Track Name: Schlumbergera (Christmas Cactus)
You've been driving 'round in circles
Trying to drive that pain away
Watching raindrops on your windshield
Chase each others' trails

The old spider in your doorway
Is mending her broken web
So the lucky fly will see a new day
Missing just one leg


So if tears are for assholes
Come on be an asshole just for once
Just don't be alone
Welcome
Home

The Christmas Cactus you left outside to drown
Is getting ready to decay
While the basil on your kitchen table
Has gone thirsty for twelve days

So if tears are for assholes
Come on be an asshole just for once
Just don't be alone
Well

If tears are for assholes
Go on be an asshole just for once
Just don't be alone
Well
Track Name: Night
Night
Fill my lungs
Life unsung
'cause my chest is tight

Skin
Don't fail me
Latterly
Feeling paperthin

Although I have stayed
inside my house all day
I feel as lost and errant
As a newborn stray

Moon
Fill my cup
Bottoms up
Watch me stumblin' out my room

Feet
Don't fail me
Carry me
Down familiar streets

Knowing my friend
Doesn't live here anymore
I'll leave a candle burning
By the unmarked door

Stars
Fill my eyes
Tears of ice
To repel the morning light

Knees
Fail me now
The cold winds sough
Her song through the trees

Don't leave me here
Silent bright and clear
Carry me on dark wings
Where my loved one sings
Track Name: To See The Sun
You run the knife
Across your arm
To keep your nerves
From doing you harm

The wine of life
Tastes too familiar
You long to serve
Some spirit higher

You want it so bad
It makes you so sad
You'd rather go mad than take your time

But don't you worry
Don't have to hurry
It's way too early to see the sun

Who was the thug
who broke your heart
Who's starring back
from all the shards

Behind the smoke
And a locked door
A truth has spoken
Don't you knock here no more

You say you're sorry
About your story
So what can I do about it now?

Why are you so uptight
If you know you're right
You'll see it glow bright
Don't ask me how

You want it so bad
It makes you so sad
You'd rather go mad than take your time

But don't you worry
Don't have to hurry
It's way too early to see the sun
