Track Name: Hollow Body
I'm wrestling thoughts all in my head
This pain in my chest
Won't leave till I'm dead
This candle's been
Burning on both sides
It's like I'm being televised

You've been hard at work
On this hollow body
With nothing inside
You don't have to be sorry

When I'm alone it's all I see
All these things you've done to me
None of these words
Are meant to hurt
I just think you should know first

You've been hard at work
On this hollow body
With nothing inside
You don't have to be sorry
Track Name: Harden Your Heart
Northwest is where I'm heading
And I hope it's where I'll stay
I've used up all my time
Here in the heat
I've got to pack my things and leave
Walk out the door
I've gotten used
To watching the waters
Until they sweep me away

You've got to harden your heart
The you can make a new start
I will see you on the other side
There will be a light
But it's not for me

I've left all my walls blank
Just in case
You came to fill this space
By the time I could see
This was really me
I just could not believe
I got a taste of what life could be
But then I backslid into me

You've got to harden your heart
Then you can make a new start
I will see you on the other side
There will be a light
But it's not for me
Track Name: South Is South Of All
I'm not a brother
I'm not a son
I was a fool to think there was just one
The floor can be so low
I forget I've been there before

South is south of all
Little boxes in a row

All these things
I feel I did not create
I've spent so much time
Trying to get my thoughts straight
Some feelings emotions
I cannot relate

I'm evolved
I'm not involved
Track Name: Restructured
She couldn't see
I'd become something I couldn't be
But we set apart on this treacherous road
Where I learned to love
But she learned to loath

I wrote some songs
I sang them all night long
But I know now
Nothing can tear me apart
I'm just so glad
She let me
Pick up from the start

Now I can see
That love is just an art
I took a drag
And fell apart
But she finished to the filter
While I sat bewildered
Track Name: Past & Premise
I don't know who I am
Or who I want to be
But nothing's permanent
Please don't forget me

You can't unlearn
What you've been taught

I'll be sold
I'll be loved
I'll be told
I'll be taught all the things I'm not

You can't unthink
What you've thought

All this time I've spent on you
I can honestly say
I don't want your sympathy
I just want you to see

You can't unlearn
What you've been taught
Track Name: Two Ghosts In Paradise
I'm in this trouble loop
From north to south
It's so hard to see
You're blank with lust
And your hollow needs

I know all the back alleys
I know the secret ways
I guess I've been here too long
I guess I knew I'd never stay

Break your screens
Nothing can come
From epiphany tongues
Got to hell
It might be hot
But all is well
All I've known is noises with meaning
A vague description of myself

Your succession
Sealed my regression
My liberation
Was your oppression
Your second plan was so bad
You forgot there was a first

All I ever wanted
Was the sun in my eyes
Then I realized
We were two ghosts in paradise

What's a crutch to a leg
That can work
Just as fine on it's own
I have these sins
That I just won't atone
Cause I don't believe in god
So what can be wrong

All I ever wanted
Was the sun in my eyes
Then I realize
We were two ghosts in paradise
