Track Name: Bad Trip
As the fog hits, we are in the eye of the storm
Cobble streets, your bare feet are weathered and worn
Dizzy fear washes over you once again
On the mend, no reason for you to fear the end

We are all ugly, under our skin
We all keep the monsters out of our heads
We all have the right to fight
We might
For our sons and our daughters,
Mothers and fathers

We stand tall
We stand tall
We stand tall
We stand tall

Tall grass growing right in front of your eyes
It’s all too fast, the dust it clears like a million flies
It’s no surprise, the tide is rising once again
Feet in the sand, no telling what lies around the bend

We are all ugly, under our skin
We all keep the monsters out of our heads
We all have the right to fight
We might
For our sons and our daughters,
Mothers and fathers

We stand tall
We stand tall
We stand tall
We stand tall
Track Name: First Day Around The Globe
On your first day
They laughed it up and you’re not alone
Someone found your name
Engraved on a withered stone on a dead end street
I went four days
Walking five feet deep in snow
And as my feet sank
The wolves surrounded me, how their eyes they glow
(Woah) how their eyes glow
On your first day around the globe

I went three weeks
In the middle of the ocean
Each day came the same
As the water threw my boat farther from the shore
Do you walk away, or do you run
That’s not your game
On your first day around the globe

I was hoping I, hoping I,
I was hoping I, hoping I,
I was hoping I, hoping I,
I was hoping I, hoping I could
Run, run, run, run,
Run, run, run, run,
Run,
On your first day around the globe

And I found it odd,
The sounds at night, the sounds at night
And I found it strange,
The hounds they bite, the hounds they bite
And I found it odd,
You’re up all night, you’re up all night
And I found it strange
On your first day around the globe
Around the globe
Around the globe
Around the globe
Track Name: The Vines
I couldn’t fall fast enough
The vines they grew faster, too slow to clutch
Begins with envy and ends in lust
Starts with measure and ends in none

I grew up, it started today
It’s not fault you cannot play
I’ve known your family since I was nine
Best intentions, I love them like mine

The walls began crawl and doors began to shut
It’s all in your mind, no time to wait for luck
Too bright to shine and too weak to fall
The pleasure’s all mine and the battle is won

I grew up, it started today
It’s not fault you cannot play
I’ve known your family since I was nine
Best intentions, I love them like mine

The waterfall keeps nothing the same
Rocks that transform keep the humans at bay
The palace gates are covered in rust
Marble and stone has now turned to dust
Track Name: Cold As Stone
Break down the walls of fire
Each time you walk spire
Blood boils in the sunlight
And you know, you know, you know
I was born eons ago
When the devil’s coat was white as snow
His tongue twisted and tangled so
And he knows, he knows, he knows

You were walking the longest mile
Body, mind, and soul alligined
You were walking alone from the devil's throne
Cold as stone

He never kept his ways
Tongue split and vacant gaze
His crystal ball was a broken maze
And it shows, it shows, it shows
Cards played, he knows your hand
Some stood, some fought, some ran
A fleeting feeling as you forget
His ways, you leave unscathed

You were walking the longest mile
Body mind and soul alligined
You were walking alone from the devil's throne
Cold as stone
You were walking the longest mile
Body mind and soul alligined
You were walking alone from the devil's throne
Cold as stone

Hours pass and go on for days
Water rising, it speaks your name
Trees fall, the roots decayed
This world, this earth we know
Track Name: Temperature
As the temperature drops, she stops thinking about her
The moon washes itself across the open water
The more you think, the more you wish, the more you wonder
And I don’t want to let it go, and I don’t swim for no one
And I don’t want to let it go, and I don’t swim for no one

She’s wearing six-inch heels, red dress, and purple aviators
She only drinks whisky straight
I can’t catch up, and even if I did, could I hang on
She don’t think so
And I don’t want to let it go, and I don’t swim for no one

I know, you’re there in soul
Your body and your mind is cold
I know, you’re there in soul
Your body and your mind is cold
I know, you’re there in soul
Your body and your mind is cold

I’m going back to my mind
I’m going back to my mind
I’m so intertwined
I’m so intertwined
I’m so intertwined
I’m so intertwined

As the temperature drops, she stops thinking about her
The moon washes itself across the open water
The more you think, the more you wish, the more you wonder
And I don’t want to let it go, and I don’t swim for no one
And I don’t want to let it go, and I don’t swim for no one

I won’t give up for nothing, for nothing
I won’t give up for nothing, for nothing
I won’t give up for nothing, for nothing
I won’t give up for nothing, for nothing
