Track Name: Sweater Scent
(Strum strum strum strum)

Nothing smells as sweet as this sweater that smells sweet as you.
Nothing shows as radiant as your smile that shines as bright as you. Nothing moves your eyes the way that you move mine
And when they see us,
I know they see trust,
and the cutest two you can combine.

Baby, I'm still waiting for you.
And baby, I'm still missing on you.
And sweets, I know I can't do a lot,
I know I can't say a lot.
But what I know I can do is say,
I really really love you.

You gave me your sweater in hopes that the weather,
Through your scent, would change in my mind.
I didn't know what I'd run into, but I knew all along what I would find.
You knew with, your sweater scent, I could not forget you all this time,
And every time you wear my sweater,
I hope you're smelling mine.

Baby, I'm still waiting for you.
And baby, I'm still missing on you.
And sweets, I know I can't do a lot,
I know I can't say a lot.
But what I know I can do is say,
I really really love you.

Hey beautiful girl with a beautiful heart,
(nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah nah...)
Just know that it's not me to be very far,
(for very long, yeah).
I'll be stopping by places where I hope that you'll see me.
(Oh woahhoahoahhhh)
Our truth is hard, but you know where I'll be...
(Where I'll beeeeeeeeeeeee)

Oh, I'm still waiting for you...
Oh, I'm still missing on you.
And sweets, I know I can't do a lot,
I know I can't say a lot.
But what I know I can do is say,
I really really love you.

Oh nooo oh oh oh oh ohhh woah oh oh oh oh.
ohhhh etc. etc. etc.

I really really love you.
Track Name: Addiction Without You
*Snap, snap snap*
*Cool guitar solo!*
*Quiet down...*
*ka-bam!*

Craving after craving, after sweating after fretting,
I'm still burning for your warm-hearted freeze.
Feeling manic from this panic, gotta make my eyes stop searching,
You're my only hope to make them cease.
Yeah I'm sitting in this corner trying to hold my ears together feeling anything but sane.
Gotta make myself an ark, yeah I'm going to embark, destination from this pouring rain

Just to find the truth,
Just to find a clue,
But I'm so confused
And I've got no excuse...

Please tell me:
What's an addiction without you?
I'm salivating over your toxic perfume.
So tell me, what is an addict supposed to do?
What is an addict supposed to do?

Claps of thunder going through my hair as I
Wonder where you are and if you're there
In this inhumane society pushing through quietly
Though I know you're screaming silently.
And what am I doing falling through this hourglass
Soon to sink, on the brink without a standstill to think?
I'm just one grain of sand on this boundless beach,
Just one star falling down through your atmosphere

Oh, I'll find the truth
Of me and you,
So I can escape this glue,
Concrete pain-withdrawal to break through.

Please tell me:
What's an addiction without you?
I'm salivating over your toxic perfume.
So tell me, what is an addict supposed to do?
What is an addict supposed to do?

Yeah you're my exodus,
How could they make me exit us?
I was your Tower of Babel
My foundation's sinking in the gravel gravel...

When his fix is gone he's gotta hold it together,
Fix his heart before he's out of hers forever,
Still I can't learn to live my life away from you.

What's an addiction without you?
(*Beyonce riffs*)

What is an addict supposed to do?
What's an addiction without you..

(*emotional ooh's*)
Track Name: Mutant Theory
Infected
Collected
Radiation from your light.

Somehow it's
A million
Cells mutated changing imperceptibly.

Perception
Blurred vision
Oblivious to what went wrong.

Enslaved by
Erratic Gene mutation

And I feel

Corruption of all my mania.
Repression of insomnia...

Delude my memories, change all my fears
From that destructive love that turned into tears.
So just a blood-transfusion is all I need
To change these mutant theories into mutant-free.

Injustice
It's just as passionate as it's completely wrong.

Admission
Imprison me until I'm well

Because it's

This freedom
This excess care and knowledge clashing between me and you.

These theories
Are mutants
But they truly

Are just

Camouflage
Just masking up the truth.
And I just
I simply can't refute

That
You

Delude my memories, change all my fears
From that deductive reason that made me steer clear.
So just a blood transfusion is all I need
To change these mutant theories into mutant-free.

(Instrumental)

Used to be
Same old, good as gold,
'till a back-breaking hit paralyzed my soul.
ER containment, 'cause I can't contain it
Just know I hate it, 'cause it's all the same shit.
You don't hesitate to operate
Just when this hospital bed was getting lame.
Screwdriver surgery, McGyver circuitry,
Repair, release, but then repeat.

Help me up but don't criticize me.
Stitch me up but don't Frankenstein me.
Electrify but don't defy me.
Bring me to life, but this time try me.
Make me Plan A don't trigger Plan B.
Give a hand but don't Edward Scizzorhands me.
If you need to cut me don't cut too deep, do what you must.
Just know there's no need.


Just delude my memories, change all my fears
From that destructive love that turned into tears.
So just a blood transfusion is all I need
To change these mutant theories into mutant-free.
Track Name: What It's Like
Your sailor shell
A hardened hell
Can't pull the shell but I can pull you from hell.

A lighthouse boat
A buoyed float
Just keep the light in view so I appear close.

The weighted drift
On a raft-like ship
The seas of storm they pull you out and in.

The voyage sting
Separation cling
Remember remembering can be a stupid thing.

But I know you;
Tears of the ocean is all they are.
The storm may be close but:

Hey there, old soul, child's heart,
You've got a teenage mind to balance the tide.
Boom splash, waves crash and tear apart.
Not to worry, friend, I know what it's like.

You take it in
The ocean spin
The misty saltiness of the sea and wind.

But the storm clouds approach
A darkness dome
And to the open isolation you're giving in.

But I know you;
Tears of the ocean is all they are.
The storm may be close but:

Hey there, old soul, child's heart,
You've got a teenage mind to balance the tide.
Boom splash, waves crash and tear apart.
Not to worry, friend, I know what it's like.

(Instrumental)

Hey there, old soul, child's heart,
You've got a teenage mind to balance the tide.
Boom splash, waves crash and tear apart.
Not to worry, friend, I know what it's like.
Track Name: Christmas Chill
Oh the fireplace is warm
Still the frost outside will bite the bone more.
Carollers singing "Baby Jesus",
Wreaths and ribbons blowing in the cold breezes.
Oh Son of God send out a star,
A girl is taking me away from where you are.

'Cause I heard that when the snowflakes start falling,
People start falling too.
And I hope that out of all of those snowflakes,
The one that falls for me is you.

Seems like all the winging angels have got a beauty that's entangled in their psalms.
Still when you burst out into anthem you leave my heart, but not quite yours, where they belong.
Can't seem to fall on divine beauty but you may just be my one anomaly.

'Cause I heard that when those carols start calling,
Angels start calling too.
I know that if my guardian angels hear me,
They'll call to me and you.

Still I can't seem to catch a glimpse of those wings;
The only angel I hear singing is the lady that I'm losing my heart to.

This holiday season there is a frigidness in the warmth of all this festive cheer.
I can't say for sure my spirit will shine for a feel it's gone astray.
You always bring it home I need it back in time for Christmas Day.

I see those snowflakes they're all a-falling,
All when I'm falling for you.
And I'm hoping along with all of those snowflakes
You'll be the one falling for - falling for me too.

I hope that when the snowflakes start falling
people start falling too.
And I hope that out of al of those snowflakes,
The one that falls for me is you.

Just let that
Be under the tree
It'll set me free.
This void inside, you know,

It's a stocking only you can fill
Please take away this burning Christmas chill.
