Track Name: All Roads Lead to War (Single Version)
Well, here I go I'm losing
Harm's swift fist has kissed me, now I'm bruising
And bleeding, just crawlin' to your door
Beggin' please, can I have some more?

Well, can you hear it comin'?
The end, it dances to the power lines I'm strummin'
And it's hummin' the tune taught by the storm
Singin' please, can I have some more?

Oh darlin' can I have some more?
Can I have some more?
It's like they always say, all roads lead to war
And it don't matter where you're goin' when it leads to what lied before
Baby, all roads lead to war

Well, here we go we're home free
Don't eat the apples that you pick from the country
For the city grows their fruit from trees of gore
So Alfred please, can I have some more?

While here we are, we're cryin'
Trouble only seems to find us when we're hidin'
And we're tryin' to whisper 'neath the roar
Whisper please, can I have some more?

Oh baby, can I have some more?
Can I have some more?
It's like they always say, all roads lead to war
And it's a better world a'comin' when you're hell-bound for the morgue
Baby, all roads lead to war

Oh baby, can I have some more?
Can I have some more?
It's like they always say, all roads lead to war
And it's a better world a'comin' when you're hell-bound for the morgue
Baby, all roads lead to war

Well here I go, I'm sinkin'
I only find some kind of comfort when I'm drinkin'
And I'm thinkin' of a good fix for to score
And seven years ago, can I have some more?

While all this world is broken
The wrong things were only said when I have spoken
But I've wrote them and I've felt them to my core
Writin' please, can I have some more?

Oh darlin' can I have some more?
Can I have some more?
It's like they always say, all roads lead to war
And it don't matter where you're goin' when it leads to what lied before
Baby, all roads lead to war

Track Name: Early Days of June
Lately there's been a hangin' stillness in the wind
But it's dyin' and it won't be born again
And lately the sky has turned as sad-eyed as the sin
That cries the tear drops to be tattooed to my skin
And I'm just thinkin' down the backroads of my youth
And I'm walkin' 'bout them early days of june
And maybe I killed them off a bit too soon
But there was nothing left to use

And I'm alright
Yes, I swear I'm doing fine
I'll look back only to find
Why a man is only as strong as his lies

And never once was the right way to heavy of a road
For the back that breaks beneath the path it holds
And now the rains a'screamin' like the silence that arose
From the bodies of my friends, feedin' the crows
And I'm just bleedin' every ounce of my doubt
That their wings have turned my body inside out
To hide the sun inside and amplify my blackened bowels
To sound the storm that rings about

And I'm alright
Yes, I swear I'm doing fine
I'll go back only to find
Why a man is only as strong as his lies

And I'm alright
Yes, I swear I'm doing fine
I'll go back only to find
Why a man is only as strong as his lies
