1. Empty Batteries
[Verse 1: Elias Soriano & B.C. Kochmit]
I won’t let you die off
Like a suicidal battery
Colored black in the back of a Friday the Thirteenth
Neon sign, dripping poison red, come on!
In fact, the facts are black and white
Stacked and used against us all
Yeah, lacks a sense so uncommon
A difference in opinion that’s begging to be forgotten (oh, oh)
‘Cause it’s rotten

[Chorus 1: Elias Soriano & B.C. Kochmit]
Transaction unsatisfactory (oh)
(‘Cause it’s rotten)
Compassion, an empty battery
They’re making sad machines (oh, oh)
Then they turn eighteen
(‘Cause it’s rotten)
Transaction unsatisfactory

[Verse 2: Elias Soriano]
I won't let you die off
This isn’t that holiday feeling at all
Put away decorations, ugh
Relax on a meditation
Medication stacked
In fact, it’s black and white
Stacked and used against us all
It’s an abomination revelation
Evolution, revolution

[Chorus 2: Elias Soriano & B.C. Kochmit]
Transaction unsatisfactory (oh, oh, oh)
(‘Cause it’s rotten)
Compassion, an empty battery
They’re making sad machines (oh, oh)
Then they turn eighteen
(‘Cause it’s rotten)
Transaction unsatisfactory

[Bridge: B.C. Kochmit]
Oh, (oh) oh
Oh, (oh) oh

[Chorus 2: Elias Soriano & B.C. Kochmit]
Transaction unsatisfactory (oh, oh, oh)
(‘Cause it’s rotten)
Compassion, an empty battery
They’re making sad machines (oh, oh)
Then they turn eighteen
(‘Cause it’s rotten)
Transaction unsatisfactory

[Outro: Elias Soriano & B.C. Kochmit]
Turning the light into something I can bend (oh, oh)
Into something just to find out that it’s worthless in the end
Turning the light into something I can bend (oh, oh)
Into something just to find out that it’s worthless in the end
2. Chaos and Earthquakes
[Verse 1]
Black operations using money color black
Dark webs getting spun so politically correct
Watchin' everybody fight each other
Sister versus brother
Peace versus war
Rich against the poor
Different versus different
Bed versus the floor
Wall versus the door
Shore black, water black, money, black
Money backing greed, back in season
Spring fall in summer for unnatural reasons

[Pre-Chorus 1]
Wanna decide which side? You're a goner
Don't know which evil side is upon us this time
Mind your business. Stay in line
Find your calling. Enterprise

[Chorus]
Cutting away all the red tape
Leaving things in a state of chaos and earthquakes
Chaos and earthquakes
Cutting away all the red tape
Leaving things in a state of chaos and earthquakes
Chaos and earthquakes

[Verse 2]
This is maniacal, entire societies are falling
Without a net underneath ‘em
And no one digging ‘em out
The fire has gotten out of control
We got no water, no buckets, and we’re lucky if tomorrow comes
"Why" isn't important anymore
Sure, I'd like to know that need-to-know information
But when I know it
What reactions will it cause
When they finally show up
Dressed up, amped up, in a black car?

[Pre-Chorus 2]
Wanna decide which side? You're a goner
Don't know which evil side is upon us this time
Mind your business. Stay in line
Find your glory, enterprise

[Chorus]
Cutting away all the red tape
Leaving things in a state of chaos and earthquakes
Chaos and earthquakes
Cutting away all the red tape
Leaving things in a state of chaos and earthquakes
Chaos and earthquakes

[Guitar Solo]

[Chorus]
Cutting away all the red tape
Leaving things in a state of chaos and earthquakes
Chaos and earthquakes
Cutting away all the red tape
Leaving things in a state of chaos and earthquakes
Chaos and earthquakes

[Outro]
Cutting away all the red tape, cut away all the red tape
Of chaos and earthquakes
Chaos and earthquakes
Cutting away all the red tape, cut away all the red tape
Of chaos and earthquakes
Chaos and earthquakes
3. Fix This
[Verse 1]
It's all kind of a dream
A messed up dream with a messed up theme
In a messed up head
Pass out in bed from too much to drink and not enough to eat
Food for thought. Processes
All the stresses of the world
On my shoulders, on my chest and on my mind, and on my conscience

[Pre-Chorus 1]
There's a name for all of this
A shame in all of this
Done watching in disbelief
Done turning the other cheek
Doesn't seem right to me
But maybe this is how it's all supposed to be?

