Krist Janne I actually thought this was an album by another New Faces, from Saarbrucken Germany. I - - wish it was by them.

*AVAILABLE IN DIGITAL STORES APRIL 2, 2013*

It’s been over four years since the boys from New Faces released their debut album, Two Years, to widespread acclaim among fans and critics in the Pacific Northwest. After just one album – followed by a frenzy of DIY touring, Seattle hipster buzz and industry attention – 2009 saw the boys abruptly break up at a time when their average age was just 18.

Two Years, first released in 2008 by Seattle’s Loveless Records, has since disappeared entirely from the shelves. Meanwhile, the band’s feverishly anticipated second album, recorded but unreleased, has never seen the light of day.

Until now…

Ana-Them Records and New Faces are proud to present this comprehensive reissue package --Two Years + The Lost Sessions – including the original Two Years album in its entirety plus 8 never-heard-before songs intended for the band’s second album, “the lost sessions.”

We hope you enjoy.

Track Name: Impulse
I WANT IT TO END, BUT I'LL COME RUNNING BACK
I WISH IT WOULD END, BUT I'LL COME RUNNING BACK
I CANNOT LET GO FROM THE THOUGHT OF HAVING YOU
I CANNOT LET GO FROM THE THOUGHT OF ME AND YOU
WE LOOK OUT OF PLACE, BUT I DON'T CARE ABOUT THAT
YOU DON'T SHOW SO MUCH AND SO I DON'T KNOW WHAT YOU THINK
GIVE ME A SIGN SO I CAN UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU WANT
JUST LET ME KNOW HOW FAR YOU'RE PLANNING THIS TO GO

CHORUS

WELL IT'S NOT JUST CONVERSATION; CAN'T YOU SEE IT'S MOTIVATED?
THAT IMPULSE DRAWS US TO BE CLOSER
THEN WHAT ARE WE SUPPOSED TO DO WITH IT NOW
I DON'T UNDERSTAND AND YOU KNOW WHAT
I DON'T THINK ANYBODY REALLY DOES
NEITHER OF US KNOW WHAT WE ARE OR KNOW WHAT WE WANT
BUT THAT'S WHAT IT'S ABOUT

IS IT A GAME OF HAVING FEELING ON A WHIM?
I THINK IT'S A GAME, A GAME BETWEEN ME AND THEM
DO WHAT YOU LIKE 'CAUSE I DON'T KNOW WHAT I REALLY WANT
AND IN THE END YOU WON'T DENY WHAT'S IN YOUR VERY MIND

CHORUS
Track Name: Melts Like Ice
YOU MELT LIKE ICE IN MY GLASS 'CAUSE I KNOW ICE JUST CANNOT LAST
AND IT'S ALWAYS BEEN THIS WAY, ONE PIECE OF ICE JUST MELTS INTO THE REST
THAT DAY THE LOVE WAS IN YOUR EYES BUT NOT IN MINE
YOU HINT AND YEARN, YOU'LL TWIST AND TURN FOR ME BUT I CAN'T SEE BECAUSE I'M BLIND
TO ALL THE THINGS THAT DON'T ATTRACT ME AND TO ALL THOSE THINGS THAT SHOULD
IT MIGHT SOUND STUPID BUT I DON'T HAVE FEELING FOR ALL THE THINGS THAT I CAN'T FEEL

CHORUS:

YOU DON'T MOVE ME
YOU DON'T THRILL ME
IT'S TOO EASY
I DON'T WANT YOU
BECAUSE YOU WANT ME
YOU'RE TOO EASY
IN MANY WAYS BEING HERE IS LIKE A PARADOX OF FATE
'CAUSE WHAT WE WANT AND WHAT WE CRAVE WE CAN'T GET, OH WE'LL NEVER GET
IF EVERYTHING IS REVEALED WELL THEN IT'S DONE
WHERE'S THE SUBTLETY?
WHERE'S THE CHASE AND WHERE'S THE FIGHT?
SIMPLICITY MAKES MEDIOCRITY ALL RIGHT

