Track Name: Poison
Built for the kill in a fools paradise

built for the fall – another classic plot device

could there be a message here, something more to see?

You're helplessly enslaved now if you truly think we're free


in the same laboratory the same mad men create – they create

a formula prescribed to cure the problems – problems they create

success, wealth – an apparition. Liberty a snare

sovereignty the pound of flesh they seize


in the same laboratory the same mad men create – they create

a formula prescribed to cure the problems – problems they create

debt the ruthless sword – sharp with every lie

their antidote not the answer, its the poison we decry
Track Name: Our Life In 4:4
We go looking for trouble but it beats us to the punch

the bounty of this never fails us

we don't lead by example but we perfect the flaws

“leave it to us” will always be our cause


we can never get enough of these nights

we can never get enough of these dying memories we hold onto

and these times we love to tell so here's to you

see you in hell

so here's to you

see you in hell


we only know one volume, we rock to our own drum

your ears never rang so good – you're welcome

ears are bleeding, bottles empty, hour unknown and now the breakers are blown

there's no control! there's no control! what mother warned you about – rock n' roll


loud, fast, minor progressions are what's saving our souls

so here's some truth and three chords in 4:4

we can never, never, never, never, never get enough

of these dying memories we hold onto

of these dying memories we hold onto

of these dying memories we hold onto


we can never get enough of these nights

we can never get enough of these times we love to tell

see you in hell
Track Name: Between The Eyes
Everyday discontent, nothing now seems to fit

time wasting, burning slow – can't stand the radio

my life seems too straight laced and i'm standing out of place

can't think in black and white – somethings gotta feel more right


finally one thing that's giving me a little hope

i've reached the only place that I wanna go – and now i'm home


had to lose that frame of mind, waiting searching all the time

for a home I did not know – a sense of it to call my own

til I came across a new energy to tap into

checked my pulse, I got results – it hit me right between the eyes


finally one thing that's giving me a little hope

i've reached the only place that I wanna go – and now i'm home

“so in that moment grab onto something, cuz if you do you might have a chance”

I had a chance, don't miss your chance


it hits me right between the eyes
Track Name: The Black
You'll never know

you'll never see the day

you'll never see the truth – the light

until you're on the ground

it's a race to the bottom, can we hit it faster?

Blinded by the fleeting light – the design of disaster


we are the full-scale, slow-motion train wreck

on everlasting rails – our constant end

we bide out time in constant suspense of hellfire

are we already there? Will we ever? Hahaha
