Track Name: PSM
Digital validation is all public masturbation
As we’re stroking our own egos, the monster grows

What is real and who is false? / What had meaning has been lost
Communication evolving, has left the ties dissolving

Look at me, look at me now
Look at me, looking at you
Look at me, look at me now
Look at you, looking at me
Look at me with just one…

Glance for a stare / Like for a share
Master of the art of pretending to care
Glance for a stare / Like for a share
Got you in her pocket, you’re not even aware

Instant gratification in a mass participation
Breeding self-serving clones the big man owns

Techno junkies need a fix / A higher dose to do the trick
This information overload leaves us feeling more alone

Look at me, look at me now
Look at me, looking at you
Look at me, look at me now
Look at you, looking at me
Look at me with just one…

Glance for a stare / Like for a share
Master of the art of pretending to care
Glance for a stare / Like for a share
Got you in her pocket, you’re not even aware
Beware!
Track Name: Obstacle of Doubt
Yeah you say you’ll miss me when I’m gone
But I….I am here to prove you wrong
I…I have compromised myself
And I won’t depend on nothing else

You should have known I’d sell you out
And I…I am shocked you had a doubt
I wanna tear you from my heart
And I just can’t find a place to start

Now that I have put you down
You’re lost in your loneliness
Lying helpless and unwound
Now I’m better off without
The feeling of emptiness
And the obstacle of doubt

You try to stone me from afar
I hope you’re happy where you are
You roll your eyes at me again
But I will be laughing in the end

Now that I have put you down
You’re lost in your loneliness
Lying helpless and unwound
Now I’m better off without
The feeling of emptiness
And the obstacle of doubt
Track Name: Faith to Fault
How can I just follow you blind?
When the truth staring right in the eyes
Yet you believe your lies

How can I keep wasting my time?
Got nothin’ to show but a thorn in my side
It’s hard to keep my pride

Oh…all…bottled up inside

And we keep on treadin’ treadin’ treadin’
Beginning looks just like the endin’
Sun is settin’ setting’ settin’
On us now…

Having faith to fault has blurred the lines
And brought us to a halt
Once you finally decide to open your mind
And realize you’re wrong…
I’m gonna be long gone

How did I get buried inside?
Refuse to come along for the ride
And now my hands are tied

Moving onto limitless skies
Leaving you alone with your sorry disguise
The tool of your demise

Oh…oh…cannot be denied
Oh…oh…choking on your pride

And we keep on treadin’ treadin’ treadin’
Beginning looks just like the endin’
Sun is settin’ setting’ settin’
On us now…

Having faith in fault has beat us down
And dragged us through the salt
Once you finally decide to open your eyes
And realize you’re wrong…
I’m gonna be long gone
Track Name: Down from Three
You say I should be thankful
You say I should be kissing your feet
That's just not me

I try to keep it simple
That kind of thing it don't affect me
It don't offend me

Count down from 3
Count down from 3
Count down from 3
I'm not the one who made you run
Go grab your gun

No need to flash your medals
Accomplishments are so subjective
No responses

I walk away no words to say
I have no time to take my chances
No more chances

Count down from 3
Count down from 3
Count down from 3
I'm not the one who made you run
Go grab your gun

And you walked away today
With nothing much to say
You turned your back and now
It's over
You always act that way, I knew there'd come a day
You turned your back on now
Track Name: Back Inside
A catastrophic rage, desire to turn the page
reveal the truth
a will to live and learn, a part of you that yearns
to keep your youth alive

lets wipe this paper clean of all of the obscene
I bend for you
and all that's been undone deflated in the sun
I'm lost for you again

feel like a ghost and I've retracted in my skin
you've lost your mind if you think I will let you
back inside again

a chance to beat the odds, a blessing fell from god
and burned away
but I can't crack a smile, I've known it all the while
I've gone astray again

feel like a ghost and I've retracted in my skin
you've lost your mind if you think I will let you
back inside again

feel like I'm safe although I'm buried in my sin
you've lost your mind if you think I will let you
back inside again
back inside
Track Name: Out of Reach
a cold reflection weeps the willow
bad dreams collecting in your pillow
whispering silently, whimpering violently
there is so much I need to know
there is so much you've yet to teach
but i'm out of reach

withered my branches drag the pavement
buried my laughter in the basement
of an angry man, cannot understand
there is so much you need to learn
there is so much you've yet to teach
but i'm out of reach

outside perspective never spoken
cracking a mind already broken
is there nothing more? there is nothing more
there is so much you need to learn
there is so much i've yet to teach
but I'm out of reach
