Track Name: Fallout
Look at you
Oh what have you done
These actions of yours have nearly killed someone
Why are you trying to get away?
Her bones break your conscience
I think you should stay

But why would I stay when it was not my fault
You saw what happened, let this happen
Forever and ever, this thought in my mind
This guilt sets my temper while rage claims the throne

So I run
Run far away
I’ll cut my own hands and feet to escape
And I know this house ain’t a home
I’m broken and bleeding

We watched you through the darkest nights
It haunted us, but we need your advice
We have a problem with playing nice
You’ll be living with us…smile
Listen up, she fights for attention I can’t give
He is withdrawn
And she don’t talk anymore

So I run, run far away
I’ll cut my own hands and feet to escape
And I know this house ain’t a home
I’m broken and bleeding
I feel all alone

Take them to the roof
Make them watch
Push her off the edge
Make them watch

So I run
Run far away
I’ll cut my own hands and feet to escape
And I know this house ain’t a home
I’m broken and bleeding

We should have said more, but we didn’t say more
Track Name: Maverick
Take a scalpel, sort my insides
Stab at my lungs, drain what’s warm
Filled with winter, sew me up, make me yours

Look in its eyes
It’s what we wanted
Look at its face
It’s what we needed

You built me up and you gave me a name
Hard wired yourself to the center of my eyes
Had my brain soaking in chemicals
But you never knew I would be different than you

You’re in my blood stream anchoring sedatives, inducing sleep
You’re scaling my spine, broke in my thought life
Fixing my dreams and guarding my wake

You love a part of me and call it the whole
Rejecting passion in me that makes me feel full
Guilting me of what I do
Like acid on my skin you bite to break through

You built me up and you gave me a name
Hard wired yourself to the center of my eyes
Had my brain soaking in chemicals
But you never knew I would be different than you

Hands tied down, gas in my lungs, mouth sewed shut, eyes pried open.
Voices close, can’t understand them
Until they scream in my ears

You built me up and you gave me a name
Hard wired yourself to the center of my eyes
Had my brain soaking in chemicals
But you never knew I would be different than you
I would be different than you

You do not own me
You do not feel what I feel
Track Name: War Room
You almost died
Flanked at the left
Look to the right
The sun blinds my eyes
There has to be more

As I awake from nightmares I see you next to me
You sit up and listen so carefully

Please help me
Held hostage again
I wish I was dead
Wishing I was dead
There has to be more

As I awake from nightmares I see you next to me
You sit up and listen so carefully
Speaking softly, assuring me, so comforting

Digging graves by myself
Dirty and alone
Pain felt so real
Wake up

This is an ambush
Mortar ahead
You better find a friend, or you’re better off dead
Fighting a battle, lose every time
Against myself I come undone

As I awake from nightmares I see you next to me
You sit up and listen so carefully
Speaking softly, assuring me, so comforting

This is a landslide
Bombs up ahead
You better find a friend or you’re better off dead
Track Name: Oasis
Sand on my feet
Burning my skin
I need shade or I will surely die

Searching for what I can’t find
When I arrive, nothing but more distance to go
Desire’s dead

I’ve been crawling through deserts, searching in vain
I’ve been feeling for nothing
It all is the same

The journey doesn’t end
It keeps me until I’m dead
Water up ahead
Getting closer

Searching for what I can’t find
When I arrive, nothing but more distance to go
Desire’s dead

I’ve been crawling through deserts, searching in vain
I’ve been feeling for nothing
It all is the same

I don’t know if I can take anymore
This wasn’t worth it.

Snakes around me
Vultures in flight
Waiting for their prey
Waiting for the dead

Searching for nothing, searching in vain

I’ve been crawling through deserts, searching in vain
I’ve been feeling for nothing
It all is the same
Track Name: Shoreline
I’m long gone, hopeless and frowned upon
I can’t swim back

Water rises in my head
I start to think when I’m alone
My mind is an ocean
No one will save me, but You
And as the level rises
Rescue me

I’m far from
Too far from shore
No matter what I do, I drown

Rot in the sea
Is that the plan?
I swam out here
I can only blame myself

Water rises in my head
I start to think when I’m alone
My mind is an ocean
No one will save me, but You
And as the level rises
I give myself to You
Can’t be contained by a shore
Rescue me

I will drown here
I can’t move the ocean
Voices in my head
When I’m alone I tread

Pride makes waves of doubt
And in my wake, I feel alone

Water rises in my head
I start to think when I’m alone
My mind is an ocean
No one will save me, but You
And as the level rises
Rescue me
Can’t be contained by a shore
