Submitted by level Rousseau
1. Just as the Day Was Drowning (4:13)
For weeks now, you run and you talked in your sleep
You shook me awake to announce, you're never alone

Spring was confusing, a little bit scary
Summer was much of the same
By Winter you run with the nights, never came home

For weeks now, run and you talked in your sleep
You shook me awake to announce, you're never alone

Spring was confusing, a little bit scary
Summer was much of the same
By Winter you run with the nights, never came home

Scream bloody murder, the mountains are listening
(?) has left you for dead, bloody
How can you sleep when you can't pull the teeth from your eyes

Scream bloody murder, the mountains are listening
(?) has left you for dead, bloody
How can you sleep when you can't pull the teeth from your eyes

Scream bloody murder, the mountains are listening
(?) has left you for dead, bloody
How can you sleep when you can't pull the teeth from your eyes

For weeks now, you run and you talked in your sleep
You shook me awake to announce, you're never alone

Spring was confusing, a little bit scary
Summer was much of the same
By Winter you run with the nights, never came home
2. Hands Up (2:59)
Stampede, stampede

Hands up, hands up, hands up
Like the people beside you, hands up
Hands up, hands up, hands up
Like the people beside you, hands up

Stampede, stampede

Hands up, hands up, hands up
Like the people beside you, hands up
Hands up, hands up, hands up
Like the people beside you, hands up

She's got a fever, he's got a cold
Look at the family, it's still growing old
Hands up, hands up, hands up
Like the people beside you, hands up

He's not prepared for this
She's not prepared for this
I'm not prepared for this
We're not prepared for this

Hands up, hands up, hands up
Like the people beside you, hands up
He's got a fever, she's got a cold
Look at the family, it's still growing old

Hands up, hands up, hands up
Like the people beside you, hands up

He's not prepared for this
She's not prepared for this
I'm not prepared for this
We're not prepared for this

Stampede, stampede
3. Shields (3:07)
What could go wrong I can't count the number of ways
You could be mauled or burned for starters
You could still drown in knee deep waters
That's enough to hold up and hide in this cave

What could go wrong I can't count the number of ways
You could be struck by lightening walking
Look at the cross and your soul starts talking
Nothing prepares you for the freeze that's coming

I won't dare, I won't dare
I think I feel a wicked breeze blowing
I won't dare, I won't dare
Nothing prepares you for the freeze that's coming

I won't dare, I won't dare
I think I feel a wicked breeze blowing
I won't dare, I won't dare
Nothing prepares you for the freeze that's coming

Lights out and draw the curtains
I got the means
Wait patiently
I won't dare, I won't dare

Wait patiently

Nothing prepares you for the breeze that's coming

I won't care
I won't care

I think I feel a wickid breeze blowing

I won't dare
I won't dare

Lie down and drown your good dreams
I've got the means

I won't dare
I won't dare

That's enough to hold up and hide in the shade

Lie down and drown your good dreams
Wait patiently
4. Grounds For Divorce (5:30)
I heard he dabbled into witchcraft, I heard occult
Oh, they’re pretty much the same
I guess he was adopted, or raised by wolves
That’s ridiculous to say

I heard he pulled over, cursed the town
Had the touch, so nothing grew
I heard that too, it's true

That tonight

I heard he spoke in tongues, not crazy
I heard he was a refugee
I heard he was a monster, a scary ghost
Oh you know there’s no such thing

I heard he pulled over, cursed the town
Had the touch, so nothing grew
I heard that too, it's true

That tonight

We're left with some stories and notes
But this is the part that will hurt
And nobody learned
And now nothing grows here

Always a child, remarkable men
Then one day he’d had it, and blew off his head
He filled up his lungs, and he pulled in his hair
And he curled up his lips and he fell
You'll never know how sorry you'll be

I heard he dabbled into witchcraft, I heard occult
Oh, they’re pretty much the same
I guess he was adopted, or raised by wolves
That’s ridiculous to say

I heard he pulled over, cursed the town
Had the touch, so nothing grew
I heard that too, it's true

That tonight

We're left with some stories and notes
But this is the part that will hurt
And nobody learned
And now nothing grows

Always a child, remarkable men
Then one day he’d had it, and blew off his head
He filled up his lungs and he pulled in his hair
And he curled up his lips and he fell
You'll never know how sorry you'll be

(?)
You swear they were dead
(?)
Your harvest will crumble
Your fields will now follow for years
And nothing will grow

People will speak of it once in a while
His mansion would
(?)
And nothing will grow

6. Start Your Digging (4:05)
How many people are needed to turn on this life
How many people, how many people
Everyone's crying, nobodies breathing
Too scared to listen to what they've been thinking
How many people are needed to turn on this life

Oh no, they ain't your baby, you just turn them away 'cause
We got no guarantees except for being cold
Oh no, they ain't your people, you just turn them away 'cause
We got no guarantees except for being cold

How many people are needed to turn on this life
How many people, how many people
Everyone's crying, nobodies breathing
Too scared to listen to what they've been thinking
How many people are needed to turn on this life

Oh no, they ain't your baby, you just turn them away 'cause
We got no guarantees except for being cold
Oh no, they ain't your people, you just turn them away 'cause
We got no guarantees except for being cold

Have the wits, have the spite
Hopefully everything works out just fine
Grab the bottle it's not even wine
It's plentifully seasoned with evil, oh no

Grab a shovel and start your digging, men
Grab a shovel and start your digging, men
Only got six feet to go
7. I'll Give You Something to Cry About (9:09)
It's not like it used to be, ancient history
Why are we throwing those stones
Cold sweat and blistering, sounds like a plea to me
Don't just go throwing your words, save your breath and be still
Save your breath and be still

No other drummers have went quite this dark
There's still light but you can't close the _________
You won't know if you're coming in light 'til your ship has arrived

Relish this moment, 'til death do us part
I want answers before it's too late
Take your time old man, take your time
Take your time old man, take your time
These vultures are happy to wait

Savor the sympathy, one final victory_________
Bring me ____________, look it's not hard to find
Scariness under your bed, save your breath and be still
Save your breath and be still

No other drummers have went quite this dark
There's still light but you can't close the ________
You won't know if you're coming in light til your ship has arrived

Relish this moment, 'til death do us part
I want answers before it's too late
Take your time old man
These vultures are happy to wait

I'd like to forgive and forget, but I can't
It's just one of the ways that I'm petty
I'll leave you to carry this weight, to burden the rest of your days
I'll leave you to carry this weight, all alone
And no single regret to the grave

It's not like it used to be, ancient history
Why are we throwing those stones
Cold sweat and blistering, sounds like a plea to me
Don't just go throwing your words, save your breath and be still
Save your breath and be still

No other drummers have went quite this dark
There's still light but you can't close the ________
You won't know if you're coming in light 'til your ship has arrived

Relish this moment, 'til death do us part
I want answers before it's too late
Take your time old man
These vultures are happy to wait
