Track Name: Destiny's Garden
I've seen you wander the streets
without a sound
You stand at the base of my tower
when I look down
You've got coal in your eyes
fire brushing your sides
And you're in my head
even though it is screaming to

RUN RUN RUN
I'll meet you in
Destiny's garden
Before the sun rises
and sees what we've done.
I'm gonna
RUN RUN RUN
I'll meet you in Destiny's garden
before the sun rises
and sees what we've done

I've seen you wander through dreams
sprinkling sand
I've come to your castle
Past gate's guardians
I don't know what you'll decide
But you smile as we collide
And you're in my head
even though it is screaming to

RUN RUN RUN
(chorus)


Lover I've seen you true face
in morning glow
Ive lost my crown
as the heavens rain down below
And I'm
curled at your side
your hands between my thighs
You're in my head
Even though it is screaming to

RUN RUN RUN
(chorus)
(chorus)
Track Name: There's a Wocket in my Pocket
There's a Wocket in My Pocket
And I dont know what to do
Some furry Little Friend
Who moved himself right in
before I knew
He's been here for seven days
and I know he is my guest
but it's hard in the morning
when I want to get dressed
There's a Wocket in my Pocket
and I don't know what to do

There's a Wocket in my Pocket
and I wish he would pay rent
If I had to share a room
I wish there was a little more consent
But when I brought it up to him
he said it was too soon
He said that normal wockets
they don't wake up till noon
There's a wocket in my pocket
and I don't know what to do

There's a Wocket in my pocket
and he's got me seeing red
He's bouncing off the walls at night
when I want to rest my head
I know he doesn't mean it
I know it could be worse
Maybe he'd be quieter
If our roles were reversed
There's a wocket in my pocket
and I don't know what to do

(Instrumental)

There's a wocket in my pocket
but in the morning he was gone
I searched all over town
through the states and to the Amazon
My pocket's gotten cold
and it's pretty lonely
with no wocket I can hold
I wish that someone would've told me
There's no Wocket in my Pocket
Now I don't know what to do
There's no Wocket in my Pocket
Now I don't know what to do
There's no Wocket in my Pocket
Now I don't know what to do
Track Name: Golden One
Robin Blue puts on her prettiest face
Wears a white coat to join in on the rat race
Trips over toy cars at morning escape
curses caught on the tip of her tongue

No one notices
how quiet the house
has become
She thought she was
the golden
one

Hazel Green dreams the hours away
Builds flying machines to leave this place
Spends lonely nights weaving glass and lace
Sleeps with the lights on

No one notices
how quiet the house has become
She thought she was the golden one

Robin Blue lives with the deadbolt drawn
pastes butterflies on the doorway like lambs blood
Hazel Green slips through the cracks
where the shades are broken

No one notices
how quiet the house has become
She thought she was the golden one
Track Name: Martyr
How does it feel
to know you can't heal yourself?
Do you taste blood when
you tread on the ones who help?
I always said I'd dance on your grave
my friend.
Because you always had
such violent intentions.
I always tried
to give you a chance to run,
but you said I was heartless
when you held the gun.

And you pretend you're a martyr
Burning up at the pyre
and when the smoke touches your tongue
you're gonna know you're the one--
the one who
started the fire

You always said
you'd come around clean in the end
and we walk on eggshells
by morning they're broken again
and in spite of everything
you're out there burning
the bridges I've tried to defend
And the slap to my face
keeps us running in circles
all over again

(chorus)

I always said
I'd dance on your grave my friend
because you couldn't keep
a level head
and I got the blame
for the damage you made
but you are the fool going up in the flames--
I tried
to save you
I tried
to save you
I tried
to save you
every time

Chorus
Track Name: Candy Girl
She's made of sugar spice
and all of those nice things
She paints her face with beetle
exoskeletons and wings
She's so sugary
she'll give you cavities.
Oh wont you save a piece
of Candy-Girl for me?

She lured you off
with her sticky treats
Knocked you down and left you
drooling at her feet
Oh I Bet that
she gives you quite a tease
Of wont you save a
piece of Candy Girl for me?

She's made of sugar spice
and all of those nice things
She paints her face with beetle
exoskeletons and wings
She's so sugary
she'll give you cavities.
Oh wont you save a piece
of Candy-Girl for me?

Did you get yourself addicted to her sweets?
Did you get yourself addicted to her sweets?
Well lover come on over
Lover come on over
Lover come on over
let me pull out
all those rotten teeth
Lover come on over
and let me pull out all those rotten teeth

She's made of sugar spice
and all of those nice things
She's got you wound up like
a puppet on a string
And when you've had your fill
I'm begging you please:
Oh wont you save a piece of candy girl
for me?
Oh wont you save a piece of candy girl for me?
Oh won't you save what's left
of candy girl
for me?
Track Name: Body Thief
The sidewalks are cracked
and the People are backwards
waiting in shadows
to take me away.

They talk to themselves
shake their pocket change
wipe the blood from their hands
in back alleyways

The world is a scary place
I shouldn't be
Around every corner
they body thief's waiting for me
The world is a scary place
I shouldn't be
Around every corner
they body thief's waiting for me

The catcalls and glances
the sideways advances
sweet offers from strangers
who seem so nice

They're not so well-meaning
you say they're misleading
If I were alone
they wouldn't think twice

The world is a scary place
I shouldn't be
Around every corner
they body thief's waiting for me
The world is a scary place
I shouldn't be
Around every corner
they body thief's waiting for me

The windows are barred
while you set the alarms
I'll keep to myself
if you guard all the doors
And I'm still alive
when you turn out the lights
locked in your arms
I'm locked in your sights

The world is a scary place
I shouldn't be
Around every corner
they body thief's waiting for me
The world is a scary place
I shouldn't be
Around every corner
they body thief's waiting for me

Are you the one they warned me of
you lured me off to lock me up.
Are you the captor or the king
And am I just some wretched thing
too afraid to run?
