Track Name: Life Inferno
If I couldn't stand on my own two legs,
I wouldn't blame it on the ground beneath my feet.
For I am the desert, devoid of life.
I am the icy sea chill, cutting like a knife.
I am the sky above, I am the earth below,
I am the whipping winds, freezing you to the bone.
I swear to god above, on this life both gift and curse,
If it can't get any better, I can't make it any worse.
I can't get no fucking satisfaction.
Track Name: Resilience On The Side Of The Road
The weather's stripped the paint on this side of town,
but that will do to mask the changes in these faces I have found.
They say don't blame the darkness (instead light a match).
We could be heroes too, but at the bottom there is no one left to catch.
I would pull down the stars from the sky, if that meant that the night would forget, that the weight of the earth is half that of my soul, if you made me whole, where did half of me go?
I would die in the gutter, if I could even crawl that far
but there's no strength left in these bones, so I'll stay here breathing in tomorrow.
The dead are spiteful of the life we regret, the one where we'd said that we'd never forget boys will be boys and we've all made mistakes, so of course we'd push through to become what we hate.
Fuck last chances, fuck this fuse in my skull.
Track Name: Fate
Do they the stones know that they stand so solid, or that when skipped into the sea they'll fall straight down to the bottom?
From the winters of New England under a frost bitten truth, while you'll feel the cold, the cold will never feel you.
I never know where I'm going, but I know where I've been, done scraping from the bottom going to take what I can.
I never know where I'm going, but I know where I've been, how can you start over if you're not at the end?
Get the rats off this sinking fucking ship.
We're wolves in the forest, you're all fucking sheep.
We're terror imagined, you're the blood in our teeth.
We are the wolves in the forest, you are the blood in our teeth.
Track Name: Dogma
The shadows gave way to the cold hearted grey, the unspeaking black and a belief in disarray.
I wasn't there at the beginning, I won't be there at the end, I cannot do this all over and start it again.
We are the median.
Can the faithless decide?
We are the median.
Faithfully live or fatefully die.
Yes those limbs are snapping, yes those branches are breaking, yes time stands still if continuing meant saying; "I remember it gets better, I thought someday it would, I can't forget the stay forever, I think I died where I stood."
But I can't tell if that's the sun going down, or if that's the heavens falling, crashing to the ground.
When the earth fucking burns and the plagues blow through , I'll be the only one left with a new age world view.
There is a feeling that I share in my bones in the graves; we may yet repent for our sins.
There is a feeling that I share in my bones in the graves; if my body is empty, why do I still where this skin?
And St. Peter says, "Hello new ghost."
Track Name: Dead Weight
A heart full of malice, well I guess we've been here before.
Another wasted moment and another and another.
No one said this would be easy, we didn't say this would be easy, no one said this would be easy, no one said this but you.
A single shadow growing long, this rooms been getting colder.
It must be hard to feign a smile with the whole world on your shoulders.
It's another wasted moment, it's another wasted breath, in another wasted second there will be nobody left.
Medusa, did you have this many snakes whispering into your ear? Well, hiss some new spite. There will be no porch lights left on for us tonight.
Track Name: Central Tree
Two old oaks grew on a hill where I was raised, they were both wise long before I was even alive. One came down, yet the other still grows. Twisted and ancient she was a twin with no match.
When we die, that oak will still thrive, those roots will grow deeper long after our lives.
When we die, that oak will still thrive, those roots will grow deeper long after our lives.
While the snow masks the sound for those sleeping below, the stonewalls are a framework for every smile that I ever got to know and our vision went dim on our yesterdays (I've seen much darker days).
Your past is gone, you are the only one who will still hold on.
Our past is gone and you are the only one who will still hold on.
Track Name: A Perfect Storm
I've been sailing this ship called Last Chance straight through this black-squall sea of disaster, but there's not much wind left in these sails and I don't think that I'm willing, willing to go down with this ship.
I tried to sell my soul to the devil, he said he didn't invest in wares this weathered.
We close our eyes, we died a long time ago, those weren't angels singing us to sleep.
You see it was never me that I was worried about, death will come to take you to I just pray that he takes me first.
Is there anybody out there willing to shelter us from this storm?
The fire in the lighthouse has burned out and I know of the violence on those shores.
Those weren't angels singing us to sleep.
Those weren't angels.
