Track Name: Night Parade
and I give you yours
and you give me mine
Call in your soldiers
Bury the street signs

and you take the torch
and we drink the wine
we're night parading
and we're courageous

once, we strike once and then we're in, we get
what we want, celebrating in our skin, our skin

and I give you yours
and you give me mine
Call in your soldiers
Bury the street signs

so come and make your mark
revolting in the dark
we're night parading
and we're courageous

taking your money back
with every heart attack
I'm not complaining
and its contagious

and you take the torch
and we drink the wine
we're night parading
and we're courageous

Shout, go shout the news we bring, we sing
and walk on, marching down the alley ways, our way

And your flag, that we wave under the stars, this far
will bring back, the great youth that we once lost, once lost

Come night fall we move through the lamp light
and I give you yours
and you give me mine

All together calling a cease fire
we're night parading
and we're courageous
Track Name: Hemlock
I would walk the dark of land
and pace among the raptured kind
and everything could fall beneath me
I won't have a shirt to clothe me

face so numb, the mist of night
with fields of lumber burning bright
I don't want to miss you here,
you're everything I'm holding dear, my dear

I heard in the arching canyons, some birds loose their wings
so high from the greatest distance, no more will they sing

We'll stay with the broken hearted, stay here with our friends
Long gone are the righteous wonders, you and me in the end

And I won't depart this time
So I follow you into the rapture
I won't fear, I've lost my mind
I'm your fellow, take me to the rapture

face so numb, the mist of night
with fields of lumber burning bright
I don't want to miss you here,
you're everything I'm holding dear, my dear

I have found the garden, where we'd loose our pardon
where we'd gather, yea yea yea

I know the God's on fire
stand still in purging neighborhoods
I see the chapel spire
stand close and revel everything
you and I together I don't need to wonder why
Track Name: Southern Charm
All the gardenia on the sideway dropping like they want you.
I'm a believer on the highway when they're playing our tune
driving up slowly though the gravel nothing stopping Sunday
Summer love songing in my longing we can do this our way

Hot city you are mine

Storms on your shoulder and I call it Paradise
Everyone knows this thunder only means bright lights for us

Hot city you are mine
So pretty on my arm

Hot city you are mine
So pretty on my arm
Tell me that you'll make this rainstorm ours
make it ours
dancing through the black night
Hot city you are mine
Oh say that you are mine
This is where my southern charm will lye

This city home, this home is you, you are my summer love song
how do you do it, how do you make it hum
My heart is warm, my blood is red, this sweat is all I have to make it up to you, make it up to you, love.
Track Name: Gigantic
So you say to me that we're going to leave at noon
And I lift my head from the noise amidst the room.
Your my piper and I'm an anxious child alive.
Dropping everything unsuspecting my demise

You could promise we'd be invincible
You could promise we'd play our favorite tune
Automatically be gigantic

Chorus:
Follow me, you won't forget your brother...
Waving to your father and your mother...
She'll take me away across the border
Get me to the promise country...

Bye bye all our souls will shine while our guide takes us home
With a whisper you can fill my hearty with summer's golden hopeful sunsets...

You could promise we'd be invincible
Automatically be gigantic

(Play) a song, to bring along, to sing along the way, along the way
We found our place, so come along, we pave our way, our own parade...
Track Name: Art of War
So there's a mastadon, so awkward in your arms and you're sideways,
like always

last week I failed to say, and you had to have your way
now its too much, and just not good enough
I laughed aloud, so loud you couldn't hear me from the inside, its alright

We shadow box you see, but you just can't see me now in the sunlight
its a good fight

What can I say to you? that won't offend you blue?

Take me on, no not because you know it, like you do know
and just plain playing dumb, I can't believe
its doing this to me, now on the inside, its alight, hurry up now

Hurry it up, hurry up I tell you
Hurry it up, hurry up I tell you patience is a virtue.

We shadow box you see, but you just can't see me now in the sunlight
its a good fight

I can't complain no more
I've mastered the art of war

take my hand, no nevermind don't touch me c'mon
touch me, touch me tell me, tell me
I'm not crazy
I'm not crazy

I'll stand and take the floor
I've mastered the art of war

[Arms tight, stand light, good fight]

You're everything you should've been, I know, I know, I know
You're everything you could've been, I know, I know, I know
Track Name: It's Alright
Golden hazes run the floorboards, morning gray
Gives way to rays upon your face then you tire at noon.

And all these wolves you dream about, these dark caves we don’t dare explore, I’ll ward them away…

With tears and heavy stones you carry on ceramic plates
spinning from all limbs and you ask me how long you were away

Sleeping through the Sunday

Rest now please my darlin
Tidal waves at bay
Don’t you fear, the morning sun
Is on it’s way…

finding mother solace
underneath the moon
Don’t you fear, the morning sun
will be here soon…

wish you were here with us my friend, you say and stare…
for all the things that never came to be, I will always be there

fending off the nightmares

hills and valleys, deep ravines and ivy walls
you’re everywhere we go, in our hearts, we can hear through these walls
echoes like cathedrals

Oh you are strong, much stronger than me, dear
We had a loss, a loss i have no doubt, we’ll mend…
And its alright. our sun will shine again

There is no harm, there is no harm in remembering
There is no mind, There is no mind in forgetting
