(Lyrics to the Full Album on one page)

Ocean Floor

When did we become these sinking stones?
When did we build this broken home?
Holding each other like ransom notes
Dropping our hearts to grip our brother's throat

I'm on the bottom of the ocean floor
Eye for eye, drowning just to keep the score
Blaming the world outside ourselves
Surrounded by mirrors in a sinking shell

This is the Time (Ballast)

When did we become these sinking stones
When did we build this broken home
Holding each other like ransom notes
Dropping our hearts to grip our brother's throat

You can't see because you don't know
You're caught below, beneath your own shadow
Stuck inside, half alive
Do you ever stop to ask yourself why
Close your mind, identify
Do you feel, do you feel
Do you call this a life
All you waited for
Drowning just to keep score

We always start with good intentions
But lose ourselves along the way

This is the time that we let it go
These are the words that will take us home
Singing the song that's inside us all
If we don't open our eyes we're walking blind

Anchored in anger, we exile ourselves
Bitter blood builds our prison cell
Darker water now fills our lungs
The depths of our heart have blacked the sun

You can't see because you don't know
You're caught below, beneath your own shadow
Stuck inside, half alive
Do you ever stop to ask yourself why
Close your mind, identify
Do you feel, do you feel
Do you call this a life
All you waited for
Drowning just to keep score

We always start with good intentions
But lose ourselves along the way

This is the time that we let it go
These are the words that will take us home
Singing the song that's inside us all
If we don't open our eyes we're walking blind

Naked we come, naked we leave
Fools we are, to hold tightly
We are the jail, we are the key
We are free, we are free

This is the time that we let it go
These are the words that will take us home
Singing the song that's inside us all
If we just open our eyes

This is the time that we let it go
This is the pain we are forced to know
Singing the song that's inside
Inside us all, inside us all

Walking Blind

Christ Copyright

Don't form thoughts, trust politicians
Forfeit soul, pursue religion
Lose free will to gain protection
Sink the ship with good intention

See our minds become conditioned
As we swear by these traditions
Lose our hearts and breed division
Oh my God why can't we wake up... wake up?

They're selling Heaven tonight - oh!
Sign on the dotted line - oh!
They've got your Christ on copyright

To think you know who goes to Heaven
Is just one big misconception
Like God hates fags and communism
Create fear to feed the system... feed the system

Oh!
They're selling Heaven tonight - oh!
Sign on the dotted line - oh!
They've got your Christ on copyright

Oh!
They're selling Heaven tonight - oh!
Sign on the dotted line - oh!
They've got your Christ on copyright

We are not machines
We are not machines
We are not machines
We are not machines
If they scream loud
They might muscle the crowd
But we won't bow down
No, we don't bow down

Oh!
They're selling Heaven tonight
But it's not alright

Oh!
They're selling Heaven tonight - oh!
Sign on the dotted line - oh!
They got your Christ on copyright

Selling Heaven tonight
Sign on the dotted line
It's not alright, it's not alright
It's copyright

Mr. MTV

Free drugs, Cheap sex
Fake tans, Big breasts
High times, Pimped rides
Lost days to blackout nights

I need this, I need that
I'm not complete with what I have
If I do this, If I buy that
I'll get mine, I'll get mine

I want, I want, I want...

(Chorus)
Empty me, empty nation
Emptied us of inspiration
Bastard sons and broken daughters
All bow down to our corporate father

In my iLife, In my iWorld
On my iPhone, With my iGirl
Just one bite to understand
Even Eve couldn't live without the iPlan

I want, I want, I want life
I want, I want, I want...

(Chorus x2)
Empty me, empty nation
Emptied us of inspiration
Bastard sons and broken daughters
All bow down to our corporate father

I want, I want, I want
I want, I want, I NEED IT

I! Do this, I! Buy that
I! Get my drugs and sex
I! Do this, I! Buy that
I! Get my drugs and sex
More drugs, Want sex, Need sex

MTV, MTnation
MTus of inspiration
Bastard sons and broken daughters
All bow down to our corporate father

(Chorus)
Empty me, empty nation
Emptied us of inspiration
Bastard sons and broken daughters
All bow down to our corporate father

Corporate father!
Bastard sons and broken daughters
All bow down to our corporate father

I! Do this, I! Buy that
I! Get my drugs and sex

First Punch

(Verse)
Another day stuck in repeat
Another someone judging me
Another hour I hold it in
Another time I force a grin

(Verse)
Another god who doesn't speak
Another leader that's a thief
Another day without a choice
Another day without a voice

