about

Bursting out from the depths of the stormy High Seas
Rose a Lyrical Pirate fond of sailing free
Many strange tales he has gathered ashore
Guitar clenched in one hand and his voice, bearing lore
The trade winds blew in some crooning shanties
And this ere boy bottled those acoustic melodies
Skin etched with pigment, clad in a noose of pure black
The fabled adventures of a one man wolf pack.

Track Name: The Ravine
The Ravine
I know you like the back of my own fists
unpredictable, drowned in bitterness
I'm itching for that day your not inside my head
scratching away the tally above my bed
but they're all so meaningless
without her I broke my promise
All signs directing away
Yet my heart just cant seem stray
Like twisted gears in this old machine
She's laying dormant in the ravine

Still haunting dreams, saw it all again last night
Corner of my mind, head to toe, she's dressed in white
And its the 8th week alive, healing wounds sure take their time
I only had one diamond, forever on her backside
But they're all so meaningless
Without her I broke my promise
I'm dying with a regret
Shes a broken shambles i guess
Like twisted gears in this old machine
She's laying dormant in the ravine

Dealt through storms and bad terrain
Waiting for the calm that never came, we just got rain
Dealt through storms and bad terrain
Waiting for the calm that never came we just got rain

So baby, like twisted gears, in this old machine at the bottom of the ravine
Twisted fears in the face i loved, we'll never know what we're made of

Sweet heart breaker
Carefree worry stealer
Sweet heart breaker
Carefree worry stealer
Track Name: Somewhere Bluebirds Fly (A Good Letter)
So here we are, whats left to say
Some parts were fun but then it wasn't all great
I finished our book with your spite i took
Right now Im just a bit bitter, you used my calm
And came out better, So you grew up after all

I stuck paper to pen, she always liked a good letter
Finger prints to plastics, modern isn't always better
But I think its a start to something
You know Im not too far

With every single pointless argument,
Comes new cracks breaking through our patched up cement
So what can she do with me?
She said don't you ever ever change, don't you dare and try forget me
Most gorgeous girl I've met, too bad it turned to shit

I stuck paper to pen, she always liked a good letter
Finger prints to plastics, modern isn't always better
But I think its a start to something
You know Im not too hard

I stuck paper to pen,
You stole my heart so I stole your words
I stuck paper to pen
You stole my heart bluebird

I stuck paper to pen, she always liked a good letter
Finger prints to plastics, modern isn't always better
But I, I think its a start, to something
You know Im not too hard
You know Im not too hard.
Track Name: Taking A Drive
Jamie found the problem when the light hit her eyes
creeping out the window seemed much better in her mind rest assured she'll possess the strength to spit danger in the face

She took a drive, but she lied all night, must of got it from her mothers side
All she ever needed, was to be the apple in his eyes
All the city lights turning dull, comforting its broken angel
she hung up her ballet shoes, wrapped herself around her pole or 2

She took a drive but she lied all night must of got it from her mothers side
All she ever needed was the love from a fathers eyes

Dub step kicking through her radio.. vibrations rotting through her soul..
drive this roller coaster into a wall, my broken angel
She took a drive but she lied all night, must of got it from her mothers side
All she ever needed was the love from a good guy, a good guy

but she'll never fall for the good guy.
Track Name: Chasing Girls (Feat. Super Becks)
He was bruised and buried
left face down theres no turning back
likely I deserved it all
but my recollection just finds black
how will our hero, get out of this alive?
how will our hero, get out of this alive?

fundamental mishaps, misunderstandings
with communication between the antagonist
Continue to relapse always in trouble
always in trouble from..

chasing girls until the day he dies he's
chasing girls always in trouble from
chasing girls, until the day he dies
will he make it out alive

she was bruised and helpless
damsel on the railway track
likely so unsuspecting
She just wants to find a way back
how will our hero get her out alive?
how will our hero get her out alive?

fundamental mishaps, misunderstandings
with communication between the antagonist
Continue to relapse always in trouble
always in trouble from..

chasing boys until the day she dies
chasing boys always in trouble from
chasing boys until the day she dies
will she make it out alive

hes chasing girls until the day he dies
shes chasing boys until the day she dies
chasing girls chasing boys
Silhouettes in the sunrise

chasing girls always in trouble from
chasing boys until the day she dies
chasing girls chasing boys
will they make it out alive.
Track Name: Animosity
how did i turn my eyes inside out to miss this bad expel
even the blind could see theres always something else
scraps down my insides swallowing my fury
all the damaged pride with mine i buried

one by one you shot them all down
one by one all the chances to the ground
one by one you shot them all down
what goes around, comes around

the true saboteur
its gone too far to mend
one hundred daggers
kept pressed firmly in my sides until my end
falsified agendas of monogamistic
mask of cyanide
advantage struggle made Stace
another case of social homicide

one by one you shot them all down
one by one all the chances to the ground
one by one you shot them all down
what goes around, comes around

this is for you in silence, for you i whisper silent, this is our animosity
this is for you in silence, for you i whisper silent, this is our animosity

one by one you shot them all down
one by one all the chances to the ground
one by one you shot them all down
what goes around, comes around

This is our animosity
Track Name: Novocaine Dreams
The resolutions falling off the tv set behind the wall
She reaches out stretched arms to find that shes just too small
I dont want to be the bearer of the bad news, blank stares curious with all the issues
I'll never find the button to turn on her sunshine
I never looked she said your off the hook

The seeded dreams are peeling scared paint form the wall
She tried the Novocaine to make believe she walks tall

I don't want to be the bearer of the bad news
blank stares curious with the issue
ill never find
the button to turn on her sunshine
i never looked
she said your off the hook

she's asleep and im outside, throwing stones
Im awake if she's alive, into windows
tested, I feel rested
tested, Im so rested

I follow through
I follow through
I followed for you

I don't want to be the bearer of the bad news
blank stares curious with the issue
I'll never find the button to turn on her sunshine
I never looked, she said your off the hook

she's asleep and I'm outside, throwing stones
Im awake if she's alive, into windows
tested, I feel rested
tested, Im so rested

I follow through
I follow through
I followed for you
