Lie beside me in the dark Feel the sense of isolation Silent blows have left their marks Purple hearts of disaffection Happy home and open arms Turned into a gilded prison Damn the comfort of your charms For holding back the change of season And we should know The emptiness will grow We played our cards with open eyes But came up just a little short and late And in this sorry state we stay alone together, alone Standing up while falling down Bruised and battered love is dying Twist my smile into a frown Share the anguish I’ve been hiding Bleary eyed insomniac Gets to do a lot of thinking Drive the knife into your back I guess you didn’t see it coming And we should know The emptiness will grow We played our cards with open eyes But came up just a little short and late And in this sorry state we walk alone together, alone A lonely life is better lived alone Without the ghost of “might have been” Hanging on to what is gone Will never let the healing begin No no no no And we don't know Who'll be the first to go We played our cards with open eyes But came up just a little short and late And in this sorry state we die alone together, alone

I wake up startled, vision hazy the last thing i remember were the lights my arms are spattered, blood and diamonds i turn my head and see her form crumpled on my right Crush of metal, tires screeching The scent of fuel reminds me I'm alive Out of silence, scream the sirens Comprehension setting in as uniforms arrive And it all comes rushing back without a sound And it all comes rushing back without a sound I call out softly, muted whisper She might as well be miles away from me Is she moving? Is she breathing? Is this the way that nightmare becomes reality? And it all comes rushing back without a sound And it all comes rushing back without a sound Through the windshield, i see faces A private moment coming to an end Their lips are moving, i hardly hear them I try to say we’re not okay as i fade out again And it all comes rushing back without a sound And it all comes rushing back without a sound And it all comes rushing back without a sound And it all comes rushing back without a sound

Love Undone 04:33
Pressure is fading (I speak but you don't seem to hear) Trying to breath (Your eyes are distant stained with tears) I stand helpless (Shifting sands through trembling hands) As the walls fall around me (The more I need you the more you fade away) Structure is slipping (Desperation claws at me) Sent thru the cracks (Laughs at my despondency) Aftermath of wreckage and uncertainty (Hope is gone, Love undone) (Paralyzed with fear of certainty) Uncertainty The pressure is fading (I shout but you don't seem to hear) I’m trying to breathe (Your eyes are distant stained with tears) I stand helpless as the walls fall, crumbling (Shifting sands through trembling hands) Can’t do a thing (Mind astray, in disarray) (Hope is gone, Love undone) (The only truth I know has gone away)

Channel Zero 09:10
On the air, tuning into, channel zero Electronic dopamine, in the marrow Willing victims synching in, Swallowing the vacant waves of platitudes that feed on our fears Talking heads, spewing deceit, for the masses Echo chambers postulate, a world in ashes Corporate interests in control Pimping facts with fantasy a rhapsody seducing our ears Hear... full of sound and fury (I’m the idiot box that you turn to) Feel... the lowest blow (I’m the kick that you crave as much as breathing) See... wrinkles in the story (Showing you just what I want you to see) Be... someone who knows (Just surrender and I’ll take care of… everything) In this life, a sucker is born, every minute We choose to embrace this shit, let’s wallow in it Yield our minds and lose our wills Knuckle under, fall asleep and march like sheep right off the cliff Truth... silenced in the night Facts... biased left and right When we only heed the words that rhyme We’ll be dumb and blind, trapped in a concept of our own design Worthless pawns On the air, tuning into, channel zero Electronic dopamine, in the marrow Willing victims synching in, (1) Swallowing the vacant waves of platitudes that feed on our fears (1) Talking heads, spewing deceit, for the masses (1) (2) Echo chambers postulate, a world in ashes (1) (2) Corporate interests in control (1) (2) Pimping facts with fantasy a rhapsody seducing our ears (1) (2) On the air, tuning into, channel zero (1) (2) (3) On the air, tuning into, channel zero (1) (2) (3) (1) Keep it this time, keep it in time, keep it in mind, keeping this mind, keep it out of harm (2) Being right means being hated, truth and freedom overrated (3) Bleary eyed insomniac, gets to do a lot of thinking
