Track Name: Until The End
Such a delicate weakness to keep your heart on the run
Pick up all the pieces, you got a mouth like gun
Hot lead in the chamber son, you've got a trigger disease
You know it's got a hold of you
Black and blue ‘till you bleed

I don't need your rules
I won't play by them
You could be somebody else's fool
And play it cool 'till the end

Walk your life on a tightrope, the tension keeps you afloat
Attitude at this altitude is just a piss in the breeze
No time to come undone, spitting blood through your teeth
Nobody got control of you
Black and blue till you bleed

I don't need your rules
I won't play by them
You could be somebody else's fool
Just a tool

'till the end
Track Name: Animals
Play like kids in the sun.
Stuck in the mud, I’m stuck in the middle with you.
My god, what a view.

Building castles in our minds.
“A beautiful way to spend the time. Don’t you think?”
We sink into the sand. Sink into the sand.

Just animals, but we tangle with reality.
Melting away in the sun.

Skipping like stones on a pond.
Over the edge, under the ledge.
Behind my rose-tinted eyes.

As we float out with the tide.
Juxtaposed.
Manifest.
Shift.
The Paradigm.
If only for a time.

Just animals, but we tangle with reality.
Melting away in the sun.

Just animals.
Just animals.
Track Name: Anything
Plunder the neon in the moonlight.
It’s all a game if ya chose to play.
I gamble all my sweat on a heartache.
Curse and howl at the moon to feel closer to you.

Not what I had in mind
You hit me like a cannonball between the eyes.
Always come prepared, she said
For anything.

Well the strip, it was built to get hit.
All these bandits and thieves they just do as they please.
I count myself among you, a witness to the mob.
Raising more than tension
When it’s hell that we want

Just what I had in mind
You hit me like a cannonball between the eyes.
Always come prepared, she said
For anything.
Track Name: Gunslinger
If I found some way to help you, helped you to keep your mind?
Safety in those simple values that you shoot down every time.
No need for pointing fingers, I’m the trigger you’re the gun.
That you wanna cover.
Don’t bother. Fist that’s ruling everyone.

I’ve got a question for you.
When is enough, enough for you?

Did you find a way to breakthrough? Become a symbol of the time.
Something to ease the tension.
My blood won't help you stay afloat.

I’ve got a question for you.
When is enough, enough?
I’ve got a question for you.
When is enough, enough?

Well you know in life you only reap what you sow.
Well you know in life you only reap what you sow.
So go! Reap in all that you have sown.
Track Name: Blind Lead The Blind
Cannibals with a taste for greed.
A scattered tribe with a tendency leaning towards the obscene.
Lights that shimmer lead them home.
Unto the shore of skin and broken bones.
As far as the eye can see.

Day turns to night.
The blind lead the blind.

Flock of sheep, no shepherds for hire.
Fixed on the smokestack.
Creep into the sky,
To block the sun.

Who pays the piper calls the tune.
Under the influence.
Run down as far as the eye can see.

Day turns to night
The blind lead the blind.
Run down as far as the eye can see.

The blind lead the blind.
The blind lead the blind.
Track Name: The Divide
High hopes for the towns below,
They don’t know that the enemy is poverty.
Uproot the right man
And recognize that bowing out is never wrong.
Shake down the sheriff now
He’s got pockets deeper than a gold mine
Time to get it right,
The fight is wasting you.

Now don’t you see there’s enough for you and me.
As long as we can learn to divide.
What is mine.

Peel back the cataracts
Unless you like what you see?
Turn back to face the wrap
Give in, give up and face the truth.

Now don’t you see there’s enough for you and me.
As long as we can learn to divide.
What is mine.

Peel Back
Unless You
Turn Back
And Face The Truth
Track Name: The Fall
Say what you will, do what you must
It don’t matter that much to me
What’s with the fretting? What’s with the fuss?
When we’ve got all the time in the world to be anything that we want

So baby let’s roll the bones
And watch them lie where they’ve fallen
The future’s not mapped out for us
The here and now has arrived

I’m levitating to new heights
But the art of it all is in the fall
Tell you the truth, I could get used to making all the same mistakes with you again and again

So baby let’s roll the bones
And watch them lie where they’ve fallen
The future’s not mapped out for us
The here and now has arrived
Track Name: Stun Grenade
Mindful propaganda.
Deal with the commotion.
Walls shield the fear but it won't subside.
Soldiers sent in to take the heat.
Youthful minds don’t skip a beat.

Warning shots been fired.
Time to make your move.
So move… over and out.

Everybody at attention,
A plan is in motion.
We see it in each other’s eyes.
So out of the blue.
Wasted breath won’t fan this heat.
Pendulum swings to a different beat.

Warning shots been fired.
Time to make your move.
So move… over and out.
Track Name: Atom Bomb
There’s no need to suffer like me,
Gifts from above. Thy will be done.
Eyes set ablaze, consumed by the flame.
They will be done. Chasing the sun.

Never saw it coming but you blew me away.
Never saw it coming…

Time standing still, forever we will regret what’s to come,
Thy will is done.
Blink of an eye, crimson red skies. Fusion, confusion,
Progress denied.

Never saw it coming but you blew me away.
Never saw it coming...
Never saw it coming but you blew me away.
Never saw it coming...
Track Name: Hostage
Get away from this old town
No way in and no way out
Between nowhere
And my dreams are shared out in the wind
Whispers to oblivion
Old friends I hold you dear.

To the ghosts in my head
I’m your hostage
Long gone
Not forgotten

Don’t want to get away from you
Just as much a part of me
Taken the bitter
Take in the sweet

Memories worth more than gold
Mixed in with the lumps of coal
A sum of everyone
One Fleeting moment
To usher in the dawn
A toast to the ones both here and gone.
To live, to lose, to love.
My offerings are just an echo in the void

To the ghosts in my head
I’m your hostage
Long gone
Not forgotten

Don’t want to get away from you
Just as much a part of me
Taken the bitter
Take in the sweet

Get away from this old town
No way in and no way out
Between nowhere
And my dreams are shared out in the wind
Whispers to oblivion
Old friends I hold you dear.

To live, to lose, to love
One Fleeting moment
To usher in the dawn

A toast to the ones both here and gone.

Don’t want to get away from you
Just as much a part of me
Taken the bitter
Take in the sweet
Leave your fears and hopes behind.
Commit to the night

To the ghosts in my head
I’m your hostage
Long gone
Not forgotten
