Track Name: Bitter
Every time you walk in the door you
Wanna start a fight
Slap me down till I hit the floor now
What gives you the right?

You think I'm reckless, yeah
You think I'm reckless
Do you now?
You think I'm evil, yeah
You think I'm evil
Show you how

You're just bitter
You can't give in and you won't let go
You're so bitter
You're breaking up and you've lost control
When nothing goes your way
And no one wants your change
Everyone thinks you're insane
You're just bitter

Riding lines till you think you're blind
You gotta have your way
Spend your nights in a thousand lights cuz
You don't make mistakes

You think I'm reckless, yeah
You think I'm reckless
Do you now?
You think I'm evil, yeah
You think I'm evil
Show you how

You're just bitter
You can't give in and you won't let go
You're so bitter
You're breaking up and you've lost control
When nothing goes your way
And no one wants your change
Everyone thinks you're insane
You're just bitter

You're just bitter
You can't give in and you won't let go
You're so bitter
You're breaking up and you've lost control
When nothing goes your way
And no one wants your change
Everyone thinks you're insane
You're just bitter
Track Name: The Hitcher
I can only take
So much in your cage
Blood from a stone
Won't run down my grave
You forgot I existed
I'll find a way out
With the things you were saying
I'm having no doubt

Dig a little deeper
Into the ground
Dig a little deeper
Don't make a sound, yeah

Gotta get out
Or I'm done
Gotta get out
Got to run

Ghosts in the road
Led me to you
I trusted the hitcher
I had no clue
When you stuck in the needle
To my surprise
The world started fading
The light hit my eyes

Dig a little deeper
Into the ground
Dig a little deeper
Don't make a sound, yeah

Gotta get out
Or I'm done
Gotta get out
Got to run
RUN
Track Name: Days of Resdaynia
Power, infuse it
Help me to murder it once more
Older than music
Come to me, dancing at the core
Agent of western regimes
A prisoner washed ashore
Deign you to service your lord
The one you betrayed before

Heaven through violence
Watching the pylons topple down
Harmonic silence
Shatter away synthetic crown
Having through fire and war
My sundering effigy
Infinite dreaming and wake
Pay mind to this elegy

My deaf moons, orbit me
Sing and burn to set me free
My deaf moons, orbit me
Written in uncertainty
My deaf moons, orbit me
Sing and burn to set me free
Bring a light, bring a star
Bring you to an ancient sea
Track Name: Writer's Block
My nervous system doubts, every word
Dunno what I want to say, anymore
Nothing every seems to fit
Will I ever get over it?
My confidence is wiped, cross the floor

Before you go and fall to pieces
Can you tell me what you really want?
I've been doing my best for nothing
I've been trying to fight this writer's block

In procrastination I'm paralyzed
Perfectionism kills compromise
I turn to who, what, where and why
I can't be satisfied
In a bigger hole than I realize

Before you go and fall to pieces
Can you tell me what you really want?
I've been doing my best for nothing
I've been trying to fight this writer's block

Before you go and fall to pieces
Can you tell me what you really want?
I've been doing my best for nothing
I've been trying to fight this writer's block
Track Name: Find Yourself
Mary Sue, get on your shoes
We're going out to dance
All the boys, they laughed at you
You never had your chance

You've been waiting, so long
To find yourself
You've been waiting, so long
To find yourself

Come with me, there's sights to see
The moon is shining bright
Keep on moving, dance with me
The city's ours tonight

You've been waiting, so long
To find yourself
You've been waiting, so long
To find yourself

Through the clubs, the sights and scenes
I'll show you what it's like
To be the one you've always been
You know it feels so right

You've been waiting, so long
To find yourself
You've been waiting, so long
To find yourself

Mary Sue, get on your shoes
We're going out to dance
All the boys, they laughed at you
You never had your chance

You've been waiting, so long
To find yourself
You've been waiting, so long
To find yourself
Track Name: Our Mother
Who in their right mind
Would do this to their mother?
Stripping her of everything
She'd give to us for cover
Poisoning her every way
Keeping her down to suffer
Is this what we really want?
We don't have no other

