Track Name: Trick Yourself
Midnight pollution of thought makes you
Dream that you’re lost
No more sun and you can’t go on so you
Look for an answer in your head
Take a look into your dilated pupils,
Disappointed with the blackness inside
Expectations of an answer within yourself and a
Defective school of thought
Older now than the innocence you crave,
Still not tall enough to see mother's eyes
Paralyzed by the sight of your aging hands
As they hold tomorrow's end

How can you tell what went wrong with the plans,
You weren't watching the crash
You've been carried too long and you can't understand
How to walk on your own
Train yourself to feel loved when there's no one to hold you
By their side
Keep away from the notion of being alone,
It will never lose its strength
Fill the void with anything you find,
It's the only way to go
You will always be hungry, even if you're full,

Just trick yourself once again
Track Name: Fool
You're playing games but you haven't read the rules
I'm playing along but I'm not in the mood
Baby don't believe me when I'm acting cool
I'm a fool for you but I just don't say it when I can
I just don't say it when i can

You've come much closer to spilling your heart
And you act like you mean what I'm afraid to say
I can think of the words when we're far apart
The pressure is heavier when I see your eyes, your eyes

Please don't stress yourself, I'm okay
Only a little insane just like you
Enough to get a long way without you
Undress your ripening heart
So I can see myself in your eyes
Chasing the butterflies
You can guess how close you are
To conquering all that I am

Don't want to scare you away
But I'm selfish, I want you all to myself
Let's not get high, it's what I do when i miss you
Let's not get high, I'm right here we are right now

Please don't stress yourself, I'm okay
Only a little insane just like you
Enough to get a long way without you
Undress your ripening heart
So I can see myself in your eyes
Chasing the butterflies
You can guess how close you are
To conquering all that I am

Let's not get high, it's what I do when i miss you
Let's not get high, I'm right here we are right now
Let's not get high, it's what I do when i miss you
Let's not get high, I'm right here we are right now
I'm right here we are right now
I'm right here we are right now
I'm right here we are right now
Track Name: I Believe You
I used to think you were somewhere that I couldn't find you
But I was set to go to the ends of the world
In search of something that I wasn't really ready to see

I could have stayed away, left a blank spot on the map
I would have been fine but I needed to know
I can only blame myself
And I didn't think it would hurt, I didn't think it would hurt

Do you believe me now?
Do you believe me now?
Did I repeat myself enough for it to stick to you?
So you believe me now

I didn't listen to you, I didn't hear myself think
You didn't have to go
Once I found out, no doubt, it all makes sense
It's just too much for me, it's just to much for me

I believe you now
I believe you now
I didn't help me that you told me, I still went on my own
But I believe you now

I believe you now
Track Name: Someone Else
Break away from my line
You await our time
Free yourself from the hallway you walk
Down as you tell everyone what you are
You're someone else

Dream of when you were young
Stealing sweets, playing games with yourself
No control, let it roll, no stopping now
Blame it on what you were
You're someone else
I don't know who you are
You're someone else

Speaking lies through your hand
No one else understands who you were
Underneath your disguise, you're someone else
Underneath your disguise, you're someone else
Track Name: Underneath
I am on the ground, holding you up
You’re smiling down with the sun
I am underneath every step
I never let you touch the floor

Oh, won’t you ever repay me
You don’t have to repay me
I’ll never tell you I’m the beast of burden
Pulling us all along

I am under your skin
I am in your bones
I am in every step you take
I am underneath

I am the inner voice, the one you fear
I am the staring eyes when you’ve done wrong
I will tell you how to be like me
I won’t ask what you want

I am this house, I am the food on your plate
You’ve only ever known my walls
You couldn’t do it yourself, you couldn’t do it yourself
I’ll have to step in again

I am under your skin
I am in your bones
I am in every step you take
I am underneath
Track Name: Sheep
Bad people, cool people
Bad motherfuckers can't heard the sheep
Step in the beat
Wait in line, single file, ignorant smile
Till they chop you up, chop you up
Keep your chin up, man
They're gonna chop you down
Put the little pieces in a tin can, serve it up
Dog food in the news
Fat cat's gotta eat
Little people cryin out "give us a hero"

You gotta vote for the man
With your throat in your hand
Put the blame on them because they got the money
And the right to put you where you fit
So far underneath that you don't even have an
Impact on yourself
No gateway outta hell, man
You ain't got the time the games
Track Name: Head Down
Skyline is turning white
It's cold out but colder inside
So inhale the smoke
And pretend you're having someone else's night

Your bed is stiff, your pillow's a rock
You want to relax and fall apart
But you're drifting, drifting, drifting to sleep
The surface is shifting as you sink underneath

Keep your head down
Wait out the storm in your head
Drown or breathe underwater
Keep your head down for me

Patience is what you need
You pick at the wound so you bleed
Temperature drop as you turn back the clock
And somebody smoked all your weed

Everything's wrong but the words from a song
You'd heard as a kid are bouncing around in your head
Echoes of happiness haunting you still
You're scared to move on but you know that you will

Keep your head down
Wait out the storm in your head
Drown or breathe underwater
Keep your head down for me
Track Name: Easy Come Down
Climb up, climb up, easy come down
Crazy fast killer flash pulls you back to earth
Believe, believe it now, the ghost is howling in the back of your head
Just shiver now and bring it on, bring it on

Too scared to listen to your own conversation
Too many faces at once
Too high to believe your satisfaction
You know you can’t take it

Smash your face in the ground, don’t care anymore
Heavy eyes can drip into the back of your mind
Realize the shadow arms are still wrapped around your neck
This has all been in vain
