Track Name: Blue Blood
psychedelic soul with a golden gun
you don’t need control like the other ones
fireflies in your mouth
it’s about time that you let em out

this red sunrise burns in your cold blood
open wounds mix em in with the new mud
sweet velocity, when you get there don’t forget about me
all my tears, all my fears, i trade them for the liberated years

I see the lonely sons, i ain’t gonna be one (now i know it 3x)
I can’t hear your lies anymore when i close my eyes (oh oh oh)

blue blue blood, i won’t do what you told me
this daylight’s burning from the fire that you sold me
i’ve crushed the stars in the sky
it’s a miracle if i make it out of here alive

red, red wave you surge and you crush me
you silence and hush me, you burn me with your fear
i’m alive, i’m alive when i’m standing here

broken records on the kitchen floor,
tell eddie i’m not afraid any more
Track Name: Confession
time to come clean
i'm a war machine
there's a light and a dark and i'm stuck between

i've got your blood on my shoes,
got bomb maker blues
i see trouble and i can't refuse

i've giving up on giving up
or getting out or getting right

sick of the old, no one to hold, all i really want is your...

love, you're a light to shine, you're a pearl to find
you're my silver and gold
love, take a hold of me, take control of me,
i want a golden soul

(love, take a hold of me, take control of me,
i want a golden soul)

oh i'm hell bent
so i'm hell sent
does it matter the crime
when you know the intent

oh, i can't delay it
can't incapacitate it
can i use you to rehabilitate it

i'm through with giving up
or getting out or getting right
Track Name: Waves
i been fighting for days
you hit me like a wall, you hold me without chains
stuck here where i don’t belong
you never get weak, and i never get strong

and i’m living in fear
eh eh, cause you’re holding here

i’m on the edge, i’m on the ledge
i’m on verge of something here
i’m breaking through
i’m overdue
and then there’s you

you’re the faceless ones,
yeah you don’t give a damn
but i’ll make ya listen...

over the horizon somewhere out in the sea
i can see my sunset’s waiting for me
but i’m broken on the rocks every time i face
the waves that won’t ever let me leave this place

you hit me like a stone
you hit me like a stone
you hit me like a, you hit me

i’m gonna take control
i’m gonna take control
i try to tell you but you never believe me

you ain’t keeping me here
eh eh, cause i ain’t what i appear
Track Name: Adeline
she’s a car crash, she’s a flood
running through the streets now, and in my blood
and every little beat of my heart

we all wear our years, but you wear em well
from the look in your eyes, it ain’t hard to tell
that baby you ain’t falling apart

and, i’m falling for you
and every little beat of your heart

adeline, i can feel your pulse, i can feel you move the 
air tonight.  come and whisper softly, whisper to me
“say you wanna stay, you wanna stay, don’t leave you me alone”
adeline, you’re every little beat of my heart

fire in your hands, and touch of gold
eternity burning in your soul
and now you’re burning in me

well you ain’t as young as you used to be
but you’re wild and pure, you’re loud and free with every little beat of your heart

they tried to hold you, they tried to trick me, i tried to tell you, no matter baby
the miles can’t keep us apart

i’m coming for you
with every little beat of my heart

fire in your hands, and touch of gold
eternity burning in your soul
and now it’s in me
Track Name: 10,000 Miles
i’m about to lose control
i’m desperate for you honey,
it’s the one thing that i need ya to know

all those other boys they don’t love you like i can
they ain’t the man that you know i am

