Track Name: Pigeon Superstition
I scribble, I scrawl my thoughts on the wall
Capture the moment, savour the flaws before I fall

I'll be the good dog, I'll come when you call
I think I'll just give up, I have no will at all

Who's out to get me?
I'm out to get me

I bought the seed to plant the tree that I will swing from
I poured the venom into the cup that I will drink from

I'm asleep on my feet, I'm dead inside
I poison myself to feel more alive
Track Name: Holding My Breath
You said in another life
We could have set the world on fire
But I'm still me & you're still you
This time around you know my name
But I'm still nothing to you

Are you listening?
Is there anybody out there?

I must be such a bore, so easy to ignore
You've proven time & again why
I'm glad we're such good friends

You said in another time
You'd be the shooting star that I could keep
Your life goes on while mine stands still
This time around you know my name
But I'm still nothing to you

Look away, cover your eyes
Walk away, turn a blind eye
Look away, cover your ears
Walk away, nothing to see here

I'm not gonna keep holding my breath
Track Name: Vegas In Black & White
I need to lift the veil
I need to crack your code
Show yourself to me
Unlock your mystery

I'm so spent, got nothing left
Trying to figure you out

Hope the rhythm carries us through
I got no words for you

The shame is mine & mine alone
The blame is mine & mine alone
I made you this way

I need to strip you down
I need to tear you apart
Show yourself to me
Unlock your melody

You mock my efforts
Shun my advances
It all seems as pointless
As seeing Vegas in black & white
Track Name: Wake
My head aches, my bones break
My hands shake, my earth quakes
Bite my tongue for me now, I can't seem to
Chew my lips for me now, so I don't have to

But I'm trying to be all right now

My soul aches, my brains race
My heart breaks, my mistakes
Fall asleep for me now, I can't seem to
Fake a smile for me now, so I don't have to

I will never let you go, even though you let me go

My world spins, my soul dims
My fear wins, my everything
Fill this void for me now, I can't seem to
Feel something for me now, so I don't have to

I'm ok
But I'm not all right
Track Name: Imager
She's so electric
She's so, so electric

The reality of the situation leaves me breathless with anticipation
She's the focus of my fascination
How did I get here?

I like the way she looks at me
From inside my computer screen
I like the way she touches me
In my pixelated fantasy

How could she do this to me
On social media streams?
She thinks that she can hurt me
But I still got 80 gigs of memory

The reality of the situation leaves me speechless
Broken with rejection
She's the object of my obsession
How did i get here?
Track Name: Cut & Run
I guess I read you wrong
But it's not my fault
Your eyes speak in foreign tongues
Like an ancient language

Did you win or did you lose?
It all depends on your point of view

You left me stranded & empty handed & I can't stand it
Can't stand the way you hide

You like hanging stop signs
Well I like running reds
So hang your no loitering sign
& I'll always stick around

You must have known all along
Who you were dealing with
It didn't take very long
For you to cut & run
Track Name: Boot Party
You say I'm a twister in your trailer park
A wet blanket, a stick in the mud
You say I'm the blister that ends the night
You say I'm just no fun

Shove it in my face
Rub my nose in it
Kick me when I'm down
Promise I won't make a sound

Shamed in secret, submissive master
Drowning & weightless, condemn the dreamer
Blamed in secret, cauterized bleeder
Silenced by violence, bury the guilt

You say I'm the footprint in your new cement
A bed stained with dried up virgin blood
You say I'm the sprained wrist that ends the night
You say I'm just no fun

You like to, you want to, you need to make me beg
You like to watch me bleed
You bring the salt & I'll bring the wound
Do my bruises amuse you?
You like to watch me bleed
Track Name: Dandy Prat
The smartest man you'll ever meet
Spends all his time preaching to no one
A victim of his convictions
A hero of a circumstance

A.M. radio, his laboured breathing on the line
Saving the whole world one cigarette at a time
A soldier, a crusader, a god in his own mind
Saving us all with one misconception at a time

Save your breath

The smartest man in any room
Spends all his time cursing at the moon
A master of any debate
All detractors, you better beware

A mouth breather, a futile man
Sometimes saviours do wear sweatpants

A.M. radio, his laboured breathing on the line
Saving the whole world one cigarette at a time
A legend, a celebrity, a god in his own mind
Saving us all with one misconception at a time

Save your breath
Track Name: Borrowed Bodies
I don't know where I'm going
I'm not sure where I've been
The road that lays before me
Has no forks & it has no bends

It's all in the mask that you wear
When you live in the shade of night
It's all in the mask that you wear
When you're hiding in plain sight

Pooling blood behind me
A thousand miles of dead ends
The shattered bodies of too many friends
Smiling skulls at crossroads & vultures on the fence

Will I live to see tomorrow?

If I live to see tomorrow, would I be left for dead?
Track Name: Hoosegow
Shake a leg, don't make beg
Be so kind to grant me one final request

Let me go

Curse my name & curse my eyes
It's so much better when you play the bad guy

Let me go
Let me out

Fire me, don't make me quit
I'm a coward, a selfish piece of shit
Track Name: Parasitic Twin
It's dark down here, down in the womb
There's not enough light or enough room

Follow me, I know the way out
I'll lead you to the exit hole

When we're all tangled together
Not sure if that's your hand or mine
Our fluids will tell the story
Of one body but separate minds

Just close your eyes, don't make a sound
There's just not enough food to go around

I'll eat you from the inside out
I'll beat you to the exit hole

There isn't room for both of us
They don't even know you exist
I'll emerge into the world
With blood already on my hands
Track Name: The Future Rejected Me
I'm not here
Never was
As you wish
Just pretend
It didn't happen
Best if you can sleep
On a clean bed

I guess I made a mess
I ruin everything
One plus zero always equals nothing

If love is suicide, I'm already dead
A willling sacrifice, I'll be the lamb

In low light I saw you better
In my mind's eye we're still together
You never should have said forever

The time flies
Circling
Becoming ghosts
The echoes are fading
Distorting lines
Changing your face

I'm not here
Never was
I'll disappear
Become a ghost
