Track Name: The Hilltop
the story begins on a bright bright sunny day
in the fall the leaves are colored brown and orange and red
two men walked along towards a hilltop in the sun
but one and only one would return
i'd be better left for dead
bound and gagged on these tracks again
such a foolish thought cuz we all know
that you were on the fence
both sides look nice but only if you squint your eyes
the truth is you can't decide

this fate is mine and its yet to be decided
tis better to be burned alive than to rot away and die
this silence I have vowed in empty rooms
is pointless to the point of love love love

i dont know how to react to
a face like that I don't condone
if you love'em let'em go
this rope is tied to me now
i'm being pulled towards uncharted grounds
can't counteract the simple fact i'm more willing as the weeks go on

and so it seems to fit
but you can't let go of what you cannot hold
and so alone I sit on this hilltop
what's it to you?
what's it to you my friend
whats it to you
Track Name: Hunters and Fishermen
there are two kinds of people in this world
one will sit slowly patiently for days
one will seek destroy like predator and prey
and we pray that our needs
custom fit to please
but what we seek is completely out of line

there is no cure there is no curse
so absurd a view its almost true

there are two ways to lose track of time
only one way to lose your mind
you will sit slowly patiently for days
you will seek destroy and overestimate
chasing bullets as they fly
they always reach the sky
before you even get a chance to show'em you've got style

there is no cure there is no curse
so absurd a view its almost true
there is no way to find out everything
it might hurt to take a fall or two

and when we try
so sorry for your loss
i didn't mean to prove

there is no cure there is no curse
so absurd a view its almost true
there is no way to find out everything
it might hurt to take a fall or two
the hunter and the fishermen both say
what we really need is patience
Track Name: Be Where
these strange beings have walked the earth for years
with silent persecution will slowly erase us all
slaves to modern traditions no way to fight this system
let it be dont let it be your ruin

created to manipulate
thoughts are consumed by their enchanting gaze
it has been said that they don't know anything
but I know better than that

all your personality must go
and all forms of expression are left to my discretion
only to be used when i see fit
and this house we've built with four walls and nothing else
protects us from the outside
no doors or windows so no one else can see

created to manipulate
thoughts are consumed by her enchanting gaze
it has been said that we don't know anything
but they should know better than that

from the inside you'll feel fine
cuz you dont know any better
darlin where'd you learn to be so cruel

when you leave here all alone
leave here all alone
you'll know where every last drop
of energy and sympathy have gone
