Well, I didn't find the words, but you may be interested in how I tried. First I looked at The All-Music Guide and learned that "Twelve" was written by Kirk McLeod, who is a member of Seven Nations, and that it appears on the album "Seven Nations."

Then I went to CDNOW and played the sound sample from "Twelve." I couldn't make out all the words, but I heard this much: "Six minutes can't amount to a life/Who would have thought that I could survive?"

Next I tried putting various combinations of those words (allowing for the possibility that I may have misheard a word or two) into Google -- and came up with nothing. Therefore I conclude that the words probably don't exist anywhere on the Internet. If Google can't find it, probably nobody can. I guess you'll have to buy the album and transcribe it yourself, unless you can find somebody else to do it for you. Good luck.

Ten years later, Google finds about 110 copies of these lyrics on the Internet. These are copied from NPR.org. Funny thing: the lyrics appear white-on-white. I wonder why? Anyway, you can still select-all, copy, and paste. I also listened to the recording and tweaked the words a bit.


TWELVE
Words and music by Kirk McLeod c 1999 Table Songs/BMI
As sung by Seven Nations on "Another Ten Years: A Compilation of Songs 1998-2008: Disc 1" (2010)

Out from the ashes of gray desire
Out from the dream and into the fire
I said a lot; it won't mean a thing
After she's gone these words will sting
No gods could be that cruel to me

Six minutes gone and still I'm alive
Who would have thought I could survive
Pieces of eight and odd bits of string
Are all I remember when I hear her sing
No gods could be that cruel to me
No gods could be that cruel to me

And I blame the sun
And I blame the moon
And I blame myself
And I blame you

Twelve minutes gone and I'm still alive
And who would have thought that we would survive
With all lines repeating and nothing rehearsed
I feel so stupid; I feel I'm cursed
I don't want to think anymore
I don't want to think anymore
No gods could be that cruel to me
No gods could be that cruel to me
