Track Name: Flightless Bird, Part One
Instrumental
Track Name: Truth
I'm at the top of the hill
Looking over all I've built
Moving on but standing still
And I say to myself

The lie may hurt but the truth it kills
You say I won't but I always will
If you go, I will be here still
The lie may hurt but the truth it kills

Words you wrote are stuck in my head
Memories are better off dead
When mountains crumble to dust
I wonder what becomes of us

The lie may hurt but the truth it kills
You say I won't but I always will
If you go, I will be here still
The lie may hurt but the truth it kills
Track Name: Half Full
I was down but I got back up
I've got no reason to fill my cup
It's been a while, yeah it's been too long
But not 'til I'm dead will I be gone

Tell me I'm wrong and I'll give up this life
Tell me I'm dying I'll bury the knife
I was alive but not enough
So you told me to give it all up

I was lost but I found myself
Found my reflection was crying for help
It's been a while, yeah it's been too long
But inside my head I am already gone

Steady hands but the wheel took a spin
No one to blame for this pain that I'm in
Call my sons and I tell them it's over
"The glass is half full and your dad is half sober"
Track Name: Stages
The stages that we go through
I'll save them
The places that we both knew
I'll replace them
'Cos everything you are
All fades quick now
I watch you from afar
As they lay you down

The stages where we pull through
I'll chase them
The places that have turned blue
I'll embrace them
'Cos everything we are
All fades quick now
You watch me from afar
As you break new ground
Track Name: The Fire
I believe in the fire
Don't you dare call me a liar
I can't see now, I can't see no more
I can't breathe now, I can't breathe no more

All I remember is her eyes shone like embers
And I am haunted by the shadows that surrendered
If the elements align, are we running out of time?
You killed the fire but it's still burning in my mind

No more words need be spoken
'Cos all that used to be is broken
Let's start over now, let's find a new way to begin
Let's start over now and maybe I can breathe again

All I remember is her eyes shone like embers
And I am haunted by the shadows that surrendered
If the elements align, are we running out of time?
You killed the fire but it's still burning in my mind

I believe in the fire
Don't you dare call me a liar
Track Name: A Brief Moment of Happyness
I don't love you like I should do
But you don't mind
You don't love me and all I see when I look at you
Is a brief moment of happiness

That's how it goes, everyone knows
And if they say they don't know
They're all a bunch of liars

We don't go out, we talk about
Money and the weather and other unimportant things
We had it all, the rise and fall
But in the end it all just got repetitive

That's how it goes, everyone knows
And if they say they don't know
They're all a bunch of liars
Track Name: Battle Cry
Instrumental
Track Name: It's Always Raining in Philadelphia
The rain in Philly got me down
As we took a ride around the town
We laughed at loss and the things we found
But it's not the same when you're not around

Your heart was anchored at the docks
And my head was wrapped around the clocks
Your eyes looked tired but your face it looked the same
They gave you a number but I'll always know your name

Now I know where Penn landed
But I used to take these things for granted
The countless hours that we spent in record stores
Now I count the hours wanting more

We head home cold and alone
But warmth is spreading in my bones
'Cos you're my brother, you're my brother and my friend
So I pretend it's not the end
I pretend it's not the end
Track Name: Flightless Bird, Part Two
Flightless bird, don't look so down
You took a leap and hit the ground
When you fall, fall with grace
There's no reason to lose face

When the fear of growing old
Leaves you with a broken soul
There's no time to get lost
In a sea of second thoughts

Flightless bird, I heard the news
You recovered from your blues
Left the tracks in the snow
Found a reason to let go

In a haze of fever dreams
You grew tired of human beings
You will turn and come around
Once again you'll love the sound
