Track Name: Total Control
I've been dying to see you
I've been trying to reach you
But you opened your eyes, you open your mind, you open the skies and it rained
So, then politely you said

"We hide away to escape the day that we are found. Guilty by association, this is not a godamned nation."

"I won't lie, it all takes time to find the reason why we choose to deny that we see through you."
Track Name: Cold Deceiver
Cold deceiver am I?
Print these lies on my forehead
Cold deceiver am I?
But we'll try to open our eyes to peace

It was all those lives that you could not live
and all those reasons that you did not give
they are coming down the mountain side
like a river thats flowing from your eyes

...and I stop to think that this feels right to me

Cold and wicked am I?
Dry your eyes, don't you cry no more
Cold and wicked am I?
Did we die? I don't know any more

So, fall back into me like a puzzle piece
You were made to sleep and fit
Track Name: Karate
Wind creeps in my window through the night
Past burning lamps that struggle to stay bright
They flicker as I drift away to happier days
And allow my mind to wander away

I allow my mind to wander away
Why would it bother to stay?

So when all the good is gone and all the curtains drawn
And only darkness remains
Darkness
Darkness
Darkness, darling
I see your face on the backs of my eyelids offering no grace

I allow my mind to wander away
Why would it bother to stay?

Now I'm drifting, swimming, sifting through the cracks
I will retrieve those thoughts that my mind retracts
I'll send them to find you in your room, that old familiar tomb where I lay my troubles to rest in peace
I'll send them to find you in your room where, of me, my fear won't get the best
Won't get the best of me
Track Name: Adder
Don't be keeping secrets, don't you hide
Be careful where you lay down
There are snakes in the grass it seems
So, won't you come and turn the lights out
We can turn the music up loud
You can blame this all on me
So, lover, please don't speak
Because when you're silent, you're a book that's open wide
I can read the pages in your eyes and I get lost in cliches
It was when you were young
You began to believe in the worst of it all
So, lover please don't speak
Because when your silent, you're a book that's
open wide
I can read the pages in your eyes and I get lost in cliches
Don't be keeping secrets, don't you hide
Be careful where you lay down
There are snakes in the grass it seems
Track Name: Crack a Smile
Use and abuse
Until they hang you out to dry
Time will show the truth behind their eyes
...and they're staring right at you

They scream through broken teeth saying,
"God, I love this misery!"

So now you're crossing your fingers in hopes that you'll find a way to fill this gaping hole they left, well, maybe some day.

Demons and ghosts
Are hollow and lack remorse
Bred to hunt, they're born to kill
They won't stop until they've had their fill
...and their hungers aimed at you

The Ravens pick at peasant feet while my pride it does with them in the streets

So now you're crossing your fingers in hopes that you'll find a way to fill this gaping hole they left, well, maybe some day.
Track Name: Back Roads
We've been working around ourselves and getting caught up in old ways You were trying to fill the tank to ride around for days
Because you"re addicted to the backroads

I've been walking sideways for days
Won't you come and pick me up if it's on the way
We can talk all night sitting tight on a long drive

You're addicted to the backroads
Track Name: Wondering If
I believed in change, no matter how sparing it was
And if I don't feel the same, isn't that still change, anyways?

Oh, how quickly you were thrown into the fray
As soon as your feet hit the ground you were running the race
I hope you never let those good times slip away
Stuck dreaming about words that you never could find to say

Is this the way it goes?
Is there not more to this?
Is this the way it goes?
With no metamorphosis?
Track Name: Color Me Burnt
Who's to say
Who's to say who really wins here
Who really wins
Who really wins in a firefight

Color me burnt
You've turned your back to the fire
Defy and deny
Refuse to stand with your head held high

So hang your head down low
Track Name: Wrong Side
Lost in a punchline
Feelin' kind of bent
Walkin' towards a bag of wine
...and maybe another hit

But Oh! Hell no!
I don't want to be alone

I'm on the wrong side
Of the fence again
But the grass is greener than it's ever been

Now I'm losing myself in grand delusions
I sleep on softer ground but I ain't proud
Where ya gonna go if you can't follow
Sure you got your thoughts but you don't know how
....To say what you want to say

Seek and follow all the signs
Seek and follow, no one get's left behind
Track Name: Poseidon
Asleep at the bottom of the sea
This curse I lay upon thee
Asleep at the bottom of the sea
You'll be damned if you disturb me

Don't you disturb the water

Asleep at the bottom of the sea
This curse I lay upon thee
Asleep at the bottom of the sea
You'll be damned if you disturb me
