Track Name: The Infection
The infection
Grabs you by the throat
You're so reckless
You never wear a coat

I put my faith in modern medicine
While you put yours in the stars
My wounds healed so many years ago
While you still wear fresh scars

The infection
Grabs you from behind
It consumes you
First your body then your mind

I put my faith in modern medicine
While you put yours in the stars
My wounds healed so many years ago
While you still wear fresh scars

You need to see a doctor
You need to see a doctor
You need to see a doctor
(Better call the doctor, baby)
You need to see a doctor
(Better call the doctor, baby)
You need to see a doctor
(Better call the doctor, baby)
You need to see a doctor
NOTHING ELSE CAN STOP IT, BABY!
Track Name: Under the Lilacs
If it’s up to me
And I know it isn’t
I’d live my life and
Die at my own choosing
Let me live until I’m ready
To cast away the good, the bad
Then bury my weary bones
Under the lilacs

Uh oh
Uh oh
Uh oh
Uh oh

Take courage, Dear
The earth is all that lasts
Take courage, Dear
Sometimes the end is fast
You’ll never miss
The life you never knew
The one you had’s enough
To see you through

If the sun is shining
And the green is on the meadow
Take one last look
And then one final breath
I’ll know I’m finally ready
To let it go, the here, the now
And bury my tattered soul
Under the lilacs

Uh oh
Uh oh
Uh oh
Uh oh

Take courage, Dear
The earth is all that lasts
Take courage, Dear
Sometimes the end is fast
You’ll never miss
The life you never knew
The one you had’s enough
To see you through

Oh
I was wrong
I messed around
And wasted time
And waited far too long
Time
Moves so slow
Now I’m just a castaway
With nowhere else to go
Track Name: Dottie, Queen of the West
Dottie, Queen of the West
Pull off your boots
Put your feet up and rest a while
You’ve been riding the range
For far too long
And you can’t even force a smile

We all know you’re strong
But if silences are golden
Then your banker is beholden
To your pain
Your pain

Dottie, Queen of the West
Take off your hat
Set your cares by and rest a spell
You’ve been riding the fences
Long since dawn
Sooner or later the strain will tell

We all know you’re strong
But if silences are golden
Then your bank account is swollen
With your pain
Your pain

Ooooh, ooooh
Silences
Ooooh, ooooh
Your pain

Silences (your pain)
Silences (your pain)
Silences (your pain)
Track Name: Frozen
You say
You’ve left it all behind
No mention of the muse
No measure of the meaning
It wasn’t worth your time
To do the harder work
To double down their dares
To dive into the deep
You couldn’t spare the time

I’ve seen the end result
You end up half a man
An empty shell
Frozen by fear of the thing you’ll never be

You say
It isn't worth the pain
Of falling on your face
Of failing all your friends
You'll never try again
Resigned to settle down
It’s just a slippery slope
To sleepwalking through days
Afraid to try again

I’ve seen the end result
You end up half a man
An empty shell
Frozen by fear of the thing you’ll never be

You were frozen by fear
And paralyzed by doubt
For so many years

Terrified by truths
And tormented by doubt
For so many years

I’ve seen the end result
It takes its toll
And all these twenty years
Frozen by fear of the thing you’ll never be
Track Name: Anthem
It was ha-ha-hard on the outside
When we were looking in
Nobody ever believed it
That guys like us could win
But now that we finally made it
And just when it’s getting good
Somebody’s trying to fade it
As if they ever could

NO WAY
Uh uh
NO WAY
Uh uh

Well it’s ha-ha-hard on the inside
Now we found our own way in
It’s all too clear that we can’t stop now
So I guess we’d better begin
If bad luck carried us this far
Then it’s good for another round
Did you ever really expect us
To go down without a sound?

NO WAY
Uh uh
NO WAY
Uh uh

You never noticed
Never appreciated
The hidden talents of
The small-town boys you underrated

It was ha-ha-hard on the outside
When we were looking in
Nobody ever believed it
That guys like us could win
But now that we finally made it
And just when it’s getting good
Somebody’s trying to fade it
As if they ever could

NO WAY
Uh uh
NO WAY
Uh uh
NO WAY
Uh uh
NO WAY
