Track Name: Shallow Grave
This is the end, my darling
We made it here together
All the choices that we made
We built our bed
And in that bed we’ll stay
Together
Together

I’m standing outside of a liquor store
Wondering whether or not I should go in
Your lights are on
I know you’re home
But you’re not alone
Are you, darling?

I’m six fingers in
And I can’t see
The red in my eyes is blinding me
I thought I could handle this jealousy
But next thing I knew she was six feet deep

What have I done?

I buried your lover in a shallow grave
I buried my problems
And with them she went

In a shallow grave
We stay together
We stay together
We stay together

This is the end, my darling
We made it here together
All the choices that we made
We will stay
We will stay
Together in a shallow grave
In a shallow grave

We stay together
We stay together
We stay together
In a shallow grave
Track Name: Dream Demons
I’ve heard it said
The nights are darkest before the dawn
Dream demons dance
Behind closed eyes
White shining knights are in short supply

My future is hazier
My days grow lazier
As I age
But that’s ok
I was never the life of the party anyway

Embrace the gray
Between black and white
Lie happy days
But don’t take my advice
‘Cause I’m spitting lies
The ones I tell myself to keep from crying

My future is hazier
My days grow lazier
As I age
But that’s ok
I was never the life of the party anyway

Yeah, that’s ok
I’ll let it all slip away
Like I do my dream demons every day
As I wake
Don’t be afraid
Don’t be afraid
I’m here
Track Name: Vices
You see me sitting at the bar alone
Assume I’m open to be taken home
Unzip my dress with both your eyes
Slip your left hand up my right thigh

You seem so charming what could go wrong?
I’m feeling vulnerable, so I take you on
We pay the tab and go to your car
I think we’re flying, we’re driving so far

Standing there smiling
Feet on the ground
You hold me under
And you watch me drown
Feeling sick power
As you bleed me dry
You feel elation
As life leaves my eyes

You view my body prostrate on the ground
Human marionette, made with rope you used to tie me down
You are a killer
Wouldn’t mom be proud?
My life is over
So what are you going to do to me now?

Standing there smiling
Feet on the ground
You hold me under
And you watch me drown
Feeling sick power
As you bleed me dry
You feel elation
As life leaves my eyes

You are a killer
Now don’t you see
You can’t play the victim
Or blame this on me

You are a murderer
Fulfilled your dream
You made me nothing
So stop haunting me
Or I’ll haunt your dreams
I’ll haunt your dreams
Track Name: Your Love is Killing Me
I wasn't blind
but you made it hard to see
you're a toxic imposition
yeah, your love is killing me

You take what you want
and you never give back
Your heart was wrong
You wronged me
Now I'll wrong you back

Whoa

Darling, hold on
We're waiting to begin
What we thought was heaven
Turned out to be a sin

Wake up now
Lord knows it's just a dream
No, I wasn't lying
When I said your love is killing me

Whoa

Loveless nights
We watched it fall apart
Get yourself together
You'll never break my heart

Now I see
The veil is finally gone
You're nothing but trouble
So I'll be moving on

Whoa
I wasn't blind
But you made it hard
you're a toxic imposition
yeah, your love is killing me
whoa
Track Name: Saturday Night (Misfits Cover)
There's 52 ways to murder anyone
One or two are the same,
And they both work as well
I'm coming clean for Amy,
Julie doesn't scream as well
And the cops won't listen all night
And so maybe, maybe I'll be over
Just as soon as I fill them all in

And I can remember when I saw her last
We were running all around and having a blast
But the back seat of the drive-in
Is so lonely without you
I know when you're home
I was thinking about you,
There was was something I forgot to say
I was crying on a Saturday night
I was out cruising without you,
They were playing our song
Crying on Saturday night

As the moon becomes the night time
You go viciously, quietly away
I'm sitting in the bedroom,
Where we used to sit and smoke cigarettes
Now I'm watching, watching you die

I can remember when I saw her last
We were running all around and having a blast
But the back seat of the drive-in
Is so lonely without you
I know when you're home
I was thinking about you,
There was was something I forgot to say
I was crying on a Saturday night
I was out cruising without you,
They were playing our song
Crying on Saturday night
