Track Name: Texasaurus
Man the ropes and pull some strings
It must feel great behind the wheel of this wicked thing
Now, not much to our surprise
You’ve gone and fucked it up and left us all behind

Is that all you have to say?
Just look at the mess you made.
Don’t you think, my friend, that we’re in just too deep again
Don’t lightly take my words, I’ve got way too much to say

What did you get?
Tell me what did you get?

Just what did you get?
Just what did you get from this crown you wear?
Just what did you get?
Just what did you get from this crown you wear?
Track Name: Little Tyger
Little tyger, you’re hot to touch
Prowling around way too much.
After seeing everything that you do
I wonder, who but the devil could have ever made you?

In what heaven or what hell
Did they craft your eyes so well?
Which angel thought it would do
To put eyes like that in a woman like you?

And what shoulders could bear the weight
Of the brush that it would take
To paint the wicked strands of your heart
And when you came out screaming
Was your father there a demon?
Did he wish that he could tear you apart?

Did Haephaestus take his time
As he was hammering out your mind?
Do you think that he’d stop for a spell
To see the thing that he made out making such hell?

And when the spears come calling
And the tears come falling
Do you think the lord will know peace?
Did he gladly paint your stripes
And make you a man-eater by night?
Does he know that you’re wearing his fleece?

Little tyger, you’re hot to touch
Prowling around way too much.
After seeing everything that you do
I wonder, who but the devil could have ever made you?
Track Name: The Whole Island
I have never seen a place
Like the one in mind
And I had never dreamt a dream
Like I did last night

And this place is none like you’ve seen
Not in the wilds of your dreams
This place is none like you’ve seen.
This place
This place

There was a sea
Inside the ring of stone
When I saw the banners fly
I knew they were my own
And when that whistle blew
That was when I knew

We scale these peaks that we have never seen
We climb these cliffs until our fingers bleed
We reach the top in hopes of finding more
And right below is what we’re searching for

I had no idea
Where we were going
But I always knew we’d make it here

Can’t you hear I’m coming home?
Sound the trumpets, I’m coming home!
Didn’t you hear me? I’m coming home!
Open the gates, I’m coming home!
Track Name: Spoil The Child
Can you smell the rain
Coming down the river?
Can you feel the thunder
As it rolls?

Can you feel the wind
Whip across your face, brother?
Can you see the skies?
They’re getting dark.

It is coming for you..
She is coming for you.
That is why the sky turns black
That is why the sky turns black

And it’s never ever gonna go back
And it’s never ever gonna go back

It’s one foot at a time
The last step is goodbye
The storm will clean you off
Don’t give it any thought.
Track Name: The Greatest Joke Ever Told
Isn’t it funny how someone can just put a costume on, make you walk the plank, watch you say so long.
Isn’t that funny?
Isn’t it funny how someone can just throw a nightgown on, slam a hammer on a table and *poof* you’re gone?
Isn’t that funny?

Need I remind you we have made up everything you’ve seen.
Need I remind you the man on your left doesn’t say what he means.
Need I remind you we have made up everything you’ve seen.
Need I remind you we made it all up.

Isn’t it crazy how someone made up some magic lines, walk across them you’re lost in time?
Isn’t that crazy?
Isn’t it crazy at the flip of a switch it all could blow and who we were no one would know?
Isn’t that crazy?

Need I remind you we have made up everything you’ve seen.
Need I remind you the man on your left doesn’t say what he means.
Need I remind you we have made up everything you’ve seen.
Need I remind you we made it all up?

We were so important!
Oh so important!
Please just give us one more chance.

We were so important!
Oh so important!
Please just give us one more chance.

What do you mean there is no second chance?
What do you mean there is no second chance?

I see. We ruled the world to death.
We ruled it to death.
I see. We ruled the world to death.
We ruled it to death.

Isn’t it hilarious, what’s become of all of us?
Isn’t it hilarious?
Isn’t it hilarious, what’s become of all of us?
Isn’t it hilarious?
Track Name: Mallards & Wigeons
There you go again circling over my head
Why don’t you come down here instead?
You can fly, you can squeak, you can just swim away
Or we could just talk, but I am right in your way

There you go again banking back and coming around
There was nothing more troublesome than your sound
You can spy, you can sneak, you can just run away
Or we could just talk, but I am still in your way

Watch out, now! Here they come!
They’re flying in formation.
Don’t let them make you think you’ve got the gun.

Here you come again looking in on what I do.
I don’t know how to explain, it’s not me, it’s you.
You can lie, you can cheat, you can just run away
But we can’t talk ‘cause I am right in your face

Watch out, now! Here they come!
They’re bringing armageddon!
Don’t let them make you think you’ve got the gun

When will I ever see you again?
It has been quite the score.
I think you now you can hear me.
Now you hear me no more.
Track Name: The Pretty Lights
At first, all that I looked for
Were the shiny things that I thought I had wanted
But these are just signs of the glory that waits for the dead
They’re the first, not the best.

Pour
Some more
Oil into my eyes
Until all I see is light
And let it shine
I will gladly go blind

What makes
you think
You can see what you see
Go ahead: enlighten me.

I promise, these are just pretty lights
They aren’t anything like what you have wanted
These are just signs, of the glory that waits up ahead
They’re the first, I found the best.

What is the best?
It is what you say it is.
What is the best?
It is what you say it is.
What is the best?

It is what it is.
Track Name: Where Lions Replace Roosters
How many kings were crowned,
And how many knights have been knighted?
How many queens lost their daughters?
And how many nations united?

How many dragons were slain,
and how many died in made up wars?
It’s all just make believe that they were fighting for.

Can you say the same of the games you play?
Can you say the same of the games you play?

I’ll tell you something I have never seen before:
A grown man who can hold aloft a wooden sword.

Hold them high now!
Hold them high!
Hold them high now!
Hold them high!

I will tell you one more more time:
You have everything to fear
Don’t go bringing your business
Way out here

This is your very last chance
Go on, now, why don’t you get gone?
Don’t you see that the kings have their crowns on?

Don’t you see
Don’t you see that the kings have their crowns upon their heads?
Don’t you see
Don’t you see that the kings have their crowns upon their heads?
Track Name: Flotsam & Jetsam
I don’t mind the wind half as much
Now that all my sails are gone
‘Cause I don’t have a goddamn thing to worry about
Other than the flotsam that I’m on

I don’t have to fight the seas half as hard
Without my rudder right behind
‘Cause I don’t have to steer and I don’t have to drive.
And don’t even really mind

I remember each explosion
I remember every blast
Because I stood there and watched it
I watched all of it collapse.

If you burn all your ships you can join me
If you let the water swallow them whole
All you have to do is nothing
And off you would go.

You must hit the bottom
Before you can come back again
You must hit the bottom
Before you can die
Track Name: Glove Box
Never put your weed in the Glove Box
Track Name: En Passant
Make sure you walk on by
Before you pull that knife
And jam it in my back, old friend

Don’t look me in the eye
While you watch me die
I thought you brought me to my end

But you didn’t
And I am back on my feet
So good riddance
I don’t need you to speak.

You seem so sure
That you won’t taste dirt
I hope you do not meet your end

Will you follow her
To the ends of the earth?
She’ll stab you in the back, my friend.

Yeah, so she hasn’t.
Just give it a little bit.
It’ll happen
We’re all waiting for it.

How does it taste to you?
How does the poison taste to you?
Is it sweet like mother’s milk?
Does it taste like a honey wine?
One more sip and you’ll be feeling fine.
