Track Name: I Explode
what's love? just a word to describe how you feel
what you want, what you need, and all your appeal
I've seen secrets that you'd kill to conceal
now tell me, how does it feel?

let's see how fast we can go
let's see how fast we can go
let's see how fast we can go
let's see how fast we can go

and these are fightin’ words don't you get it confused
we'll leave you battered, leave you broken and leave you bruised
pillage your village till there's nothing left then we're through
cause that's what russians do, I Explode

I Explode

let's see how fast we can go
let's see how fast we can go
let's see how fast we can go
let's see how fast I Explode

I Explode
Track Name: Someday
when I hear wedding bells I get up and run
too tall to be a jockey, I just drink like one
who’s gunna care when I’m said and done
I’ve never seen fireworks in the falling snow
the longer that I live, the less I know
I’m sick of getting older, gunna take the money and go

"Someday" I'll be there for you
"Someday" I will treat you good
"Someday" I will follow through
like horses running over the hill
"Someday" I'll be back for you

I’m running out of chances to take my time, yeah
who says love is a victimless crime
I’d give it all away, for a shot just to make you mine
built to be a scrapper, no intention to last
intent on dying and doing it fast
keep moving on with the thrill of an atomic blast

"Someday" I'll be there for you
"Someday" I will treat you good
"Someday" I will follow through
like horses running over the hill
"Someday" I'll be back for you

"Someday" I'll be there for you
"Someday" I will treat you good
"Someday" I will follow through
like horses running over the hill
"Someday" I'll be back for you
Track Name: Wake
your eyes betray you
and your words have done the same
you've played with matches
now there’s no one left to blame
your smoky voice and seesaw laugh
now your mother’s crying on your behalf
no note just a photograph...why is that?

wake up Alexandria
it’s not your time to go to sleep
there are secrets to behold
there are promises to keep

did you stop to think
that you're not the only one
now the day is over
but the mournings just begun
I'm standing here in the aftermath
your sister’s crying an epitaph
no note just a photograph...why is that?

wake up Alexandria
it’s not your time to go to sleep
there are secrets to behold
there are promises to keep

wishing the world away
wishing the world away
one more endless day

wake up Alexandria
it’s not your time to go to sleep
there are secrets to behold
there are promises to keep

wake up Alexandria
it’s not your time to go to sleep WAKE UP WAKE
there are secrets to behold
there are promises to keep WAKE UP WAKE
Track Name: Shine On
station to station, investigation
pushing past redacted regulation
proven collusion, controlled confusion
walk the plank or join the illusion
They put me down, they say I’m wrong
They threaten me with discipline
They say you can't shine in the dark
I say all you need is a spark

an expectation of validation
the static hiss of no communication
lie by omission, history revision
a reign of blows for another incision
mounting frustration, false constellation
the stars are blackened with mass deviation
denied admission, the worst position
keep in step with mother's superstition

They put me down, they say I’m wrong
They threaten me with discipline
They say you can't shine in the dark
I say all you need is a spark
shine like a diamond in the black sun
we are not afraid let the night come
shine like a diamond in the black sun
we are not afraid tonight

shine like a diamond in the black sun
we are not afraid let the night come
shine like a diamond in the black sun
we are not afraid tonight
They put me down, they say I’m wrong
They threaten me with discipline
They say you can't shine in the dark
I say all you need is a spark
shine like a diamond in the black sun
we are not afraid let the night come
shine like a diamond in the black sun
we are not afraid tonight
we are not afraid
we are not afraid
we are not afraid tonight
we are not afraid
we are not afraid
we are not afraid tonight
Track Name: Bang Bang Romance
she’s shaped like a pistol
see her barrel shine
the girl is always pretty
when the girl is not mine

[He said] I don’t mind to watch you suffer
[She said] I don’t mind to watch you bleed
[He said] I don’t mind you're just trouble
[She said] I don’t mind you got what I need

it was a Bang Bang Romance
Bang Bang Romance
Bang Bang Romance
Bang Bang Romance
Bang Bang, hey

She’s tacked with ammunition
bullet proof vest
trigger happy fingers
aim for the chest

