Lyrics

Heroes to Whores

Written By: Shane Larmand, Ross vanEldik

Heroes to Whores,
Rights to the wars,
Babies to trains,
love to the pain,
See the Bush for the trees,
War for the peace?
War for freedom?
Control for dummies...

I see you standing,
and you're solemnly swearing,
to tell the truth, the whole truth,
It's nothing but a lie.

Engine to feel,
Mind over steel,
Seger to Chevy,
Kashmir to Puff Daddy,
Mothers to engines,
Lovers to Vengeance,
Christian to righteous,
us to you,

I see you standing,
and you're solemnly swearing,
to tell the truth, the whole truth,
It's nothing but a lie.

Threshold

Written By: Terence Katerynych

So much better,
Walking with a solid stride,
Tripping over shit all day gets me down,

I've come to figure it out,
It comes around,
light and time and the sound, the sound....

I've seen this before,
It's like an open door that you can't step through,
You push on through,

Time in, move around,
Look behind you at how it moves on,
Look behind you at how it moves on,

Look behind you,
Look behind you.

Blood from a Stone

"Take what you can,
and roll with the best of yourself."
A quote from a friend,
A natural born Kerouac.

It's been a long, long road,
And I think i'd have to say,
I got two more reasons to you do,
To raise my glass to happier days.

Blood from a Stone,
who'd have known we'd carry it this far,
Feel that tombstone shadow,
It's hangin' on your every thought.

There's fire in the water,
and the devil's in the woods'
I've got a funny, funny feeling,
A feeling that ain't so good.
