Track Name: Defending Your Life
DEFENDING YOUR LIFE / / If I am on trial I won’t be there waiting to find what I’ve left behind and those I’ve failed, no. / I’ll run for my life without hesitating. I’ll beat the odds, I’ll fool the gods. For I’m not worth saving. / But I’ll push these lousy legs as long as they’ll last.
From here through eternity to pay for my past. / If I’m on trial, I won’t be here waiting to defend my life, with this dull knife.The white flag waving. / Then I’ll push these lousy legs as long as they’ll last.From here through eternity to pay for my past. I’m not fading out.
Track Name: The Worst Is Yet To Come
THE WORST IS YET TO COME / / A quiet truce abides, until the match is struck then we’re on fire. You’re faultless, with such might. These are skills I’ll never acquire. United and tied, are the consequences so dire? / Now I know you know. But if you could tell me one more time. / That “I’m alright.” I’m on your side, but I fear the worst is yet to come. / Faultless, you’re so right. (Is it) too late to call a ceasefire? United and tied, are the consequences so dire? / Now I know you know. But if you could tell me one more time. / “I’m alright.” I’m on your side, but I fear the worst is yet to come. I won’t fight, I’m quiet tonight, for the words have yet to come.
Track Name: Burnt Up
BURNT UP / / After all that I’ve lost now, you’d think that I would know. But all that time is gone now, maybe, and there’s nothing to show. / I’m dying to leave you, oh i’m trying to leave you. When I can, its true. Oh the things I’ve done for you. / After all that we’ve tossed now, you’d think that we would know. That when we’re done time’s not something that we can borrow. After all that we’ve lost now, you’d think that we would know.
It’s burnt up, its gone now baby. There’s nothing left to show. / I’m dying to leave you, oh I’m dying to leave you. When i can, we’re through. Oh the things I’ve done for you. / I’m dying to leave you, but I can’t.
Track Name: Gold
GOLD // I can still see the lights all aglow. The looks on their faces, the panic, the woe. What happened to them, I fear I’ll never know. Decadence left at the side of the road. / Then it hit me. And the sparks on the road, they ignited, and guided me home. To your face, its outlined in gold. Now I’m bracing to collide with you. / May all that you are be never unknown. Despite the debris I will make it home. What happened to me, I fear I’ll never know. But I know when I left I wasn’t alone. / Then it hit me. / Despite the debris I will make it home. I know when I left I wasn’t alone. What happened to them, well I’ll never know. Decadence left at the side of the road. / Then it hit me. / The sparks on the road. [They’ll never fade] They ignited, and guided me home [Home to your face] to your face. It’s outlined in gold. [And now I’ll brace] Now I’m bracing, to collide with you.
Track Name: Promise
PROMISE // I'll take something to believe, something with long sleeves. ‘Cause it's unpredictable. Now Jesus said he'd fill my needs, but my heart still bleeds. He's just not physical. / Now why can't I see? / If I look up and the sky's not there, is there any reason that I should be scared? When a promise is a promise. I know / Now we've established lack of sight, maybe vision's the right word for what I need. ‘Cause I can't see with human eyes. Lord knows I've tried to follow where he leads me. / Now why can't I see? / From what I've seen so far I can't believe my eyes. What a nice surprise.
Track Name: Unstoppable
UNSTOPPABLE // There’s a debt I can’t repay for the fees of yesterday. I always thought I would but I can’t seem to find time. The lesson of the day only led me astray. But I found the good in brotherhood and organized crime. / Now today we see the change, it’s not gone but re-arranged. We’re confined to contracts and culpable for countless dimes. But still the song remains the same. We’re like a candle to the flame. A backward way to savour remnants of a lifetime. / But somehow we manage to pay up and on time. For a life that’s on loan. Though the cost is hardly worth so much of our time, we don’t do it alone. / This obstacle
is unstoppable. It’s unstoppable now.
