Wide Awake 03:54
Wide Awake Set yourself on fire Just to start a fight Who puts out a fire Who turns out the lights The oppressor. All alone Underground Rest my soul Anchors weigh me down Who fights fire with fire Who takes eye for eye Who turns a blind eye to Who gets out alive The oppressor Anchors weigh me down All along Underground Wide awake All along Underground Wide awake Hate breeds hope Raze it to the ground Raise it up again

Red Tornado 04:20
Red Tornado Twisted like the strings of a puppet lover Pull back the shade, I can see your figure Keep affections wrapped and muffled Like the sound that ascends from the wrinkled covers Rollin in the throes with a red tornado I say "I'll let you go honey if I'm able" Summer in the heat, have the sense to tell me But before you can taste, spill the coffee over Cupid shoots you, right back of the head Cupid shoots you, right out of my head I don’t want to fight when it could be over. Honey we're the same in an open orbit Tear apart machine with a wrench an’ socket Bit by bit you can pull and twist it Till it knots the nerve and you know you've done it I go with the sun wherever it might take me Shooting in the shade, you can be my army I don't want to fight with a former lover but when bombs are bursting, you're taking cover Don’t know what to say Cupid shoots you, right back of the head Cupid shoots you, right out of my head

Smother 04:51
Smother In the dusk, in our nines We can hide from sight Try to fight the fire We can race the night Full blood, bare mind Hit the streets in disguise There's no denying Where our likeness lies I loved so hard at the end of the day I kissed your lips as we melt away I squeezed so hard that we fell apart Ride faster Love harder Die following your heart We will ride all night Just to find the prize Drink the nectar down Will the sun to rise It's the sweet, sweet taste Our sensations align Keep up the pace ‘Til the end of the line

Mayday 06:14
Mayday How long Moving through space Light from a dead star We’re made in its place Long gone We’re out of phase Ephemeral half-life Without any trace Neutrons (free neutrons) Pervasive in space Transition to new states (transitioning) Spontaneous change Bounce back (resilience) Don't lose any sleep Don't hold your breath yet Remember to breathe Don’t go away Don’t slip away Never runaway Oh yeah Don't float away Don't drift away Better plan to stay Oh yeah So wrong People in pain You could've died Left me with everything Who am I To say when you've suffered enough Letting you go To choose your fate
5.
Nightlines 04:16
Night Lines In pitch black, they move high voltage In pitch black, there’s nothing passive Nobody sees through veils of onyx Before the sun rises they never think twice Late night, the cars move slower And in their minds, the world tastes sour Overcome by a cruel affection Before the sun rises they never think Night lines Sunrise This time, it’s a race to the finish Time stops, hours to minutes Blood pounds with no hesitation Before the sun rises they never think twice Look around if the night is frightening A slow dive to compound lightening In pitch black, there will be no waiting Before the sun rises they never think Night lines Sunrise
6.
Revolt 06:33
Revolt Don’t stop now we’ll get away If we keep cool heads we’ll see better days If we stop now we’ll never get away Don’t let go we’ll get away Next bend ‘round there’s a straightaway Hold on tight, we’ll get away I’ve never been in love before ‘Cause it’s never been like this It’s never been this pure before Reveling in this bliss No I’m not afraid to die Won’t let life pass me by Oh I know that when I die No regrets, no goodbyes Oh I Oh a dragonfly Don’t stop now we’ll get away If we keep cool heads we’ll see better days If we don’t stop we’ll get away Don’t let go we’ll get away Next bend ‘round there’s a straightaway Hold on tight, we’ll get away I’ve never been in love before It’s never been like this I’ve never felt this free before Levitate into this No I don’t know when I’ll die Won’t let life pass me by Oh I know that when I die No regrets no goodbyes Oh I become a dragonfly
7.
Falling Apart Pushing buttons Electrocution This old heart Is falling apart Cut your shirt Paddles to skin Feels like a sin Reanimation Defibrillate I'm out of my mind Move into the white Come into the light again Move into the light This falling apart Bellicose heart I'm not gonna wait Machine gun Heart attack track Rat-a-tat-tat Ribcage cracks Triple bypass Lazarus Is raising those bones Move into the light Into the sky (clouds) again Move into the white I don't know why you get so down boy I don't know why you get so down I don't know why you get so down boy I don't know why you're out of your mind
8.
Waiting For 05:24
Waiting For Don't need perfection No need to justify your ways No expectations Only acceptance in this place Don't need illusions Remove the mask that hides your face Only forgiveness, Acceptance and grace I'm letting go Of my preconceived Ideas of The way things should be Go with the flow On the riverside Watching clouds blow by I'm not holding on For the future I'm staying here In this moment I'm holding on To this contentment I'm at peace In this moment I'm feeling peace And if you find you've hit the floor And you can't take it anymore I swear it's well worth waiting for I know it's all worth waiting I'm letting go Of my preconceived Ideas of The way things could be Go with the flow Through the universe Watch it all float away

Writing On the Wall Are you getting this Does it make sense at all Are you seeing this The writing's on the wall Or are you here at all Is this loud enough Is this getting through at all Are you mad enough The writing's on the wall Or can you hear at all Are you tough enough Do you fear it all Are you manning up Are you here to take the fall Or are you here at all Is this rough enough Are you here to play at all When you've had enough You know who to call But you're not here at all Your head's in the fog
10.
Sour Oranges, Sweet Limes Lifting darkness we wake Misty mountain Tucanes Eau de rose Evokes In fields of Kosmos We lie. Al sereno We taste Sour oranges Sweet limes Find me at home where the air is clean A thousand forests won't stand between Deep down inside a serenity Wherever I go, that's where I'll be I’ve got a feeling A funny feeling I’ve got a feeling Things are gonna go your way
