1. Wolves (3:38)
Light up the torches and wake up the King
The smoke you've ignored is a flame you can't contain

We circle the walls and claw at the dirt
We growl from our guts and howl until it hurts

I told her “come with me
And I can take you from this place now
Somewhere these roads all go
A place so we can start again”
I grabbed her hand and pulled her close
She looked at me and said
“Hey I don't even know your name”

“But are you ready to explode?
Like a tiger in a circus?
Cracking whips are all I know
And searching for a sense of purpose”

We are the wolves at the gates
Our numbers growing every day, yeah
But you can't fight us all no
No you can't fight
We are the wolves at the wall
We break in like a waterfall, yeah
But you can't fight us all no
No you can't fight




The water is breaching the walls of the dam
Trampling dreams in a rush to higher land

Are you ready to explode
Like a tiger in a circus?
This cage is all I've ever known
But now you've given me a purpose

We are the wolves at the gates
Our numbers growing every day, yeah
But you can't fight us all no
No you can't fight
We are the wolves at the wall
We break in like a waterfall, yeah
But you can't fight us all no
We are not that we are

Roaming in numbers and chasing the scent
Circling in for the kill
And you are the winter, the long discontent
We won't stop till we've had our fill

Roaming in numbers and chasing the scent
(We are the wolves)
Circling in for the kill
(We are the wolves)
And you are the winter, the long discontent
(We are the wolves)
We won't stop till we've had our fill

We are the wolves
We are the wolves
We are the wolves
2. House on Fire (3:15)
I can see the storms in her eyes now
I'm falling overboard in the waves
In over my head and she's a high tide
That keeps pushing me away
I thought that we would build this together
But everything I touch just seems to break
Am I your sail or your anchor?
Am I the calm or the hurricane?

I feel the ground start to shake
I hear a voice shouting "No"
But there is no fucking way
I'd leave you

So I'll just hold you like a hand grenade
You touch me like a razor blade
I wish there was some other way right now, oh oh
Like a house on fire we're up in flames
I'd burn here if that's what it takes
To let you know I won't let go of you, oh oh

But is the soundtrack to our lives
The bang of a slamming door
What happens when we all start to feel like
Nothing matters anymore
Every day like a chambered round, a trigger pulled
A hammer click, a breath we hold
A world outside I can't control
No matter what I do

So I'll just hold you like a hand grenade
You touch me like a razor blade
I wish there was some other way right now, oh oh
Like a house on fire we're up in flames
I'd burn here if that's what it takes
To let you know I won't let go of you, oh oh

How is it a thing
That we just wanna hurt each other
I'm waiting out the rain
'Cause life is gonna rain forever
Someday you will learn
That all I ever did was for you
And I would do it all again
I would do it all again

'Til then I'll hold you like a hand grenade
You touch me like a razor blade
I wish there was some other way right now, oh oh
Like a house on fire we're up in flames
I'd burn here if that's what it takes
To let you know I won't let go of you, oh oh

Of you (oh oh)
Of you (oh oh)
Of you (oh oh)
Of you
3. The Violence (3:49)
Dancing on the crumbling precipice
The rocks are coming loose just at the edge
Are we laughing? Are we crying?
Are we drowning? Are we dead?
Or is it all a dream?

The bombs are getting closer everyday
"That can never happen here" we used to say
Have these wars come to our doorstep?
Has this moment finally come?
Or is it all a dream?

Are we not good enough?
Are we not brave enough?
Is the violence in our nature
Just the image of our maker?
Are we not good enough?
Are we not brave enough?
To become something greater
Than the violence in our nature?
Are we not good enough
Or is it all a dream?

To a predetermined fate are we condemned
Or maybe we're a book without an end
We're not stories, we're not actors
We're awake and in control
And this is not a dream

So can we break this mold
And set in motion something new
Forgetting what we know
An evolution overdue
Fight the current
Pull the ripcord
Get away!

Are we not good enough?
Are we not brave enough?
Is the violence in our nature
Just the image of our maker?
Are we not good enough?
Are we not brave enough?
To become something greater
Than the violence in our nature?
Are we not good, good enough?

