Track Name: El Diablo
Time, an urgency we buy
For venting all our apathy
Through terrors when we die
Sin, a love that won't give in
For sentimental fantasies
That burn beneath your skin

Hope, an error you erode
With fallacies of penitence
Your beggars are your throne
Enough, I have had enough
We're predisposed for silence
But silence is your crutch

If you're not controlling me
I'm afraid I'm a sullen fiend
If you're not supposed to be
In the way of all I'll see
Between the devil and me

Stall, we need to learn to fall
So hold off from your anger
Our violence is your call
Bliss, a point that you have missed
For hopelessness you'd call me
A self-appointed pessimist

If you're not controlling me
I'm afraid I'm a sullen fiend
If you're not supposed to be
In the way of all I'll see
Between the devil and me

If you're not controlling me
I'm afraid I'm a sullen fiend
If you're not supposed to be
In the way of all I'll see
Between the devil and me
Track Name: Pyongyang
Have you heard of the dissonance we live, we live
On a sphere of eroding planes between thoughts we give
Little mind to a tragic heart of your home, so far
Disagree, you’re insecure about who you are

Could you say what’s more mundane than going home tonight?
Would you be more or less insane if you said you’re fine?

I was bewitched by time with which I chose to be
Content in peace of mind, your home’s not used to me
These pictures on your walls they did not choose to hang
There’s no-one like us there who’s on the phone we rang
In Pyongyang

Predisposed to a life apart from my own, my own
Simple mind can’t comprehend what you know, your home
Would defy my sense of self and misplace my head
Could you feel my lifelessness am I all too dead

I was bewitched by time with which I chose to be
Content in peace of mind, your home’s not used to me
These pictures on your walls they did not choose to hang
There’s no-one like us there who’s on the phone we rang
In Pyongyang

I was bewitched by time with which I chose to be
Content in peace of mind, your home’s not used to me
These pictures on your walls they did not choose to hang
There’s no-one like us there who’s on the phone we rang
In Pyongyang
Track Name: Erasure
I’m erasable
Or so I’m told
I’m abatable
Cause I’m alone
Irrationality
Is aglow
I’m expendable
Cause I’m unknown

I’m a consequence
Of death and fear
In my reverence
For living here
I’m insignificant
To your peers
For their countenance
To abuse your fear

Will you erase me?
Condemn my mortal soul?
Will you contain me?
My god am I alone?

I’m a liar
And a thief
I’m told I’m buying
Your relief
So why do I run
If not afraid?
Am I a sermon
Of unwanted pain?

Will you erase me?
Condemn my mortal soul?
Will you contain me?
My god am I alone?

Will you erase me?
Condemn my mortal soul?
Will you contain me?
My god am I alone?
Track Name: Milk Carton Kids
Gone, where have you gone?
Do you feel you don't belong?
Run, where will you run?
Fired from the barrel of a gun
Home, where is your home?
Are you feeling alone?
Been, where have you been?
Where was your soul last seen?
Soul last seen

Live, where will you live?
How much more have you to give?
Die, where will you die?
Are you living a lie?

I need calling
I’ve been falling

Hope, where is your hope?
Was it removed by your own?
Afraid, are you afraid?
Has all that you love been erased?

I need calling
I’ve been falling

(I've been falling)
(Where'd it all go wrong?)
(Where did it all go wrong?)
(Love me, hate me)
(I've been running 'round while the world is falling out)

I need calling
I’ve been falling
Track Name: Harrison Ford
There’s a disconnect between my body and my mind
There’s an empty empathy for the Gods that aren’t alive
There’s a happy fax machine who’s never had to die
There’s a sick contempt for me cause I don’t know how to lie

There’s a love in solitude that breeds a gap in empathy
There’s a rage inside of you that proves a lapse in apathy
There’s a life inside your head that fills the screen of your TV
There’s death that I have seen that means a whole lot more to me

Cleopatra
She’s a world I built inside my mind
Cleopatra
She’s the pain I feel that gets me by
She don’t matter
But she don’t seem to realise
Cleopatra
I’m falling in love with a prototype

There’s a holy error here to set your culture free
From the debt we’ve built from our collective apathy
There’s a lust for cleanliness that dissipates entirely
When the walls come crashing down to raze the hope that you don’t need

Cleopatra
She’s a world I built inside my mind
Cleopatra
She’s the pain I feel that gets me by
She don’t matter
But she don’t seem to realise
Cleopatra
I’m falling in love with a prototype

