Track Name: Violence
obsessive violence can't look away i see an aircraft landing on a frozen lake how much of it is murder? and how much is fake? whatever makes you tick I know you need your fix can you feel the impact from across the world? face full of loss and shame but it's a give and take with each senator hostile it's a loaded game who doesn't love their violence when they can't feel pain? go ahead and lose your mind the shots are called beyond our time the plan is set in place we don't feel the same the thrill escaped me I need it dark as night I'm obsessed with violence I'll never see the light
Track Name: Great Divide
menace outside over red lights open my eyes to the size they've drawn a line purchasing flocks all the gates are locked do we show no fear these blocks of steel the coward is all powerful say nothing but "gentrify!" are we so romantic to stand on either side? this is the great divide hopeless and cold is it all she wrote? have you left your mark so bold and dark? it's the same elite that oppose your needs I suppose we'll paint these streets with blood the color of rust they're leaving us a trail of dust a fortune denied you're a victim if you don't decide this is the great divide
Track Name: Unleash The Beast
until the missiles come around the sound is still a sound and by routine a matador in strife so we grow in to our hearts or stand so far apart we sever destiny mid throw and the cons take all control where'd our sense of loving go? and world peace will only taste the apathy of our self-inflicted vices some lost and long forgotten all gone but not deceased, unleash the beast
Track Name: Let You Drown
let me down and maybe I'll let you drown we're watching side by side through someone else's eyes and it's all politics the smile and the frown they're sharpening the sticks and where you stab me is where I'll let you drown another plea no one get close to me you'll see they're like a manic upset machine damage in every zone with timing like a clone I'd rather die alone than watch you drowning sinking like a stone make me invisible the silence comes in waves of families in graves can you taste the poison now? the city let you drown
Track Name: Failure
an echo that satisfied the mass travels through a new compartment the architecture standing like a tomb cast another spell I'm open wide no terror in your life no terror in your eyes I want to hold you no failure in your life no failure in your eyes I want to hold you someone's on a power trip reaching out with nothing but revenge at a glance so full of innocence a soul irradiant with guilt
Track Name: Way You Smile
many nights I've spent assured I'll die alone so cold and hurt but with you I'm on a separate plane and my words have tried but can't explain the way you smile at me and though I long to hold your hand in my with hearts that broke but healed in time we kiss it makes me rise and fall but the thing I miss the most of all is the way you smile at me
Track Name: Tell A Lie
the dozenth row of lights aimed at crimson skies it doesn't make you shine the way that you intended it's nothing more than fiction an urge that never satisfies you're right who am I? do you cry each time you tell a lie? nervous ticks awry with every scripted line nature set aside no innocence just give me a reason and I can break the noise I stumble in pretense at your tone of voice it clutters every thought of mine each time you tell a lie
Track Name: Wreath Of Always
