Moving Slowly
Suit and Cape
Poor Me
I Don't Care
Coda
Dead By Dawn

Can you hear me screaming
These walls of hallow padding
Lose your voice in a sea of noise

We’re coming back mark my words

A rasp I wake to speak is to walk again
These feelings failed to faze me
A crush I take to feel my head again
They will never take me

Solemnly swear that anger will control this fear
It all means nothing to me

We’re coming back mark my words

A rasp I wake to speak is to walk again
These feelings failed to faze me
A crush I take to feel my head again
They will never take me

Brothers on a stage
Alone in a maze
When it ends it just begins

We’re coming back mark my words

A rasp I wake to speak is to walk again
These feelings failed to faze me
A crush I take to feel my head again
They will never take me

They’ll never take me
They’ll never take me
They’ll never take me
They’ll never take me

Lyrics by Matthew Sikora and Jason Zielonka

Adapt to the trend
You’ll be sure to make them drool
Orbit the dollar
Sniff out the perfect fool
I can’t wait to see you drop you’re youth
I felt your anger, seen hell behind your eyes

Stab it in the back
Do it once again
Love before it’s gone
Kill it just for fun

Uncloak the victim
You see him running scared
Lost the plot
Now he’s maturing nameless
Stuck in the fold
Now he’s turning on his own
Take what you’ve sewn and deny it’s right to be

Stab it in the back
Do it once again
Love before it’s gone
Kill it just for fun

Lyrics by Matthew Sikora and Jason Zielonka

What are you saying to me
Would you please stop yelling in my ear
I’m not attached to your grapevine
I think you’re gravely mistaken

They’re of the ones who just can’t keep it shut
Your secrets safe with me
It’s he said she said I don’t give a fuck
Your secrets safe with me

Gossip is flooding my space
Should have been born with some stapled lips
I’m losing at tug-o-war traveling down the wire
You liar

They’re of the ones who just can’t keep it shut
Your secrets safe with me
It’s he said she said I don’t give a fuck
Your secrets safe with me

Chatterbox talk talk oh won’t you keep it shut
A truth I’ll keep and take to the grave with me
Your secrets safe with me
This trust won’t break unless you fake it
Your secrets safe with me

They’re of the ones who just can’t keep it shut
Your secrets safe with me
It’s he said she said oh please tell me more
Your secrets safe with me

Lyrics by Matthew Sikora

Just want to go for a while
Leave a life that’s declared me a captive
Float up past all the smog
I think I’m choking on fresh air

Getting away
I’m getting away
Getting away
I’m getting away
Making my escape
For now

Pills for boys are like children’s toys
There will be no growing out of this
Hydroplaned on my bed
Nap times only a heartbeat today

Getting away
I’m getting away
Getting away
I’m getting away
Making my escape
From me

Pills for boys are like children’s toys
There will be no growing out of this
Hydroplaned on my bed
Nap times only a heartbeat today

Getting away
I’m getting away
Getting away
I’m getting away

Lyrics by Matthew Sikora

It seems you’re doing so well
Let me shake your hand
Be the first to say I’m never coming back

Take down the smile for a while
Look at my denial
Holds my breath to say
I’m never coming back

You’re setting me up
A mother in hand
You’re setting me up
My murder in hand
A steel plan
My murder in hand

It seems I’m doing so swell
Let me shake my hand
Be the first to scream
I’m never coming back

You’re setting me up
A mother in hand
You’re setting me up
My murder in hand
A steel plan
My murder in hand

Lyrics by Matthew Sikora

I would
If I could
I would
Try to turn things around
I would if I could
I would if I could
live it

Run along the red cement
It’s stained from scars not intimate
Somewhere across the way
All is wrong and so I say

I would
If I could
I would
Try to turn things around
I would if I could
I would if I could
Livid

I’m livid

I’ve crashed and I’ve burned
I’m stuck in the tar pits
It’s these midnight smiles
They’re all around me