[Chorus]
You don't have to be below this
But you don't wanna make things right
(You don't really wanna fix this
You don't really wanna fix this)
You don't have to be alone on this
But you don't wanna make things right
(You don't really wanna fix this)
You don't really wanna fix this

[Post-Chorus]
You don't really wanna fix this

[Verse 2]
Carnivorous, with a significant amount of serious
Oblivious, with a significant amount of indifference
Walls don’t always protect from losing respect
From choosing a set, from cursing the name
Laying the blame, on my mind and on my conscience

[Pre-Chorus 2]
There's a name for all of this
But maybe this is how it's all supposed to be

[Chorus]
You don't have to be below this
But you don't wanna make things right
(You don't really wanna fix this
You don't really wanna fix this)
You don't have to be alone on this
But you don't wanna make things right
(You don't really wanna fix this)
You don't really wanna fix this

[Refrain]
You don’t really wanna fix this
You don’t really wanna fix this

[Guitar Solo]

[Break]
You don't have to be below this
But you don't wanna make things right

[Chorus]
You don't have to be below this
But you don't wanna make things right
(You don't really wanna fix this
You don't really wanna fix this)
You don't have to be alone on this
But you don't wanna make things right
(You don't really wanna fix this)
You don't really wanna fix this

[Outro]
You don’t have to be
Have to be, have to be, have to be
You don’t have to be
Have to be, have to be, have to be
You don't have to be below this
But you don't wanna make things right
4. Crashing
[Verse 1]
Get it out, you started going in already
Say what you wanna really wanna say already
I’ll relax when you relax
This is long gone off the rails
Off the scales already

[Pre-Chorus]
Don’t need to put on a show anymore
Don’t need to know what you think anymore
Won’t ever make that mistake anymore

[Chorus]
‘Cause now, I know that this is what it tastes like
But was it worth the days
I created that will follow
And why this is so hard to swallow?

[Verse 2]
There’s nothing more left to tell me
Nothing more left to serve
Nothing more left to scare me!
Nothing more left to learn
Nothing, but bad reactions
Nothing, but counteractions
Let’s end this interaction, see…

[Pre-Chorus]
Don’t need to put on a show anymore
Don’t need to know what you think anymore
Won’t ever make that mistake anymore

[Chorus]
‘Cause now, I know that this is what it tastes like
But was it worth the days
I created that will follow
And why this is so hard to swallow?

[Refrain]
Swallowing
Swallowing

[Bridge]
What makes you the judge and jury?
What makes this come all so easy?
Am I doing wrong?
What am I doing wrong
That has me crashing? (Crashing down)

[Chorus]
‘Cause now, I know that this is what it tastes like
But was it worth the days
I created that will follow
And why this is so hard to swallow?

[Outro]
Swallowing
5. Passive Aggressive
[Intro]
Woah, woah, woah
Woah, woah, woah

[Verse 1]
I don’t need no apologies put in front of me
I got a better use for passive aggressive abuse
Throwing shots, dressing them up
Like it’s the end of October and every face is covered
Love it or not, this is so blazing hot
I gotta drop another one and walk away slow motion
Letterbox shot from a high-def camera
With a high-budget background explosion
Break-through flowing at a break neck speed
At a wrecking ball’s pace
Don’t act complacent
Let’s face it, we gotta get outta here before it all burns to ashes
Words turn crime to passion
All the evidence you’re hiding in the basement
Complacent fashionistas
All the evidence you’re hiding in the basement is coming to light

