Track Name: On The Run
i was born under a watchful eye
watching people work to die
found a girl she didn't speak
with a hollow laugh she beckoned me
i took a step and she took ten
asked to meet her she asked when
cause you know she's always on the run
i'm all alone playing hide and seek
under a rock come look for me
cause we're always on the run
climbing those crooked peaks
we've got black feet and we can't breathe
but we won't stop until we get burnt up by the sun

she hung me up in a noose
upside down she cut me loose
she turned me on to her open road
but there's no need to follow
you roadside boy up your thumb stuck
think she'll stop and pick you up
but you know she's always on the run
i'm all alone playing hide and seek
under a rock come look for me
cause we're always on the run
climbing those crooked peaks
we've got black feet and we can't breathe
but we won't stop until we get burnt up by the sun
Track Name: Butterflies
the butterflies are the children
there is no time to spare
surrounded by crumbling walls
the pain is too much to bear
won't you take it all away

take it all away
take it all the pain
take it all away
take it all today
i am gone, away

I'm losing fingers and toes
abandoned by my body
well nobody knows
just why I'm fallin' apart
won't you take it all away

those butterflies
their wings with holes like crying eyes
can't grow old but baby they aren't terrified
spread your wings and won't you say goodbye
once it's gone we'll take to the sky
Track Name: Red Army
you look so defeated with your eyes to the ground
just look around
just look around
look at the blind man stumble and yell
the dark makes no sound
the dark can't be found

dont look there those heads on the ground
she wasn't found
he was never ever found
that's why we're so happy when you're not around
so don't come around
dont come around

and i don't have time to sit and devise a plan to overthrow you
no they don't own you
but i've got the words to say it's absurd of what they want to do
they don't control you

i'm not there yet and never will
are things better now
tell me are you happy
are you happy now
Track Name: The Way We Do
just want to wake up and not feel the way you do
full cup and a though puts a step into my shoe
no tears will be crusting in the corners of these eyes
unless the wind wills its soul upon this face and flies
over and over i feel i shouldn't try
closer and closer to a condescending lie
i'd like to pull over and swallow up my pride
it's time to move forward and embrace the shit i hide
like the way we do

but when we're in shock we may start to feel afraid
i look at my shirt it's on the ground all torn and frayed
sophisticated girl has seen some better days
she lies and wanders in the hollow bed she's made
over and over i feel i shouldn't try
closer and closer to a condescending lie
i'd like to pull over and swallow up my pride
it's time to move forward and embrace the shit i hide
like the way we do

this isn't so long more like the way we do
footsteps outside continue to intrude
blankets of time will fold up and undo
this is our time so try to just be you
