Winds carry me Guide me to the depths Through the sunbeams, tranquility Dear mystery Hide your sympathy I’ve uncovered all I need Freely I cease Drowning in the ink No need to remember me My quill’s sheathed, finally

Alarms that disturb the sublime, chime Bells toll eternal Upset in earnest atrophy, tapeworms feed Equivocation now repeats Please don’t leave us We don’t need much Come now, join us Loneliness lost Extroverted noble Introverted thief Destinies decided One’s for all to quench his thirst, unless the other ends him first Extroversion, noble Introversion, greed Forced reciprocation The fiends still wrench the crown I seek, ventriloquists’ hyperbole Please leave me be Why can't you relieve me from Bleeding niceties Reclusive peace Sleeping happily Knowing this world's paused for me Cold nightscape I admire Stay here while I lie Awakening postponed Outside me let flow what’s duly owed [Morgan and Brandon Guitar/Keyboard Unison] [Brendon Guitar Solo] Deadening sorrows Invigorate alone In my burnt out hollow Decrepit growth My dead slumber Expelling penetrants My prime substrate Must be condoned A drowning wretch in flooded halls Please leave me be Why can't you relieve me from Bleeding niceties Reclusive peace Sleeping happily Knowing this world's paused for me All your needs, deaden my ecstasy I deplore you Fiends of the crown, malignant strain Sickening Evil nears A virulent catastrophe In me I’m shutting down inside

Bandwagon’s going out of control Pliant minds, oh so impressionable You’ll hear my laughs with a Doppler effect When you are thrown out And your skin peels off against pavement Try as I might to go numb Great is the grating noise of constant conform I’m so fucking tired, fucking drained and bored The followers keep gallivanting on and on and on and on Allies Stop chasing the echoes you find Independent minds won’t blinded by the times Collide Suppress the urge to unify Let differences thrive, we all can be unalike You will see Come fragile scenesters I’ve got a lesson in store Over the rail we go today Somebody’s suicidal decadence Undulating, aggregating, culture’s spine is elongating Foil dim believers Let’s bait them into a trap Show them the people’s infant and Then fucking eat it like a maniac Open your eyes to the harm you’re inflicting To your own mind by acting without thinking Trivialize, realize that your thieving Empty inside, misaligned bottom feeding In my perfect dream I cut off your tongue and cast it into ether Rotting hold escaped One last time Plague so contagious it’s outright outrageous Condemning us to copy graves, mimes and slaves You will never see the light of day again Cure, try your hand at some true independence Sever your condolences for the carbon copies at war And retrieve threads of life you’ve shunned so long Violent hell [Brendon Guitar Solo] Cosmic flames [Morgan Guitar Solo] Lack of self [Brendon Guitar Solo] Melt away [Morgan Guitar Solo] Viewing the world through a jaded lens Expels the venom in your veins Stifle what could become Entire nations laid to waste Allies Stop chasing the echoes you find Independent minds won’t blinded by the times Collide Suppress the urge to unify Let differences thrive, we all can be unalike You will see Summon the strength Keep all the cancerous trends at bay It’s not the you that made me I’m my own society Detach from mad monotony I’ll define variety Freed, now be not afraid, to feed off your own desires Dead vagrant scenesters They’ll fail this lesson no more Over the rail they went today Mortician’s latest trending decadence Overheated, truth depleted, culture’s spine has been deleted Foiled late believers Consumed by our favorite trap Diced up in blissful suffrage Entranced with life free from this mono trash Excavating, re-creating a culture less aggravating

Come to my aid My wit's end has begun My head demands three bleeding hands spite me What's done is done Can't be outrun Symptoms become Your own outcome Tightening restraints are sure To kindle angry wildfires’ uprise Riot Condescension wrests from you Your final shred of well-to-do spirit Unnerve Dominant ways Suffocating passion Tyrants arraign Castigate and worsen Patience faded long ago I've had it up to here Authoritarian's size I can limit Weakened by self-confidence Fearing self-preservation Oppression’s mine to divide, divide [Brendon Guitar Solo] Indebted phase My wit's end has revolved Around dread I try to defend against Kill for peace of mind Your hate errodes My skin cracks In seeps cold despair In the end you’ll be Left without power and dying to leave Death may set you free But demons you’ve made are coming to feed Master’s home Razed in line with the omen Final debt Paid, eternally suffer Patience faded long ago I've had it up to here Authoritarian's size I can limit Weakened by self-confidence Fearing self-preservation Oppression’s mine to divide, divide Repression’s mine to deny, deny Comforted by my rise, my rise

