"Running From A Gamble" (2011)

Intro lyrics - Company of Thieves

And what you want, is what I need
We don't talk, we don't feed each other lines

What shame, not to cry
I'll defend you till the day I die

Queen Of Hearts lyrics - Company of Thieves

Meet me in the middle of my mind, and no one else
I've been waiting here now for a while, I need your help
Like the time you tore my skin and all the world went blank
Never felt such real escape- it bled into the day

I stress talking so much that it hurts, then
Can't speak but a word to a lover that was

I'm gonna paint myself aside, like something second in line
Just gonna paint myself aside, like something second in line

Meet me in the middle of the night; I never sleep
Since you told me all the secrets that I swore to keep
In my dreams I can make love to you without a fight
And sometimes I wonder if it's wrong or if it's right

I stress talking so much that it hurts, then
Can't speak but a word to a lover that was

I'm gonna paint myself aside- like something second in line
Just gonna paint myself aside- like something second in line

Here, within the walls, I cannot take all the wreck involved (it's contagious)
Here, within the walls, I cannot take it- all the wreck involved

Everyone's taking their cards
As usual, I'll be the Queen of Hearts

I'm gonna paint myself aside- like something second in line
Just gonna paint myself aside- like something second in line
I'm going silver
All over silver

Modern Waste lyrics - Company of Thieves

Go to his house, he'll make you a big star
Offer your power, turn and face the camera
Makin' a movie, isn't that what you want?

Dying to recover, never really knowing better
Spinning all the things you thought that you deserved
Dying to recover, never really knowing

Ready or not! I can't support you with my part-time gig
It's all that I've got- what would it take to walk away from this?
You say we can make it, what's the difference?
Think that we can make it on our own

Wish all your life that you'll be forgiven
Feelin' the weight of your new addiction
Searching outside you for all the answers

Dying to recover, never really knowing better
Spinning all the things you thought that you deserved
Dying to recover, never really knowing

Ready or not! I can't support you with my part-time gig
It's all that I've got- what would it take to walk away from this?
You say we can make it, what's the difference?
Think that we can make it?oh no

Honey, what's the face? We won't live forever in this way
You look good as spoon-fed in a daze, if you're wondering
HONEY, WHAT'S THE FACE? We're just getting by inside a cage
I think this is borderline insane, if you're wondering

Ready or not! I can't support you with my part-time gig
It's all that I've got- what would it take to walk away from this?
You say we can make it, what's the difference?
Think that we can make it?oh no

Say that we can make it
Hide the pictures and put us in our places
On our own

Look Both Ways lyrics - Company of Thieves

Karen went to the store, but she forgot her pearls
Tried to pawn off with charm, scheming skilled little girl

All the children, they all know where all the naughty little children go when they start to grow

For so long you've buckled under a watchful eye
Never feel alive until you are risking your life
Risking your life, you're right
Lucky pinned to the fence, I was digging in my pocket
For the change that I had left, had won it in the schoolyard

All the children, they all know where all the naughty little children go when they start to grow

For so long you've buckled under a watchful eye
Never feel alive until you are risking your life
Risking your life, you're Right

Look left, look right. Look both ways before you.
Look left, look right. Look both ways!

Making a mess just to clean it up later
Looking on forward to the Sunday paper
Making a mess---

Oh ooh oh, ooh oh, ooh oh oh oh oh, ooh oh oh

For so long you've buckled under a watchful eye
And you never feel alive until you are risking your life, but

All the children, they've been told where all the naughty little children go when they all start to grow

Oh ooh oh, yes they will grow

Never Come Back lyrics - Company of Thieves

Slow turn out on the corner
I will paint your picture and post it in the street
And you can best believe
I'll kill you like I want to
I will bury you in deep

All the thoughts I think of you are constant now
Stones will cover up your eyes and keep you from the sea...

