Track Name: She
She's on her way back home
She's on her way back home

She has a million scars,
She won't take you far
Deep into her heart, you'll stay
On the surface of what we see

She knows you more than me
She loves you more than he

I'm not so happy now
'Cause she's far away for now
So please come back to me, you'll see
That I was alone like thee

(I won't make you cry tonight.)

We never kissed at all, so was it all my fault?
We never kissed at all, so was it all my fault?
We never kissed at all, so was it all my fault?
We never kissed at all, but maybe we should have after all.
Track Name: How Is Your Heart?
During my worst times on the park benches
In the jails, or living with whores.

I've always had this certain contentment
I wouldn't call it happiness,
It was more of an inner balance
That settled for whatever was occurring at the time.

And it helped in the factories
And when relationships went wrong with the girl
It helped through the war and the hangovers
The backalley fights and the hospitals.

And to awaken in a cheap room in a strange city
And to pull up the shade, pull up the shade.

And to walk across the floor to an old dresser with a cracked mirror
And see myself for ugly, see myself grinning at it all.

What matters most is how well you walk through the fire.
What matters most is how well we walk through the flames.
Track Name: Nathaniel
Bring the devil to my eyes,
Feed me lust and knotted ties.
Your voice, it carries so much strain
With hate and love, I've seen your pain.
Track Name: The Weight
(Don't you look me in the eyes)
'Cause this is not the time
To say all of our goodbyes.

Don't you even say a word
'Cause anything you say will hurt.
I just want to be alone
And figure this out on my own

But you stopped to stare-- what do you want?
You stopped to stare-- what did you want from me?

I don't want to close my eyes
And feel these feelings of despise.
With you there isn't that much sound
And I don't want to wait around.

But you stopped to stare-- what do you want?
You stopped to stare-- what did you want from me?

And I don't want to wait around here
But I am so inclined to tell you how I feel
And how painful this is to know that I am not what you want

And I am so inclined to tell you
That I miss everything about you
And I am so inclined to tell you
That I miss all those things about you

You stopped to stare-- so what did you want from me?
Track Name: Deceive The Lion
If you want to take me home, why don't you take me home now?
If you want to make me whole, why can't you make me whole now?

We just wanted to know why you kept your secrets buried under lies.
We just wanted to hold you within our skin for just a minute.
And I lied, I didn't miss you when you died.

I just carried on and I sung my songs.
I just carried on and I sang my songs.

If I love you like I know, why can't I love you like "you" now?
If you think I'm strong, why did I ever let you down?
If you think I know what I ever talk about, do you really know me?
I'm just looking for an ode.

I'm just looking for an ode, I was so harsh on you.
When you left I told everyone I was used.
It didn't take that long until I saw what was true.

And then you took me home. Take me home, you took me home.
I lost you in the cold, to the cold. The winter's fighting you.
The dreams I had, I sold to an old lion dressed as you,
and then he took me home.
I'll just pretend it's you.
Track Name: Wolf/The Drummer
Don't press your lips upon his neck.
You can taste love with just a breath.
I miss the drummer who lives in sin.
I miss the drummer who was my friend.

He was the king of my ocean dream.
I was his listener as he spoke to me
'Cause he was my friend.

Just don't forget the things I said,
The lives we lived, the nights we spent
Under the moon, we spoke the truth
But no one would listen to me or you.

I won't forget the things you said,
Your promises, the day I left.

I was your brother, I felt so free.
The language that we spoke is haunting me.

I watched you crumble the lives of broken men
Who stand upon you, who stand upon your hands.
Track Name: Autumn's Child
Autumn's chld
Raise your head
Autumn's child
Sweet young thing

Stay dead horse
Stand dead horse
Run river run
Sun shine sun

Sing child sing
Sing your songs
Sing your songs

Autumn's child
Come raise your head
Autumn's child
You sweet young thing
Track Name: Pathologia
If you want to follow me, I'm sure there's ways that we could go.
If you want to follow me, I'm sure there's ways that we could go.

If you want to follow me, make sure that you aren't so cold.
If you want to follow me, make sure you aren't so cold.

I tried so hard to forget the pain I felt from the eyes I hurt so badly.
When I cried, you were mad.
We died and I would lose my sight.
I remember when we said we would hate September
But I lost my life in November
When you said I would die in December
But I'm still alive.

And I would sing to my mother as she talked about my father.
He lost his sight, he cannot remember
That my own birthday's not in September.
And I lost all my friends, I died.
It sent me to the fire, I'm alive.
It took me years to finally understand
Why I'm so lonely, but I'm a man.

I lost my life in November
When you took me into September rain.
It falls, it falls so hard,
I remember when we were in love.

I would stick my hands into your pockets.
When we died, you said we allowed it.
But did we allow it?
Now I see what I couldn't see before.

I lost my mind in September.
Where were you?
You took me to hell.
I look inside and all I see are lies.

Nothing but lies, nothing but lies.

Take me to my mother, tell her I'm sorry.
Tell her about my father.
I would tell you stories-- nothing but lies,
My stories were nothing but lies.
Track Name: Things We Lost in the Fire demo (2011)
We learned how to lie by watching Mom and Dad everyday in the kitchen, telling stories that were fiction.
We learned how to lie by watching Mom and Dad have their way.
My mother cried, she'd never say where my father went today.

I saw a Mother and a Father on the television screen.
Why were they so happy? And why were you so mean?
I just want to know the truth, I just want to know your ways
And why you could only tell me lies straight into my face?

There's so much stuff that we will lose within the fire, in the dark.
Tell me all your secrets... where'd you get those scars?
All of the memories I keep of Mother/Father kisisng me,
They were only stories they would tell me.

I know you really didn't love him. I know you didn't love him.
So when'd you start letting go?

I know you really didn't love him. I know you didn't love him.
So when'd you start letting go?
'Cause I feel the fire letting go.
'Cause I feel the fire burning slow.
So let's watch the fire...
