Track Name: Burn
Are we gonna burn, are we gonna burn everything we started
Are we gonna lie, are we gonna lie down and take it
Take if from the ones, take it from the ones who don't deserve it.
Track Name: The Mechanic
If I told you a story, would you tell me one too
Would you talk about you're mom and dad and a living room
I could try to be subtle or I could come out and say
All the things I want to tell, all the things I want to yell at the top of my lungs. Yes I could

I had a friend from the city, he was more than bad news
He had a girl in Arkansas and he had mine too
But I had to respect him for what he did with his hands
He could make a car run, he could play the guitar
And he could make a girl do about anything. Yes he could

We were down by the river, and he had dared me to jump
I was thinking about everything my mom had said
Before I knew it he pushed me, and then I knew right away
That there is no mercy in the rocks or in the current that took me far away. It took me

Now I know what they're up to, him and her both
And I know that there's a baby on the way
If I could come back and tell them, I don't think that I would
Because no matter where you turn and no matter what you burn there is just no end. there's no end
Track Name: The Faithful
Autumn was the last time
The last time it felt real
And i don't want to know why
and i don't want to know who with

Just tell me that its almost over
tell me that its almost over dear

Autumn was the last time
Heaven seemed like it might be there
And I want you to know why
I want you to know I care

Refrain

I can see you breathing
while you're lying here beside me
And I can't shake the feeling
That this is going to kill me

Refrain
Track Name: The Optimist
Love was all we knew when we were young
I tried to tell you, I was the wrong choice
But you laid in my lap and you blew me a kiss
and said

Be alive as you can till you're totally dead
Be alive as you can till somebody comes for you

I saw the truth around you're ankles
I looked away, I was embarrassed
But I still made you say what I already knew

Be alive as you can till you're totally dead
Be alive as you can till somebody comes for you

Because behind the decay is the love that I need.

Be alive as you can till you're totally dead
Be alive as you can till somebody comes for you
Track Name: The Atheist
Where were you when I made the sky
Where were you when I tore it down
Where were you when I made the stars
Where were you when I burned them out
Well I'll tell you where you were
You were nowhere to be found
And its what you're headed for
When the heat death brings you down

Where were you in a hurricane
Where were you when a mother cried
Where were you when a father left
Where were you when a child died
Well I'll tell you where you were
You were nowhere to be found
And its what you're headed for
When the heat death brings you down

You fooled me, I married a liar
I'm sorry I met you
Its a good thing you're not listening
Track Name: The Believer
We made it up - We made us all believe
That everything's a fable - even what we see
We have a point - We can't agree
About the truth - of anything
Lion Man won't you come again
And raise our dead - and make us live again

We made it up - We made us all believe
That everything's a fable - even what we see
We have a point - You know you left
Just when things were getting good
Lion Man won't you come again
And raise our dead - and make us live again.
Track Name: The Wager
Once upon a time there was a poker game
It was head to head, It was heavenly
And the devil said he's not you're son
even though he looks a lot like you
Cut him open and I bet he'll run
Cut him open and I think you'll see
Put him down he's a lot like me

Once upon a time, all the whiskey gone
And the man he was burying his kids
And the devil said he's not your son
even though he looks a lot like you
cut him open and his blood will run
cut him open and i think you'll see
put him down he's a lot like me

Once upon a time, all the questions came
Why'd you bet me God, in a poker game
Because the devil said I'm not your son?
When did you start having stuff to prove?
Maybe its something that we both can share
Because I know I look a lot like you
And I know I have a lot to prove
So cut me open and I'll show you, you
Track Name: The Other Man
I am the other man
A name you cannot say
The one that you ignored
The one you pushed away
But I am more than my chemistry
And I live on even when you leave me

I am when you were bored
I am a summer fling
You knew I wouldn't last
So you gave me everything
But I am more than my chemistry
And I live on even when you leave me

I am the other man
A name you won't forget
A tale you will not tell
Mistakes you won't regret
When its midnight
And you're all alone
And you're waiting
By the telephone
For your true love to call and say
That he's alright
That he's on his way to your arms
Track Name: Put It In The Light
Here is what I'm telling you
I'm saying that I want to eat whatever I want
Here is what I'm sayin
I like to go to the places God has forsaken

Because when I'm in the stream of what I do unconsciously
I can see that what I feel will find it's own form
Its almost like I know the meaning of it all
The way to walk on water
You take you're secret dream and put it in the light

I think you might have known
What you were going to say
it sounded sort of planned
I knew you'd had enough when you were tearin up
I guess i never know the power of a word
So here is what I do
What I do is cry
Believing in my heart
That if you had the chance to do it all again
I would be the one

Because when I'm in the stream of what I do unconsciously
I can see that what I feel will find it's own form
Its almost like I know the meaning of it all
The way to walk on water
You take you're secret dream and put it in the light
Track Name: Doing Is Wanting
I love my Mother
I love my Father too
I love my Brothers
I love my Sisters too
I love my Children
I love my Wife too

Yeah I meant to say it Yeah I meant to do it

There was a moment I could have had you
There was a moment you could have had me too
The house was empty, and when I touched your hand
The fight was over.

Yeah I meant to say it Yeah I meant to do it

Do you remember the way you cut me
Do you remember the way you made me hate
I never told you, but I forgive you
I'm breaking out of hell, just like the Son of God

Yeah I meant to say it Yeah I meant to do it
Track Name: Different Blood
Revelation comes when the lights go out
Its the middle of the night when you start to doubt
That everything you see is everything there is
And that it's hiding something

Cause life's a wager
Are you a betting man?

She was five years gone when you finally broke
You had watched her go and you needed hope
That there was someone else who could make you feel
That there was something more

But life's a wager
Are you a betting man?

Revelation comes when the lights go out
Its the middle of the night when you start to doubt
But would you still ask why if you could believe
That we're hiding something