Now everyone's on top of it
You're runnin' from a gamble
Even the nosy neighbors turn
I'll mark my lesson learned

All the thoughts I think of you are constant now
Crowds will gather in their black dress, sing a melody...

How you cleared the room that night, broke the mirror and spilled the wine
And when your mother died, made me sign the line
My body still, against my will

You're dirty, sick. I don't exist.

Ooh ooh ooh, ahh ahh ahh ahh
Ooh ooh ooh, ahh ahh ahh ahh
You'll never come back
You'll never come back!

Nothing's In The Flowers lyrics - Company of Thieves

In life, for some things we testify
In our love, for some things we magnify

Your boots are heavy with the undertow
In your hands, your violent piano

See the sun coming through
All the angles of all the wars we won
But we never let it go into the deepest truce of emotions
And on, and on, and on

Lost and found and nothing's in the flowers
Broken truths upon the empty houses
Lost and found and nothing's in the flowers
Broken truths

Your work is wicked with efficiency
For your play, you pirated emergency

See the sun coming through
All the angles of all the wars we won
But we never let it go into the deepest truce of emotions
And on, and on, and on

Lost and found and nothing's in the flowers
Broken truths upon the empty houses
Lost and found and nothing's in the flowers
Broken truths

Try a little!
Won't you take the first step
And give a little!
So that nothing will be left

Death Of Communication lyrics - Company of Thieves

Honestly, my honesty was always what I gave for taking your bread
I never though you would have hung it high above as you did over my head

Ever since you came into my life I always felt a little misled
I tried to read the signs, tried to stay in the lines but shapes were always changing

Almost fooled me when you said just

Sell your soul for someone's goal,
Maybe then you'll have a friend!
Sell your soul to be controlled,
Maybe then you'll have a friend!

Everything we'll ever need is deep inside of our limitless beings
We struggle and we fight 'cause it feels good to wonder why our lives are happening

Almost fooled me when you said just

Sell your soul for someone's goal,
Maybe then you'll have a friend!
Go on, sell your soul to be controlled,
Maybe then you'll have a friend!

Hidden in your history, written in your memory-
Oh you didn't know it's
Hid in your history, writ in your memory- say you don't know it!

Sell your soul for someone's goal,
Maybe then you'll have a friend!
Go on, sell your soul to be controlled,
Maybe then you'll have a friend...

In the death of, the death of, the death of communication!

King Of Dreams lyrics - Company of Thieves

You came along, you came along
Ooh-la
Wanting a whole lot of money, wanting a whole lot of fame
You're looking strong, walking tall
Ooh-la
Chalking a whole lot of numbers, dropping a whole lot of name
You came along, a Christian son
Ooh-la
Digging a whole lot of gold, raising a whole lot of game
You rambled on and said it all
Ooh-la
Ohh-la, la la

In the wake of ridicule with your arms raised
You'll blame it on the other man
Was a monster in his day
Born to take the weight

You came along, you came along
Ooh-la
Wanting a whole lot of money, wanting a whole lot of fame
You're looking strong, walking tall
Ooh-la
Chalking a whole lot of numbers, dropping a whole lot of name
You rambled on and said it all
Ooh-la
Ohh-la, la la

In the wake of ridicule with your arms raised
You'll blame it on the other man
Was a monster in his day
(he was) Born to take the weight

Here now- ooh look who's on display
Ooh a lion in a cage
Yes sir, a rebel in his day

Gorgeous / Grotesque lyrics - Company of Thieves

There's nothing more gorgeous or grotesque than the sight of the garbage dumped on the sides of the railroad tracks
In the morning, on my way to work, I see them- little lumps- just glittering in the sunshine
What a messy way to say thank you
What a messy way to say thank you
Oh, we need a closeness

There's nothing more helpless or hopeless than the birds of the city streets, with the dirt on their heavy wings
In the evening, on my way to sleep, I hear them- screaming out into a bitter melody
What a messy way to say thank you
What a messy way to say thank you
Oh, we need a closeness

'Cause when I wake
I am so far out from reach
I am so far from

We need a closeness, a harmless closeness
Oh we need a closeness, a harmless closeness!

