Track Name: Lies Animals Tell
Sharp pain - yea I felt it.
Disdain - I’m beside it.
You dream about being alone.
Follow said the leader.
Hello father figure.
You dream about me on my own.

Shed the toxic synergy.
I’ll endorse what I believe.
Careful who you grow to trust.
Tunnel vision pride.
I’ll turn my back since you're promising a spot for us to shine with you.
Center stage and empty view.

Distraught - temporary fallout.
I wanted me to step away.
I questioned everybody.
Sharp pain - I embrace it.
Disdain - now I want it.
I need to be the one who goes.

Shed the toxic synergy.
I’ll endorse what I believe.
Careful who you grow to trust.
Tunnel vision pride.

Actions speak louder than words, and your coup d’état was heard.
Ego death with set this straight but not my faith.
It’s too late.

What is the price of finding gold?
Can it be justified to throw out, pertinent means of how we, all have grown to be here?
And if the plan was to destroy all of the confidence we once had for your discretion, then the goal is accomplished.

Heavy heart transfusion. Vision parallax.
Putrid core infusion without civil acrobats.

Actions speak louder than words, and your coup d’état was heard.
Ego death with set this straight but not my faith.
It’s too late.
Actions speak louder than words, and your coup d’état was heard.
Ego death and you’re awake.
My trust it takes.
It’s too late.
Track Name: Boomerang
I remember as a child looking off of the rooftop.
As I grew the view got lost, but the clouds never seemed to stay.

This yes I know, that my blood maintains its flow, even though I might not. I get caught.
In tunnel vision single minded thoughts.

But the older I became, my view of life would change.
Every lesson that’s worth learning brought me pain.

I hope we get what we deserve.
A little taste of what we were.
I'm learning that nothing gold can stay.
Owning up to our past mistakes.

Now I can say there are times I’ve dodged the blame.
I confess it rolled back, it rolled back.
Like a game
God it made me sick the way it hit when it all came.

For the years that I’ve seen change.
I have gone against the grain.
What goes around comes back around again.

I hope we get what we deserve.
A little taste of what we were.
I'm learning that nothing gold can stay.
Owning up to our past yea.
I hope we get what we deserve.
A little taste of what we were.
Stepping back doesn't make it right.
Standing tall doesn't get you high.

Doesn't get you high.

I forget I forget how the clouds move.
I'm forgetting to view from above.
I forget I forget how the clouds move after all.

I hope we get what we deserve.
A little taste of what we were.
I’m learning that nothing gold can stay.
Owning up to our past mistakes.
Track Name: Misleading the Story
He said words knowing full well are suspect.
Felt the burn in his lower intestine.
I say get past the moment, let it subside.

I don’t know how I did, but I got here.
Candlelit in my mind's eye, but not clear.
I know, I know.
I know the truth is in-between.

I don’t want to feel it so I won’t.
Even when I lose it I'll implode.
Every lie is cyanide - a dose to keep the secret.
I don’t want to feel it so I don’t.

Sad song: I defect to write it.
Dried tears - do your best to hide it.
I can’t handle your face in this moment.
Quick find the exit.
Quick find the exit.

I don’t want to feel it so I won’t.
Even when I lose it I'll implode.
Every lie is cyanide - a dose to keep the secret.
I don’t want to feel it so I don’t.

I don’t care.
I don’t care because they like me better when I did what they wanted.
I don’t care.
I don’t care because I like me better when I am cold and reckless.

Upset and inciting an inner war.
Upset and misleading the story.
Upset and inciting an inner war.
Upset and misleading...

I don’t want to feel it so I won’t.
Even when we lose it I'll implode.
Every lie is cyanide - a dose to keep the secret.
I don’t want to feel it so I don’t.
So I don’t.
Quick find the exit!
