Track Name: Bad Man
I am not a bad man
Wouldn’t you love to learn how to love me?
You are what I dream of
Angelic sweetness, faith and mercy

I am not a bad man
Compared to injustice you survived
I tell you you’re my equal
rare and unearthly, pure light

I know they taught you to be a good woman
To stomach the worst of men like me
Tend to my wounds as if you could heal them
Let me prey on your sympathy

I am not a bad man
You’ve always admired an anti-hero
Brooding and misunderstood because
His mind is superior

Ignore the screaming — my wife in in the attic
I just pretend she does not exist
And I believe you are not like the others
You will always be innocent
When the house burns down and she’s dead you’ll come back
You’ll love me despite my deformity
And maybe once I’m blind I’ll see how I’ve erred and
I will learn some humility

I am not a bad man
(As I prey on)
Wouldn’t you love to learn how to love me?
(The saint in you)
You are what I dream of
(I swear it will)
Angelic sweetness, faith and mercy
(fulfill you)

I am not a bad man
Wouldn’t you love to learn how to love me?
I am not a bad man
If only someone would learn how to love me
Track Name: Before the Flood
This city sucks the blood of the young
To feed the rich and greedy
Then the young learn to look down in disgust
At the bodies of the needy

I did not ask to be born a citizen of your land
I did not ask to need to be fed by your charitable hand

One last rain before the flood
(rising up all around us)
One last flood before the water pulls us all under
And there’s no Atlantis to escape to
No future to create, now

But now we see your wars
For what they are

I am not a lone oracle
We all know the ship’s going down
But for all I know you’ve got a lifeboat
It’s just your poor soldiers who’ll drown

I did not ask to fight for the rights of the rulers of this land
I did not ask to die by your enemy’s hand

One last rain before the flood
(rising up all around us)
One last flood before the oceans
Pull us all under
And if there is a life boat on board
You’d better believe we will take it

We will seize everything
As you look on in the wake
Your money won’t buy back lives
From the ones you tried to take

One last rain before the flood
(rising up all around us)
One last flood before the water
Pulls us all under
And if there’s a life boat on board
You’d better believe we will take it

We will seize everything
As you look on in the wake
Your money won’t buy the lives
From the spirits you tried to break