(Pre-Chorus)
I'll hold it in, I'll hold it in, I'll hold it in,
Forget it, now

(Chorus)
I'll throw the first punch
'Cause I've kept my mouth shut
For far too long, Enough's enough
And you say I'm wrong, but it feels right
And it's about damn time,
It's been too long
Enough's enough enough
Enough's enough
Enough's enough

(Verse)
Another time that I get burned
Another way that I've been hurt
Another year too little pay
Another person in my way

(Verse)
Another lover says goodbye
Another lack of reasons why
Another day I'll let it slide
Another way you try to change my life

(Pre-Chorus)
I'll hold it in, I'll hold it in, I'll hold it in,
Forget it, now

(Chorus)
I'll throw the first punch
'Cause I've kept my mouth shut
For far too long, Enough's enough
And you say I'm wrong, but it feels right
And it's about damn time,
It's been too long
Enough's enough enough
Enough's enough
Enough's enough
Enough's enough

Right between the eyes, Forget it
Right between the eyes, Forget It
Right between the eyes, Forget It
Right between the eyes, Forget It Forget It

I'll throw the first punch
'Cause I've kept my mouth shut
For far too long
(I'll hold it in, I'll hold it in, I'll hold it in)
Forget it, now

(Chorus)
I'll throw the first punch
'Cause I've kept my mouth shut
For far too long, Enough's enough
And you say I'm wrong, but it feels right
And it's about damn time,
It's been too long
Enough's enough enough
Enough's enough
Enough's enough
Enough enough enough enough

The Matthew Effect

(Verse)
You've been sucking tit
Asleep in your cradle
Given the world
You're still ungrateful
You bitch and whine
You're always entitled
You blame Mommy and Daddy
You think you're Jesus Christ

(Verse)
You've been sucking tit
Safe in your cradle
Given the world
But somehow unable
If talk is the game
Then you take the title
Your day is coming
Despite your denial

(Pre-Chorus)
Like a parasite, you got the easy life
I'm the hand that feeds,
You're the dog that bites

(Chorus1)
I'll be breaking, breaking, breaking your pride
You're sucking, sucking, sucking me dry
One day you'll realize,
You're no Jesus Christ

(Verse)
I dream of the day,
Your eyes are ripped open
You eat your words
Spit up and start choking
Talk like a man
But walk like a child
Your day is coming, Despite your denial

(Pre-Chorus)
Like a parasite, you got the easy life
I'm the hand that feeds,
You're the dog that bites

(Chorus2)
I'll be breaking, breaking, breaking your pride
You're sucking, sucking, sucking me dry
One day you'll realize,
Why can't you realize?

(Chorus1)
I'll be breaking, breaking, breaking your pride
You're sucking, sucking, sucking me dry
One day you'll realize,
You're no Jesus Christ

Give up, step back, rewind, repeat

And then you'll see one day
That you could be like a star someday

(Chorus2)
I'll be breaking, breaking, breaking your pride
You're sucking, sucking, sucking me dry
One day you'll realize,
Why can't you realize?

(Chorus1)
I'll be breaking, breaking, breaking your pride
You're sucking, sucking, sucking me dry
One day you'll realize,
You're no Jesus Christ

Breaking, breaking, breaking
Breaking, breaking, breaking
One day you'll realize,
You're no Jesus Christ

I'll Be Ok

(Verse)
We live in the rain, a sea of change
You can't keep anything you take
The lovely face of lives we chase
Is but dust for wind to take
When all is gone, the only loss
Is to not have loved at every cost
When you can say, and I can say
We loved with every step we take, I'll be ok

(Chorus)
How do you love when your heart is broken?
How do you speak when you feel outspoken?
I can forgive and be forgiven
By learning to heal with a heart wide open

(Verse)
With open hearts, despite the stakes
We take a chance on our mistakes
A brand new day, we will embrace
An open wound that heals with grace
All the fears that we will face
In this time, and in this place
When you can say, and I can say
We loved with every step we take, I'll be ok

(Chorus)
How do you love when your heart is broken?
(How do you love when your heart is broken?)
How do you speak when you feel outspoken?
(How do you speak when you feel outspoken?)
I can forgive and be forgiven
(I can forgive and be forgiven)
By learning to heal with a heart wide open

I'll be ok...
I'll be ok...

