Blind Honor 04:11
i dont believe in a war bypass the mind strike right to the body close your eyes and take a shot at a son wielding your fathers gun i dont believe in a war that leads to the afterlife to an afterparty in paradise i know it doesnt matter which side youre on so which side are you on so sick with blind honor sick enough to kill dad i wanna die for my country i wanna kill for my country i wanna kill for you who would you die for who'd you spill your guts who should pick them up put them on a truck and send them back home huh so sick with blind honor sick enough to kill im so proud of you son you finally undertstand what it takes you want the war you want my trust you want the war why should i trust you (open your arms) theres so many things you could not find but you could just forgive me (could you save me)

stand up with arms down peace is a painful compromise with arms and eyes wide open hoping for the best you are my brother and i will not suffer from fear that terror is near here im just a christian searching for his mission so come on and martyr me in the year of mercy nobody can hurt me the year of mercy im awake and alive and the spirits survived by the love of others and in unity i found gravity and the means to be better you are my brother did i stutter when i said id lay my life down for you just because youre a christian dont mean nothings missing youre just working towards heaven on earth in the year of mercy nobody can hurt me the year of mercy its in the air

blood drips down the page and i walk towards the other side i hear the whispers of the wind they talk to me i want to see but i can only feel forsaken fathers conspired against and written in the blood of sons its easier to let your old man down when youre not the one that won i felt a feeling hit me stronger than it has in a long felt the healing through the ceiling of my hold im at the mercy of a mystery the ghost that always pleads with me to never sell my soul but i dont wanna break your heart this moments too fragile to touch no i dont wannt break your heart this moments too fragile to touch its in the make up of men positive or negative we're til the end but i wanna see your dreams complete while i watch my dreams depleting but i dont wanna break your heart this moments too fragile to touch no i dont wannt break your heart this moments too fragile to touch so tell me all i need to hear and more fill me up with lies tell me what you need to hear and more ill build you up inside cus i dont wanna break your heart this moments too fragile to touch i dont wanna break your heart no i dont wanna break your heart

mercury is in retrograde with a girl i knew thats looking for the good old days she feeds her father rocks saying any minute he should wake right up praying to that big old ball of white saying everything will be alright the devil conducts his symphony of personality he feeds the children lies saying believe in only what you see with your own eyes and keep praying to that big old ball of white and pretty soon all will be alright well alright faith forged in fiction i can see the friction in your eyes faith forged in fiction i can hear you falter in your cries in your cries high and mighty moon the tides are rising above horizons where the fishes drink and where friendships sink saying it'll be alright been praying to that big old ball of white light faith forged in fiction i can see the friction in your eyes faith forge in fiction i can hear you faulter in your cries and the sun comes rising up and you're falling to your knees baby please get up before that fire burns you faith forged in fiction i can see the friction in your eyes faith forge in fiction i can hear you faulter in your cries

sitting on a chair talking to me said i know where we can play and its free im not sure who it was but someone was there it was either you or Bruno with the slicked back hair and dear friend why did you have to die i didnt have to write a song i didnt need to try the melody traced the memory of you i was only asking questions that left us confused i could feel the holy spirit twisting through the dark dance around the candles and tremble my heart but it was getting late and i had to go on past the blessed water and into the snow

they were shining flickering placed just quite out of reach every rich has its way of stealing life diamonds and jewels sucked on by fools just stealing life and oh i got so much farther to go oh and oh i got so much farther to go so much farther to go i cant hear anymore you know i lost it when i tossed it in the air and you carved out the clue so many people once held together by God's glue where are they now and oh they got so much farther to go ooh and oh they got so much farther to go so much farther to go and the days are slow when its time to go and the days are so slow when its time to go

Shadow 04:25
baby i get so tired so uninspired and i dont know why cus the days keep they keep getting older and i keep getting colder on the inside i want to love again i want to feel i want to touch again i need to hurt to heal to steal your heart we're so close and so far apart i said i just wanna live i said i just wanna give anything and everything to shine through this shadow echoes remain within the shadow of the city and peace will sustatin one day when love is ready to reign cus if rocky wilson and his monkey are not scared then neither am i he said i just wanna live he said i just wanna give anything and everything to shine through this shadow

Ether/Spill 06:50
Cecilia paints a picture of an image in my head its a cardinal and its blood red so watch it go into the snow it will fly and float forever your spirit rose these tears that froze they melt away just like ether ether everybody knows someone that knows something that no one knows so open up your mouth and shout about it and dont let skew the facts cus you warned us of an attack so have a drink with a ghost and make the most of the memories cus baby your secret aint safe with me im gonna spill cus baby your secret aint safe with me im gonna spill if nothing happened then nothing happened and if something happened then something happened so watch it go into the snow it will fly and float forever your spirit rose these tears that froze they melt away like ether just like ether ether
