Track Name: Ignorance Is a Disease
Ignorance is a Disease (Heckeler)

It’s all to be despised
No need to use your mind
Give yourself something to hide behind

It all must be repressed
No need to do your best
Do nothing, give yourself a rest


You know
You ought to know
Just how low
You can go


It’s all so confusing
No need to reflect
Runaway before your thoughts connect

It’s all more or less
No need to confess
Give yourself some time to regress


You know
You ought to know
Just how low
You can go

You’ve shown
You haven’t grown
You’ve become
The afflicted one
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 often 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 often rebirth
I dare not tread on the rare earth
Track Name: Promise (Ben Howard cover)
Promise (Ben Howard)

And meet me there, bundles of flowers,
We wait through the hours of cold
Winter shall howl at the walls,
Tearing down doors of time.

Shelter as we go...

And promise me this:
You’ll wait for me only,
Scared of the lonely arms.

Surface, far below these words

And maybe, just maybe I’ll come home

Who am I, darling to you?
Who am I?
Gonna tell you stories of mine
Who am I?

Who am I, darling for you?
Who am I?
Gonna be a burden in time, lonely
Who am I, to you?

Who am I, darling for you?
Who am I?
Going to be a burden

Who am I, darling to you?
Who am I?

I come alone here
I come alone here
Track Name: Confined
Confined [Heckeler]


It's private time
Conflicted inside my head

Bounce around, feedback
Illuminating infrared


Ch:

Get out
While you can
Improbable
Assassin

Get out
While you can
Casual
Triggerman


The game's afoot
The heroes are all dead

Skulls abound, flashback
Incidental bloodshed
Track Name: Abnormality
[instrumental]
Track Name: Derp
Derp [Heckeler]

You makity make a lot of chirp chirp chirp
Stop being such a damn jerk jerk jerk

Now get your ass back to work work work
Shaking your epileptic twerk twerk twerk

Derpity Derp

Wipe away that stupid smirk smirk smirk
You're just an oversized twerp twerp twerp

That piss beer you drink is derp derp derp
Gives you vomit scented burp burp burp

Derpity Derp

Responsibility you shirk shirk shirk
Now get your ass back to work work work

Derpity Derp
Track Name: Assturdroid
[instrumental]
Track Name: Mister Vixen
Mister Vixen [Heckeler]


Who are you kidding?
What are you hiding?
Dressing up the outside
To keep your insides fighting

Keep your insides fighting


CH1:

Mister Vixen
I presume
You bring out the worse in you

Mister Vixen
Living gloom
It doesn't end until it's through


That illness you feel
The aching you seek
Awakens the past
Only to get knocked off your feet

Get Knocked off your feet


CH2:

Mister Vixen
I presume
How can someone be so screwed?

Mister Vixen
Living gloom
It doesn't end until it's through
Track Name: Mastering Mediocrity
Mastering Mediocrity [Heckeler]

On the rim
On the outside
Looking in

When so-so
Is good enough
for the win

Push to spin
From the blindside
Looking in

When okay
Is adequate
for the win


CH:

Mediocrity Triumphs Again
Mediocrity For The Win


Don't feel grim
On the inside
Looking in

When alright
Is everything
needed to win

Imagine
Feel bright-eyed
Looking thin

Be okay
With being phony
for the win
Track Name: Ordinary
Ordinary [Heckeler]

There's nothing special about me
As basic as the sun is hot
My heart comfortably cold
My mind plain in thought

No important place to be
No particular place to go
My life's a loose trajectory
Driven by its own ebb and flow


CH:

I have no reason
to be welcome

I'm just an ordinary man

There are no pearls
in my wisdom

I'm just an ordinary man


There's no top at the bottom


There's no prize for ordinary
No second to last ovation
No heros in the fold
No fourth place celebration

Harmless as a poison berry
Deadly as the common cold
Sadness is the truth I carry
Reality I cannot hold


CH:

I have no cure
for the symptom

Such an ordinary man

I am the void
in the boredom

Such an ordinary man


There's no escape from the bottom
Track Name: Diffused
[instrumental]
