Track Name: They'll Bury Me
They’ll bury me a thousand times before I die
And a thousand times I’ll rise again
Better than I was before

They’ll bury me, They’ll throw the dirt over my head
Convincing themselves that I am dead
With and arrogant certainty, they’ll bury me

It’s a never ending struggle
A constant fight to stay alive
I guess we’ll see if it's me or
My tormentors who survive

They’ll bury me
Digging deep and digging fast
Hoping this time it will last for eternity
They’ll bury me

It’s a never ending cycle
It goes round and round and round
I try to stay on my feet
They try to keep me in the ground

They’ll bury me
They’ll put the coins over my eyes
Then they’ll be in for the big surprise that shouldn't be
Cause it happens every time they bury me
Track Name: The Gift Of Wisdom
We all have gifts
Some of us know what they are
Some of us don't know yet
We all have things
That God has given us to help each other with
I believe this is true
And I believe when I look at you

Yours is not the gift of wisdom
I hear it every time you open up your mouth
Yours is not the gift of wisdom
We all know it's true from the things you spew

Claiming Old Testament verses out of context
Saying they're for you
I'm sorry but I didn't know you were a 2600 year old Jew
Claiming success in this life from Jeremiah
Tell it to Saint Paul, Peter and Uriah
Track Name: I Can Move (Early Demo)
Only when you know there's a way out
Can you dwell on things that seem so hopeless
Only when you know the mystery
Can you contemplate your own destruction

I Can Move

Only when you see your failures
Can you really see the not yet
Only when you throw your hands up
Can you really ever do anything

I Can Move

Only when you look outside you
Can you see how you fit in
Only when you quit holding on
Can you really grasp anything
Track Name: Sirens (Early Demo)
How long will I ignore you before it goes away
How long will I ignore you before it goes away
Will you darken my heart
Will you darken my heart

It gets easier every time I turn away
To not feel like I'm wrong I'll sing along
With the sirens as they lead me to destruction
And the songs we sing sound so much better to my ears then your voice
I'll make a choice to ignore you while you're calling me back home

I know there's no life without you
I know there's nowhere I can go

It gets easier every time I turn away
To not feel like I'm wrong I'll sing along
With the sirens as they lead me to destruction
And the songs we sing sound so much better to my ears then your voice
I'll make a choice to ignore you while you're calling me back home
