Track Name: Down in the Dirt
I am just a drop in the ocean
I have no excuse for my lies
You came along in all this commotion
And cut me to size
I am not an asker of questions
And I don't need to beg for your help
And I don't need to spread my opinion
I can sort it out for myself

Down in the dirt, right where it hurts
Fading into the hole I am trailing
Into the soul I am sailing
Pushing me down in the dirt
Fading into the hole I am trailing
Treading the water, prevailing
Pushing me down in the dirt

I am just a drop in the ocean
I repeat the words of the wise
You came along in all this commotion
Came along and made me realize
I am just a speck in the spectrum
I am just a fly on the wall
I could never bask in your glamour
I could never see it, I could never see through it all

Down in the dirt, way down

I am just a drop in the ocean
I repeat the words of the wise
You came along in all this commotion
Came along and made me realize
I am not an asker of questions
And I don't need to beg for your help
And I don't need to spread my opinion
I can sort it out for myself

Down, down in the dirt, way down
Down, right where it hurts, way down
Down, down in the dirt, way down

Down
Track Name: World of Conversation
Always hoping for the future
We postpone it once again
Finding ways to be distracted
Hoping to be entertained
Can't seem to understand it
It's not the way we planned it
It's not the way it's meant to be
I feel a certain sadness
An itching burning madness
I'm sick of inactivity

In a world of conversation you have to make a change
You seize the situation, you are an animal
In spite of your frustration, there's nothing pre-arranged
And in this situation you are an animal

Your expensive education
Custom tailored suit and tie
There's no time for hesitation
When you're in the camera's eye
It's time for rearranging, change for the sake of changing
Out with the old in with the new
We need a revolution, a dirty quick solution
We'll leave the details up to you

In a world of conversation you have to make a change
You seize the situation, you’re an animal
In spite of your frustration, there's nothing pre-arranged
And in this situation you are an animal
An animal

We tried to talk to you, you left us waiting on the ground
And the devil that we knew was nowhere to be found
A one-way avenue, there is no chance to turn around
And the devil that we knew was nowhere to be found

Another glory seeker, a perfect public speaker
A single spark ignites the flame
But now the bridge is burning, no chances of returning
Your life will never be the same

In a world of conversation you had to make a change
You seized the situation, you’re an animal
In spite of your frustration, there's nothing pre-arranged
And in this situation you you’re an animal
An animal
Track Name: Tried
Tried to see the world through another’s eyes
Tried to find the truth but I found your lies
Tried to please them all but I’m spread too thin
Don’t know where I end and where I begin

All of your fears become you
All of your hate is trapped inside
Holding the thread that binds you
Both of my hands are firmly tied

Tried to steal the fragments of my youth
Tried to shield myself from the brutal truth
Tried to rebuild all that I've destroyed
Tried to fill this gaping fuckin void

All of your fears become you
All of your hate is trapped inside
Holding the thread that binds you
Both of my hands are firmly tied

Tried to send my message back to you
Tried to leave my mark before I’m through
Tried to be someone I’ve never been
Chasing down another fleeting dream

All of your fears become you
All of your hate is trapped inside
Holding the thread that binds you
Both of my hands are firmly tied
Track Name: Pretender
You kept a picture to remember
You cut it down to wallet size
You swore it would be like this forever
And then one day you realize

I know some day I could pretend to live this way, a hopeless helpless man
I wouldn't defend you
You did what you had to do
You've spoiled all my plans

And when this masquerade is over
When all your questions disappear
One day when all the doubt will vanish
And then the passage will be clear

I guess you'd say
How could you leave me here this way
A hopeless helpless man
I wouldn't defend you
You did what you had to do
You've spoiled all my plans

You took all they gave to you
You don't deserve to allow this chance to pass
You know what is meant for you
You have the nerve to escape this house of glass

And your baggage will be left behind
And the life you leave will disappear over time
When you open your mind

I know some day I could pretend to live this way, a hopeless helpless man
I wouldn't defend you
You did what you had to do
You've spoiled all my plans
Track Name: Evergreen
The sand on my fingers,
It once felt like water, long ago
Corrupted by years, of feeling immortal, and I know

I will never feel cold

Not tired of swimming,
Not tired of treading through the snow
The water is steaming, the glaciers are melting, and I know

I will never feel cold

I will go to a place where the sea meets the sky
Where good men turn to stone as their widowed wives cry
Where the blood runs so thick and is sweeter than wine
Where the strong eat the weak and the weak go to die
Where torture is pleasure and kindness is pain
Where the sinful are free and the free are insane
Where the temperature’s set to one hundred and five
Where morals are dead and where I feel alive

