Track Name: And Then We Heard the Birds
So seek shelter with me
This world has been changing for far too long
Everything I've come to know has gone away
And we're left to fend for ourselves
And fending off has become
Second nature to us

The sky is
Falling all around
And as it's crashing down
Our world is changing
We'll venture
Out into this waste
We need to fix this place
It's in need of saving

Don't seek a savior
No one can save us now but ourselves
When the heavens come crashing
And wings of steel come bearing gifts
For everyone below them
Below them

*To hide
And survive
Is our only option for now*

But the dust will settle
And we, soon will open
The vaults once again

I've been searching up and down for shelter
And I was hoping we could find it together
But I'm getting tired of trying
I'm just so sick of crying
Baby, won't you shelter me

Divert your eyes from the blast!
Track Name: Good Morning, Pumpkin
Open your eyes, I'll save you from this nightmare
Or at least I'll try
I make no promises but at least I'll get to say goodbye
To you
And everything you put me through
You dragged me down
For far too long, all I did
All I did was all for...

You only cared about what you wanted
Whatever happened to a united front
Now we're so divided
We're so divided

You shut your eyes, and we fell into this nightmare
And we fell apart
I would not have wasted so much time if I'd known that from the start

You won't lose sleep over me
You won't lose sleep over me

Wake up, please
Wake up for me
Track Name: The Ballad of Bobby 2-Step
His weight is no factor
Once his *feet start moving*
Faster and faster
Momentum is his best friend

Knock me down, as long as you help me up again
Knock me down, when all hands reach for fallen friends

It's like the music takes over
It's like he's *not a mortal man*
Say what you like about his life
His skin bares wisdom for his friends

Knock me down, as long as you help me up again
Knock me down, when all hands reach for fallen friends

His rules are those amongst us
A gladiator on the floor
All hands on fallen friends
A gentleman in this scene
His rules are those amongst us
A gladiator on the floor
All hands on fallen friends

(Juggernaut)

As I lay here, I'm staring up at you
Blood across my face, all my fears are coming true
Now, all these hands are reaching out at me
Pulling me back up, because these friends will never leave
Track Name: Norse Code
*They are raiders of our loved ones, fallen down
They are raiders of our loved ones, fallen down*

I can see them from afar
Axe raised overhead
And the first thing on my mind
How many lives I'll end

*God forgive us*

Let's burn this city down tonight, let's dye the sky red
With the blood of the first line of defense that they send
You thought you stood a chance, you should have known all along
You never thought this day would come, but you were wrong

Now the battle's raging
And I don't see how
There's any way to escape
You're surrounded now

You can run, you can hide
But it won't *save your life*
We're gonna burn this place down
Burn it to the ground

Let's burn this city down tonight, let's dye the sky red
With the blood of the first line of defense that they send
You thought you stood a chance, you should have known all along
You never thought this day would come, but you were wrong


Rally and burn everything down, let's end this
Rally and burn everything down, let's end this

We've trekked too far to give up now
Let's end this here
Let's end this now

Let's end this
Once stood tall and proud
This city is a grave yard *NOW*

*We are raiders of their loved ones, fallen down
We are raiders of their loved ones, fallen down*
Track Name: Just South of Boston
This is my failing love machine
Failing now, can't go the distance
Somewhere between the past and the present
And all the moments that lie all in between

It's churning and burning inside
When I do close my eyes
All I see is
My home with the memories inside
Though I try and I try
I just can't seem to
*Forget*
Forget about, blue skies
In my, town

Persistent beats keep slowing me down
Holding me down
Last chances are all over now
Why can't I just decide now
Once and for all, now

If home is where the heart is
Am I heartless? Who knows where my heart is?
How can I be expected to stand
When I don't even know if there's ground left to stand on?
And how Tall can one stand
Before one's head gets stuck in the rafters?
And how long can one wait
Before this all gets old again?

Hesitant is all I'm feeling
It's tough to say
But choices take decisions to make
And I don't believe that we give a fuck
What we really want

What do we want?
What do we...
Track Name: No... Yes!
You pulled the pin from my heart
I'll put a bullet through your head
Now we lie in an unconscious state
Waiting for the end

I never realized your latent ability
To keep me restless, keep me from sleep
Now I rise with the moon, as the sea eats the sun again
And as the sky turns black I pray for quiescence

Pull the pin from my heart
Now the question is
Can I, Will I, Should I save myself again?
I've pulled the pin from my heart
Now watch me explode
Can I, Will I, Should I save myself again?

Should I save myself again?
*Save myself again!*

So now I lie here awake, heart racing
Uncontrollable pace, false pretentions
And shattered dreams, I'm lying here waiting
But I can't find time to sleep

When this began, I knew I might get hurt
But this lack of dormancy is driving me berserk
You lead your life destructively
And I lived for your cheap thrills
But at the end of the day, dependency kills

Pull the pin from my heart
Now the question is
Can I, Will I, Should I save myself again?
I've pulled the pin from my heart
Now watch me explode
Can I, Will I, Should I save myself again?

*Save myself!
Save myself again!*

Should I save these people?
Should I save my friends?
Should I save them from myself
Saving myself once again?
Track Name: This Situation is Getting Hairy
I feel like everyone's chasing me
Or is just everyone following you
I can see it in your eyes tonight
*You're changing, you're changing*

The full moon is rising
*And you're changing, you're changing*

The full moon is rising
*And you're changing, you're changing*

So this is what we are left with
The aftermath of this wreckage
This bloodlust leaves me breathless
I'm the walking dead, who knows where my heart is?

Who knows where my heart is?

So go ahead and sink your teeth in
I'm gonna show you how to live
You're a creature like all your friends
You never change for me, you only change for them

You've been changing, you're still changing

I have a silver bullet
With your name written on it
I'll put it between your fucking eyes

You're a creature
You fucking beast, I won't let you change me
I'll fight the monster off, unlike your fucking friends
*We're better than you
We're better than all your mother-fucking friends*

Embrace the moon with what's inside
You've never looked as beautiful as you are tonight
The blood-soaked ground, your blood-red eyes
The dead won't be lonely tonight
Track Name: Scully Was a Naysayer
All I know is this
All I know is, I'm pouring my heart out here
And everything I do
Is never good enough, for you

It's been too long since I've seen your face
We stood so strong in this place
I had faith, I never thought you'd go
I'm searching, and I thought that you should know

I'm searching up and down these empty halls
I'm looking for a message on these walls
I'm hoping maybe someday you'll believe
I'm wishing you could find the truth in me

You're such a fucking naysayer
Everything I create
I'd like to see you make something better
Just sit in your tower

All I know is this
All I know is, I'm pouring my heart out here
And everything I do
Is never good enough, for you

It's been too long since I've seen your face
We stood so strong in this place
I had faith, I never thought you'd go
I'm searching, and I thought that you should know

I'm searching up and down these empty halls
I'm looking for a message on these walls
I'm hoping maybe someday you'll believe
I'm wishing you could find the truth in me

*The truth is out there!*

You never believed in me
You never believed in us
But all I know is we're here
And we're here to stay
