Track Name: Chasing Dragon Tails
Now it's glaring past the bar
To see the smoke blowing from the back
You ask yourself is that really true
Nicotine or worse, chemical warfare for you

As it came back inside
It asked about the last time

You killed me so many times
Now I'm coming back for the last time

Told it about your new career
How it interlinked with profound fear
Of employment in the credit age
Got a car, caused a crash, still nowhere near

Dragon stops to take a breath
Puts claws over your mouth

You killed me so many times
Now I'm coming back for the last time

They saw one another
Puts bets on when they'd falter
Mutter about depression
Keep dreams in regression

You're back where you began
Smoking, spluttering, I understand
You killed me so many times
Now I'm coming back for the last time

You killed me so many times
Now I'm coming back for the last time
Just like all of those other times
Track Name: Sweet Silence
Stride past the last, ethereal wannabes
Their intellect fell, with minute honesty
Scars down this chest, hid what's left
3 slashes, 3 thoughts, 3 last breaths

There's always one way out
Take me there
There's always one way out
Sweet silence

Bit down past the damaged artery
No one asks about, the darkest parts
Where have you been, what have you seen
Will it impress me, make me scream

There's always one way out
Take me there
There's always one way out
Sweet silence

I gave you all that was left
Every unblemished part
I took what I had to make you
Lock me down as yours
You hung me out
To find my worth
Unwashed and unfazed
And drowned on your shores

There's always one way out
Take me there
There's always one way out
Sweet silence

It sings from your eyes
Sweet suicide
It sings from your eyes
Noble rhymes
It sings from your eyes
Sweet suicide
It sings from your eyes
Sweet silence
Track Name: I Smile
Been burning down for days
The touch left astray
No one's here any more
Too tiring so they ignore
Lost feeling nerves
Tingling shots do disturb

You'll live for another day

So smile, for us
It never went away
Pain turns to traumatize
They'll listen, with glassy eyes

You'll die tomorrow
But chronic pain ain't that bad

So smile, for us
They all went away
I cried out in sleep
And crept underneath

The numbness, now I focus
The days pass by, nauseous
I smile, all for you
I'm dying, no denying

I change it all up
Ignore the connections
My feelings all drugged up
I'm numb but not enough

To smile

For you
Track Name: Fearless Western
First lesson
Never pick a fight with someone with less to lose
Because you see
They'll fight back, they won't ever die

Like a fearless western
Believe you're ready for me
Like a fearless western
You will cease to be

Now you know the stakes
Look back through my tired face
You're my friend, my enemy
Just like that awful magazine
Is it blade or is it bleach, soaked in my drink, not down the sink
I'm too tired, I'll drink it down, I'll never frown

Like a fearless western
I will pass right out, the film reel
Like a fearless western
Ennio Morricone scores the reveal

Kill yourself
And never anybody else
Kill yourself
Kill yourself

Because I'm too tired
But I gurgle and laugh for you
And you're startled and so scared
I'm alive and next to you
