01 THE ARCHITECT

(4:17)

Father tell me, what am I to do
I watched everything I love forsaken you
Gun powder burns the temple, exit wound to paint the sky
Wash my sins in the river, this American Lie
Now it comes in waves of blue
Straight from the heart of you

I can see, I can feel, I can reason
I can exercise the demon
I am the architect of your design
I can bleed, I can pay for my treason
Time out of mind and season
Down from the mountains, we are ghosts of your design

Mother, love me like you used to do
It took a generation to kill the god in you
Black elevators carry you beyond the sky
Make me wonder where the chaos ends behind your eyes
Now you dream in ocean blues
In your churches empty pews

I can grow, I can turn with the season
I can die without a reason
I'm the apocalypse of your design
I can die in the peace I been livin
I can live in the war you've given
My rage now crystalized in your design

I can see, I can feel, I can reason
I can exercise the demon
I am the architect of your design
I can bleed, I can pay for my treason
Time out of mind and season
Down from the mountains, we are ghosts of your design

Because I am

02 BLACK OUT THE SKY

(2:46)

The blood in our veins
Holds the memory of what we used to be
In ritual sacrifice
We bleed it from ourselves and we set it free

Like dead angels falling out of the sky
Like the poison in my eye
The only thing I offer you
Free men never stray far
His only light a dying star
Creation, navigation
You lost your pretty head to the flashing lights
Dreaming in opium
The sun burns all creation

Now all the stars have all gone away
And the ships have lost their way
Like the chemicals between me and you

So we blacked out all the sky
And we lost our only way, chasing lights
Now all the machines watch us die
Like a glitch in the electric eye
Watching over you

Now our love is just a hole in the sky
From a sun we always knew would die
Black wings we made to fly
I can't tell if I'm getting through
Awaiting the end of you

So we blacked out all the sky
And we lost our only way, chasing lights
Now all the machines watch us die
Like a glitch in the electric eye
Watching over you
Watching over you
Watching over you

The blood in our veins
Holds the memory of what we used to be

03 TOWN OF CORAZON

(3:48)

When I look into your eyes
I wonder how the hell you got so far
From under all the things that we've been through
Under all the things that we've been through

If I steer the wheel you'll navigate
Pick a song I like and we'll show up late to our funeral
Past the town where I was born

Now we belong nowhere
Ain't got no place to fall
With no chance at all

It's days like these when all the world makes perfect sense
To finally see without our eyes to know we can handle this
If tomorrow takes it all away we still got more
Than we'll ever know so close your eyes
We made it back to the town of Corazon

All the darkness in the world I see
And the trouble with the name I bring all fade away
For moments at a time
Surrounded by the talk of spring
And the revolution it would bring to this beat up town
Where I was born

Cause you and I both know
There's no place to hide, just time alone

It's days like these when all the world makes perfect sense
To finally see without our eyes to know we can handle this
If tomorrow takes it all away we still got more
Than we'll ever know so close your eyes
We made it back to the town of Corazon

Here ships sink faster than the sun
Your life jacket will save no one
This ain't no place to lose your mind
I'm getting out of mine

It's days like these when all the world makes perfect sense
To finally see without our eyes to know we can handle this
If tomorrow takes it all away we still got more
Than we'll ever know so close your eyes
We made it back to the town of Corazon

Baby we are home

04 UNKOIL

(3:32)

Slipping in and out of reason, and I don't mind
The side effects are expected with this experiment of mine
I wanna be reborn, breathe smoke
Think black and call it a night
A temporary eclipse outshines me
For a moment I see no end in sight now

And still I wait for this stranger inside of me
To show himself and let me be

Well slowly I increase the dosage
One more try and I'll get it right, now
Feel my head expanding outward
I've arrived at a place I haven't been before, yeah

Something in the atmosphere is speaking what I wanna hear
The walls have started breathing the colors that I am seeing
The sign ahead reads welcome neighbor
Give up all your fears and enter
Step on through, no hesitation

No disguises, my eyes are wide open
And I can see for the first time
How did we get this far down
How do I find my way back
From this head I've let unkoil

No disguises, my eyes are wide open
And I can see for the first time
How did we get this far down
How do I find my way back
From this head I've let unkoil

05 REQUIEM

(2:16)

This fire's growing stronger as it changes direction
I can't feel my arm
As animals secretly wish our destruction
They watch and wait
The city we've abandoned burns away in the distance
We are no one
Like stray dogs left behind to wait
For dead masters, long gone

