Hats Off to the Bull tracks

Lyrics

1. FACE TO THE FLOOR

To pick up the tip doesn't mean a lot
Fiddle inside your drugs
If we own the night, then spread it out
Or pack up without a clue

Well, cause by their own
And by default
Time to vamanos

Like your face being forced to the floor

I got a taste of the benefits
Five foot change
There's no better way to hash it out
So let's set up your time to bail

Well, cause now the cracks
Should we intervene?
I hold this albatross

Like your face being forced to the floor
When either way, you're way too close to it all

Pay up, never wait 'em out
Cover…me up, take it all
Take it all

You're
My
Last

Take it all the way…right back down

You
clueless
Blessed

Pay up, never take it all
Take it all

Like your face being forced to the floor
When either way, you're way too close to it all
Like your face being forced to the floor
Either way, you're way too close to it all

Too close to it all




2. SAME OLD TRIP

Censor, censor, realize
Censor, censor, no friend of mine
Time won't keep us anymore
It's the usefulness of letting go
Your perfect plan has come and gone
Like the nuclear centuries benefits

They say
You bought the same old trip
So innocent your'e out of reach
You bought the same old trip

Lawful, vengeful, awful, friendship, misfits
Bits of feelings, theiving, fits inside revealing
Time to censor, censor, realize
Censor, Censor, no friend of mine

You bought the same old trip
So innocent your'e out of reach
You bought the same old trip
Sigh of relief inside of a dream
You bought the same old
Censor, censor, realize
Censor, censor, paid to
Censor, censor, realize
Censor, censor, no friend of mine

You bought the same old trip
So innocent your'e out of reach
You bought the same old trip
Sigh of relief inside of a dream




3. RUSE

Sell me some love
Led by a ruse
Set up like a lens
That looks into rooms
Sees colors
Cast in a world
This roundabout path
Makes two rights and two wrongs
Till it hurts find me

Let's discover your emotions
We'll visualize that fevered side we lost

It's way too hard to pin us
Hard to pin us down
If you haven't felt that fire in a while
And its now-or-never lies
Just live a little more

Try climbing over any
Unfortunate you say
Never in this setting
Young freedom has its price and
We all bend these rules
So nervously

Let's discover your emotions
We'll visualize that fevered side we lost
Are we blinding those emotions
Will you decide defeat or find it all

Let's discover your emotions
We'll visualize that fevered side we lost
Are we blinding those emotions
Will you decide defeat or find it all




4. THE MEDLER

You had that nighttime confidence
Yet again
Like when you tear us all to bits
Yet again
If you really want advice here
You're too much like a wall
If you're gonna light those fires
We're all up in arms again

Well I don't belong here
Don't fit your style
Felt your left foot
Now meet my right

See now over this, you meddler
Feed off all the rest, you meddler
Talking so close, you bring to mind
No fun to be behaving
But you really lit a fire
All up in arms again
Why don't you feed off all the rest

Well, I don't belong here
Don't fit your style
Felt your left foot
Now meet my right

It's now or never
More difficult
Those midnight answers
And stray arrows

Never, never
Lean on you
Clever, clever
One on two
You're mine
Finite
Imagine this
It's sad
To say
It's simple
When still we want to watch

Well, I don't belong here
Don't fit your style
Felt your left foot
Now meet my right
It's now or never
More difficult
Those midnight answers
And stray arrows
I don't belong




5. PINATA

Well hell if I
Should decide
To give in more
A little effort
Well hell if I'm
So dead again
The will to fight
Replaced by lust for you

I'll ask my curious side
To follow you
To a bed of angels
Count out this wandering eye
Well lucky you
The devil made you look

I've never tried

Pulling you in
Looking at last
To find the answers
It's almost like
You're breaking my pinata
While I'm hinting at my lust for you

I'll ask my curious side
To follow you
To a bed of angels
Count out this wandering eye
Well lucky you
The devil made you look
To far into the abyss
No bed of angels
Mystified defines it best
The devil you look




6. ENVY

How will this pan out?
Search and wish, so loud
Keep a candle burning
To each his own should learn

Before I turn in envy, I learn through sorrow
I turn in envy and go... to the wall

