1. Defy
Lifecycles & planned obsolescence
A perfect trap disguised as assistance
It takes the pain away.
It takes the pain away.

Control the sentience of the masses
Relief replaced with silent disaster
But I won't fade away.
No, I won't fade away.

I defy, this hopelessness
I defy, your callousness
I defy, Irreverent, I will rise
I see through your disguise, & all your lies.
I defy.

A numbing cure for the common existence.
Replace security for subsistence.
It takes the pain away.
It takes the pain away.

Victimize, enable, beguile
A body count without a reprisal
But I won't fade away,
No, I won't fade away.

Sometimes the pain of life's too much to mitigate
But I refuse to march into an early grave.
2. Instincts
Beware the serpents in the leaves,
& their deception,
An outstretched h&, Closed to a fist,
Becomes a weapon.

I see the damage they have done.
I see the battle’s just begun.
I know the answer lies inside,
I feel it when I close my eyes.

Through disaster & decay,
Survive to fight another day.
When there's no time for you to question,
Every single step you take,
Press on, & trust in your instincts.

Break down the barriers of fear,
& superstition.
Listen to your primal past,
& intuition.

You'll see the damage they have done
You'll see the war is never won,
You'll know the answer lies inside.
You'll feel it when you close your eyes.

Kill or be killed, (stand & fight)
sink or swim, (run & hide)
The answer lies within
3. Back to Me (3:18)
No turning back now,
I'm moving ahead toward the way out.
Don't you hate how,
we get left behind in the fallout.

Take a breath and take heart
Instead of pulling apart
When you find yourself back at the start.

Every part of me
Catches on fire underneath
When I ignite, you'll see.
Maybe I can light the way,
I can light the way back to me.

I won't stand down,
as I feel the ground begin to crack now.
So I cry out,
the same call to arms but with a new sound.

Take a breath and take heart,
When you are falling apart
And you don't even know where to start.

Every part of me
Catches on fire underneath,
when I Ignite, you'll see
Maybe I can light the way,
I can light the way back to me.

Let hope be everything that you need,
To march to a victory,
When you can't feel the difference between,
An inch and infinity.

Every part of me
Catches on fire underneath,
when I Ignite, you'll see
Maybe I can light the way,
I can light the way back to me.
4. Sunflower
Wait,
You'll see it all around you when you find,
The light that makes you bloom,
Before your pride,
& petals start to fall around you
I can't be the one to catch them when you're crashing down.

Can you break away from it all, before it drags you under?

Stay,
You’ll feel it all around you when you find
A way to make it through,
Cross the line
Don't find yourself in need of rescue,
I can't be the one to catch you.

Can you break away from it all, before it drags you under?

Break & separate.
5. Unbreakable (4:09)
There are weapons in the sound,
And they echo all around.
You feel the bitter sting as you fall to the ground.

Memories and plans forgone,
Pave the way for fear to spawn,
To find a vein to feast upon.
Hoping I become undone.

But I'm not afraid,

I'm unbreakable
Can't defeat me, though I'm bleeding
Unbreakable
Though I'm bending, I'll never break.

Throwing caution to the wind,
Learning how to fight again,
I carry on regardless of the shape I'm in.

Every torch and pitchfork thrown.
Only makes the fire grow.
When it engulfs you, you will know.
That I will not be overthrown.

And I'm not afraid,

I'm unbreakable
Can't defeat me, though I'm bleeding
Unbreakable
Though I'm bending, I'll never break.

Through the firestorm, I will remain,
And you will know where you stand.

I'm not afraid,

I'm unbreakable
Can't defeat me, though I'm bleeding
Unbreakable
Though I'm bending, I'll never break.

I WILL REMAIN.
6. Vertigo
Motion, breaking the space,
The steps I retrace,
The ground feels like an ocean,
Writhing in pain, I try to explain,
The words just come out,
Broken like the limbs we used to crawl,
With hopeful eyes, into the sun.

My equilibrium becomes delirium.

Drifting in the tide, in the undertow.
Slowly going blind in the afterglow.
I am falling faster, vertigo.
Learning how to hold on, by letting go.

