Track Name: Phantoms
The ship's going down I got what you need,
I got a lifeboat baby but the lifeboat leaves,
I got a lifeboat baby and its gonna leave,
we're going all the way down.

They're coming after you with their knives and keys,
I got a safe place, and that place is me,
I got a safe place honey, but we have to leave,
before you're all the way down.

I remember making fires on the winter beach,
and how I want you, I want you for me,
oh yes I want you, but you don't want me,
and I feel all the way down.

You're just a silly little girl hiding in yourself,
and you're a stranger honey, yes you're strange as hell,
and you're a stranger, and I just can't tell,
if it goes all the way down.

And I can't comprehend anything that you say,
you're gonna need help baby 'cause its almost day,
you're gonna need help and I'm on the way,
and now you're all the way down.

And now you're lying down there with your face in your arms,
and I still like you, I try to keep you calm,
and I still like you, and try to keep you calm,
before you're all the way down.

I really wanna leave, I can't seem to quit,
you know I love you, although you look like shit,
oh yes I love you baby though you feel like shit,
you're bringing me all the way down.

I really wanna leave, you can't make me stay,
I'm gonna leave you, but help's on the way,
I was gonna leave you, until I heard you say,
"You brought me all the way down."

The ship's going down I got what you need,
I got a life boat baby but the life boat leaves,
I got a life boat, and its gonna leave,
we're going all the way down.

The ship's going down I got what you need,
I got a life boat baby but the life boat leaves,
a fucking life boat, but I'll never leave,
so I'll go all the way down.

La da da da.
Track Name: Sitting Ovation
I know the answers to your problems,
but I ain't gonna let you know.
On first inspection I seem nervous,
but you don't know how far I'll go.

I was young and I was mean.
Now I got no company.
I was young and I was mean,
to you

"My personality is flawless,
how could you tell me otherwise?"
"I can surmise that you are jealous,
oh I can see it in your eyes."

I was young and I was rude.
Now you've got an attitude.
I was young and I was rude,
to you.
Track Name: I'd Like To
I wanna see you, wanna see you bad,
I wanna make you forget about the things I said,
About how you were acting strange and you look young,
I wish, I wish, I wish, I wish that I could bite my tongue,
I wanna dress up in your clothes and run around and show,
Everyone how much anyone could even possibly know,
I wanna wear your sweater and your flowing skirt,
And make myself forget about how much I heart,
I wanna feel your hand being squeezed in mine,
I wanna swim 500 meters in a pool of wine,
I wanna tell you how pretty you look today,
I wanna take an empty bottle, throw it at your face,
I wanna kiss you on your lips and inside of your mouth,
I wanna show you how,
I'm like a nasty piece of grizzle on some quality meat,
I'm the broken fucking leg on your favorite seat,
I'm when you open up a beer and the bottle explodes,
I'm the icy fucking road that fucking broke your nose,
I'm the capsules you don't take so you can feel alive,
I am the person that you come to telling only lies.