We travel back to what we take
We need a storm, let's pray for rain now
To wash these roads away
Let's get off track and wander far
Same roads lead to same destinations
Follow nothing but your heart
We're talking in our sleep
And sleeping through our lives
We dream of the places where we never die
We step from our shadows and into the light

Are we not good enough?
Are we not brave enough?
Is the violence in our nature
Just the image of our maker?
Are we not good enough?
Are we not brave enough?
To become something greater
Than the violence in our nature?
Are we not good enough?
Are we not brave enough?
Are we not good, good enough?
Or was it all a dream?
4. Welcome to the Breakdown (3:03)
All hail, the jester has landed
In flyover country he sings
Charmed like a snake in a basket
Should be curled up and ready to spring
We're raising our cross just to burn it
The clergy are selling their souls
Clearing a path, ignoring the facts
Intoxicated by the throne

We'll be standing here holding our ground, come what may
Like a ghost haunts from beyond the grave

Welcome to the breakdown
Welcome to the end of the road
Welcome to the breakdown
We've got nowhere else to go

When we all go deaf in the chamber of echoes
Cheering the missile parade
Agreeing to let all the banks rob the people
Together we circle the drain

We'll be standing here holding our ground, come what may
Like a ghost haunts from beyond the grave

Welcome to the breakdown
Welcome to the end of the road
Welcome to the breakdown
We've got nowhere else to go

Welcome to the breakdown
Welcome to the end of the road
This is a breakdown
And we've got nowhere else to go

It’s a game, you’ve been played
It’s a flock, you’re the sheep
It’s a pied-piper song that has lulled you to sleep
It’s a lie and you fell for it - hook, line, and sinker
A hand that you shook that then gave you the finger
A fraud and a fake, a cowardly king
A lie to your face, but you still kiss the ring
This is the breakdown, this is the breakdown
This is the breakdown!
Standing here holding our ground, come what may
Like a ghost haunts from beyond the grave

Welcome to the breakdown
Welcome to the end of the road
This is a breakdown
And we've got nowhere else to go

Welcome to the breakdown
Welcome to the end of the road
This is a breakdown
And we've got nowhere else to go
It's not much, but this is home
And there's nowhere else to go
5. Far from Perfect (3:33)
Keeping up appearances, don't break now
We're buckled from the weight
Pretend to laugh, but don't laugh too loud

Do you feel the pressure building?
The anger spilling out now
Meanwhile, the cracks have formed on the masks we've worn up 'til now

We are far from perfect
But perfect as we are
We are bruised, we are broken
But we are goddamn works of art
Works of art

Pieces of our hearts are gravitating together but
Before we could be part of this mosaic

We had to break apart like glass
We're falling faster than stars
Meanwhile, the cracks have formed on the masks we've worn up 'til now
Take a look
We are far from perfect
But perfect as we are
We are bruised, we are broken
But we are goddamn works of art

With every color, we shine!
A tapestry of scars!
Without regret we're
Growing stronger and moving onward
Finding right ways, despite the wrong ones
We're clearing paths, we're locked by storms
We're finding the beauty
In what you've ignored

We are far from perfect
But perfect as we are
We are far from perfect
We're perfect as we are
We are bruised, we are broken
But we are goddamn works of art
Yeah, we are perfect as we are
Perfect as we are
6. Bullshit (4:12)
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh

Thank you for your silence, your continuing compliance
It's your buried head so deep in sand that ushered in the virus
(Oh, no)
Please don't lift a finger
Don't get up, just sit right there (Oh, no)
Don't worry about the thoughts
Inside your pretty little head

So we stick to the script and recite your lines
Don't break from the character, just keep it inside

But this is bullshit (Bullshit)
It's finally coming into focus (Focus)
You're lying and I think you know it
But you're too afraid to face the storm you helped create
Yeah, this is bullshit (Bullshit)
And did you think I wouldn't notice? (Notice)
Cracks in your theory are showing like a broken vase
Your grip around me dissipates

