Track Name: Fly Trap (Revisited)
Where did she go?
Curious
Would like to know
I wanna wander into the garden
Scared to believe this is it
Disappearing
I'm gonna wander into the garden
It pulls me in like a magnet
And I'll stay there forever
Here come the crows
Here come the flies
Track Name: Exile
I'm packing my things and fleeing
So freeing
Just shy of full being, I'm leaving
'Cuz there's an aching feeling
Restraints and I can't take this low ceiling

But I don't wanna stay away from here for too long
Everything I love I find a way to push away from me
I can't comprehend how everything went so wrong
Never meant to run away and leave to feeling so empty
Everything I hate finds a way to just devour me
I can't cope with this exile
I won't live in exile

It's been too long
The last day, the last day
I'm different, yet the same
And estranged

But I don't wanna stay away from here for too long
Everything I love I find a way to push away from me
I can't comprehend how everything went so wrong
Never meant to run away and leave to feeling so empty
Everything I hate finds a way to just devour me

I can't find hope in who I am
Who am I?

I don't wanna stay away from here for too long
Everything I love I find a way to push away from me
I can't comprehend how everything went so wrong
Never meant to run away and leave to feeling so empty
Everything I hate finds a way to just devour me
I can't cope with this exile

I don't wanna stay away
I don't wanna stay
Track Name: Redline
Cool for the while
Now the thought kicks in of how it all should be
Should be soon
But then, we were just here and so I ask
What is it if anything? What is it if anything?

Now you've gotta go and we know where

So start all your engines and rev them all up to the redline
Break all my bones just to set them aside
But pay close attention to the ones who will hide
Under your bed at night

Well here we are again and I've been ripped anew
Trigger happy ignition with endless fuel
Allow me to ask once more
What is it if anything?

Now you've gotta go and we know where

So start all your engines and rev them all up to the redline
Break all my bones just to set them aside
But pay close attention to the ones who will hide
Under your bed at night

Got it all started all over (repeat)

Start all your engines and rev them all up to the redline
Break all my bones just to set them aside
But pay close attention to the ones who will hide
Under your bed at night
Got it all started all over
To the ones who will hide
Under your bed at night
Got it all started all over
To the ones who will hide
Under your bed at night
Got it all started all over
To the ones who will hide
Track Name: Idiot
Been chewed up - I don't want your affection
I'm screwed up - I been down that hole before
I could've - made quite an impression
And I would've - made you need me more

And what if I thought of everything?
Then what good would you be to me
A boot around my flat tire
An albatross around my neck, making it hard to breathe

Caught myself off guard
The demands are stacking up
Now I'm out of time
And my load won't get lighter
So I smile and I nod
Make believe that I'm somewhere else
Anywhere but here

I been lied to - I can taste it in the air
You tried to - slip another one by me
I smiled when - I told you I didn't care
And you cried when - you told me 'how do you dare?'

And now that I fucked up everything
Wonder what tomorrow will bring
I'm gonna resent you in the end
I'm gonna bounce back when you break and I bend

Caught myself off guard
The demands are stacking up
Now I'm out of time
And my load won't get lighter
So I smile and I nod
Make believe that I'm somewhere else
Anywhere but here

(And what if I thought of everything?

Caught myself off guard

Make believe that I'm somewhere else
Anywhere but here
Track Name: Ready
Ready to keep them all on their feet
Ready to give them all a display
That's exactly what they came for
It's time to deal out the pain

Find home in the dirt
True names are forgotten
Grind them into earth
My conscience is rotten

Hero until misfortune takes over
Then an echo of an identity
It's time to deal out the pain

Find home in the dirt
True names are forgotten
Grind them into earth
My conscience is rotten

Ready to take them all over to the other side
And I'm ready for the dirt
Track Name: The Passing
Always
I'm ready
In a world that's broken
Oh yeah, I'm ready
Yeah yeah
Track Name: Understanding the Fade
I wanted to keep your eyes open, I wasn't there to hold you down
I wanted just to keep your eyes open
So you could see the waters of which you drown
It's not supposed to be like that for anyone

