Track Name: "C'est la Vie"
When I found innocence
in a sense
I drowned.
We both fell
down the drain,
my only hope
went up in smoke

And you can’t hear
what I won’t say
the brightest noise
the dullest pain
And you can’t fix
what you can’t see
no other left
C’est la vie.

But you might find yourself a-wishin’
that you hadn’t slammed that door
shadows only like to follow
Lay back and open up your sorrow
spill a spring upon my floor
tears begin to fall and fall and fall

And we won’t hear
and they won’t say
the brightest noise
the dullest pain
And we won’t fix
what we can’t see
no others left, c’est la vie

And we won’t hear
and they won’t say
the brightest noise
the dullest pain
And we won’t fix
what we can’t see
no others left, c’est la vie
Track Name: "Here's to the State of Mary Fallin"
Here’s to the state of Mary Fallin
For trapped within her borders, there’s no room to discuss
The lies pouring from the mouths of those you’re supposed to trust
With zombie caged conformity and ignorant blood-lust
Yes, there’s no point in denying the machine is made of rust

Whoooaooo, here’s to the land, you’ve torn out the heart of
Mary Fallin, find yourself another country to be part of

Here’s to the government of Mary Fallin
With twisted, giant smiles, they strangle every star
Say anything you please, just don’t take it too far
Legislators stand for masters and the Governor’s a czar
It kind of makes you wonder just how free you are

Oh, here’s to the land, you’ve torn out the heart of
Mary Fallin, find yourself another country to be part of

And here’s to the false prophets of Mary Fallin
They’re really very friendly; they’ll surely help you out
As long’s you’re not gay and your Christianity’s devout
They’re generous with judgments they gladly, loudly spout
But if you don’t like the status quo, why don’t you just get out?

Oh, here’s to the land, you’ve torn out the heart of
Mary Fallin, find yourself another country to be part of

And here’s to the laws of Mary Fallin
Where Authority is sacred, there’re never enough rules
There are those who disagree, but the Bible says they’re fools
“There’s only one correct way and we teach it in the schools”
Too bad the prisons and police merely serve as tools

Oh, here’s to the land, you’ve torn out the heart of
Mary Fallin, find yourself another country to be part of
Track Name: "Crucify Me"
Oh I’m off to cut the roses
Then I’ll weave a crown of thorns
Oh I’m off to cut the roses
Then I’ll weave a crown of thorns
There’s a stake to be ignited
And a body to be torn

Oh I’m off to set a-sailing
Oh so far away from here
Oh I’m off to set a-sailing
Oh so far away from here
I may get lost at sea but
It’d be better than lost here

Oh the sails are open blowing
The sails are surely free
Oh the sails are open blowing
The sails are surely free
The wind fills them with glory
How I wish those sails were me

Oh if ever I am tempted
To flee into fangs of fame
Oh if ever I am tempted
To flee into fangs of fame
I just stare into a bottle
And try to forget my own name

Oh Fortuna is a-calling
You can surely hear her cry
Oh Fortuna is a-calling
You can surely hear her cry
I may not run to meet her
But then again I might

I said, I may not run to meet her
But then again I might
Track Name: "Broken Bell Jars"
Don’t be afraid
Face the day
A bitter taste
Wastes you and I

Under a sky
So sweet and sick

There’s no tomorrow
Nor yesterday
Regret or sorrow
That fills your mouth so thick

So you may run laugh and play
With all worries faded away
No horizon and no regrets
So tell me,
Have we made it yet?

You may find your eyes
Begin to rise
You may kiss benighted sight goodbye

And you may run laugh and play
With all worries faded away
No horizon and no regrets
So tell me,
Have we made it yet?
