Track Name: Grey Wolves
I haven't seen this side of you in pages
like chapters we use to read when we were kids
but you never use to be so violent

i haven't seen you this way hours
i thought this was a bridge we could pass
but you were always at the bottom of our hourglass

but oh i should have known
we were always the same
all of the grey wolves just trying not to be tamed

months have passed since we saw the mountains
and i thought id never see that sunset again
and now all our ties are lost and we're seperate

well we've finally come to realize
that this simply is not effortless
and it will continue on just like this
Track Name: Just Once, But Not The First
once upon a morning, the world tuned grey
but it wasn't from the clouds it was just a different shade
and once while i was mourning the death of color here
i remembered all the hues and i began to fear that

everything changes everything
everything changes everything
everything everywhere, everywhere always

once while i was searching for the answers to my thoughts
i found everything that we were not
my friends i found innocence
my dear i found beauty in waves
that will wash over us when we see the day where

everything changes everything
everything changes everything
everything everywhere, everywhere always
always
Track Name: November 3rd
Who will be the groom, who will be the bride
in a stained glass room with you standing side by side
hand in hand, name for name
but is this just what happens when the comfort sets in

who will be the groom and who would be your bride
in a white wash church with you standing by her side
unsure hand in your hand. your name for name
but is this just what happens when the love starts to fade

when the love starts to fade
the blood rushes to your face
when the love starts to fade
you start to wonder who will take your place

and who will make this toast
raise their glass and read all the words i wrote
and who will find, who could hope to find
a love like yours in the rest of their lives
but is this just what happens when you grow old

cause when you grow old
your hearts too heavy for your bones
when you grow old
but you were young and we will never know
Track Name: Moses Without A Miracle
we lit one up in a house made of leaves
watched it burn, cried god how could this be
and we searched the remains and found with disdain
that, in the end, no it didnt mean a thing oh my god

we're not a beacon we're just a fire to cast your dead in
holding on to what's left of what we knew

we found all the time in the world
but it wasn't enough to replace the pearls
that we threw to the pigs and dried up all our figs
and as we starved did it even me a thing to you god

we're not a beacon we're just a fire to cast your dead in
holding on to what's left of what we knew

we walked away from love when we said
enough was enough we'll just suffer instead
alone in the wake of all our mistakes
is this how you felt and did i mean everything to you god
did i mean everything to you god
cause you were the meaning all along
you meant everything to me
Track Name: Fathers
our fathers' air is in our lungs
their blood's in the stream and we stay stuck
did you not see the harm you'd done in being you
did you love the snow more than your son
did you find hope but it just wasn't enough
did you not see the harm you'd done in being you

we are portraits hanging in the hall
we are the aftermath of the fall
we are just trying to find room
in being your sons but not being you

did you hear the words and they didn't help
did you look at him and really not see yourself
did you not see the harm you'd done in being you
could you not have known the rest
when you said here son just take whatever's left
did you not see the harm you had done just by being you
well you were just being you
Track Name: Sons
there's a lock on the basement
keep the bad things away
there's a warm blanket in the closet
to keep the monsters at bay

and your mother held you tight
you still cried all night
cause when you fall asleep
you feel them start to creep

and there's a stonewall in the backyard
it keeps my vision to the sky, as long as i don't ask why
and there's six strings in my room
to drown out the sound when no one's around

but my father told me son
just don't stay on the run
you gotta fight your demons
and then you gotta leave 'em

and there's six strings in my room
that you'll have some day
to play your troubles away
