Track Name: Never Hurt
Brother we have come to far, let's turn around and go back home
Run into our mothers arms in the barren cold unknown
Treading through the snow and mud, on my conscience is your name
Don't you think you've done enough? There's no solace in your game

As our footsteps melt the snow
We leave holes in the dirt
Where the critters live to know
They'll grow old

I heard the abandoned choir in the night while you slept
Every voice of every liar made me shiver as I wept
And as we watched the wreckage burn, you would try to shield my eyes
From the fire I would turn, brother I apologise

As our footsteps melt the snow
We leave holes in the dirt
Where the critters live to know
They'll grow old and never hurt

As our footsteps melt the snow
We leave holes in the dirt
Where the critters live to know
They'll grow old
Track Name: Start a Fire
I give names to my demons, those who write
All of my choices, all of my memories
I give thanks to the people who were right
When they spoke to me, they're all I'll ever see
When you go

I get high on the bitter taste of life
You know it comforts me, that I won't ever need
Your love

I burn these pages and start a fire
I breathe in the smoke and I rest a while
I teach a lesson to the abandoned young
I speak of love through gritted teeth
If I can't have love then love can not have

I give blame to my demons, those who use
All of their voices, just to frighten me
I wish pain on the people who were wrong
Though they were kind to me, I'll feel only envy

I ask why such a bitter waste of life
Oh the irony, that you want sympathy
And I want love

I burn these pages and start a fire
I breathe in the smoke and I rest a while
I teach a lesson to the abandoned young
I speak of love through gritted teeth
If I can't have love then love can not have

I burn these pages and start a fire
I breathe in the smoke and I rest a while
I teach a lesson to the abandoned young
I speak of love through gritted teeth
If I can't have love then love can not have
Love can not have
Track Name: Bethany
What is the meaning of the line?
The line that forms and seperates, then vanishes
The fire is burning on both sides
Of the divide that only punishes those it promises

They walk in the shapeless light of day
It's too hard to breathe in the factory
But they are blinded by decay
Beset by the men who wait in poetry

But it was resolved in a river of smoke
When she spoke from the soul
All of the villains awoke
And saught control

The truth is, it has never been alright
The fire was burning long before the divide
We've simply forgotten what is right
We were strong before, we held on before
Because we felt love before

But it was resolved in a river of smoke
When she spoke from the soul
All of the villains awoke
And saught control
Track Name: The Divide
What is the meaning of the line?
The line that forms and seperates, then vanishes
The fire is burning on both sides
Of the divide that only punishes those it promises

They walk in the shapeless light of day
It's too hard to breathe in the factory
But they are blinded by decay
Beset by the men who wait in poetry

But it was resolved in a river of smoke
When she spoke from the soul
All of the villains awoke
And saught control

The truth is, it has never been alright
The fire was burning long before the divide
We've simply forgotten what is right
We were strong before, we held on before
Because we felt love before

But it was resolved in a river of smoke
When she spoke from the soul
All of the villains awoke
And saught control
Track Name: Float
My double jointed wings
These twisted broken things
They throw the wind back in my face
But my troublesome regret
That which I can't forget
It puts me right back in my place

When dead birds float, I sing
When all else fails, love wins

These people that I know
All dancing down below
They kick the dirt up in my face
But my troublesome regret
That which I can't forget
It puts me right back in my place

When dead birds float, I sing
When all else fails, love wins
Our sailors all fall in
When broken sails catch wind
