Track Name: The Opposition
either way I always fail to recall this
and either way its falling slowly to me
but every day is long and takes it all
either way there’s nothing left for me to give

either way I remember everything
in every way this will repeat itself again
either way an affection remains the same
but either way we can’t ratify

either way I forgot what I do this for
and either way its got me further than I know

either way an affection remains
remains the same
but either way there’s no use for blame

there’s no way I’ll ever stop this cycle
and there’s no way to get this back on course
any day it will collapse and take us down
just find a way...........its life

there’s no way I forgot what I do for you
and there’s no way we won’t do this all again

either way an affection remains
remains the same
but either way there’s no use for blame
and every day it finds a way

everyday I think I put this to bed but no
repeat repeat repeat repeat and then wait for a change

either way I forgot what I do this for
and either way its got me further than I know
there’s no way I forgot what I do for you
and there’s no way we won’t do this all again
Track Name: The Wait
Every day here
Lost its presence
Flesh and touching you
Reverses the way

I’ll break in two (waiting for you)
If I wait for you

Resist all these pleas
Despite all the tears
I’ve mistaken you
For someone who cares

I’ll break in two (waiting for you)
If I wait for you

Resist the patience
Resist the path
Resist the patience
Patience only leads to contempt

The wait takes so much time
I'll break in two always
Left with no path I can't
Only you can tell me

I'll break in two
If I wait for you

Vast indifference
Fills this nothing
Blatant cutting through
Pulse left ruptured

I'll wait for you
Track Name: Disconnect
The destruction of a dream
Can I say that I did the best I could?
Forgot what it’s like to make believe
Wish I could say I still believed that dreams
Only die when they come true

I’ll disconnect, I’ll disconnect, its over
It’s better now this way
Cause this direction isn’t quite so star-studded
Can I convince myself that this is better?
Disconnect I’m disconnected

A rude awakening when dreams meet reality
And you’re forced to wake from sleep
Oil and water, fire and ice, when getting close will not suffice
But it’s not the only way
No it’s not the only way

When you take this in
Then you find there’s more out there for you
For me
Track Name: Always Tempting Fate
Upside down
I'm still in one piece
Turn around
Concern this fall the least
When all the while, when all is defiled
There's still no clarity
But when is it time
To say I cannot see

Always find this wall
Obstruct the view of it all
But I'll always test its strength
I'll always try to break
Through before I can't escape

I'm always tempting fate

(This is my solution, This is my dilution)
I'm no good for you like this
I'm no good for anyone
So let me remain like this
Detached from everyone
Admission to tempting fate
In this epiphany
Admission to testing my
Inferiority

It's just no good
Track Name: The Pedestal
You hate that anyone else exists
I'm finally sick of the intolerance
Someone remind me what is healthy
About that pedestal you're on

You're no exception to the rule
We're all here sharing the same air
Who really cares about the battle
It's a war that no one wins

The nerve to say you're better than
The man who built what you're standing on
There's pride in your intolerance
Say it out loud, does it still make sense?

I don't expect to change your mind
But there's some truth here for your kind
You claim to have all of the answers
Take a look around, you're wrong
You're wrong
It's time, get down
Down, down, off your pedestal

Come, come, come show me the way
Tell me that I'm lost in who I am today
Make sure to ignore every word that I have to say

You've second-guessed yourself too much
To truly trust your righteous crutch
Forget and forgive, live and let live
But maybe that's too much for you

Let me hear your view on pride
And let your ego then decide
You claim to have all of the answers
Take a look around, you're wrong
You're wrong
It's time, get down
Down, down, off your pedestal

Come, come, come show me the way
Tell me that I'm lost in who I am today
Make sure to ignore every word that I have to say

You don't get it, you won't ever get it, no
You don't get it, you won't ever get it, no
You've reached the point of no return

Tell me, tell me
Come share your wisdom with us all
Tell me, tell me
Tell us how we're destined to fall
Tell me, tell me
How to prepare for the curtain call
Tell me just how you'll save us all

Tell me just how you will save us all

Come, come, come show me the way
Tell me that I'm lost in who I am today
Make sure to ignore every word that I have to say
Tell us that we're lost in who we are today
Track Name: Masochist
I've filled my life with failures
And here's a new one for the list
Can't pass up a chance to lose
No matter how much I insist

I couldn't find a way to be
I guess I still can't, so I give in

Masochist

Everything everything falls apart again
Won't you say, won't you tell me
Everything everything comes around again
Make me pay. Start this all again

Broke down all my walls
Exposed the one that I abhor
So now they're built back up
Thicker and stronger than before

My shoulders can't hold the weight
I'm keeping it all inside, it's my only way

Masochist

Everything everything falls apart again
Won't you say, won't you tell me
Everything everything comes around again
Make me pay. Start this all again

Everything everything comes around again
Everything everything falls apart again
