Track Name: To be Zero
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
Track Name: Crazy
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
Track Name: Estranged
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
Track Name: Lost
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
Track Name: What it is
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
Track Name: Perfection
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
Track Name: Today is the Day
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
Track Name: Memories
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
Track Name: Hammers
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
Track Name: Samurai
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
Track Name: American Hero
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
Track Name: Feedback
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
Track Name: Drive
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
Track Name: Pressure (Billy Joel cover)
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
Track Name: Time to Go Gently
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