You're gonna work her till she's dead
You're gonna work her till she's dead
You're gonna work her till she's dead
Yeah

Even though they're dug too much
They keep on digging deeper
Rotting future lives away
They wouldn't think twice either
When you see the picture now
It couldn't get much clearer
Can they be the ones to change?
Before the end gets nearer

You're gonna work her till she's dead
You're gonna work her till she's dead
You're gonna work her till she's dead
Come on
Track Name: Man In the Mirror
I wrecked my hands at my job this week
I'm grinding through the blisters on the back of my feet
My back is aching, can't get enough sleep
The cost of living ain't ever been cheap
My clothes just don't seem to fit me right
There are holes in my shoes, living in plain sight
My mind is weary and I'm fading out fast
The smile on my face never seems to last

Look for
The man in the mirror
He wants you to believe
You can go on
He's been searching
For someone to talk to
He's been hoping for a friend
For far too long

When I get home I can't do too much
I'm tired and empty and I'm out of touch
The things I'm doing I can't respect
It's the only option I seem to have left
When i get out I'm gonna be someone
I'm gonna see the world till my days are done
Every day I'm fighting just to make the grade
Of another hour and another day

Look for
The man in the mirror
He wants you to believe
You can go on
He's been searching
For someone to talk to
He's been hoping for a friend
For far too long
He's been hoping for a friend
For far too long
He's been hoping for a friend
For far too long
Track Name: Monday Morning
Monday morning
You've got to get up
Get out of bed
Sleepy head
Monday morning
You've got to get dressed
Get in your car
You know it's quite far

Wake up, go to work
Come back home, fall asleep
Wake up, go to work
Come back home, fall asleep

Monday morning
You might just break down
It's too much for you
What can you do
Monday morning
You might just work late
Losing your mind
In overtime

Wake up, go to work
Come back home, fall asleep
Wake up, go to work
Come back home, fall asleep

When you're driving home you don't care what you've done
You eat your dinner, sit down and you're gone
Time for bed
You lay your head
A few hours, and you're awakened by this song

Tuesday morning
You've got to get up
Get out of bed
Sleepy head
Tuesday morning
You've got to get dressed
Get in your car
You know it's quite far

Wake up, go to work
Come back home, fall asleep
Wake up, go to work
Come back home, fall asleep
Track Name: Where Do We Go From Here?
Well I know
That the world means nothing
But I think
It could count for something
Many faces
Are looking down
Many places
Have killed their clowns

It's so hard to find
Any kind of time
To do the things
You really want
How can we decide
What we want to find
When we try to climb
And just get lost
Where do we go from here?

Well I've heard
That we've lost all feeling
Sometimes words
Seem to lose their meaning
When you've heard them
So many times before
They seem to leave you
Always wanting more

It's so hard to find
Any kind of time
To say the things
You really want
How can we decide
What we want to find
When we try to climb
And just get lost
Where do we go from here?

You have to make a choice
You have to make a choice
You have to make a choice

Well I know
That the world means nothing
Track Name: We've Come Too Far
They'd have you believe
That there is no point
In pushing on
The land no longer breathes
And nothing grows
All hope is gone

Are you listening to yourself?
Cuz nothing hasn't changed
Are you listening to yourself?
We can fight it
We can fight it

We've come too far
To go back now
It's the only thing
That I can tell myself
We've come too far
To go back now
To go back now

What would we achieve?
If we just gave up
And fell apart
Would you question your beliefs?
In what's possible
And what is not

Are you listening to yourself?
Cuz nothing hasn't changed
Are you listening to yourself?
We can fight it
We can fight it

We've come too far
To go back now
It's the only thing
That I can tell myself
We've come too far
To go back now
To go back now

We've come too far
To go back now
It's the only thing
That I can tell myself
We've come too far
To go back now
To go back now
