Track Name: Under The Gun
We got everything you said you'd need to keep us where you wanna be
Spilling blood on a blank white page, caressing all the thoughts we made
I'll play the fool if you'll be my fate, cuz you're so cool
But you can't relate to all of your dead heroes that didn't wanna fade away
A ghost in a photograph/watching as the walls collapse
All of those who should take control have faded out in the sun
If nothing good can last, then we'll burn our innocence to ash
Everyone is just dying to know, are you under the gun?
Born in the bright lights of a crowded room
A past life ready to resume
You're all in a rush to a sinking stone, why won't you speak what you've been shown?
I'll play the fool if you'll be my fate
But you can't relate to all of your dead heroes that didn't wanna fade away
A ghost in a photograph/watching as the walls collapse
All of those who should take control have faded out in the sun
If nothing good can last, then we'll burn our innocence to ash
Everyone is just dying to know, are you under the gun?
A ghost in a photograph/watching as the walls collapse
All of those who should take control have faded out in the sun
If nothing good can last, then we'll burn our innocence to ash
Everyone is just killing to know, are you under the gun?
Track Name: Out Of Time
Cut it off or take it in, leave the lights on for a signal
Out of time for the ever-after/sending away for a curtain call
So when the coast is finally clear and all our sins have washed ashore
Will all your trust be wasted on those who never wanted more?
Call me when you're coming around, if it's soon
Falling with your feet on the ground, there's no room
Crawling back to where you were found, are you through?
Stalling at the sight of the sound, is it true?
This place is not what we thought it was, keeping pace with a double standard
So save your secrets with a grain of salt, just don't tell me, "this is progress"
and when her body drops, we'll bury her in the floor
Send all of your forget me nots to the parasites you adore
Call me when you're coming around, if it's soon
Falling with your feet on the ground, there's no room
Crawling back to where you were found, are you through?
Stalling at the sight of the sound, is it true?
If it's just not sinking in (your best bet is right behind your face)
Yeah, we want it all and more (a test pattern for the masses to erase)
On a roll yet to begin (lying through your yellow crooked teeth)
These wounds are growing sore
Call me when you're coming around, if it's soon
Falling with your feet on the ground, there's no room
Crawling back to where you were found, are you through?
Stalling at the sight of the sound, is it true?
Track Name: Hotbox
Are you waiting to get up and go your own way?
I'm sinking/spinning through the room and I can't wait
I'm laughing it up, so tell me what I wanna hear
But I just can't make the sound out, check it twice and make it clear

I'm sold, this just ain't my scene
I best be leaving
I don't enjoy your company
But I'll make believe it

I don't know how I wound up in this place
But the lights they look so bright now
I'm feeling so displaced
One more drink and I'm slipping
At least I won't fall alone
Cuz being in the state I'm in now
The feeling is too close to call

I'm sold, this just ain't my scene
I best be leaving
I don't enjoy your company
But I'll make believe it
Track Name: All The While
Take a look around this town and tell us if what you see is real
Cuz everyone who's lost has found it's best to fall in line with all the people
So pass the blame along again and find a way to scatter all the pieces
Is it best to run and hide instead? Or pretend there's no words to match the reason
Waiting for a face you know to expose the reasons you can't let it go
and you, forgetting you can't sleep along and it shows all the things that you will never know
So tell us now what you were really thinking, let the words escape past your tongue
Cuz now your ship has left without a captain
You're well off course, the shore becomes unknown
Waiting for a face you know to expose the reasons you can't let it go
and you, forgetting you can't sleep along and it shows all the things that you will never know
So tell us now what you were really thinking, let the words escape past your tongue
All the while it was obvious
Falling apart in the requiem