Why does happily Ever after Need to be so fake Let’s re-enable Ties less stable Disavow the show Human union’s Disguised itself As rings helping us to prove our wealth Rites and romance Trading blows With what is right and rational Rites not so rational Messenger At the altar of it all Can’t you speak of the artificial Why does happily Ever after Need to be so fake Let’s re-enable Ties less stable Disavow the show Cut this shit out Burn the aisles down Ash Desecrate the day Bearer Cowers in terror Nuptial cleansing Bloodsoaked ending Matron’s dishonor Dead Maid of holocaust Tell us Why are you so jealous Your behaviors heinous Your time to be famous You’re a mindless cog You kept the veil I let wither away I’ve kept the rose you love dry You shed a tear that the lace holds at bay I’ve let the rose you loved die Behold Your love Sealed in Wreckage Can’t you See your Gross Misdealings Look at what We have become Hollow souls with Needs to conform Relationships To outdated Practices that just Mask the truths Guiding us to Each other the Way they ought to Forlorn groupthink in ignorance Can’t you see beyond its majesty Why so smitten by this travesty [Morgan Guitar Solo] Deadly endorphins Tempting the whores in Pressurization Caught in a tailspin Wretched communion Public it’s fooling Why does mankind maintain sanctimony Why does happily Ever after Need to be so fake Let’s re-enable Ties less stable Disavow the show Tell us Why are you so jealous Your behaviors heinous Why have you succumbed

I can cleanse you Of hostile truths Calm your screaming Hope’s long since ceased [Brandon Keyboard Solo]

Welcome to a brand new world, opportunity Have a seat and look around, perpetuity Chronically, you’ve been blind mediocrity But I’m wise to the guise of complacency Your ambitions bred this plight Your ambitions ran in fright Quit Rationalize and give thanks to the stars You’ve accomplished nothing Cause you’re human waste Who gives thanks To the fucks in the suits who get off fucking you Sick Sick is the mindset of being blessed in contentment Leads to ignorant contempt To further the argument that you can’t Be, do or have what it is you deserve. Corporate Coffin Voluntarily Six feet deep and undiscovered Dead dreams Rotten Personality Plagued by racing rats unpoisoned Dull repetition Needs revolution No apprehension Obliteration Everyone’s insane Everyday’s the same Synchronized yet ill-defined Jeopardized life Shot down in your prime Will you choose to die I have taken my First step to goodbye There’s a way out of here Sound of mind, see it clear Liquified, lost and found Time to bow out [Morgan Guitar Solo] [Morgan and Brandon Guitar/Keyboard Unison] [Brandon Keyboard Solo] [Morgan and Brandon Guitar/Keyboard Unison] Everyone’s insane Everyday’s the same Synchronized yet ill-advised Jeopardized life So, you ignorant rats You’ll stay scratching the floors of prison So severe is the penalty for not embracing The anarchy’s beautiful and devastating potential to grant Liberation from the dead end you created and perpetuate Life led Without risk Time not savored Just finished All the years All the warning signs All ignored Final resting place

Suddenly it’s dark Thickening clouds approaching Grayer than I’ve ever seen before Then where stars have gone New ones growing slowly Glimmers reeling me toward the shore But we know None can go Here we are Boundary’s near Tempting us with freedom Glowing shapes drawn clear Features, vibrant, blooming Soothing as the clouds now disappear Sunlight bathes the soil Warming all surroundings But this bliss can only last so long No one wanders free All get turned away How can others Claim this Mother Earth Caged by you I’m on the edge I’m on the edge of truth Here’s proof Your claims that conscious states belong to you All these lines we’ve drawn Are bars of cells we’ve spawned Let me through I’m but a man Just like the rest of you Consumed By arbitrary needs to rule this zoo Comfort those employed To hide what we exploit [Morgan Guitar Solo] Glowing shapes so clear Features fully blooming Free now that the clouds have disappeared Sunlight floods the soil Life’s embraced my footing Can’t we just try keeping this around Glowing shapes drawn clear The shadowed lines blur with time, resign Everything is mine to see Exorcise mortal chains So sail with me, no need to be afraid How can others claim this How can others claim this Earth

