Track Name: Fangs Like Knives
You have an accurate bite
You know just where to sink your teeth in
With fangs like knives
Let’s stay up all night
And watch a change in our eyes
With fangs like knives

Cause there’s a fear that I can’t decide
If it should be here or if should hide
You’re like a vampire and an angel
At the same time

Lifeless lover
You’re the perfect drug
Let’s live forever

In a delicate way
You stole what I wanted to give you
The night and the day
You said we’d be the same
And you told me everything
I wanted to say

Cause there’s a fear that I can’t decide
If it should be here or if should hide
You’re like a vampire and an angel
At the same time

Lifeless lover
You’re the perfect drug
Let’s live forever

Dangerously close
To throwing you away
But you brought me in from the cold
Before I froze
You have an accurate bite
You bit in just when I needed you to
With fangs like knives
Track Name: Break Into Pieces
Born into a family set on revolution
Leave the door open for a singular exception
Turn a blind eye to a strange constitution
She puts a black mark on the family’s reputation

Turn up your volume
Break into pieces
I think you’re missing the point

Gotta give in you, don’t know what to do
You’re gonna give in before she hates you
The money ain’t all, the money’s brand new
All the money in the world, you can’t buy a clue

So she turned up the volume
Break up the volume
I think you’re missing the point
Track Name: Whatever's Real
Don’t worry, you’ll see straight
As the lights start to dim
There’s candy for your sweettooth
Just let it settle in

Ask if something’s wrong, I’ll say whatever’s real
Ask if something’s wrong, I’ll say whatever’s real
I don’t know why you go out at all
I know that something’s wrong, I’ll tell you how to feel

So how you gonna get home
Do you know whwere you live
In the palm of my hand, girl
Like a baby in a crib

Ask if something’s wrong, I’ll say whatever’s real
Ask if something’s wrong, I’ll say whatever’s real
I don’t know why you go out at all
I know that something’s wrong, I’ll tell you how to feel
Track Name: Ch. 11
Look outside, what do we find
Noone’s workin’ on the street
A day and age has passed us by
There’s things that we can’t meet
Open the door, let me in
I need to ask you a favor
I’m beaten down, I keep getting up
I need a change sooner or later

I know you’re in a losing fight, alright
I know you’re losing sleep at night
But tomorrow has yet to come my son
I know you’ll fix the damage that was done

Follow the rules, don’t waste my time
And don’t you dare fall apart
They hold your life on a razor’s edge
You win the game and play the part

I know you’re in a losing fight, alright
I know you’re losing sleep at night
But tomorrow has yet to come my son
I know you’ll fix the damage that was done

In the wake of a never-ending enemy
I don’t fight, I take cover and run
Track Name: Flight Fight
Keep my head to the ceiling and my fingers crawl the walls
If I can’t fly to heaven, I don’t want to be here at all

Do you wanna be here baby?
Or stay on the coast?
Baby, if your answer’s maybe,
I’ll leave you all alone

Lightning bolts, they light the sky
Careful not to get too high
I’ve got wings made out of wax
Sunshine on my back

Do you wanna be here baby?
Or stay on the coast?
Baby, if your answer’s maybe,
I’ll leave you all alone

Load my bow with an arrow
Look myself in the mirror
If we don’t leave tomorrow
I know the end is near
Track Name: Fall in Line
Kick in the door, I don’t care no more
I got reason to keep it shut
Buy what you need and take what you want from me
Something I need, it’s important to me
When I’m willing to give it up
Let yourself go, I won’t be the one to let you know

I’m on my way, I just don’t know where to go (and I will let you know)

Carpe diem, we can sieze the day
Come on to me and come what may
Buy what you need and take what you want from me
I want you for myself so I’m coming down of the shelf
Let yourself go, I won’t be the one to let you know

I’m on my way, I just don’t know where to go
Am I the one that’s sorry, the one to fall in line?
And I will let you know

Kick in the door, I don’t care anymore
There’s no reason to keep it shut
Buy what you need and take what you want from me
Something I need, it’s important to me
When I’m willing to give it up
Let yourself go, I won’t be the one to let you know

