Track Name: Rust and Ruin
I've been thinking a lot lately
about where it all went wrong
About the times we fought and blamed each other
And the times we got along

It's hard not to hate
When hates the only feeling that makes sense
It's hard not to fear
When fear's what's keeping me standing straight

The foundations rotted, hey hey
Not built to last
Thought we were building something
Now it's all dead gone past

The foundations rotted, hey hey
Not built to last
If those four walls could talk
They'd say we breathed our last

If home is where the heart is
Be still my beaten heart
If time is the great healer
Take me back to the start

Be still, be still
Be still my beaten heart

If home is where the heart is
Be still my beaten heart
If time is the great healer
Take me back to the start

The foundations rotted
Not built to last
Thought we were building something
Now it's all dead gone past

The foundations rotted
Not built to last
If those four walls could talk
They'd say we breathed our last
Track Name: Oh Brother
Oh brother, where art thou?
You seem so far away
You've taken your chances
And joined up to the military
It sent a chill down my spine
When you told me on that rainy day
Back in the warmth of July

Be the best, said the paperwork
Kill or be killed, or maimed, or worse

What are they fighting for?
Something worth dying for?
Why are we giving more?
Something worth crying for?

Despite all I try, I don't believe in second chances
It was all lies, heroic romances

What are they fighting for?
Something worth dying for?
Why are we giving more?
Something worth crying for?

Brother
Saviour
Brother
Destroyer

I thought I'd do my part
I thought I'd try, to understand, so I followed in your footsteps
And saw the mess left behind
The coffins stacked on either side speak louder than the words
The families, torn in two, will always be haunted, by memories of you

And you, and you, and you, my heroes to help, my demons in halos
And you, and you, and you, my heroes to help, my demons in halos

Pick another penny
Pick another penny
Pick another penny

I hope it brings you luck
