Track Name: Initiate Pleasure Sequence Alpha Five Omega
Let's start fires and burn every liar
Track Name: I'm A Dinosaur
I swear this: I'll stand over your grave
Promises made, but not kept
Rest in peace
This one goes out to those without shame
Your reign is over and I am to blame
We are the kings of broken dreams
We will break down the walls you've created
While you oppressed, we plotted
We are faithless
We will not be ruled

What has this become?
Oh, how the mighty always fall
You spend your time behind everyone's back
Now the curtain is up, and your weakness exposed

You disgusting worthless coward
Your train has been derailed
Your regime overthrown
Your twisted mirror broken
I swear we'll break you down
You empty shell of a man
You know nothing but hate and deceit

Lie
Sleep
Betray

You disgusting worthless coward
Your train has been derailed
Your regime overthrown
Your twisted mirror broken
I swear we'll break you down
You empty shell of a man
You know nothing but hate and deceit

We are all caught in between
Your twisted games and broken deception
I swear to God, if you walk out that door
You'll walk out on your reason to live
Track Name: Plush
Sending postcards to class, subtlety, and tact
Wish you were here
Writing out eulogies to the past
Dead and gone
Drowning out words I can't take back
What's left to fear
Other than our own impending mortality
and the feeling of having a knife in your back?

I gave you everything, except a reason to leave
Were all the thrills you gained worth losing your family?
So say goodbye, one last time
My favorite liar
My favorite lie

*ahem*
I am a monster of your own design
So full of life, ready to die
I've got a kinetic side
It's something I get to keep locked in my mind
So tell me, what's left to say
When nothing is going to change at the end of the day
Your voice echoes through these walls
I hear every word you say

I gave you everything, except a reason to leave
Were all the thrills you gained worth losing your family?
So say goodbye, one last time
My favorite liar
My favorite lie x2
Track Name: Orpheus Looks Back
Oh, I'm just a figment
You're just a figment
Of our collective desparation
In time, I swear you'll find yourself at the end of your rope
Tied so tightly around your throat
But that's the way that it goes
When you tie yourself down to someone you do not know
I can hear the leaves change
They say that it's time to go

We'd be fools to lie
We know, this too, will die
Before you leave my life
You'll beg to say goodbye

I'll cross your name off my list
You'll cross the veins beneath your wrist
You'll cry to god
You'll ask yourself
"What did we do to deserve this?"
I will never be the good guy again
Protagonism is a capital sin
I can hear your choking tears
They say I can never win

We'd be fools to lie
We know, this too, will die
Before you leave my life
You'll beg to say goodbye x2
Track Name: Running In Place Is Not Hardcore (feat. Brian Eldridge)
My love
I hate you more than you'll ever know
My heart
Beats for what I despise the most
You are not the thing I thought you were
Your evil goes deeper than that
I fell in love with your mirage
I fell in love with a mask
We all spend so much time destroying each other
We all live our lives against one another
We've all been beat down and broken
We should be in this together

So my love, I'm begging you to change
Or you'll find yourself gasping for air
I can't bear to see you this way
But I know that you'd never care
I'll walk away
I'll say goodbye
To you, my life

Oh darling, I can not just watch you die
I know that I can't save you, but I still have to try
I'll burn down anyone who strikes against you
We can not let you die after all we've been through

So my love, I'm begging you to change
Or you'll find yourself gasping for air
I can't bear to see you this way
But I know that you'd never care
I'll walk away
I'll say goodbye
To you, my life

My Love

So all the scene kids who have nothing to prove, let me see you move
Track Name: Bear? No Bear!
Straight from the serpent's mouth
We'll see what it's all about
I'm gonna flush you out
This harlot's going down
Each word to leave your mouth
Each word to make you drown
They never make a sound
I hope that you feel proud

I swear I'll bury you
With every word you said
and every friend you turned
and every word you twisted
Don't let me hear a sound
No one can save you now
You should have seen this coming
You're all found out

The mess you've made is foul
(As is the taste of your mouth)
and I will scream it loud
There's no stopping me now
It's time to make you squirm
When will you ever learn?
I start fires for liars
We'll all watch as you burn

I swear I'll bury you
With every word you said
and every friend you turned
and every word you twisted
Don't let me hear a sound
No one can save you now
You should have seen this coming
You're all found out

They say that silence is golden
I've got the Midas touch
With my fingers around your neck
You'll stop talking so much
