Track Name: Wasted Time
When you open up the gate for me
inside crushing relativity
flood the dial something can be said
did you know you’ll always end up my best friend.

So it goes the lowest low it breaks the mold.
I won’t wait here the lonely road is in the letting go.

I go outside and I walk a little more.
Did you go to work or just go to the store?
Did you see it? Did you see it?
In the end,
was it worth your pain and suffering?
Track Name: Dream Take
What if all of this is all for nothing?
Let it sit inside your mind.
And we’ll watch it go, into the ash into the morning,
crisp the air like all the same reactions
clear your plans and fade away.

Fresh eyes move us ahead
still is not calm.
We’re waiting on the world,
the world to be born.

So what’s it all about?
Let’s go inside and talk it out.
If we only saw how this could go-
wouldn’t we know? Wouldn’t we show our best?
We’ll never turn our backs for less. Blood is
thick at water’s edge.

I cry.
Track Name: Seeping In
Fire the houses!
Who's at your door?
I’m never coming home anymore.
It’s seeping in, watch out.

And I know, I never want to feel this way again.
And I know, I will.

Follow the money and you’ll find the time.
I’m finding little peace or the will to fight
but you can count me in, watch out.
Track Name: Exposure
So you think that I’ll never tell, what’s in it for me?
I see everything baby, believe me.
Funny how you think you want something but you’d never believe
those who hold the keys are keeping…

Lies inside, the morning to the night that’s how it goes.
Don’t let them make you regret that choice ‘cause
heaven knows, that’s how it goes.
Don’t expect a miracle.

Living to watch them fall, still, we’re fractured.
Die by the book and who's overlooked,
demands reaction.
Though the view gets lost sometimes
find the need to shock the mainstream
who’re doomed repeating.

To do, what you want them to.
Track Name: Wild Card
Could this mean a truce that stands?
Dig your head out of the sand, is this how it ends?
Beating out the choice you can either
make it up or wait around to find out why
you’re laying a brilliant mind to waste.

Reckon your reasoning, hell-
would you stick it on the line for someone else?
Fanning the flame of what’s to come.
Would you even know what you've got till its gone?
What’re you waiting on?

Stand in for a million, what’s mine to waste?
Even if I drown.

Would you even lie at all if there were no mistakes?
Close your eyes cause if it falls there are no mistakes.

No power that you’re after can make you a god,
would you challenge the ideals of a wildcard?
Track Name: Rewired
Fear like a hunger
it drags you underground
what goes around
comes back to pass.
comes back to laugh
Keeping one eye open at night
on common ground.

Why can’t they be rewired?
I feel it.
Fool enough to be the agency of greed
and supremacy.

Ease is like comfort,
it drags you underground.
Feel safe somehow.
You hide behind…

If you’re open to me I will understand
I hope that you could offer me the same hand.
Track Name: Salt
Believe the hype
‘cause this world is breaking up
turning a heatwave into ice. Cracking down,
it’s gonna be great.
What I know now is a gaudy masquerade.

Brining our coats.
Feelings that of optimism become the bomb.

Classic mystic, if you blink you’ll miss it
…wake me when they come around.
We cried
if you can’t take it back at least help to make it right.

Brining our coats.
Feelings that of optimism become the bomb.
…listening to what we don't know;
listen to what we don't know.

How long must we be talking so slow?
Into arms with teeth wrecking our souls.
Even if I change
will you be the best part?
Even if I change
would you have a change of heart?
Every being has it’s time,
I want you in mine.
Track Name: Artifacts
Doesn’t matter if the story makes no sense.
We’re still waiting on a little righteousness.
The notions that get planted in your head,
like rotten seeds that bear a fruit of dread.

Waiting to turn things around,
like holy water, raining down.
Waiting to makes your amends,
so sweetly faithful, till the bitter end

Can I get a witness to the lonesome dance?
Can I get to heaven sitting on my hands?
I made my peace with sin and circumstance.
I touched a nerve and there’s no going back.
Track Name: Empath
Finally find that my mind plays tricks on me
and you know why I never got to hold my breath
I never could explain myself
I end up feeling more bereft believing what I saw.

What I wanna know is how it seems, could I be
so naive? When all I really want is the better part of me.
And I wanna feel the way I do in this scene so serene,
show a little kindness; empathy.

What I wanna know is how it seems, could I be
so naive? When all I really want is the better part of me.
And I wanna feel the way I do when I’m high all the time
around you.
Track Name: Contact
Add this to the list of things
the things I shouldn't miss.
I’m captivated, my confidence faded...

I wanna be right, I wanna be right.

Trying my best
makes me feel numb.

Suzie says that I’ve got nothing left,
she thinks I’ve been too honest with you.
We make our statements and we never change them
and I crawl on the floor of your rabbit hole.

It feels so good, to hurt this badly.
It feels so good, sometimes madly.

I don’t know what you’ve done to me.
Won’t you ever see what they've done to me.

I wanna be right…I wanna be alrigh
