HASTE THE DAY LYRICS

1. Wake Up The Sun


They came with different names
bore the mark of the old
They came with different names
bore the mark of the old
We've tried to run but it's no use
And all this time we've reached the point of desperation
In these iron walls we hide
But we leave the gates wide open

FOR NOW
We are here and we are one
and hearts are empty
FOR NOW
For the waking of the sun
Is not that easy
FOR NOW
We are here are one

I will never be the same
and I'll burn with a heart of fire
It's never gonna be the same
When I see their faces
They came with different names
and bore the mark of the old
And from their lips came the same strain
That's waking up, that's waking up the sun

FOR NOW
We are here and we are one
and hearts are empty
FOR NOW
For the waking of the sun
Is not that easy
FOR NOW
We are here are one

They came with different names,
bore the mark of the old

We are waking up the sun

FOR NOW
We are here and we are one
and hearts are empty
FOR NOW
For the waking of the sun
Is not that easy
FOR NOW
We are here and we are one

We are waking up the sun!


2. Dog Like Vultures


Who will protect you from these dog like vultures?
And I know they're small but their teeth are sharp.

We've been sent with eyes to see them and ears to hear their steps.
Our hearts that are softer than the sheep.

We've been known to calm the storm and silence the ocean
with strength to spare you from their teeth.

Our eyes are upon you
and we will protect you
and be assured that
no fang will breech
your fleece

Because we are called to lead and sent to gather.
So, bare your teeth
and sharpen your claws.

We've been sent with eyes to see them
and ears to hear their steps.
Our hearts that are softer than the sheep

We've been known to calm the storm and silence the ocean.
With strength to spare you from their teeth.

From their teeth.
And their blood will spill like water in a fountain for thieves and liars.
So bare your teeth and sharpen your claws.
Because we hold the keys

And we've been sent with
eyes to see them
and ears to hear their steps
and hearts are softer than the sheep.

We've been known to calm the storm and silence the ocean.
With strength to spare you from their teeth.
From their teeth.


3. The Quiet, Deadly Ticking


Tell me, is this what you wanted?
How was I supposed to know exactly how you were?
And how am I to act when I don't even know my worth?
The minutes turn to hours and the hours turn to days
So, tell me, is this what you wanted?
Hanging there suspended as someone pulls your strings
That night that I awoke I never even knew your name
The weeks turned into months and the months turned into years

So, tell me, is this what you wanted from me?
Or am I something else?
Is this what you wanted from me?
Or am I something else?
Who pulls your strings?

We are the sand worn down from stone
And although we're scattered
Our voices sing your death song
We are the weight of the world's sorrow
And you will witness the strength of our souls
And our voices speak of death

Still hanging there suspended as someone pulls your strings
That night that I awoke I never even knew your name
The weeks turn into months and the months turned into years

Is this what you wanted from me?
Is this what you wanted from me?
We swear that you will soon meet your end

We are the sand worn down from stone
And although we're scattered
Our voices sing your death song
We are the weight of the world's sorrow
And you will witness the strength of our souls
And our voices speak of death

So tell me is this what you wanted?


4. Travesty


You cover me!
I am spent and with death you paid my ransom
For the witness of your word
To bring them is the jackal's sin
Oh, the eyes of death are upon me
And the watchman takes his toll
If the river will run dry it will never take us home
With idle minds we grew unconscious as the hunter stalks his prey
His eyes, his eyes are locked on me

You cover the darkest part of me
With a look that's sure to set the captives free

Oh, make way for I am not the redeemer
Nor do the mountains fall in my name
But with slightest cry, my hunter
You will fail to reach your prey
Still with idle minds unconscious
As the hunter stalks his prey
His eyes, his eyes are locked on me

You cover the darkest part of me
With a look that's sure to set the captives free
With love that the blindest eyes will see
You cover the darkest part of me

As I am met with travesty
And I am broken and I am empty
And through it all I can see your face
With words unspoken I hear your voice and
I see the hand, the hand that writes it all
You've called the wind to show its worth
You've called the sun to brag about its warmth
Because you are the writer
Because you are the soul of the world

You cover the darkest part of me
With a look that's sure to set the captives free
With love that the blindest eyes will see
You cover the darkest part of me