CHORUS

YOU MELT LIKE ICE BUT I DON'T WANT YOU I WANT HER, THE ELUSIVE ONE
I ONLY WANT WHAT I CAN'T GET, SITTING ON ROOFS IS WHEN I FALL IN LOVE
IT GETS SO OLD ALWAYS DOING WHAT I’M TOLD -- WHERE'S THE SPARK?
WHERE'S THE DANGER?
OH THERE'S NO DRIVE, NO DESIRE WHEN YOU MELT LIKE ICE
Track Name: Across The City
JUST IN FROM A NIGHT OF PAIN, HER HOPEFUL EVENING TURNED TO SHAME
AND COLLAPSING SHE FEELS THAT SHE'S THE ONLY ONE WHO'S LONELY
SHE TRIED BUT SHE FELT SHOVED WHEN TRYING TO TALK WITH THE ONE SHE LOVED
AND NOW SHE CRIES AND SAYS ALOUD "I CAN'T FIND LOVE!"
IT'S A GAME BUT SHE DOESN'T KNOW, IT'S A GAME THAT SHE CAN CONTROL
AND IF SHE TRIED ONCE SHE WOULD FIND THAT IT'S ALL IN HER OWN MIND

CHORUS:
HER EYES WERE ROOTED IN THE WRONG
A YOUNG HEART PINING FAR TOO LONG
ACROSS THE CITY SLEEPS A BOY WHO DREAMS OF GUILT 'CAUSE HE
FELT HE WAS CRUEL WHEN TALKING TO SOMEONE NOW COLLAPSING
IT'S A GAME BUT HE DOESN'T KNOW
IT'S A GAME THAT HE CAN CONTROL
AND IF HE TRIED ONCE HE WOULD FIND THAT IT'S ALL IN HIS OWN MIND

THEIR EYES WERE ROOTED IN THE WRONG, YOUNG HEARTS PINING FAR TOO LONG
THEY THOUGHT THEY WERE CONTROLLED BY THEIR SAD SONGS
BUT YOUNG HEARTS DISCOVERED THEY WERE WRONG
Track Name: Ms. Kiss Kiss Bang Bang
YOU WALK BY ASSURED BUT YOU’RE CURIOUS
YOU KNOW SOME THINGS BUT YOU’RE RECKLESS
GO TO EVERYONE THAT YOU THINK YOU KNOW
AND TALK TOO MUCH YOU TALK TOO MUCH

BRIDGE:
ANYTIME AND ANYPLACE YOU’RE ALWAYS IN A PERSON’S FACE
BUT THEY DON’T SEEM TO KNOW
ACTING LIKE YOU’RE THEIR BEST FRIEND
IT CANCELS OUT THE FACT THAT YOU ANNOY THEM ALL TO DEATH

WALK LOVE HATE LIE ALL IN A WEEKEND’S EYE
LEAD ON LAY OFF THEY CRY YOU SIGH
RIGHT HERE RIGHT NOW, NOW IS YOUR BRIGHTEST DAY
I HATE TO SAY BUT I FEEL THE SAME WAY

BRIDGE

CHORUS:
BECAUSE YOU ARE MS. KISS KISS BANG BANG
THE KISS ENTICES ALL TO JOIN
AND THEN THEY SEE YOUR GUN BANG BANG
YOU SHOOT THEM DOWN JUST ‘CAUSE YOU CAN

