Track Name: Fork in the Road
you press yourself hard against the floor
waging fear without war
now the lamb bare against the word
hides deep within a storm

what would it take to make you do right?
now we stand at a fork in the road, we’re stuck in the middle
what will it take to make you feel right?
it’s like they’re putting a gun to your head at the end of a riddle

so you dare to stand against the wind
to hold the weakness in
this is nowhere for a young slave to-be
you scratch the king of fleas

what would it take to make you do right?
now we stand at a fork in the road, we’re stuck in the middle
Track Name: Made to Suffer
it’s not the climb you notice
it’s not air that fills your burning lungs once at the summit
it’s all the stumbles and falls,
it’s the betrayals, mis-fucking-calculations of expectation

why are we made to suffer?
why oh why
why do we choose a master?
why oh why

all that i’ve needed so far
came in the form of burning questions, not answers
there’s no achievement no high
without suspicion drilling tunnels through my brain; it’s still the same

why are we made to suffer?
why oh why
why do we choose a master?
why oh why

the seam sewn tight in pulsing red
the crossroad marked in ink across each head
a trinity of crystal tombs returns the light
i ask myself each night…why?

all that i’ve needed so far
came in the form of burning questions, not answers
no achievement no high
without suspicion drilling tunnels through my brain
Track Name: The Good Fight
you’ve got a secret, tell me what it is
i want to know how to breath underwater
i’m fighting luck, fighting common taste
i’m at the end of a short leash but i’ll keep running
still choking, still passing out

we fight the good fight
we turn it up, that’s all
we build it up to tear it down every night
we fight the good fight
we turn it up, that’s all
we build it up to tear it down tear it down tear it down

if there’s a pot of gold tell me where it is
how do you pay for your sons and your daughters?
i’ll light it up, all the time you waste
i’m at the end of a short leash but i’ll keep running
still choking, still passing out

i see the exit got no time for walking through

we walk the plank because we want to
i’m gonna take it on the chin
you drop your anchor if you want to
i’m gonna bleed until the end

we fight the good fight
we turn it up, that’s all
we build it up to tear it down every night
we fight the good fight
we turn it up, that’s all
we build it up to tear it down tear it down tear it down
Track Name: Breaking Apart
you’re running hard from beasts still forming
you are the prey of dark flocks swarming
you are now just an interpretation
the fading sound of an unknown station
i’ll curl up alone with a wound that won’t heal...
well that’s the price i’ll pay

i’m not breaking apart
my evil dies slowly
i’ll tell you what you want to hear
then i’m walking away from here
…you know this

feel the space between our bodies
now filling up as the light is changing
i played your heart like a bleeding organ
it stained my hands so i can see this burden
you are now just an interpretation
the fading sound of an unknown station
i’ll curl up alone with a wound that won’t heal...
well that’s the price i’ll pay

i’m not breaking apart
my evil dies slowly
i’ll tell you what you want to hear
then i’m walking away
…you know this

how can you stop without knowing
where an open door takes you?
when you stop where you’re going
you are what you settle for
Track Name: Car Fire
i set it alight
ignoring the shine
this oily heart is so cold
i’m mapping a way
for getting my fill
this highway light is bright still

i hear you’re “living for today”
you’re gonna "float this endless summer out"
and when your genius fades away, and it will
i’m gonna burn your endless summer down

i’m grinding it out
and rolling away
so how can you be so sure
you’ll see it again
across the sky
why do you think it glows red?

i hear you’re “living for today”
you’re gonna "float this endless summer out"…

so you say.
but it's just not real, these ships you sail away on
the only way
is to grab the wheel on fire wide awake
