Track Name: Burning Alive
Well I’ve hurt myself but nevermind, the nicotine will cut the edge off slow.
So cool and slow.
And I’ve cut myself but nevermind, I’m getting lost at the sight of blood flow, and I’ve been lost before.
But you know I’ll make it back, feeling sore just like I done, a few times before.

It’s like being in pain and there’s this hunger, I can feel it way inside.
But I’m swearing off this, it’s the last one that I’ll know, and like that it’s gone.
But then you’ve always got time for just one more, body burning is a head that’s starting war.
Oh, I’ve been lost before.

But you know I’ll make it back, now I’m thinking I’m burning alive.
Oh, you know I’ll make it back, now I’m feeling like I’m burning alive.

Am I ever gonna leave here?
Ever gonna know the release?
I’d bury this shame but it’s like an addiction, and I’d bring it back.
Am I not, the only one I know?
I bring it back.
Am I not, the only one I know?
Then I take it back.
Oh, I’m not the only one I know…

That’s burning alive.

Track Name: Anything At All
In a voice that talked to my blood, you sing about leaving.
In a verse about staying out way too late, you’re waking up alone.
Oh, we hold on to all the things that are worth holding on to, and we don’t change anything at all.

I slowly go out of my head, while you question what you believe.
And in this state, how do I float with such little grace?
While you just want to live, then to drift to the sun.

Oh, we hold on to all the things that are worth holding on to, and we won’t change anything at all.
And we can run with our eyes closed shut, or we could be anyone, or anything at all.

You could do it all, do it all for nothing.
But in your blood you know you have a choice.
You could give it all, give it all for nothing.

Track Name: Fires
There’s someone setting fire to your house tonight, lucky you’re not at home.
And while you run around with your feet untied, where do you go?
There’s someone telling lies to your face tonight, someone’s filling minds ’til they’re filled just right, but you won’t loose sleep at night, no, oh. Whoa, oh.
We could set this right, but you don’t wanna.

It’s like you’ve opened up your eyes to things you never saw, this heart is beating strong after being torn. Can you say you’ve lived and died without ever being born? No, oh. Woah, oh.

You know I kept hearing these footsteps, they were getting louder up until just a couple of days ago. And up and down these fires, they burned.
And we could just forget about today just let it pass if you wanna, did you think that living like this could get that much harder, no?
All around these liars tell me it’s alright.
I could set this right, or I could keep on running.

It’s like I’ve opened up my eyes to things I never saw, this heart is beating stronger than I’ve ever known. Can you say you survived the fire without ever being burned? No, oh. Whoa oh, oh.

Track Name: These Wings
Summer is coming up dead, and by the winter we’ll forget.
And all those lousy dopes out on Main Street, have rehearsed and are acting out.
We know more than to care.
We were out of place here anyway.
Now I’m better than I’ve ever felt, it’s like these hands around my throat just let go.
And I’m stronger than I ever was before.
Like I’ve got these wings, and I got you, and you know…

It feels like days since I had my last cigarette and every drink that I get tastes as bitter as regret.
Am I drying out?
Sometimes goodbye my friend is all that can be said.
You knew my shadow well.
This skin was getting old, anyway.

Now I’m better than I’ve ever felt, it’s like these hands around my throat just let go.
And I’m stonger than I ever was before.
Like I’ve got these wings and I’ve got you.
And you know we’re alright.

Track Name: Shining Through
I’d made my way towards some place to hide, somewhere amongst the sky of some wretched night whoa, oh.
To be so high, then come crashing low.
I’ve asked what is normal and what is right, to want to live as someone that I’ve tried so hard to fight whoa. oh.
These thoughts I’d had and tried to bury, oh.

This is the rest of my light shining through.
Just the rest of my light shining through.

There’s a knock at the door that you never hear, identified by all the parts that were never clear, whoa, oh.
But I tell you what, that was long ago.
And in the background I was just a dull sound, a cover up for all the things they’d just see as queer, whoa, oh.

I’ll tell you what, I’ve let it go.

This is the rest of my light shining through.
Just the rest of my light shining through.

While the rain falls hard, getting sick of trying to forget.
Getting sick of thinking how I’d look in that, and if I’d walk would you believe me if I could?
And when it all build up in a little while, you feel what’s right, like desire come to life.
