Track Name: Entities
Silent tickles for blood to trickle,
you lost yourself now many years ago.
Just one body but two occupying,
My head reserved for more than just my own.
So soon now comes the day when the man in the back of my brain screams, you're not allowed to breathe.
I'm not one to intimidate, I stay silent until the release date.
Hey, my name is Dave.

Entities

The sight of her inspires nervous rage that fills the gaps she dug for you.
All this time to think she's the one who's turned this world to shit for me and you.
So soon now comes the day when the man in the back of my brain screams, you're not allowed to breathe.
I'm not one to intimidate, I stay silent until the release date.
Hey, my name is Dave.

You took it all away from me. Everything I need to breathe. So ride the tide, your victory is nigh, now I need chains to see.
I never meant to be obscene. It's just the way it had to be. So pace your steps and keep the sheep in check I'm living out a lions dream. Right?

Restless. Oh god grant me lobotomy before this face falls.
I'm lonely each passing minute I can't stand to hardly hang on.
Losing control of all you care about and fading duly.
Hiding from a world that never wanted you and dying slowly.

Nobody loves you.

Static aching my hands are shaking we're fighting off the shadowmans request.
Resort to market fumes. Anything to subdue the truth, his strength will grow along with my absence.
So soon now comes the day when the man in the back of my brain screams, you're not allowed to breathe.
I'm not one to intimidate, I stay silent until the release date.
Hey, my name is Dave.

Entities.
Track Name: Don't Do It
sick to death of this cursed life
In my head I kill myself every night
I wanna suck on a tail pipe or hang by a noose
Im hanging on by a thread and its slowly cutting loose

Slowly cutting loose
Yeah

No escaping these invasive thoughts
"Just fucking do it" recurrs in my thoughts
Maybe itll be worth it, or maybe its not
So much fighting within voices egging me on

Voices egg me on

Just fucking end it, youre worthless
Your existence has no fucking purpose
Set yourself free from the mental torture
Lust for death backed yourself into a corner

Dont do it x6
Track Name: Jett Fuel
I'm entrenched in a thick and unenjoyable haze. I'm either too high to talk or living miserable days. Ferryman, won't you row me to brighter shores?

It's all wrong.

I can no longer express how much I hate my existence, everyday is a test of my heart and my patience. I'm fucking rotting. Do you know what it's like?
Someone give me a gun or any bottle of pills. I will no longer allow the sickness to keep me ill. Hallelujah. We're mortal men.

It's all wrong.

I see us as insects on a fragile anthill.
What's that make me as an individual?
Do tell, am I a defector or just another narcissist?
I genuinely can't tell.
Revolution, revolution. Empty faces scream out for the revolution.
Determination procreation, the disgusting persistence of evolution.
One day I'll kill everyone.

It's all wrong.
Track Name: Never Doubt
Sit and call me pathetic
What the fucks it to you?
Cram your agenda down my throat
But whats your point to prove?
You can call me am addict
You can belittle me too
But I wont give you the light of day
For your bigoted "truth"

Judgemental thoughts
Spew out your mouth
What you were taught
You'll never doubt x2

Didnt ask your opinion on the things that I do.
Don't agree with how I live?
Well whoopdee-fucking-doo
You can call me an addict
You can belittle me too
But I wont give you the light of day
For your bigoted "truth"

Judgemental thoughts
Spew out your mouth
What you were taught
You'll never doubt

Never doubt
Track Name: The Grind
Born to be a slave your whole fucking life
When evidence is presented
You wont change your mind
A nation robbed of conciousness enacts complacency
Theyve took you all for what you've got in this society

Close your eyes, stay asleep x2

Why cant you fucking see
Blindfolded by the flag is not being free
Never willing to take a step to put up a fight until theres nothing left
We see through all your fucking lies
Red white and blue deceptive eyes
Marching us to our demise
Earths dying and its no surprise
Track Name: Betrayed
Thanks for the lesson. I'll keep your acts in mind. These pedestals can blind.
And when the day is done and you are sat and laughing from the lies now in my eyes.

Fuck you. You mean nothing you say.
I have to mention the way you up it all on me.

On better days a can say that I don't really care today just ain't so fair.
Your lies deceits and cheats are running rancid inside my skull. Just let me get some air.

Fuck you. You mean nothing you say.
I have to mention the way you up it all on me.

Now I know this is not the place and it was never really the time.
Sad to see you go. Person I thought I knew. Now your dead to me.

Now just a passerby at local gas stations I can't help but wonder why.
What we could be, what we should be. If I don't get the chance in time...

