Track Name: All About Me
Lately I've been thinking / All about myself.
All the thing that I could do / Without anyone else.
People love you when you're there / When you're not you're the enemy.
You conform to their ideals / And delusional realities.

Let me tell you from now on,
It's gonna be all about me.
In this world of poison,
In this insecure society.
I'll be as selfish as Jesus,
Cause I know he didn't die for me.
Everyone wants to save themselves,
Life is short and mine isn't free.

Don't you wanna fit in here / And be a part of the crowd?
Well you look like a nice boy / Who lives his life in a cloud.
I want to rape your unconscious / And torture all your ideals
I don't care about all your needs / I forgot how to feel.

Let me tell you from now on,
It's gonna be all about me.
In this world of poison,
In this insecure society.
I'll be as selfish as Jesus,
Cause I know he didn't die for me.
Everyone wants to save themselves,
Life is short and mine isn't free.
Track Name: A Different Frequency
I communicate / With my friends
Still we're all alone / Living in our heads
Narcissists / Who pretend
With the masks we make / Just to compensate

This is the last time I'm pulled in / To the destruction you won't see.
The words that you say are static / I'm on a different frequency

You / Blame it all on me
Your own thoughts / I don't oversee
A punching bag / You've conceived
Compassion could / Be the death of me

This is the last time I'm pulled in / To the destruction you won't see.
The words that you say are static / I'm on a different frequency
Track Name: Inner Circuits
I see you staring from across the room
I think maybe, just maybe
You could be my savior or my prophet of doom
My baby, oh baby.

I think I've found someone that's just like me
Holds the key, so lucky.
Someone who's sicker at a higher degree
To raise me, to save me.

I never thought that I could fall from the sky but,
Every time I look right into your eyes I know
You no longer feel that magical high and so
It seems our lovin' has gone so awry

My body's achin' from the passion we have
Lately, greatly
My inner circuits are re-wired so that
You use me, abuse me.

I need to taste you just so I can survive
And feel you corrupt through
It doesn't matter if I'm really alive
You thrill me, you kill me.

I never thought that I could fall from the sky but,
Every time I look right into your eyes I know
You no longer feel that magical high and so
It seems our lovin' has gone so awry
I never thought that I could fall from the sky but,
Every time I look right into your eyes I know
You no longer feel that magical high and so
It seems our lovin' has gone so awry
Track Name: Souvenir Of Pain
Well I feel like / Like I don't know where I belong.
In the spotlight / Of my own show that's going wrong.
Could I lose it / When everyone's got their eyes on me?
Am I deemed fit / With the judgement you've passed down on me?

You'll always be my bane
My souvenir of pain.
We keep the line maintained
Avoiding your disdain.

Can I get through it? / Please say a prayer cause they want my demise
Do I submit to / All the things that you have surmised?
You've got no logic / No evidence to base your case
Another angle / Could put me in a higher place.

You'll always be my bane
My souvenir of pain.
We keep the line maintained
Avoiding your disdain.
And so we play this game
We'll never be the same
You think you hold no blame
You live your live in vain.

You'll always be my bane
My souvenir of pain.
We keep the line maintained
Avoiding your disdain.
My souvenir of pain
My souvenir of pain
My souvenir of pain
My souvenir of pain.
Track Name: She Says
She says that everything will be better.
Things can't get worse if I keep my head...above the waves.
So I try to stay afloat in this ocean
To not get pulled in to the depths of despair...In this world I hate

Sometimes I lose it
And I feel like I can't go on.
Motionless as the world goes 'round
It's when I know my head is gone.

She says she'll hold my hand if I need her
That I've got a friend who will stick around...until the end.
I hold her close and tell her I...
I can't help but think about those times...someone said the same.

Sometimes I lose it
And I feel like I can't go on.
Motionless as the world goes 'round
It's when I know my head is gone.
Well I should've been selfish
I could've saved myself from pain.
Everybody picked and picked and wanted from me
And all I did was give it away.
Track Name: Eleanor
She puts on her black boots
Her red lipstick too.
She takes the R to Greenwood
For a date that's overdue.

