Track Name: Two Decades Older
LONG CASE
TURN YOUR GEARS
OH GOD
WHERE DID ALL THE YEARS GO
I KNOW
STUMBLED TO THE FLOOR
READY TO POUR MORE
THE BOTTOM OF A BOTTLE IS A CAGE

FOGGY MIND
NO CLEAR THOUGHTS
NO RECOLLECTION OF WHAT YOU WERE TAUGHT
NO SMALL TRADE FOR WHAT YOU HAVE BOUGHT
YOU ARE THE PROBLEM

BLURRY
IN THE MIRROR
THE PRODUCT YOU DESPISE
COULD NOT BE CLEARER
PARTY
ENJOY A NIGHT ON THE TOWN
LIKE YOU CAN'T DO TO ME
I'LL PUT YOU DOWN

TO OTHER PEOPLE THE ANSWER MAY BE CLEAR
YET MY DECISIONS IN LIFE HAVE BROUGHT ME HERE
MY CRUTCH IS ONE OF PAIN & GUILT
I CAN'T HELP BUT DESTROY THESE WALLS I'VE BUILT

COLD CHILLS
& YOU'VE GOT THE SHAKES
YOU GAMBLED
AND YOU UPPED THE STAKES (X2)

TO OTHER PEOPLE THE ANSWER MAY BE CLEAR
YET MY DECISIONS IN LIFE HAVE BROUGHT ME HERE
MY CRUTCH IS ONE OF PAIN & GUILT
I CAN'T HELP BUT DESTROY THESE WALLS I'VE BUILT
Track Name: Kabuga (Ft. Michael Felker)
THE 7TH OF APRIL
ACROSS THE SEA
THERE ARE MEN THAT ARE FREE
THAT SHOULDN'T BE
CONSPIRING
COUNTLESS CASUALTIES
NO FUCKING EMPATHY

FUCK

LANDLOCKED ENCOMPASSED BY
WAR & HATE WITH NO ESCAPE
HALF A MILLION
PURCHASED JUST TO INSTIGATE
JUSTIFIED AS TO WIRED THE FUNDS
GENOCIDAL PRICK
ENJOY VACATION

INCITING BIGOTRY
WITH MEDIA TO BROADCAST LIES
THE INNOCENT
TURNED INTO KILLERS
OVER NIGHT
THE REFLECTION OF THE BLADE
WIPE THE BLOOD STAINS
AND MASK THEIR CRIES

NAMELESS FACES
CROSS OUR MINDS
WHAT ABOUT THE MASS GRAVES
WITH NO CHANCE TO SAY
THEIR GOODBYES

HIDE BEHIND
YOUR CURTAIN OF INFLUENCE UNCONFINED
TILL THE DAY THAT THE SUN REIGNS TRUE
AND YOUR CRIMES SHINE THROUGH
ONTO BETTER DAYS

FUCK

MOVE ONTO INTENTIONAL
SPREAD OF DISEASE
YOUR WALLET WRITES CHECKS
WHILE YOUR PEOPLE PAY FEES
WITH YOUR WALLET & YOUR WORDS
YOU CHANGED THOUSANDS OF LIVES
THE CLOSED MINDED SHIT YOU SPEW
IS FUCKING DEPRIVED

YOU'RE SO DEPRIVED
YOU CLEARED THE NAMES
FROM YOUR MOUTH
WITH YOUR LIES
GONE WITH THE WIND
NO CONSEQUENCES
FOR YOUR CRIMES (x2)

NAMELESS FACES
CROSS OUR MINDS
WHAT ABOUT THE MASS GRAVES
WITH NO CHANCE TO SAY
THEIR GOODBYES

HIDE BEHIND
YOUR CURTAIN OF INFLUENCE
UNCONFINED
TILL THE DAY THAT THE SUN REIGNS TRUE
AND YOUR CRIMES SHINE THROUGH
ONTO BETTER DAYS (X2)