I’m on my way, I just don’t know where to go
Am I the one that’s sorry, the one to fall in line?
And I will let you know
Track Name: The Brim
Open the flood, we’ll wash it all away
Hope you were not expecting me to stay
Where can I find you when I leave
When we’re taken over by the sea

So tie me down, I can’t hear a sound
When there is none
Let me in up to the brim
And I drown

Staring at the crest upon the wave
Staring at the look upon your face
Word I needed, I know you’re scared
What makes you think that we’ll be spared

Close your eyes and feel the tide
The perfect storm
Keep your ground, we’re going down

Under the water is the end of days
Under the sea is where we’ll be
Nothing really matters anymore
They’ll find the bodies washed upon the shore

Don’t let go, we’ll both keep hold
A white knuckle grip
A tsunami for you and me (say goodbye)
Track Name: Tied to the Tracks
Standing at a crossroads with a fire in my eyes
And I’m here now, I’m all alone and I’ve got you on my mind
My choices seem to be further away from me

Standing at a crossroads with a burning in my heart
Can’t seem to find the words to say it’s gonna kill you when we part
My girls she seems to be running away from me

If I can’t have you, no one can
If I can’t have you, no one can
I can’t stand to see you with another man
If I can’t have you, no one can

Standing at the edge of a cliff with secrets in my brain
When I jump my dying breath will be screaming out your name
My temper seems to be getting away from me

If I can’t have you, no one can
If I can’t have you, no one can
I can’t stand to see you with another man
If I can’t have you, no one can
Track Name: Woodward
I never thought I’d see the day when you’d finally fall asleep
You left a long time ago – before, you came to talk to me
Open the door, take a look around and run from me
I never had the chance to tell you what you meant to me

Down on the avenue, tell me what you’re gonna do for me
Show me what you can do, sell yourself ‘cause what you want ain’t free

Down on your luck again and bad habits don’t come cheap
Scratched up your knees again, you sold your soul to the street

Out in the cold, find a way to make ends meet
Out on your own, can’t admit that life has you beat

Tattoos, razorblades, crumpled bills and dirty feet
I’ll never to live to see the day when you finally start to come clean

Down on the avenue, tell me what you’re gonna do for me
Show me what you can do, sell yourself ‘cause what you want ain’t free
Track Name: Pay the Fine
Won’t push us down, down to the ground
The worst are kept around
Break the rules with broken tools
We won’t be played for fools
Stand up tall down to the wire
Now we’re stuck in the funeral pyre
You don’t know and we don’t care
You should know that we’re not scared

We won’t beg for freedom, this is not the time
In your mind, we let you down, now pay the fine

No changing minds, just changing times
Father time has not been kind
If it’s so bad then let us go
We’re gonna show you what we know
Total in action it full stagnation, we’re in need of an alteration
You have a fit ‘cause we cause a scene
All we need is a change of scenery

We won’t beg for freedom, this is not the time
In your mind, we let you down, now pay the fine
Track Name: Can't Be Satisfied
Open up the fault line
Let me walk away
Is that what you want
If I’m burning up inside
You’re gonna watch me die
Is that what you want

I’m doing everything for you, but you can’t
Be satisfied
No you can’t be satisfied

If I had one wish
I would never see you again
If I had one wish
I would never see you again
Track Name: Right in the Middle
Take a trip to the sun where I burn and turn into a pile of dust
I can’t turn my head away no matter how I try, I can’t but I must

Turn down the lights somehow
The will is there I just don’t know how
Am I right in the middle or on the edge and about to fall
Turn down the lights somehow
Am I safe under the clouds
Am I right in the middle or on the edge and about to fall

I’m seeing things I never thought I’d see and I can’t breathe
I can’t turn my head away no matter how I try, I can’t but I must

Turn down the lights somehow
The will is there I just don’t know how
Am I right in the middle or on the edge and about to fall
Turn down the lights somehow
Am I safe under the clouds
Am I right in the middle or on the edge and about to fall

Can’t believe my eyes it’s like a ghost, I’ve seen more than most
I can’t turn my head away no matter how I try, I can’t but I must

Turn down the lights somehow
The will is there but I don’t know how
Am I right in the middle or on the edge and about to fall
Turn down the lights somehow
Am I safe under the clouds
Am I right in the middle or on the edge and about to fall
