Track Name: The Town That Dreaded Sundown
“IT WAS A DREAM THAT I SAW...THE CITY STARTED TO CRUMBLE APART COVERED BY A BIG SHADOW... AND LOTS OF PEOPLE DIED...”

I HAVE SEEN THE DARKEST OF DAYS

WE ALL KNEW THAT THIS DAY WOULD COME
WHEN THE CLOUD OF OUR IGNORANCE WOULD BLOCK OUT THE SUN
EVEN THOUGH WE SAW IT COMING WE JUST COVERED OUR EYES
WITH THE PICTURE OF A SUNRISE PAINTED WITH LIES

THE FOUNDATION STARTED TO CRACK
UNNOTICED CAUSE OUR FOCUS SO OFF TRACK
TOOK ITS HEARTBEAT FOR GRANTED AND THE DAMAGE
CHIPPED AWAY AT THESE STONES WITH WOUNDS LEFT UNBANDAGED
WE MANAGED TO COMPLETE THE TASK
OF BEING TO CAUGHT UP TO WATCH THE TIME PASS
AND NOW I MUST ASK AS THE SUNLIGHT STOPS
WHO'S GUNNA CATCH THE BOMB WHEN IT DROPS?
WHO'S GUNNA CATCH THE TRUTH WHEN IT SLIPS
BETWEEN THE CRACKS OF YOUR TEETH AND RIGHT THROUGH THOSE LIPS
THAT WE'LL USE TO WRITE SCRIPTS AND PLOT DIVINE TRAGEDIES
FLOATING IN SPACE WHILE EGOS DEFY GRAVITY
NATURALLY WE DEFY OUR REALITY
A JIGSAW PUZZLE TO SOLVE OUR FATALITIES
CAUSE OUR FORMALITIES LIKE COLORS TO THE BLIND
WON'T MEAN A GODDAMN THING WHEN WE OPEN OUR EYES

WHO'S GUNNA CATCH THE BOMB WHEN IT DROPS?
WHO'S GUNNA CATCH THE TRUTH WHEN IT SLIPS?
WHEN IT SLIPS...
WHO'S GUNNA CATCH THE BOMB WHEN IT DROPS?
WHO'S GUNNA CATCH THE TRUTH WHEN IT SLIPS?
WHEN IT SLIPS... THROUGH THOSE LIPS

AND AS THE LIGHT FADES AWAY
AND AS THE TIME FADES AWAY
AND AS THE DAY FADES AWAY
AND AS THE DAY FADES AWAY
X2

AND AS THE LIGHT FADES
YOU KNOW ITS GUNNA TAKE MORE THAN JUST A FLASHLIGHT TO NAVIGATE
OUR WAY THROUGH THE DECOMPOSING REMAINS
OF THIS CIVILIZATION BURIED IN FLAMES
WHO IS TO BLAME? CAUSE EVERYBODY'S POINTING THEIR FINGERS
WE DARE NOT SPEAK THE TRUTH BUT IN THE AIR IT LINGERS
THUS THE IGNORANCE BECOMES OUR PRIMARY FUNCTION
BECAUSE WE STILL FAIL TO SEE THE WAYS OF OUR OWN SELF DESTRUCTION
AND CORRUPTION - PLACING FAITH IN FICTIONAL GODS
TO FIX THE PROBLEMS YOU'VE CREATED BUT YOU CAN'T SEEM TO SOLVE
YOU'RE SO LOST - A COMPASS WOULD KNOW YOUR DIRECTION
EXPECTING GOD TO BE JANITOR AND CLEAN UP YOUR MESSES
AND CONFESSIONS TO A MAN SITTING INSIDE A BOX
ARE NOTHING MORE THAN A PLACEBO FOR THE DAMAGE WE CAUSE
NOW I MUST PAUSE, HAIL MARY FULL OF GRACE
HOW CAN WE LOOK INTO THE MIRROR AND KEEP A STRAIGHT FACE?
HOW CAN WE...

WHO'S GUNNA CATCH THE BOMB WHEN IT DROPS?
WHO'S GUNNA CATCH THE TRUTH WHEN IT SLIPS?
WHEN IT SLIPS...
WHO'S GUNNA CATCH THE BOMB WHEN IT DROPS?
WHO'S GUNNA CATCH THE TRUTH WHEN IT SLIPS?
WHEN IT SLIPS... THROUGH THOSE LIPS

“SO MANY PEOPLE... SO MANY PEOPLE... SO MANY WILL DIE...”

I HAVE SEEN THE DARKEST OF DAYS
BUT NOTHING DARKER THAN THEN STORM THAT'S THAT'S SLOWLY COMING OUR WAY
I HAVE SEEN THE BLACKEST OF PLAGUES
BUT NOTHING BLACKER THE BLOOD THAT'S POURING OUT OF OUR VEINS
I HAVE FELT THE MAGGOTS THAT CREPT
OUT OF THE WOUNDS WE LEFT UNTREATED TAKING OVER OUR FLESH
AND I CAN SMELL THE TRACES OF DEATH
THAT SHALL RELEASE INTO THE AIR AS WE SHARE OUR LAST BREATH

WE ALL KNEW THAT THIS DAY WOULD COME
WHEN THE CLOUD OF OUR IGNORANCE WOULD BLOCK OUT THE SUN
EVEN THOUGH WE SAW IT COMING WE JUST COVERED OUR EYES
WITH THE PICTURE OF A SUNRISE PAINTED WITH LIES
X2

(THE FOUNDATION STARTED TO CRACK...)

WHO'S GUNNA CATCH THE BOMB WHEN IT DROPS?
WHO'S GUNNA CATCH THE TRUTH WHEN IT SLIPS?
WHEN IT SLIPS...
WHO'S GUNNA CATCH THE BOMB WHEN IT DROPS?
WHO'S GUNNA CATCH THE TRUTH WHEN IT SLIPS?
WHEN IT SLIPS... THROUGH THOSE LIPS

AND AS THE LIGHT FADES AWAY
AND AS THE TIME FADES AWAY
AND AS THE DAY FADES AWAY
AND AS THE DAY FADES AWAY

I HAVE SEEN THE DARKEST OF DAYS
Track Name: My Devil Never Wore Prada
(I DON'T BELIVE IN MIRACLES - I DON'T BELIEVE IN LOVE)

GNAWING ON MY FINGERS I DETECT A TASTE
FROM WHEN I PLACED MY HANDS DEEP INSIDE YOUR TOXIC WASTE
ALL THE CHEMICALS INSIDE OF YOU WERE FILLED WITH LUST
AN ADDICTIVE FORMULA THAT HAD DISTORTED MY TRUST
I DON'T BELIEVE THAT I WAS MEANT TO BE
IN A STORY THAT WOULD EVER END HAPPILY
A SUCKER FOR ILLUSIONS AND CORNY TEXTBOOK DELUSIONS
I HAVE COME TO THE CONCLUSION THAT MY MINDS BEEN ERASED
MY BRAIN WAS REPLACED WITH A FISHBOWL AND FILLED WITH PIRANHAS
SO MY THOUGHTS COULD SWIM AROUND AND FEAST OF OF EACH OTHER
ANOTHER VICTIM TO THE SYSTEM 
OF EVERY TYPICAL BROKEN HEART SYMPTOM

