REBELS AND SAINTS 

Down every road through the scars through the cold
We got everything we need to get by
All we break all we plan all it takes to understand
We are brothers hand in hand win or lose
At the edge of a blade we are the lonely ones
Faithful to the words we live painted on city walls
This is for the ones that always got our backs
To better days ahead never looking back
And the songs we sing to get by
All the ones we love below and above
The rebels and the saints
The palace and the slums
Just another chance at a perfect day
Down every road past the past the point of no return
We grow crazy with the weight of the world
Now if the asylums in control then the inmates run the show
I will spend my days tearing down these walls
At the edge of a world
That never wanted us to be
I wanna leave something good behind
When you remember me
Just another chance for you and me
Down every road through the scars through the cold
we got everything we need to withstand
At the edge of a chance of a perfect day just another chance for you and me
At the edge of the world that never wanted us wanna leave something good behind
At the edge of a world that never wanted us
Will you remember me?


DAGGERS

Gloria don't ask me when I'm coming home
I'm workin it out
Where the devils of my country roam
On the backs of a billion strong
Disconnected by a void
With a tendency to explode
Cover me with my enemy no more
Between the lines of desperate times
Where good men try and good men fade away
Gloria don't ask me when I'm comin home
Don't leave your light on
Don't wait for me here anymore
It's a general strike between the left and right
Between the masters hand and the appetite
Between the rich and the poor that don't care anymore
Between you and me and our dirty war
Bury me with all hell to pay no more
I've suffocated on freedom and I don't need your civil war
Like a man without a home
I got only land to roam
My desolation is my country now
My reckoning is the hell I own
Don't wait up for me no more
In the space of broken dreams
You are the serpent I am the fire
In the mourning of my heart
You devour all of me

ULYSSES

I got trouble on my mind
And it follows me to the place where you reside
If there's breath in my lungs and I still got legs then there'll be these dues to pay
Just when I'm all paid up baby ain't my place to stay around here
I don't mean to bring you down
If I keep it in check say nothing I'll regret can I follow you around
Never wanna be a vampire for your time
With you twisting in the breeze waiting for a chance to break free
To cut the line
If you ask me we ain't got much time
So excuse the mess
It's just pictures in my mind
I need to show you
I need to show you
So you understand
Will you stay
And breathe the fire
Gunna burn this fucking place straight to the ground
There's nothing good inside
How many roads must we take till we know
We had everything we needed from the start
I can tell you it won't be an easy ride
Trouble anywhere that you can hide
Pictures in my mind
I don't wanna be another taking all I can
Just waiting here for some kind of place to make our stand
Will you stay and brave the fire
Gunna burn this whole fucking place alive
When everything here is made to burn
And we set free all we didn't earn
Will know who I am


UNDER THE WESTERN SKY

There's a wretched man I know who walks along a lonely road
He begs the world to see
The man he wants to be
He comes from dirt and he scrapes the sky
Like Jesus Christ like suicide
With panic in his voice you can hear him whisper
Give up all your ghosts
And the hurt you know
In regalia and armor we all hide
There's a lonely girl I know
Undressing just to make the show
No sign of beauty left to fade
Phantoms of the digital Christ on parade
Somethin in the drugs
Like nothing in your eyes
Like heaven up above
Like missiles in the sky
Suffer here no more
Drown out the heartache
Give up all your ghosts
And all the hurt you know
In regalia and armor we all hide
Cause anything that's not growing here is murder
There's an inferno in your eyes
That gives it all away when you pretend that you don't care
And now I'll be sympathetic to the end
I'm just like you I'm just pretending
That everything's alright

MONUMENTS

Waiting
With the spirits of a lie
I told my heartache
That I know that you are gone
Listen
And I promise I will stand before you
Unbroken
Cuz I know you just begun
This is not the place where things come to die
You once told me
As you were just passin by
We started out with 25 and lost everyone we knew
Some lost their minds
Some never made it through
That little bit of sadness in your eyes
Reminds me that I'll never be alone again
Like fallen angels that would never rise above
We are the ghosts of everything we love
My broken heart fell from the lonely red sky
And landed deep beneath the sea
The captain and the pain
Will guide his ship in vein
Through the monuments and valleys deep below
Hold fast now my dear old friend
We go around place again forever
Round and round we pass on through reckless and devouring forever
This is not a place to die

WHITE GIRLS

Everybody gather round the shows about to start
We've gathered all your friends and enemies
There's a madman at the door
And he swears you ordered more
Ammunition to your hotel balcony
Everybody got a way to get it on
Everybody got a way to die
The frequency is a cult of armageddon the drugs have just begun to
Take their hold on you
Here where the sun goes down
In Californ-eye-aye
The boys of summer play
The white girls cross themselves before they give it all away
We are gathered here to celebrate the end of days
The information you've received is sponsored by
The KKK and the CIA
This digital insurrection got a hold on you
Here where the sun goes down
In Californ-eye-aye
The boys of summer play
Under clouds of resurrection
On a chemical new day
Welcome to the undertow
We all gotta price to pay
Leave your keys at the door
It's time to come and play
Everybody gather round now the shows about to start
We've gathered here today
To watch all hell break loose

