Track Name: The Heirophant
Oh that's me the heirophant
Here to reign in the ways you want
All this control don't come for free
There are worms neath the dirt but you don't want to see
Oh ya that's me oh ya that's me

Wisdom to each in apportion to his want
If you don't want to undertstand the way things got to be
Why would I force you to see the light
Want to walk the path without seeing what's next
Take my hand I'll be your guide

Oh that's me the heirophant
Here to reign in the ways you want
All this control don't come for free
There are worms neath the dirt but you don't want to see
Oh ya that's me oh ya that's me

Scared to get cut on the glass but it's only glitter
If you ever want to know the answers all you have to do is ask
But they ain't here to please your sense
Beauty lies in complexity
If you're not up for the challenge
Go on join the line
Please feel free
Oh that's me the heirophant
Here to reign in the ways you want
All this control don't come for free
There are worms neath the dirt but you don't want to see
Oh ya that's me oh ya that's me

Why would I try to keep you scared and alone
When you do it so well on your own
Keep you crying saying you can never win
And it ain't hard to teach but it's hard to learn
How to keep your sight while the world it burns
And the breaks it takes to orchestrate it all
The saint is just the next one to fall
Track Name: Weren't Bridges
Those weren't bridges that I burned
Must be blind if you haven't learned
We all like play with fire
Now the chains no longer rattle
Heat gonna make the glass shatter
Those weren't bridges those weren't bridges
That I burned

Through the smoke it's hard to see
And you're choking on the piece of me
You thought would finally help you clean your plate
Won't give me what I need
Break every promise you ever made to me
I'll grant your freedom
At the going rate

Those weren't bridges that I burned
Must be blind if you haven't learned
We all like play with fire
Now the chains no longer rattle
Heat gonna make the glass shatter
Those weren't bridges those weren't bridges
That I burned

Tell me what you've heard
Love to see how the vine twists the words
To justify the hurt you put on me
I ain't here to hear your please
Once loose the tide cannot recede
I didn't start it but I ain't gonna let it be

Those weren't bridges that I burned
Must be blind if you haven't learned
We all like play with fire
Now the chains no longer rattle
Heat gonna make the glass shatter
Those weren't bridges those weren't bridges
That I burned

I'm not doing this for attention
If i had don't you think retention would be higher on my list of priorities
And I can without your touch
What you took from me never be enough
To put out the fire roaring inside of me
Those weren't bridges that I burned
Must be blind if you haven't learned
We all like play with fire
Now the chains no longer rattle
Heat gonna make the glass shatter
Those weren't bridges those weren't bridges
That I burned
Those weren't bridges those weren't bridges
That I burned
Track Name: You Say You Want A Revolution
Say you want a revolution
Are you doing what you can
If you're willing and able
Why your lines getting lost in the sand
You say you want a revolution
But only far as you want to go
And all that is is what got us here
The need to keep control

And you say you want a revolution
You say you want a revolution
You say you want a revolution
But I don't think you really know

And you can scream for days from the ramparts
The wind can take your blows
You can take the distance harden your heart
You won't see the damage till it's bought and sold
You can scream for days from the ramparts
While the world is bought and sold
And we'll be down here working on growing love
When you start to look for more

And you say you want a revolution
You say you want a revolution
You say you want a revolution
But I don't think you really know

And you say you want a revolution
You say you want a revolution
You say you want a revolution
But I don't think you really know
No I don't think you really know
Track Name: Butterfly On The Battlefield
Don't want a champion
Rather have a lover
With a heart that's open
When it tells me that it's true
Don't need a rescue
Just need some cover
Another butterfly on the battlefield trying to get through

All quiet on the western front all still and silent night
All eyes on me waiting to count the wrong from the right
It's everyone seems to know
Which armory I should go
But all munitions kept hidden from my sight

Don't want a champion
Rather have a lover
With a heart that's open
When it tells me that it's true
Don't need a rescue
Just need some cover
Another butterfly on the battlefield trying to get through

Will rebellion always fold to what you're not trying to bend to
Impetus to try to live today to want what tomorrow brings
Like a giant dome of consciousness
Wondering how you maintain all this
Don't it get exhausting on the edge of your seat
Waiting to see what choice will be

Don't want a champion
Rather have a lover
With a heart that's open
When it tells me that it's true
Don't need a rescue
Just need some cover
Another butterfly on the battlefield trying to get through

Wouldn't bring my gun if I didn't want this fight
Our hearts weren't put here to hide away in the cold dark night
Put myself into this fire though I'm afraid to move
Lightning destroys everything I touch
And I'm fraid of touching you

Don't want a champion
Rather have a lover
And a heart that's open
When it tells me that it's true
Don't need a rescue
Just need some cover
Another butterfly on the battlefield trying to get through
