Track Name: The Few and Far Between
Afraid another cry from the weak
They're always buried
in the sheet of the weary
don't mind if I call you back
this voice is all I've ever had

I turned to watch the others
as they walked away
I couldn't see my lovers
as the crowd began to fade
as the clouds came in close
the smell of hope burnt in my clothes
I thought we could make it
before our colors would fade away

You've got your hands around my neck
you're stone cold but I'm feeling it
Dead eyed a son of a wreath
you're still alive but you seen nothing yet
wide eye with an empty chest
oh you haven't een a thing yet

Weary is the head that wears the crown

An eye for an eye
a tooth for a tooth
keep up with your lies
like they're something to prove
don't get carried away, carried away
I didn't think you were big enough to wager,
to wager all this

I turned to watch the others
as they walked away
I couldn't see my lovers
as the crowd began to fade
as the clouds came in close
the smell of hope burnt in my clothes
I thought we could make it
before our colors would fade away

where's your courage
where's your voice
raise the question
make the choice
where's your courage
where's your voice
raise the question
make the choice

All eyes off the captain
all eyes on me
I'll end the destruction
I'll set you free

I'll keep it to myself
and drag you underneath
what is it worth
what is it worth
to you
Track Name: Wishing Well, Wishing Well
Time says I never met you
forget get you
no way to regret you
But (if) I'm lying to myself
at the wishing well

She's seen all the faces
She's counting her sheep
She's patiently waiting
for her conscience to fall back to sleep
If you can see like me
you'd see her drowning in herself
oh well
oh well

If this is what bad luck tastes like I've had enough

There's something in the water
there's something in the water

And I'm starting to think
that I've been trying too hard
at living a life of fresher starts
woah woah
Now I'm staring at the ceiling
asking myself
if I was somebody else
would I still feel the same
or bury myself beneath all the water

I had to let you know
I'll have to let you go

If its not what you wanted
its not what you need
its time to be honest
honest with me

I had to let you know
I'll to let you go

(oh, oh well)
If its not what you wanted
its not what you need
ut you take it for granted
when you're down on your knees

Its not what you wanted
its not what you need
but you take it for granted
get off of your knees

If this is what bad luck tastes like I've had enough
if this is what bad luck tastes like I've had enough

There's something in the water
there's something in the water
Track Name: Down the Rabbit Hole
I'm the kind of man
that gives in
gives up
and lets go
but I would hold your hand through it all

I'm running away, from you. (a couple times)

And it takes a lot
to stay on top of what you love

I'm running away, from you(a couple more times)
Track Name: Seventh Son of a Severed Son
You're a son of no one
buried in filth
you don't mind the voices
they say what they will
the people they watch you
the people they judge
you won't stand up for yourself
you won't say what you want

Come as you are,
for the eyes of an unfair jury
there's no seat for the unfamiliar

You're a seventh son of a severed son
we're not the same
we're not the same
you're a seventh son of a severed son
you're falling short of
what you were meant to

emotions in the air
you are everything that they say
that they say about you
it's the difference between
want and need
and when do we leave
I'm leaving

you took the long road
into the valley
all you do is complain
that you are not the same
this is a real life
and its all over in the end

You're a seventh son of a severed son
we're not the same
we're not the same
you're a seventh son of a severed son
you're falling short of
what you were meant to be

We are equal
but we stand apart
with good intentions
we lack heart
to coexist
with the rest of the world
to coexist
with the rest of the world

You're a seventh son of a severed son
we're not the same
we're not the same
you're a seventh son of a severed son
you're falling short of
what you were meant to

we're not the same
we're not the same
your a seventh son of a severed son
you're falling short of
what you were meant to be
Track Name: Dead Speaker
Inside the babies
are left crying
outside the window's a storm
pull all the bodies
out of the water
let's get back to the norm

This city is falling
this city is burning
its like you'll never learn
I am the whisper in your ear
dead speaker

Hey it is me are you listening
to the things that I say
to the things that I say
Hey it is me I'm an entity
from identities once lost

pick up your feet when you are running
you're going nowhere fast
pick up these pages that I write
cause they are melodies
you'll sing when you are dead

listen to me
listen to me
they will haunt you
when you're sleeping
listen to me
listen to me
they will haunt you
while you're dreaming
(a few more times)

Just 'cause you're breathing doesn't mean you're alive
Just 'cause you're breathing doesn't mean you're alive
