Track Name: Lost in Noises
I said I'm sorry
it's personal
and no one here can understand
because it's tiring
inescapable
and no one cares to lend a hand
and no one cares to lend a hand

and the crowd roars
we've heard it all before
you're not the first to feel the stone
and you don't have to face this world alone

I said I'm sorry
improbable
I'm gonna have to take a stand
it had to happen
I'm dangerous
and you'll never see this face again
and you'll never see this face again

and the crowd roars
we've heard it all before
you're not the first to feel the stone
and you don't have to face this world alone
but the voices
are lost in the noises
I can't get the message straight
so I'll just have to leave it all to fate
Track Name: Extinction of Secrets
someone is whispering secrets to everyone
passing them on and on and on
and when they finish this unholy quest of theirs
all secrets will be gone
someone is riding their righteous carousel
singing their song their song their song
and when the carousel finally breaks down
the rebellion will be on

voices scream LET'S GO
angry mob at riot
voices scream TOO SLOW
all the bodies hide the…
voices scream LET'S GO
angry mob at riot
voices scream TOO SLOW
all the bodies hide the…

the wind carries the news of the violence
and it hits like a bomb a bomb a bomb
when the people start to revel in their despair
it doesn't take too long
for them to see the curtain waving in front of them
something is wrong is wrong is wrong
they know everything that goes on behind it
and there will be no dawn

voices scream LET'S GO
angry mob at riot
voices scream TOO SLOW
all the bodies hide…
ssshhh

someone is whispering secrets to everyone
passing them on and on and on
and when they finish this unholy quest of theirs
all secrets will be gone
someone is riding their righteous carousel
singing their song their song their song
and when the carousel finally breaks down
the rebellion will be on

voices scream LET'S GO
angry mob at riot
voices scream TOO SLOW
all…the…bodies…

ALL THE BODIES HIDE THE SECRETS FOREVERMORE
SKELETONS WON'T REMAIN IN THE CLOSET DOOR
Track Name: The Offering
if resistance
is gone from your lexicon
can you still learn to overcome?

mass communication
via neural penetration
mass hallucination
de-evolving soul sensations

if the measure
of existence is consumerism
be careful what goes in your mouth

mass communication
via neural penetration
mass hallucination
de-evolving soul sensations

let's all pray
our circuits stay this way
it can't be any worse than
afterlife against the current

FILL THE VOID
FEED THE FIRE
if resistance is gone from your lexicon
can you still learn to overcome?

if the language
is hard for you to comprehend
is anything being said at all?

mass communication
via neural penetration
mass hallucination
de-evolving soul sensations

let's all pray
our circuits stay this way
it can't be any worse than
afterlife against the current
and you will see
another way to be
if you can find it in yourself to
accept this offering
Track Name: Party Girl
the bass is pumping, lights are flashing
tap is open, party's inside
there's no one to stop you or hold you back
responsibility is just a lie
so grab your drink and grab a partner
no one's a stranger, we'll be up all night
just leave your troubles in the back seat
cause you look to me like you could be my…

PARTY GIRL!
no reason for hesitation
because your pulse is racing
PARTY GIRL!
no plans and no ambition
they don't know what they're missing
PARTY GIRL!
it's not your fault they're shallow
you just want to get down low
PARTY GIRL!
and when it ends it will be so
you will be burning down below

you're not knitting onesies, you're knitting stories
so just keep dancing until the day you die
or let someone else, 'cause you can't be troubled
when you shake your hips under the night sky
you put chloroform on a pacifier
you don't get any higher, so give it a try
it's your life baby
it's your world honey
you don't want to lose it
so come and be my…

PARTY GIRL!
no reason for hesitation
because your pulse is racing
PARTY GIRL!
no plans and no ambition
they don't know what they're missing
PARTY GIRL!
it's not your fault they're shallow
you just want to get down low
PARTY GIRL!
and when it ends it will be so
you will be burning down below

your fabrication is the key
a mother's life won't set you free

pro-choice like a motherfucker can't you see,
that the party life is the life for me!

so where's my…
PARTY GIRL!
no reason for hesitation
because your pulse is racing
PARTY GIRL!
no plans and no ambition
they don't know what they're missing
PARTY GIRL!
it's not your fault they're shallow
you just want to get down low
PARTY GIRL!
and when it ends it will be so
you will be burning down below
PARTY GIRL!
get up, get up, get down!
get up, get up, get down!
PARTY GIRL!
drink out the tap, keep dancing!
drink out the tap, keep dancing!
PARTY GIRL!
it's not your fault they're shallow
let's see how low you can go!
PARTY GIRL!
and when it ends it will be so
you will be burning down below
Track Name: Queen of the Bathtub
she's living in a world where all is black
and that's just fine by me
an illusionary trace of pain on her face
is all that i can see
it's true that i'd love her as she's bleeds on my world
there's not much i can do
to stop the red sea or the ecstasy
of her thoughts that i can't see through

i'd hit the ceiling
to see her throne
because she's the queen
so very clean of the evil i have sown

queen of the bathtub

she's dying in a world where i can't be
and that's just fine by her
she's trading all her tears and all of her fears
to see what she can stir
while she's throwing all her problems on the tile of the floor
there's not much i can do
cause i want to have a whiff of her last breath
and i hope that i die too

i hit the ceiling
to see her throne
because she's the queen
so very clean of the evil i have sown

queen of the bathtub
Track Name: Taibshe Scéal
ghost stories
Track Name: Monkey Woman Bridge
i'm swinging the clubs in search of true love baby
i'm walking through scrubs when i saw you waiting
i asked you to join me, and you said "no problem"
then i asked you to love me
now see what i am starting?