I won't tell you to understand
I did what I could, then we were faded
I hope you can understand that I never meant for us to be

Times have changed so much since then
But I know that we're still the same
Same pain, same fear, same skin with a new year
I hope you got out and you ran far
I know you wouldn't look back except to remember
The good times were gone, it was time to move on
We traded in June for December

I won't tell you to understand
I did what I could, then we were faded
They didn't understand, they did what they would
then we were faded
We need to understand, we did what we could
then we were faded
I hope you can understand that I never meant for us to be

I didn't mean to let go, but I was frightened by the undertow

I won't tell you to understand
I did what I could, then we were faded
They didn't understand, they did what they would
then we were faded
We need to understand that we did what we could
then we were faded
I hope you can understand that I never meant for us to be
Track Name: The Mess
She likes crying. He loves the game.
She’s always trying. He can’t complain

And they go on and on trying to let the other believe,
That they are keeping each other strong and there is nothing they need

All she wanted; someone to please
All he wants is a girl with good knees

And they carry on and on pretending that they are perfect for each other, when anyone else can clearly see they’re the opposite

So turn around, confess; see that you’ve left a mess
I know you’re mad, but I don’t deserve this

She only sees dollar signs in his eyes.
He only needs what she’s got between those thighs.

And they’ll never understand exactly what they do to each other
And everyone else will casually call them idiots

So turn around, confess; see that you’ve left a mess
I know you’re mad, but I don’t deserve this

So take your shit back and I’ll take mine
What’s the point in trying to make it right?
They’re more happy making up from a fight that sparked from someone’s careless comment.
Only hear what was said, never knowing what was meant

So turn around, confess; see that you’ve left a mess
I know you’re mad, but I don’t deserve this
Track Name: Death of Art
Wake up. Can’t we see what’s going on?
Numbness, the only feeling that is strong
Pills put the mood upon your face so dull the hurt maintain the pace
Pills put the mood upon your face so dull the hurt maintain the pace
Make-up and perfume to replace dumbness,
The common look upon our face

This feeling surrounds me that something was lost
I can see it now, we are birthing the death of art

Mourning for the future that’s without
Rotten are the seeds that we are planting now
You'll see our dreams disappear in the distance
You're all shells of our ideal existence now you’ll maintain the pace
You're all shells of our ideal existence now you’ll maintain the pace

This feeling surrounds me that something was lost
I can see it now, we are birthing the death of art

This feeling surrounds me that something was lost
I can see it now, we are birthing the death of art

Pills put the mood upon our face so dumb,
Now we maintain the pace
Pills put the mood upon our face so dumb,
Now we maintain the pace
Track Name: Facade
Hide behind your smile like you love it, and it loves you
But all the long while you are tearing yourself apart too

But the mask you wear goes skin deep
How I’d love to tear it off your face
(your face)

Speak to me so carelessly as quasi-sunshine gleams from your eyes
I can’t hear a word you say
They’re so full of shit and I hate you

But the mask you wear goes skin deep
How I’d love to tear it off your face

I’d like to be as happy as you seem

But the mask you wear goes skin deep
How I’d love to tear it off your face
But the mask you wear goes skin deep
How I’d love to tear it off your face
Track Name: Pretty No More
So gorgeous, so what?
So much of life is

I never told you that I’d ever want to be your knight in shining fucking armor, ‘cuz then it would’ve been a lie, a lie
I knew better than to tell you every little thing you really wanted to hear
I’d be dragging down your life, your life

So pretty no more
So much of the world is…
If I were to crack your shell
Then all the crap that you are inside
Would seep out of your hell
Then you’d be exposed

I never told you that I’d ever want to be your knight in shining fucking armor, ‘cuz then it would’ve been a lie, a lie
I knew better than to tell you every little thing you really wanted to hear
I’d be dragging down your life, your life
But give me credit babe, at least I made a fine attempt to get to know ya better and I guess I didn’t do it right, do it right.
So don’t let me keep you away from that pile of insignificant shit you call your life

