Track Name: The Collapse
Your promises were lies and forgeries
Now hollowness and vacant memories
Fucked up and upside down
Still lost, I can’t be found
Such an exquisite pain without you
But I can’t help the hopeless
Can’t save what wants to die
Your heart can’t really beat inside

Said you couldn’t be yourself
And now you’re fucking someone else
Bitter, the taste you’ve left in me
Wipe away the tears I’ve cried
Now that you have said goodbye
The clock is ticking toward my end

All I believed
The words which deceived
There’s no relief
On this dead end street
And I can’t remain
In this empty place
Someone hear my screams
Just fix everything
Now I’m running scared
I needed you here
It’s devastating
And I’m collapsing
Track Name: INPUT/dOUbTPUT
I’ve seen the light and it wasn’t great to see
I’m alone and there’s no one else with me
Left for dead not that it mattered anyway
Pretty pointless when you still won’t speak my name
Is it really that fucking complicated?
You can’t be honest with yourself
Didn’t this mean anything?
I can’t imagine that it did
You ripped and tore and stole my life away
White lies, white out over my name

Your INPUT’s become my dOUbTPUT
Your INPUT’s become my dOUbTPUT
Your INPUT’s become my dOUbTPUT
Your INPUT’s become my dOUbTPUT

Erased me from your book
Won’t take a second look
Guess this was meaningless
I never thought it’d come to this

Your INPUT’s become my dOUbTPUT
Your INPUT’s become my dOUbTPUT
Your INPUT’s become my dOUbTPUT
Your INPUT’s become my dOUbTPUT
Track Name: Just Do It
Looks like tonight’s the night
Put up a hell of a fight
No turning back for me anymore
I’ve overcome with a force majeure

I’ll just do it
Yeah, maybe I’ll just do it

I fell in love with leaving this place
I can’t check out without leaving a trace
I’ve got a pen and paper galore
Who knew saying goodbye could be such a chore?
I’ll write a note with the things I can’t say
And when I’m gone they will still remain
I’ll fill it up with naughty and nice
Cover the bases ‘cause I’m not dying twice

I’ll just do it
Maybe I’ll just do it
So I think I’ll just do it
Yeah, I think I’ll just do it

Kiss it goodbye
Leave it behind
It’s not like they’ll cry
So kiss it goodbye

I’m checking out tonight
I only hope that I’ll get it right
Don’t wanna deal with this shit anymore
There’s nothing left that is worth fighting for
Writing a list of the things I won’t miss
There’s gotta be something better than this
And so it’s time, my final refrain
I’d stick around but nothing would change

I’ll just do it
Maybe I’ll just do it
So I think I’ll just do it
Yeah, I think I’ll just do it
Track Name: Slave To The Pain
She crawls into my bed
She lays down next to me
She whispers in my ear
"I'm going to destroy you today"

Takes me into her room
Where she sings her cold refrain
Pulls back and takes a swing
And I'm just a slave to the pain

She tears at my flesh
My soul and my breath
My world, takes the rest
My life, she cares less

Chew it then swallows
My world, it follows
I can't hold on
I'm not all that strong

She'll promise it won't hurt
"It's only temporary"
"Everything's just ran its course"
"What did you expect this to be?"

In disbelief, I question her
"Didn't this mean anything?"
She just sighs and tolls her eyes
And I'm just a slave to the pain

She tears at my flesh
My soul and my breath
My world, takes the rest
My life, she cares less

Chew it then swallows
My world, it follows
I can't hold on
I'm not all that strong

Who's the more sadistic, the master or the slave?
And what's so altruistic about the power that I gave?
Given the inch, she took the mile
Staring at me deep within my soul
Hearing my screams, she only smiled
...she only wants control

She tears at my flesh
My soul and my breath
My world, takes the rest
My life, she cares less

Chew it then swallows
My world, it follows
I can't hold on
I'm not all that strong
Track Name: Excise
Words spoken never stung so much
Death creeping when I felt her touch
And here I thought that it meant something
Baby’s gone and ruined everything

