Track Name: Paper Fantasies
the talking heads were busy today
hitting a beat to find someone to betray
how could you know that they would take what you value
and twist it up until it no longer held true
don’t try to talk back, listen, answer, obey
it’s not a lead they want
they’re looking for prey
they’ll try to tell you everything’s alright
they’ll try to tell you everything’s okay

but I'm counting lies this time

punisher pundits pointing fingers to say
that judgment day is coming
you won't be saved
I never trust the word of man nor messiah
I'm more concerned with who is willing to buy out
it's dotted lines and dollar signs
sign on the line to see a dollar sign

but I'm counting lies this time

they'll try to tell you everything's alright now
sign on the line to see a dollar sign
how could you know that they were trying to tell you
get back in line and tell a lie this time
Track Name: Queen Alice
oh aching numbness
you coat my bones with apathy
no sympathy for rotting futures
I fail to see who you could be, if you weren’t me

if I believe in you, would you believe in me too?
come meet me further down the rabbit hole

eat me, drink me, spill my blood on sacred ground
without a sound I’ll fall in line
back in the golden afternoon you watched me shine
but what’s out of sight is out of mind

reach out and save me
Track Name: oh! Sirena
her thoughts are poison
each breath, slow hesitation
translating emotions
the ebb and flow of reason

though all that I know
is lost in shadows

an endless ocean
she sings for fear of drowning
reclaiming her fortunes
divined from cards and hauntings

you don’t know that I’ve been dreaming
my spirit screaming, “I’ll die waiting”
Track Name: Exodus
who gives a fuck if god is dead?
he never changed my mind
it’s easier to deny my existence
than choose a path thats paved with hatred and lies

no one’s talking to you

cut the cord and tie a noose
let it all hang out
it’s easier to want to die than to trust you
or scream about the blood on your hands and mine
Track Name: Placebo
breathe the air from a poison sky
salt the earth with an acid sea
we built a world out of greed and lies
reap what we sow for eternity

are we really better or did we find a new placebo?
are we running faster or can we turn the tide and tables?

we're running out of time
we're running out of steam
we're running out of breath
we're running out

blood flows through stolen lands
rivers tainted no tranquility
for trees that burn on the valley floor
reap what we sow for eternity
Track Name: Premeditation
you won’t look me
in the eyes when I’m talking to you
you’re full of shit
telling me lies when it seems better for you

I won’t let you bring us down
it’s not ending when you’re not around

allies, all lies
don’t talk the talk if you won’t challenge your mind
get up, get out
not taking chances by excusing this too

I won’t let you bring me down
I can’t keep this all inside
