I really really wish they were. It would make it a lot easier to sing confidently knowing you're singing the right lyrics!
By the way, they also don't have the lyrics to Chinese Sleep Chant, the other hidden song. As far as I can tell, all the lyrics online are very inaccurate for this song. I think I've come very close to figuring out the correct lyrics.

Haha, isn't that the fun of it?
I remember discussing the lyrics of Birds with Leo.
The things we heard weren't always the same.
And, now that I've heard Birds live it seems that Chris is singing something different as well. [emoji1]

i still love this song
Yep, I introduced Army of One to my friend the other day. He didn't say whether he liked it or not but when XMTS started he says, "Ooh, what's this?" I was pleasantly surprised :nice:

It's still a mystery for me how's the end like in this song. Because I can hear Jonny has a solo in it,
but at the same time the sound has been lower down. And afterwards (near the end), there's something more. Not that it is super exciting but I am quite curious how they exactly do end the song.

I've wondered the same, and it makes me sad that it's only at the end where the guitar starts getting louder. A live version is in order!

But there's also muted guitar sound in the middle of the song.

I know:)
You mean that sort of pattern like ''dudududuDU du dudududuDU'', right? If you know what I mean.

Ok, so in my quest for the official lyrics, here's what Amazon Music tells me the lyrics are. (I have to type this out because it won't let me copy.) The significant discrepancies are in bold.

(So I reach for it)

Stare into darkness, staring at doom
My heart go boom, bo-boom boom
Stare into darkness, admit defeat
Coming home and I'm finding no peace

And I know and I know and I know
I know I'm unlocked
And I know and I know and I know
I know what you've got

I put my hands up to the sky, I feel alive
Got a rocketship that I want to ride
Put my hands up to the sky, it's all right
Wherever you are, I'll find that treasure

(So I reach for it)
Wherever you are, I'll find that treasure
(So I reach for it)

Stare into darkness, staring at doom
You make my heart go boom, bo-boom boom
Superhero, a masterpiece
Been innocent but a sinner in me

And I know and I know and I know
I know I'm in love
And I know and I know and I know
I know when I'm lost

I just put my hands up to the sky, I feel alive
Got a rocketship that I want to ride
Put my hands up to the sky, feeling insight
Wherever you are, I'll find that treasure

Put my hands up to the sky, feelin' alive
I got a rocket, eyes on the prize
Put my hands up to the sky, I'm gonna find
Wherever you are, I'll find that treasure

So I reach for it
Wherever you are, I'll find that treasure
So I reach for it, yeah, yeah
Wherever you are, I'll find that treasure

(So I reach for it)
And I know and I know, and I know
Know what I got (so I reach for it)
X marks the spot

So I put my hands up to the sky, I feel alive
Got a rocketship that I want to ride
Put my hands up to the sky, feeling insight
Wherever you are, I'll find that treasure
Put my hands up to the sky, feelin' alive
I got a locket,
eyes on the prize
Put my hands up to the sky, I'm gonna find
Wherever you are, I'll find that treasure
Yeah, yeah, wherever you are
