Track Name: Moonlight Ritual
Out, of faith, my hope
With, my, gun

The difference
Your the god send, that picked me up again
The difference
We got a big past, still you brought me to the edge

Now, when, you broke it down like that
I guess I don’t have, don’t have no room, no respect
How can you leave when there’s some much to see?
Your Home, but ya got go

Held back my horse, Cooled off my jets
It is what it is, Got no time to react
I’m all motivation no hesitation
But I’m helpless in this tethered act

Bygones are freeing, but I can’t concede, to let you out with open arms
Just open the vault, that’s been emptied so long, and wander lost rituals

The difference
My good friend, You took me to the edge
The difference
Where’s the good friend, That picked me up again

Moonlight, Ritual
Moonlight, Ritual

Held back my horse and cooled off my jets
It is what it is, Got no time to react
I’m all motivation, No hesitation
But I’m helpless in this tethered act
Track Name: This is Goodbye
I won’t Fake it
No, I won’t make it
Take, it from me, Yeah take, Take it from me
Au Revoir Mon Ami, we never even needed to meet

pretty soon
pretty soon
I’m gonna stop, Stop meeting
pretty soon
pretty soon
I’m Gonna Stop, Stop faking
pretty soon
pretty soon
pretty soon
I’ll stop, thinking, making, meeting, or faking

Tell me how it is, I’ll make it your way
You tell me how it is, I’ll make it that way
Said, tell me how to make things, your way
Tell me how I make things, I slip into a daydream
I can’t, tell, but I think I hate things this way

- Chorus -

I Won’t Fake It, No, I Won’t Make It
Take, it from me, Yeah take, Take it from me,
pretty soon
pretty soon
pretty soon
I’ll stop, thinking, making, meeting, or faking
I won’t mean it, won’t make it, won’t squeeze it

Au Revoir Mon Ami, we never needed to meet
Au Revoir Mon Ami, we never needed to meet
Au Revoir Mon Ami, we never needed to meet
Track Name: The Longest March
I think today might be the day
Said I, I think today might be the day we come to it
Only for a moment, Only for the fortunate
Hostages, I’m captive in, shoes I’ve come to need
Hostages, I’m captive in, the longest march and no one’s here to lead

He didn’t know the lights had changed
And he didn’t know the world was dead
All along, what’s it for, and why do we care?

No he didn’t know his friends were gone
Time-trapped in the longest march
All alone, what’s it for, he didn’t know, he’d soon be gone

I’d say, I’d say today might be the day we bury it
I’d say today might be the day we try and bury it
Hostages, I’m captive in, shoes I’ve come to need
Hostages, I’m captive in, the longest march and no one wants to lead

All along, what’s it for, he didn’t know and he’d soon be gone
All alone, what’s it for, he didn’t know and he’d soon be gone

I think today might be the day
I think today might be the day
Track Name: Venom
How do I run, I run just run and stop
How do I run, I’m running and I run and stop
I cut my ties, my ties, yeah they never cut
I said I’m venom and venom don’t strike out
Trip’n in your boo's, your boo’s like my red meat

I wanna love you but I know I think you changed me
I wanna like you but I know I think you changed me
I wanna like you but I, I, I know I...

How do I choke, I choke like swamp mud
Said when I choke, yeah I’ll choke you like dry dust
How do I run, oh run you like a sled dog
Said when you choke, you’ll be cough’n on your lost lung
I know venom, and see it in your eyes
I love your trouble, and I need your surprise
I know none of the answers, and I cut all my ties

But I love your venom, said I need the venom
wanna hold your weapon, your weapon
I love your venom, wanna hold you tight

I cut my ties, I cut my ties
You're venom on venom, ya venom on venom, ya venom on

- musical break -

I cut my ties, I cut my ties
Your venom on venom ya venom on venom ya venom on
I cut my ties, I cut my ties
You're venom on venom, ya venom on venom, ya venom on

