Track Name: Flames
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
Track Name: Prison Train
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
Track Name: Salesman of Death
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
Track Name: What She Does
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
Track Name: A Place to Rest
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
