Track Name: Hurrah A Bolt Of Light - I Sold My Soul
Under the dirt under the rubble I did reside
I was carved out from the arms of another
My life was realized
I woke with the words and I could not describe
What was given to me what was planted inside
I was living a life that for me was a lie or so I'm told

I sold my soul to the devil but my heart is yours
I'd rather burn than be here stuck in the middle
The middle of my heart is yours
My heart is yours

Out of his mouth tumbles a secret and I'm awake
It's like a car crash, I'm stuck at the scene and I can't seem to look away
He tells me a story and I cannot relate to the protagonist and the price that was paid
It's a foreign concept to the life that I claimed from old
Now you know

I sold my soul to the devil but my heart is yours
I'd rather burn than be here stuck in the middle
The middle of my heart is yours
My heart is yours

I reach for your hand but I cannot relate to the blood and the bone and the smile you fake
I still hold you close but you're miles away
So I reach out to you

I sold my soul to the devil but my heart is yours
I'd rather burn than be here stuck in the middle
The middle of my heart is yours
My heart is yours
Track Name: Hurrah A Bolt Of Light - Rip It Out
I'll take my heart and rip it out so you can hear me sing. Can you hear me now?
Time's are changing so I've got to change or point the blame on everybody else.
I'm taking the easy way out now.

Oh, I'm getting sick and tired of giving in. It's all the same these games we play.
So tell me why now it's up to me to be have to be so patient with myself when it's so
hard to be everything to everybody else.

I'm taking the easy way out now.
I'll take my heart and rip it out.
Well, you may see the glass as half full but, baby, I've got my doubts.
Now I'm taking the easy way out.

Well, you better run girl. You better get out. I am an avalanche rolling down the mountain.
You know in time I will bury you and yet all you can do is hold me closer.
Hold me closer little darling I just keep on rolling.

So tell me why now it's up to me to be have to be so patient with myself when it's so
hard to be everything to everybody else.

I'm taking the easy way out now.
I'll take my heart and rip it out.
Well, you may see the glass as half full but, baby, I've got my doubts.
Now I'm taking the easy way out.

I'm taking the easy way out now.
I'll take my heart and rip it out.
Well, you may see the glass as half full but, lately, I've got my doubts.
Now I'm taking the easy way out.
Track Name: Hurrah A Bolt Of Light - Bones
I keep my father's gun underneath my bed.
Next to the magazines I never read.
Painted faces hover around my eyes.
Painted faces hover around like flies.

Oh, I'm going home on the back of a storm from down below.
Oh, no one will know what happened to my body, what happened to my bones.

I don't need a preacher boy. I know I'm right.
I've got the spirit now. I've got my forty-fives.
Painted faces paint their lives on me.
Painted faces. Painting endlessly.

Oh, I'm going home on the back of a storm from down below.
Oh, no one will know what happened to my body, what happened to my bones.

Painted faces paint their lives on me.
Track Name: Hurrah A Bolt Of Light - Hands In The Bees' Nest
I put my hands in the bees' nest to feel the sting of a reason.
I feel the cold of the winter and it whips me around, it rips me around.

When I get to heaven will you hold my hand?
Cover me in linens for the promised land.
I remember blue skies coming through the trees.
I remember you.

I put my hands on your sister to feel the cold and the difference.

When I get to heaven will you hold my hand?
Cover me in linens for the promised land.
I remember blue skies coming through the trees.
I remember you.
Track Name: Hurrah A Bolt Of Light - Life Is A Mystery
When I was a child I fell into a river and was carried out by the tide. Far out to sea.
I swam and I cried for the mother and the father I left behind, but now I see life is a mystery.

I fell asleep in the belly of a beast I had seen in the magazines; cut short like me.
One day they'll come burning down the pacific to take me home to my family.
'Til then life is a mystery

Don't keep it inside. let it out these feelings don't fade away with the passing of time. Bottled up; you'll be tearing yourself inside and out. I drink to you.

When I was a child I walked to the edge of a mountain to see if I could fly. I came so close. 
When I was alive my mother caught me as I was falling backwards in time; in time to see life is a mystery.

