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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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
