Track Name: Never Enough Running Out of Time
Temporary permanence permeates temperaments
I wonder, is this forever or just a moment?

Give but no take
Lets take a break, please put me on a break
There's no breaks
Just for time's sake
There's no escape

Bear with the pain in your shoulder, keep pushing the boulder up and over
And smile for the camera, and push through the era, and leave me behind in the trial of my errors

Where do you think it went?
The feeling in my soul, the restlessness in my bones
You can't stop the timer, you're getting old

(The stories are vast, no chance to repress them)
My compass is spinning in every direction
(A glimpse from the past, a chance to reflect it)
I've loaned out my time and my brain feels neglected

Vacuous space, stuck in this maze
Give me a taste, time goes to waste
Don't thaw me out, spare me the doubt
My idle lungs, the frozen blood
Throw me in the ice chest

I'm clocking out
Bypass time
Throw me in the ice chest
Track Name: Cutting Off Brain Activity
Blindfold my eyes
Lets pretend this is a lie
Back and forth our bodies sway
Tethered tempting thoughts, vacate my mind

Run away, run away now
The mind holds the poison
We'll pollute within you
Scratch the surface
Itching to be left alone
Lets try and stow it away for now, let's not ruin my day

Please, don't mind me sir
I'm going away
Deceitful mindsets hide the lie

Kid in the clouds, you've gotta fight it
Or maybe you can get by hiding it
You're full of it

Taking my anger out on the living room couch

And the latex makes me think of the favor
Lick the paper, send me away
Stamp the anger, I'm on my way

Now run, go your own way
Get away
I'm done finding mistakes too late

I'm taking my anger out on the living room couch
Lying on my back
Trying to lose track of where I am now without finding out how
I've done the math and the sums don't match

Release expertise
I made the wall
And I will not call
I will not call
Blindfold my eyes let's pretend this is a lie
I'm taking my anger out on the living room couch
Lying on my back
Trying to lose track of where I am now without finding out how
I've done the math and the sums don't match
Track Name: Fine is Never Fine
Regress from all I know
Dragged by the undertow
These feelings won't fight themselves
I wish to be someone else
Forced by the strain
I'll deal with the pain
Opening up has destroyed us again

I just want to breathe again

I'm useless inside my own mind as my brain begins to rot
As if I could be a contender for all the things that I am not
Who would have thought I was wrong about all the thoughts that I thought
I made myself this way

To crash and burn, wait your turn, a hollow shell
The mind that you thought you knew, couldn't you tell
It's gone so get gone from here, and let this rot
The feeling I used to hold, well I forgot

I've left my neck exposed
(And I cannot ask why)
The wolves came for my throat
I fear we'll never know
(I'll bleed until I die)
I fear our hearts can't cope
Ignite beneath the surface
I gave up all my trust and I feel I don't deserve this
This time I'll take the punch
Yeah, I'll take the punch

I'm useless inside my own mind as my brain begins to rot
As if I could be a contender for all the things that I am not
Who would have thought I was wrong about all the thoughts that I thought
I made myself this way
