Track Name: Mario
she said why do you live your life this way?
you fool, you only hurt yourself
my mind it took three tragedies just to break it
you fool, you only hurt yourself

she said, when I come, you come running
she said, I don't care, you're just a little one
she said, when you come, I come running
she said, I don't care, you little liar

what she says, what she does, I don't even care now
what she says, what she does, I don't even understand

she said, when I come, you come running
she said, I don't care, you're just a little one
she said, when you come, I come running
she said, I don't care, you little liar
Track Name: Fold
Oh, you know, back in Pauli Santos
in my broken home, that's where I left my mother dying
on the phone, now everybody's asking me 'bout Rehoboam,
and where he left his Gibson's ashes
Oh no, I'm waiting for control

The fold,
you cut all of your wingbirds
put them in grave holes
where you go they're surely dying

Oh no, I'm waiting for control
'cos now she's got to

taking my eyes out now
I'm an effigy, so distant in my virtues
leaves me so behind now
I'm a prodigy, so let down in my youth
but I won't die here

let it go, you drift away to leave us now, now that's all we know
when summer ends the ground gets cold and clouds with snow,
eyes glaze over limbs they lock around dead bone
I've never met a glacial nature
Oh no, I'm waiting for control

The fold, my body spills wide open, it pours out for you
these hollow trees in which we hide

Oh no, I'm waiting for control
'cos now she's got to
Track Name: Gymnastics
I've been waiting all my life
for you to come around and say; just stop
didn't think I'd need you now, so much
but I can't stand your empty touch

I've been waiting, contemplating about you

you inside my house
you inside my head
I just can't believe we did gymnastics in the 70's

let your conscience slip away
we'll see that you don't need that anyway
fail again, as you watch me slip away
so I see you bleeding out
can you feel my pain?
