I’m waving the same old white flag. All will is gone and I've had enough. Ain’t got no grip, no more sway. When fear lives on, it just weighs me down. I’ve buried my head in the sand. My blindfold is on. I can't face it off. When it’s clouding up, I’d run away. So pin me down. Please just talk me down. My back’s against the wall. I’ve never fought my angst, my issues. Disarmed by my own. Have you ever told me? My back’s against the wall. I’ve never took a chance at taming my demons at all. I gotta wake up before I hit the bottom. I’m pushed as far as I can breathe. I’m done barking at the wrong tree. Is that part of the game? The Ball’s in my court. Please, just let me play. You’d better call emergency. I'm freaking out, it's scaring me. Call me out! Ball is in my court. I gotta make a play.

Killdozer 02:40
The big day is truly coming up. Know the man you wronged will bring you down. Time is counting, time is counting down. Today, my wrath is showing up in this makeshift tank to tear you down. Are we going down? And I went crazy like you said. Predictable intents? You should have heard me yesterday. You drove me crazy like you said. We're facing off again but I’ll send you back to where you come from. Welcome to the rampage court today. I know this fucking town council has made me sick. Don't you know I’ll make it obvious when I get there? As long as my armoured shell keeps trampling down these streets, I'll go strong. I will fight and strike back all alone. Ramming down the herd I know that you don’t give a damn about my shit. Get what you deserve Don't you know, this time I'll stand my ground until the end? You woke up the thirst Revenge! Don't be surprised when I get fucking pissed. Now, let's quench the thirst Deranged, I will fight and strike back all alone.

The Motion 03:32
Come on, please don’t crush my intuition because it might yield the right solution. The skyline you point out is not illusional. I’m much closer now to climbing up the wall cause I need it. I’ll seek it my own way. Why giving up? I swear I’ll prove you wrong. Come on, please don’t crush my intuition. Don’t crush my imagination. You know it might kill the flame, the motion. It might kill the right solution. The skyline you’d black out is not illusional. It's gotten fucking visceral. I’m much closer now to breaking through the wall. Cause I need it, I’ll seek it my own way. I’ll dig it up, the answer you’d foregone. Yeah, I mean it. I’ll seek it my own way. Why giving up? I swear I’ll prove you wrong. Although you would barricade or lock me down, it’s too late. I am water to the cracks. Make no mistake. I'm breaking out. No status quo. In the end I just don’t belong. I know you think I'm just dreaming away. Don’t you know a spark can set the blaze? I'm breaking out. No status quo. In the end I just don’t belong. I don’t belong.

Dry Bite 03:12
When I look back I lose the count of broken bones and promises. A life spent falling from tightropes. Still, I haven't learned from the blows. Somehow, I fucking lost the count of every time I’ve been reckless. Filled up my every breath with smoke. So what? My blackened lungs still blow. Don't you understand I'll never roll it back. Would you believe it? I’ve Burnt both candle’s end so long ago. One foot in the grave, I’ve been to hell and back. I'm mocking at death. I’ve got nine lives to waste in a row. One more dry bite, I'm feeling blessed. I keep dodging the same bullets. I've never prayed for yesterday. I'll save it for some other day. I lost the count of every time I've been careless. I've played my hand ‘til I'm dead broke. So what? I’ll just chip in my damned soul.

The Host 03:27
I guess you've never felt the jab. Sneaky bite, watch your back. Once you're pricked it spreads like fire. I guess you've never realized something's living inside Once you're pricked you're feeding the leech. That blood-sucking roommate might just milk you dry. Acting as a Trojan horse fooling your mighty shield. Only letting you know you're screwed at the very end. Now you’re stabbed in the back. Twisted knife’s burnt your endings. As a dead-end host, you'll be sucked up ´til the end. You've tried, I know. You've tried to clean it on your own. Still trying, we know. The game ain’t over. Stand tight, it will do. Spread to the marrow of your bones. In vain, you’ll fight. This time game's over. Beware it moves along real fast. Sneaky bite, watch your back. Once you're pricked it spreads like fire. I think it's time to realize something's hiding inside. Once you're pricked you're feeding the leech. I guess it will eat you to the bone.

