Lyrics

Kimchee Princess

Written By: Jason Maksymilian

I don't mind if I'm killing time it's all I can do
Feeling fine is all I can lie about without you
Break another one, open everyone to the blue
I can't fake on a sunny day if it's without you

It's just another one of those imaginary days
And if the kimchee princess ain't around I'll be okay
And we can run and run and run around til we drop dead
It's alright cause it's all been said
It's okay cause it's in my head

Bender

Written By: Jason Maksymilian

Who do you thrill on the pill?
I'm a blowing up kinda guy-DIY
Lame. It's the same til you play
On a bender from day to day. If that's okay..

I need you still in my heart.
From the kill at the start
Until death do us part.

Lie, Loreli, by and by
I've been begging a melody. Empathy.
Scarlet so true. Til I blew
On a bender from day to day. If that's okay..

I need you still in my heart.
From the kill at the start
Until death do us part.
I don't know what I would do
without angels like you
To disease all the blues.

Divide

Written By: John Alexander/Jason Maksymilian

Do you know where you go to get by?
Tell me what it's like when you're up there.
Second hand's not far from the divide.
Five, six, seven, eight is on your side.

Do you know how long I'll be alive?
Your fair maiden knows what's in the air.
Second hand's not far from the divide.
Five, six, seven, eight is on your side.
Nowhere to hide.
Running from this life.
Only to find time.

Second hand's not far from the divide.
Five, six, seven, eight is on your side.