THIS IS NOT YOUR LAND
YOU HAD CONTROL IN THE PALM OF YOUR HANDS
STARING IN THE EYES OF THEIR MOTHERS
WHAT WOULD YOU SAY (x2)
Track Name: Personas
I WILL DENY THIS
I'M LIVING IN SILENCE

THIS METROPOLIS
PLANTED ON MY SHOULDERS
OVERPOPULATED
I SAID CONDOLENCE TO
MYSELF

I TOOK THE PROMISE
AND THE GUILT
CLEARED MY PATH AND WASHED AWAY
THE FILTH
ON AND FORWARD
WE WAIT
FOR A BETTER TIME

BRING ME TO EASE

I TOOK THE PROMISE
AND THE GUILT
CLEARED MY PATH AND WASHED AWAY
THE FILTH
ON AND FORWARD
WE WAIT
FOR A BETTER TIME

CLEAR THE PATH
AND WASH AWAY THE GUILT
ON A FOWARD
TO A BETTER TIME

I JUST DON'T KNOW WHY
THE UNIFORM IN EXISTENCE
DISSIPATE IN THIS INSTANCE
SACRIFICE FOR THIS INTEREST
THE UNIFORM IN EXISTENCE

EXISTENCE (x2)
Track Name: Odors from Behind the Door
WITH EMPHASIS
OF THE LABEL ON MANKIND
DEAD AHEAD
NEVER WEARY OF WHAT WE FIND
IRONY IS A LINE WE WON'T CROSS
BUT OUR FAILURES STILL DEFINE US
THEY DEFINE US

IT IS NOT
PERILOUS TO CROSS THE LINE
LIFE IS NOT A RECORD
THERE IS NO DAMN WAY TO REWIND
AND STILL YOU CHAIN YOURSELF
DROP YOUR REGRETS
LET THEM FOLLOW YOU
TO HELL

I FIND MYSELF BLINDED BY UNCERTAINTY
AS MY SOUL SEARCHES FOR AN UNATTAINABLE TRUTH
WITH NO RESOLVE OF THE COMPILATION OF MY BELIEF
THE CERTAINTY OF MY OUTCOME CONSUMES ME

EYES POINTED AT THE CEILING
FORMALDEHYDE
PRESSURE ON THE ROPE
CAUSED IT TO TIE
IN WAKE OF YOUR LIFE
& WHAT YOU LEFT BEHIND
THE CHANCES OF SURVIVAL
WHEN THE STARS ALIGN

LIGHT THE PATH THAT YOU ARE ON
YEARS YOUR FAMILY WILL BE GONE

I AM BECOME DEATH
THE DESTROYER OF WORLDS
& THEY'LL NEVER HEAR YOUR VOICE AGAIN
LOCKED IN THE PAST
WITH REGRETFULNESS
BLEAK ARE THE YEARS WE'VE SPENT

WE ARE THE LIARS
THE PATRONS
WE'RE NOT SAINTS
SEWED BY YOUR NEW SKIN
AND FASHIONED BY THE WORST
WE'RE TOO FAR GONE

CONVINCING YOURSELF
OF A STRUGGLE
DON'T LET THE WORDS
FALL OUT OF YOUR MOUTH

ODORS FROM BEHIND THE DOOR
SOMETHING THAT YOU WANT MORE
THAN LIFE ITSELF (x2)
Track Name: Warship
SHELLS AND POISONS IN THE AIR
WHERE IS YOUR GOD NOW
IN THE TRENCHES OF NO WHERE
MEN HIT THE GROUND
BARRON
NO MAN'S LAND
DOG TAGS LITTERED IN
BLOOD DRENCHED SOIL

ALL IS FAIR IN LOVE & WAR
CONFLICTED WITH BELONGINGS
IN THE STATE OF WAR
RISE UP & HOLD CLOSE YOUR HEARTS

WITH ALL THE PROFIT TO GAIN
& ALL THE PEOPLE WE SHAME
STILL WE HAVE THE POWER
WE CAN CHANGE THIS WORLD
LIKE A SPARK TO THE FLAME
A BETTER WORLD'S WHERE WE AIM
YOUR MIND IS SOMETHING YOU TAME
TO HELP US CHANGE THIS WORLD

