Track Name: At War With Peaceful Behavior
AT WAR WITH PEACEFUL MISBEHAVIOR

The signs are often drifting out in front of you.
You will sit there waiting for something to slap your face.
All I wanted was some air to breathe.
Now I'm looking out if I can find my peace.

So speak thy name
And pray for a dramatic change.
The way things are going I doubt you will find your place.

The signs keep flashing out right in front of you.
You still sit there waiting for something to slap your face.
All I wanted was some air to breathe.
But now I'm looking out if I can find my peace.

So speak thy name
And pray for a dramatic change.
The way things are going I doubt you will find your place.

Waking me up, it's fucking 12 o clock, your cries are not enough.
Wait til the day (THE DAY WHEN WE FIND) we find a better way to heal our misery.

So speak thy name and pray for dramatic changes.

The words you spoke, the words you broke.
The trends you never started.
Your head's held high, you are my spite.
I wish you never started.
So go, bring the change around you!
And see where the fuck it gets you!
Your home is giving nobody hope
And your words are too damn slow.
I wish you'd shut your mouth.
Hoping just slows things down!

So don't come around.
Track Name: Days On Repeat
DAYS ON REPEAT

My shades are closing when the sun comes up
I lost my change,
lost my watch
Well, I seem to have found time on the tower
To the top,
to the top of the hat
From the horizon, we fall to the black
From the horizon, we fall to the black
Well we met at the center but I kept walking
It's so easy to walk away
when I always come back

I'll be damned if I'm stuck on the road
to find my way to you

My shades are closing when the sun comes up
I lost my change, lost my watch
Well, I seem to have found time on the tower
To the top,
to the top of the hat
From the horizon, we fall to the black
From the horizon, we fall to the black
Well we met at the center
but I kept walking
It's so easy to walk away when I always come back

These circles my
feet keep winding in
Are leaving me farther from the beginning
These circles
my feet keep winding in

Are leaving me
Farther from the beginning
And soon
you'll see
I'll never make it 'til the end
You're leaving me
Farther from
the beginning
And soon you'll see
I'll never make it 'til the end

Let's
go!

I let go of the shackles that have me chained up to the ground
Release
any clutches that will mute my sound
My voice is not wearing any
thinner
Nothing's gonna stand in my way where I keep my thoughts
clear

These roads are mine but there's nothing to find

It's a constant
relapse between space and time
Revolutions every second keep ticking
away
It's hard to find a steady frame of mind in this empty place

You're
leaving me
Farther from the beginning
And soon you'll see
I'll never make it
'til the end
You're leaving me
Farther from the beginning
And soon you'll
see
I'll never make it 'til the end
Track Name: Rotting On Carousels With Clones
ROTTING ON CAROUSELS WITH CLONES

Pseudo intellectual socialites
You're too caught up with your human rights
But not strong enough to put up a fight
Pseudo fascist brats
Pretentiousness has you whining for a way back
You'd rather run and I've got your bags packed

Your screams for some redeeming change will never come this day
Cries of hope, tears of difference
Your eyes all melt into a conforming trance
Those sightless eyes expecting to be saved never find their way
Claws at the wall, cursing disgrace
Your nothingness has shown its face

You're walking so tall
You can't break your fall
I'm bringing you down
This pathetic bullshit you brand is at it's end

This is my purpose for screaming
The copycat kids are never leaving
HEY! HEY! Your songs all sound the same
So give it up and obsess over the next trend

You're walking so tall
You can't break your fall
I'm bringing you down
This pathetic bullshit you brand is at it's end

We are not the same
In a perfect world
Although you're still trying
To have your difference heard
Track Name: Elbows & Arrows
ELBOWS & ARROWS

You elitist mother fuckers always talking about the Saturday life
Walking two-faced, holding shamrocks while you're breathing in false glam tonight
I will piss on everyone because I can tonight
By setting up my bluffs to force the fold

I've walked these empty streets that you call home
(Through the entry, out the alleyway)

To see the huts of shit you come from
(Like something I ought to find you in)

Like when I said I'd open your eyes
to a place inside my head
But what's the point of seeing when you're dead

You sit and wait, never separate
from your attaching hipster friends
You contemplate, but you're too afraid
to bring this to an end
I'll chastise, because I've memorized
every single word you said
I'll devastate, never run away
from your empty bullshit threats

I've come to terms that you'll never to learn just to
drop the ball
You keep on struggling something as absent as the asphalt
Time has passed and you make it last like you're some scrapbooking hero
You keep on struggling, there's no way to bring justice to redeem your faults

I'm watching you wash down
You're washing down

I've come to terms that you'll never learn

You sit and wait, never separate
from your attaching hipster friends
You contemplate, but you're too afraid
to bring this to an end
I'll chastise, because I've memorized
every single word you said
I'll devastate, never run away
from your empty bullshit threats
