Track Name: Another Nothing
there’s another nothing not happening here
and here is another place
celebrate the something sucking your soul
and stealing the smile from your face

they compliment your great anxiety
coordinate your coast to luxury
and when you get accustomed to the speed of things
they add apostrophes

listen to the sounds in your head
cause you’re nothing more than an antenna
and if you had the sense to be dead
you’d be closer than anyone ever came before

there’s another frequency licking the air and listening to your life
you’d better not belabor what’s righteous and fair
they’re not gonna tell you twice

they’d really rather rip you right in two
than ever cop to what they plan to do
and when you let them lift you up and dust you off the reckoning ensues

listen to the sounds in your head
cause you’re nothing more than an antenna
and if you had the sense to be dead
you’d be closer than anyone ever came before

Before you turn into a device
you’d better run for your life
they’re coming quickly with a new technology knife
to cut you open and see what’s inside
and to harvest your pride
and to make it all their own

all their own
Track Name: Walk Through Me
He contacted me and we got together on two or three
points of contention, in regard to your ascension
into a place that defines obscurity

all your rhetoric runs aground
without a soul to save
and when we wish to be larger than life
we come back from the grave

we can choose to see
whatever side we perceive to be worth our being
and in prevention
in regard to you intention
I think your time would be much better spent on a lesser catastrophe

all your rhetoric runs aground
without a soul to save
and when we wish to be larger than life
we come back from the grave

history is unreliable
it’s viable to believe
that every word we’ve been fed since the day we were born
is poison

all your rhetoric runs aground
without a soul to save
and when we wish to be larger than life
we come back from the grave


at least we bleed in a similar way when we can’t always bleed the same
carrying on and corrupting the cause under one common righteous name
I’ve had it with hearing of how we’ll be living when He hobbles back to reign
you sever your ties with your GOD when you sever a vein
Track Name: The Light That Lit Your Way
crawl back
hide your face
you don’t want to show it here anyway
by reason of all of this treason and trickery

sit up straight
raise a glass
pay a little homage to an imperfect past
to the light that lit your way

and when they ask
where you got your mask
don’t avoid the task
of telling them the truth

you took it from the light
without a proper fight
to hide the many faces of your youth

so when your dirty little thoughts start to simmer
take your dirty little finger off the dimmer
when unsolvable problems begin to figure
keep your dirty little finger off the trigger

reel back write your will
we’ve been looking for a little pest to kill
by way of betrayal and beckoning bravery
stand up tall turn around
tranquilly tiptoe off this hallowed ground
by the light that lit your way

I’ll shine it bright
i’ll hold it right
so you don’t stumble
on your way out

so when your dirty little thoughts start to simmer
take your dirty little finger off the dimmer
when unsolvable problems begin to figure
keep your dirty little finger off the trigger

who turned the light on?

who lit your way

I bet you think of me everyday
and it probably pains you to think that way
I’ll never relieve you of having no words to say

what’s mine is mine every part
like a shooting star through your heart
burning up on re-entry and sending you back to the start

the price you pay
arrives today
so please get out of the way