after a while, it seems this isn't working
i don't have your style and i see you lurking
but i won't let you go, cause i think you're pretty
and it had to be luck to
find you where they didn't need me

before i even realized what i did
i gave her a kiss on monkey woman bridge
it's no surprise that i don't know what i'm wanting
i don't believe i even know where i'm haunting

we went on some dates and they were romantic
we went to the bridge under night fantastic
we held each others hands, and saw the stars in the sky
and it must have been luck to
see the stars in your eyes

before i even realized what i did
i gave her a kiss on monkey woman bridge
it's no surprise that i don't know what i'm wanting
i don't believe i even know where i'm haunting

if it wasn't for bad luck, i wouldn't know luck
if i wanted to find you, i should've looked where i lost you

before i even realized what i did
i gave her a kiss on monkey woman bridge
it's no surprise that i don't know what i'm wanting
i don't believe i even know where i'm haunting
Track Name: Wrong Equation
i just started feeling sorry for you
when you
told me all about those dirty things you do
you do
don't finish before you get started
you'll never be able to see your way
to another day
it's so easy when ignoring the question
you're too busy thinking about what you'll say
when you retaliate

it gets me thinking
it's different than when you
first walked through the door
it gets me wondering
who thought you could be
trusted before?

i'm having trouble seeing your point of view
that you (told you believed was true)
it sounds so phony are you sure this is what you do?
or are you lying to yourself too?
well ain't this about a motherfucker
you keep saying that you'll stand there waiting for me
well can't you see (well can't you see)
you're steady studying the wrong equation
a simple science that you've mastered indefinitely
we'll give you a PHD

it gets me thinking
it's different than when you
first walked through the door
it gets me wondering
who thought you could be
trusted before?

you're playing possum and we all know better
we're following your act to the letter
your eyes are peeking out through your hair strands
to try to sucker someone into your quicksand
a smile bright enough to catch a blind man
cause no one dares to do the things that you can
a small collection of loyal minions
a wrong number and a faux opinion
we're all swimming in the freezing water
and honest answer should i even bother?
you rub your hands together, they're so sweaty
we all assumed that you were just born ready
a temporary solution at best
another dream is being laid to rest
and all your enemies have called a forfeit
and so i think that it is time you make it
STOP!
Track Name: Internet Scholar
the world is coming to an end
the wind attacks as the earth bends

THE DEEPEST YOU CAN GET
I READ IT ON THE INTERNET
IT'S SO UNFORTUNATE
I READ IT ON THE INTERNET

they're poisoning your kids
they'll take the food from where you live

THE DEEPEST YOU CAN GET
I READ IT ON THE INTERNET
IT'S SO UNFORTUNATE
I READ IT ON THE INTERNET
I
READ
IT
ON
THE
IN-
TER-
NET

it must be true
what will we do?

it must be nice to never be questioned by anybody
and this fallacy will continue
it must be true

THE DEEPEST YOU CAN GET
I READ IT ON THE INTERNET
IT'S SO UNFORTUNATE
I READ IT ON THE INTERNET
Track Name: Pandora's Box
well i hope against hopes that it's not true
that you didn't hate me as much as i loved you
but i knew it had to happen just one of these days
and i would be reminded of your stinging ways
so just try on the glove and see if it fits
in your pandora's box of your lies and secrets

well maybe i'm a fool for going along
maybe i'm an idiot for not being strong
because i knew you were a liar since the first time i heard it
maybe through my ignorance i thought you were worth it
and i will probably feel better when time lets it sit
on your pandora's box where i will find no regret

I'M GIVING UP
on entertaining you
i'm giving up on your lies
enlightened by the world surrounding me
and shunning you from the skies

so i wonder why i think these thoughts again
trailing my mind to it's original sin
i can't see the lines between lies and truth
through all your ignorant acts of youth
your bullshit's making my head spin
within the box you've placed me in

I'M GIVING UP
on entertaining you
i'm giving up on your lies
enlightened by the world surrounding me
and shunning you from the skies
Track Name: Feed the Illusion
spread your wings all tattered and torn
fly away and be reborn
be the angel that you wanted to be
show the world you were always free

let the choir sing
feed the illusion
what the masses want
is just a delusion
let them fall in love
be everything they need
as the truth you speak adds to their confusion

for all they know they know you
no they don't know anything

gravity can't hold you back
faith is not something that you lack
hold the world in your frail hand
let your beauty infect every land

they all fear what they don't know
they don't know why they want you

we all want you

let the choir sing
feed the illusion
what the masses want
is just a delusion
let them fall in love
be everything they need
as the truth you speak adds to their confusion

for all they know they know you
no they don't know anything

they all fear what they don't know
they don't know why they want you

and why would they want you?
