Track Name: Greasybot
I emptied my lungs
Into the void
It replied with disdain
Not appalled but annoyed

It said you take your chances
You've squandered them all
Hard to swing for the fences
When you're missing the ball

I know this shit's all just in my head
Doesn't make it easy to forget
Battling depression and dismay
Trying to keep the lunacy at bay

I am winning the fight
But I'm losing the war
Track Name: Dorsal Fin
What is it that makes a man
Compassion or a five year plan?
The amount of notches in your belt
Or how you get by with the hand your dealt?

I know the world takes it's toll
I'm not giving in, I'm not letting go
And though the world takes it's toll
I'm not giving in, I'm not letting go

How do you measure success
By the dollars in your pocket
Or the dirt in your treads?
You friends and family, metal health?
Or the feeling that accompanies power, status and wealth?

I know the world takes it's toll
I'm not giving in, I'm not letting go
And though the world takes it's toll
I'm not giving in, I'm not letting go

I'm done apologizing
For the person I've become
I live this life for me
Free from expectations

I know the world takes it's toll
I'm not giving in, I'm not letting go
And though the world takes it's toll
I'm not giving in, I'm not letting go
Track Name: Millennial Falcon
Stand behind the tallest mental midget
With the loudest megaphone
Board that rocket to annihilation
Eager to watch it explode

Let's divide into ordered lines
As we watch the ship capsize
You know damn well it doesn't make you blind
Just 'cause you shut your fucking eyes

I'll stand staunchly here in opposition
Be the thorn stuck in your side
I'm still guilty by my own admission
I continue to try

Let's divide into ordered lines
As we watch the ship capsize
You know damn well it doesn't make you blind
Just 'cause you shut your fucking eyes
Ride that pony 'til it chokes
Find another when it dies
Your headed south unless you shut your mouth
And open up your fucking mind
Track Name: Griefer Madness
This thirst quenched only by blood
Hope it makes you sick when the first drop hits your tongue
We speak of vengeance as if it's justice
When the dust settles will you realize what you've done

Grief ain't finite, there's enough to go around
And the way that we're all headed
There's no fear of running out
Grief ain't finite, it's a sea in which we'll drown
And the way that we're all headed
There's no fear of running out

A vicious cycle we perpetuate
The willing tinder to the fires of hate
And so I'll run so fucking far away
Hope the maniacs can not keep up with me

Grief ain't finite, there's enough to go around
And the way that we're all headed
There's no fear of running out
Grief ain't finite, it's a sea in which we'll drown
And the way that we're all headed
There's no fear of running out

I know it's easier to lash out in anger than understanding
But if we never tried then the divide will only keep expanding
On and on there's something wrong, we gotta break this chain
Or epitaphs and artifacts are all that will remain

Grief ain't finite, there's enough to go around
And the way that we're all headed
There's no fear of running out
Grief ain't finite, it's a sea in which we'll drown
And the way that we're all headed
There's no fear of running out
Track Name: Out There
Swimming in uncharted seas trying to keep afloat
It's hard to catch your breath with a ghost around
I've been staying up lately in search of common ground
I'm starting to think there's none to be found

Scrape your souls against each other
Generate a spark
Carve yourself a tunnel through the dark

Is anybody out there?
Is anybody listening?
Picking up the signal
We've been transmitting?
Are your hopes and fears
Falling on deaf ears?
Is anybody out there?

All these thoughts are piling up; a stormfront in my head
Digging for deeper words to repeat what I just said
And all these little strings that keep me tethered to the ground
I'm starting to think there's none to be found

Scrape your souls against each other
Generate a spark
Carve yourself a tunnel through the dark

Is anybody out there?
Is anybody listening?
Picking up the signal
We've been transmitting?
Are your hopes and fears
Falling on deaf ears?
Is anybody out there?

Is anybody out there?
Is anybody listening?

Is anybody out there?
Is anybody listening?
Picking up the signal
We've been transmitting?
Are your hopes and fears
Falling on deaf ears?
Is anybody out there?
