Gudda

Giving someone something to change

Should probably wait until you're sober

Even if they're saying the same thing to you

Wait until you're sober

You don't have to travel the world

To know it's cold in Minnesota

Remember how it feels at the start

It's just the same as when it's over

After all the damage is done

And all the tension here is broken

Even if they close up the wound

It's still gonna sting as if it's open

Die Young

Don't touch

Keep your motherfucking hands off

My black box

Pill pop

Giving every little dream up

It's your life

 

Well all my heroes

Broke their mirrors

So shall I

They live fast

Die young

Don't cry

Numb yourself until the sunrise

It's your life

Locked up

Oh, my prison is a tour bus

Killing time

 

Well all my heroes

Broke their mirrors

So shall I

They live fast

Die young

Dangerous Indeed

She's been known to leave a voicemail

On eggshells, careful as can be

He's been known to lose his temper

When he's hammered, snaps so easily

But she sees him in her own light

He's a white knight

She's in danger

He's dangerous indeed

She's a goddess in her own right, lonely

He's a car with the lights off, tearing through the dark

They're less now than the sum of their parts

He don't mean everything he says

She can smell an apology on his breath

And even if he wanted to

He's doing what he's gotta do

She sees him in her own light

When he doesn't do right, she's scared

Scared to run away

One day he'll take it too far

And as good as you are, you knew

He's dangerous indeed

Seen enough to know the signs here

The way she hides tears, the bruises on her skin

Just look me in the eye dear,

And feed my ears the lies you tell your friends

But she sees him in her own light

He's a white knight

She's in danger

He's dangerous indeed

She's a goddess in her of right, lonely

She's a fish in the water, swimming with a shark

He's eaten every one of their hearts

He don't mean everything he says

She can smell an apology on his breath

And even if he wanted to

He's doing what he's gotta do

She sees him in her own light

When he doesn't do right, she's scared

Scared to run away

One day he'll take it too far

And as good as you are, you knew

He's dangerous indeed

The Howl

Got a little lean from the heartbreak

Let's shake this up, keep straight dodging us

A catalyst for blowing up

The key to making nothing feel like something

Get it, got it, good, now move on

There's time enough for everyone

Keep all that hate coming my way

Straight to the mouth of the wolf

You get the howl

Take all that shit to the highway

No one can tell you the truth

You get the howl

Crying like a child

And howling like a wolf

You came up from the inside and tore it all apart

For fun, I know, wish you could have said so

It's tough to be original

Maybe had a little love in it at the start

But then, I came, and through it out the window

You said it like we'll never know

Keep all that hate coming my way

Straight to the mouth of the wolf

You get the howl

Take all that shit to the highway

No one can tell you the truth

You get the howl

Crying like a child

And howling like a wolf

Marching Off to War

Eating off their plates

To feed the things that you hate

Crawling in your skin

The lines they painted you in

Marching off to war today

Turned you into bone

To fight and carried you home

Servants to the royals

Your blood forsaken for oil

Marching off to war today

India

India

The center of the new round world

A journey only taken by the brave

Christopher

Discoverer of wealth untold

Echoes of the news float back from Spain

All this gold will soon be mine to take

Those savages must be bold

They're trying to to keep me from my gold

I think not this time

God damn, this is the promised land

This is the promised land

They'll pry it from my cold dead hands

Indians

Reject the hand of the king

A fever grips them for their heresy

Colonies

Our way of planting the seed

God is what these wild natives need

God forgive the conqueror in me

Those savages must be bold

They're trying to to keep me from my gold

I think not this time

God damn, this is the promised land

This is the promised land

They'll pry it from my cold dead hands

Nina

We're going back to the sea

For a while, we'll let these people be

Governors

However long we're apart

The colonies are always in my heart

I'll bring back a thousand ships to start

Son of Virtue

Your hair does look lovely

Your skin looks soft

You're here now, like you used to be

An eternity ago

And before you leave, I think you should know that

These words are gonna get me in trouble

But you can't keep haunting me no more

You should know what you borrowed

Now it's time to give me back my soul

No I ain't gonna touch you

No I'm not in love with you no more

I don't eat with the vultures

You can try to shake me to my core

But I never claimed to be the son of virtue

And I'm innocent of anything that hurts you

If blame was a mountain

I'd climb to the top

I'm no son of virtue anymore

You're tempting, so desperate

Your words feel so hollow

You hear that? Bouncing off the wall

