intro/breathe in, breath out (3x) now stop/listen to your heartbeat fading/verse 1/stay calm for now, breathe deeply close your eyes/take time to save you entrapped mind/this life is yours to give or yours to forfeit/take your best shot tonight let me see you try to live/chorus/when you come up for air i swear you don’t see me/when you look me in the eyes the colors wash away/so worship all your kings while i pull your strings/and breathe in and breathe out and know that i won’t let you fade/verse 2/grab hold of something real and hold on tight/don’t fear the evil shadows of the night/can you feel your heartbeat growing weak/it longs for a break, you made a mistake/it longs for a break but you’re not a mistake/it longs for a break, you made a mistake/it longs for a break but you’re not a mistake tonight/chorus
Track Name: Far-off Places
verse 1/we got telephones to communicate/machine guns to anialate /the ones we don’t wanna talk to/we need two cars just to get by/and in our mansions hide and try/to be content with our lives/throwing parties with our friends/get hammered and do it again /we’ve tabooed the term taboo/chorus/so tell me/what do you see /when you look across the ocean /and dream of far-off places (2x)/verse 2/in a place across the blue /families are torn in two/but not because they cannot get along/war and famine, daily threats/they’re much braver than us i bet/they don’t want fame or much respect but i digress/no one is truly ignorant but everyone is hesitant /to look ‘em in the eye and say i see you/chorus
Track Name: Gateway
verse 1/i crossed mountains and rivers/smiled at strangers/all to land before your feet/this place is haunting /fear goes by silence/the punishment remains unchanged/take me to oceans/lead me through cities/forget my face and name/i wrote my will out/but scribbled your name out/you’ve taken enough /out of me and my mind/chorus/me and my mind fight me and my sins/why should i be nice to all of these sinners/we’re all one flesh here don’t get your hopes up/perfection is a state of mind, the gateway to insanity hey hey/now i’m leaving, now you’re stealing quiet looks at me/but habits haunt you as you turn away/as you panic, as you plea i’m left to wander on/at 16, 17, 18 now i cannot entertain your longings darling/verse 3/holed up, cut off, stuck up, uptight, runnin’ on fumes from a smokey room/sleeping, eating, waiting, crying, sleeping again sounds good i guess (2x)/tonight/bridge/hey darling la la la la la la la (4x)/hey darling, find a ride, go around the ballroom, then go home/show off, stick out, show the world, show ‘em what you’ve become tonight/chorus

Track Name: Monotone Repetitive Redundancy (MRR)
i’m sitting alone, no one answers their phones/at home at the bar, how did i get so far/no one knows my name, but they’re not to blame/i offer to dance, and you take a chance/with a worn out soul with a heart for a brain/maybe if i’m lucky, you won’t be the same/i just want you to stay/chorus 1/i’m feeling lonesome, so i think i’ll go/our time is done, so i’ll hit the road/i know you’re not gone yet, and neither am i/but it’s just me, why would you even try/verse 2/salvation is free, but it’s not easy/we try to get rich, stay healthy and fit/i own two cars, but i’m not that far/from the american dream, or so it seems/what about you, you seem uptight/that’s kinda like me, and that’s downright/terrifying, how it seems we could possibly be together/chorus 1/chorus 2/so many people saying so many things/and every night, one always rings/in my head, in my heart, and on my chattering teeth/you didn’t mean to steal me, but you’re still a thief to me/oh you’re still my thief/bridge/cause when i go home/everyone asks are you still alone/and i smile and say, i’m ok, i’m ok, i just smile and i’m ok/ they see right through me, and i wish they didn’t/chorus 1/chorus 2