(Verse)
We live in the rain, a sea of change
You can't keep anything you take
The lovely face of lives we chase
Is but dust for wind to take
When all is gone, the only loss
Is to not have loved at every cost
When you can say, and I can say
We loved with every step we take, I'll be ok

(Chorus)
How do you love when your heart is broken?
(How do you love when your heart is broken?)
How do you speak when you feel outspoken?
(How do you speak when you feel outspoken?)
I can forgive and be forgiven
(I can forgive and be forgiven)
By learning to heal with a heart wide open
(How do you love when your heart is broken?)

I'll be ok...
(How do you love when your heart is broken?)
I'll be ok...
(How do you love when your heart is broken?)

I'll be ok...
I'll be ok...
(When your heart is broken?)
(How do you love when your heart is broken?)

We live in the rain...
We live in the rain...
We live in the rain...

Here's To The Heartache

(Verse)
What if I told you life was built to break?
What if I warned you, you can't outrun your fate?

(Pre-Chorus)
Would you believe with time comes grace?
In perfect light, in perfect place
Every dream was mine to lose
And that's what it took to lead me to you

(Chorus1)
So here's to the heartache
And here's to the mistakes
We'll drink to all the years, the tears
That led to this place

So here's to the heartache
(Verse)
And what if I told you that everything fades away?
What if I hold you, but tell you there's just no escape?

(Pre-Chorus)
Would you believe with time comes grace?
In perfect light, in perfect place
Every dream was mine to lose
And that's what it took to lead me to you

(Chorus1)
So here's to the heartache
Here's to the mistakes
We'll drink to all the years, the tears
That led to this place

(Chorus2)
Here's to the dark days
It's been a long wait
We'll drink to all the years, the tears
That led to this place

(Bridge)
I'll suffer, I'll bleed
Lose everything
I'll get my wings
Fall from belief
Fall to my knees
And you will see

With time comes grace

(Chorus1)
Here's to the heartache
Here's to the mistakes
We'll drink to all the years, the tears
That led to this place

(Chorus2)
Here's to the dark days
It's been a long wait
We'll drink to all the years, the tears
That led to this place

(Chorus1)
So here's to the heartache
And here's to the mistakes
We'll drink to all the years, the tears
That led to this place

With time comes grace
With time comes grace

If I Were

(Verse)
Just tell me, tell me how to keep this
And I'll be alright
Just tell me, tell me what's the secret
And I'll hold it tight
Because I don't want to spend another moment without you again
Just tell me, tell me how to keep this so it never ends

(Chorus)
If I were God, just for a day
I would be guilty of letting the whole world slip away
I wouldn't change, no, I wouldn't change a thing
I'd leave the mistakes
I'll take the blame
And I'll use the chance to keep you just the same
If I were, if I were God just for a day

(Verse)
Don't tell me, tell me how it changes
It's you I can't replace
Don't tell me, tell me that we're hopeless
I can learn from my mistakes
Because I don't want to spend another moment without you again

(Chorus)
If I were God, just for a day
I would be guilty of letting the whole world slip away
I wouldn't change, no, I wouldn't change a thing
I'd leave the mistakes
I'll take the blame
And I'll use the chance to keep you just the same
If I were, if I were God just for a day

Keep you just a day
Keep you just a day

If I were God, just for a day
I would be guilty of letting the whole world slip away!

(Chorus)
If I were God, just for a day
I would be guilty of letting the whole world slip away
I wouldn't change, no, I wouldn't change a thing
I'd leave the mistakes
I'll take the blame
And I'll use the chance to keep you just the same
And I don't wanna stay another moment
And I don't wanna stay another moment
No I don't wanna stay another moment
And I don't wanna stay another moment

Become you!
Become you!
Become you!

Friendly Fire

I don't care about the story
I don't care about the myth
I don't care how you see my life
You haven't witnessed it
Use fear as a weapon, and pity as a whip
Convince everyone around
That I'm a piece of sh...

(Verse)
Enter scene, enter Judas
Give me a kiss
You sold me out... hold on, wait... what did I miss?
Gossip gets you off
But you couldn't resist

(Pre-Chorus)
Make me a sinner
Because you paint the picture
Buy your believers,
You couldn't resist, you couldn't resist

We're on the same side

(Chorus)
Friendly fire - Honest liar
Friendly fire - Honest liar
Friendly fire - Honest liar
Friendly fire - Honest liar

(Verse)
Exit scene, dim the lights
Now here comes the twist
You did this for me?... hold on, wait... what did I miss?
Your good intentions?... ha, ha
What do you get out of this... get out of this?

