Track Name: Grey Yard
You greet the wold as you open your eyes
Pulled through time and space following the light
Stand, walk, run, feeling sensations like fright
Awareness sets in. Your dreams start to take flight

Stroll past an epitaph, one you've seen before
Thinking life above must be better than below
Got so much time ahead and room left to grow
You'll make this one better than the one that came before

The adventure awakens your soul
More to life, more than just getting old
Fall in love. Fall in love at first sight
With the light as it takes you, it takes you

Long nights and hard work traveling the road
Years pass like hours wearing down that headstone
You long forgot the taste of fire and limits high in the skies
Until you see the light again in a young child's eyes

See through the old mans eyes
Stand on the edge of a six foot dive
Beneath familiar words set in stone
That sparked so many dreams now left behind
Track Name: Undead
Wasteland of humanity
Weeds of two thousand years
Overgrowth is all I can see
Reasons for mothers tears
Death is a state of mind
What you're in while you're alive
The sin and the sacrifice in endless cycles

They've come eighty times or more
Each time we bowed and called them Lord
I don't think I can take any more
'Cause something else is what I'm sold

(We eat. We breathe. We live.)
We're all gone with it
(Don't break. Hold fast. Have faith)
Unless you change your mind
(Belong. Behave. I'm free)
We're all trapped in it
(I'm right. You're wrong. Know peace.)
And wasting precious time

You can't see that you're the operator
When you find out, it stings
In days past I was the operator
Now cured of that disease
Burn down this apparatus
I cant see past these trees
Find out just what it means
To have a savior in me
Track Name: Outlaw Roundup
Hey all you outlaws
Let me hear you yell
Time to break you out of
Those dirty prison cells

Fightin' shootin' drinkin'
All just for the thrills
Lawman sees us coming
He's headed for the hills

You take and make outlaws of us all
We stand. We fight. This is our call
I can't be bought or do what I'm told
My blood. My body. My land. My soul

This is an outlaw roundup
With our guns raised high
If you aint with us
Then just reach for the sky

We're here to move the mountains
We were born to part the seas
Your troubled river is rising
We're no longer at your feet
Make way for us. We are the new law
Now, you know, you did it to yourself
Had time on your turn for stacking the deck
Now you gotta deal with what you're dealt
Track Name: Sailor
Nineteen days to feel alive
Thirty-three to claim as prize

(BREAK BACKS. BURN FLAGS.)

Had to go we cannot stay
Little known to the blockade
Hike the skirt and douse the lights
Slip away in dead of night

Forty-eight 'til screws away
Ruler rouse 'til break of day

(BREAK BACKS. BURN FLAGS.)

Headed home to Wilmington
Back to the south where I come from
I fight this war to free my land
From prying eyes and greedy hands
But if they win They'll probably say
That one nation is a better way
One thing that will never fade is
Southern sons on northern waves
*repeat

(BREAK BACKS. BURN FLAGS.)
(WE ARE THE)
(SOUTHERN SONS ON NORTHERN WAVES)
