Track Name: new sentiment - nobodys nobody
the wind knows that nobodys listening
when she cries out that she is alone
she'd as soon blow away and go drifting
as to fall on deaf ears cold as stone
so i'll sing my song in the same way
though the wind she cries for whats true
nobody ever cried for anybody
the way i cried for you

and now i'm nobody's nobody
i never was or worse
to be somebody's somebody
you have to be somebody first

when youre broken down and abandoned
you cant even rise from your bed
the wind she lifts the leaves from the branches
but i cant even lift my own head

and now i'm nobody's nobody
i never was or worse
to be somebody's somebody
you have to be somebody first
Track Name: new sentiment - baptized in the name of satan
the trees yield no fruit
and the vines are bare
and i know why
when i see you lying there
underneath them
your powers
i dont believe them

and you lead me down
to the river
the grass dies in your path
evil delivers
the reason
your powers
i dont believe them

and i let you hold my head beneath the water
in the name of your unholy father
who offers
your freedom
your powers
i dont believe them
Track Name: new sentiment - new decay
a lover a loser and a jumper of trains
and a girl with a heart shaped face
were walking out slowly from a show that i played
and i wondered what they had to say
their faces were framed with the light that decayed
as my pontifications relayed
a memory of something so distant and vague
yet redeemed by the ears it betrayed
and they went their separate ways

i like to think later that they met at some bar
and they drank there together til dawn
theyd drink and theyd joke
and id hope before long
forget me but remember a song
