Soul on Fire 04:11
I don't need those sacrifices The ones you claim to cost so much I have no need for your little devices You only use them as a crutch I just need participation I need your soul aligned with mine soul on fire, soul on fire I don't need the town criers So loud their false is ringing truth I have no need for the hypnotizer Pulling the wool and blinding you I just need participation I need your soul aligned with mine soul on fire, soul on fire You can waste your days away You can be propped up as a target In the line of fire like birds on a wire

New Jamb 04:56
Out in the woods, it's dark except the starlight Things getting heavy in the deep of the night Central PA feels more like Georgia In the late summer, humid late summer You know I've made some mistakes, this is no exception Hungry bears they follow me, these things are getting heavy I've made up my mind but my mind is the problem I swear this is the last time I'll wrestle with this demon crossfade to the lion and the lamb. cue the new love. cue the new jamb. I'm in over my head, I'm off the straight and narrow The buzzards circle overhead to feed right off my marrow Oh Lord, can you save me? Lord, can you hear me? Will impunity follow, will you forgive me tomorrow? Now i'm deep up in these woods with things getting heavy I'm at a loss for words, I'm looking for the words And you, my love It's my weakness that you carry on your way to die It's on your way to die crossfade to the lion and the lamb. cue the new love. cue the new jamb.

I saw you as I screamed in the wilderness Screaming out in the wilderness I said, "stop me if you've ever heard this one before" We will not need the moon or the sun A light will shine; an everlasting light will shine Singing prophet songs My darling, they're fitting a noose for me There's a thunderstorm brewing behind this breeze Let's get out through these trees Singing our prophet songs we don't have to be alone anymore we don't have to be alone anymore we don't have to live alone anymore

When i was with you, you took me in We could laugh and sing, two birds on a wing, yeah, we were free But who cut in on you? Set out to deceive all you knew to be has become unglued Am i now the enemy? now that i set sail We were the epitome but now are we off the rails? When i was with you, you took me in As if i were on angel wings or Jesus Christ himself sent to save your sins and I'd do anything to set your spirit free From the rules you try desperately to keep Am i now the enemy? now that i set sail We were the epitome but now are we off the rails? I'm not the enemy just cause i set sail we could be the epitome when we get back on the rails

Hungry Bears 03:57
Sometimes I feel we're up against the hungry bears Sometimes I steal a glance to see if you're still there Hungry bears, a pace away I'm trying to stay positive Ambulance chasers, quick getaways, I'm trying to stay They say we're mockingbirds, mockingbirds Mindless in how we sing along But the trees of the field will clap their hands to these prophet songs Hungry bears, a pace away C'mon, let's try to stay positive Ambulance chasers, chasing away, c'mon, let's try to stay positive We're lost in the woods with hungry bears and mourning doves A broken heart, a broken heart, could be the perfect place to start

St. Mark 03:07
You're more like a buzzard than a dove I guess a buzzard that I'm asked to love A buzzard I'm not compelled to love Don't think I don't see you circling around for me but I just have to let it be I'm just asked to let it be all we need to do is love all we need to do is love Well I guess I'm not St. Mark I've pulled up my shirt, I've shown the scars The things I'd like to keep in the dark I think it's time that you come clean Shine the light so we can see Finally, finally all we need to do is love all we need to do is love

Tired Birds 03:32
All along the way We keep up a front O, my love, when's the fire starting done? We could look it in the eye Face up to the firing squad We'll realize Cool waves wash over us O, my love, i know it seems like i would run Just to escape But i stopped the motorcade Like two tired birds, we took on the sea But it's not just you and me No it's not just you and me Cool waves wash over us We are not alone