Syrup lyrics - Company of Thieves

Days and days and dollar bags of time, feel the everlasting tide
Rows of houses, all are painted white
I lost you in the dead of night

Your love syrup, so sweet, I feel dangerous indeed
Your love syrup, so sweet

I held you in a deep blanket of sound, no one here to find us out
Never thought that you would come around
Close and clean, a hit on the mouth
Right now in a morning light, I would let you have me until you find
In bed, just like you, I let the dark into the room

Your love syrup, so sweet, I feel dangerous indeed
Your love syrup, so sweet

I know I made a mistake because I missed you
On the way down, on the way down
I know I made a mistake because I missed you
On the way down, on the way down
I know I made a mistake because I missed you
I still do, I still do, I still do
I know I made a mistake because I missed you
On the way down on the way down
Your love syrup, so sweet, I feel dangerous indeed
Your love syrup, so sweet
And it's so sweet, Ah ha and it's so sweet

But it's a damn shame!
It's a damn shame
It's a damn shame we couldn't be...

Tallulah lyrics - Company of Thieves

We didn't have the money to tear it down, down
We didn't have the money to build it uh, uh, uh, uh, uh uh uh up
We didn't have the funding to make a name for ourselves?
What did you do?

Ooh girl. Be my girl!
You know there was death in Tallulah,
Don't turn your eyes away
Ooh girl! Be my girl!
You know there was death yeah

We didn't have the money to tear it down, down
We didn't have the money to build it uh, uh, uh, uh, uh uh uh up
We didn't have the funding to make a name for ourselves?
What did you do?

Ooh girl. Be my girl!
You know there was death in Tallulah,
Don't turn your eyes away
Ooh girl! Be my girl!
You know there was death yeah

Nothin' to see, or to learn, or to sell, or to send, or receive anymore
Ain't nothin' to see, or to learn, or to sell, or to send, or receive anymore
No one's home! Ain't no one home anymore.
No one's home!
Hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey!

Ooh girl. Be my girl!
You know there was death in Tallulah,
Don't turn your eyes away
Ooh girl! Be my girl!
You know there was death yeah

You know, You know.
You know, You know!
You know, You know,
You know, You know? Yeah!

Won't Go Quietly lyrics - Company of Thieves

Said it all along, we'll be dead and gone
It's closer than you read, so batter up, kid-
Everything, everything is caving in

Oh oh oh oh ahh ha
Oh oh oh oh ahh ha
Forced to, you could shake it
Or you could write it off!

Said it all along, we'll be dead and gone
It's closer than you read, so batter up, kid-
Everyone, everyone is closing in

Oh oh oh oh ahh ha
Oh oh oh oh ahh ha
Forced to, you could shake it
Or you could write it off!

I will not go quietly! I will not be silenced!
I will not go quiet! I will not stay silent!

I will not! I won't go quiet!
Oh ooh oh
Oh tell me that you won't, you won't go!

After Thought lyrics - Company of Thieves

Take all of my worry
And take back all of my words
Before I never learn
Before I never learn

That I am not my problems,
I am not my money's worth,
Where I went to school,
Order of my birth

And I am not the answer,
I am not the aftermath,
Or picture of the past

I didn't know, know, know
I didn't know, know, know
I didn't know

Someday on a mountain
I will face all of my fears
Before I disappear

But I'll never know, know

That one night in the middle
Of my marigolden dreams
I will start to see

I didn't know, know, know
I didn't know, know, know
I didn't know, know, know
I didn't know

TAKE ME FOR ONLY A MAN!
TAKE ME FOR ONLY A MAN!
TAKE ME FOR ONLY A MAN!
TAKE ME FOR ONLY A MAN!
