Track Name: I Call Mine
In spite of al I was going to say, I decided to smile
In times like these, when I'm fading away, I feel something inside

All by myself, here I sit, alone, but someday
Someday I'll find a place I call mine

I've been waiting for someone
Waiting for

All by myself, here I sit, alone, but someday
Someday I'll find a place I call mine
Track Name: This Different Life
Painting lines under my eyes
I take a dance under these skies
Lies
Putting stocking on my thighs
Pushing squares back down to size
Lies

Do what you wanna do
I Realize
Do what you wanna do
I Idealize this different life

Cold and pale narcotic eyes
Come to stay just for a while
Reddish hair and brownish eyes
Russian skin, no compromise

Do what you wanna do
I Realize
Do what you wanna do
I Idealize this different life
Track Name: Smile
Never liked to give my life away
Never liked the way you asked to stay
Never thought we were so far apart
Never thought I'd say this but

I'll smile if you want me to
But I could never like anyone like you
Nothing old and nothing new
Just things you want me to want as much as you

I prefer to wait another day
I prefer to try another way
You're so good to me, you make me pay
You're so cruel to me but it's OK

I'll smile if you want me to
But I could never like anyone like you
Nothing old and nothing new
Just things you want me to want as much as you
Track Name: Envy the Sun
I don't envy the sun, I've got black plastic glasses just like yours
Do you know that I've always been, I've always been yours
Do you lie when you say that you love me the same as before

Where have you gone
And what have I done wrong
Has it been so long, lover

I try to talk like before but I seem to get a hold on you
Do you know that I've always been, I've always been thinking about you
And as I get older, I'll get sober from you

Where have you gone
And what have I done wrong
Has it been so long, lover
Track Name: Hum
I came to see you in the house
I came to see you but you were gone
I'd like to se you all alone
You'd like to see me when I'm gone

I'd like to sing your melody
I'd like to see you hum with me
I'd like to sing your melody

I came to see you in the park
the people came to see you buried in the ground
I'll never see you all alone
You'll only see me when I'm gone

I'd like to sing your melody
I'd like to see you hum with me
I'd like to sing your melody
Track Name: Take Off Your Clothes
Take off your clothes and stand in the pose
I'll come back in style
And if nobody knows you are what you chose
I'll come back in style

Cos I know you like to say that you're like me
But the truth is that I'm closer to dirt
And I know I should be taking it easy
But a freak is so much harder to hurt

Take off your clothes and stand in the pose
Just hold me inside
And if nobody knows you are what you chose
Your hands on my side

Cos I know you like to say that you love me
But the truth is that you're making me hate
And I know I should be taking it easy
But a freak is so much harder to hurt

If we're so young and we're so wild
And you're so mine
Baby, where's my crown

If it's not real, don't make me believe
I ask again
Baby, where's my crown
Track Name: Velvet Eyes
I would have written a song for you if you wanted me
If you wanted me to
I would have tried to be a little like you if you wanted me
If you wanted me too

I know you
Want a place to shine
I see you with my velvet eyes

I would have tried to be a little more cruel if you wanted me
If you wanted me to be the star destined to shine in your sky
And sound just like lullaby

I know you
Want a place to hide
I see you want my velvet eyes

And if we're on a road to nowhere
And don't care if we'll really get there
Forget about the way we really were
Try to hide all the void away
But you can never drown it always

I know you
Want a place to shine
I see you with my velvet eyes
Track Name: Chocolate Cigarettes
I'm not you son
I'm not your friend
I'm not lover who has gone away to find new ways
To keep inside the peep hole of your lust

Disgust
In god I trust
I must confess
Life's turned to dust
I'll melt this copper down to steel
Addicted to this pain I feel

And now, now you're here
Just like me
Hate your touch, hate your TV

I'm shouting out to you
I don't like you like you do
Like chocolate cigarettes
Your cancer knows regrets
Like chocolate cigarettes

Your life and soul, that big black hole
That stings my heart and chokes my soul
Of you, enough of you
This life was never quite for you
So treat me like you always did
But I'm not listening to your feed
I'll melt this copper down to steel
Enchanted by this gift of melody

Now you're here
Just like me
Hate your touch, hate your TV

I'm shouting out to you
I don't like you like you do
Like chocolate cigarettes
Your cancer knows regrets
Like chocolate cigarettes
Track Name: Late on Time
Late on time
Let it all
Let it shine

Late on time
Let it all
Late and I

I don't want to live my life around Jesus
I've got what I need behind this glass wall

Late on time
Let it all
When it comes

Late on time
Let it all
Late and I

I don't want to live my life around Jesus
I've got what I need behind this glass wall
Track Name: Cocoon
Sometimes when you dig, all you find blood and dirt
It's the same
Sometimes when I call you for help and you don't answer
It's the same

Maybe I will one day know
The person that you were before
And I'll understand the things you did
And I'll know the person that you were
But until that day in afterlife, I'll stay inside my own cocoon
And I'll be inside my own cocoon
And I'll stay inside expecting from you
For nothing

All I have to say is
Why'd you tell me that you loved me
And you left
All I have to ask is
Why'd you tell me that you loved me
And you left

Maybe you will one day see the life that you've taken from me
And you'll understand the things you did
And you'll know the person that you were
But until that day in afterlife, I'll stay inside my own cocoon
And I'll be inside my own cocoon
And I'll stay inside expecting from you
For nothing
Track Name: Be Like Me
If you want to be nice
If you want to be shy
Be like me

But something in my mind is wrong
And I can't find a way
Something in my life is gone
And I can't find a way

If it's not enough to stay inside
If it's not enough to be alone outside
Be like me

But something in my mind is wrong
And I can't find a way
Something in my life is gone
And I can't find a way

There's always someone
Track Name: No
I've been running insane between the walls inside your house today
I've been guessing your feelings for me, my dear, and it's OK

No

I've been eating the sand beneath your feet and inside your hands
I've been dreaming about the way it feels to hold your hand again

No
