Track Name: Quailskin - Knowe You
I'm wondering who I have to be
To get rid of all my history.
Can't make such a fuss over what I've seen.
I can't let it get the best of me.

And it seems that if the whole world knows you, the whole word owes you.

If ever a body bends and breaks, folds into itself.
It's part of the risk you have to take. Take it for yourself.
Examine the ones who are stuck in place. They can't get away.
They'll tell you the same thing I would say, would say, would say

It seems that if the whole world knows you, the whole world owes you.
Track Name: Quailskin - Guilt Nap
Woke up this morning with a pain in my face,
had to walk around the block in the pouring rain
just to open up my eyes.
When you go to sleep wondering if you'll find a way
to erase all the memories from your brain, and you pray
for the first time in a while,

This is not the way to behave.
This is more a way to the grave.

You know that everyone you know would be ashamed
if they knew the things you did when they went away.
So, you keep them to yourself.
A lie can be better than the truth coming out.
It's funny how we want honest words aloud.
They cut harder than the fake.

This is not the way to behave.
This is more a way to the grave.
Track Name: Quailskin - Can't Change a Thing
I couldn't ask for a way
For you to show me
Your only
Reason to keep me away
So you hold it
Back

There's something going on here
And I can't change a thing.

For a second I thought you'd retain
All of the deadweight
You tried to
Carry, but it was a strain.
So, you gave it
Back.

There's something going on here
And I can't change a thing.
Track Name: Quailskin - Hollywood Affair
Words she never spoke were never understood.
The thoughts she did explain they were never as good.
And every time she spoke I'd say
"I've heard it before a million different ways, but how I love to be in love with you."

Sitting in her throne with a vacant stare,
Ingesting chips and a Hollywood affair.

Take everything.
Out of my mouth and make something.
Something you wouldn't have thought on your own.
I'll carry your soul.
Tell me your hopes and dreams.
And hope that I might give you something.
Something you wouldn't have gotten on your own.
I'll build you a brand new home.

Sitting in her throne with a vacant stare,
Ingesting chips and a Hollywood affair.
