

i'm on the other side

i'm on the other side

i'm on the other side
Track Name: Get In
if you want to understand me
you can
and if you want to be just like me
you can
and whether you're in or out
i'm saying to get in

if you want to devastate me
you can
and if you want to learn to hate me
you can
and whether you're in or out
i'm saying to get in
Track Name: Riding Shotgun
riding around in my car
got the top down
riding around in my car
got the shotgun

nobody ever told me
that it could be like this
so empty
so alone
so hungry for your kiss
so fucked up in the head that
i can't even sleep
so i just drive around all night
on all these empty city streets

so now that i've got nothing
and you've got someone new
i don't see any choice in what i have to do
if i can't have you baby
there's nothing left to lose
i'm on the highway to your house
i set the speed
i hit the cruise

nobody ever told me
that it could be like this
so empty
so detached
so hungry for your kiss
wish i still had a choice in
what i have to do

i wish that i could take it back

i wish that i was still with you
Track Name: Snofall
nights like these
when all the snow is swirling around
on my tv
and from the sky
down to the ground
i believe in me

night like these
when there's no one else around
and my tv
is my only friend in town
i believe in me

in the darkness
you can't even see
but in the darkness i am free

night like these
when my whole world is crumbling down
and my tv is
my only sight my only sound
i believe in me
Track Name: Senses Report
you're just like me now
we're just finding out
that we're by ourselves
for us there's no one else

there's still time to fail
we'll just try again
both you and i know
it's not who you are
it's just what you show

just stay where you are
i'll find you, my friend
and if you should leave
i'll simply pretend
that you were never here with me


senses report:
where have you gone?
Track Name: Falling Away
seeing you there
gun in your hand
you're so frail
you're not a man
hanging on
that's no way to live
you're dead weight
not a thing to give

no last meal
why start eating now?
you can't feel
why weep aloud
all alone
it's just you and me
in the mirror
finally

coldest blue and jagged green
brightest white
I've ever seen
in the end
no one comes along
you're alone
and then you're gone

Falling away from me
I'm falling away from me...
