Track Name: Poor Diogenes
it all fell outta place
but I've still
got a smile on my face
because I'm
walking out of this place to find you

I've been winging it more
just spitballin'
gotta keep moving forward
no stalling
though my feet are still sore and swollen

and if you want
the truth I'll give it to you now
I never thought
you could be so cold
that shows how much I know

all I need is a taste
to get me
up and outta this place
you've got me
and I know that I can't escape you

it's still all outta place
but it's not
gonna stand in my way
'cause I'm gonna
walk right out of this place and find you

and if you want
the truth
I'll give it to you now
you never thought
I could be so cold
that shows how much you know

shows how much you know
Track Name: Self-Involved
I'd really like to break your fall
but I'm so fucking self-involved
and every time that we touch tongues
I feel like I'm doing something wrong

and I wonder what you're saying when nobody else is around
and it's just you and you're playing that game where you talk to yourself
and you laugh at yourself
when you talk to yourself

I really wanna make some progress
with something that I've never known
'cause everything just makes me yawn
and I really wanna be enthralled again

it's a wonder I can see straight with all of this coursing through my veins
it's a wonder I'm not sleeping
how are you sleeping?
have you been sleeping?
and are you sleeping alone?

I'm really glad I turned you on
but I'm so fucking self-involved
and I may not know just what I want
but I do know what I do not want
and everything that you're involved in
is something that I do not want

if you mattered much to me you'd know it 'cause I'd say it to you
and if it mattered I would be there
Track Name: Being Careful
she's being careful with her words
so she stays in the right
whether it's better or worse
and I don't even have to try
to know what she's been going through

we always do this once or twice
before we get down to the truth and realize
it's just that sickness called self doubt
that dissects us from time to time

but she tells me that it's all right
and she don't have a reason to lie
and she asks me if I'm alright
and I lie and I say that I'm fine

I'm being careful with my words
'cause mostly I understand they just make it worse
and I don't wanna have to try
to do it on my own again
again and again

but she tells me that it's all right
and she don't have a reason to lie
and she asks me if I'm alright
and I lie and I say that I'm fine

when she asks me if I'm alright
I just lie and I say that I'm fine
and she tells me that it's all right
and she don't have a reason to lie
Track Name: In The Black
when will I be in the black again?
it's so lonely without someone to call "friend"

I don't want you to pass me by but I don't wanna have to try

when will we be in the black again?
and will this troublemaker's trouble never end?

a sudden stinging in my eye as I watch you walk by

it ain't the way you walk
it's more like what's been left when you're gone
and there was something in your taste
that betrayed that sweet look on your face

when will we be in the black again?
will all this wandering ever come to an end?

I don't wanna wonder why
(I've lost you)
I don't wanna feel so fried
(I've lost you)
I won't ask another time
(I've lost you)
Track Name: Making Choices
you're making choices
every time you
do the same old fuckin' thing
you'll bitch and you'll moan and
make excuses
but it's still just a choice you made

and back in the day
it was the same
but there was energy to keep us moving on
and when I was on fire
I could prop you up
and carry you without you even knowing a thing

I've been crossing off vices
from a list that's
growing longer every day
you're cutting a rug that's
from the same cloth
that I left when I went away
and you'll rearrange it
so it seems new
from the outside looking in
at the solitary union
stitched together
out of rank desperation and dread

and back in the day
it was the same
but there was energy to keep us moving on
and when I was on fire
I could prop you up
and carry you without you even knowing a thing

turn around and go
or turn around and talk
which is the right choice for you?

you're too drunk to go
you're too drunk to talk

which is the right one for you?

and back in the day
it was the same
but there was energy to keep us moving on
and when I was on fire
I could prop you up
and carry you without you even knowing a thing
