Track Name: Hell Valley Sky Trees
Lyrics:
Isolated, so long I've lost touch. Nauseated by the thought.

Fair-weather friend in the end, how long can I pretend..
Someday the pieces will mend.

You pegged my insecurities, but you're so naive to fuck with me.

But every promise I have failed to keep, is haunting me. Could you save me?

I just can't see straight. But I hear through my woes. "Hope you enjoy the show."

Maybe I'll turn back time, so I can set things right, and maybe I'll find the words...

Cover your eyes, now! Sever the ties! Open your eyes, now!

You can't claim to understand my worth.
You can't claim to comprehend my words.

I meet these skeletons, and their actions manifest me.
Dressed to the nines, in mistakes that infest me.
Escape the wreck that I've been.

I am the catalyst! I divide! I am so bloodless.

Maybe I'll turn back time, so I can set things right, and maybe I'll find the words to say.
Maybe I'll turn back time, so I can set things right, and maybe I'll save myself.

This is the test of my design.
This is the flaw in my disguise.
This is the test of my design.

Maybe I'll turn back time, so I can set things right, and maybe I'll find the words to say.
Maybe I'll turn back time, for once, I'd get things right, and maybe I'll save myself.

Maybe I'll turn back time, so I can set things right, and maybe I'll find the words to say.
There's something wrong, you're pulling me under, you're dragging me under the ground!

(Cover your eyes, now!) This is the flaw in my disguise. (Sever the ties!) This is the test of my design. (Open your eyes, now!)

(Jason Daggett from Avoid The Void / Reach For The Sky)
Bound by regrets, these nightmares are wounding.
Blood permeates the snow.
Oh, catalyst of division, redeem me.
Or feed me to the wolves.
Track Name: Johnny Topside
Lyrics:
Convictions at the edge of the blade.
Collapsing on the ties that I've made.

Buried in self-contempt.

I brought the party to the gunfight.

A pill once a day keeps my evils at bay.
My pain is self-inflicted, or so they say.

Paranoia is me.
I've devoted my life to collecting stones they've cast at me.

If God is the face of death, then call me a God fearing man.

What lies at the end of the world?

I'm heavy with these existential patterns carved by knives and stencils.
Ink and blood on canvas formed from atrophy inside my fleeting mind.
Why can't I go back to sleep?

The clock is ticking the day away.
Maybe you were right.
Maybe the medicine is useless.
My skin continues aging but my mind's not changing.

Poison. Clear the air from my lungs.

I've never visioned myself as powerless, except in case of malady.
Driven to suffer by catalytic theories of doubt.
Now I can't picture myself as anything but just a ghost of reality.
Now I'm the victim. I'm dying to suspend disbelief.

I'm dying to feel alive.

Maybe you were right.
Maybe the medicine is useless.
My skin continues aging but my mind's not changing.
Now.
Brought the party to the gunfight.
This isn't what it looks like.
I'm suffocating, never changing.

I beg for poise through frenetic noise. Admire the view before I...

By blackened skies and bloodshot eyes, defy myself before I capsize.
Now.
(There's nothing left to say.)
(I'm suffocating.)
So please just leave me alone.
Track Name: Goodbye To Gaia (Cognitive Dissonance)
"The arrogance of man is thinking nature is in our control, and not the other way around."

Don't act surprised
(We are cancer)
Swallow your pride
(We must be the cure)
Weakness aside
(We can't wait here for you.)
Capitalize
(Give us progress.)
Rationalize
(Give us reason.)
Desensitized
Disparage science cause it's too much to take.

Desire,
In spite of consequence.
Bloodlust,
And it's killing you.
Disaster will answer no one.
Wasteland,
But you're praying for rain.
Wasteland,

Let the rapture begin
Wash us away from here
Wash them away,
From here.

Why can't you stand up for restitution.
Apathy sank that ship long ago.
So say goodbye to ideals,
Goodbye to the paragon.

You can't walk the walk with broken knees.
You can't talk the talk with shattered teeth.
You can't survive,
Off of withering land.

How am I supposed to feel,
When my happiness... Dies.
How am I supposed to feel,
When my happiness is laced with guilt?

Oh!
You've got to give it up, give it up!
Oh!
You are no salt of the earth
Oh!
We've got to shake it up, shake it up!
The road to hell is paved in gold.

Anything for anyone but...
Anything for anyone but...
I guess, I guess,
You won't do anything for anyone but you.

You're all so narcissistic.
(So turned on)
By the damage you're causing here.
Oh! You're so careless
But you won't be,
When she's tearing you apart.

The siren.
She bears a cadaverous grin
Soon, Mother nature
Will hold fast for anything,
For anyone but you.

I guess, I guess you will die,
Choking, convulsing.

I sleep in my riverbed, alone.
Under the vale of tears.
Oh!

Your vanity is your virtue.

How am I supposed to feel,
When my happiness is laced with guilt?
Is this what you wanted?
Is this exactly what you counted on?
If I had some faith in man,
I'd say we're all in this together,
But we're not.

Belief won't make things right.
We will be baptized in fire.
Cancer consuming.
Oh, the end of fucking nigh.
So pick a God and pray.
Oh God, we're running out of time.

Oh!
What's so hard to understand?
If you only have one life, one world, one chance to revive.
Wouldn't you bring her back, bring it back

Our mother suffers at our hands.
(I know you won't take the blame for anything).
Turn parasite to medicine.
(I know we could change the course of everything).

Is this what you wanted?
Is this exactly what you counted on?
If I had some faith in man,
I'd say we're all in this together,
But we're not.
Is this what you wanted?
Is this exactly what you need?
Well I hope you're fucking satisfied,
For we've been raped by corporate greed
For too long.

Our mother suffers at our hands.
(I know you won't take the blame for anything)
And we can't wait for you.
(I know we could change the course of everything).

Don't take their world
Away, away from them.
Don't take this away
From us.
Or by sunrise we will be dust.