If I were to crush your shell
then all the crap that you are inside
Would seep out of your hell
Then you’d be exposed

I never told you that I’d ever want to be your knight in shining fucking armor, ‘cuz then it would’ve been a lie, a lie
I knew better than to tell you every little thing you really wanted to hear
I’d be dragging down your life, your life
But give me credit babe, at least I made a fine attempt to get to know ya better and I guess I didn’t do it right, do it right.
So don’t let me keep you away from that pile of insignificant shit you call your life

Pretty no more
Pretty no more
Pretty no more
Pretty no more
Track Name: Paradise
They will ask for favors
Could run could hide
When delivered they will not even ask your name
Blood in their eyes, dirt on your hands
Once they’re all gone you will never know their names

Hate spreads and hate spreads so…
Let’s kill everyone
Let’s be done
We’re all the same now that we’re all gone

What’s the difference?
Everyone’s got their cause
Everyone’s got their own god
Guess we are all flawed

Hate spreads and hate spreads so…
Let’s kill everyone
Let’s be done
We’re all the same now that we’re all gone

Blood on our hands
And our leaders are wise
Once we’re all dead
Paradise

Hate spreads and hate spreads so…
Let’s kill everyone
Let’s be done
We’re all the same now that we’re all gone
Why not kill everyone?
What’s so wrong
Finally the same
Finally we’re all gone

This is paradise when we’re all gone
Track Name: The Garden
Drawn in like a magnet (Drawn)
Pulled out by the force
Afraid to believe that “this” is it

‘Cause you ain’t gonna believe this

Drawn in like a magnet (Drawn)
Pulled out by the force
Living in disguise
Disappear

‘Cause you ain’t gonna believe this.

Damn her to the garden
For all eternity
Track Name: Collapsed
Take another pill
No

Climbing to the highest peak
Wondering when it’s all over
What they will say
What they will say
Denying rumors of casualties
Driving force behind enemy gates
Falter at your own despair

Try to read between the lies
‘Cause it’s your neck if you don’t
Try to learn from these mistakes
You’ll never fix what you’ve broke

Filter through the education, learned so much
Why wonder what went wrong?
You cannot take it back
Live for today not tomorrow
Try to learn from these mistakes
Never underestimate the weaker ones
Power lies deep in their veins

And without instinct, self torment begins
Before you know it’s too late
Presume the innocence

Take another pill collapse in the end
Take another pill collapse in the end
Take another pill collapse in the end
Take another pill collapse

Try to read between the lies
‘Cause it’s your neck if you don’t
Try to learn from these mistakes
You’ll never fix what you’ve broke

Filter through the education, learned so much
Why wonder what went wrong?
You cannot take it back
Live for today not tomorrow
Try to learn from these mistakes
Never underestimate the weaker ones
Power lies deep in their veins
Track Name: Simple
Rage in your life all the time
Everyday… (thinking to yourself again)
The creep in my life… (Who is the one you mention?)
The one I call “Me”… (The stranger inside)
Anger and pride… (Yeah)
Anger and pride

All bent in my head
God I wish I was simple inside
Simple inside
I’m asking for too much
Everyone’s out of touch with the “real” in my life
With the “Real”

Hard to smile… (What is it this time?)
It’s as if I feel… (Here you go again)
Nothing will change… (Least of all you)
Least of all me… (That’s what I said!)

All bent in my head
God I wish I was simple inside
Simple inside
I’m asking for too much
Everyone’s out of touch with the “real” in my life
With the “Real”

All bent in my head
God I wish I was simple inside
Simple inside
I’m asking for too much
Everyone’s out of touch with the “real” in my life
With the “Real”
Track Name: Lemon Cake
Lemon Cake
Lemon Cake

Why try to change your perspective, when your suit fits you perfectly?
Why walk away from something that you worked so hard for?
Why cave in when fair is fair? Even at your own expense…
If the table never turns, would it always feel the same?

