Track Name: Normal
Someday we'll be normal.
I'm pissing in the sink like a champ.
Someday we'll be normal.
I want to see you hit him.

And I can't wait
To e-mail you someday
And say that I miss you.
And I can't wait
To e-mail you someday
And say that I'm normal.

Someday we'll be normal.
I used to think I hated that.
Someday we'll be normal,
Above the blood and broken glass.

And I can't wait
To e-mail you someday
And say that I lost it.
And I can't wait
To e-mail you someday
And say that I'm normal.

I want that I want that I want that I want that I want that I want that I want that I want that I want that I want that I want that I want that I want that I want that I want that I want that I want that I want that I want that I want that I want that I want that I want that I want that I want that I want that I want that I want that I want that I want that I want that I want that I want that I want that I want that I want that I want that I want that I want that I want that I want that I want that I want that I want that I want that I want that I want that I want that
Track Name: 2:24
At 2:24,
We locked the door
And talked some more
Even though there was little left to say.

"Don't think I'd mind
Not being alive,
Because you know that I've
Already spent centuries that way.

I'm not sure whose dreams I am chasing after;
I'm just counting pages to the next chapter.
Before I began,
I skipped ahead,
Read the last sentence.
I know how it ends."

And you agreed!
You're just like me
Because you can see
And you took me and told me to relax.

We found a light
In your pocket that night
And I held you tight
As you tossed it to the paper stacks.

I'm not sure whose dreams I am chasing after;
I'm just counting pages to the next chapter.
Before I began,
I skipped ahead,
Read the last sentence;
I know how it ends.
I know how it ends.
I know how it ends.
Track Name: Don't Miss Me (demo)
When you said,
"I'll miss you forever,
I'll miss you forever,"
I wish you'd known
I'd rather you just come on back home
Where we'd be together,
The only forever you'd ever know.

'Cause it's hard to pretend I'm not already dead
When I see it watching me
From the bus stop over there by the tree.
So I take what you said then with a grain of lead
And it's weighing down my knees.
Please don't miss me.

When you said,
"I'll miss you forever,
I'll miss you forever,"
I wish you'd known
I'd rather you'd never be alone
And we'd be together,
The only forever you'd ever know.

'Cause it's hard to pretend I'm not already dead
When I see it watching me
From the bus stop over there by the tree.
So I take what you said then with a grain of lead
And it's weighing down my knees.
Please don't miss me.
Track Name: Final Days
These aren't the final days.
I still feel the rays of the sun.
But it still feels over now,
Time to take a bow,
It's been fun!
Because I'm not done with life,
Just the one I've known for so long.

I turned the family name
To a badge of shame
We must wear
Over the centuries,
Passed like the disease
That brought us there,
The destiny we share
And the color of our hair.

These aren't the final nights.
I've still got some fights left in me.
But when you've lost every one
You've ever begun
Then you see
That it's not worth your breath
To have feelings for anything.

I'll take the medicine
She prescribed back then
Long ago
Or take the first bus out to
New York or to New
Mexico.
A traveling shit show
Traveling on down the road.

I'll be safe.
I promised you,
And one day, too, I'll be good.
I'll be safe.
I promised you.
I promised you I would.
Track Name: The Weather
I hope you don't mind if I go on about the weather;
Sometimes I can't think of things to say when we're together.
I just want to be there,
I just want to be there next to you.
