Track Name: Asphyxia
Welcome to the wasteland.
Close your eyes, take hold of my hand.
I will lead you through the barren streets
where paranoid creatures pray in their sleep.
You and I will make it through this bitter life.
We'll make it through tonight.

For the infomercial gasmask will save us
from the apocalyptic suburbia demise.
For the infomercial gasmask will save us once again.

We are in the waiting room
choking on these methane fumes.
Who will lead me to the gentle rain
that will cleanse me of my toxic pain?

Wash away my pain tonight.
Everything will be alright.

For the infomercial gasmask will save us
from the apocalyptic suburbia demise.
For the infomercial gasmask will save us once again.

"Welcome to the wasteland," my mother said to me.
"Welcome to the wasteland. There's just so much to see.
Welcome to the wasteland, my sweetest baby."

You're a baby now. Just a baby now.
You're a baby now. Just a baby now.
You're a baby now.

Track Name: Ghostdream
It's my birthday. Strange to find you near.
Where have you been hiding? I have been right here.
I feel you when I sleep and see you in my dreams.
Everything is hazy. At least that's what it seems.
Hey, it's my birthday. Hey, it's my birthday.

I have been waiting. Where can you be?
I hear you calling, calling for me.
I have been waiting. Where can you be?
I hear you calling but I can't see.

Your writing makes it clear. You're only halfway here.
With one foot out the door, you leave me wanting more.
I know you cannot stay so I turn to run away.
You reach out your hand. Now I understand.
Hey, it's my birthday. Hey, it's my birthday.

I have been dreaming. What did you say?
Your voice is fading so far away.
I have been dreaming. What did you say?
Your voice is fading. I've lost my way.

Oh, I can feel you when I sleep.
Oh, I can see you in my dreams.
How will you find me when I awake?
Morning is coming. Wish you could stay.

Track Name: Avalon
Some men are born to fight.
Others are born to breed.
You prefer to hide in Avalon, Avalon.

I almost taste your lips.
Senses can be wasted.
You're withering away in Avalon, Avalon.

You can't. You can't. I know, you can't.
You are the brightest around the edges.
You can't. You can't. I know, you can't.

Fortunes are easy to make.
Good luck making plans.
Your secret's safe with me in Avalon, Avalon.

Track Name: Confessions to the Undertaker
I'm searching the graveyard for a soul like my own
and luring the spirits to break free from their stone.
I'm searching the graveyard for a soul like my own.
Only the undertaker knows.

I'm dancing in circles beneath the cemetery sky
and praying for moonlight to allow your soul to fly.
I'm dancing in circles beneath the cemetery sky.
All of the angels pass on by.

And it seems like all the fog is floating through
a witch's heart, a cauldrons brew.
And I never knew that life could feel this true
until I met the ghost of you.

So, I'll keep searching the graveyard for a soul like my own
and luring the spirits to break free from their stone.
I'm searching the graveyard for a soul like my own.
Only the undertaker knows. Only the undertaker knows.
Only the undertaker knows.

Track Name: Elegy
Hey little sister, come out and play.
You look so peaceful. Why don't you stay?
I guess I should have known that he'd come for you.
I guess I'm all alone and he'll find me too.

Hey little dreamer, lay down your head.
You can rest now. It's time for bed.
Your blanket keeps you safe. The piano chimes.
I kiss your dearest face for the final time.

Hey little darling, we grew so old.
You're in the window of my soul.
The sun begins to set as you leave the room.
Your tiny footsteps will guide me soon.

Oh, I will see you soon. Oh, I will see you soon.

Oh, my little girl, we will never ever die.
Oh, we'll live forever, little girl, you and I.
Oh, little girl, we will never say good-bye.
Oh, we'll live forever, little girl, you and I.

Hey little sister, come out and play.
You look so peaceful. Why don't you stay?

Track Name: Ordinary Deity
So, you think I'm in desperate need of therapy
and it's your right to diagnose me.
Well, I'll have you know boy, this whole world is insane.
That includes you and your vanity campaign.

I never thought you would stop believing
in the girl who guided you.
And I never dreamed you would ever deceive me.
Who are you?

Who are you? It's about time that I knew.
Who are you? I'll tell you.

You're such a gemini. I've been a fool.
Don't feed me an alibi I'll have to overrule.
You said you'd be there when my black hair turns gray.
Now there is nothing more you could say.

Don't say a word now. Don't say a word.
Don't you say a word boy. Don't you say a word.

So, you think I'm in desperate need of therapy.
Looks like good-bye will be my perfect remedy.

