Track Name: The Know How
Perhaps this is something I should attend to
At least acknowledge it’s there
Do I have the fist to follow through?
or choose the poison instead
Well i guess that i’ll just have to make do
with the ache and fatigue
I swear I thought highly of you
but thats a dream that I’m left with

When you said “I’m coming around again”
I didn’t want that
And after everything I said when I was done
didn’t want that
When you said “I’m coming around again”
didn’t want that

I knew about the dissent
but not to this extent
I know now
Tugging on the reins saying
I’ll never love again
I know how
said that you were different
despite all the malcontent
I know now
Stomping on the chest pain
Saying I won't care again
I know how

It’s not about breaking your will
or pissing off the lord above
its a cigarette that needs to be put out
on my occipital lobe
Im turning and tossing in doubt
will I ever rest again
I hope you feel broken without
my hands through your hair

I knew about the dissent
but not to this extent
I know now
Tugging on the reins saying
I’ll never love again
I know how
said that you were different
despite all the malcontent
I know now
Stomping on the chest pain
Saying I won't care again
I know how

I know how

Blasting through the castle walls still spinning out of control
With the fire at the heart of it, i'm about to overflow
there’s an ember growing strong and burning down below
Welding the pieces of my mind, it’s keeping me whole

You said i’d know
but i'm still alive
You’re breaking the walls
but i'm still right here
You said I’d know
I know
Track Name: Fire Under Water
You and I were driving, but the car has no brake
and were both crying, just calm down for goodness sake
and we each wanted a different turn which we should take
but undecided we went head first into the lake

I’m on fire again
in a pool of water again
I’m on fire again
and the two don't mix well
I'm running again
ears are steaming again
I’m running again
I just need to yell
Under fire again
in a pool of water again
under fire again
with the anger in every cell
I’m chasing again
hands are sweating again
I’m chasing again
its a hard thing to retell

I’ve been doing more that thinking
I’ve been showing more than feeling
I’ve been yelling more than speaking
I’ve been breaking more than bending

You and I were flying but the cloud is ahead
we’re both lying, just holding hands until the end

I’m on fire again
in a pool of water again
I’m on fire again
and the two don't mix well
I'm running again
ears are steaming again
I’m running again
I just need to yell
Under fire again
in a pool of water again
under fire again
with the anger in every cell
I’m chasing again
hands are sweating again
I’m chasing again
its a hard thing to retell

I’ve been doing more that thinking
I’ve been showing more than feeling
I’ve been yelling more than speaking
I’ve been breaking more than bending

You wanted this, I’m wanting you out

I’m doing the thinking
I’m showing the feeling
Im yelling and I'm speaking
I’m breaking and I'm mending
Track Name: Brace For Embrace
The sharp spiked bash of hand across hair
The smooth stroke of hearts, only fair
The blue bruise you had, I wouldn't dare
Our burning blue flame, it’s only fair

It’s only fair

Everything that I thought that we should have been is
Everything I thought that we should have been

Bracing, Embracing the blow

The dark side of a hopefully deed
the daring call of your desperate need
holding me accused your new found creed
while claiming you're in desperate need

desperate need

Everything that i thought that we should have been is
Everything I thought that we should have been

Bracing, Embracing the blow
Bracing, Embracing the cold
Bracing, Embracing the bold

Well I'm burning alive
you set it
Well I'm burning alive
You laugh while I burn
Well you set it, you did it, you set it

Well I'm burning alive
you set it
I'm burning alive
and you chuckle while I burn
you set it, yeah you did it, yeah you lit it
Track Name: Roots Are Home
You came to me under that silhouette
Hoping to fulfill your own shaky nerves
Then, it came to me that I would be left alone
so I, went back

Then I went back home

With the roots and the top soil
And a dull thump of a man’s boots
on the head of your lover’s
poorly designed, barely refined
With the roots and the top soil
And a dull thump of a man’s boots
on the head of your lover’s
poorly designed, barely refined

