Track Name: NEW BLOOD
I feel the greyscale monotone empty meaning
Third person on the outside
I feel the hurricane inside when I'm still breathing
Transparent isolated machine

Everytime you try and bury me in an early grave
I crawl out and make you swallow all the words you say
All of a sudden you forgot all the things you did and I'm supposed to believe this?

Am I part of a system that just wants to watch me beg on my knees
And I'm supposed to believe this
Broken mechanism breathing down my neck for an opportunity

I'm not a part of the process
I'm not another victim to this industry
Keep on pushing down on the ceiling you'll always be beneath me

Keep on barking up the wrong tree
I'm not the new blood
I'm gonna bite the hand that never feeds
All of a sudden true colors start to paint a picture
Right in front of me

You feel like you're on top
It's too bad there's a long drop down
Empty handed and bought

I'm not a part of the process

I feel the greyscale monotone empty meaning
Third person on the outside
I feel the hurricane inside when I'm still breathing
Transparent isolated machine
Track Name: WAR MACHINE
ou can't corner a wolf with sheep
I already know everything you're gonna do to me
Tell me why
Why you got your eyes on me
I read the signs to predict my own reality

I'm sick
I'm alive
I'm tired
Am I
Like this

And I fight
Just to hide
Live my life
Do I
Want this

Overmind brainwashed the weak
But all your cryptic words are never going to get by me
Hands red tell me what's the point of all of this
Truths dead but your lies will never turn out to be

Born into a war machine
I already know everything you're going to do to me
The blood thins at the top of the tree
It comes back it never lets you sleep

I'm sick
It really doesn't matter
I'm tired
It doesn't matter
I'm sick
I'm alive
I'm tired
Am I
Like this

And I fight
Just to hide
Live my life
Do I
Want this

I know all the things you'll do to me
I can't escape my own reality
I know you always had it out for me
I'm pushing you out from the inside
I'm pushing you out of my mind

(I could make it better)
(When it doesn't matter)

All of the terrible people I'll meet
I wish I didn't feel like a war machine

I'm pushing you out from the inside
I'm pushing you out of my mind
Track Name: THE MORE YOU WANT THE LESS YOU GET
And all the things you want the most
Sometimes you got to learn to let it go

Maybe it will come right back to you
When you least expect it to

The more you want
The less you get
The less you get
It adds up and it feels like it never ends

Empty hands were all you knew
Just trying to keep your heart full

Maybe it wasn't meant for you
Maybe you needed something new

The more you want
The less you get
The less you get
It adds up and it feels like it never ends

They would love to watch you rot inside the ground
And tear you from the inside out without a sound

Is the grass always greener on the other side
I see you lose yourself thinking about it a hundred times
It's just what you want but not what you need
It's just what you want but not what you need

The more you want
The less you get
The less you get
It adds up and it feels like it never ends
Track Name: THE GOOD TIMES
And it's stuck in your lungs and I know that you feel like you wanna escape
Needle inside your vein it's the perfect place when you don't even think about what you say

Cause everybody always gets excited about the things that never happen
And everybody forgets all the things they say when you're not when you're not around them

You don't have to lie to me about the good times
You don't have to lie to me about the good times
And you could tell me bad bad things as long as long as they're true
Tell me all the sad sad things that are bothering you

And it's all in your head don't you wanna just feel like the words that you said
You don't have to pretend cause you know in the end that no one's here to be a helping hand

Cause everybody always gets excited about the things that never happen
And everybody forgets all the things they say when you're not when you're not around them

You don't have to lie to me about the good times
You don't have to lie to me about the good times
And you could tell me bad bad things as long as long as they're true
Tell me all the sad sad things that are bothering you

You don't have to lie to me
About the good times
You don't have to lie to me
About the good times
Everything you say is only hurting you
You're digging a hole deep deep down inside of you
Everything you say is never true
Never true

You don't have to lie to me about the good times
(Everything you say is hurting you)
You don't have to lie to me about the good times
(Everything you say is never true)
Track Name: IRON LUNG
My empty hands climb a ladder that doesn't exist
I'm being pushed down by the pressure of an iron fist
Your damage plan where the bottom of the bottom is full of empty promises
I was listening I was watching you
Distract us from the distance

I'm not sentimental about the things that never cared about me Never gave a shit about me

Another deal another vicious cycle waiting at my doorstep
Just another thing I'm gonna have to deal with
If you only knew what you put me through
You spit it out like a loaded gun your full of lies with a bullet tongue

Just another deal another vicious cycle waiting at my doorstep
Just another deal another vicious cycle I'm not gonna deal with

Wolves in the throne room
Wolves in the throne room
Wolves in the throne room
You want my empty hands to bleed

I'm not sentimental about the things that never cared about me Never gave a shit about me