IT NEVER FAILS TO IMPRESS ME YOU
HAVE DRESSED THESE WOUNDS JUST TO TEMPT ME TO
BELIEVE YOUR WORDS CAUSE IT TURNS OUT YOU
WERE NOT THE ONE THAT I THOUGHT I KNEW

YOU WERE NOT THE ONE...
YOU WERE NOT THE ONE THAT I THOUGHT I KNEW

REWIND THE FUTURE, RUN TO THE PAST
NO THANKS, I DON'T THINK I'M EVER GOING BACK
I GOT A TIME MACHINE RIGHT IN MY HAND
BUT THE COORDINATES ITS MAPPED OUT I DON'T UNDERSTAND
WHY WOULD I EVER GO BACK TO A TIME
WHERE MY DAY TO DAY ROUTINE WAS WATCHING YOU TRY
SO HARD TO DO RIGHT BY ACTIONS SO WRONG?
YOUR INTENTIONS WERE SO KIND BUT YOUR MIND WAS SO GONE
FOR TOO LONG, I WAS BITING MY TONGUE
I GUESS THAT'S WHY WHEN WE WOULD KISS I ALWAYS FELT FUCKING NUMB
DUMB GIRL, YOU WERE AS FAKE AS THEY COME
FOR YEARS I WATCHED YOU TRY TO SQUEEZE INSIDE OF EVERYONES GLOVE

IT NEVER FAILS TO IMPRESS ME HOW
YOU'VE MADE A SPORT OUT OF FALLING DOWN
YOU REACH FOR HELP BUT NONE SHALL BE FOUND
I WAVE GOODBYE BECAUSE YOU ARE NOW

JUST ANOTHER MEMORY - JUST ANOTHER PLAGUE
JUST ANOTHER STAIN ON MY CLICHE RESUME
JUST ANOTHER MEMORY - JUST ANOTHER PLAGUE
JUST ANOTHER STAIN ON MY CLICHE RESUME
AND I'LL LET THE PAPER DO THE TALKING

OH ITS KEEPS SPINNIN', THE WORLD IT KEEPS SPINNIN'
IN THE STORY OF OUR LIVES I HAVE BECOME THE VILLAIN
ALL THE PEOPLE IN YOUR VILLAGE WANNA CHOP OFF MY HEAD
BECAUSE APPARENTLY I STOLE YOUR HEART AND LEFT YOU FOR DEAD?
WHAT HEART? I TORE YOU ALL APART
AND ALL I FOUND WAS WHAT I PRETTY MUCH KNEW FROM THE START
YOUR SOUL IS ROTTEN AND YOUR BLOODS MADE OUT OF JEALOUSY
THAT FLOWS INTO YOUR VIENS TO FUEL YOUR PSYCHOPATHIC TENDENCIES
DEPENDENCIES UPON THE SPAWN YOU'VE WITHDRAWN
FROM THE WOMB OF THIS WRETCHED MESS YOU'VE PASSED ON
AND ON AND ON AS THE SCARS ON MY HANDS
SHOW THE DEPTHS THAT I SUNK JUST TO MEET YOUR DEMANDS

(OH, YOU FUCKING BITCH)

SORCERER, HOLD YOUR TONGUE
THE WORDS YOU SPEAK WARP MINDS UNTIL THEIR NUMB
I DON'T BELIVE IN MIRACLES - I DON'T BELIEVE IN LOVE
I DON'T BELIVE IN MIRACLES - I DON'T BELIEVE IN LOVE

JUST ANOTHER MEMORY - JUST ANOTHER PLAGUE
JUST ANOTHER STAIN ON MY CLICHE RESUME
JUST ANOTHER MEMORY - JUST ANOTHER PLAGUE
JUST ANOTHER STAIN ON MY CLICHE RESUME
AND I'LL LET THE PAPER DO THE TALKING

IT NEVER FAILS TO IMPRESS ME HOW
YOU'VE MADE A SPORT OUT OF FALLING DOWN
YOU REACH FOR HELP BUT NONE SHALL BE FOUND
I WAVE GOODBYE BECAUSE YOU ARE NOW
IT NEVER FAILS TO IMPRESS ME YOU
HAVE DRESSED THESE WOUNDS JUST TO TEMPT ME TO
BELIEVE YOUR WORDS CAUSE IT TURNS OUT YOU
WERE NOT THE ONE THAT I THOUGHT I KNEW

I HAVEN'T SLEPT IN A COUPLE OF DAYS
MY EYES CLOSE BUT MY MIND KNOWS, MY MIND KNOWS THAT
THE BONES INSIDE OF ME ARE ROTTING AWAY
AND MY ANATOMY WILL SOON BECOME CLAY
SO MAYBE THEN YOU CAN MOLD ME INTO TASTY LITTLE GINGERBREAD MEN
AND DECORATE ME WITH THE DRAMA THAT YOU FIND SO DELICIOUS
MARKING OFF THE SELFISH BULLSHIT THAT DEVOURS YOUR WISH LIST
TRICKY BITCH, I KNEW YOUR ACTIONS ALWAYS SEEMED SO SUSPICIOUS...

SORCERER, HOLD YOUR TONGUE
THE WORDS YOU SPEAK WARP MINDS UNTIL THEIR NUMB
I DON'T BELIVE IN MIRACLES - I DON'T BELIEVE IN LOVE
I DON'T BELIVE IN MIRACLES - I DON'T BELIEVE IN LOVE

I'VE NEVER BEEN MUCH OF A LOVER...
MAYBE BECAUSE I NEVER CARED MUCH FOR MY MOTHER
I HAVEN'T BEEN KIND TO MANY DAUGHTERS...
MAYBE BECAUSE I NEVER LEARNED IT FROM MY FATHER
I'VE NEVER KNOWN HOW TO SHOW EMOTION...
RIPPED THE HEART FROM MY CHEST AND THREW IT INTO THE OCEAN
MANY HAVE TRIED SO HARD TO GO AND FIND IT...
BUT THE SHARKS IN THESE WATERS HAVE A MIGHTY VICIOUS DIET
Track Name: The Ugly
YOU TURN COLORS LIKE A LEAF BENEATH AN AUTUMN SUN
YOU CHANGE SKINS LIKE A SERPENT WITH A DEVILED TONGUE
YOU WEAVE CHAOS LIKE A BASKET THROUGH THE WALLS OF YOUR LUNGS
AND PLEAD INNOCENCE WITH IGNORANCE TO WHAT YOU HAVE DONE...
YOUR ONLY FRIENDS ARE THE ONES IN YOUR HEAD
UNLESS YOU COUNT THE MONSTERS LIVING UNDER YOUR BED
OR THE CREATURES YOU LET SLITHER THROUGH THE BLOOD IN YOUR VEINS
A PRETTY BUTTERFLY BURNING IN FLAMES...