How do I run, I run just run and stop
How do I run, I’m running and I run and stop
I cut my ties, my ties, yeah they never cut
Said I’m venom and venom don’t strike out
Track Name: My Tambourine Hand
Live’n dead, walk’n in a trance
Ate somebodies arm, took a bullet in the head
Bitter sweet, fighting to be seen
When all the ground gives away, you only got your grip and a name

Velveteen grasp
My tambourine hand
Treats the wound
Gotta beat the beat
On my dead horse dance

Velveteen grasp
My tambourine hand
Treats the wound
Gotta beat the beat
On my dead horse dance

Please excuse, these killing blues
All the days I beat a dead horse
While i was betting on you
I don’t owe you anything
No, I don’t owe you anything
I don’t own the devils hands
But I'll swing it fast, said I'll swing it fast

Ahh, Ahh….

Velveteen grasp
My tambourine hand
Treats the wound
Gotta beat the beat
On my dead horse dance

Velveteen grasp
My tambourine hand
Treats the wound
Gotta beat the beat
On my dead horse dance
Track Name: Apocalyptic Kiss
All the dark days be fall’n
Seem to find a way in my back door
Dreams of you and me forever turn
kisses on the lips, i won’t forget

I need you more
Then I had ever known
I need you more
Then I had ever planned, now that it’s the end

All the dark days be fall’n
Seem to find a way in my back door
Dreams of you and me forever turn
Kisses on the lips, i...

Hail Hail, Drinking to the old life
No more then memories I hold tight
And now everything’s gonna move on

Can’t fight it when you're gonna leave right?
Nobody leaves with just a good by
We all believe in something as we go

I need you more
Then I had ever known
I need you more
Then I had ever planned, now that it’s the end
Track Name: I Want To Be King
I, want, to be, king of everything
Like Henry the Eighth, or Henry the Ford, Al Capone
Although, I think those years are gone

I won’t fade, No I won’t fade

I, needed a coach, for so long
Shit, damn, well I want it all
I don’t want no referee
There’s fire in my eyes for your revelry
For all the wrong reasons
Would I live for justice, or would I make treason's
If I were in charge, I’d smoother your heart

I won’t fade, I won’t fade

And that’s when she said I’d never be king
You’re gonna grow old baby just like me
I wanna be king, immortality waits
My deadpan smile in the shackles of fate

And that’s when she said I’d never be king
You’re gonna grow old baby just like me
I wanna be king, immortality waits
My deadpan smile in the shackles of fate won’t fade

Maybe I was wrong to say, those things ya know I meant
But it’s okay, you know I’ll, no it'll never be
I won’t fade, I will be

I won’t fade, I won’t Fade

And that’s when she said I’d never be king
You’re gonna grow old baby just like me
I wanna be king, immortality waits
My deadpan smile in the shackles of fate

And that’s when she said I’d never be king
You’re gonna grow old baby just like me
I wanna be king, immortality waits
My deadpan smile in the shackles of fate won’t fade
Track Name: Crater In The Heartland
I new it when, I saw you twitch, ya left a mark
I new it in the blink of an eye
I want to forget all about it
My own devil in partnership
It’s democracy, it’s subtlety, it’s the greatest crater of shit

I don’t get it at all
I cater to your every demand
Your crater is the heartland

Your tendency, to shout and scream, has left you alone
Your legacy, has a killing streak, i can’t let go
I want to forget all about this

I don’t get it at all
I cater to your every demand
Your crater is my heartland

Even once, even once your crater erupts
Never again, no never again will I give up
Even once, even once your crater is dust
And My Heart Erupts
And My Heart Erupts

Yeah, I will get up
No matter how hot the dust
Oh, I will not cry
When that volcano erupts
Yeah, I will get up
Even once the crater erupts
I will not cry
When my heartland is dust
Even If, Even If My heart is cut
And volcano's erupt
And volcano's erupt
Track Name: Born This Way
Live wire, in a smoking barrel and
Here it comes, here it comes
And you’re still smoking, and you’re still a loaded gun
Two can play in sandbox, it’s a land mine of a dog pile, under your thumb

