Track Name: Cynicism
Cynicism

Could you both be right?
Can you all be wrong?
You're so sure, you're so sure, you're so fucking sure
Division is the key, separate you and me
We can dehumanize, demonize, devalue
We're all hypocrites and we just want to hate
It's human nature to make sense of things (sense of things)
I'm so sick of it, there's no empathy, no compassion motherfucker!

There's no validity in the enemy
There's no validity in your enemy
There's no validity in my enemy
There's no validity, no validity.

Admitting you're a human? Then I'd have to care!
I'd have to walk a ways, walk a ways in your shoes
But I can't admit that your thoughts are fair
Cause then I'd have to take a look at myself
I'm not trying to be a Socrates (Socrates),
I'm just telling you what I see (what I see)
I'm not trying to be a Socrates (Socrates)
Can I tell you how I really feel about it?

There's no validity in the enemy
There's no validity in your enemy
There's no validity in my enemy
There's no validity, no validity.

(You're either with us or against us.
Either with us or against us.
Either with us or against us.)

Maybe I'm too empathetic, apathetic.
Track Name: Invisible
Invisible

Something's missing from my spirit,
So I shrink inside myself and dream of nostalgic days,
Times that will never be had again,
I'm haunted by my own mind, there's nothing to relieve this ache.

I used to drown in deep ponds of poison
And now I wallow in my shallow existence,
Full of broken dreams and empty promises,
It's the same as it ever was, void and endless.

Life beats my spirit down, but something inside won't let it die,
Kill me or love me, don't just walk on by
Life beats my spirit down but something inside won't let it die,
Kill me or love me, don't just walk on by.

Can't stand to be another jaded one,
Spiritual death, zombies aren't fiction,
Pain makes us eat each other alive.
I may as well be the king of the cynics,
My caustic words will turn you out,
This is what we've become...

I'd rather be a plant!
Wish I could go down in a rock n roll fashion,
But reality's got me in its grip.
I may not become everything I want to,
But at least I can do this shit.

Life beats my spirit down, but something inside won't let it die,
Kill me or love me, don't just walk on by
Life beats my spirit down but something inside won't let it die,
Kill me or love me, don't just walk on by.

I work a dead end job and I feel useless,
I do my best but I'm still underpaid and undervalued,
I'll be playing music till I die,
Nothing else in this world means as much to me.
Track Name: Pulpit
Pulpit

You think you know the only truth,
You shun the evils of this world
While you turn a blind eye to what you do
Don’t you know they can see?

Feel what you feel, it’s not my place to judge,
But stay away from me with your hypocrisy,
If I want to know “His” grace, I’ll tell you to your face.

You don’t always have to be right,
We are only humans after all!
You’re not divine and there’s no need to pick a fight,
Do us a favor, leave it at your pulpit!

No perspective and your motives repulse me,
I see plain ignorance and negativity!
What happened to the love you often preach about?
Did it fly out the window along with your doubt?

You don’t always have to be right,
We are only humans after all,
You’re not divine and there’s no need to pick a fight,
Do us a favor and leave it at your pulpit!

You say I’m going down (woah)
But will you be around (woah)
You’re not God (woah)
Don’t lay your hands on me (woah)
And when I tell you no (woah)
You just won’t go (woah)
You are a parasite (woah)
Leave it at your pulpit.
Track Name: Oblivion
Oblivion

Succession of days, procession of misery,
I cling to small comforts to ease the pain.
Sometimes a long, dull ache feels worse than a shock,
And this particular ache feels like its lifelong.

Internal, eternal, feelings inspiring guilt,
I guess sanity is a process, I'm not meant to know the deal.
Insanity, insanity, what else is a longing for death?
And if not death, and if not death, maybe oblivion.

No more oblivion.
