Track Name: Essentially Broken
A panic sets and we decide to
Burn this town
You find a minute to collect yours
No one's found

Then I gotta get away
3 sheets to the wind
Oh the silence

Education in the wrong hands
Blame the state
Re-calibration of the payout
Sealed their fate

But everybody gets away
Their backs to the wind
Oh the sight of this rote and idle dissent

Blissfully wade through the sound of our bones now crushed into dust
like the dreams of a home
Destined to say... No no no I don't care
Reactions aren't sanctioned if you're sitting don't stand
I say you...

See no
Evil
You must
Be so essentially broken to feel so safe

The population is against us
Faced with rage
The hesitation to accept all
The truths we've saved

Still makes no sense
All false expressions
No on the fence
But leaned against it

They feel no...
pain
True gains....
Will not...
Be felt when no one complains

Blissfully stride through the sound of their lies now crushed into
dust like the hills and the skies
Effectively state ... No no no I won't care
Complacent to rot amongst the shit and despair
I say you must...

Be so essentially broken to feel so safe
Track Name: The Clarity of Open Spaces
Well I am the restless one
To pass connections on
From peak to peak the sine waves
Are representations of the way

In the wide open
I can see everything I need

But better to crawl
And not to fall
Better to feign that all you want
Is solitude
Sane, but then again
Better to fail
Then not at all

And I am the useless son
Seeking protection from
The face to face of aggressions
That come from reckless sons

In the wide open
I can see everything I need

But better to crawl
And not to fall
Better to feign that all you want
Is solitude
Sane, but then again
Better to fail
Then not at all

Oh... No way to say
So... No way to fail
Oh... No way to pay
So... I'll take the fall

In the wide open
I can see everything I need

But better to crawl
And not to fall
Better to feign that all you want
Is solitude
Sane, but then again
Better to fail
Then not at all

Let's just say
That I'm ashamed
Let me fall into it all
You'll just wait until the end
And make me pay for it again
