Track Name: Always The Last To Know
ALWAYS THE LAST TO KNOW

You gave me a fever before the war was over
I tried not to deceive you, such a regimented soldier
Oh my heart, my heart my heart my heart
Always gets the best of me

But time was a bandit and silence was his ally
Oh heck I couldn’t stand it, so I became the bad guy
Oh my heart, my heart my heart my heart
Always gets the best of me

Oh just let it beat
Beat the same old rhythm
Beat to the same old rhyme
Oh I’m always the last to know
Got a mind of it’s own
Fought this war all alone
I’m always the last to know

And now the battle’s over the wind moves like your slave
Wounds have healed and disappeared but I’ll take mine to the grave
Oh my heart, my heart my heart my heart
Always gets the best of me

Oh just let it beat
Beat the same old rhythm
Beat to the same old rhyme
Oh I’m always the last to know
Got a mind of it’s own
Fought this war all alone
I’m always the last to know
Beat the same old time so I can count to four
And catch my breath before I hit the floor
If you’ve been blown apart just please arrest my heart
Oh I’m always the last to know

(middle tribal section...the war!!!)

Oh my heart, my heart my heart my heart

Oh just let it beat
beat the same old rhythm
Beat to the same old rhyme
Oh I’m always the last to know
Got a mind of it’s own
Fought this war all alone
I’m always the last to know
Beat the same old time so I can count to four
And catch my breath before I hit the floor
If you’ve been blown apart just please arrest my heart
Oh I’m always the last to know
If you’ve been blown apart just please arrest my heart
Oh I’m always the last to know
Track Name: Bark Like An Animal
Bark Like An Animal

Your hand reached for mine
Through the smoke, through the smoke of your cigarette
Drawn by your lack of smile
I was choked, I was choked by your gas jet

It’s unforgettable when you bark like an animal
It’s unregrettable when you bark like an animal with me

You whispered in my ear
“Let’s get out, let’s get out of here”
I paint you in my mind
With the ash, with the ash of my burning fear

It’s unforgettable when you bark like an animal
It’s unregrettable when you bark like an animal with me

When you tilt your head back
And howl at the moon
You know I’ll come running
To you

It’s unforgettable when you bark like an animal
It’s unregrettable when you bark like an animal with me
It’s unforgettable when you bark like an animal
It’s unregrettable when you bark like an animal with me
Track Name: Bite Of My Broken Heart
Bite Of My Broken Heart

How can I shake off this fascination?
You feed nothing but my procrastination
Surrounded by everyone but no one is near me
If I dream out loud will somebody hear me?

I sneak into your bed but you’re already sleeping
I am an astronaut orbiting you
Float me the answers and fold them on your pillow
Whisper the secret to undo the sorrow

Can I offer you a bite of my broken heart?
Swallow it slowly with wine darling, that’s a start
Walk with me into the dark, my love I don’t mind
Can I offer you a bite of my broken heart, broken heart

Am I the only one in this confusion
Singing silent melodies oh tacit collusion
Come to me in my sleep and steal me from waking
For when I’m alone I feel this bitter Earth quaking

Can I offer you a bite of my broken heart?
Swallow is slowly with wine darling, that’s a start
Walk with me into the dark, my love I don’t mind
Can I offer you a bite of my broken heart, broken heart

In the questions you seek, is there already an answer?
When you reach the highest peak is it just as fun to throw yourself off,
You’re a snowball, rolling rolling rolling
And you can start all over
And you can start all over again

Can I offer you a bite of my broken heart?
Swallow is slowly with wine darling, that’s a start
Walk with me into the dark, my love I don’t mind
Can I offer you a bite of my broken heart, broken heart

Can I offer you a bite of my broken heart?
Swallow it slowly with wine darling, that’s a start
Walk with me into the dark, my love I don’t mind
Can I offer you a bite of my broken heart
broken heart
Broken heart broken heart
Track Name: I Am Fire
When do you think you’ll let me go, I say
When do you think you’ll let me go
When do you think you’ll let me go, I say
When do you think you’ll let me go

In the heat you wrap me up
in blankets until I become the smoke you breathe
You want fire? I’ll give you fire
Three elements battle while the water grieves

When do you think you’ll let me go, I say
When do you think you’ll let me go
When do you think you’ll let me go, I say
When do you think you’ll let me go

I am the fire I am the fire
I am the fire I am the fire
I am the fire I am the fire
I am the fire I am the fire

When do you think you’ll let me go, I say
When do you think you’ll let me go
When do you think you’ll let me go, I say
When do you think you’ll let me go

I’ll pick you an apple
I’ll pick you some fruit
Open up I’ll feed you
The Hungry Truth

I’ll pick you an apple
I’ll pick you some fruit
Open up I’ll feed you
The Hungry Truth
Track Name: The Hungry Truth (Will Feast On You)
The Hungry Truth (Will Feast On You)

He’s the burning under my skin
Melting, itching inside, out, in
Oh, Oh, Oh
Such a beast, he sleeps no more
Rises from a feverish slumber
Oh, Oh, Oh
It’s all a big misunderstanding

Save Me – from the hungry truth the hungry truth will feast on you
Brave be – oh the hungry truth the hungry truth will eat through you
Save Me – Oh the hungry truth the hungry truth will feast on you

He’s the demon under my bed
Midnight picnics wake the dead
Oh, Oh, Oh
Such a beast, he stands up tall
Rising from nowhere at all
Oh, Oh, Oh
It’s all a big misunderstanding

Save Me – from the hungry truth the hungry truth will feast on you
Brave be – oh the hungry truth the hungry truth will eat through you
Save Me – Oh the hungry truth the hungry truth will feast on you

At the burning of the sun
The exchange has just begun
At the rising of the moon
The hungry truth will be here soon

Save Me – from the hungry truth the hungry truth will feast on you
Brave be – oh the hungry truth the hungry truth will eat through you
Save Me – Oh the hungry truth the hungry truth will feast on you
Save Me – from the hungry truth the hungry truth will feast on you
Brave be – oh the hungry truth the hungry truth will eat through you
Save Me – Oh the hungry truth the hungry truth will feast on you
Track Name: Let Us Dance With Our Fear
Let Us Dance With Our Fear

Chattering monsters ring my ear
They salivate the sorrow of the years
I know you only mean well

When you feel frozen
I cannot steal the sun
You’re already golden
Awakening has begun
I will not fill your head
With all you want to hear
So if all those dreams seem dead
Let us dance with our fear
Let us dance with our fear

They squashed my heart until it bled
And turned it into soup and bread
I know you only mean well

When you feel frozen
I cannot steal the sun
You’re already golden
Awakening has begun
I will not fill your head
With all you want to hear
So if all those dreams seem dead
Let us dance with our fear
Let us dance with our fear

Can I have this waltz my darling
May I breathe in your deceit
May I swallow all your atoms
May I bath in this defeat
Can I take this waltz my darling
Can I eat your skin in bed
Shall I dance with all my shadows
Or should I lose my head

When you feel frozen
I cannot steal the sun
You’re already golden
Awakening has begun
I will not fill your head
With all you want to hear
So if all those dreams seem dead
Let us dance with our fear

When you feel frozen
I cannot steal the sun
You’re already golden
Awakening has begun
I will not fill your head
With all you want to hear

So if all those dreams seem dead
Let us dance with our fear
Let us dance with our fear
Let us dance with our fear
Let us dance with our fear
