Track Name: Stories (Single)
In the ashes of the bridges you've burned,
There's a flower still gripping the earth.
If these ruins had something to say,
They'd tell me that I am to blame.
I've scraped up and bruised my knees,
from begging like a stray at your feet.
Now I'm breaking, I'm pulling apart,
With a bullet sent straight to your heart.

I'll fight like a lion this time,
Not the orphan you took from the cold.
Cut the wires and sever the cords,
I don't need them to breathe anymore.

There's a garden that's blooming inside,
And it's begging to breathe in the light.
I'm a ship that has chosen it's course,
And I'll keep it through wind and through storm.
And I know where I've thrown in my lot,
Like the gallows or the firing squad.
These are weapons on the tip of my tongue.
I've held my fire for far too long.

I'll fight like a lion this time,
Not the orphan you took from the cold.
Cut the wires and sever the cords,
I don't need them to breathe anymore.
I'm sick of just standing in line,
And watching my heroes all die.
I'm wiser and a little more bold,
My story just hasn't been told.
Track Name: Devil Dressed in White
Down here, she's a lamb in the den of lions.
All the heavens are called to silence,
As the blood soaks through the bed sheets.
A voice in her head is screaming,
"This is not how love should feel."

She sleeps now, to a lullabye of sirens,
And dreams about the day that she'll wed.
You slither like a serpent,
And coil on her bed.
This is not how love should feel.

So pray the darkness keeps you safe,
'Cause at the break of day.
I'll be coming for you.
So pray the devil keeps you safe,
'Cause at the break of day,
You'll get what's coming to you.

The wolves are circling,
As you drag yourself through the leaves,
Crying out for anyone.
But for blood spilled only comes more blood.
Track Name: The Glass Winter (Cassidy's Got The Blues Version)
All heroes die eventually.
The world is cold, it's heart and soul are slowly spinning gears.
And the worst to lose a child.
Beneath the ice are the vapors heaven and hell.

You're laid on these flowers,
For the fires to devour.
You disintegrate and you fade, and you fade.

A mother waits at the door,
Watching for a son, for a boy who won't be coming home.
And neither God, nor the devil are going to break the rules, going to rescue you.
The freeway is king tonight.

You're laid on these flowers,
For the fires to devour,
You disintegrate and you fade, and you fade.
You burn like a beacon to light the horizon,
The night as bright as day,
We're awake.

And the machine, it carries on.
It'll break, it will never pause.
Not for the tears of men or gods.
Not for the death of an only son.
