Track Name: Who Do You Think That You Are?
VERSE I
I’m out of mind and out of reason
I’m making moves, to shut the feeling out
My trepidations start to blaze
You cauterize my sense of being
I’m breaking down, I’m barely breathing now
You say that I’m the one to blame

PRE-CHORUS
But who do you think that you are?
You’re waking my demons again,
and I’m feeling so undone,
but so are you.

CHORUS
You’re all I’ve ever needed, set me free
Atomic baby’s got me on my knees

VERSE II
I never knew the kind of feeling
It makes you cold, it makes you freezing but
Let’s strike a match and kiss the fuse
A conversay-shh, a conversation
You talk in tongues
You cut me down and leave me low with all your wide-eyed quick tricks,
Sick thoughts and voice on the radio

PRE-CHORUS
But who do you think that you are?
You’re waking my demons again,
and I’m feeling so undone,
but so are you.

CHORUS

BRIDGE
It feels so good when you love me
Feels so bad when you leave me
Confirmation: you’re a mastermind
I’m splitting like an atom on a pipe dream
Ripping like the stitchin’ at the last seam
I don’t know if I can go on, no more, you don’t own me anymore no

CHORUS
Track Name: Say You Believe
Mystified
By the feeling
In my mind
Terrified
That I’m dreaming
Or I’ve died…

So unravel me lovingly
Tear me apart
I’m consciously craving
The beat of your heart
On a road
to make you mine

Oh ooh oh ooh oh
Say you believe
That the sky could turn red
The cities could fall
Despite all the ashes
We’d still have it all
Oh ooh oh ooh oh
Say you believe
That when all’s said and done
That we’d stand above
United, defiant
As legends of love

Broken bones
Couldn’t keep me
From your side
war machines
Couldn’t break us
Or divide

As the world is imploding
We’ll dance on the pyre
While towers are falling
We’ll sing like a choir
On a road where you are mine

Oh ooh oh ooh oh
Say you believe
That the sky could turn red
The cities could fall
Despite all the ashes
We’d still have it all
Oh ooh oh ooh oh
Say you believe
That when all’s said and done
That we’d stand above
United, defiant
As legends of love

Oh you say you love me but
You show in subtle ways
Open up my heart and
You bleed the pain away
As we lie
Slipping softly
Out of time
I will smile
At the ending
Cause you’re mine

Oh ooh oh ooh oh
Say you believe
That the sky could turn red
The cities could fall
Despite all the ashes
We’d still have it all
Oh ooh oh ooh oh
Say you believe
That when all’s said and done
That we’d stand above
United, defiant
As legends of love
Track Name: Blackout
VERSE 1
Little pieces
Are fallin’ all around
But you delight in coinciding with the revelry
Your black magic
Has got me mystified
Cause I’m a sucker for the kinda pain you prophesize

PRECHORUS
Every time that you would say that you would set me free
You corner, capture, kill and cultivate your love for me
(oh) baby let me go
(say) how you love me so
I need it, believe it
So tell me your lies

CHORUS
When the blackout comes
Cause I looked away
Turned my cheek
About yesterday
Gonna come to you on my hands and knees
Pour another round cause I don’t need slow release

V2
The walls are movin’
I like the way you quake
You’re like a magnet with a bullet for a heart to break
And I can take it
Gimme ya heathen ways
The pain’s a counter to the pleasure and I love the taste

PRECHORUS

BRIDGE
Oh, well in time I will leave you on the line
Well designed, I will leave you all in time
All in time
All. In. Time.

CHORUS x3
Track Name: Inherent Vice
V1
It didn’t take much to fuck it up
But I still wonder why you’re gone
You told me cause “it’s all a masquerade”
I thought the fools in us would change

PRE-1
But little did I know the roots had found the rocks
(stay a little while, won’t you say that you need me)
And now you gotta go and I can’t make you stop
Oh no

CHORUS
Take me, all that I am (woah, woah)
A paper heart with a master plan

V2
Inherent vices claim a cost
to break is all in my design
I built our castle made of sand
And that’s what makes me who I am

PRECHORUS
So when all my molecules fall to disrepair
(stay a little while, won’t you say that you need me)
I’ll still believe the trees had so much fruit to bear

CHORUS
Take me, all that I am (woah, woah)
A paper heart with a master plan (all that I am, I’ll ever be)
To rule the world, to make it bend (woah, woah)
Take me, all that I am

BRIDGE
The thunder caught between my teeth
I couldn’t find the breath to say “I miss your face” (I miss your face)
I thought we’d find a way to mend
Diverging lines of love and fate

CHORUS