BRIDGE

CHORUS
Track Name: You To Me
YOU TO ME, TO ME, YOU'RE LYING FROM THE START TO ME, TO ME
YOU'RE TWISTING UP YOUR HEART ON ME, ON ME
YOU'RE CHANGING EVERY WEEK ON ME IN WHAT YOU SEEK
AND I CAN'T TALK TO YOU 'CAUSE SOMETHING'S CAUGHT MY TONGUE
IT'S ME, NOT YOU, BUT IF I WAS WITH ANYONE BUT YOU
THEN I WOULD SPEAK MY MIND IN FULL -- SO YEAH, IT'S YOU
THEM TO ME, TO ME
THEY’RE NAGGING AT MY DREAM, THE DREAM
THEY’RE GETTING IN MY HEAD AND THEY WANT YOU TO LEAVE ME
WE NEVER SAID IT WOULD BE EASY,
THEY DIDN’T SAY IT WOULD BE EASY
I NEVER SAID IT WOULD BE EASY
DON'T BE SURPRISED IT'S NOT THAT EASY
AND NOW I FEEL HOT AND COLD IN WHAT I'M TOLD
BUT IF IT WASN’T LIKE THIS THEN WE'D HAVE NOTHING
Track Name: Nothing Is Chic (If The Scenesters Don't Rave On)
HE'S THE ONE YOU'D LIKE TO MEET ON SIGHT, HE'S THE CONFIDENT STRANGER
WALKS WITH COOL POISE, TALKS WITH JUST THE SAME, TALKS OF FLEXIBLE INVITES
HE'S THE ONE WHOSE STYLE IS A RUNNING THEME, IT'S A PATH TO THE COOL LIFE
ALWAYS ON THE MAKE, ALWAYS MAKING FRIENDS, HE'S A JUGGLER OF TRENDS
CHORUS:
HE'S GOT ONE FOOT BACK AND ONE FOOT FORWARD, WARM EMBRACE AND THEN THE COLD SHOULDER
HE'S A MASTER AT SHIFTING AND SHAPING SITUATIONS FOR PERSONAL GAIN

IT'S LIKE A ROLLING DICE ON A TABLE TOP, WHICH END WILL HE DROP?
HE'S GOT CARDS HE'S GOT MANY CARDS TO PLAY, OR TO SAVE THEM FOR LATER
DOING THINGS I NEVER THOUGHT WERE RIGHT, BUT CHARISMA IT FOLDS ME
AND IT ALWAYS SOUNDS LIKE THE GREATEST THING, WHEN IT'S COMING FROM HIS MOUTH
CHORUS
I ALWAYS THINK THAT HE'S NOT VERY TRUTHFUL
BUT ALL OF HIS SKILLS THEY SURE MAKE HIM USEFUL
AND I NEED SOMEONE WITH THAT POISE, WITH THE COOL LIFE
TO GUIDE ME TO SHOW ME THE THINGS THAT I SHOULD LIKE
‘CAUSE WHAT IS THE STYLE WHEN NO ONE IS STYLISH?
AND WHAT IS THE LOOK WHEN NOBODY LOOKS LIKE IT?
WHAT THINGS ARE IN IF THERE'S NO ONE TO SAY SO?
NOTHING IS CHIC IF THE SCENESTERS DON'T RAVE ON
THE WORLD NEEDS ITS TRENDSETTERS, PUSHERS OF STYLE, ITS CONFIDENT STRANGERS ITS NEW WAVE DISCIPLES
TO SET WHAT IS RIGHT SO THAT OTHERS DEFY IT, I NEED YOU I NEED YOU JUST SO I FEEL RIGHT
Track Name: Cracks
IT ONLY STINGS IF YOU LET IT STING, IT ONLY HURTS IF YOU MAKE IT HURT
IF OUT OF SIGHT THEN IT'S OUT OF MIND, SO WHY SHOULD THEY DEMAND WE STOP IT?
THEY'RE ONLY LINES ON MY FACE
THEY'RE ONLY FAULTS I CAN'T ERASE
THEY'RE ONLY CRACKS IN AN ICE SHEET
THEY’RE ONLY CRACKS IN AN ICE SHEET
THEY'RE ONLY FACTS THAT EXPERTS SPEAK
THEY'RE ONLY FACTS THAT EXPERTS SPEAK

