Track Name: Parallels
there was a day when
you were mine
alleged undying love
couldnt be kept inside
but now i know
my body has always lied
a hidden truth concealed
deep inside my mind

and now its all falling apart
not more than a fantasy
it was nothing from the start
and now its all falling apart
forget what has happened here
it was nothing from the start

intrinsically, my heart regrets
the words that came before
spilled out from me, as i lament
telling the truth, when lies could save me now

i could never let this leave my side
my future set in stone
obsession fueled by my old regrets
i couldnt face them
ill never let this go

faded from the lucidity
that kept my ego floored
greed and lust back in full control
unavailing, i can do this no more
Track Name: Cinco de Mayhem
whole worlds hide behind those pale blue colored eyes
lips that tacitly tell me there's little time
pull the car 'round, grab the makeup from the shelf
lord knows we'll give 'em hell

tearing through a city, sleeping unaware
the smell of gasoline, heavy in the air
unapologetic, selfish and quite brash
tonight we take the world back

what i desire
i take for my own
there's no other road
you can't stop me
i won't be brought down

sweat smeared makeup and boots that run up thigh high
never beheld a sight so fitting for the night
the devil and the lord both work in such strange ways
tonight the former gets his way
Track Name: The March
march, little baby
the sun hides away
hides from today
march, little baby
the rain's out today
or so they say

trumpets play tonight
but it's not right
it's not right

march, little baby
the grass is on the green
march, little baby
your family's on the lawn
you must be strong

Track Name: Cliffs On Both Sides
to keep my faith alive
i would shy away from truth
abandoned peace of mind
closed eyes can help renew, renew
a whispered lullaby
i can't stand to lose
to lose
to lose...

there's no stopping this lust for tranquility
[i wont be there to stop your freefall]
she said to reach for the stars
and start anew
[i wont be there to stop your freefall]

the fortune teller spills my future out in rhyme
spread before my eyes, a blueprint in my mind
maps out the floorplan, which hallways guide this life
the design of my demise

Track Name: Trespass
there's a place inside my mind
a place where i can hide
from all of these bad dreams
that haunt my waking life
needles pierce beneath my skin
with a message scribed in black
my intentions across my chest
i can't take them back

this could be an answer
to why things fall apart
this could be the answer

to make it known that i fall and i stumble
could it change, would it make me better?
i know how to keep these things inside
i could tell you how i'd end this story
confess to you from my weighted conscience
of the one thing that i believe
