Track Name: What If God Was One of Them?
WHAT IF GOD WAS ONE OF THEM
Choice is a four-letter word
Our wild desire, a dumpster fire
Trash is a five-letter name,
With orange face and plastic fame

Cling to the cabaret
Burn me in effigy
And together, we’ll climb
The Hill we’ll die on

Choice is a four letter word
When pinned beneath the things you cannot
Change is a game where we find
Another place to look away

So skip the eulogy
Burn me in effigy
And together, we’ll climb
The Hill we’ll die on.
Track Name: Gun Without a Trigger
GUN WITHOUT A TRIGGER
Come now, friend
Abandon here what we began
Come now, hearts
Evangelized by faith departed

Now it’s more,
Love is not a
Game, it’s war.
I hope you know what you’re fighting for.

I know it’s not for me
It’s killing me to be
Faithful, faithful
Faithful to tainted memories

Swing now, chains
Rattle free what hate remains
Come now, arms
Armed with only broken parts

We break the spell
Your love is not a game,
It’s hell.
It’s how you taught me to hate myself

I know it’s not for me
It’s killing me to be…

(Gun without a trigger)

If we go this deep,
If we go this far,
If we go this deep,
I’ll leave a scar
I’ll leave a scar

So be still in the grass
And watch for, wait for
Your game to advance
As I fall into your hands.

We’re gathered here today
To throw it all away.
Faithful, faithful
Faithful to tainted memories.
Track Name: Anyone but Us
ANYONE BUT US
Look straight in my face,
And know it’s one you’ll someday hate.
And after all the wrongs, you’ll
Long to never see me again.

So be brave in my faith,
And know it’s one you’ll someday break
(One you’ll someday hate)
So sing along, this song is
Only getting sadder
As it goes.
And you’re flattered,
So it goes…

It’s never been a…

Mystery to anyone
Mystery to anyone
Mystery to anyone
But us.

Look straight in my face,
And see your world before it’s changed.
And after long, you’ll long for
Nights with fights worth fighting all alone.

Draw life from my breath
Baby, it’s always life or death
And on the line, you’ll wait to
Find if I’ve been

Seeing someone else in
The shape of yourself
Wondering how the hell…

It’s never been a…

Mystery to anyone
Mystery to anyone
Mystery to anyone
But us.

I don’t see the harm in it,
If we saw the harm in it.
And I don’t see the harm in it,
After all, you started it…

It’s never been a…

Mystery to anyone
Mystery to anyone
Mystery to anyone
But us.


Pretend that we’re friends,
And talk shit on way back when.
And learn the price of innocence is
Never knowing what it costs.
Track Name: Fuck It up, Buttercup
FUCK IT UP, BUTTERCUP
Trainwreck, don’t flip
Before you turn it all to shit
It’s dangling too close
Never one to hold your tongue

Say you’re strong enough
Are you strong enough?

To keep control,
You’re too close

Would it hurt? Would it show?
Would it kill you to know?
Heaven-sent, and hell-bent tonight

Would it hurt? Would it show?
Do you think they would know
That you’re losing control?

Shitshow, don’t cry
Smiling while the hearse goes by
Dying to know
If anyone
Believes you’re…

In control,
You’re too close
To keep control.

Say it, you wanna
Say it, you wanna
Make it a problem,
Say it.

But keep control…

You know it’s true, you’ll
Never keep control.
Track Name: Complications (of the Modern World)
COMPLICATIONS (of the Modern World)

It’s hard to draw a heart
Scraping silently, you pick the scars
But you can’t pick who you are
Trembling fingers point to somewhere far

Out of Reach,
Out of focus and weak.
Shame comes cheap, it seems you’re
Suffering from…


Complications,
Complications
Complications
(in the modern world)

It’s hard to find a heart inside of anything

Try to guess the side affects
Loss of friends, and shitty sex

Complications,
Complications
Complications
(in the modern world)

Been learning slowly,
To be good is to be lonely
It’s going numb, from the
Weight of the years yet to come
So fuck without feeling,
Gone before I was leaving
So don’t try to save me, cause baby
You don’t know, where I go…

When I’m afraid, when I’m alone
When I’m afraid, when I’m alone
When I’m afraid, when I’m alone

Not a hero, I’m just unsung.
Not a hero, I’m just unsung.
Not a hero, I’m just out here alone (I’m alone)

Complications
Complications
Complications
Track Name: For Dear Life
FOR DEAR LIFE
Your eyes are the firing line
Your aim’s as good as mine
Made weak by time and faith,
Our young dreams fallen ill

(Keep the crosshairs still)

In light of life, in dark of night
Will I come alive?
In light of life, in the dark of the night
Drag on, for dear life.

We’re here for dear life
Still guilty of killing Christ
Embattled and abandoned
Damned, we still drag on.

(The station of the crossed)

In light of life, in dark of night
Will I come alive?
In light of life, in the dark of the night
Drag on, for dear life.

The Way of Sorrows is long.

So long.
