Track Name: Superknife
My baby's got a Superknife, turning in the wrong direction.
Stove pipe look-alikes always got the wrong intentions.
I took a bus to the subway store, she never gave much, somehow took a little more.
Don't tell me how this story ends, just give me your affection.

Baby's got a Superknife, making me some good connections.
Heads of state and the leaders of third world nations.
I'd give it all away for just one kiss, she never loved me but I'm still gonna miss, still gonna miss, still gonna miss.
I'll miss that Superknife, making me some good connections.

I've been cheated in the wrong hotel.
Can't get to heaven all you give me is hell.
33 pages til you turn your back.
Can't fall asleep until the blade retracts, blade retracts.

There's a Superknife turning me, in the wrong direction.
My head's not straight since she sold me on her new invention.
Give it all away for just one kiss, she never loved me but I'm still gonna miss.
I'll miss that Superknife turning in a new direction.

I'll miss that Superknife, whoa yeah!
I'll miss that Superknife, ugh!
I'll miss that Superknife, whoa yeah!
I'll miss that Superknife, ugh!
Track Name: Fall
When you think you'll ever come back down?
Told you about the summer once, will you come along, and we'll fall.
There's no need to try and go without.
Your heart's the only reason that I wake up at all.

Did you set the fire in my hall?
While searching for a higher place where we can send, from the ground?
'Cause when I look inside I see no doubt...
the message in your bottle's still a mystery to be found.

And it's not real until you want it to be.
Your bright ideas mean nothin' when you're turned around, can't see.
The fallen fingerprints and the heros you left behind.
And just when you think it's safe, another one will come and take his place again. Just when you think it's safe, another one will come and take his place again.

Something's missing in your past, you don't realize, your heart is dying.
I wanna give you what you lost and we'll find the strength to keep on trying, we'll find the strength to keep on trying.

When you think you'll ever come back down?
Told you about the summer once, will you come along, and we'll fall.
Track Name: Bad Arm
I buried your body in the dirty rain, with my bad arm behind my back.
Smoke my cigarets with my toes and my best moonlight shades.
Uncle Billy came down from the frozen ground, said he needed some time to relax.
Told him you bought it at the grocery store, you know I shouldn't...distort the facts.

Ahhhhhhh

You're just a habit.
You're just a habit.
You're just a habit.
But you can't have it the way you want.

It's got nothing to do with the mess you made or the extra weight you put on my springs.
Everybody's got their device, guilty of the same thing.
But maybe it's the curtain, maybe it's the breeze, maybe it's the certain lack of empathy.
But "maybe" is such a dangerous word when you're down on your knees.

Ahhhhhhh
Ahhhhhhh
Ahhhhhhh
Ahhhhhhh

You're just a habit.
You're just a habit.
You're just a habit.
But you can't have it the way you want.
Track Name: Pie Eater Starfish
You used to give me somethin' for nothin'
Only had to be myself without tryin'.
Now I pay the rent just like a working man and your heart I can't even recognize.

Oh no, no, no, no.
Oh no, no, no, no.
Oh no, no, no, no.
Oh nooooooooo.

Tell me not to worry, tell me not to worry!
AAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!
Tell me not to worry! Don't tell me someone's coming!
AAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!
Tell me not to worry, tell me not to worry!
AAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!

Well, you used to give me love without something.
I could hear it every once in a while.
Told you take my laundry to Mr. Roman,
It's not as if you had any choice.

Oh no, no, no, no.
Oh no, no, no, no.
Oh no, no, no, no.
Oh nooooooooo.

Tell me not to worry, tell me not to worry!
AAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!
Tell me not to worry! Don't tell me someone's coming!
AAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!
Tell me not to worry, tell me not to worry!
AAAAAHHHHHHHHHH!
Track Name: Girl
Even your dog,
he doesn't listen,
when your telling the truth.
You sold yourself,
you're so convincing,
your getting two for the tooth.

Cuz you can't stand,
when things are simple,
you got to cut into place.
And now your troubles,
are all my troubles,
but that's the chance that I'll take.

'Cause I still want you to be my girl.
I love the shit your going through.
I still want you to be my girl.
There's nothing that we cannot prove.
I'm gonna give it to you.

I got an axe,
for you to grind it.
It's getting dull on it's own.
You got a chip,
on your shoulder,
it's gonna cut to my bone.

Cuz all your problems
they're all my problems.
I'll take my chances, somehow.
Spoke to you're cat,
she's got the answers.
Just pull the string, I'll be found.

'Cause I still want you to be my girl.
I love the shit your going through.
I still want you to be my girl.
There's nothing that we cannot prove.
I'm gonna give it to you.
Track Name: Wonderland
You are the dearest to my heart.
I always loved you from the start.
And now you’re giving a place above your chin.
I’m finally getting up the strength to let you in.

Ahhhhhh
Ahhhh
Ahhhhhh

You are the nearest to my soul.
And I just had to let you know.
I need to open the doors that can’t be closed.
And if you take my hand, I’ll never let you go.

Ahhhhhh
Ahhhh
Ahhhhhh

And it ain’t easy when there's two of us to bleed.
And the rules of love are changing by degrees.
I want to open doors we cannot see.
Just like dear Alice in that made up fantasy.
Just like dear Alice in that made up fantasy.

You are the nearest to my soul.
And I just had to let you know.
I needed to open the doors that kept me closed.
But if you take my hand, I’ll never let you go.
And if you take my hand, I’ll never let you go.
And if you take my hand, I’ll never let you go.
And if you take my hand, I’ll never let you go.
