we speak in whispers hard to hear
we pull away from pulling near
and with every step we get closer still to breaking
we speak in riddles then in blows
and darker still these things can go
and with every wound we get closer still to nothing
i made myself this tape of lies
and pushed it through your haunted eyes
and came out on the other side the same
in the secret language of relationships
we rewind just to hear the record skip
and "friend" is just another word for pain

you take it all away from me
too fast too far too much to bleed
for once the words you said to me were true
your betrayal down and so it goes
just another lesson proof to show
there's a million ways to get from here to blue
i made myself deny it all
the lies you told the way I'd crawl
but the way it turned out i guess it was just as well
in the secret language of relationships
we push too far and then we slip
and "home" is just another word for hell

now i know what the shadows knew
i'm past the pain and pulling through
there's just one more game left for me to play
the feel of your scars underneath my hands
i have become your shadowman
and in the end you're better off this way
i made myself this tape of lies
and pushed it through your dead grey eyes
and came out on the other side the same
in the secret language of relationships
we rewind just to hear the record skip
and "love" is just another word for pain

We started out at the end of 2000 (after completing work on our fourth LP release DECAY) with about 60 tracks in rough demo format for the next release. Over the last two years, we added maybe 20 tracks to that list. Through various "cut parties" we narrowed the tracks we would work on down throughout the year, and we went into the studio on December 15th 2001 with about 26 candidate tracks for the album. The next seven months were spent refining and recording. The result -- these 16 tracks.
