Track Name: Constant Communication
If you let me go I promise I'll be good. Keep my head down, do exactly as I should and if I crack up you'll be the first to know, you got front row tickets and I'm the star of your favorite show.

Oh and yes I know, yes I know how you love me so
as long as I, as long as I wallow here in the muck and the mud.
It's sick, it's insane how you insist on doing the same thing twice.

Is it really so strange an atheist should pray?
Chipping away at the stone only pain can make him change.
Oh and when he hurts, when he hurts life it moves so slow
Oh but if you want you can repeat for the same result.

Oh and yes I know, yes I know how you love me so
as long as I, as long as I wallow here in the muck and the mud.
It's sick, it's insane how you insist on doing the same thing twice.

Constant communication in the twenty first century is wearing me down.

Oh how you need. How you need. How you need. How you need and you put it on the page for all your friends to see. Stop posting things! Stop posting things! I don't care what it is I don't care where you are just stop posting things!


Oh and yes I know, yes I know how you love me so
as long as I, as long as I wallow here in the muck and the mud.
It's sick, it's insane how you insist on doing the same thing twice.

Constant communication in the twenty first century is wearing me down.
Track Name: To Love and Be Loved
They are going to lock me up and you can't even be straight with me can you? Every morning, every single day I can feel it behind my eyes. I'm well aware you've counted me out. I'm down deep in the darkest of lows. It's often said but it rings so true. It's so hard, so hard, so hard to change.
Oh I need to love. To love and be loved.
Like it or not the heart will be filled. With love or hate, anything needed to survive. So I'll keep on singing. I'll find it somehow. Maybe a different face, maybe another name. But where will I go if it never comes and who will I tell my story too? I don't know maybe it's all just the same but I'll be here anyway with my words and my faith.
Oh I need to love. To love and be loved.
So if you let me go now I will believe, I will pray and I'll see you when the light hits my eyes. Rising up in the most desperate of times but I know I'll be saved if I watch for the signs. And where will I go if it never comes and who will I tell my story too? Walking down the hospital halls an empty bed where you used to be.
Oh I need to love. To love and be loved.
