Track Name: The Chemic Drop
Someone ate these sour grapes
That set our teeth on edge
Find the strength to climb these gates
They cannot hold us in forever

I still believe in you and me and the chemic drop
I see the rising sun
I still believe in you and me and the chemic drop
Oh! Here it comes!

Tear the callous, tip the balance
Speed the shadow's edge
The cruel and savage run like rabbits
And in the end their closest friends will find them alone
And fight over the bones
Track Name: Prometheus, Glow!
In 1939, we pulled the fire from the sky
In 1939, we pulled the fire from the sky
We just got so tired of waiting for heaven
Uncovering the way of Mercury

Oh, these visions of gold
More than we could hold
Prometheus, glow!
A future we control

In 1969, we saw the promise with our eyes
In 1969, we saw the promise with our eyes
We just got so tired of living forever
Now we don't know what we're living for

Oh, these visions of gold
More than we could hold
Prometheus, glow!
A future we can know
Glow -- A future we control

Mmm - we don't stop
Mmm - we don't stop
'Til we reach the milk and honey from the mountaintop
Track Name: Hideaway
Red-eyed soldier
It's never over
Greet the morning
With handshakes, laughter and lies

Every night, I lie awake
Alone with my mistakes
Turn the knife, Atlantean weight
The darkness can't be tamed
Oh, light of day, my hideaway

No one knows me
Nothing holds me
The mind knows only
What lies near the heart
Track Name: The Lions and the Swans
Even if we're told by the flightless birds,
"The firmament is crumbling."
We won't eat their poisoned words
We're not listening

Driving by the scene of the accident
Your fingers tight, your body bent
We don't ask, "Who gets it next?"
Nothing's certain

Even if my eyes can't see the light
Even if we don't know who is right

If it's babylon, I think we'll still get on
History belongs to the lions and the swans

Even if the bite proves fatal, dear
I'll sing until the gods appear
I won't know that you are near
'Til the surface

Even as we cross the great divide
Even if the silence gets inside

When the curtain's drawn, it's the lions and swans
Track Name: Foshay
On the boulevard
Our Bonaparte revealed a work of art
Watched it fall apart
The orchestra, waiting to start

Here in the valley of ashes you lift your eyes
Stretch out your arms 'cause you're haunted by the light

Lift your monument like Washington
The ghostly dream-ship flies
Sink into the earth, to Leavenworth
Where dreams go to die

Here in the sky, remain
Here in the sky, Foshay
Here in the sky, your name
Here in the sky...

Here in the garden of knowing you take a bite
Stretch out your arms 'cause you're haunted by the light
Track Name: No Encores
Once on the tongue and the hunt has begun
Once on the tongue and the hunt has begun
Can't concede the greed I feed inside of me

Wash in the river
Fight or be still
There are no encores

Story of motion
Shoulder the swell
There are no encores
No turning back

Twice on the tongue and the hit is undone
Twice on the tongue and the hit is undone
Can't believe the feeling leaves so suddenly
Track Name: Weightless
I feel a weightlessness in the half-life
Of the half light of the Age

Escape the bitterness in the half-life
Of the half light of the Age

Forget the Dollar and the War
Forget the lender at the door
Forget the years that brought us to the floor

Just give me electricity
Kodachrome and memories that keep us from the cold
Color chaos gold
Track Name: Keep Us Young
I found an angel to deliver
She led me with a scalpel to the Fount
I saw a spectre in the mirror
The fruit becoming ash inside my mouth

Ah, the setting sun
Waits for none, waits for none
Still, bids the tongue
Keep us young, keep us young

I raised my tower to the heavens
This is how I wish to be restored
Can't keep the bodies cold forever
Melted wings collected on the floor
Track Name: Summer Idyll
The longest wait
That sickening sound
No escape
Closer now

People like us carry on
Fight Or stay down

Dreamer, dream a summer idyll for me
Our skin exposed
Is there still a golden ticket for us?
Are we too old?

Learn to speak
Learn to walk
Learn to live
With these thoughts

People like us carry on
Fight Or stay down

Dreamer, dream a summer idyll for me
Our skin exposed
Is there still a golden ticket for us?
Are we too old?

Heaven knows
Track Name: Leviathan
Carry all my bitter disappointment
Put it on leviathan
Carry all the demons in my pocket
Put it on leviathan

I've soured on the pleasure in my hand
Chasing things I'll never understand
Death be damned

Carry all the men I leave behind me
Put it on leviathan
Sending letters to their grieving families
Put it on leviathan

Driven by the ghost that moves the hand
Chasing things I'll never understand
Death be damned

Loveless and white
Filled with marrow and spite
I see it near - it's almost here
It's mine!

Look into the eye of leviathan
Track Name: Holiday
Walk from the shore
Walk from the shore
I was seventeen
Lost and green

But loving you was never easy
Never a holiday
For me, never a holiday
You plead, just one more holiday
Speak your dark confession to the deep

Wake from the fear
Wake from the fear
It's so hard to quit
A sinking ship

In the light you changed
And your love turned strange
And your bed was made
