Track Name: Cuts
These ribs a cage for lonely heart beasts
Empty on display I parade around all the pieces lost
What these hands can't touch have made them useless to me
I've made friends with bricks who never bleed
In here it's always midnight
Where winter never leaves
I'm digging for a future where all my scars are seen
I'll cut this weight from my chest And move on a bit slower
Alone with the ghosts that all know me by name I'll cut away the weak and become more like these bricks
These hands can't touch so I'll make them into fists
These ribs cage lonely heart beats
There's no recognizing me now
I'm just heart attacks and teeth
These ribs a lonely cage
And I'd love to love something
But you see i got this pain
And even though I cut out my tongue
I can still taste her name
The lonely beast I have cut from it's cage
Today I float, a ghost forever
Brick wrist, red rage
Today I weighed myself with out my heart And though I was lighter I felt no relief
(Tonight I'll find the rest I need in the darkness of my own eyes)
Track Name: Last Horse
There's no forever for beasts like us In times like these When hides are bought not earned
(These scars that we wear are scars that WE'VE earned)
I will not leave my land without a fight
I will not face my death behind closed eyes
Now we wear the miles in our eyes
Carrying us against the tide
With the years on our backs
Make NO mistake we're not running FROM our lives
We're running FOR our lives, towards our lives
Is this what we're to expect? I can't believe we're all that's left
So, here's to no regrets!
Here's to blood well spent!
Here's to not trying it's either DO or you're dying
Here's to head on collisions and meeting them first I'll catch my death in my chest
We'll wrap the skies in our lightning and still our hooves will thunder on
I'll catch my death in my chest
And I'll live this all with no regrets
And when the time comes we'll know it was due
And I'll take some comfort in this truth
Track Name: The Weight
She left pieces of herself everywhere
Said she wanted it this way
She said she wanted it this way
So no one would forget her if they had a piece all their own
A piece they could keep
And she had so many to lose
Yeah, we all got so much to lose
We're all just pieces lost
We're all just bullet holes
I haven't slept since I met her
Haven't slept in years
Up at night recovering the pieces she's lost trying to make her whole again
Because all that's left is shadows and bones slipping through my hands
I haven't slept since I met you
Perhaps you wanted it this way
Maybe I wanted it this way
So that I could not forget you
Because you never stay
It had to be this way so I'd never forget you
As transparent as her teeth in the smile not for me and I'll take whatever is left
I will take whatever's left
Track Name: Drag
There were too many big words from tough mouths with big teeth but no spines
And I've got big teeth, bigger, biggest and sharp tongue to talk shit with
And fists so big they drag behind me But who's got the heart? who's got the heart to back all this up?
(yeah, it's real quiet now)
This time I'll leave it up to me to separate the weak
All this is mine.
What's in my chest has always been mine anyway
And sometimes this heart can pull both ways and I'm not sure what to choose
But the choice is mine all of this mine
So let's talk about heart and right and wrong and the difference between giving up and giving in
Showing real strength when it's all laid out

So I'll show you my teeth if that's what you need but my chest holds the key
So keep your mouth shut and your hands up while I drag this heart through all the mud you can sling because this heart is all I have
It's all I need (and I'll cut it out myself before I'm forced to compromise)
