Track Name: Bad Bad Blood
well my body beats so loud
i feel it underground
that slow and steady sound
of my heart pumping

and i’m gonna let it out
i’m gonna drag you down
get lost and never found
the end it’s coming

oh, with m-m-m-my my bad bad blood
oh, with m-m-m-my my bad bad blood
oh, with m-m-m-my my bad bad blood
the engine’s running

oh, with m-m-m-my my bad bad blood
oh, with m-m-m-my my bad bad blood
oh, with m-m-m-my my bad bad blood
the end it’s coming

you’re down on luck, out of time
got bad bad bad blood tonight
you’re down on luck, out of line
got bad bad bad blood tonight
yeah you got bad blood tonight

and night after night the dark
it sinks into this heart
and lo i slowly start
to lose my senses

and now that the moon is out
you’re gonna feel it now
get lost and never found
the end it’s coming

oh, with m-m-m-my my bad bad blood
oh, with m-m-m-my my bad bad blood
oh, with m-m-m-my my bad bad blood
the end is coming

you’re down on luck, out of time
got bad bad bad blood tonight
you’re down on luck, out of line
got bad bad bad blood tonight
yeah you got bad blood tonight

and i don’t know why
you always lie
your alibi
it’s paper thin, i’m coming in

and your sky ignites
with dynamite
electric light
it’s paper thin, i’m coming in

oh, with m-m-m-my my bad bad blood
oh, with m-m-m-my my bad bad blood
oh, with m-m-m-my my bad bad blood
the end it’s coming
Track Name: Heart of Darkness
well your heart is such a fragile thing
it beats, repeats in cavities
it moves itself about your chest
ticking down the time you spent
pumping all your blood, in between
saving all it’s love, underneath

oh but i could never change enough
i could never break it off

you got a heart of darkness, darkness
it’s not the love you wanted, you wanted
how did you get so cold
you got a heart of darkness, my darkest love

my darkest love

now it’s in all your magazines
faded dreams and fantasies
alcohol and cheap cassettes
lack of sleep and TV sets
just one cigarette, finally
you could use a rest, in between

oh but i could never urn it off
i could never cut the loss

you got a heart of darkness, darkness
it’s not the love you wanted, you wanted
how did you get so cold
you got a heart of darkness, my darkest love

my darkest love

my darling love
my darling love
my darling lo-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-ove
my darling lo-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-ove
oh my darling

you got a heart of darkness, darkness
it’s not the love you wanted, you wanted
how did you get so cold
you got a heart of darkness, my darkest love
Track Name: You I Want
you're bleeding now
freaking out
shine a light
put it out

there's a knock knock knock at your front door
metal scrapes across the floor

you try to run
make it right
see the fear
see the light

of all your choices turned out wrong
noiseless voices carry on

when all your friends and former lovers
won't uncover what you are, what you've done

and oh your blood is dangerous
it's you I want, you I want
oh your blood is dangerous
it's you I want, you I want
on and on, won't be long
on and on, you won't outrun
oh your blood is dangerous
it's you I want, you I want

now all alone
into the night
you feel the air
you turn to ice

like a thunder from the loudest drum
lightning strikes you through the bone

you feel your heart break
wake and shake
try so hard
to get away

when the pressure builds and bubbles up
seconds left till you’re long lost

and meant to meet like star crossed lovers
they'll uncover who you are and what you've done

‘cause oh your blood is dangerous
it's you I want, you I want
oh your blood is dangerous
it's you I want, you I want
on and on, won't be long
on and on, you won't outrun
oh your blood is dangerous
it's you I want, you I want
it's you I want, you I want
it's you I want, you I want
Track Name: Blackest Ice
well it’s cold at night, blackest ice
you’ve been waiting for me to come alive
and you’re feeling just fine, hooked up right
you’ve been falling in love with dim moonlight

and your partner don’t mind, oh she don’t lie
you could feel the fright, all in the eyes
oh no don’t ask why, just keep quiet
you’re falling in love in dim moonlight

and you’ll sell my soul, you’re so terrible
and it’s just not right, in the night
if you want it all, you can have it all
set it all alight, in the night

oh but don't you go leave me for dead my darling
don't you go leave me for dead
oh no, don't you go leave me for dead my darling
don't you go leave me for dead

no more taking it slow, i’m letting go
when you feel cold hands around your throat
no don’t shake it off, just stay close
you got what you want, it’s not enough

you keep hanging on me, love
you keep hanging on me, love
you keep hanging on me, love
and i wanna know, is that enough?

