Track Name: 7 am
It's seven AM, its so hard to move
With nothing to say, and nothing to do
So I lay here in bed to feel that touch
I know when you wake, this could be rough
But we'll be okay

But it's so hard to say through the smoke in the air
I cant see through to you, and you don't seem to care
What could I ever say? When I'm still here anyway
I'll never love you cause you're just the addict that I am
And I would rather go alone than wait for you
And watch all the waves crash in your head...

It's eleven PM, its so hard to talk
You took me home cause I couldn't walk
Or remember your name
if we close our eyes then we'll be okay
Theres nothing to fear if you're not awake

But it's so hard to say through the smoke in the air
I cant see through to you, and you don't seem to care
What could I ever say? When I'm still here anyway
I'll never love you cause you're just the addict that I am
And I would rather go alone than wait for you
And watch all the waves crash in your head...
Waves crash in your head...

(I drew a line across and swore that I would swim to you
but as the line drew back I was too far away from you)
Track Name: Archers
I hope you're in heaven before the devil knows you're dead
He's taken far too many of my friends
But there's no way out and these steps are no godsend
If we're just sweeping hell under the carpet
But...

The stage is a pulpit
and can anybody hear me?

Everybody's scared
But everyone will sing
There's archers in the audience
And hope is in the wings

I hope you find heaven before the devil finds your soul
He's waiting til you lose control
Have you met the demons moving with you through time?
They live in the back of your mind
But...

The stage is a pulpit
and can anybody hear me?

Everybody's scared
But everyone will sing
There's archers in the audience
And hope is in the wings

Does it feel better to know you're not one of the walking dead?
You can not help being scared of the things in your head
When gods are only monuments to ghosts
They'll find you at your worst

Everybody's scared
But everyone will sing
There's archers in the audience
And hope is in the wings
Track Name: Graveyard Song
Tonight the air's so cool and it's dark outside
Roll down the windows and turn off the light
The cars all fade away into the dark
Pull off to the side and find somewhere to park

Now turn up the music and take off all your clothes
Let's go to the cemetery and wake all the ghosts

Where the graves make circles around two shapes in the cold
And the stars are bright as your legs are finding their hold

The Earth will move to serve us as a bed
The sounds of your cries are stirring up the dead

Now turn up the music and take off all your clothes
Let's go to the cemetery and wake all the ghosts

Where the graves make circles around two shapes in the cold
And the stars are bright as your legs are finding their hold
And time moves slower than ever before

So turn up the music and take off all your clothes
Let's go to the cemetery, and wake all the ghosts