[Pre-Chorus]
Your scattered thoughts and lack of good intentions
Tells me why you’re so passive aggressive with me

[Chorus]
So I give the best of me
(Tells me why you’re passive aggressive with me)
Just to see the worst in you
(That tells me why you’re passive aggressive)

Shave just a little more off the top
Watch everything come spilling out
Engrave the meaning of the message
On your face and set the mood for once
Attach the back of your mind to match what we both know
You have inside and wants to react
Like a deer stepping in front of a bus
Look, you’re not fooling anybody
With that slick back, hide it all
With that lipstick on a hog
It’s still a pig
You’re not fooling anybody
Stop trying to think of the quickest way to distract
The safest way to react
Make a statement with a basis
Yeah, you’re not fooling anybody anymore

[Pre-Chorus]
Your scattered thoughts and lack of good intentions
Tells me why you’re so passive aggressive with me

[Chorus]
So I give the best of me
(Tells me why you’re passive aggressive with me)
Just to see the worst in you
(That tells me why you’re passive aggressive)

[Guitar Solo]

[Chorus]
So I give the best of me
(Tells me why you’re passive aggressive with me)
Just to see the worst in you
(Tells me why you’re passive aggressive with me)

[Outro]
The meaning in your message (So I give the best of me)
You’re trying to hide it from me
Your lack of good intentions (Just to see the worst in you)
Tells me why you’re passive aggressive
6. Dodge Your Destiny
[Verse 1: Elias Soriano]
The physics involved in all this
Are forcing me to do the math
And test the integrity
The make up
The break down of materials
Serial numbers don't even match up
In fact, they don't even show up
When you call and compare them for authenticity
Auspicious, and a little malicious
Ignoring the plausible verses impossible
Verses colossal fuck ups
Verses a loss in pressure
Verses the awful truth
That none of us will ever…

[Chorus: Elias Soriano & B.C. Kochmit]
Dodge our destiny
Dodge our destiny (your destiny!)
Dodge our destiny
Dodge our destiny (your destiny!)
Dodge your destiny
Your destiny, your destiny
Dodge our destiny (your destiny!)

[Verse 2: Elias Soriano]
It's gonna take a little more than moonlight
To cool down this hell of a hot day
Hell of a way to make a statement, drop a lick
And make a dash for the basement
When you're falling off
Catching your fall
Fetching the ball tossed, yeah
Just to give it all back
You're slipping up
Running circles in the bathtub
No rubber mat gluing down any kinda love act
Verses colossal fuck-ups
Verses a loss in pressure
Verses the awful truth
That none of us will ever…

[Chorus: Elias Soriano & B.C. Kochmit]
Dodge our destiny
Dodge our destiny (your destiny!)
Dodge our destiny
Dodge our destiny (your destiny!)
Dodge your destiny
Your destiny, your destiny
Dodge our destiny (your destiny!)

[Interlude: Elias Soriano]
Dodge your destiny
Dodge your destiny
Dodge your destiny
Dodge your destiny
Dodge your destiny
Dodge your destiny
Dodge your destiny
Dodge your destiny

[Guitar Solo: B.C. Kochmit]

[Chorus: Elias Soriano & B.C. Kochmit]
Dodge our destiny
Dodge our destiny (your destiny!)
Dodge our destiny
Dodge our destiny (your destiny!)
Dodge your destiny
Your destiny, your destiny
Dodge our destiny (your destiny!)
7. Wheel Against Will
[Verse 1: Elias Soriano]
No uphill battles, just wars
Coming to shore dropping literary soldiers
Bold enough to hold the line
Era-defining with the revolution on my shoulders
Breaking spokes on the wheel
That's turning girl against boy
Boy against girl, world against man
Man against world
The average soul is on a path to starving from…

[Pre-Chorus: Elias Soriano]
Lack of any kind of feeling connected to compassion
Compartmentalizing every action
The wheel controlling this machine is about to be broken