(Pre-Chorus)
Make me a sinner
Because you paint the picture
Buy your believers,
You couldn't resist, you couldn't resist

We're on the same side

(Chorus)
Friendly fire - Honest liar
Friendly fire - Honest liar
Friendly fire - Honest liar
Friendly fire - Honest liar

(Bridge)
Does it make you feel alive?
Does it make you feel so high?
How does it feel?, How does it feel?

(Verse)
So you think it's your place
And you think you're so brave
Shit-slinging
I'll tell you now what I see
A child's insecurities projecting
From the sidelines, a critic
A voice that won't admit it
That you have never risked it
How vicarious the cynic
My Judas, my brother
My Judas, my brother

Does it make you feel so high?
Does it make you feel so high?

Does it make you feel alive?
Does it make you feel so high?
How does it feel?, How does it feel?

Friendly fire - Honest liar
Friendly fire - Honest liar

Sex & Lies

Black Dress, white lies
Loose friends, and some cheap wine
I've always been so trusting, my dear
A back room, on your backside
I'm backstabbed, as you backslide
Your knees are always bruised and red, dear

I've never been the one to doubt
But I wonder, wonder, wonder...
I wanna hear it from the whore, horse's mouth

I caught you sleeping around
You had me fooled until now
It's over, we're over, and I'm done

Give 'em sex, give me lies
I know the truth behind your eyes
You always pass the blame so well, dear
Save your tears
Don't waste your breath
You've said it all
And there's nothing left
You're lying in the bed you made, dear

Thanks for ending all my doubt
I wonder, wonder, wonder...
But I still get sick when I think of you spreading your legs

I caught you sleeping around
You had me fooled until now
It's over, we're over, and I'm done
Now that you've slept with the town
I'll burn this damn place to the ground
Because we're over, over

You run your mouth
You scream and shout
That you're different now
It was so hard to believe
But now I can see, we're nothing more
So let me just say what I mean
You're not what I need,
You never were
You never were
You never were!
You never were
Of you spreading your legs

I caught you sleeping around
You had me fooled until now
It's over, we're over, and I'm done
Now that you've slept with the town
I'll burn this damn place to the ground
Because we're over now

Over now

Surface Flames

I don't care about the story
I don't care about the myth
I don't care how you see my life
You haven't witnessed it
Use fear as a weapon, and pity as a whip
Convince everyone around
Friendly fire!

How does it feel?

Friendly fire - Honest liar

Liar!

Take A Bullet

Silence, is your enemy
Because you're afraid,
That we'll all see

Silence, The more you speak
The less I believe,
You plant words like weeds

Scream loud (You'll never fool me)
Sing out (You'll never fool me)
Hear now (You'll never fool me)
Do you see how fake you sound?

Your lips are poison and sweet
But love doesn't come cheap
Talk is nothing to me
Take a bullet for me
Maybe then I'll believe

Righteous, you claim to be
Put your forked tongue, behind your teeth

Scream loud (You'll never fool me)
Sing out (You'll never fool me)
Hear now (You'll never fool me)
Do you see how fake you sound?

Your lips are poison and sweet
But love doesn't come cheap
Talk is nothing to me
Take a bullet for me
Maybe then I'll believe

Your words are poison and sweet
But trust doesn't come cheap
Talk is nothing to me
Take a bullet for me
Maybe then I'll believe

Maybe then I will see
Maybe then you could be
Something more than just air
Coming out when you speak
Maybe then I'll believe

Take a bullet!

Your words mean nothing to me
It's time to eat what you speak
Take a bullet for me
Maybe then I'll believe

Your lips are poison and sweet
But love doesn't come cheap
Talk is nothing to me
Take a bullet for me
Maybe then I'll believe
Maybe then I'll believe

You're the wolf in the sheep
But you'll never fool me

I will never believe

Jenny

(Verse)
A little sleep, a little slumber
A little folding of the hands
Left you weak, left you hungry
When there's supply you still demand

(Verse)
You're beginning to drag the ones you love down
Will this phase ever end?
A thousand arms to hold you
But you won't reach for any hands

(Pre-Chorus)
'Cause I don't feel like I'm getting through to you
Let me paint this clear, life is short, my dear
See your mother here, her last painful year
I wish you only knew...
She stuck around for you
She stuck around for you

(Chorus)
Maybe you should just fall
Leave the world and lose it all
And if that's what you need
To finally see
I'll be with you through it all

(Verse)
Bring on the pills, roll that dollar bill
Medicating will never heal
Relapse, rehab, repeat
Always thinking about the me, me, me

