Moving Land 03:21
The crows shake and shriek On the streets where the preach We need to speak To giant hearts and hands Waiting for command To move the land We try to shine We try to shine It's hard not to cross the line The shadows cast The shadows cast The darkest when we contrast Ritual events A thin love protests Our own lament Stranded in the grain The journey drifts away And dies in vain We try to shine We try to shine It's hard not to Cross the line The shadows cast The shadows cast The darkest when we contrast Then a parade swept right in Beaming out the light from within Then a parade swept right in Lifting all the grief of what has been Forevermore, forevermore Hundreds of years speak for Forevermore, forevermore A prisoner of love and war Forevermore, forevermore Hundreds of years speak for Forevermore, forevermore A prisoner of love and war

The victims will claim They have been framed The victims will claim Consider the crooks Formulas from books Consider the crooks Bundle chapters Try and remember Grasping out for fewer heights Propelling towards What is mine is yours This ending of yours Blades of sweet reward Mortar style mantras Take ahold of the helm again All the colors blend into one Old birds can't fly With broken wings Old birds won't fly The past terrain Of stale oil stains Wave in their brains Bundle chapters Try and remember Grasping out for fewer heights Propelling towards What is mine is yours This ending of yours No longer can you hoard Try not to lie to each other The golden rule will stand All the colors blend to one Phase over the faces Frames of themes and places Phase over the faces Frames of themes and places Phase over the faces Frames of themes and places Phase over the faces Frames of themes and places Propelling towards What is mine is yours This ending and more Sounding with these chords Mortar style mantras Take ahold of the helm again All the colors blend into one

Animal Form 02:58
Time to tear down the fort And lay down our arms Put aside the grudge All of it, everything 'cause I've had enough And you've had enough Let's walk away as parted strays To the days when I met her To the days that were better Let it all slip away And as time goes by I'm sure I'll be fine And when I think back That I took the chance It's what matters the most It won't bother me The path that I chose Was chosen for me We will hold down the fort And open up our arms Put aside the grudge All of it, everything 'cause I've missed too much I've been out of touch Let's take a day as birds of prey To the days that were darker To the days that were harder Let it all slip away And as time goes by I'm sure I'll be fine And when I think back That I took the chance It's what matters the most It won't bother me The path that I chose Was chosen for me

Central 03:06
The decisions are defeating As cold as slate It keeps repeating The shipwreck is waiting To affect the tides Trapped on the inside The decisions are defeating As cold as slate It keeps repeating The shipwreck is waiting To affect the tides Trapped on the inside Ooooo ooooo whoa ooooo Ooooo ooooo whoa ooooo It's hard to believe But it's everything you hoped You hoped It's hard to believe But it's everything you hoped And more To turn your back On what you know To beat your fists Until they're broke It's hard to believe But it's everything you hoped You hoped The decisions are defeating As cold as slate It keeps repeating Racking tracks Lined and wrecked We expect a hex From the hot steel beds The decisions are defeating As cold as slate It keeps repeating Racking tracks Lined and wrecked We expect a hex From the hot steel beds Ooooo ooooo whoa ooooo From the hot steel beds Ooooo ooooo whoa ooooo From the hot steel beds It's hard to believe But it's everything you hoped You hoped It's hard to believe But it's everything you hoped And more To turn your back On what you know To beat your fists Until they're broke It's hard to believe But it's everything you hoped You hoped

Midnight Sun 03:44
The facts are these You're haunted by your past First you try to change But it won't last And all your waking hours Spent on the lost The reason the season won At no cost Under the midnight sun Fire and guns Under the midnight sun Fire and guns Under the midnight sun Fire and guns Under the midnight sun This is where our fire sleeps After a waltz in the streets At a glance The passion danced The meek and the bold Were in a trance The planet's habits Will never cease Until the two become a piece You've provoked me I can't control my temper I tried to move on But babe, you know better They lie just like you and me They lie just like you and me This stigma stains our soul This stigma stains our soul This stigma stains our soul We don't have a place to go Whoa - whoa whoa whoa! The facts are these The cultures will adapt A future of change An atomic mass Running out of bounds Like a snake in the grass We are a slaving working class It's false to say As the stories shift Like tectonic plates That move with this riff The collision is late For its big hit The reason we see It's begun to split Under the midnight sun Fire and guns Under the midnight sun Fire and guns Under the midnight sun Fire and guns Under the midnight sun This is where our fire sleeps After a waltz in the streets At a glance The passion danced The meek and the bold Were in a trance The planet's habits Will never cease Until the two become a piece

Red and black And here and back Red and black And heart attacks Talking late I turned around You're staring at the sky Holding hands I held my breath Until I almost died My life is a catastrophe But it brings out the best of me Red and black And here and back Red and black And heart attacks Passing time I think too much I don't know what to do Up too late wondering if I did it all for you You know I did I can't fight luck or chemistry And it brings out the worst of me I can't fight luck or chemistry I don't know what you did to me You ruined everything I wouldn't change a thing You ruined everything, again La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la La-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la-la My life is a catastrophe But it brings out the best of me I can't fight luck or chemistry I don't know what you did to me

We are confused by rhyming the time Through the tops of the ol' pines Hawks are tethered to our chests Parts of earth crumble from our bones Drifting through space and the unknown Courting our worth to rustic thrones While old men bet their hearts in chess We wonder if it's all we have left And that's fine by me If that's as good as it gets We wouldn't ever think to settle for less Parts of earth crumble from our bones Drifting through space and the unknown Courting our worth to rustic thrones Passing by award winning hues Cryptic messages have been construed Rare scripts of writing warn: BEWARE While old men bet their hearts in chess We wonder if it's all we have left And that's fine by me If that's as good as it gets We wouldn't ever think to settle for less "In this age of uncertainty... When everything is slippery slope and relativity and our favorite saying is, 'whatever'. Here this miracle has happened between... I thought I finished crying... These two great chestnut trees deeply rooted in the nurture of the life and standing with us, young couple... deeply rooted in their love. I take refuge... in their witness.... for love... and helps me to understand that, strikingly simple, but profound statement that god is love."

Variables 04:00
A pendulum swings By rampant living things A pendulum swings Because we've met our defeat From problems we can't solve The moral high ground We'll drown before we are crowned The moral high ground We'll drown before we are crowned Justifying the right wrongs Now go and dust off your hands We'll admit today We've done enough decay We'll melt the skylines Just for the crime Gridlocked and extinct We've now met our defeat With an attitude in animal form Gridlocked and extinct We've now met our defeat Gridlocked and extinct We've now met our defeat We must remind ourselves to love Now go and dust off your hands We'll admit today We've done enough decay We'll melt the skylines Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-nah Na-na-na-na-na-na-na-na-nah Hoo-hoo na-na-na-hoo-hoo Na-na-na-nah-hoo-hoo Hoo-hoo na-na-na-hoo-hoo Na-na-na-nah-hoo-hoo Let's think about what we've been doing We'll take some time to think it through And maybe give ourselves some time to breathe

Let go Let go Before it's gone Vectors clash on Big black dots Spots and patterns Jolt like watts Vibes and vibrating blasts We seek and wince past Treading undertones When we seek we wince fast Vast flat bones on stone When we seek we wince fast Golden glands surpass When we seek we outlast WOO! All the time we have left We decide how it's spent All the time we have left We decide Vectors clash on Big black dots Spots and patterns Jolt like watts Stitch the trust Across the hatch Match and trace With grace attached Central realms are distant We seek and wince long Stations and static When we seek we wince strong Songs tune the magic When we seek we wince strong Drawn to the moon's scent When we seek we are gone WOO! Let go Let go Before it's gone
