Track Name: Elizabeth
I was late for work that day
I heard the screams from far away
And as I walked up to the gate
I could tell I was too late

I walked those lonesome corridors
Up the stairs of countless floors
Followed that blood trail indoors
Like some wounded animal had come before me

Oh! Elizabeth! What you've done to me,
I cannot forgive, I cannot believe
Not six hundred more, For your heresy
I cannot forgive, I cannot believe

As I sit here on this stand
What an ironic thing to ask of a man
To testify against his love
I'll tell you everything you need to know

Oh! Elizabeth! What you've done to me,
I cannot forgive, I cannot believe
Not six hundred more, For your heresy
I cannot forgive, I cannot believe

As I walked into her room
I think they call that feeling impeding doom
I saw the body hanging upside down
Elizabeth sat there in her dressing gown
As I walked over to the bed
I could see the fire in her eyes, now, was dead
Oh! The things I could have said!
Wine glass full of something red

Oh! Elizabeth! What you've done to me,
I cannot forgive, I cannot believe
Not six hundred more, For your heresy
I cannot forgive, I cannot believe
Track Name: Two Bit
I was on the bridge
Told them all to stay
They had nothing left to say
They were broken toys, broken records

As I walked the beam
Smelled like kerosene
And paraffin wax, it's all that I lack
I've had my fair share of dreams

To the very edge
Smelled his cigarettes
And romanticized the eyes of wrong and right
And lies

Can you feel it in your veins?
Do you bleed and then slowly retract?
Is it more than what you felt that night on the train tracks?
Do you wander out?
Vacant and broken and choking down smoke?
Are you like me? Do you wonder if this is it?

It's a two bit world
And the drill won't spin for just any old girl
And the boy in the back frequents the rack
Where the magazines hang with her pictures

Does he have the gaul?
Does he lack to poise?
Or the steady hands?
The things that she needs in a man

Can you feel it in your veins?
Do you bleed and then slowly retract?
Is it more than what you felt that night on the train tracks?
Do you wander out?
Vacant and broken and choking down smoke?
Are you like me? Do you wonder if this is it?
Track Name: Reasons
It seems like I'm leaving but I ain't even
Walked out of the door
And it seems like you're slipping further away

This won't get better till we both get better
And I'm praying for that day
But it's an endeavor and I feel you'll
Just go your separate way

You need a reason to stay
I'm all out of reasons today
You don't need a reason to say
Those things you used to say
I'm all out of reasons

It seems like I'm feeling but I'm not feeling
Like my self today
And I want to tell you the things that I'm leaking
Out my open veins
I feel I'm not right
I feel that you shouldn't have to walk this road alone
But I ain't walking 'cause it's hard with no legs left to stand on

You need a reason to stay
I'm all out of reasons today
You don't need a reason to say
Those things you used to say
I'm all out of reasons

You need a reason to stay
I'm all out of reasons today
You don't need a reason to say
Those things you used to say
I'm all out of reasons
