Track Name: Sick Sick Sick
I wish I could stay a world away
From everything you do
I'll put pressure on this open wound
while your bombshell drops on cue
On better days I'm blown away
On worse days I'm still blue
I'm not holding out for something new

And I get the feeling it's me you're deceiving
And I get the feeling you

Don't ask questions
Don't dictate
Don't want to think about we're through
High and writhing on a blade of self-inflicted deja vu
And I understand the small steps back
The half-hints at the truth
But if I'm coasting on the moment what's the use?

And I get the feeling it's me you're deceiving
And I get the feeling you don't
Track Name: Think I'm Like You
Every day it's a catastrophe
When you say that you want it
Rock bottom and I sank so low
That I'm running out of habits

Can't blame your worldly ways
For all those sleepless nights
The countless hours where
You tried to make wrongs right
For now I'll take a back seat and hope everything's all right

Everyday it's a catastrophe
when you're high and you're on it
Pushed buttons and you cried so hard
There's no way you'll ever have it

There's something simple
About the way cold truth stings
All those twisted knotted fingers
and the godless mutterings
Lets take from this that one thing – there's no way we'll ever win

I think I like you
Yeah, I'm like you
But you're thinking like someone else
I think I like you
Yeah, I'm like you
But you think you're like someone else
Track Name: Fist Canyon
Paving propaganda
Spin doctored true belief
The threat became hand-tailored
Spreading social entropy

Mighty Morphin' Stranger Danger
Track Name: Constance
I'll try explain but it's no use
So let's pull the plug and call this truce
It's cold outside and I can't stand the rain
Is it by the line of mild misuse
Too close for comfort self-abuse
If the boat rocks now then who've I got to blame?

Every time I'm on my own
Every time I'm wide awake
The pressure's always on
and it's more than my mind can take
Every time I'm all alone
Even when I fall asleep
I just can't shake this feeling
You're gagging me constantly

If I sail away I'll end marooned
A castaway life, all-consumed
You'll never ever give the time of day
If island life is all too soon
I'll pause for breath if you want me to
Just give me chance to think straight on the way

Every time I'm on my own
Every time I'm wide awake
The pressure's always on
and it's more than my mind can take

Every time I'm all alone
Even when I fall asleep
I just can't shake this feeling
You're gagging me constantly

I keep on thinking
You're a constant
Only constant when I try
to shake these creeping
solemn whispers
That keep playing on my mind
I guess it's fairer if I
Bite the bullet now
and toe the line
And say everything is fine

When you're gagging me constantly
You're still gagging me constantly
Track Name: Valavanides
Every day I'm feeling much the same
Failure to eradicate the crippling sense of shame

What would I say?

Every day it feels much the same
Consequence of circumstance
The things I overcame
Track Name: Born Bitter
Double or nothing
You're searching for something
If hell is a place
then I'm paving a way
All of a sudden
The stench becomes rotten
The gravity kicks
like a boot to the face

Carry the weight of the world on your shoulders
Keep pushing forward
For better or worse
Search for a logic in all you accomplish
But never deny it's a win some, lose some world

Sudden disruption
Profound deconstruction
You control your own life
And seal your own fate
All of a sudden
You're screaming for something
You're wrapping your reason
in fistfuls of hate

Carry the weight of the world on your shoulders
Keep pushing forward
For better or worse
Search for a logic in all you accomplish
But never deny it's a win some, lose some world

Gonna keep on searching for a wider world