Because you are the writer


5. Merit For Sadness


When the moon hangs rogue in the sky
I wait for you
With every step you take
I'll wait for you
I will never forget this made me feel alone
So hopelessly alone
Defeated, helpless, with nothing to call home

Open my heart to sadness
It's through the pain that I believe
(It's in the pain that I can see)
Love is alive in darkness
The waters may rise but your hand carries me

I won't let go
and I will never forget
You made me feel alive so I'll wait for you
I'll wait for you
We've opened our hearts to sadness
Because we know it wont last long
We know love will live through darkness
Through the darkness we overcome

Open my heart to sadness
It's through the pain that I believe
(It's in the pain that I can see)
Love is alive in darkness
The waters may rise but your hand carries me, I won't let go

When the moon hangs low [4x]

Open my heart to sadness
It's through the pain that I believe
(It's in the pain that I can see)
Love is alive in darkness
The waters may rise but your hand carries me

The world may deny what you choose to believe
I know you're here
So I'll hold on and wont let go
I wont let go


6. The Un-manifest


Right now, he awaits at the threshold
Don't let him in
No, don't let him in
though he is dressed like the rest of us,
He has the jackal's eyes
The jackals eyes
Oh, the immortal is coming
And with him comes the storm
Black smoke fills the air
With anger as black as the cellars of hell
He wears your name like a cloak made for kings
He wears your name like a cloak made for kings

They will come like...
Parasites swarming in
Dressed in lies of normality
To appease the death of innocence
And its growing appetite

Abandon all hope!
Abandon all hope!
Abandon all hope!

Parasites swarming in
Dressed in lies of normality
To appease the death of innocence
And its growing appetite

Parasites swarming in
Dressed in lies of normality
To appease the death of innocence
And its growing appetite


7. The Place Where Most Deny


[featuring Micah Kinard of "Oh, Sleeper"]

blot out the sun the miserable sun
I'll blacken the sky and you will see no light

Useless, it is all useless
There will be nothing
There is no one to help you out
But I hear the voice of the watchman:
Useless, it is all useless
There will be nothing
There is no one to help you out

Blot out the sun the miserable sun
I'll blacken the sky and you will see no light

You've taught us to feel worthless
But it's in the back of your mind
That we are strong enough
To make it back, to make it back in time

There is no way out
And you have nothing without me

[Micah Kinard (oh, sleeper):]
After all these years of my pleasing and reaching
How easily you can be so swayed
Oh, by that arrogant tongue that pours slow with precision
All those honey-soaked geared to sink you and keep you
Locked tight in such desperate but anxious grips
Because he fears what burns beneath your skin
And he will fear what I've written

You've taught us to feel worthless
But it's in the back of your mind
That we are strong enough
To make it back, to make it back in time
To make it back, to make it back in time

When you're breathing in, in the place where most deny
You are strong enough
(We can make it back in time)
To make it back in time
When you're breathing in
(We can make it back in time)
In the place where most deny
You are strong enough
(we can make it back in time)
To make it back in time


8. White As Snow


I've walked with the kings and I've marched to the pounding drums
Then you came [2x]

You asked me to change but like a fool I refused
And walked away
Oh, oh

It's not like you would know, would you?
You were white as snow
But still you plead, still you plead guilty

They took my crown as I hung my head and tied the noose
Around my neck
They tied me up and left me for dead
please cut, cut me loose

It's not like you would know, would you?
You were white as snow
But still you plead, still you plead guilty

It's not like you would know, would you?
You were white as snow
Still you plead, still you plead guilty

It's not like you would know, would you?
You were white as snow
You were white as snow
You were white as snow


9. Crush Resistance


Crush the resistance!

