Lyrics:

1. Roots and Tremors (Keiper)

Hurry up. My friends are all awake. Hurry up. My friends are all awake. Hurry up. My friends are all awake. Wasn't meant to be subtle. Was never meant to be safe. Put your face in a bag, then you're on your way out. Shapes in the shadows. Smoke rolls in waves. It's taking forever, but I'm not dying today. Laying my fate in the arms of a fake knight. Don't make a fool of me. Rattle my bones, mix 'em up 'til I feel right. Don't make a fool of me. Planted a seed and it spread into your life. Don't make a fool of me. I wouldn't dream, but you told me it's alright. Inhale the last light then fall with me. Hurry up. My friends are all awake. Wasn't meant to be subtle. Was never meant to be saved. Filling the molds up to be the ones that they crave. They're planning a battle. A genocidal parade. Won't live forever, but I'm not dying today. Laying my fate in the arms of knight. Don't make a fool of me. Rattle my bones, mix 'em up 'til I feel right. Don't make a fool of me. Planted a seed and it spread into your life. Don't make a fool of me. I wouldn't dream, but you told me it's alright. Inhale the last light then fall with me. Fall to me. Laying my fate in the arms of a fake knight. Don't make a fool of me. Rattle my bones, mix 'em up 'til I feel right. Don't make a fool of me. Planted a seed and it spread into your life. Don't make a fool of me. I wouldn't dream, but you told me it's alright. Inhale the last light then fall with me. Fall to me.

2. This Is Where You Escape (Paczek / Keiper)

Do you wanna know where dreams come from? Take a look inside my little one. Do you wanna see it come undone? Do you wanna be the chosen one? Don't you wanna, don't you wanna think about it? Do you wanna, do you wanna get it wrong? Don't you wanna, don't you wanna dream about it? Do you wanna, do you wanna sing along? No sense walkin' away from here. This is where you escape from fear. One time singin' along and now you're stuck in song. One time singin' along and now you're stuck in a... One time singin' along and now you're stuck in a song. One time singin' along and now you're stuck in a... Do you wanna know where dreams come from? Take a look inside my little one. Do you wanna see it come undone? Do you wanna be the chosen one? Don't you wanna, don't you wanna think about it? Do you wanna, do you wanna get it wrong? Don't you wanna, don't you wanna dream about it? Do you wanna, do you wanna sing along? No sense walkin' away from here. This is where you escape from fear. One time singin' along and now you're stuck in a song. One time signin' along and you're stuck in a... One time singin' along and now you're stuck in a song. One time singin' along and you're stuck in a...

3. Zero Six by Four (Paczek / Keiper)

Skies turn grey. Here comes the rain. Here comes the rain. Wash it away. Crack of thunder now it's pouring down on my head. I can't remember what she said. In the middle of the flooded out pavement. I can't remember what he said. Down below as the dams burst open. I can't remember what she said. Erase the pain... as the floods wash it away. Away today. Here comes the rain. Crack of thunder now it's pouring down on my head. I can't remember what she said. In the middle of the flooded out pavement. I can't remember what he said. Down below as the dams burst open. I can't remember what she said. Erase the pain... as the floods wash it away. Crack of thunder now it's pouring down on my head. I can't remember what she said. In the middle of the flooded out pavement. I can't remember what he said. Down below as the dams burst open. I can't remember what she said. Erase the pain... as the floods wash it away. I can't remember what she said. I can't remember what he said. I can't remember what she said. I can't remember what he said. I can't remember what she said. I can't remember what he said. I can't remember what she said. I can't remember what he said.

4. A Regular In This House (Keiper)

We'll surely miss it. We'll surely miss it. If my foot slips off we'll go. Lovely lady take my... Shifting shapes and we're gonna make it. Lifting traces of what you were. Come now see me the time nearing. I will make you a regular in this house. You surely missed it. You surely missed, but I am much too cold to know. Lovely lady take my... Shifting shapes and we're gonna make it. Lifting traces of what you were. Come now see me the time is nearing. I will make you a regular in this house. Shifting shapes and we're gonna make it. Lifting traces of what you were. Come now see me the time is nearing. I will make you a regular in this... A regular in in this... A regular in this... A regular in this... A regular in this house. A regular in this house. In this house.

5. By the Arrow (Keiper / Paczek)

Looking good as far as I can see. The light of night has got the best of me. Now I'm down at the bottom alone. Always run when something's wrong. Movin' on. Keep movin' on. Lines are drawn into the stone. Movin' on. Movin' on. Escape this place you don't belong. Movin' on. Keep movin' on. You can sit beside an empty throne. All alone. All alone. If you wanna talk to Jesus honey, please just let me know. You've been put down by the arrow that you pushed in your own throat. You can sacrifice yourself just like the ones who let you go. You've been put down by the arrow. You don't know. Always run when something's wrong. Movin' on. Keep movin' on. Lines are drawn into the stone. Movin' on. Movin' on. Escape this place you don't belong. Movin' on. Keep movin' on. You can sit beside an empty throne. All alone, all alone. If you wanna talk to Jesus honey, please just let me know. You've been put down by the arrow that you pushed in your own throat. You can sacrifice yourself just like the ones who let you go. You've been put down by the arrow. You don't know.

