Track Name: Rose
Night, night on the street - The people are high - The sun is low - I will hold fire - With a rose in my hand - Thrown it to the ground - I've been gone two years too long - And I, I bleed for you darlin' - And I, I did time for you, my darlin' - When you kissed my lips - I woke up in a dream - My eyes bleeding - Your toes green and I'm running - Running away - Faster than my lungs can support - And I, I run for you darlin' - And I, I owe it to you my darlin'
Track Name: Tourniquet
You took away my freedom - You took it all away - Of all the miles and miles of blue sky - You're the one drop of rain - I tried to give you warning, despite it all - I feel that I've got nothing but bruises on my feet - I wish you all the mornings - I wish them all away - I'll look for blood that's pouring - And the makeshift tourniquet - I tried to give you warning, despite it all - I feel that I've got nothing but bruises on my feet
Track Name: Leech
Remember the feeling when you found yourself - Burning skin in the sun - No more blood or forced-fed healings - You're coming home with me - It's like summer in the rain - Soft it falls on your face - Your sheer beauty is hard to explain - Maybe I'll get it someday - Songs they leech - The life out of me - Take this burden that won't leave - And burn it off of me - What does it feel like to have it your way? - I hope it feels so good - What does it feel like to know what to say? - I hope you're understood
Track Name: Villain
Good luck to the villain - Who takes a piece of your heart - It's not in abundance - You've given out too much And you use them up like they're going out of fashion - All the while you're growing old - And the world just stops just for a second - You realise what you've become - There's no God when you need him - The grass is much greener - Far away from your home - See the signs in the weather - Of all the trouble to come - And you use them up like they're going out of fashion - All the while you're growing old - Like a holy man losing his faith - You realise what you've become - There's no God when you need him - You're lost in the rhythm the covers band plays - Got your eye on another to fill your urge to hold - The villain of the day
Track Name: Rising
I'm singing like a bird who's fallen out of his tree - An example of the difference between you and me - You're hard and stoney-faced - I wish that I was blessed - To sleep my life away - I'm swimming like a bird who's fallen out of his tree - And as I struggle to drown you just stare at me - You're scarred and misplaced - I wish that I was a lantern - Rising out of the way - You are a coward for telling me lies - Throwing all our money into the air - You'll never reach the moon or even clear the trees - But you lost your love in between
Track Name: Thrown Away
Sigh, I can't hold my head - Love, my heart is dead - Ma, I wish I'd made my bed - Trouble is heading this way - Here comes the tide - Lapping up to my feet - I wish you'd run outside - Stand here and talk to me - Washed clean by the sea - I'd throw out all my things - To see if I can get you back - This man has nothing in his pockets - But the rock that you gave to me - Here comes the tide - Lapping up to my feet - I wish you'd run outside - Stand here and talk to me - Washed clean by the sea - And all that you see - Was owned by me - Thrown away
Track Name: Your Time is Ticking
Try to see yourself in someone else's shoes - Finger touches his lips, her love wraps him up - But you're gone, alone again with a little boy's blues - Find the strength to haul yourself up on to the roof and watch the world go by - Lie in 'til the sun is up, half your life is passing by - Claustrophobic with OCD, your routine gone awry - But you're capable of magic when your vices let up - Come on and smash it out - your time is ticking - Your time is ticking
Track Name: Gold
Oh preacher I don't blame you for cracks in my path - I don't hold you accountable for love that don't last - Oh lover I didn't see you in the room in the corner - In that moment I lost it, skipped by love and rushed it - Oh mama you raised me to be stronger than my mind - Drinking hard liquor on my back, I snapped and I'm sorry - Oh weather it don't suit you to bless me with sun - To be known is forgotten, paper umbrella has fallen - Oh preacher forgive me for what I have done
Track Name: Boy
Your heart is too big for you through no fault of your own - But you'll keep breathing until they take you away from here - Oh boy, how I love you - I can't do a thing for you except hold my head high - I'll keep on believing this was always meant to be - And I should be happy - Three years in my pocket, I call on you like a watch - I guess I've got used to how your smile is hidden away - For only us to see
Track Name: Enemy
It's like you saw me in the colours of the enemy - I'm sitting in a tree waiting for the world to swallow me - Swallow me - You screamed and chased me, falling down the stairs in a heap - You've disappointed me, I hang my head a touch and fall asleep - Fall asleep
