Track Name: Sunset
I’ve lost my head. I’m hanging by a thread. Could it be everything you do? Have you heard anything I’ve said? I’ve lost my head. I’m through with you. I’ve lost my head!
Just for one moment, could you take the time to hear me out? I am a person of my own. So far, my life’s been so bent around the ones I care about. But in the end, we’re all alone.
You see, I’ve got some things I’ve been trying to hide. Call it courtesy or cowardice, I can’t decide. I’m still choking on these problems I can never reverse, still beating myself up because it’s all getting worse.
I know you can’t hear me when I’m trying to say, “I know you can’t hear me,” but I’ll scream anyway. And if someday down the line you realize what you heard, then the hollow spot inside me might be worth every word.
I am a disappointment. I am afraid I’m different. If you don’t already know this, you don’t know me that well.
I’ve got my share of secrets. I’ve got a mouthful of my regrets, and if there’s one thing that I miss, it’s someone I could tell.
I’ve lost my head. I’m hanging by a thread. Could it be everything you do? Have you heard anything I’ve said?
I’ll never let this part of me forget. We watched the sun arise, but now it’s time to watch it set.
No, I don’t think I’ll need it. You might as well just keep it. No, I don’t care where you leave it. It’s not mine anymore.
What’s it matter where my heart is? I’m just a boy that lost his soul.
Yeah, I’m far from whole.
I guess this is why I’m such an outcast. But why must I hide the person inside? Don’t tell me to change ‘cause believe me, I’ve tried, and watched myself become more downcast as time passed.
So just for one moment, could you take the time to hear me out? I am a person of my own. So far, my life’s been so bent around the ones I care about. But in the end, we’re all alone.
We’re all alone. ALL ALONE!
I’ve tried to be perfect. I’ve fallen, I’ve fought, and I’ve failed. But what the hell did you expect? I’m really sorry my very being prevailed. And I can’t live with myself anymore. I can’t stand me, and neither can you! And though it’s finally too much to ignore, it’s still the hardest thing I’ve ever had to do.
Leave it all behind, leave it all behind.
Leave it all behind, leave it all behind. Life’s too short to mourn the stages. Leave it all behind, leave it all behind.
Life’s too long to live in cages. Leave it all behind, leave it all. LEAVE IT ALL! Leave it all.
Track Name: Snake
You’re so fake, and I can’t take your shit any longer. You’re such a snake. You’re so fake that you can make a man into a monster. You’re such a snake.
Riots epidemically rampant. Riots epidemically rampant. Leaving all that was stagnant. Epidemically rampant. Epidemically rampant. Epidemically rampant. Epidemically rampant.
My God, Governance, how long till you regain control?
How long till you gain control again? My God, the Arcane, I’m torn within.
No one could tell me why my independence shouldn’t start with “I.” I don’t need some puppet master, so I’m cutting off my strings. Yeah, I’ve had the lower hand on things, and I’m ready, I’m so ready, to have a hand in this COMMOTION!
Here’s to chaos and clamor’s thunder. Remember my face. The bitter eyes you’ll never erase. I am fury forcing you under.
Riots epidemically rampant. Riots epidemically rampant. Leaving all that was stagnant. Epidemically rampant. Epidemically rampant. Epidemically rampant. Epidemically rampant.
Well I’ve taken a look at myself accumulating dust on the shelf. It’s been awhile. It’s been so long, but now I’m finally back. You gave me nothing left to forfeit, always giving into more and more shit. Come and get your veil of spit. I WON’T SUBMIT. No more, no more, no more shit. I’LL NEVER SUBMIT!
Here’s to chaos. Here’s to clamor. Here’s to chaos. Here’s to clamor. Chaos. Clamor. Chaos. Clamor.
You are such a snake.
Track Name: Front Page
I’m coming out of the cage! I made the front page in the arms of rage. Resolution: revolution. Revolution.
You make me lose it. You’re all the same. You have the power now, and we’re all to blame. Let’s go! I’m sick of wasting my precious time, tracing back the years lost in my prime. All I gave is all mine now. The TIME is PRIME! Let’s GO!
Hard times, getting harder. Hard lives and broken dreams. All those above me, hear my screams!
Hard times. Hard lives. Broken dreams. Hear my screams!
I’ve lived in fear. Why am I still here? I lost the answer years ago. Am I the only one that feels so hopeless? Am I still screaming at the walls? It’s times like these I just embrace the madness ‘cause there’s only one thing I wanna do:
FUCK SHIT UP!
Calling all martyrs! You fire starters! Calling all martyrs! What’s left to lose? I’ve got the match. You’ve got the fuse.
We’re coming out of the cage! We made the front page in the arms of rage. Resolution: revolution. We’re coming out of the cage! Bring in the new age ‘cause we’re full of this rage. Resolution: revolution. Revolution.
You said you offered a better way. You said we’d see a better day. Oh yeah!
We’ve got your answer. We’ve got your change right here. THE BIG FUCKING CHANGE. THE CHANGE.

You make me lose it. You’re all the same. You have the power now, and we’re all to blame. Let’s go! I’m sick of wasting my precious time, tracing back the years lost in my prime. All I gave is mine now. The TIME is PRIME! Let’s GO!
Hard times, getting harder. Hard lives and broken dreams. All those above me, hear my screams!
Hard times. Hard lives. Broken dreams. Hear my screams!
Track Name: Bring in the Hogs
Feeling the fear that we’ve felt for so long, shaking apart in subversion’s song. Knew all along that the method was wrong, but at least it was working for you.
Now what’s a falling icon to do?
Another pawn in your pitiful program, another pawn with a pitiful fate, parading on in a horrible scam ‘cause your Savior is gone and Messiah’s too late.
So sad to see that he’s not here today, but if he was, I bet he’d just crack a smile and say:
“BRING IN THE HOGS!”
Feeling the fear that you’ve dealt for so long, shaking apart, but you’re oh-so-strong. Knew all along that the method was wrong, but there’s always a time and a place.
It’s nice to see you’re still saving face.
I can’t believe that I gave you my trust. I can’t believe ANYTHING! You can’t deceive what is finally just, fostering the fire under anarchy’s wing.
So just sit back and get high on the view. I know you love to watch as they fight the battles for you:
BRING IN THE HOGS!
Feeling the fear that we’ve felt for so long; this is subversion’s song. You knew all along: the method was wrong. Feeling the fear you’ve dealt for so long, shaking apart: subversion’s song. You knew all along, didn’t you? Didn’t you?
FACE THE FEAR!
