Track Name: Every Head Bowed, And Every Eye Closed
The city is a sound
a cracked, unbroken sound
lines that jaggedly
drift up and down

Boxes and blinking lights
and windows like empty eyes
an ever-fixed mark
under the burning heart

And all the while you smile

Every head bowed, and every eye closed
whisper something into the breeze…
Like the old man and the sea
I could just drift and sleep...
Every eye closed, and every head down
except yours…
You stare like a statue

Heaven knows
that you've been warned
Oh no…
Rips and tears won't be mystically be healed.

Lady in the rye,
how do the little ones die?
Do the little ones die
when you smile?

Don't you ever fold!
Don't you ever blink!
The left hand of God brings us to our knees...

Every head bowed, and every eye closed
whisper something into the breeze…
Like the old man and the sea
I could just drift and sleep...
Every eye closed, and every head down
except yours…
You stare like a statue

Those eyes, an undefeated blue
An undefeated you...
Track Name: The Nation Is Watching (Arena Ready)
The nation is watching
A nation is watching

Behind closed doors
surrounding a box
of glowing whores
and headless children

Suck it up, child!

Here comes the whip…
(suck it up!)

Neighbors are watching
The neighbors are watching

And maybe we'll be there with all the "chickies"
hand-in-hand in the meat line
smile and singing,
"Money!"

Here comes the whip… child
(suck it up!)
