Track Name: The Future
Just when you thought the clouds had parted
When someone better for the job could not be found
Our world is burnt and brokenhearted
A place divided by who can and can't adhere
Our loyal servants have departed
Let's lock our gates and pray they never reappear

This is the future you wanted

Now, I know just what you're thinking
All the money in the world won't save us now
Better hide when they come knocking
They'll leave our bodies lying lifeless on the ground

This is the future you wanted
Sick with our chosen disease
This is the future we wanted
Now we're all living on our knees

Don't despair now that night falls
Light the world with the fires from our homes

So long we've been kept starving
Now it's our to feed
Too long we've gone hungry
Now we're gonna take what we need

I can hear you now
I can feel you now
I can smell you now
I can taste you now
I can hear you now
We can smell you now
We can tell you now
We can see you now

Gonna teach you a lesson, one you'll never forget
Your Bastille is broken. Don't you ever forget.
Winter Palace is fallen. Don't you ever forget.
Gonna teach you this lesson, so you never forget.

That this is the future you wanted
Sick with your chosen disease
This is the future you wanted
Now we're all gon' beg and plead
This is the future we wanted
Sick with our chosen disease
This is the future we wanted
They're gonna make us bleed and scream

This is the future you wanted
This is the future I wanted
This is the future we wanted
This is the future
Track Name: Overload
We've gotta roll
Right out this nowhere town
Hit the streets and watch us run them down
Sprawl isn't home
Waste isn't what we want
Central City gonna take our chance
Gotta grind out
Rip it down the fast track
Cut in with the blank kids
Push the sound
It's time to make them dance
They wanna breathe our dreams
Awaken from this trance
Crash the status
Take our future back

Come together and crack the code
Wetwire interface body/mind is working in time

It's time to ride
This life is typical
We're gonna flood the lines with real crimes
The signal's down
Now they can feel our noise
Find the rails
We'll creep in from behind
Hack the backups
Blade right through the harsh light
Keep it lo-pro
Ghost right past the goons without a fight
They're sleeping on their feet
We're gonna drop this beat
Throw the brights on in the black of night

Data charge static pressure overload
Hexadecimal ICE is gonna torch their mind
Come together and crack the code
Wetwire interface body/mind is working in time

We'll find a way to make the liars pay
Find a way to make the greedy pay
Find a way to make our masters pay

Come together and crack the code
Hexadecimal ICE is gonna torch their mind
Data charge static pressure overload
Wetwire interface body/mind is working in time
Track Name: What You Call Home
Don't fall out of time
Let me control you
Now follow this feeling
When I move, you move
Now show me your game cuz I want to play

Your mind goes to another level when your body rocks along with mine
I think that I can see forever when I look into your eyes

Say, we gotta run so if you need a ride then you just come with us and start a new life
We move so fast they can't catch us
Watch,
when we roll,
when we roll,
we beat the street lights
Not trying to push you
Don't let them tell you what you're s'posed to do
If you need to fly then I'm on your side

My mind goes to another level when your body rocks along with mine
I don't even care you think you're trouble
Just as long as you do your time
Sick of this insane city business
Every night escaping through the telephone
Isn't quite the same though, is it?
Let me help you run away from what you call home

I am on your side
Look into my eyes

My mind goes to another level when your body rocks along with mine
When I look at you I see double
So I close my eyes and put your hand in mine
My mind goes to another level when our bodies touch and move in time
I think that we will be together when I look into your eyes
Track Name: Under Dark
Under dark we run
Waves of leather sine
Short ???
Long forms evading light
Like a splinter in your mind
Weeds, forgotten, grow
The word formed broken slights??
Our sentence up
The end is written on wall we'll never climb

Under dark we run
Strung out across the line
Stealing breaths of all remaining small comforts we may find
Under dark we run
Our dead dreams taking flight
Under dark we know
True hearts are hard to find

I can't hear what you say

Time begins to wind
The dream grids flicker
Thick gets thicker
The imagined manifests before our eyes

Nothing's gonna save you now
Pills won't match the wounds I've found
Dethroned and old
Drunk, left in the cold
Drowning in the poison of your lies

All our hopes are sold
Your vision makes you blind
Legs are broke and your hands are empty and still you don't know why

Under dark we run
Blades have cut the line
Now we find that all we have left is all you've left behind
Under dark we run
Our destination's nigh
Under dark we know
True hearts are hard to find
Track Name: The Lie
Contract is broken
Life in default
You're standing on my next
I'll pay you a visit just so I can let you know that this game is over
And I'll settle up the score
And you'll be lucky if you see the light of day
When I hit the streets and then I start to ride
These things are built t'get in my way so I'm gonna tear them down
It's not for nothing
I turn it all inside out
Fist through the screen
Blade through the dream
You find us face down, bound, and blind
Kneeling, cowered behind
Serving beneath their sign
Only see their reflections and they're shiny and bright
Don't believe your eyes

Don't believe your eyes

No vow they break can???
There is a cage built just our size
They stole the children promised
Turned them into slaves to paradise

No matter where I go
No matter what I do
I'm still so alone
It's hard to see this world without you
Well, these are dark days
There is no other way
When I go, willing, I hope you can say the same
When I jack the dream grids then I feel alive
Everything I find, I'm making it my own so I can bury you
Just one laceration and I can bleed you out
Crash like waves
This could be the end of time

End of my life
End of my time
Let my lifetime
Let a lifetime pass me by

Don't believe the lie

No vow they break can???
There is a cage built just our size
They stole the children promised
Turned them into slaves to paradise

And when did we learn to love the lie?
When did safety and comfort blind us to the war we're fighting for our minds?
When did we learn to love the lie?
When did we wake up late to find that, by sleeping, we sold them all our lives?

