Track Name: Burning Bridges
We all go from lambs to lions
We all go from fear to faith
We all go from lambs to lions

We all go from lambs to lions
We all go from fear to faith
We all go from lambs to lions

You turned your back on me
for the last time
I won’t let you walk away
It’s time to finish what you’v started
It’s what you’ve started

Your ignorance has got the best of you my friend

Yeah

I think its time, we part ways
and never meet eyes again
Never meet, never meet eyes again
Never meet, never meet
Your fucking eyes
Your fucking eyes

Your poured your own blood
into the streets, to fend for itself
I’ll fend for myself my self

And I won’t live another day
with you in my way, in your shadow
its just no place for me

You turned your back on me
for the last time
I won’t let you walk away
It’s time to finish what you’ve started

I’ll start the fire on this family tree
I’ll start the fire on this family tree
I’ll hold the line, for what’s left of good in me
I’ll start the fire on this family tree
Track Name: Wolfden
This was a fight of the wolves
check check

Oh a fight of the wolves
A fight of the wolves

This was no habit
and fate wasn’t cast in stone
which wolf you feed will be the new back bone

Oh this was no habit
and fate wasn’t cast in stone
which wolf you feed will be the new back bone

We can lecture, we can listen
We can argue but somethings missing
The ways we’ve worked, aren’t working anymore
Is beauty safe or have we drowned her?

Is beauty safe or have we drowned her
at this point the oxygen can’t reach her lungs
its being spent on words getting us hung
its getting us hung

Is this a problem not worth solving
or we at a point past resolving
I’m up to my waist in all your problems
these definitions are less clear to me

Is this a problem not worth solving
or we at a point past resolving
I’m up to my waist in all your problems
these definitions are less clear to me

We can lecture we can listen
We can argue but somethings missing

I’ll know my own history,
I know its got a lesson not
yet part of me
this part of me

I won’t take an oath
I know I won’t keep
I’ll make a move
I know that you can’t let sleep.
Track Name: It's Only A Snake Bite
Pick yourself up

Your feet don't have enough miles yet

Its time to learn things for yourself, its time to learn things for yourself

Its these moments that define us
Its these moments that refine us
Its these moments that define us, refine us,
It makes us who we fucking are

I have been your reason not to try
Your excuse not to make some progress

I am not your future
I am not your anything

This is no pre made structure for you to build upon
This is not a finished plan placed right in the palm of your hands

We have to start these beginings for ourselves
We have to write these chapters by ourselves
What good is ones life if its by someone else's code

We learn these words all of our lives and still they do nothing

The only thing I haven't heard p p pass through your lips

I'm Fucking Wrong

The only thing I haven't heard pass through your lips
I'm Fucking Wrong

I'm Fucking
I'm Fucking wrong

The only thing i havn't heard pass through your lips
Track Name: Flight 19
I know this won’t last long
but i can tell you what I’ve done wrong

I’ve worked too hard, to let this fall
Its all that I’ve known
and I won’t let go
and I won’t let go
I won’t let go

I’ve given everything I’ve had
Everything I am
Who are you to say, its never enough
Are you to say its never enough
Who are you anyway
Are you to say, its never enough

Until we vanish, with out a word
Into the masses into the never ending
It never ends
It never ends
It never ends

Its where we go
when this is over
where it never seems to stop
It never seems to stop

We hear these voices
In our heads
Telling us, we’re not good enough for them
These voices
Telling us, we’re not good enough
not for them, but for anyone, anyone

We hear these voices in our heads
telling us we’re not good enough for them
we’re not good enough for them
we fall then we rise finally closing blood shot eyes
we are put to rest, with who we are in our chest

Let them speak
With closed lips
Let them speak
Track Name: Outgrown
There once was a boy who held his middle finger to the world
He grew into a man, and found his life had been crippled

Its time to fight fire with water
Im gonna fight fire with water

I won’t spoon feed hate to hate
I won’t spoon feed hate to hate
I won’t spoon feed hate to hate

I am a bastard yes I know
But I’ve done all that I can to separate me from the animals
from the animals

The one’s you’ve yet to tame
the demons living in your life
the ones you’ve yet to claim

A cage long outgrown
its long outgrown

To most its just how it is
and how it always will be

To most its how it is
and how it always will be

To most its just how it is
and how it always fucking will be

I am the messenger and here is my message
you are a wound lets all pass the salt

I am the messenger and here is my message
you are a wound lets all pass the salt

Im gonna fight fire with water
Im gonna fight fire

I won’t spoon feed hate to hate
I won’t spoon feed hate to hate

I can bring a horse to the water
but I can’t tell it to drink

You can tell me what you wanna
but don’t ever tell me what to think
