Track Name: Columbia (Where I Need To Be)
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
Track Name: One Of Several (Songbird)
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
Track Name: Sink This City
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
Track Name: Alpha Series Blues
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
Track Name: Welcome To Rapture (Nothing Has Changed From The Surface)
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
Track Name: Booker Blues
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