[She said] I don’t mind to watch you stutter
[He said] I don’t mind to hear you weep
[She said] I don’t mind you're insincerities
[He said] I don’t mind you got what i need

it was a Bang Bang Romance
Bang Bang Romance
Bang Bang Romance
Bang Bang Romance
Bang Bang, hey

it was a Bang Bang Romance
Bang Bang Romance
Bang Bang Romance
Bang Bang Romance
Bang Bang, hey
Track Name: Pines
loss of innocence, persistent, distance
slipping away, regret and redemption, ashes fill the
air, smells like winter, for a moment, I can remember
is it ever enough to repent, is it ever enough
to repent, between the lines, where the water meets the
pines, is it ever enough to repent, is it ever enough

wait, why won’t you
wait, why won’t you
wait for me, Sweet-
heart Sweet-
heart

now it’s too late, skies are dark without the stars
may the night cover me with leaves and a blanket of virgin
snow, it's easier to die than grow old, it's easier to die
then grow old, is it ever enough to repent, it's never enough

wait, why won’t you
wait, why won’t you
wait for me, Sweet-
heart Sweet-
heart
Track Name: Die Like Heroes
She’s starting fires in fifty states
a kind of love that I can’t escape
it’s not the time but it’s getting closer
our backs are arched up against the ropes
what’s the future if nobody knows
I want to follow you as far as it goes
I know there’s risks but I’ll take my chances
I’d forgotten how sweet romance is

We Love Like Violence, With Guns
We Love Like Violence, with Violence, Violence, Violence

knock down drag out kicked out the habit
gotta get back down to what’s at the heart of it
knock down drag out kicked out the habit
When we Die, We Die Like Heroes

She was raised to revolt
She knows the war chants note for note
I’m a man of my mistakes
sentenced here to clean my plate

knock down drag out kicked out the habit
gotta get back down to what’s at the heart of it
knock down drag out kicked out the habit
when we Die, We Die Like Heroes

We Love Like Violence, With Guns
We Love Like Violence, with Violence, Violence, Violence

when we Die, We Die Like Heroes [We love like violence, with guns]
when we Die, We Die Like Heroes [We love like violence, with guns]
when we Die, We Die Like Heroes [We love like violence, with guns]
when we Die
Track Name: Paper Pegasus
goodbye Paper Pegasus
who's gonna cry for you
who's gonna fix your wings
when the fantasy is through

so long Paper Pegasus
Who's gonna cry over you

goodbye Paper Pegasus
who's gonna cry for you
who's gonna fix your wings
When the fantasy is through
so long Paper Pegasus
who's gonna cry over you
who's gonna hold you close
when all your days are through

goodbye Paper Pegasus
who's gonna cry for you
who's gonna fix your wings
When the fantasy is through
so long Paper Pegasus
who's gonna cry over you
who's gonna hold you close
when all your days are through
Track Name: Fool's Crown
I woke up this morning, what did I see
another Fool staring back at me
been down this way for far too long
I sing my song and now I'm gone, So long

I don’t remember, do you recall
who’s been a fool of alcohol
I’ve gone astray and I’ve been wrong
I’ve been the fool and now I’m gone, so long

it all comes crashing down
there sits the king without his crown
and it all comes crashing down
there sits the queen without her crown

diesel dust and the wrath of gods
we are a tiny speck in a mysterious fog
we are the known for while knowing less
we are the hubris of our own success

it all comes crashing down
there sits the king without his crown
and it all comes and it all comes crashing down
there sits the queen without her crown
when it all comes crashing down
who’ll be the fool behest of the crown
Track Name: Desert Song
runnin’ on empty
runnin’ scared
evil billows through the streets
wind’s blowin’ through my hair
ain’t no sense of danger
ain’t no will to die
ain't the hairs standin’ on the back of my neck
or shivers runnin’ down my spine

spiderweb windshield
one good eye
no rear mirrors, no looking back
and we’re changing names on the fly
wrong side of the highway
blood on the grill
ransom in the trunk still screamin’ for help
while the white lines make me want to kill, kill, kill

chasing love
losing money
extradited from my country
chaos reigns
ain’t it funny
always buying what we’re sold
life is short
the sentence long
feels all right when you're doing all wrong
so just sit back and watch the world
implode

chasing love
losing money
extradited from my country
chaos reigns
ain’t it funny
always buying what we’re sold
life is short
the sentence long
feels all right when you're doing all wrong
so just sit back and watch the world
implode
