Track Name: City Of Ash
I want to tell you what we’ve done to get here
on top of nothing
king to a city of ash

I want to show you where I’ve been, but I can’t
it makes me sick to think that we’ve done this to ourselves
now I’ll forfeit my hand

take this mess you want it all
good fortune’s mistress in a red dress
and you know that
by this noose I’ll hang
my number’s up on the board again

I want to show you what I’ve done, but I can’t
this is harder than I’d like to admit
I want to show you where I’ve been, but I can’t
all that matters now is that you know you were the only comfort I couldn’t keep

take this mess you want it all
good fortune’s mistress in a red dress
and you know that by this noose I’ll hang
my number’s up on the board again

I guess you don’t need this any more than me
I bet I won’t want this any more than you
I hope she won’t have it any harder than me
I guess we don’t need this any more than you

we’re all in denial about it
Track Name: A Condition Worth A Mention
are you asleep or are you awake?
were you found lying naked in the dirt by your mother’s grave?

holding flowers
offering penance for the idea of sin
we’re all monster
we’re all savior
we’re all on the same list

are you a dead man?
have you sorted your own affairs?
trust no messiah with new clothes and clean hair

we bear the burden
we sing lullabies to your children
for you
so you don’t have to

are you asleep or are you awake?
are you standing in line at the hospital
bleeding on the floor again?

are you a dead man?
are you coming up for air?
the prophet brought you
a new line of credit
a dollar for a prayer

a new blanket of snow to lay beneath
and pray for thaw