Don't keep it inside. let it out these feelings don't fade away with the passing of time. Bottled up; you'll be tearing yourself inside and out. I drink to you.
Track Name: Hurrah A Bolt Of Light - Ten Feet Tall
Standing in the kitchen, talking in your sleep. Making conversation. Demon in the deep. I'm just high.

My heart beats faster than I think it should and it's driving me up the wall. My hands start shaking at the sight of you and I remember that I lost at all. I remember when I used to look at you. I could kiss you from across the room. I was ten feet tall singing old punk songs that we used to dance to. 

Sitting in the basement. Waiting by the phone. I don't need to answer cause I am not at home. I'm just high.

Lately baby my heart beats faster than I think it should and it's driving me up the wall. My hands start shaking at the sight of you and I remember that I lost at all. I remember when I used to look at you. I could kill you from across the 
room. I was ten feet tall, young and full of shit and I used to love you.

So tell me where'd you go?
Track Name: Hurrah A Bolt Of Light - No Rest For The Wicked
I think it's time to question my design, though I'm meant to defend it.
They say it's now, now or never. Now is never in my head and I'm lost in these moments.
Spinning around.

These eyes shine on you and burn us with a fire.
So bright. Illuminates our bodies in the night.

My heart was built all wrong.
I can't filter out the world I'm in so now there ain't no rest for the wicked.
Like rust, it eats me up, but, when you're around I let you in and now there ain't no rest for the wicked.

I don't think it's right to have to wait in line when I want it.
Cause I want it now. Now or never, but, now is never in your bed.
You said it, you meant it. Most of the time.

These eyes shine on you and burn you with a fire.
So bright. Illuminates our bodies in the night.

My heart was built all wrong.
I can't filter out the world I'm in so now there ain't no rest for the wicked.
Like rust, it eats me up, but, when you're around I let you in and now there ain't no rest for the wicked.

You ask me why I'm fighting all the time. I can't answer you.
Maybe all is lost, lost forever. Forever is when we're dead or until we speak again.
So don't go.

My heart was built all wrong.
I can't figure out this world I'm in so now there ain't no rest for the wicked.
Like rust, it eats me up, but, when you're around I let you in and now there ain't no rest for the wicked.
Track Name: Hurrah A Bolt Of Light - In Over My Head
I keep my heart in a little box that I hide away. Locked up tight from the world outside; in a quiet place. I shoulda known there'd be hell to pay. I shoulda known that you'd do me that way.

There's nothing I can say, nothing I can do.

It sometimes feels like I'm in over my head and I can't deal: can't let it out. When the world don't seem right I just give up because it gets too much and I'm not strong enough for this.

All this life I've been searching round for that something new. I've got no time for the world outside. I'm always on the move.
Well, I shoulda known I was hurting you. I shoulda known better and that's the truth.

There's nothing I can say, nothing I can do.

It sometimes feels like I'm in over my head and I can't deal: can't let it out. When the world don't seem right I just give up because it gets too much and I'm not strong enough for this.

It sometimes feels like I'm in over my head.
Track Name: Hurrah A Bolt Of Light - Empty Bag Of Bones
I am but an empty bag of bones collecting dust for the holy ghost.
And I don't love you anymore.
You chained me to the bed.
You did your best but I've grown tired of this empty nest that I've scattered on the floor.

Well, it's not like me to give up. It's not like me to go, but, I'm not myself. No.

No heart in me. No soul in me. No emotions.
No blood in me. No sweat in me.
When all is said and done I don't remember my name.

I remember when my body died. I was lost. I was left behind in a cruel and heartless world.
That was such a long, long time ago when I would weep for the great unknown.
I don't fear you anymore.

Well, it's not like me to give up. It's not like me to go. I'm not myself. No.

No heart in me. No soul in me. No emotions.
No blood in me. No sweat in me.
When all is said and done I don't remember my name.

I don't remember my true friends. They're harder to find when you've got horns growing inside of you. For all the world to see. Don't cry because you are alive and we will see each other in time and then what will be will be.

I'm not myself. No.
