Track Name: Stained
Words:
I've watched you leave with him in my head, every night since the day you left
I've felt you buried in-side my skin, like a tick that I can't seem to shed
And I feel a vacancy
In every part of me
And now I'm rotting away
And why did you tell me who you left me for?
And why did you curse me with your burden?
It should only be yours
I hope you're happier in his arms and that you've found what you lacked in our rut
I hope his features are better to watch, and you can finally leave your eyes open when you're making love
And I made the same mistake
Not making your heart break
And now you're leaving, while I wait
And I'm shaking...And I'm shaking...
And why did you tell me who you left me for?
Why did you curse me with your burden?
It should only be yours
And why did you leave me with your cuts while I'm in pain?
And why did you leave me to the dust then make it rain?
Maybe I'm stained
Maybe I'm stained
And I'm shaking...I'm shaking
And why did you tell me who you left me for?
Why did you curse me with your burden?
It should only be yours
And why did you leave me with your cuts while I'm in pain?
And why did you leave me to the dust then make it rain?
Maybe I'm stained
Maybe I'm stained
Maybe I'm stained...
Track Name: Save Her
Words:
she's still a beauty when she cries
with every fallen leaf,
another STREAM RUNS DRY
(and oo) she ain't got no flaws
(and oo) she's a work of art
what a perfect system be
what a precious gift is she
JUST A SEED of all her worth
with mountains left to learn
SO PLEASE SAVE HER
PLEASE SAVE HER
she's got a body with a perfect form
and when it all moves together,
she can SETTLE THE STORM
(and oo) she's a grand design
but we cut right through,
HER BLOOD RUNS DRY
what a mess of perfect SOIL
what a waste of her precious DROPS
rat raced and OVERWORKED
she's tiring out her turn
SO PLEASE SAVE HER
PLEASE SAVE HER
won't you SAVE HER, won't you SAVE HER?
SAVE HER SAVE HER
won't you SAVE HER, won't you SAVE HER?
SAVE HER SAVE HER
make love to her, love to her
she needs some tender touch
move at her pace, SLOW DOWN THE RUSH
can't love her too much
she's DROWNING (and we can SAVE HER)
DROWNING (we can SAVE HER)
cause all we'll ever need
she's offering...
SO PLEASE SAVE HER
PLEASE SAVE HER
PLEASE SAVE HER
PLEASE SAVE HER...
Track Name: Spectrum (feat. Jo Lampert & Gyasi Ross)
Words:
Where do YOU fall on the spectrum of sexuality? of sexuality?
Where do YOU fall on the spectrum of sexuality? of sexuality?
and i can truly swear that
every love I share is a real thing
yeah man it's a good thing
and it's buried deep, it's a part of me
it's a true thing; it's inside of me
everyone loves someone regardless of their gender,
so why would you think there's some agenda?
everyone loves a man and woman somewhere,
so why would you think there's nothing there?
Where do YOU fall on the spectrum of sexuality? of sexuality?
Where do YOU fall on the spectrum of sexuality? of sexuality?
what in nature moves linearly?
planets and seasons move circularly
what in nature is really black and white?
flowers and twilight share every shade of light
every man loves a man; every woman loves a woman,
so why would you think that love's inhuman?
every life wants to love and wants love in return,
so why would you want that love to burn?
Where do YOU fall on the spectrum of sexuality? of sexuality?
Where do YOU fall on the spectrum of sexuality? of sexuality?
love is a gift from the powers on high
it gets rid of pain when you can’t get by
and when you're facing terror,
you're scared for your life
love is something greater that can make it right
and it’s a colder world if you can’t love you want
take it from yourself to choose your love
no I don't want to see the same old script
it's like every child’s taught to be the same old kid
I like to think of my god as an artist
who'd paint me with a pallet of multi-chromomatics
so let’s systematically remove the dogma
there's more than two ways you can reach a climax
and on the spectrum of your sexuality
let's find respect for individuality
this train’s a comin’ like it was in the 60’s
so hop on the scale and we’ll weigh ya like Kinsey
Where do YOU fall on the spectrum of sexuality? of sexuality?
Where do YOU fall on the spectrum of sexuality? of sexuality?
Where do YOU fall on the spectrum of sexuality? of sexuality?
Where do YOU fall on the spectrum of sexuality? of sexuality?

Track Name: Start Over (feat. Julia Harriman)
Words:
Could we take this baggage off?
It's like a bag of bricks attached to my legs as I walk
And I know this has all been harder for you
But you have no idea
You have no idea
Can we start over, over?
Can we start over, over?
Can we...start over?
I didn't mean to hurt you
I just didn't want to lose you
And when I reached to grab you
I pushed you even more
It's been burning too long
And the candle's run down
But if we clean all the wax out
Maybe you'd fall for me now?
Can we start over, over?
Can we start over, over?
Can we start over, over?
Rewind the heart and start...start over?
You've made some mistakes
Said too much in the past
So I dragged you on a chain
And moved too fast
I'm sorry for the silence
I just didn't have the words
But now I'm ready for my turn
Could we take this bandage off?
It's stuck to my skin, but the wound has healed up
And I know this all has all been harder for you
And I have no idea
I have no idea
Can we start over?
Can we start over?
Can we start over?
Rewind the heart and start...start over?
Rewind the heart and start over ?
(Could we take this off and start--)
Maybe we could try as normal
Maybe we could start all over
Maybe we could put the past down
Maybe we could start it now
Can we start over?
Can we start over?
Can we start over?
Rewind the heart and start...start over?
(Could we take this off and start over?)
Rewind the heart and start...start over?
(Could we take this off and start over?)
