Heroes Turned to Whores find me inside I tried my best to understand identify the faith that you have turned to sand locked me inside is this a history you'll die for? kids asking why their heroes always turn to whores but for now they'll pray, they'll kneel, they'll say "we're banking on a secret story" don't jump the gun! I long for a sign my education cannot fail years to realize my youth was taken to and jailed find me inside behind the veil, a wink and a nod kept it inside you made those kids hate god
Saint + Soldiers took a picture of your car the paper's said you've come so far gascan, dashboard the library's on fire you've come to settle the score NYC's a city that wants more from you I met a man who spoke with God but I never even understood the man but better times will find you and you've got no right to think your daughter might forget your life giving in is easy, but then they'll think they've won they'll say "it's the only thing he's ever done" they don't mind to question your taste they can't see your art is cut and paste your legacy is hereby laid to waste and families rarely find the song and you know the songs don't last for long it's when I make these islands disappear you'll know the saints are coming here but better times could find you if you think you might forget the day that robbed you of your life the royalty believes that the years are far between the saints and soldiers worshipping the queen
Join the Light out of reach now, out of reach now gone into a pattern that slips away forgetting real for getting lost sucked into a hole that's speaking your own thought the girl we tried to understand has fallen down beside herself she's writing her reality and trading verse for honey tea offer one or two it's warm outside let's join the light now there's a switchboard running beneath the dunes so families shield their eyes from the ruins has the situation come too soon? to make us see our love for the gloom
The Laugh Track a suitor's got his eyes on you now you feel you've got to do something too doesn't matter if you think its true cos his aim is true, but it's not you and though it doesn't feel right, you know you've got worse ones coming after you and you've got to be in bed by 3 but it's well past that now, and he just won't slow down doesn't seem to be the type of man who gives a thought to writing out a lengthy plan but now you're going hand in hand you think you'll start to see, you'll understand how you've gone so far so long and though it doesn't feel right, his bedroom was a mess, but you still shut off your phone cos you do what you're told because you never liked to be alone it's just a shame the laugh track fades
On A City don't be a certain- fall behind with your footsteps try not to make them align cos when you find you can't decide, you've gone too far with what you've got now if you relax, take a yellow, take this paint off my face and wait place it on a mask you can haunt your own dreams and show us what the fear is all about we'll find shelter, we'll make homes we'll build houses from our bones our very own bones cos when you're tired and on the wire, you've gone too far with what you've got place it on a mask, it'll age a hundred years only to be left on a city bus sleep, run away, you won't know if you go with the demons that fall on your shoulder but don't give them away, they're beside every point that you wanted to make worried, and why? for the sake of a feeling you can't help but feeling is lost