no, you’d sell my soul, you’re so terrible
and it’s just not right, in the ni-i-i-i-ight

oh but don't you go leave me for dead my darling
don't you go leave me for dead, oh no
no, don't you go leave me for dead my darling
don't you go leave me for

dead, dead, dead, dead, oh no
dead, dead, dead, dead, oh no
dead, dead, dead, dead, oh no
dead, ahh

dead, dead, dead, oh no
dead, dead, dead, oh no
dead, dead, dead, oh no
dead, ohh

oh but don't you go leave me for dead my darling
don't you go leave me for dead
oh no, don't you go leave me for dead my darling
don't you go leave me for dead

oh now don't you go leave me for dead my darling
don't you go leave me for dead, oh no
no, don't you go leave me for dead my darling
don't you go leave me for dead
Track Name: No Fun
it’s taken a turn for the worse now
i don’t think you’ll make it through the night, through the night
you treat this love like a curse
yeah well, it’s gonna hold you back again this time, oh

so get a hack saw, simple and winning
i f-f-found a dull blade faking for a knife
just lean back oh make an incision, don’t let them
tell you this decision isn’t black and white, right

ooo, you don’t know, yeah ooo you don’t want this life, oh yeah
and ooo you don’t know, yeah ooo you don’t know that

the night is still young, send me back to the living
there’s a fire in my lungs, is it something i’m missing
and you know you’re no fun, always taking not giving
yeah you know you’re no fun, send me back to the living

now you’ve been wining and dining
taken to the task of averting eyes, like
some politician lying
shaking up the past, show me what you got, right

i got a hack saw, just need a victim
someone to go running through the woods at night, oh
and switch my television
basking in the glow just to kill the moonlight

ooo, you don’t know, yeah ooo you don’t want this life, oh yeah
and ooo you don’t know, yeah ooo you don’t know that

the night is still young, send me back to the living
there’s a fire in my lungs, is it something i’m missing
and you know you’re no fun, always taking not giving
yeah you know you’re no fun, send me back to the living
back to the living, back to the living, yeah

yeah, oh yeah yeah yeah…
Track Name: Chemical
your body took off from the ground
all shook and shaken, on the out
you never thought you would calm down
and it's colder than you've ever known 
slip through the undertow, oh
you blast the speakers all blown out

singing oh, don’t go
you can find me hiding in the radio
and I know
in the back rooms and the ballrooms i’ll stay close

your love, your love is chemical
sounding from the underground
your love, your love’s an animal
honey don’t you let it out
your love, your love is chemical
find me when you get back down
your love, yeah your love is chemical
honey don’t you let it out

your bones break, your heart aches
all past regrets and mistakes
fall off and float into the sound
and it’s something that you never seen
dark blood and dopamine, oh
you know they’re flowing through you now

singing oh, well don’t go
i can’t take the way you’re breaking up so close
and you know
in the darkness i can feel your heart and all

your love, your love is chemical
sounding from the underground
your love, your love’s an animal
honey don’t you let it out
your love, your love is chemical
find me when you get back down
your love, yeah your love is chemical
honey don’t you let it out
Track Name: Gone Gone Gone
well the wind was low, our hands so close, ah ah ah ah ah
and you always hope, it won’t be love, ah ah ah ah ah
when you’re sensing all the chemicals, ah ah ah ah ah
no you never know what hurts the most, ah ah ah ah ah

now your hands are cold, straight to the bone, ah ah ah ah ah
and it’s terrible how it unfolds, ah ah ah ah ah
little moments only i’d recall, ah ah ah ah ah
and the sudden loss of self control, ah ah ah ah ah

why don’t you call me lately
how could you ever hate me
and i’d tear myself in two
for you to see the things you do

and on this morning i will wait
to catch a glimpse of you someday
and in the darkness we will take
we will take off all our clothes

and in the morning we won’t be
anything you coulda dreamed
disappears without a trace
and it’s gone gone gone gone

and i wanted you to understand, all i couldn’t say
not an easy way to comprehend my thoughts anyway
and you sell my soul, my love for you won’t disintegrate
and if all your love won’t wait for me, ah ha, let it fade

why don’t you call me lately
how could you ever hate me
and i’d tear myself in two
for you to see the things you do

and on this morning i will wait
to catch a glimpse of you someday
and in the darkness we will take
we will take off all our clothes

and in the morning we won’t be
anything you coulda dreamed
disappears without a trace
and it’s gone gone gone gone

