Track Name: Duck and Cover
Distract us with a smoky reflection, not this time
A movement in another direction, not this blind
Put one foot in front of the other, would you please stand aside
Shield your eyes from the flash in the distance, it’ll keep us alive
Until we meet our demise
Another word to the wise
No pushing or shoving

It’s two or three minutes to midnight, fear them all…
We bury our heads in the hindsight, hit us with no warning at all…

They will do anything to drive away your will (drive away your will)
Everyday it’s on display, don’t know how to feel
I realize it’s no surprise, no other way to show
But out the gate it’s much too late, no other way to go
Track Name: Whatever
That’s how it goes, this life I chose surrounds me
We plead for another chance to take, while we’re wide awake, astounding
Then they laugh and point at you, your point of view, your path
[Never had to run until you had to jump the gun]
Well I don’t know, and I won’t show, you’ll never know!

Because it’s dead to you, but was it ever really alive
Whatever, they will see you walk away after kick us in the side
It struck me odd that you say that it’s better this way, in your eyes
Whatever they will feed you ought to consider that you’re only here for a while…abruptly

It cuts too deep, a price too steep, abandon
It leaves no other choice to make, all these steps we take to plan them
Everything that follows you, it swallows you so fast
[A will without a way will never see the light of day]
Well I don’t mind, you’ll never find a better time!

But it’s dead to you, but was it ever really alive
Whatever, they will see you walk away after kicking us in the side
Struck me odd that you say that it’s better this way, and you’re right
Whatever they will feed you ought to consider that you’re only here for a while

And now it’s dead to you, but was it ever really alive
Whatever, they will see you walk away after kicking us in the side
Struck me odd that you say that it’s better this way, but you’re right!!!
Whatever they will feed you ought to consider that you’re only here for a while
Track Name: Unseen
There are some things that just can't be unseen, not fair at all
It leads me to think that we should never blink, not there at all
This creature of habit is weaker than average in a way
But try not to focus, it's dire but not hopeless like they say
 
We should have done better
Shouldn't we just go home?
Trying to make the effort
To shine like we were shone
Alone...alone...
 
We learn when they live and return what they give, not far to throw
We swim through the madness, my goodness the badness, to and 'fro
A simple disaster, a cynical bastard, wet and cold
The forces unseen are the sources that mean to take their toll
 
We should have done better
Shouldn't we just go home
Wasn't it worth the effort
To shine like we were shone
Unknown...unknown...unknown...unknown!!!
Track Name: That Much Is Certain
That just will not fly
Yet still we will try
Sets us apart
Not yet set in stone

I don't mean to raise my voice, something has pulled back the curtain
And now it's not a choice, not a dream, that much is certain
And now it's on the line, surely we can sense the danger
But it don't fit the crime, happens when we talk to strangers
 
Talk to strangers!
 
That just will not fly
Yet still we will try
Sets us apart
Not yet set in stone
 
I don't mean to raise my voice, something has pulled back the curtain
And now it's not a choice, not a dream, that much is certain
And now we're out of line, surely we can sense the danger
But it don't fit the crime, happens when we talk to strangers
 
Give it up, it's not enough to receive
You know we're gonna mess it up, best believe
It's not enough to give it up, just receive

I don't mean to raise my voice, something has pulled back the curtain
And now it's not a choice, not a dream, that much is certain
And now we're out of line, surely we can sense the danger
But it don't fit the crime, it happens when we talk to strangers (2x)

I try to be polite, not like they can tell the difference!
If I may, if I might, wish this from my sight, don't listen!
You don't want in this mind, another classic work of fiction!
Integrate, misalign, warm my heart from all the friction!
Track Name: Electric Polar
If I sit here enough, and bide my time and wonder why, it hits me
A clever approach, puts it into the ground
Is it ever enough to get behind an understated mercy
Degenerate mind, deliberately blind

How can we turn this around?
How can you lose what is found?

Can you picture it now, undeserving, unaware, awaken
Surely a way to detach from the ground
Given the way we come together all the same, but different
A peace of mind, one piece at a time

How can we learn not to drown?
How can you refuse what is sound?

Then we go through the motions forever, even though it's at a distance
A private devotion, just set in our ways, on a path of least resistance
I think the laugh will be held against us

Then we go through the motions forever, even though it's at a distance
A private devotion, just set in our ways, on a path of least resistance
I think the laugh will be held against us
Can we even grasp what this presents us?
On this path of least resistance
Track Name: Hurry
Wretched assignment, perfect timing, have me mistaken for somebody else
So open-minded, yet closed-fisted, and we insist we're like nobody else
They get behind me, and try to define me, should be a crime, I guess I'll leave it alone
They take a number, and push me under, and if you wonder, guess I'll go it alone
Better leave it alone!!!