[Chorus: Elias Soriano with Rasheed Thomas & B.C. Kochmit]
Metal rubbing against steel - lifeless
(Wheel against will)
You're rusted over. I'm busting loose
(Wheel against will)
Metal rubbing against steel - lifeless
(Wheel against will)
Oh, you're rusted over. I'm busting loose
(Wheel against will)

[Verse 2: Elias Soriano]
'Round and around and around
Whittle down every tooth
Every gear inside going 'round
Common ground ain't so common on the feet
When the ground is a street
Made of all the broken dreams
Of the weak, the poor, the feeble, and the meek
Powerless, helpless, homeless on the street
Cowardice, gutless, spineless, heartless
Call 'em misbegotten
'Cause it's gotten so rotten from…

[Pre-Chorus: Elias Soriano]
Lack of any kind of feeling connected to compassion
Compartmentalizing every action
The wheel controlling this machine is about to be broken

[Chorus: Elias Soriano with Rasheed Thomas & B.C. Kochmit]
Metal rubbing against steel - lifeless
(Wheel against will)
You're rusted over. I'm busting loose
(Wheel against will)
Metal rubbing against steel - lifeless
(Wheel against will)
Oh, you're rusted over. I'm busting loose
(Wheel against will)

[Guitar Solo: B.C. Kochmit]

[Refrain: Elias Soriano with Rasheed Thomas & B.C. Kochmit]
Wheel against will

[Chorus: Elias Soriano with Rasheed Thomas & B.C. Kochmit]
Metal rubbing against steel - lifeless
(Wheel against will)
You're rusted over. I'm busting loose
(Wheel against will)
Metal rubbing against steel - lifeless
(Wheel against will)
Oh, you're rusted over. I'm busting loose
(Wheel against will)

[Outro Chorus: with Rasheed Thomas & B.C. Kochmit]
Metal rubbing against steel - lifeless
(Wheel against will)
You're rusted over. I'm busting loose
(Wheel against will)
Metal rubbing against steel - lifeless
(Wheel against will)
Oh, you're rusted over. I'm busting loose
(Wheel against will)
8. Milestone
[Verse 1]
Whenever you get the instructions
Whenever you get that eruption
Whenever you get the conviction
Whenever you lose the corruption
Whatever you bring to the table
Whatever you’re willing and able to do
Whenever you wanna be stable
Try being a little more willing and able than you give a shit
Take a minute and work at it
Take a ticket and wait a second
And straighten out this crooked, wicked picket fence
Picking up trash in the front yard
And the backlash is a lack of attention inside the house
You need attention inside the house

[Pre-Chorus 1]
You need affection inside the house
You need reflection inside the house
But there’s no mirrors inside the house
You need reflection. You need reflection

[Chorus 1]
Section by section - layer by layer
Problems on the inside
Un-package the players and the naysayers
Saying all the naysaying
Playing all their games
Hiding all their real faces from the public come out

[Post-Chorus]
Chalk it up as another milestone
Yeah, yeah

[Verse 2]
Coming out harder second time around
Bound for greatness
Wearing out everybody lined up
To body all the bases
The moral, the lack of morality
Itching and scratching
Bitching and lacking the value to even
Invest in a sure thing
Weeding out all the stranger things
High minded, kid approved, blindsided
Step into black jackets, dust swirls
Living in the upside-down world
Flack jackets, limo cars, gold bars, cut pearls
Celebrity all from a selfie
We’re living in the upside-down world

[Pre-Chorus 2]
You want affection inside the house
You need reflection inside the house
But there’s no mirrors inside this house
You need reflection. You need reflection

[Chorus 2]
Section by section - layer by layer
Problems on the inside
Un-package the players and the naysayers
Saying all the naysaying
Playing all their games
Hiding all their real faces from the public
Section by section - layer by layer
Problems on the inside
Un-package the players and the naysayers
Saying all the naysaying
Playing all their games
Hiding all their real faces from the public come out

