To be Zero 04:36
Red lips kiss as the shadows fall It’s the night that summons and calls Feel the slivers, shake and shiver from the chills in the night Welcome the sin, sweat dripping skin, filthy addictive rite Pre-chorus: Who am I and what have I become? Threads of me untwine and come undone Chorus: To be zero Anti-superhero From utero I am the zero Thirst for pleasure and lust for pain The antidote would be so vain Tears are razors, would it faze her to see me weep Halo and wings, these are the things that are but skin deep Pre-chorus Chorus The entrance in is not the way out Knowing this conclusion leaves me in doubt I am the map, I create the plan But one and one bring back me to zero again Chorus
2.
Crazy 04:48
I am the fire, you are the ice You melt away and I fizzle inside I am the darkness, you are the light Love is blind but we stumble without our sight Pre-chorus: Why can’t we put it all together? Go back to a time when we were forever Chorus: Crazy Girl, my head is ringing from the Hell that we’ve been living in Crazy Coming from two tribes we can't see eye to eye I am the oil, you are the water I pull the trigger and wait for the slaughter I am the black, you are the white Every day is like rolling the dice Pre-chorus: Come on baby, do we have to fight? Remember how we used to make love all night? Chorus Isn’t it about time we put it to bed? Bury the hatchet and leave it for dead Chorus
3.
Estranged 04:26
Baby, we found a way to each other Opened up each other’s eyes We fell in love in an instant A connection we could not deny Sometimes love is so cruel The way she gives and she takes Her icy touch made us fools And we struggled in her wake Pre-chorus: Why don't you love me? Say that you'll love me We are estranged Chorus: Baby you meant everything to me Thought that you’re the only one I'd need Baby watching you walk away from me Now you’re the only one I'll never need The distance grew in between us No matter how hard I tried I couldn't reach you but I did find that picture of you and that guy Sometimes love is so cruel The way she gives and she takes Her icy touch made us fools And we struggled in her wake Pre-chorus Chorus For a moment, I recall the memories Some good some bad, all of them our stories If only I could hold you again but it wouldn't be right I've given too much to crawl back into our bed this time Pre-chorus Chorus
4.
Lost 04:10
Looking for pleasure, all I found was misery A slave to my desires, I am no longer free I cared only for myself and thought of no one else (sometimes that’s the way it is) How much that I have lost, I can no longer tell (but who really gives a shit) Pre-chorus: I was here just a minute before I wasted away my core Can I come back, can I rebound Am I lost or found? Chorus: Everything is wrong, a mess and insane No comfort to know that I'm to blame Ready to take on the world but the world, it took me down Leaving me hollow, echoes of who I was resound I tried to be number one ending as second best (the failure of my success) Living only for today is great if you're oblivious (I could care less what comes next) Pre-chorus Chorus So lost Demons, angels, in my happy Hell Pulling both ways, I can't escape The good, the bad, the ugly I am What's done is done that fact remains Chorus So lost
5.
What it is 04:28
Baby don't be trippin’, you're at it again You know I need that space to be me and rock it, rock it The sky above ain't fallin’, it won't crush your world Venus seems so far away, bring it back girl Pre-chorus: It is what it is but I'm glad it's you Chorus: Over and under with you Up and down and around Time and time again with you It's the best, I confess Take a drive down memory lane to find your way back home It is what it is with you Oh Hell yeah your boys back at it again Guess who that is at your door knockin’, knockin’ Cause I know your stressin’ and need some TLC So I'm headin’ back from Mars to L. O. V. E. Pre-chorus Chorus Sometimes what is wrong is what is right It has to be the day before it falls into night Life is a rollercoaster hold on tight Cuz you're the only one I want on this ride Chorus
6.
Perfection 04:49
You stand before the mirror feeling insecure Your eyes carve away all that betrays A decision is made and you are afraid But there is no gain without the pain Redefine the standard and raise the bar The perfect image pushes you this far Chorus: You want to be the best you can be More human than you get for free A diamond with a flaw is a sin Can't you love the skin you’re in? Perfection You stand before the crowd, loud and proud Fingertips of glass and a tight ass An hourglass figure is what you deliver Now that your fixed will the broken you be missed? Silicone implants and Botox injections It’s your guarantee for zero rejection Chorus Chorus
7.
I woke up this morning knowing what to do I need to be decisive and follow through The time is here, the time is now There is no alternative, I don't know how Pre-chorus: I've got that feeling, nervous, anxious Stick to the plan and stay receded I've got that feeling, so excited Keep it in check for when it's needed Today is the day Chorus: I have fallen away, today Nothing anyone can do or say I've made up my mind to seal our fate I'll bring a new beginning at the end of today It's gonna be a bad day Stepping through checklist, pacing in the room Envisioned all scenarios, prepared for them too The time has come, the time has past Here at ground zero, it's that time at last Pre-chorus Chorus This is on now, no turning back Failure is something that I must reject Complete at all cost, keep it on track The point of no return is where I earn respect There is nowhere to run and hide This is the end before my eyes Chorus
8.
Memories 03:34
How could the Smiling, feelings darken and fall away Apathy and secrecy your way to disengage Lying, cheating why are you so damn greedy Faking, mistaking dreams for reality Pre-chorus: Is it only about you? Remember that I'm here too Is it only about you? Chorus: I have you to thank for the memories Gifts that keep on giving are forever mistakes to me But hey, you wouldn't have it any other way Than to think of only yourself and runaway You are so Confused, failing to force me in your mold Angry and blaming, you are losing control Twisting, turning, stability departs Broken promises, it’s tearing me apart Pre-chorus: Is it always about you? Relationships do take two Is it always about you? Chorus You're an emotional sheet of glass The slightest stress and you shatter and crack Each shard a memory of our past It’s comforting you're next dance won't last But it’s only about you Chorus
9.