YOUR PROBLEMS GROW GROW GROW LIKE LEAVES ON TREES
AND NOW YOU'VE GOT ENOUGH TO FILL A WHOLE FOREST
I TRIED TO RIP THEM OUT AND PLANT FLOWERS
BUT NEEDLESS TO SAY I'M NOT MUCH OF A FLORIST
JUST LIKE THE THIRD LITTLE PIGGY
YOU'VE BUILT YOU'RE HOUSE WITH BRICKS
SO I HUFF AND PUFF AND TRY TO BLOW IT DOWN
BECAUSE YOU'LL NEVER LET ME IN

WHEN THE ONLY TIME YOU CRAWL OUT OF YOUR CAVE
IS TO SHAKE HANDS WITH THE SHOVEL SLOWLY DIGGING YOUR GRAVE
YOU CLAIM CONTROL BUT I SEE YOU'RE A SLAVE
YOU CLAIM CONTROL BUT I SEE YOU'RE A SLAVE
AND EVERY TIME I LOOK INTO YOUR FACE
I'M REMINDED OF THE BEAUTY THAT YOU LOST IN THE FLAMES
YOU CLAIM CONTROL BUT I SEE YOU'RE A SLAVE
YOU CLAIM CONTROL BUT I SEE YOU'RE A SLAVE

YOU SLEEP QUIET LIKE APOCALYPSE AWAITING ITS DOOM
YOU SPREAD THE BLOOD OF ALL THE VIRTUOUS TO COVER YOUR WOUNDS
YOU WALK THE PATH OF THOSE WHO'VE FALLEN JUST OPEN YOUR TOMB
YOU SPEAK WITH INNOCENCE AND IGNORANCE TO WHAT YOU CONSUME
YOUR ENEMIES ARE THE ONES ARE THE ONES IN YOUR HAND
THAT HAVE THE MESS YOU HAVE BECOME UNDER THEIR FUCKING COMMAND
WITH ALL THE POISON YOU GOT PUMPING THROUGH THE HALLS OF YOUR BRAIN
OUR TOWERS DROPPING FROM THE CRASH OF YOUR PLANE

AND AS IT ALL FALLS DOWN, IT ALL FALLS DOWN

YOUR PROBLEMS PILE PILE PILE LIKE LEAVES FROM DEAD TREES
AND NOW YOU'VE GOT ENOUGH TO FILL A WHOLE FOREST
I'VE TRIED TO TAKE YOU FAR AWAY FROM THE PAIN
BUT NEEDLESS TO SAY I'M NOT MUCH OF A TOURIST
JUST LIKE A THIRD WORLD WAR
YOU KEEP ALL YOUR SECRETS BEHIND CLOSED DOORS
I DON'T KNOW WHAT I SHOULD DO ANYMORE
BECAUSE I CANNOT PLAY THE GAME IF YOU REFUSE TO KEEP SCORE

WHEN THE ONLY TIME YOU CRAWL OUT OF YOUR CAVE
IS TO SHAKE HANDS WITH THE SHOVEL SLOWLY DIGGING YOUR GRAVE
YOU CLAIM CONTROL BUT I SEE YOU'RE A SLAVE
YOU CLAIM CONTROL BUT I SEE YOU'RE A SLAVE
AND EVERY FUCKING TIME I LOOK AT YOUR FACE
I'M REMINDED OF THE BEAUTY THAT YOU LOST IN THE FLAMES
YOU CLAIM CONTROL BUT I SEE YOU'RE A SLAVE
YOU CLAIM CONTROL BUT I SEE YOU'RE A SLAVE

YOU CLAIM CONTROL BUT I SEE YOU'RE A SLAVE
I SEE YOU'RE A SLAVE, YEAH...

YOU SAY “I FEEL NOTHING AND EVERYTHING ALL AT ONCE...
MY BLOOD IS BOILING, MY SKIN IS COLD...
I CAN'T FEEL MY HEART BEATING, I CAN FEEL MY HEAD EXPLODING...”
AND THAT SMILE ON YOUR FACE IS GETTING OUT OF CONTROL
THIS IS NOT WISE, NOT WISE AT ALL
HOW MUCH FURTHER CAN ONE MAN FALL?
LIKE A LINE OF DOMINOES FALLING ONE BY ONE
WE TOPPLE OVER EACH OTHER UNTIL THE DAMAGE IS DONE

YOUR PROBLEMS SPREAD SPREAD SPREAD LIKE A DISEASE
AND THEY'VE INFECTED EVERY PART OF MY BRAIN
RED ALERT, RED ALERT THE BOMB IS COMING
AND I'LL WATCH AS YOU COMBUST INTO A CLUMP OF REMAINS
SCATTERED AMONGST THESE WALLS THAT YOU'VE BUILT AROUND YOURSELF
SO WHEN YOU SCREAM NOBODY HEARS A SOUND BECAUSE
YOU'RE TOO AFRAID THAT THE WORLD WILL SEE
ALL THE HIDEOUS THINGS YOU NEED TO NOW BREATHE

WHEN THE ONLY TIME YOU CRAWL OUT OF YOUR CAVE
IS TO SHAKE HANDS WITH THE SHOVEL SLOWLY DIGGING YOUR GRAVE
YOU CLAIM CONTROL BUT I SEE YOU'RE A SLAVE
YOU CLAIM CONTROL BUT I SEE YOU'RE A SLAVE
AND EVERY TIME I LOOK INTO YOUR FACE
I'M REMINDED OF THE BEAUTY THAT YOU LOST IN THE FLAMES
YOU CLAIM CONTROL BUT I SEE YOU'RE A SLAVE
YOU CLAIM CONTROL BUT I SEE YOU'RE A SLAVE
Track Name: Wack Attack
YEAH, I THOUGHT THIS STORY WAS DONE
BUT WITH YOU A NEW CHAPTER IN MY LIFE HAD BEGUN
I KNOW YOU DIDN'T MEAN TO DO IT BUT YOU BANDAGED MY SCARS
AND RID THE AIR OF ALL THE SMOG THAT HAD BEEN BLOCKING MY STARS
AND IT WAS SO CLEAR, YOU WERE EVERYTHING I WAS MISSIN
GOT MY FEET BACK ON THE GROUND, GAVE THIS LOST SOUL A MISSION
AND EVEN THOUGH IT DIDN'T LAST I STILL APPRECIATE THE FACT
THAT EVEN THOUGH YOU'RE NOW GONE I STILL HAVE MY LIFE BACK
SO THANK YOU, FOR ALL THE FALSE HOPES
ALL THE BROKEN DREAMS AND ALL THE BAD JOKES
I DON'T KNOW WHY YOU DID WHY YOU FELT YOU HAD TO DO
BUT I KINDA UNDERSTAND CUZ I'VE BEEN IN THE SAME SHOES
SCARED OF COMMITMENT, AFRAID OF LOVE
I WORE THE SUIT OF A COWARD AND IT FIT LIKE A GLOVE
WE ALL HAVE WEAKNESS, WE ALL HAVE DOUBT
JUST WISH YOU COULD HAVE SAID GOODBYE BEFORE YOU DECIDED TO WALK OUT.

