Track Name: Forward
No control! No parade!
I never got the facts, I couldn’t wait
A frantic meltdown, a cavalcade
No use to destroy what’s never made
Ibuprofen, got the memo?

The words I spit across the wall,
they don’t need to be read just yet
A riot outside my bedroom window,
the protest was in my head

Fixed your car, ma’am,
here’s your keys!
I left my dignity underneath the seat
Take my eyes and watch the scene
Now take my lungs and try to breathe

No control! No parade!
Can't destroy what's never made
Did you get the facts? I couldn’t wait

I can’t pretend I don’t have a choice
I’m stuck behind enemy noise
The words were spoken but the lies were sold
to the new republic of the young and old

No control! No parade!
You can’t destroy what was never made
Did you get the facts? I couldn’t wait
I couldn’t wait, no, I couldn't wait

I couldn't wait! I couldn't wait!
I couldn't wait! No! I couldn't wait! (x8)
Track Name: Jimmy's Got A Gun
Poor Jimmy had a gun to his head
He wanted the beating to end
What if he took his sadness
and let it out on all of his friends?

Run! Run!
Jimmy has a gun!
Run! Run!
Jimmy has a gun!
Run! Run!
Jimmy wants to have some fun!

Poor Jimmy had a gun to his head
He wanted the bleeding to end
What if he took his madness
and let it out on all of his pets?

Run! Run!
Jimmy has a gun!
Run! Run!
Jimmy has a gun!
Run! Run!
Jimmy wants to have some fun!

Why can’t you see
you’re hurting me?
Why can’t you see?
You’re gonna die!

Poor Jimmy had a… (x3)
Poor Jimmy had a gun to his head!
Let's have some fun!
Track Name: Dead Like Me
We flirt like strangers at the site of a plane crash
You take my name and I bury you in it
Bury you in it!
So tilt your head back
Let the smoke bring back
those memories of what you used to become
The whole world turns numb…

I think hard about the changes
we could’ve made
I think of all the lives
we could’ve saved
We’re not brave
We're not brave
We’re not that brave

I remember when you used to read me songs
of exploding balloons and sweating dogs
like the ones you left dead
on our front lawn
You told me those last words:
the worst thing about life
is that you can only die once

Even ghosts could live better than us
The whole world’s against us
We are left with blood in our veins
and it turns to dust
Awaken me with your touch
Track Name: The Forest
You can't escape the forest
The trees will consume your faith
You're lost in a world that will never accept your change

When will you turn
water into wine for me?
Stand back, I'll fight
for the hope of hospitality
When will you learn
this is not a game to me?
Think back to what you said
Think of all irrationality

The walls scream
but their expressions stay the same,
caught within a picture frame (x2)

Turn back to see there's no hope left
Keep your eyes on the road and think back to what you said

You can't escape the forest
The trees will consume your faith
You're lost in a world that will never accept your change

You can't escape the forest (x5)
Track Name: The Snake Of Eden
Crawling through the grass
Staring down and stalk your prey
Making us fight each other
Making us change our ways

Playing mind games with my head,
tearing it to many shreds
Sneak your way into my heart,
shatter it to many parts

You need my venom to go on
You need my poison to get by

One kiss with her poison lips
She will sabotage our minds
One stroke of her crimson lips
She will wreck us with her lustful eyes

The Snake of Eden! (x4)

Slither up my neck, whisper in my ear, and say:
I need your venom to go on
Slither up my neck, whisper in my ear, and say:
I need your poison to get by

Playing mind games with my brain,
turning it to reckless flames
Sneak your way past my eyes,
break me down until I cry

You need my venom to go on
You need my poison to get by

I'll drop my venom and leave you be (x4)
Track Name: From Green To Red
He swings around
and punches the light
in the ceiling fan
He doesn't realize
the pints of blood
pouring from his hand

The glass and the darkness
fall upon his shoulders
This isn't the kind of work
he does sober

Only the green in his eyes
can light the room
He fumbles through the black corridor
Searching for the comforting edge
of the TV screen
he knows is right beside the door

While she's outside smearing her makeup,
he's inside smashing lights
She borrows his car for the evening
Her other man borrows her ass for the night

Up his veins
and out of the cuts of his hands
One motion
His vision starts to blur
His eyes turn from green to...
Red like his car
Red like her dress
Red like his blood
Red like her breath
Track Name: Reverse
I feel sorry for myself
I think nothing of my health
You say I'm such a recluse;
you're a recluse too
Stop feeding me your bullshit
Do you even have a clue?

No more burning lies
No more rabid eyes
No more hopeless frays
No more drowning days

I'm just a simple man
trying to touch solid ground
I've spent half of my life
just looking around
I want the atmosphere
to wrap around my neck
so I can feel the skin
hold me until I choke to death

Stepped in a mound of quicksand
My arm is last to sink
You know you wished this upon me,
with only sand to drink

No more hypocrisy
No more foolish bravery
No more going under
No more selfless mother

Stepped in front of a train,
hoping it'll charge right through me
With blood flowing through His veins,
why doesn't He just shoot me down?
Down, down, down,
without a sound
Down, down, down,
underground

There's such selfish behavior
and I am my only saviour
Cast out beneath the bridge
What's left to settle in?
I follow my head and not my heart
Trailing blood will tear me apart
I'll live through these final days,
down this ghost of a road that I have made
And I am my only saviour, and I am my only...
And I am my only saviour, and I am my only...

I'm just a simple man
trying to touch solid ground
I've spent half of my life
just looking around
I want the atmosphere
to wrap around my neck
so I can feel the skin
hold me until I choke to death
