Thrice Digging My Own Grave

It’s not what you think

Just one more little bet

Just another cigarette

Just one more drink

So lend me just a little more

You know cancer can’t catch me

Let’s have another drink or three

Don’t be a bore

But oh, don’t I know

I’m just digging my own grave

Someone else please save myself from me

And oh, lord I know

I’m just digging my own grave

Can someone save myself from me?

I look, I don’t touch

It’s really no big deal

I’ll quit it when I feel I’ve seen enough

Oh, don’t call it an affair

It’s just a little fling

She doesn’t mean a thing to me, I swear

But oh, don’t I know

I’m just digging my own grave

Someone else please save myself from me

And oh, lord I know

I’m just digging my own grave

Someone save myself from me

Thrice Blinded

I was always one of the righteous

Never lived outside of the lines

Kept a close watch on the white wash

Disguising the dead bones inside

I was always one the good ones

Keeping tabs on everyone else

Sure that I was

One of the chosen

But I was a child of hell

But you buried me in the bright light

Yeah, you held my eyes to the sun till I could see that,

That I was worse than I ever feared I could be

But somehow, I was loved more than I ever dared to believe

Because of you

I was always one of the blameless

Or at least that’s what I believed

I never thought I could have been blinded

Until I could no longer see

But you buried me in the bright light

Yeah, you held my eyes to the sun till I could see,

That I was worse than I ever feared I could be

But somehow, I was loved more than I ever dared to believe

Because of you

Thrice Eclipse

call everyone to arms

we’ll fill the heavens

with the poisoned dreams of man

call everyone to arms

we forged these weapons

with the strength of our own hands

we shot the sun from the sky

apollo dead at our feet

we wander lost in the rye

we gather round in the street

for centuries we watched the sky

and burned to bridge the great divide

call everyone to arms

we’ll fill the heavens

with the poisoned dreams of man

call everyone to arms

we built these weapons

with our pride and with the strength of our own hands

eclipse the body with stones

and lay him down with the rest

i smile when i am alone

and shed a tear for the press

for centuries we watched the sky

and burned to bridge the great divide

cause we dug the body up

we drank his golden blood

and light shone from our eyes

but it was not enough

’cause we still dream of deicide

for centuries we watched the sky

we burned to bridge the great divide

but now we burn with power and pride

Thrice A Song For Milly Michaelson

Well you know I hardly speak

When I do, it’s just for you

I haven’t said a word in weeks

Cause they’ve been keepin’ me from you

There’s a way where there’s a will

You know I got no need for stairs

Step out on the window sill

Fall with me into the air

Here we go, hold on tight and don’t let go

I won’t ever let you fall

I love the night, flying over these city lights

But I love you most of all

And there’s something you should know

Girl you should have died that day

and you fell reaching for the rose

but baby I was there to save you

So, here we go, hold on tight and don’t let go

I won’t ever let you fall

I love the night, flying over these city lights

But I love you most of all

Here we go, hold on tight and don’t let go

I won’t ever let you fall

I love the night, flying over these city lights

But I love you most of all

Thrice Broken Lungs

Woke up to a brand new skyline

We licked our wounds and mourn the dead

Swallow the story hook and sinker

Is that what we meant when we said

That we never would forget?

Are we fools and cowards all

To let them cover up their lies?

Cause we all watched the buildings fall

Watched the scales fall from our eyes

A fire burns beneath Manhattan

Still we breathe with broken lungs

We act like none of this matters

Is that what we meant When we said

That we’d sing what must be sung?

Are we fools and cowards all

To let them cover up their lies?

Cause we all watched the buildings fall

Watched the scales fall from our eyes

We want answers

Scream from the roofs

We want justice

We want the truth

Thrice I’ve Just Seen A Face

I’ve just seen a face

I can’t forget the time or place

That we’d just met, she’s just the girl for me

And I want all the world to see we’ve met

Na na na na na na

Had it been another day

I might have looked the other way

But I had never been aware

And as it is I dream of her tonight

Na na na na na na

Falling, yes I am falling

Calling she calling me back again

I have never known

The likes of this, I’ve been alone

And I have missed things and stayed out of sight

But other girls were never quite like this

Na na na na na na

Falling, yes I am falling

Calling she calling me back again

Thrice Cold Cash And Colder Hearts

They are sick, they are poor

And they die by the thousands and we look away

They are wolves at the door

And they’re not gonna move us or get in our way

‘Cause we don’t have the time

Here at the top of the world

Feeling alright

Here at the top of the world

We hold our own by keeping our hearts cold

Different god, darker skin

They are just not a burden that we’d like to bear

They are living in “sin”

There are so many reasons for us not to care

But I’m feeling alright

Here at the top of the world

Doing just fine

Here at the top of the world

We’ve learned money matters most

So we keep our cards held close

Here at the top of the world

We hold our own by keeping our hearts cold

And we’ve learned what matters most

So we keep our hearts cold

They are no one

They are nowhere

They are not our problem

Not worth saving

Nonexistent if we keep our hearts cold

They are no one

They are nowhere

Thrice Disarmed

We were sons of insurrection, doomed to face the dark alone.

‘Till vicarious perfection, dearly won, was made our own.

So where’s your landslide, where’s your victory?

Tell me now, where’s your sting?

Unassailable you waited, the great enemy of man,

’till your awful jaws were sated, and we were ransomed from your hand.

Now that you have been disarmed,

We will cross over unharmed.

Thrice Blood Clots And Black Holes

Here’s your new drug

Shoot it in the left eye

Feel it on the right side

No it’s not love

Though it sets up shop behind your ribcage

Building blood clots and black holes

Like using an axe to pull

A sliver from your skin

And they say this is medicine

An overdose of oxygen

A severed head as sedative

To be at peace would be a sin

And surely un-american

I’m breaking

Here’s your new blood

Transfusion took us all night

Tell us that you’re all right

No it’s not love

Though feels like fire inside of your veins

Burning right beneath the wrist

Begging for a razor’s kiss

To free it from your skin

And they say this is medicine

An overdose of oxygen

A severed head as sedative

To be at peace would be a sin

And surely unamerican

I’m breaking down

Lift the veil, it’s not medicine

And my heart fails, time and time again

Thrice Hoods On Peregrine

The blue light spills like oceans

We smile and let it in

It cures us of our questions

Like hoods on peregrine

Knowledge locked in a tower

Barons will hold the key

But if knowledge is power,

Know this is tyranny

All we’re asking for is what’s ours

You think they’re selling you truth,

Truth is, they’re selling you out

The truth, they’re selling you out

The black ink fuels our notions

That all the facts are in

It cures us of our questions

Like hoods on peregrine

Knowledge locked in a tower

Barons will hold the key

But if knowledge is power,

Know this is tyranny

All we’re asking for is what’s ours

You think they’re selling you truth

But they’re just selling you

And if we keep buying in

The line between lies and truth

Will wear paper thin,

Paper thin

You think they’re selling you truth,

The truth is, they’re selling you out
