Track Name: Icono
I don’t mind the mental grind
Of this human sacrifice
Death to all with peace of mind
‘Cause they’re only gonna find in time

That they’re wrong
As they follow along we can’t help but regress
And it’s gone
As they follow along down a path of regret

I know
This will lead us to our graves
Diggin’ ourselves up
‘Cause we missed a little light

I know
This will lead us to our graves
Diggin’ ourselves up
‘Cause we missed a little…

I don’t want to stabilize
Lazy weakened stagnant minds
Crush beliefs that they hold tight
‘Cause they’re only gonna find in time

That they’re wrong
As they follow along we can’t help but regress
And it’s gone
As they follow along down a path of regret

I know
This will lead us to our graves
Diggin’ ourselves up
‘Cause we missed a little light

I know
This will lead us to our graves
Diggin’ ourselves up
‘Cause we missed a little…

I know
This will lead us to our graves…
Track Name: Take
These sewn up lips
With stitching drawn so tight
Create a taste
That remains chambered inside

We’ve tried everything to dilute the poison
But we are starting to believe

This will take
A level of torture that we can’t take
The rusted chains keep us in the cave
But we will take
Whatever of this we can take

Through finished seams
We’re finding ways to pry
An opening
Exhausting weakened advice

We’ve tried everything to dilute the poison
But we are starting to believe

This will take
A level of torture that we can’t take
The rusted chains keep us in the cave
But we will take
Whatever of this we can take

This will take
A level of torture that we can’t take
The rusted chains keep us in the cave
But we will take
Whatever of this we can…
Track Name: Connecting Dots
We are the children of progress
It’s not our fault that you’re battling the flames
Of a question you ignited
Growing more complicated by the day

This is something we seek
It is something we need
It is something we desire solely

This is something we seek
It is something we need
It is something for which we plead

Time for an explanation
We’ve waited far too long now
Connecting the dots we pretend
We’re clever

We are the product of a novice
We aren’t alarmed by the winding path we pave
But say the word and we’ll follow
Otherwise we’re walking the other way

This is something we seek
It is something we need
It is something we desire solely

This is something we seek
It is something we need
It is something for which we plead

Time for an explanation
We’ve waited far too long now
Connecting the dots we pretend
Though you think it’s fair somehow
We’ve worked far too hard to pretend
We’re clever

Leaving traces underground
Leaving prints upon the leaves
Leaving traces in our bones
Well I cannot wait to bury these

Leaving traces underground
Leaving prints upon the leaves
Leaving traces in our bones
Well I cannot wait to bury these

Time for an explanation
We’ve waited far too long now
Connecting the dots proves nothing
Though you think it’s fair somehow
We’ve worked far too hard to pretend
We’re clever…
Track Name: Tell Me
How did this manage to come back to me?
I saw it leave, saw it embrace defeat
Took on the water that swallowed the brim
I was a child just drowning

Sometimes the cure it resides at our feet
But somehow we cannot pinpoint the disease…
Sometimes the strands have trouble annealing
But somehow we cannot see the meaning…
(Tell me if we’ve gone too far)
(Tell me if we’ve gone too far)

Tell me if we’ve gone too far
I’m not saying this will stop when hearing your controlled thoughts
Tell me if we’ve gone too far
I’m not saying this will stop when hearing your controlled thoughts
Tell Me

Tell me if we’ve gone too far
I’m not saying this will stop when hearing your controlled thoughts
(Tell me) Tell me if we’ve gone too far
I’m not saying this will stop when hearing your controlled thoughts
I’m not saying things will change when
You finally give up…
Track Name: A Story Left Untold
There is no contemplation
There is no doubt inside of me
One day I will denature, dehumanize, d-e-a-d
With a heart that’s grown beyond the body that’s home

Why won’t you bring me back to life?

There is no second guessing
No hindsight far as I can see
One day disintegrated by the oxygen that I now breathe
With lungs that hold a story left untold

Why won’t you bring me back to life?
Try or enslave us again tonight
Where is my God?
I do not have one

There was a place inside a dream
Where I manipulated words
Made them feel concrete

There was a place inside a dream
Where I manipulated words
Made them feel concrete

Why won’t you bring me back to life?
Try or enslave us again tonight
I’m not gonna break down this time

Why won’t you bring me back to life?
Try or enslave us again tonight
Where is my God?
I do not have one…