I’m waiting for fuel
Oh bleak castle view
Please bring me back to where I left off

Oh no I’m moving slowly
Oh no I’m moving slowly
Now

And so we make our way through towns that found their way
It’s time to say goodbye
My cell it’s far away

Onward I’m finally moving
Onward I’m finally moving
To my next destination

Crystallized engine failure
It all makes me sick
They frown upon my fall
It all makes me sick

Lyrics by Matthew Sikora

Walk against the grain
Again for shame
For a way that’s left to see
A vice for you
A vice for me
A vice for everyone to be

Made a pain inside
A way to hide
For a way that’s left to be
A vice for you
A vice for me
A vice for everyone to be

It’s like losing hold the weight of it all
Villain of my escape misplaced my suit and cape
Misplaced a god for hate

Lyrics by Matthew Sikora and Jason Zielonka

It’s so wrong I got it right another time
This won’t slide
I’ll stand my ground and not hide
Feeling sorry, pitty me
Cause I need to feed
Call me leach
I’ll lift my head cause I’m full of you

I’ve got to tell you
It’s what I have and what I need
Reach and I’ll drain you
It’s what I have and what I need to be
Poor Me

Lyrics by Matthew Sikora and Jason Zielonka

Hey all my friends I’m delusional again
But I feel blessed cause I don’t care anymore
I’ll sing a little flat so it sounds real

Screamed out loud thank God abortions free
Now it’s time to unwind
She made herself a casualty

The ground always swallows them
Down she goes
Another glass of wine
I’ll poison yours you’ll poison mine

Cause I don’t care anymore

June said
She cares not who I am
Boy I’m relieved
Cause there’s hope for the master plan

Try to suppress my thoughts how American of me
Another glass of wine
I’ll poison yours you’ll poison mine

Cause I don’t care anymore

It seems I’m stuck on this plane
I wanna get down, I wanna get down
Make me an offer I can’t refuse
I wanna get down, I wanna get down,
I wanna get high

Hey all my friends, they’re delusional again
I try to suppress my thoughts how American of me
How American…

I don’t care anymore
Oh well who cares

Lyrics by Matthew Sikora and Jason Zielonka

I had to stare death in the eyes
I couldn’t look away
I had to know
I said are you a friend or foe
And she just smiled at me
And vanished in a haze

Is this a fantasy or reality

I was swallowed by the ground
The sirens carried off
On through the dark

Locked inside
Underneath the ice
I have seen the eyes
That open grace
In between the pits
Which I have fallen in
I’ve looked inside my own true shell
And beneath the fools
Who follow kings
I have seen the bears
Only this

I had to stare life in the eye
I couldn’t look away
It passed me by

That was no fantasy

We can make it through the night
Worst case scenario
Monsters born from man
Run if you can

Dead by Dawn

Come on Ash grab your Chainsaw
Chainsaw!

Lyrics by Matthew Sikora and Jason Zielonka

California Way

It's kinda like Holiday
When the grey skies blown away
Skipping the reasons, the freezing seasons gotta go
I know, I know, I know
It feels like summer in the air

I'm in love with California
California ways
I've fallen hard
For California

It's a place to run away
Where the sun shines everyday
Leaving the seasons
Back where darkness seems to grow
I know, I know, I know
It feels like summer in the air

I'm in love with California
California ways
I've fallen hard
For golden summer skies
I'm in love with California
California rays
I've fallen hard
For California
Whoa California
Whoa Golden Summer Skies
Whoa California

I'm in love with California
California ways
I've fallen hard
For golden summer skies
I'm in love with California
California rays
I've fallen hard
For California
Whoa California
Whoa Golden Summer Skies
Whoa California

POSTHUMOUS

Don’t tell me this is the end
Though it seems like a sad ascension
It takes moments to kick in
So let’s get closer to get stronger

We take a short fall
But it’s a long rise
Looks like this will be the last time I see you again
And i’ll never forget
Now we carry on and on

