Track Name: Papa
Papa I fell again,
Off the swing, off the porch
In to Mom's rosebushes,
Bloody hands, bloody thorns.
Brother, are you still at home?
Why do I still feel alone?
Sister I want you to hold.
Maybe in four years or so.

Papa I lied again,
Cold as sleet, through my teeth.
Help me to die again,
And resurrect all of me.
Now do I still have your love,
Brother of mine, bloody robes?
Sister, I know that I'm broke,
But with these hands I'll build a home.

I want to be like an ocean, overflowing with You.

When You arrive, I'll be glorified.

I want to be like an ocean, overflowing with You.
Track Name: Vincenzo
You twist my words, as I did yours,
When you and I were waging wars.
You never learned to meet me on an even ground.
And so it goes, that while you're home,
You'll sink a man with words of stone.
You never learned to be cute and innocent.

To see these sights with younger eyes,
Would I have laughed or nearly died?
I think that I'd put up a fight
If circumstances set it right.

I never meant to use the pen,
But here I am just as I've been.
I never learned to withhold what I'm feeling.
And so it goes, that while you're home,
You'll sink a man with words of stone.
You never learned to be cute and innocent.

I smell a rat, you've set your trap.
You clever fox, I tip my hat.
He never learned to be bold and intelligent.

To see these sights with younger eyes,
Would I have laughed or nearly died?
I think that I'd put up a fight
If circumstances set it right.
Track Name: A Different Light
When I saw your hands
Bleeding out in to the kitchen sink
I said, "Oh my God..."
You said, "None of that!
Don't love me, leave me left for dead."

When you run away,
All I am can't bridge the great divide,
And with every try
You say, "None of that!
Don't love me, leave me left for dead."

I'm sorry if I came across that way.
I'm sorry if I lied.
I pray to God we'll meet again someday.
Until then, "Don't love me, leave me left for dead."
Track Name: Fool
I wish you weren't such a waste of time.
You take me days away from everything I like.
I call your bluff, I call the shots from here on out,
To take the pain away from everything I doubt.
And I'd be mad to think that you and I could ever be
Something productive and clean.

You are a fool! Crumbling from
The inside and the outside.

You've given up, child.
The harlot hath turned thee to bread.
You've given up, child.
You're nothing more than a fool.

You are a fool! Crumbling from
The inside and the outside.
Track Name: Wolves
It's getting late, dear.
You should probably go home.
When the moon is out, you know
We both turn in to wolves.
How about we
Take a walk dear?
Somewhere well lit
Somewhere in public
Somewhere with lots of
People all around.

I don't want to do anymore
Damage than I've already done.

What were you thinking
When you went up on the roof?
For a pretty face you know
I'd turn in to a wolf.
What was I thinking?
Just to have you
I killed a man
I killed a soldier
I killed my soul
And I'd probably kill again.

I don't want to do anymore
Damage than I've already done.
Track Name: Prophets
I tore my clothes in two
Red chariots took you away
I took your spirit and your cloak
And so I had taken your place

Though you begged me not to go
Though they may take you away
I'll follow down to Jericho
I'll follow anyway

Although my spirit sank
Though they may take you away
I'll follow to the riverbank
I'll follow anyway

I took your spirit and your cloak
Track Name: Beautiful Child
I'm not hungry
Like I thought I was
I am tired of these lies
You could say I'm dead
But you'd be dead wrong again

Say your prayers now
Say them like you know you're alive
Take a pill and drown
And pray they never found out who's right

You could be a masterpiece
But for now you're a casualty
Breaking me, and hungering
And I don't want to see you die

God above have mercy on this beautiful child
Have mercy on this beautiful child cause
I don't want to see her die;
I don't want to see her.
