Track Name: Set It All On Fire
First a lick upon your fingers,
sweet and subtle singing sting.
Like a kiss so soft delivered;
revel in the penalty
Let the flames your life surrender.
Salvation's eternity.

Burning, I just feel like burning
everything I've hated,
burn it to the ground
and trample the ashes.
Pity, you look so fine and pretty,
and I feel smart and witty.
Not that it really matters;
we're all dust in the end.

One day, I'll build a pyre of bones and
set it all on fire.

Oh no! A flaming
sea inferno.
I'll bathe in the flames
and I'll purify-
purify all of my weakness.
I'll burn it all out of me.
Run my hands
all over your body.
We'll lie in the glow
of the embers, bereft
of all our sorrow,
our tongues interlocking.

One day, I'll build a pyre of bones and
set it all on fire.
Track Name: Destroy Your Enemies
“Forgive your enemies;
you’ll be completely free,
and find your inner peace.”
That’s what they say to me.
I think I disagree
with that philosophy.
Mine’s so much more beastly.

I guess two wrongs will never make a right.
So I’ll do three or four just out of spite.
Cause I will not go down without a

fighting all my silly demons
throughout all the changing seasons.

Let’s make the bastards scream.
Coat them in gasoline.
Fire them into the streets-
air red and shimmering.
Find my tranquility,
in instability.
It’s oh so beastly.

Take this advice from me:
Destroy your enemies.
You’ll find your inner peace,
and be completely free.
I think you will agree
with my philosophy.
its so very easy.

I guess two wrongs will never make a right.
So I’ll do three or four just out of spite.
Cause I will not go down without a

fighting all my silly demons
throughout all the changing seasons.
Beat myself up for no reason.
Bleeding all the life out of my soul
Track Name: St. Coleridge
The evening paints the skyline red;
the ocean's dead and gray.
The city streets are crumbling,
beneath the flood today.

And sun will spark the fire,
and the fire will fan the flame,
and the flames are rising up,
up inside me every day,
and if you know what is best,
what is best for everyone,
every man, woman, and child,
you will all run far away.

This place will steal your soul away.
Take it apart day by day.
'Cuz I know,
I know:
This ain't paradise.

I know a place where we can go.
I've seen it in my dreams.
The spires pierce the golden clouds.
The woods lay lush and green.
And so twice five miles around
of the sweet and fertile ground,
where the gardens bright and filled
with the cool, seductive rills.
I will swim the sacred seas,
cross the burning plains I'll roam.
I will do most anything,
so I can call this place my home.

Will build a life here.
We will survive.
We will love our children
and watch them thrive,
'cuz this is paradise.
Track Name: Get Out Of My Head
I can't take it anymore,
I just can't take it anymore.

Oh, get out of my head.

I am not the enemy,
I've never been the enemy.

Oh, get out of my head.

Just because you happen to be
in a position above me
doesn't mean to get to treat me
any way you feel is fitting.

Oh, get out of my head.
Track Name: You're Right
A hundred thousand pologies from me, sir.
You're clearly superior to me, sir.
Take your supercility, and your false civility
and shove it where the sun will never shine.

I know what you think inside your
speckled little mind,
and all I say is

you're right!

Hard enough to make it day by day, sir,
without your dumbass getting in the way, sir.
I can just barely maintain
something even close to sane,
and you still say that I'm the one to blame?

I know what you think inside your
speckled little mind,
and all I say is

you're right!
Track Name: The Ballad Of Gary Christie
The sun sleeps, but I'm awake before the city.
She sleeping fitfully. I don't blame her.

Oh Gary Christie.

The sun she rise blood red above the
city
skyline is punctured by our punctured homes.

Oh Gary Christie.

We play in rubbled street; we don't need pity
from you or anyone.
We need a home.

Oh Gary Christie.
Track Name: All Of Us Wake In The Dark
All of us we wake in the dark and we know that one day they will take it too far and wipe us all off of the face of the earth.

One day they will take the fall, and I'll be there through it all, and noone else will take their side.

I miss my wife and my kids but they were taken away, ripped away from me. I will do what needs to be done and I will kill them all.

I miss my wife.