Don’t tell me this is goodbye
Now it seems like life has stalled
Yes I know this to be true
Well time has come to pass

We take a short fall
But it’s a long rise
Looks like this will be the last time I see you again
And i’ll never forget
Now we carry on and on

We take a short fall
But it’s a long rise
Looks like this will be the last time I see you again
At least for a while
Now we carry on and on

Posthumous

We carry on

We carry on

THE HALO EFFECT

Always was, but never something
Could it be that it’s deceiving
Deny my senses
Where were you
In time of need

I had trust in you
I’ll take it all away so you can’t hide
Abject from this
Here me know me
You’re crawling back no more
No more
No more

Pretend that you are real now
Wouldn’t it make a difference to me
Tell the truth, no more lies
It’s happening again

I had trust in you
I’ll take it all away so you can’t hide
Abject from this
Here me know me
You’re crawling back no more
No more
No more
No more

Flawless by practice
Pretend that you are real now
Abject from this
Here me know me
You’re crawling back no more

I had trust in you
I’ll take it all away so you can’t hide
Abject from this
Here me know me
You’re crawling back no more
No more
No more
No more
No more

CARRION

Remember betrayal scarring life
Remember the cold sting of fear
Remember deceiving waves of sound
Rewinds and echos in my ear

I’m mourning my warning
I’m losing and fading
Contagious scarring
Are you to be just like me

Am I so safe in here
My wounds are deep and poisonous
Am I so safe in here
My wounds are deep and poisonous

Forgetting the pain that fractured my heart
Undoing memories made from the start
Believing I’m someone I’m not
Tired of being what you want me to be

I’m mourning my warning
I’m losing and fading
Contagious scarring
Are you to be just like me

Am I so safe in here
My wounds are deep and poisonous
Am I so safe in here
My wounds are deep and poisonous

I betray, betray you
In blaspheminic ways I defy you
Through your heart I scathe unseen
Undone, Unblessed, Unholy

Am I so safe in here
My wounds are deep and poisonous
I mourn and warn for your sake
My wounds are deep and poisonous

BINGE

Have you ever taken thought to how you’d spend
A wish randomly received
Would it be for human good or self satisfaction
Would it be what you always wished for

Go all out
Leave no expense
Your subconscious haunts my desire
This wish is for you and
Spend it as you please

Woah
Take everything you can
Always wanted more
Woah
And never look back

What would you wish for?
Is it universal?
Does it quench your undying thirst for more?
Regret echos walls of instant empires
But you’re still alone

Go all out
Leave no expense
Your subconscious haunts my desire
This wish is for you yeah
Spend it as you please

Woah
Take everything you can
Always wanted more
Woah
And never look back
Woah
Take everything you can
Always wanted more
Woah
And never look back

Take everything you can
Take all that you can

Take everything you can
And never look back
Take everything you can
And never look back
Take everything you can
And never never never look back
Take everything you can

MINDS THAT PLAGUE

This time I feel like I don’t belong and
My place is somewhere outside the box and
Make me feel like I need to hold you close
Show me it’s worth the climb
I’ve finally found myself in you

Ignore the principles
Ignore the minds that plague
The minds that plague
I found my own
I found my…

I tried to think with my heart and not my head
Don’t let them make you think differently
Your eyes they make the world disappear
Show me it’s worth the climb
I’ve finally found myself in you

Ignore the principles
Ignore the minds that plague
The minds that plague
I found my own
I found my
Ignore the principles
Ignore the minds that plague
The minds that plague
I found my own
I found my…

I can’t ignore anymore the one that I adore
I can’t ignore anymore the one that I adore
I can’t ignore anymore the one that I adore
I can’t ignore anymore the one that I adore

Ignore the principles
Ignore the minds that plague
The minds that plague
I found my own
I found my
Ignore the principles
Ignore the minds that plague
The minds that plague
I found my own
I found my
Minds that plague