Fuck you.
Track Name: Security
Playing hooky during school
We dont follow bullshit rules
We just wanna have some fun
Better watch out or we're done
Im gonna roam the halls again
Ditching class with my friends
Fuck your power, fuck your carts
Censorship oppressing art

Security
Let me be
Security
We're not free

I fall asleep during class
Now the teacher is on my my ass
Class is such a fucking bore
So Ill walk right out the door
Gonna roam the halls again
Ditching class with my friends
Fuck your power, fuck your carts
Censorship oppressing art

Chorus

Take me to the office, put me on fucking trial
Theyll interogate me, keep me on fucking file
"Appearance doesnt matter as long as youre according,
We saw what you did, the cameras were recording"
Piggies at the mall, piggies at beach
Piggies everywhere the eye can fucking see
With you theres no justice, with you theres no peace
Say it with me now, fuck the police!

Fuck the police

Security
Let me be
Security
We're not free x2
Track Name: Leafy Greens
(Marceliano)

Time takes the words right off of my tongue.
The moon is all I need and this nights so young.

So good to be, so good to be home.
So good to be, good to be, good to be home.

A little clarity, a little sense of self to find.
Well I've been searching but nothing ever comes to mind.

So good to be, so good to be home.
So good to be, good to be, good to be home.

(Jett)

I used to be cool
But now Im a slag
My mom bitches at me
My lifes a drag

The leafy greens
They changed me

Whenever I have problems
Please dont bother me
Just leave me with my bag of
Dank ass sour D

The leafy greens
They changed me
Track Name: Mademoiselle
You better make a choice I'm coming out to voice a discontented side with the enslavement by your eye.
On the on the other hand, I'd never say no to you.
I'll be another boy, I'll happily be your toy, if you just play with me. Another whispered sweet nothing.
I'm on demand with no one lining up to use

Say I do and burn all the men in the pews cause they're all wishing it could've been you. Say I do fear god.
Say I do and give them a devilish look. Shakespearean caliber hook. Say I do desire death.
Someone fucking end this rat race.

Cherish the handicap. I love the way I crack. The way the soreness sways. Afflictions can be remedies.
As you can tell the best of bait is bitter sweet.
Go on a walk with me. You can have my heart to see if you would hold my hand as I am losing consciousness.
Mademoiselle, you're a liar, rotten, darling thing.

Say I do and burn all the men in the pews cause they're all wishing it could've been you. Say I do fear god.
Say I do and give them a devilish look. Shakespearean caliber hook. Say I do desire death.
Someone fucking end this rat race.

I can try just as hard as I want things just never work out quite the way that I wanted them to. Oh fucking well.

Say I do and burn all the men in the pews cause they're all wishing it could've been you. Say I do fear god.
Say I do and give them a devilish look. Shakespearean caliber hook. Say I do desire death.
Someone fucking end this rat race.
Track Name: Anxiety
I never really cared too much about perfection
But when I see myself I spit at my reflection
Always saying never, didnt turn out right
Depression takes me over and Im staying up all night
Its like Im in a padded cell with nothing left to do
Non ecstatic psychiatrics offer nothing new
Life just seems to be the process of rotting away
Pain and sorrow eating at me, living day by day

Anxiety is like a bullet in my head
Anxiety makes me wish that I was dead
Anxiety Please just take it all away
Anxiety

I never really cared too much or paid attention
About the things you say that inflict my regression
To an introverted way to go about life
Afraid of being the one who is stirring up a strife
Never feeling good enough for anything I do
What everybody really thinks, I'll never have a clue
Integrity and honesty, a rarity these days
Im a loser but at least I mean what I say

Chorus
Track Name: Tire Me Out
To try and make the most of this ride is to say it did anything other than tire, other than tire me out. Tire me right out. Keep your distance. I have no trust to give.

Lock this helpless man in the freezer, for he truly believes in love. He really believes it's not a ruse. Believes you love him too. I call bullshit. We see what we wish the world could be. Bury our mistakes in hopes they'll run out of air.

I can't really say I have any strong sense of community. I don't wanna be a part of any bigger picture.
I hate my species. I hate my species. But I know I'm no better than them.
How could I be? I'm surrounded on all sides.

Another dumb dog out chasing cars.
In the chaos, he confuses headlights for stars.
Track Name: On Parade
The air is crisp and cool tonight. The trees are reaching to the sky with shooting stars on parade so far.
Slow the steps and concentrate. You can hear heartbeats beneath the concrete street. This earth she breathes.

Now the birds sing songs of defeat. Mother natures on her knees pleads for reprieve, she'll have no mercy.
With every man made brick in the mud I hope that we all wither and rot into the dirt, just what we deserve.

Let the sand seep into your mind. Let the life source white out your eyes and fly so high.
Inhale exhale and send your troubles to the surface of the sun to die my child.

So sick of day to day life I escape from my own mind tonight and pray it'll solve itself.
Snagged, bagged, tagged, held to a knife and told to walk in an orderly line. I cry for what's outside.
World outside.
