Something From Nothing

Give me a flammable light
I'm cold as a match ready to strike
So here I go

Here lies a city on fire
Singing along
The arsonist choir
Now here I go

It's started with a spark
And burned into the dark
Now here I go

There is a river I've found
Into the wild
Under the ground
So here I go

A button on a string
And I heard everything
Now here I go
Well...

Oh sweet ignition be my fuse
You have no choice you have to choose
Bid farewell to yesterday
Say goodbye I'm on my way

But in the end we all
Come from what's come before
So here I go
Well...

Oh sweet ignition be my fuse
You have no choice you have to choose
Bid farewell to yesterday
Say goodbye I'm on my way

I threw it all away because
I had to be what never was
Been so hungry I could lie
Took my word, I took your wine

And held you in my bloody hands
These rattled bones and rubber bands
Washed them in the muddy water
Looking for a dime and found a quarter

But you can't make me change my name
They'll never make me change my name
Pay no mind now ain't that something
F*ck it all I came from nothing

I'm something from nothing
You are my fuse
I'm something from nothing
You are my fuse

It goes oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh
It goes oh, oh, oh
All rise!

No you can't make me change my name
You'll never make me change my name
Pay no mind no wait that something
F*ck it all I came from nothing

I'm something
From nothing
I'm something
From nothing

The Feast And The Famine

That night they were burning for truth
Down on the corner of 14th and U
They took your soul and they took you for fools
Took all the windows from prisons and schools
Now what's a poor man left to do?

One heart now broken in two
You start untying the hands of the youth
New kids hear the sound of the drumming
Mother Nature your Summer is coming
Yesterday and today
Revolution on its way

Amen
It was The Feast and the Famine
Amen
It was The Feast and the Famine
It was The Feast and the Famine
Feast and the Famine

Crossroads with nothing to lose
Out of the basement and in to the news
Come change, now shit getting heavy
Salvation at the ready
You look when I walked by
Still screaming 'til I die
You can't find peace if you can't find a home
You can't survive as an island alone
Black heart with a gaping wound
Put back together by a troubled groove
Check yourself
Wreck your brains
Where is that P.M.A.?

Amen
It was The Feast and the Famine
Amen
It was The Feast and the Famine
It was The Feast and the Famine
Feast and the Famine

Hey, where is the monument?
To the dreams we forget?
We need a monument
And change will come
Yeah change will come
Is there anybody there? (Anybody there?)
Anybody there? (Anybody there?)
There?

Amen
It was The Feast and the Famine
Amen
It was The Feast and the Famine
It was The Feast and the Famine
Feast and the Famine

Amen
Where is the monument?
To the dreams we forget?
Amen
We need a monument
And change will come
And change will come
Is there anybody there? (Anybody there?)
Anybody there? (Anybody there?)
There?

Congregation

Well, I met the seventh son
He came for everyone
The day he heard the lighting in the field
I heard him clear his throat
A fork within the road
That night the Tallahatchie took the wheel

I've been throwing knives
To see just where they land
Now my world is in your hands

Send in the congregation
Open your eyes, step in the light
A jukebox generation
Just as you were

The voice upon the stage
Is the heart inside a cage
And they're singing like a bluebird in the round
There's mystery in this wood
And ghosts within these roots
That are tangled deep beneath this southern ground

I've been going through life
Making foolish plans
Now my world is in your hands

Send in the congregation
Open your eyes, step in the light
A jukebox generation
Just as you were

And you need blind faith
No false hope
No false hope
Do you have blind faith?
No false hope
No false hope
Where is your blind faith?
No false hope
No false hope
Open your eyes, open your eyes
Step into the light
Open your eyes, step into the light
The sound becomes

Congregation
A congregation
A congregation, yeah
And they're singing like a bluebird in the round

What Did I Do? / God As My Witness

There you go again,
putting words into my mouth.
This one's for you to know,
and for me to find out.

All that trouble, and you on about.
How you gonna know, til you hear it out loud.
Stop, ask myself what did I do?
what did I do to deserve you?
Come on, tell me now what did I do?
what did I do to deserve you?

I heard every word comin' from the 13th floor.
Your song came along,
and I heard the voices telling me to save yourself,
I'll behave yourself.

