Track Name: forever)/infinite
i've been told immortality isn't all that it seems but if we sleep we could live forever ever in our dreams and if you rip out my heart and smear it on a white wall we're dropping down to the floor and you and me become all and as we interlock bodies our trust is buried at sea desperate and alone we dream and i'm fading anticipating what will come deconstruction and i feel like i'm falling backwards we count the seconds as we hit the ground tell me tell me will you catch me tell me tell me will you catch me and i feel like i'm falling backwards we fade away when we make no sound tell me tell me will you catch me will you catch me as i'm falling down we will forget their world regret the years will pass remorse regress our lives escape one year too late our sleep we dream reality destruction is by nature self-destruction kills me yes it literally kills me corruption dances in the night as we feast and we all get a bite derailing progress yes we all will kill the progress yes it's just like destruction no careening stories as we drive them off the cliff and we burn in the explosion and we dance (dance) to the sound of whispers and we dance (dance) to the sound of whispers oh destination we the nation cancer causing loss of vision satisfaction no reaction atom-smashing danger danger fading glory non-responsive tiny plastic choking hazard big game hunting pollution then we all die and no one wins (1) and we dance to the sound of a whisper in my lungs consistent air self-restraint fabled words re-incarnation won't ever change our actions one more life struck down by the gun (/1) (2) all hope is lost if we could find any to begin with and we'd be fools and we die this is goodbye we were fools from the start (/2) my heart ripped out the blood drips down the wall and as the lights shut off the answers never come the wall left stained by the blood no notion of a future departs forever without a note just a whisper in my lungs just a whisper and i feel like i'm falling backwards we count the seconds as we hit the ground tell me tell me will you catch me tell me tell me will you catch me and i feel like i'm falling backwards we fade away when we make no sound tell me tell me will you catch me will you catch me as i'm falling down?

Track Name: "This world..." / These words...
Tied down to the metaphorical weight that was placed upon us by those that make the rules we flutter about with a false sense of knowledge and understanding as we lack the ability to look out our window and perceptually soak the information that has been given or has yet to be given we may never fully recognize a struggle other than our own and only untying the bow that frees us from this weight will let us understand that time and place should never affect our outlook on life and learning to open our minds past societal constraints placed upon us by those that make the rules will truly set us free this distance the frivolity of these standards and expectations entertaining our lack of expansion persistence maintain while you're on pins and needles facing your greatest fear not being one with the crowd taking limitations away from ideology desperate times call for revolution revolution revolution sam went to school just like every other day all the kids would call him names and laugh in his face not a day went by that he could get away from the kids and their names yeah the kids and their names they say go away sam nobody wants you around all the kids would push him down go home get lost another day just another routine day with the kids and their names yeah the kids and their names at night he'd find refuge in his room thinking why do things have to be this way to be this way but what doesn't kill you can only make you stronger and what you feel you should always stay true to yourself he would push on couldn't let them get him down he would have to walk in and face the music and he just stands while he imagines rubber bands cause one day cause one day cause one day he's gonna show them all and not a day went by sam didn't hold his head up high and words were running through his mind cause one day you'll see and sammy wears a smile on his face cause one day cause one day cause one day he's gonna show them all "this world will never stand in my way" these words held onto he'd say over and over and over and over again he knew the only thing that he felt all he ever wanted to be was a beautiful girl (x4) so sweet the sound (/x4) (1) tied down to the metaphorical weight that was placed upon us but that rope will come undone yeah we will cut down through the chains and as we utilize information and as we recognize anthers' struggle and as we open our minds and as we set ourselves free (/1) (2) (x2)you can be who you want to be you can see who you want to see you can live how you want to live we can be ourselves (/2) (3) (x4) so sweet the sound (/x4) (/3) and now she's turning heads and causing car wrecks and when she wears that dress she's got the boys all the boys sa-sa-saying ooh-la-la and now she's turning heads (and now she's turning heads) and causing car wrecks (car wrecks car wrecks) and when she wears that dress (that dress) she's got the boys samantha.
Track Name: Opaque
(1) what's with all the commotion obsessive compulsion eating at my brain as i streamline through this blue ocean in constant motion and lines are blurred oh and when we stop to look at our surroundings questioning boundaries and asking why we tear down walls and destroy borders disobey orders and stand up for ourselves hell and we'll fly and we'll fly away into shades into shades of gray and we'll fly and we'll fly away into shades into shades of gray we don't even listen before we speak (2) we're missing history every day gone by lasts a lifetime to me and i'll forget these frail pieces of what i've lived forget but not forgive my mind has emotions burn and we stop to look at our surroundings i've been a fool all along i've been a fool all along and i've earned back what i've lost in consciousness in moments i'll forget my life's made up of these but what if we're not here what if we've been deceived what do i care this place is all i know is that selling your soul i think it's worth the profit.
Track Name: finite/(or we may live
We're running out of time can we break away away away it's not a crime to live my life this way we're running out of time we live day to day to day to day but the sun will shine and we'll keep pushing on this way we're on the other side crooked mouths fill the air with the whispers slurring sounds from their stagnant forms thoughts of clouds and looks based on reaction stronger words have been spoken before and with our words and with these minds we will sing these songs as we move on through the end of time we can talk talk with the best of them but when we walk walk it can play a different story our fingerprints will teach us who we are as a whole and as our actions distinguish where our thoughts and our faces will go when we're gone as we fight toward the end just a mask that we mold so we fit in as we're bred we're running out of time can we break away away away it's not a crime to live my life this way we're running out of time we live day to day to day to day but the sun will shine and we'll keep pushing on this way we're on the other side this is not a this is not a test a test we will never we will never rest 'ver rest can we save our can we save ourselves ourselves this is not a we will never can we save our destination (x2) masking your face to blend in with the masses carry this charade to blend in with the masses (/x2).
