Track Name: Fine
There's no hope
As I sling this rope
You pray
Chair kicked away

There's no plan
But this gun in hand
The shroud
Enters the crowd
Time to play

And you expected to leave
To make your way homeward
Where you wash the lipstick off your face
It's just a night on the town

We are the new headliners
And here's the last encore
Nobody left on the dance floor
Except you and you
You and you

There's no war
Some boys keeping score
The game
Changes its name
To something far more obscure

So am I ready to die
To make my way skyward
Where heaven waits
And the lust frustrates
The lust frustrates
But I'll be wearing a crown

We are the new definers
Of every future word
We are the judge and the jury
And executioner
I'm the one letting y'all leave here
Except you and you
You and you
You and you
And you, too
Track Name: Scales
Boring art
Hopeless from the start
Dumb won't admit
That's not who you are

Hoary tales
Everybody fails
Drunk went to bed
And woke up on the scales
Woke up on the scales
Woke up on the scales
Woke up on the scales
Track Name: Normal
Something happened - I can't explain
I fell beneath the floor - now I don't speak no more

Arms extending - don't be frightened - befriend them
I can watch you from afar - to make sure they do no harm

And it makes me feel alive
As you brave the world inside

Open heartbreak - that I can't stay awake
The darkness burns away as we spin toward the day
My hope will linger on even though I'll soon be gone

And it makes me feel so proud
As you push above the ground
There's a garden full of life to share
You can't see it but it's there

I can feel you out of reach
As I'm twisting down the slide
I'm not hanging on
Because I taught all I could teach
When I held you by my side

I can feel it exit me
All the moments of my life
There's no pain at all
Take the air that I won't breath
At the moment when I die
In you my light will shine
