Track Name: You Maintain the Stain
You maintain the stain
I’ll let go of everything
You made a mess
working on a gag reflex

Finding excuses
Not to do this
Full of shit it sure fools me

You won't look me in the eye
You're afraid I see you
You can't hide
Your things cast a light

You maintain the stain
I let go of everything
You made a mess
working on a gag reflex

You forgetful thing
You get so mean
Changing my memories
Hold this over me

You won't look me in the eye
You're afraid I see you
You can't hide
Your things cast a light
Do you like this it's new
I see through you
I see right through
I see all of it
The light on your face

When you find the wound
It's deep in you
When you find the source
what can you do
I have to look up to you
I love to look down on you
I blame all the stains on you
You made a mess
It's what you do
Track Name: Cut It Open
Cut it open
Cut me out

Turn away from the pale glow
The unnatural light
Place the cup against your cheek
and shut your eyes

Cut it open
Cut me out
