Track Name: Let Us Be
they're judging you
they're judging me
they're judging everyone they see

their pyramid scheme
has little esteem
their lining us up for their regime

paralyzing your thought
a militant plot
setting traps so you'll get caught

but is it for you?
it's not for me
but they won't take no for an answer

they say they'll give their life
but they won't give me
freedom from their outrageous make believe
they're not immune from the ridicule
they should receive
time to turn the tables on their disease

they're judging me
they're judging you
they're judging everything we do

they're out to deceive
and make you believe
they prey on the weak and those naive

paralyzing your thought
a militant plot
setting traps so you'll get caught

but is it for you?
it's not for me
but they won't take no for an answer

they say they'll give their life
but they won't give me
freedom from their outrageous make believe
they're not immune from the ridicule
they should receive
time to turn the tables

let us be
let us breathe
let us teach diversity

let us speak
let us shriek
let us reach for all we see

let us seek
let us freak
let us all be more unique

let us breed
let us bleed
let us need to feel the need
Track Name: The Ghost of Mary Jane
she takes hold when i'm alone
and i give in so carelessly
once i'm under, it's no wonder
i'll do any and everything she needs

i'm so weak when she comes calling
she's the star of all my dreams
holds me captive, but i'm willing
no need to break through the chains

and every time i feel her uneasy feeling
welcoming the shadows that dance on the ceiling
she's the one who always can ease my pain
i'm haunted by the ghost of mary jane

she takes hold when i'm alone
and i give in so carelessly
once i'm under, it's no wonder
i'll do everything she needs

and every time i feel her uneasy feeling
welcoming the shadows that dance on the ceiling
she's the one who always can ease my pain
i'm haunted by the ghost of mary jane
Track Name: High On Roses
had enough of the season of misery
boarded up all the memories, tore them to pieces
changed all the locks
accepted that this was more than enough

owning up to the failure, sorrow and grief
finger pointing at nothing, no one receiving
a splintered touch
nothing that's done would be good enough

i'm dead on my feet but high on roses
out to appease this broken heart
i'm trying to keep all my composure
but matters of peace get torn apart
and we're a long, long way from the start

no one out there is listening, all deaf ears
turn away from the truth, there's no loss of hearing
it's all a bluff
to never exist wouldn't be good enough

i'm dead on my feet but high on roses
out to appease this broken heart
i'm trying to keep all my composure
but matters of peace get torn apart
and we're a long, long way from the start

i'm dead on my feet but high on roses
out to appease this broken heart
i'm trying to keep all my composure
but matters of peace get torn apart
and we're not too far from afar
Track Name: Draw Straws
we turn our cheeks from the conflict
nothing will hurt us if we don't know
the chosen few have been handpicked
boxed up and shipped off first class

we can draw straws
we can choose sides
we can take pride in not having any pride
we can bow out
before it's too late
before our mistakes cannot be replaced
we can take chances filling in the empty space

there's no parade for the losers
no trophy for second place
there's only sheer disappointment
and a kick on the way out

we can draw straws
we can choose sides
we can take pride in not having any pride
we can bow out
before it's too late
before our mistakes cannot be replaced
we can take chances filling in the empty space
Track Name: I'll Melt The World (and start with you)
they say we're down to the last days
they say we're nearing the end
but whether they're right or wrong
whether we do or don't belong
i have no desire to make amends

we've both had our hands in mischief
we've both been at each other's throats
i'm sure we'll rue the day
when we first crossed each other's way
i wouldn't give you a raft to stay afloat

you still find the time to blame me
but you're the one up for review
i'll give you no lament
your existence I resent
i'll melt the world and start with you

i'll melt the world and start with you
i'll melt the world and start with you
i see no difference and nothing you say is true
i'll melt the world and start with you
Track Name: Daisies
stop and smell the daisies
then crush them under your feet
there's nothing wrong with being lazy
mix the sour with the sweet
you're one of the elite

while you're pushing up daisies
try to avoid all the weeds
there's nothing wrong with being crazy
a half-baked notion succeeds
in the mind it feeds

blow away with the breeze
a fragile existence we all lead
allergic to wisdom, never at ease
forever persistant, but we can't succeed

daisies will grow
out of the cracks in the snow
and the innocence of all your dreams
will take you to new heights

daisies will burn
with all the torment you earn
and the ashes of your dreams
all vanish in plain sight
Track Name: Unphased
unphased, they're so critical
their moral code is criminal

they love their book that's full of lies
its contradictions blind their eyes
they think their hate is justified
their time is all but over

unphased, they're so delusional
obsessed with faith, it's terminal

but don't you dare try to deny
they'll criticize and stand so high
can't see the truth that logic shows
their mouths are open, minds are closed

i'll dig my hole, release my soul
cause i don't see what what you believe in
your prophet ghost, unreal at most
no, i don't need what you believe in
i'll dig my hole, release my soul
no, i don't see what you believe in
your prophet ghost, unreal at most
and i don't believe what you believe in
i'll dig my hole, release my soul
no, i don't believe what you believe in
your prophet ghost, unreal at most
and i don't believe what you believe in
Track Name: Jaded
jaded by design
pointing to the signs of insecurity

jaded by design
all trapped inside the curse of purity

the righteous aren't right
the courageous won't fight
so stable our instability
forgiving with spite
the flightless take flight
and leave us with immobility

jaded by design
force fed the lies of our humility

jaded by design
built to refine our false maturity

the righteous aren't right
the courageous won't fight
so stable our instability
forgiving with spite
the flightless take flight
and leave us with immobility

jaded by design
jaded by the times
distorting history
jaded by design
jaded by the times
dissolve the mystery
Track Name: Centuries
you'll never go wrong forsaking all of us
you hang your fate on misguided trust
you can cry & whine on it all you want
we've known it for centuries

lines are drawn, contentment's gone, you can't agree on history
we all forget our own regrets, it's all just as fleeting as heartbeats

you'll never go wrong displaying your disgust
it's all there in what you brought on us
you can sleep & dream on it all you want
we've known it for centuries

caution's thrown, dissention's grown, the third degree defines the need
bets are placed but laid to waste, it's all just a cog in the bloodstream

you'll never go wrong forsaking all of us
you can hang your plans on misguided trust
you can cry & whine on it all you want
we've known it for centuries

you'll never go wrong displaying your disgust
it's all there in what you brought on us
you can sleep & dream on it all you want
we've known it for centuries
Track Name: Disappear
a bitter man, there's never been one more than me
shut down and turned out each day
wash my hands of all I've been, and all I've seen
it won't hurt to throw it away

unwanted and abandoned i'm bound to be
i walk down the pathway of shame
i'm packing up and shipping out, no more of me
no one but myself to blame

i just want to disappear
from everything i fear
i'll burn every souvenir
throw dirt on the flame

i wish i could say it's been a pleasure, it's been great
i wish i had the will to remain
but time has come knocking and i'll answer the call
the goals were too high to obtain

i just want to disappear or run
from everything i fear and everyone
i'll burn every souvenir and be done
throw dirt on the flame
Track Name: There's No Hope
there's no hope, we're mistaken
no love reawakened
no pleasure that cleanses the soul

there's no use recreating
our hearts as they're aching
no will to relinquish control

there's no voice separating
all choices we're making
no results that will lead us to grow

and so hopeless remaining
we stand contemplating
all things that we already know

and fearless we all go alone
burning bridges as we're throwing stones
all in the name of our own

there's no hope
