Track Name: Take Over
Underground
Waiting for a sound
Air raid siren guns start firing

And I can't escape
This new world order
Only a matter of time before they

Take over
Our lives are theirs to have
Take over
If we don't fight we lose the night
Take over
What can we give when they want more
Take over
Our brothers' blood is on the floor

And war is here
It's all around
Air raid siren guns start firing

And this new world order
This contained disorder
Only a matter of time before they

Take over
Our lives are theirs to have
Take over
If we don't fight we lose the night
Take over
What can we give when they want more
Take over
Our brothers' blood is on the floor
Track Name: Blue Glass Boy
They said he was put together
Said he was built to last
They said he was beautiful
But he was a crack of blue glass
In minds he walked for days
Leaving memories that never fade.
Still not everyone remembers
The boy made of blue glass

And time forgets those
Who don't make their mark
But he left his
He left it in a tiny spark
We all drop slowly
And some fade with grace
But memories linger
About the broken blue glass face

Blue glass boy
We'll never see what he's done
And all we can see
Is the truth we're running from


The fear grows inside
Like spiders in the dark
Reaching up to grab you
No matter where you hide
You cycle between poles
At the flick of a switch
There is no middle ground
Just a blue glass itch

Blue glass boy
Won't ever see the day
But sometimes we wake up
Wishing the sun would fade

And you could never grow
And you could never age
We all grew through you
In different ways
So as the sun sinks
Beyond the grass
We were proud to know you
The blue boy made of glass
Track Name: No Man's Land
When the war is finally over
I will lay it down across your shoulder
We'll scale that hill and jump the boulder
And plant that flag in it's rightful holder

Freedom will overcome us
We'll scream and holler to the skies above
'Cause we're not held down to the flag that owns us
We've planted in there and stay there it must

And my dreams did not consist of being this
Playing futile wars for such a futile cause
I never thought I'd have to come to living this
Death and guilt on my hands
Lost in the middle of no man's land

I remember in the stormy weather
The wait would feel like we were in it forever
With old steel hats and the straps of leather
I couldn't help feeling we were all together

The time would come when the crash and thunder
Of god know what drives us to trouble and blunder
As we go up go up and over
Who's left to survive we're left to wonder

And my dreams did not consist of being this
Playing futile wars for such a futile cause
I never thought I'd have to come to living this
Death and guilt on my hands
Lost in the middle of no man's land

And the time will come and we'll know it well yeah we'll know it well
The crash of the drums will follow us to the top of this hill
Raise it up for the world can see and signify it's over
When we've all just wasted our lives following a flag into war

And my dreams did not consist of being this
Playing futile wars for such a futile cause
I never thought I'd have to come to living this
Death and guilt on my hands
Lost in the middle of no man's land

And my dreams did not consist of being this
Playing futile wars for such a futile cause
I never thought I'd have to come to living this
Death and guilt on my hands
Lost in the middle of no man's land
Track Name: She Controls the Weather
There's radio silence
From your side of the street
The rain drowns me out
And I just can't compete
The mist rolls in
Descending over me
Trapped in clouds
Why can't I be

She makes me feel like the summer sun through the clouds
I'm a monsoon when you're not around
And I'm dry like a heat wave in Nevada
Cause she she controls the weather

And I'm cold from the snow in your heart
And I'm blind the fog covers my eyes
A tidal wave of pain crashes over me
Cause she
She controls the weather

And when you talk
It's like drowning in the sea
I wanna come for air
But you just won't let me
And when you sing
They clouds they run away
The sun comes through
And everything is

She makes me feel like the summer sun through the clouds
I'm a monsoon when you're not around
And I'm dry like a heat wave in Nevada
Cause she she controls the weather

And I'm cold from the snow in your heart
And I'm blind the fog covers my eyes
A tidal wave of pain crashes over me
Cause she
She controls the weather

And your spell on me
And your rain dance voodoo
Won't leave me be
But I don't need you
Your cage of clouds
They can't contain me
I'm breaking out
And finally I'm free
Track Name: The Lumberjack
Times are hard for the working jack
Got a heavy axe but no wood in my sack
Walks alone through the moonlit wood
Tired of work because of the iron in his blood

Cause he’s a lumberjack
He breaks a sweat on his brow feels the sun on his back
Into the black
Fire burns away everyday
There’s nothing more to say
He’s the lumberjack

Taste of ash and the clash of steel
Working hard to keep on turning the wheel
as the iron soars
Axe and timber go to war

Cause he’s a lumberjack
He breaks a sweat on his brow feels the sun on his back
Into the black
Fire burns away everyday
There’s nothing more to say
He’s the lumberjack

Cause he’s a lumberjack
He breaks a sweat on his brow feels the sun on his back
Into the black
Fire burns away everyday
There’s nothing more to say
He’s the lumberjack
Track Name: Hurricanes
I'm searching for the truth that's in my head
Crawling on the cracked floor
All my skin shed
I wish I could see you through the haze
This broken dream becomes a twisted maze

You don't know what's coming for you
You can't see what's really true
Now I'm looking for the spirit that frees
But all I can see is hurricanes and trees

I'm for the lightening in the sky
The rain's pouring down but all the rivers are dry
I can see you on the horizon
Pull the trigger and your world caves in

You don't know what's coming for you
You can't see what's really true
Now I'm looking for the spirit that frees
But all I can see is hurricanes and trees

Silence fills this empty space
All that's left are shadows of your face
Hurricanes whip my tired mind
And when the light goes I'm blind
