Track Name: No Hands
Take back your song,
it might be wrong.

Look Ma, I stand on the shivering sand.
Look Ma, no hands, no hands!
Look Ma, I stand on the shivering sand.
Look Ma, no hands, no hands.

I want no part
of this false start.
Just watch as I run.

Take back your song,
it might be wrong.

As I stand, as I run,
my feet are iron.

Don't tell me that I need,
don't.
Track Name: (not)
Your heart's going to break'
only when it wants to break.
Your heart's going to break
when it wants to break.

So roll the stone away, unafraid
though you are not alone
and never were.
We won't leave you there, there,
come out and face the sun's chilly glare.

Your heart never breaks
even when that's what it needs.
Your heart never breaks,
it would rather bleed.

So throw the windows wide, shatter them
for you are not alone
and never were.
Your blood needs the air, air.

And take your letter opener,
tarnished to so bright a dirty shine
in your hand,
plunge it in.

No-one can run on empty wounds.
No-one can run on empty wounds.
No-one can run on empty wounds,
not for long.
