Track Name: Landless Emperor
Lost in the shadows consumed by the darkness,
We fall right into our lives,
See all the motionless useless commotion,
Gets pulled inside the lies,
And we drift into the sun,
Forgoing all that matters

Drug down and turned out and tricked in devotion,
Collapsing on ourselves,
Steal all the styles of twisted emotion,
To fade in what's become,
When we drift into the sun,
Destroying all that matters
Track Name: Dead Reckoning
Well it started so far away from here,
False senses reflect your latent fear,
Paralyzed by thoughts in broken rhyme,
Split in two and blurred out for all time,

Sometimes we go to far,
Can't regret the things you are,
Lose yourself into the void,
Cause it's so far away,

I'm gone today never coming back,
Cause that's my way, easy to forget,
All the ways things used to be,
Cause they're gone and they won't ever be again,

Sometimes we go to far,
Can't forget the things we are,
Lose yourself into the void,
And it's so far away,

Forgot the way, punished by the things I never say,
Buried in the binds that we all grow,
Pushed around by lifetimes in the know,
And that's when the chains all tighten up around my neck,
And the words get lost like I'll never forget and it's gone,

Most times we go to far,
Can't forget the things you are,
Lose yourself into the void,
And you're so far away
Track Name: Ghost King
Cause I sit in the way of this nothing thats on your mind,
Unfinished displays of something you'll despise,
Holding this light that you turned out with my time,
Waiting to pay the admission to your lies,
Sounds that mean words turned to stories you deride,
Listen before you get burned out, and burn your life,

And I know it's been slow but things don't change,
So away you go to join their side,
And you know what it costs, all you are,
Till you're nothing at all,

And you bleed for me
and for those, those that see,
Scream right by you
destroy thoughts untrue
Track Name: Conversations
Please don't believe me honey there's no reason,
You know it's useless from the third time,
Heaven is a place you'd love to be,
Heaven is a place I'd love to see,

Faith has been broken send me out a new one,
Shame on you for thinking you were so right,
Shut your crooked mouth and live for me,
Your smile has worn out chewing on your teeth,

Still won't believe me darling there's no reason,
For putting me down for truth that I can bear,
I'm looking for a plane to take me out of here,
You're standing in the rain pushing lives you cannot steer,
Crazier than this one she's looking down on the sun,
Not the one she loves but the one from outer space,
She'll fill you up with woe then send you towards the light,
But words will never show cause this god is too bright for you,
For you,

If people like that go to heaven, If people like Pat go to heaven,
If people like that go to heaven, if people like Pat go to heaven I'm out,
Save on this one, heaven are you listening
Track Name: Going Back
I'm going right back to where I came from,
I'm still in this same old room,
And I can't believe when people talk to me,
They just ran out of things to see,
So you sit and watch the other painters,
As if every word would fill you up with doom,
And you scream at me with one eye closed,
Now it's enough, cause I'm running out of room,

I'm going right back to where I came from,
Seems like everybody's going somewhere new,
And I'm not standing still it's just this earth reverses slow,
What you know aint what you tell yourself you do,

I'm going right back to where I came from,
It's my world I'll take it with me too,
In a dream I had you looked at me,
And I said something, something that I mean,
And I never think about how love works,
Cause all I ever think about is you,
And if you can't see why sleep don't bother me,
Then I'll sit down and wait here in this room,

I'm going right back to where I came from,
I'm going right back to where I came from,
I'm going right back to where I came from,
I'm going right back to where I'm at
Track Name: Lesson
Well you gone by your word and this is what you're gonna get,
You been saying all these things but nothing ever seemed to fit,
And goddamn I curse you all and now I wish we never met,
What are you singing about my friend,
What are you singing about my friend,

Went on alone I talked about what you believed,
This I was saying all sure as hell could never be,
Cause we're living for these things and your world is what you see,
It's really nothing my friend,
It's really nothing my friend,

Praise all the things around you oh how glorious and then you're spent,
Take all the things you wanted stuff them in your head isn't that what you meant?
Track Name: Revolving Door
Well these things turn away and despite what they say,
Their lines are all drawn and eroded away,
But it won't be forgotten,

And the rot drips behind from that thorn in your side,
And that feeling, well it won't ever subside,
And we lost it all for nothing,

But we live too fast,
These words they don't matter,
Lost in the past,
Questioning why,
We're left here with nothing,

So you're bent & perturbed like the things that you serve,
And it works through your skin all the way to your bones,
But you'll learn much too late that the fate you create,
Lasts much longer than than all the things you berate,
And it won't be forgiven,

But we live too fast,
And these words they won't matter,
You're lost in the past questioning why,
You're left here with nothing
Track Name: White Elephant
You can do what you want and you know that,
You can do me a favor and then turn your back,
I'm low down to the ground,
You can do what you want and you know that,
You can do me a favor and then turn your back,
I'm low down to the ground,
You can do what you want and you can like it,
I should have known I'm the carpet you walk on to make you feel at home,

In my dictation I never learn,
I can't make you walk like you can with one word,
If I speak out you are the only one who's heard,

You can do what you want and you know that,
You can do me a favor and then turn your back,
I'm down low to the ground,
You can do what you want and believe it,
I should have known you'd be leaving,
I wanna know you're feeling down,

In my dictation I never learn,
I can't make you walk like you can with one word,
If I speak out you are the only one who's heard,
Laugh at me and I'll still take it, laugh at my imagination,

You can do what you want and I'm below that,
You can do me a favor and I'll turn right back,
I'm low down to the ground the ground,
You can do what you want and I'm so patient,
You can draw all the lines but I'll erase them,
Till I'm six feet in the ground
Track Name: Song Of Everything Pt.1
All these questions on the side are so far gone,
These distortions of our time, grow so long,
And you know you're always right, sometimes,
Our deception breeds in kind,
And so it goes,

Though we drift so far apart,
You're all so clear in my mind again,
Crawling through these lives,
That linger from before,

What we say,
Bleeds away,
All is lost,
At what cost,

Though we drift so far apart,
You're all so close in my mind again,
These words that used to bind,
Have fallen through the floor
Track Name: Song Of Everything Pt.2
Am l moving or just waiting,
Life's exactly what I made it,
Everything at once related now,

Am I seeing or creating,
Even breathing's now a statement,
I can't see just where, I am facing, now,
But what I see don't matter anyhow,

Not consuming you're all wasting,
Every second's slowly fading,
I'm just using all you're saving now,

Cause what I save don't matter anyhow,
Yeah I know it don't matter anyhow,
And I know we're all matter anyhow,
When we go, don't matter anyhow
Track Name: Easy Eyes
Babe, you had me at always
But I can never say I start to feel ok
then my brain gives up

You don't want me to stay
But if I go away you pull back on this chain
just to make me dumb

It's the way you have with the world when it's under your thumb
And the way you let your words slip under your tongue
