Track Name: Welcome to this World
Welcome to this world, you'll need a place to live. A place to die will be provided at a random place and time. You'll learn to stay calm and play it safe, til the right one comes along.
If you tell them the truth, they'll never let you go. If you tell them the truth, they'll never let you go out to the cinema with a young man in your best friends clothes....welcome to this world.
You'll learn to watch your step and take your time. We've never learned from our mistakes. You'll want to lose your mind, you'll want to break. But we're not that kind.
If you tell them the truth, they might just let you go. Down by the freeway, under the overpass. In someone else's clothes...who knows. Welcome to this world.
Track Name: One Act Play
I could say, life is not a stage. You don't have to play the part you're given. It's a crying shame, the time we waste when we play the roles as written.
Track Name: The Great Divide
We've heard his story before: how he came west after the war had been won. He even took a native wife; she brought some comfort to a life, otherwise cold as driven snow. But he still missed the ocean that he swam in long ago.
And they knew not how to grieve, for the things they'd never see. But they knew enough to yearn for the things they'd never learn. Like how the light escaped the eyes of their youngest child.
They brought six children to this world. Four bouncing boys and two fine girls, but the youngest died at the age of five. Next morning she was buried in the frozen riverside.
And they knew not how to grieve, for the things she'd never see. But they knew enough to yearn for the things she'd never learn. Like how the light, so softly flies, cross the Great Divide.
The rest grew up and moved away. They built the towns and rode the trains, cross the great divide and the mountains high. Yet still their souls were anchored in that frozen river side.
And they knew not how to grieve, for the things they'd never see. But they knew enough to burn for the things they'd never learn. Like how the light, so softly flies, cross the Great Divide. How light, so swiftly flies, cross the Great Divide. Like how the light, so swiftly flies, cross the Great Divide. How light, so swiftly flies, cross the Great Divide.
Track Name: Behold The Scales
Behold the scales as he sheds his skin; they are green and gold again. And his eyes are cloudy no more, and he's hungry like never before.
There's a heart beating in the grass; it is small and warm and fast. And she knows just where to run when a shadow crosses the sun.

Behold the scales, you can't perceive
The seconds coil into centuries
The racing heart, the beating wing
The soundless strike or the deadly sting

There's a wave crashing on the shore, where Leviathan breathes no more. And the children will gather his bones when the ages have turned them to stone.
There's a girl gazing through the glass, she has found her mate at last. And she knows just where to run when a shadow crosses the sun.

Behold the scales, you can't perceive
A billion years or a century
The speed of light, a hornet's sting
Behold the Scale.
Track Name: Tall Dark Trees
Little bird tappin' on my window pane, are you trying to distract me from my dark refrain? Did they hear us talking in the tall dark trees--god only knows what they'll do to me, god only knows what they'll do to me.

Little bird tappin' on my window pane, are you trying to distract me from my lonely game? Did they see us tangled in the tall green grass--there was golden light, but it's fading fast. A little bit of light, but it's fading fast.
Track Name: 21st Century Jukebox
You are the desert, I am the stars. I shine, but I cannot warm your heart. Put a quarter in my hand, let me hear that song again. You are the mountains, I am the snow. Soft and white til I break you apart and we crash...to the valley bellow.
