INTO THIS MACHINE I’ll throw my body Into this machine Let every crushing sound Bring with it a change
2.
THE FEAR KEEPS ME ANYWHERE BUT HERE I told my mother not to worry about me Somehow I knew I’d be fine But there’s always that little voice That reminds you when you tell a lie What do you do when you’re the seed That makes a family tree grow rotten You’re that little reminder That say, “You fucking lied to me.” So many roots undone But not in one fell swoop Would you trade your life for so many someone else’s It becomes clear that this fear Keeps me anywhere but here What do you do when you’re the seed That makes a family tree grow rotten You’re that little reminder that says, “You lied to me.” So may roots undone Not in one fell swoop, but so much time If I’m broken at home Can I fix me on the road?

GEARS I’d gladly feast on those who subdue me If only to return the favor Of a life long struggle we’re bred into Like any man brought to the edge would do Forbidden to speak I’ll open my mouth Forbidden to think I WILL SPEAK OUT Told never to run I won’t tread lightly I’ll never look up at you Not allowed to see I won’t be blind Told what to eat I’ll never believe Made to order and thrown on the pile This won’t be the last of me Just like an engine needs fuel They need a people made to serve Sold water and air as a catalyst to combine with fear and make the world turn Spinning around but for a few While we traverse the path laid out Combusting all the while This machine moves on Don’t fool yourself into thinking You exist outside this box Your forward thinking is the drug They use to satiate All the while the gears turn Building friction But I’m not afraid to do what it takes To stop the bleeding, look to yourself One well placed wrench to end it all I’ll throw my body into this machine Let every crushing sound bring with it a change I’ll throw my heart into everything they stole from me I’ll find a weakness; a way to make this machine bleed All they taught us – it never meant anything All we thought we knew – we’ll unlearn and find the truth All they made us fear – we’ll take back and call our own All those gears we turned – we’ll break free and burn them down

THE LONG GOODBYE We left before the sun had a chance To hit the ground as we walked in silence We never said goodbye Or gave you the chance To tell me you loved me If I said I wasn’t coming back I hate to say you wouldn’t know the difference Now left all alone with no one to blame JUST HANG YOUR HEAD AND CRY It took distance To make this heart finally grow fond of something Maybe it takes losing it all to know just what I got We left before the moon came out On another starless night We never said goodbye so it wouldn’t hurt to see me Just walk on by My worst nightmare came true with my wildest dreams Now this is killing me We left before we said goodbye So it won’t hurt When you walk by
5.
CHECK’S IN THE MAIL Not a moment of weakness or a cry for help Still another life gets set on the shelf I hate to be the one to say this It’s too late for you Not a random fate It didn't happen by chance I know you did your best To not consider that And now it’s here but you’re not ready To change your life But it’s too late How could you be so selfish? How could you do this to me? Why would you carry on? Again and again… Not an act of kindness or a sign from above Such a lack of respect Is this what you call love? All the while we plod along Waiting to receive our dividends CHORUS – I haven’t lost my humanity But inhumanity prevails Because a pound of flesh just isn’t enough I’m not just fucking angry – I’m scared How can I show compassion for those who won’t be bothered? To be considerate and just it die I’m not just fucking angry – I’m scared This world has so much beauty Being trampled out We act so entitled To consume everything With a selfish heart That can never look back We’re seven billion weak And we’re going strong I hate to be the one to say It’s too late for you It’s too late for us all But it’s too late to change IT’S TOO LATE TO CHANGE CHORUS But I won’t be brought down Now It’s too late to change Now
6.
WITH OR WITHOUT ME I was never supposed to end up here This was never ever supposed to be That doesn’t mean it’s wrong But knowing me it will never come to be I won’t apologize for feeling the way I do But sure enough I won’t have to I’ll just wear this burden As a reminder of who I’m not These walls felt different When I was just a kid The feeling’s there but the heart is not Something changed but it wasn’t me You don’t see me You don’t hear me I can’t stand pretending Maybe it’s easier for us both If I would just stop trying I’m so fucking lost I’m so fucking ashamed If I’m so fucking different Why the fuck did you choose me? I don’t belong with you I don’t even belong with me I was fucking lost Until I found this place I thought we’d never change But you moved on without me If I’m the pariah You’re the constant reminder I’ll wear this burden Of who I’ll never be What ever happened to the day we’d never trade away? I thought you were someone who could never turn their back and run Now I look on as you move miles ahead of me And from the distance I say, “You’re my constant reminder.”

