Track Name: 71
Breathe in as the film begins
Aware of the back lights dimming
Why so serious?
The plan will unfold verbatim to the scene
Your punishment must be more severe

Rise, rise and you shall fall
Run you hopeless 71 victims
Rise, rise and you shall fall
Run you hopeless 71 victims
71

Break down, you’re mine you little freak
Though we must obey our deed and be a hero to them all
Breathe in as our plot thickens
Destroy for the sake of having a good laugh or two

Rise, rise and you shall fall
Run you hopeless 71 victims
Rise, rise and you shall fall
Run you hopeless 71 victims
71

Rise, rise and you shall fall, rise
Rise, rise and you shall fall, rise

Hopeless on their knees you’ll make a joker of them all

Rise, rise and you shall fall
Justice for your 71 victims
Rise, rise and you shall fall
Rest you noble 71 victims
71
Track Name: Sea Of Slumbers
Today’s the day we run away to keep our sanity
Escape from the cold and damp
Where you cannot see your last breath
And as we take in the sea
Cool island breeze
Watch your problems float away, take the time to seize the day
Where you’re free from divine decay

Wake up, Wake up

I’m tired of feeling like I can’t escape
From this windy atrocity
We feel it in our bones
It’s gotta get you kinda angry
Black ice covers the ground
So I walk carefully to work in sorrow

When my mother sat me down she told me that I wasn’t to blame
When your father left us he was wrong
So he left us all alone, as that year became the next
Well I’m glad he’s gone, he was a filthy drunk

Wake up, wake up

So when you go to sleep
Be careful to keep breathing
Mediocrity
When all the best things leave for good

I’m lying next to wonderful friends on a pleasant bed of sand
Not a tense muscle in me
Subtle breeze as I bask in sunlight

I’m tired of feeling like I can’t escape
From this windy atrocity
We feel it in our bones
It’s gotta get you kinda angry
Black ice covers the ground
So I walk carefully to work in sorrow

So when you go to sleep
Be careful to keep breathing
Mediocrity
When all the best things leave
Track Name: For The Cause!
Cover up, from tear gas, face first in a trench
Accompanied by rats spreading diseases

He is there by conscription, though he fought with proscription

Damp and scared in trenches
Bounds of horrible stenches
Jacket caught in barbed wire
Constant gunfire
Send me back to her arms

Captured imprisoned blind in a glass house, time stands still
Canvas of honor stronger than torture, time will tell

Damp and scared in trenches
Bounds of horrible stenches
Jacket caught in barbed wire
Constant gunfire

Damp and scared in trenches
Drunk off war in marshes

When I draw my pistol for the cause, and I fear the white star’s gonna poison me
Casualties in 1915
When I kill a stranger for the cause, but I’m not a murderer I am a patriot
Mustn't tell my family
When I draw my pistol for the cause, and I fear the white star’s gonna poison me
Casualties in 1915
When I kill a stranger for the cause, but I’m not a murderer I am a patriot
Mustn't tell my family

When I draw my pistol for the cause
When I kill a stranger for the cause
When I draw my pistol
Track Name: Resolutions
Woken by a breeze
Seeping through the broken window
Stolen from a dream
Where I was no longer in the cold

Homemade remedies
Desperately torment my one vice
Unbalanced chemically
Pleading one more time will suffice

So you feel left behind?
Lacking peace of mind, person undefined
Keeping up those resolutions (keeping up your resolutions)
And so your body’s trembling
Voice is deafening, eyes are menacing
Keeping up those resolutions (keeping up your resolutions)

We are raised to be addicts
We are raised to be convicts
Hollywood just wants to get us hooked
We are raised to idolize fame
Keeping up our january resolutions

Won’t be leaving home
I’ve yet to shovel all that damn snow
Wanna stay in bed and rot
Hiding from the cold, no one there to hold
Fearing all those resolutions (fearing all my resolutions)
Lack of self control
Seems like this year is gonna be the same
And who the hell am I kidding?
Nobody at all, no one even called
To ask about your resolutions (to ask about your resolutions)

We are raised to be addicts
We are raised to be convicts
Hollywood just wants to get us hooked
We are raised to idolize fame
Keeping up our january resolutions