You came to me with nothing left
hoping to fulfill your own shaky nerves

And in the heart of
all the folding
while confusing
and abusing this

It came to me that
time would be left alone
so I went back

Then I went back home

With the roots and the top soil
And a dull thump of a man’s boots
on the head of your lover’s
poorly designed, barely refined
With the roots and the top soil
And a dull thump of a man’s boots
on the head of your lover’s
poorly designed, barely refined
Track Name: Scavenger
Would you be a dear and tend the garden please
You see, the beauty is growing too high for the weeds to see
poor little things, they just want to grow
poor little things, never thought where your heart would go

I remember everything
you took it all away from me
but now I am soaring free
its all for you, and all for this
The gliding crow above of me
a simple flowing symphony
of complex anatomy
its all for you, and all for this
But like the crow flowing free
Im forced into scavenging
to keep this heart beating
its all for you, and all for this
Ripping apart everything
red splattered ecstasy
make it a part of me
its all for you, and all for this

Would you be a dear and tend the robins please
you see, they’re eating all the food and leaving those crows hungry
poor little things, they just want to live
poor little things, never thought that your heart would give

I never thought your heart would give

I remember everything
you took it all away from me
but now I am soaring free
its all for you, and all for this
The gliding crow above of me
a simple flowing symphony
of complex anatomy
its all for you, and all for this
But like the crow flowing free
Im forced into scavenging
to keep this heart beating
its all for you, and all for this
Ripping apart everything
red splattered ecstasy
make it a part of me
its all for you, and all for this

Headed down that road again
its all for you, and all for this

Fucking scream, now get out

Would you be a dear...
Track Name: By Any Other Name
Here’s a boys face, breathing carefully
and he’s lying on the ground
he reaches out, hands dripping red
unaware of all the things around
But when the father showed you scarcity
you didn’t feel let down
but with the gun shots and obscenities
you feel the father’s unknown

Fly, before they stop the noise
The waves are on the climb
You’re reaching out blind

Show him what you need
Perhaps he’ll give it too
you know, I would to
I guess air, food and water
is too large a gift
for poor little you

Here’s a girls face, breathing barely
Ass naked on the ground
She reaches out, “oh god, why?”
“why arn’t you around?”
“oh father, you know me
I didn't make a sound
but it’s nice when you hold me
but I feel let down”

And I feel so let down

Fly, before they stop the noise
The waves are on the climb
You’re reaching out blind

If the boundaries of war
are set by the lord
then who’s to blame
For wanting more
Track Name: Noch
Grip the Wheel
Till the lines on the Road
Are covered up
By a Fog in the mind
that fills you now,
It reaches down and
lifts you up
to a place far from here

Hard to know
The stars are your father
They're this close to a brother
You've never known
Love in the right way
Take me apart now
and build me the right way

You’re bleeding out
on fragments of stone
so unaware,
I won't let your weakness be shown

Guarantee you have thought of logically
Promise me, you’d hold on to them willingly
I know it’s hard, hard to look past your vanity
Deal with it, this growth is a necessity

You feel the air take hold, pressing down
You, take the air, grab hold, let it out

You feel the air take hold, pressing down
You take the air, grab hold, let it out
You, grasp for air, feeling cold, kings crown
You take the air, grab hold, let it out

Hard to know
The stars are your father
They're this close to a brother
You've never known
Love in the right way
Take me apart now
and build me the right way

So carelessly aware
of the leak within the new home
still hoping for more
but I wont stop it at all

You’re reaching out
on fragments alone
so unaware, I won't let
your weakness be shown

I'm taking on so much now
feel the leeches all around
feeding more on my mind
make it stop for a while

I've seen you beg for this
I've seen you take from this

Well past another life
Track Name: The Wolves Left You
Your smile was coy
but the wolves were inside you
Howling at the moon
and hoping to devour you
and i took your hand
to the downtown station
and that’s where you’ll be found
the same place I left you

The same place I left you

I lost my balance
and I reached out for a hand
and I don't think that you
would really understand
it just so happen to be yours
and I need to mention
that if you follow me
you’ll be the same place I left you

The same place I left you
