VERSE 1: Took a boat from the coast off of Maine No reason why and no thoughts to explain Just a box, some notes and this claim Bring us the girl, be cleansed of your blame No need to ask, no questions remained I took the job just to clear my bad name I took a boat from the coast of of Maine Into the sky, through the clouds and the rain CHORUS: No matter who I was, I'm who I need to be This tower's falling down, the Songbird's been set free No matter who I was, I'm where I need to be Delivered you from evil, but it turns out it was me VERSE 2: Took a chance at a clean, empty slate And found a girl who controls time and space But there was something familiar I placed Within her eyes and her younger face PRE CHORUS: Elizabeth, you've changed me Changed me, for the better BRIDGE: I'm on a mission to relinquish a debt I've got these memories I try to forget A bloody nose and these clouds in my head I'll drink these vigours cause they're my best defense I'm on a mission to relinquish a debt I've got these memories I try to forget A bloody nose and these clouds in my head Rescue the girl, and wipe out the debt Colombia, it's where I need to be Colombia, it's where I need to be CHORUS: No matter who I was, I'm who I need to be This tower's falling down, the Songbird's been set free No matter who I was, I'm where I need to be Delivered you from evil... No matter who I was, I'm who I need to be This tower's falling down, the Songbird's been set free No matter who I was, I'm where I need to be Delivered you from evil... Delivered you from evil, which you really didn't need

Some things pull us together Some things pull us apart And sound that you're hearing is of our beating hearts VERSE 1: Save the girl, clear the debt Something I have, have to forget Every time, we get close Feel my hands shake, and bloody nose CHORUS: I won't always save you cause I don't have the heart And bravery ain't my strong suit, I'm one of several parts VERSE 2: Something strange, familiar too And it all stems, stems out from you CHORUS 2: You won't always need me cause you'll outgrow these wings You'll fly so far away from me and my deadly sins BRIDGE: Songbird carry me away Someone carry me away

Yeah, sugar c'mon, sugar c'mon VERSE 1: I snap my fingers to the beat and they dance to make their retreat To escape from the coming heat Yeah I shake these hall ways when walk Hear the voice of the splicers talk See the marks of my daughter's chalk Yeah PRE 1: I'll walk the oceans still alive I'll never falter, never die But I may never see But I may breathe again CHORUS: I don't remember who I used to be I don't remember what I used to do All I remember is protecting you And maybe that is what I'm meant to do I don't remember where I used to live I don't remember who I called a friend But maybe if I hold you close to me We can fight it out and see the end VERSE 2: I feel my lungs mechanically breathe Feel the hits as my body heaves And my will to go on may leave Yeah PRE 2: I'll drag myself 'cross broken glass To find my purpose here at last PRE 3: I'll dig myself an early grave If innocence might just be saved OUTRO: Burn! Burn their ships! Sink this city Save the sisters, oh! Sink this city Yeah! Sink this city

Someone call me by my real name I can't feel the sun, the sun, the sun Everybody runs, they run, they run What is it I've done, I've done, I've done? What have I become, become, become? VERSE 1: I am just a monster, a remnant of the man A memory that's fading, a poorly made up plan I am just the monster, what's left of what remains A guardian of Rapture, my life entwined by chains Breathe a breath of this dead end town NEW CHORUS: Drag me, from bottom of the ocean And just let me see, let me see the sun Take me from this God forsaken city Please let me out, and tell me that it's done VERSE 2: I was never ready My heart gave way to weight My hands were so unsteady They took me to the place You were so ungrateful For everything they did They strung you up, and sewed you in and left you with a kid BRIDGE: I'm dead with a brain, with a brain I live in a grave, in this grave 2ND CHORUS: Drag me, from bottom of the ocean And just let me see, let me see the stars Take me from this God forsaken city Please just let me out, let me breath at last

VERSE: Welcome to Rapture, where artists can thrive, Where science trumps morals, where we came to die Welcome to Rapture, oh Ryan he lied His "free" market crumbled, our brains all got fried PRE CHORUS: Nothing has changed from the surface Nothing has changed from the surface The rich just get richer the poor just get poorer Did you not think we would notice? VERSE 2: Welcome to Rapture, the jewel of the sea Where plasmids and ADAM control all with Eve PRE CHORUS 2: Bringing things in from the surface Bringing things in from the surface Fontaine and his men, they smuggle them in Creating a world like a circus CHORUS: Ring around a Rosie, a plasmid for a trophy A pistol, a pistol, we all fall down Ring around a Rosie, a place where no one knows me So blissful, so blissful, we all will drown Excuse the sour grapes, I'm just drinking the house wine At a masquerade ball, like it's 1959! BRIDGE: Little sisters, walking the streets Shadowed by splicers, who live in their need Enter Big Daddy, designed to protect her Conditioned by science, forget who they once were

Booker Blues 04:21
It's been a long hard road, that I'm travelling on. And it's a long hard road, til I'm dead and gone. Don't cry to your sister. Your little sister. Gotta find someone. It's been a long dark road, that I'm stumbling down And it's this long dark road, that lead me into town Brothers and sisters, I got holy blisters On my soul down now It's been a long, long road, that I've walked dead down My debts weighing my load, my smile replaced with a frown I lost someone precious, somebody precious For this sinner's crown CHORUS: I give up, I give up, I gave up and so I sold you out I look up, I look up, I looked up and I had my doubts I saw no other way, I saw no other way So I sold you out There was no other way, I saw no other way So I sold you out