Behold the fields of fire as they cleanse our infection
In cold grey love
Now smoke and suffocation be the peace that you offer
The lonely one
California dreamers and skeletons wonder
In lithium
Like gasoline and crucifix
Roman candles and the fourth of July

On Black Friday we dance we play
The tanks roll out and the lovers play
The sun is gone and the moon is high
The wolves will eat and the wolves will die

Saint Francis, you've gone away
You've stuck us here with your bills to pay
No words are left for a pretty song
About how we lived and we got it wrong

06 DUKE OF SORROW

(3:10)

A ballad of a lonely night
The artist and the ache
A broken girl a desperate boy
The love we give is the love we take
Lovers in the away from angry eyes that stare
Battle songs from nowhere bars
And lonely hearts that go nowhere

Some say the art of life is in the smile that you wear
When you remember every line to every song that kept you here
Like flowers from the grave and promises too vain to keep
To be your brother's keeper with the song that you seek

I've been wrong and I've been right
I've been raising hell all night
Been alone in quiet places
With a bottle and song
I've been here and I've there
I've been wasted everywhere
I walked a mile just to know
What it was like
To be The Duke Of Sorrow

Making out in lonely parks
Ditching school to skate that pool
A poor boy and a hungry band too desperate to be cool
Everybody stated out
Some with more, some without
And it's never what you had
It's everything you could do without

I've been wrong and I've been right
I've been raising hell all night
Been alone in quiet places
With a bottle and song
I've been here and I've there
I've been wasted everywhere
I walked a mile just to know
What it was like
To be The Duke Of Sorrow

And I've been wrong and I've been right
I've been raising hell all night
Been alone in quiet places
With a bottle and song
I've been here and I've there
I've been wasted everywhere
I walked a mile just to know
What it was like
To be The Duke Of Sorrow
The Duke Of Sorrow

07 MATCHBOOK

(4:52)

I can see it in your eyes, I can hear it in your voice
The signs are obvious that all we had has run its course
And I don't mind giving up the upper hand in this little charade
Well I spent too many nights here on the floor
Waiting for something inside you to change

Don't look back in anger, now its all that you can see
Cause anger's all I got to keep me warm when you're away
Well I know that this is nothing new but tonight its all I know
Disconnect myself from your memory and never feel anything at all
To justify with all your words don't mean anything to me
Cause I've cut you off
I cut you off

So here we stand and face each other, we've got nothing to say
A flashback to another time when silence was a welcome friend
And Now I'm sorry I can never really say
All the things going on inside my head
Silence is a justified expression of my war
Now nothing's like it was before

Don't look back in anger now it's all that you can see
Cause anger's all I got to keep me warm when you're away
And all your words and all your actions don't mean anything to me
Cause I've cut you off

Don't look back in anger, don't look back in anger
Don't look back in anger, it's just a memory

And I'm sorry I can never really say all the things going on inside my head
Don't look back in anger, don't look back in anger
Silence is a justified expression of my war now nothing's like it was before
Don't look back in anger, it's just a memory

Now It's easy to forget your face and it's easy to survive in this place
Without you, without you

I just comb my hair and wash my face
I keep straight ahead and keep my pace
Don't think about nothin', and my days will be alright
Well I got my friends, I got my pen
I got a million distractions to keep me warm
And I know that I'll be alright, and I'll be alright

08 PRESIDIO

(4:05)

Right about the time you finally lost your mind
You saw blood before you ever heard the shot
What was good, what was right
What was just in sight
Is now the only thing that you got

In the end all good never lasted like it should
We sold out every prophet just to show that we could
Now we take and we fight and we think we're right
Just waiting on what's coming cause we're told that we should

From the banks of the old presidio
If the day is clear and the light's just right
You can see where we all fell
Where it all went wrong

Now who is gonna save us now
And who is better off somehow
We'll think of something better
We'll pull it all together
Now who is gonna save us now

Everything is fine when you don't get out of line
The boundaries are beyond anything you've defined
Imagine what you got
All you need and what you're not
You've taken what you've given and you still got a lot
Gains like these aren't progress
Everything you've been afraid to lose
These beds are burning and graves are turning
Let's say that we paid our dues

Has everything we've lost made it easier
With hearts that murmur, agitate
And remind us of all we were
When we knew who we were

Now who is gonna save us now
And who is better off somehow
We'll think of something better
We'll pull it all together
Now who is gonna save us now

The sound of ghosts and the taste of a grey November rain
All washes away in shades too dull to see again
We barely knew ourselves now it's way too late to change
Like a memory
What we want to be
A glorious tragedy

Now who is gonna save us now
And who is better off somehow
We'll think of something better
We'll pull it all together
Now who will come and save us now