Sometimes it’s not about you
Sometimes it’s not about you

Nobody owes you anything
You’ve got what you bring
Nobody cares to hear your song
Not even to sing along

Sometimes it’s not about you
Sometimes it’s not about you
Lemon Cake
Lemon Cake
Sometimes it’s not about you
Sometimes it’s not about you
Sometimes it’s not about you
Sometimes it’s not about you
Track Name: Surface
Barrel deep into core
Leaving no trace of high ground
What determines this will?
Will it be forever?
Surface again
I only see things one way

Flip the switch
Play that fool’s game
Pull the cord
Surface again
Surface again
Surface again

Never cared, the other
Finding wrong, everything
Surface again

Flip the switch
Play that fool’s game
Pull the cord
Surface again

Barrel deep into core
Leaving no trace of high ground
What determines this will?
Will it be forever?
Or never be found…
Surface

Flip the switch
Play that fool’s game
Pull the cord
Surface again
Flip the switch
Play that fool’s game
Pull the cord
Surface again
Flip the switch
Play that fool’s game
Pull the cord
Surface again
Surface again
Surface again
Surface again
Track Name: The Lesson
Dirty thing! (na na na na na na na na)
I’ll teach ya to misbehave!
Dirty thing! (na na na na na na na na)
I’ll lock you up in a cage

With plenty of things to keep you company as they watch and crawl on you
You won’t tell no one, ‘cause you can’t tell no one
Dirty thing
I’ll teach ya to misbehave

Mama keeps me in the kennel
Mama keeps me in the kennel
Mama keeps me in the kennel
Mama keeps me in the kennel

Dirty cage! (na na na na na na na na)
I wonder where she keeps the key
Dirty cage! (na na na na na na na na)
This’ll make a hard life for me

With plenty of things to keep me company as they watch and crawl on me
I won’t tell no one, ‘cause I can’t tell no one
Dirty cage
This’ll make a hard life for me

Mama keeps me in the kennel
Mama keeps me in the kennel
Mama keeps me in the kennel
Mama keeps me in the kennel

Spider and roach
One of these days one of these days I’m gonna get out of here
Scudageira and worm
One of these weeks one of these weeks I’m gonna get out of here

Mama keeps me in the kennel
Mama keeps me in the kennel
Mama keeps me in the kennel (Ma ya taught me to misbehave)
Mama keeps me in the kennel (Ma ya taught me to misbehave)
Mama keeps me in the kennel (Ma ya taught me to misbehave)
Mama keeps me in the kennel
Ma ya taught me to misbehaver right
Right?
Track Name: Carry
Spinning and bleeding through this precarious illusion
When I shut my windows to the world I feel alien
I take a breath just to re-assess where exactly I stand
Right here
Or do I?
Guess I’ll never know

Lifted and free of everything that was over me
Spinning completely as I’m haunted by the natural laws
Lost in a perpetuating dreamscape random cycle of time
And I can’t seem to figure it out while we all drift away

Goddamn never felt so gutted
Draining and collecting inside a foreign vessel
That’s ok I wouldn’t have it any other way
Everything is in it’s place
Go ahead and take it away
Bring me around to any other place
Soon enough we’ll all come back around
And I’ll be me all over
That’s all I’ll ever know.

Lifted and free of everything that was over me
Spinning completely as I’m haunted by the natural laws
Lost in a perpetuating dreamscape random cycle of time
And I can’t seem to figure it out while we all drift away

I realize it’s all the same for all of us and none of us
I realize we’re all the same
For anyone to find someone, they must first find themselves

Lifted and free of everything that was over me
Spinning completely as I’m haunted by the natural laws
Lost in a perpetuating dreamscape random cycle of time
And I can’t seem to figure it out (figure it out)
Lifted and free of anything under me
Spinning completely
Screaming put me down
Down.
Track Name: Spun
So fragile the balance in all of our lives
No matter the road, it leads to demise
Our passion sustains us at least for today

I try to suppress them; these thoughts of remorse
How spun we have become; so far from our course

We struggle to understand the reason we’re here
With no proper guidance no wonder there’s fear
Then passion betrays at least for today

I try to suppress them; these thoughts of remorse
How spun we have become; so far from our course

I try to suppress them; these thoughts of remorse
How spun we have become; so far from our course
Track Name: Ruin
Say it! “The end will come”
And you’ll see that it’s done
Pray it! Your need for “the one” will make him and shape him

What makes us feel this way?
Do these feelings have to be explained?
What makes us be this way?