As she walks from the grave
Morbid thoughts through her head.
It's easier talking to
The silent dead.

She pours herself some red wine
She does this every day.
Then she makes her way down to the church
She's go to sit and pray.

As she walks from the grave
Morbid thoughts through her head.
It's easier talking to
The silent dead.
Preferred conversations
No judgement from friends
If only the living
Were deceased instead.

McKenzie reads his sermon
As she cries from the pew.

As she walks from the grave
Morbid thoughts through her head.
It's easier talking to
The silent dead.
Preferred conversations
No judgement from friends
If only the living
Were deceased instead.
Track Name: Playdate
My head feels just like / A balloon full of gravel
Every time I think of / How this could unravel.
I know that you're there / Sleeping through your sorrow
Pretending not to care / Not thinking about tomorrow.

Oh don't you see
You're a soul who's got more than a story to tell?
I'm sure you'd agree
The worst enemy is the one you made with yourself.

Won't you come out to play / I promise not to bite you.
Things will be your way / Never will I spite you
Mistakes don't matter when / Mutilation is self-desecration.
Living everything again / In the moment of temptation.

Oh don't you see
You're a soul who's got more than a story to sell?
I'm sure you'd agree
The worst enemy is the one you made with yourself.
By yourself.

Oh don't you see
You're a soul who's got more than a story to tell?
I'm sure you'd agree
The worst enemy is the one you made with yourself.
Oh don't you, don't you don't you don't you see
You're a soul who's got a soul who's got a soul who's got a soul?
Your worst enemy your worst enemy your worst enemy your worst enemy
Is the one you made the one you made the one you made you made you made you made you made
By yourself.
Track Name: Leech
Life passes by / As hazy as can be.
It seems everything / Is catching up with me.
There's too much static / In my fuzzy frequency
If my world came down / Would I vanish in debris?

I used to try
Back then I was naive.
I could rely
In those that I believed.
We got so high
Trying to reprieve.
Saying goodbye
Anytime we were deceived.

Those who were there / Never said goodbye.
I sit and dwell / The world is passing by.
Inside me is / A little boy who cries.
His dreams out of reach / And watching my decline.

Just like a leech
You made sure to suck me dry.
Got no more to give
I'm no longer in supply.
I'm not surprised
That you're not around
I'll deal with my shit
If you won't kick me when I'm down.
Track Name: Perverted Views
I found myself / Inside a bottle
I can't remember when / I remembered me.
Solutions for / An overwhelming problem
The part of my head / That never goes to sleep.

It's the little crack that I feel / Here in my brain.
The one that I'm hoping will / Soon go away.
For everyone's sins / I'm left here to pay.
It's funny how life / Has turned out this way.

Oh damn this noise inside my head
Repeating everything unsaid.
How did it all come down to this?
The darkness always will exist.

I'm living / In distortion
Nobody listen / To anything I say.
Breaking down / My fuzzy life proportions
Muting the lines / I never could convey.

To your ears that are deaf / To the words that I speak
Stars that I share / I guess are too weak
Killing my time / Knowing we're meant to be
Indifference / Is where we agree

I can't believe that you can't see
That you mean everything to me.
Astonished with perverted views
To blind for what's in front of you.

Oh damn this noise inside my head
Repeating everything unsaid.
How did it all come down to this?
The darkness always will exist.
Track Name: Chelsea
The sky is grey / As I sit in this room.
A wasted day / Of memories I exhume.
This creaking chair / On a stained wood floor.
Shows decades of wear / Souls have drowned here before.

Well I could end
I could end it now.
As I descend
I could end it now.

Another sip / To keep the anger down
I watch the room spin on / One-twenty ounces now.

Well I could end
I could end it now.
As I descend
I could end it now.

La la la la la
La la la la la

Well I could end
I could end it now.
As I descend
I should end it now.
