Track Name: Pretend
Let's play a game on this patterned swing
Where our lives are buried with fortune and fame
Let's say that blame is nothing but a tired scheme
And they've shot us to death, they've shot us to death
But we're still alive and the night is where we left it
And the starting line is where we've found our chance to survive second lives
And now we're back to the beginning

CHORUS
And we will laugh, we will cry
Send our torches to the sky
Where hearts linger and sorrows drown with the night
We will fly, we will see with our eyes
That there is so much more to this pain

We're on the mend but we're tired of
Struggling to find purchase to climb to the top
Of the lonely peak where we stepped on each other only to be
King of a hill that no one can see, impatiently wanting everything
But one faulty step and we're back to the beginning

CHORUS

And we feel that there is so much more to this feeling...
Track Name: Scarlet Letter Girl
So she sold a bit of her soul to know
Everything the Lord had promised her but she was too impatient for
A bit of a dream she couldn't wait to see
But it cost her everything, even the world

Where were the ones she thought she knew
The shoulders turn at the sight of who
Drank from the cup, the witches brew
But they were thirsty too

I know the noose is tightening
Plastic faces smile at me
Watching my feet so carefully
So certain I'll fall away from you

CHORUS
Oh, what has become of us
The best and the worst of us
No different from the rest
Oh, I know what I've done
But what have you become
When you're not hungry for the truth

Even though she had waited for
A sign to open up the door I tried to find
And here in spite of all the things we try to hide
It's not just the way we live
It's how we survive

How do I face the room I'm in
There is a fight stirring within
I am the unnamed, the un-appointed hero of it all
The blame of the sinners is all we need
To take the fall of a dying breed
All so that the world can see they must be above it all

CHORUS

Oh...

And although to the end we must go
We will never know how we will die
They sink their teeth behind apologies
I can't live on sympathies but I'm still alive
Track Name: Drown
It's a cool breeze on the fall trees
Where everything was just where we started from
And the green leaves and the bee stings
Are replaced with the colors of the sun

And I've lost track of the days
And maybe I've lost my way home but for now I feel fine
Lost sight of where I've wandered
Back to you I am tethered, your heart sewn to mine

But I hear the wind start to swirl about
I hear the frost coming in
Time is running out
I don't know what to do... but I'll

CHORUS
Drown in your love
Feel it all, till you've had enough
If it's all the same to you
Can I pretend that we'll be together in the end
Drown in your love
It's a waterfall, feel it wash over
If it's all the same to you
Can I defend that we should be together in the end

It's a brief glimpse, it's a last kiss
On our lips when we say goodbye
And a short glance of one more chance
To bring the earth and our past to life

And I've lost track of the days
And maybe I've lost my way home but for now I feel fine
Lost sight of where I've wandered
Back to you I am tethered, your heart sewn to mine

I hear the wind start to swirl about
I hear the frost settling
Time is running
I don't know what to do.... but I'll

CHORUS
Track Name: Insomnia
When you're afraid to close your eyes
For what might happen when the earth stops moving for a second
When you're afraid you might go blind
To what might happen when you're not there to keep him safe

CHORUS
Insomnia
Please be kind
It's all right
Insomnia
If you don't mind
Stay a little while

When you're afraid to turn away
For what might happen if I'm not there to catch a fall
When you're afraid to dry your eyes
For what might happen if the tears would never come again at all

CHORUS

If I should die before I wake, I pray to God my soul to take
If you should die before I wake, I pray to God my soul to take
If I should die before I wake, I pray to God my soul to take
If you should die before I wake, I pray I pray I pray

CHORUS
Track Name: Ashes to Ashes
Heavy feet and tired eyes look back on the wreckage we have stumbled upon
We dare not speak a word of this for we have found our lips were sealed before our hands were bound

Oh...

Have we been here before
To a time we were unsure
How we could forget something so loud
Of a memory haunting us before
We set foot on a ground where our names were lost and found

We can spill paint on our graves
But people can still read what they say, what we have done
We can throw hammers to the stones
But the pieces on our own are too heavy to carry out of this town
So let's just go now

CHORUS
And the fate of the world may be that we'll all disintegrate like Autumn leaves
And the fate of our souls may see something bigger, something bigger than the air we breathe
So let's move towards the exit sign
And leave all traces of those bodies behind
Let's hope for the candlelight to be all we need for what we may find

Is it too soon to forget
When our sleeves are dark with blood, shed from our shame and lust
We dare not speak a word of this
For our fathers may shake their heads, turn away from us

And we've been here before
Time and time again we're sure
We can forget something so loud
Of a memory haunting us before
We set foot on a ground where our names were lost and found

CHORUS
And the fate of the world may be that we'll all disintegrate like Autumn leaves
And the fate of our souls may see something bigger, something bigger than the air we breathe
So let's move towards the exit sign
And leave all traces of those bodies behind
Let's hope for the candlelight to be all we need for what we may find

We can spill paint on our graves
But people can still read what they say, what we have done
We can throw hammers to the stones
But the pieces on our own are too heavy to carry out of this town

CHORUS
