Track Name: One Little Lie
Watch your tongue
Make it go away
Start to peel
Make it go away

In your heart there’s a ghost
Someone out of control
Out of sight

Old day
Setting sun
Behind me
Everything’s
Done here
Everything
But one

One little lie
One breathless sigh
One
One

All your fears
Bursting from the inside
Hollowing
Stealing day and night

In your heart there’s a ghost
Someone keeping control
Out of sight

Old day
Setting sun
Behind me
Everything’s
Done here
Everything
But one

One little lie
One breathless sigh
One
One
Track Name: Digital Paranoia
Where I’m from
It’s a schemer’s dream
There are one hundred ways to bleed
Inside Digital paranoia

Where I live
Outside of certainty
Never thought that it would get to me
This life in
Digital paranoia

The world is standing here
I am spinning round
The truth is nothing real
In

Digital paranoia
Everyone wants a stage
Digital paranoia
No one gets away

Live the life
In a spinning wheel
Keep on going
No big deal
Spin ‘til you die
In digital paranoia

Live the life
A background blur
The colors fill a void
As your brain unfurls
Inside
Digital paranoia

The world is standing here
I am spinning round
The truth is nothing real
In

Digital paranoia
Everyone wants a stage
Digital paranoia
No one gets away

Wait for me now
I’m telling you
Don’t Wait for me now
Track Name: Trap Door (Heartless)
In your mind
There sits a door
A perfect life
From where you are
But step inside
And you will feel no more

Turn the knob
A gleam of light
It couldn’t hurt
But soon your life
Will be absorbed
Into a system of fools

You fell into a world
Where the lies you say
Get you through the day
You fell into a universe
Where the hate you keep
Gets you through the week

You are heartless
To yourself
You’re heartless
There is no one left
You’re heartless
To yourself
You’re heartless
There is no one left
Beyond that door

A Billion faces
Stretch along
This lonely place
A pitch-black dawn
You’ve fallen into the system

Here you stand
A place in line
A mangled clone
A broken spine
A nameless face
It’s everything you wanted

You fell into a world
Where the lies you say
Get you through the day
You fell into a universe
Where the hate you keep
Gets you through the week

Look into
The sky
That door
Is locking tight
Just out of reach
Track Name: Human Dominoes
Feel it start to break
On the horizon
A host of many plagues
Feel it start to shake
The ground is going over
Disturbing your peace / pace

Slow down

You know they’re
Coming down the hall
You hear them
Crushing through your door
You know that
You’re the next to take the fall
Tumble over
Human dominoes
Human dominoes

Feel it round the globe
It’s easier to give in
Than to stand alone
Feel it round the bow
The chain is infinite
There’s nowhere left to go

Slow down

You know they’re
Coming down the hall
You hear them
Crushing through your door
You know that
You’re the next to take the fall
Tumble over
Human dominoes
Human dominoes

Over the ages
They’ve fallen
Around us
Over the ages
They’ve knocked down
The fearless
Fall down
Give in
Matter of time
No choice
A part of
The noise

You know they’re
Coming down the hall
You hear them
Human dominoes
You know they’re
Coming down the halls
You hear them
Crushing through your door
You know that
You’re the next to take the fall
Tumble over
Human dominoes
Human dominoes
Human dominoes
Track Name: Broken Simulations
The future is looking bleak
They have gained control
You are not unique
Another line of code
Keep your head down low
So that no one knows your face
No one knows you at all

Broken simulations
Alone
In a search for truth
Broken simulations
Wandering
In unending blues

You’re erased

The future is looking grey
They tell you to ignore
The wordless poetry
Flowing through the water
You’re a fighter with no war
The hunter becomes prey
In these twisting cords

Broken simulations
Alone
In a search for truth
Broken simulations
Wandering
In unending blues

You’re erased
Track Name: Undress
They’re only dreams in the sky
They’re only tears streaming down your eyes
There’s a person on the inside
I will find
You

Some how
Someday
I will find you

Girl
Watch you undress
My heart
Girl
Watch you undress
My soul

New horizons
Run away with you
Turn our backs now
Start it all in truth
They’ll never stop us
Cause they can’t have
What we have

Some how
Someday
I will find you
I will find you

Girl
Watch you undress
My heart
Girl
Watch you undress
My soul

They’re only tears in the sky
They’re only dreams streaming down your eyes
There’s a person on the inside
I will find
You

Girl
Watch you undress
My heart
Girl
Watch you undress
My soul
Track Name: Sea of Fire
Dangerous
Dangerous
To live outside
Of the guiding light
No we don’t
Know where to go
Now that we aren’t
The ones in control

And oh we get scared
Oh come unprepared
And oh we get tired
But we’ll pass through
The sea of fire

Perilous
Perilous
The truth can wane
A runaway train
The road it winds
Not like we thought
Some peace of mind
Is all that we want

And oh we get scared
Oh come unprepared
And oh we get tired
But we’ll pass through
The sea of fire
Track Name: Walk with Lions
Just when they have you
In the shadows’ gloom
Stolen voices
Nothing but doom
Crawling ain’t easy
But it’s not the tune
In your head

Tonight
It’s all right
Cause we walk with lions
Tonight

From under the floor
The terror rises strong
Nothing is safe
A murderous throng
Stalling ain’t an option
But it’s not the song
In your head

Tonight
It’s all right
Cause we walk with lions
Tonight
Track Name: Good Morning Sun
Everything is redrawn
The pains of yesterday
They have all but gone away
Everything is reborn
Now just let it go
Go

Morning sun
Your rays move through the dawn
Warming glow
Wherever you go

Good morning sun
Good morning sun
Good morning
Good morning sun
Good morning sun
No mourning

All we are is restored
Move through space and time
You and I
All we are is renewed
Run inside the waves
And all of its grace

Morning sun
Your rays punch through the dawn
Warming glow
Right there in your soul

Good morning sun
Good morning sun
Good morning
Good morning sun
Good morning sun
No mourning

I believe in
