# Title Duration
1 Play Gone Sovereign
No one’s laughing now… No one’s laughing now…

I’m sullen and sated and you can’t put a price on me

I won’t share this disarray/ I won’t pull these hands away

I need to be chosen and my God, don’t pray for me

So scatter all my ashes when I’m dead

And shatter every legend in my head

If only the committed will survive…

Is anybody here still left alive?
 

THIS IS MINE
 

Come no further- you’ll go too far

I’m running round in circles once again

If you can’t forgive me, I won’t take it very hard

But I won’t make it easy in the end

So scatter all my ashes when I’m dead

And shatter every legend in my head

If only the contented will survive…

Is anybody here still left alive?


THIS IS MINE

THIS IS MINE
 

So scatter all my ashes when I’m dead

And shatter every legend in my head

If only the committed will survive…

Is anybody here still left alive?


THIS IS MINE- MINE-MINE-MINE
04:03
2 Play Absolute Zero
The bloody angle/ the symmetry- your cheap adhesive isn’t holding me

My mouth is a gun I can shoot- I can show you the truth

And I don’t need a reason to lie to you

No pun intended/ no punishment- if I offended you, you needed it

Ideas are the bombs in your mind- a fissure in time

If you don’t have a weapon, you can’t have mine


I can bleed if I want to bleed- I can fail if I feel the need

This face is my last confession- this life… it feels like a prison

 
Oh, I’m not afraid- I’m giving into grievances again

You’re looking at an absolute zero

I’m not the devil, but I won’t be your hero


The catatonic/ the sacrilege- your primadonnas are a privilege

My god has a need to react- it’s as simple as that

It’s better just to settle than face the facts


I can bleed if I want to bleed- I can fail if I feel the need

This face is my last confession- this life… it feels like a prison


Oh, I’m not afraid- I’m giving into grievances again

You’re looking at an absolute zero

I’m not the devil, but I won’t be your hero


One thing that I can’t stand is when the minutes fight the second hand

I’ll waste a lifetime’s worth just to cling to one more day


No fucking quarter/ no premiums- the world is stuck in delirium

Man is a four-letter word- it’s really absurd

The hate isn’t fake it’s just inferred
 

Oh, I’m not afraid- I’m giving into grievances again

I’m down to absolute zero- another zealot with the weight of the fucking world

Oh, I’m not afraid- and I will let you down as I hold you in

You’re looking at an absolute zero

I’m not the devil, but I won’t be your hero
03:49
3 Play A Rumor of Skin
You deleted your evidence. You depleted yourself.

Face down wasn’t good enough. You had to give me your hell.

Not much more inside of me left to lose…

No one hates me quite like you. Let me show you the proof.

 
I don’t mind my own self-loathing, and I don’t need help from you.

I know I’m lonely, but what am I supposed to do?


You believe that you’re innocent. You’re relieving your guilt.

The Jury seems to be deadlocked. Look at the drama you built.

Seems like everyone’s guaranteed damaged truth…

What makes someone hate like you? And is there something to prove?


But I don’t mind my own self-loathing, and I don’t need help from you.

I know I’m lonely, but what am I supposed to do?


Oh, I don’t mind my own self-loathing, and I don’t need help from you.

(I don’t mind my own…)

I know I’m lonely, but what am I supposed to do-

(I don’t want to know…)

-With all my coldest memories of you?

(I won’t give my all…)

I know I’m angry… and I don’t know need help from you

(I don’t want to know…)

4 Play The Travelers, Pt. 1
I think I’m happy

Mostly happy

On a green autumn day

I’m walking lazy

Barely moving

Settle out and fade away


Seems a life is something more than a journey with no end

I just want to lose it all and find myself again

I’m on my own… I’m on my own…


I don’t need a conscience to tell me how I feel

I don’t need these weary eyes to focus on what to conceal

I don’t need anybody to tell me who I am

Blame it on a broken heart- I’m falling apart again
02:26
5 Play Tired
I’m alive in here/ so alive in here/ pulling down a little peace

I’m open wide in here/ slow to rise in here/ saving grace and killing me

You say this only makes me incomplete

I’m canceled out and rendered obsolete

Tell the Mad Chameleon he’s not welcome anymore

I know what I’m looking for…


Somewhere close, somewhere safe

Somewhere I know- I know I’ll never live in chains

The One Is Now Aware

So stay away from me- I’m just too young to care


I can see in here/ I can feel in here/ comatose with common sense

I take my time in here/ somebody get me out of here/ what am I so against?