I'VE BEEN WRONG BUT I'VE NEVER BEEN AN ANIMAL
I KNOW WERE ONLY HUMAN BUT GIRL, WHY'D YOU LET THE CANNIBAL OUT?
(GIRL, WHY'D YOU LET THE CANNIBAL OUT?)
I'VE BEEN WRONG BUT I'VE NEVER BEEN AN ANIMAL
I KNOW WERE ONLY HUMAN BUT GIRL, WHY'D YOU LET THE CANNIBAL OUT?
(CHEW ME UP AND SPIT ME RIGHT BACK OUT)

YOU'RE SUCH A HYPOCRITE AND ITS LEGITIMATE 
EVERYTHING I TOUCH LIKES TO BREAK AND I'M SO SICK OF IT
I'VE BEEN A BASTARD AND OWED KARMA A DEBT
SO IT DECIDED TO COLLECT THE FIRST THING I SHOULD HAVE EXPECTED
MY PAST IS FILLED WITH THE GRAVES OF FAILED LOVE
I USED TO BURY GIRLS ALIVE, LINE EM UP ONE BY ONE
CAN'T REALLY SAY THAT I AM PROUD OF THE THINGS THAT I'VE DONE
BUT I JUST WANNA HAVE THE CHANCE TO SHED THE MAN I'VE BECOME 
I'M NOT PERFECT BUT I KNOW I'M NOT INVISIBLE
SO WHY DO YOU TREAT ME LIKE A TRANSPARENT INDIVIDUAL?
I DON'T DESERVE MUCH, BUT I DESERVE MORE THAN THIS 
I'VE SHOWN YOU NOTHING BUT THE BEST THAT I CAN POSSIBLY GIVE
SO DON'T FLATTER YOURSELF, ID RATHER SPLATTER MYSELF
OUTTA MY HEAD, BLOOD RED FROM A SHOTGUN SHELL
BEFORE I PULL A CLEMENTINE ON THIS SPOTLESS MIND
BECAUSE YOU DON'T DESERVE TO SHARE MY ETERNAL SUNSHINE

I'VE BEEN WRONG BUT I'VE NEVER BEEN AN ANIMAL
I KNOW WERE ONLY HUMAN BUT GIRL, WHY'D YOU LET THE CANNIBAL OUT?
(GIRL, WHY'D YOU LET THE CANNIBAL OUT?)
I'VE BEEN WRONG BUT I'VE NEVER BEEN AN ANIMAL
I KNOW WERE ONLY HUMAN BUT GIRL, WHY'D YOU LET THE CANNIBAL OUT?
(CHEW ME UP AND SPIT ME RIGHT BACK OUT)

IS THIS ALL PAYBACK FOR THE THINGS I HAVE DONE?
CAUSE IF THIS ALL WAS JUST A GAME THEN I GUESS YOU HAVE WON
I REALLY STARTED TO BELIEVE THE WORDS I WRITE WERE A JOKE
UNTIL I REALIZED THE TRUTH IN EVERY WORD THAT I'VE SPOKE
I GAVE YOU EVERYTHING I HAD THEN YOU THREW IT IN A DITCH
I AM NOTHING BUT A FOOL, YOU ARE NOTHING BUT A BITCH
I AM NOTHING BUT A FOOL, YOU ARE NOTHING BUT A BITCH
I AM NOTHING BUT A FOOL, YOU ARE NOTHING BUT A BITCH

I'VE BEEN WRONG BUT I'VE NEVER BEEN AN ANIMAL
I KNOW WERE ONLY HUMAN BUT GIRL, WHY'D YOU LET THE CANNIBAL OUT?
(GIRL, WHY'D YOU LET THE CANNIBAL OUT?)
I'VE BEEN WRONG BUT I'VE NEVER BEEN AN ANIMAL
I KNOW WERE ONLY HUMAN BUT GIRL, WHY'D YOU LET THE CANNIBAL OUT?
(CHEW ME UP AND SPIT ME RIGHT BACK OUT)

“WE COUGH BLOOD ON THIS EARTH,NOW THERES A RACE FOR SPACE...
WE CAN COUGH BLOOD ON THE MOON SOON.
TOMORROW IS DRAGSVILLE, CATS... TOMORROW IS A KING SIZE DRAG”

TAKE THEM BOTTLES TO THE BACK OF YOUR THROAT
KEEP ON SUCKIN BABY GIRL, I THINK YOUR STARTING TO CHOKE
THOSE MISSED CONNECTIONS TELL YOU NOTHIN BUT LIES
SO LET THEM MASCARA TEAR DROPS FILL YOUR EYES
BECAUSE YOU DO IT TO YOURSELF, YOU DO IT TO YOURSELF
FIRST PLACE DRAMA QUEEN, YOUR TROPHY'S ON THE SHELF
YOUD LIKE TO THINK YOU KNOW ME BETTER THAN ANYONE ELSE
BUT I DONT CARE IF YOU KNOW ME CUZ I DONT EVEN KNOW MYSELF

I WRITE THESE WORDS JUST TO MAKE YOU CRY
BUT THE TRUTH IS THAT THESE WORDS MAKE ME WANNA DIE
YOU KNOW IVE ALREADY WROTE THIS SONG SO MANY DAMN TIMES
BUT I GUESS THATS THE CONSEQUENCE OF BEING SO BLIND
WHERES THE REWIND BUTTON? ITS STARTING TO FLOOD...
YOU'VE GOT THEM VIRGIN MARY TEAR DUCTS FLOWING WITH BLOOD
I GOT THAT SPECULUM DIALECT TO OPEN YOU UP
SO I CAN REACH INTO YOUR INSIDES AND PLAY WITH YOUR GUTS

YOU MUST HAVE SOLD, YOU MUST HAVE SOLD YOUR SOUL
TO GET A FLOWER IN THIS HELLHOLE, I KNOW
YOU MUST HAVE SOLD, YOU MUST HAVE SOLD YOUR SOUL
A BEAUTIFUL ROSE, A BEAUTIFUL GIRL
BUT ITS THORNS ARE FULL OF POSION AND SO ARE HERS

WHAT CRAWLED IN THE WINDOW? I KNOW YOU'RE THERE...
ALL THE NEIGHBORS THINK IM CRAZY AND IT IS NOT FAIR
CAUSE HERE THE WALLS ARE OLD AND THEY MOVE LIKE THEYRE SPEAKING
BUT I KNOW ITS MORE THAN WIND THAT HAS MY FLOORBOARDS CREAKING
YOU TRY TO TIP TOE IN MY SHADOWS BUT YOUR PLANS ARE ABSURD
BECAUSE THOSE SKELETONS YOU CARRY ARE TOO HEAVY TO GO UNHEARD
MY WORD, DARLING YOU LOOK LIKE A CRIME SCENE
AND TO TAMPER WITH YOUR EVIDENCE WOULD BE COMPROMISING

CUZ I DONT WANNA HAVE TO PULL SHARDS OF GLASS FROM MY FEET
AS A RESULT FROM ME STEPPING ALL OVER THESE SHATTERED DREAMS
YOU WANNA GLUE US BACK TOGETHER BUT THE PEICES NEVER FIT
ITS ALL WATER UNDER THE BRIDGE AND I WISH YOU WOULDN'T DROWN IN IT
COUNTLESS TIMES YOU'VE WASHED UPON MY SHORE
IN THE MIDDLE OF THE NIGHT, POUNDING FISTS ON MY DOOR
AND EVERY TIME OUR EYES MEET THEM WHEELS OF LUST START TO SPIN
I LET YOU IN, THEN YOU “LET ME IN” AND HERE WE GO AGAIN...

