Track Name: Dead Like You
Gasoline dreams of water flowing
Moisture on the glass, infatuation
Golden ale to wash away
Aching ideas coming in day to day

I don't want a voice no more
I don't want to scream no more

I've been dead like you
Nothing to myself
Sickness breeding misery
Looking for escape

Broadcast, we are the receivers
Injecting stories from true deceivers
Sick, sick, this is what we want
To feed from depths while getting kicked from the top

I don't want to breathe anymore

I've been dead like you
Nothing to myself
A sickness breeding misery
Looking for escape
Track Name: Mankind
I’m gonna hunt you down
I’m gonna make sure that you never were
I’m gonna make you hurt so bad something I can assure
I will cut your fucking throat
I will cauterize your eyes
I will make you feel the pain
In amounts you won’t realize

You don’t want to stay here
I don’t want to stay here
I don’t want a distraction that will haunt me for a life-time
So much for regress
So much for progress
Don’t ever wanna sustain a hatred for mankind!

I’ve seen the crippled hands
I’ve seen the broken bones you rectified
I know the falling shadows swarm with folks of your own kind
That will cut my fucking throat and will feel me from inside
They will make me feel the pain, in amounts I won’t realize

You don’t want to stay here
I don’t want to stay here
I don’t want a distraction that will haunt me for a life-time
So much for regress
A Self-righteous progress
Don’t ever wanna sustain a hatred for mankind!
Track Name: She's Got Nothin'
She's got nothing
On me and I'll soon be forgetting about it
How close we come
To tying the noose then our life is all done
Now we see each other
In plain sight, but I've been blind forever
So off with your attack
Quick place your pawns all across the map

Not that it's anything to say
But please stay away from this
You don't want it
I gave you the count of three
Enough to understand me
And now it's time to go

Love is discomfort
Settling for second instead of first
While time will pass through my mind
Night is so haunting
Filled with foul memory of the whole thing
And can you wait for me
Or rid yourself and set me free

Not that it's anything to say
But please stay away from this
You don't want it
I gave you the count of three
Enough to understand me
And now it's time to go
Track Name: Hurt
I’ve seen you look at her and stare with exotic eyes
I know she knows but she pretends to read hungry inside
Why do these things we fear don’t make sense and cause us to hurt
Hurt
It’s always something that breaks us and cause us to hurt
Hurt
Just give me something, anything but this

Some people never change, some people don’t change at all
The war won and you feel dizzy and ready to fall

Why do these things we fear don’t make sense and cause us to hurt
Hurt
It’s always something that breaks us and cause us to hurt
Hurt
Just give me something, anything but this

Cause to hurt
Track Name: Get A Gun!
They're coming in waves for you
Eroding earth under our heals
Persisting to control
Until we have no ground to stand
The shot up children hit the streets
Rallying concerns and argument
The static over shadows
Overcomes the origin of it all
And it doesn't matter

One more reason to get yourself a gun
They tried and failed, seen the cause
So get yourself a gun

The hands of modern gods
Laid out what will be and what is
They need not to abide
For gods cannot commit such crimes
We're spinning now
Spinning in emotion
We could rewrite it all
For this one night
And we don't see
Like a child of a bitch of a dog
We submit

One more reason to get yourself a gun
They tried and failed, seen the cause
So get yourself a gun
Track Name: Better Days
Don't want to stand on my laurels anymore
But I can't stand on my own two feet
It's like a huge weight on my shoulder
Crushing down on you and me

I need better days
This isn't working
I need better days
I need more clarity

If I wake early in the morning
Most likely fall back asleep
There's nothing quite like my lack of production
Just stare at a wall all day
Track Name: Settle Down
I’ve been wondering what you
Have been searching for ever since we first met
Its like you, just can’t settle down
Settle down enough to keep all of your friends

Sad and confused are we
To undermine to goals that dictated our lives
Your minds a question
Seeking answers, proving people wrong, embarrassing best friends,
Never resolving problems

I’ve done things I can’t take back
Made mistakes, I’ve told some lies and I’ve been a dick

How bout you?
Ignoring what you built
Cast aside the rules you wrote and forced down our throats

Sad and confused are we
To realize how far we’ve come and how much we’ve grown
Your minds a question
Seeking answers, proving people wrong, embarrassing best friends,
Never resolving problems

