Track Name: Tear My Heart Out
Sunday morning on the wrong side of the bed
I felt somewhere between the living and the dead
An open window screaming out the night before
I drag my legs off of the bed onto the floor

Into the hall a sullen look into the mirror
Is that anger on my face or is it fear?
I can't remember what it was that tied my tongue
But it doesn't work the way it did when I was young

It won't tear my heart out
Will I be alright?
It won't tear my heart out anymore

Well down the stairs I went and stumbled to the door
It's all a game and I can't play it anymore
With the television drowning out the radio
There's got to be another place that I can go

It won't tear my heart out
Will I be alright?
It won't tear my heart out anymore

They're saying in the streets that rock and roll is dead
I hope it's true then I can finally rest my head
If its's all the same to you then I'll be moving on
I doubt that anyone will notice when I'm gone
Track Name: The Bad Nights
Well the brown haired girl never wants to be alone
And the black hearted man has his future set in stone
Worry weighs me down like a ton of bricks
And I try to get myself out from under it, alright

Now I lie awake with a battle in my mind
And she does what she can but there are things you can't unwind
Words they fill my head like a manuscript
Don't know what they mean when they leave my lips, alright

Do you remember the bad nights?
'Cause I remember the bad nights
But you knew we would be alright
Yeah you knew we would be alright
Track Name: I Wanna Be Your Light
All lit up like a television
You feel left out of the conversation
Staring at the world in your wide-eyed wonder
You fear that dark and you hear that thunder now
I wanna be your light oh yeah
I wanna make it right

Light, I wanna be your light
I wanna make it right

Fighting sleep with a smiling face
It's the hardest part, you put me in my place
And your laughing at a joke that nobody told
Well I blink my eyes and you're one year older now
I wanna be your light oh yeah
I wanna make it right

Light, I wanna be your light
I wanna make it right
Track Name: Icicles
Have I been on the wrong side?
Have I lost too much?
Why can't I reach inside my head
And pull these demons out?

Icicles will form in your veins
In time you're insane and alone
Track Name: The Fire Waits For No One
Close your eyes and say a prayer
For everyone you hate
Then send your kids around the world
To lands they can't escape

The fire waits for no one

So here's your consolation prize
A bullet in your face
The lies are in the capital
And not the lower case

The fire waits for no one

So tell me where we go from here
When it's all laid to waste
We never felt so far away
And looked so out of place

It's all inside your mind
A world you'll never find
