Track Name: Burnt Black Cars
Fade into summer’s waning days
The streets on fire
Kindness and chaos draws me in
The kids were right

But is this for real
Is this for real
Is this for real
Is this for real
Or can we be free

Wake up to silence and burnt black cars
The streets are torn apart
Teargas and terror fills up your eyes
This ones for you to keep

Cause this is for real
This is for real
This is for real
This is for real
This is for real
This is for real
And you can’t go back back
Track Name: Summer Sun
See that sun, see that sun, see it blacking out all you knew
It’s ok my dear, I still feel you, right beside me
But I don’t know, I don’t know, if we’ll make it home from here
Burnt bright haze of light, burnt up all we’ve ever known

And I will run to you
if this is anything

So I gave up, I gave up, I can’t give up on you now
We’ve got something here, we’ve got all we’ll ever need
See that sun, see that sun, see it burning up all you know
Burnt bright haze of light, burnt up all we’ve ever known

An I will run to you
if this is anything
Track Name: Stay Still
Stay, there’s going to be a reckoning
Stay, stay, there’s going to be a reckoning
The first will be last, the last will be king
Give up what you know, forsake everything
Stay, there’s going to be a reckoning
Stay still there’s going to be a reckoning

Stay, there’s going to be a reckoning
Stay still, there’s going to be a reckoning
Did they teach you anything?
They’ll put you in the ring
Stay stay, there’s going to be a reckoning

Save yourself, there’s going to be a reckoning
And the Avant-garde are coming of age
If you go, you give it away
Stay
Stay
Track Name: Resurrection Blues
I waited three whole days, but no one rose up to great me today
I waited four more days, watching for the fires to fade away
Track Name: City Sublet
In this city sublet
A cop car is burning
The next hazy morning
No one is working

Got evicted from heaven
Couldn’t sweat it out
Know I’m not a permanent man
There’s no metro home

a contract that's meant to crack
opiates for the working class
This infrastructure was built
To fail and crumble

In this city sublet
A cop car is burning
The next hazy morning
No one is working

a contract that's meant to crack
opiates for the working class
This infrastructure was built
To fail and crumble

Walked up to a mountain
In the middle of an island
Could have sworn I saw you
Waving for help

Walked to a mountain
In the middle of an island
Where the infrastructure was built
To fail and crumble
Track Name: Don't Forget The Youth
We lost ourselves now
Gave up everything we had
Built up a pyre so we all could watch it burn
‘Cause there is something but I don’t know, if you want to see it through
Is there life beyond this scene or will we just fade and burn

It’s not alright when you find yourself alone
It’s not alright when we forget the youth

I found a moment
To see, everything made clear
Give up your fears now
Yeah, just let them wash away
Cause there is something to believe on a burnt broken old street
When the kids have figured it out and they say it’s all messed up
Cause there is something that deceives and the kids have figured it out
Do you want to keep this going or will we just burn it down

It’s not alright when you tear yourself apart
It’s not alright when we forget the youth
It’s not alright when you tear yourself apart
It’s not alright when we forget the youth
It’s not alright when you tear yourself apart
It’s not alright when we forget the youth
Track Name: Home
this home, it's what you were looking for
it's right here, but it's not what you thought it would be
it's here, is where we stumble from thing to thing
and it's here, where I fell right into you

home
you are

feel, the ground pass beneath your feet
and see, the sun rise above us now
and we'll feel, the passing of each little thing
and watch, as your worries all just float away

home
you are

home, it's what you were looking for
and it's here, but it's not what you thought it would be
home, it's what you were looking for
and it's here, but it's not what you thought it would be

home, it's what you were looking for
and it's here, but it's not what you thought it would be
now feel, the ground pass beneath your feet
and we'll feel, the passing of each little thing

take what you can, make it up in the end (home, it's what you were looking for)
but you can't go back right now (it's here, but it's not what you thought it would be)
you take what you can, make it up in the end (home, it's what you were looking for)
but you can't go back right now (it's here, but it's not what you thought it would be)
you take what you can, make it up in the end (home, it's what you were looking for)
but you can't go back right now (it's here, but it's not what you thought it would be)
take what can, take what you (home, it's what you were looking for)
but you can't go back right now (it's here, but it's not what you thought it would be)
