Track Name: This Is War
Ooh wee, babe, gonna crash the gate,
Til it breaks this time.
I know you can hardly wait,
To draw the battle lines.
The city sleeps, we wait impatient for the sun to rise.
At daybreak, the rounds and mortar drown the battle cries.

You don’t need to know my name,
This is war.
Draw the lines and play my game,
This is war.

We’ve got the tack, no turning back,
The street is ours, tonight.
No one can stand when we attack,
And God is on our side.
At my feet, a fallen soldier I don’t recognize,
Somebody’s son, lyin’ in the rain, with open eyes.

You don’t need to know my name,
This is war.
Draw the lines and play my game,
This is war.

How long, til it’s over,
Til we live again?
How long til it’s over,
Do we wait?

Send me your young, I’ll save a space,
On the battle lines.
Heroes are made here, everyday,
In desperate time.

You don’t need to know my name,
This is war.
Draw the lines and play my game,
This is war.

How long, til it’s over,
Til we live again?
How long til it’s over,
Do we wait?
Track Name: Overthrown
You said you can’t get up, today,
And its too late to straight the mess you made,
If there’s a chance to start all over,
Well, you’d choose it all the same.
Clouds form as you make your way,
Through the alleys and the city gates,
I thought I saw you looking back,
As your city lay in flames.

Let love find you overthrown,
There’s a kingdom overhead saying,
Let love find you overthrown,
Gonna crack your heart of stone.

You heard the knocking, but you couldn’t wake,
And love came to you in a drunken haze,
And every time you got a second chance,
Well, you played it like a game.
You heard the gun, but you couldn’t wait,
So you went running through a broken maze,
Looking over at the greener grass,
You’re a million miles away.

Let love find you overthrown,
There’s a kingdom overhead saying,
Let love find you overthrown,
Gonna crack your heart of stone.

Let love find you overthrown,
There’s a kingdom overhead saying,
Let love find you overthrown,
Gonna crack your heart of stone.
Track Name: Angels In A Noose
You have come too far today,
To throw it all away, and say you’re through.
You got swollen hands,
And the wind is at your back, to turn you blue.

And I know it won’t really make a difference,
You won’t hear a word I say, so what’s the use?
Speak and spell, the picture sells,
You’re praying to an angel in a noose.

If you think you’re tired, now,
You should try to wait, ‘til she gets home.
You’ll wake up in your kitchenette,
Bracing for the new day, all alone.

If you’re tired of wandering ‘round those sleepless nights,
And you’re wondering about those weapons that you choose.
String of pearls, the cover girls,
They are only for an angel in a noose.

Tra-la-la,
Sha-na-na-na,
Sha-na-na-na-na-na.
Tra-la-la,
Sha-na-na-na,
Sha-na-na-na-na-na.

You been walking through the subway,
With bleeding hands, and that’s the truth.
You gotten used to the way, people turn away in shame,
When they see you.

And if your head is burning from all those sleepless nights,
And you’re wondering about a spinning world shook loose,
Click and drag, the body bags,
Are only for the angels in a noose.

Tra-la-la,
Sha-na-na-na,
Sha-na-na-na-na-na.
Tra-la-la,
Sha-na-na-na,
Sha-na-na-na-na-na.
Track Name: We Shoot Golden
If you’re haunted by bully boys,
Who smile sincere as they take your toys,
Call on us, you have a choice,
We shoot golden.

If love turns cold when you call on her,
She walks on you ‘til your heart is sore,
Look to us, we have a cure,
We shoot golden.

The doctors say that you won’t heal,
The medications make you ill,
We’ll give you something that you can feel,
We shoot golden.
We shoot golden.

When you’re sick, and call out,
We’ll be there, to calm you.
When you get too high to fall,
We’ll be there to talk you down,
If you sink and start to drown,
There’ll be waves to save you.
If you slip and falter,
There’ll be wolves that find you.

We shoot golden.
We shoot golden.
Track Name: Shallow Water
Well, day and night the rain fell,
The storm cast an evil spell,
The river began to swell,
And the people began to wail.
The rain came for forty days,
The high priest began to pray,
The clear skies turned to gray,
And the people began to wail.

Oh, its shallow water,
Oh, its shallow water,
Oh, its shallow water,
Oh, its shallow water.

The cotton fields they turned to mud
When the highland began to flood,
The angels lit from above,
When the rivers, they turned to blood,
And the four walls, they gave away,
The people they tried to save,
As the building got swept away,
And the children got swept away.

Oh, its shallow water,
Oh, its shallow water,
Oh, its shallow water,
Oh, its shallow water.

The people, they left their home,
And their children start to moan,
As the waters, they start to climb,
And the babies, they start to cryin’.
They say, “Hey!
Its shallow water,
Oh, its shallow water,
Oh, its shallow water,
Oh, its shallow water.”
Track Name: Futura Bold (Bonus Track)
Wake up in a vacant state,
In the deep fluorescent cold.
White light in my blinking mind,
As the midnight turns to gold.
Cool nails, the body fails,
You’ll never be the same.
Last chance on an exit out,
And its my only game…


I’ll take my chances.
I’ll take my chances.
I’m never gonna sleep at night, no no.
I’m never gonna sleep at night, no no.


No love in a godless world,
As the nuclear winter blows.
Chain hearts in a leather box,
As acceleration grows.
Sleep tight, we’re the comatose,
It’s a serious affair.
Wake up in the mortal coil,
Eating crystal on a dare.


I’ll take my chances.
I’ll take my chances.
I’m never gonna sleep at night, no no.
I ain’t never gonna sleep at night,
I ain’t gonna dream at night, no more.


I’m never gonna sleep at night, no no.
I’m never gonna sleep at night, no no.
I ain’t never gonna sleep at night,
I ain’t gonna dream at night, no more.
I’ll take my chances,
I’ll take my chances,
I’ll take my chances,
I’ll take my chances.
Track Name: Christine (Bonus Track)
I wasn’t with it when you called me up to tell me,
You were coming by,
I should have listened to my friends who tried to warn me,
About the way you lie.
I couldn’t hear it when you said it wasn’t working,
That you were walking out.
Yes, I guess I should chalk it up to learning,
What you’re all about.


Christine, you should see yourself,
When you’re all dressed up,
To say goodbye.


You decided you could call me up for comfort,
When the tables turned.
You play your best when you’re preying on my weakness,
I guess I’ll never learn.
It must be nice to have somebody you can lean on,
When you’re feeling down.
You’ll reach for me, when you finally feel the sickness,
I won’t be around.


Christine, you should see yourself,
When you’re all dressed up,
To say goodbye.
Suddenly, I can’t help myself,
When you’re all dressed up in black,
To say goodbye.
