Track Name: Burning Ships
Dig a hole
Fill it up with
Ashes from the pictures on the walls
We'll sing
Songs that take us
Back to days when everybody laughed
A time when all of us would play
With silent shadows in the sea
The blurry images I loved
Were always there to comfort me
We're sailing on a burning ship
Save yourselves and leave the others
Everybody has to learn to sink or swim
Tear it down
Into nothing
Lay the pieces all across the floor
We'll sink
In the ocean
You will scream and I will hold you down
Slipping through the cracks
Blindly following yourselves
Calling me for help
Funny how you never helped me
Track Name: If I Should
If my head should slip beneath the surface, it's alright
Just take your hand and hold me under
If age should turn on us with laughter, it's alright
Remember that we'll burn together

Doctor please look at me, I cut deep but cannot bleed
The sun will burn and blister me, and I just peel away

If I should find you there above me, it's alright
I'm quicker than the blade you carry
If I should go before they're ready, it's alright
At least they won't have to worry anymore

Mom and dad please look at me, am I the boy you thought I'd be?
When I was young what did you see? Memory rots away

She asks me if this is going to hurt
Of course it will
I said teeth won't soften for promises
And your bones won't harden if your on your knees
I said if it makes you feel better,
They're just hungry
Track Name: Real
The eyes will lead me down
passed the point of when you cut me out
The shadows on the walls
Laughing at the disembodied shell

Tell me now
As rain begins to fall
What am I?
Nothing you should see
None of you are real
Floating into clouds

The room begins to crumble
Take this number, call me when it stops
The strange words you say
Not like I heard them anyway

Twisted face
Shining like the sun
Look away
Nothing you should See
None of you are real
Floating into clouds

An angel on my shoulder
Fights with the devil in my dreams
A soft voice from nowhere
Pulls me back to Earth and holds me close
Wake me up from the dark
Bring me to the warmth
Track Name: Reconcile
What good is a fire if there's nothing to light?
What good are these walls if there's nothing inside?
What good are these hills if there's nothing to hide?
What good is a fear if there's no more night?

Redacted records in my mind
Searching for faces I can't find
Of all the friends I used to know
Guess everybody's gotta go sometime

To all the girls, blades between their teeth
Stabbing at shadows they can't reach
Talkin up angles and elder signs,
Still blood on your hands if you just stand by

Redacted records in my mind
Searching for faces I can't find
Of all the friends I used to know
Guess everybody's gotta go sometime

To all the boys, stones around their necks
Cursing the gods and red-eyed drecks
Run from shapes only they can see,
The body turns cold if the heart won't beat

Redacted records in my mind
Searching for faces I can't find
Of all the friends I used to know
Guess everybody's gotta go

Lazarus walks for the price of any more long, restful nights

What good is a fire if there's nothing to light?
What good are these walls if there's nothing inside?
What good are these hills if there's nothing to hide?
What good is a fear if there's no more night?

What good is a fire if there's nothing to light?
What good are these walls if there's nothing inside?
What good are these hills if there's nothing to hide?
The Other still shakes if something ain't right
