Track Name: Kingdom Come
There's only so much truth
In his eyes when he speaks to you
Are you a wolf?
Are you a sheep?
Will you fall to me when they come searching?

Heavy hangs the head that wears the crown.
Will the guilt slowly sink, will this anchor weigh you down?
Breaths spew from your lips, your bones will surely break.
The tide will swallow us now, shipwrecked is our fate.
Swim to safety, swim to shore.

Not a word, say no word, you weigh me down.
We live by our word, and die by the sword, die by the sword.

An enemy you've made,
another price to pay,
another price you'll pay.
The metal of the blade,
where you inscribed your name,
where you will claim your fame.
How long, how long til kingdom come?
Sing joyful song, the war is won.

Not a word, say no word, you weigh me down.
We live by our word, and die by the sword, die by the sword.
We live by our word, and die by the sword, die by the sword.
We live by our word, and die by the sword, die by the sword.
How long, how long, 'til kingdom come?
Track Name: American Gentlemen
We are the selfish, we are their slaves
We are the ones that will settle for anything
We are the soulless, we have no faith
We are the ones that sell ourselves for fame
We lie like dogs, but lies can never live
We are the born and raised, salute to the ashamed

"Bring us the skeletons, bring us the blood!
Bring us the photographs to gaze upon!
Show us your talent, show us your shame!
Show us no consequence, we'll do anything!"

We are the sons of American gentlemen.
We are the daughters of the brave.
Rise for what you know is right.
In this name we fight.

Bring us the skeletons, bring us the blood!

Leave us your confidence, leave us your pain.
Leave us the futile, feckless fight to find acclaim.
No more will I subscribe, no more will I oblige.
Shut it down, we're taking over. Shut it down, we're taking over.
The time has come, the time has come
to lead ourselves into the light.

Rise for what you know is right.

We are the sons of American gentlemen.
We are the daughters of the brave.
Rise for what you know is right.
In this name we fight.
Track Name: Love Means Letting Go
I'm chasing an imprint of something I can't touch. The fruit of my labor, is nothing without an apple for my eyes. With distance, I'll decide if I have the heart, if I have the heart to stay.

It may get the best of me again, my tendency toward tautology. Tarmac abounds the distance between us, much like the distance from my head to the ground. I'm a fool, I'm a fool.

Oh, this mess that I've made. No, we can't turn the clocks back now. It's time for my actions to speak way louder than words, so loud I'll never speak again.

I am what I am, flesh, blood, and bone. I am what I am, hopeful and alone.
Track Name: The Weight Of A Hummingbird
I'm a criminal. I'm a criminal. My blood runs cold. My blood runs cold. Icicles, I've got icicles replacing my bones, unfamiliar stone.

Accusations lay to rest in my head. The ester breath of my death maker looms above my bed. Their grave, solace speech, it brings me to my knees. What is it, what is it that I'm fighting for?

My body is a prison, forget the bars of steel. Truth be told, all flesh decays, just in time for my final meal.

My body is a prison, some things time can't heal. Truth be told, I won't be saved before my blood congeals.

Criminal, I'm a criminal. My blood runs cold, my blood runs cold.

I am nothing more than a ghost without a soul, please save me. This chill inside my bones remains. You don't understand, no, not in the slightest. Escape is never permanent.

They take away all of my dreams. They'll trace my veins, still my dreams remain.

Trace my veins to find the dreams that still remain. What I know could bring your whole world crashing down. Find me here: face down, blood-soaked, with painted lungs. Find the gray in traces of past plans we laid.

Before I go, I ask of you one thing. (Know that I hate to let you down.)
Not everyone is like me. (Know that I hate to let you down.)
But if it's me you can't believe in, (Know that I hate to let you down.)
please find another faith. (Know that I hate to let you down.)

I am nothing more than a ghost without a soul, please save me. This chill inside my bones remains. You don't understand, no, not in the slightest. Escape is never permanent.

They take away all of my dreams. They'll trace my veins, still my dreams remain.

Trace my veins to find the dreams that still remain. What I know could bring your whole world crashing down. Find me here: face down, blood-soaked, with painted lungs. Find the gray in traces of past plans we laid.