Making no impact at all

I'm sick and tired of the shit you talk

These words are gonna get me in trouble

But you can't keep haunting me no more

You should know what you borrowed

Now it's time to give me back my soul

No I ain't gonna touch you

No I'm not in love with you no more

I don't eat with the vultures

You can try to shake me to my core

But I never claimed to be the son of virtue

And I'm innocent of anything that hurts you

If blame was a mountain

I'd climb to the top

I'm no son of virtue anymore

After the Fall

Well someday I'll set out on my own

I'll wean from the bottle and leave all my sorrows at home

And one day I, well I will be old

I'll look back on these days and be glad for the stories I told

No I won't hold back at all

If you'll be here after the fall

Well all these nights get out of control

And nobody's yelling can stop me when I'm on a roll

I won't forget, what you live with you leave

And the company you keep is a part of the air that you breathe

No I won't hold back at all

If you'll be here after the fall

It's All Over Now

We can feel a lot in just a short amount of days

But only if we change

Only if we change

We can see the coast enough to know it's all the same

It's all just sand and waves

All just sand and waves

Love can find you, redesign you

Rob you blind, you'll see

That it's not me

It's not me

You say to let it go

To go for eternity

It's all over now

The end of what we used to be

It took the two of us

To learn how to part the sea

It's all over now

The water's crashing over me

There used to be a time when I could read what's in your head

It's all you ever said

All you ever said

Now I feel alone when I've been sleeping in your bed

We're hanging by a thread

Hanging by a thread

All these stumbles, breaks, and crumbles

Wear you down, you'll see

That it's not me

It's not me

You say to let it go

To go for eternity

It's all over now

The end of what we used to be

It took the two of us

To learn how to part the sea

It's all over now

The water's crashing over me

Slow Down

Keep up, or slow down

If you stop, we drown

It's tough to know how

You use us, I know now

Cool off, calm down

Fall in, sell out

And go, if you have to

When you do, it's on you

It's on you

You can say it's okay

I can't work for no pay

Keep the money we made

Keep the money we made

Hope it makes you fill up

All the things you dream of

If you want it so much

If I leave then so what

I don't need your plans to follow my dreams

Cause nowadays they write themselves

You don't need me here to stroke your ego

You seem to do that fine yourself

You wanted the power

You got it, so now what?

Treat all the people

You call friends as equals

You can say it's okay

I can't work for no pay

Keep the money we made

Keep the money we made

Hope it makes you fill up

All the things you dream of

If you want it so much

If I leave then so what

I don't need your plans to follow my dreams

Cause nowadays they write themselves

You don't need me here to stroke your ego

You seem to do that fine yourself

Isotope

Try to heed the warning signs

It's a slippery slope

Got her neutrons out of line

She's an isotope

Fold 'em, she's gonna win

She's holding you ransom

Everything she says

Is breaking you down some

Hold on if you can

She's ready to blow

All the people all the time

Tried to tell you so

You're the victim, she's the crime

Guess you missed that boat

Now she's got you good

She's holding you in tight

You can't always win

By being the good guy

Hold on if you can

She's ready to blow

You can keep the flowers, you can keep the vase

I'll let you go, I'll let you go

You can keep the books and you can keep the case

I'll let you go, I'll let you go

You can keep the car and you can keep the place

I'll let you go, I'll let you go

You can keep your whole life filling up with hate

I'll let you go, I'll let you

Try to heed the warning signs

It's a slippery slope

Carbon neutrons out of line

She's an isotope

Your unholy mess is waiting in my home

All this common sense, surrendered to my soul

Hold on if you can

She's ready to blow

Don't do this, no promises

Don't do it, no promises

Do this, no promises

Don't do it

Youth & Truth

Oh, foolish is the man who waits for love

Oh, and foolish is his bride

Oh, foolish are the kids that they bring up

Oh, to relive their foolish lives

We become our father's words

And open up a franchise

Peddling the thoughts we heard

As promises of perfect bloodlines

It's an education 

The economy of swiping right

Covering our faces up

And finding love with pickup lines

Your only shot at love

Is operational

So get your profile up

And take what you've been dreaming of

It's only inside

You've got your feelings right

You become a mockingbird

Parroting the love lines

Giving every girl your word that

She's your perfect ray of sunshine

It's a little game now

Casting messages as fishing rods

Find someone to take the vow

And live like you're suburban gods

Your only shot at love

Is operational

So get your profile up

And take what you've been dreaming of

It's only inside

You've got your feelings right