Good-bye. Good-bye. Good-bye. Good-bye.

Little girl, he's gonna break your heart.
Little girl, he will break your heart.
Little girl, he's gonna break your heart.
Little girl, he will break your heart.

Track Name: Big Box, little box
Apathetic baby, let's check ourselves in.
We're both a little crazy and lost in our skin.
It would be so lovely to lose ourselves now.
Just meet me 'round the corner from my halfway house.

If you could tell the voices
in your head there's nothing wrong,
we would talk for hours
in our sleep all night long.
We would talk all night long again.

Lists on yellow paper are saving the world,
at least for a crazy boy and his girl.
Helicopter nightmares invading our bed,
they cause chemical reactions in your sleepy head.

If you could tell the voices
in your head there's nothing wrong,
we would talk for hours
in our sleep all night long.

Throw out your medicine. Love's all you need.
I'll never harm you boy. You're safe with me.

If you could tell the voices
in your head there's nothing wrong,
we would talk for hours
in our sleep all night long.

In our little twister, oh, we, we whirl around.
Floating here beside you, I am never coming down.
I am never coming down again.

Apathetic baby, let's check ourselves in.
We're both a little crazy and lost in our spin.

Track Name: Stigma
Infect me with your disease.
Wounds so obscene will never scrub clean.
Poison me with treachery.
Oh, how I plead for immunity.

Will you still be my lover in these contagious times?
How intimate. Tag, you're it.

And all that we need is a scapegoat,
Someone to blame for these burning flames.
I'd take a ride in your lifeboat
if you could see through all of my shame.

Ruin me like I'm seventeen-
Youth in exchange for my quarantine.
Mangle me for eternity.
Oh, I'm in need of your sympathy.

All that we need is a scapegoat,
Someone to blame for these burning flames.
I'd take a ride in your lifeboat, boy,
if you could see through all of my shame.

Will you still be my lover in this contemptuous life?
Now I pronounce you man and wife.

All that we need is a scapegoat,
Someone to blame for these burning flames.
I'd take a ride in your lifeboat
if you could see through all of my shame.

Just like a child, I want to be free.
No longer plagued by impurity.
Just like a child, I want to be wise
and view the world through immaculate eyes.
Track Name: Swingset
I am waiting for the end
on a swingset with my friend.
Let's swim through the stars.
We are floating very high
in an ocean current sky.
Let's swim through the stars.

We have been waiting for our time to slip away.
Beautiful angel, we are alive today.

We are starting to drown
as the waves are crashing down.
Hold onto my hand.
It is wonderful to be
part of man's final history.
Hold onto my hand.

We have been waiting for our time to slip away.
Beautiful angel, we are alive today.

Ooh, We have truly lived a lie.
Ooh, Feel the pessimistic sky.
Ooh, I'm so glad you're by my side.
Ooh, It's now our time to shine.

I can't breathe, I can't see.
Sweetest angel, stay with me.
I can't breathe, I can't see.
Sweetest angel, stay with me.

Stay, stay with me. Stay, stay with me.
Stay, stay with me. Stay, stay with me.

I am waiting for the end
on a swingset with my friend
and it's clear it's time to go home.

Track Name: Lady X
I was walking in your garden
and your roses told me your secret.
They said beauty still thrives
and that you kept them alive.

Did you find your land of sunshine
when you left your flowers behind?
Because they say that day everything changed.
Everything changed.

How could you leave your daughter?
She's your little girl.
Your rose is beautiful alone in the world.
How could you leave your daughter?
You have the same eyes.
Your pain is over but you left some behind.

I was looking in your closet
and your angels told me your reasons.
They said you tried but the pain grew inside.

Did you find your home built of diamonds?
Would you do it over again?
Because I say today nothing's the same.
Nothing's the same.

How could you leave your daughter?
She's your little girl.
Your rose is beautiful alone in the world.
How could you leave your daughter?
You have the same eyes.
Your pain is over but you left some behind.
Oh, you left us behind.

Track Name: Last Lullaby
I hear the sound of the sky falling down.
How in the world can this be?
I'm lost and found with my feet glued to the ground.
Why, oh why, can't I breathe? I can't breathe.

There is nothing to fear, though the end is so near.
Hush, don't you weep. Try to get some sleep.

You float so high like a spark in the sky.
Who in the world can you be?
Oh, my friend, will I see you again?
Why, oh why, must I dream? Must I dream?

There is nothing to fear, though the end is so near.
Hush, don't you weep. Try to get some sleep.
There is nothing to fear, though the end is so near.
Hush, don't you weep. Try to get some sleep.
