Flames 04:26
Where clouds of ash steal the air Down fall the walls everywhere Hearing the screams Tearing the seams Flames fueled by your love Completely light your way back down to me And fight all you want but you cannot put out This fire once it started Crawl on the floor no way out Oh the fire roars hear me shout Smoke burns my eyes Reach for your life

Prison Train 05:43
Well he looked in the mirror As he rode down the line Black tie he adjusted Strapped a holster to his side His clothes worn from justice On his breath a hint of rye He's the hound on the trail The scent of blood never hides In his wake hang the shackles Of the men who've run before He's trampled out the vintage Where the grapes of wrath are stored He won't wait for a verdict He's the right hand of the lord Like a preacher with no mercy At the left hand of the Lord On the thundering rails Beds are made of nails Where the fire never fails On the prison train And your bonds so tight That your hands turn white In the never ending night Of the prison train On his pale horse he's riding Smith and Wesson in his hand The urge burns through his fingers With lead and smoke at his command On your head there lies a bounty Blood and bondage it demands There's no alibi for cowards Drink your justice like a man On the thundering rails Beds are made of nails Where the fire never fails On the prison train And your bonds so tight That your hands turn white In the never ending night Of the prison train Now you're hanging in the shackles Like the ones who've come before He's not waiting for a verdict He's the left hand of the Lord

Panning the crowd sifting for pain For glittering eyes ready to rain Then alone you appear My first volunteer You thought you struck gold but instead sold your soul Oh take a deep breath You just put your trust in the salesman of death Oh hear what I said You just put your trust in the salesman of death Left crumbs on the trail you grab as we tread At night where you lie I steal back the bread You're the low man that lies On the totem I climb Like moss you'll be thrown from this old rolling stone Oh take a deep breath You just put your trust in the salesman of death Oh hear what I said You just put your trust in the salesman of death When the blindfold comes off will you sink in despair? Hang your head in your hands or close them in prayer? Once you thought you were saved Now you're sure you're enslaved There's no one to blame cause you've locked your own chains Oh take a deep breath You just put your trust in the salesman of death Oh hear what I said You just put your trust in the salesman of death

Light ignites as she is walking Voyeurs stare her down Holds her head above their whispers Wears them like a crown And she does what she does Doesn't care just because And she does what she does All in spite of Shadows follow where she's going Watching through a lens Deepest secrets cameras rolling Let the whole world in And she does what she does Doesn't care just because And she does what she does All in spite of When she speaks Headlines will follow When she moves Foundations will tremble When she cries She's the only one hurting And everyone told her so Everyone told her so And she does what she does Doesn't care just because And she does what she does Doesn't care just because And she does what she does All in spite of

Can I find a place to rest my head? Can I find a place to rest my head? Cause I'm tired of feeling lonely Still baby I can't come home to you Can I find a place to close my eyes? Can I find a place to close my eyes? Cause I see where I'm headed Still baby I can't come home to you Running from the morning Deep into the night Shadows growing smaller Shelter out of sight I'm wide awake the dawn will break To swallow me again Can I find a place to rest my head? Can I find a place to call my own? Can I find a place to call my own? I don't know where I'm going Still baby I don't belong to you
