Track Name: Episode 1: Arrival
they had the flood lights on you
saying you’re not gonna make it this time
they beat your body
took your will then they took your mind
sent you back to me, said,
"get what you can then leave him behind"

they’re gun gun gunning for you

your lips curl out from your face
like they got something to prove
and when they’re moving at night I think
you’re finally telling the truth
you’ve been running your whole life singing,
"if you’ve got nothing you’ve got nothing to lose"

they’re gun gun gunning for you, love

when you wake up you’ll be in your own bed
when you wake up it won’t be your thoughts in your head
wake up wake up wake up wake up
wake up wake up wake up wake up

they’re gun gun gunning
they’re gun gun gunning
they’re gun gun gunning for you
Track Name: Episode 2: Dance of the Dead
Were you a ghost, were you a dream, were you just meant to hurt me

I've had this headache for six days straight
and I know it's you knocking around in there
this heart aches but it just won't break
and it's just not fair, it's just not fair

that you stepped out of a poem I'd read
you were dark and brooding, I was sure you were dead
but you were singing and laughing and dancing and praying as you talked me
through the night

saying "it'll be all right, it'll be all right, it'll be all right"

Were you a ghost, were you a dream, were you just meant to hurt me

you were the wind blowing through this house
coming up my lungs and out my mouth
but you don't talk to me anymore
and I'm trying to be strong, I'm trying to be strong

"it'll be all right, it'll be all right, it'll be all right"

Were you a ghost, were you a dream, were you just meant to hurt me
Were you a ghost, were you a dream, were you just meant to hurt me
Track Name: Episode 3: Checkmate
You’re sitting at the table
watching jacks fly around
making bets you can’t pay
letting chips fall to the ground

made your money selling your torture
made your friends by being so lonely
got your name hiding what you knew
they couldn’t pin it on you, pin it on you

don’t follow me, don’t follow me (no, no, no)
stay with me, walk with me

got your hands in your pockets
clutching at the fabric of a green, green dress
it’s the last that you took from her
on the day that she left, the day that she left

don’t follow me, don’t follow me (no, no, no)
stay with me, walk with me
don’t follow me, don’t follow me (no, no, no)
stay with me, walk with me

you get up and your chair tips back
bullets are flying and you laugh laugh laugh

just give up, you won’t get her back
smoke is rising and you laugh laugh laugh

don’t follow me, don’t follow me (no, no, no)
stay with me, walk with me

don’t follow me, don’t follow me (no, no, no)
stay with me, walk with me
Track Name: Episode 4: The Chimes of Big Ben
Can't walk ahead
Can't fall back
You can't side-step this one
You can try, you can try, you can try

Can't walk ahead
Can't fall back
You can't side-step this one
You can try, you can try, you can try, you can try, you can try, you can try, you can try
Try to run, try to run, ru-uh-uh-uhn, just run

It's gonna take quiet, and it's gonna take tact
And it's gonna take a heart, beat the lies from the facts
They got their dogs, at your heels
And I got my hands on whatever I can steal

Can't walk ahead
Can't fall back
You can't side-step this one
You can try, you can try, you can try

Can't walk ahead
Can't fall back
You can't side-step this one
You can try, you can try, you can try, you can try, you can try, you can try, you can try
Try to run, try to run, ru-uh-uh-uhn, just run

The line is drawn, and it's east or west
Takes more than charm, if you're gonna get me to confess
They got their dogs, and they're at my heels
And I got a heart, so beaten it can't feel

Can't walk ahead
Can't fall back
You can't side-step this one
You can try, you can try, you can try

Can't walk ahead
Can't fall back
You can't side-step this one
You can try, you can try, you can try, you can try, you can try, you can try, you can try
Try to run, try to run, ru-uh-uh-uhn, just run

Track Name: Episode 6: Many Happy Returns
I lost my heart in a desert of the blackest ocean
gave up sight to unearthly visions
of death’s chariot pulling up to my gate
telling me that I’ve got a debt to pay

now, who’s afraid of the dark
when you keep awake, every day is marked
who’s afraid of the dark

