Track Name: Monsters & Men
Oh take me back to the place where I am from
Oh watch my back, ‘cause the monsters are free to roam
Oh take me back to the place where I am from
Oh watch my back, for I am just a man
I am just a man, I am just a man

And you tell me how it is
You make your own excuses
And you tell me how it is
You’d never be where you were if I was around

Oh take me back to the place where I have grown
And oh watch my back cause the monsters are free to roam
Oh take me back to the place where I am from
Oh watch my back, for I am just a man
I am just a man, I am just a man

And you tell me how it is
You make your own excuses
And you tell me how it is
You’d never be where you were if I was around
Track Name: The Last Night
I took a rope around the moon
And brought it down to you
You said ‘Don’t hold your breath.’
I had a close encounter
With death himself a time or two
In fact, the grim reaper just left
And I’m thinking I should too

I’d take it back for you
On and on and on
It’s over
I won’t forget you

I took that rope
Made a noose and gave it back to you
You said ‘Go to hell’
Well I’m here to tell you honey,
I’ve been to hell a time or two
In fact, liked the way it felt
I’m thinking you will too
Track Name: Modern Tomb
Just an unmarked face
In an unmarked place
Where no one knows your name

In a welded room
Or a modern tomb
No one knows your name

And I hardly knew you

What’s on my mind
I tell you all the time
‘cause I’m spinning in circles
As time passes by
I could man up
And put the blame on you
Where it’s rightly deserved
Start wearing your shoes
‘cause I found them all tattered
And bleached from the sun
I cleaned them up
And wore them as my own
The soles wore out fast
And the blisters poked through
So if the shoe fits
I suggest that you do
What you were you meant to do
What you were meant to be
A memory

(And I let life pass by)

Just an unmarked face
In an unmarked place
Where no one knows your name
In a welded room
Or a modern tomb
Where no one knows your name

And I hardly knew you…
Track Name: The Door
Close the door, stay for awhile
My childhood friend
It’s been a long time and I’ve been wondering
How you’ve been
It’s been the same since you left
Nothing has changed

Nothing’s changed
Nothing ever changes
My friend

I wanna know how life’s been for you
Out on the road
I’m sure you’ve met so many people
That will help you grow
They’ll forget your face
Make you wish you had a place to call home


Waiting for the end…
Track Name: Grunt
I grew up from the dust and mud
The rusted, untrusted, weathered grunt that I've become
I sit outside, pray for waves
Ask for him to make it rain for forty days
I'm tired of seeing the greed
The cash machine doesn't bleed like you and me
I've known too few and I've seen too much
But my sword will never cut the book enough

This isn't what they intended