Itching for a taste
Of wasted habits and drunken crimes
Sober mind defaced
Watching all the memories erase


Stay put on the ground
Cowering from every last blow
Watch your body drown
So much pain from head to toe

Hollywood just wants to get us hooked
We are raised to idolize fame
Keeping up those january resolutions
Keeping up those january resolutions
Track Name: Drank Too Much Wine
What a way to start the year
Passed out on the tile
Don’t even know who’s house I’m in

I drank too much wine
So poisoned I’m blind, dear god
I drank too much wine
So everyone’s crying

Off the walls a scent of beer
With a hint of lime
Horrible stains on shag carpet, reminisce
Feel like a child again
Making a mess
Where are my so called friends?
Laughing while they run away

I drank too much wine
So poisoned I’m blind, dear god
I drank too much wine
So everyone’s crying

Dirty hands, blood run dry
And my knuckles cut
Don’t even know who’s blood it is, what have I done?

I drank too much wine
So poisoned I’m blind, dear god
I drank too much wine
So everyone’s crying
I drank too much wine
I drank too much wine
I drank too much wine
I drank too much wine

Start with a mess
Dirt on my hands
Start with a mess
What have I done?
Track Name: The Nervous Kind
I don’t know what’s outside that door
But I’m terribly nervous
Best stay inside, so I can hide
Feeling trapped and isolated
Save me from my fears, my failures
Agoraphobia is our latest fad
Or being bipolar
It changes each week, dysfunctional freak

Sing me to sleep
Watch my sanity creep
Falling away from my terrible mind
I am just the nervous kind, oh

Hide away from what could get me
So I cower in my safe world
A dash of delusion and worry
I’m terribly crazy
Or am I just lazy?

Sing me to sleep
Watch my sanity creep
Falling away from my terrible mind
I am just the nervous kind

No more time for running, away, away
Am I done pretending to be okay, okay

I don’t know what’s outside that door
But I’m terribly nervous
Stay inside, so I can hide

Sing me to sleep
Watch my sanity creep
Falling away from my terrible mind
I am just the nervous kind

I am the nervous kind
Track Name: Shine And Recover
Sleek and fine yellow ochre coat with several unique black markings, hunting prey
Sharp retractable claws to capture a plentiful amount of victims, lunch today
And we cry that we want to live, so we smother and we strangle to death
Time to sneak on our meat this evening
Calculating and planning and waiting and scanning our attack

Through the frozen grass
We are peeking never sleeping
To survive
It’s our time to shine and recover

Black and orange hiding in the lake, waiting for my dear to drink, time to play
And it cries that it wants to live, well I don’t really give a damn, time to feed

Through the frozen grass
We are peeking never sleeping
To survive
It’s our time to shine and recover

Through the frozen grass
We are creeping always seeking
To survive
Through the frozen grass
We are peeking never sleeping
To survive
It’s our time to shine and recover
Track Name: Five Personalities
Dear god there’s another one dead
Can’t fight all the thoughts in my head
Tick tock that’s the sound of your life
Gone by while I sharpen my knife

Tick tock tick tock tick tock tick tock
Your life is running out
If the wrong man dies then I’m shattered to bits
Your life is running out
Tick tock tick tock
The tub is running bloodWhen I try so hard to keep innocence alive
The tub still runs with blood

And if I follow your code
Oh oh oh oh five personalities
Don’t wanna end up alone
Oh oh oh oh five personalities
I am a monster
I am a killerCan’t change I’m a monster for life
Woah, woah
Let’s feed my addiction tonight
Woah
Tick tock tick tock
He whispered in her earWell the man is a star though he won’t get very far
Could the snow drop take his life

And if I follow your code
Oh oh oh oh five personalities
Don’t wanna end up alone
Oh oh oh oh five personalities
I am a monster
I am a killer

Hands turning numb, he knows exactly what he’s done
Follow your code
Don’t forget your son, he knows exactly what you’ve done
End up alone

Dear god there’s another one dead
Can’t fight all the thoughts in my head
Tick tock that’s the sound of your life
Gone by as I sharpen my knife

And if I follow your code
Oh oh oh oh five personalities
Don’t wanna end up alone
Oh oh oh oh five personalities
I am a monster
I am a killer