My spinning satellite head,
Disoriented,
It gravitates & spirals,
To find you instead, a means to an end.
A force that conquers,
Broken Moons & hollow worlds,
Suspended, motionless.
Collapse & coalesce.

My equilibrium sent to oblivion.

Drifting in the tide, in the undertow.
Slowly going blind in the afterglow.
I am falling faster, vertigo.
Learning how to hold on, by letting go.

How can you say that everything is meaningless,
When we are the product of such a random disaster?

Drifting in the tide, in the undertow.
Slowly going blind in the afterglow.
I am falling faster, vertigo.
Learning how to hold on to you,
By letting go.
7. Money
8. How Will You Live
It's time for a fight,
Now they're drawing their lines,
& you know it's not right,
When you're stuck picking sides.

It's the invisible enemy.

If I can't see it, then how can I believe it,
Tell me how will you live?
If you hide what eats you alive when no one sees you,
Tell me how will you live?

It's time for a fight,
Between the heart & the mind,
& you know it's not right,
When you're stuck picking sides.

It's the invisible enemy.

When fear & pain suffocate,
Tell me how will you live?
Will you disclose or will you break?
Tell me, how will you live?
9. On The Inside
Throw away these hollow bones.
Like water from a stone,
I try to find the answers in the fractures.

Underneath the surface,
I believe there's a purpose.

I hope you know we all suffer.
Slipping under,
But only on the inside.
Our hidden fear, overtaking.
We are breaking.
But only on the inside.
Can't you see that this is killing me?
But only on the inside.

Hope is all we used to know,
When reaping what we sow.
I try to find the harvest in the famine.

Underneath the surface,
I believe there's a purpose.

I hope you know we all suffer.
Slipping under,
But only on the inside.
Our hidden fear, overtaking.
We are breaking.
But only on the inside.
Can't you see that this is killing me?
But only on the inside.
10. Warzone (3:13)
The silence brings a panic.
It fills the empty space.
To feed this paranoia,
Trapped a mental cage.
The rough & jagged edges,
That line this feeble state,
Prevent my hands from gripping.
Oh, how they shake.

This is a warzone.

A hurricane of anger.
The howling winds of rage.
An ocean of confusion.
The storm inside of me.
Slowly losing control.
Desperate for a glimpse of hope.

This is a warzone.

The seconds feel like hours.
The minutes pass like days.
Begin to count down from ten,
& don't forget to,

Breathe in tranquility.
Breathe in serenity.
Breathe in a sense of relief.
Before it escapes.

This is a warzone.

But, I am fighting.
I am fighting back.
11. Forever YDG'n
You heard that I was dead
& now you can't get me out of your head.

You thought that I was gone,
But I've been waiting to say this for so long

You know you really make me sick
Reused that line, because the shoe fits.
While you dug your pit, I built a bridge.
Walked across & now I'm over it.

I hope it keeps you up at night

You hateful fake,
There's no stopping me or getting in my way.
One day.
You will realize that you're to blame.
& I bet you never stopped to think,
What didn't kill just built & strengthened me.

Bring the heat.
I'm forged in flame.

Every stick & stone you throw at me,
My skin thickens while you just grow weak,
A failed lesson in each one you cast.
You turned your house into a pile of glass.

I hope it keeps you up at night. Yeah yeah,

I hope it never leaves your mind.
12. If We Were Ghost
If we were ghosts,
You could see inside of me,
Right into my soul.
To see what makes me up,
Or focus on the holes.

I’d be the world around the sun,
Hopelessly spinning round you, yeah.
Turning every leaf & stone,
But that's not the way it goes.

I have to wait until I get to the other side,
Just to see you,
Just to see you.
I have to wait until I get to the other side,
Because I never,
Never got to say goodbye.

If we were ghosts,
Floating high above the world,
Little would they know,
To end is to begin,
At least that's what I hope.

& for a moment I could be,
Something a bit more complete, yeah.
We never keep what makes us whole,
& that's just the way it goes.

I have to wait until I get to the other side,
Just to see you,
Just to see you.
I have to wait until I get to the other side,
Because I never,
Never got to say goodbye.

I lament with every breath I take,
The gentle sadness flows through everything