If I could take it back (seeking answers)
If I could do it again (proving people wrong)
I think I’d waste your time (embarrassing best friends)
Just like you wasted mine (never resolving problems)
I wouldn’t be so nice (seeking answers)
I wouldn’t show I cared (proving people wrong)
I wouldn’t be so kind (embarrassing best friends)
You wouldn’t have entered my mind (never resolving problems)
Track Name: By Pattern
Sign out your heart with your hands
Share your concerns along with demands
At the end it's all a failed faulty plan

Lanterns aligned, folded flags
Freedom placed by dirty hands
In the end you say, "Take all you can"
Well, can you explain?

Been scheming by pattern, no less
While i play the fool in the mess

Pull to show worth and cracked at grace
Trust and control were all misplaced
Hours spent building on a shattered base

Lanterns aligned, folded flags
Freedom placed by dirty hands
In the end you say, "Take all you can"
Well, can you explain?

Been scheming by pattern, no less
While i play the fool in the mess
Track Name: Sharia's Fist
She lost her innocence at age 15 to a man who paid money, money!
(She didn’t break the law, no person raised an eye)
A Norman occurrence her parents didn’t think twice
They got her dowry in return they got her rights, rights!
(Scared and confused, she closed her eyes tight)

Bright green pastures and memories of friends
She thought it was in her head, reality broke her heart
(She couldn’t face the truth, she didn’t want to)
How in the hell could this be all there is?
Shattered and confused quickly turned to rage
(She thought to fight back, she tried to fight back)

Half a decade defected all her dreams
Her sprit is broken there’s no where left to go, go
(She had to let go, it hurt to hold on)
She still can’t believe that this is the way it is
She’s fragile and broken she cries all the time, time
(She got down on her knees, she closed her eyes tight)

Bright green pastures and memories of friends
She thought it was in her head, reality broke her heart

(She couldn’t bare the thought, another hopeless life)
How in the hell could this be all there is?
Shattered and confused quickly turned to rage
(The cycle repeats, nothing is done)

And she knows she can’t leave
And if she does it could mean her end
In a land the constitutes the trade of a human girl
Supported by holy books
Dragged on for thousands of years
What is she to do?
Could someone please tell her?
Track Name: November's The Reason
Come sweet sorrow, let the days pass by
Thoughts sink while body passes through time
Waters around grow still and cold
Colors once bright begin to crush and fold

I can't find the reason
But I try
November bring the season
When I die

Mirrors reveal a bitter sweet taste
The truth about my time being a waste
My skin constricts and crushes
Leaving one only option

I can't find the reason
But I try
November bring the season
When I die
Track Name: Powerful On Paper
You're so righteous, yes, you pray for them everyday
Even though you condemn what they do
Whatever helps you sleep

How's your son, are you still writing him?
You're such a fucking saint with your thought provoking slogan
Preaching lies and furthering hate in your self defense

Our indifference and guilt accepting
Keep their weapons loaded and armed
We silently break our own hearts
Avoiding any kind of blame

You put your faith in the man with the gun
Who will be the hero when the war is won.

Our indifference and guilt accepting
Keep their weapons loaded and armed
We silently break our own hearts
Avoiding any kind of blame

Don't support their lies and greed
Don't support their death machine
Track Name: Second Hand
Some people never change and they never will
And then they come around and ask me if you still
Only hope to never be like you
Then they come around and ask me
What this war is, is worth fight for?

Can’t you see that were running out of, running out of, time
Can’t you see that were running out of, running out of, time

Some people pray for change I think you know which ones
The ones who pick up trash and play catch with their sons
My only wish is for people to learn from this
Then they come around and ask me
What this war is, is worth fight for?

Can’t you see that were running out of, running out of, time
Can’t you see that were running out of, running out of, time
Can’t you see that were running out of time
Can’t you see that were running out, running, running, running out
…of time
Track Name: Breathing Room
It's pretty clear that you wanna go
Getting distressed, give your routine a rest

You're saying you didn't want to be apart ever
I didn't ever want to be a part of you

Pattern forming, life conforming
Stuck together in a house of cards

You're saying you didn't want to be apart ever
I didn't ever want to be a part of you
