Track Name: Standing In Line
It’s all by design
Standing in line
Consumes my time
Vindicates my crimes


CH:
You! Sit! Stay!
Now stay standing in line

What are we waiting for anyway?
Quiet! while standing in line

Come tomorrow, come what may
Just plan on standing in line

Shackles and imposition thrown away
Unless you're still standing in line


You’re not far behind
One slip and you’re mine
Look ahead, look resigned
Nevermind your state of mind

CH:


Attention Shoppers:

It’s time to find
Something to buy
You didn’t think you could
Just stand in line?!
Track Name: Lucky Buyer
Control
That's all you need to know
We own the valve
to the life saving flow

Despair
It's not like we care
If allowed
We would charge you for air

Today must be your
lucky day
We're offering life
on layaway
All you need
is a way to pay

Thirsty
Some people believe
No one should profit
From the frail and weak

Liberty
It's your right to be free
You can always quit
or surrender to greed

Today must be your
lucky day
We're offering life
on layaway
All you need
is a way to pay
Track Name: Half Off
Out of the blue
It comes to you
To see you through
Try something new


CH:

Draw them in
Make the entry soft
Start by taking it
Half off


While there you can
Offer them more
If they don't buy
Don't show them the door


CH:

Draw them in
and if they scoff
Try taking
the other half off
Track Name: Buyer Beware
Dings and scratches
Line your face
Beneath a layer
of polishing paste

Under the hood
Rusty belts
Leaking oil
And nothing else


I take you for a ride
Kick your tires
Check your wipers
Test your fluids
Pay the piper
Buyer Beware
Buyer Better Beware


After a week
Your beauty fades
Spots and peeling
Beneath the glaze

Hesitation
Broken belts
Frustration
And nothing else


I take you for a ride
Kick your tires
Check your wipers
Test your fluids
Pay the piper
Buyer Beware
Buyer Better Beware
Track Name: Return Policy
After a night on the town
Plunged into a Ketamine dream
Faint violent memories
Pushing pulling twisting haunting
Subjugates her from within


Oh the humanity
Lord please hear me
What's your return policy?


She arrived at my office
Crying shaking sweating praying
Looking for her freedom
Searching for absolution


Oh the humanity
Atonement won't save me
There is no return policy
Track Name: Agent of Disorder [Bonus]
From the foundation
My home is torn from me
My neighbors have it worse

Three children crushed
Air forced from their lungs
Suffocating to death

CH1:
Do not doubt
the Creator
Do not fear
the Teacher

Into the arms of
your Destroyer
Choose the agent
of Disorder

Do not doubt
The Creator
Do not fear
Your Shepherd

Into the arms of
your Destroyer
Choose the agent
of Disorder


In the rubble
I see a cross and candle
It brings me deep comfort

He's with me always
He's the tornado's fury
Seeking infamy and demanding praise


CH2:
Do not doubt
the Creator
Do not fear
the Teacher

Into the arms of
your Destroyer
Choose the agent
of Disorder

Do not doubt
The Creator
Do not fear
Your Shepherd

Into the arms of
your Destroyer
Choose the agent
of Disorder


END:
Do not doubt
your Savior
Do not fear
your Killer

Into the arms of
your Deceiver
Choose the terms of
your Surrender

Do not doubt
The Creator
Do not fear
Your Shepherd

Into the arms of
the Destroyer
Choose your agent
of Disorder
Track Name: Gentlemen of Leisure [Bonus]
Verse 1:

We are the Gentlemen of Leisure
Our lives are consumed by the pressure
of keeping up with ourselves

While our minds remain idle
our cars run full throttle
Our formula poured from
the bottom of the bottle


Chorus 1:

We buy our image from a catalog
We sell our assets on the boardwalk
If it wasn't for the money we spend
the whole world would come to an end


Verse 2:

You might be critical of our dress
our perfect breath and plastic style
But we could frankly care less

In the time it took us
to write these few words
We earned as much in interest
as most countries are worth


Chorus 2:

We buy our image from a catalog
We sell our assets on the boardwalk
If it wasn't for the money we spend
the whole world would come to an end

We fill our pools with children's tears
We furnish our dens in panda veneer
If we didn't support certain things
there would be no atrocities

We build our homes on sacred grounds
We store our wine deep underground
If nothing we did harmed others
Why would we even bother?
Track Name: Tomorrow Today [Bonus]
Whatever you say dear
Just keep in mind
the end is near

The beginning
was not the fresh start we had hoped
The illusion of control


CH:
Tomorrow arrives today
In unexpected ways
the end is here


Details left unsaid
When looking ahead
in your rearview mirror

Things never-to-be
Thoughts left unspoken
Heartless emotion


CH:
Tomorrow arrives today
In unexpected ways
the end is here
