Track Name: Sean Kammer & David Ullman - The Furious Light (Awkward Silence Remix)
I’m standing on the brink
I’m drowning in the drink
I’m here to dance and sing
I’m here to tear down everything

I’m here to heed the call
To leave my writing up on the wall
I've lost my pride and I’ve come to fall
At the feet of rock and roll

It’s the voice calling from within
Like claws underneath the skin
Like the pain of a secret sin
Telling me, “You’ve got only your life to give”

So let’s hold a tavern wake
Raise your glass now, for goodness sake
Here’s to the story, always the same
Here’s to the song that we all sing

Here’s to the saints in the midnight choir
To the cowards and the liars
We’re all drawn to the dark beyond the fire

Wanna rebel against everything
But the truth is, I’m afraid.
There’ll be blood, and there’ll be flames
Please, lord, give me the strength

It doesn’t matter what I believe
The hound of heaven is hunting me
I guess I’m The Saint of Blasphemy
And this is my Gethsemane

I‘ll burn down hell to make it happen
Sort the ruins out in song
Beat back the long darkness before it falls

There ain’t no use turning back
So tear the sails down from the mast
Rip the future from the past
Let the first become the last

While every night and every morn
More to misery are born
Every morning and every night
We’re dancing in the furious light
Track Name: Brian & David Ullman - How The Story Ends (Red Eye Remix)
Pour yourself a drink
As you promise everything
Yeah, you build me up
But leave an empty cup

Everyone is warning me
Telling me what to believe
Still I want so desperately
To hear what you see in me

(Chorus):
You think you know best
But you don’t know the half of it
This is how the story ends

Tell me what did you do?
You lack the follow-through
Why did I believe in you?
I was just a fucking fool?

(Chorus)

Full of all the answers
But do you ever question
Your own place
In this equation

Do you ever wonder
If you might be
Part of the problems
That you misperceive

You let me down
(You could do so much for me, if you just would)

Change your name again
I thought I found a friend
Always so quick to defend
I guess this how the story ends

(Chorus)
Track Name: Brian & David Ullman - French New Year (Hyper Mix)
It’s time to cast the stone
To ring the martyrs’ bell
To take the long way home
Be it to heaven or to hell

It’s time to lift the veil
Time to break the vow
This time we will not fail
This time, we scorch the ground

(Chorus):
We will burn our cars on the French New Year
Set fire to our pasts and all our fears
All we’ve got is blood and time; this all disappears
But I’ll be by your side when the smoke has cleared

This life, it comes at a cost
With enough blame to go around
But we ain’t come to carry the cross
We’ve come to cut it down

(Chorus)

And we will not accept defeat
So let the walls fall down on me
Because as long as I’ve breath to breathe
You’ll hear me singing

(Chorus x2)
Track Name: Brian & David Ullman - The Furious Light (Fist of Fury)
I’m standing on the brink
I’m drowning in the drink
I’m here to dance and sing
I’m here to tear down everything

I’m here to heed the call
To leave my writing up on the wall
I've lost my pride and I’ve come to fall
At the feet of rock and roll

It’s the voice calling from within
Like claws underneath the skin
Like the pain of a secret sin
Telling me, “You’ve got only your life to give”

So let’s hold a tavern wake
Raise your glass now, for goodness sake
Here’s to the story, always the same
Here’s to the song that we all sing

Here’s to the saints in the midnight choir
To the cowards and the liars
We’re all drawn to the dark beyond the fire

Wanna rebel against everything
But the truth is, I’m afraid.
There’ll be blood, and there’ll be flames
Please, lord, give me the strength

It doesn’t matter what I believe
The hound of heaven is hunting me
I guess I’m The Saint of Blasphemy
And this is my Gethsemane

I‘ll burn down hell to make it happen
Sort the ruins out in song
Beat back the long darkness before it falls

There ain’t no use turning back
So tear the sails down from the mast
Rip the future from the past
Let the first become the last

While every night and every morn
More to misery are born
Every morning and every night
We’re dancing in the furious light
Track Name: Brian & David Ullman - Graveyard (Digging Deeper)
“It takes a graveyard to raise a child,” said the man with a crooked smile.
It takes a graveyard to raise a child. So rest your bones here, and stay a while
(Stay a while)

Dusk fell early in the afternoon
I guess the gloaming gave way too soon
Now in the lonely light of moon
The nightingale sings siren’s tune
(A siren’s tune)

The steely sun is now fast asleep
Now the night can bare its full-moon teeth
We’re breeding monsters in our dreams
Praying to god our souls to keep
(Our souls will keep)

“It takes a graveyard to raise a child,” said the man with a crooked smile.
It takes a graveyard to raise a child. So rest your bones here, and stay a while
(Stay a while)

Tell St. peter for ring his bell
Because there’s no more room in hell
Throw the ghoul-gates open wide
Amongst the bones, all you’ve got is time

No dirty secrets to live down
In the graveyard don’t make a sound
You once were lost, but now you’re found
In a hole six feet underground
(Now you’re found)

Well beyond the walls of fate
Two shadows lengthen across the gray
One to curse, and one to pray
One to leave, and one to stay
(Do you wanna stay?)
Track Name: Brian & David Ullman - Almost There (The End)
Feel like I’m almost there
Feel like I’m almost there
Suddenly I just don’t
Suddenly I just don’t

Feel like I’m almost there
Feel like I’m almost there
I keep screaming but you just don’t
I keep screaming but you just don’t

Feel like I’m almost there
Feel like I’m almost there
Suddenly I just don’t
Suddenly I just don’t care
Track Name: The Furious Light (Gethsemane Mix)
I’m standing on the brink
I’m drowning in the drink
I’m here to dance and sing
I’m here to tear down everything

At the feet of rock and roll

It’s the voice calling from within
Like claws underneath the skin
Like the pain of a secret sin
Telling me, “You’ve got only your life to give”

So let’s hold a tavern wake
Raise your glass now, for goodness sake
