Vonnegut 02:59
Hexagon 04:13
Have you ever seen such pretty skies? Hey you never thought you’d reach these heights He left the spear to brace her heart The killing moon, the blushing bride The howling wolf, the shrieking man Say I’m awake I’m alive Find a way to scream beyond your mind Take a breath and think of what you’ve done The shadows roam this sweating room I’ve seen the light shape-shifting fool And now I’m back, just wait to meet this loon Say I’m awake I’m alive
This is the day and this is the night the dawn of storms and rebels I’m alive, this fear won’t last for long Walking away, I’ll run through the lost roads the year of knives and torches when the Sun burns down See it rise in the East It’s coming for me The light in your eyes Chorus: Calling me back home that place of green the richest sea the faces known in disguise they know my name and keep rolling their eyes at me losing the young ones to pride Wishing you’d stay I’d wake up at night and think my way till morning this town won’t come down Pray for my foes and bring them to ashes oh child they will not help you I can’t fight your war Find your way in the street they’re waiting for me no light in your eyes Chorus There’s no way out lost in the sea the faces known in disguise even now they keep rolling their eyes at me fearful they look at the Sun
Wetlands 03:46
Wait, wait for me I’ve been trying Feel, feel the need to destroy Seemingly sound and sane leave him out in the rain picking fights, crashing trains oh how fun All, all those years that you wasted this is it, this is it why you crying? where you gonna run? who you gonna call for? always seem to know always prone to wait for the waves
The Seer 03:14
I stood waiting with my eyes eyes open with my eyes wide open looking out She was fading leaving hearts heartbroken leaving hearts heartbroken it was over Expecting and training in dark dark waters these are dangerous waters and times Now that you’ve heard me and my cheap cheap chances there were three men glancing it was over Science and humans turning time and tables twisting bones and tearing flesh apart Taken the hits I’ve seen the lights bright flashing all my dreams came crashing this is the night
Blinders 03:07
Fifth of November in my bed as I regret those long good byes some people never really change and all that's been will come to pass I bet my honor on the rain and all the things you did for me the time has come and I am free to lay myself in this damp cell See how it fades cast yourself away, all alone Washing away all you ever loved, and the things you saved where you gonna run, for the creatures reign in the shade.
We were there and we were young your eyes fixed on sadness In a second all we knew turned violently into fire cracking up the walls the night sounds are dying creeping out and walking back oh what a wonderful burn How low Chorus: Can you see her? She’s crying in the night falling crushed and helpless We are on fire calling out coming armed and dangerous claiming our land back How bad Teach them hard and teach them well the words can’t be spoken I was older way back then when you tried to push him out the window into the road all bloodied and battered a sickness that eats men alive leaving nothing behind in this world there’s someone with you all the time To see you crying in the night falling crushed and helpless We are on fire calling out coming armed and dangerous claiming our land back See her, she’s trying
Cellar Door 04:31
I die because I want to I die cause I don’t care This is the time of restoration That the wise men seemed to yearn I fear in isolation With my tongue inside my mouth All the roads will keep on winding In the year of broken hearts The truth is undermining This is my only chance I’ve been flirting hard with madness I’ve been practicing my lines Admit that you’ve been crying Say it loud and clear Is it just a little tragic that we’ve all chosen to fear? If could crawl back home Lost beyond the road Lines so diffuse let them come let them come to you
In a land of endless summer I had never felt so cold I was soaked on April showers in a wink I’m growing old Shiny blue eyes closing slowly swiftly with a ray of light I was moving in the shadows watching as the years go by Hear my voice shed this heart these old hands these old hands Calling out across the water to the land of deeper thoughts there were times of doubt and sorrow that we spent in blissful joy Hear my voice shed this heart I was lost now I’m found Take these woes and these sighs as I walk in this sequence of shadows this valley of light some of them thought I would never survive you some of them thought I would never survive some of them thought I would never survive you
