Track Name: Seven Stars Panda
G-C
When we were young
Happiness hung from the corners
When we were young
Happiness swung from the trees
Am-G, Am-C-D
And we were not dumb, we were not anything
Shouting to the heavens til our vocal chords were sore
But hearing nothing

Our will was strong
But our faith in the system, it waivered
And when the catechism came, we sold it away for a song
And we were not wrong, we were just practicing
Trying to prolong the taste of something we could only know as laughter

[CHORUS]
G
Now all the kids are writing plays
All the kids are getting married
All the kids settling down
All the kids are having babies

Em-D-G, Em-D-C, Em-D-G, Em-D-Am-C
But we are adults, and we drink!
Toasting the bogs where we sink
Toasting our last cigarettes
Toasting ourselves and our littanany of regrets

G, Em-Am-C-D-G
And Seven Stars Panda will never forget you!
And Seven stars panda will never once let you forget

Yet to belong
To a dubious wisdom we'd pander
And raise one more glass to the transient nature of love
Am-G, Am-C-D
But our ways they are are not strange, they are not anything
Sewing cryptic seeds of our more criminal rewards
But reaping nothing
Track Name: Seven Hills
Modest homes and modest lives
Simple pleasures, silent cries
We worked the land, and told each other stories of our home

And fog clung to our eyes
Unsure of when it had arrived
Discontentment leeching slow into the soil


Em G
And the waves lap at our feet
D* C G
Like the tongues of lonely wolves across their teeth
F C
Hungry for our souls

And the sin called soft and sweet
Shambling unseeing towards defeat
Trembling and cold

G F C F G
Out beyond the reach of heaven, in search of glory

D* C G
And so we left that lonely shore
D* C G
Breathless, timid and unsure
Am C G F
Our course uncharted, searching for a place we could call home
C

But our luck was never kind
And it weighed heavy on our minds
That the fog had loosed it's hold upon the shore and followed close behind

And the fog that clung upon beaches loosed its hold and followed us behind

[CHORUS]

G F C F G
Out beyond the reach of heaven, in search of glory
G F C F G
Marching out of darkness, and in to purgatory

F Am G

F Am G

G G/F# G/E C C C C/B

And we knelt and drank our fill
Seven scars on seven hills

Drinking deep of poisoned wells
Seven stars for seven hells
