01 RATS IN THE WALLS

(3:33)

It was written that I should be loyal
To this nightmare that we're in
But something bout all the sorrow
In your heart that won't let me in

Like the hands of a fool with money to burn
In the breath of one last dying wish
We hear the call and it sounds like there's

Rats in the walls
It's like the dark side of the moon
Serenade me with a whisper
And let this nightmare in us bloom

Where do I send all my money
Who'll deliver the nails through my heart
When I've gone and set it all up
Burning like the walls
In the ghetto of this reckless love

Bow down with a whimper (to pass the time)
Or hold me down (and take what's mine)
Put my head under water (and drink my wine)
And watch me take it all way too far

Lip service to the one that gave you your crown
You're holding your breath as you're waiting to drown
The echoes in your head bounce around like

Rats in the walls
It's like the dark side of the moon
Serenade me with a whisper
And let this nightmare in us bloom
Tonight I'm all dressed here in black
I've got your monkey on my back
We are not what we say
We mean everything we do
And tonight I'm gonna kill
Another part of you

Stimulation
Hollow transmission, ill defined
At the center of our hearts
A signal too obscure to find
Acoustic shadows, sex and chaos
And the sound of you and me
Here all roads defy your gravity

I have been here all along
With the rats in the walls
It's like the dark side of the moon
Serenade me with a whisper
And let this nightmare in us bloom
Tonight I'm all dressed here in black
I've got your monkey on my back
We are not what we say
We mean everything we do
And tonight I'm gonna kill
Another part of you

02 REBELLION OF THE SNAKES

(3:39)

Collapsing global void economy
Erecting chaos to the heart of me
Race and faith aligned in vertigos
There are no atheists in these rabbit holes

Televise the rebellion
So we can feed em to the dogs

Phosphorous and secret holy wars
Heiroglyphic radio and sacred doors
Eradicate the shadow of a doubt
Cause the morphine drip is gonna see you out

We are devoid of religion
We are the science of it all
We are the sin of the song
We are the end of it all

As we give in to the forces that pull you along
The science of never really living at all
The right or the wrong, the sin in the song
The perfect ending to your war
The warning shadows lead me along
For right or wrong we all carry on

The past is dead, don't exist anymore
The present is passing quicker than before
Emancipation to the end of the line
I will not follow where I've been before

The only weapon we've got is our song
The only way we could stand up at all
We scream together, we die alone
In the end your story is all you own

We are devoid of religion
We are the science of it all
And when forever came calling
We never thought that we'd

Give in to the forces that pull you along
The science of never really living at all
The possibility of going home
The rebellion we start to save our own
This will be broadcast on the nation's door
It's the perfect ending to your war

The past is dead it don't exist anymore
The present is passing quicker than before
The past is dead I don't wanna anymore
So I will not follow where you've taken me before

03 THE ANIMAL AND THE MACHINE

(3:13)

For every bullet in your gun, we've got a plan
To change the world and make it better
This song's for everyone screaming from the pit
We are the soundtrack
We bleed together strong

Nobody here's pretending that we got this figured out
Some things are better unknown
We all got something that we feel we better let it out
Before the whole thing blows

We've all been down this road before
Our history, it shows exactly what we're headed for

Can't save the world
But you can always tend the neighborhood
I wanna live and die for something good
Emanipate the soul, tell your brother he's not alone
Cause life's too fucking short to become victims of each other

We are the story of the animal and the machine
We are more than just life
We are serrated by the things we always hated
So what's the point of it all

The dogs laying at our feet
These battle songs playing on repeat
Ocean tides crashing at our knees
As the stranger in us all finds comfort
Somewhere in the heart of the machine

Gutter angels played guitar when you couldn't sleep
You're the reason, you're the consequence
You howl cause you're going mad

In the chaos of this consecration
A room without a view
Time will only take from us
What we knew we'd always lose

We are the story of the animal and the machine
We are more than just life
We are serrated by the things we always hated
So what's the point of it all

The dogs laying at our feet
These battle songs playing on repeat
Ocean tides crashing at our knees
As the stranger in us all finds comfort
Somewhere in the heart of the machine

