Track Name: Where 2 Begin
Where do I begin
As our story unfolds
I shuffle my feet
Down the glorious road Above hell
And the freedom of walking to hell Don't know where it's going But I'm striding it well
Where do I begin Where do I begin
Twisting emotions and signs of denial Turn left for a feeling
And get burned by revival Clapping their hands
Heads toward empty skies Holding up the cornerstone Hurling at our empty lives
Oh, where do I begin Where do I begin
WhoamI WhoamI WhoamI Living to die, no
Smoke stacks zooming by my sneakers Should’ve of kept me on the bleachers Told me it's the steps of a dreamer Not the end of the line of achievers
I have hurt so many hurting Total disregard my wording Yet I can't look back
But the taste of salt's in everything And that's disturbing
Where do I begin Where do I begin
This jam is going nowhere Nobody's ever known
Right left
Or is it left right
Doesn't matter when I'm on my own Just start
Move on
Can't do it any better
Where do I begin Where do I begin
WhoamI WhoamI WhoamI Living to die, no WhoamI WhoamI WhoamI Living to die, no Living to die, no Living to die
Wait Stop Wait Stop
WhoamI WhoamI WhoamI WhoamI
Am I headed toward disaster Or marching for defeat Can't keep on living
If this is what I'll reap Questions give no answers And shouting sees no ears One foot in front of the other Straight into my fears
Where do I begin Where do I begin, no Where do I begin, huh Where do I begin
Track Name: Bittersweet
What a bride to take Void behind the vanity Considered all the pains And signed it in crimson In crimson
In crimson
In crimson
Choice is ours to make Double gilded edge Trapped to plotted fate Are we in over our heads
Bittersweet You are Bittersweet You are my child Bittersweet You are my child Bittersweet You are my child Bittersweet You are my child Bittersweet
We are so sanitized
No truth in a place of closing eyes Back at nothing more Life’s a million angels Falling from the sky
Life’s a million
Falling from the sky
You are my child Bittersweet You are my life Bittersweet You are my child Bittersweet You are my life Bittersweet
What a bride to take Void behind the vanity Considered all the pains And signed it in crimson
Track Name: Surrender (In the Dark)
There’s a hole In the ground Through the mist Of aching mind Can’t reach it There’s a heart Spilling blood Round the bend In blackened char Can’t stop it
Face me in the dark
This time you can not get away
Surrender
My love Won’t you surrender My love Won’t you
There’s the a wall Up a mountain Over icy sleet Can’t catch it There’s an edge Near a fault
In the passing Autumn breeze Can’t see it
Face me in the dark
This time you can not get away
Surrender
My love Won’t you surrender My love Won’t you
Surrender
My love Won’t you surrender My love Won’t you
Track Name: Tidal Waves
In the words
In the words I write Oh,I put up a fight In the time
In the time we design We’re frozen solid No time at all For being alive No tidal waves
Of joy
It’s keeping us Apart
It’s keeping us Apart Apart
Near the walls Near the walls we build A seed unfolds
In the hearts
In the hearts of our kind We put up a fight No time at all
For being alive
No tidal waves
Of joy
It’s keeping us Apart
It’s keeping us Apart
On the run
What we’re running from No one knows We’re on the run What we’re running from We can’t escape
At all
No time
At all
No time
At all
No time
At all
We’re running from
Track Name: Obscurus
Sexless Vacuous Godless Mysterious Noise
Hissing waves Absorb in skin Unrelenting
They quiet my tenderness A sensual sensation Broadcast over nations Color me impressed
I'm dripping with the sound of revulsion She reverberates the pangs in erosion We're distorted
And I don't see a reason
Bowing to speakers
We're dreaming for a silence to mute them You're dreaming for a silence to mute them I'm dreaming for a silence to mute them
Sexless Vacuous Godless Mysterious Noise
Give me a reason Give me a reason Give me a reason Give me a reason Give me a reason Give me a reason Give me a reason Give me a reason Give me a reason Give me a reason Give me a reason Give me a reason We're bowing to
Sexless Vacuous Godless Mysterious Noise
Track Name: Pandemonium at Genesis
