Track Name: Reality
Empathy is dead
Washed away in a sea of fear and dread
Empathy is dead
Remove yourself from the things inside your head
Find a way
Isolate your memory
Find a way
Compassion's not the enemy
Empathy is Dead

If this is your reality
Separate yourself from everything
If this is your reality
Separate yourself entirely
Track Name: Nothing Will Change
Superstition caught my eye
Bringing about this fear to die
A level mind, but a drained repetition
Heavy handed in a daze
It lives in everything you crave
The stolen words that skew an admission
Beating out this thought of loss
A little break to steer my course
I should know actions need my permission
Yet there's nothing to imply
The fact that I don't want to die
I only try to brush that ambition

Are you a defeatist in your own head?
Pushing against everything you dread
Hold it inside, it's no loss of time
Nothing will change

Are you alive
Breathing inside
Aware of your own sense of pride
Know that you're just a reaction
A result of good and bad
All clustered in a moving bag
Of bones, memory
A living contraption
Does your ego let you in
Or shut of every little thing
I should know that my truth is just interaction
These compulsions blind the way
I'll leave it for another day
It's only my own revulsion

Trust and loyalty all turn dust
Confidence in a chance left to rust
Burn a grin, take it all on the chin
It's only me, a old dark impulsion
Track Name: Hate
Told a million times before
Never believe what you heard before
We're all waiting for something terrible
They're going to send us all to hell

This hate that you preach
Is going to break us so violently
This hate that you preach
Is going to make us the enemy

Words unspoken, reverted to lies
Twisted images, misshapen cries
Removing blame from those responsible
Hate harboured only builds a wall
Track Name: SAP
Hold yourself at no price
We all see through different eyes
Can you accept your lack of light?
Or just burn out in a fucking fight
Should you know yourself inside?
Fear all the things you try to hide
Don't try to fight yourself
You'll just burn out your own self doubt

Fallen out of loop
Everything inside my mind
Is a skewed portrait of you
Could I ever compare
The way you hate yourself
Or should I even care?

Bonfires turn my mind out
Out of line with the things we all doubt
Inspirations going to fade
Are these blueprints left out of place?
Let it go, put your blame away
It won't solve the crisis of yesterday
Lost out with the way you perceive
Things you know and things you believe
Track Name: State of Mind
Mainstay, I'll float away
Put myself in a hazy grey
It's all a mess, but I've been blessed
What are we going to say?
Disgruntled cries from a useless mind
A little surprise will pass me blind
Don't even watch, it's all just fine
Drawing a blank on another line

Just one way
Through today
Just one way
Today

It's all just time keeping me unkind
A little rest wouldn't hurt your pride
You need to keep yourself preoccupied
But your realities a state of mind
Track Name: Justify
You're running out of time
Trying to justify
You're running out of mind
Trying to pacify

You want to justify

And then again we're all just flies
Floating around till we're lullaby
Change mentality to cross your line
A little lie you'll be just fine

Slow movements in my head breaking up time as it runs through thread
Track Name: Personality Factory
I don’t care where you’re going
and I don’t care that you’re gone away
‘Cause since I isolated you
I’ve been relishing my days
You taught me that it was okay
To do nothing with my life
To waste my time away
And accept when things aren’t right

You don’t deserve me
You say you understand me
You want to play God
And you think you know the real world
You think you’ve been through some shit
But you don’t know the half of it
You can come back crying
When you find yourself on bathroom walls

If you tell me you’re on my side
Well I'll tell you that you’re not right
I won’t accept it
You’re not fighting the good fight
I hate to say it but you’re wrong
You’ve been worthless all along
Leave before all your moral understanding is gone

Create your own identity
Based on your reality
Create a personality
That isn’t artificial
When all is done we’ve come to know
Where all your aspirations go
You’ve stooped the lowest of the low
You defiled your own temple

You try to observe me
You say you understand me
You want to play God
And you think you know the real world
You think you’ve been through some shit
But you don’t know the half of it
You can come back crying
When you find yourself on bathroom walls

Enjoy your grandiose delusion
All your theories are unproven
There is only one solution
Kill yourself, be forgiven
You try to observe me
You say you understand me
You want to play God

Run yourself an acid bath
And drop the radio
This is your last performance
So please put on a show
Just how much about me
Do you think you really know
Just how much about me
Do you think I let you know
