Track Name: Always Rains
(Verse 1)
They leave just when I get used to this,
So I guess I'll add them to the top of my list.
How long until I feel normal again?
Been too long since I've felt safe in my own skin.

(Chorus)
I want the waters to wash away my troubles and
I wanna go on a rampage armed with my rain boots.

(Verse 2)
I hate the fact that I can't hate you,
and even more so, that you know it's true.
Oh don't come near me, I'm not safe right now.
So go on, cue the applause, and take your bow.

(Chorus)
I want the waters to wash away my troubles and
I wanna go on a rampage armed with my rain boots.

(Bridge)
It always rains here, it always rains here.
It always rains here, it always always always rains.
Track Name: Whisper
(Verse 1)
We like to whisper the truth.
We are afraid of hearing it out loud.
We like to whisper the truth.
We only use our wispy voices now.

(Chorus)
I don't know what you want from me,
but I'll try and figure it out.
Can't hear what you say to me.
It's a language that I don't understand,
but I'll try to translate it:
I love...

(Verse 2)
We like to laugh more than cry.
We are afraid of facing sadness.
We like to laugh more than cry.
We only speak in riddles that are senseless.

(Chorus)
I don't know what you want from me,
but I'll try and figure it out.
Can't hear what you say to me.
It's a language that I don't understand,
but I'll try to translate it:
I love...

(Bridge)
I won't whisper...
Track Name: Your Hands
(Verse 1)
I walked along the beach.
I dug my toes deep in the sand,
And I was happy.
I swam against the tide.
I waved my good-byes to a passing sailboat,
And I was happy.

(Chorus)
And though you can't see it,
And though you can't hear it,
My heart is pounding in your hands.

(Verse 2)
I laughed at old jokes.
I leaned in closer just to hear the punchline,
And I was happy.
I sang a little song, I wrote the tune all by myself,
And I was happy.

(Chorus)
And though you can't see it,
And though you can't hear it,
My heart is pounding in your hands.
And though you can't see it,
And though you can't hear it,
My heart is pounding in your hands.
Track Name: Disease
(Verse 1)
Your disease is frantic, feverish,
Spreading to me.
911 can't help me now.
Just leave me for dead.
I will find a way to heal, to heal...

(Verse 2)
Your hands are frantic, feverish,
All over me.
No my God can't save me now,
So I'll harden my heart,
And find some room to breathe, just breathe.

(End)
Your disease is spreading to me.
Your hands are all over me.
Track Name: Emergency
(Verse 1)
Safety net ripped away again.
Tripped and scraped my heart again.
Call a doctor, strap her down tight.
I'm stronger than this, I'll fight it.

(Verse 2)
Seems we found ourselves here again.
Told a lie, believed it again.
Send for rescue, emergency time,
Oh who let you out, you're mine now.

(Chorus)
Is "I want it" a good enough reason for you?
Try to justify all the things I'm doing...

(Verse 3)
Fake a smile, play pretend again,
and none of this will happen again.
I know your eyes see straight through me.
I don't know what I believe anymore...
Track Name: The Silly Song
(Verse 1)
Boys are pretty stupid.
They make me wanna be a lesbian -- or maybe not.
Because girls are pretty vicious.
They bitch about each other behind their backs, and then act cute.

(Chorus)
I am dying to be loved.
I am trying to find love -- and it sucks.

(Verse 2)
Did I mention boys are stupid?
They feed you all these lines and in a week they leave you cold.
Another week goes by,
And another girl finds comfort in his arms -- what the fuck?!

(Chorus)
I am dying to be loved.
I am trying to find love.
I am dying, I'll keep trying,
But I'm finding out that love sucks.

Yeah, it sucks.
Track Name: Breaking Point
(Verse 1)
The thought of you terrifies me.
It terrifies the mind, my mind,
It breaks at the thought of you...

(Chorus)
Stop leading me on like this,
Leading me down this path that's forbidden,
Leading me farther away.
It's getting harder to say "stop."

(Verse 2)
Lost myself all over,
All over and under you.
Don't send me over the edge again, please.

(Chorus)
Don't lead me on like this.
Don't lead me down this path that's forbidden.
Don't lead me further away.
Don't make it easy to stay...

All over me... stop, please.
