Track Name: In Cycle
Little specs from the street
In dotted marks of disease
Fly in my eye and i cry out
None see or hear
Cascading beakers of tears

Indignant blues for insipid blends
Sink the royal spade stricken blades
Long overdue for splendid aid

I’m drowning in the pavement
Forsaken
In persistant grooves
Indiscretion bends
Indeterminate we play pretend
Free make the moves we unintend

Little voices don’t speak
They play along silently
Quell the hands that command every route
Instilling fear
We’re locked in here

In persistant grooves
Indiscretion bends
Indeterminate we play pretend
Free make the moves we unintend
Track Name: Forfeit All
Forget what was planned
Don't stop and clap hands
Come on
You sit and taunt
As if that's all you want
Come on
Tell me your intentions
What do you hide
I can't decipher
Set opinions aside
Or we'll never find
A new way to leave this behind

Adamant, my way
Will satisfy
So step aside
Circumvent my size
And forfeit ties

Pretension won't form
A set of new norms
Come on
The pathways are clear
And there's nothing to fear
Come on

Adamant, my way
Will satisfy
So step aside
Circumvent my size
And forfeit ties

Don't want to fight but the teeth only bite

Forget what was planned
Don't stop and clap hands
Come on

Adamant, my way
Won’t satisfy
So step aside
Circumvent my size
And forfeit ties
Track Name: Days to Come
Take another look
while there stands a chance
To show another crook
Where to sink their hooks
Land another glance
Relax the stance

Need one thing more
Greed it from a store
What threads are worn
Will be ignored
I believe

How does it feel
These times you steal
With prizes won
Will you come undone
I believe
You make sense to me

Don't walk away
Communicate obession
Illuminate
The pleasure in the pain
Don't walk away
Communicate obsession

The flicker in your eye
Shows shiny things delight
Bite off all the pieces
And spill with blight
Give what you may
Is what you say
Willful ignorance
Is the game we play today
And every day to come

Don't walk away
Communicate obsession
Illuminate
The pleasure in the pain
Don't walk away
Communicate obession
Track Name: Hideaway Plane
Oh, ahh yeah
Eeeeyahhh
Ooouuaaah
EEeeEE

Splinters form
From broken doors
Chill winter snaps
Blast icy caps
The last days
Come in waves
But where's the source
Directing force

Solar moons
Rule Around
Muted stars
and light pulsars

Hideaway forever place
Cast away to outer space
Hideaway forever
Place

Cast away through outer space
Hideaway in place
Cast away forever place

All the senses glimpse
Synapses mincing vast condensed
Abyssal trips impass
And miss the fractal kiss

Magic devices
Control occurances
Allow subsistence

Dig up deeper dens and hold your friends
Drink dust we must and seal the chamberlein
Sage of blight dictates the nights
Of crimson bars
Corroded cells that spell we are who tell the pose
Mind only knows

Cast yourself away
Hide away in place
Cast yourself away
Track Name: Up the River
Venture sleeper
You've nowhere to share
The reaper leads you here

Coercion builds frames
That silence each version
Obliviously drowning the sane

Let the blood flow and fall undone
Descent mine alone

Drag me away
Make my day
Nowhere is worse than here

But I can't go with you now
I can't come with you
I can't go with you now
I can't come with you now
My world is crashing down

Feel the doubt as you cross me out
Peel resolve to the bone
Siphon blood and I'll fall undone
Descent mine to call my own

Make my day

Blamed I bear other's mistakes
While the shame lies with vicious snakes

(solo)

I can't go with you now
I can't come with you
I can't go with you now
I can't come with you
My world is crashing

Make my day
Drag this flesh away
And feel the weight
Track Name: Pale Dawn
Pale dawn flikkers off and on
Rising start signals broken dawn

No one breaks free
When you erase me
Go on confused
And be without me

But excuses are overdue
I couldn’t do that to you
Abuses self consume
In face of nothing left to prove

While midnight lights the fuse
Ignites a likeness of the truth
Refusal marks a fool
Confused in isolation rooms

Awake and corner every con
Betrayal moves us on and on

No one breaks free
When you erase me
Go on confused
And be without me
Escaper
Take your dance moves
And get away

No one breaks free
When you erase me

No one breaks me
Go on confused
And be without me
Escaper
Take your dance moves
And get away
