Track Name: Boat on Boiling Water
Just wait a while and youll see,
just what a game this life can be.
Just wait a day and then youll see,
how fast we kill society.

This whirling circus never ends,
its filled with double crossing friends
And when you run home on the lam,
the doc prescribes diazepam,

You say your life is empty,
theyll just call your bluff.
Youre still alive and well,
but thats not enough,
its not enough.

still they wont come to your defense
they choose to laugh at your expense
that trend wont stop with you or me
thats all there is now on TV

And when you stop to rest,
the birds watch overhead,
with every breath thats passed,
they hope you're dead.
They hope you're dead.

The walls are thinner than you think,
and yea, we've pushed them to the brink.
And of this world that we call home,
its just become another Rome

Unlike the worlds before us,
we havent crumbled yet.
We need to learn from them,
and not forget.
No dont forget.
Track Name: Out For Blood
they'd call me monster if they heard what I should say
while they all rant and rave because she got away
but if law is based in logic then thats just the price we pay
and I really hope I'm not the only one

we like to think we're better than we were before
but news comes in than men just died fighting our war
our blood runs black as oil in this dying bloated whore
and its hard to say its more than just revenge

we're out for blood it seems, it never ends, time and time again
its in our nature that we like to kill, we can and always will

two men held captive fight to death with sword and spear
no chance for life today, the end is very clear
when Nero gives the thumbs down you can bet the crowd will cheer
and that roar will be the last thing one will hear

we're out for blood it seems, it never ends, time and time again
its in our nature that we like to kill, we can and always will
the blood thats spilled is caused by all of us, though we say its not
but i still wash my hands tell myself "out with that damned spot"

we're out for blood it seems, it never ends, time and time again
its in our nature that we like to kill, we can and always will
the blood thats spilled is caused by all of us, though we say its not
but i still wash my hands tell myself "out with that damned spot"
Track Name: Special
s kids they told us everyday
that we're great and special in some way
but now it isnt hard to see
this world is filled with people just like me

it isnt hard to see
it isnt hard to see

that our characters controlled
mass produced from some generic mold
yet we cling to what they used to say
we fight to stay unique in the same way

we fight in the same way
we fight in the same way

and so the trend goes on and on
there'll be more like you when you are gone
but the fight will continue through the years
we'll embrace illusion to confront our fears
Track Name: Throne of Kings
i had a dream the throne of kings
would bow before a wandering man
he poured his blood and soul to fill
and quench a dried up land
the years gone by an old man grey
beside the road his body lay
and life goes on, but not for him
a man that noone saved

though when he ruled they cheered his name
they never knew what he became
once he lost use, he's thrown away
his life forgot within a day

but in his mind the halls are bright
with gold and jewels beneath his might
and though they'll leech someone again
he'll linger on, a long lost friend
Track Name: Truth & Other Lies
Ive tried so hard to know whats right and wrong but still I have no clue
but someone always says they know they do
and every time I ask them why they show theyre just a fool

gone that way you know the lies will come and grow the way they do
noone knows why they well up deep inside of you
but all I know is that it bends the facts and eats through you

you think youre right but then perspective shows whats on the other side
evil men think theyre a saint until the day they die
from someones view I could be wrong, so whats a truth or lie
Track Name: Burn
its 1AM and I cant sleep, instead I lay awake
felt the last straw added on and I've begun to break
so I stand match in hand, noone hears a sound
they think theyre strong, but they are wrong
cause its time I burn it down

tell me why Im weary
tell me I'm far gone
If nihilism's comforting
I must be living wrong
they say some men are happy
to watch the world burn
I think I know that feeling now
and I'm waiting for my turn

it seems that every formula just didnt work for me
tried my best and failed still, and I've begun to see
its more fun to block the sun, be a stone on the road
build in vain, I'm your bain
I'll make sure you get what youre owed

tell me why I'm weary
tell me I'm far gone
If nihilism's comforting
I must be living wrong
so keep on building up now
to any given height
I'd bet my life the pyramids
give way to dynamite

whyd you even try
(thought nothings left to lose)
strung out left to die
(i should have seen the clues)
know the reasons why
(I learned a lesson that)
our hope exists to drag us further down
Track Name: Over You
In spite of the fact you dont believe that its true, over you.
Im not looking back, but i know that you do, dont you?
Needless to say thats the way i thought it would be, you and me.

Girl thats our link, we both regret what we do, dont you?
And babe thats my drink, I play so i dont think of you.
And ive found its not hard to hide when youre hollow inside.

and the feelings still there
like a cold wind blowing
ill pretend i dont care
but the tears are still flowing

Baby i know through the years ill still be here for you.
I cant let you go, but I can say that I tried, thats true.
And i know youll be my ball and my chain again.
