Track Name: Pacific View
I couldn’t settle
On the means of my escape
Another vessel
Stuffed full of things you hate
I’m treading water
And drinking deep Pacific blue
And dreaming deeply
Of a scenic ocean view

Dead dreams, fresh real estate
(Pacific view)
Scattered there by the side of the road
(Pacific view)
Fall dates in fear of death
(Pacific view)
And not much else by the side of the road

Running from a telegraphed mistake
You can taste old sweat
You want to get away?
Then take the interstate
Track Name: Lament Configuration
Angels to some
Demons to others
You must come with Us
To taste our pleasures
You opened the Box
That infernal cube
You’re coming with Us
I have such sights to show you

Pain and Pleasure
Indivisible
Dreams are fleeting
Only Nightmares last Forever

There is only Flesh
Limits Unknown
We’re going to Hell
But we can’t go alone
Please stop your tears
Please stop your crying
It’s such a waste
Of good suffering

Pain and Pleasure
Indivisible
Dreams are fleeting
Only Nightmares last Forever
Track Name: Time To Stand
it's time to stand, it's time to fight, we've got to stop these monsters
gotta launch a resistance before they take away our sound
but bullets won't make most things right, the lead just energizes
gotta find a new way to fight or we're gonna lose this war
lose this war
lose, lose
lose this war
lose, lose

it can't be chance, this dogma advance, can't be coincidence
perceived iniquities are hiding the real ones
protect the truth, it's more precious than any gold or diamond
gotta shed light on the shade to find the filth below
or we're gonna lose this war
lose, lose
lose this war
lose

there's other aliens
they're gonna muffle your sound
there's other vile beasts
they'll destroy our Earth
we need to rise and stop them
we need to band together
we need to rise and fight
rise and fight
rise and fight
rise and fight
or we're gonna lose this war
lose, lose
lose this war
lose, lose
Track Name: Glitter Blood
the stars in our eyes died centuries ago
we're just waiting for the lights to go out
they travel so fast but they come from so far
all this waiting makes me wanna shout

when you hit me I glitter blood
when you cut me I glitter blood
when you bite me I glitter blood
and when you kiss me I taste like blood
Glitter Blood
Glitter Blood
Glitter Blood

there's hate in their eyes
and they vomit out fear
oh their hearts have an icy coat
when they spew out their lies
and it gets on your shoes
make sure you kick it right back down their throats

when you hit me I glitter blood
when you cut me I glitter blood
when you bite me I glitter blood
and when you kiss me I taste like blood
Glitter Blood
Glitter Blood
Glitter Blood

The stars in our eyes died centuries ago
and your the ones who turned the lights out
so if you feel annoyed
well then please rest assured
that you gave us a good reason to shout

when you hit us we glitter blood
when you cut us we glitter blood
when you bite us we glitter blood
and when you kiss us we taste like blood
Glitter Blood
Glitter Blood
Glitter Blood
Track Name: PHDidn't
You love to put me on your wall
so at your dinner parties you can brag and laugh and lie
you say I'll do better
you say I'm better
I say "better than what?"

The little jabs, classified ads that you send in the mail
I'm not your happy little doctor and never will be
the little jabs, classified ads that you send in the mail
I don't want what you want and you don't want to hear that

You've got the four bedroom house
the garage, the garden, the lawn,
the neighbor's shittier lawn
yeah, you're living the dream
but that fantasy, it just
it just ain't for me

The little jabs, classified ads that you send in the mail
I'm not your happy little doctor and never will be
the little jabs, classified ads that you send in the mail
I don't want what you want and you don't want to hear that
My life ain't big enough to cover all that you want
My life ain't big enough to cover all that you want

My life ain't big enough to cover all that you want
My life ain't big enough to cover all that you want
Track Name: There Must B 2
They say to dance there must be two
must be me and must be you
me in black and you in red
and what you hear
the sound of your fear
well it's music to my ears
and in this moment you are not ready yet

So I call you up and I ask you a question
but you don't know how to answer
but that's ok because I'm standin here lookin at you
wonderin of a way to get through to you

And I wonder if three's a crowd or a party
There are two of me but there's one of you so let's start it

They say it takes two to tango
well it takes a lot to arrange all of these consequences
and all these dance partner changes
Lady in red
I pull us cheek to cheek
and my face matches your screams
and in this moment you have given everything to me

So I call you up and I ask you a question
but you don't know how to answer
but that's ok cause I'm standin here right behind you
cockin my head and raisin my hand

And I know now that three's a crowd, not a party
I prefer my own company so let's get things started
Track Name: Maya
Time flies when you’re going numb
Who knows how long you’ve been this way
Those April showers drowned so many flowers
Those poor souls met an early grave

Emotions seem to run strong
While you sing your song
Yet the feeling just isn’t there

Try to get your heart beating
But these thrills are fleeting
You cannot escape this despair

Your siren song drives those you love away
But keep singing until we’re all deaf
These photographs will be your epitaph
When will they see that you’ve got nothing left

Emotions seem to run strong
While you sing your song
Yet the feeling just isn’t there

