Track Name: Crying Birds
It was back in the days when the blackened haze
Made its way inside their brains
Altering fate with the rest
She was choking with the best
Long black hair curling down
Side of the road face in a frown
Making an attempt
An attempt not to feel now
She was cold
he was hurt
They were face down in the dirt
Left with the crying birds
Unable to sing yet
It was a very very nice evening
The night before
But here comes the anxious dawn
Here comes the shock of dawn

Spiral Higher
Wake to the sound of crying birds
Humans on fire
Wake to the sound
Spiral Higher
Wake to the sound of crying birds
Humans on fire
Wake to the sound
Of crying birds

February rolled around
With the quickening of the clouds
And she was once again in hell
Struggling to tell
How many wines it takes to make a better day
Or lips to break away from shame
Skyline berates her name
Blue blood thickens in her veins


Spiral Higher
Wake to the sound of crying birds
Humans on fire
Wake to the sound
Spiral Higher
Wake to the sound of crying birds
Humans on fire
Wake to the sound
Of crying birds

How can I stay here (How can I stay here)
I never hear birds singing
I only hear them weeping
She takes one step outside
Finds a dead butterfly
Says does this mean anything
Does this mean anything
Thought the blue would go she methim
Now she's sharing a bed with him
And the colours are getting bolder,wilder
Stagnant underneath ber skin
Head pressed to his Chest listening to the irregular
Heartbeat of a sinner understanding
Understanding absolutely nothing about the constructs of morality
Letting go of her sanity
But she was holding onto her vanity
Shouldn't be seeing him

Spiral Higher
Wake to the sound of crying birds
Humans on fire
Wake to the sound
Spiral Higher
Wake to the sound of crying birds
Humans on fire
Wake to the sound
Of crying birds

She said I may be just eighteen but believe me I have seen
Enough black seas of torment to come up and be contemplating death
It's not a place you want to go to
If I fell into the snow would you
Pick me up
Hold me up
Sit with me and talk with me
He said I always loved the sound of these sad, tormented birds
Their voices may not be usual
But I think their songs are beautiful
Why does something have less value if its harder to see into
Hey my love
It's kind of like you
Track Name: Angels
He was lifted up
The angel found his bones so heavy to carry
Such a weight inside the human mind
And every part of the body

Oh, it's up to us
To lift them up
It's up to us to hold them
Oh, as angels
We must gain their trust
They're weak enough
We'll save them

She had never thought of herself
as anything divine
Anything sublime
No godmother
No caring father
No protection from above
Or any angels trust
She began to wish that she was dead
But found instead a helping hand


And now they try
To lift her bones
To lift her heavy human bones
I know they'll grow
Ill wait below
For any sign of angels
Oh
It's up to us to lift them up
It's up to us to hold them
I said Oh, as angels
We must gain their trust
They're weak enough
We'll save them

Who will save them
Carry the angels carry the angels
Why do we break them
Torture the angels
Torture the angels

See I need to feel my soul is real
This ain't no life I'm living
Yes it's up to us to lift them up
But bones are getting tired
Oh it's up to us
To lift them up
It's to us to hold them
Oh as angles we must gain their trust
(They're weak enough
We'll save them)

Me I think I'll cry
Just break down die
If I have to see another baby go
So now you know the strength I've shown
Can you please treat me better

Oh I lift you up
With angels love
Take you to higher places
Yes we lift you up with angels love
We are here mother race here
Track Name: Blue Home
There's a storm coming in
Grab your coat
I've found my shelter
And I won't let go

There's a girl in the sky
And she's calling your name
You hear the thunder
But you don't feel the rain

You hurt me in the room
Hurt me from a far
But the sky is moving
There'll be no more scars

All of the tales that we would read
I never stopped listening
So they became a part of me

Let me be your girl inside our blue, blue home.
Let me be your girl inside our blue, blue home.

This blue house
It never was a home
Seasons of torment
And heartbreak alone

Everythings distorted
That's what you told me
Heart on the floor
Because you would never hold me

You better not be crying
When you call out my name
I've been on a hard road
You don't know the pain

The way is twisted
But Im twisted too
Lets celebrate INSANITY
Just me and you

Let me be your girl inside our blue, blue home.
Let me be your girl inside our blue, blue home.
Dreams will leave the room.
All my dreams will leave the room.

Its coming up to sunrise
I'm waiting here outside
Waiting for the words to come
For my heart to hide

Im waiting for the countdown
Im waiting for the gun
Waiting for the shadows
Waiting for the sun

Waiting for the fire
Waiting for the air
Waiting for the water
Waiting for the test

Waiting for my life
Waiting for my death
Waiting for your eyes
Im waiting for,
waiting for..

Let me be your girl inside our blue, blue home.
Let me be your girl inside our blue, blue home.
Track Name: Not In a Bad Way
I take one step away from this famous place
To find my face embraced by a
Cold wind of shame
Inside these days we bleed to escape
But I would never change just to feel safe
People live and die in their black seas
Loss of identity
Fall to your knees
On your way to escape me
The cycle has begun again
And now we curl up to hide from the sun again
Sweet misplacement
Lovers and haters
Morbid phases and eyes that displace us
I try to turn but there's no soul to turn to
It's a simple move but I still can't feel you
Easy eyes
Simple sighs
Bitter cries
Undermined
Undeniably sucked dry to market us
They’ll never see the spark in us
We have more fire inside
Than the worlds supply of light

The water is clear
I'm going down
Not in a bad way
My strength is here now
We are the passion
We are the fight
Call all among us
To make the world right
Soon we will breathe
As one again
This will be power they can't comprehend

I look up to the starless sky
Followed by the neon lights and dismal signs
Billboards cry
come and consume this before you die
You'll be fatter and happier if you drink the redder wine
In the nick of time
Our memories are only seen
On the cold skin of a grey computer screen
This takes away pain
Helps to keep the brain clean
So much dirt that creeping inside our crowns
Making us howl
Fall down
And weep for a different now
But now is all there is
And ever will be
Until the day i see
I will tell everyone Im blind
I would rather this than for them to find
My loss of integrity was anything but sublime
It shocked me
And friends in sight
They left me alone in the stagnant night
But my dreams are coming back
I've found my fight


The water is clear
I'm going down
Not in a bad way
My strength is here now
We are the passion
We are the fight
Call all among us
To make the world right
Soon we will breathe
As one again
This will be power they can't comprehend


I take one step away from this famous place
To find my face embraced by a
Cold wind of shame
Inside these days we bleed to escape
But I would never change just to feel safe

The water is clear now
The water is clear
And I’m going down
But not in a bad way
Not in a bad way
They tried to take my passion
They tried to take my fight
But I’m going down
And not in a bad way
Not in a bad way
The water is clear (x4)
And I’m going down
Only going down
Not in a bad way
Not in a bad way
The water is clear (x4)
And I’m going down
Only going down
Not in a bad way
Not in a bad way
