Track Name: Yeah Yeah
Yeah Yeah

She’s like home but a lot more confusing to me
A black hole in the center of my whole system, she’ll breathe
So if I don’t just sit here, you bet your butt I’m moving to the sun
And if I do, well guess what! You’re coming along!
(Yeah! Yeah!)

I guess I’ll have a lot of making up to do with you
One day when all the dust has settled down, we’ll fly away
And if I don’t get my head right back on I’m shaking down for fun
And if I do, well guess what! We’ll move it anyway
(Yeah! Yeah!)

If one thing could ever make me
If one thing could make me stay
Well, that thing would have to change me
And that thing could never let me stop

If one thing could ever make me
If one thing could make me stay
Well, that thing would have to change me
And that thing could never let me stop
Never let me stop

(Yeah! Yeah!)
(Yeah! Yeah!)
Track Name: Particles of Doubt
Particles of Doubt

We do not condone our own broken homes
While the system we sit in exists in assistance
No, we don’t believe in retrieving a scheming leader
Kicking, screaming, “Freedom!” Can he even begin to see it?

What’s man, in his hands?
What’s man, in his hands?
Oh man, empty land
Oh man, empty land

You’re not alone in this
Better grab a hold of this

Because, I don’t want to walk around
With all this hate abound
Your hands around your neck
Like someone wants you more
Don’t want to walk around
With all this hate abound
Your hands around your neck
Like someone wants you more

It will come and take you there again
But that’s not the end

Oh, ooh, I feel it like it’s right here
Oh, ahh, I know it like a nightmare
Oh, you, you feel it all the time now
Oh, I, I know exactly why now

What’s man, in his hands?
What’s man, in his hands?
Oh man, empty land
Oh man, empty land

You’re not alone in this
Better grab a hold of this

Because, I don’t want to walk around
With all this hate abound
Your hands around your neck
Like someone wants you more
Don’t want to walk around
With all this hate abound
Your hands around your neck
Like someone wants you more
Track Name: Weakness
Weakness

Fears I lay down, while wrapped in your embrace
I fear you listen to what you want to hear
Judge me gently, your soft lips move to my name
I haven’t let you in, you don’t know yet
What I am

There’s not much that I could do
To make you feel
What I feel when they’re stolen
From their own existence

Don’t stop loving, I hear this, knowing
My heart is going to tear apart
Don’t stop loving, I hear this, knowing
My heart is going to tear apart

Tears I’d shed if my body would let me be
I cry out in anger; for once, I’d like to cheer
Know my weakness, your soft skin, my only aid
If heaven let’s me in, I don’t know yet
Who I am

There’s not much that I could do
To make you feel
What I feel when they’re stolen
From their own existence

Don’t stop loving, I hear this, knowing
My heart is going to tear apart
Don’t stop loving, I hear this, knowing
My heart is going to tear apart
Track Name: Left to Tread
Left to Tread

Storm-like love; teeth-marked drug
Hold her like a glass
In your hand she stands

Scarred and worn; painted morn
Love her like a saint
Never make her wait

There’s always water left to tread
Grow strong enough to wake the dead
Before she knows she’s good as gold
There had to be someone like you

There’s always water left to tread
Grow strong enough to wake the dead
Before she knows she’s good as gold
There had to be someone like you
There had to be someone like you
Track Name: Nations to Discover
Nations to Discover

Not a soul could say to me that I would ever meet you
And have me believe that this wasn’t speculation
Hollow until only lately, believe me
Followed the beat of another heart too far

I swim, I sink, I’d rather let you know the way I mean it
Then guess the words to proceed from this mouth of mine
And have a loaded gun pointed through my heart
Oh, what a lovely start, what a way to start

You shake them, you take them in hand

You shake my bones
You’ll find me become your home
In this world

Come along, we’ll make our way
Grow in places unknown
Nations to discover in us like a secret map of hope
Everything we could be
Anywhere we will go
It will belong to us

Not a chance in hell that I would think of letting go now
I have begun to believe in something more
Onto the bigger, the better, the best
Oh, I find light in exploring who you are

I think, I figured out the only way to make me feel it
Is to keep on doing what you do to this heart of mine
And have a load of fun, through this work of art
Oh, what a lovely start, what a way to start

You shake them, you take them in hand

You shake my bones
You’ll find me become your home
In this world

Come along, we’ll make our way
Grow in places unknown
Nations to discover in us like a secret map of hope
Everything we could be
Anywhere we will go
It will belong to us

You shake my bones

There’s a fight left in me yet
A fight worth a million more
Counting, on my fingers, slowly
Counting all your silent hopes
There’s a bit left in mine yet
A truth worth a heart like yours
Holding onto something for you
Holding up until it’s you

Nothing like those perfect days
Dreaming since they’ve gone away
All the days, I let it call me
Only thing that I could take
Piece of you; my memories
No more pain, I fight it always

Gotta make something of this stress
A stress tearing through my core
Pounding on the walls of my choice
Pounding down the “living for”
Gotta take over in my mind
A sign that takes me back again
Filling in to empty pastimes
Filling up on every joke

Nothing like those perfect days
Dreaming since they’ve gone away
All the days, I let it call me
Only thing that I could take
Piece of you; my memories
No more pain, I fight it always
