Track Name: Featherweight
Rain falling down on a sweat stain
Motivation moves like a freight train
It's like a ticking bomb
It's like a ticking bomb that you want to shut off
But which wire to cut will make it stop

As he's taping up his hands
Duck swing jab and miss
Keep it clean all is seen
From here and here and between
Track Name: Call It Shotgun
Drill it into my head
Some words better left unsaid
I might as well be dead
Than bother buying what you sale

Push the pedal to the floorboard
Drive it like you stole it
Get inside or get out of the way
This mission can't be aborted
Why try to avoid it
You're gonna crash and burn anyway

Good thing we didn't stick around
Now look at what the fuck we found

Push the pedal to the floorboard
Drive it like you stole it
Get inside or get out of the way
This mission can't be aborted
Why try to avoid it
You're gonna crash and burn anyway
Track Name: Costume Shop
Find a way to makes the more
Meaningful and from the soul
None of you can understand our side of life

Lock the door
Don't lose the key
It's where we keep our sanity

Come inside and let us set you free
Take your time cause we don't mind
Fulfilling curiosity

Find the right words to say
To define what you can't relay
Track Name: We Aim to Please
Raise your hand when you're trying to speak to me
Haven't you ever addressed authority
If not you're going to find out the hard way

Take it away now that you have to floor
Be afraid to repeat what you said before
Say it louder because I didn't catch that

STOP
What you're doing
YOU
Can't undo this
WE
know what's best

Alright okay if you insist
Let's take a quick look at my hit list
I'm narcissistic and ambitious
I'm not afraid to flip some switches

Now that you can't see anything
I'm not your average human being
I'll take my final swing
Did you catch that?

STOP
What you're doing
YOU
Can't undo this
WE
know what's best
Track Name: Bull and the Matador
Tie me up
Take me down
It's the same routine

Chew me up
Spit me out
Like nothing you've ever seen

Throw roses at my foe
Each pedal takes its toll
Into this world I'm born
Forever cursed by this proverbial thorn

All I hear are sneers and the jeers of the audience inside my head
Now he's standing right in front of me but all I see is red

As he takes his bow
With this cursed I'm endowed
I slam my foot into the ground
Take charge now that he's turned around

All I hear are sneers and the jeers of the audience inside my head
Now he's standing right in front of me but all I see is red
Track Name: Falling Man
Across the sky
The silent winds at my sides
Falling down is taking flight

But all I see
Are satellites and mysteries
Suspended in trascendencies

Take a moment
Feel the air
Let go

Kiss the stars goodbye
Disguised under the street lights
They're covered up like well told lies

I see you there
wrapped up in the atmosphere
Oh how time is so unfair

Take a moment
Feel the air
Let go
Track Name: Vigilante
Can't slow down
Can't catch my breath
There's nothing to lose
Until nothing's left

I'm running for my life
So you better think twice
Even if fighting with fire
Seems like the only way to strike

I'm high tailing
Rebelling
The world's not giving back so I'll sell it
To you to you today today
Take more than you need it's the American way

Lead us not into temptation

So called protectors
Paid by investors
Beat you to the ground
For a bull shit confession

Don't question aggression
Lined up to the next one
Look down for a second
And you might end up in handcuffs

You see that's the way they play the game
Stash it in your house and you're the one that they blame
Change your name and put it in as a number
But nothing's really changed except the roof that you're under

Lead us not into temptation

Lead us not into temptation
Be above the situation
Track Name: Project Pliocine
I've been stuck here for days
Duplicating DNA
My tired eyes for sleep are calling
Because when you hit the ground running
They'll never see it coming

I"m gonna give you life
I'm gonna set you free
I'm gonna lift you up
For the whole world to see
A race a stare
That seems to linger
Tusks curl like arthritis ridden fingers
They'll shake you to the bone
That's when I take control
Track Name: Patient 237
The man walks up to the desk and writes his name on the list
He takes his number and anxiously crumbles it in his fist
He turns his head and locks eyes with a lady being taken away
And as she's pulled through the door fingernails on the floor
This is what she says

"..."
There's no one left
I guess I'm next
The next in line
I'm not ready to die

The door creaks open and smooth blue and stretches out
Like a vultures wing
His noose of a grip pulls me close as he tells me
You won't feel a thing
He straps me to a sticky chair and ties the mask
Around my face
And as my breathing gets deeper and deeper
I slowly start to drift away
Track Name: Dragon's Arm
Let us set sail on a journey far away
Where the sun sets down and the night comes on out to play
Painting pictures connecting stars up in the sky
And start over again when the clouds pass us up on by

I've never seen anything quite like this
Just move your mind over and let your soul kick in
Let's close our eyes and breathe it all in
Once you inhale just let your body descend

Help me I'm losing control and I'm falling apart at the seems
Please just wait leave me right here I'm happier than I'll ever be

Let us go dive into the oceans of the night
Where we can see the bottom but the water just feels so right
What's that you say you never learned to swim
Well take my hand count to three then we will jump right in

I've never felt anything quite like this
The water gets hotter the further down you swim
You'll feel so numb to every burning itch
I'll be your cure if you'll be my fix

Help me I'm losing control and I'm falling apart at the seams
Please just wait leave me right here I'm happier than I'll ever be
