Track Name: Chemicals
Soaking in these chemicals
Just cannot get dry
Why are all the poison ones
All that I can find?
Some days
I wish you'd vacate my mind
Others I kid myself that I'll
Be just fine

I told myself I'd treat you
Like air in my lungs
Precious for seconds
Not missed when it's gone
But I was so scared
To let it in
Like it my poison
Me again
And then it did

Soaking in these chemicals
Just cannot get dry
Why are all the poison ones
All that I can find?
Some days
I wish you'd vacate my mind
Others I kid myself that I'll
Be just fine

And now I wear this smile
It's two way glass
Dying on
The other side of it
Call me a kleptomaniac
I took a piece of you
I'm never giving back
It's all I've got left

Soaking in these chemicals
Just cannot get dry
Why are all the poison ones
All that I can find?
Some days
I wish you'd vacate my mind
Others I kid myself that I'll
Be just fine

SOAKING IN CHEMICALS
JUST CAN'T GET DRY
WHY ARE THE GOOD ONES
SO HARD TO FIND?
SOME DAYS I WISH YOU'D JUST VACATE MY MIND
OTHERS I KID MYSELF I'M GONNA BE JUST FINE
Track Name: Quake
An alien
Isolation
A foreigner in my own skin
A heart attack
Upon contact
With any hungry eye that tries to eat me through it's gaze

With every breath and every step I take
It's like I'm waitin for the ground to break
Feeling like I'm gonna suffocate
Every time I give my hand to shake

We interact
Through screens and glass
I can't help feeling so detached
From everyone
I've come to love
They're basking in the sun while I keep sleeping in this shade

With every breath and every step I take
It's like I'm waitin for the ground to break
Feeling like I'm gonna suffocate
Every time I give my hand to shake
It's at the point where I can't trust anyone
(I can't trust anyone) And all my friends are gone
It's at the point where I can't trust anyone
(I can't trust anyone) And everything's long gone


With every breath and every step I take
It's like I'm waitin for the ground to break
Feeling like I'm gonna suffocate
Every time I give my hand to shake
It's at the point where I can't trust anyone
(I can't trust anyone) And all my friends are gone
It's at the point where I can't trust anyone
(I can't trust anyone) And everything's long gone
Track Name: Victims of Life
Blinded at birth
Taught that you would inherit the Earth
Sad as it seems
You might have to abandon those dreams
Begin to accept that's as good as it gets
Get a real job
Earn your degree
Find hapiness
In martimony

Aren't we all victims of life?
And don't we all watch it passing us by?
How do we know if we're doing this right?
Doesn't it keep you awake at night?

Shoot for the stars
In the end all you'll end up is charred
Reach for the sky
Keep your arms in the air til ya die
This is the point where there's no turning back
Quit that shit job
Burn your degree
Get a divorce
Live happily

Aren't we all victims of life?
And don't we all watch it passing us by?
How do we know if we're doing this right?
Doesn't it keep you awake at night?

Some people get it all dropped in their lap
Others scrape by as they're breaking their backs
Life isn't fair, you should know that by now
You're on your own, gotta figure it out

Aren't we all victims of life?
And don't we all watch it passing us by?
How do we know if we're doing this right?
Doesn't it keep you awake at night?