Spare me
We’ll never know just what it’s like to be one another
“Brother”, I feel the same as you
And I got a belief

What makes us feel this way?
Do these feelings have to be explained?
What makes us be this way?

Pray it
Make it
Break it

And why don’t I feel the same?
What makes us feel this way?
Do these feelings have to be explained?
What makes us be this way?
What makes us feel this way?
Do these feelings have to be explained?
What makes us be this way?
Track Name: Kidja
Whadja do buddy me?
My how you scurry around so frantically
Your mouth is full and cannot speak
Now you’re swimming in your own bed of sweat
You can’t spit
You can’t dry your naked and vulnerable body

You didn’t wanted wutcha started didja, huh?
You didn’t wanted wutcha started didja, huh?
You didn’t wanted wutcha started now yer runnin’ around witcho head off, don’t kidja
You didn’t wanted wutcha started didja, huh?
You didn’t wanted wutcha started didja, huh?
You didn’t wanted wutcha started now yer runnin’ around witcho head off, don’t kidja
Head off kid
Head off kid
yeah, head off

Whadja say buddy me?
You need help that’s fine, but try to think next time
‘Cause I’m always chasing my stubborn goals
And I pay no mind to who I crush along the way
I can’t spit
I can’t dry my naked and vulnerable body

You didn’t wanted wutcha started didja, huh?
You didn’t wanted wutcha started didja, huh?
You didn’t wanted wutcha started now yer runnin’ around witcho head off, don’t kidja
You didn’t wanted wutcha started didja, huh?
You didn’t wanted wutcha started didja, huh?
You didn’t wanted wutcha started now yer runnin’ around witcho head off, don’t kidja
Head off kid
Head off kid
yeah, head off

I hate to think that you could depend on me for your welfare
Why does it always come to this?
You put me on the spot and it’s not fair

I guess I wanted it all
I just wanted it all
I guess I wanted it all
Hell, I needed it
I hate to think that you are using me to you advantage
All the more that time goes by; the more I wonder if you are demented
I hate to think that you’re smarter than this
...that you can understand this
If it’s true, then fuck you and I’m out
It’ll never end up like you planned it
I guess I wanted it all
I just wanted it all
I guess I wanted it all
Hell, I needed it

You didn’t wanted wutcha started didja, huh?
You didn’t wanted wutcha started didja, huh?
You didn’t wanted wutcha started now yer runnin’ around witcho head off, don’t kidja
You didn’t wanted wutcha started didja, huh?
You didn’t wanted wutcha started didja, huh?
You didn’t wanted wutcha started now yer runnin’ around witcho head off

Don’t kidja
Don’t kidja
Don’t kidja
Don’t kidja
Track Name: Acid Rain
Feeling too much pressure to perform, to conform
Fucked and overwhelmed
Overcome by the traditions and obligations
I’m submerged and cannot swim
Sinking and drowning in a lake of acid rain

Sinking and drowning
Sinking and drowning

Something big and nasty stares and waits for us all
Most are not so kind
So I laugh at all of the trivial trite customs to which we adhere
Nothing makes much sense when dealing with the minds of men
Track Name: Some Big Nasty
Touch need destroy flames torch burn fire fear
Touch need destroy flames torch burn fire fear
Touch need destroy flames torch burn fire fear
Touch need destroy flames torch burn fire fear

Devil laughing at me
Taunts me in his world
Devil laughing at me
Taunts me in his world

Some big nasty come ‘round
Some big nasty come ‘round
Some big nasty come ‘round
Some big nasty come ‘round

Touch need destroy flames torch burn fire fear
Touch need destroy flames torch burn fire fear
Touch need destroy flames torch burn fire fear
Touch need destroy flames torch burn fire fear
