Track Name: Wipe Away the Fingerprints
I see you pushing your way to the front of the crowd to see what you can get your hands on
self centered and focused as you leave your waste behind
no affect on you directly so you chose to ignore the problem
the circumstances change and now you cannot predict the outcome

pushing the envelope just to see what you can get away with.

but when the smoke stack turns around…and the soot falls on the ground below your own two feet
and it leaves your street in shambles
when the impact is all around and the angry mob comes to town to protest everything
you’ve been hiding in your scandals

there won’t be anywhere to run…no where to go
but you already know

not to worry…I’ll clean up after you.
not to worry…we’ll clean up after you
not to worry, we’ll clean up after you
someone will have to come in behind and
mend all the broken hearts
sweep up every shattered part
then wipe away the fingerprints and every shred of evidence
to mend all the broken hearts
and sweep up every shattered part
then wipe away the fingerprints and every shred of evidence!
Track Name: No-to-Sing
Nobody asked me to abandon my convictions but it’s something worth considering
we could stand to relax just a little and let a few decent people in
When self esteem or lack thereof gets in the way of a pretty good thing
then I wish and I hope and I pray I find the confidence to come back around again.

we’ve been misled into thinking there is something so much greater in store for us all
that’s why you like to color outside the lines….so you don’t blend in
and hope that I’m noticing
You hope that I’m noticing

Somebody asked me what I thought about their project, I answered in my own way
they didn’t like the feedback I gave, so they plotted their revenge that day

we’ve been misled into thinking there is something so much greater in store for us all
that’s why you like to color outside the lines….
so you don’t blend in
and you’ll stand out
in a crowded room
of fools who all act just like you

I hope that you’re noticing!
Track Name: Funeral Selfie
I never cared that much about popular opinion, and I don’t plan on starting right now
you can take that shit…stack it up by the side of the dumpster
cuz I know there’s too much to fit inside

I feel like I’m surrounded by a bunch of bearded assholes clenching smart phones and sounding off.
My biggest fear is that I’m cut from the same cloth, but I’m hoping I’m not

I’m hoping that I’m not

There’s always influential people trying to shake things up and you can jump on board if you want
From one trend on to the next one until it burns out, or just until it’s not cool anymore

you have 20/20 vision but your wearing glasses and tangled in a vintage scarf
your moral fiber isn’t half as strong as those words tattooed across your arm!

You saw the ad, you’re susceptible to fads now you’ll fit in for at least another year.
Diets and fashion and music without passion, there’s nothing genuine around here!

I never cared that much about popular opinion
I never cared that much about it at all

We’re drowning in a need for acceptance
we’re swimming like were braindead adolescents
accountable for nothing, everything is just a joke
where’s my camera app? I’ll snap a selfie at your funeral!
Track Name: A Brand New Genesis
two days before you didn’t know what to do about the crime
10 seconds ago you still didn’t know if there was enough time
and now you’re feeling fine!
and now you’re feeling fine!

It’s all in your head
even when you’re seeing red
panic is widespread
this is your deathbed!

No matter where you get your information from there’s always something lost
and if you seek out other explanations is the trouble worth the cost?
even if you lose yourself?

ahhhhhh
There’s a brand new genesis on the horizon
There’s a brand new genesis on the horizon

Today someone lit your fuse and you blew up like a bomb
tomorrow I’ll wonder if you have the strength to carry on
because you’re flying blind!
yeah you’re still flying blind!
Track Name: Violence Extinguishing Violence
Try not to lose your mind
Sitting in traffic all the time
For the 9 to 5 grind…like the rest of the world
 
I can make peace with original sin
And I can befriend the demons within
 
I know I’m losing my mind
Depraved, evil, sublime
I’m balancing on a line…that I might fall off
 
I can make peace with original sin
and I can befriend the demons within
 
violence extinguishing violence …inside of my head
trade a thought for an action or stifle it if you can.
 
I’m biting my tongue for the time
It’s stirring up feelings inside
The passiveness is a lie…and aggression is born
 
I cannot stop something without an end…
And I won’t feel guilty for when I descend
 
violence extinguishing violence …inside of my head
trade a thought for an action or stifle it if you can
violence extinguishing violence …inside of my head
trade a thought for an action and hope no one ends up dead.
