Track Name: They Came At Night
Lie awake/
Fear can't shake/
Ah, they came at night/
Pray for morning light/
Eyes on me/
Bound, I see/
Ah, they came at night/
Pray for morning light
Track Name: UFO
Gentlemen, we are gathered here today/
To discuss what you think you might have seen/
Those flashing lights so far away/
The feeling nothing's as it seems/
Something in my skin/
I can't get it out/
See them in my dreams/
I feel like I just can't live without/
Tell me who you are/
What it means to me/
Tell me what it is, we were not supposed to see/
Tell me what they've done, what they did to me/
Tell me what it is, and why won't you set me free/
Thank you for your full cooperation/
At this time your request can not be met/
We have launched a full investigation/
Under orders from your government/
I don't trust a word/
Anything you say/
Something in the sky/
Picked me up and took me far away
Track Name: Codebreaker
Thirteenth step, hand-in-hand
Descending into unknown land/
We gave it away, nobody has to know
Gave it away, it only cost our soul/
Sign your name right here today/
Go and give it away/
We ain't got much left to take/
Go and give it away/
Sign your name right here today/
Go and give it away, it don't last for long/
Profiteer in a house of guilded gold
The greatest lie's the one that's never told/
We gave it away, nobody has to know
What do you say, it only cost your soul/
Thirteenth step, hand-in hand
Descending into unknown land/
We gave it away, nobody has to know
What do you say, it only cost you soul
Track Name: Means To An End
I need to find escape/
In another mind.
These times are too severe/
I can’t unwind.
What’s the solution?
Impassioned words I hear/
Motivate my hate.
You speak right to my fears/
I do relate.
I want to know you/
I want to trust you.
Are we forever bound/
Am I just a clown?
Is this the ending now/
Can I stick around?
If I get too high/
Do you cut me down to size?
Are you my new best friend/
Am I just a means to an end?
I think I lost my way/
Spun out of control.
Gaslighting everything/
You broke my soul.
I thought I knew you.
Ten thousand ugly lies/
Took over my head.
But you diffused my pain/
How to defend?
I thought I knew you/
Still want to trust you.
Please God/
Help me.
Track Name: Kessel Run
Think of all the times you never left me far behind, I kept a tally in my mind for all these years/
Now we meet again and baby how've you been? I missed a lot while you were gone, but now I'm finally here/
Let's make our way to higher ground and look around for something new/
Take the new day, embrace the sound of what we found and change our tune/
Make a new impression in the sand until it's swept away again, and we are pulled in by the waves/
I looked at you and said we've got it where it counts, kid don't you know we won't get there by playing safe?/
Track Name: Dead Beat
Another day on repeat/
Soaking in to his bed in relief.
She’s out alone/
To build a better life and home; ain’t easy.
He blinks again/
Nothing good comes or goes in his head.
She’s out alone/
Will she ever let him go; does she see?
You’re in love with a deadbeat/
Try to end it on the phone but he’s asleep.
You’re in love with a deadbeat/
Think you might let him go but he won’t leave.
Another day on repeat/
Stoned to the bone again; he’s feeling.
She’s had enough/
Dragging him around all day, she’s leaving.
He blinks again/
Nothing good comes or goes in his head.
She’s had enough/
Will she finally let him go; does she see?
Track Name: Fork And Spoon
For forty days and forty nights, I waited for you/
With just enough substance to make it through/
It's hard to see when the lights go dark/
There's nowhere for your brain to park/
What's gotten into you?/
Don't let me out, I might slide away/
The night is filled with danger, but we can't survive the day/
Forked tongue, Fork knife, A fork and spoon/
You'll know my evil presence soon/
It only takes a tiny bite/
You say you won't but you just might/
What's gotten into you?/