Well I know that I don't wanna hurry
'Cause you know it's gonna make it here fast
We're onto something, you need not worry
'Cause you know that the system won't last
'Cause you know it's come to past

You got my attention, did not mention, not my intention to reveal or imply
A false assumption, draws dysfunction, taught at a younger age, it doesn't apply
I'll feel much safer, a piece of paper, so many layers, guess I'll be okay
They try to earn them, they try to burn them, don't try to learn, it's best to just walk away...
Better run away!!!

Well I know that I don't wanna hurry
'Cause you know it's gonna make it here fast
We're onto something, you need not worry
'Cause you know that the system won't last
'Cause you know it's come to past

Well I know that I don't wanna hurry
'Cause you know it's gonna make it here fast
We're onto something, you need not worry
'Cause you know that the system won't last
'Cause you know it's come to past
'Cause you know it's come to past
'Cause you know it's come to past
'Cause you know that shit won't last!
Track Name: Who You Are
Feed the need to be absurd
Need to bleed, indeed perturbed
Finding a way to finally see, the kind of sign to receive
Find a way, in time reprieve

Fill the shoes…
Still refuse…
 
In your state of demotion, illogical to cede emotion
When you don’t know who you are…it’s up to you!
 
The mind is made in shades of grey
Find the fade, in time decay
A myriad of the ways to suffer, the suffrage kept at bay
Find a way, in time repay
Fill the shoes…Still refuse…
 
In your state of emotion, illogical to cede emotion
When you don’t know who you are…it’s up to you!
Track Name: Squawk
Something hurts
Make up words
Lend one, too
Send me through
 
I see no reason to feel the fall
I see no reason, no reason at all
Nail me in or fail to pass
‘Cause in the end it’s meant to last

Share the pain
Barely blame
Break the curse
Fake the worse

I see no reason to feel the fall
I see no reason, no reason at all
Nail me in or fail to pass
‘Cause in the end it’s meant to last
Track Name: Hungry Lung
Gotta go, gotta grow, gotta get away, in need of assistance
Do it now, make us proud, live another day, none of your business
Begin to think that this could be the end of me, we’ll see what happens
And then a friend turned me into an enemy; we see who’s laughing
 
Head down, chin up!
Let down, get up!
 
Lotta fun, gotta run, gotta slip away, in case you need me
Never there, never care, never unaware, and so it leads me
Out of love, pull the rug right from under me, I saw it coming
Heads or tails, never fails, let it get to me, was all for nothing

Head down, chin up!
Let down, get up!

Not one to complain, and so it remains…again
And even though it’s insane that we are one in the same, in the end
Would it hurt anyone to call it like it is
Call it like it is!
 
Gotta go, gotta grow, gotta get away, in case you need me

Head down, chin up!
Let down, get up!

Not one to complain, and so it remains…again
And even though it’s insane that we are one in the same, in the end

Call it like it is!
Track Name: Remembrance
A different path one has to take, leaving part of themselves in the wake
Can’t do the math, it’s hard to shake, hardly swallowing down their fate
Remembrance, relive the haste, it is all that’s left to do in this case
Never forgot, the wrong was wrought
A thought I never shall, I don’t know how to embrace

A different time, a different rhyme, I hope the bitterness will subside
Beyond my mind, respond in kind, as I try to wipe away any sign
A perfect shot, an imperfect plot, in urgency an utter disgrace
Belligerence and ignorance, a thought I never shall, I don’t know how to embrace

If need be, just take control
It seems to me that it touches the soul
It leads me further down the hole
I don’t know I got to this place, no I don’t know how I got to this place

If you wipe away all the dust and grey, corrosion of familiar strings
Give away, dispose, in a way impose, the circumstance and chance that it brings
Remembrance, relive the haste, it’s all that’s left to do in this case
Never forgot, the wrong was wrought
A thought I ever shall, I don’t know how to embrace

If need be, just take control
It seems to me that it touches the soul
It leads me further down the hole,
I don’t know how I’ve come to this place, no I don’t know how I’ve come to this place

Is it wrong to question the road that’s paved
It’s a question I will take to my grave
Just as long as the rest will fall in place
It is a thought I never shall, I don’t know how to embrace
