Lyrics

Cocaine Flowers

Written By: J.Mccutchen

Out of the Darkness and into the light
Ran out of reasons and I fell to the right
Give me your hand and I'll show you the way
Gave you the cancer to take it away, yeah

Cocaine flowers, keep on blooming on the walls
When it catches up to you, I'll take the fall, I'll take the fall

Out of the city and into the night
Now is the season to sell you a lie
Take more than fire to burn all these piles
Out of the shadows and in your denial, yeah

Cocaine flowers, keep on blooming on the walls
When it catches up to you, I'll take the fall, I'll take the fall

And I can't let you drown
Can you hear the sound
But I can't let you drown

Cocaine flowers, keep on blooming on the walls
When it catches up to you, I'll take the fall, I'll take the fall

Remains

Written By: Mccutchen/Stewart

You ask me questions
I don't know the answers to
Reach down inside yourself
And tell me you dont want it too

Your memories are fading
with everything you know
The past circles around your head
And you got nothing left to show

Those who've come before us
Made the same mistakes
Those who lie below us
Their memories remain

Your still sifting and searching
The truth hides from you
Go back and find yourself
Is what you were born to do

Your memories are fading
with everything you know
The past lingers around your head
And you got nothing left to do

Those who've come before us
Made the same mistakes
Those who lie below us
Their memories remain

Another Sacrifice
For taking bad advice
But thanks to your concern
I guess I'll never learn

Your memories are fading
with everything you know
The past circles around your head
And you got nothing left to show

Those who've come before us
Made the same mistakes
Those who lie below us
Their memories remain

Into the Fire

Written By: J.McCutchen

I'm gonna break / Another mistake
But I'm gonna get through
Its been so long / And I've come undone
So come and save me
Light up the way / but just for today
You cant fake it
But you got me figured me out

Ya,ya Tripping on the minutes as the hours seem to fade
ya,ya Just take what you are given
Cause your giving yourself away

Now that I know/ I wont let you go
Into the fire
Take a deep breath, Its still more or less
The pressure is killing me
Take it away but just for today
You cant blame me
I know I got you figured out

Ya,ya Tripping on the minutes as the hours seem to fade
ya,ya just take what you are given
Cause your giving yourself away

Whoa-o / Now you got nothing left to say
Whoa-o / Now its time to pay

I'm gonna break / Another mistake
But I'm gonna get through
Its been so long / And I've come undone
So come and save me
Light up the way / but just for today
You cant fake it
But you got me figured me out

Ya,ya Tripping on the minutes as the hours seem to fade
ya,ya Just take what you are given
Cause your giving yourself away
Your giving yourself away
Your giving yourself away
