Track Name: Crux
Crux [Heckeler/Meeks]

It starts long before it begins
The inner drive to win
A motivating spark
Deeper than the skin

Flesh and blood propel us on
Action and outcome
It is only a hallmark
Deeper than the atom

There is no strength
Without resistance


CH:
Sometimes you fall
Sometimes you break

Hang on as long as you can
As long as it takes
As long as you plan


Mental into physical
Emotional flaws
When the spirit aches
Overcoming the wall

Life is just an endless hurtle
Test of our skill
Origins of our mistakes
Forced against our will

There is no gain
Without persistence


CH:
Sometimes you fall
Sometimes you break

Hang on as long as you can
As long as it takes
As long as you plan




You finish long after it ends
Success is in hand
It's really the start
Pure adrenaline

Space and time keep us strong
Deeper than our wrongs
Reflecting on our part
Pushing us along


CH:
Sometimes you fall
Sometimes you break

Hang on as long as you can
As long as it takes
As long as you plan
Track Name: Trickle Down
Trickle Down [Heckeler]

Your apathy trickles down on me
Like distant rain to a drought stricken plain
Your kindness trickles down on me
Profanity's sense of irony

CH:
Feel it roll down your face
You might even recognize the taste

Your apathy trickles down on me
We kneel as equals in the eyes of the lord
But when we leave I get a forced smile
You a hug from the priest at the door

CH

Your sympathy trickles down on me
Toiling for food and enslaved for shelter
Despite your murky generosity
I'm not getting any wealthier
Track Name: A Lot Can Happen In 6000 Years
A lot can happen in 6,000 years [Heckeler]

A day is an eternity
Waiting for truth to come to me

The incredible design
Infinite time to a primitive mind

CH:
6000 years
Seems rather abrupt
6000 years
Isn't nearly enough

Handful of days
Fistful of fight
6000 years
To get the story right


It's in today I live
It's in yesterday we are captive

A complicated design
Simplified for a primitive mind

CH

The meek inherit the earth
Our bank accounts determine our worth

When mice eat their young
Our rat race motives come undone

CH

[We have lost our way]
In 6,000 years
[A lot can happen]
In 6,000 years
[We have gone astray]
In 6,000 years
[We have grown callous]
In 6,000 years
Track Name: Rare Earth
Rare Earth [Heckeler]

How delicate am I
Who clings to an average star
No matter the distance I seek
it will never be that far

Gravity pulls me close
Momentum pushes you away
Life spins out of control
by forces that will not stay

CH:
From death there is always rebirth
I dare not tread on the rare earth


Guilt keeps me close
Malice drives you away
Truth spinning out of control
by something I could not say

CH:
From death there is always rebirth
I dare not tread on the rare earth
Track Name: Prop
Prop (Heckeler)

You can’t go home
But you can’t stay here
Last call
To cry in your beer

Stuck on stupid
Since the lights went out
Oblivious to why
And what it’s all about

CH:
So Stop
And listen
It’s built to be uneven

Just put a matchbook
Under the leg
Prop it up
For one more day




Alone
In a crowded room
All their eyes
fixed on you

Nothing to do
But stare straight down
The glass is dry
Like the world is round

CH:
So Stop
And listen
It’s built to be uneven

Just put a matchbook
Under the leg
Prop it up
For one more day
Track Name: Risk Outweighs Reward
Risk Outweighs Reward [Heckeler]

Dig down deep
Pull the Veil aside
On which you rely

Come clean
Seeking honesty
Vulnerability

Don't believe
What you fear is not always
as it seems

Time to free
Your shackled mind
Phantom fantasies

CH:
Risk
Outweighs reward
Stop keeping score
Been through that before

Out of the night
Feeling safe inside
Where you always hide

Guns and knives
Tattoos and piercing eyes
On which you rely

CH

Being numb
Feelings on the outside
Unsynthesized

Living gruesome
Lottery and sluts
Mindless thoughts

CH:
[Until]
You're cornered
Rifling through a drawer
Looking for just one more
Track Name: Maximum
Maximum [Heckeler]

There is no compromise
Don't you dare ask me why
Let me remove that splinter from your eye
That you might better see

CH:
Shut up and listen
Sit your ass down, be submissive
Shut up and listen


Push it to the max
No reason to hold anything back
Check your tongue and shut your trap
That you might better hear

CH
Track Name: Wrong Side
Wrong Side [Heckeler]

The wrong side of sympathy
The wrong side of charity
The wrong side of generosity
The wrong side of humanity

CH:
We're on the wrong side of history
the right side of duplicity
We're on the wrong side of history
wrong side of decency

We're on the wrong side of history
the right side of hypocrisy
We're on the wrong side of history
wrong side of certainty


The wrong side of equality
The wrong side of sincerity
The wrong side of honesty
The wrong side of integrity


CH

CH:
We're on the wrong side of history
the right side of calamity
We're on the wrong side of history
the wrong side of civility

We're on the wrong side of history
the right side of treachery
We're on the wrong side of history
the wrong side of fidelity