This is up to you my friend. So, the weakest be dead. See you right down the gutter. This is up to you and me. Baiting traps and clenching our fists. This is where we stand right now. By the stick and the stone, we’ll prevail or surrender. Tell me when we failed to shed light? choking on pride again. The knife you planted in my back left a wound that doesn’t seem to heal. As I assumed that we were up to something real. Everything has suddenly turned to black. Only deceit can explain we’ve gone off track. Only deceit. Bound to discord and treachery. A game meant to be played dirty. You won't pull me down running a cut-throat sign. I’ll bring you hell and misery ‘til I read defeat on your lips. You can't pull me down. Let's remember the time we've drawn this line. Stirring up the same old shit again. I can’t recall when things were clear back then. There’s nothing left to share but hatred. We’ve bled it out, got to burn another bridge. we’ll take down all our rage to another step. What else is left to care? This is up to you my friend, this is up to you and me. We’ve drawn this fucking line.

Alter Ego 03:23
Everyday, I fight and consume myself. Merging with the gray. Each and every stone I kick or I heft can't help chase the clouds away. These words are stuck in the back of my head. They ain't been coming up. The light is dead, off the top of my head. I just can't turn it up. Still, Hyde and Jekill storm inside of me. No, I cannot call this home. I’ll never call this home. Help me hold up all the pain. I can't shake these blues away. My nerves are tied, my skull is bound to break. Taking meds to fill this hole. Will I ever fill this hole? Save me, make me whole again. I can't shake these blues away. I'm burning out. Deep inside I'm nesting the plague. I'd bleed it out just to keep from dying away. These words are stuck in the back of my head. They ain't been coming up. The light is dead, off the top of my head. I just can't turn it up. I just can't turn it up. I gotta turn it up so, help me turn it.

Maze Dream 00:59
Woke up in the middle of the night. I can’t stop thinking back. *Hard feelings* Wistful of good moments I had. I may never stop thinking back. *Poor weakling* Welcome to your new world. Created by your own. No deeds follow your words. Pure failure going on. Hold on, stray from the herd. Wake up, keep moving on. Mazed all alone.

Some say misfortune lurks behind this door. Somehow, I chose not to shit on my leash anymore. I’ve sold my soul twice. Pawned for a fair price just to make it work. I'll keep an ear to the ground. This is how life goes. You gotta look around. You know you’ve got this, that burning fire in your guts. You just can’t fight this once you choose to move on. It’s all make or break. Yeah, it’s killing me now, but I’m trying my best not to miss out. It’s time to break bounds cause there is no greater leap of faith. Lost in vertigo. Now’s the time to break ground. What will I find? More than I would ever know. This is how life goes. You gotta look around. I’m not about to surrender. I swear I’ll never go back again. Come hell or high water, I’ll make it to the edge. Step back, don't look back, just leap out. The die is cast. Well, it’s up to me now. Step back, don't look back, just leap out. The die is cast. Just reach out for it now.

Evidence belongs to the past and your bullshit, down below. Every lie has turned out darker though I knew it long ago. Ever closer now than I would have thought. I wish I had pulled the reins before I see what’s been rotting down under. Have you ever shunned a light so bright (the bright truth) so your peace of mind wouldn’t slip away? I get used to ball it up and throw it out the window. It’s always been easier to faint than to bleed it. Let’s start over. Let’s save the broken bones. It’s always been easier to cave in and leave stones unturned. Evidence belongs to the past and your bullshit, down below. Every night’s getting darker and I don’t know where to go. It’s obvious how it’s in the way you talk. Still, I just can’t make you fall. Although something’s rotting down under again. I’d break away from the damage done and I’d shut up all the ghosts. However, your lies keep sneaking back in again.

Dare Me Once 03:03
I can't even face my own reality. Compelled to suit your plans, your mind and your thriving life. Your footsteps do fail me. I won’t split my heart anymore. I can't embrace my own reality. You keep weeding out my hopes, my dreams and what I’ve begun. I’ve broken your boundaries. You can’t pull the strings anymore. Your ideals are burning like chlorine on wide open sores. Never mind, I’ll find my way. You're looking at me through my mistakes. Does my intent hold any weight? It feels like I’m out of the frame. Cutting my teeth through my mistakes. What will I learn from all of this? It seems like it’s part of the game. What did you learn ever since? So, dare me once. I'll fail you twice. Hit me twice. I’ll get it once. Once for all, I'm so fucking gone. Your grimaced face tells me I should have given up before. And when I'm looking down the road, I'd throw your dreams down the sink again. Now you're laying on the ground, turned upside down. I won't come back, I’m gone away.
