Track Name: Bearclaw
We’ve broken through before
We know the truth
We’re looking through the walls
We don’t need more proof

I’m completely unraveled
I’ve been out in the rain
I hope to God I never
See a storm like that again

You gave me your diamonds
You’ve given me your rash
But I want more than poison oak
And a million bucks in cash

The music calls to you
And it knows your name
It tells you everything
Before the mailman came

I found me a letter
It came out of the trash
It turned my eyes to liquid
And my questions into ash

I’m completely unraveled
I’ve been out in the rain
I hope to God I never
See a storm like that again

You fed me your bacon
You’ve given me your sweets
But I need more than bearclaws
And a plate of breakfast meats

Now you gave me your diamonds
You’ve given me your rash
But I want more than poison oak
And a million bucks in cash
Track Name: See Your Lies
I see the traces of the bloodless revolution
In every face I see the agent of evolution
With God as man, woman as God
And all are loving
Know we are free and we can see
Don’t need no Bausch & Lomb

And it’s true that we don’t have no teeth
And it’s true that we don’t have no arms
And it’s you hiding just underneath
All the tricks and jokes you don’t need at all

If every hour of every day is your creation
Why do you sit there lost in boredom and stagnation?
The seeds of doubt inside my mind that have been planted
Are neither good nor bad nor useless
They are stepping stones

And it’s true that we don’t have no teeth
And it’s true that we don’t have no arms
And it’s you hiding just underneath
All the tricks and jokes that feed your lies

Lies
Embroidered with the mark of the beast
Lies, lies
Exploding right in front of your eyes
See your lies

And it’s true that we don’t have no teeth
And it’s true that we don’t have no arms
And it’s you hiding just underneath
All the tricks and jokes that feed your lies

Lies
Embroidered with the mark of the beast
Lies, lies
Rising with the sun in the east
Lies, lies
You’re stripping away every disguise
When you see your lies
Track Name: Ugly People Living in the Hole
Ugly people have more to prove
Ugly people have more to prove
Than the rest of the world
Than the rest of the world

And believe me you’re no beauty queen
Believe me you’re no beauty queen
No, not at all

You’ve got an attitude
I know you’re thinking that you got the right
Your face is carved with regret
You can’t remember your own name

Cuz I just want to know
How it feels to be out of control
And I want you to know
How it feels to be living in the hole

So you’re saying you got more to lose
Now you’re thinking you got more to lose
Than you ever did before
Than you ever, ever did before

We put your money on the table, please
Just be the monkey that we came to see
Or not at all

I see you twisting inside
I see you unspooling like a ball of twine
Don’t you wish sometimes
You’d been born somebody else?

Cuz I just want to know
How it feels to be out of control
And I want you to know
How it feels to be living in the hole
Track Name: Coming Into Slaughter
We
Came to see
What we don’t believe

Stuck in this bleeding moment
Popped blisters lead to scars
Over all our hearts

Coming into slaughter
Are you ready for the kill?
This is not a warning
It’s an avalanche

Always cozy
Sitting on the fence
Well excuse my soul
And bless your baby heart
Now you feel like dying
But in your own defense

You’re everything you wanted at all

And in this hour of weakness
The meekest ones preserve
What they don’t pervert

Coming into slaughter
Are you ready for a thrill?
Somehow you’d forgotten
You’re on overdraft

Always cozy
Sitting on the fence
Well excuse my soul
And bless your baby heart
Now you feel like dying
But in your own defense

You’re everything you wanted at all
Track Name: Honesty
In the hour
Of my frustration
My own creations
Have turned on me

I am tired
I am raw
But I’m willing

So now
Just take me as I am
Behind these wounded eyes
Is a strange and lucid dream

Tell me all you know
Just penetrate my mind
And help me find the way
Back to honesty

There’s a power
We are receiving
The unbelieving
Have turned away

We are tired
We are raw
But we’re ready

So now
Just take me as I am
Behind these wounded eyes
Is a strange and lucid dream

Tell me all you know
Just penetrate my mind
And help me find the way
Back to honesty
Track Name: Varicose Moon
Varicose moon
Why do you taunt me so?
Why do you haunt me
So religiously?

