Track Name: Killin It
Watch it break like knives in the pavement (Oh!)

We brand and bury
The sounds that carry all the weight (Woa-ah-oh oh-oh)
Keep killin', keep killin' it (Woa-ah-oh oh-oh)
The feelin' and this love of mine

Life tonight with sell-outs and fading fakers
Walk the line and hold hands with the sides you favor
Guard your heart with rumble strip so much
That there's no road left to follow into the sun

I'm trying and failing!
Watch it break like knives in the pavement!

We brand and bury
The sounds that carry all the weight (Woa-ah-oh oh-oh)
Keep killin', keep killin' it (Woa-ah-oh oh-oh)
The feelin' and this love of mine

Climb and climb, does the view ever become the life?
No time, the bomb won't wait to be analyzed
Is it about the sound or the system?
If you're talkin' to me how can you listen? (Hey!)
Listen? (Hey!)
Listen?

Take the whole damn story in line
And what it's worth
Take every clash, battle, the guilt, and pride
And fill the verse

Now tell me do you feel it?
Do you feel it?
Do you feel it?
The rip in the wings?

Now tell me do you feel it?
Do you feel it?
Do you feel it?
The slash of the heels?
It's buried so what's left to feel?

(Woa-ah-oh oh-oh)
Watch it break like knives in the pavement!
(Woa-ah-oh) GO!
We're just getting warm!

We brand and bury
The sounds that carry all the weight (Woa-ah-oh oh-oh)
Keep killin', keep killin' it! (Woa-ah-oh oh-oh)
The feelin' and this love of mine!
Track Name: Screams in Caves
Fighting with the bottle drinking me
Sunrise on red eyes
I'll take my one-man army to the streets
For this week's story

Washed up but he loves to say the lines
To empties on car seats
Most of the nights he starts as two of five
With no chance to out man

Ah-oh, The movie in my head is dragging on
Turn it off and we’ll shut in on the songs that play
In your heart like screams in caves
And talks that stay ‘till dark turns into oncoming today
You want a friend for life just listen to me

I know how good it looks before it's gone
The late bloom of a cold room
The bar lit star who always plays it wrong
Drinks to first tries on his last night

Ah-oh, The movie in my head is dragging on
Turn it off and we’ll shut in on the songs that play
In your heart like screams in caves
And talks that stay ‘till dark turns into oncoming today
You want a friend for life just listen to me

Fall to know it's fine, we can't expect much better
The trade for better times, the turn down without question
Don't you feel the pull? It's stronger now than ever
It left like melting snow and came back tough as leather

Fall to know it's fine, we can't expect much better
The trade for better times, the turn down without question
Don't you feel the pull? It's stronger now than ever
It left like melting snow and came back tough as leather

Wa-ah-ah-oh
Wa-ah-ah-oh wo-ah-oh
Wa-ah-ah-oh wo-ah-oh
Track Name: Close Knit
How you've got it down, solid as firebrick
Talk me all around, nothing or no one's problem you can't fix
The tunnel vision sets and straight ahead has never looked this clear
Grab the baseball bat, we're knocking loose the teeth of another year

If not a keeper, then re-build it
Dreams, for sleepers die in the blankets

Change games or refuse to play?
Can you fill out lines without the page?
True and scared aren't the same
Change games or refuse to play?
Can you fill out lines without the page?
True and scared aren't the same

Play the waiting game, you against your circumstance
Scavenge up the blame, piss poor exercise or its loser's chance
You can hate the rain easy enough from a cardboard stage
Working up complaints with nails, wood, hammers all at arm's length

Fuck whatever and just passing, will you settle on a loose fastening?
If not for keeps then what's it for? At least I'm happy over poor
If it's not a keeper than re-build it
Dreams, for sleepers, die in the blankets

(Oh!) Change games or refuse to play?
Can you fill out lines without the page?
True and scared aren't the same
Change games or refuse to play?
Can you fill out lines without the page?
True and scared aren't the same

All you'll ever be is who you think you are
Throwing bottles like you've never seen the wall
Are you saving it for a willing world?
All you'll ever be is who you think you are
Are you saving it for a willing world?
From close knit to seam rip, from upswing to fuck it all
Fuck it all

Can you change the game or refuse to play?
Can you fill out lines without the page?
'Cuz true and scared, they're never quite the same
The same
'Cuz true and scared, they're never quite the same

Can you change the game or refuse to play?
Can you fill out lines without the page?
'Cuz true and scared, they're never quite the same
Close knit to seam rip, from upswing to fuck it all
Close knit to seam rip, from upswing
To fuck it all
