Track Name: Liberty Bell
Reign sir
Wrapped sir
Hold my hat sir
You stole
My liberty bell
Is gone
And ringing for nowhere

Aim sir
Whole sir
Hit my half sir
You stole
My liberty bell
Is gone
And ringing for nowhere

Chained sir
Chapped sir
Chipped sir
Cracked sir
You stole
My liberty bell
Is gone
And ringing for nowhere

Saved sir
Stand sir
Faint sir
Bagged sir
You stole
My liberty bell
Is gone
And ringing for nowhere
Track Name: A Ball Full of Strangers
Out on your own
Your fingers crossed to the bone
The light that you saw
And thought would lead you back home
Did not
Now that you're gone
You're staying right where you are
You are
A Ball full of Strangers
Beautiful Strangers
Track Name: When I Pause
When I pause to walk across the road
It's not coming, it's not coming

When I pause and hit the floor I know
It's not coming, it's not coming

Until you go
All my senses roll
All my senses roll
Track Name: Death You Keep Me Alive
Death you keep me alive
Starring at the back of my head
Always there by my side
Ever since I took my first breath
Now there was a time
In my youth
When I would look at you
And want to run away
But not this year
Not this time
I stand before you unafraid
And maybe not today
And maybe not tomorrow
But one day and one day soon
A lights gonna be thrown
On all of this
From the gods in the heavens
To the moles in the ground
Death you keep me alive
Track Name: Thief in the Night
Then you were gone
Just like a thief in the night you were gone
I tried too
Letters I'd write in the furnace once again
Now I'm carving out holes in the walls
The smell of smoldering smoke fills the halls
I'm screaming everyone's name as the place flames towards the floor
I'm here to help you
You're mine to rescue
Hold you, have you
You're mine to rescue
Mine

Then you were gone
Just like a thief in the night you were gone
Reminded me of a song you hum
Inside your car
And now I'm bleeding myself on the floor
I'm taking pharmacy pills by the handful
I'm drinking chemicals found in the drawer
I'm going home

I'm here to help you
You're mine to rescue
Hold you, have you
You're mine to rescue
Mine

Then you were gone
Just like a thief in the night you were gone
Reminded me of a song you hum
Inside your car
Track Name: Stupid Boy
In your head
It made perfect sense I bet
The steps you stepped
By stepping over them
Stupid boy
Stupid boy
The thoughts you led
Climbing into bed
The fires lit
And soon this house will join it
To taste the end
To feel it sinking in
You found a friend
By god you found a friend

Stupid boy
Stupid boy
And now it's resting on my shoulders
All your blessings on my shoulders
I'm glad you'll die
I'm glad you'll die
Track Name: The Devil's Chaplain, Holy Father in Heaven, A God Forgotten
My father's evil to the bone
I hear him walking through the halls
Back and forth to make it known
My father's evil to the bone
He'll keep you locked inside your home
At least for air he poked these holes
I'll try my best to break his hold
But my father's evil to the bone
You peep hole on your way to go
You people on your way to go
Track Name: Flock of Birds
A flock of birds fly over your head
You look down never to see them again
They fly south, passed the mountains
To an island away from here
May all their dreams come true
Cars drive by on the other side
As the sun goes down and rises somewhere else
The passersby blur the corner of your eye
The blue goes home to kiss his wife
And the red goes home to nothing
May all their dreams come true
Dodo
You hold it in for as long as you can
Until your chest is finally falling and rising again
As you drive south, passed the mountains
To an island away from here
May all your dreams come true
Track Name: The Night
Down, down in a hole
Air stale and cold
From here everything's lost
From here everything's lost
Are you lonely
As I hold you in the night?
Right, right where I want
All, all the chips fall
From now and forever on
Now and forever on
Are you lonely
As I hold you in the night?
Now all of my friends
Are gone, gone with the wind
Where, where to begin
Oh where, where to begin
Are you lonely
As I hold you in the night?
Track Name: Kiefer Sutherland
There's no such thing as good
There's no such thing as evil
And Kiefer Sutherland can keep believing
Keep believing
There's no such thing as Buddha
Allah, Shiva, God or Jesus
People dreamed this in the morning
And believed it in evening
And I hate to break the news
And I know we've got the blues
But when we check under our pillows
The fairy keeps leaving the tooth
There's no such thing as me
There's no such thing as you
And Kiefer Sutherland can keep believing
Keep believing
Right or wrong
Right or wrong
Track Name: Eliza
I'm in a hurry, sorry, would you please come back
I know you think we're friends but we are far from that
We started off together now we're off the tracks
And I'm praying everyday one day we'll get it back

Oh the places we would go
Although it didn't work out it was still a blast
And I know I'll never find somebody after that
I loved you every moment baby that's a fact
And although I didn't show it you can count on that
Oh the places we would go
Oh Eliza, when I met you
I was dreaming in my head
Now Eliza, when I see you
I'm wishing you were dead
Oh Eliza please go on your way
Oh Eliza please go on your way
Track Name: Summertime Clothes
Summertime's closed
Winter time blows
And everyone knows it
Everyone knows it
Fuck if I know
Anything at all
About anything at all
I mean anything at all
Well you made it out alright
You made it out alright this time
God that was close
I'm locking the door
I'm turning the bolt
I sleep here no more
Well you made it out alright
You made it out alright this time
No more singing in this house
Walls are empty, the drawers cleaned out
In the evening in this house
As you're turning you're walking out
Girl I got to tell you something
Girl I got to tell you something
Track Name: Calls From the Courtyard
You carry a rifle and bury your chest
You play the new anthem
You won't let it end
You are not my best friend
Just someone who talks a lot like them
Well I'm watching a thousand faces at my door
You call from the courtyard
Your voice it is met
By turns of the head and raises of hands
You are not my best friend
Just someone who talks a lot like them

Well I'm falling, a thousand faces at my door
Your points hit the center
Of tin hat nonsense
And all that you're saying
Is not sinking in
You are not my best friend
Just someone who talks a lot like them
Well I'm launching a thousand faces at my door
You ain't no messiah
A preacher at best
Your words come from high up
The steps of bull shit
You are not my best friend
Just someone who talks a lot like them
Well I'm dying, a thousand faces at my door
I carry you slowly
You walk with a limp
I could have forgotten
But I just didn't
You are not my best friend
Just someone who talks a lot like them
Well I'm standing, a thousand faces at my door
My head in a slumber
My feet off the bed
All that we went through
This nightmare won't end
You are not my best friend
Just someone who talks a lot like them
Well I'm broken, a thousand faces at my door
Track Name: A Walk Towards the Light
Born and raised there
Found my grave there
By myself
I walk towards the light
In my end
Almost grazed me
Passed right through me
I'm watching
The dawn hit the light
In my end
Never knew me
Never saw me
My grave will say
He walked towards the light
In his end
Born and raised there
Found my way there
My door is closed
I'm one with the light
In my end