I kept running, kept hoping for a change
kept moving the pieces kept shifting the blame
he said my time now runs short let's play
just keep breathing baby one more day

who’s afraid of the dark
when you keep going, 'cause you’re afraid to stop
who’s afraid of the dark
every dawn you walk right back through that same door
you reach up and cry out
NO more more more more more more more more

now who’s afraid of the dark
when you keep awake, every day is marked
who’s afraid of the dark
when you keep awake 'cause everyday is marked
who's afraid of the dark
who’s afraid?

I know you want to lay down and sleep
until you don’t wake up
I know you want to lay down your body
for an idea that’s made up

it would be easier it would it be clear
if I could go on just believing
but doesn’t have to end right here
I liked you best when you are singing

is it over, is it over?
baby it is over.

I know you want to lay down and sleep
until you don’t wake up
I know you want to lay down your body
for an idea that’s made up

it would be easier it would it be clear
but harmony doesn’t come to the living
but doesn’t have to end right here
I liked you best when you are asking

is it over, is it over?
baby it is over.

it didn’t matter what the words were, boy you had a feeling
it didn’t matter how dead we were, it felt like living
it doesn’t matter what the words are girl you got a feeling
it doesn’t matter how dead we are, it feels like living

is it over, is it over?
baby it is over.

For a change of mind
But you'll be waitin
For a long long time

don’t accuse me, you got more than me to lose

And I know you're waitin
For a change of mind
But you'll be waitin
For a long long time

and it would take a lobotomy
to let go of the memory
Of what it felt to be free
Of what it felt to be free
Of what it felt to be free

And I know you're waitin
For a change of mind
But baby you'll be waitin
For a long long time
Track Name: Episode 14: Hammer Into Anvil
Your body is singing put it on the stage
My bones are rattlin in their cage
Your chivalry’is a cancer it’s not brave
I don’t have the answer but don’t want to be saved

Take off your mask when you talk to me
Take off your mask when you talk to me
Let your clothes fall so I can see
Take off your mask when you talk to me

Your voice cuts through the sky like a windmill
I see myself in your eyes when you hold still
We can start over once i leave this hospital
When my heart stops beating hammer in to anvil

Take off your mask when you talk to me
Take off your mask when you talk to me
Let your clothes fall so I can see
Take off your mask when you talk to me
Take off your mask when you talk to me
Take off your mask when you talk to me
Let your guard down so we can be free
Take off your mask when you talk to me

to be there when the fires came
when the fires came

you you you have just been poisoned
Track Name: Episode 16: Once Upon a Time
If they want the truth
They’ll just come take it
if they want proof
They’ll just create it

In their ties and suits
Win or lose
It’s degree absolute
It’s degree absolute

Go on escape
you can’t go home
Come back it’s fate
you’re still on your own

In fatigues and boots
You don’t get to choose
It’s degree absolute
It’s degree absolute

In their browns and blues
Forgive what is due
It’s degree absolute
Degree absolute

In their ties and suits
Win or lose
It’s degree absolute
It’s degree absolute

In fatigues and boots
You won’t get to choose
It’s degree absolute
It’s degree absolute

In their browns and blues
Forgive what is due
It’s degree absolute
degree absolute
Track Name: Episode 17: Fall Out
You say all you need is love
But I think there’s more out there than that
You say that love is all you need
But I still want more than that

You say that we’re free to go

You say if we go we’re free
Give it to me confess

These bones are gonna walk around
These bones are gonna walk around
Wake up resign fall out
These bones are gonna walk around

You say til death do us part
I say it’s gone inablink

You are my missing link

I say it’s time to stand up
This is the ultimate test
You can’t Stand up to time
Give it to me confess

These bones are gonna rise again
These bones are gonna rise again
Speak up resign fall out
These bones are gonna rise again