10,000 miles down a desert road
miles behind me, miles to go
til i get to you honey, but i’m coming for your love

half of my life spent chasing you
got half my life left knowing what to do
when i to get to you honey, i’m coming for you love

deep in your heart you’ll find
a piece you baby’s be reaching for me all this time

i want you so bad now, more than you could ever believe
you keep looking for love but you know it’s me
keep looking for love but you know it’s me

and i ain’t gonna let you go
and i ain’t gonna take it slow
when i get to you honey, when i get to you honey
Track Name: Taken
it’s in her eyes, i’m in control
it’s in the dark, she’s in my soul

i am taking her for my own
i am taking her for mine
i am taking her for my own

ivory blouse hanging loose
ivory skin young and smooth

the way her hair falls in in her face, the way her eyes say “brush it away”
i’m black and blue, i’m black and blue
and she’s so new, and she’s so new
Track Name: Victimology
victimology

i’ll be waiting til my day is done
i’ll be waiting til the kingdom come
you got a hold on me, you got a hold on me

in the night i hear you call my name
i’m the moth, and baby you're the flame
you got a hold on me, you got a hold on me

i follow you into the setting sun
still i know damn well no good will come
of this hold on me, you got a hold on me

let me out i’m through
I ain't sinking baby,
I'm drowning here holding to you

hold me love, i don’t wanna be a victim now
Track Name: Much Too Much
Cheating little heart I found you out,
You're gonna breathe your last when I get a hold of
You keep saying without a doubt, "I only have eyes for..."

You ain't sitting at home alone
Been busy breaking hearts and I'm just another one
You love like a hurricane and I can't hold on

Oh there you go, my heart in hand, you've got me by the throat
You beg me nice to stay, but hell is on it's way

slow down honey, you’re low down honey
gonna pay for the things that you stole
looking for a sucker, and i was one to suffer
you left me in the gutter stealing,
too much, too much, much too much, much of my soul

Breaking like the light of day
I'm off and I don't wanna hear another
Lie That You're gonna say
"baby You know the..."

Truth about the games you play
Heartless since the day I met
You left me in disarray, and I can't hold on

Oh there you go, my heart in hand, you've got me by the throat
You beg me nice to stay, but hell is on it's way

Too much of soul...
Too much, too much of my...

Slow down honey, you're low down honey
Looking for a sucker... And I was one to suffer for you
Track Name: Prince
i’ve been waiting for a wave to carry me
i’ve been waiting for a thousand years.
there’s a whisper in the air that finds me
there’s a focus without the fear

and you talk to me
and you tell me things
that i never heard before
are you what i’m waiting for?

here i come baby... i’m not waiting

i’m not waiting for another sunrise
i’m the army coming over the wall
i’m the drums you hear beating outside the gates
i’m the footsteps starting to fall

gonna make ya see
gonna do some things
that you’ve never seen before
am i what you’re waiting for?

here i come baby... i’m not waiting

the flames are moving inside my blood
the darkness trembles just as it should

the spark once silently still and small
fanned to flame, now consuming all

here i come baby... i’m not waiting
Track Name: Lucky To Lose
been asleep too long, now i'm wide awake
to the brutal truth that baby you’re a fake

i need you to hold on honey, i need you to hold on honey
i need you to hold on honey, while i bleed my belly dry

one thing's sure, and two are coming true
the sun is shining and i'm better without you
you're done fooling, and i'm done playing the fool
i count myself - lucky to be losing you

you work so damn hard at hurting me
so i want you to think of this as victory

i want you to hold on honey, i want you to hold on honey
i want you to hold on honey, while i give the devil her due
Track Name: Heaven
Never fear, everyone is here
My brown eyed friend is resting at my feet

And You were right. I belong here with you
Your eyes have never looked so blue
And the sun lights the face of my smiling father

Shadows dance,
sunlight bends across the branches
And you, you're finally at peace,
the way I prayed that you'd always be

You belong here with me
At home here in my embrace
And the sun lights the face of my smiling father
Track Name: Monsters
Monsters sleeping, be careful not to wake
Getting eaten is no way to start the day

All my life they told me not to hide
But now I have good reason, and it waits for me outside

Sunshine on our face, tell me how good does it feel
The cold in my lungs, the ache in my chest, the fear in your eyes, the sound of it’s breath
We’re searching for home, it’s searching for a meal

Sky moving blue to black
Swallowing up the sun
When the monsters come
