Track Name: The Revolution's Coming Home
found you in the tower of an opium den
you were commanding quite the crowd
i saw you watchin me and then
found a chance to get too drunk
and dance too hard and cling to you
won't you just admit you love the things that i could bring to you

you're gonna keep it hidden
you said that's what you did
you're gonna keep it hid

met you in the middle, started marching side by side
for the first time in our lives we fought the urge to run and hide
let's gather all our people now, defy the state and steeple now
don't you let them get to you, don't let the panic get to you

don't let it break you, tear the shadows out from 'neath my skin
i hate to wake you but the truth is i am scared again
you feel me shaking, i am faking like i've never cared
my heart's a'racing now, i feel you in me everywhere

you're gonna keep it hidden
you said that's what you did
you're gonna keep it hid

mercy misses nothing when she's walking with the wealth
while the ones she leaves forsaken live in poverty and hell
look me in the face, there's not another day to waste
there are secrets breaking from our bones, the revolution's coming home

don't let it break you, tear the shadows out from 'neath my skin
i hate to wake you but the truth is i am scared again
you feel me shaking, i am faking like i've never cared
my heart's a'racing now, i feel you in me everywhere

don't let it break you when the days are dark and nights are long
i'll stand beside you here to share the weight and sing this song
i'm still shaking but i'm certain we can bring them down
our hearts are racing now with spirits soaring all around
Track Name: Whiskey Eyes
the sky is caving in and mischief is in style tonight
but i'm just passing through
still looking for a place that's light
i get distracted when you look at me with whiskey eyes

i'm sure you've gathered that the
neighborhood has seen its share
of careless cowards hoping they can catch you unaware
sometimes i stare at them until they turn their heads to the sky

i heard you came here on a train from some utopia
now three years later, this old town, it won't let go of ya
just come with me now while both of us are still alive

you think i'm crazy cos i'm drownin in your whiskey eyes
you say you're lazy but i know that it is just a disguise
i don't think your shadow even stands a chance in the light
Track Name: Flesh & Blood & Breath
the miles between our skin reminds me that we're living in
a moment of our lives, this is a moment of our lives
it's time we disembarked from false regards
pursuit of fragile homes of cards
i believe that we are all to blame

we will take nothing but all

these piles of sticks and stones
remind me that we're made of bones
and flesh and blood and breath
yes we are flesh and blood and breath
and we are running over forests, oceans
anything to stay in motion
i don't think we're leaving here alive

we will take nothing but all
i won't mind if you don't mind me
i won't go where you can't find me
we rallied the righteous and we're ready to go
they fought for our freedom but there's nothing to show

we will take nothing but all
they're on their own
we will take nothing but all
Track Name: Morning Song
sunday morning, won't be missing my own bed
rather charmed, alarmed to be with you instead
i know our time is fleeting and we never could stay true
still i'll spend a messy morning just to clean it up with you

ain't been sleeping much since summer rolled around
every corner that i turn again am found
the night will go on shining like the glass beneath our feet
we'll pedal to the sunrise and sing it through the streets

smoke, it billows through the window
don't think it's a sin, though to make you wanna smile
to make you wanna soak in everything we're given
take a shot at livin, it's only for a while

i will always be free
i will always be faithless

might be leavin home or maybe you will stay
neither's right or wrong, i won't get in your way
i know our time is fleeting but i sure enjoyed the ride
i might have to meet the morning but i'll never go inside

smoke, it billows through the window
don't think it's a sin, though to make you wanna smile
to make you wanna soak in everything we're given
take a shot at livin, it's only for a while

just let me sing you songs
just let me make you smile
waste away the day with me
it's only for a while
Track Name: Secret Sounds
seems like you're trying to hide your hands
seems like you'll blame me for all this and maybe more
some things just don't go as you planned
you left me so unsure, i left you insecure

don't you wanna make amends
has it been a while, don't you wanna smile
don't you wanna trust your friends
grudges give you ghosts, like what you wanted most

the shapes in all your secret sounds
they lift me up and let me down
i can't believe i'll never breathe so easily again
and all i gain from growing older's
more to carry on my shoulders
every stare's a chance to care so easily again
so close your eyes

looks like you'd like to take a leap
looks like you're moving on, looks like our love is gone
there comes a choice of kill or keep
both might hurt a bit, both might make you sick

don't you wanna strike us out
don't you wanna love the one you do without a doubt
i've accepted what is right
i acknowledge that goodbye seems so more sure than goodnight

the shapes in all your secret sounds
they lift me up and let me down
i can't believe i'll never breathe so easily again
and all i gain from growing older's
more to carry on my shoulders
every stare's a chance to care so easily again
so close your eyes
