Track Name: Oh, Eureka
Oh, Eureka, you're wrecking your eyes
at the sight of such a beautiful boy

He paints flowers on the back of your hands,
but won't water them

Oh, Eureka, you're losing your mind
And it's killing your mother that you're killing so much time

She pushes the clocks back for you,
for she sees so much of herself, her mistakes, in you

Oh, Eureka, you're drowning your soul
in the bottle you coddle, so as not to feel so old

And its warmth wraps you up, so tight
And its warmth wraps you up, so tight

Oh, Eureka
Oh, Eureka
Track Name: Blackest of Blues
Technicolor eyes,
and the blackest of blues
The poignant argument
of why we love the ones we
lose

The beating, it's misleading
when it creeps from out your chest
And the silence, it's golden
It's golden

You're beautiful,
but I have to leave you now
You are beautiful,
but I have to leave you now
You're beautiful,
but I must leave you
I must leave you

Orthodox lines,
peach-toned hues
Illustrating each and every
crooked move.

The beating, it's misleading
when it creeps from out your chest
And the bullet, it's silver
It's so damn silver
Yes, it is

You're beautiful,
but I have to leave you now
You are beautiful,
but I have to leave you now
You're beautiful,
but I must leave you
I must leave you

You're beautiful,
you're an exercise in futility
You're beautiful
The one that I love, fervently
Though righteous in your prime,
I see straight to your delicate insides
The shift that come when air
inflates your lungs.

And so,
we breathe.
We breathe in,
deep
So deep, to the bottom of the sea
See what I mean, what I think, what I've been trying to say:
I love you but I simply cannot stay
No, I cannot stay
Track Name: Like A Tree Loses Leaves
Shedding your skin
like a tree loses leaves
Oh, oh, oh
Folding through colors
and unraveling seams
Oh, oh, oh

What's left behind
will remain in its grave,
reminding us all of better days

The thread comes undone
The cat and mouse game has begun
Search for yourself, search for your soul
in the cold, cold, world

Little did you notice,
you've been turning gray

The bookshelf where you read to me,
all the fairytales of what we would be
is gone

The fireplace isn't warm anymore
The firewood doesn't burn,
anymore

The thread comes undone
The cat and mouse game has begun
Search for yourself, search for your soul
and the reason you feel so old

In the darkness,
you'll find it all to be so true
It never meant anything
to anyone but you

The sweater your mother made you
when you were so young:
the thread comes undone
the thread comes undone

The cat and mouse game has begun

Oh, oh, oh

The sweater
you knit her
in the Christmas of December
in 1993;

The thread comes undone,
and your eyes they are red,
and you don't think you're going to get any sleep tonight

But if you let her into your bed,
let her into your mind
your head that's spinning in circles
Maybe you'll get somewhere, sometime soon

Find yourself,
you'll find your soul
Track Name: Given Up
I've given up my pen to write,
I've given up my will to fight, you

I've given up my everything,
the chance to breathe
You care, not at all
and that breaks my heart

And if I have ever wronged you,
I must sincerely say right now:
I'm not sorry
'cause you hurt me
And no, I won't sing you lullabies
no more,
no more
And if you lose it all
I won't be there to break the fall

I've given up my right to run,
I've given up this loaded gun

I've given up my everything,
the chance to be free
You care, you care, you care, not at all
and that breaks my heart

And if I wronged you,
which I know I never did,
I must confess to you
it was all worth it
You were my, you were my,
you were my heart

I'm so proud to watch you,
leave

Badum, badum, bum

You care, not at all
and that breaks my heart