What did I forget here?
What is it that bring me to this place?
There’s pain in my fingers, and lines that the wind carved on my face

I will never feel cold

With the salt from the east we are bound
As this wind blows the sand into clouds
And the lips that kiss this land are blistered from the sun
With the sand here and gone
Track Name: Little by Little
Strangled by the love you bring
Lost my faith in everything
Saw through your hypocrisy
You don’t know what’s best for me

Slowly, we’re coming around
Slowly, regaining our ground
Slowly, we’re coming around
Little by little

I won’t do what I am told
I won’t buy what I am sold
I won't play the games you play
I will find another way

Slowly, we’re coming around
Slowly, regaining our ground
Slowly, we’re coming around
Little by little

Little by little, we will find a way
Little by little, we will make you pay
Make you pay

Strangled by the love you bring
Lost my faith in everything
Here I sit upon my throne
Stuck inside the comfort zone

Growing older every day
Left with nothing more to say
Rebuilt all that I’ve destroyed
Crawling back onto the void
Track Name: Pull the Strings
The night, it settles itself before me
And I don’t know where to run
And I don’t think that I can survive another

In a momentary weakness
Unbeknownst to all the world
I have simply lost my will to live
Simply lost myself

Like a puppeteer, I watch them dance around me
Straws of hopeful dreams, filling up their heads
Little did I know, about the fear that binds me
Would I have been better off a puppet instead
I can no longer see the forest for the trees
Don't know why anyone would want to follow me
I stand upon a broken tower of shattered glass
I should have known that this was never meant to last

I don't know, I don't know what else to do
And I don't know if there's anything worse doing
Where do I find the strength to pull me through
Don't think I can find the courage to begin
Am I simply a puppet on display
Messing up the steps another show I've ruined
Or am I just a careless puppeteer destined to live out my days attached to strings

Swaying on my feet
I welcome the defeat
And I just want to move on
And I’ve played this part too long

Dancing on display
Puppets in a play
But I know all this will end
We are tied to this my friend
Pull the strings try to break free
After all you’ll follow me
Track Name: Grand Inquisitor
Staring at the clock in anticipation
Waiting for the sound of the starting gun
But how did I end up behind the curtain?
How was I left behind these walls?

Eyes trapped inside an hourglass
Dreams drowning in its sands
Elusive yearnings of the past
Subdued inside the man
Help me to put this into words
Someone can understand
Is there any reason to believe
That this isn't all there is to it

(It’s just a boundary in your mind)

The light's fading down the corridor
It must be now or never
Trailing, failing, I feel I’m always just one step behind
Out of phase, out of time, inside the boundary of my mind

So burn the candle at both ends
Only to dim the glow
Push to the limits just to reach
The unexceptional
Pause for a moment but you know
You have arrived too late
Watch everything that you have built
Collapsing underneath its weight

(Just break the boundary in your mind)

The light's fading down the corridor
It must be now or never
Trailing, failing, I feel I’m always just one step behind
Out of phase, out of time, inside the boundary of my mind

But down the rabbit hole the answer lies
Unraveling itself right before your eyes
One more time around, just one last chance
Before the clock runs out and you lose the race
The light shines mockingly, and keeps you still
The more you fight the more you seem to lose your will
So through the rabbit hole, you still hold on
The path is clearer now that the fear is gone

At times I fear it’s now forever
And sometimes I feel there’s no end in sight
Sometimes it seems there’s no tomorrow
Sometimes I can’t see an end to the night

Adrift in an ocean of questions unanswered
I sit here and await the sound of the starting gun
Track Name: Be All and End All
You’re just a drop in my endless void
Another moment that yet unfolds
An endless dance of life and death
Eternal struggle of hot and cold
Countless flashes before my eyes
A billion thoughts materialise
My mind is your infinity
My life is your eternity

I'm the be all and end all
I am all you hold sacred
(Your nightmares and dreams)
I'm the dark void and light of the stars
All there is and ever was

Long have I gazed upon your world
Waiting in vain for you to rise
Ensnared by chaos you struggle on
Crippled by vanity and pride

I feel the yearning of countless souls
Afraid and cold, they roam alone
Seeking me out, too blind to see
They’re already inside of me

I'm the be all and end all
I am all you hold sacred
(I'm everything)
I'm the dark void and light of the stars
All there is and ever was

Your ways are mistaken, you’ve all but forsaken
Your part in this tale
Time and again you choose foe over friend
Raising the veil
Stuck in a spiral your lust has gone viral
There is no cure
But before long all your kind will be gone
Of This I'm Sure

Life's a wheel
Spinning round
Never stops
Or slows down
In the end
I'll remain
Then we’ll start
Once again
