Track Name: Short Line
I'm on a short line
Don't have much
Have much time
I'm on this fine line
Not much left
In my mind

I don't want to go that way
because I don't know
What's on the other side
I don't want to leave now
I don't want to be now
Outside of this
Outside of this life

I'm on a short line
Don't have much
Have much time
I'm on this fine line
Not much left
In my mind
Track Name: 1910
I keep having dreams
That the world is going to end
A big ball of fire
and the crust caving in
I tried to call you
but the phone line is jammed
And all of the lights just go out again

I wonder if people will actually scream
The way that I hear them in my dreams
Everyone around me seems so scared
I just breath and take in the air

And you could have told me back in 1910
I'd believe you now I'd believe you then
You could have told me that the world was going to end
I believe you now I'd believe you then

Empty churches with their seats now full
Their cries and their screams
God can't control
They're worried 'bout heaven
They're worried 'bout hell
No matter how we live we get shaken around

And why does it matter?
Those sheeps and those goats
I live my life shining the best way that I know

And you could have told me back in 1910
I'd believe you now I'd believe you then
You could have told me that the world was going to end
I believe you now I'd believe you then
