Track Name: Carry Me
If this is all we get, if it's the best that we’ll ever have
I’ll put my arms around you and drag you down with me
I’ll bleed your winter sun, breathe into your dusty heart
Look for the secret beat, I won’t stop looking

Oh, carry me
Please carry me
Carry me through to winter

If this is all we ever get, if it's the best we’ll ever have
I’ll fuck you on stained sheets and never talk about it
I’ll take your fallen leaves and throw them on the fire
I’ll take your frozen breath and mingle it with mine

Oh, carry me
Please carry me
Carry me through to winter

The door’s locked, we shouldn’t go there
The windows’re broken but I don’t care
Just lay me down on the concrete floor
Rub sugar in the dirt til I just can’t take no more

Oh, carry me
Please carry me
Carry me through to winter
Track Name: Raven
I’m flying
Away from here
I’m rising
Over fear

Storm clouds
Moving in
The hills
Are hiding

Raven
Surveys the field
Unblinking
She soars

I’ve flown for thousands of miles
Though ruins in the sky
Through smoke from a world on fire
Just to see your…

Eyes close
My descent
Sky trailing
Spiral away

Clouds part
Reflection
Light scatters
Into your heart
Into your heart
Into your heart
Track Name: Don't Turn
There was a road and I walked on it
Watching for headlights, hiding from headlights
Looking into shadows
Looking into distances

Eyes on the stars
Feet on the ground
Don’t turn around

Straight ahead and down the track
Watching for windows, hiding from windows
Listening to cornfields
Listening to highways

Eyes on the stars
Feet on the ground
Don’t turn around

The road led north or maybe west
Watching for signs, hiding from signs
Waiting for sunrise
Waiting for clear skies

Eyes on the stars
Feet on the ground
Don’t turn around
Track Name: History Lesson
You sure like to talk about our history
As if those years make up for what you do to me
But I’m putting that book on the shelf
You can read it all by yourself

You and me, we fought so many border wars
That long ago I forgot what they were for
You could give lessons in failed diplomacy
But you won’t be giving them to me

On the blackboard
It’s been written
History lesson
You won’t be forgetting

They say you can learn a lot from history
But you have to open up your eyes to see
Where the battle lines should break
How to not repeat mistakes
Track Name: High Tension Wire
What would it take
To cross this distance
Through these walls we make
Through your resistance

Smoke rises from your mouth
As the night gets longer
Words falter, words fall
As the current gets stronger

What are we waiting for
Losing time with every second
Just one word, one touch
Just one touch

On a high tension wire
Waiting for your transmission
Signals crack and burn
As we stake out our positions
Track Name: Storm
I won’t explain
I’ll bring the rain
Keep it coming down
Overwhelm you til you drown

This is one thing you can’t take from me
My storm
I swear you’ll never break me
My storm

What I feel it is my own
I won’t tell you, you can’t know
Light flash across the sky
White sparks arise

This is one thing you can’t take from me
My storm
I swear you’ll never break me
My storm

Shine rising on the street
Blue petrol smelling sweet
Black mirror sound
And the glass comes crashing down

This is one thing you can’t take from me
My storm
I swear you’ll never break me
My storm...
