Track Name: You Give It Meaning
The call you've been dreading is finally here
So best prepare yourself for something you don't want to see
And every time I see your face when I close my eyes
I know it's over finally
Track Name: Real Life
Even though I know it isn't real
I can't help but think that Hell's the place for me
Cause all my friends are heathens beyond help
So I'd hate to be stuck in Heaven by myself

I've committed that I won't list
Safe to say the gates stay closed for me
But when I die I'll either rot or burn
And live beneath the ground or in an urn

But if after all the science we know is wrong
And superstition should have been our path
At least I'll still have friends and lovers in the end
And we'll burn for eternity together

Even though I know it isn't real
I can't help but think that Hell's the place for me
Cause all my friends are heathens beyond help
So I'd hate to be stuck in Heaven by myself
Track Name: Desperate States
I want you to show me how I'm supposed to be fine
With the hand I've been dealt in this life
I'm crushingly sad and alone in my days
But I never feel love and I never feel pain

Cause my teeth grow loose
My hairs falling out
I'm never thin
My skin's so cracked and sore
My lungs ache
My bones are weak
And I hate myself
I hate myself
I hate myself

So I live in a dream
When I'm awake or asleep

So I build a world
A complex array
A maze of maps
Of lovers and contacts
I live alone
But there's others like me
In desperate states
Where we'll all be alive
And we'll all be well
We look how we wish
We do what we want
And desperate states don't mean anything anymore to me
Track Name: In The Dark
The autumn years arrive for us
We close the blinds and get wrapped up
I think it's almost time for our arrival at the gates
Friends and loved ones gone too soon
Now we join them in the dark