YOU MUST HAVE SOLD, YOU MUST HAVE SOLD YOUR SOUL
TO GET A FLOWER IN THIS HELLHOLE, I KNOW
YOU MUST HAVE SOLD, YOU MUST HAVE SOLD YOUR SOUL
A BEAUTIFUL ROSE, A BEAUTIFUL GIRL
BUT ITS THORNS ARE FULL OF POSION AND SO ARE HERS

AND I DON'T EVER WANNA SEE YOUR FACE AGAIN
BUT YOU AND I BOTH KNOW WHATS HAPPENING'
GIRL, THIS FLAME IS STILL ALIVE - FLAME IS STILL ALIVE SOMEWHERE
BURNING UP MY LIFE - BURNING UP MY PRIDE SOMEWHERE
LEFT FOOT FIRST I STEP INTO THE FIRE
WRAP MY THROAT IN PIANO WIRE
I KNOW YOUR STILL ALIVE - KNOW YOUR STILL ALIVE SOMEWHERE
FEEDING OFF MY LIFE - FEEDING OF MY PRIDE SOMEWHERE

AND SOMEDAY I HOPE TO DO YOUR AUTOPSY CAUSE BABY ITS TRUE
I'D DO ANYTHING TO BE THE LAST...
AND SOMEDAY I HOPE TO DO YOUR AUTOPSY CAUSE BABY ITS TRUE
I'D DO ANYTHING TO BE THE LAST PERSON INSIDE YOU

YOU MUST HAVE SOLD, YOU MUST HAVE SOLD YOUR SOUL
TO GET A FLOWER IN THIS HELLHOLE, I KNOW
YOU MUST HAVE SOLD, YOU MUST HAVE SOLD YOUR SOUL
A BEAUTIFUL ROSE, A BEAUTIFUL GIRL
BUT ITS THORNS ARE FULL OF POSION AND SO ARE HERS

“NOBODY LIKES ME, EVERYBODY HATES ME, GUESS I'LL GO EAT WORMS...
BIG FAT SLIMEY ONES, SHORT FAT JUICY ONES, ITSY BITSY FUZZY WUZZY WORMS...”
Track Name: That Night A Forest Grew... That NIght I Burned It Down
"I AM A LONELY GIRL LIVING IN A LONELY WORLD
AND ALL I THINK ABOUT IS HOW YOU DID ME WRONG
HOW COME WE JUST CAN'T BE LIKE WE USED TO BE?
BOY, THINGS ARE THROUGH WITH YOU AND ME"

YOU AND ME, ME AND YOU, I DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO
I'VE BEEN KNOCKING AT YOUR DOOR BUT YOU DON'T HAVE A CLUE
OR MAYBE YOU DO, BUT YOU DON'T CARE
YOU SEEM TO HAVE A LOT OF TIME BUT NONE OF IT YOU WANNA SHARE
MANY NIGHTS HAVE PASSED, DREAMING OF YOUR FACE
MANY HEARTS I'VE CRASHED, HUNGRY FOR YOUR TASTE
AND YET TO THIS DAY ME AND YOU, YOU AND ME
AN ADDICTION TO A FICTION THAT WILL NEVER BE

BELIEVE ME WHEN I SAY THE RISK OF INFECTION WAS TOO HIGH TO TAKE
SO BELIEVE ME I'M OKAY WITH BEING THE MONSTER THAT SCARES YOU AWAY

"I AM A LONELY GIRL LIVING IN A LONELY WORLD
AND ALL I THINK ABOUT IS HOW YOU DID ME WRONG
HOW COME WE JUST CAN'T BE LIKE WE USE TO BE?
BOY, THINGS ARE THROUGH WITH YOU AND ME"

I'VE FOUND THE TARGET. I'VE AIMED MY SHOT
AND I'D PULL THE TRIGGER BUT A BLANK IS ALL I'VE GOT
A BLANK MIND, BLANK THOUGHTS, BLANK STARE
CAUSE WHEN I LOOK INTO YOUR EYES YOU ARE NEVER REALLY THERE
WHERE THE FUCK? WHERE THE FUCK IS YOUR BRAIN?
YOU MUST HAVE PUKED IT OUT DIGESTING ALL THE POISON CONTAINED
INSIDE THE TIME WE ONCE SPENT THAT FELT SO UNIQUE
BUT NOW THOSE MEMORIES LIE IN THE STAINS ON MY BED SHEETS
I PICK THE REMAINS FROM BETWEEN MY TEETH
BECAUSE THE TASTE OF YOUR FLESH HASN'T LEFT FOR WEEKS
THE SWEAT FROM YOUR PALMS BURNED THE TIP OF MY TONGUE
AND TIED TOGETHER MY EMOTIONS WITH A GRASP ON MY LUNGS
AND ITS A WASTE OF TIME GETTING THESE KNOTS UNTANGLED
WHEN THE PARTS WE NEED TO FUNCTION HAVE BECOME DISABLED
BY THE HANDS OF THOSE WHO HOLD THE POWER
TO TAKE THE SWEETEST OF TASTES AND MAKE THEM SO SOUR

"I AM A LONELY GIRL LIVING IN A LONELY WORLD
AND ALL I THINK ABOUT IS HOW YOU DID ME WRONG
HOW COME WE JUST CAN'T BE LIKE WE USE TO BE?
BOY, THINGS ARE THROUGH WITH YOU AND ME"

DESTROY, ONLY FOR YOU
DESTROY, ONLY FOR ME
DESTROY EVERYTHING THAT WE EVER BUILT
DESTROYED IS ALL WE WERE MEANT TO BE

“WHAT YOU'RE SAYING IS “I REALLY DON'T WANT PEOPLE CLOSE TO ME” AND SUBCONCIOUSLY YOU'RE PUSHING THEM AWAY. PEOPLE DON'T NESSICARALY WANT TO PUSH PEOPLE AWAY BUT WHAT THEY DO WANT TO DO IS HIDE THEMSELVES... OFTEN TIMES, OTHER PEOPLE WANT TO GET TO MUCH INTO YOUR BUSINESS AND THATS ANOTHER STORY, BUT IF YOU FEEL THAT YOU'RE PUSHING PEOPLE AWAY THEN A TIME FOR A SELF ANALYSIS IS NOW...”

I SHOULD HAVE MY HEAD EXAMINED
FOR BEING ON THESE STREETS AT THIS TIME OF NIGHT
ALL THE ROADS TO YOUR BRAIN JUST LEAD TO DEAD ENDS
IT JUST ISN'T WORTH THE FIGHT
I KNOW THAT I'VE HURT A LOT OF PEOPLE
I KNOW I'VE BEEN WRONG FROM THE FUCKING START
BUT WHEN YOU SPEND SO MUCH TIME PUTTING CREATURES BACK TOGETHER
IT CAN FEEL SO GOOD TO JUST TEAR THEM APART

(AND IT FEELS SO GOOD TO JUST TEAR YOU APART)

"YOU'RE STANDING THERE WAITING FOR ME
AS IF I WOULD COME BACK TO YOU
BUT THE CHANCE IS OVER NOW, YOU AND ME WILL NEVER BE
YOU AND ME WILL NEVER, NEVER BE"

BELIEVE ME WHEN I SAY THE CLIMB UP YOUR MOUNTAIN WAS SUCH A MISTAKE
SO BELIEVE ME I'M OKAY WITH TAKING THIS FALL JUST TO MAKE YOUR HEART BREAK

"I AM A LONELY GIRL LIVING IN A LONELY WORLD
AND ALL I THINK ABOUT IS HOW YOU DID ME WRONG
HOW COME WE JUST CAN'T BE LIKE WE USE TO BE?
BOY, THINGS ARE THROUGH WITH YOU AND ME"

DESTROY, ONLY FOR YOU
DESTROY, ONLY FOR ME
DESTROY EVERYTHING THAT WE EVER BUILT
DESTROYED IS ALL WE WERE MEANT TO BE

“I WOKE UP I A NEW YORK MINUTE
I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO, EVERYTHING I KNEW HAD CHANGED”

“WHY IS IT THAT I HAD TO BE SO AFRAID?
WHY IS IT THAT I FELT A LITTLE ASHAMED?
WHY IS IT THAT I HAD TO HANDLE IT ALL?
WHY IT IT THAT I HAD TO TRIP AND FALL?”