and your heart, it beats itself to death
and yes, i guess it got to me
Track Name: Into the Night
it was cold when they found you
in the october sunrise
flowers all around you
covering your eyes
and i’ll be alright, no it’s not fine
what the hell did i say
into the light, drive in the night
does it mean anything

oh but lately i’ve been feeling low
don’t you say, you don’t know

well don’t say i didn’t drive
into the night, into the light
oh don’t say i didn’t drive

and your body it breaks, whispers and shakes
like we might meet again
the telephone rings, dances and sings
onto the floor and then
we could stick together, into the ether
darling you lead the way
oh don’t you get so clever, never say never
ask the t-t-time of day

oh but lately i’ve been on my own
don’t you say, you don’t know

well don’t say i didn’t drive
into the night, into the light
oh don’t say i didn’t drive
into the light, into the light
i follow you, oo-oo-oo-oo-oooo
oh i follow you
into the night, get away from the light

hey!
hey!
hey!
hey!

into the night, get away from the light (hey!)
into the night, get away from the light (hey!)
into the night, get away from the light (hey!)
into the night, get away from the light (hey!)

oh don’t say i didn’t drive
into the night, into the light
oh don’t say i didn’t drive
into the light, into the light
i follow you, oo-oo-oo-oo-oooo
oh i follow you
into the night, get away from the light

into the night, get away from the light
into the night, get away from the light
into the night, get away from the light
into the night, oh into the night
Track Name: Hard to Move
well they say the night is the hardest part
when you search yourself in the darkest dark
and you miss the end and you miss the mark
it gets cold out here i know

now it’s been so long since i’ve seen your face
is it months or years, well i could’t say
it all feels the same, and you look the same
with your perfect hair in your perfect frame

and it’s hard to move, and it’s hard to say
that i am not okay

but maybe I believe in something more
can feel it underground, crashing up through the floor
and you just wear me down, you say you want it all
and i can hear it now, you’re crashing through the floor

and now all your days they keep passing by
and your thoughts are lost or just hard to find
and you curse yourself and you curse the sky
well the calendar hung itself

now your voice is gone and the photo fades
through an endless void you disintegrate
it all feels the same, and you look the same
with your perfect hair in your perfect frame

and it's hard to move and it's right to say
that I could be okay

but maybe I believe in something more
can feel it underground, crashing up through the floor
and you just wear me down, you say you want it all
and i can hear it now, you’re crashing through the floor

maybe I believe in something more
can feel it underground, crashing through the floor
you just wear me down, say you want it all
i can feel it now, you’re crashing through the floor

maybe I believe in something more
can feel it underground, crashing up through the floor
and you just wear me down, you say you want it all
and i can hear it now, you’re crashing through the floor
Track Name: Reaper
you’re the reaper
you’re the reaper
you’re the reaper living in my lungs
you say you don’t know
well i feel you growing cold, oh

you’re the reaper
you’re the reaper
you’re the reaper living in my lungs
you say you don’t know
well i feel you growing cold, oh

and i finally found you
i finally finally finally know your name
when the how’s and why’s don’t matter anyway
and you know, you know i saw your face
but something told me that you knew my

heart was pure, and your eyes were
unafraid, ah ah ah
won’t you shake my bones
let your own disintegrate, ah ah ah ah ah

you’re the reaper
you’re the reaper
you’re the reaper living in my lungs
you say you don’t know
well i feel you growing cold, oh

you’re the reaper
you’re the reaper
you’re the reaper living in my lungs
you say you don’t know
well i feel you growing cold, oh

and i found your love
and i found your blood were both the same
getting faster, faster, harder to contain
when all of a sudden i started to fade
but something told me that you knew my

fate was sure, and your hands were
unafraid, ah ah ah
won’t you shake my bones
let your own disintegrate, disintegrate….

woah oh oh…
Track Name: You're Still Here
if you’re still here, hanging round the halls
books untouched, whispers in the walls
i made it clear, that it’s you, not your love still here

you come calling in the night, i don’t mind
if you’re warm and got a light, i won’t hide
so quell your fears, cause it’s you, not your love

i said no, don’t tell me, you’re sorry
i said no, don’t tell me, you’re sorry
i said no, don’t tell me, you’re sorry
i said no, don’t tell me, you’re sorry
oh oh oh oh oh

oh but your tick tock, crooked heart, is out of time
and all your pick pocket, little lines, they ain’t so white
you made it clear, that it’s you, not your love

i said no, don’t tell me, you’re sorry
i said no, don’t tell me, you’re sorry
i said no, don’t tell me, you’re sorry
i said no, don’t tell me, you’re sorry
oh oh oh oh oh
