Track Name: Chuvaque - With Bells On
there's a mask on the table
goblets with guests on the brain
an invitation to the crew
ashtray dresses and the second guessing
turned to stone at the blessing
forward-thinking and amused

i creep like a crawling servant
i am your serpent
i speak of the recluse

hold them to that double standard
a far cry from roofs of stone
count yourselves among the few
ashtray dresses and the second blessing
makes no claim at confession
i threw up right on my shoes

i creep like a crawling servant
i am your serpent
i speak without a muse
Track Name: Curtains - Note to Self
i could follow the trail of crumbs
but never reach home
i could run towards the setting sun
and still be lost
i can barely even find the shadow
cast by these bones
who knows how long it will take
for this heart to defrost

i can look to the stars
and ask any question i could think of
i could sit and i could wait
for its cold reply
i can spit and i can curse
at all the heavens like it drinks blood
but i'll never get an answer to my plaintive cries

it comes with time
it comes with time
it comes with time
Track Name: Chuvaque - River's Edge
something wicked this way comes
as i walk past the dogs and the filth
and the bums
("It Was A Good Day")

face down by the river's edge
i want to be written on the wall
of a bathroom stall
violent femmes stuck in my head

calling on you to keep my faith
every decision already been made
the look in a stranger's eyes was true
"enjoy it all now, it'll happen to you"

don't look now 'cause everything changes
i'll see you when i say goodbye

face down by the river's edge
i want to be written on the wall of a bathroom stall
violent films stuck in my head
Track Name: Curtains - Blood and Rust
we can build anything you've dreamed of
those circuits bend and scream and leak blood
sweet talk your symmetry
abolish any limits we shall find

i'd love to organize your time

break down
fall apart
face down
all the parts are rusting
nothing's left to salvage anymore

this city crumbles like a last hope
there are no trains that i can catch home
burn down your monuments
and play all of those songs you've written blind

i'd love to organize your time

break down
fall apart
face down
all the parts are rusting
nothing's left to salvage anymore
Track Name: Chuvaque - Alligators in Ukraine
i used to hit on the hallways
open up a vein or two
everybody wants to be new
it's all so easy when you've got no excuse
everybody wants to be new

i used to sleep in the doorways
i'd dream of reptiles and shoes
and when the smell of you faded
i knew that i was into you
'cause everybody wants to be true
Track Name: Curtains - Seashore Lights
walk down the
seashore and
follow the
lights home i
won't be there
anymore i
won't be there
anymore

draw a blank in pen
and tack it to your wall
at night convince yourself
there's footsteps in the hall
converse with all the shadows
about the things you saw
then realize
there's nothing there
that will respond at all

walk down the
seashore and
follow the
lights home i
won't be there
anymore i
won't be there
anymore
Track Name: Curtains - Something Knew
early morning
watch the sun come up
my limbs are
stiff from laying still and staring
silent ceiling
summon strength to search
for something new
something i knew
something i've known

sharpen knives
and survey scenes of summers slipping
smoke your cigarettes
and simmer
seethe at sunset
summon strength to smile
at someone new
someone i knew
someone i've known

you should take control of time
before it takes its toll
and turns you old

late at night
i lie awake
to keep these memories at bay
i long to leave
depart from you
i'll summon strength
to search for something new
something new
something knew
Track Name: Chuvaque - A Different Landscape
разливайте
i'm in the money
there's more than enough to come around
do i make you nervous?
you look somewhat puzzled
i'm only trying to make
the most out of my time
give us a drink
we are so willing
there's bandits and thieves who hate themselves
and when i'm notice that
i'm always in a hurry
even i am victim
limits of decay

there's a person at my table
i am loath to let him go
he has promises to make to me
there is much he does not know
let your heart beat on the mountain
put your shoulder on my head
when you find yourself what i have always wanted
remember how we broke this bread
