Introduction 01:39
once and tired once and tired we grow tired forever oh you go oh you go oh you know me better say you, say you won’t say you, say you won’t once and tired once and tired we grow tired forever

i saw the baby alone in his bed crawl to the lobby, to find you forget he wants to forget, he wants to forgive i call to rachael, “be brave where you stand! take up your mantel, with blood on your hands!” you want to be brave, you want to forget you want to forgive que la vida bella (may the beautiful life) nos mantenga (keep us) que la vida bella (may the beautiful life) nos mantenga (keep us)

No Silence 05:30
how could i, crashing through the sky find my way back to you? i won’t try, given that i might lose myself somewhere when you’re gone what would i give just to be back? break through this barely opened gate? close it now, before i’m tempted through! there must be a better way “leave your home,” they tell me “leave it soon.” did i hope to split right through? “leave the west,” they tell me “why can’t you?” did i fail to follow through? there’s no crying here... there’s no laughter here... there’s no dying here... there’s no silence!

in the night i watched you run your fingers red i remember what i heard your father said: “i’m the wrong child, undesired i’ll always be on the wrong side, have i chosen wrong for me?” i will pray for you i will pray for you there’s a baseline (noise and rhymes), we make a home throw the empire, will you try? you’d rather run. “will you help me?” said your brother, late one night “on the wrong side, i’ve been trying all my life!” i will pray for you i will pray for you on the wrong side, lift your eyes! you’ll always be on the wrong side, with no lies or mouths to feed. you’re the lone child undesired you’ll always be on the wrong side undefined but always free i will pray for you i will pray for you
5.
i saw sparks and when you offered felt my skin turn into dust cracked that night for what? you fought me. i can’t get the story right. started out but if you want this tear apart and take my soul darling, i’d be fighting for you if i weren’t fighting off myself slow this down, i want to stop you tear my hair out from the root why have love if all i offered was less than he ever could? i saw sparks and when you found us... why have love if all i offered... tear my heart out from the root?

This Time 04:11
say you won’t for the last time i’ve had my way for the last time oh, Father, don’t leave me for the last time! oh, Father, don’t leave me in the wrong time! i was wrong this time i was wrong this time i was wrong this time i was wrong this time i was wrong this time i was wrong this time save me now before i go... and i would be a prophet if i could get out my head (and i would be a prophet if i could get out bed) and if and if and if and if and if and if i failed well, i am just a poor man in a gilded, golden world! and would and would and would it be too late? my life, my love, my rights, my wrongs, my reeling in your face and should and should and should it be too late wrong steps, wrong life, wrong rights, wrong ways, i’ve had my fill today and if and if and if and if and if and if i failed well, i am just a poor man in a gilded, golden world! and would and would and would it be too late? my life, my love, my rights, my wrongs, my reeling in your face i tried, i tried, i tried, i tried, i tried, i tried my best i gave myself! i gave myself! i gave myself! i gave myself! i gave myself!
