Track Name: I Just Wanna Die in my Sleep Tonight
Darlin' I just wanna die in my sleep tonight
With my lovers legs enveloping me, alright
Every morning I wake up to the bleeding light
Darlin' I just wanna die in my sleep tonight

Don't leave me alone very long
I'm a hazard on the shelf and it won't be long
I'll tip over the edge and break apart on the marble floor
Track Name: We Chase the American Dream
We walk with our heads high
Following sites we can't see
We talk with our mouths closed
We chase the American dream

He steps out the front door and strides down the staircase
Straightens his bow tie, masking his loneliest face
Glides down the street, man stop using your feet
there's places to go, and plenty of thoughts to be seen
And dream

We walk with our heads high
Following sites we can't see
We talk with our mouths closed
We chase the American dream

I'm locked in the room hearing knocks from my fears
While the doorbell is ringing, haunting the ghost of my years
Chased down the alley by thoughts I had long ago
They left me a child who is wondering where to go dream
Oh dream

We walk with our heads high
We chase the American Dream
Track Name: Brothers' Goodbyes
Riding along
On the bicycle trail
Breathing in air
Off the skin of their backs

Whimsical heart, no conviction for your neighbors
You whisper in the dark, that you only want to wake up
'Cause tomorrow is new
If those star crushed eyes only knew

When you were young and full of life
All your brothers saying their goodbyes

Now you're on fire
Like the rest of your friends
And all you do is stare out the window and wish
Feel that weight on your shoulders getting bigger
We used to have it made now you're certain there's nothing better
We're wasting our time
What do you wanna do baby Lou?

When you were young and full of life
All your brothers saying their goodbyes

When you were young you stayed at home
And watched this sketchbook world pass you by

But you have a good smile
Track Name: Obvious Truth
She'll close the blinds and kill the lights when the postman is on his route
And dream of the crime. The loose grip on the knife of the undead recluse

And Believe the obvious truth
There is no good in this world for you
At all

She calls her man
She loves her man and that young foreigner squirms
Like all of her plans
You can't tackle the sandstorm, but fortune smiles when you've learned

To believe the obvious truth
There is no good in this world for you
At all

Never thought I'd fold my clothes on my own
Fear of breaking up is all I know

Believe the obvious truth
There is no good in this world for you
At all
Track Name: Foolish Children
I don't know how to use these tools anymore
Transistors and circuits on your motherboard

I'm lost in the forest, and I've been stranded for days
Never again
Never again
Never again
Tossed like your liter
Never again
Never again
Never again

We don't wanna be foolish children anymore

The machine of the future making small talk
Drop a nickel in the slot, you don't have to suffer anymore

I live in the surplus, but I'm not some kind of mistake
Never again
Never again
Never again
Tossed like your liter
Never again
Never again
Never again

Under the table my gun has one left in the chamber
Show us the hidden card up your sleeve
I wanna see it
I am a patient warrior
Never forgetting

Never again
Never again
Never again
Tossed like your liter
Never again
Never again
Never again
