Track Name: Engines
Ditched in a cage, we're hooked up by the fingers
Throw you away, corrupted by the pastors
You sit and say "I never want to see you"

Gas for the fire, is all I'll ever give you
She'll cut the wire and no-one ever lives through
I'll be the liar 'cause no-one ever wants to

The consequences spill out over me
I'll cut your throat so you can't speak
'Cause i'm all you need and I'm all you know to be

Get some cable, she's going under
And I'm not able to hold her any longer
Like a tide turns, pretend my heart works
And I just can't stay, to love is more than I can take

I'll break down, no engine for the machine
Assemble a crowd and choke the ones I don't need
I'm breaking down, you're hacking deep in my knees

I'll operate, till I get what I came for
I'll take and take until my stomach's restored
I'll take and take until there's nothing anymore

The consequences spill out over me
I'll cut your throat so you can't speak
'Cause I'm all you need and I'm all you breathe

Get some cable, she's going under
And I'm not able to hold her any longer
Like a tide turns, pretend my heart works
And I just can't stay, to love is more than I can take, to love is more than I can take

Drain our heads out so the engine runs free
Educate us to protect this country
We're coming up again
You see I know you don't pay your debts so we'll take what's left

Get some cable, she's going under
And I'm not able to hold her any longer
Like a tide turns, pretend my heart works
And I just can't stay, to love is more than I can take, to love is more than I can take, to love is more than I can take
Track Name: Thieves
Keep yourself from taking my breath
We invent the venomous death
It's on you to make my head work
Just monsters undercover
We grew up in sinking houses
Taught to stalk and kill with purpose
I don't think my heart's in its place
It's too far gone to retrace

You'll find me on the hillside
You'll find me under replaced ground
They took me by the train line
They shook me 'til i couldn't make a sound

We're just thieves that took the young ones
We dug their beds and filled out their stones
Open up and let the dark in
Limbs safely trussed to begin
Love is like a hallow heart shaped vision
Cooped inside the car with no permission
We're two crazy horses, buck when ridden
Nobody threw us a rope to give in

You'll find me on the hillside
You'll find me under replaced ground
They took me by the train line
They shook me 'til i couldn't make a sound
With all my signal's broken
Not a sign that the radar can expose
Just a son to a parent
Put outside for the wicked to dispose

No one knows just what what they're in for
The people talk like bust up records
Two hawks roam the streets for pleasure
They swoop their prey up at every corner

You'll find me on the hillside
You'll find me under replaced ground
They took me by the train line
They shook me 'til i couldn't make a sound
With all my signal's broken
Not a sign that the radar can expose
Just a son to a parent
Put outside for the wicked to dispose

We saw the cost to end a life
Disguise the promise of a knife
Caught in the net tonight, now we're on the run
Track Name: Without a Dime
In my car, its getting closer
The keys won't start, my time is over
Over, i'm over now
We came too far, collapsed and used up
Like gods we are, we sing to keep us
From growing and tearing apart

Diseased and weak from the poison inside
Discreetly dying and losing my mind

Hey, you're killing my brain
We're running until we hit the walls
We're cunning as they come

There's no words to make this easy
The cries we heard from broken families
Are fading out, fading out
Hold my tongue from making sense of -
The things i've done, consumed the taste of
A thousand blood cells in a day, like wild mammals we'll decay
But not this way, not this way

When we depart does it all start again?

Hey, you're killing my brain
We're running until we hit the walls
We're cunning as they come
Hey, you're still in my head
We're building a place for you to go
And no one has to know

Tell all my brothers i'm folding from play
All out this time, without a dime
I live in a squalor, marooned on this bed
We past the post, we finished with no gold to show, no gold to show

This time it's taking over, no passage to get older
My heart gives in to what is waiting for me to go up

Most people perish with nothing to tell

Hey, you're killing my brain
We're running until we hit the walls
We're cunning as they come
Track Name: Witches
Follow roads that wont lead us back home
Soil grows us none but a black rose
Keep my fear inside my head
Hunt whatever haunts my bed
Like witches with their craft still intact
Some apparition watches my back
Exhales a curse for my intake
Remains to stalk me when i wake
Remembering all my favourite words
We have to beg just to be heard
I traipse the woods to find my spot
The trees assist to dampen a gun shot
So dig a hole till you get to stone
And occupy the space with my bones
Fill it with concrete to harbour a ghost
This kind of company hurts the most

When you find my cabin don't go inside
Surround it with fuel and set it alight
What's left of my spirit is claimed by air
Wherever it ends you cannot prepare
Deliver the news in children's tales
Tell them the devil does not prevail
List the ways to defend a home from dark
Gather what's still good before it all departs

So God has hastily fled from his problems
Is he expected to keep an eye on everyone?
His chair left vacant and open for replacement
His beastly brother's the only one who'll take it
Our proposition's a reckless plan that we'll deploy
A sinless home with a plead for grace is our decoy
Imagine it like a blackening of what was bright
It holds you under with no intent to let you rise
Track Name: Engines (Acoustic)
Ditched in a cage, we're hooked up by the fingers

I'll be the liar 'cause no-one ever wants to

The consequences spill out over me

'Cause i'm all you need and I'm all you know to be

Get some cable, she's going under

Like a tide turns, pretend my heart works
And I just can't stay, to love is more than I can take

I'll break down, no engine for the machine
Assemble a crowd and choke the ones I don't need
I'm breaking down, you're hacking deep in my knees

I'll take and take until there's nothing anymore
