Track Name: The Price is Life
Terror it roars through the air
they smile as it rolls
what was burning in their field now fills all our homes
they think that they're winners
but who told them this was a game show, i know they say that how it goes
but i wont acknowledge the message that bleeds from their throats

you look that way i'll go this way
its the price we pay for the life that we love
you look this way ill point that way
down a long and fearful road

we all felt so safe behind our walls so big and tall
we never thought that it could all come down and kill us all
with bits of information leaking through the stones
it cracks and splinters the bone

you look that way ill go this way
its the price we pay for the life that we love
you look this way ill point that way down a long and fearful road


we claim to be heros as we rush in to save
then hand over swords so they can fall upon the blades
denial sets in bolstered by the patriotic will
we never set the bone we just hobbled down the hill
we all close our eyes to the terror we perceive
we all know it feels better when we cannot see them bleed

did it just hit you?
its a system of control
it should shake the very core of everything you hold
nothing is sacred is a message from the weak
ill stand up and fight after they cut me at the knees
Track Name: Elephant In the Room
Passive fire, it burns yet regrets
starlit desire, oh you cancerous wretch

Bottle it and do your shuffle.
I hope your piss and ink sell.
Squaller is what you bring to your personal hell when you battle the sky.
but you love impossible things that's why i try to reason with you... but I'm afraid that we don't speak the same language.
no no no no no no no
Cuz we never look to away, the future was always yesterday
we pick off what others threw away then we murder for a better day
There's no one on Earth that can be saved cuz we threw it all away

there is no hope
there is no love
there are no dreams that can be attained while we're all staring off..
but its right there x2
it's right there but you cant see. cast aside your blind eyes x2

cuz there is no hope
and there is no love
there are no dreams that can be attained while we're all staring off...
Cuz its right there x3
Track Name: Collapsing Stars
ree me from pain
I close my eyes, imagine escape
chained by pride
never satisfied we fall from the sky

these things bring me no peace at all

all alone amidst the crowd I fall
even when I yell and scream I never get loud

these things bring me no peace at all

the darkness within their minds gradually consumes the mass
twisting within themselves they scream
there are shadows tearing their very being
as they wait for a light to shine

breathing more shallow
everyday over the games we play on the side
never realizing that we're killing all we are
all the while we collapse all of the stars in the sky
Track Name: Cynics & Liars
Watch that wizard dance
his magic so strong it'll put you in a trance
you divine that its romance
but wizards cant love
so why do you offer up your hands

Wizards and witches
Maidens so fair
well in the end they're all
lions tigers bears
you think you know?
i bet you're unaware…
that you've been messing with
lions tigers bears

do you hear the words
they put on the wind?
they choke them up
then suck them back again
the ones that speak are pretty
and they draw you in with power
but thats how they do harm and they devour
all who succumb to the flower

those wizards and witches,
maidens so fair
in the end they're all
lions tigers bears
you think you know
well i think you're unaware
that you've been messing with
lions tigers bears

ogres they seem treacherous
look out for the trolls
or you could look out for all
the evils that you know.
I don’t think you're watching
and they all think so
everything they sell you is a system of control
because they're lions tigers bears
(oh my)
there is no magic here and fairy tales dont exist
there is no magic here
