Blue 03:47
We are not the beautiful ones/ We don't have no magic spells to cast/ Nobody looks twice at us/ Nobody looks twice// We're as tough as shattered porcelain / Nah we’re not gonna lie about our strength/ No one ever picks us to win/ No one ever picks us// But we see in the morning, we see in the night/ A megavolt struck us and opened our eyes// We are off the charts/ Got no place on this planet/ Woke up in the stars/ Found mercy in this madness/ Our blood is blue// Sometimes we feel like aliens/ Like birds that cannot fly or fish that don't swim/ But maybe we are not so different/ Or maybe we are// We are not angels/ But we have halos/ Lay down in the river and we came up new/ We are not angels/ But we have halos/ Lay down in the river and now//
No Secrets 03:46
Hercules, are you so confident you're strong?/ You wanna face your fears/ But is the lion in you lost?/ Well you been playing in a volcano/ Tryna find, tryna find, tryna find/ Tryna find if you can summon up a little heat/ Shouting till your lungs are tired/ Battle cry, battle cry, battle cry, battle cry/ But you just don't seem to believe it/ There, there now// Turn the key/ Don't you go breaking down another door/ The things you want are free/ My heart's a chamber of treasure to explore, to adore/ No secrets (La de da)// It's a fatality/ Oh and there's only one known cure/ You can't just stay away from me no, no, no/ And expect to win it all/ Yeah you could fling yourself into the sky/ Get a high, get a high, get a high, get a high/ Yeah try a livin’ like a mountaineer/ Or dig yourself into a hole/ Going down, going down, going down/ Going down because you wanna feel a little deeper/ Or you could// I wanna take you with me/ Let you be power and peace/ I wanna make you feel whole/ There's nothing I wouldn't give / I wanna see you live/ Darling, this is gold//
Rain 03:30
They say it's darkest before the dawn/ But God this midnight just keeps stretching on/ My visibility is so low, so clouded, I can't see/ So I try to make believe/ But I can't do it// So I rain down/ Let it rain down/ Waiting for you (do do do)// Waiting for the flood waters to recede/ Well it's been more than forty days and still no sign, no olive leaf/ I'm only just afloat, and I want to either fight or flee/ But I can't seem to do neither and it's torturing me oh// I know there's gotta be something in this/ Somewhere some rhyme or reason/ I know I'm gonna find something in this/ Maybe not now, but soon, I'll see the proof/ And feel love rain down/ Your love will rain down on me/ I'm still waiting for you//
Sad Birds 05:38
Silent footfalls/ Won’t disturb the loneliness of the room/ Sobbing quietly in this mausoleum of memory// Pearl white angel/ Standing like some guardian to your heart/ But you don’t need it/ Where you sleep, it'll never be dark// When you fell off the clock/ Time wouldn't stop for us/ So we try to move on/ Cos that's what you'd want, though it's hard/ We will dance the figures of this mad world/ Till our bodies ache from trying/ And though we spend the evening like sad birds/ We'll be singing when the dawn comes/ Sea of faces/ Their hearts feel the same way that ours do/ No one can escape/ We're all slaves to the freedom that came for you// As our eyes open/ Curtains of light and hope start shining through/ Dust and ash have blown away/ And we are brand new//