Try to get your heart beating
But these thrills are fleeting
You cannot escape this despair
Track Name: Next Time (Next Time)
I’ve been waking up at the exact same time on the exact same day for what seems like eternity Been trying to find and keep out of harm the one who to me means more than anything
Can’t save you from the things that you’ve done
Keep watching you slide through my hands Cause every time, I do, I try something new
But it just doesn’t change how it ends
Keep Trying (It won’t work)
It won’t work, it must

I don’t know how to best explain it all, it’s some kind of curse or the best opportunity
I am slated by fate to repeat the same day, watching you die in every way
Is it something I did, some heinous sin
That put me in this karmic jail
Cause it feels like the first time, no matter how many times I try and I try and I try and I fail
Keep Trying (It won’t work)
It won’t work, it must

I will save you (Not again)
I will save you (Never again)
I’ll do it next time, I’ll do it next time (I won’t fail you)
Track Name: The Same Way
Death ain't knockin
but I'm sure listenin for it
I sure ain't no Napoleon, never make my name in books
but who is?
who does?
As if that'd put my mind at ease

I say I'm nothing
the same way
I say I'm something
the same way
I say I'm sub-par
the same way
I say I'm special
the same way
I say I'm stupid
the same way
I say I'm clever
the same way
I say I'm nothing
the same way
I say I'm something
but I'm not

Do I have a tired body, or do you just have tired eyes?
Seems like yesterday neither could've been true
But who knows?
Who knew?
You can't ever go back without facing the ruthless truths

I say I'm nothing
the same way
I say I'm something
the same way
I say I'm sub-par
the same way
I say I'm special
the same way
I say I'm stupid
the same way
I say I'm clever
the same way
I say I'm nothing
the same way
I say I'm something
to maybe someone

I say I'm nothing
the same way
I say I'm something
the same way
I say I'm sub-par
the same way
I say I'm special
the same way
I say I'm stupid
the same way
I say I'm clever
the same way
I say I'm nothing
I say I'm nothing
I say I'm nothing, nothing, nothing
I say I'm nothing, nothing, nothing
Track Name: D.I.M. (Do It Myself [RIP#DIY])
I'm the psycho killer, I'm the untamed beast
You're the violent beauty with the pretty face
When we are together we cannot be stopped
So meet me in the middle and we'll reach the top

If you wanna get the gold
You're gonna have to do it yourself
And if you wanna reach the top
You're gonna have to fight 'em all off
And if you wanna be the champ
You're gonna have to beat the best
And if you wanna beat the best
You're gonna have to do it yourself

Me and my brother, yeah we've been through hell
We've fought hard and we've fought well
Threw all the ladders, went right over the top
But we're on a losing streak and it's gotta stop

If you wanna get the gold
You're gonna have to do it yourself
And if you wanna reach the top
You're gonna have to fight 'em all off
And if you wanna be the champ
You're gonna have to beat the best
And if you wanna beat the best
You're gonna have to do it yourself

You are my brother but hey this knee's for you
You let me down for the last time
I do not like it but y'know it's what I gotta do
To regain some peace of mind

So if you wanna reach the gold
You're gonna have to do it yourself
And if you wanna reach the top
You're gonna have to fight 'em all off
And if you wanna be the champ
You're gonna have to beat the best
And if you wanna beat me, Johnny
You're gonna have to do it yourself
Track Name: Haunted
A flash of black and brown, darting to shadows
I quicken my pace to the nearest room with locks
Always there in the corners of my eyes
Sleep hasn't been a refuge in years

A crowd, a field, a glare, a shade,
a call, a note, control... my mind

You don't want me, you just haunt me
You don't want me, you just haunt me
You don't want me, you just haunt me
You don't want me, you just haunt me
Haunt me

I dared to hope our love was pure and genuine
But you're more a demon bent on avenging my life's sins
Always there in the corners of my eyes
Sleep hasn't been a refuge in years

A crowd, a field, a glare, a shade,
a call, a note, control... my mind

You don't want me, you just haunt me
You don't want me, you just haunt me
You don't want me, you just haunt me
You don't want me, you just haunt me
Haunt me
Haunt me
Haunt me
Haunt me

There was a time when these tactics would have worked
But I refuse
Refuse
Refuse

You don't want me, you just haunt me
You don't want me, you just haunt me
You don't want me, you just haunt me
You don't want me, you just haunt me
Haunt me
Haunt me
Track Name: Ominous Nominous
I’m awake but I can’t move and all I feel is fear
My eyes are open, my chest is tight, I can sense it drawing near
A dark presence in my room, why it comes is not quite clear
Suddenly on the edge of my vision a shadow appears

Paralyzed, or am I dreaming? All I know is it’s coming for me
Can’t escape, can’t cry for help, all I can do is let it come for me

It visits me too frequently, always arrives when I’m sleeping
Nothing but dread inside my head, there can be no escaping
It has no voice, it has no form, at least none that I’ve seen
I know it’s there by a change in the air, this miserable being

Paralyzed, or am I dreaming? All I know is it’s coming for me
Can’t escape, can’t cry for help, all I can do is let it come for me
