Track Name: Kintsukuroi
I don't want the hate to flow through.
That is not my intention.
How can I spread what's right and wrong
when all I see is red?

When all you've known
has let you down,
know that all that's broken
can be mended.

I feel you swinging blindly in the dark,
wanting nothing but a bit of light.
Calm yourself, child of the earth
you can mend yourself with
what you think is beautiful

In between the scars you'll find
what makes you all your own.
The precious things that hold you together
are brought on by your own decision.

I don't want the hate to flow through
but I do know my intentions.
All that's broken can be mended
to be more beautiful than before

Beautiful than before.

We are the pieces that will fall.
We are the value in the cracks.
We are the glue that shines between.
We are the ones to make it right.

Take my hand.
This is your calling.
The curtains draw wide to see your face
so make the time worth while.

We are the pieces that will fall.
We are the value in the cracks.
We are the glue that shines between.
We are the ones to make it right.
Track Name: No Anesthesia
Imagine a man
who tells his story
through a broken, weathered voice.
Imagine him.

Can you see a heart
so worn through time?
Can you see a fear
so vivid in a man so quiet?

Shaken from the day
he rests his head on
his gateway to his ease.

He downs the pills and wine
hoping his mind will treat him right
but he took too much.

Slowly rising,
he hears the angels sing.

His wife now wonders
why he's sleeping this long.
She peers in through the doorway
and sees stillness.

Shaking him does nothing.
Shaking him she screams and sobs
She goes to grab the phone,
but it's too late.

Open your eyes.
It's all in front of you.
I know it's tempting but,

open your eyes.
Open your eyes.
Open your eyes.
Open your eyes.
Track Name: Sing Softly, Sing Sweetly
Tonight was the first night I
watched the sun set in a while.
I saw all of these summer lights
and counted each one.

We would lay down in bed
and sing to the moon.
The crickets would sing back
the melody we love.

I'll hope that the moon
didn't forget about us.
I'll serenade the stars
in hopes that you'll overhear it.

(Chorus)
Sing softly
for the life behind your eyes.
Sing sweetly
for the girl behind your skies.
I will chase the horizon
for however long I can.
I will see her happy
even if it takes my life from me.

In the pond beside me,
your face reflects.
Don't you ever disappear 'cause
that smile's my everything.
My throat's closed up and I
can't even speak.
This train is draining me
as it takes me away.

(Chorus) x2
Sing softly
for the life behind your eyes.
Sing sweetly
for the girl behind your skies.
I will chase the horizon
for however long I can.
I will see her happy
even if it takes my life from me.
Track Name: The Giant Is In France
I heard you in my thoughts
so it's funny that you're here.
Don't you think it's a bit dramatic
to appear so arrogantly cryptic?

I think you'll find it disappointing
that the role you wanted isn't
everything you've built it to be?

Falling, falling, falling to the
oblivion you've spawned
the laughs and cries and the
games you play don't matter anymore

Doctor, save me from this lie
tear open my insides and
free me from this life, oh
Doctor, you're the one living a lie
we're the ones who ask the right questions
and think we get it right, but it's

All a lie.
It's all a lie.

Dropping poisoned apples from
the shoulders of metal giants.
Sifting through the mud and silt
to never ever find gold.
So build your throne and
enjoy your wine and marble idols.
It won't last long.
We'll tend to what was unfinished.

The souls that scream, "Fear the Doctor!"
Falling short of everything we stood for.
Living lies and chasing stories without climax
so hold on tight, this should be one hell of a ride.

Doctor, save me from this lie
tear open my insides and
free me from this life, oh
Doctor, you're the one living a lie
we're the ones who ask the right questions
and think we get it right, but it's

All a lie.
It's all a lie.
Track Name: We'll Bang, Okay? (feat. Danny Garry of Not Tonight Josephine)
You bought yourself some time
but there's a catch, you see.
A man like you, a wretched waste
must pay his dues with his own teeth.

The clock ticks,
and ticks, and ticks.
Will you pay on time
or do I have to repossess?

If you haven't heard
I built a fort long ago
and it's 'cause of people like you
that it had cannons on its walls.
Do you dream at night?
Are they, at all, what you want?

Are they what you want?

If you haven't heard
I built a fort long ago
and it's 'cause of people like you
that it had cannons on its walls
Do you dream at night?
Are they, at all, what you want?

Are they what you want?

(Danny)
Are they what you want?
Are you being naive?
Most people on this earth
do what they're told and take their
dreams to the grave
But not me. No, not me.
I know what I want
and I take what I need.

When you're praying for one more day, remember:
I am God.
Track Name: The Countdown
Standing under these lights,
only 3 words will echo through my mind
and as I scream them with all my heart,
take them and make them your own

I am whole.

Falling fast;
I can't stop.
I can't grab the walls
to slow down my descent.

This crystal ball has every
star I've wished on;
every galaxy and nebula
I've ever thought to sleep on.
If heaven and hell exist
and the devil calls my name
I'll tell him I'm proud of
all I've done.

Strap this to your back.
Stand straight; let the tears
stream freely from your eyes
even though you shake, you grow.
Show the world you're not afraid.
Scream your life story and
don't you ever flee from what could
make your being bright.

I am whole.
