place all of their own.

Track Name: Firefights
We are not the same

When I said we're not the same
Take a breath to stop the train, for days
Then I thought I’d make it known
Stole a heart to break a home, alone

Didn’t start the firefights, staring into headlights
We were the ones that got away
We were the one that got away

When I said you're not to blame
Stay awake to fight the rain, for days
Then I’d turn your skin to stone
Hardest road that you could roam, alone

It is the freedom to be braver
Greatest gift I ever gave her
Never asked me for a favour
I was sent to Earth to save her

Wear a coat to dry you from the rain
Keep you warm and free you from the fame
Take it off when it starts to feel the same
Stop it, stop it, don’t do that again

Leave it on cause it helps you entertain
Wave to friends and send them all away
Take a bow when it’s time to end the game
Stop it, stop it, don’t do that again
Track Name: Silhouettes
All the skin I have touched, I have never seen
Quite as soft as the palm of your hands
When the timing is right and your heart is clean
Silhouettes while we fall through the sands

I can love her now and then
For God’s sake I’m lost again

Now the time for goodbye has got us petrified
When I kiss from your head to your feet
And the warmth is a sign that I never lied
Wash your eyes ‘til the next time we meet

I can feel it ending

We will dance until the sun falls on us
Broken hearts are the consequence of lust
Taking names of the men that you still trust
Amy, I never lie, Amy, I, Amy, I

Then I build her up, so I can tear her down
Didn’t shoot that gun, those unholy sounds
Pretend now and then, haven’t heard of her
Cause she’s a know-it-all, and I’m a murderer
Track Name: Black & Blue
Packing an empty bag just to fill my thoughts
Sounds so loud it screams
Happiness is found but not sought
Tracking my way back home so that I’m not caught
Timed so well it seems
I confess its borrowed not bought

Hey come inside
We will fall just like we hide

Flying a pair of planes just to hide my kite
Black and blue from war
Firearms in day but not night
Covered by clear black skies I can see no light
Spread my wings and soar
Afraid of everyone within sight

Hey let it slide
We will fall just like we hide

Coming to my senses is like
Walking the streets so late each night
Locking the door inside my headphonehome
Screaming in my defence is like
Painting the walls with red and white
Rocking the floor inside my headphonehome
Track Name: Patient Parades
I heard from a friend when he was alive
He’d escaped through a door in the sky
And all of his thoughts were in black and white
I’d always imagined he would be the same
And that he’d have the strength to survive
Spent all of his time before death alive

Patient parades were a way of life
When a mother cried
Day your brother died
It’s only death you see
Please don’t get excited

I hadn’t forgotten what I’d said before
That I’d help him escape from the wire
With both of my hands in the line of fire
He’d never imagined he’d get out of here
Content with the ways of the world
Forgetting his friends and the pretty girls

It’s only death you see
Please don’t get excited
The truth won’t set you free
Please don’t get excited
Track Name: No More Nights
We will not end this war, been told before, mending broken bones
Two lives are not the same, no-one else to blame, I’m alone
We won’t be free again, ‘til we both pretend, that we’re here to stay
I’ve never been so scared, he’s so unprepared, for the fame

We will become the night, eyes are blinded white, when they see the sun
Standing side by side, nowhere else to hide, it’ll come undone
We will not stay alive, no we won’t survive, no more nights to fear
Then we’ll just close our hearts, stop them from the start, naked here

No I had never thought we’d ever come undone
We will feel better when, we can be one again
We will stand hand in hand and pray for that day to come
We’ll all be dead by then, we’ll all be dead again
