These Iron Bones tracks

Lyrics


1. THESE IRON BONES

Be still your turning soul
Dark eyes burning cold
What lies have I been told?
Tales from a distant shore
Our time has come today
Sharp thoughts
But nothing that I can say
There is no easy way
And I hear the voices call...

We're gonna get you
No matter where you turn

These iron bones
Once flown by drones
Now overthrown
Shall guide us home

This ending is begun
No time and gravity come undone
We'll sail into the sun
Tales from a distant shore
I watched your body die
No time to savor the long goodbye
Defective by design
And I hear the voices call...

We're gonna get you
No matter where you turn

These iron bones
Once flown by drones
Now overthrown
Please tell me why
You turn to stone
Your thoughts unknown
These iron bones
Shall never die

We're gonna get you
No matter where you turn
We're gonna get you
No matter where you burn

These iron bones
Once flown by drones
Now overthrown
Please tell me why
You turn to stone
Your thoughts unknown
These iron bones
Shall never die




2. ONE WAY TOWN

This is a story of a
Roller coaster child
In the city living
Where there once was wild (wild)
I'm not the enemy
Not defending thee
The place where they're sending me
Is such a long way down, down, down

You know you turn the other way
In a one way town
Put your eye to the sky
Plant your feet into the ground
What's the word
Bright as the sun in your eyes
You left a tear in the dust
But you never said goodbye

You say that you're quitting
But you're still gonna do it
Long song skipping on
The record in your head (head)
You say that you're leaving
But you're walking in circles
Running from a memory
That you wanna forget

You know you look the other way
In a one way town
Put your eye to the sky
Plant your feet into the ground
We'll find a world
A place where the light never dies
You left a tear in the dust
But you never said goodbye

And it's a story of a
Roller coaster town
Well you can touch the top of the sky
But then you're gonna come down, down

Oo, you try to run away
In a one way town
Put your eye to the sky
Plant your feet into the ground
You found a world
A place where the light never dies
You left a tear in the dust
But you never said goodbye

Cause we're the other way
In a one way town
You left a tear in the dust
But you never settled down
Another world
Bright as the sun in your eyes
You left a tear in the dust
Run away, goodbye




3. DREGS (ACOUSTIC)

Yaaaaiiiii!

Awake in the dark
Dreaming of day
Skating my life away
On impossible ice, but I didn't know
Why do I hate me so?
Burn into ash, ash into dust
Aren't these the gods we trust?
Gone out of their minds
In for the kill
But I can remember still...

Days gone by
Welcome to the dregs of my mind
Right on time
Welcome to the dregs of my mind
Welcome to the dregs of my mind
Welcome to the dregs of my mind

Thought of a lie, and
Thought of a bomb
Thought if I played along
That I might slip away
And out on my own
Guess that I should've known
As bullets divide flesh of the sky
Sunlight goes bleeding by
Gone out of their minds
In for the kill
But I can remember still...

Days gone by
Welcome to the dregs of my mind
Right on time
Welcome to the dregs of my mind
Welcome to the dregs of my mind
Welcome to the dregs of my mind

Burn into ash, ash into dust
Aren't these the gods we trust?
Dreaming awake
What can I do?
What ever happened to...
Days gone by?
Welcome to the dregs of my mind
Right on time
Welcome to the dregs of my mind
Welcome to the dregs of my mind
Welcome to the dregs of my mind
