Track Name: Hollow Woods
Hollow Woods

In the Hollow woods
Where we used to go
All alone we stood
In the midnight glow

I'd crawl through the earth just to be with you
I'd poison the well if you told me to

In a frozen gaze
on a cold night
an impertinent waste
of a perfect light


I'd crawl through the earth just to be with you
I'd poison the well if you told me to


In the Hollow woods
Where we used to go
All alone we stood
In the midnight glow
Track Name: Merry Go Round
Merry Go Round

Dancing around to the south American sounds
Trying to keep the rum that I drank to stay down down down
Remember the first time I finally followed through?
Under the sweet glow of electric lamp posts I moved moved moved

We slide and drifted our way through the midnight hours
trying to keep ourselves warm in the summertime showers
The light of the yellowish moon shone on the ground
You can see me calling out but you're hearing no sound sound sound

Missing those eyes and it won't go away, well maybe I'll
be with you someday

He says " Please please please, don't lie lie lie to me "
She says " Please please please, don't cry cry cry over me "

So I stumbled and staggered and swaggered across the floor
and I saw a sweet little girl sitting alone
so I asked that sweet little girl if she wanted to dance
and in a quiet sweet voice she said ....
not a chance !

He says " Please please please, don't lie lie lie to me "
She says " Please please please, don't cry cry cry over me "

she says please stay away she says please stay away
from me
Track Name: Pass Your Judgment
Pass Your Judgment

Lay down your verdict, though I've already heard it before
you can pass down your judgment just know i don't love it no
more
feeling so precious they blessed us poor wretches that's fine
they poured over our bodies with the holiest of consecrated
wine

won't stop these thought s I have running though my head
you better take caution when you're walking through the valley
of the dead
you can call me out if you want but i won't back away
I'll walk through the darkest of nights just to get to the day

horizons are wild we smiled as they dialed us in
the vertigo children are unhappy and unsettled again
we beg for forgiveness though our sins are a thousand years old
and i'll do as I must but i'll never do as I'm told

won't stop these thought s I have running though my head
you better take caution when you're walking through the valley
of the dead
you can call me out if you want but i won't back away
I'll walk through the darkest of nights just to get to the day

you can pass your judgment
you can pass your judgment
if you must
Track Name: Send Them Back
Send Them Back

Said you found your saviour, said he's right on time
so you start a war with your neighbours and cause
some terrible crimes

Too many people wanted progress and found a bad way out
well you can keep your sacred secrets and brother you
can count me out

Hail my sister, the one who knows the most
we found each other upon a sanctioned coast

When the lights fade sideways, into the shadows we'll fall
and leave behind us no trace beneath the cemetery walls

They say a thousand steps forward can take ten thousand back
but every step you have chosen, so you can follow your own tracks

Hail my sister, the one to free us all
It can't be too late for us to heed her call
Hail my sister, the one who knows the most
we found each other upon a sanctioned coast

With a glint upon his eyes, he goes out to mesmerize
but he doesn't stand a hope in hell
He's hid up in a hole and he wants to find a girl
cause he doesn't wanna be alone

the war is over