Hands turning numb, he knows exactly what he’s done
Follow your code
Don’t forget your son, he knows exactly what you’ve done
End up alone
Track Name: Jealous John
In his smile, he really wants to take her home
But she tells him no
And a smile grow grows, when he sees her woes woe
Let me out of here, Julie cry
And her fear it grow grows, and her heart has froze froze
This’ll teach her, twisted echoes of another man
Jealous John has taken what he wants, a plan he knows

Time we talked on the phone, the phone
Nights we spent all alone, our nights alone
Was it all just a heaping pile of blasphemy?
Or was it all a lie?
I had to put dear Julie’s life in Jeopardy

Deliver it and tie me up in chains
I’ll promise not to scream when I’m in pain
You selfish pig with nothing left to gain
Convince yourself my life will lead to fame

Time we talked on the phone, the phone
Nights we spent all alone, our nights alone
Was it all just a heaping pile of blasphemy?
Or was it all a lie?
I had to put my Julie’s life in Jeopardy

Please set me free
Your life’s in jeopardy
Remove these steel cold rusty chains
I wanna see you pain

Let me go
You chose him
Let me free
Over me
I can’t breathe

Deliver it and tie me up in chains
I’ll promise not to scream when I’m in pain
You selfish pig with nothing left to gain
Convince yourself my life will lead to fame
Track Name: Blind
How does it feel to be in love?
But the catch is you’re alone
Could it be real to share a thought?
When it’s so clear that no one’s
Home
Home
In this life we search to find our own
Soul to smother
And the past I fear we can’t atone
And it seems that

All we want is, all we want is love
But you can’t find it
All we want is, all we want is love
Now it seems as though you’re blind to it

He has your eyes without disguise
They’re the same deep blue as hers
Every time I see his smile
I ask where’s his mother
Hiding from her one and only son
And his lonely father
Made a happy family undone
So father’s crying

All we want is, all we want is love
But you can’t find it
All we want is, all we want is love
Now it seems as though you’re blind to it

Imagine her without you
Please make it stop
Someone touching her hand
Kissing her neck

All we want is, all we want is love

All we want is, all we want is love
But you can’t find it
All we want is, all we want is love
Now it seems as though you’re blind to it

All we want is love
Are you blind?
Track Name: Two Thousand Pieces
I was a king before they turned away from me oh oh
Before I go make sure to take my hard earned pay oh oh
Watch my allies flee, for the penitentiary
I promise you that I will be victorious

How dare you say I can’t be here

Say what you wanted to me, ah you
Just broke my heart, in two thousand pieces
So take what you wanted from me, ah you
Just stole my pride, but I promise you that I
Will be victorious

Take everyone and hide
They’ll turn against anyone different
So when I was a boy my mother always said to me oh oh
Don’t trust a soul, and never let your guard down

Say what you wanted to me, ah you
Just broke my heart, in two thousand pieces
So take what you wanted from me, ah you
Just stole my pride, but I promise you that I
Will be victorious

Begging you please to remove me from this dictatorship
Then watch me grow as you whither away

Send me, send me to my nightmare
Take this letter, watch it ignite and burn it to the ground
Say what you want to me
I can’t be here

Say what you wanted to me
Track Name: A Guide To All Things Twisted
Twisted voice on the radio
Tricking us all, prophets are small
Consumerism
I'm overpowered

Shaken by brisk air
Sunny winters glare so blinding

Pleasant little stare
Lost without a care

Fallen to my knees in despair
I can barely breath give me air

Twisted voice on the radio
Tricking us all, prophets are small
Consumerism
I'm overpowered
Twisted voice on the radio

Sunny winters glare

Syncopated hearts in a flame of lust
Reconnect our bonds I said to my muse
So what did you say?

Twisted voice on the radio
Tricking us all, prophets are small
Consumerism
I'm overpowered
Twisted voice on the radio
Tricking us all, prophets are small
Consumerism
I'm overpowered
Twisted voice on the radio

Damned for all my tricks, so unloved
I can barely breathe, do I follow god?
Seems I'm on my knees, praying to no one
Won't you please save me, with your gentle kiss
And if you save me, I'll show you true bliss
