Track Name: Curtains
I've buried better men than you, my friend
a simple cut is all it takes
I'll take away your hate
I'll take away your pain
you simple men are all the same

(chorus)
still you try to get by on your pretty little lies
well it's all the same to me
but you try as you might yet you're still having trouble
trying to fall asleep at night baby
well come a little close to me

I've seen the darkness you can't hide my friend
I've seen the murder in your eyes
still I need you to know
how bad I want your soul
cause I'm gonna cut you down to size

(chorus)

here we can give you anything you wanted baby
just take that blade and cut your little wrist
you know the pain is temporary
yeah look at me cause i'm everything you wanted baby

(chorus)
still you try to get by on your pretty little lies
well it's all the same to me
but you try as you might yet you're still having trouble
trying to fall asleep at night baby
well come a little close to me
and you'll see
Track Name: Queen of Recovery
well he's out at the office working late again
he don't feel like a man unless he's bringing home that paycheck
well coming home late don't add up to good marriage
but she keeps it together with some pills and some cigarettes
well she's wasting away just like a horse in the dessert
running harder every day just trying to find that settlement
now she's 30 pounds lighter, less human more skeleton
if she don't look good she knows the bastard's gonna cheat again

(chorus)
yeah well you might say you're gonna be a better man
but it's easy to say that when the gun's in her hand
missed opportunities, a line in the sand
you can't take it all back. it all ends right here

cause you're the king of overdoing it, well she's the queen of recovery
yeah you're the king of overdoing it, well she's the queen of recovery
(end chorus)

you cut up the carpet, yeah it's time to redecorate
the getaway is easy, she saw it on the tv
yeah you cut up the body and remove all the evidence
she don't have to act when she was never happy anyway
she's got no kids, no job and it's real easy to extricate
no loose ends to put away, yeah he never loved her anyway
so pull down the shades and she's gonna follow through
don't ask how, she's got so much more work to do

(chorus)
