The Deceiver 04:02
When did we all become replicas of a lie They said "Let's feed the world our bullshit and watch our profits soar" Well, I've seen this all over and over again But, it's a little different than before Now you are hooked on something that isn't you No matter where you dig, you're just not breaking through And, if for a second you were something like before Would you deny the deceiver At least, try to ignore Don't waste your breath with apologies No one's gonna care You worked so hard to be like them Yet, you don't compare Now you are hooked on something that isn't you No matter where you dig, you're just not breaking through And, if for a second you were something like before Would you deny the deceiver At least, try to ignore Can you try to ignore?

Copycat 03:59
Now that I have your attention It's beyond your comprehension It was there for the taking You left it open for the breaking Now we are here to fix the perfect And it's always worth it Waking the dead Let's do it again It's not the first But, we're so damn good at making it worse No, it doesn't compare But, see if I care I need the hit Doesn't matter what you think of it Now, don't you feel forgotten We made your face so rotten I'm sorry it doesn't thrill you But, it least it doesn't kill you Waking the dead Let's do it again It's not the first But, we're so damn good at making it worse No, it doesn't compare But, see if I care I need the hit Doesn't matter what you think of it Look at me One more prodigy you wish that you could be I'm inclined to take what you've defined And make it mine Waking the dead Let's do it again It's not the first But, we're so damn good at making it worse No, it doesn't compare But, see if I care I need the hit Tell me what you think of me now

Masquerade 04:29
Slip into your new skin Obsessing your disguise Afraid of your scars You've been around once or twice Markings from your past Cover stains upon your feet Lost in misconception Where hate and heavens meet Wake up You have been lied to This is a masquerade Hands are worn and pale Atrophied and frail But, once behind your mask You tell a different tale Tell me your intentions For the useless interventions Covered in doubt foot in your mouth Or was it just my perception Wake up You have been lied to This is a masquerade If I could be what I wanted I'd be a child's tear You have no safety in numbers Being alone and in fear There's nothing left to fight for Now I can disappear Wake up You have been lied to This is a masquerade

Oh no, something's wrong We are not where we belong What happened to the bright, big future That we heard on the radio Why are we still on the ground Dragging along and fucking around We were busy only dreaming of what We all heard on the radio This is the result of your negligence This is the result of your negligence Keep telling yourself it gets better from here on out This is the result of your negligence You keep putting on faces Like it changes who you were You're still on the inside But, they don't tell you that on the radio Warning: may cause you to think you know what you want I'm so glad I never listen to what they say on the radio This is the result of your negligence This is the result of your negligence Keep telling yourself it gets better from here on out Keep telling yourself it gets better until you start to fall apart Calling all mannequins, show me what you've got Nothing I haven't seen before I guess that's the price we pay For living our lives on the radio Being the best of someone else So original But, can we stop for a second And kill the voice on the radio This is the result of your negligence This is the result of your negligence Keep telling yourself it gets better from here on out Keep telling yourself it gets better until you start to fall apart

Static 04:14
I've become what I hate the most Suck it all dry, now I've become the host Just when I think I'm close enough, I'm a million miles away And I'm happy where I stay I have fallen for lies that I have never believed Taken the bad with the good, and everything in between I've been handed the worst - or so it would seem Now the static is getting to me I can't help but throw this away Now I know that bad piece is here to stay Nothing ever seemed to fit Or maybe something, but I just roll with it Nothing ever seemed to fit And I have turned it all to shit I have fallen for lies that I have never believed Taken the bad with the good, and everything in between I've been handed the worst - or so it would seem Now the static is getting to me Say goodbye to what used to be This will never be the same I have fallen for lies that I have never believed Taken the bad with the good, and everything in between I've been handed the worst - or so it would seem Now the static is getting to me

Obsessions 05:08
This has gone too far out of control But, we've grown accustomed to your façade Covered in plastic, but lacking a soul You've got some nerve thinking that you can play God Safe and sound inside your perfect bubble Barely the king of your domain Can you feel the ground beneath you crumble Time is ticking for your fifteen minutes of fame Since when do we find obsessions To be in our best intentions It doesn't matter what you say When the pieces of the whole have all but given up A little bit is allowed to stay But, it's preparing to self-destruct Since when do we find obsessions To be in our best intentions You'll never learn This is what you earned Don't give a shit That's what you get in return Since when do we find obsessions To be in our best intentions

They want us clean-shaved, well-behaved They want us slaves to the music We'll never be what we want to be And it's making me sick We all react to what they're bringing back It's a distraction from the music The more we listen, the more we're fooled The more we forget the gimmick

From Here 04:15
Is this all a dream Is this all a hallucination Can you make it seem Like there's no sign of devastation Where do we go from here Don't let it disappear Kill the distance, am I aware This existence of hope is Fairly and instance that can't compare But, my resistance will still be there Is this all a dream Is this all a hallucination Can you make it seem Like there's no sign of devastation Where do we go from here Don't let it disappear Dare I say this as if you care I still don't feel the same And that's not fair It's a price I've paid Though I'm repaired Bits and pieces will still be there Dare I say this as if you care I'll never feel the same, but I'm aware Even if I run and get nowhere I'm still better off without you there Is this all a dream Is this all a hallucination Can you make it seem Like there's no sign of devastation Tell me what I have to do Is there room for me and you

Storm clouds make there way The second the smoke clears I see the horizon standing vertical It's exactly how I feared Time well wasted, I must say Sure as hell wouldn't have it any other way And to all the people who succeeded In bringing me down I've got just one thing left to say This is my last confession Censored for your protection I want to make amends And do it all again If I had the chance I wouldn't change it for the world This is my last confession Censored for your protection I want to make amends And do it all again I wish I could do it all again

Enemy 04:23
You like to think that I have given up I've never seen you try You like to think that I'm running away Well So long, farewell, goodbye Well, I've had enough I'm calling your bluff And I'll raise you everything That you have grown to love I see through the mask I don't think you'll last With your so-called honesty Or the lack thereof I can't be this enemy you hoped I'd become I can't fill the void to make you feel more welcome The monster I'm afraid to be just might overcome And I think I am ready for whatever may come
