Lyrics

Put Your Guns Back Down

Written By: Richard Hart

For all you've said and all things inbetween
You can take my word - things are as they seem
We meet upon the field of twisted dreams
The field that only you and I can see

You'll never change - you're still stuck in time
Can't stop looking for the pieces you can't leave behind
Silence falls as the soldiers hold their line
Waiting for that final, fatal sign

CHORUS
------
Put your guns back down
You don't need them now
I won't be around
Won't be in the crowd

Put your guns back down
You can have this town
I'm looking to higher ground
To where I'm surely bound

I was taught to heel
Sheltered from what's real
Advised on how I should feel

Surrounded by routine
Floatin' by unseen
While there's so much out there for me

It's beyond my control
Just builds up in my soul
And this time I'm not letting go

I know you couldn't see
That I wasn't free
And there's so much out there for me

CHORUS

Never Forget Me

Written By: Richard Hart

I can see what could be
How this all works out
All we have to do is change
the whole world around

Fold the trees and the seas
And pull them inside out
Then blue would be green
And you would be with me

The lines froze beneath our toes
Around where we lay
Your words I yearned and in turn
They burned my mind away

Shining gold from the hole
in the black of space
Everything's so far
Outside of where we are

Let the poets re-define
Philosophers divine
What it really means
Where happiness resides
Where it conqures and divides
All I know is that all things
must fade...

...fade and die.

I can see where we'd be
If we ride this line
And I just can't fall again
For the 1000th time

But don't ever let this disappear from your mind
Never forget me
When autumn leaves are free

Never forget me
When autumn leaves are free

The King And The Clown

Written By: Richard Hart

Long live the King. His praises sing.
His standard flies overhead.
The children sleep soundly - safe in their beds.
The jester's calls fill the halls.
To his majesty's delight.
They laugh and they joke into the night.

But when the coffers weren't piled high.
Then the jesters cries
Were drowned by the foolish crowd.
He's fallen down.
The king has lost ... lost his clown.

Let it be known, and let the record show.
That he never gave in.
He held on tightly with that false, tired grin.
Rising from his fall he showered them all.
With all that he could bestow.
So that he'd hear just what he wanted to know.

The court is joyless and bare.
And now who is there - to turn his
frown upside down?
Look at him now.
The king has lost ... lost his clown.

His only friend, locked up till the end.
Her freedom swallowed whole.
She dared to say that he had no clothes.
And then they chowed down on the sacred cow.
Throwing the bones on the floor.
Till nothing was sacred anymore.

And the soldiers cried the angels died.
And as all heads were bowed.
They cried aloud.
The king has lost ... lost his clown.

He's lost his clown.
But he's still got that big old crown.

They cried aloud.
The king has ... his clown.

Face Down

Written By: Courtney Russell

Calling the sun when you had me fall
back on the cloud of what you know
Baby please don't take what I said as fire
I don't need I don't need I don't need your desire

Burning my wings with a sigh that
undressed my heart with the edge of what you know
flew on a thought and while it was confusing
do you know do you feel that it's really moving

Don't say it don't say my love when your sad again
When you face up, you're face down my friend crawling on your knees

And you say
I want you lost inside myself again
And you say well you say my heart won't know wont know

Well it's face up and face down my head won't keep in line
Call on me fall off my soul when you said those things

Rising the sun pushed back the darkness of
the past of all you know
Caught in the sights of a wave in motion
So you see do you hear do you feel the emotion

Call on me call me my friend
Don't fall asleep, well you
face it and face down inside when we meet again

And you say
I want you lost inside myself again
and you say
well you say my heart won't know - won't know

Look at me - look at me now
Let me see your eyes

You say you're lost you say you're lost but they'll be no goodbyes
And you say
my words don't work my feelings are so tired

Well say nothing say nothing
Rest your mind a while

Searching To Find

Written By: Courtney Russell

Verse 1:
Keep your end and I won’t fall
Send myself to sleep in love
All these words flow into one
I’m cloaked in this sensation (of life)

Bridge:
Don’t believe what she said, I know better than the rest
Insensibility, don’t let it choke you

Chorus:
I can feel myself going somewhere else.
Don’t know where to find. I almost lost myself.
Feel it in your smile
Don’t know where to run. I almost lost myself

Verse 2:
Hand it down and don’t look back
Selfish hearts are yours no more
All these years draw close to me
Submerged in nostalgia

Bridge:
Don’t believe what she said, I know better than the rest
Insensibility, don’t let it choke you

Chorus:
I can feel myself going somewhere else.
Don’t know where to find. I almost lost myself.
Feel it in your smile
Don’t know where to run. I almost lost myself
