Track Name: Sound the Alarm
That’s how the silence ends
With a bang, not a whimper
I thrive in discontent
Come alive in the wintertime
It’s cold in the trenches
Wish I could linger, but
Can’t stay on the benches
Sit out this life of mine

Can’t talk to terrorists
Some fears can’t be dismissed
Some thoughts can’t coexist
So sound the alarm
Prepare for war
March seven times
Around these walls
This is your therapy, crisis is clarity
Let your defenses freeze, crumble to the ground
Play back your movie reels of faded memories
You’ll never be at peace unless you sound the alarm

We’ll come together here
Make love to all our fears
Fist fight Gods and ideals
With backs against the wall,
And we’ll be drinking it
Until we sink in it
Singing out our symphonies
Outlive the curtain call

Can’t talk to terrorists
Some fears can’t be dismissed
Some thoughts can’t coexist
So sound the alarm
Prepare for war
March seven times
Around these walls
This is your therapy, crisis is clarity
Let your defenses freeze, crumble to the ground
Play back your movie reels of faded memories
You’ll never be at peace unless you sound the alarm
Track Name: Breach
Valentine, how bad do you want to prolong the fight?
Gnaw at the bone of contention we found
Crave it like blood thirsty hounds?
Valentine, you go for the jugular every time
And I shake it off like I don’t even care
Pretend that I’m not really there
I’m chasing the tear,

Now I’m reaching, reaching, breaching the peace
Yes I’m reaching, reaching, breaching the peace that we keep
We pray for what we can’t believe
And I’m breaking down,
I’m reaching, reaching, BREACHing the peace
Yes I’m reaching, reaching, BREACHing the peace that we keep
We fake it but we can’t believe
And all I can do is BREACH

There was a time
When joy was abundant and justified
We stole all the happiness in the world
Treasures we never deserved
Well valentine, I’m carrying boulders I try to hide
I have to set fire to my crucifix
The bridges we failed to fix
I’m all out of tricks, and

I’m reaching, reaching, breaching the peace
Yes I’m reaching, reaching, breaching the peace that we keep
We pray for what we can’t believe
And I’m breaking down,
I’m reaching, reaching, BREACHing the peace
Yes I’m reaching, reaching, BREACHing the peace that we keep
We fake it but we can’t believe
And all I can do is BREACH
I’m breaking down
I’m breaking down
I’m breaking down
And all I can do is BREACH
Track Name: Stardust
Look at the lights across the sky
Why would you even want to cry?
We’re nothing but stardust, we’re nothing but stardust

Your heart is pure
But dirt accumulates, it’s getting complicated
You sleep on floors
Running in safety mode, young never felt so old

You’re tripping over it
Ripping the frays and stitches
That your mother’s sown
You used to water it
Pulling out Baobab trees
Your weeds have overgrown
Look at the lights across the sky
Why would you even want to cry?
We’re nothing but stardust, we’re nothing but stardust
Sing to your weary bones
Tell them you’ll soon be going home
With nothing but stardust, we’re nothing but stardust

Your time is lost
Nothing to show for it, and there’s no cure for it
You’re breathing salt
Plenty of oxygen, but you won’t breathe it in

Long as your only rose
Stays in a plastic globe
You’re gonna feel alone
You used to water
Pulling out Baobab trees
The kids have all but grown
Look at the lights across the sky
Why would you even want to cry?
We’re nothing but stardust, we’re nothing but stardust
Sing to your weary bones
Tell them you’ll soon be going home
With nothing but stardust, we’re nothing but stardust
C'est le temps que tu
a perdu pour ta rose
qui fait ta rose
si importante
C'est le temps que tu
a perdu pour ta rose
qui fait ta rose
Ta rose

Sing to your weary bones
Tell them you’ll soon be going home
With nothing but stardust, with nothing but stardust,
we’re nothing but stardust
Track Name: I Won't Let Go
The shadows fight him in the night
And they drink away till the break of day
They walk behind him in the light
Every waking moment, every step he takes, yeah
He’ll never paint inside the lines
Cause he’d rather try trace out her silhouette
These are the best days of his life
Holding out for someone that he barely met

And still he cries for it
Everyday dies for it
Losing his mind for it
But he won’t let go

He’s singing whoa
No, I WON’T LET GO
Still singing no, no, no, I WON’T LET GO

She runs to chase away the fear
That she’ll always run from what she can’t admit
She feels the tension disappear
And when it all comes back she takes another hit, yeah
And she knows better than to pray
For a golden offer that she can’t refuse
Once you can always run away
There’s nothing left to die for, nothing left to lose

And still she cries for it
Everyday dies for it
Losing her mind for it
But she won’t let go

She’s singing whoa
No, I WON’T LET GO
Still singing no, no no

Until the end of the world
Until the end of the world
Whoa, no, WE WON’T LET GO
Still singing no, no, no, WE WON’T LET GO
Track Name: The Feel of Not to Feel It
I’ll make you a deal, right here by the crossroads
So if you agree, just give me a sign
Oh yes I believe you’ll take what I offer
Step into my circle now, I’m crossing every line

Take what you want from me
I didn’t need it anyway
So take what you want from me
I’m ready for the interchange
The feel of not to feel it
When there is none to heal it
It makes no sense to steel it now
And I don’t want to anymore

I need her so bad, can you make it happen?
But talk to me quickly now, the sun’s almost up
Let’s sign it in blood, yeah, iInitial the changes
What good is a soul without another soul to love?

Take what you want from me
I didn’t need it anyway
So take what you want from me
I’m ready for the interchange
The feel of not to feel it
When there is none to heal it
It makes no sense to steel it now
and I don’t want to anymore

So take it away, take it away, take it away -
I don’t want to anymore
So take it away, take it away, take it away -
I don’t want to anymore
So take it away, take it away, take it away
I don’t want to anymore
So take it away, take it away, take it away
Track Name: White as Bones
In the wake of winter blooms an early spring
Let the sunlight in for the bird to sing
In the frozen sky blows a tempered breeze
Promises of warmth to barren, snowcapped trees

Come to me at night
When I’m all alone
When my ink runs dry
And the pages white as bones

I’ve become again what I fear the most
Hope I don’t offend any sleeping ghost
Tiptoe by the moonlight, I track down what was lost
And look for firewood in the permafrost

Come to me at night
When I’m all alone
When my ink runs dry
And the pages white as bones

Give it in, give it up

In the dead of night
When I’m all alone
When my ink runs dry
And the pages white as bones
Come to me at night
When I’m all alone
When my ink runs dry
And the pages white as bones
Track Name: 150
The rusty weathered traffic light
Blinking in the dead of night
The green grass underneath the snow
The river in its frozen flow
The tree that stands bereft of leaves
Against the howling northern wind
And every bud that waits for spring
Shall sing for you
Shall sing for you

And the soul in everything shall sing for you

The Pharaoh in his golden tomb
The baby in the burning room
The stranded whale upon its death
With every heaving, dying breath
The disbelieving atheist
Who knows that you do not exist
He may deny the crucifix,
But sing for you

And the soul in everything shall sing for you

That’s how the silence ends
With a bang, not a whimper
I thrive in discontent
Come alive in the wintertime
To sing for you