And we are separated only by divisions and the walls that we create
(And we are separated only by divisions and the walls that we create)
But we are more alike than different when we stop and take a minute face to face
(But we are more alike than different when we stop and take a minute face to face)
They say we're divided
And we are conquered
Yeah, but our enemies have never been each other, no

'Cause this is bullshit (Bullshit)
It's finally coming into focus (Focus)
You're lying and I think you know it
But you're too afraid to face the storm you helped create
Yeah, this is bullshit (Bullshit)
And did you think I wouldn't notice? (Notice)
Cracks in your theory are showing like a broken vase
Your grip around me dissipates

So we scale the walls and fire escapes
A wheat paste brush and cans of paint
To cover up your walls with something new
'Cause we all know
Your signs say we're not good enough
Not cute enough, not smart enough
Not worth your love, out with the old
And in with something new
(Bullshit, it's coming around
But this is bullshit, it's not slowing down
This is bullshit, and it always was
And this is bullshit, and you know it)

Bullshit, not sorry to say
But this is bullshit, you've been lying to me
Bullshit, and it always was
And you know, and you know, and you know, and you know

That this is bullshit coming right at you
Bullshit coming home to roost
Bullshit and you're too afraid
To face the storm you helped create
This is bullshit
This is bullshit
Bullshit and you're too afraid
To face the storm you helped create
7. Politics Love (4:09)
I hear your voice in the wind
It follows me, it cuts right through the noise
As we spin on dance floors made of ice
So rest your hand in mine
Steady now, ignore the sound
Of breaking lines
The crack beneath our feet as time runs out

Each night like a white noise frequency
Broadcast the waves, I tune them out
Clear signs outlined, but I couldn't see
What I see now

I should've said something to you
When I saw you walk away
Instead, I did nothing
And now
You're gone and it's too late
So we board up the windows we used to look through
I should've said something
Yeah, I should've said something to you

Like buried seeds in the ground
Invisible, but growing underneath
Pushing out
Now tangled in the vine, I hear the sound

Heartbeats from a world so far away
The distant drums, I tune them out
Each night before I fall asleep
I hear them loud

I should've said something to you
When I saw you walk away
Instead, I did nothing
And now
You're gone and it's too late
So we board up the windows we used to look through
I should've said something
Yeah, I should've said something to you

Whoa oh oh oh
Whoa oh oh oh
Whoa oh oh oh
Whoa oh oh oh

I should've said something
Yeah, I should've said something
So we board up the windows we used to look through
I should've said something
I should've said something
I should've said something
Yeah, I should've said something to you
To you
8. Parts Per Million (3:41)
There's something wrong with the words that we're not sayin'
And the silence we're creatin'
Like a ghost note symphony
There's something wrong and the temperature is risin'
Ignoring every siren
As we're marching towards the cliff

But these are choices that we don't have to make
Block out the voices
'Cause they have led you astray
What I've been trying to say to you is that

There's something in the water
There must be something in the air
Just 'cause I can't put my finger on it
It doesn't mean that - that it's not there

Yeah, we are all turned on
But then we all tuned out
As we are hypnotized by the sparkling lies
We fall under their spell

But don't forget that these are choices (choices)
That we don't have to make
So many voices (voices)
That have led us astray
We can't keep anything down
The room is spinning around

There must be something in the water
Yeah, there's something in the air
Just 'cause I can't put my finger on it
It doesn't mean that - that it's not there

You are the grains of sand
That slip through my hands again
And we are the hourglass
Love like a flame that can't be held
Somewhere beyond the lives we burn
Lies the point of no return
Like the sand within an hourglass

But there is something odd!
But there is something odd!

But there is something in your eyes
That shakes me back to life
And though I can't put my finger on it
Now I know we're gonna be alright!

It's gonna be alright!
It's gonna be alright!

