Manifesto 04:24
At the rate I'm runnin', I'm surely done in, Guess I'll go out with a bang Why bother now At the speed I'm goin' there's no knowin' So come what ever may To bring me down I keep tellin' myself I'll be okay Just another little hit to get through the day I can tell myself I'm not the same As often as I like but nothings changed So what can I put on paper to save my soul And set my ledgers back in black? All of the debts I owe and the lies I told An overloaded train flying off the tracks I ask myself how I keep these things at bay Just another little hit to get through the day I ask myself how I keep from going insane Just another little hit to get through the day So what can I put on paper to save my soul And set my ledgers back in black? All of the debts I owe and the lies I told An overloaded train flying off the tracks With twenty bridges burning, the last one's soaked in gas I'm crossing at the middle and I strike-light my last match With any bit of luck I'll be dead by the time it lands To erase and scrape away the remains of this thing I am

One more step In the wrong direction, Could send me over the edge and Past the point of no return I won't let Myself fail to surprise you, This much I can't deny you, For you I'd gladly burn Cause you've been to hell and back, you've got the wounds to prove Punished on my behalf, beat down and broken and bruised You walked through fire, they made an example of you, Call me a liar, I'll give you my best excuse Call me a liar [Oh oh oh], call me a liar [Oh oh oh] Laying in the wreck, Seeing red I fade to black here, Wrestling with regrets and old fears, Another page I've yet to turn Raise me up, back towards the surface, Never thought I could serve your purpose, But I wish that I would learn It hurts like a heart attack, try to hide it but I see right through, Soul’s slowly growing black, from all of the constant abuse I'll do all in my power, this time I swear it's the truth Call me a liar, and worse and see if you get through Call me a liar [Oh oh oh], call me a liar [Oh oh oh] It hurts like a heart attack, try to hide it but I see right through Souls slowly growing black, from all of the constant abuse I'll do all in my power, this time I swear it's the truth Call me a liar, I'll give you my best excuse Call me a liar, and worse and see if you get through Call me a liar [Oh oh oh], call me a liar [Oh oh oh]

Sick Seas 04:01
I don't know, if you've noticed, but we're inching, sliding, edging ever closer To a state that we, that we can't control All these black skies, politics, lies, unused puppets dangling limply from their strings, Seems about time now to clean out this house I'll throw my own name in the ring but it won't matter, Cause the hands that count the votes they don't count for you Pit us against each other in this cage-match of blood and borders These Fake Lines separate us from the truth And these sick seas, they scream to me, though lately more it comes out like a choke, New fake news age, misplaced outrage, All our focus honed in on our phony scenes, Our lives are lightless cyber lies gone cold I'll approach the ocean and suck this poison from the water Cause I'm not sure what else I'm supposed to do And I'll strip these stone walls brick by brick until my bones show That's the only type of fight that I've ever known I'll approach the ocean and suck this poison from the water Cause I'm not sure what else I'm supposed to do And I'll scream these words til I spit blood up in the gutter Cause I'm not sure what else I'm supposed to do

You claim that you can see right through these eyes but have you any clue, What's going on inside this mind of mine? I'm not sure you do, cause if you did I think that you'd Commit me and, you'd split right quick and make yourself a life I'm not certain I can't tell when our little white fence all went to hell And I lost this game of house and it cost me you And so I can't find, all the things we held so close They slipped by, as I hid behind the clouds of smoke I know I'm all to blame but all the same, I'll still try and do everything I can to change Maybe when you've wrecked the best of us, it'll dawn on you what's left of us, Is worth more than furs and gold and jewels to you You jumped to rash conclusions, trust never was your strong suit, Someone hurt you bad and now I don't know what to do And still I can't find all the things we held so close They slipped by as I hid behind the clouds of smoke I know I'm all to blame but all the same I'll still try And do everything I can to change And still I can't find all the things we held so close They slipped by as I hid behind the clouds of smoke I know I'm all to blame but all the same I'll still try and do everything I can to change

How Long 05:00
And with a subtle twist of the blade, You take the pain away, And for a while I'm whole again Though it always ends the same And with a sudden change of fate, It's like a slap right to my face, You've gone and shook my faith, Yeah you always shake my faith How long til I come to my senses? Lettin' this slip passed my defenses Think by now I'd learn my lesson And recognize this misdirection Or like when You tug with all you got but You're just pullin' out the rug from Underneath your feet and you tumble down I try to go with what I know but I only know what I've been taught so I built this house of cards on broken ground How long til I come to my senses? Lettin' this slip passed my defenses Think by now I'd learn my lesson And recognize this misdirection So tell me how long tell me how long? (How Long!) I can't tell you how long can't tell you how long … [oh] So tell me how long tell me how long (How Long!) I can't tell you how long can't tell you how long … [oh] Cause gettin' up is getting harder (Getting harder) And staying asleep feels just the same (just the same, just the same) And all my dreams they seem much farther (seem much farther) And the nightmare's worst when I'm awake How long til I come to my senses? Lettin' this slip passed my defenses Think by now I'd learn my lesson And recognize this misdirection