EQUALITY WON'T WORK AS A DOUBLED SIDED KNIFE
AN EYE FOR AN EYE LEAVE THE WHOLE WORLD BLIND
TO FIGHT OUT WARS WE POLLUTE THE AIR
THE WHOLE WORLD IS BLIND SO WHY COULD THEY CARE

CENTURIES OF WAR
STILL WE WANT MORE (x2)

WITH ALL THE PROFIT TO GAIN
& ALL THE PEOPLE WE SHAME
STILL WE HAVE THE POWER
WE CAN CHANGE THIS WORLD
LIKE A SPARK TO THE FLAME
A BETTER WORLD'S WHERE WE AIM
YOUR MIND IS SOMETHING YOU TAME
TO HELP US CHANGE THIS WORLD
Track Name: Catatonic
HIDE FROM THE VISUALS
ROTTING YOUR ARMS
SAVE YOUR BREATH, NOT YOURSELF
BUT THE PLOT GOES ON

LIGHTS STREAM ACROSS YOUR FACE
BUT YOU'RE STILL UNRESPONSIVE
YOU REFUSE TO FACE THE FACTS
BEHIND THOSE ROSE GLASSES
IRONICALLY ENOUGH
REALITY WON'T STOP DESPITE THE INDECISION

BUT WE ALL KNOW TO
FACE THE FACTS
FUCK THE FACTS
AND GIVE NOTHING BACK

FLIP OVER THE HOURGLASS
TIME IS RUNNING BLEAK
YOU'VE GOT TO SNAP OUT OF IT
TANGLED HEAD IN TANGLED SHEETS

HOPING FOR THE EARTH TO STAND STILL
DROP THE ACT
IF YOU DON'T
THEN WHO FUCKING WILL
THIS IS YOUR LIFE
SPARE YOUR TIME
PICK UP YOUR HEAD
AND ASK WHY

AS YOUR BODY BECOMES AN ASYLUM
YOU CAN'T GIVE UP
YOU CAN'T LOSE HOPE
YOUR MIND IS SWALLOWED BY TIME
THAT YOU CAN'T TAKE BACK
THAT YOU CAN'T GIVE UP

A FROZEN EXPRESSION
IS ALL YOU HAVE LEFT
SO COME BACK TO US

SORE EYES SOARING
THROUGH OUTER SPACE
WE'LL BE JUST FINE
& ORBIT ALL DAY
YOUR EYES HAUNT ME
SO PLEASE REFRAIN
WE'LL BE JUST FINE
& ORBIT ALL DAY
Track Name: In Reaction
OH, AIR INSIDE MY LUNGS
IS FILLED WITH MUST
IT REMINDS ME OF
EVERYTHING WE HAVE LOST
THERE IS AN OPTION
TO MAKE THINGS RIGHT
INSTEAD I'LL NEST INSIDE MY HEAD
& SULK TONIGHT

WHY BITE YOUR TONGUE (x2)
WHEN YOU COULD GIVE YOUR ALL
WHY BITE YOUR TONGUE
WHEN YOU COULD LEARN TO FALL

RUN AWAY
HIDE FROM ALL THESE EMPTY IMPLICATIONS
STRAY & WAIT
HOPE TO FIND YOURSELF ONE DAY
RIGHT
THERE IS NO WRONG INSIDE YOUR HEAD
STROLL ON
OUR LEADERS CARRY BLOOD WE SHED

DON'T FORGET THE PAST
MAKE THE SAME MISTAKES

PROPHECIES; LOSING HOPE
I MIGHT BE BLIND
UNPREPARED FOR MY SURROUNDINGS
CONSCIENCE TO DESPISE
LOST INSIDE THESE ENDLESS TIMES
TURN ON PAVED ROADS
ON PAVEMENT WHERE WE LAY

