Track Name: Spirit of the Night
In the forest
In a clearing is where I'd first seen the light
Don't believe me
I couldn't understand what happens in the night

I could see my breath
I felt it's warm embrace
It travels through your skin
It leads you to the end

I don't know just what brought me to this place

You'll be sorry
You'll be sorry when you start to see the light
I was lonely
Now I'm leaving with the spirit of the night

Fighting logic
Struggling with the fact that I wasn't raised right
This world is dying
I'm so lucky to have finally seen the light

How fierce the greed of man
How sparse the love for kin
How do we change our plan
Of outright decadence?

You'll be sorry
You'll be sorry when you start to see the light
I was lonely
Now I'm leaving with the spirit of the night

Now I'm leaving with the spirit of the night
Track Name: The Worst
What you've said's been said
I can't unhear it
I feel the worst is over

Let's go back to bed
I can't wrap my head around it
I feel the worst is over

I know it's done
This feeling couldn't last for long
Can't recover
I feel that the worst is over

The dove he promised peace
Said this all would end
But the branch is broken

Don't you take it back
Let's not pretend that this
Thing isn't dying

I know it's done
This feeling couldn't last for long
Can't recover
I feel that the worst is over

What you've said's been said
I can't unhear it
I feel the worst is over
Well at least I'm free
of your fucking bickering
I feel that the best is yet to come

I feel that the best is yet to come
Track Name: The Hunger
Like sleeping in an ocean, we sleep all through the day
I find you in your forest, you're sitting in a tree
And all you do is celebrate
The ways you know that you are great

Oh you just shut your mouth
Now's not a time for words
I think I'll stay a while
Lay down with me turn the lights down low

I see the hunger in your hips, feel the desire to your moves
I see the lights that change your face, I feel the passion of this groove
Tomorrow this won't mean a thing
A solitary happening

Oh booze it makes you weak
Did we not just meet?
You're in your submarine
Surface when the coast is clear

When the coast is clear
We can take it slow
When the most you fear
Don't think you want to know
When the coast is clear
We can take it slow
When the most you fear
Don't think this love can grow
Track Name: Renegades
You're almost out the door, you say you're going downtown tonight
To make all your dreams real, you say you never wanted this life

Cause all you give is all he takes
So smash another wedding cake
Another wave is going to break
Start living like a renegade

And I'll beat your swollen heart, to find you on your way
But you need to play your part, to fight another day

The winds they never served, so now you've taken down to the oars
Your fate is not to float, you've got to make it back to your shore

The mask you wear is all too fake
Don't be too proud to show your pain
Fighting it won't cause a change
Start living like a renegade
Don't give up don't disintegrate
Don't let the weakness overtake
Your people rally around your base
With reinforcements on the way

And I'll beat your swollen heart, to find you on your way
But you need to play your part, to fight another day
Track Name: Two Step
I was supposed to be something better than
I should have told you this every now and then

I want to tell you what I know
It's probably time for me to go
Spare me from your fancy ways

I won't go

Another night and it's still looking dim
Don't expect me to be there in the end

All I feel is mystery
But it feels so good to me
Good or bad is all we have
Track Name: My Friends
All my friends are gone, I've left them behind
Imaginary friends they die with the passing of time
Oh to fall feels so free, to be unsteady
Cause falling down to your death is only scary in dreams

I stare down my neighborhood, the flashing of windows
Oh my curiosities grow and they grow how they've grown
All my family's gone I've left them behind
There comes a time when a man feels that he has to fly

And one of these days I bet you'll find
The lonely life you thought you'd left behind

All my friends are gone, they've left me below
People are different in the many ways which they grow
Oh off in the night, we race for our lives
Cause the only way to kill ghosts is the bury a knife

And one of these days I bet you'll find
The lonely life you thought you'd left behind
And one of these nights you're bound to hide
The darkest little parts inside your mind

Wondering
Oh you keep me wondering
How you solved all my problems
Led me away from them

Finally I
Finally I begin to see your true colors
See who you used to be
Track Name: Floordropper
I see you dancing
And I want to know, so let it show
What are my chances this seed can grow?
So let it grow

Cause I never ever felt this way before
And I never ever danced like this before
And I never ever want to leave the floor
So let me go, you've got to take me to the floor

What are you drinking?
Well drink it up, I want to refill your cup
What are you thinking?
Do you want to go?
Show me your home

Cause I never ever felt this way before
And I never ever danced like this before
And I never ever want to leave the floor
So let me go, you've got to take me to the floor

You know you want to leave it on the floor
Track Name: Roots
Sit tight
Run fast
Think Straight
It's too late

The night is dark but the light is bright for you
For you

Your buried past is gone but it's still there
A tree it has it's roots and so do you

The night is dark but the light is bright for you
A tree it has it's roots and so do you
