Track Name: Bury Me
You don't ask for nothin'
You don't want for much
You don't need me all that much

You don't cry forever
You don't hate my guts
You don't even know my...

Oh and I wait
For you to leave
Oh but you sit there
Laughing at me
Oh and I say
I'm like your disease
Oh but you never
Get rid of me

And I know it wouldn't be
The same without you please

You bury me

You don't want for nothin'
You don't ask for much
You just smile at my bad luck
You don't cry forever
When I drink too much
You don't stomp out all my fun

Oh and I wait
For you to leave
Oh but you sit there
Laughing at me
Oh and I say
I'm like your disease
Oh but you never
Get rid of me

And I know it wouldn't be
The same without you please

You bury me
Track Name: You Would Do The Same For Me
Somewhere in New Jersey my heart took a break to breathe
And as time was fucking money, well he smiled and said 'we'll see'
You'll never see the forrest while you're stuck inside your greed
As you wait for your life to be long

And I'll lie to your face
And I'll lead you astray
And I'll give you away
Oh but honey
You would do the same for me

Nothing changes till you find out what you're doing wrong
And there's nothing left to gain when you hide secrets in your songs
Lying is a game we play that helps us all belong
As you wait for what you will become

And I'll lie to your face
And I'll lead you astray
And I'll give you away
Oh but honey
You would do the same for me

Well nothing's gunna change yeah until your voice is gone
And we are not mistaken - we've been herded up and stung
The only thing you see are these ideas to which you've clung
As you wait for your life to be gone

And I'll lie to your face
And I'll lead you astray
And I'll give you away
Oh but honey
You would do the same for me
Track Name: Dirty Song
The hearts walk out and I'm on time
You're filled up with red, red wine
The things you're thinking, I think you'll find
Aren't true

The things you've said, you've heard before
When you hear my boots knocking on your floor
You'll never have to ask for more from me
From me

I love the way you move your lips
You twist
As your tongue wraps round my wits
That whiplash smile means I can barely breathe
I love the part
Where it starts
When we tear eachother's hearts
I will give you something
To scream about

Dirty voice from dirty lungs
You're stealing words from beneath my tongue
But you know that I'm not the one for you

You've worn my crown, now you're begging for change
The key is in so unlock my cage
And I will give half of myself to you
To you

I love the way you move your lips
You twist
As your tongue wraps round my wits
That whiplash smile means I can barely breathe
I love the part
Where it starts
When we tear eachother's hearts
I will give you something
To scream about
Track Name: Fight For You
I was the one
To tear the hole in your pocket
But as soon as you asked me
I told you I'd lost it
And I was the thinker
That dreamed up your plan
Said I'd let you right in
Said I'd let you be a man

I went to the fields
Where old men had fought
for your slapdash ideals
But I kept on running
And I kept on waiting
To find out if you
Really know what you're saying

When you said
Once you'd said to me
When you said
I don't remember
A thing at all

I will not fight for you
I will not fight for you
I will not fight for you
So I scream for you

Now I am flying
Back to my city
And I think of your eyes
So mean, and so gritty
I laid down my hands
I gave you the cards
I gave you my cigarettes
I gave you my heart

But nothing seems real
When you're waiting for something
That's so hard to steal
But I kept on running
And I keep on waiting
To find me some reason
To keep this voice from grating

When you said
When you said
Once you said
I don't remember
A thing and

I will not fight for you
I will not fight for you
I will not fight for you
So I scream for you
Track Name: Sickness
I can feel the darkness creeping in
It's under my hair - it's under my skin
I can feel that sickness crawling in to me

I can feel your deep kiss moving in
You've got the crime and I've got the sin
I can see a mean twist falling from your grin

But I've got you wrapped around my finger
And I've got you bent around my love

I can feel a deep breath dragging in
It's filling me up to the breakneck brim
And I can feel your weakness falling in to me

And I can feel your hard hips ramming in
You're under my hair - you're under my skin
When I can feel your sickness shining in to me

But I've got you wrapped around my finger
And I've got you bent around my love
Track Name: Easier To Lie
Well I had nothing left to lose
But I found myself still losing
I found myself still choosing
To come back home to you

Well I had nothing left to say
But I found myself still hoping
Found myself still groping
For pleasure in my pain

And I don't know why you bother
When I can see that indifference in your eyes
Well I've been bruised and I've been battered
But baby I know it's easier to lie

Well I drove away from this
So I couldn't see you fuming
I couldn't see you grooming
For another lover's kiss

And I smoked 10 cigarettes
Before my heart it started breaking
My hands they started shaking
Who's going to want me next?

And I don't know why you bother
When I can see that indifference in your eyes
Well I don't know why it matters
But baby I know it's harder just to cry

Well my old friend told me so
She said I hope you've got the money
To buy you enough whiskey
To get yourself through this

Oh and I'll just have to wait
Cos it never gets much better
Just harder to remember
The way we were each day

And I don't know why you bother
When I can see those stars are in your eyes
And I don't know why it matters
But baby I know it's easier to lie
