Courage 03:20
There is nothin' but heartache To waste 'way a man For what you just started Will frequent near end An act in destruction That you never planned 'til then. You find out through voices That you had your chance Selective in choices Now you're hesitant Both feet are shot off Gun pointed at head Amen. But where did you go? But you let it not show You had courage to hold.

Insults 02:46
There was trouble afoot when the hand that i shook was to be my friend We had drinks at the bar, winked at the girl, then we paid her Did she not know it was us? When our temper's they grew cross, like her necklace But i was not mean cos you were that grain in my conscience It was done with a kiss but my french was amiss, like my choices And we came up for air and the sky it drew near, like them artistes And you moved in a way that your eyes felt betrayed, in what they thought of Clutching my ruin you took what you knew for your weapon (Cos) You, you & I, we both lived in this town You, you & I, we both trade on insults You, you & I, we both lived in this town You, you & I, we both stay away from

Can i tell you my tale? Something i know you’re after And it’s so hard to make sense With a room full of laughter And i put my head in my hands Then i’ll drink more to catch up To forget who i am You can call me disaster It’s too soon for your prayer Do you think that he’ll hear you As peculiar as is I’ll appeal to your humour And teasrs don’t suit you that well And that’s me being distant Always running around And making excuses Worry Not Now He said Worry Not Now He Said This will be our last dance As we smile to show mercy Better the truth as it were For them lies they can hurt you And i came this close to hell But i watched were i waited Convinced you were as there Just picking up pieces Worry Not Now He said Worry Not Now He said

Love Gone 03:15
Where has all the love gone? The writings on that wall And i thought that you had problems And i thought i had them all So where has all the love gone? And the wrtings on that tree Where we dance drunk in that graveyard Right next to where we’ll sleep We would shout from the rooftops Break our hearts just to please Where has all the love gone? As kept where secrets keep And every time’s the last time Both said it could not be And i lost my faith in whats not proven And the cost is killing me We would shout from the rooftops Break our hearts just to please Wash our hands of quilty closure Find our choices obsolete.

40 Days 03:55
40 Days has come an' gone, ain't heard from you in a month and i'm gone.. It's alright (x 2) I lie in my bed, look at the clock, ain't no noise 'cept the tick of the tock, It's alright (x2) If you ain't comin' around soon, i'm burnin' this house. Done all i can an' i messed up once, an' i cut myself an' i bought a gun, It's alright (x2) Just for fun i did sometime in a brokedown church where i lost my mind, It's alright, Said it's alright. An' if you ain't comin' around soon, i'm burnin' this house , Cos this ain't no way to spend a life Dear, An' i'm burnin' this house down. Bottle of Sin, no friend of mine, flew out the roof and into the night. It's alright, Said it's alright. An' i lit out the match, let out a laugh, Guess it was that cos the fire blew out, It's alright, it's alright. And if you ain't comin' around soon, I'm burnin' this house, Cos this ain't no way to spend a life Dear, An' i'm burnin' this house down. 40 days have come an' gone, Ain't heard from you in a month an' i'm done, It's alright , Said it's alright. Words by Somer White.

Eternity 02:25
For all of eternity Gone with this love i killed And i cannot be how i was And i threw out those fiary tales And all of those books we read And everything colour is dust Red was the kindness of roses Blue was truth you and I Green as we lay here In this forest I will wait by your side For all of eternity
7.
Demon 03:09
And if i were thy demon I would cross my heart each day And i’ll pray that i never will meet you But i know my path must stray And que your instant arrival That the sun tide would break But i left you just as i found you Cos my cousience prevailed And if i was to search for heaven Would your eyes they light my day And a first everlasting impression As you try to calm my way But we loved ourselves more than each other And at last a common mistake So forget i ever did ask you For my own names sake So if i were thy demon Were i wear a crown of thorns And apoligize for what reason As you try to do me harm Would you love me Just as a sinner And not as higher man And am i not as forgiven As to justify my end

Is your Heaven as clear as your Conscience, Does Hell bring Fear to your Life, Will the Devil appear in His detail, And Will i be a man to your Wife? Many rivers lay cold from this Winter, And the work here is middlin' dry, An' if i am to leave here in a coffin, When will i be a man to your Wife. And if you say No, Then Heaven will Fall, and if you say No!, Who'll answer your Call? Will the ground that i lay on be fertile? As you once were in my arms, But Murder is cruel with it's Kindness, And with my hands i did you this Harm. And with my hands i did you this Harm.

Dignity 05:14
I watched as you go down that river You went out to sea Always was a given Your curiosity Your hands are what would fight us Your feet would make me flee Your blood is what has taught us To keep our company And I never felt this humble You make me what i’ll be And we raise the dead of winter And you gave me what i need And i trust you’ll die with purpose Almost dignity And you act so instumental But life’s been good to me And this horror that seems normal Has made us what we’ll be
