about

i thought certainly it must be
that Beatrice will die
then i, i had to close my eyes
and in the waning wind that came and went
i thought i heard it said
"thou too art dead in time
so hold your tongue all cold and come
see our lady where she lies"

when i open my eyes
i cried
"oh Beatrice, oh please, will you believe in this?"

Track Name: Beatrice I
i thought certainly it must be
that Beatrice will die
then I, i had to close my eyes
and in the waning wind that came and went
i thought i heard it said
"thou too art dead in time
so hold your tongue all cold and come
see our lady where she lies"

when i opened my eyes i cried
"oh Beatice oh please will you believe in this"
Track Name: I Don't Ever See You Walking
i've fanned the last of your flames
you've heard the last of my days
i've got no more pages for you
on why we were made

but you call me so casually
even after you come
over on christmas day
drunk on champagne

i ain't ever seen you walking
just standing in random spots

we've always battled with glances
now you come close to dance
but the distance is different
and i can't hold your hand

we've both got our maps
ones in ink and ones in chalk
you got this way and i'll go that
i bet you'll be the first to get lost

but i don't ever see you walking
just standing in random spots
Track Name: Beatrice III
through heaven, hell and Medea
and all my Rainer Maria
in solitude and in jealousy
i wish water would run down to me

we could begin to be human beings
(i said what i said to you - you said what you said to me)
and say "see, we are one in the same"
(but not what i wanted to - i couldn't hear anything)
and loss is nothing but change

into our slave family of authors
with an overseas officer
marches Lady Liberty
who'd die just to save me

a union of the two of you will only be
(i said what i said to you - you said what you said to me)
a dried seed dropped in some mud
(but not what i needed to - that you'd be there for me)
and in what grows up
the difference is none

oh i can give you nothing at all
all my gold turns to coal in your hands
and i become poor in the end
Track Name: True Love Will Find You In the End
true love will find you in the end
you'll find out who was your friend
don't be sad, i know you will
but don't give up until
true love will find you in the end

this is a promise with a catch
only if you're looking can it find you
because true love is searching
and how can it recognize you
unless you step out into the light

don't be sad, i know you will
but don't give up until
true love will find you in the end
don't be said, i know you will
but don't give up until
true love will find you in the end
Track Name: Beatrice II
can i kiss you when you come back
it's been bruising how badly i've missed you
you wouldn't want to know what you've missed
you wouldn't kiss me
if you ever even came back
so i shouldn't tell you what you've missed

ive always wanted to love an artist
Track Name: Beatrice IV
i'm no night owl
but with the lights out
full of fantasies
and flames the burn the floor beneath my feet

i search the shadows
for your eyes closed
almost awake and its later than you think

the night says "its the wind
and a foolish, false vision"
that in some room somewhere i told you all the sins i think

in between dreams
you drive around, pro-slavery
that hell you've helped create

yet render it so pleasant
it looks like heaven
and it makes me believe
that i'll be OK
Track Name: Dead Canaries
he was successful guy
he had his picture taken at the age of 25
he was a hot shot business man
he was making a lot of money
he had always been successful

it started to turn on him
his, if you will, sin, caught up with him
Track Name: I Beat You (I Don't Care What Anybody Says)
and now it gets harder
right, now

i have a ridiculously high score

wow, that's unbelievably, huge

every time i need a line, without fail
i get one

you can probably trace it back to an event
that fucked me up
for life

oh that blows
that blows
that blows

holy shit
i don't want to play anymore
wow, i won
i beat you tetris
i don't care what anybody says

wow that was a good game
i need to take a nap