I just want to watch the whole world burn

Lost a million times and I won’t learn

Show me someone innocent, I’ll show you there’s no proof

I may be gone but I’m no fool…


I’m not close- I’m not safe

I don’t know- don’t know- am I better off in chains?

The One Is Not Aware

So stay away from me- I’m just too young to care


I need somewhere close, somewhere safe

Somewhere I know- I know I’ll never live in chains

The One Is Now Aware

So stay away from me- I’m just too young to care
04:12
6 Play RU486
The pity turns complacent/ the bitter comes in a rush

Nobody needs a hopeless romantic who never sleeps and drinks too much

The fear is unrepentant/ that means there’s nowhere to hide

So draw a breath, and kill my Judas- you’ll never know until you come inside


You are defeatist… forsaken… a jewel in the crown of the sun

Never repeated… or taken… I wouldn’t change a fucking thing that you’ve done


Going Down Alive/ Going Down Alive

Assume Your Nemesis

Going Down Alive/ Going Down Alive

RU486


Another weak contender/ another pound of the nails

The future lies in perfect condition- you can do it if you’re built to fail

I only know solutions/ I’ve never thought of the end

Someone else is closing the casket- another hungry mouth to defend


You are defeated… forbidden… a name at the top of the list

Never related… or stricken… I wouldn’t change a fucking thing about this


Going Down Alive/ Going Down Alive

Assume Your Nemesis

Going Down Alive/ Going Down Alive

RU486?


(YOU) Protector (WON’T) Suspector (FEEL)

The victor is only who is left insane

(YOU) Detractor (DON’T) Subtractor (SEE)

The answer is screaming what you’ll never say


We are demeaning… forever… a world that will never exist

Always repeating… or severed… we wouldn’t change a fucking thing about this


Going Down Alive/ Going Down Alive

Assume Your Nemesis

Going Down Alive/ Going Down Alive

Are You 486?

Going Down Alive/ Going Down Alive

Assume Your Nemesis

Going Down Alive/ Going Down Alive

ARE YOU FOR 86?
04:21
7 Play My Name Is Allen
Hope of the hopeless- gathering focus

I have no pity for a prison that died

Don’t even say it- consider the source again

Your indecision let me make up my mind

The normally vacant will make you contagious

Why does it matter when The Human is gone?

Before you bother, I knew I’d master this

So take your time because I know what went wrong


There’s only room in here for one… and I’ve decided it’s not you

I had to do what must be done… you would’ve done it too


Suddenly I’m feeling strange/ I know you want it

Tell me you will never change/ I know you want it too 


Nobody’s out there- you’re getting us nowhere

I just remembered why I put you through hell

You might be different- but I didn’t ask for this

You know you’re crazy when you’re talking to yourself


There’s only room in here for one… and I’ve decided it’s not you

I had to do what must be done… you would’ve done it too


Suddenly I’m feeling strange/ I know you want it

Tell me you will never change/ I know you want it too

I know you want it too/ I know you want it too/ I know you want it too


Why delay or complicate the gravity of my persuasion?