BUT YOU AND I WE'VE OUR OWN FACTS, OUR CRACKS AND OUR WARNING SIGNS
SO LET THE ICE MELT THE SEAS COLLIDE, IT'S HARD ENOUGH JUST TO GET BY
THEY'RE ONLY WORDS JUST A LITTLE LIE
THEY'RE ONLY WORDS THAT MADE YOU CRY
THEY'RE ONLY THINGS THAT I DON'T NEED, ONLY WANTS THEY'RE NOT FOR ME
THEY'RE ONLY SIGNS THAT I'D LIKE TO READ, THEY'RE ONLY WORDS WITHOUT MEANING
IT ONLY STINGS IF YOU MAKE IT STING, IT ONLY CALLS IF YOU HEAR IT RING
IT'S JUST THE SOUND OF MY OWN HEART, BEATING FAR TOO FAST THAT'S ALL
Track Name: Stop Saying Those Stupid Words
I GET A BIT MIXED UP, BUT I'LL FIND MY WAY NEXT DAY
HURTS THE THINGS I DO, HURTS MY HOPE WITH YOU
CHORUS:
BUT STOP SAYING THOSE STUPID WORDS
YOU'RE WANTED, YOU MUST LEARN
YOU'RE MUCH OLDER THAN LAST SUMMER
SO STOP SAYING THOSE STUPID WORDS

WOULD YOU WALK WITH ME
OR SIT DOWN BY A SUMMER TREE
LOSE OUR NEGATIVITY, JUST KEEP HUMANITY

CHORUS
Track Name: She's Like The Snow
WALKED ALL OVER THE RAINY DAY AND TALKED ABOUT HOW WE'RE THE SAME
ABOUT ALIBIS, EXCUSES, SHAME
HOW WE HATED LOVE AND MUST REFRAIN
I SAID LET'S WAIT THE TIME'S NOT RIGHT TODAY, I'M STRUGGLING TO FIND MY WAY
THESE CLOUDS THEY DRAG ME DOWN YOU SEE, IT'S RAINING, BUT I WANT SPRING
I CAN'T BELIEVE THE THINGS THAT SHE BELIEVES, SHE SCARES ME
ALL THE MORALS SHE BRINGS WITH HER THEY MAKE NO SENSE TO ME THEY'RE CRAZY
I CAN'T BELIEVE THE THINGS SHE BELIEVES YOU KNOW IT INTIMIDATES AND TAUNTS ME
AND IT'S ALWAYS LIKE THIS, IT'S ALWAYS THAT YOU CAN'T GET WHAT YOU WANT

CHORUS:

SHE'S LIKE THE SNOW IN ALL HER WAYS SHINING BRIGHT PUTS ME INTO A DAZE
AND I CAN'T KEEP MY EYES FREE SO KILL ME
AND LIKE EVERY GOOD THING ON THIS EARTH
ALL I WANT RIGHT NOW IT IS HER, BUT WE'RE IN THESE DIFFERENT WORLDS, IT'S LIKE BLACK AND WHITE

CHORUS
Track Name: My Alarm
I HAD AN ARGUMENT TODAY, SOMEONE DIDN'T SEE MY WAY
BUT MY WAY'S NOT THE ONE WITH SIGHT YOU MUST KNOW I’VE GOT NO RIGHT
TO COME HERE TELLING YOU YOU'RE WRONG TELLING YOU PROBLEMS OF MINE
THOSE PROBLEMS MAY MATTER A BIT, BUT NOT THAT MUCH

BRIDGE:
DEEP INSIDE THE HEAD THE MIND IS SO CONFUSED, IT'S SO DESPERATE
ACTING LIKE IT KNOWS IT ALL THAT'S A STUPID LIE, JUST A REFLEX

