Track Name: Shadow
Can you feel that shadow?

V1: Forever remembered? Ever after should we wait?
Enshrine the emptiness and hate your saving grace
Feel the shadows creeping in, no time to waste
Still try to run away but the fear keeps pace, yeah

Pre chorus: Death will be your master
Follow you from here on after
Silent whisper in vain
Yet no escape

Chorus: Cause the shadow on my back
Yeah the shadow on my back
(can you feel that) Shadow on my back
Yeah the shadow on my back
Tells my fate

V2: In a race with my past every day
Madness tempts my frantic mind-state
When it takes you there’s no retreat
My mind’s a cage and no one can set me free, yeah yeah.

Prechorus
Chorus

Can you feel that shadow?
Track Name: Unspoken
V1: Reading whispers on the wind
Scry the writings on the wall
Sweet stench of truth man made
Has gone a deceived you all
Next to that an echo hall
Feeds you lies for the day
Your own needs keep you locked in chains
And that’s how it’s going to stay

Cause in the age of information
Ignorance is choice
You know you’ve had the answers all along
When systems fail, this is what I’ll tell ya

Chorus: When your heart is in the lines unspoken
never trust your eyes
You’ve gotta listen to your world some times
if you want to see true from the lies
Sometimes it’s in the lines unspoken
we lose ourselves fast
You’ve gotta listen to your heart sometimes
Or your unspoken life Could be your last.

V2: this world’s constructed of the impercievable
Another world comes each brand new day
And it might seem impossible or unknown
An empty dream of heresy
But it’s been said that before every good man died
The silent paved the way
So speak your peace, and live your truth
Build your dream to shared reality

Cause in the age of information
Ignorance is a choice
You know we’ve had the answers all along
When systems fail man, this is what I’ll tell ya

Chorus: When your heart is in the lines upspoken
Never trust your eyes
You’ve gotta listen to your world sometimes
if you want to see through the lies
Sometimes it’s in the lines unspoken
we lose ourselves fast
You’ve gotta listen to your mind sometimes
or your unspoken life
Could be your last.

Could be your last.
Track Name: Trendsetter
You try to be a trendsetter
Try to write a new cliche
But you just end up spitballing
while your words get in your way
Quit with your baby talk
Nobody thinks it’s cute
No one likes a whiner
Your jokes aren’t that astute
Oh yeah, oh right.

Chorus:
You may feel betrayed
You may feel I’m a liar
You may feel I Led you own
But trust me I didn’t try
I only try to respect you
And now I wonder why
Cause respect just doesn’t matter
When the trend you set’s a lie
Just a lie... you’re just a...

V2:
Expect so unexpectedly and grief is all you give
Of course he went and left you girl
To him your just a bitch
Yeah, I used to be your friend
When I thought you were an honest one
But I found the secrets you couldn’t hide
Weren’t just the minor ones
Oh yeah.
All right... oh yeah? All right!

Chorus: You may feel betrayed
You may feel I’m a liar
You may feel I Led you own
But trust me I didn’t try
I only try to respect you
And now I wonder why
Cause respect just doesn’t matter
When the trend you set’s a lie
Just a lie... you’re just a...
Track Name: Skeleton Chair
V1: I walk through this field on burning feet
Blood and sand mixed with my sweat turned dry
I feel like emptying my mind again
When I hide it’s scarred inside

Chorus: Do it again, do it again
Solder my bones to this chair my friend
Freedom is dead, freedom is dead
Ensconced in pain instead

V2:
You show me you’ve got no more to bleed outa me
Speak in tongues you lash till I agree
Grab onto my sanity that flees from me
When you seap inside I’ve got nowhere to hide, oh no...

Chorus: Do it again, do it again
Solder my bones to this chair my friend
Freedom is dead, freedom is dead
Ensconced in pain instead

Bridge:
Aware of mistakes/ pushing until you break
Freedom is dead/ inside your head
Discover your hate/ psychotic break
Freedom is dead/ Whip me again

Freedom is dead. Freedom is dead
Do it again. Inside your head. Inside your head
Whip me again- inside your head.

Chorus: Do it again, do it again
Solder my bones to this chair my friend
Freedom is dead, freedom is dead
Ensconced in pain instead
Track Name: Nemesis Friend of mine
Today I thought back of that nemesis friend of mine
It kept me up awake at nite
Seemingly Lost in time
He Dusted off new ways to get his revenge
But i Bring death and destruction to get my stories end
To this memory it's funny; it flows like a melody
But sometimes it seems more like the future of my enemies
I remember it like yesterday
its playing thru my mind
The whole night a blur
then quickly unwinds
Let's travel back in time
to another culture
Before I ever could say I told ya So
and put truth in a cold shoulder
what he always never had were friends who wouldn't stab his back
And all the while a mother who could not stop smoking crack
A father who never gave two shits and a can of beer
Who beat him
Like red headed stepchild
but the bloodline is clear
No one ever knew it, and no one ever guessed that this once lost and lonely kid
Would grow up to be a menace

Chorus

See He'd threaten and intimidate
bully and repress
Everyone he ever thought could strive for success
Who maybe had a better chance than he could ever have
Of getting off of lonely street
to leave his dead beat past
He couldn't chase the memory of 20 years of pain
Obsessed, he turns to meth
coursing thru his veins
Now he's scratching off his face in a lowbrow part of town
himself now a junkie
a real joker type a clown
Cause now everything's a joke
life's one big laugh
But if he saw it from the outside
this ain't batman or breaking bad
He's got his own reasons for it
And he's justified enough
He's got 10 million reasons to keep sparking up the stuff
We were once in the same station and under the same bar
But life has its own desires written in the stars
I still hate him and wish that he would die violently
I had hoped he'd smoke too much and give up silently
Abandon his life so worthless
cause he didnt rise above
He gave into self pity and wore depression like a glove
But all the anger towards you was motivation to an end,
should I have cut the dude open broke his windpipe with a wrench
Stomped on his chest
until his sternum met the floor
In a bloody rage I'd scream till I couldn't stomp no more
I know He wished the same for me so I'll never try to rewind
To that place in time
My memory
Of that nemesis friend of mine

It's right around the corner
Right around the bend
A future with no love and terror with no end
That's what they say to me today with a dirty fucking smile
But I pulled myself out of fear been crawling for miles