11-20-11 Another day wishing I wasn't at home Another day for me to be alone I’m not sure I have what it takes To hold my head up high and be The man I want to be I can’t stand looking at the unknown I’ll tear every mirror down from my wall I can’t run away from life forever I gotta slow down and settle down somewhere At what age do I have to grow up? And who really knows just what that means? I won’t spend my life another pretender CHORUS A sad old man And all he thinks he’ll never see It’s too late (too late) to change who he is Another day wishing I’m somewhere else Another day to change everything Not just a day for me to consume But embrace this world and all it has to show There’s a better way to see this place Another day to try it again We have a chance to finally wake up I won’t spend my life Just another pretender CHORUS A little boy And all he thinks he’s got to be It’s too late (too late) for me to change Who I am One man’s trash is another man’s treasure I’ll make my fortune with these people around me I never asked for a sense of security But all these trouble just circle And drown me As I wake in a cold sweat Trying to see if this was all just a dream I wouldn’t believe myself If I ever told me I ask my father what it takes to really be a man He lets a smile escape as he shakes his head He looks me in the eye and says, “Son, Finding out is half the fun.” I know this is where I’m meant to be I won’t question what it takes to go on It doesn't mean it’s going to be easy But today is the best day I’ve ever gotten to see

LONE SHARK Don’t pretend for a minute I don’t lost any sleep Thinking of what could be All of my shortcomings, always dreaming When will it be me? When you know who you are And just stop giving a fuck It’s never too late to make a clean slate Take those memories like bricks And smash right through the glass The kind of contempt in you That comes from familiarity Apathy and complacency is bred by your shitty perspective I lived long enough to know That I don’t know enough The hardest lessons learned Are the ones they want to go untold They shoot – the live – they sell – they win We try to build a better life… Money is their language And we followed the sounds of their screams Like bringing a gun to a class war We don’t know what all this means I’ve learned a thing about sacrifice And I’ve learned a thing about vice I’m got a bone to pick with their axe to grind It goes something life this The idiosyncrasy and differences deep inside ourselves We took their brick and made our own hell Now who will bake this bread? I’ve learned a thing about sacrifice And I’ve learned a thing about vice I’ve got a bone to pick with their axe to grind It goes something like this We took their bricks and we made our own hell The kind of contempt in you that comes from familiarity Your apathy and complacency is bred by your shitty perspective I’ve lived long enough to know that I don’t know enough The hardest lessons learned are the ones they want to go Untold This is not me This is not my life

Wit's End The winding road has split in two The pretty scenery turned into dust All the beauty of steel Just a memory All these buildings turned into rust I reached the end of my map Found nothing of my own So I just turned back Nowhere to call my home I can't decide what's worse Being afraid to fail Or just cutting my losses Save everyone the grief I'll save myself the heartache of another attempt Just a bitter complaint and I'll be out of your way I won't have these dreams at the cost of your pity So I'll run away We'll just blame it on pride Such a likely excuse What more did you expect? I expect to lose Its just something I'm used to Tell me what if I said "I'll never leave again" Now tell me what if I said "I'll stay close just for you" So when I turn my back You won't see my face Just a consequence of letting myself down I'm finally learning to cope with what it really means To give my heart to someone Not just keep it for me This is how I want to be remembered I wouldn't ever change a thing You see there's something about being proud and determined The only thing that's great about me I know you always said there was so much more You always had a way with words But it's too late to change I won't try anyway Let's just pretend that we're better off I won't venture what it's not worth to gain I guess the juice wasn't worth the squeeze All alone So afraid Looking back it was the fear Of failing that scares me the most Sometimes I scare myself with all I can't help but think Going down that road I bring myself to the brink I see the smile on your face Just before the crash As the glass breaks through I think of what's to come So at my eulogy Tell my mother not to cry Her son lived a good life Died how he wanted to die With a lifetime of pictures That I wished I had saved Let this be the last photo that you see of me A failure A triumph A gasp and a scream This was everything that I needed it to be as I look back down on that winding road I won't wonder if I went the wrong way I came home after living a dream Everything wasn't quite as it seemed I was brought back to life From the end of my rope In spite of everything I'd rather fail than hope

NOTHING TO BELIEVE In my darkest days I must confess Pretending there was hope to change this As we travel on is disarray My darkest fears are confirmed In brighter days Before our time I believe we were more than this As we travel on in constant decay I know this will never be the same Is this the end? Of everything we ever loved I’m afraid when it’s said and done All of us will say, “We were never apart of this,” I wake up again I breathe in warm air I can’t believe what surrounds me All I see is hate and filth I can’t believe I helped making this surroundings Is this then end? Of everything we ever loved I know when it’s said and done All of us will say We were never apart of this Nothing is sacred Nothing is pure There’s nothing to fear, no pain to endure I’ll believe in anything, just to say I have faith in something Nothing is ventured Nothing is gained There’s no reason to question what can’t be explained I’ll believe in anything just to say I have faith in something And we’ll fall forever I don’t wanna die I just wanna get wasted When you say that we’re ok – I can’t believe in this fate THERE’S NOTHING LEFT TO SAVE US Do you ever look back On the things that you’ve done? Can you honestly say you never heart anyone? I can honestly say I was not apart of this When the world looks back on us Who will say they remember us? Will they know us, will they hear us, do they even care? I think it’s safe to say there’s nothing left to save us
