PLACES

If this is how I feel I’ll make it simple
This place is full of change
It’s part of the deal
Oh.  Don’t wait on me
I’ll make it just in time
You’ll see

Friends it’s all been good
But I think I’ll go alone this time
It’s out of my control

Our want is unwanted
Under the roots of summer
Our lung is black powder
Inside the chests of cowards

Oh don’t wait on me
I’ll make it just in time
You’ll see
It’s hard to meet you where
We started once before
And now we’ve parted

Our want is unwanted
Under the roots of summer
Our lung is black powder
Inside the chests of cowards

Oh don’t wait on me
I’ll make it just in time you’ll see
But I’m here in a bunker under streets
The only way is to keep me here
Still looking for the view I always wanted


PULLING TEETH

First step.. some threat has thawed
A temptress on her feet
The next step
You’re waking up
To the sound of pulling teeth

Now you’re out of time
Most of the time
Always out of time

You look up
Your legs are cut
Your head is off
And the beast is on
Now the sky is red
And the jig is up
I can’t be eaten alive
To the sound of music

Pulling apart the stairwell
Pulling apart all alone
Pulling apart the stairwell
Now you’re out of time
Most of the time
Always out of time

Six steps in my direction
Is the lust of deception that’s caving in


SHOCK

On the long road from shock
There’s a language you may know
If you write it down
You wont’ recognize it’s face

Could you realize you in twos?
Realize you in two?

Now the feeling’s gone
And the nerves completely dead
What you saw was real
Left you blind and rid of sparks

Do you try the same as you used to?
Does it hurt to much to review?
Do you realize you in twos’?
When the shock of hell’s in full view

Don’t turn off until the warning sign
Please .. It’s much too hard to notice
Don’t turn off until the warning sign
Please .. It’s much too hard to notice it

On the long road from shock
There’s a language you may know
If you write it down
You wont’ recognize it’s face

 

DIRTLAND

Ten feet more to go
In this underground called home
Where you’re left covered in dirt
Next to your hard work

Dig out toward the sun
You’ve hit the bottom now
You’re all done
Now it’s time to leave this place
It’s bloodied up your face

Find me here
It’s true it’s true
Dig me out I’m through
Find me here
It’s true it’s true
Dig me out I’m through

Cold feet .. bound and dragged
Envisioning just that
But you’re alive to hear the thump
Of a past too deep to fear

So close your friends can hear
So obvious you’re insincere
Now it’s time to leave this place
It’s bloodied up your face

Find me here
It’s true it’s true
Dig me out I’m through
Find me here
It’s true it’s true
Dig me out I’m through

Aren’t you taking off?
I’ll tell you something sharp enough so you remember me
Aren’t you taking? Sharp enough so you remember..

 

JUNKYARD

Don’t let these words creep you out in the end
You always said best when walking out
Never thought you’d be

Quick to start, the city’s dark
But now I see why our buildings are scarred

Took more than two feet to leave these streets
Car crash in your way sold for parts
In a junkyard made of clay

Quick to start, the city’s dark
But now I see why our buildings are scarred
Dead or not, these feelings rot
But now I see you fine

No paralyzed limbs here
How long , how long will it take to kick it?
No paralyzed limbs here

Quick to start, the city’s dark
But now I see why our buildings are scarred
Dead or not, these feelings rot
But now I see you fine

No paralyzed limbs here
How long , how long will it take to kick it?
No paralyzed limbs here
How long, how long will it take to kick it?
