Track Name: Cell Decay Pt. II
Double lock the doors
Cus I'd love to see your jaw drop
When I break in through the rooftop.
I've been waiting a long time.
Time to settle scores
Cus my morals all died, right?
Cus that's what you said right?

You're a cold betrayer, I'm a hipster slayer. My cells decay.

Oh I can't get away
All my problems are displayed
And the public screams
Something's rotting in your brain,
I'm insane.
But I really think I'll be ok
But I can't say you'll be the same.

Such a wealth of words
But when it comes to content
You give a dollar's worth of two cents.
I'm cashing out in the spotlight.
Let me make it hurt,
Adding fuel to the flame, right?
Cus that's when it feels right.

You're a cold betrayer, I'm a hipster slayer.

Oh I can't get away
All my problems are displayed
And the public screams
Something's rotting in your bran
I'm insane.
But I really think I'd be ok
But I can't say you'll be the same.

Even if you know my name
Expose my game
I'm still the same.
So spread your lies
Hypothesize, behind your eyes
But I'll never change.

Oh I can't get away
All my problems are displayed
And the public screams
Something's rotting in your brain
I'm insane.
But I really think I'll be ok
But I can't say you'll be the same.

I've got nothing to lose
I've got nothing to prove
I've got nothing to lose
I've got nothing to prove
(x's 2)
Track Name: The River Styx
Is it gravity that keeps us grounded
Or our minds telling us that we can't fly?
Reality is masked by one's perspective.
You'll never know,
We're just living with our eyes closed.

Ferry me across the river of the sleepless
So I can see you once again with all of my friends
Bury me with open eyes so I can see straight
I know it's selfish but I know you'd feel the same way.

I won't bury my fears in a bottle
Though I know it'd make them easier to swallow.
Sometimes I wish it was all black and white
Where the good and the bad both have clear sides.
My dear brother
Death has claimed another
From me.
Your body proned
Six feet underneath a headstone.
(Ladadada x's 2)
I don't know if I can go on.
Paranoia, leaves no traces
Hides behind these plastic faces.

What I would give to be like you
(x's 4)

Ferry me across the river of the sleepless
So I can see you once again with all of my friends
Bury me with open eyes so I can see straight
I know it's selfish but I know you'd feel the same way.
I hope you never see what we became
Corporate fodder
Sheep to the slaughter.
Track Name: Arma Statium
Love has a way of taking everything I own.
Leaves me in shackles as she sits upon her throne.
I saw her lying there and made the same mistake.
It's time I learned to leave the bodies where they lay.

Your voice inside my head
Your scent upon the bed
You act so cavalier
But I know you still remember it.

Lies, rain from your eyes
They'll never fly
Your wings will burn when I
Set fire to the sky.
The skeleton inside
Will no longer hide
Your eyes are dollar signs
But you can't steal my pride.

Such extraordinary lengths that people take,
To feel the kind of love that Hollywood portrays,
A false obsession that could drive a man insane
In actuality, it's really all the same.
The kind of love that makes you lose all your restraint
Is the same kind of love that cuts a grin across your face.

Lies, rain from your eyes
They'll never fly
Your wings will burn when I
Set fire to the sky.
The skeleton inside
Will no longer hide
Your eyes are dollar signs
But you can't steal my pride.

Do you remember the nights when you still had me?
I bet you can't stand to see me happy with somebody else.

Lies, rain from your eyes
They'll never fly
Your wings will burn when I
Set fire to the sky.
(x's 2)
The skeleton inside
Will no longer hide
Your eyes are dollar signs
But you can't steal my pride.
Track Name: The Safest Way Into Tomorrow
It makes no difference to me
Where I lay my pillow
If I unravel at the seems
Don't say I told you so.
You say I'm wrong
We've known this all along
Torn up jeans, twisted dreams
This shade of grey will suit me.
Mom dry your eyes
We're leaving this behind
Our broken world is set aflame
The shine of it is calling.

Start a fire, fan the flames
Leave the sleeping where they lay
I don't wanna be the last one standing.
No desire, Know her ways
Burn the liars in their graves
Will I ever be the last one standing?

You can't sell your dreams to industry
So go bury them inside your head
You will never see the life beyond them
While the business suits with their filthy boots
Come perilously close to choking on them.

Start a fire, fan the flames
Leave the sleeping where they lay
I don't wanna be the last one standing.
No desire, Know her ways
Burn the liars in their graves
Will I ever be the last one standing?

Choices are angular
Defined by greed and her appeal
But I'll never lay with her
Though penniless
She still can't have my dream.

Though simple melodies are all I've got to show.
Buried thoughts of death beneath the fallen snow.
So many like me on the river, set afloat
But where would I be if I never rocked the boat?

Start a fire, fan the flames
Leave the sleeping where they lay
I don't wanna be the last one standing.
No desire, Know her ways
Burn the liars in their graves
Will I ever be the last one standing?
Track Name: Thought I Was Human
There's a monster that hides in the basement
They won't stop lecturing me about him
The kids at school that found him,
Surround him.
Sticks and stones, paper-thin bones
The words they spoke,
Concealed inside sadistic tones.

Mirror, mirror on the wall
Which one of us is the fairest of them all
Well I know it can't be me,
For I have wires in my teeth.
Mirror, mirror on the wall
Who made the mold and
Forced us all to crawl inside it
I'll wear what fits
But I would never ask for this.

There he stands
Head in his hands
His pain is something
They can't even comprehend.

Mirror, mirror on the wall
Which one of us is the fairest of them all
Well I know it can't be me,
For I have wires in my teeth.
Mirror, mirror on the wall
Who made the mold and
Forced us all to crawl inside it
I'll wear what fits
But I would never ask for this.

Your words should bring me to my knees
But I was born for this.
I didn't choose my life
Or where I belong
But I'm not the monster here.