Somewhere in the heart of the machine

04 MODERN DRUGS

(3:39)

Your darkness falls against your radiated skies
Night shades flicker, pulse and drone inside your eyes
It reminds me how we used to play
Before we found these modern drugs

Take one last breath and hold you in
Lock the door and let you win
Cause inside you know my god
It's shaking under me
It's giving head and burning beds
It's holy wars and jealous dead
It's suicidal radio
Echoes where we should not go

Somewhere through the hurt we know, we survive
This love is just expensive drugs
And we're getting too high to drive

In ritual in all we live
In the chemicals we take to give
On your knees before the fall
Nail you to the wall
No poetry to quote the end
So I'll hold my breath and keep you in
Rot me out and name your sin
Cause there's nothing left to win

Somewhere through the hurt we know, we survive
This love is just expensive drugs
And we're getting too high to drive
It's in the ritual in the habitual
The longing to want it all
With no frequency, electricity
We're all addicted to the fall

These antidotes that take the soul
Only erase it all away
Till theres nothing left for the heart to realize
Then vacant and hollow we become a means to an end
And the space between each other gets farther every day

I'm not the one
Gonna make you feel

Somewhere through the heart we know, we survive
This love is just expensive drugs
And we're getting too high to survive
It's in the ritual in the habitual
The longing to want it all
With no frequency, electricity
We're all addicted to the fall

Your habitual modern drugs
It's in the way they sell you out
I'm gonna nail you to the wall
This hole I'm down, it will swallow us all

05 BLACK MAPS

(4:15)

We're further than we've ever been

In dreams I navigate to the space inside my heart
Where I find grace among these souls that only live to hate
So lost and on the run
Headed for a light that we all see
Beyond the ragged framework of our lonliest skies

We're all lost and on the run
Tending fires that we make, that we lost control of

So these black maps will lead me on my way tonight
Through valleys hidden in between the darkness of your eyes
Pythagorean skies to lay claim philosophize
A shadow on your face as you completely lose your mind
Well it seems this path has led me straight to you

I believe there's a place where you and me can find our way
Here we go to hell and back hold sway
It's a place we never let em see
A place designed for you and me
X marks the spot, you'll always know exactly where to find me

It's deeper than our hearts allow
Deeper than the sea we drowned
A shadow on your face as you completely lose your mind
Through valleys hidden in between the darkness of your eyes

We're farther than we've ever been before

The terrain here is desert dry
And the drugs you find won't get you high
Here the sum of the hole
Is deeper than the hearts it stole

I believe there's a place where you and me can find our way
Here we go to hell and back hold sway
It's a place we never let 'em see
A place designed for you and me
X marks the spot, you'll always know exactly where to find me

We're all lost
And on the run, tending fires that we make
We're all lost
Can't get control of the fires that we make

06 SPANISH DAYS

(3:16)

There are those that I took everything
And there are those that I gave everything I had
We don't wanna die in vain
We don't wanna live in chains
Screaming till the end of days for the madness of this love

Does anybody know what they want
Has everybody gone insane
When all the lonely places we haunt
Echo everything we want
We're just borrowing what we can't own

So show yourself

All the pretty things, they sell us out
So bury me deep in the hole that I bought
Suck me off and make me real
Plug me in and do what you feel
A metaphor for letting go
To show yourself there's something more

Does anybody know what they want
Has everybody got what they deserve
When all the lonely places we haunt
Echo everything we want
We're just borrowing what we can't own
So show yourself there's nothing more

As it washes over me in silent grace trajectory
Am I a prisoner because I choose to be

Does anybody know what they want
When everything is made to break
Is anybody really there
When all the world is mine to take
When all the lonely places we haunt
Echo everything we want
We're just borrowing what we can't own

So show yourself
Am I a prisoner cause I choose to be

Raise you up to where you belong
Nobody ever stays
Around too long to get it right

When all the world is mine to take
And everything is made to break

07 TESLA

(4:04)

