Let him spit it in the air Let them out for us to see This is the greatest news we’ll know The end of another dynasty Gladly darkening the skies Call it an emergency Locked into our current path All the while calling ourselves free La la la la la la la La la la la la la La la la la Now they’re covering their eyes Inconvenient travesties Not aligning with their tribe Pretending that we’ll never really see Slowly boiling in the stew Only one thing left to do Hit the fire with our feet Fight until we have all been run through Don’t expect an enlightenment Don’t expect to be patronized Don’t expect the god of your choice to compromise It’s been building up for years It should be no surprise Counting Halos in the clouds Not a single bird will fly Passing all of your blame to me Forgetting that you have no alibi I’ll forgive you when you weep After I’m allowed to sigh Lower your head indignantly And become another common passer-by

Dance 03:31
Conversation’s overrated Can’t you see I’ve had enough I’ve had enough Tried your way and celebrated Now it’s back to giving up Call my bluff Don’t tell me to dance Don’t tell me to roll I might just like a second chance To take a stroll Enjoy your feast And drink you wine I can promise you my friend I’m doing fine Don’t sit alone Come up to me and share my bone No need to be hasty Enjoy your time and taste the throne Told you once “It’s never dated” I grow tired of saying too much Retreat to touch Felt the frayed end of your tailcoat All that’s left for turtles like us It’s just a fuss Flip the lights and find the pieces Did you plan on spilling your guts? Is that a plus? Gather up your humble feelings Accountrement that’s gathering dust Believe in trust

The Heat 04:50
Walk’n on the beach Eye’n ways to make an oar But the water’s deep this side Washing back up on the shore You know the truth You know the sleep won’t get you by You know the truth You know they’ll never blow your mind At least we’ll change our ways Thinking nothing of our own clichés Taking a step back Taking a step back You can write it in a letter You can put it on the street But you’ll always feel the tremor Every time we meet As the cloud settles over Blinding only those who see The ground will open up As we lose our feet And we feel the heat Out on the country side Deftly walking through the wood The snakes will part their ways But not for everyone they should You know the truth You know the prey will soon be tried You know the truth You know your heroes have all lied At least we’ll change our ways Thinking nothing of our own clichés Taking a step back Taking a step back But never really knowing what that means

Face Down 04:13
I love your style And your classic hair Your moves are gripping me At the edge, of my chair I note your posture Is so laze fare Pulls charismatically So the stadium’s aware I know you said That you want to fight But I can’t wait To see what you’re doing tonight Face down tonight I know we’re headed for a challenging trial Face down tonight It hasn’t been this good in awhile Face down tonight A burst of fire As you walk with pride A dire spectre lurks Close to your side A test of skills On the grandest stage A battling of the wills Every trick Every page

Dog 02:51
You You have a dog in this fight And you You want it all to feel right But if there ever came a day It was taken all away... Would you be in line too? Have you ever Done a selfless thing? Somethin’ no one Would know that you bring Have you taken Just a piece of your time Or just stolen Anything you can find? If there ever came a day It was taken all away I hope to See you in line You And all the rabble you bring Suffocated Anything worth doing So I’m told I should just let it go But the embers Are just starting to glow So I’ll give it Up to you This is what it’s all come to I’ll see you in line soon I’ll see you in line

Tell Me 03:13
The air is thick You look away I can’t take the silent treatment I don’t like this somber feeling It seems evident That it’s over for you I must say it feels convenient One last chance to hit the ceiling How can you quantify atonement Tell me Anything I think I’m gonna crash I stood beside you Please just stand for me Tell me something The moment’s fading fast It’s best the face the harsh reality So talk to me Tell me anything To be alone Is to be with you At least I thought until you Taught me dread I never knew too I’m not angry In fact I get it Finding comfort in the true blue One last step until it’s all new We cannot walk back from this moment Tell me how you Grew tired of me But limped me along while I was blinded by Beauty’s honesty Now you’d rather discard me Like your old grey pet But first you must look me in the eye And acknowledge what I said

On and On 04:22
Dear When it’s ordinarily One more time until we’ll be Right where we are headed to go We Focus on the charity Of the ones assumed to be Somehow greater than what we prepose But we’re not Caught on the outside of the street Don’t get bought Giving the last of what we’ll keep On and on On and on we go But the streets won’t shine Till we’re out of time On and on we go On and on we go Till we break our spines Will the stars align Lookin for the future Through the glasses of Some other alibi Now That we’re on the brink of being A step away from what we’ve seen Others like us turn when they’re thrown Don’t look To the stars or Trappistines Neglecting the actual happenings Only look to the world that we know On and on we pull ourselves Through other peoples‘ narratives Losing sleep on others’ dreams That never will complete our story Publishing our negatives In empty useless blackened rooms When no one cares to look We’re using halide as perfume.

I seem to hear it most everyday And I try to understand The motivations of their prey Settled in Now it’s come to what I’ll say But I stutter at the thought Of playing anything this way But whaddya know Here I go I know you like it Nice and slow But the echo rings in nighttime Till I’m lost on where to go I’ll feed the feeling While I know But the honesty’s my manager And lies are never ever Going to show But with you here I might just change my mind Thoughts just spin around Until your fantasy is mine So in time I’ll need a change of clothes I’ve saved my better vision For the handsome first row So come in close Listen, dear Now you’re reaching out To offer me your hand Nothing I’d rather do Than obey your command Tellin me it’s all part of the plan Standing close to you It’s like we’re new again But youth has given you the upper hand I know you like it I know you You know me This is how It’s gonna be I’ve seen the future Bleak and true You’ll be me and hate Anybody new

You With the weathered green skin I want to tell you that They’ve ignored you And this is how it ends “Ahoy!” They would shout from the bridge Now anytime someone comes around they Lock’m up in pens So if you’re watching then Take a note to make your last amends I’m wanna tell you that This may be the last time That we’re friends Welcome to the end No use to pretend All you have is all you will defend Tried our hand at peace But ordered to retreat It’s time we realize we’re at the end Joy Will recede from the street As authority reigns on you Ensuring our defeat A ploy Got us into this mess But don’t you worry You’ll never get the Chance for recompense Welcome to the end Welcome to the end Welcome to the end Welcome to the end Welcome to the end Welcome to the end Welcome to the end Welcome to the end