Cleopatra
She’s a world I built inside my mind
Cleopatra
She’s the pain I feel that gets me by
She don’t matter
But she don’t seem to realise
Cleopatra
I’m falling in love with a prototype
I’m falling in love with a prototype
I’m falling in love with a prototype
Track Name: Debase
Some say elation is an empty dream
Erased upon awakening
Long conversations over empty beliefs
Where I’m terrified to disagree
Cause I can’t conceive

Desire loves to make
A fire ridden fool deserve
Your dirty little games
And I've been lost again
And I've been breaking rules enough
To throw it all away
When I fall and you debase

Visions of mercy from a darker mind
Gently pushing you aside
Concrete in something of a space and time
That’s far away from where lie
Cause it’s all in our minds

Desire loves to make
A fire ridden fool deserve
Your dirty little games
And I've been lost again
And I've been breaking rules enough
To throw it all away
When I fall and you debase

And I've been dissolved
And fires in my head have burned
And steadied far too long
But not anymore
Cause I've been changing in the world
That I've been longing for

Desire loves to make
A fire ridden fool deserve
Your dirty little games
And I've been lost again
And I've been breaking rules enough
To throw it all away
When I fall and you debase
Track Name: Jamie
Jamie likes punk rock
She deals in shell shock
Jamie has a knack for getting on a soap box
Jamie’s got a fever
Not a believer
Since she had a dream that they said she’s not a dreamer now
She’s not a dreamer now

Jamie’s an elitist
She’s a defeatist
Learning all the ways the powerful will beat us
She is not a love song
She’s not a heartthrob
Keeps it to herself that she doesn’t think head strong now
She's not headstrong now

But she’ll only hurt tonight
She’s a renegade inside her mind
But she would rather die
She’s only proof in lies
Of pain and fear that’s trapped inside
She’ll ingest a pesticide

Jamie’s not alive but
She’s spending time on
All the boring days that’ll waste away her life for
Useless entertainment
Words on the pavement
Scrambled by a man that don’t understand the pain she’s in

But she’ll only hurt tonight
She’s a renegade inside her mind
But she would rather die
She’s only proof in lies
Of pain and fear that’s trapped inside
She’ll ingest a pesticide

Watch her fading away
Degrading day by day
Hopelessness is all that remains
Feel her losing her love
For all the time she's lost
Death is all she’d ever want

But she’ll only hurt tonight
She’s a renegade inside her mind
But she would rather die
She’s only proof in lies
Of pain and fear that’s trapped inside
She’ll ingest a pesticide
Track Name: Circles
She's gone for quite some time
She's an echo in my mind
So fill the empty space
Shadow corners gone to waste
So where does it belong?
I'm together right and wrong
So take me all away
I guess it's just too dull to stay the same

I can't remember when
When the end was the end

I've been running 'round in circles getting older
Time is bringing memories closer to me colder

Fake your sympathy
Who are you gonna be this week?
And resonate in me
But don't forget who you were gonna be

Until the ender's end
You're living on inside my friend

I've been running 'round in circles getting older
Time is bringing memories closer to me colder

I've been running 'round in circles getting older
Time is bringing memories closer to me colder
I've been running 'round in circles getting older
Time is bringing memories closer to me colder
Track Name: Issues
We’ve lost our days to the wind
This apathy is all that we have been
We’ve lost our ways to our sins
I hope that we can finally begin
To fill these holes in our souls
With brick and mortar ways that we were told
Could not remove all the mould
That grew on younger sons who are getting old

So hold me down

Will you be taking my issues away?
Is this over-complication
Just as easy today?
Will you be taking my issues away?
Do I just misunderstand
Or am I really to blame?
Will you be coming up with something to say?
Are you sticking around
Just to follow the rain?
Will you be taking my issues away?
Cause they’ve already gone in separate ways from my way

We’ve lost our hearts to our minds
From long abandoned dreams we've left behind
We’ve burned our sorrows and our lies
They’ve been replaced with memories of losing time
We’ve never known how to fall
Without the hurting land we’ll lose it all
We’ll never show what we’re for
In hopes that we won’t lose our way once more

So hold me back

Will you be taking my issues away?
Is this over-complication
Just as easy today?
Will you be taking my issues away?
Do I just misunderstand
Or am I really to blame?
Will you be coming up with something to say?
Are you sticking around
Just to follow the rain?
Will you be taking my issues away?
Cause they’ve already gone in separate ways from my way

Will you be taking my issues away?
Is this over-complication
Just as easy today?
Will you be taking my issues away?
Do I just misunderstand
Or am I really to blame?
Will you be coming up with something to say?
Are you sticking around
Just to follow the rain?
Will you be taking my issues away?
Cause they’ve already gone in separate ways from my way
