Track Name: December
melting in the hot december night
hoping everything will come out all right
i hope you come out safe

there's nobody around for miles
i'm surrounded by their paper smiles
they make me sad

tellin you lies so you won't think i'm a thief
i never get to feel any relief
i'm always in the wrong

can't satisfy myself, but i satisfy you
it always feels like it's brand new
i always want you
Track Name: Vacuum
feel like i'm tripping into nothing
feel like i fell flat on my face
feel like i'm riding a wave of regret
into bottomless space

oh the seer-salt suckers could suck me in
i'll leave my body behind
the walls are quickly closin in
and i can't help but smile

my other halves won't stop callin
they're tryin to call me away
soft explosion is the warnin
where have you been today
Track Name: In the Forest
come and kiss me in the forest baby
where all good women love to play
come and kiss me in the forest, my love
sugar don't shy away

make your way down from the skies of sound
to the mountains we're allowed to see
then come into the canyon of catholics
that heaves in and out with me

ooooooh, ooh-ooh-oooooooooaaaaah

kiss me in the forest baby
where you know i'll love it oh-so-much
kiss me in the forest lover
and let me feel your lovely touch

ooooh, ahh ahh ahhhhhhhhhh
ooooh, ahh ahh ahhhhhhhhhh

and i'll kiss you in the forest my love
where the fruit is so divine
i'll kiss you in the forest sugar
and i'll take my time....
Track Name: Kiss
i felt sick today
as the sun was risin
you know just how i feel
you know
you know that it's the same

i miss you
i'm so sick without you
i need your kiss
i need you
i'm not here without you
without this

i woke up to find myself dreamin
i saw your face here next to me
i lay still to watch you sleepin
i hope you dreamt of me
Track Name: Moon
the sun shines brightest on the saintly girls
under the midday moon
they don't know what's hidden in this world
and what will happen soon
it all flows heavy on the drier days
when the wind blows through the trees

you feel a chill that bites your bones
and your body starts to freeze
the sun shines brightest on the heavy days
but the midday moon
is there to guide you home
you know you'll never fall away

the saintly girl will show you how
and you'll show her what you are
it bites your bones
when the wind blows through the trees
but the midday moon
is there to guide you home
you know you're never far away

the bells stop ringing
when the wind is gone
and the leaves are far away
and it all comes down to a lonely song
on another rainy day
but the midday moon
is there to guide you home
you know you're never far
away
Track Name: Dark Light
clear skies
the grass is green
rolling on
into the sun
wind blows
and knocks you down
and clear skies

the sun burns your eyes and cooks your skin
the blood is pouring out again
and clear skies, clear skies
leave nothing unseen

bare feet trample down the green
to an end we cannot see
they were left behind
but they are not alone
Track Name: This Morning
this morning it happened again
they found the lies that i tried to keep hid

and i don't know
how to tell you what i don't know
i can't keep myself
from stopping the show

they say that we don't know what we're doin
they say that lovin you is a sin

and i don't know
how to tell them that that's not so
i don't have anywhere
to go

i can't lose you now
you have my soul
i can't lose you now
or i will lose control
Track Name: No Flavor
seems like forever
is never winding down
i'm still breathin
and i'm still here

it's polished and lovely
and heartbreaking now
to see it coming up
so many dull shades

so tasteless that it hurts
there's no flavor for your life
it's all vaporized
there's no flavor for your life

crushing yourself
breaking it down, oh yeah
winding up, winding up

there's no climax, just a sheer drop
it's forced on me
and i can't lie
but i'm trying to outrun the truth

there's no flavor for your life
it's all vaporized
so tasteless that it hurts
there's no flavor for your life