All alone on this battleground
Like dying roses in the face of our decay
I'll be the one voice that opposes
And I'll raise my head so you can see my eyes
And know that you were not alone
When the storm took up these skies

But how do I explain it all
As it passes here before my eyes
With gravity on my back
You turn and whisper

We found a way
To forget ourselves and just walk away
We found a way to leave it all behind

Promise me if I become
The worst of anything I've done
You'll show me the road home again
Underground, pressed against your cold dead skin

Disappearing time
And the space you build inside my mind
To fortify a place where you can hide away
So speak the line
And I'll give you an ear to bend
Fake a sigh of relief and we can all pretend

That our decay defines who we are
And there's nothing left in this world but our desire
And the arms of the ones who we betray

We found a way
To forget ourselves and just walk away
We found a place where we won't ever be found

Promise me if I become
The worst of anything I've done
You won't let 'em know how close we all came
To getting what we're dying for

The light on your face
Illuminates what once was a cage
For all the ghosts behind your eyes
We live forever as the wind
Our voices are the weight of time
Like a whisper in a bottle, let it turn to poison wine

We found a way
To lose ourselves and just walk away
We found a way
To leave this love behind

We found a way
To forget ourselves and just walk away
We found a way
To leave it all behind

How do I explain it all
As it passes here before my eyes
Promise me I won't become
Everything we're running from

We're exactly where we want to be
In the arms of the ones that we betray

08 NOWHERESVILLE

(3:54)

Now I already know
Which way the wind blows
By the sound of machine hearts
Blottin' the horizon
And I no longer feel
The weight of consequence
My actions proving futile
My deliverance a waste of wine

I feel like I've been hypnotized
A lifetime waiting to awake
And offer something more
One screen showed me to the sea
The other flashed the drums of war
And everybody sang

I no longer wanna see what you're showing me
It doesn't mean a thing at all
It doesn't change the way I feel
It's all white noise, expensive toys
Gimme me or I'm takin yours
It's you and I, along the great divide

We're never gonna see eye to eye
When the distance is measured in a lie
And I already know
That without light there is no shadows
I'd leave it all behind
I'd walk into the setting sun
Just to burn away
The illusion that I'm living free

One screen showed the worst of me
The other tried to sell me more
Now I've got all I can take
We've been to hell and back
We've seen the great divide and wanted more
Now it's coming 'round again

I no longer wanna see what you're showing me
It doesn't mean a thing at all
It doesn't change the way I feel
It's all white noise, expensive toys
Gimme me or I'm takin yours

And if you saw me now
Would you recognize yourself
We're all going somewhere
We're all going to Nowheresville

It's all white noise, expensive toys
Gimme mine or I'm takin yours

I no longer wanna see what you're showing me
It doesn't mean a thing at all
It doesn't bother me at all
I no longer what to feel what you're too afraid to reveal
And all the signs that guide my way
Left me stranded on my way to Nowheresville
Stranded on my way to Nowheresville

It's all white noise, expensive toys
Gimme mine or I'm takin yours takin yours
Stranded on my way to Nowheresville

09 MAGNOLIA

(3:24)

In cruise control to the wreck of me
I lay my head up against the wheel and dream
Highway forty-five oh-nine
Stretches across this wicked dream of mine
Abated only by the engine drone
The silence takes hold and then I'm home

Phantoms and shadows take control of the wheel
The smell of gasoline, sex and steel
Somewhere I lost my way and you got brave
And now here I lay

Somewhere in this highway's moan
The angels dare to guide my way
Strychnine and broken spine
The engine wanes
Seat belts tighten across my chest
Broken glass and plastic finally come to rest
As all my senses come alive and start to shake me
Broken bones and the smile that you left

Magnolia don't pray for me
All the warning signs I never cared to see
Magnolia, all direction lost
I took the ride and I paid the cost

No illustrious collaboration
Somewhere out of time alone
And you're the one that made it out
You're the shadow and the doubt
A lonely ambulance is heard across the highway
With sirens screaming out your name

Magnolia don't pray for me
All the warning signs I never cared to see
Magnolia, all direction lost
You're the one that's moving on

