Track Name: In Transition
In Transition

V.1
Every time you leave you take a little piece of me with you, and I don't know who you're selling these pieces to.
All I know is that your wallet is fat, every time I come wandering back to you.

V.2
Every time I go you sing your sad and sorry woes to me. You're preaching to the choir, yet you're so far out of key. All I know is that your life is in danger. You're a single devil in this choir of angels.

Pre.
And I go, oh so far away from home.
And I find it's tearing me apart on the inside.
And I know that I'm so hard to hold on, because I'm always in transition.

Ch.
You will find me, in transition.
Track Name: Tear Me Apart
Tear Me Apart

V.1
Open me up. You won't find what you want. Just some blood and guts and other stuff, but they don't count for much.
So wear me like a cardigan, some new loafers. I hope they fit and now, I hope you make better use of my skin than I did.

Ch.
Wear me out. Wear me thin.
Tear me apart from within.

V.2
Tear me apart, but please just leave my heart. It's black and blue and torn in two, and I swear it's all I've got that reminds me of me. A little scar, a tiny piece. Now I pray to statues in hope that they can save me.

Ch.
Wear me out. Wear me thin.
Tear me apart from within.
Please don't wait just to take another piece of my skin.

Br.
Hold me close, just don't let go now.
Hold me close, just don't let go.

Ch.
Wear me out. Wear me thin.
Tear me apart from within.
Please don't wait just to take another piece of my skin.

Out.
Take me down to the river. Hold my head under water.
Leave me there all alone. Tell everyone I am never coming home.
Track Name: Rise
Rise

V.1
I can take these sunglasses off. I can make use of my eyes again. I'm going to scream what I need to say because I can only feel this way once in my days.
I can take that veil off your eyes, and watch you blinking, in the sunlight. And I know that you'll do what I want you to do because you love the way, the way that I look at you.

Ch.
I can see the world for what it is, when I remove my hands from my eyelids.
I can see your face for what it is, a beautiful place for your eyes to live.

Int.
I've been coming clean with you and I've been telling you everything. And I will try to make this all okay.

V.2
I can break this glass under your feet. And they will find us dancing in the street. And I know that you'll do anything for me, because I'll be pulling that same glass out of my feet.

Ch.
I can see the world for what it is, when I remove my hands from my eyelids.
I can see your face for what it is, a beautiful place for your eyes to live.

Br.
Hush, little lady. You're going to make me go, a little crazy.
Sigh, my darling. It's too damn early in the morning....
For me to be awake, I can't wait another day, so that I can wake up next to you. But I've been trying, to sleep in.

Ch.
I can see the world for what it is, when I remove my hands from my eyelids.
I can see your face for what it is, a beautiful place for your eyes to live.
Track Name: Sleeping In Silence
Sleeping In Silence

V.1
Only you could find the time to make something beautiful out of so many things designed to break.
I've been trying to find, something else to waste my time.

Pre.
I found you.
I found trouble.

Ch.
I am watching you, lying there, sleeping in silence.

V.2
I don't think that you know what you've gotten yourself into.
I'd rather brave this tide a mile wide because I know that it will take me from you.
I've been waiting for some clever response to this.
I know you don't have the power to resist.

Pre.
I found you.
I found trouble.

Ch.
I am watching you, lying there, sleeping in silence.

Br.
You only sleep when the birds come out to sing, in the light of the rising sun.
You only wake when the wolves come out to bay at the moon, and you'll be one of them soon.

Pre.
I found you.
I found trouble.

Ch.
I am watching you, lying there, sleeping in silence.
Track Name: Shaking In My Bones
Shaking In My Bones

V.1
One man goes hungry, another gets wealthy, that's just how this story goes.
One man gets nothing, the other whatever he wants.
(whatever he wants)
One father lives to drink, while the other one lives to bury his first born. That's just how this story goes.
(we need to change who we are)

Ch.
It's got me shaking in my bones these days, and I've been dancing here for far too long. It's got me shaking in my bones these days. What the hell have I become?

V.2
One little boy lies, a younger girl cries. That's just how this story goes.
One son gets nothing, the other whatever he wants.
(whatever he wants)
One child learns to fear, all of those that he holds dear. That's just how this story goes...
(we need to change who we are)

Pre-Ch.
I'm so worried that my skeleton is trying to find a way, out of the skin that it’s so used to living in. God, I need it to stay.

Ch.
It's got me shaking in my bones these days, and I've been dancing here for far too long. It's got me shaking in my bones these days. What the hell have I become?
It's got me shaking in my bones these days.

Br.
We just can't wait around for this to get better. We all need to have a change of heart. We need to work and get our shit together, we need to change who we are.

V.3
We're feeding the rich, and taxing the poor. That's just how this story goes. One man gets nothing, the other whatever he wants.
(whatever he wants)
One man preaches that he's got a dream, and some others say this can't be a good thing.
That's just how this story goes.

Ch.
It's got me shaking in my bones these days, and I've been dancing here for far too long. It's got me shaking in my bones these days. What the hell have I become?
It's got me shaking in my bones these days. (We need to change who we are)
