Track Name: Dude Sick Ollie (Big Air early version)
I went out to go dance at the punk show
the kids were convulsing and I started screaming
scrapes and scars used to run up my elbows
and I had a skateboard and I always felt bored

they say drugs bring you closer to heaven
I don't mind the slushies at 711
sprayed a wall with paint just to impress you
but it's painted over now that I've turned blue
Track Name: Human Beings
god made flesh
and it rips and it tares and it falls off the bone
to the floor of my home

god made me
and I will die all alone
in this place I've never known

god made you
and I play to god that isn't true
but it's true and so are you
Track Name: The Process Of Letting Go
snip a vein and let your bloodline flow
bury your body down into the snow
burn your keepsakes till there's nothing left
this is the process of letting go

cross a tightrope with your ankles tied
steal a car and take it for a joy ride
if they say I'm crazy I'll say no
this is the process of letting go

shoot your daddy with a big black gun
throw broken glass at friends just for fun
all I'll tell them when I'm down below
this is the process of letting go
Track Name: By The Time This Song Is Over I Will Have Left The Room
something so beautiful as you cannot be real
stupid
stupid
well that's just how I feel

I need spring to live
I need winter to die
I need hearts to grow
I need eyes to cry
please write me better words to say
if it means that I wont have to say goodbye

they told me it would all be worth it
to leave behind the only thing that I loved
to walk a line through crowds of strangers
its true when they said that push would come to shove

I need spring to live
I need winter to die
I need hearts to grow
I need eyes to cry
please write me better songs to sing
if it means that I wont have to say goodbye
Track Name: Tombz
I grew up in a six foot hole I scraped oceans in the dirt
by the time I crawled out for air I only found an ugly world of hurt
so by then I crawled back again and sank deep beneath my fear
I was home where the flowers grow
I was glad to die here
I'm glad to die here

I awoke with a sudden shock my heart leaped across the room
grabbing hold of an innocence that never had its chance to bloom
the first mistake that I ever made was trying to make you stay
I grew tired of these dying days
so I stood up and walked away
I walked away
Track Name: The Bird Song
where do birds go when they go to die
I saw a dead bird yesterday
frozen solid in my driveway
stupid faces smile
they break the thin ice for no reason
a wound cured over fades in season

but nothing heals in time
relationships are made for dealing
I watched the pain peel from your ceiling
I promised you Id try
but I can never stay in one place
to wipe the tears that run down your face