6. Lost in a Phase (Keiper / Paczek)

I can't remember. Dig a ditch. Plant a seed. Give it everything it needs. Sit back. Watch it bleed into everything you know. Laced facts double these level spaces for your greed. Please don't tell me when you leave. Surely I don't want to know. Lost in a phase. Take my side into the storm. Nothing's changed. Run from the eye? We've never. Burning prefix memories. Less is more, but more I need. Think of all this used to be everything you've ever known. She's cracked open with a smile. I can stay just for awhile. Leaking down these dirty aisles? Surely I don't want to know. Lost in a phase. Take my side into the storm. Something's changed, but I can't remember.

7. Next to Grace (Keiper)

Little lies and berry wines won't make your dreams come true. Spinning through this open place that they have gifted you. Control. Control. I need to know. Wake the master of my soul. Control. Control. I need to know. Wake the master of my soul. It's all fine. We'll let it slide you simple minded fool. Never minding place and space that we have given you. Control. Control. I need to know. Wake the master of my soul. Control. Control. I need to know. Wake the master of my soul. I would follow you into the sun. Being next to grace won't save me when you're gone. Laced your mind. Your breed has died. This world's consuming you. Control. Control. I need to know. Wake the master of my soul. I would follow you into the sun. Being next to grace won't save me when you're gone. I would follow you into the sun. Being next to grace won't save me when you're gone. I would follow you intro the sun. Being next to grace won't save me when you're gone. I would follow you into the sun. Being next to grace won't save me when you're gone.

8. Embracing the Shadow (Paczek / Keiper)

Feel inside what you hide. Rethink your purpose in life. Dig deeper until you see what you're trained not to be. Feel what's inside. Feel what is real. Dig deeper. Break the seal. Feel what's inside. Feel all that's real. You feel it. You can't deny. I've told you one too many times. Embracing the shadow inside. Feel inside what you hide. Rethink your purpose in life. Look closer until you see what you're trained not to be. Fuck insight, 'cause you don't try. Rethink your purpose in my life. God, I need it. God, I need it. I need it, I can't deny. I've told you one too many times. Embracing the shadow inside. Born to live down in your hole. In your blackened soul. Black water comes. I watch you float. I watch you go. I watch you float. Sealed and signed. Open your mind. Embracing the shadow inside. Sealed and signed. Open your mind. Embracing the shadow inside. I've told you one too many times. Embracing the shadow inside. Born to live down in your hole. In your blackened soul. Black water comes. I watch you float. I watch you go. I watch you float.

    9. Grasping (Keiper)

    Inside I slide and push on you. Couldn't face an ounce of truth. Hurry now, define your Zeus. It's time. It's time to see the proof. This is not the end. We'll let it fall into an endless motion. Fill her soul again. I didn't come here to wait. Give me a reason. Let's erase the mistake. Give me a reason. I didn't come here to wait. Give me a reason. Get on your noose. They lied their lies and pushed on you. Couldn't face an ounce of truth. Hurry now, define your Zeus. It's time. It's time to be the proof. This is not the end. I saw you in my dreams. Fix this simple head. Make it whole again. I didn't come here to wait. Give me a reason. Let's erase the mistake. Give me a reason. I didn't come here to wait. Give me a reason. Get on your noose. We cried and tried. We pushed on you. Couldn't come back to the truth. Hurry now, define your Zeus. It's time. It's time. You are the proof.

    10. Burning Redwoods (Keiper)

    Take what I want for me. Like man before this land is mine now. An evil they cannot see. Complete control over the savage. Rape and I pillage free. Free is a joke, for you are not, and ignorance is the key. Justifies our wicked ways, but still it is to be clean. Praise be to God, the holy father. As we continue deep into this redwood forest calling. Burning redwoods. Die in this sea of trees. Burning redwoods. Spirits will dance with me. Burning redwoods. Choose what your life will be. Burning redwoods. Run through the tragic scene. Sin has spread over this mountain. Heathens they try and scream. Those devils fight, but still there's closure. This place was made for me, so natives bleed into the trees. Forever they shall be souls lost in eternity in these burning redwoods. Die in this sea of trees. Burning redwoods. Spirits will dance with me. Burning redwoods. Choose what your life will be. Burning redwoods. Bring them to me. Bring them to me. I'll wash your sins and set you free. I'll make you believe. I'll make you see. Bleed for me. Bleed for me. Bleed for me. Bleed for... Bow to your king. Bow to your kind. This righteous hand of thine is strong. You'll see. Bleed for me. Bleed for me. Bleed for me. Bleed for... In your name they no longer breath. In your name they no longer breed. I will take this place you made for me.

    11. Leave Us This (Paczek / Keiper)

    Downer creep cut your teeth. Broken kid dives into hell. Love sick too quick. Another freak for the show and tell. Rot pumped into blood. A good soul in a tortured hole. Dark brain begins to flood. Sick plan beyond control. Downer creep cut your teeth. Broken kid dives into hell. Love sick too quick. Another freak for the show and tell. Rot pumped into blood. Good soul in a tortured hole. Dark brain begins to flood. Sick plan beyond control. Now your world of mischief is made public everyday. Could have saved the misfits. Could have shown them all the way. Downer creep cut your teeth. Let your kin dive into hell. Love sick too quick. Another freak for the show and tell. How could you leave us this. How could you leave us all this way. Aboard the wasted ship. It's filled with screams and memories. I never wanted this. Never wanted it this way. Words from tainted lips. Nothing more that you could say. Downer creep. Sick freak. Sick freak. Downer creep.