I was screaming out of utero
A first born
Broken boy with a severed cord
I was born with my hand over ear, world Pandemonium at genesis Inculcating my veins with a deep red See it blue through these fractured lenses I was born with my hand over ear, world Pandemonium at genesis
If this is all we have We’re born into a trap Two faces of a coin Spinning in the air
I was screaming out of utero
A first born
Broken boy with a severed cord
I was born with my hand over ear, world Pandemonium at genesis Inculcating my veins with a deep red See it blue through these fractured lenses I was born with my hand over ear, world Pandemonium at genesis
If now is all we affirm We’re choking out our verve Two faces of a coin
In the back pocket
Pandemonium At genesis Pandemonium At genesis Why do we cry
If this is all there is Pandemonium
Track Name: Xerox
The answer escapes me
Was caught in the raid
They threw me onto the glass And repeatedly said 'Tomorrow is today is today is today'
Copy of a copy
Soul getting drained They said we are connected But my cloud just rains
Somewhere inside us A heart beats
A heart beats Inside Beating
A heart
Beats
Beating under radar Their search comes up null They can steal my grey matter And the thumping never dulls It's repeating what it knows
Retracing all the outlines It's sad to say Have to be reminded That we've got a face
Keep begging the question From plane to carbon plane Can we be that first light Again, again, again Again
Lie still in the black noise Nothing beneath my feet Louder than explosions We hear our heart Beat
Copy of a copy
Soul getting drained They said we were connected But my cloud just rains
Somewhere beyond hell Where two eyes meet Pounding from the inside
A heart beats A heart beats Inside Beating
A heart Beats
Track Name: We Are Alive
You fall down on your face Children stand in trouble 5,091 drops of rain Tired boots over rubble
I'm seeing in twos My dreams are bruised What we waiting for It's all a ruse
We are alive We are, we are And we are live We are
We are alive We are, we are And we are live
Sentiments locked in a vault Hands pull apart a flower
A woman syncopates a waltz Blood trickles towards a shadow Somewhere all the meaning Had a place
Acid under ceilings
Eats away the paint
We are alive We are, we are And we are live We are
Watching all the people who trip Crashing down many stairs Blood out from your lip
A baby takes its first step Shake the tiger's stripes
Check your vital signs
We are, they are, you are
I am livid under smiling pictures Screaming inside sing-song noise Baby let me have a kiss now Before the insects take your eyes apart And me
I thought this was the end
But no we are
Alive
We are alive
Track Name: Peace Flying Wild
Never needed it 'til I knew what it was Then I hid it from the cruelness of love Selfish but I am scared
Of what I'll lose
Stealing feelings and never known what I've done Screw reflection 'cause I don't really have one Throwing the weight of it off a tower
Rope dancing round my leg
Ready to fly again
I pray for this hope so fleeting How can I reach you?
For I've a burdened hand My name is, shout it before... Oh, why to forget you? Peace flying
Flying wild
Wild
Slamming doors cause I can't stand long goodbyes Though cutting this cord had once or twice crossed my mind You see I'm different now
But I'm not ready to share
Is this all I've got?
Throwing the weight of it off a tower
Rope dancing round my leg
I pray for this hope so fleeting How can I reach you?
For I've a burdened hand My name is, shout it before... Oh, why to forget you? Peace flying
Flying wild
Wild
Track Name: Smoke Screen
Progress They're selling me Progress
What is more
When they're nothing more What is more
When there's nothing What is more
When I'm nothing More
Smoke screen Down from on high Smoke screen Living in lies
What have we learned With the race to the sun Is that it burns
What is more
When they're nothing more What is more
When there's nothing What is more
When I'm nothing More
Smoke screen Down from on high Smoke screen Living in lies Smoke screen Down from on high Smoke screen Living in lies Smoke Screen Smoke Screen
Save me Save me Save me Save me
