Track Name: Outside the lines
I feel the energy
Its so alive now
The rest is a memory
That keeps letting me down
I'll burn all this shit to the ground
I'll turn my back and run away
My time has come

Here's to the fire that raises the dead
Let's kill the liar that lives in my head
Strange desires
A clever design
Taking me outside the lines

I see the enemy
The eternalized stare
Under the canopy
Passing me by
Where I burned all this shit to the ground
I'll turn my back and run away
Track Name: Do It Again
I'm sorry
You caught me
Apologize for all that I've done
Reduce me
And strip me
Humiliation
A form of fun

I'm just a falling star
And that's the way I am

As long as this world's turning
I'll do it again
As long as hell keeps burning
I'll do it again
From lessons I'm not learning
I'll do it again
I won't say no
I just need it

What you see
What you get
Bad habits lost
But not forsaken
Strong urges
Controlling
Devouring
All you tried to show me

I'm just a falling star
And that's the way I am...

When push comes to shove
Where ya gonna go
When push comes to shove
This is how it goes
When push comes to shove
Where ya gonna go
When push comes to shove
Now they gonna know

I’m an animal
Living like I have it all
Rabid
Like a lion in the bush
I can take it all
Trust I ain’t scared at all
Haters I just shake em off
Any motherfucker point a finger
I’ma break it off
Track Name: Echoes
I don’t feel so lonely
Handprints on the mirrors
I watch the flock march outside
But I can’t identify
Oh man
I wonder if you’ll ever understand
We’re so much more

Everybody looks the same
Dressed in flesh that we’ve all borrowed
Everyone has gone insane
Maybe why we feel so hollow
Get me off this speeding train
Take me down the road less followed
Free myself from fear and pain
Living like there’s no tomorrow

Do you know what you’re looking for?
Are we on the same accord?
Can you see like I do?
Because I can look right through you
All this bending
When will it break
And all the bullshit
The posturing
The same mistakes
The masks we make
To help us feel safe
It’s all so fucking fake
But I am not alone
Just need a show of hands

Silence all over again
We make violence our only friend
It’s just silence all over again
We lay peacefully sober
In awe, living in my head
It’s alright
To feel unsure
Track Name: Strength in numbers
We fall like dominoes
At the feet of the crowned
We may have lost our way
But the time to change is now
Divided we will fall
Together face them all
United
We will see who you believe in

Choose your leaders
Then just bend over
Hear our voice now
Strength in numbers
Scream your lungs out if you feel the same way
Hear our voice now
Strength in numbers
We belong

No sense of unity
Can you hear the battle call?
It's time to know yourself
'Cause your back's against the wall
Divided we will fall
Together face them all
United
We will see who you're believing

I'm calling out to you
Sending out an SOS
To anyone at all

We belong
Track Name: Where do we go
Feeling ripe
Feeling like
There's ten toes across the line
Shove me forward
Set the fire
Cursed with want
Immersed in desire
Archaic is the man
When the cold wind blows

Where do we go from here
The choice we make
Is it love or fear
Where do we go from here
The best of us has disappeared

Feels so right
Feeling like
I could fall to the knees of the siren
A moment's reward
A lifetime of why
Cursed with want
Immersed in desire
Archaic is the man
When the cold wind blows

Lying here awake
I can't be alone
Lying here awake
Please take me home
Track Name: The Recreant
Hiding behind your metaphors
Your words
So few when spoken
So many when sung
The Coward
Your feet,
The thief that steals your eyes
Your true intentions compromised
Your hands sleep in deep pockets
And your tongue trips you when talking
Its the peace within that you can't find
You're so alone
Well so am I

You're so alone
Devil will bow
I'm parallel to the floor
Chewing through the ceiling

Death to the recreant
The stage keeps stroking the ego
What is this
But a false sense of confidence
Sell your soul
To be well-known
What is worth this heart of stone?
Where is the love, my [home]...

