Track Name: Revolution
Hot flashes go to cold
As the new morphs into the old
Going in rotation
Cyclical creation
And as time repeats
I am forced to admit defeat
Because I cannot destroy
What I cannot control

And as the weak combat the strong
Revolution is our fighting song
And some may fight for what is wrong
But at least the fighting makes us strong

Suffering for the soul
Is what makes us whole
Pain chisels features
On the marble life
Blowtorch confessions
We learn a lesson
Through only pain
Through pain is the truth

And as the weak combat the strong
Revolution is our fighting song
And some may fight for what is wrong
But at least the fighting makes us strong

And as the weak combat the strong
Revolution is our fighting song
And some may fight for what is wrong
But at least the fighting makes us strong
Track Name: Get Out
You were the sour taste in my throat
My poison without an antidote
You were my addiction to my dismay
I just couldn’t get you away
I felt so committed, trapped and ensnared
You told me that you loved but you never cared
You say you want me back don’t torture me
You know that could only bring us misery

Did it ever occur to you that maybe I’m happier this way
Did it ever occur to you that we were just gonna get thrown away
Did it ever occur to you that things weren’t working
Thanks for the time, I’m so sick of your lies, why don’t you
Just get out of my life
I don’t know why I let you crawl your way inside
You were my own personal parasite
Sucking all my blood, sucking me dry
Sometimes I wonder why I even try
Even now you expect so much from me
I don’t owe you anything
Your pretentious eyes they make me sick
This is my life why don’t you get out of it.

Did it ever occur to you that maybe I’m happier this way
Did it ever occur to you that we were just gonna get thrown away
Did it ever occur to you that things weren’t working
Thanks for the time, I’m so sick of your lies, why don’t you
Just get out of my life

Don’t you tell me
I was ever wrong
You are the real monster
Look at what you’ve done

Did it ever occur to you that maybe I’m happier this way
Did it ever occur to you that we were just gonna get thrown away
Did it ever occur to you that things weren’t working
Thanks for the time, I’m so sick of your lies, why don’t you
Just get out of my life
Track Name: Liar's Throne
Right about now
You probably think I hate you
That I can’t stand you
That you only bring me down
And I hate to say that that’s mostly true
You knew just what to say
What to stick your knife into
On that cold December night
At the end of last year
You told me everything
That I didn’t wanna hear
So now the question stands
Are you satisfied
Did you get what you wanted
Don’t worry I’ll be fine

And when you think that you know a guy
When you think you can trust someone

Suddenly you find something stolen from inside
All your good intentions are thrown out with your pride
A crown of thorns on your liars throne
When you find yourself all alone
Finally
I don’t blame this on myself
I’ve realized
that you were at fault
And I can be selfish
But can’t we all
With our own big heads
And our own downfalls
All those words of yours
I took to heart
You can take them to hell
They can sit in the dark

And when you think that you know a guy
When you think you can trust someone

Suddenly you find something stolen from inside
All your good intentions are thrown out with your pride
A crown of thorns on your liars throne
When you find yourself all alone

Suddenly you find something stolen from inside
All your good intentions are thrown out with your pride
A crown of thorns on your liars throne
When you find yourself all alone
Suddenly you find something stolen from inside
All your good intentions are thrown out with your pride
A crown of thorns on your liars throne
When you find yourself all alone
Track Name: Restless
Too many nights this week
I’ve dreamt of sorrow bittersweet
A thorn in my side an ache in my neck
And after the usual toss and turn
I’m left uneasy and concerned
If there wasn’t a hole in me
Then maybe I could think straight

Breaking down oh not again waking up
Give it a rest give it a rest
Falling apart oh not again waking up
Why is it always me

Sleep taunts me why can’t I be free
The Sandman seldom do I see
I’m running in circles and I’m running out of breathe
I’m driving myself crazy looking for some rest

You’d think after all this time that maybe I’d have some peace of mind
Something close something to hold
But still I have nothing still I feel the same
There’s steel on my bones and ice in my veins
If I didn’t feel so dead inside then maybe I could fall asleep tonight

Breaking down oh not again waking up
Give it a rest give it a rest
Falling apart oh not again waking up
Why is it always me

Sleep taunts me why can’t I be free
The Sandman seldom do I see
I’m running in circles and I’m running out of breathe
I’m driving myself crazy looking for some rest

Please give me comfort please give me peace
I’m running in circles and I feel like a freak

Breaking down oh not again waking up
Give it a rest give it a rest
Falling apart oh not again waking up
Why is it always me

Sleep taunts me why can’t I be free
The Sandman seldom do I see
I’m running in circles and I’m running out of breathe
I’m driving myself crazy looking for some rest
Track Name: Apathy & Sympathy
I’ve grown numb to everything you say
I just keep breathing and sighing it away
And there’s no pleasure when your living life to die
Lost inside yourself and lost in your mind

And my eyes are open to what’s ahead
We’re all just living life until we’re dead

Does it even matter Does it stay same
Why exert the effort it’s such a pain
Apathy is always outspoken
Sympathy remains unnoticed
Does it even matter does it stay this way
Why even talk what do you say
Apathy is always outspoken
Sympathy remains unnoticed

I can’t remember your name or your face
But I can slightly remember just how you taste
Another façade with another one night stand
To prove to this world that I’m the man

And my eyes are open to what’s ahead
We’re all just living life until we’re dead

Does it even matter does it stay the same
Why exert the effort it’s such a pain
Apathy is always my best friend
Sympathy still seems like a trend
Does it even matter does it stay this way
Why even talk what do you say
Apathy is always outspoken
Sympathy remains unnoticed

I live in a world where people don’t care
Where people don’t care where people don’t
We live in a world where people don’t care
Where people don’t care where people don’t
Apathy and sympathy are always controlling me I care I care
Apathy and sympathy are always controlling me I care I care

Does it even matter does it stay this way
Why even talk what do you say
Apathy is always outspoken
Sympathy remains unnoticed

Does it even matter does it stay the same
Why exert the effort it’s such a pain
Apathy is always my best friend
Sympathy still seems like a trend
Does it even matter does it stay this way
Why even talk what do you say
Apathy is always outspoken
Sympathy remains unnoticed
