Track Name: Intro
I am a match just waiting to be lit
I am a room filled with darkness
You are the light
The flicker of the switch
You're choosing us from the pile of the matches
Track Name: Matches
I am a match just waiting to be lit
I am a room filled with darkness
You are the light
The flicker of the switch
You're choosing us from the pile of the matches

ooo

I am a match just waiting to be lit
I am a room filled with darkness
You are the light
The flicker of the switch
You're choosing us from the pile of the matches

Give us the words to send a message that they need
Lead them to light pump some blood & move some feet
Kick out the soap boxes from underneath their feet
& as the days go on this match repeats

ooo

I am a match just waiting to be lit
I am a room filled with darkness
You are the light
The flicker of the switch
You're choosing us from the pile of the matches

You're choosing us from the pile of the matches

Oh
Track Name: Fake
Here comes Fall
Autumn I outta be in class
Mama told me put that guitar down son its past

We've come to a new age the millenium
Where people don't sing people don't play people don't stay people don't age and people don't ache
Everything is Fake

Six feet tall
Grown about to be a man
All my women I can count on one hand
Mama told me if I break it better fix it back and stay together

We've come to a new age the millenium
Where people don't sing people don't play people don't stay people don't age and people don't ache
Everything is Fake
Track Name: Bawl
I can't decide which way is wrong
Both keep leading me on so I sing myself to sleep
Only one path left
My decision tonight but I know its not right
So I tease myself for peace

Bawl

Doing everything right
At least whats plain to the sight
But the weight towers high
& I give from underneath

Only to find I'm simply mirroring them
Pull my roots from the stem
If this is me I don't wanna be me

Bawl

Oh you wanted all these things for me
& I had nothing to give in return

Bawl
Track Name: Silly Sam
Listen listen to what they are trying to say
Hear them they are just breeding & feeding their way
See them look & envision your self in their place
Souls are bleeding because we beat them again & again
& we say that we want it all to change
But we won't have it any other way

We say that we want it all to change
But we won't have it any other way
If we listen to what they had to say
We could heal us we're a dying species

We say that we want it all to change
But we won't have it any other way
If we listen to what they had to say
We could heal us we're a dying species

Listen listen to the little voice in your head
Hear it it's weaning and feening to spit out the bad
Oh release it piss it and spit it seat it out your glands
They'll believe it when you can show them that you give a damn

& we say that we want it all to change
But we won't have it any other way

We say that we want it all to change
But we won't have it any other way
If we listen to what they had to say
We could heal us we're a dying species

We say that we want it all to change
But we won't have it any other way
If we listen to what they had to say
We could heal us we're a dying species

Oh oh oh ooo oh oh
Oh oh oh ooo oh oh
Oh oh oh ooo oh oh
Oh oh oh ooo oh oh

We say that we want it all to change
But we won't have it any other way
If we listen to what they had to say
We could heal us we're a dying species

We say that we want it all to change
But we won't have it any other way
If we listen to what they had to say
We could heal us we're a dying species
Track Name: Before the Suns
Whoo oo oo ooo oo who oo who oo Whoo oo oo

Open my eyes on the floor never thought I'd be here today
Hunting shoes from the footprints left on my face
How long have I been crawling this way
to my feet watch me stumble I'm not humble but I'm picking up pace
& the lies just add a little more taste
My time is here but the mud keeps trudging me in place

& They said we're not gonna make it
But we're well on our way & they're behind our backs
& They said we couldn't be famous
But were well on our way & we're not turning back

Unsealing my lips before the suns
I shout and scare the devil away
To feed this seed I need just a trickle of faith
Stepping over sleeping sisters
Hoping I'm not living this way

Skipping stone with a vision of collision
With the primes of our days
Running parallel to giants that are making our shade
Our shade before the suns

& They said we're not gonna make it
But we're well on our way & they're behind our backs
& They said we couldn't be famous
but were well on our way & we're not turning back

We are wanted for the suns for the suns
We are one before the suns for the suns
We are all want it for the suns for the suns
We all won before the suns for the suns

We are wanted for the suns for the suns
We are one before the suns for the suns
We are all want it for the suns for the suns
We all won before the suns for the suns

Hey!

& They said we're not gonna make it
But we're well on our way & they're behind our backs
& They said we couldn't be famous
But were well on our way & we're not turning back
