Track Name: The Boy & the Tearaway
A boy is born
Wrapped up in her arms
Protection from a world
In a world he can’t disarm
Until…

Their eyes meet
Their lives collide
And they hide from harm
The boy and the tearaway

I’m a tearaway
We’re two halves of the same
The boy and the tearaway

Two lives entwined
And held within a shell
One ends up in heaven
While the other hides its frozen face in hell

Their eyes meet
Their lives collide
And they hide from harm
The boy and the tearaway

I’m a tearaway
I’m a tearaway today
Then another, I’m me
Track Name: Things That Hide in the Dark
A dawn, a frail light
Stole upon the morning
Casting shadows of the pretty things
That hide in the dark
Is it his back that’s breaking in half?

No it’s not his place to show them the door
This is not how we do it here boy
We’re all the same

Everything he lived for passed away
Everything he lived for came…

Dancing out of the doldrums
Standing taller, made of ember
Breathing in the fallout from the wars
His downy lip lifts up in anger
Forms a blank expression, calmer
Wonders if he’ll grow up pure and young

No it’s not his place to show them the door
This is not how we do it here boy
We’re all the same

Everything he lived for passed away
Everything he lived for passed away

Can he pretend he’s the modern man?
When this is all he understands
His eyes are shot and they’re fucked from drugs
He lifts his hand to cover up his mug

We’re all the same

Everything he lived for passed away
Everything he lived for passed away
Track Name: Bright New Worlds
There comes a point in time
When the tables are turned
So ill defined are the measures of life and death combined
Into something between our states of mind

Man proposes, God disposes
Everything’s lost that He knew life owed us
Where are the bright new worlds
As the old disown us now?

A plan to fill a void
In a life hollowed out by being employed
In a station to sink a hope that’s buoyed
By the promise of life
Unkempt, destroyed

Man proposes, God disposes
Everything’s lost that He knew life owed us
Where are the bright new worlds
As the old disown us?

Now we’re sorry for
The way we acted out the things we saw
We’re sorry for
The way we failed, the faces we once wore
We’re sorry for
The way we danced, the way we kissed,
The things we grabbed, the things we missed
Those empty hearted promises
Enlisted in the dust encumbered floor

A glance and not a trace
Proletariat eyes look out the face
Of a classless man
Born to waste his time
Fitting in a lonely place

Man proposes, God disposes
Everything’s lost that He knew life owed us
Where are the bright new worlds
As the old disown us?

Now we’re sorry for
The way we acted out the things we saw
We’re sorry for
The way we failed, the faces we once wore
We’re sorry for
The way we danced, the way we kissed,
The things we grabbed, the things we missed
Those empty hearted promises
Enlisted in the dust encumbered floor