I TRIP AND FALL INTO ANOTHER DIMENSION
WHERE THIS TRAFFIC JAM DOESNT KEEP SLOWING ME DOWN
AND FROWN UPON THE LAWS OF INVENTION
WHERE ALL MY CHILDREN LIKE TO CREATE THESE SOUNDS
OF A TIME OF TIME WE HAVE YET TO EXPERIENCE
AND THE LIVES THAT WE HAVE YET TO LIVE
I OPEN UP THIS BOOK AND STARE DEEP INTO YOUR FAMILY TREE
ONLY TO FIND THAT YOUVE BEEN BREEDING OFF OF COUNTERFIET SEEDS
I THOUGHT I TASTED SOMETHING SOUR IN YOUR BLOOD STREAM
THE PUZZLE PIECES FROM ANOTHER MOTHERS OLD BAD DREAMS
THIS WORLD IS COLD, MY WORDS WRITE DEATH IN THE SKY
TO PULL YOUR TREE FROM ITS ROOTS AND WATCH YOUR EVERYTHING DIE,
EVERYTHING DIE, EVERYTHING DIE

“WHY IS IT THAT I HAD TO BE SO AFRAID?”

THESE DISHES ARE DIRTY, THIS SINKS FILLED UP
OVERFLOWING WITH YOUR ALCOHOL AND CIGGARETTE BUTTS
ALONE I STAND OUTSIDE THESE FACTORIES, ALL COVERED IN RUST
WHILE YOUR COTTON CANDY SMOKE STACKS BREATHE EDIBLE DUST
GET INTIMATE WITH THE ASPHALT, KISS THE GROUND
WHILE I'M SKIPPING ACROSS ROOFTOPS, ON TOP OF THE TOWN
I HAVE A PLAN FOR REDEVELOPMENT, MY CITY IS DEAD
NO TIME FOR TEARS, NO TIME FOR REGRETS

“WHY IS IT THAT I HAD TO BE SO AFRAID?
WHY IS IT THAT I FELT A LITTLE ASHAMED?
WHY IS IT THAT I HAD TO HANDLE IT ALL?
WHY IT IT THAT I HAD TO TRIP AND FALL?”
Track Name: Origami Fetish
TAKE ONE IF YOU WANT ONE? ARE YOU FUCKING WITH ME?
WHATS SO BEAUTIFUL? ITS NOT SO EASY TO SEE...
IT SMELLS LIKE DEATH. THERES BLOOD ON THE WALLS
AND THE PAPER S BURNING
SHES DEAD... SHES GONE
IN THIS NIGHTMARE I DONT BELONG

YOU WRITE ME LETTERS OF HATE WITHOUT WORDS BEING SAID
(WORDS BEING SAID... WORDS BEING SAID...)
AND SING ME LULLABIES SO DARK THAT THEY COULD WAKE THE DEAD
(THAT THEY COULD WAKE THE DEAD... THAT THEY COULD WAKE THE DEAD)
SPIN THE BOTTLE, SPIN THE BOTTLE, WATCH THE SKY TURN RED
WHATS SO GOOD ABOUT THIS? I DONT UNDERSTAND

WHILE I SIT HERE ALL I CAN DO IS REMEMBER... REMEMBER
HOW MUCH LONGER WILL THIS GO ON?
I'M TRYING SO FUCKING HARD TO FORGET HER... FORGET HER
MAYBE IM THINKING TOO MUCH...

YOU'LL LOOK BETTER WHEN I AM BLIND
YOU'LL SLEEP BETTER WHEN I AM DEAD
THIS SECONDHAND ROMANCE IS UNSTABLE
IT ISN'T WORTH BEING FED

YOUR THROAT PLUS MY HANDS EQUALS A POSSIBLE CHANGE
A CHANGE THAT JUST MIGHT PUT A SMILE ON MY FACE
“LOVE YOUR ENEMY, TURN THY CHEEK”
FEED THE HUNGRY AND EAT THE WEAK

YOU WRITE ME LETTERS OF HATE WITHOUT WORDS BEING SAID
(WORDS BEING SAID... WORDS BEING SAID...)
AND SING ME LULLABIES SO DARK THAT THEY COULD WAKE THE DEAD
(THAT THEY COULD WAKE THE DEAD... THAT THEY COULD WAKE THE DEAD)
SPIN THE BOTTLE, WATCH THE SKY TURN RED
WHATS SO GOOD ABOUT THIS? I DONT UNDERSTAND

PATTY CAKE, PATTY CAKE, BAKERS MAN
BAKE ME UP A HOLOGRAM AS FAST AS YOU CAN
WITH A FAMILIAR FACE IN A FAMILIAR PLACE
WITH AN UNFAMILIAR APPETITE FOR DARKER TASTES
YOU LICKED THE BLOOD OFF THE KNIFE THAT YOU'VE DUG INTO MY SPINE
I GUESS THIS LITTLE TRAGEDY MUST TASTE PRETTY DEVINE
BY THAT LOOK IN YOUR EYES I CAN TELL YOU WANT MORE
AND IVE BEEN LOOKING FOR A CHANCE JUST TO STEELE THE SCORE
MY CONSCIOUS HAS BEEN USED, ABANDONED AND ABUSED
DIG YOUR TEETH INTO MY NECK, MAKE SURE YOU DONT FORGET TO CHEW
BEFORE YOU SWALLOW, BEFORE YOU SWALLOW ME WHOLE
AND DIGEST WHAT LITTLE BIT I HAVE LEFT OF MY SOUL

YOU'LL LOOK BETTER WHEN I AM BLIND
YOU'LL SLEEP BETTER WHEN I AM DEAD
THIS SECONDHAND ROMANCE IS UNSTABLE
IT ISN'T WORTH BEING FED
X2

WE ARE BROKEN SO I GUESS WE ALL NEED OUR “FIX”
BUT ARE WE EVER “REPAIRED”? WELL I GUESS THATS THE TRICK
THERE ARE NO ANSWERS... WE DIE ALONE AND THAT IS IT
PRAY FOR SALVATION? YOU MAKE ME FUCKING SICK
SO BARK LIKE A DOG BECAUSE YOU CAN'T SEEM TO WALK LIKE A FUCKING MAN
I SAID BARK LIKE A DOG BECAUSE YOU CAN'T SEEM TO WALK LIKE A FUCKING MAN

“HEAVEN IS RIGHT THERE WAITNG FOR YOU... AND ALL YOU HAVE TO DO... IS DIE”
Track Name: Night Terrors
“THANK YOU VERY MUCH”

THIS DREAM IS EMPTY, THIS DREAM IS DEAD
THIS DREAM IS EMPTY, THIS DREAM IS DEAD
THIS DREAM IS EMPTY, THIS DREAM IS DEAD
AND I PRAY THAT I NEVER WAKE UP AGAIN

TODAY WHEN I WOKE UP I FELT LIKE I COULD TAKE ON THE WORLD
SOMETIMES WISHES COME TRUE...

