Track Name: Faceless
We’ve got all our friends lined up for it

It’s a hit hit hit so hit me.

We can see them all standing looking slick
Perfect fit fit fit don’t fit me.

You say that they’ve got not hope for the show
High horse get high, on the wings because we can fly.

We, we could be faceless

Live in our dreaming state
Where life can wait

Look at all of them pretty broken things

So fix fix fix, fix me. 

But I see through all those broken lenses 

And it’s sick sick sick sick, sickening. 



You say that they’ve got all that big lot


Big folks they know, but now they’re buried down below.

We, we could be faceless

Live in our dreaming state 

Where life can wait

Hey!
Look at it burn, look at it burn baby,

Look at it burn, look at it burn baby
It’s coming in the streets and the cities
And the places that they meet
fall to your feet.

We, we could be faceless

Live in our dreaming state
Where life can wait
Track Name: Feel It
I’ve got a man in my dreams

Made a house out of bricks in my head

With my thoughts 

Where he can sleep. 



And I wanted to scream
Sing so loud you can hear my infection
Hear the sickness in me. 



You stop ask what’s the use

Your fingers are on the neck of the noose 

Because the city you consume 

Will soon consume you 

Your love is left unused you put aside
To better truths 

Because the city you consume 

Will soon consume you 

Just feel it

I’ve got these scars on my heart

Show me where I’ve been
And who has torn me apart

I knew from the start 

Saw it in the kids in the streets

And the people in the boulevards

You stop ask what’s the use

Your fingers are on the neck of the noose
Because the city you consume 

Will soon consume you 

Your love is left unused you put aside
To better truths 

Because the city you consume 

Will soon consume you 

Just feel it



You say these dying days are dead

But I’m still living them inside of my head
So
feel it, just feel it.

You say these loving days are dead

But I’m still living them inside of my head

So feel it, Just feel it.


Just feel it.
Track Name: Comes and Goes
I see it all I see it grow

It comes and goes, it comes and 

I feel earth slipping from my toes

It comes and goes, it comes and

We wait on things that no one knows

It comes and goes, it comes and

I’ll show you dreams I never chose
It comes and goes, it comes and 



Two bodies shaking in the cold
It comes and goes, it comes and

They hide their screams so no one knows

That it comes and goes, it comes and

The heat it grows until it’s out of control 

It comes and goes, it comes and 

A quiet place left there to hold 

It comes and goes, it comes and



We talk we touch but we don’t feel

But I’m feeling you and you're feeling me

Hold it down no love left to steal

But I’m seeing you and you're healing me. 



The smoke it grows so no one knows

That it comes and goes, it comes and

The clothes they lay there on the floor 

It comes and goes, it comes and

These things are all so pre-proposed 

It comes and goes, it comes and

The things we have erase our home

It comes and goes, it comes and 



We talk we touch but we don’t feel

But I’m feeling you and you're feeling me

Hold it down no love left to steal

But I’m seeing you and you're healing me.

They came here so long ago

They don’t know the blood they owe 

They came here to free their ghosts 

Free their ghosts, free their ghosts. 



We talk we touch but we don’t feel

But I’m feeling you and you're feeling me

Hold it down no love left to steal
But I’m seeing you and you're healing me.
Track Name: The Ballad of My Bones
I fell asleep with the lights on babe

I heard my heart beat slow

I was afraid to let my dreams out

For fear they’d never grow

Magic marker washable heartache

Is all I seem to know.

So drink my tears they go down easy

It's your favorite taste I know. 



We’ve got away with all these things

They can’t take what life won't bring

It eats away at all our sins
Until
bones become the only things.



Let's rearrange our aggressive minds 

And freeze them in the snow

I see through the hurt and the lies

I started to go cold

But am I washed up, you said

"Babe just clean up"

But I feel
stung out. 


We’ve got away with all these things

They can’t take what life won't bring

It eats away at all our sins until
bones become the only things.



I’ve got a man who lives inside

Lives inside my freedom

It’s a warm place, safe place to hide 

Call on him when you need it. 



Bones become the only things.
Track Name: Ending Song
I’ve got shadows inside of my head

My thoughts are so dark got me full of dread

I gotta run till my feet feel like lead
Eyelids clasped so tight that my tears run red. 


It ended when it starts
It ended at the hardest part

It ended when it starts
It ended because you tore it apart 



I felt love inside of my head

I saw the night light up inside of my head

I’m a star inside of my head

No one lies no one cries, no one hides in my head.




It ended when it starts

It ended at the hardest part
It ended when it starts

It ended because you tore it apart