Up in the sky
In a sea made of lead
You mess with my head
So effortlessly

Pools
Your light flows in pools
In wading are fools
Drowning in memories of you

Varicose moon
You frighten me so
You tighten your grip
Almost nightly

When all are inside
Attempting to hide
I’ll know that you lied
To me
Track Name: Something to Believe In
After the collapse
We finally broke from the news
Were wounded by fate
And blinded by the lies of our reviews

It’s better for everyone
If you don’t close your eyes
The letters unsent were read
The day you realized

That what you wanted
Wasn’t what you needed
And what you want is
Something to believe in

Recover your tracks
Restore yourself to harmony
Remove the old face
And pluck out the eyes that don’t see

It’s better for everyone
If you can hear all voices

If what you wanted
Wasn’t what you needed
And what you want is
Something to believe in
Track Name: The Silence of the Night
You could wash our minds
With your velvet tongue
Leave a trail behind
For the frozen ones

But you won’t touch fate
Or make a sound
Never turn away

You made me wrong
You made me right
And didn’t ever need a hand
To paint the silence of the night

Would you lay me out
Under the summer sun
Make the stars rain down
On everyone

Who has lost their way
Who’ve been drowned in the sound
Build another face

You made me wrong
You made me right
And didn’t ever need a hand
But the silence left a void
And made a great idea

You made me wrong
You made me right
And didn’t ever need a hand

And when nothing’s as it seems
You know we’re only made of dreams

And the silence left a void
And bent your will to me
But the silence left a void
And killed this hysteria
And the silence left a void
And made a great idea
We’re not alone
Track Name: Be My Brain
Hey
I’m going away tonight
Cover up a fall from grace

Hey
You and me are going
Out of sight

Of this world
And its pain

Be my brain
Don’t go plain
Love likes strange
Feel again
Be my brain

Don’t turn away tonight
Let your vision fall and fade
Open up and close your eyes
Are you breathing?
Do you bleed?

Be my brain
Don’t go plain
Love likes strange
Feel again
Be my brain

Don’t go away
Love to stay
Free again
Be my brain
Track Name: All the Evil Things
And you will find yourself
Among the living dead
If certain forces
Place a pox upon your head

Nowhere to run, no way to scream
Nowhere to walk
Your eyes as red as blood
Your face as white as chalk

Today is the day
Whether you want it or not

And if it happened to me too
Well you know what I would do
I’d take a look at myself
Just to find out what it’s like

And when you turn away
From secrets that you keep
You’ll find they infiltrate
Your dreams when you’re asleep

No way to hide from
All the evil things you do
You’re staring right at them
And they’re looking at you

Today is the day
Whether you want it or not

And if it happened to me too
Well you know what I would do
I’d take a look at myself
Just to find out what it’s like
Track Name: The Very Eye of Night
I was just a number
Became the chosen one
Soaking in my slumber
All the secrets of the sun

All across the planet
The people do arise
Lifted from the prisons
That they built behind their eyes
And stripped of all disguise

We need to get out of here
To rebuild our stately home
And deliver the promise from the night

You swore to keep moving
But became mesmerized
Unbelievers, frozen in fright

I want to meet the angels
Of the cosmic resurrection
Completely free

While they fall deeper into sleep
We could build another reality
And our minds made us think that we were weak
Cause we don’t believe
In nothing we can’t hold in our hands

All the world’s an aardvark
Sifting through the sand
Searching for the lost spark
Inside our pineal glands

Bridge across the chasms
Of chaos, death and fear
The tintinnabulation of angels in my ears
The strangels reappear

We need to get out of here
To rebuild our stately home
And deliver the promise from the night



You swore to keep moving
But became mesmerized
Unbelievers
The frozen, the blind

I want to meet the angels
Of the cosmic resurrection
I want to meet the angels
Pure hearts and pure intentions

I want to peer into the very eye of night

While they fall deeper into sleep
We could build another reality
And our minds make us think that we are weak
If we don’t believe
In nothing we can’t hold in our hands