I stop, ask myself what did I do?
what can I do to preserve you?
Come on, tell me now, what can I do?
What can I do to conserve you?

Your name, year of fame,
I could see the writing on the wall.
Come on, flip a coin, bet it's going to tell you
to save yourself, I'll behave yourself.

Your man, channelin', knowin' by the x on his hand
You raise, runaways singin' at the gate,
to save yourself, I'll behave yourself.

So here I go again,
putting words into your mouth.
This one's for me to know,
and for you to find out.

All that trouble and I'm on about,
how you gonna know, til you hear it out loud.
All of your heroes, where are they now?

I'm lost, deliver me,
I crossed the river finally.
God as my witness,
yeah it's gonna heal my soul tonight.
God as my witness,
yeah it's gonna heal my soul tonight.
God as my witness,
yeah it's gonna heal my soul tonight.

God as my witness,
yeah you gonna heal my soul tonight.
God as my witness,
yeah you gonna heal my soul tonight.

Outside

There you are dancing at your altar
Beautiful earthling, dressed in kashmir
All of your sound echoes in the canyons
Down below they're dreaming
Hear the sirens screaming
Another time, another world
Girls were boys and boys were girls
Find the glitter in the litter
Like a haunt, it's got to move
Everybody needs some room
There's something out there

There's a long straight road, out of the cold
And we can leave it all behind
I wanna get outside, baby, let's get outside
I wanna get outside, outside, of me

Oh, I found the space between the spaces
Standing in the nothing, and time will cling to
And as the wind will beat you down
And the wind the only sound
There's something out there

There's a long straight road, out of the cold
And we can leave it all behind
I wanna get outside, baby, let's get outside
I wanna get outside, outside, of me

There's a long straight road, out of the cold
And we can leave it all behind
I wanna get outside, baby, let's get outside
I wanna get outside, outside, of me

In The Clear

There are days I might not make it
There are days I might start brakin'
When the rains starts coming down as heavy as the air
you can find me dancing with the spear
it's in the square god damn I swear

There are times I feel like givin'
There are times I begin to begin again
look outside the world keeps spinning like a paddle wheel
rolling for the broken hearted waiting on the heel

You know I'm not in the clear
You are not in the clear
Don't you go count me out now dear

You know I'm not in the clear
You are not in the clear
Don't you go count me out now dear

In the clear

There are places I don't remember
There are faces I don't remember
How could I forget you painted stars into the sky
Coming like a reaper marching in the second life

You know I'm not in the clear
You are not in the clear
Don't you go count me out now dear

You know I'm not in the clear
You are not in the clear
Don't you go count me out now dear

In the clear

And if I should drown
May this be the sound
To wash me out!

You know I'm not in the clear
You are not in the clear
Don't you go count me out now dear

You know I'm not in the clear
You are not in the clear
Don't you go count me out now dear

In the clear
In the clear

Subterranean

Nothing left within, I've been mined
Hell and back again, subterranean
I've been digging in down inside
I will start again, subterranean

But the truth is so unkind
What do you know, how low the sky
Yet the truth is so unkind
What do you know, how low the sky

You might think you know me
I know damn well you don't
Oh no, oh no, you don't

You might think you own me
I know damn well you don't
Oh no, oh no, you don't

Buried my heart, cannot go this alone
And I might think you love me
But I know damn well you don't
Oh no, you don't

Bring all your lies leave them deep in the dirt
Oh no, you don't
Pull down my eyes
Lay me deep in the earth

I Am A River

There is a secret
I found a secret
Behind a Soho door

There is a reason
I found a reason
Beneath the subway floor

I found the water
The devils water
and walked along its shore

Is that what you want?

The channel's changing
The heart is racing
from voices on a wire

The soul is yearning
the cold is burning
the ember starts a fire

Can we recover
love for each other,
the measure of your life

Is that what you want?
Is that what you really want

A river
A river
a river running under ground

A river
A river
Is that what you want?
Is that what you really want?

I!.. I!..
I am a river
[x4]

Is that what you want
is that what you really want

I!.. I!..
I am a river
[x4]

I am a river!

I!.. I!..
I am a river
[x3]
