Violate 02:28
You fucked it The earth has no water Down beneath the shadows they said they'd never Follow the dark Down where nothing ever happens Your way of life isn't healthy Your way of life violates your own beliefs Hurt your lungs bad where nothings feeling Heart bruised, forest hangs like a thread Down beneath your head Down where nothing ever happens Your way of life isn't healthy Your way of life violates your own beliefs

I opened the window I didn’t look down I got too scared Thinking I’d drown I got too scared Thinking I’d drown Thinking I’d beat myself to the ground I opened the window I didn’t look down I got to scared Thinking I’d drown I die, I die, I die I opened the window I saw grace She’s looking at me laughing in my place
3.
When all the world is a hopeless jumble And the raindrops tumble all around Heaven opens a magic lane When all the clouds darken up the skyway There's a rainbow highway to be found Leading from your windowpane To a place beyond the sun Just a step beyond the rain Somewhere over the rainbow Way up high There's a land I heard of once in a lullaby Somewhere over the rainbow Skies are blue And the dreams that you dare to dream really do come true Someday I'll wish upon a star and wake up where the clouds are far behind me Where troubles melt like lemon drops away above the chimney tops, that's where you'll find me Somewhere over the rainbow Bluebirds fly Birds fly over the rainbow, why then, oh, why can't I? If happy little bluebirds fly, beyond the rainbow, why, oh, why can't I?

Blackbird 03:05
Blackbird singing in the dead of night Take those broken wings and learn to fly All your life, you were only waiting for this moment to arise To arise Blackbird singing in the dead of night Take those sunken eyes and learn to see All your life, you were only waiting for this moment to be free Blackbird fly Blackbird fly Blackbird fly Into the light of the dark black night Into the life of the darkest night Into the night of the dark black night Into the dark of the darkest night Blackbird singing in the dead of night All your life Blackbird singing in the dead of night Take those broken wings and learn to fly All your life, you were only waiting for this moment to arrive To arrive
