Track Name: Needles & Fire
I'm tired so i lay my head down on a pillow of needles and fire
and when i awake its to a rolling drum and a choir
singing songs that i learned when i was only a child
such as spring up a well in my soul

I tried couldn't ever find myself inspired
it wasn't too long ago i began to conspire
on how to get out of this town

well i wasn't too far behind when you said
don't even bother to come at all
I'll be there well before you arrive
I'm going to take everything you want

It's all right
looks like you've been running from a past life
especially when you said Anchorage looks real nice
but you didn't want to go all alone
Track Name: Better Off Alone
She found a place where she feels forgiven
for all of the shit that she's done
and in this place it's shit that she's given
so she don't feel forgiven for long
and through her smile she lies like a child
standing afraid of the dark
and now she's found a way around it all

I was on my way back home
you tried to get through
i thought you were better off alone
to do what you were going to do
Track Name: Back of Her Mind
sometimes her life is a disaster
even more the faster she goes
you can't win every battle baby
and sometimes its best just to stay away from the war
she's got all her guns loaded and in hand
she feels like she's been in the enemy's camp
she's going to hold her flag to the sky and hold her savior
in the back of her mind
Track Name: I Was the Wire
you were a friend i was a demon
you take medicine to help you sleep through the night
i was a waterfall you were the trees so tall
looking down on me what did you see
i was the wire you were the wildlife
devoured by fire discovered in the morning light
i was the cutting words you were the innocence
words that you've heard before but this time they make perfect sense

everyone was here but they left when you came
the father's in the kitchen blessing the saints in his name
the more that you listen the more you take the blame
the more that you look the more that you look the same

and he swears to you he's preaching only good news
but the more you pay attention the more you realize
it just isn't true
you hold onto him cause it feels like
you got nothing left to loose
you've made your decision
now you must follow through

I was the wire you were the wildlife
devoured by fire discovered in the morning light
Track Name: Crooked Guns
wouldn't you like to be somewhere you're understood
no one's forced to believe in anything but the greater good
around here love still abounds
there's no god or religion
there's no jesus in this town

it's only love
it's only love
it's only love
it's only love
it's only love
it's only love
it's only love
it's only love

you separate everything
you make a paper bag a wedding ring
it won't hurt when you take the blame
cause crooked guns are hard to aim


when will you run away with the sun
like you did when you came in the clouds with the rain
whispering names of the pawns in the games
that you love to play
what was it that you had to say
i must of been too far away
been educated
in your ignorant faith
Track Name: Christina's Song
She would probably breathe better if she lived more like you
she'd be cheating on death with impossible truth
she'd open a book up for all who refuse
don't rattle her cage she will shake in her boots
you swear to god your soul will transcend
well it don't help us now you come around fucking over your friends
it don't help us now no not at all
what we want is a means to an end

she gave away her common sense
there is no gate so she walks the fence
two faced is her self defense
now she's leaning hard on all her friends
whoa yeah
Track Name: Idiot Wind
talk about the weather more
these words are meaningless
cause they've all been said before
ignorance isn't always bliss
so we talk about the weather more
and how you're going to raise you kids
the things you've never done before
and the things that you can't forget
and the things that you can't forget
seem to be the things that you regret
and the things that you still regret
seem to be the things that make me get
high on the town
thigh on the town
my friends are coming down
get high on the town

i hope you get where you're headed
never have to turn around
i hope you reach up and touch the sun
and never have to come back down
but if you come back down
i hope that love will break your fall
and if you come back this way again
give me a call

you know who you are when you're gone
you know who you are when you're home
you know who you are when you're with somebody
you know who you are when you're all alone
all alone
all alone
oh
Track Name: Eyes
you looked at me through eyes
you spoke to me through mouth
you looked at me through eyes
but i did not know how
to respond without
looking through my eyes
and speaking through my mouth

you looked at me through eyes
you spoke to me through mouth
you showed me where I'm lacking
you told me where I'm slacking now
you looked at me through eyes
you spoke to me through mouth
you showed me where my heart was
you asked me where my heart is now

you looked at me through eyes
you spoke to me through mouth
you showed me where my heart was
you asked me where my heart is now
Track Name: My Prerogative
i would like to try something new for a while
darling its not a choice you have he said
holding a condescending smile

so they wrote their names in wet cement
to tell their youth to not forget
the things that their grandparents built
high on love and low on guilt
