Track Name: Conspiracy Theory
I wanna take you, don’t wanna come and go
‘Cause you’re the finest girl that’s ever brought me home
But I think that there’s someone watching me
I see them creeping in the shadow of our neighbor’s trees
And if we run I think it ends all the same
And no I’m sorry but I don’t know how to fuckin’ explain
We pull the weight but they pull all the strings
To keep us living in our dead-end, broken, dying dreams

So would you ride with me, would you die with me?
Would you open up your sunken eyes with me?
Will you fight your fears and face another year?
Or will you play the kind of music that they want to hear?

You wanna take me, you wanna leave this place
I wanna panic when I see the look that’s on your face
Their agents are watching every step
Every shiver, every mutter, every ragged breath
The trap is sprung, now we’re caught in the dark
We touch the sky and the ground begins to tear us apart
Never crashed a car before tonight, but I’m ready now
Lying in the ditch in the smoke and broken glass
If this night is my moment, please don’t let it pass

So would you ride with me, would you die with me?
Would you open up your sunken eyes with me?
Will you fight your fears and face another year?
Or will you play the kind of music that they want to hear?
Will you fade away with the break of day?
Will you never say the things you thought you needed to say?
Cuz I’m taking flight in the dead of the night
And even though I sound crazy, girl, you know I’m right

When will it stop, where will we be?
I’m taking the jump, I’m counting to three
There’s no stopping now, I won’t go alone
I won’t leave you here in this world of stone

So will they kill your kind, erase your family line?
Are you here without a purpose, are you ready to die?
Under chemical skies the blood will paint our eyes
Look at the world before they burn it, are you really surprised?
Are you really surprised?
Are you really surprised?
Track Name: The War Song
Tonight, all night
We run, we fight
Six guns, one fear
Rattled heart, death is near

Bloody water, broken streets
Neither side will admit defeat
Our time is up, now the end is here
Sadist hearts pray on our fear

Bombs tear through London skies
An agony raining from the smoking heavens
Please, I need to know I’m not alone
They steal our hope, rape our homes

Disowned, dethroned
Cast down, outgrown
Your time, your fate
You’ll learn too late

Bloody water, broken streets
Neither side will admit defeat
Our time is up, now the end is near
Sadist hearts pray on our fear

Bombs tear through the New York skies
An agony raining from the smoking heavens
Please, I need to know I’m not alone
They steal our hope, rape our homes
These demons

Mortars tear flesh away (Our souls are fading to gray)
Everyone’s caught in the fray (Cold stares and nothing to say)
I saw you running away; I am the bringer of fate

A far cry from rage
I sleep ‘neath the concrete ocean’s waves
Your melody is more than strong enough
You’ve called my bluff; there’s nothing to say
There’s nothing to say

Bombs tear through the Tokyo skies
An agony raining from the smoking heavens
Please, I need to know I’m not alone
They steal our hope, rape our home
These demons

Mortars tear flesh away (Our souls are fading to gray)
Everyone’s caught in the fray (Cold stares and nothing to say)
I saw you running away; I am the bringer of fate
Track Name: Heist (The Blood Brothers)
Just think if we could find a way
(To claw our way out from the dark)
Then we could live our lives the way they were before
I know there’s nothing left to say
(What did we ever say before?)
This lack of oxygen has stopped my heart

We went in for a brighter dawn (For a brighter dawn)
We drove south under scars of breaking fire (Breaking fire)
And if you think it’s over then you will never be the same
And will you never ask me if everything will be okay?

The blood that stains our greedy hands
(We’ll never wash it all away)
We made it out alive and still you ask for more
Will you leave me to my guilt?
Or are you gonna bring it my way?
Aim between my eyes

We went in for a brighter dawn (For a brighter dawn)
We drove south under scars of breaking fire (Breaking fire)
The ones you murder trying will always be the ones to pay
I should have stayed to face my fate, now I’m just a pawn inside your game

Oh brother, your voice is louder
And you don’t sound the same as when we were young
Oh brother, I can’t scream louder
And it don’t matter anyway
Just kill the pain away

We drove south to the station outside town (Station outside town)
We stepped out, four pistols shining in the sun (Shining in the sun)
Now I would have just walked away but you needed to end it here
Two friends who wrote the master plan, now enemies seduced by fear
Track Name: A Hurricane in Black & White
You picked me up when I was down
I just kept falling to the ground
You let me in when I was dark and I had nothing to do
But then you sent me to my grave
You told me not to misbehave
And there I turned into a monster

I am so empty, broken down and hollow
But I am not your scapegoat

‘Cause I’m a hurricane in black and white
And I crush everything left in sight now
The gales are burning static tonight
The maelstrom sets our lives alight

I’m out here in the blackest night
Waiting breathless out of sight
For the cold to catch me without any place to stay
You were the one who made me well
And took me out of my living hell
You made me sane when I was haunted

I will be waiting, for another chance to
Say the things I should have said

‘Cause I’m a hurricane in black and white
And I crush everything left in sight now
The gales are burning static tonight
The maelstrom sets our lives alight

Yeah we’re left here with no direction, left to face the night
‘Cause the world around us is just a hurricane dressed in black and white
Let me free, let me out; this isn’t right
Because the world around us is just a hurricane dressed in black and white

‘Cause I’m a hurricane in black and white
And I crush everything left in sight now
The gales are burning static tonight
The maelstrom sets our lives alight
Go!
Track Name: Nine Ball
She sings the songs that no one thinks about
She chases ghosts without a single doubt
And in her heart she knows the dream is near
The ending will soon be here
She believes that a day will come
When the phantom can no longer run
And through her eyes of the nine she sees
Her heart will leave and set her free

I sang her my life that morning; I stopped at thirteen
She asked me who wrote this story, I guess it was me
From her lips I drew my glory, the love that I took with me
The nine-ball will send its warning until the day she dreams

On the hilltop she waited for dawn
Until the traces of starlight were gone
And in the silence the sky would part
It’s leading through the very start
In my dreams I have seen her face
Seen the eyes of the one I have chased
But now she is here in my arms
And she will never come to harm, no she won’t, no

I sang her my life that morning; I stopped at thirteen
She asked me who wrote this story, I guess it was me
From her lips I drew my glory, the love that I took with me
The nine-ball will send its warning until the day she dreams

And at the end of our winding road
When hope dies out and the night is cold
It’s no surprise I’ve found you here
The wind still carries your bitter tears
I know you want to live again
Even though you’re a slave to my dark intent
And when you run I’ll find you, dear
The way to the end is finally clear

One, Two, Three, Go
