Track Name: Ruins
In your darkest hour
You will find us now
On a dirt warpath above you
We saw your cities burn
And your children learned
There was nothing to return to
But a lifelong taste for blood

Ask us to rebuild
Dig a hole to fill
With memories of her below you
I remember still
Standing on a hill
Shoveling dirt upon our future
And they said never again

Need a plan, a higher plain
Then we said never again
Need a better fire plane
Take us to a higher flame

In ruins below, they will see
Burning apart of me
We'll do it alone, where we'll be
You'll want no part of this

Track Name: January
I come from the future
I know all your fates
Don't stop what you're doing
It's much too late
I know what you're thinking
I don't even know your name
Trust me when I tell you
We end up all the same

I've seen devastation
I know what it takes
To look you in the eye
Know our hearts will break
You have to survive
We will show you how to fight
When you're good and ready
Lead us to the light
Lead us out of the night

You see faces, I see ghosts
You see places, I see ruins
All the things you want most
I will say they're not worth doing

I lived through your future
I know when it came
You would never see them
To you it's all a game
Winter was our freedom
Then it snowed again
Gave me one good reason
To steer into the pain
Get this out of the brain

If January's a place we married
That won't change, we're so tired
January's a place we married
I won't change, we're so tired
If January's a place we married
I won't change your snow tires

You see faces, I see ghosts
You see places, never ending
All the things you love most
I will say they're all worth doing
If January's a place we married
I won't change your snow tires in July

Track Name: I Recognize
I want you to leave this world behind
I will help you find a way to fly

I recognize, recognize your eyes
Your eyes
I'll rectify, rectify your lies
Your lies, your lies

Before you shoot your lip off
We were better off alone
Before this final flip off
It was better not to own
Then you said we had a deal
It was only yours to steal, and now

I'll simplify, simplify your life
Your life
I'll liquefy, liquefy your mind
Your mind, you're mine

Before this final rip off
We were better left alone
Before you chew your leg off
It was better on the bone

I know where you lay your head
I know where it’ll go instead, now

Dear Alison, Alison you’re lying
You’re lying
If we’re innocent, innocent
You’ll fly, tonight

Track Name: Friend Is A Four Letter Word
To me, coming from you
Friend is a four letter word
End is the only part of the word
That I heard
Call me morbid or absurd
But to me, coming from you
Friend is a four letter word

To me, coming from you
Friend is a four letter word
End is the only part of the word
That I heard
Call me morbid or absurd
But to me, coming from you
Friend is a four letter word

When I go fishing for the words
I am wishing you would say to me
I'm really only praying
That the words you'll soon be saying
Might betray the way you feel about me

But to me, coming from you
Friend is a four letter word

Track Name: Curtains
You don’t want to know
What I think of you
All that you’ve become
What remains to do
When all that’s gone is true
I don’t want to show
What you meant to me
All that I have done
We have to let it be

It’s all drawn back
It’s curtains for you my friend
And all that you pretend
It all makes sense
You were with me til the end

Where we gonna go
A place that’s right for us
I think I found the one
Somewhere we can trust
To blow the world to dust
How we going to know
Well if it’s right for her
Drink up, man drink up
We’ll have to let it burn

It’s all drawn back
It’s curtains for you my friend
And all that you pretend
It all makes sense
This is finally the end

Track Name: Greenwitch
On the day you died, tomorrow
Flowers filled the sky
Dried up all our sorrow
But it’s hard to say goodbye, til I try
We knew each other very well

The way you tried to borrow
Lovers in disguise
Makes it hard to follow
And to look into your eyes, til I cry
We knew each other very well
You knew another better still

Greenwitch was her name until
You found another standard, will you see
What you chose to be is mean to me

Greenwitch was our future until
You ran into another, will she be
The last thing you see