WELL THE SUN IS SHINING OVERHEAD, BUT CLOUDS ARE SOON TO TAKE FROM YOU
YOUR SKIES OF BLUE AWAY, THEN WHERE'D YOUR LIGHT GO?
I DON'T WANT TO FEEL MUCH ANYMORE, 'CAUSE FEELING ALWAYS MAKES YOU CARE
SO LET'S JUST CO-EXIST WITH THIS, THAT INTERACTION BADLY MISSED

CHORUS

YOU'RE THE ONE WHO SHOULD BE POINTING FINGERS, DON'T YOU SEE? BUT YOU'RE TOO KIND
SOMEDAY THIS ALARM OF MINE MIGHT FINALLY STOP ITS BEEPING BUT IT'S NOT LIKELY
GO, GO LEAVE MY ALARM

SO HERE WE ARE AND TIME HAS PASSED, I'M TRYING HARD TO ERASE THAT PAST
BUT I DON'T FEEL MUCH DIFFERENT NOW THAN I DID I DON'T KNOW HOW

BRIDGE

CHORUS
Track Name: End Of A Time
IT'S NOT THE SAME ANYMORE, DAYS OF OLD ARE DAYS OF OLD
THERE'S NOT THE TASTE OF NOVELTY IN MY MOUTH, IT'S GONE FROM ME
WHILE IT'S THE END OF A TIME
IT'S THE START OF A NEW KIND OF LIFE
AND WEARILY WE MOVE ON, THROUGH IT ALL THROUGH IT ALL

CHORUS:
MY FEELING’S NOT QUITE SO STRONG, SOMETHING SEEMS SO AWFULLY WRONG
BUT WHILE PESSIMISTS PREDICT APOCALYPSE THERE IS SOME YOUNG GIRL GETTING HER FIRST KISS

I TURNED AROUND, SAW THE FROWN SAW THE APATHETIC FACE OF THIS TOWN
TURN AWAY, ONLY SAY THAT IT HATES AND DISLIKES AND COMPLAINS
BUT WHILE IT'S TRUE APATHY IS THE MOST NATURAL SUMMARY
ALL THE THRILLS THEY PULSE STILL IN THE MIDDLE OF THAT TOWN

CHORUS

BUT IN THESE ARMS I AM FREE
I AM SURE THAT I KNOW AT LEAST ONE THING
THAT THESE ARMS CARE FOR ME
WHETHER I CARE FOR THEM OR FOR SHE
YEAH IT'S THE END OF A TIME
IT'S THE START OF A NEW KIND OF LIFE
IT'S THE END OF A TIME

12. TWO YEARS
THE NEW KIDS ALL STAND ROUND
THEIR FACES YOUNG THEIR NEW DAYS JUST BEGUN
THE GIRL WITH GENTLE EYES WILL HAVE NO CHOICE SHE’LL BE THE FIRST TO GO
FROM PAST LIFE PAST FRIENDS SHE IS GONE
PRESSURE MAKES HER DO ANYTHING
PRESSURE MAKES CLIQUES, DISTORTS THE MIND INSIDE A THOUGHTFUL HEAD

CHORUS:
DON’T TAKE WHAT I HAVE TO SAY
WITH CONSEQUENCE IT’S JUST ME TODAY
I DON’T KNOW WHAT I WANT
BUT NEITHER DO YOU
IT’S THIS TIME OF YEAR AGAIN
OUTSIDE IS SO COLD BUT SO PRETTY TOO
WE ALL HUDDLE ‘ROUND BUT WE’VE ALL GOT DIFFERENT FEELINGS IN OUR VEINS
HOW CAN ONE PERSON TELL WHAT’S RUNNING RAMPANT IN ANOTHER’S WORLD?
WHEN EVERYONE HIDES WHAT THEY ARE IT’S HARD FOR ME TO KNOW

