Lyrics

eager for your love

Written By: tristen gaspadarek

don't believe that it's a curse it's just intelligence
don't believe it's so much worse than when it wasn't hers

i was only caring for you.

tame that nasty shrew cause she knows what you're up to
keep her thin and hungry so she's eager for your love

some things seem so clear to me with cloudy muddled view
sometimes people lie, sometimes people la dee da dee da

i was only caring for you.

the detective

Written By: tristen gaspadarek

triangulate
save all your loving for me
i went to school now the rules they
have changed

pick me a winner
gotta pick me a winner

falling in and in and out of love

triangulate save
all your loving for me
i played the fool now i know nothing is free

pick me a winner
gotta pick me a winner

falling in and in and out of love

special kind of fear

Written By: tristen gaspadarek

baby don't you know that it is true?
they will throw you to the lions if you
haven't got a clue.

baby don't you know that you are free
from the shackles you've been locked in and the land of make of make believe?

pretty little
lullaby with your voice so sweet
take me to that special place where i don't have to think

baby don't you know that it is true?
they will build a
million fires with the language that they use.
baby don't you know that you
are free from the body that you live in and the empty things you
mean?

pretty little lullaby with your voice so sweet, take me to that
special place where I don't have to think.

maybe when the end is drawing
near we can paint a pretty picture of this special kind of fear

matchstick murder

Written By: tristen gaspadarek

found you wrecked out on the floor
deep dark dagger in your back
why was i shifting so quietly?

woke up this time stomping on the floor
strung out, hung up color bands of war
hung in the air
the day the deed went down

matchstick murder
who is to blame?

put me on trial the day the dogs were out
jury made up stories for the way they thought it was
the day the dead went down

matchstick murder
who is to blame?
as the lazy ladies hold up the glass to their holy rolling husbands of wealth

no rolling stone may break my bones
you always said i was a liar
but you don't know how hard i tried to turn the daggers in your eyes into the chains of chastity.

what doesn't kill you makes you thin when cozy rooms won't fit your stretch
look to your pocket for the key to unlock the misery and plant your feet upon the road

wicked heart

Written By: tristen gaspadarek

hello to the master of the inside.
i am sure you know just what you
see.
through your blurry glasses the sunlight is pristine.

buzzer, double a double standard
waiting deep inside the final clue
to connect the
missing link and game it locks me to.

a secret world imagined so your eyes
can see the purest glow he voluntarily bestowed upon your wicked heart

i am not a master of the outside
i can only know what i have seen
through my foggy window protected by a screen

and as i beckon starlight for an arrow
to shoot my lover deep inside his heart
the clouds begin to pour their rain and muddy up my path again

to secret worlds imagined so your eyes can see the purest
glow he voluntarily bestowed upon your wicked heart
