Save Me 03:53
What are you saying? What are you saying to me? What do you want me to believe? Everything you said turned out wrong. Busted and broken or dead and gone. There’s an old light coming up over the ridge with a stone cold heart and very thin skin. Now, darkness falls like a lightning flash. It takes all the present and erases the past. Who’s going to save, save me from the dark side of the street? Who’s going to save, save me from the dark side of the street? Every time I’m walking, I’m moving slow. Looking for something but for what I don’t know Talking to myself in rhythm and rhyme. I swear to God, I think that I’m losing my mind. Who’s going to save, save me from the dark side of the street? Who’s going to save, save me from the dark side of the street? Who’s going to save, save me? Who’s going to save, save me? Who’s going to save, save me? Who’s going to save, save me?

The Dogs 04:00
I was sleep walking my eyes were shut, the earth felt wet beneath my feet. Following voices that seemed so familiar, It all felt too real to be a dream. Outside the dogs they were barking. The wind was pushing hard against the leaves. The faces of the people that had died long ago, They were trying to say something to me. They warned of this world’s hatred and greed I got scared so I ran into the woods I ran among the oaks and the magnolia trees I shed myself of all these worldly goods. Outside the dogs they were barking. The wind was pushing hard against the leaves. The faces of the people that had died long ago, They were trying to say something to me. Seeing is believing and death is like dreaming Boys, I think that I’m ready to go. I’ll change my direction, cure this infection All, if you just leave me alone. I opened my eyes caught a glimpse of light, sun rising high above the trees. I laid beside the river, my lungs felt weak and then suddenly, I began to breath. Outside the dogs they were barking. The wind was pushing hard against the leaves. The faces of the people that had died long ago, They were trying to say something to me.

El Interior 05:14
Deep in the interior the walls are dirty and black. Got the sense that I should return but I can’t find my way back. Deep in the interior where the lonely Shorona wails. Mosquitos feast upon your flesh and my complexion is growing pale. Now, two letters I sit to write. One is to my mother, the other to my wife. Just a reminder that I love them so and all my regrets for leaving them alone. Why did I have to go? Why did I have to go? Deep in the interior I’ve murdered, stolen and lied Take the road the road that leads outside of town, It climbs like a ladder to the sky Now, two letters I sit to write. One is to my mother, the other to my wife. Just a reminder that I love them so and all my regrets for leaving them alone. Why did I have to go? Why did I have to go?

So Loud 03:00
It’s all in my mind, the way you’re looking at me. My eyes are blind, sound is like the crash of lightning. Now, I don’t know which way to go Lost once again, it’s so loud. Don’t let me go, the ground feels like its shaking. Caught in a dream where there is no awakening. I’m born again in my head, in my head. Lost in a world that’s so loud. Now, I don’t know which way to go. Lost in a world that’s so loud I hear them now, all of the people talking (Don’t let me go) Can’t get them out, swarms of bees attacking (Don’t let me go) Fly with me above the earth and the sea. High above the world that’s so loud.

Hand in hand we walk together, as both friends and enemies. The only thing that keeps us together is that we're too afraid to leave. The love we shared is over, so we've both learned to deceive Every word has lost its meaning as this song it's melody Now, we both are tired, afraid to sleep When we awake we are more like strangers and regret lives in our eyes And when I reach out to touch you, you just turn and say goodbye These days are all empty, only memories remain Dark skies before us and the pounding of the rain The one who I once loved, the one who I once loved now has changed
6.
The Freak 03:45
You turned and walked away. I said “that’s ok” I knew you’d be back because you never change. The time is gone, it’s here again. The night has left, morning begins. A certain love that I once had is now decay in my hands. What I want is always gone. This love affair is innocent, it’s burning up like angel wings. Oh my lord, I cannot sing! I’ve risen from the dead. This heart is made out of lead and what have you said? I forgot…I’m a freak? I’m just fucked without your love?
7.
Kingdom Come 03:29
Those were the days. I felt the love and no more shame. We flew high above the world. Turned the darkness away from the Earth. Kingdom Come our days are done. Kingdom Come our days are done. The weight won’t let me go. It breaks my back and tears a hole. Travels through space and time. I think that I’m going to lose my mind. Kingdom Come our days are done. Kingdom Come our days are done. Stay in pale moonlight, stand your ground and choose your side We don’t believe you anymore. We’ve all crawled on your killing floor. Kingdom Come our days are done. Kingdom Come our days are done.

You're looking back at what went way too far Got your head in your hands and your mind's in the stars It's all a burned out love It's all a burned out love There was a time when you had everything There was nothing in the world that your love couldn't bring It meant everything, it meant everything It's not enough because they're not here There’s no more time, it blows your mind. You never know what's coming around until it becomes after then. Then it's too late my friend. It's been a year but it won't seem that long Since the other half left and you had to take it all on Now they're gone, there's always something wrong. Then how would you know, what's the best thing to do? When they take it all away so there's nothing to choose But instead you lose There's nothing left to do They're not here yet they know that the cracks are beginning to show You never know what's coming around until it all becomes after then Then it's too late my friend It all becomes after then Then it's too late my friend It all becomes after then Then it's too late my friend

When you left the city your eyes were closed When you left you were pretty, now you're tired and old The dime messiah has gone and left (He’s) living with two wrist out, he'll never let us forget Up by a winter field There's a tree in white Come on baby how does it feel? To lose your mind When you left the table they followed you home The knives and daggers Blood, flesh and bone The moon was shining out there, a cursed white stone And you were crying, crying trying to let it go Up by a winter field There’s a tree in white Come on baby how does it feel? Are you still all right?
10.
No one lives by the hanging tree Except two girls with ribbons and bows There they cry all day There they don't want to stay I can't let them go In their heads They are dancing on a frozen sea In their heads They are playing with bloody leaves Heard a song for the lonely girls Heard a lone church bell ring Blue bird he took flight into the midnight sky As my rope gently swings In their heads They are dancing on a frozen sea In their heads They are playing with bloody leaves
11.
As the last bit of air from lungs Leaves my lips to the sky up above I'll be looking down at this world and her endless beauty As I race past the moon and the stars I remember the warmth of your arms Then all your love will shower down upon me as I bid you all farewell Nothing last forever Because Nothing last forever Because Nothing last forever And even though you want it to There is not a thing you can do Because nothing last forever Here we are one mind No war, no hate, no lies Soon you'll all see that the illusion is only skin deep As tears of joy start to fall like rain drops on you all Please remember this The love that connects us is endless We’ll all start again. Because Nothing last forever Because Nothing last forever Because Nothing last forever And even though you want it to There is not a thing you can do Because nothing last forever It comes to an end in a blink of an eye It’s reason to dance, not reason to cry It comes to an end in a blink of an eye It’s reason to dance, not reason to cry