IN THIS CITY OF NEON DUST CLOUDS I AM THE BREEZE
THAT SEPARATES MAN FROM MACHINE
I AM THE HAND THAT PLANS TO SUFFOCATE THE WALLS OF YOUR DREAMS
I AM THE FLAME THAT SHALL DISINTEGRATE THE BONES OF THE WEAK
PLEASE, WHY YOU GOT THEM CANNONS POINTED AT ME
WHEN YOURE THE FATHER OF THE CHOAS THAT IM STARTING TO BREED?
I AM THE AUTHOR OF THE STORIES THAT YOUR CHILDREN WILL READ
I AM THE SURGEON OF THIS PLANET OUT TO CURE ITS DISEASE

AND NEVER WILL I, NEVER WILL I
NEVER I LIVE YOUR WORLD OF PRETEND
NEVER WILL I, NEVER WILL I
NEVER WILL I LET MY PEOPLE...

DECEND INTO THE OBVIOUS TRADITION
OF THE ONES WHO CRAWL BEANEATH THIER LORDS SUBMISSION
JUST TO PLEASE THE TOUNGE OF A PERVERTED MAGICIAN
OUT TO RAPE OUR LAND AND FEEDS HIS SICK ADDICTION
BECAUSE THE POWER OF A MORTAL MAN CANNOT BE DEFINED
BY NOTHING OTHER THAN THE FIRE THAT YOU SEE IN HIS EYES
AND IM BURNNING ALIVE

TODAY WHEN I WOKE UP I FELT LIKE I COULD TAKE ON THE WORLD
SOMETIMES WISHES COME TRUE...

IN THIS CITY OF FRESH CHALK OUTLINES IM THE RAIN
THAT PLANS TO WASH AWAY THE STAINS YOU HAVE MADE
I AM THE BLADE THAT PLANS TO SLICE AWAY THE MEAT OF THE TAME
I AM THE KING THAT SHALL ANALIATE THE PAWNS OF YOUR GAME

BECAUSE I NEVER BELIEVED IN YOUR GOD UNTIL I SAW A RELFLECTION
OF THE MAN I HAVE BECOME AS A RESULT OF THIS INFECTION
I'VE SEEN BETTER LOOKS ON A CADAVER
I'VE SEEN BRIGHTER SMILES ON A SHADOW
IVE SEEN ALL I NEED TO SEE...
IVE SEEN ALL I NEED TO SEE...

DECEND INTO THE OBVIOUS TRADITION
OF THE ONES WHO CRAWL BEANEATH THIER LORDS SUBMISSION
JUST TO PLEASE THE TOUNGE OF A PERVERTED MAGICIAN
OUT TO RAPE OUR LAND AND FEEDS HIS SICK ADDICTION
CUZ THE POWER OF A MORTAL MAN CANNOT BE DEFINED
BY NOTHING OTHER THAN THE FIRE THAT YOU SEE IN HIS EYES
AND IM BURNNING ALIVE

THE WOLVESCAN SMELL THE BLOOD
THE WOLVES HAVE GOT MY SCENT
THEY KEEP TELLING ME TO COME HOME
BUT THIER HOME IS A PLACE THAT IVE NEVER KNOWN
THE WOLVES CAN SMELL THE BLOOD
THE WOLVES HAVE GOT YOUR SCENT
YOURE NOT PERFECT, YOUR WORLD IS A LIE
A LITTLE ISLAND IN THE MIDDLE OF YOUR EGOS SUPPLY

AND NEVER WILL I, NEVER WILL I
NEVER I LIVE YOUR WORLD OF PRETEND
NEVER WILL I, NEVER WILL I
NEVER WILL I LET MY PEOPLE...

DECEND INTO THE OBVIOUS TRADITION
OF THE ONES WHO CRAWL BEANEATH THIER LORDS SUBMISSION
JUST TO PLEASE THE TONGUES OF A PERVERTED MAGICIAN
OUT TO RAPE OUR LAND AND FEEDS HIS SICK ADDICTION
CUZ THE POWER OF A MORTAL MAN CANNOT BE DEFINED
BY NOTHING OTHER THAN THE FIRE THAT YOU SEE IN HIS EYES
AND IM BURNING ALIVE

“THANK YOU VERY MUCH”

THIS DREAM IS EMPTY, THIS DREAM IS DEAD
THIS DREAM IS EMPTY, THIS DREAM IS DEAD
THIS DREAM IS EMPTY, THIS DREAM IS DEAD
AND I PRAY THAT I NEVER WAKE UP AGAIN
Track Name: Send In The Clown
ON THESE WALLS YOUR IMAGES EMBRACE ME
ON THESE WALLS YOU'RE MARKETING “SIN”
THROUGH THESE EYES YOUR STRUCTURES CONFRONT ME
WITH OPEN LEGS TRYING TO PULL ME IN
BUT FACE DOWN IN THE GUTTER I CAN SEE YOUR HAND
IN A STREAM OF BAD MEMORIES ABSORBED BY THE SAND
I CAN FEEL YOUR DARKEST SECRETS PULL THE STRINGS ON MY NECK
AS I WONDER THROUGH YOUR CORRIDOR OF SHAME AND REGRET

LITTLE GIRL, LITTLE GIRL... WHERE DID YOU GO?
FACE FIRST INTO THE OVEN DOWN A CANNIBALS THROAT?
DID YOU LIKE THE WAY IT FELT SWIMMING INSIDE HIS MOUTH
'TIL HE GREW TIRED OF YOUR TASTE AND SPIT YOU RIGHT BACK OUT?
I MUST SAY, YOUR FLAVOR DOES DIE QUICK
SO PUT THAT BODY TO BED CUZ I'M DONE WITH IT
GO TRY AND REACH FOR THE STARS WITH YOUR CRUMBLING BONES
AND CLICK THEM HEELS ALL YOU WANT BECAUSE YOU DON'T HAVE A PLACE TO CALL HOME

WHEN YOUR PATH IS LOST AND THERE'S NO PLACE TO GO
THESE UNFAMILIAR CEILINGS BECOME YOUR HOME
IN ALL MY DREAMS I NEVER THOUGHT YOU'D BE THE BREEZE
THAT CYCLES BENEATH THESE STRANGERS SHEETS

PULL UP YOUR SLEEVES, SHOW THE WORLD YOUR WRISTS
YOU HAVE THE SCARS OF A JESTER ON A CRUCIFIX
WITH THEM FABLES CARVED DEEP INTO THE PALMS OF YOUR HANDS
YOU WAVE A MAGIC WAND AROUND TO CAST YOUR SPELLS ON THE DAMNED
GODDAMN YOU LOOK GOOD, THE TALK OF THE TOWN
EVERYBODY WANTS A PIECE AND YOU'RE JUST HANDING IT OUT
YOUR SOUL IS HOLLOW. ITS JUST AN EMPTY HAT
'TILL YOU STICK A RABBIT IN IT AND DO TRICKS FOR THE RATS

AND YOU SAY YOU GOT NOWHERE TO GO...
AND YOU SAY YOU GOT NOWHERE TO GO...
AND YOU SAY YOU GOT NOWHERE TO GO...
AND YOU SAY YOU GOT NOWHERE TO GO...

