Track Name: same cloth
Why you gotta be so down like that?
Why you gotta run around like that?
Why you gotta run your mouth like that?
You go so south y'know.

Why you gotta look so fine like that?
Why you gotta taste divine like that?
Every time we get close enough to touch
I know we're cut from the same cloth.

You and me, we look like we were cut from the same cloth.
Don't you see - I may just be a stranger - but we're cut from the same cloth?

Why you gotta have a head like that?
Why you gotta drop so dead like that?
Why you gotta be so bred to act
like you don't care at all?

Why you gotta have such a good core
Like the silhouette of a an open door
There's something about you
that reminds me of more -
We're cut from the same cloth.

If i never let it all out somewhere, where do you think it will go?
Do you just think it'll just stay there if i never let it all out?
Track Name: dust mite
I never know what to say, except:
"Let me let a little bit of love inside your trap."
Lift me up and give me some of your love right back.

A lake at spring, half-frozen over,
Neither hard nor fluid, but definitely water.
And I'm definitely thirsty - i hide behind my hunger
until it turns into anger.

Here it's dangerous for people who want to be the same,
So I twist like a fire in the face of change,
I twitch like a mouse starving so it eats the poison,
And I get deranged, here.

I never know what to say, except:
"Let me be your cocoon, you can open me up right,
I can be your bug; i can be your bug, June."
The may beetles come out to fly.

A man-made forest - Dad paid a lot to raise me,
Both natural and imported - either way someone had to save me,
You're all the spaces in between, i ask so often for your help,
like it'll right my health

Here it's dangerous for people who want to be the same,
So I twist like a fire in the face of change,
I twitch like a mouse starving so it eats the poison,
And I get deranged, here.

Boy, you leave me speechless,
like a dust mite in the mattress
I never know what to say, except:
"Let me let a little bit of love inside your trap."

Recently, I found out I was blinded. People don't tend to monologue in private. I make fear so close and easy like a brother. Turn to filth for days, i'll stay under the cover (under the sheet). Like a dust mite in the mattress, yeah.
Track Name: eat my life away
Maybe I don't quite know the virtue that you are.
Maybe that is helpful,
Maybe i'm just subpar when I begin to compare you to anything that could be something other than human.

Maybe i don't want you to be a human, boy.
I don't like the humans, and i don't want to be destroyed.
When i say i'm human, I admit I will die, and I do not want to die human.

All i want to do is give my life over to my soul.
All i want to do is work my life away till I'm no more.
All i want to do is eat my life away.

If i just work harder than you'll learn my name.
I'll be in your head like it was always that way.
Maybe you will question all your actions from that day, like i did when i met you.

All i want to do is give my life over to my soul.
All i want to do is work my life away till I'm no more.
All i want to do is eat my life away.

Because it hurts and it hurts more when i don't see you.
You think i can't handle the cold, shaming, deep truth that it's not really a problem - that i make my life of them.
Well, i just won't hang around you anymore.

All i want to do is give my life over to my soul.
All i want to do is work my life away till I'm no more.
Track Name: moebius strip
You move me to tears and remind me of my loneliness just by your appearance.
You look like gold, but you taste and complete me like water.

You pursued me and I thought little of it. Barely did I trip.
Oh, how you threw me for a loop like a moebius strip.

You are smart and live with an air like a complex perfume - to know you is to wear you.
You effect where you've been, you're a scent that was made by a
master.

You pursued me and I thought little of it. Barely did I trip.
Oh, how you threw me for a loop like a moebius strip.

Infinity: your image.
Impressed on me: your mind and your conversation.
Track Name: it never is enough
There's a patch of grass where I want to be, outside of your bungalow.

There's a deafening sound that once you heard, come from deep down in your soul, and I can hear it now.

You and I, we look like time will never make us stop.
Don't you cry, it is all right 'cause once it starts it never is enough.

There's a hard jolt that wakes me up, mid-sleep like a requiem.


You and I, we look like time will never make us stop.
Don't you cry, it is all right 'cause once it starts it never is enough.
We're cut from the same cloth.

Why you gotta have such a heavy heart?
Why you gotta tear my life apart?
Why you gotta look like you could be part of everything I love?

You're just an image going around in my head, mid-sleep like a requiem.

You and me, we look like we were cut from the same cloth.
Don't you see - I may just be a stranger - but we're cut from the same cloth?
Track Name: quality time
Baby, do you want to spend some time with me - some quality time?
Baby, do you want to spend some time with me?
it's as much as yours as it is mine.
If you want to go ahead and to lie to me, i'll say that I'm fine.
Baby, do you want to spend some time with me - some quality time?

This part always made me laugh,
I always save the best for last, and i never spare a single soul.
I don't think about what comes,
I always live like someone's humming in my ear.

It doesn't matter what you think, you're just the water I'm the sink -
How onward and cold you flow.
I don't care about your crumbs, they only ever bled my gums whenever i would stoop that low.

Baby, do you want to spend some time with me - some quality time?
Baby, do you want to spend some time with me?
it's as much as yours as it is mine.
If you want to go ahead and to lie to me, i'll say that I'm fine.
Baby, do you want to spend some time with me - some quality time?

I never want to be alone.
I feel like I should not be home, so I keep my coat on and say I'm cold.

It's a rule of thumb if you can't be bothered at all to put down your foot!
(So put down your foot! Just put down your foot.)

Baby, do you want to spend some time with me - some quality time?
Baby, do you want to spend some time with me?
It's as much as yours as it is mine.
If you want to go ahead and to lie to me, i'll say that I'm fine.
Baby, do you want to spend some time with me - some quality time?