Hammers 03:42
The bright lights, it is tonight Who's gonna fight? Bring on the hammers Your name is called, give it your all Then they will fall - Everybody hammers Pre-chorus: Everybody knows what’s going down There is no way to stop it anyhow Chorus: Stop, look, listen, beware Here comes the hammer Tonight we feast on the beast That is defeat - Go on and hammer Strike some fear then they will hear And disappear - Everybody hammers Pre-chorus Chorus The years of sweat, back breaking toil Endless practice, you won’t be foiled The drama! The spectacle! Give it your all! The victory! Take 'em down, you win the crown Silence their sounds - Go drop the hammer! Turn out the lights, you've won tonight You've won the right - The final hammer Pre-chorus Chorus
10.
Samurai 04:40
Here I stand an age old man Face lined with wisdom and strength A passing stranger you wait intently To hear my tale at its length Listen now strange man A warrior skilled in death In the shogun's name to keep the peace Off to war leaving love behind Oh how she cried to see me leave I know she prays for me Chorus: Battle fronts my eyes Not afraid to die Raise the sword high Defense of honor and pride I, samurai A desperate battle we fought for 17 days Victorious we turn for home and make our way Only to find a stealth attack, they burned the village down All the people lie dying on the ground Now I pray for her Chorus
11.
Where's that dude like in the movies Called upon for honor and duty Man of action, hard to kill Mercenary who shoots for thrills Pre-chorus: Violence and force to transcend These are his means to the moral end Chorus: We need a super hero - the end is in sight Can he save our lives tonight before the end of time ignites/before we fail and lose the fight/before we enter end of life American hero - He's the savior of society American hero - He's a danger to society Independent operator Covert action, infiltrator Dis-trusting of all the rest He is the best of the best Pre-chorus: Iron fists to apprehend These are his means to the moral end Chorus Out of control and on a mission A degenerate with tunnel vision Dark and complex an emotional divide He is so conflicted deep inside No one comprehends the pieces at hand Of the puzzle that makes up this man Outcast, withdrawn, isolated He is everything that we've created Chorus
12.
Feedback 04:49
I lack the capacity to understand your notion My mind was molded before the birth of emotion I do not see this as a problem or an obstacle It only makes me ponder your insane spectacle Pre-chorus: You turn me on, but I'm cool as ice No smile or sweat, my evasion is precise Chorus: Feedback, my silence is my attack I confound the most adept and industrious intelligence Intentional anomaly with no equal in existence I cannot be moved and prefer to dwell in shadow Commence your inquisition, you will never know Pre-chorus Chorus My eyes glaze and fade to black Nothing, nothing, nothing will get me to testify No way, no way, no way that you'll get me to lie Pre-chorus Chorus Chorus My eyes glaze and fade to black
13.
Drive 05:24
Pedal to the metal, the engine roars Adrenaline rush that rocks the core The tires break free, smoking and spinning A one track mind that's bent on winning Illegal racing, asphalt battlefield The clock is ticking, there is no time to yield The miles are clocked, the end draws near Accelerate and shift into gear Pre-chorus: The intensity steals away my breath Winning or losing is life or death Chorus: Drive - the struggle to survive The finish line determines who lives and who dies This is why I drive Across the country, strangers start to ride Unknown to each other, truth and lies collide Prisoners and slaves to the road The deadline approaches as the mystery unfolds Pre-chorus Chorus Roadblocks and traps, it’s no accident They have infiltrated the government Abuse their power - abduction and arrest Partners separate, alliances are tested Pre-chorus Chorus

You have to learn to pace yourself Pressure You're just like everybody else Pressure You've only had to run so far So good But you will come to a place Where the only thing you feel Are loaded guns in your face And you'll have to deal with Pressure You used to call me paranoid Pressure But even you can not avoid Pressure You turned the tap dance into your crusade Now here you are with your faith And your Peter Pan advice You have no scars on your face And you cannot handle pressure All grown up and no place to go Psych 1, Psych 2 What do you know? All your life is Channel 13 Sesame Street What does it mean? I'll tell you what it means Pressure Pressure Don't ask for help You're all alone Pressure You'll have to answer To your own Pressure I'm sure you'll have some cosmic rationale But here you are in the ninth Two men out and three men on Nowhere to look but inside Where we all respond to Pressure Pressure All your life is Time magazine I read it too What does it mean? Pressure I'm sure you'll have some cosmic rationale But here you are with your faith And your Peter Pan advice You have no scars on your face And you cannot handle pressure Pressure, pressure One, two, three, four Pressure
15.
It seems our paths have crossed You seem confused and a bit lost I feel the urge to say hello, hello I am drawn to you now where ever you go Pre-chorus: Father is calling for you We can't keep Him waiting, you're overdue Chorus: Hush my dear friend, no need to cry Let go of your fears of all you leave behind I lift you softly into my embrace It's time to go gently away from this place You're in quite the predicament But that is why I have been sent Come, here is my hand, put yours in mine Your eyes ask your question - who am I? Pre-chorus Chorus: Hush my dear friend, no need to cry Let go of your fears of what is on the other side I lift you softly into my embrace It's time to go gently away from this place I have been dispatched, given this task To deliver you home but you still ask Will there be sorrow, will there be pain? Will all the complexity begin to wane? Now that I'm here, down at your side You see who I am, your eyes are open wide Resisting, you beg and plead to stay Knowing that I come to take you away Pre-chorus: Father is angry that you've escaped I hunger to return you, sealing your fate Chorus: Silence my dear friend, it's time to die Your tears can't save you so why even cry I tear out your soul and leave the body to waste It's time to go away to a darker place Silence