Look into that part of you

I am you, without hesitation


There’s only room in here for one… and I’ve decided it’s not you

I had to do what must be done… you would’ve done it too


Suddenly I’m feeling strange/ I know you want it

Tell me you will never change/ I know you want it too

I know you want it too/ I know you want it too/ I know you want it too
04:18
8 Play Taciturn
Across the sea to you… I’ve left myself deserted here again

Across the sea to you… my pieces are too broken now to mend

In the middle under a cold black sky

The sun will only burn for you and I

In the moment before I lose my mind

These hours don’t mean anything this time


Give me a sign/ show me the line/ maybe tonight

I’ll tell you everything

Give me a sign/ show me the line/ maybe tonight

I’ll tell you everything


Across the world for you… my reasons have no reason to remain

I’d cross the world for you… I don’t know what I’m doing wrong

But I can’t stay the same

In the middle under a clear blue sky

The sun can only burn for you and I

In the moment before I lose my mind

These hours don’t mean anything this time


Give me a sign/ show me the line/ maybe tonight

I’ll tell you everything

Give me a sign/ show me the line/ maybe tonight

I’ll tell you everything


Give me a sign/ show me the line/ maybe tonight

I’ll tell you everything

Give me a sign/ show me the line/ maybe tonight

I’ll tell you everything

Give me a sign/ show me the line/ maybe tonight

I’ll tell you everything

Everything

9 Play Influence of a Drowsy God
All those times before when I was just another face

Among the others keeping secrets to save myself

I could blend into the background and savor the unknown

I could practice preservation and hide behind this shell

But my gods are released on a world that is falling down

My calm is a beast that will not let me give up now

I know- I’m all or nothing


Giving my elation a little something to relax

All the others’ indecisions will make me go mad

There’s no time to hear the arguments or simply close my eyes

I believe this confrontation deserves my full attention

When my gods are released on a world that is falling down

My calm is a beast that will not let me give up now

I know- I’m all or nothing


I can see why nothing has happened/ promises strain

I’m writing this down as I run

Take all the examples and what have I learned?

Nothing can heal you when everything burns

My gods are released on a world that is falling down

My calm is a beast that will not let me give- up- now

I’m all or nothing

I’m all or nothing

Nothing

Nothing

Nothing

Nothing
04:29
10 Play The Travelers, Pt. 2
My body’s broken

No words are spoken

Am I finally at the end?

This Conflagration is my contagion

Pulls me down yet again


Maybe life is nothing more than a curse inside the blessed

I will fight this bloody war with every strangled breath

I’m on my own… I’m on my own


I don’t need a conscience/ I don’t need to feel

I don’t need these weary eyes to tell me what I know is real

I don’t need anybody to tell me who I am

Blame it on a broken heart- I’ve fallen apart again
03:02
11 Play Last of the Real
Where’s my crucifix? Where’re my cigarettes?

This hypodermic melancholy is not enough

Scratch test credit fraud- this hate is all I’ve got

Just feed me whiskey and you’ll feel me- the time has come

Imagine all the people belittled and abused

You want a revolution? I want the fucking truth


NO VOODOO ORDEAL CAN STOP ME NOW

I’ll tear this place apart until you give me what I want

THE LAST OF THE REAL CAN’T STOP ME NOW

I’ll tear this place apart until you give me what I want


Hundred dollar bills and quiet little kills

Think you can hold me? It’ll take an army- I’m everywhere

You press into the flesh; clichés are beat to death

Is this the best you can come up with? Feels like despair

I made the news today- front page above the fold

You tell me God is dead- I’ll show you Hell is cold


NO VOODOO ORDEAL CAN STOP ME NOW

I’ll tear this place apart until you give me what I want

THE LAST OF THE REAL CAN’T STOP ME NOW

I’ll tear this place apart until you give me what I want

Until you give me what I want

Until you give me what I want


Bow your fucking head/ desecrate your dead/ can’t you see

You’re letting all the lies get in/ close your eyes for I have fucking sinned

Your talk is doubt/ remember how you wanted to be born again?

Well, you weren’t born for this…


NO VOODOO ORDEAL CAN STOP ME NOW

I’ll tear this place apart until you give me what I want

THE LAST OF THE REAL CAN’T STOP ME NOW

I’ll tear this place apart until you give me what I want

Until you give me what I want

You can’t stop me now

You can’t stop me now
