Track Name: When the Kids Grow Up
There was a cold look in your eyes
the night you said you wouldn't die
I grabbed your hand in mine
and felt your rising vital signs
as the protesters marched around
waving all their misspelled signs
you stooped down to look them in the eye
and said "our Love will never die"

The smell of blood, the look of death
a weakness hidden in their threats
I've made so many enemies,
I need a better memory
We'll never find our way back home
until the misspelled threats are overthrown
never find our way back home,
because this fight's the only thing I know

Our cause grows stronger every day
our shadows bigger than you could ever be

woah oh oh

Do you know, do you see
could you ever believe
that this blasphemy of love could stop haunting me
Did you lose your greatest fight
on the eve of your victory

and did your greatest fire
burn out
find a better cure
in the embers that remain

can't we see that this hate is all
that keeps us from moving forward?

woah oh oh

We won't stop singing
Our songs will deafen your ears
Our hearts grow stronger
We've learned to never show fear

We won't stop singing
Track Name: There Are No Poets (In the Bitter Business)
So find me in the treetops,
find me in the depths of my reality
we won't dine alone tonight,
Perception is everything

Stand so tall
Fall all the way back down
we've sparked a fire that we'll never put back out
so unwell, cuz' we were born into bad health
this is the remedy we can't keep to ourselves

and the smoke, it rose
to the skies
like dying flames
the fires, fight the dark
destined to lose
where no one can hear them
(like no one can hear me)
Even the brightest light cast a shadow
(like no one can hear me)
Even the brightest light cast a shadow

We've seen more war
Than our guns were meant for

Wipe the tears from your face,
here we go, to war
remember the rage at what they took
from us
You see this land,
remember how you toiled under its sun
we'll bring war to see that it's
undone

we march to war

the smoke, it rose
to the skies
like dying flames
the fires, fight the dark
destined to lose
where no one can hear them
(like no one can hear me)
Even the brightest light cast a shadow
(like no one can hear me)
Even the brightest light cast a shadow
Track Name: More Than a Shadow
Woah oh
Track Name: StarFox, Help!
We cast our lots just to see
where this would lead
to a thousand roads where the night
breathes life to me
oh my friends, my soulmates,
my family
this is exactly where we are
meant to be

and I don't know if it gets any better,
forget the road we'll make our own
I guess we'll just have to keep waitin for warmer weather
old path, white clouds, Take me home

This is the way
that we can break any storm
this is the way,
that we can make our own Wharf
Im not afraid
To say im not okay
We'll make our own way

and our hair, grows out
forming rivers down our backs
and our feet, they move forward
moving past what our past is
we're growing up

And I dont know if it gets any better
Forget the road, we'll make it on our own
Guess we'll just have to keep waiting for warmer weather
Old path, white clouds, Take me home
Track Name: Thank You, Tree Man
It's an emergency
we're taking back the streets
we will not live as sheep
we bow before no king
And I still find myself attached
to the city
As it once was
not what it's becoming

If you think you're living
If you think you're dreaming
if you really believe them
they're already winning

It's a blasphemy
To live your life this way
consuming your sadness every day
you can't make up for
a love you've never known
with the emptiness that is all
you own

If you think you're living
If you think you're dreaming
if you really believe them
they're already winning

This is the grave
you chose to stand beside
this is the way
you will spend the rest of your life
Track Name: New Signs
So cover your ears
cuz i've been lying about every single thing
Cuz no one's really listening
So let it all out,
your indifference
I never said I could get you through it
All these things, that we see
striking out at the person we don't want to be

Bring it down,
all this dirt in my lungs
Just keeps building up, it's suffocating
You're saying what I don't want to hear
and I'm so tired, So tired

Woah oh,
We lost the drive to keep on losing inside
woah oh,
Killing off all but the worst in these new signs
woah oh,
We are the drive, we won't keep losing inside
woah oh,
Killing off all but the worst in these new signs

So open your ears
I've got something to say for the first time in years
Feeling so broken down,
like my soul is pouring all out on the ground
and I've been carrying you for the last five miles
Feet are broken, Knees are giving out
You look down at me,
Say "it's gonna take longer"
Woah oh,
I just gotta be stronger

So hold your fist high
cuz' we're about to lay all the bullshit out
that everyone'es been taking
it's been too long my friend, but now we're back again
you've had your turn now
and we're not gonna take it

Woah oh,
We lost the drive to keep on losing inside
woah oh,
Killing off all but the worst in these new signs
woah oh,
We are the drive, we won't keep losing inside
woah oh,

The Better Cure, is more and more in sight