I AM NOT TRYING ANYMORE
I CAN'T STAND LOSING ON MY OWN
OUT ON A SLEEVE WITH A GOLDEN THRONE
I AM LYING


SHOVE THOSE STORIES OUT THE DOOR
I'M NOT WELCOMED HERE ANYMORE
PLACED INSIDE THIS FUCKED UP CAGE
DRESS ME UP, MAKE ME DANCE ON STAGE

WHERE WILL BE THE RIGHT TIME
WHEN WILL BE THE WRONG PLACE

YEARS FLY BY & SCARS ARE FADING
STARING AT A SCREEN & CRAVING
THIS IS THE LIFE WE'RE DEFACING
ON THE EDGE OF BARELY BREATHING

AS A GLIMMER OF HOPE SHINES THROUGH
BEARING DOWN ON MY HOPELESS THOUGHTS
MY OLD CONSCIENCE SWALLOWED BY AMBITION
INSIDE MYSELF IT ROTS

BRINGS A WORLD A NEW
A NEW WAY TO FEEL
A NEW WAY TO HOPE
A NEW WAY TO LIVE

I'M ALIVE
Track Name: Cursory View
A COMA TAKEN FOR GRANTED
AN AROMA DRAWING RUST
I'LL TAKE YOU TO THE SHRINE
LETTERS ARE WORDS IN ALL OF US
FOR WHEN THE CALLING'S HARD
PULL THE CURSORY CARD

A DOORMAT FOR PEOPLE OF SIN
TO PLACE IT IN FRONT OF US
IS TO BE WAY BEHIND
THINKING HOW THE ANGLE IS
YOUR SIX COULD EASILY BE
A NINE THAT'S FALSELY DEFINED
JUST BECAUSE YOU CAN SEE
DOESN'T MEAN YOU'RE NOT BLIND

A WORLD RIDDLED BY AN EDGY TAKE
NOTHING FAILS TO SURPRISE THE UNPREPARED
SOME REAL THINGS AROUND CONSIDERED TO BE FAKE
IT'S ALL UP TO THOSE WHO WANT TO BE AWAKE (x2)

A STORY WRITTEN BY THE GREATS
REWRITTEN BY THE WORD OF MOUTH
HOW WILL YOUR STORY END
IT'S HOW YOUR MIND CONTRADICTS
FOR WHEN THE FALLING'S HARD
PULL THE CURSORY CARD

YOU CANT BE MEASURED IN HEIGHT
FOR HOW CLOSE YOU ARE TO THE GROUND
ITS THE GROUNDED THAT
HAS LESS ROOM TO FALL STRAIGHT DOWN
YOU CAN LEAVE YOURSELF OUT
SO CAN ANYONE ELSE

A WORLD RIDDLED BY AN EDGY TAKE
NOTHING FAILS TO SURPRISE THE UNPREPARED
IT'S ALL UP TO THOSE WHO WANT TO BE AWAKE

SLEEPILY WIDE AWAKE
NOW DAWN ON ME FOR THE FINAL SAY

LET US BE
LET THEM BE
LET YOU BE
Track Name: Reflect
IF THE PAIN I FEEL IS REAL
WHY AM I GOING NUMB
IF YOUR LOVE IS SO IDEAL
WHY CAN I FEEL THE BARREL OF YOUR GUN

AGAINST MY HEAD IT WHISPERS IN MY EAR
HUSH THERE'S NO NEED TO FEAR HER
MY CRIES FROM INSIDE
BRINGS OUT THE BLAME ON MYSELF

LIVING IN A LIE
WATCHING TIME GO BY
REFLECTING ON THE PAST
WITH A BULLET IN MY HEAD

LIFE FLASHING BEFORE MY EYES
I FEEL EVERYTHING

ALL THE LIES
ALL THE PAIN
ALL THE SUFFERING