[Bridge]
You need affection inside the house
You need reflection inside the house
But there’s no mirrors inside the house
You want reflection inside the house
You want affection inside the house
You need reflection inside the house
But there’s no mirrors inside this house
You need reflection. You need reflection

[Chorus 2]
Section by section - layer by layer
Problems on the inside
Un-package the players and the naysayers
Saying all the naysaying
Playing all their games
Hiding all their real faces from the public
Section by section - layer by layer
Problems on the inside
Un-package the players and the naysayers
Saying all the naysaying
Playing all their games
Hiding all their real faces from the public come out

[Outro]
Chalk it up as another milestone
Yeah
Chalk it up as another milestone
9. Feel the Way I Feel
[Verse 1]
I’m not feeling any better doing this the right way
Tried to stay classy
Didn’t make it any better
Just wanna get nasty
Get my hands dirty
Leave very little question how I feel
No need to get wordy, no

[Pre-Chorus]
You act the way you do, so I feel the way I feel
You do the things you do, so I feel the way I feel
The lie between the truth is so close to reveal
So you do the things you do, so I feel the way I feel

[Chorus]
‘Cause you do the things you do
Your blood will have to spill for now
When I feel the way I feel
‘Cause you do the things you do
Your blood will have to spill for now
When I feel the way I feel

[Verse 2]
Both of my hands are tied
And my brain is fried thinking of a way that I can just get even with you
I know it’s not politically correct for me to wanna snap your neck
But there’s no other way that I can hide when my hands are tied

[Pre-Chorus]
You act the way you do, so I feel the way I feel
You do the things you do, so I feel the way I feel
The lie between the truth is so close to reveal
So you do the things you do, so I feel the way I feel

[Chorus]
‘Cause you do the things you do
Your blood will have to spill for now
When I feel the way I feel
‘Cause you do the things you do
Your blood will have to spill for now
When I feel the way I feel

[Bridge]
Shaking every monster that awakens
Knowing that there’s something wrong
Telling me to pierce the surface
When you’re all just made of stone
Telling me to have some purpose
When you have none of your own
Not the face that I expected when you’re rational

[Chorus]
‘Cause you do the things you do
Your blood will have to spill for now
When I feel the way I feel
‘Cause you do the things you do
Your blood will have to spill for now
When I feel the way I feel

[Outro]
‘Cause you do the things you do
Do the things you do
So I feel the way I feel
10. Position One
[Verse 1]
Let’s put a round in it
Make sure it’s done
This conversation can’t live another minute
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
Let’s go back to the beginnin’
Position one
‘Cause our positions have got our bodies spinnin’
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
We’re stuck on back and forth again
We lack the talent to pretend there’s a problem here
It’s clear as day what you really wanna say so

[Pre-Chorus]
Say it already. Get it outta the way
We’re there already. Get it outta the way
Scared already? Outta the way
Endured enough? Outta the way!

[Chorus]
I’ll never let you break me down inside, inside, inside, inside, inside
I’ll never let you break me down inside, inside, inside, inside, inside

[Verse 2]
Let’s go back to the beginning
Position one
‘Cause our positions have got our bodies spinnin’
Ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh, ooh
This “take it or leave it” attitude has gotten so rude
Gotten so low, got the keys to the car in hand
Ran outta patience ‘bout a year ago

[Pre-Chorus]
Say it already. Get it outta the way
We’re there already. Get it outta the way
Scared already? Outta the way!
Endured enough? Outta the way!

[Chorus]
I’ll never let you break me down inside, inside, inside, inside, inside
I’ll never let you break me down inside, inside, inside, inside, inside

[Refrain]
You won’t have to relive this
Not even one last time
Never let you break me down inside, inside, inside, inside, inside

[Chorus]
I’ll never let you break me down inside, inside, inside, inside, inside
I’ll never let you break me down inside, inside, inside, inside, inside

[Outro]
You won’t have to relive this
Not even one last time
Never let you break me down inside, inside, inside, inside, inside
