Track Name: Tint of Red
I push you to the end
of the universe you own
I wave my arms at you
so you notice what I am
The struggle to impress you
only gets me so far in
The face you wear is many
today's is never true

When the trigger’s pulled you aim
But my eyes don't see the blame
Wait for days to see the wound
But your hands are pushing down on me

You leave me with no choice
but to turn and walk away
My shadow is what I follow
into a place with no return
A tint of red takes over
And there's nothing left to prove
Time stands still, flips over
and returns it back at you
Track Name: By the Hour
I’m awakend by the buzzing sound
Another day that's up and left to die
There's no option to runaway and hide

But for the moment that you have us now
We couldn't care less of what you need
Time approaches that final moment
So grab your things up and let's go

Put your fist up They don't own us
Life's stolen by the hour
When the sun hides so nothing matters
Our glass is high into the sky

With the string that's tied behind our backs
We want some freedom to lift our head and breathe
Only to drag us down when were in need
Track Name: Dizzy Spell
A hunger for a thirst as we pull all the shades down
The room heats up while space runs out
We're here to throw it down
Just leave your story at the door
To bottoms up and hit the floor

And the nights are time to play
We carry on with one intent
A dizzy spell is what we get
And we'll do it all again
To piss away the days

Sun rises againas our heads are beaten down
Memories are gone and lost
And you're nowhere to be found
Where did our trip take us last night?
Together proves we did it right!
Track Name: Scabbed Over
Trouble at the end
These distances are suffocating
Isolating
The circumstances lend to no one thinking clearly
And wondering what could be

A puzzle to be solved
A vision that wont fade away
And these Scabbed over wounds are screaming
But I don't think it's right
And I know you're unprepared
To take on this one

I wonder if it's worth my time
You lost it
And I dont think its fair
You're so unaware
The distances between; differences aside
We're straddling the fences
Taking bullets from both sides

You lost it
I can't help you find it
After all the time we lost
There wont be a next time
Track Name: Robotic
Breathe through staled cigarettes
A fifth down makes the night taste bitter right
Prying open doors to ends not stamped upon my head I hurt to forget the lie
I’d kill to open all the books
Strength crowned in lockdown
Confronting
The story's never found

We're all just human Just walking dead

Robotic in the grid I'm claustrophobic
All boxed in
Grappling through the levels of bullshit that limit humble men
In suit and tie
I can't think right can't sleep at night I swear
If we mechanize real sin
The same are gonna win

Born in black and white
Somehow the green defines our ends
Space is getting thin
Language choked by those that claim your skin
Sterile and paralyzed Apathetics are bred from within Now drink my potion right
For a night let chaotic impulse win

Just human

I've lived much too long buried So far down
This miming tires chaotic minds
The wired responses can only break So far down
Every person can detonate
The charges filled with hate
Track Name: No Way Out
I stand with knuckles clinched
With nothing I can say
Visions turning red
And I'm left no room to speak
But every time you come around
The silence is what you want from me

And everything goes up in flames
You beat me down And nothing stays the same
My muted mouth Speaks for itself
And my revenge Is taking aim at you

But I don't want to be the one that's left
The tug and pull of my misery and pain
A sacrifice that regret won't understand

And there’s no way out

No way out with blood left on my hands
The riot in my head
Closed off by my lips
Dirt an blood cover my hands
And I owe that all to you
I stick around to try again
But I know where that will end
Track Name: Falling Forward
Onward and we roll
Another fires left its coals
Another path diverts directing me
A change in destiny
So many years to go
So many pages to unfold
So many lessons to be taught to me
By a change in destiny

And things aren't always better than they seem
But it's fair enough to say that choosing any road leads the same way
Falling forward

Things aren't always better than they seem

Impossible to know
How many times we’ll have to go
navigate the dark just look both ways
And recognize the maze

Fire changing destiny
Track Name: Hips vs Hardwood
We filled the tank with what we found
Underneath the seats
We proved an inconvenience at the bar
People had to raise their voices just so they'd be heard While two raving strung out junkies in the corner shouted more

This is how I'm spending all my time
Hips and hardwood floors don't get along
Just ask my spine
A glorified rehearsal
Is just one point of concern after all
It's an 18 hour ride
Your turn to drive

I'm sleep deprived a cancelled show
The second one this week
I think the right rear tire is gonna blow
It's sad to say it wouldn't be the first time on this trip I'm naked riding shotgun
White knuckle clinched were hanging on

But I've seen a lot of places and things I know
Track Name: So Much for Having a Plan
Between emotions of fear and of anger
And a little like a fist has been let loose upon my guts
The weapons are selected
The venue's been chosen
And it wouldn't be so bad
If time was all we had

If time was all we had
So much for having a plan

I have no patience for quantification
Or reconstruction if I’m then gonna get thrown up against the wall
In this new beginning you promise was the end
And it wouldn't be so bad
If time was all we had

So much for mistakes
So much for having a plan
So why the long face
If its all the same in the end
It's hard to pretend
That nothing will ever change

In the end did it break us
In then end did we save it all?
Track Name: Disconnected
You don't know a thing about me
Is there something that you should know?
I can tell you what you want to hear
Let you inhibitions just go
No you don't know what you will give up
You don't know what you want
It may take you years to find out

You don't know what you need
It's something that may never come to you
Trust is something that comes easy
When you've never been a victim
Lies and promises and words are said
It's your decision to accept them
Track Name: Robotic [clean version]
Breathe through staled cigarettes
A fifth down makes the night taste bitter right
Prying open doors to ends not stamped upon my head
I hurt to forget the lie
I’d kill to open all the books
Strength crowned in lockdown
Confronting
The story's never found

We're all just human Just walking dead

Robotic in the grid I'm claustrophobic
All boxed in
Grappling through the levels of bull that limit humble men
In suit and tie
I can't think right can't sleep at night I swear
If we mechanize real sin
The same are gonna win
Born in black and white
Somehow the green defines our ends
Space is getting thin
Language choked by those that claim your skin
Sterile and paralyzed
Apathetics are bred from within
Now drink my potion right
For a night let chaotic impulse win

Just human

I've lived much too long buried
So far down
This miming tires chaotic minds
The wired responses can only break
So far down
Every person can detonate
The charges filled with hate
