Track Name: Lights Out
You put me together.
You tear me apart.
You do it so well:
it's become an art

I can burn my own bridge.
You said, "Let me help."
The wind then changed direction
and you burned yourself.

Out in the hall the truth came out;
there's nothing I can do about it now.
You whispered so low I couldn't hear what you said,
but I know what you meant.

Please speak up and annunciate
make sure that you get it right.
Doesn't matter what you say
I've already made my choice.
Track Name: Slow Dance At The Burn Unit
lyrics by: Kirk Rawlings

Careful, I have been burned to death’s front door
I’m loads of photographs taken on the way from war
Well who would find me in a fire? Who could find me in a flood?
With all the angels out for hire,
I’ve never been one, never the one, never the one to miss things

Well at least before you make a scene, could you give off smoke like a fire breathes a warning that we all can read and duck and run for cover
I’m a shell-shocked man in this fucking race, the tires shred on eggshells
face the music, face the facts in the case
it was over before it started

I’m stuck on you tonight when everyone’s after me
Every time, never know what will be, with secrets that I can’t keep
Track Name: Half Man hand
Hand over me
like sky over sea.
Happy hand
shows the jolly man.

Have a hand,
we have hand.
Reach and shake
half a hand.

Hand over me,
her smile is sweet.
Shaky hand
hides the nervous man.

Hand over me,
he's looking mean.
Empty hand
shows the shallow man.

Have a hand,
we have hand.
Reach and shake
half a hand.
