Track Name: Intro
Lying belly up on a doctor's bed
Incision in my chest, watch the blood run red
I heard right there what the doctor said
Said, "That woman done cut up your heart to shreds,
Replaced it with a cold metal heart instead
Soul still alive, but your heart is dead
Track Name: Metal Heart
I got a metal heart
Locked deep inside of me
And I think you got the key darlin'

I got you in my mind
And this is all the time
Don't know if I could let it go
Is it even possible

I can see God gave you what you need girl
To set my heart free

A night in the cold
Leaves absent from their trees
They flourish other worlds
Leaving me behind
The restless neighbors chat
Oblivious to me
And a star in the smoggy sky brings you back to me

I can see God gave you what you need

Set me free now
Baby set me free
Set my heart free
Track Name: Yellow Music Room
Pandora, molded from the blood red earth
A myth as ancient as her noble birth
First of her kind, yeah she's the prototype
She has everything she needs tonight

Well she looked at me with a carnivorous stare
Eyes cut through me in the midnight air
She'll be the end of me, this I swear

She stands beneath a bridge of garden green
Cigarette in hand, and now she's calling me
I say, "Let's go get lost and find a place to be.
I wanna tell you exactly how much you mean to me."

Well she said, "Come into my music room.
I'll give you all that I am, and my music is true.
But take heed, you know that there's a price to pay:
Your eyes will never see the light of day."
Oh the light of day, yeah the light of day
Oh I wanna run away.

And I want to run, but I can't turn away
My mind's made up, you know I'm here to stay
So I say farewell to the light of day
Farewell...
Track Name: Fall of Icarus
Living in a maze of a city with no way out
You know I had a plan to escape, but it all went south
I was trapped in this city, I was stuck in this town
Low on money, my luck was down
My only motive was to cross that ocean to freedom

Well I tried to touch the sun, but I aimed too high, now I'm falling
Yeah I tried to touch the sun, but I aimed too high, now I'm falling
To my knees
And I'm blind in both eyes and I cannot see
All this love I have in front of me
Well I tried to touch the sun, but I aimed too high, now I'm falling

They say in this life, just take only what you need
But I got lost in the depths of my greed
Wax on my wings, trying to take flight
Could not suppress my golden appetite
Yeah I lost sight of the road that leads to freedom
Freedom

Well I tried to touch the sun, but I aimed too high, now I'm falling
Yeah I tried to touch the sun, but I aimed too high, now I'm falling
To the sea
And I'm blind in both eyes and I cannot see
All my mistakes will be the death of me
Well I tried to touch the sun, but I aimed too high, now I'm falling

I'm falling on my knees now
And I'm begging the Lord please
Won't you lift me up from this sea of misery
Said I'm falling on my knees now
And I'm begging the Lord please
Won't you lift me up from the sea

They say in this life just take only what you need
But I got lost in the depths of my greed

Well I tried to touch the sun, but I aimed too high, now I'm falling
Said I'm blind in both eyes and I cannot see
All my mistakes now
Yeah I tried to touch the sun, but I aimed too high, now I'm falling
Track Name: Golden Crown
Little miss lover please settle down
A part of myself when you float around
Butterfly in your hair, won’t you come around
And give me your loving, your golden crown

And my lonely heart was black as night
And my soul was swallowed up by pride
But you brought with you the bluest light
And I knew that you could make it right

And you know I won’t be far behind you
When you make it to the other side
All the stars are shining bright beside you

All the waterfalls and leafy groves
Couldn’t bring to life my wilted rose
But you can see the shape I’m in
You alone can bring me back again

And you know I won’t be far behind you
When you make it to the other side
All the stars are shining bright beside you
I’m your Aries, you’re my Gemini
And my curse is slowly dissipating
You’re my beauty, I’m your ragged beast
And you know I’ll be forever waiting

The light in your eyes: a perfect glow
The time of our lives is now, you know
So give me your loving and don’t be slow
The light in your eyes: a perfect glow
Track Name: Would You
Would you leave him if I was the king of the world?
Would you leave him?
Track Name: One Hundred Days of Solitude
I’m gonna dig myself a hole
Dig it all the way underground
Yeah I'ma dig myself a hole
Dig it all the way underground
Spend my days in solitude
You know I don’t want nobody else around

Got my guitar and my books
That’s all in the world I need
Got my guitar and my books
S'all in the world I need
Yeah I don’t need no woman
No, she’ll only bring her misery
That's right

My friends keep knocking on my door
They want me to come outside and play
Yeah, they keep knocking on my door
They want me to come outside and play
Yeah, you know they start to worry
But I know I'm feeling okay

Well my beard grows long
But my heart gets thin
Yeah my beard grows long
But my heart gets thin
Yeah but there aiin’t nothing I can complain about
Lord, I don’t think I’ll ever step outside again
Track Name: Broken Halos
Winter came and
And our love it kept us warm
Throughout the night
Throughout the night we stayed 'til dawn
But summer came and
And drew us out into the world
Our love ran dry
Our love ran dry beneath summer skies

Who's to blame now for the love that's gone
We did no wrong girl
Was it just our time?
Where was the light?
Where was the light that led us home?
And broken halos littered all across the floor
The final product of this cold, cold war
Who won the fight?
Who won the fight? It's hard to say

You ride your train, love
Ride it through the stormy north
You're headed home now
It's time we part
We say goodbye
We say goodbye through caring eyes
Your broken heart
I keep it close to mine
My diagnosis: hope we heal with time
We'll be alright
We'll be alright as time goes by
