Track Name: Keep It To Yourself
It's never ending, just get better at pretending but the things once worth defending turned to dust
Now more divided, used up all that was provided and now everyone relied upon lost trust
Keep getting older, never learn from my mistakes
Just seek forgiveness once there's nothing left to take

Now there's nothing left to take
Nothing left for you to take away
Now there's nothing left to take
Nothing left for you to take away

chorus
I'm pretending I've been hypnotized
I'm dumbing down for my disguise
Still wish that I could close my eyes
And take my poison with a grain of salt

Hate's going viral, there's no plausible denial we're undoing the survival of the smart
Ignorance breeding yet elitists keep on leading, it's a system they've been cheating from the start
We buy their lies to pay for bombs and acts of war
Force-fed false truth til we can't take it anymore

I can't take it anymore
Shouldn't take it anymore from them
Not gonna take it anymore
Shouldn't take it anymore from them

chorus
I'm pretending I've been hypnotized
I'm dumbing down for my disguise
Still wish that I could close my eyes
And take my poison with a grain of salt

Keep lying to yourself, just keep it to yourself
Keep lying to yourself, just keep it to yourself

Not gonna take it anymore
Shouldn't take it anymore from them
Not gonna take it anymore
Shouldn't take it anymore from them

chorus
I'm pretending I've been hypnotized
I'm dumbing down for my disguise
Still wish that I could close my eyes
And take my poison with a grain of salt
Track Name: Nightmares Come True
Wish I knew just what to do
Like every choice I make is wrong when it comes to me and you
Sometimes you're dead inside I know, I feel it too
Sitting watching all my nightmares as they come true

Try so hard, I'm getting nowhere
Give my all but you still don't care
I'm only close enough to watch you fall
Fifteen stories, climb the railing
Put your trust in structures failing
And watch you crumble to the ground with it all

chorus
It feels like everything is broken
Mind and body, heart and soul
Regrets and memories and nightmares take their toll
But without you I'm less than whole

There's so much left I wanna say
I'd give all my tomorrows for one more yesterday
Never felt closer while you're pushing me away
Helplessly watch you kill yourself so much to my dismay

Storm is coming, water rising
See you drowning, not surprising
Try to lift you up to higher ground
Holding on now we're both sinking
Keep on acting, never thinking
You'll be lost at sea but I'll have drowned

chorus
It feels like everything is broken
Mind and body, heart and soul
Regrets and memories and nightmares take their toll
But without you I'm less than whole

I can't sleep but I'm sleepwalking now
Fighting just to wake myself up somehow

chorus
It feels like everything is broken
Mind and body, heart and soul
Regrets and memories and nightmares take their toll
But without you I'm less than whole
Track Name: January
Reservoir's running dry this winter
Riverbeds grow as hard as clay
Staring up at a blue sky needing
A taste of rain on a sunny day
Cold as ice and creating a vortex
Not a drop though the skies are gray
January turned to September
A taste of rain on a sunny day

chorus
But nothing lasts forever
There's bound to be a change
You talk about the weather
But I'm the one who's strange

Feelings change, learn to take for granted
Always best left with things to say
Stay ahead of the pack but you're losing
It's not a race when you run away
Off to look for your next distraction
Growing better at the games you play
Just learn to live with your own decisions
And don't look back when you run away

chorus
Cuz nothing lasts forever
There's bound to be a change
You talk about the weather
But I'm the one who's strange

Once January's over the nights will slowly fade
You'll be long forgotten, I'll be running for the shade

Say goodbye to the last temptation
As the days since the rain pass by
Looking back on a fraction of time like
A drop of rain from a sunny sky
Not a cloud in the sky for a while now
And the pressure is growing high
Holding on to the memories of moments
A drop of rain from a sunny sky

chorus
Cuz nothing lasts forever
There's bound to be a change
You talk about the weather
But I'm the one who's strange

Once January's over the nights will slowly fade
I'll be long forgotten, you'll be running for the shade
Track Name: United Losers
Well we drink all night just to dull the pain
And use chemicals to control our brains
We use angry words to grow thicker skin
But the day will come when the losers win
Getting pushed around til we lose our minds
And our weakness is just the fact we're kind
Feet bloodied by miles in your shoes
Some day we'll push back and we may not lose

chorus
The time is right for fighting
When your back's against the wall
When the losers start uniting
Many palaces will fall

While we suffer all of your consequence
Stuck sitting on someone else's fence
Now we're left behind with what you won't face
And our mouths grow numb from the same bad taste
You step on us til we break our backs
Scarred and bruised by your tire tracks
Now we've had enough, we'll bear no more weight
Let the winners win and take back our fate

chorus
The time is right for fighting
When your back's against the wall
When the losers start uniting
Many palaces will fall

We're so tired of losing
Our future's for our choosing

chorus
The time is right for fighting
When your back's against the wall
When the losers start uniting
Many palaces will fall
Track Name: Speechless (Illuminaughty)
Pulled in all directions, all that I can see is contradiction
Misinform the masses, subtly sedate into submission
Given champions for causes that distract us from the problems
Instinctive loss
American entitlement and self-aggrandizement set us apart
While we preach of change we never seem to find the place to start
Kind is weakness but compassion is the ultimate disguise
Increasing cost

chorus
I think I'm running out of words
Keep pushing back against the herd

Pay attention in your classes, study hard and learn the rules
Never stop to question, get a job, make sure to pay your taxes
File all complaints in writing to your representative
Be sure to vote for change
Put yourself in debt in search of higher education and conform
Abandon all ideals and dreams as hope can only slow you down
Buy into the same dream-crushing philosophy
Just the way it goes

refrain
Is it Illuminati?
Or a conspiracy
Is it coincidental?
I'm just too sentimental

chorus
I think I'm running out of words
Keep pushing back against the herd

refrain
Is it Illuminati?
Or a conspiracy
Is it coincidental?
I'm just too sentimental