CHORUS

WE WALKED DOWN THAT SAME OLD STAIRWAY FOR TWO YEARS
NOW WE’RE OLDER LIFE’S BEEN SOBERED BUT WE’RE STILL FRIENDS
THINGS YOU SAY WON’T GO AWAY THEY’LL ALWAYS STAY
THEY’LL ALWAYS STAY

CHORUS

OR MAYBE YOU DO
Track Name: Two Years (The Lost Sessions)
THE NEW KIDS ALL STAND ROUND
THEIR FACES YOUNG THEIR NEW DAYS JUST BEGUN
THE GIRL WITH GENTLE EYES WILL HAVE NO CHOICE SHE’LL BE THE FIRST TO GO
FROM PAST LIFE PAST FRIENDS SHE IS GONE
PRESSURE MAKES HER DO ANYTHING
PRESSURE MAKES CLIQUES, DISTORTS THE MIND INSIDE A THOUGHTFUL HEAD

CHORUS:
DON’T TAKE WHAT I HAVE TO SAY
WITH CONSEQUENCE IT’S JUST ME TODAY
I DON’T KNOW WHAT I WANT
BUT NEITHER DO YOU
IT’S THIS TIME OF YEAR AGAIN
OUTSIDE IS SO COLD BUT SO PRETTY TOO
WE ALL HUDDLE ‘ROUND BUT WE’VE ALL GOT DIFFERENT FEELINGS IN OUR VEINS
HOW CAN ONE PERSON TELL WHAT’S RUNNING RAMPANT IN ANOTHER’S WORLD?
WHEN EVERYONE HIDES WHAT THEY ARE IT’S HARD FOR ME TO KNOW

CHORUS

WE WALKED DOWN THAT SAME OLD STAIRWAY FOR TWO YEARS
NOW WE’RE OLDER LIFE’S BEEN SOBERED BUT WE’RE STILL FRIENDS
THINGS YOU SAY WON’T GO AWAY THEY’LL ALWAYS STAY
THEY’LL ALWAYS STAY

CHORUS

OR MAYBE YOU DO
Track Name: Captain's Log (The Lost Sessions)
CHORUS:

TALK TALK ALL SO FAST
BUT YOU CAN NEVER MAKE THAT LAST
TIME GOES BY SO QUICK
BUT DON’T YOU EVER STOP TO THINK?
(REPEATS)

WHAT DO YOU SAY
WHEN THERE’S NOTHING LEFT TO SAY?
WHAT DO YOU DO WHEN YOU’VE DONE ALL YOU CAN?
WHAT DO I WRITE, WHEN I’VE GOT NOTHING TO WRITE ABOUT?
DO THEY CARE TO LISTEN TO MY WORDS?

CHORUS
Track Name: Starlets Of The Scene (The Lost Sessions)
ALL THE EYES OF PEOPLE ON THE SIDEWALKS THEY START TO STARE
AS FAST-APPROACHING SOCIALITES STRUT STYLISHLY THEIR WAY
AND FROM THIS CROWD I SEE THE GIRL THAT WON’T GIVE ALL THE FOOLS HER NAME
SHE WALKS WITH CLASS PASSED DOWN FROM ALL THE STARLETS OF THE SCENE THAT CAME BEFORE
BUT I DON’T CARE

CHORUS:

I KNOW THAT YOU’RE THE ONE
THAT I CAN’T GET ALONE
YOU FLY SO OUT OF REACH
BUT YOU’RE ON MY MIND
I KNOW THAT YOU’RE THE ONE
THAT PLAYS THESE GAMES FOR FUN
AND YOU’RE NO GOOD FOR ME
BUT I’LL STICK AROUND TO SEE

OUTSIDE DOWN THE STREET REVELERS OF AFTER-HOURS GLARE
AT EXCLUSIVE-ITES ON THE LAWN THAT KILL THEIR INTELLECTUAL AFFAIR
BECAUSE THE STARLETS PLAY FOR FUN IT’S ALL A GAME FOR THEM IT’S JUST A THRILL
AND THOUGH MY HEART WON’T SYMPATHIZE WITH ALL THEIR SULTRY EYES
I DARE TO SIT AND STARE

