Lyrics

List of Secrets

Written By: Kris Degaust

It's time to wake up
to tell your story
before we're gone
everyone
they got their list of secrets
they got someone to give up
when you come to call

safe sound low ground
before the soldiers take us all
it's too late to get out
now bow to the new king of it all

make up your mind stop wasting time
make up your mind stop wasting time

rewind the sequence
play back in slow-mo
to see the crime
everyone
they got their list of reasons
reason they will sell out
when you come to call

safe sound low ground
before the soldiers take us all
it's too late to get out
now bow to the new king of it all

make up your mind stop wasting time (x4)
(solo)
make up your mind stop wasting time (x4)

Sara

Written By: Kris Degaust

a thousand miles in a getaway car
I got up early to get real far
not sure if I'll getaway at all
spent my last dime on gasoline
I'll keep on driving until I'm
far away from me

now just look at the state I'm in
I swore I'd never be back again
it's just a matter of how much time

five years seems like yesterday to me
like a tattooed name from memory
still stings guess it couldn't be that long
do you make me more or less like me
I'll tell you baby you know
exactly what I mean

now just look at the state I'm in
I swore I'd never be back again
it's just a matter of how much time

Sara hold me down, hold me down
I'm a little unsure of what we were before
Sara hold me down, hold me down
I'm a little unsure

Sara hold me down, hold me down
I'm a little unsure of what we were before
I'm a little unsure

a thousand miles in a getaway car
I got up early to get real far
not sure if I'll getaway at all

Admit It

Written By: Kris Degaust

Debts are due and I got to pay
I don't mind I just want you to admit it
you're only, a day away from all you've done
ten times a week
I thought of just this scene with both us in it
you're only, a day away from justice son

it's said and done
and all the little fights I thought I
lost I won.
it's just instinct I got no proof to go on.
And all we had I know now it's gone
what's said is done

I won't lie but i got to say
if I go down there is no way that you're winning
you're only, a day away from all you've done
I know it's cheap
but it's not the first or last time I'll be sinning
you're only, a day away from justice son

it's said and done
and all the little fights I thought I
lost I won.
it's just instinct I got no proof to go on.
And all we had I know now it's gone
what's said is done

sail me down the river
I know you'll come right after
sail me down the river
I know you'll come right after
sail me down the river
I know you'll come right after

it's said and done
and all the little fights I thought I
lost I won.
it's just instinct I got no proof to go on.
And all we had I know now it's gone
what's said is done

Waiting For The War

Written By: Kris Degaust

don't you want to hide
don't you want to hide your thoughts
don't you want a life
don't you want a life at all
don't you want to hide
don't you want a life

Where you are
Where you are
Where you are

they're waiting by the door
they're waiting for the war tonight
won't you come outside
won't you come outside and fight
they're waiting by the door
they're waiting for the war

Where you are
Where you are
Where you are

(do you want to hide)
and they're spilling blood outside your door
and they'll cut you down and they'll bring you war tonight
(do you want to hide)
tonight
and they're spilling blood outside your door
and they'll take your life and they'll bring you war tonight
tonight

t's a sign, it's a sign
it's a sign, it's a sign
it's a lie, it's a lie, it's a lie

and they're spilling blood outside your door
and they'll cut you down and they'll bring you war tonight
tonight
and they're spilling blood outside your door
and they'll take your life and they'll bring you war tonight
tonight
