Track Name: Caught In Fires
Grief is the devil's tool
Used to gain back his rule
We will run home

We leave him a gaping hole
An easy way to our souls
But we will run home

And if you're caught in the fire run home

Fierce is his love and hope
No other way I could cope
Except by a hangman's rope
We will run home

We all get stuck, open doors they get shut
And life seems to break us
But we find our way like we ourselves made the day
And pat our own backs
But we have done nothing to say "I am the King"
Track Name: These Dirty Words
The boy got it into his head,
The world was against him, his parents were dead
But they always feed him and give him a home

Still he lashed out in a rage
Ran round in circles like cats in a cage
Men will forget all the things they adore

Hearts like ours will run away
Like a dirty word you could not say
And it's hard to see what we'd become
If we weren't made for love

The girl, she wants everyone's eyes
Wants all the boys wanting her as their prize
The power that she holds will break bridges and walls

She wears less everyday
She meets our boy and becomes his prey
Men will be hurtful just to feel love

By your side I will run
By your side I will become
A greater man than before
Cause I was made to adore
Track Name: Harris
Tradgedy has been forcing it's jaws on me
Distorting my views of God and love
Young was he, life has no guarantee
How can any goodness come from this?

Whisky it helps, it only helps for a bit and I knew it
I still came undone till I was numb and I cried like a child

And now that you're gone, we will never be the same
Like we're burnt in a fire, we will never be the same
We can only look up but we will never be the same
There's been too much pain

Let me be, the truth is it's scaring me
That we can be here one day then gone
I can see that this was not meant to be
But somehow there's hope inside of me
Track Name: Waging War
My hand attacks my heart and gains all the control
It cuts and tears all of the things that help me to be pure

But you still call my name, it's so much more than a game
I can still hear my name

I'm waging war
I've tasted the world and I know it's not for me

I walk these streets and I see all of the things that lead me down the wrong road now
I guard my eyes and I cling to the fact that one day I'll be free

I can see, the damage it's doing to me
I can see, it's making me feel like I'm wasting away
Track Name: Please Don't Leave
Desperate I cling to you and I know that there's something that I need to learn
I feel like I would freefall into darkness if I were ever to let go

Please don't leave me
Without you I feel alone

Explosions in my head mean that I miss you whenever I need you most
I try to go on solo but my strongholds shoot me down to where I lie
