Track Name: The Teller
I know, I know a terrible secret
and I keep it
liars, liars commit to your lies and you'll find
no one is inclined
to question

because nobody knows the first thing about you
unless you tell them yourself

this is why we dance
this is why we fight
this is why the rage is always burning
and my heart is clenched like a fist trying to keep it all in

silence, silence is quickly forgotten
and assumed
to be nothing

on this island
everything is the way it is
because it is the way it is

nobody knows a damn thing about you
unless you tell them yourself

this is why we dance
this is why we fight
this is why the rage is always burning
and my heart is clenched like a fist trying to keep it all in

here on the island, the only place there is
there is a way that we behave
we feed the machines
the machines feed us
and nobody asks the obvious
we feed the machines
the machines feed us
and nobody asks the obvious

this is why we dance
this is why we fight
this is why the rage is always burning
and my heart is clenched like a fist trying to keep it all in
Track Name: Are We Gods Now?
we followed our dreams
reached for the stars
never forgot who we are
are we gods now?
are we gods now?

we lined up, riled up and ready to fight
and suddenly noticed the silence that hung where you might have been
you were nowhere to be seen

so if you go there I beg you go lightly
take care where you tread my friend for you tread on my dreams
for all that we know now the world will keep turning
and this revolution will come around again
and maybe we'll win

we picked up your song
all sang along
never once got the words wrong
oh are we gods now?
are we gods now?

silence is not an answer
but sometimes there is not an answer
silence

so if you go there I beg you go lightly
take care where you tread my friend for you tread on my dreams
for all that we know now the world will keep turning
and this revolution will come around again
and maybe we'll win

so if you go there I beg you go lightly
take care where you tread dreamer do for you tread on my friends
for all that we know now the world never was turning
and this revolution will fail and fail again
and again
Track Name: Found My Enemy
sister sing your siren song
it's no surprise to me
I heard your whisper on the waves
and I found my enemy
found my enemy

the ocean brought our song along
and took my love form me
I was bold and bonnie and betrothed
and now I lost all three
but found my enemy

I send a bird to find my love as my heart yearns
but I do not recognise the creature who returns
bloodied, black and brutal
with treasure in his hold
a monster of a man
who would trade love for gold
love for gold

maybe you are innocent
my sister of the sea
and did not know your song would make
a widow out of me
although his heart still beats

I send a bird to find my love as my heart yearns
but I do not recognise the creature who returns
bloodied, black and brutal
with treasure in his hold
a monster of a man
who would trade love for gold
love for gold
