track listing

We Are Bound

A slip of a tongue and fist
A slight of a hand like this
Touch of the fingertips
Ghost of a note we skipped

We are bound
We are falling through you
We are bound
We are falling through

Moment of bitter bliss
Licking our Judas lips
Throwing the timeless fit
With tongues of a fire we'd lit

We are bound
We are falling through you
We are bound
We are falling through

We follow sons amiss
The sons of the counterfeits
The devil has called me from inside

We are bound
We are falling through

Counterfeit sons
Counterfeit sons
Counterfeit sons

Stitches

I'm not the only one who sees them
I'm not the only one they keep up at night
I'm not the only one not sleeping
I'm not the only one who's dreaming out loud
Dreaming out

In stitches here tonight
We are ripping the seams
I'm pushing hard to tear it loose
In stitches here tonight
We are ripping the seams
There's something missing
Children of the in-between

[repeat]

Daylight To Break

{Ya I will im just gonna sing this track first}

Ive seen the darkest things
crawling inside of me
ive seen the monsters come alive
ive seen the enemy
the nightmare follows me
searching the darkness for a light

Waiting for daylight to break up this room
waiting for daylight to break
Ive been alone in the dark
Ive been dreaming
Now im waking up without you
Ive been waking up without you for too long

back in the tragedy
Ive made a mess of me
my bitter means my bitter ends
ive seen the irony
it gets the best of me
dying to be made new again

Waiting for daylight to break up this room
waiting for daylight to break
Ive been alone in the dark
Ive been dreaming the day when dreamers are awake
The sun hits my eyes and everythings alright
Ive been waking up without you
ive been waking up without you
ive been roaring at arms till you were in my arms
ive been waking without you
ive been waking up without you for too long

Waiting for to daylight to break up the room
waiting, waiting
ive been alone in the dark
ive been dreaming the day when dreamers are awake
the sun hits my eyes and everything alright
Ive been waking up without you
ive been waking up without you
ive been roaring at arms till you were in my arms
ive been waking up without you
ive been waking up without you for too long

Overthrow

All our pretty roads, fairy tales and crowns, broken on the floor
All our little words, love and peace and love, spoken with a sword
We say overthrow the government, put a new one up instead

If you can overthrow then overthrow,
If you can overthrow your soul
If you can overthrow then overthrow,
If you can overthrow your soul

Tell me how it goes, the one about the war,
the war that killed the king
Our hearts are still the same, stone and ice and steal
Lifeless hollow things
You say overthrow the government, who will save us from yourself?

If you can overthrow then overthrow,
If you can overthrow your soul
If you can overthrow then overthrow,
If you can overthrow yourself, yourself, yourself

Take me down and lock me up,
you can't change my head,
you can't change my heart
When this old life is done,
will we still be the stubborn souls we always were?
Today is our last change to turn around, to turn around
Yourself, yourself, yourself

If you can overthrow then overthrow,
If you can overthrow your soul
If you can overthrow then overthrow,
If you can overthrow your soul

Dirty Second Hands (Original Demo)

Please don't be so naive
You know you're not fooling anyone
You're not as tough as you think
With dirty second hands,
The dirty second hands

Can't get nothing for free
It becomes so predictable
You start fighting to breathe
The dirty second hands,
Your dirty second hands

Here's the face of everything that breaks you down
Now you face the face of everything that breaks you down

With an army of me
We invent our own enemies
Man verses machine
And the dirty second hands

In the land of the free
And the home of the remedy
The old clock is a thief
With dirty second hands

Are you really as tough as you think
You blink and you're over the brink
You bleed but you're blood runs pink
With dirty second hands, dirty second hands

You're not quite as tough as you thought
You bought the American rot
The very seed that you thought you shot
With dirty second hands, dirty second hands

You might be right,
The fight might be right inside you
The blind leading the lied to,
Tonight maybe you bind you with dirty second hands

Connect With The Spine

Take her like a photograph
Like any autograph
She'll find a way to go down
Watch her like a movie screen
Like any drama queen
She'll find a way to go down

Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah

Play it like a cameo
And watch her overflow
She'll find a way to go down
Running like a candidate
Like any minute made
You'll find a way to go down

I'm sick of the faces, the scene, and the light
We'll be fine when the faces connect with the spine

Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Yeah

Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Yeah

Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah
Yeah
