Track Name: Ray
We didn't mean to start the fire
Then it just kept climbing higher
It burned all night and by the dawn
Half the city was gone
The flames and smoke engulfed the sky
Surrounding towns could not survive
The ferocious hunger of the blaze
Oh will we be saved

I always knew this day would come
we've so much practice on the run
finding warmth in each others arms
protected, free and safe from harm
and if the sun should forget to shine
you know i think that we'd be just fine
living on the edge of the night
forever chasing rays of light
and if we never see another day
we won't descend into a hopeless haze
because we've made ourselves a little home
gazing out into the unknown

Even if the sun drowns
I'll never let you down
if all you see are black clouds
I'll turn your faith around
even if the rays die
we'll make our own sunlight
through the love we've made
we'll see another day
the spotlights came and we fled
and though for now we've spread
far across state lines
our love still brightly shines

And if the sun should forget to shine
you know i think that we'd be just fine
living on the edge of the night
forever chasing rays of light
and if we never see another day
we won't descend into a hopeless haze
because we've made ourselves a little home
gazing out into the unknown
the little voice inside of my head
that thinks were all just better off dead
is fatalistic and flawed at best
so I have put all of these thoughts to rest

Turn your self around
we won't make a sound
just give me your hand
soon we'll understand
all the selfish ways
we've wasted our days
to give ourselves away
or so we'd like to say

Even if the sun drowns
I'll never let you down
if all you see are black clouds
I'll turn your faith around
even if it takes all year
i want you to have no fear
or any trace of doubt
that we will see this out
even if the rays die
we'll make our own sunlight
through the love we've made
we'll see another day
Track Name: Give Up Your Bones
give us your bones
give us your bones tonight
give up your home
give up without a fight
off with his head
go join the dead tonight
sleep soft in bed
safe and sound without a fright
/dig deep below
deep down below the soil
we'll see it grow
til it begins to spoil
I'll be alone
I'll be alone tonight
in the unknown
no one's quite sure what is right/
check for a pulse
see if he's still alive
cowards and ghosts
those who are left to die
heavenly host
heaven is closed tonight
head for the coast
fires burning out of sight
give up your bones
give up your bones tonight
give up your home
give up without a fight
bring out your dead
tears will be shed tonight
sing fear and dread
see if he's still alive
flowers and toasts
heres to the morning light
cowards and ghosts
heaven is closed tonight
