Track Name: Murmur
Moments like this make me long for the road
Is it running way, is it just letting go?
Surrounded by life but I'm feeling unknown
Beaten and tired and I cannot go home
Over and over again
I stare at the sky but I can't make it rain
Everything here stays the same
Around and around hoping something will change
Is this all I get is there no second chance
Got a head full of weather and two empty hands
Streetlights blink on divide us from the land
The older I get the less I understand
I've got to get out of here
I've got to get out of here
Track Name: Slouching Towards Bethlehem
Take these hands small and white
Press the beads between them pray with all your might
Cast the stones, second sight will not light a candle for the world's dark night
Empty eye heart of stone
Raise a graven image - see how much we've grown
Fervent prayers to atone
Will not cleanse the earth of all the seeds we've sown
People weep, people moan at the altar of a god that crumbled long ago
This rough beast we appease turns his face away and brings us to our knees
Clutch at straws holding fast, clinging to a way of life that cannot last
Hollow man, men of glass - if we don't learn then we're damned to repeat the past
