Track Name: Bloodlines
We all know what you're after
We are the heirs of disaster
Our gift to our sons is in our blood
Our reflections to leave

And on this night, you will end your life
Not by choice but by surgeons knife
Elaborately, a web you weave
Of convenient circumstance

Misery loves company, and you've found it abundantly
Modern science, brilliant men
Couldn't make you whole again
Now I admit that I have never been your right hand

We all fail our own bodies
We are just stones
We'll sink to the bottoms of the sea to cry for air

I watched from the other side
Everything that you loved died
Forgotten promise from the dishonest
Makes mere miles feel the farthest
So I took everything in stride
And followed through with compromise
We took for granted the things you slanted
Left us abandoned and caught red handed

Oh you damned us all

Misery loves company, and you've found it abundantly
Modern science, brilliant men
Couldn't bring you back again
Now I admit that I have never been your right hand

I watched from the other side (I've never been your right hand)
Everyone that you love dies (I've never been your right hand)
Modern science, brilliant men (I've never been your right hand)
Couldn't make you whole again (I've never been your right hand)
Couldn't make you whole again (I've never been your right hand)
Track Name: Injustices
This rift grows
Like an atmosphere getting dense
Oh we'll fight the things we hate with fear
So you get what you want and you always will
You'll argue truth until you've had your fill
Nothing can be worse than continuing indifference
Something to be said to the ignorant self confidence

If we gave this half the effort
To love righteous instead of desperately
I was always after the things you never asked for
You were always after the things we never wanted
These injustices we keep

Injustices we keep

The devil is on the outside
Looking on the inside
Waiting for the right time
For our hearts to self divide
We know what you're going to do
We know what you've been through
You don't have to worry cause
We know whats best for you

Close your eyes
And just pretend
You knew you were always wrong

If we gave this half the effort
To love righteous instead of desperately
I was always after the things you never asked for
You were always after the things we never wanted
So we threw it all away

We threw it all
Track Name: Islands
The days were long
Just like our hair
We are who we said we'd never be

That's why you hum along
When she sings her song
You we're never alone
The days became night
And my head grew tired
We were never alone
So we're told

I was all you'd ever need
A friend at home to watch you bleed, but no
You'd rather run

That's why you'll sing along
When I play this song
You were never alone
And how often am I right?
Is it spilling from my sides?
I never said I told you so
I only said I hope you know that

Nothing could make me sink so low
We say "We Are Asleep" but we're just sharpening our teeth
For the next one

That's what you get when you mess with friends
When you'd rather forget than you'd make amends
I won't be alone
Cause you left me to die here with everyone else
Together we stand as a testament
We are never alone
Track Name: Morgues
The sun remained in bed today
To tired to try to raise these limbs
She cried out to me "You'll never stop this you'll never stop it"

So we've gone ahead
Yeah we lost the plot
Theres no difference we can make here
Theres no difference we can make here if they…

Well they closed all of the roads
And still I drove
A race of time against your body
The spinning lights were cold
And I felt old
Knowing I'd be the one to say that you will

Never lift your eyes again
Never
Never lift your head again
Never alone

We're not who we once were
We are at war
Against the light ending this tunnel
There is no end of time
Just what you decide
And we are simple spectators

So now love's last chance
Drives a slow ambulance
And I stopped to get gas
Cause I knew I'd never make it

If I say what I feel
Then I betray what you believe
Oh we've gone ahead
Oh we've lost it all
We are surfacing
We're buried
We're buried
We're buried by our compromise

We are all equal in the basement of the hospital
We are all equal
We are all equal in the basement of the hospital