Storm the halls and all of the rooms
And break resistance
All who'll choose the narrow road
Will be the victims
Crush resistance!
Withdraw the power
Seek to bring down the leader
Devour the smallest of the pride
And wring the blood from your fur
For they are white as the morning
But they are weak from the need to forgive
Cover yourselves with the flesh of their fallen
And dress for the banquet
For they are weak and unknowing
Dress for the banquet
For the rain is falling from the

Grey sky!
Death comes in the
Black night!
We will never see the
Sun light!
In the shadow of your hate

Falling from the
Grey sky!
Death comes in the
Black night!
We will never see the
Sun light!
In the shadow of your hate
Look into the grey sky as its turning into night

Wear the stone down to sand
And weigh them down with your sorrow

Dress for the banquet
For they are weak and unknowing
Dress for the banquet
For they are weak and unknowing
And the rain is falling from the

Grey sky!
Death comes in the
Black night!
We will never see the
Sun light!
In the shadow of your hate

Falling from the
Grey sky!
Death comes in the
Black night!
We will never see the
Sun light!
In the shadow of your hate
Look into the grey sky as its turning into night

As I send you out into the shadow
Lurk the woods and every dark place


10. Walk With A Crooked Spine


He'll bury us all in misery!

Where are you now?
When the world is crashing
And all the creatures are calling
Where are you now?
In the rhythm of the subtle sound
Of them whispering

You are wounded now, I know
You are wounded now
And the world is crashing down, I know
It's crashing down

He'll bury us all in misery
Buried underneath this mountain of control
But I am the white light
In the potters eyes
as you come wandering home

Where are you now?
In this time
I've wandered to find the way out
But I am the spawn
Of the wolf and the jackal
And there is no hope for me
There is no hope for me

Which is why instead of walking upright
You walk with a crooked spine

He'll bury us all in misery!
Misery!

Misery buried underneath this mountain of control
But I am the white light
In the potters eyes
as you come wandering home

I am the spawn of the wolf and the jackal
So hear the sound within me
I am the spawn of the wolf and the jackal
So hear the sound within me


11. My Name Is Darkness


With grace, we've marched
To the ends of the earth
To search for the hand
And When all hope is lost
It will be found
Where heavens and earth collide

And darkness will show his weary head to the light
And the rich will trade their treasures for life
For something sweeter than honey
Where the earth and the heavens collide

My name is darkness
And I have uncloaked my face to the light
My name is darkness
And I have uncloaked my face


12. Meet Me Half Way


[Special-edition bonus track]
[BLACK EYED PEAS cover]

I can't go any further then this
I want you so badly, it's my biggest wish

And all those things we use to use to use to do
Hey girl, what's up, it use to be just me and you

Let's walk the bridge, to the other side
Just you and I (just you and I)

For for you and I, for for you and I, for you and I

I want you so bad it's my only wish
I can't go any further then this
I want you so bad it's my only wish


13. Blue 42 (Live In Auckland, New Zealand)


[Special-edition bonus track]

Burning bridges burning bridges
Shut myself off from the world
Burning bridges burning bridges
Shut myself off from life

As the ashes fall as the ashes fall
Through the fire through the flame
As the ashes fall as the ashes fall
Through the fire through the flame

Life purified again
I won't look back
To the chains that bound me
I won't look back
To the chains that bound me

And I will lay to rest my ghosts
And cover my footsteps
And I will stand up straight and walk away
Leaving them far behind

Wont look back, chains that bound me!


14. Pressure The Hinges (Live In Capetown, South Africa)


[Special-edition bonus track]

And now I'm running out of reasons.
And I spoke too soon.
The clock weighs on the counter top.
Everything is sinking through the floor.
You hold the door and I'll pressure the hinges.
Would you trust these locks?
And sleep to hide your secrets?
Dodging bullets is easier when you don't believe in fate.
And I swear, I swear we won't make it obvious when we turn around again.
What are you afraid of?
Are you scared you're not alone?
You keep running out.
Turn around again.
You aspire to be helpless, hopeless.
Burning all your dreams I'm running low on secrets that will quench your thirsty ears.
And I'm counting the seconds between distraction and the moment.
Fifteen seconds till melt down.
Fifteen seconds till the roof will hit the floor.
I see the light in the stairway and the floor is lettered with maps and hotel keys.
So we turn around again.
Wear the robe of pig skin and he'll wear the crown.
He'll run and he'll run and he'll run till you stop him.
I see your eyes changing and your passions gone again.
You're still running out.
We desire to be comfort in this broken world you're in.
Fifteen seconds till...
Fifteen seconds till...