'Cause there is something in the water
Yeah, there is something in the water
In this life
We sink or swim or just float
We all die
Yeah, but did we live at all?
9. Morning Amerika (3:20)
Stand by to switch on
We fire out all pistons
We're singing along
But no one is listening
From dusk until dawn
We stay up to carry the flame
And when it's all said and done
In these alternate endings
When nothing is love
But the stragglers and empties
We're sleeping it off
Just to wake up and start it again

So burn the statues to the ground
Start to lay your weapons down
Bound for glory on this street
But there's a bridge up overhead
Noise cancel, drown the signal out
Change channels, manufactured doubt
When the only thing we'll fight for every day
Is a better seat on a crashing...
Plain to see, but hard to breathe
The streets are full of tumbleweeds

And now it's morning in the streets of Amerika
But we don't go outside anymore
The radio blasts hysteria
While the television's sideways on the floor

Under moonlit skies and surveillance
As we cheer from the stands in the stadiums
On a jumbotron we all sing along to escape
Once we were the lighthouse
To the world's most desperate ships
But what we became was a towering flame
Leading the moth right into it
Now we are waking up to the phone lines cut

'Cause it's morning in the streets of Amerika
And we don't go outside anymore
The radio blasts hysteria
While the television's sideways on the floor

With a teleprompter in our faces
Yeah, we don't even know what we're saying
Car that's slowly crashing
And we can't look away
Parading to the edge of the cliff now
We're trying to figure out how to get down
While the night is fast approaching
Would we even recognize our former lives in this artificial light?
Morning in the streets of Amerika
But we don't go outside anymore
There's something wrong with the stereo
And the television's sideways
We're mourning in the streets of Amerika
Mourning in the streets of Amerika
We're mourning in the streets of Amerika
Mourning in the streets of Amerika
10. How Many Walls (3:51)
How many walls can you put up?
How many guns 'til you feel safe?
How many times can we watch this story over, and over, and over again?
And how many years have we wasted counting the lies that we've been fed?
There's something to change
We have waited over, and over, and over again

I'm entertained by the monkey on your back
Can we still call it a joke if no one laughs?
It's either going up in smoke around me, or according to plan
A bittersweet disaster melting over, and over again

How many walls can you put up?
How many guns 'til you feel safe?
How many times can we watch this story over, and over, and over again?
How many years have we wasted counting the lies that we've been fed?
There's something to change
We have waited over, and over, and over again

Chasing our own tail
The more we learn, the less we know
As the monsters lost in history
Are now acting very tough
As we bow down
Roll up the carpet, red as rose
We should have known

How many walls can you put up?
How many guns 'til you feel safe?
How many times can we watch this story over, and over, and over again?
How many years have we wasted counting the lies that we've been fed?
There's something to change, we have waited
Over, and over, and over, and over again

How many walls?
And how many guns?
How many times?
Over, and over, and over again
Over, and over, and over again

And how many lives have been wasted?
How many bodies laid to rest?
Sick of the lies, the same old stories
Over, and over, and over, and over
Over, and over, and over, and over
Again!
11. Miracle (3:40)
We scan the empty sky
Always without success
We're lighting signal fires
And spelling "SOS"
We stare at broken clocks
The truth comes twice a day
While every second just slips away

Are you gonna wait here for a sign to let you know now?
Are you gonna to sit there paralyzed by what you've seen?
Or are you gonna finally grip the wheel? I think you know how
This is more than you expected it to be

Don't wait for a miracle
To tumble from the sky
To part the seas around you
Or turn water into wine
Don't wait for a miracle
The world is passing by
The walls, that will surround you
Are only in your mind

The stage is set
And the curtains pulled
Ready or not, it's time, on with the show
And now the crowds have grown impatient
And the train has left the station
And the candles you are lighting in the dark will fade away

So what what are you waiting for, a sign to let you know now?
Are you going to sit there paralyzed by what you've seen?
Or are you gonna finally grip the wheel? I think you know how
Are you gonna throw it all away?

Don't wait for a miracle
To tumble from the sky
To part the seas around you
Or turn water into wine
Don't wait for a miracle
The world is passing by
The walls, that will surround you
Are only in your mind

When the weights we carry breaks us, we're tempted to stay down
But every road to recovery starts at the breakdown

But we don't need miracles
To tumble from the sky
To part the seas around us
Or turn water into wine
'Cause we are the miracles
We happen all the time
We're not scared of what surrounds us
We're not waiting for a sign

We are the miracles
We are the miracles
We are the miracles
