I know it's early and not everyone has the album yet (all in good time, friends!). Shall we play a game of "Let's Figure Out the Lyrics Together?"

Sounds like a good idea! Smile

Let's start with the first single, Battle Cry. I bought the single when it first came out and have been trying to make out all the lyrics ever since. And it's been hard to do because of the layered and overlapping vocals!

But here's what I got. I fully acknowledge that this has more holes than Swiss cheese, at least in the first part of the song. The second half I'm much more sure of. Smile


Words are dripping from my blood, boy
My head's on fire
All the promises, you break them
And pretend you're mine

Let me shelter you
From her pretty smile
I'll erase her taste
For a little while
And their innocence
That can drive you wild
Barely hang on
I've barely stood strong

Chorus:
'Cause you belong to me
You belong to my arms
Hold in the night
Hear my battle cry
You belong to me
You belong to my lips
This is not goodbye
??

(overlapping vocals here, this is the part that's more forward in the mix)
You can't get everything that I've said silent
??How it sounds
Nothing's on her lips but the parts of my mind
Patching up the cracks in the walls and the windows
She will never love you the way that I do

Let me shelter you
From her pretty smile
I could wear her dress
For a little while
And her jaded grace
Wraps around her lies
You're not to blame
But I'm not the same

Chorus:
'Cause you belong to me
You belong to my arms
Hold in the night
Hear my battle cry
You belong to me
You belong to my lips
This is not goodbye
This is not goodbye

We, we, we, we were young and hungry
Scream, scream, scream that you want me only

You belong to me
You belong to my arms
Hold in the night
Hear my battle cry

You belong to me
You belong to my lips
This is not goodbye
This is not goodbye

You belong to me (I'll stand)
You belong to my arms (strong for you)
Hold in the night (I'll be here for you)
Hear my battle cry

You belong to me (I'll stand)
You belong to my lips (strong for you)
This is not goodbye
This is not goodbye

We (we), we (we), we (we), we were young and hungry
Scream (scream), scream (scream), scream (scream) that you want me only

Hearts (hearts) terrified (terrified) and breaking
Say (say) say (say) say (say)
You love me

This is what I've got. Some of the lines in the overlapping part in the middle make absolutely no sense, but I can't for the life of me figure them out.


The words are dripping
From my blood, boy
And my head's on fire
All the promises
You break them
And pretend you're mine

Let me shelter you
From her pretty smile
I'll erase her taste
For a little while
And her innocence
That can drive you wild
I barely hang on
I barely stand strong

Cus you belong to me
You belong to my arms
Hold me in midnight
Hear my battle cry
You belong to me
You belong to my lips
This is not goodbye
Might I draw the line here

(overlapping part 1)
You kept everything deaf as dead silence
Timid I canít hear how it sounds
Mouthings on her lips
Cutting up parts of my life
Patching up the cracks in the walls and the windows
She will never love you the way I do
Always at her dirt (always I deter)
Looks sharp butter knife

(overlapping part 2)
I can't envy
Tear in a (tiering a) work of sunset
No not there yet
Kissed your ghost I
Must make the most of the levy
Words are heavy

Let me shelter you
From her pretty smile
I could wear her dress
For a little while
And her jaded grace
Wraps around her lies
But youíre not to blame
But I'm not the same

And you belong to me
You belong to my arms
Hold me in midnight
Hear my battle cry
You belong to me
You belong to my lips
This is not goodbye
This is not goodbye

We, we, we
We were young and hungry
Scream, scream
Scream that you want me only

And you belong to me
You belong to my arms
Hold me in midnight
Hear my battle cry
You belong to me
You belong to my lips
This is not goodbye
This is not goodbye

I stand strong for you
Iíll wake up, Iíll wake up
I stand strong for you
Iíll wake up, Iíll wake up

We, we, weÖ
We were young and hungry
Scream, screamÖ
Scream that you want me only

My, hearts, terrified and breaking
Say again, say again
Say you love me

CLOSE THE WINDOWS!
(Let's trap the passion)
OF OUR MADNESS
(And our reaction)

She's no more than a vacant distraction.

Don't wanna go
Don't wanna stay
I watch your spine give out half way
You get so scared
And talk too brave
Can't let us die
Can't let us die away

We were the sun
We were the sea
Maybe you never wanted to be me
You were my air
My everything
I'm wide awake
You're still half asleep

It's dangerous to believe
I'm trying to receive

I'm on the edge.

If you need 'Water Breaks Stone' lyrics, BAM!

Also, we have a little something in the works, but need your help.

Thanks so much for 'Water Breaks Stone' lyrics !
Maybe it's too much to ask, but could you also post the "Hiding Places" lyrics please ?