(Verse)
Self-destruct, spiral down
Until your want becomes your need
Please get up like I know you can
Or forever love the fall

(Pre-Chorus)
'Cause I don't feel like I'm getting through to you
Let me paint this clear, life is short, my dear
See your mother here, her last painful year
I wish you only knew...
She stuck around for you
She stuck around for you

(Chorus)
Maybe you should just fall
Leave the world and lose it all
And if that's what you need
To finally see
I'll be with you through it all
I'll be with you through it all

(Bridge x2)
I can't stand to see you down
Strung out, off the wagon, and unwound
Steady....steady...Oh God, Jenny
I can't bear to hear the sound
Of your body hitting the ground

Oh Jenny Jenny Jenny

Stuck around for you
He stuck around for you
Stuck around for you

(Chorus2)
Maybe you should just fall
Leave the world and lose it all
And if that's what you need
To finally see
She loved you through it all

Maybe you should just fall
And if that's what you need
To finally see
She loved you through it all

I'll be with you through it all!

God Went North

A hospital bed
A room filled with flowers
Every monitor beep keeps the time
As I count down the hours
The petals they weep
They're uprooted like me
Cut from the cord of their mother
Who created everything

If You won't save her
Please just take her away

She pulls me close
Says that she loves me
That she wishes to still be around
On the day that I marry
Tightly she holds
But the plan still unfolds
Cutting the cord from the mother
Who gave me everything

If You won't save her
Please just take her
Nothing breaks her away
From the promise of a better day

This is the moment of glory
Hallelujah
This is the moment of glory
Hallelujah
This is the moment of glory
Hallelujah
This is the moment of glory
Hallelujah

It may feel like God went north
And left you to be
But all you need to know
Is you have everything you need
It's just a blink of an eye
Until the next time we meet
I'll hold you 'til the end
I'll hold you 'til you're free

If You won't save her
Please just take her
Nothing breaks her away
From the promise of a better day

If You won't save her
Please just take her
Nothing breaks her away
Because she'll keep holding on

I'll hold you 'til the end
I'll hold you 'til the end
I'll hold you 'til the end
I'll hold you 'til the end

Keep holding on
Keep holding on
Keep holding on
Keep holding on
Keep holding on
Keep holding on
Keep holding on
Keep holding on
Keep holding on
Keep holding on

Pyre

When you opened your eyes on the world for the first time as a child; how brilliant the colors were; what a jewel the sun was; what marvel the stars; how incredibly alive the trees were... And to love again and again, and have people to whom we are deeply attached go to sleep and never wake up... and the laughter echoes only in one's mind... but then the echo goes... the memory, the traces are all gone.

All your efforts, all your acheivements, all your attainments turning into dust, nothingness... what is the feeling? what happens to you?


The idea of God as the potter, the architect of the universe, it makes you feel that life is, after all, important, that there is someone who cares. It has meaning, it has sense, and you are valuable in the eyes of the father. But after a while it got embarrassing, the superstition, the myth, the absolutely unfounded idea... why does anybody believe that?


So you become an atheist, and then you feel terrible after that because you got rid of God... but that means you got rid of yourself, you're just nothing but a machine... And your idea that you're a machine is just a machine too... (a machine in the system)...

So if you think that that's the way things are, you feel hostile to the world. You feel that the world is a neurological trap into which you somehow got caught... trapped... You run from the maternity ward to the crematorium and that's it... that's it... So if you're a smart kid you commit suicide.

Now I want to propose another idea all together... The real you, is not a puppet which life pushes around. The real you, the real deep down you, is the whole universe. You cannot confine yourself to what happens inside the skin. Your skin doesn't separate you from the world, it's a bridge. But just as a magnet polarizes its-self in north and south but its all one magnet, so experience polarizes itself as "Self" and "Other", but it's all one.

What you call the "External world" is as much YOU as your own body. Most people think that when they open they're eyes and look around that what they are seeing is outside... it seems, doesn't it, that you are behind your eyes. We haven't realized that life and death, black and white, good and evil, being and non-being, come from the same center.

When you look for your own particularized center of being which is separate from everything else, you wont be able to find it. The only way you'll know it isn't there is if you look hard enough, to find out that it isn't there. It isn't there at all, there isn't a separate you. There are, in physical reality, no such things as separate events.

People can't be talked out of illusions. If a person believes that the earth is flat, you can't talk him out of that, he knows that it's flat. He'll go down to the window and see that its obvious, it looks flat. So the only way to convince him that it isn't is to say, "Well let's go and find the edge".