See how the colors run?
And feel your Sunday rest
Give me a name, bring it in, some change is for the best
I may not win the race
I may not reach the top

Or I may not live your way;
It doesn't mean I'm stuck here
We may not fit the mold
Kind of going off
Well, the medicine inside takes a stronger hold

As we turn in envy, I learn through sorrow
I turn in envy and go... to the wall

Before I burn with envy, I learn through sorrow
I burn with envy and go... to the wall

To the wall




7. HATS OF THE BULL

All our needs put together
Don't bleed on their own
You paid for an eyeful
So behold the bull
Why can't I look up, out in the clearing
Tell me what's there below, end over end
While he's safe for the moment, guess what he's learning
He's never safe from the crowd

So hats off to the bull
No giving up
Either way, it makes ya mad
Well some of us
Hats off to the bull, keep giving all
What ya say we make amends

To be monumental
Could mean the beyond
The simpler the treasure
Means the higher the cost
Well as for the ending, damn right I'm learning
You might ask for the door, end over end

Well I hate how the clouds hide
The gasps from above

So hats off to the bull
No giving up
Either way, it makes ya mad
Well some of us
Hats off to the bull, keep giving all
What ya say we make amends

Find your challenge, suffer miles
Colors gray, he brings them out
Don't mind the challenge, suffer miles
A little shallow, if I don't say

Hats off to the bull
His time ain't up
Bitter hell in the lion's den
For some of us
Hats off to the bull
The sun won't set
Till the pain and the final breath




8. ARISE

So I clamber off
Into a realm
Of what's possible
Give us a look
So we may show
The animal
He wants you to know

You either fail or you rise
And reach to other worlds
Right through the needle's eye
Come take your first look inside

Like a fool caught red-handed
To play out as they wish
I'd take a life of raw emotion
Than a life of content till death
Well, at least you'd owe
No apologies for starters
Go and seek yourself




9. REVENGE

Crowds and torches fill the air
Surprise you're chosen, now finish it
Yell it louder really sink that point in

That sat for so long
For so long
Behind these civilized eyes

Me, I'd let the panic ride and pin it on the wall
Identifying pride is the saddest of the chores
Those burning eyes indeed define a churning of the soul
Feels better to be lost, but haven't felt the choice

For so long
Behind these civilized eyes

Revenge (x4)

That's cold
That's cold
May your own
Fate has tortured us for too long

For so long
my demons (For so long)
It's countdown for me
With blindfolds you held us
Till I found the best revenge

For so long my demons (Revenge)
It's countdown for me
With blindfolds you held us
Till I found the best revenge




10. PRIMA DONNA

Running out again, should've solved this right
Suddenly confused, I shifted sides
But listen little prima donna
Wrap your head 'round this simple thought

I won't be left out
You learn a thing or two
When we were young we'd shout
Let's separate the city
We won't be left out
You landed on the answer
I won't be left out

(ooooh, ooooh)
When the world owns so much of you
From your daring to fit in
At first they pass you 'round
You're only left holding the sin
But the difference quite simply
That untied these arms
Was the helpless artist
Cast the final stone

I won't be left out
You learn a thing or two
When we were young we'd shout
Let's separate the city
We won't be left out
You landed on the answer
I won't be left out

Soon,
Soon these souls will be born
Safe from any
Soon,
Soon these souls will be born

But I won't be left out
You learn a thing or two
When we were young we'd shout
Let's separate the city
We won't be left out
You landed on the answer
I won't be left out




11. CLONES

You're just a clone of them
Have you no way to set a fire
You're just a clone of them
The Devil's in the ways we live

It's all chemicals by and large it's not you
Or your excitement
I'm caught trading blows and climbing walls for a view
Out of resentment

You're just a clone of them
Have you no way to set a fire
You're just a clone of them
The Devil's in the ways we live

But this sadness you saw in us
Comes honestly from foreign worlds

There's too many muddy feet
It's all too easy counting

So in the end, if I hold the fate, you hold a chance
Never admit, I'd simply ascend
To see what the soul looks like in the end
After all

We need a change I feel
From this saga of old past blandness
Maybe I'll tase myself
Wake up from this maze of lies built up

You're just a clone of them
Have you no way to set a fire
You're just a clone of them
The Devil's in the ways we live
After all, what do I know