Now I'm screaming at this page
Soak my pen in ink of rage
Try to keep it to myself
I should keep it to myself

refrain
Is it Illuminati?
Or a conspiracy
Is it coincidental?
I'm just too sentimental
Track Name: Tiny Black Holes
She's not going back again
For far too long it kept her in her place
Trapped and abused by it
Convinced her that without it she's a
Waste of a human being, it kept her locked away inside a
Cage of manipulation, fed only by depression

pre-chorus
Can't escape the gravity
Of these tiny black holes pulling on me
Lose myself more every day
What's left of her can't break away

chorus
So dark inside that light cannot escape
Every atom is absorbed completely
She's almost gone and there's no coming back
All that matter is absorbed, here and gone so briefly

I'm not gonna play that game
This time I forfeit, you can have the win
For years you've come and gone
Now we're right back where we started from and
Again I'm wondering if everything will end up just the
Same kind of broken-hearted, right back where all this started

pre-chorus
Can't escape the gravity
Of these tiny black holes pulling on me
Lose myself more every day
What's left of me can't break away

chorus
So dark inside that light cannot escape
Every atom is absorbed completely
I'm almost gone and there's no coming back
All that matter is absorbed, here and gone so briefly
Track Name: Spacetime Continuum
You told me you just need some space
And we could have a future in a different time and place
So I'll become an astronaut
Hook a rocket to a net and bring you everything I caught

You told me you just need some time
How was I to know you had already made up your mind
I built a time machine for you
Got stuck repeating the past, never knowing the right thing to do

pre-chorus
I'll probably lose my mind
Keep bending space and time

chorus
Can't find a singularity
A space and time where there's still you and me
Across dimensions I will seek
To find our relativity

You disappear without a trace
Then reappear but I have trouble recognizing your face
The ghost of someone I once loved
Oddly familiar but from where I'm not exactly sure of

I'm reaching for the farthest star
Across dimensions just to catch a glimpse of where you are
In this space so dark and cold
I just can't seem to free myself from your gravitational hold

pre-chorus
I'll probably lose my mind
Keep bending space and time

chorus
Can't find a singularity
A space and time where there's still you and me
Across dimensions I will seek
To find our relativity
Track Name: Victim of Circumstance
Make the same mistakes
Re-live a thousand yesterdays
Keep doing the wrong things and call it deja vu
Take the blame, pass the buck
Keep on pressing my bad luck
And give control to you

But what did I expect?
Court's adjourned before I could stand to object
It's like breaking down my world as it's crashing down on me

chorus
Victim of my own circumstance
Repeat mistakes at every chance

When you came back for more
I let you right back in my door
Insanity so comforting, it's all I've known
Play the game, you'll forget
Everything that you regret
Looks like your cover's blown

But what did you expect?
Court's adjourned before you could stand to object
It's like breaking down your world as it's crashing down on you

chorus
Victim of your own circumstance
Repeat mistakes at every chance

And once again we find
We're losing our collective minds
Ignoring past mistakes, continue playing roles
Wag the dog, ring the bell
Keep us happy in our cells
And let them take control

But what did we expect?
Court's adjourned before we could stand to object
It's like breaking down our world as it's crashing down on us

chorus
Victim of our own circumstance
Repeat the past at every chance
Track Name: Asphyxiation
refrain
We're suffering from asphyxiation
Now I can't breathe in this racist nation
They're using fear and intimidation
Our basic rights are in violation

From Staten Island down to Ferguson Missouri
The biggest cities to the smallest towns
Determined threat by your state of pigmentation
Police man come and shoot you down

chorus
Hands up, don't shoot
A broken system guards the truth
Now I can't breathe again no
Hands up, don't shoot
A broken system guards the truth
Now I can't breathe again no

refrain
We're suffering from asphyxiation
Now I can't breathe in this racist nation
They're using fear and intimidation
Our basic rights are in violation

Every single day we get more and more frustration
Blood on the hands of the man in blue
Riot police with their tear gas come and shut down the protest
Better keep it down or they're coming for you

chorus
Hands up, don't shoot
A broken system guards the truth
Now I can't breathe again no
Hands up, don't shoot
A broken system guards the truth
Now I can't breathe again no
He'll never breathe again no

I can't breathe
This is not free
Track Name: Stay Strong
Believe in a fate I don't pretend to understand
And I can't justify the means
I've watched the world fall apart and rebuild but
Things aren't always as they seem
Some times it feels as though the point is growing dull
Like there's no reason left to try
We're trained to question the cause and effect but
There's not always a reason why

pre-chorus
I won't give up on you even when I give up on me
Each day more reasons why I should give up on humanity
Then it hits me, just like a train, the faintest glimmer of hope
A new horizon, the sun is rising, the slightest reason to cope

chorus
Fall back on you falling back on me
Somehow we'll both stay on our feet
If the earth crumbles from beneath
With you is where I wanna be

The chips are down and the light's growing dim
But there's a warmth to this night
And though it seems there's no hope to be found
Somehow we'll stay in this fight
When all is said and done you're still in my corner
For you I'm not gonna quit
And though I'm knocked down I'm never knocked out, no
No matter how hard I get hit

pre-chorus
I won't give up on you even when I give up on me
Each day more reasons why I should give up on humanity
Then it hits me, just like a train, the faintest glimmer of hope
A new horizon, the sun is rising, the slightest reason to cope

chorus
Fall back on you falling back on me
Somehow we'll both stay on our feet
If the earth crumbles from beneath
With you is where I wanna be

Just breathe, chin up, always stay strong
Never give up, keep holding on
