Track Name: Now We Will Be Brothers
You said your heart was like this stone sheered from a ledge, "Nice and sharp, and so delicate."
Then you did begin to cut into our fingers.
"Now we will be brothers, you and me. We always will be brothers."
I held it up into the light to see the edge glowing white and dripping crimson red. Reflecting in the water, in shone like a diamond. And I threw it in the river. That's what I want is to throw it in the river.

I threw your heart like a stone into the water.
I thought it'd cut through the surface like a knife.
We watched it sail through the night like a moon
And skip once or twice - Then it disappeared.

I watched your eyes well up with fear at the sound of the reflection lapping all around. "Don't be afraid, we'll go and find another. There'll always be another. That's what they say is there'll always be another.
You ran your hand across the stone, it felt so smooth, not too sharp and then you did remove a piece that was so perfect it shone like a diamond. Then you threw it in the river. I don't know why, but you threw it in the river.

You threw your heart like a stone into the water.
You thought it'd cut through the surface like a knife.
We watched it sail through the night like a moon
And skip once or twice - Then it disappeared.
Track Name: Give 'em What They Want
Give em what they want
Give em all they'll ever need
Pile all the carvings on the flame
Give em some lies
Go ahead and sing for them
Just get em across that great highway
You wanna come?
I'll be around for you
Just keep your eyes on the concrete sky.

Give em what they want
okay
Give em what the want
okay

We want some colors
And we want some imagery
We want to not want anything
We want some birds to cover up the concrete sky
And fly away with all our words.

Give em what they want
okay
Give em what the want
okay

Give em what they want
Give em all they'll ever need
Pile all the carvings on the flame
Give em some lies
Go ahead and sing for them
Just get em across that great highway.

Give em what they want
okay
Give em what the want
okay