CHORUS

CHORUS
Track Name: Your Precious World Is Enough (The Lost Sessions)
HER DAY STARTS BRIGHTLY AS THE SUN SHINES COURTEOUSLY DOWN ON A SPOTLESS ROOM
SHE’S BORED WITH BEING KEPT IN DOORS, WITH SO MUCH GOING OUTSIDE
SO SHE SITS IN HER CHAIR WITH HER HEADPHONES ON
DREAMING OF A WORLD SO FAR AWAY FROM HOME
AND SLOWLY WITHOUT THOUGHT, A SMALL INFATUATION GROWS
SHE’S SMITTEN WITH THE SULTRY CURSED THING SHE HARDLY KNOWS
AFTER ALL THE TRIALS OF A DAY AT CLASS
SHE PLEADS, SHE BARGAINS FOR HER PLIGHT TO GO OUT IN THE NIGHT
SHE RUNS, THRILLED AND BRIGHT WITH LIFE, TO NOISES ON THE STAGE
AND THERE STANDING SO ALONE HER FEELINGS START TO CHANGE
BECAUSE THOSE YOUNG MEN SHE HELD SO DEAR
THEY DON’T CARE ABOUT THEIR CRAFT THEY’RE BUSY CHATTING GIRLS TO BEDS WITH THEIR BEER
SO DON’T TANGLE INNOCENCE WITH DESPERATE LUST
YOU DON’T NEED THEIR CRAZY WORLD
YOUR PRECIOUS WORLD IS ENOUGH
Track Name: Last Refrain (The Lost Sessions)
VERSE:

WE NEVER DID THE THINGS WE SAID WE’D DO
I FOUND THAT LIST TODAY
ALL THE PEOPLE ALL THOSE THINGS WE SAID, THEY ALL FADED AWAY
BUT I STILL REMEMBER WELL THAT APRIL DAY IT ALL SEEMED SO IN REACH
BUT NOW THE APPLE OF MY EYE HAS CHANGED AT LEAST AS FAR AS I CAN SEE

CHORUS:

YOU MEANT SO MUCH SAYING WORDS I DON’T EVEN TRUST
BUT NOW THOSE WORDS THEY ARE WRONG
BECAUSE THE SPARK THE SPARK’S BEEN SLAIN

WHAT’D YOU WANT, WHAT’D YOU WANT FROM ME
YOU WANT TO KISS MAKE UP
WELL I DISAGREE
SEE I’VE THOUGHT CAREFULLY AND I DON’T THINK WE SHOULD TRY THAT BAD REMEDY
IT WAS A SILLY THING AND NOT LOGICAL, A GREAT, TERRIBLE DREAM
INFATUATION WAS NOT GOOD TO USE AS THE BASE TO EVERYTHING

CHORUS
VERSE

HERE’S YOUR LAST REFRAIN (REPEATS)

CHORUS
VERSE
Track Name: Lackey (The Lost Sessions)
COBWEBS AND DUST ON YOUR CROWN
YOU ALWAYS HAD TO BE THE KING AT EVERYTHING
AND YOUR LACKIES TAKE THE THRASHINGS FOR ALL THAT YOU’VE DONE
YOU’RE NOT A PRETTY SIGHT THESE DAYS HANGING AROUND AND AROUND
BUT ONE TIME YOU RULED US ALL WITH PERFECT HAIR AND SPOTLESS WEAR
WE WERE UNDER YOUR THUMB YOUR SPELL
IT WAS SO EASY FOR YOU TO GET WHAT YOU LOVED WHEN ATTENTION WAS LIKE BLACK GOLD
YOU HAD IT ALL
SO I HATED YOU
DO YOU REMEMBER ALL THE GIRLS THAT FELL DYING JUST TO RUN THEIR HANDS THROUGH YOUR HAIR GEL
YOU WERE ALL THE RAGE YOU WERE THE STATUS QUO OF POPULAR IDOLATRY AND WHAT A SHOW
IT WAS A CIRCUS THEN OF FEAR AND LOVE WHILE EVERYONE WAS DESPERATE JUST TO NOT GET PUSHED AND SHOVED
BUT ALL YOUR BEAUTIFUL MEMORIES
ARE THE MEMORIES I NEVER HAD

