Track Name: Loud Enough
Yesterday
I spent every waking moment
questioning my moves;
ain't got nothing here to lose

as we

burn
slowly down;
Down in flames,
softly now;
Loud enough
to make all unreasonable answers
your own.

Midnight strikes again,
familiar face and open hands;
begging for a break,
a self-destructive choice to make

that we

learn
only now.
Nowadays,
wounded hours
turn into
reflections
that slowly been
turning you.

Their selfish ignorance'll make ya
a cynic and a coward if you let it in.
Those seeking reason gonna rise;
but all the rest,
they got a big surprise
waiting.

[Don't complicate it,
complicated,
complicated,
complicated.]

Lean, lean,
lean a little this way,
little one,
closer to the heart
that
brings us under, days are numbered.

Lean, lean,
lean a little this way,
little one,
closer to the heart
that
brings you, brings me,
wisdom

as we

burn,
slowly down;
down in flames,
softly now.
Loud enough
to shatter illusion before we give in.
Track Name: My Hands Are Tied
Inside open,
heartbroken
again.
Rising ocean,
slow motion
sinking.

That's it now, no regrets.
You cannot blame me for this.
My hands are tied,
no sacrifice in my mind.

That's it now, no regrets.
You cannot blame me for this.
My hands are tied,
no sacrifice in my mind.

Burn their papers;
our saviors
are dead.
Sold out their souls
for fool's gold
now rusted red.

That's it now, no regrets.
You cannot blame me for this.
My hands are tied,
no sacrifice in my mind.

That's it now, no regrets.
You cannot blame me for this.
My hands are tied,
no sacrifice in my mind.
Track Name: Blame
I choose not to forget
the bitterness;
clearly I can see that there is
a kinda look you give as if to say
"Oh my god, it's been
another year wasted away."

Caught up in disbelief,
angst and grief;
hanging over, hanging around
the bad news and crooked lines
with fear in mind,
but careful now
you're raising doubt.

Shameful one,
do you see just what they done?
Painful, huh?
When, finally, you see
when you see,
see just what they done

while you were out looking to place blame.

Like hell I'll waste away
any day
or moment on what coulda been.
Strung up now in between
two extremes
crawling over, crawling around.

Got ya playing in a wicked little game
with barely any way
to clear your head (enough said).
The path that our future takes,
ours to make,
so live it up or give it up.

Shameful one,
if only you seen what you done.
Painful, huh?
Finally, you see,
now you see,
see just what you'd done

while you were out looking to
place blame
place blame;
Your wounds bleed a dishonesty.
Place blame
place blame;
Your words bleed a dishonesty.

...and
all I see is dishonesty.
The direction, it seems,
that we're currently leaning
is taking a toll on our sanity.
In a familiar way,
with a hopeless conviction
fall further and further into submission.

Place blame
place blame;
all I see is dishonesty.
