Track Name: Forward
Hey kid, whatcha doing?
Jump in and lets get stupid
Close your eyes and make a wish
But I’ve got an itch for a graveyard shift
Make a life out of the dead
Dig up kings, take the crowns right off their heads
Little spot could be our own
We’ll build a throne out of bricks and bones
Stand up straight and be a man, kid
Tonight we’re graverobbing.
What’s a rat without his teeth?
What a lord without his royal ring?
I’ll take his hand for all his gold
But I’ll leave the rest to the worms and crows.
Track Name: Terrible Things
We all tell the same lies.
All monsters in disguise
Wanna swallow me up
But enough’s enough
How did I fit
These bones in my closet?
I just hang them all up,
but enough’s enough
Yeah enough’s enough

I got these terrible dreams
Where I do terrible things
And I don’t want to believe
No I don’t want to believe it’s you
That I am doing them to.

We all have those nightmares
Can’t tell if they’re real
Someone please wake me up
but enough’s enough
Yeah enough’s enough

I got these terrible dreams
Where I do terrible things
And I don’t want to believe
No I don’t want to believe it’s you
That I am doing them to.

I've got these terrible dreams
I’m biting nails, pulling teeth

I got these terrible dreams
Where I do terrible things
And I don’t want to believe
No I don’t want to believe it’s you
That I am doing them to.

I got these bad idle hands
that ache for blood and mayhem.
I got these terrible dreams
And I don’t want to believe
No I don’t want to believe it’s you
That I am doing them to.
Track Name: Bombs Away
Don’t wait on me, I’ll catch up soon.
I’m terrified but I’m trying to be brave for you.
They say we climb to not feel small
But darling, we’re pushing up just for the fall.
We’re never ever coming back down the way we came
We’re never ever coming back the same.

Scream bombs away, keep your eyes open.
We’ll never be this young again, this is our moment.
But I’m not afraid, deep down I know it.
You can’t always run and play it safe
You gotta jump just to fall into place.

Don’t wait on me, I’ll catch my breath
I’d look up but to see the to I’d break my neck
They say we’ll die, these wounds won’t heal
but we’ll reply, you gotta hurt just to know its real.

Meek and cautious, a life held hostage
There’s more for you and I, I cross my heart and hope to die
Let’s just stay like this, just two foolish kids
So caught up in their pretty world
They don’t know what it means to crash and burn

Scream bombs away and we’ll fall forever.
Track Name: Wild & Young
You can always be pardoned of the things you’ve done.
But you’re never gonna live down the things you should have.
I don’t want to wait for time to run down
So I’ll break the hourglass and just pour it out.

Let’s be reckless and make our messes.
Never gonna regret the scars we’re left with.

Let’s just be wild while we’re young
Have it all then give it all up
Run away with no place to go
But I know we call this home

You can only afraid of what you believe
So forget what they taught us now forget everything

Right now we’re leaving
A count down would somehow just steal it
Black out, it's nothing
To skip town like we’re running from something.

Let’s be endless like the nights we live in
I want to be reckless, I want to be reckless

We’re not sparks, we're shooting stars
Chasing our own light in the dark
Track Name: Watch Your Burn
You didn’t have to lie so well
Saying words you never felt
Cause I’ve seen your tail, your dirty nails
The ugly things you’d do for a dead man’s shoes
So I’ll see you all in hell

And I’ll just watch you burn
Yeah I’ll just watch you
Burn up.

Now you’re the moth around my flame
Dancing in our own ballet
So I pull you down, and spin you round
Such a pretty thing but I clip your wings
so you’ll never fly away.

You didn’t have to lie so well
I guess I’ll see you all in