SO DON’T USE ME TO AUGMENT YOUR PRIDE
‘CAUSE IT’S GONE FROM YOU NOT ON YOUR SIDE
NOW WE’VE MOVED ON FROM OLDER DAYS
YOUR TIMES ARE GONE
AND NOW ALL I SEE IS NARCISSUS
YOU LOOK SADLY AT THE POOL OF YOUR DREAMS
AND IT’S CLOUDY
Track Name: Ides Of March (The Lost Sessions)
I WATCHED THE RAIN IT COOLED ME OFF
THE INK BLED FROM THE PEN
TO THINK OF THIS, IT WAS SO QUICK, THE DEATH, THE SPLIT, THE END
IT’S THE IDES THE IDES OF MARCH THAT’S GOT US IN A BEND
I WATCHED THE RAIN WITHOUT A SAY OF HOW OR WHY OR WHEN
I WATCHED THE SKIES DARKEN SLOW WHILE WE ALL MOCKED AND LAUGHED
WITH GLOSSY SMILES HUNG UP FOR SHOW THERE’D BE NO TURNING BACK

CHORUS:
AND YOU CHANGE LIKE TIDES I CAN’T TELL WHAT YOU’LL DO
YOU CONTRADICT SO MUCH MARCH, WHO NEEDS YOU?
IT WAS DARK WITH LIGHTS SO DIM AND NO ONE LOOKED THE SAME
I HEARD THE FEAR INSIDE YOUR VOICE AND I KNEW YOUR TRUE NAME
CAUSE IT’S THE IDES THE IDES OF MARCH THAT’S GOT US SO INANE
THE VIBE WAS OFF AND WE GOT CAUGHT LOST IN HUNTING GAMES
CHORUS
AND WE’RE LOST IN A FIELD
CAIN LURKS IN OUR PLOWS
WITH LIGHTS OUT IN THIS HOUSE
OUR HEARTS, MINDS, SOULS WILL TURN BLACK
Track Name: Fatalist (The Lost Sessions)
I CAN SEE YOUR LIPS MOVE SO FAST, YOUR FACE INFLECT
JUST WHAT YOU’RE SAYING TO ME
I CAN SEE YOUR HANDS WAVE VIOLENT AS YOU MAKE YOUR POINT
BUT I CAN’T HEAR, ‘CAUSE I DON’T CARE
SO IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR SHORT-TERM HEARTFELT SYMPATHY
FIND SOMEONE ELSE
BECAUSE I’VE ALWAYS HAD A BIT OF A PROBLEM WITH HONESTY
ESPECIALLY IF THE THINGS YOU’RE ASKING ARE EMPTY

I CAN SEE THE CROWDS MAKE BUSY IN THE MORNING SUN
THEY MINGLE IN PERFECT LINES OF OBLIVION
AND I CAN SEE THEIR LIPS MOVE SO FAST THEIR FACES BRIGHT
WITH MANUFACTURED DELIGHT AT THE TV SCREENS
SO IF YOU’RE LOOKING FOR SHORT-TERM FEELINGS OF SECURITY
JUST PAINT THE DARK HEADLINES BRIGHT WITH SUNSHINE
BUT WHEN YOU’VE SUSPENDED TRUTH SO LONG IT SNAPS
THEN YOU’LL SEE THE GLOOM SEEP AND ME WINK
‘CAUSE I’M THE FATALIST
