Track Name: Volume II
you're just like a book I have never read
but I have made up all the lines inside my head
and I wanna turn a page or two
I just wanna turn you on, then turn on you

so baby, open up for me, I'll give you what you want
as long as you take me into those hands where I belong
those hands where I belong

I put you down, then I pick you up, and I put you down again
I'd do anything just to keep myself from coming to your end
oh, let me crack your spine in two
I wanna know if what I've dreamt is true

so baby, open up for me, I'll give you what you want
as long as you take me into those hands where I belong
those hands where I belong
Track Name: Say My Name
must be something about the way that you walk in a room
feels like the walls are caving in, I'm on needles and pins

and it's all right by me, baby, that it might just end right here
won't you hold me 'til we both just disappear?

must be something about the way
must be something about the way
something about the way you look tonight
must be something about your face
must be something about this place
something about the way you say my name
something about the way you say my name

must be something about the carnage you leave in your wake
it's all black cats and sidewalk cracks

and it's all right by me, baby, if we're going down in flames
won't you hold me 'til we both just fade away?
Track Name: Scott's Tots
call me up in a month or two, I'll be here
waiting just to see how you've been

shake my hand, force a smile, and linger a little too long
say, "I'm sorry that I couldn't be what you want"
but you've never asked what I want

well, the odds are stacked against me, so I'm folding
why play if the house always wins?

shaky hands, shifty eyes, and I can't keep my head in the game
and I'm sorry that you had to see me this way
but you would have seen it some day

now you wanna call me at four in the morning about the weather?
I haven't seen the ground in months
it's cold and I'm bitter
I mean it's bitter
Track Name: For You, While Being Human
you say you wanna sit and talk about it
but not here, and not right now
your head's too full of clouds
don't know when you're coming down, again
you worry that the fervor's gone forever
you no longer feel the fire
your body's slowing rusting
you can't even trust your own mind

you always say a canvas needs a conflict
you shiver through a fever in your bones
that's how the body works

there is certain subtlety within your starving
there is truth within your lies
carry talent like a burden
say you're doing fine
with all you have, you battle pragmatism
so much grandeur in your mind
growing up was not an option
no room for hindsight

to feel everything by way of nothing
but you can't spit fire without swallowing smoke
that's how the body works

and I'm sorry, 'cause I never got to tell you
all the ways you've sunk deep into me
so here's to you, for only being human
'cause that's all you could ever hope to be
Track Name: Thalassophobic Seasick Blues
every night, I dream that I am drowning
waves begin to fill my head
how quickly in the currents we're forgotten
oh, it's delicate

come over me in waves as we are touching
ebb and flow

with arms like tides and eyes as big as oceans
and a rhythm that just makes my stomach sick
you cling to me like salt water up against my skin
stinging with each lick

we cling so closely to the coastline
landlocked only by our heads
'cause it rages even when you think it's frozen
oh, it's desperate

come over me in waves as we are touching
ebb and flow

with arms like tides and eyes as big as oceans
and a rhythm that just makes my stomach sick
you cling to me like salt water up against my skin
stinging with each lick
