Track Name: Some Version Of The Meaning Of Life
sell your thoughts to me
i'll provide the gun
and when no one's watching
you can have your fun

spray your mind on me
pull the trigger, son
it's some version of
the meaning of life
Track Name: The Day I Die
insignificant
i feel
i am all alone
with you here
feign the setting sun
to hide
told you everything
well I tried

on the day i die
will you then love me
in the grave I lie
will you forgive me

it's the little things
my dear
pain has never felt
more real
hey I'm broken up
inside
i feel dark and numb
well I tried

on the day i die
will you then love me
in the grave I lie
will you forgive me
Track Name: Dirty
​you sever the ties among you
and spit on the face of pride
'we're losing ourselves as people'
you scream from your place on high
i've got a little secret for you now
we're nothing in the scheme of things
so you can put away your crown
and spare us all

hey
it's you
wearing nothing but a bubble
with a snowflake theme
hey
will you
put away the victim bottle
and come clean
...you're as dirty as me

you feel that the clock is turning
against what you thought was right
and take on the heavy burdens
of people who aren't your kind
i've finally found the reason you cry
some feelings are an opiate
to a crippled crowd of....
the less significant

hey
it's you
wearing nothing but a bubble
with a snowflake theme
hey
will you
put away the victim bottle
and come clean
...you're as dirty as me
Track Name: Crocoduck Tears
there's no god, little one
he's a reason to scare the pain away
from those who should choose to fucking pray
'he gave his life' you say
'he'll save your life today'
why can't you just admit, right here
that the gun to your head
...is what you really fear

i never stopped believing
because of you
lost my faith in something
and followed through

there's no love, selfish one
is it easy for you to live a lie
while others submit and slowly die
'it's all a choice' you scream
'we have no voice, it seems'
someone has left the crazy here
with an irony shield
and fucking crocoduck tears

i never stopped believing
because of you
lost my faith in something
and followed through
Track Name: Stay Gone
​you up and left me
said you'd always be there
ignoring my pleas
i know you never cared
laid right there crying
there on the kitchen floor
thought i was dying
watching you walk out the door

but now.....i'm fine
i'm doing much better without you by my side
(goodbye dad)
stay gone......from me
since you walked out I've never been so fucking free
(goodbye dad)

you saw right through me
like i was never there
you reap what you sow
not worth a single tear
you chose the wrong son
a liar with a shady past
and raised up your gun
yold you that would be the last

but now.....i'm fine
i'm doing much better without you by my side
(goodbye dad)
stay gone......from me
since you walked out I've never been so fucking free
(goodbye dad)
Track Name: Inside
(instrumental)
Track Name: Brother
i know
you were there for me
i know
you aimed to please
but i have found
my way home

embrace the fire
i'll stoke the embers for you
some will deny me
and those untouched will see me through

brother
you set upon me
brother
until you left me
i have found
my way home

embrace the fire
i'll stoke the embers for you
some will deny me
and those untouched will see me through
Track Name: Triggered
​dragging knuckles through muddy waters
chains are bound to my broken feet
a victory for my oppressors
was there no warning sign for me?
it's not how we envisioned
they're growing quite unkind
we've failed our desperate missions
and lost our fucking minds

hell yeah
you got me triggered

this broken world is our starvation
we're slaves to our hypocrisy
i thought i could do this without you
but you're the drug i fucking need
we enter our decisions
and slowly fall behind
we trust our televisions
our thoughts now fully primed

hell yeah
you got me triggered
Track Name: Fade Away
(Act I)

i'm not the man i used to be
i'm far from becoming free
stuck until the final bell
and lately...
i'm scared of your eyes watching me

i'm not a fan of humanity
i've given up on your disease
trapped inside my holding cell
and lately...
i'm scared of your eyes haunting me

(Act II)

standing all alone
naked and dethroned
i've turned to stone
rigid and sometimes cold

forced to fake the pain
this all seems insane
yeah
nothing more to gain
i'll just fade away

no longer
at your beck and call
i, too, can surely fall
i will not fucking crawl
your savior he lost it all

(Finality)
