Track Name: Stormy, Stormy Night
I’m planning a fair fight without you
My calendar has been crossed out in blue
Numbers trapped in threads of ink
Announcing expeditions too soon

But on a stormy night our bodies finally made a truce
But on a stormy night they knew just what to do

You glanced before you disappeared
I’m flooded by these senseless downpours
Could currents still affect your roots
Cling onto my crumbling youth

But on a stormy night our bodies finally made a truce
But on a stormy night they knew just what to do

And on a stormy night you knew just what to do
And on a stormy night these electric charges sheltered me and you
And on a stormy night the heavens screamed for you
Track Name: War is Kind
Lyrics inspired by Stephen Crane's book of poems War is Kind (1899)

One feels the air so suffocating
But war is kind, yeah war is kind
Swarms of glory dissipating
But war is kind, yeah war is kind

You fear seeing battle in his eyes
And shallow trenches can’t contain all the red and gold
My Dear
These men were born to march and die
Allowed to roam an empty plain to be swallowed whole
My Dear

Exposing youth to burning hearts
To half filled promises with dirt and marble lids as crowns
My Dear
But bless the sword that plows this land
The wrath of god upon us swift and flaring

They rode fast and mighty glistening
Leaving all behind
The colors at their door still waiting there
I see the silver flickering
Banners flying fast
The flutter in the sky announce the end

But poor bloody thing…
