Track Name: Safe Here
Safe Here

Throw off pretense, you're safe here
I know you're scared, you're safe here
So be who you are, you're safe here
In the back of the club, you're safe here

Make this place warm for it
Make this place warm for it
Make this place for a gun that is peaceful

We cannot see
What lies ahead but still we travel
We cannot see
But there's nothing to fear
Stay near, you're safe here

In all of your ugliness, you're safe here
In all of your sexy too, you're safe here
So be who you are, you're safe here
In the back of the club, you're safe here

Make this place warm for it
Make this place warm for it
Make this place for a gun that is peaceful

We cannot see
What lies ahead but still we travel
We cannot see
But there's nothing to fear
Stay near, you're safe

Been searching for a place like this
Your past forgiven, history dismissed
So if somehow it's the way that you feel
Take these words, use them as your shield

We cannot see
What lies ahead but still we travel
We cannot see
But there's nothing to fear
Stay near, you're safe here
Track Name: My Defense
My Defense

If at first you don't succeed
Just give up, get on your knees
'Cause for what you did to me you deserve to bleed

Man I'm just too small to fight
I count the fractures every night
And I stand right here and bite my silent tongue

This is my defense
This is my defense
I wish I had an army
I wish I had more friends

Your house is a bigger house
And in your bank a big account
You have all the finest things and that's fine by me

But now you've got a bigger mouth
You chew your friends and spit them out
And that's not fine, it never was, never will be

This is my defense
This is my defense
I wish I had an army
I wish I had more friends

I will throw a party in your honor and invite your friends
Return the favor that you lent
And I'll spike the punch with poison

This is my defense
This is my defense
I wish I had an army
I wish I had more friends
I'm happy and content to happy
Track Name: Saved Your Life
Dear friend when you said
That you've been dropping bombs on your own head
It made me sad 'cause you're a man
And you've got your own blood on your own hands

What you stole, what you took
Could break a heart and fill a book
The story a tragedy
And your memory will always be...

I saved your like a hundred times
Is this all I get?
It's a total waste of time
I saved your life, I tried to share
Now I don't even care
It's a total waste of time

Forces in, the good guys win
But your enemy it was within
It made me sad, you were a man
'Til you had your own blood on your own hands

I saved your like a hundred times
Is this all I get?
It's a total waste of time
I saved your life, I tried to share
Now I don't even care
It's a total waste of time

I saw the light from the lawn
You were out walking three in the morn'
The flashing came, a siren wail
And I have never seen skin so pale
Track Name: Watch For Snakes
Watch For Snakes

Under rocks
In the trees
Anywhere that there's belief
You're manufacturing truth for the public tooth
You dressed up in disguise
To divert all the eyes
Not a one was the wise to your polished lies

Watch for snakes
They bite heals
The draw blood
Liquid meals
Watch for snakes
Watch for snakes
Just a sting
Just a lie
Just a dream
Watch for snakes

I grew up in a place where they smiled to your face
But in the background I heard conversations
I believe that when I die
I'll find relief in the sky
To my left, to my right
I'll see angels fly

Watch for snakes
They bite heals
The draw blood
Liquid meals
Watch for snakes
Watch for snakes
Just a sting
Just a lie
Just a dream
Watch for snakes

Don't tell me how it was
Tell me how it's gonna be
Watch for snakes

Under rocks
In the trees
Anywhere that there's belief
Keep an eye out for snakes now that you're awake
I grew up in a place where they lied to my face
But in the background I heard...

Watch for snakes
Track Name: Come Down To DC
Come Down To DC

Why don't you come down?
Come down to DC
Come down to see me
Why don't you come down?

Just take the bus down
Down to Chinatown
I swear I'll come 'round
And take you away

Let's take a ride, me and you
Crash the car
A suicide, me and you
Arm in arm
Let's take the time, me and you
To get outta this place
I'm dying to see your face
I'm dying to see you

And so the day breaks
Breaks down beneath us
We will just float up
'Cause we have no care

Leave all your things home
You will not need them
Because where we're going
Your pennies are gold

Let's take a ride, me and you
Crash the car
A suicide, me and you
Arm in arm
Let's take the time, me and you
To get outta this place
I'm dying to see your face
I'm dying to see you
