Lyrics

Heart of a Lion

Written By: Codie Sundstrom

There is a girl who moved away
She and gave my heart shape
I let her go.

I always kept my key in place
Readied if she needed space
Or simply truth.

She's been running from something that i see in her face
And i wanted to be there but I felt so out of place.
Oh i wish i had a lion's heart
to let it all go.
Oh i wish we had a better start
maybe she'd know;
That she's the bullet to my darkest shines
And the anchor to my toes.
She's my guiding light, a hoped valentine
And she strikes down all my foes.
Yeah she strikes down all my foes.

Broken from the last endeavor
I know she hates it when she hears forever;
He said and left her.

She doesn't believe any word or reprieve
But if i could i'd tell her she's special.
But i'm too careful.

She's been running from something that i see in her face
And i wanted to be there but I felt so out of place.
Oh i wish i had a lion's heart
to let it all go.
Oh i wish we had a better start
maybe she'd know;
That she's the bullet to my darkest shines
And the anchor to my toes.
She's my guiding light, a hoped valentine
And she strikes down all my foes.
Yeah she strikes down all my foes.

The Darkness

Written By: Codie Sundstrom

Did they teach you about the Darkness?
I bet you didn't even know.
It's in their job description to harness
The money making capabilities that you own.
Did they teach you about the Darkness?
I bet you didn't even know.
It's in their statement drawn to harvest
All the misery, discomfort that you stow.

Are you a prisoner?
Are you a lost soul?
I swear I'm not giving up.
We'll fight it till we're left alone.

Did they break you like the others;
Transplant their songs into your bones?
Hand me a scalpel man, I promise
I swear I'll stop the endless drone,
I know it's cold.

Are you a prisoner?
Are you a lost soul?
Well I swear I'm not giving up.
We'll fight it till we're left alone.

The light, the light, the light.
Do you see the light?
The light, the light, the light,
Do you see the light?
I know you're scared of the night
But I think we'll be alright.

They didn't teach me about the darkness.
And no I didn't ever know.
Nobody said there was a way out.
It's where I got these scars I suppose.

Frances

Written By: Codie Sundstrom

I understand where you're coming from
It's a dark and lonely place
But pick your head back up my dear, you've been lost in outer space.
Careful with your lungs, they're fragile pretty little things.
Don't waste your oxygen on someone like me.

Spent too long,
Too far away.
You've spent too long,
Too far away.

Oh frances,
You gotta pick yourself up-up-up.
I've seen your many times way too drunk
In light of your mistakes,
Do you regret what you say?

And oh Frances
I know its hard to meet new people
But you're ruining the only steeple
Despite all your mistakes
That will house the remains.

I've been through all of those fights
And you can't blame someone who tries
To aid you through the black divine
You've been lost amongst your space and time.

Spent too long,
Too far away.
You've spent too long,
Too far away.

Oh frances,
You gotta pick yourself up-up-up.
I've seen your many times way too drunk
In light of your mistakes,
Do you regret what you say?

And oh Frances
I know its hard to meet new people
But you're ruining the only steeple
Despite all your mistakes
That will house the remains.

Constantine

Written By: Codie Sundstrom

Pristine
This place is so clean
Naught but filth on the mezzanine
Broke the levee,
Pull out your teeth
"I want my country down to the ground"

All I ever wanted was too much
All I ever needed was too much
Seems that all you people are messed up
I won't preach a think because I'll mess it up.

Believe, I bet they believe
In all the lies they see on TV.
Oh hey Constantine,
You speak tongue in cheek
Perform as expected on 6pm feet.

All I ever wanted was too much
All I ever needed was too much
Seems that all you people are messed up
I won't preach a think because I'll mess it up.