When did we learn to love the lie?
When did we learn to love the lie?
When did we learn to love the lie?
Love the lie
Track Name: Run Down
Don't want to die today
Won't let you walk away
I'm all locked up and far from home
Alone again now, always
Had to let you down someday
Gotta let me roll my own way
Better hide your love from me
I'm gonna let you fall

It's fire and guns on the run down
But for the smoke, can't see at all
You're there and gone now for the love that I stole

Don't want your diamond rings
Won't take your vows today
I'm all drugged up and far from home
Alone again now, always
Had to let you down someday
Gotta let me roll my own way
Better hide your love from me
I'm gonna let you fall

It's fire and guns on the run down
But for the smoke, can't see at all
You're there and gone now for the love that I stole
It's fire and guns on the run down
But for the smoke, can't see at all
You're dead and gone now for the lies that I told
Track Name: Chrome Hearts
Left alone they'll find nothing worth burning alive.
I'm alone
Say goodbye to love
And those eyes
I miss them and their lies
Alien I'll say
You'll have known
Any night, any way, I don't mind
Say you know
Say you're willing to fight
I know your cold, chrome heart is a lie
There's another way to save our lives
Fail to notice
I know why
Friends you've known
Where are they tonight?
Yesterday has been bled dry
Sad song sated
Love is a lie
I can't believe you just left me to die
Hope this world passes you by
Sad song 1989
Fails to load
Fails to try
Help to mazes? haunted lie
Tonight you say nothing
Not another word out of you
All dead
What a world gone all too long where the young can idoli???

Stay alive
Come tonight, I will not fall for it
Chrome hearts can't be broken
They are lost in time
Track Name: Razorkids
We got the green light cuz it's high time
Yes, you know it's high time
It's a holy night
O what a holy night
Kult, kult
Killer, killer
Kult, kult
Killer, killer
Bleed thin not ??? make us bleed thin
Thieves in suits
Devil's uniform
Can't find a reason
You've got your system
Cold, black iron prison
We're all just inmates
Actors in this snuff film

When it's cold we find our heart's gone underground
Home sweet home
Uur waist gets thin
Hopes raise up
Your weight comes down
We can't hold
This pressure's just too much to take
I won't let you drop it on us now

This time we'll give it back
Let us inside
Why won't you let us inside?
Return this horror you've shown us
Why won't you let us inside?
We won't buy in when you break all the rules
Goldman meltdown
If it bleeds, we can kill it
We know where you live
Kult, kult
Killer, killer
Kult, kult
Killer, killer

Lights go out
Now we're watching while you sleep
The razorkids tear your innards out so the rats can wear your skin
We have no choice
You make us bend until we break
'Bout time we returned the favor

Bleed for us
Fill a cup
We'll drink you in
You owe us this
Our fatty lamb
Our nourishment
We'll only survive when you die

Lights go out
Now we're watching while you sleep
The razorkids tear your innards out so our rats can wear your skin
We have no choice
Lights go out
Now we're watching while you sleep
The razorkids tear your innards out so our rats can wear your skin
You make us bend until we break
'Bout time we returned the favor
Track Name: Unichapel
On the run
Lock it up
Keep it in the box
We're on the loose now
Gonna have to pay the price
I want to reach you but your doors are close to me
I want to break through
It's total war now

There's a cold wind on the rise
Froze the heart of paradise
Would I still be lost if I believed a single word you said?

Shatter

I want to tear the old world down and build anew up from the ground
Our fickle fates and fortunes fight
The lights go out
????

Hoping frost
Gone dead to rights
We're searching for the signs of life
Our final compromise
Will I be your sole sacrifice?

Let me lie
No
Will you let me die?
No
In this season I will fall
Sleeping, cold
Renewed and thawed
From this failure I shall rise

Rise

Stay awake
Raise the stakes
Push the pace
'Till they break
Stay awake
Raise the stakes
Glass and steel never did our fortress make
Stay awake
Raise the stakes
Push the pace
'Till they break
Stay awake
Raise the stakes
Glass and steel never did our fortress make
You could run hot
Fade away all you like
On the hunt
Stop
Find you out in the dark
Get what I want, when I want, when I want it
Gonna get up
Get up on it
You could run hot
Fade away all you like
On the hunt
Stop
Find you out in the dark
Get what I want, when I want, when I want it
Say my name
All the names you've tarnished

Let me lie
No
Will you let me die?
No
In this season I will fall
Sleeping, cold
Renewed and thawed
From this failure I shall rise
Track Name: Solid State
I've searched so long
High and low
In the end, I've finally found a doorway to you
Saw your ghost
A vision in sparks
Real love
Artificial hearts
Death, defied
But lost? Never
Young and beautiful forever
Solid state
No moving parts
Show me the way into the dark
No fire below
No gods above
We are now two
We shall be one

Come inside
I'll keep you warm
I am the light and fire you've sought since you were born

Signal bleed the eyes
My stomach turns as screen confides
I hoped I'd found our way out
The gleam'll fade? to forms unmade

I want to save your soul
I'm trying to free your mind

The dial spins
Blood red lines
The carbon burn
The silicon mind

Trust in me
I am the truth, the love you feel

No escape
No release
Senses lost
It all goes dark

I will give you more than life
My love, my body ripped away
In my heart you shall survive
The rust of age
The wage of time

Blood and bone turn to steel and chrome

You're eating us alive

Order built out of chaos mine

Please just let me die

Filth and vice now is clean, precise

We are not alone

Mortal time now infinite, divine

Is this all a lie?

No more hurt
No more pain
No more fear
No more age
No more future
No more past
No more violence
No more lies
No more fear
No more cries
No more hate
No more love

Death, defied
We are together
Young and beautiful forever
Solid state
No moving parts
Real love, artificial hearts
No fire below
No gods above
We are not two we are now one