Decide, Yeah I need this more
Then I, Then I need your vote

Whisper, Whisper oh in your ear
Lock a, Lock, Tock Tick and you can’t escape
You can’t live like - the joke I need I gotta
You won’t Live - In a joke I…

Everyone’s, Angry, No one understands
You were born this way, You Were born this way

No, ya ain’t, Your easy come, but your harder to go
Decide, Decide, to tame, this, this animal, instinct
Give me-your-vote, don’t choke, don’t be a jerk

Whisper, Whisper oh in your ear
Lock a, Lock, Tock Tick and I can’t escape
Like I, was a baby and I volunteered, was I, a volunteer on a ballet that was commandeered
No-I can’t understand
Am I joke? Well here, here I am

Everyone’s, Angry, No one understands
You were born this way, You Were born this way
Your Dramas here, Delivering a wreck
You were born this way, You Were born this way
Oh, You Can’t Escape

- - - -

Everyone’s, Angry, No one understands
You were born this way, You Were born this way
Oh, You Can’t Escape

Whisper, Whisper oh in your ear
Lock a Lock Tick, don’t mess with me
I Gotta
I Can’t Live with this joke I lead, I gotta
I Won’t live with the joke I
Help me, Help me, I can’t escape
Oh, Help me, Help me, Help Me, no get out of my way
Track Name: Revenge
Got a gift, never could have guessed, revenge
Got a gift, wrapped up so well, nothing but the best

Everything in the world
Everything in the world
Revenge, revenge, a game for girls and men
Everything in the world
Everything in the world
Revenge, Revenge, Revenge

Tell me why, Tell me why, Tell me why, Tell me (4x)

I’ve been here before, no it’s nothing new
I can’t believe this world and what it’s coming too
I’ve been here before, no it’s nothing new
I can’t believe this world and what we're coming too

It takes two, but only one to believe you
You take mine, and I don’t care
Oh, it’s pretend, everything in the world a scam
You pretend, everything in the world ain’t a scam

Everything in the world
Everything in the world
Revenge, Revenge, Revenge
Tell me why, Tell me why, Tell me why, Tell me (4x)

Tell me why, Tell me why
Revenge, Revenge
Tell me why, Tell me, Tell me why
Revenge, Revenge
Revenge, Revenge
Revenge, Revenge
Track Name: The Dare
How strange it is, to be anything, anything at all
Birthday trick, it’s magic to a kid, to be anyone
Shoot an arrow straight into the air the dares not to run,
Run boy run, through an unknown field however strange it is
How strange it is
How ever strange it is
Now I’m old enough, to know the difference in, a leap and a dare
Wishing that I was, still someone that I lost, I’m digging in deep

How strange it is
How ever strange it is

I dare you to run
I dare you to run
How deep do i need to dig
I dare you to run
I dare you to run
How deep do i need to dig

I dare you to run
I dare you to run
How deep do i need to dig
Shoot an arrow, straight into the air, the dares not to run
Run Boy Run, through an unknown field, however strange it is
Track Name: We Grow Up
Plant the trees for my pine box
Harvest them when I cash in
A nice place for my body to rest
Lying until you meet me there

Oh Oh Oh, we’ll grow up sometime
Oh Oh Oh, it’s alright, it’s alright
Oh Oh Oh, we’ll grow up sometime
Oh Oh Oh, we’re alright, we’re alright

I’ll plant the tree for your pine box
Harvest them when you cash in
When the clock rings twelve and I pay my debt
And I’m questioning if I’ve lived up to you
My lofty goals, I’ve left un-kept
With no more fight, and no regrets, you’re the only goal I’ll ever miss

Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh
Oh Oh Oh, we’ll grow up sometime
Oh Oh Oh, it’s alright, it’s alright
Oh Oh Oh, we’ll grow up sometime
Oh Oh Oh, we’re alright, we’re alright

anything goes, and everything's alright

I won’t run away
I won’t run away
I won’t run away
