Track Name: Window
WINDOW
I stand at my window
watch the world pass me by
Wringing hands, looking down
wondering if I should try
But I sit biding my time
Watch the clock, waiting in time
...every day

When I was a kid
I thought that I could walk through walls
On the bus, or on my bike
Miles and miles on foot I'd hike
I'd count my blisters with pride
But now, the cage walls come down
In the shadows, dangers lurk
Where did my freedom go, my naivete?
What good has wisdom brought me?

To jump at shadows...Or stare them down?
I look into the shadows
and the shadows look right back
We look into each other's eyes
Sometimes I'm paralyzed,
my eyes are open wide
to see things I'd never want to see

What good has this done me?
Track Name: Culture War
CULTURE WAR
We all ignored those words
for just a little too long
The sticks are in a bundle
and all we know is wrong
Now it's too late to apologize
and get to bed because it's time
Can't put it back in the bottle
Because we smashed that bottle up

On the dinner table,
I see the fragments of civil society
in the turkey and the cake
We can keep on drinking
ourselves into a culture war if we like
and I won't hold my tongue this time

Just because you're meaner
and your voices are louder
Doesn't mean you've got the right
to hurt anyone
who doesn't think like you

In the pumpkin pie,
I taste the shards of civil society
Cut my gums and break my teeth
Well, It's too late now to apologize
and get to bed because it's time
Though I never wanted this culture war

There will always be a culture war
Track Name: Dead Parts
DEAD PARTS
Pictures are grey
burned and decayed
memories will fade

I saw you there
standing right there
won't walk away
memories will fade

After that day
that time and that space
never be the same

Well, I'm always looking
to find a place that's safe
but I wish I didn't have to
I've got to find a place to breathe
To be ok...leave the past far away

And the world tomorrow
like the world today
will be full of monsters who often get their way

I will not be broken
I will not be bound
I will not be told
That I shouldn't make a sound

But now I think it's better
to choose your own family
than wait for the will to die
with the one you've got

True, what doesn't kill you
just makes the pain hurt less
But don't forget yourself
even the dead parts

Still alive, with all the scars
and all the dead parts
Track Name: Shaky Castles
SHAKY CASTLES
Well the bricks will be hard enough
where the targets are far too easy

Are you home?
In your shaky castle?
Where the gates climb high
but we climb higher still

You're not the paranoid type
You don't believe that we can find you
...but we will

Are you at work?
In your lofty penthouse?
What you don't know
is you are on a cliff

This won't subside
Can you build walls high enough?
Are your walls strong enough?
Perceptions of security
...you won't be safe

You made the whole world
into the third world
You are not faceless now
we know your names

You're all just animals
Soft, furless animals like we

...but we are many
