Track Name: Invocation
Invocation.
Track Name: Scapegoat
-Scapegoat-
Who do I believe? I’m tired of losing sleep- I WANT MORE
It goes over in my head, words frozen, never said- I WANT MORE
I wanna be more than a number, just another name; I wanna be more than your scapegoat, taking the blame
Am I a have or have not? We all want something that we haven’t got- I WANT MORE
When all my effort’s spent, I hope there’s something left to show for it- I WANT MORE
I wanna be more than a number, just another name; I wanna be more than your scapegoat, taking the blame
Yeah, I want something more, something more than this
I want something more, because I’m feeling trapped
Don’t want to be mislead, I don’t want to be ignored
Yeah, I want something more
Don’t know what I’m feeling, but I think you get the meaning- I WANT MORE
I look at you, you look at me, I still don’t who to believe- I WANT MORE
I wanna be more than a number, just another name; I wanna be more than your scapegoat, taking the blame
Yeah, I want something more, something more than this
I want something more, because I’m feeling trapped
Don’t want to be mislead, I don’t want to be ignored
Yeah, I want something more… more… more… more…
No longer your scapegoat, NO LONGER, I’m gone
No longer your scapegoat, NO LONGER, I’m gone
Track Name: Dear Faith
-Dear Faith-
I’ve found nothing in the architecture,
I’ve found nothing in the doctrines or books;
So I’m writing an open letter
To Whom It May Concern:

When I look to the sky above,
I only find myself blinded by the sun
The weather shifts and I’ve given up searching
My dearest faith; you’re dead and rotting

The Seasons come and the seasons go,
And I’m still haunted by ghosts that are old.
So much regret,
So little redemption

My dearest faith, forever lost
This human shell that god forgot
There will be no further post script
When I say goodbye
Track Name: Matrimony
-MATRIMONY-
There’s no denying that you’re married to
The reflection staring back at you
An arrangement you have to accept
Because you’ve got a long time, till death
Do us part
Till death- do us part
Till death- do us part
Till death- it’s you, it’s you
In spite of you

And there’s no hope of divorcing
Until you’re six feet in the grave
You’re married to your waking life
With every breath you take, till death
Do us part
Till death- do us part
Till death- do us part
Till death- it’s you, it’s you
In spite of you
Yeah
Till death- do us part
Till death- do us part
Till death- do us part
Till death, till death, till death, till death
Track Name: Familiar
-Familiar-
Sometimes these crowded streets are empty and lonely
When familiar things don’t feel the same
Sometimes I stumble on your memory
What happened to you?
What happened to you?
There are places I don’t want to remember
And there are places I don’t wanna go
I trip and fall on a memory
What happened to you?
What happened to you?
What happened to you?
What happened to you?

I just want to know; is this feeling permanent?
I wish there was more but there’s nothing left; just memories
The faces I knew, what happened to you? There’s nothing left; just memories
The places I’d go, what happened to you? There’s nothing left; just memories
Those memories
Just memories
The places I’d go, what happened to you? There’s nothing left; just memories
The faces I knew, what happened to you? There’s nothing left; just memories
Track Name: The Devil You Know
-The Devil You Know-
There’s something sinister behind that grin, just beneath the surface and just beneath the skin
There’s always an alibi, that’s hidden in plain sight. You never see it coming, until it’s too late
(speaking in forked tongues)
I got caught looking through you, while you were speaking to me
It ended the conversation, abruptly
The devil that you know, better than the one you don’t
But what happens, when they’re both thy honored father and the bringer of light?
The lord of the flies: the devil in disguise.

Better the devil you know; then the one you don’t
Better the devil you know; then the one you don’t

Speaking in forked tongues

I got caught looking through you, while you were speaking to me
It ended the conversation, abruptly
The devil that you know, better than the one you don’t
But what happens, when they’re both thy honored father and the bringer of light?
The lord of the flies: the devil in disguise.
Track Name: God And Ghosts
-God and Ghosts-
It’s between you, god and ghosts, what you do when you’re alone
And thank god, no one’s telling, because your secrets would leave you exposed
Do you expect a savior? Do you expect to be saved?
Well, there are no happy endings
It’s between you, god and ghosts, the promises you break
And thank god, no one’s watching, because your image would fade away
Peel back the skin, it’s no secret, you’ll find blood, muscle and bone
Peel back the skin, you’ll find secrets, but that’s between you, god and ghosts
Do you expect to be saved? Do you expect to be saved?
Nothing changes nothing and at the end of the day:
There are no happy endings
There are no happy endings
Track Name: Caskets
-Caskets-
They tell me it’s gonna get better
And that everything’s gonna be OK
But the truth of it is, it’s as good as it gets
And we’ve all got one foot in the grave

They say it's gonna get better
But nothing will ever change
'Cuz the truth of it is, when it's all said and done
We are the ones to blame
Still, they tell me it’s gonna get better
And that everything’s gonna be OK
But the truth of it is, it’s as good as it gets
And we’ve all got one foot in the grave
Track Name: Side Show Demon
-Side Show Demon-
Have you found what you were missing?
Have you learned life’s lessons?
Can you ever fill that hole? How deep does it go?
Is it Fire and brimstone or lost and alone?

WE ALREADY KNOW
What you know
WE ALREADY KNOW
That you’re the devil’s own

Yeah
Right!

WE ALREADY KNOW
What you know
WE ALREADY KNOW
That you’re the devil’s own
Yeah…
You’ve got a
LOT TO LEARN
You’ve got a
LOT TO LEARN
You’ve got a
LOT TO LEARN
My son
You’ve got a
LOT TO LEARN
You’ve got a
LOT TO LEARN
You’ve got a
LOT TO LEARN
And you’re on your own

Oh!

You’re on your own
Side show demon
You’re on your own
Side show demon
You’re on your own