Prophecies, evil things Painting pictures of fates and escapes’ offspring inert Illusions should fuel us to transform our tragedy into actions Skies rife with grandeur Innocent dreams, but Indolence let them Come crashing down Seething scorn See nothing born Constant schemes Nothing proceeds Skies rife with grandeur Innocent dreams, but Indolence let them Come crashing down A unit of progress Is hard for some, but Without the effort We’re promised none [Brandon Guitar Solo] Take with bloodshot eyes Your well earned prize Feats remarkable, admirable Share with static lives Achievement’s pride We must spare them from depression Skies rife with grandeur Innocent dreams, but Indolence let them Come crashing down A unit of progress Is hard for some, but Without the effort We’re promised none None

Have you met the psychopath Living in the trees Filthy old robotic bat, no shred of decency Misanthrope in scum and rust Monstrous tendencies Reckon he is Beckoning a forced lobotomy Come with me We’ll teach him, see That old pathetic crock Raid his shack and pummel him Until he cannot walk Forever watching Forever haunts me Insensate being Addicted to the glow Pity plans so fatuous Derived from these poor youth Wonder, should I boil them Or maybe turn them loose Or instead, to clear my head I’ll take them to the booth Trap them there, till they’re aware Of this shut-in's truths All I see is all I feel I filter out the room Unknown warmth that speaks to me when living through the reel All I see is all that heals I edit out my gloom Unsung hero dislocates and disbelieves what’s real Unsung hero dislocates and disbelieves what’s real Undreamed of Scenes I’ve sought Flicker fusion threshold deviant Sensations Wished upon I’d trade my projections To know why The frames’ sensations My heart’s foundations Contamination Illuminating woe [Brandon Guitar Solo] Surrogate medium Transfers ad nauseam Bound to roam impotent Neural lands endlessly Undreamed of Scenes I’ve sought Flicker fusion threshold deviant Sensations Wished upon I’d trade my projections To know why Undreamed of empathy Flickering lights Retrain me

Softly breathing Inhaling grief, exhale fear Keep me safe, alone I cower Tears run dry, it’s been an hour now The pain I observe Makes me want to submerge For I, recreant, Do deserve The world, I surmise Disturbed due to my lies For I, miscreant, Can’t reverse, this curse Fractured breathing Inhaling brief, exhale life Keep me safe, alone I cower Tears run dry, it’s been an hour now The pain I endure It ought surely unnerve For I, miscreant, Do deserve The world, I despise Disturbed fortress of lies For my requiem, I preserve, this curse My hollow hopelessness Release me from the depths I beg you, nothingness Please give me one last breath [Brendon and Morgan Guitar Solos]

Never ends, chromamania Flickers and changes Ever toxic, serendipitous Mind rearranges Heaven, a troubled abyss Bleed interruptions Hell languishing in dissonance Seeding destruction Stained erratics sheltered by the cliffs Shattered and bludgeoned Step forth into oblivion Splinters I’ve been shattered into splinters within Further, harder, faster Spirals Driven inward without an end in sight Threading time through needles Burdened life of the chameleon A purgatory Conflicting selves to each indifferent Head on collision now Means tarnished Ends carnage Deeds harmless Feats savage Shapeshifting night Transmorph’s delight To cultivate Is to betray Time’s embrace I’ve long escaped Conflicts rise, crashing tides Songs erase the bitter taste Dreaded days laid to waste I define affluence meritocratically Arrogance, it has no place Humble race toward the stage Assimilate the energy Entering monstrous craze Channelling anger and hatred and jealousy Dead in concept End of life force Now I've reached the Blackened summit Activate hysteria Masses rage, chaos plays Aggravate the sanguine haze Mindlessly convulsing Break out insanity is what we will always crave Shapeshifting night Transmorph’s delight To cultivate Is to betray [Brandon Keyboard Solo] [Morgan Guitar Solo] Glowing shapes appear Emptiness diluting Change propelling me toward the shore Sunlight bathes my skin Winds restore my breathing Golden sparkles flicker through the sky Glowing shapes so dear (Shapes so dear) Nothingness is losing Change invigorates my very core Life’s unlocked the gates That I dare to enter (I've entered) (Golden sparkles flicker) Golden feathers falling from the sky
