Track Name: Empty Mess
never said the words I meant
but I dreamed them up inside my lonely head
then I erased it all from the center to the edge
disappear into this empty mess

days go by I waste my time
I tell myself I'm fine
I tell myself so many lies

this ghost of everything that you know
dim light flicker in the dark borders of my soul
I lost the spark of life I tried so hard to hold
it's only fair for me to let you go

days go by I waste my time
I tell myself I'm fine
I tell myself so many lies

condescending angels fall
to circle buildings in the smog
wondering what went wrong

Track Name: Forget About You
I can feel you even when you're not with me
I can tell when something's wrong
gone wrong

How do I make my memory fade
and forget about you
like you want me to?

In this cruel complex world
where people come and go
friends fade away without a goodbye
I must've changed my mind
about a thousand times or more
and wonder why I can never decide

How do I make my memory fade
and forget about you
like you want me to?

Track Name: Big Black Hole
the TV hums and glows in the dark
I made a big black hole in my heart
to see if I'd miss ya
and I guess I did yeah
I got this big black hole in my

no more light
from this heavy star
I made a big black hole in my heart
tried to figure it out
but I can't find
the wonder's gone
still got this big black hole in my heart

it's gettin' bigger everyday
a little blacker and bigger
taking over everything
like it's the only thing that matters

and when I wake up from this bad dream
sent you away to find out what I need
you've gone so far
and left me with this big black hole in my heart

it's gettin' bigger everyday
a little blacker and bigger
taking over everything
like it's the only thing that matters

if I ever wonder where you are
I got this big black hole in my heart
hey hey
I got what I gave
a big black hole in my heart

Track Name: Home of No Home
I saw a breeze creep up on your shoulder
steal a kiss and blow away again
just when the night
comes creeping around you
close your eyes and wish it all away
a home of no home

when you finally get to the end
you're back where you started
clueless again
drunk before noon
when life comes crashing around you
close your eyes and wish it all away
a home of no home

I guess I'm numb
no pain no fun
nothing turns my on
lost it again
I lost it again
in this home of no home

Track Name: Forget You Not Blue
forget you not blue
but dark like my heart
fall fell apart
empty arms hold hollow stars
delete me from you
lost burnt and bruised
insulted abused
undone and untrue
forget me not black and I'll
forget you not blue

forget you not blue
but empty and cold
unloved and unknown
cached burnt and blown
desperate and sold
delete me from you
no love in the light
what's left is just wrong
mixed with lies and fog
and ghosts of the truth
forget me not black and I'll
forget you not blue
