Track Name: Why Am I So Holy?
Without a hope
Without a prayer
You're only in danger when you're in my care
The killer in my kindness
I know I'm a liar but I do mean well
Closer to heaven when I'm raising hell
The color in my blindness

And I cannot believe
How long it took to see
If I'm not killing time
It must be time that's killing me

Good God, why am I so holy?

You take the title
I'll take the fame
Homeless man but with a household name
Time will tell us who won
I want to be rich but with my faith intact
I want to die young but it's too late for that
Your hand's all over this one

Good God, why am I so holy?
Track Name: Threads
You gave it up
Without a sound
Without a word
You readied to erase

And where you stood
Was where I fell
A thousand times
To an island in decay

The second day
Your name was read
A cross of ash upon your head

And through the night
The city fell
A vestige of an island in decay

You are my
You are my
You are my
Red Odessa
You are my
You are my
You are my
Island in decay

Don't cut me in
Don't cut me out
Call me when the drugs run out

And if I go
I go without God
I go without God, but in your name
And if I go
I go without God
I go without God
And I'm an island in decay
Track Name: Flip/Switch
Sunset invades your head
This desert life’s not the one you had in mind
Had in mind

But if you try to make it right and fall upon your sword
Your country will forgive you
Your country will forgive you

Why did you flip boy, why did you switch
Taking from the poor just to give it to the rich

Hollow men who are your friends
Just one kiss and they’ll have you sent away
Sent away

But if you try to cover lies with cunning turn of phrase
Your country will forget you
This country will forget you

Why did you flip boy, why did you switch
Taking from the poor just to give it to the rich

Lay your head down, Casanova
Kill your darlings
Summer’s over
Track Name: On Fire
Daylight, untwist
Sucker to your Chelsea kiss
We’re changing locks
To faces that we’ll never miss
Safe house, lion’s den
Sleeping in our clothes again
You know, it’s all we know

And now we’re living

Backstreet, frontline
Physical graffiti time so open up
And shed your fickle skin tonight
One last shot and 2 left feet
I’ll back myself into defeat
You know, it’s all we know

And now we’re living

Man on the back of my hand and no exit here

And are we living
Track Name: A Lake Is Just a Tear
?
Track Name: Hospital Awake
Wake up
It's time
And you know
This time
There will be
No return
So follow me

We're dying for the highs and living out the lows
We're digging with our hands but still got nothing

Forget
Your home
And everyone
You've known
For they are then
We are now
Our colony

Delusion has a force enough to kill a man
I say it to your face but you say nothing
You say nothing

And we will find a way
We will find a way
Through this concrete enclave

And we will find a way
Through every carnival
And animal
And chemical melee

And it falls on me