WHEN YOUR PATH IS LOST AND THERE'S NO PLACE TO GO
THESE UNFAMILIAR CEILINGS BECOME YOUR HOME
IN ALL MY DREAMS I NEVER THOUGHT YOU'D BE THE BREEZE
THAT CYCLES BENEATH THESE STRANGERS SHEETS

YOU'RE NO CANIDATE FOR MY FANTASY BUT I CAN'T GET YOU OUT OF MY MIND
I GO TO SLEEP JUST TO DREAM OF THE DAY WHEN YOUR BODY BECOMES MINE
BUT THIS ISN'T LIKE PLACING MY FOOTPRINTS ON THE MOON BECAUSE I KNOW
MANY MEN HAVE EXPLORED YOU, MANY MEN HAVE EXPLORED...

AND YOU SAY YOU HAVE NOWHERE TO GO...
AND YOU SAY YOU HAVE NOWHERE TO GO...
BUT I AM THE PORCH LIGHT WAITING...
WAITING FOR YOU TO COME HOME

IGNORANCE. YOUR HEART MIGHT AS WELL BE A TRASH BAG
FILL IT UP WITH GARBAGE, LEAVE IT ON THE STREET TO ROT
REPULSIVE. YOUR SOUL MIGHT AS WELL BELONG TO THE DIRT THAT YOU PISS ON
THE DIRT WE ALL FUCKING SHIT ON
TELL ME, WHAT DO YOU STAND FOR?
TELL ME, WHAT DO YOU STAND FOR?
I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU STAND FOR...
I DON'T UNDERSTAND WHAT YOU STAND FOR...
BECAUSE I DON'T KNOW WHATS LEFT TO STAND FOR
Track Name: Gratitude With The Grace Of A Guillotine
IN MY CITY THE CLOSEST THING TO REAL
IS THE MOST SYNTHETIC THING THAT YOU WILL EVER FEEL
LIVING LIFE INSIDE A BUBBLE MADE OUT OF MAGNETIC RUBBLE
WITH A SUICIDAL DOUBLE ALWAYS UP TO SOME TROUBLE
YEAH, THE SCIENTIST, THE TERRORIST
THE DISCIPLINE OF A GOD IN HIS FIST
RUNNING HIS FINGERS THROUGH THE STRUCTURE CONTAINED
INSIDE THE TINY LITTLE FIBERS OF MY DNA
SO I SLEEP ALL DAY BECAUSE ITS BETTER TO DREAM
THEN BE AWAKE IN A CITY WHERE I CANNOT BREATH
YOU GOT ME RUNNING FOR THE WINDOWS GASPING FOR AIR
ONLY TO JUMP INTO A WORLD THAT ISNT EVEN REALLY THERE

OH FUCK, IM FALLING DOWN
TO THE GROUND

CONSUMED BY YOUR LEVELS OF HATE
THE LINES YOU ERASE, THE SMILES THAT YOU FAKE
CONSUMED BY YOUR LEVELS OF FAITH
THE MINDS YOU ERASE, THE SOULS THAT YOU TAKE
CONSUMED BY YOUR LEVELS OF HATE
EXCUSE ME BUT WHO ARE YOU?
CONSUMED BY YOUR LEVELS OF FAITH
EXCUSE ME BUT WHO ARE YOU?

EXCUSE ME BUT WHO ARE YOU?

THE RESIDENTS OF DARKNESS REST IN THE SHADE OF THE TREES
WHERE THE NIGHT FLOWERS BLOOM AROUND THE CLOCK HERE
IN YOUR FACTORY OF BROKEN LIMBS AND AND PLASTIC SINS
MY GUTS SEEM TO POUR OUT OF MY MOUTH HERE
OH HELP ME, HELP ME, BREAK AWAY
FROM THE HALLS WHERE THE CHILDREN USE CADAVERS TO PLAY
AND SPREAD OUR DREAMS ACROSS THE WALLS WITH THIER CRAYOLA BLOOD
TO ERADICATE THE INNOCENCE AND DISSIPATE THE DISSONANCE
BETWEEN THE STREETS MADE UP OF CRUMBLING GLASS
AND THE STAIRCASES TO HEAVEN BLOCKED BY BUNDLES OF TRASH
LET US PASS, LET US PASS, WE'LL CLIMB OUR WAY TO THE TOP
ONLY TO FIND THERES NOTHING THERE EXCEPT A MIGHTY BIG DROP

OH FUCK, IWE'RE FALLING DOWN
TO THE GROUND

CONSUMED BY YOUR LEVELS OF HATE
THE LINES YOU ERASE, THE SMILES THAT YOU FAKE
CONSUMED BY YOUR LEVELS OF FAITH
THE MINDS YOU ERASE, THE SOULS THAT YOU TAKE
CONSUMED BY YOUR LEVELS OF HATE
EXCUSE ME BUT WHO ARE YOU?
CONSUMED BY YOUR LEVELS OF FAITH
EXCUSE ME BUT WHO ARE YOU?

EXCUSE ME BUT WHO ARE YOU?

I THREW GOLD BRICKS THROUGH YOUR BABYLON
I'M A GHOST IN THE MACHINE THAT YOU THOUGHT WAS GONE
THERE'S NO OFF SWITCH, YOU'RE OUT OF LUCK
I HIT THE SELF-DESTRUCT MAN, NOW WE'RE ALL FUCKED
PARANOIA AS A PASS-TIME
I SWEAR TO GOD THAT THIS ISN'T THE LAST TIME
PRESS DELETE, RAGE AGAINST THE PLAN
OR YOU CAN PRY YOUR NECK FROM MY COLD DEAD HANDS

OH MY SWEET GHOST, MY INVISIBLE FRIEND
I TRY TO DRAW YOUR PICTURE, OVER AND OVER AGAIN
BUT SOMETHING ISNT RIGHT, SOMETHINGS OUT OF PLACE
EVERY IMAGE I MAKE IS JUST A MIRROR OF MY OWN FACE

YOU HOLD THE ONES YOU LOVE WITH FEAR, KEEP THEM UNDER YOUR WINGS
THEY PULL OUT YOUR FEATHERS, THEY TEAR YOU TO SHREDS
YOUR SHELTER MEANS NOTHING TO THEM
UNGRATEFUL, THE RIVERS RUN BLACK WITH DECIET
WE PLANTED A TREE, THEY REPLACED THE SEED
IMPREGNATED THESE FORESTS TO SPAWN OFF THEIR GREED
THEY SAY “MONEY DOESNT GROW ON TREES
UNLESS YOU KNOCK THEM DOWN TO BUILD A HIGHWAY TO YOUR DREAMS”
WE ARE CURSED, WE ARE PLAGUED
AND WHATS THE POINT OF STANDING UP IF THERES NOTHING TO SAVE?
WHATS THE POINT OF GOING OUT IF THERESE NOTHING TO SEE
THAT YOU CAN'T SEE CLEARER ON A HIGH DEFINITION SCREEN?
WE ARE ALIVE FOR NOW BUT STILL EVERYTHING IS DEAD TO ME
I SAID, WE ARE ALIVE FOR NOW BUT STILL EVERYTHING IS DEAD TO ME
AND THANK YOU FOR YOUR COOPERATION
