DANCING FOOL

I will wait for you here

I am the flower you are the flame

Burned to the ground and you are to blame

But is it really worth it if it’s beauty without pain

So if you’re spreading fire, I’ll be the same

I will wait for you here

One quarter passion one quarter meticulous plans

In the truth the other half’s the whims of a wild working man

Father I have learned that most roads are paved with stone

So if I’m spreading fire, you be the wind that blows me home

I will wait for you here

Mother,

I’ve no love for this place

But if I live for love

Than I’ll have to stay 

And meet my demons face to face

Mother 

I’ve no love for this place

But if I live for love

Then I’ll have to stay 

And learn to live in grace

You be the craftsman I’ll be the tool

You be the stage, I’ll be a dancing fool

I will wait for you here

I will wait for you here

I will wait for you here


DEVIL’S WALTZ

Come on my girl take hands with me

And we’ll waltz around that sycamore tree

And we’ll sing an old song that we heard on the wind

In hopes of escaping the devil’s worst sin

And it goes…

Lie die die I don’t feel any pain

When we roll in the mud and we play in the rain

My heart it bleeds through on my shirt leaves a stain

Numbed by the tune of our lovers’ refrain

You’ll call me wisdom and I’ll call you boy

We’ll represent life, one suffering one joy

We’ll dance round the edges of placing the fault

We’ll twirl the fine line of the devil’s waltz

Lie die die I don’t feel any pain

When we roll in the mud and we play in the rain

My heart it bleeds through on my shirt leaves a stain

Numbed by the tune of our lovers’ refrain

I’ll kiss you goodbye and I’ll lace up my boots

The taste of your skin is the sweetest of fruits

Then I marched into battle and all that I felt

Was the kiss of the bullet that sent me to hell

I lifted your body and screamed at the gods

Have of my soul is what our love cost

And then laced up your boots and climbed down to save

That man soul and body from hades sweet grave

And it goes

Lie die die I don’t feel any pain

When we roll in the mud and we play in the rain

My heart it bleeds through on my shirt leaves a stain

Numbed by the tune of our lovers’ refrain

Lie die die I don’t feel any pain

When we roll in the mud and we play in the rain

My heart it bleeds through on my shirt leaves a stain

Numbed by the tune of our lovers’ refrain

You’ll watch me put on that pretty black dress

And I’ll dress to match you in Lucifer’s vest

That we stole from him on that cold winter’s eve

We’re dressed in the moonlight of lovers and thieves


EASTBOUND

Bring me that horizon. Let me hear the call of Sirens. I won’t go to them,

For I have better things in mind with the sea in front, the sea behind, 

And the wild, wild, wild, wind whipping on my shoulders.

In the sea we have no name. We are brothers, we’re the same,

but we hear differently.

Both strong and in our youth, the exception is I’ve heard the truth, 

and all I want is you to hear it, too.

Do you know what you’re looking for? Do you know what you’re searching for?

We’ve left behind the shore and come knocking on the sea’s front door 

in hopes that she will take us where she’s going.

Will she take us to the East? Is that where we’ll find the feast? Either way 

we will follow where she’s flowing.

We’re proving what we know--that we can face the sea and return home, 

when in our heads just screaming, 

“We are not alone, we are not alone, we are not alone!”

Do you know what you're looking for? Do you know what you’re searching for?

I can see what’s in your mind. Look ahead. Let go of what’s behind, or that storm will take you over the side.

And I’ll reach down and pull you out, even though we’re both sure to drown. 

Maybe overboard is just a different route.

Down down we go to the bottom, sinking deeper, darker, down we go. Sirens’ songs, the light is gone, this life is long, and

I’ll do you wrong, and all the things you thought below . . . 

You’re not alone, you're not alone.

Do you know what you're looking for? Do you know what you're searching for?  

Do you know what you're looking for? Do you know what you're searching for?     

Do you see what a life could be if you could just be free like me?

And I have seen what you're looking for, and I have seen what you're searching for.

Now we must return, to see if we’ve really learned, or if the sun just left us burned.

For the sea it treats us well, but if we learn to love ourselves,

We can learn to love you.

We can learn to love you.
