Track Name: Introduction
once and tired
once and tired
we grow tired forever
oh you go
oh you go
oh you know me better
say you, say you won’t
say you, say you won’t
once and tired
once and tired
we grow tired forever
Track Name: Forget Forgive
i saw the baby alone in his bed
crawl to the lobby, to find you forget
he wants to forget, he wants to forgive

i call to rachael, “be brave where you stand!
take up your mantel, with blood on your hands!”
you want to be brave, you want to forget
you want to forgive

que la vida bella (may the beautiful life)
nos mantenga (keep us)
que la vida bella (may the beautiful life)
nos mantenga (keep us)
Track Name: No Silence
how could i, crashing through the sky
find my way back to you?
i won’t try, given that i might
lose myself somewhere when you’re gone

what would i give just to be back?
break through this barely opened gate?
close it now, before i’m tempted through!
there must be a better way

“leave your home,” they tell me
“leave it soon.”
did i hope to split right through?

“leave the west,” they tell me
“why can’t you?”
did i fail to follow through?

there’s no crying here...
there’s no laughter here...
there’s no dying here...

there’s no silence!
Track Name: Requiem for 1230 N. Burling
in the night i watched you run your fingers red
i remember what i heard your father said:

“i’m the wrong child, undesired i’ll always be
on the wrong side, have i chosen wrong for me?”

i will pray for you
i will pray for you

there’s a baseline (noise and rhymes), we make a home
throw the empire, will you try? you’d rather run.

“will you help me?” said your brother, late one night
“on the wrong side, i’ve been trying all my life!”

i will pray for you
i will pray for you

on the wrong side, lift your eyes!
you’ll always be on the wrong side,
with no lies or mouths to feed.

you’re the lone child
undesired you’ll always be
on the wrong side
undefined but always free

i will pray for you
i will pray for you
Track Name: Ogden Ave Review
i saw sparks and when you offered
felt my skin turn into dust
cracked that night
for what? you fought me.
i can’t get the story right.

started out but if you want this
tear apart and take my soul
darling, i’d be fighting for you
if i weren’t fighting off myself

slow this down, i want to stop you
tear my hair out from the root
why have love if all i offered
was less than he ever could?

i saw sparks and when you found us...

why have love if all i offered...

tear my heart out from the root?
Track Name: This Time
say you won’t for the last time
i’ve had my way for the last time
oh, Father, don’t leave me for the last time!
oh, Father, don’t leave me in the wrong time!
i was wrong this time
i was wrong this time
i was wrong this time
i was wrong this time
i was wrong this time
i was wrong this time

save me now before i go...
and i would be a prophet if i could get out my head
(and i would be a prophet if i could get out bed)
and if and if and if and if and if and if i failed
well, i am just a poor man in a gilded, golden world!
and would and would and would it be too late?
my life, my love, my rights, my wrongs,
my reeling in your face
and should and should and should it be too late
wrong steps, wrong life, wrong rights, wrong ways,
i’ve had my fill today
and if and if and if and if and if and if i failed
well, i am just a poor man in a gilded, golden world!
and would and would and would it be too late?
my life, my love, my rights, my wrongs,
my reeling in your face

i tried, i tried, i tried, i tried, i tried, i tried my best

i gave myself!
i gave myself!
i gave myself!
i gave myself!
i gave myself!