Raozor steel collapse and burn away
Magnolia don't pray for me
Crosses line and angels sway
Cruise control to the very wreck of me
The warnings signs I was too blind to see

Magnolia, all direction lost
You're the one that's moving on

10 GO IT ALONE

(3:11)

My distant morning shines mute witness
To another sleepless night
Reminds me I've been awake for days
With silence in my chest
My bloodless empty veins remind me nothing stays the same
It's like waking dream a possibility
Fleeting like a memory

How do I explain this life
As it passes and changes before my eyes

Another day of breathing, waking next to you
The world could end and I'd be fine
Right here where I am

You're a witness to these words I breathe
You'll never have to go it alone
You sleep and on I drone
The madness here it only grows
While you maintain and unify
The darkest part of I

From the valley in my heart
I sing this melody

Another day of breathing, waking next to you
The world could end and I'd be fine
Right here where I am
To paint the world a little more blue and show you how
My distant morning shines without you

In golden hues of disorder

As I suffocate through another line
You sleep and I drone on
Well there ain't no hell like the one inside
In every breath of mine
We live in moments we can't define

Another day of breathing, waking next to you
The world could end, I'd be alright
Where I am
To paint the world a little more blue and show you how
As the distant morning shines through me
You'll never have to go it alone
You'll never have to go it alone

The days move on and leave behind
The remnants of the love we find
And the silence in my chest resolves
That I'll never make it here alone

11 NO APOLOGIES

(3:20)

I don't ever wanna reflect to me, because I'm doing my music?

I wonder if I left this place today
If something went wrong and I couldn't be around to say
All the things I kept from you till you got old enough
Would you hold the world against me or would you understand

So show me something that I used to know
In another life before I grew to where I had to let it go
Now we'll never walk alone

Through fields of time, we tow the line
Through all the hurt and damage we find
And every day's another shot to show me everything I've got
We're reckless with no apologies

Would you listen to me
And not mistakes I've made
As I watch this world slowly chip away
That innocence behind your eyes
The beauty in your heart
I look you in the eye to remember all that I forgot

Now every day's a little more than just surviving
As the person that you grow to be is stronger than the best of me
And the possibililty
And all the space between you and me

Through the fields of time we tow the line
Through all the hurt and damage we find
Will it come to be that you're the brightest part of me
We're reckless till the end with no apologies

Now every day's another chance
To find a part of you in me to realize the best in me

Through fields of time we tow the line
Through all the hurt and damage we find
And every day's another shot to show me everything I've got
We're reckless till the end with no apologies
No apologies

Would you listen to me and not the mistakes I've made
As I watch this world slowly slip away

12 WESTCOASTTRENDKILL

(4:24)

Well I still believe a good man better know his darkness well
Cause the days of kings are over
And all the good men have gone to hell

I raise a glass to every restless heart and lonely soul
Cause these boots were all I ever needed
To get me to where I had to go
If there's one thing I ever learned from life
It's make peace with the end
Cause freedom here is just a word
And everything else is just pretend

Somewhere between what
We call heaven and hell
We all take a stand
Together or alone

It's life stories from the desert
When it used to be the sea
Like visions of the end
Like crawling through the dirt again

Glory glory hallelujah son
In the desert here only silence grows
So let your saints go there they're already gone
You're only what you let yourself believe
What you wanna be, what you wanna be
You are the sum of every single moment that you've ever been alive

It's like falling back in love
Like screaming what you're thinking of
Like going underground and taking everybody down
Articulate the chaos, manufacture resurrection
Overcome the distractions to control your evolution
Cause you're the sum of every moment
That you've been alive

I still believe a good man better know his darkness well
With a heart just like a desert only silence grows
Where you stand is where you are bound to fall
When your heart forgives, it's a miracle at all

Like thunder in your sky
Like looking up and wonderin why
Like going underground and taking everybody down
Articulate the chaos and the way to resurrection
You are the bullet that killed the revolution
Cause you're the sum of every moment
That you've been alive

Like falling where we stand
We are the fear that chills the bones
Like dying every time we think we got the time to move on
We're in deeper than we'll ever know