You're so alone
Devil will bow
I'm parallel to the floor
Chewing through the ceiling
I'm so alone
If there's a God
Where is she now?
What type of deity abandons thee?

It's all cyclical
These vehicles
Don't you know they're just for show?
Show me the way home
It's all cyclical
These vehicles
A way for us to come and go
Go back Home
Track Name: Love Kills
Aboard the mothership
Strange flannel decor
Complimenting their four eyes
Chris Cornell bobbleheads
They line the dashboard
Why is everybody looking at me?

When the wormhole takes you through
You'll meet the chosen one
Save him from the lying Love
We'll bring you both back alive

Lying
Face down on the floor
Still breathing
No blood on the living room carpet
The footsteps above me
Tell me that there's someone else
In this house
Stay down
I said to Kurt
I'll get this bitch
But first, could you sign this quick for my kid sis?
Now play dead
Cause I see Courtney
Walking down the stairs
With a shotgun

Back on the mothership
Layne Staley murals
Scattered throughout the cargo bay
Arriving solo
Grey points his finger
Why is everybody looking at me?

When the wormhole took you through
You met the chosen one
Now explain just how you failed
To bring the King back alive
Track Name: The Awakening
The great shift cometh
Some are left behind
Work our way inside
And leave the pretense to die
Bright and shiny objects
Make single-file lines
Do you even know
What it's like to be alive?

Shades of indigo descend
Down the rabbit hole again

Old two eyes
You're so damn hip
Buy what's advertised
More useless shit
All you see is coal
Never what's inside it

Loosen up your grip
On culture, faith, and pride
Don't buy in
Don't sell out
Read between the headlines
Fear is the cancer
Just stare into the sky
Did we all forget
What it's like to be alive?

Oh Gaia
Lend these fools your sight
Be free again
No Sell
No Buy
Meanwhile
I'll dance among the living dead
It'll be so right
When we're light
AWAKE

Old two eyes
You're so damn hip
You've been hypnotized
It's all bullshit
Track Name: The Drift
Blindsided by a rogue wave
Now its fight or flight
I hear you but I turn my head away
You’ll never know the type
Of pain that breaks the spirit down
Just tell me you might
One day maybe I’ll be whole again
How do I get from here to there?

Here I stand
Circled by the vultures
Waiting for me to lose the fight
My hand reaching out for closure
Do you know how it feels inside?
I stand
Circled by the vultures
I know the fear is justified
My hand reaching out for closure
Do you know how it feels?

Things will never be the same
What they say is right
I know the light will burn away
Only to reignite
I’ll face the cold and darkest days
But the changing tides
Remind I’ll be whole again
Break me down
Unprepared
How do I get from here to there?

Ride the ebb and flow
The only thing that makes sense
Is that of impermanence
Don’t you see
We glide along the ebb and flow

The fear is justified
But you know it’s just a ride

Here I stand
Circled by the vultures
Waiting for me to lose the fight
My hand reaching out for closure
Do you know how it feels inside?
I stand
Circled by the vultures
I know the fear is justified
My hand reaching out for closure
Do you know…
Track Name: Monster
There's a church here
Buried deep
Underneath a boiling sea
Skeletons
Dressed like you and me
Searching for the means to speak

It's risen from grave
So wild it can't be tamed
Flesh stitched to flesh
We're making a monster

Just a pauper
Among kings
He kills butterflies
Eats their wings
There's a crypt filled with childhood dreams
Burning
Bursting from the seams

The blood
The sweat
The tears
Make me
Track Name: The Way
Crazy
How we all bow down
Blindly
Have you ever thought
That maybe
We can change things now
If you had a voice
What would you say?

We came to find we're all the same
So here's your call
To change the writing on the wall

Lately
Terrabytes of sound bites
Have terrorized the globe
Maybe we can turn it down
And listen to one another
What would you say?

Stopped from feeling anger
Another way to sterilize
So cover me with evil
I see it in your eyes
I'm flowing here with anger
Incandescently alive

All in time
I will find the way