DEMONS

You build my churches with the bones of skeletons and fire
You're a modern day catastrophe
Weaponized in style
Bury this
In the machinery of time
All the nations that I burn cry out in streets of fire
Calibrated visions in my mind
Here we rise
We fall
In grey we fade away
Nothing burns like freedom when we got nothing to say
And do you know who are
Show me something more than scars
In ceremonies of all this wasted time
We are nothing more than
Spirits in decline
Resurrected deities are nailed to your floor
Like the skin of your profession I am an amputee of war
My heart and mind won't reconcile these distances of time
At the bottom of the sea
Everything I own takes me farther from my home
The ocean at my feet wants me to drown
My Gods are all around me
Just don't let em think I know
And I'm appetite like the heroin of love
Cross sections of the human mind
Fortify the beats within
There's no more room left underground
You can't afford the cage you're in
Demons of Los Angeles

HAMMER DOWN

I don't want the world you bled for me
Standing at the edge of reality
I can see beyond these eyes
That something here just isn't right
Support a war and the walls that keep you in
Take a side and don't let your brother in
Intimidate the threat you can't deny is something in your heart
We are not invisible to the suffering we know
They lied
About the sky and moon
They ride together to our doom
When we get it right
For one moment then it's gone
Might be enough to carry us and together we'll drag on and on
Medicate then slowly subjugate
Arm the hate and film it for the race
Marching out to be the face
Of a nation lost in its disgrace
I don't want the world you bled for me standing at the edge of reality
I can see beyond these eyes
If you cross me twice there's gunna be a fight
I sleep with one eye open as America she sings to me
We dream like desperados
Sleeping on our empty graves
Only to find we lost ourselves
In the memory of better days
One would never take us
One would put us underground
The other wept like flowers
Blooming on your grave

DISAPPEARING CITY

Electro-magnetic pulse and the glory of the darkness in your eyes
Tonight
The empire in shadow and disorder wait in silence without light
And time
And I here stand with you forever blue
We don't need their light to find the way we gotta go
We made our way through darker days
Like movements in a world without eyes
The streets are dark and history is lost
May the silence remind you of the cost
In witness the reckoning has washed the light away
Then you smile
And say
And here I stand with you forever blue
We don't need their light to find the way we gotta go
As we make our way
We lose our way
We been running blind
Like strangers passing in the night
I don't wanna go it all alone
Do I dare to walk with you
Do we dare to take what we cannot own
Never far away but distant
I don't wanna see this ending tonight
This empire will scream

POLITICS OF SLEEP

I awake
To the dance apparitions trapped inside my heart again
Acquiescence
Of this desire bleeding through
And I don't know what to do
Something's still missing through the hours
Of this inertia
And you climb the highest peak
You smoke with souls beneath the street sleepless and alive
You paraded like you had something to show
It's gravity that keeps you down as you sleep with satellites
In the realm of light there is no time
In your disease there is no crime
Just smoke and ashes and everything we burn
The romance of the way we were
The savior the murderer
Incantations of our love divine
It's suicide in increments of time
In our memory
Satellites at the edge of the sky will guide you home tonight


DIAMONDS AND GOLD

I am the shadow of everything you know
I come to you in distant whispers when you are not alone
I am a single ray of light to pierce the darkness I shine so hopelessly in you
We go down, down
With diamonds and gold
Into the ground
The greatest story ever told
About the love we make
The blood we take
In your eyes a baffled God could no right
I walk beside you and you know me in your mind
While you incinerate everything that you leave behind
I'm what you stand to lose
You've paid for me
I am the freedom you are running from
Our contradictions are the only way we know who we are
We are the shadow of everything we know
We are the God of disorder
I walk beside you as you know me in your mind
And in your eyes I am nothing

STRANGE NOTES

Our heroes are insane 
Stranger to the times 
Nothing here is ever what it seems 
Close your pretty eyes 
Wipe away that grin
The battle for your soul will soon ignite 
And we're gunna blast this shit all night 
Gimme gimme gimme gimme more
We gunna pick our shit up off the floor 
And set these old ways of ours to rest 
Breath in breath out hold it in 
There's more to this than we'll ever win 
The answers in the wind we are devout 
To every drop of blood that we bleed out 
Here where the names are everything we own 
I can do without 
I'd rather die a broken man 
At the place I took a stand 
I'd rather go insane fighting for this love 
If all is tragedy then what will come will be 
We are strangers no more 
We write confessions on the walls 
There's more to this than we'll ever win 
We speak in lies in secret protocols 
Breathe in breathe out hold it in 
Show me where the hell you been 
Cuz I'd really like to know 
Here the names are all the same
And all we ever got is blame 
Show me show me 
I don't wanna die knowing what I left behind
Wasn't something worth the stand 
Stranger are the times 
As we get left behind 
We know nothing here 
Is what it seems


BLOODY KNUCKLES

This phalanx that we are with hearts up on our shields
We are holding
But not for long
One by one we fall only here to rise again
In fields of armor we remain
Our bodies twisted by the words we can't explain
Bloody knuckles stain the walls and poison fills my lungs
As the beauty of your voice cuts me down
And though we weave in motion through the passing of our days
We are devotion
We are the pain
We are beauty
That lost its way
Broken hearts we sing along to
The hymns of our devotion
We gave it all and we lost our minds
We don't need to be forgiven
It's like falling on our swords
Just for taking a stand
It's the journey of love
That we'll never understand
Beauty in our union like a fire in the void
Serenading the hopeless like passing of days
Through it all we knew we'd stand like the brave
No beginning
No end
With Like names old as days
Without solitude
Without thought
Without feeling
With bloody knives
And razor blades
We die for our devotion
We gave it all
We lost our minds
We don't need to be forgiven
Forgiven you never asked to be alive
Forgiven for all the hell that you survived
Forgiven
