Track Name: Get Clean
Rotting, from the inside, and the outside spoiled
ragged rotten just the same. Cry for a remedy, 
you want to be saved, your own enemy,
still swatting at ghosts, cursing your own name.
Looking through you now into the the real you,
spoiled ragged rotten still the same.
And just when I let go, you say you want to get clean.
But you'll never, never, never, ever…
Get clean
Track Name: No Love
No love, no love lost
I need you like I need all my flesh torn from bone
No love, no love lost
Forget my name, forget my love
No love
Track Name: Store Bought Cross
I watched your open hand become a running mouth,
You think you're better now than everyone in doubt
On your store bought cross
These nails can't hold the weight of your ego
On your store bought cross
No amount of money, no amount of power,
can make you better than them or better than me,
built an empire from preying on the weak,
and we pretend that we don't see...
You're no better than the rest of us.
Track Name: False Passenger
I was feeling fine, despite the weight I carried in
the past, like a new man...I just got caught up on
my failures, so focused on the walls that I built
and refused to walk through. Took a little time,
and made peace with the rest of what's left,
I'm the same man, there's no shame in that...
You unload all your troubles on me, I saved
you thousands of dollars on therapy, this isn't
even as bad as life gets and I'm not your faithful
loyal pet. I got sandpaper to wipe your tears,
Kleenex for your bleeding eyes... Sometimes
I feel so low and I just want someone to listen,
but all of my friends are dead or grown into
something I hate. I'm not here to tell you what
to do, in fact I'm not really here at all. Failure...
With no one to talk to, no one to turn to,
no one to talk to except this ghost beside you.
Track Name: Relentless
How relentless the past fucks the present,
young and reckless, we missed it-
And woke up old, and woke
Up in a cold sweat, pulled from machines,
cut the bandages, life on a waiting list,
to live blind, with no memory of youth
or how it felt on the inside.
I'm fine, all is fine, no really, just fine.
Track Name: Emotional Vampire
Had me believing I was wrong, lost all those years and almost lost my mind,
ask me to change and you stay the same
The more I'd push the more you'd pull away
You're not giving enough
I'm not getting enough
You said you'd give me your blood
You're not holding your end of the bargain up
I opened up, you turned to stone, I've found more comfort in the cold alone,
You say we're in this together, but it's kind of hard when you can't keep your shit together
You're not giving enough
I'm not getting enough
You said you'd give me your blood
You're not holding your end of the bargain up
If I fall in love, I'm dragging you down with me
And I'll sleep fine at night knowing that...
That all this time you had it wrong, and all this time you had me wrong,
and all this time you had us wrong, and all this time you had it
Track Name: Dark Matter
No future, no ambition
Put out like fire, afraid to grow
Dark matter taking shape over light, over me
Lost my way, can't shake my past,
Unjustified, obstructed by
Dark matter taking shape over light, over me... 
Track Name: Wound
Not enough warm blood in this world to convince me,
to feel a single emotion other than hate for other than me
You came in the room like an open wound looking to bleed,
desperate for something more than a companion you bled onto me
I wanted nothing, nothing from you, you opened up your wound...
Your dead soul is killing your living skin, to darken the feeling and deepen the meaning you dig the knife in,
There's always so many reasons to let go, but what's keeping you close is what's cutting you up
I wanted nothing, nothing from you, you opened up your wound...
How could you cut so, how could you cut so deep? how could you cut so, how could you cut so deep?
I wanted nothing, nothing from you, you opened up your wound
I came inside
Track Name: Phantom Pain
Not everyone can tell when they fell. They're in denial and they think they're still wild
Feeling it now, if it's real, then how?
So Ill prepared for the end, far too eager to move,
you'll never become a legend if you refuse to quit, but it's only phantom pain,
and once rid of, leave that body behind and take the soul from the inside
Feeling it now, if it's real, then how?
But there's only so much pain you can hide,
before the weight of your pride collapses you from the inside,
and I know within this skin you're gone... (I can't recall)
The way the others are is so distant to me
Feeling it now, if it's real, then how?
But there's only so much pain you can hide,
before the weight of your pride collapses you from the inside,
And I know within this skin you're gone, but you're afraid to move on
(I can't recall) I still feel so wild
Track Name: DFC
I don't need any more friends
Don't try and tell me we're friends
I got enough real friends
Last I remember I don't have time for hands that steal from the mouths I feed
So just bite off someone else
I don't need any more friends
I got enough fake friends
I'm still collecting the knives from all of my dead friends...
Bite off someone else
Track Name: Vacant/No Vacancy
Became a ghost in your own town, and everything is different now,
looking for a place to call your own but every door is boarded closed
No one's home, no one's home...
It's vacant but no vacancy
No one to love, no one to draw up some blood, if you're looking for your friends,
you're going to have to dig them up
Became a ghost in your own town, and everything is better now
The needle and the fever both have gone, I think it's time for you to move on
No one's home
