"Safe House" as written by Brian Mcternan, James Buddy Nielsen, Daniel Gerard Trapp, Garrett Michael Zablocki and Jason Black....
I'm climbing out of the hole that I've been digging
Throwing out all the blueprints I had drawn up for the safe house
I stashed away enough food for forty days
Gallons of water, first aid and propane and some wine to entertain
I'm always planing for the worst
I signed my will right after birth, I've got my eulogy rehearsed

I fall to pieces and I get weak in the knees when I think about eternity
Have I been lead astray feeling like fate forget me
He had the right name but the wrong street

I'm pulling nails out from the coffin, I'm gasping for air
My eyes full just like the moon I've got a silver bullet stare
The Holy Grail that I once thought was fiction
But the fact is that it's not in communion with my thoughts
The vultures circle over head hanging
Like halos for the dead but I'm not suited for one yet

I fall to pieces and I get weak in the knees when I think about eternity
Have I lead astray feeling like fate forget me
He had the right name but the wrong street
I'm a number in a lottery
Life's a boardwalk game God rigged to cheat

As the snow falls all along the peaks, my mind's an avalanche
I'm digging through to reach, all the things I shove down too deep
My mind's an avalanche, I'm digging through to reach
I could run but with it's speed I'm bound to buried here underneath
A tidal wave triggered to teach that life on an island isn't what it seems
I'm cutting off my toes just so I can spite my feet

I fall to pieces and I get weak in the knees when I think about eternity
Have I lead astray feeling like fate forget me
He had the right name but the wrong street
I'm a number in a lottery
Life's a boardwalk game God rigged to cheat

    General CommentThese lyrics have a lot of mistakes. I looked at the CD booklet and it as a few mistakes as well.
    I'm sure that these are the correct lyrics.

    I'm climbing out of the hole that I've been digging
    Throwing out all the blueprintsI had drawn up for the safe house
    I stashed away enough food for forty days
    gallons of water, first aid and propane and some wine to entertain

    I'm always planning for the worst
    I signed my will right after birth, I've got my eulogy rehearsed

    I fall to pieces and I get weak in the knees when I think about eternity
    Have I lead astray feeling like fate forgot me
    He had the right name but the wrong street

    I'm pulling nails out from the coffin, I'm gasping for air
    My eyes are full just like the moon, I've got a silver-bullet stare
    The Holy Grail that I once thought was fiction
    but the fact is that it's not in communion with my thoughts
    The vultures circle over head hanging
    like halos for the dead but I'm not suited for one yet

    I fall to pieces and I get weak in the knees when I think about eternity
    Have I been lead astray feeling fate forgot me
    He had the right name but the wrong street
    I'm a number in a lottery
    Life's a boardwalk game God rigged to cheat

    As the snow falls all along the peaks my mind's an avalanche
    I'm digging through to reach all the things I tried to shove down deep
    My mind's an avalanche I'm digging through to reach

    If I could run but with it's speed I'm bound to be buried here underneath
    A tidal wave triggered to teach that life on an island isn't what it seems
    I'm cutting off my toes just so I can spite my feet

    I fall to pieces and I get weak in the knees when I think about eternity
    Have I been lead astray feeling fate forgot me
    He had the right name but the wrong street
