Track Name: Black Disaster
I like playin' on the tracks where the trains don't run no more and the sun goes faster. The seasons come quick but they don't stay still and it feels like, pulls like black disaster. I like the air when it has its own memory hides when you breathe and considers you a threat. Times like this you'd be better off dreaming or sitting by yourself playing russian roulette.

Crawl in my fields where we throw me away/Oh don't you say you've seen me here and you recall. Fly me my friend on this wind fade away/I'm telling you peace won't come, and the rest will fade away.

I know this dream fresh in my theme. Break me apart just for a start.

Rip me from the vine. R.I.P. and it's just in time, I doubt that. Play me for the fool. Second guess like games, like let's go faster. Kiss and tell the world what kind of girl knows how to heal while bleeding. Out there in the dark it's seeming a heart's not ugly if it's hard to get.
Track Name: Scalliwag
Well the sails have lost their hold and the rain is very cold, the captain's lost his nerve and gone below. We're losing numbers fast as comrades climb the mast, the crows nest is a place of much ambition. They swan dive to their death to join the thunder to be swallowed by the sea's eternal hunger.

Soon it's very clear that I'm left alone to steer, but the clouds have blocked the stars that guide my way. Now there's nothing left to do 'cuz the chain is rusted through. It won't be long before i join my brothers who swan dived to their death to join the thunder. To be swallowed by the sea's eternal hunger.

Now here is my captain who somehow braved the storm. A fighter he is my savior and I trust his mighty form. I know he'll save me form this darkness sail this vessel through the fear. He wraps a bloody arm around me and he whispers in my ear...

"Mate you hush your voice, it's time to make a choice. I will not let you live to slow me down. You see I poisoned my own crew killed all except for you, but if you're brave I have a proposition. You could join them if you like, but with me you'll see the sight of the island where the angels go to play"

What kind of things will I hear when I can see the island that my brothers died to show me? And what kinds of music will the angles play for me I wonder as the captain drinks with me.
Track Name: Crowd Control
Send in the midnight men the night is done pouring in. Hide in the cover of cloud and make all your mothers proud. Bathe in this light, hide in this cold. Love is a silent thing out here where our blood will sing.

Hold your positions lock and load. The fire in the chambers makes the fires in you bold. Crawl through mud, sweep the beach, do your best to hold your breath till the walls we reach.

Time for a little crowd control.

Cry through heaven, laugh through hell. The angels and the demons that you used to fear they're not here but they wish you well. Keep your eyes on that horizon prayers deep in the sand 'cuz if they hear your heart beating they'll be much too fast and that'll be the last place you stand.

Time for oh...

Send in the midnight men the night is done pouring in. Hide in the cover of cloud and make all your mothers proud. Bathe in this light, hide in this cold. Love is a silent thing out here where our blood will sing.