Get her outta my head
Get her outta my head
'fore I succumb and wind up fucking dead
I said
Get her outta my head
Just get her outta my head
or I'll get poisoned by the hate she spreads

God damned me when he gave me her
Some pilot, hates his passengers
Infliction of the deepest pain
Not sure I’ll ever be the same

Get her outta my head
Get her outta my head
'fore I succumb and wind up fucking dead
I said
Get her outta my head
Just get her outta my head
or I'll get poisoned by the hate she spreads

Cruel mistress tried to bleed me dry
Now I’m fighting just to stay alive
Pound of flesh just wasn’t quite enough
I was weak and she likes it rough

Get her outta my head
Get her outta my head
'fore I succumb and wind up fucking dead
I said
Get her outta my head
Just get her outta my head
or I'll get poisoned by the hate she spreads
Track Name: Triumph Over Nothing
I’ve gone to the darkest recesses of my mind, spent days cooped up in here looking for answers to questions I’m still not sure I’ve even asked. I’ve pushed
myself to the brink of madness trying to find a way to help you understand me. Is this thing on? Are you still listening? Am I telling this story to someone who even cares, or is this prose and poetry falling on deaf ears? I’m trying to send you a message. That message is: you broke me. You won. You had your way with me.
Congratulations.

I’ve systematically allowed you to invade me, working your way through my veins like the blood my tired, diseased heart pumps on a momentary basis. I’ve been corrupted by you. Ruined, scarred, impeded upon… imprinted. There is no turning back anymore for me. I will never be the person I once was, all because of your amazing ability to penetrate and pierce my psyche. Are you pleased with yourself? Does this gratify you? Do you feel such accomplishment and pride knowing just how far you have pushed me, nearly to the edge? Nearly to death? Somehow, I have managed to hold on. I’ve made it this far. Maybe this is all a triumph over nothing, I’m not sure yet. I guess I’m still waiting to find out how it ends.
Track Name: A Waking Nightmare
I stumbled, and I failed
I took the longest walk to hell
So wounded and so weak
Got so lost, I’ve forgotten what I seek

And if I fall
you know I’ll get back up
And if I break
you know I’ll piece myself together again
I’ve gone too far to turn around this time


Without my heart, though…
… will I make it?
Track Name: Without My Heart
I stumbled, and I failed
I took the longest walk to hell
So wounded and so weak
Got so lost, I’ve forgotten what I seek

And if I fall
you know I’ll get back up
And if I break
you know I’ll piece myself together again
I’ve gone too far to turn around this time


Without my heart, though…
… will I make it?
Track Name: Cruelty To Animals
You took me home like a pet
And then lost interest in me
I guess I was fun for a little while
But now you can't breathe
So then you tossed me aside
Paid no attention to me
So I bark and you bite
And I know how this is ending

Your techniques to defeat
And mistreat's indiscreet
I'd just like to be on my two feet
For a change
I'd exchange anything for this pain
You triggered inside me
Could you please set me free

Spent me like capital
Destroyed the practical
And now I'm fractional
You're cruel to animals

You kept me locked in my cage
Deprived of food and my drink
All day every day I just plan
My escape from your schemes
And I must take your beatings
But you won't listen to me
Is this the way that you show love
You're so blind that you can't see

Your techniques to defeat
And mistreat's indiscreet
I'd just like to be on my two feet
For a change, I'd exchange anything for this pain
You triggered inside me
Could you please set me free

Spent me like capital
Destroyed the practical
And now I'm fractional
You're cruel to animals
Ignored the rational
Ignite the flammable
Now I'm least valuable
You're cruel to animals
Track Name: Queen Bee
I put up these walls to keep myself safe
You tore them all down and now you won’t go away
I tried to escape, you pulled on my chains
Reminds me of who’s in charge of this place

And I just want to break free
I just want to be me
And I can think of nothing holding me back
… except you

Someone let me out of here
Someone get me out of here
Before I fail and disappear
Someone take me out

I’m trapped in your hive and you’re the queen bee
A drone in your mind, that martyr named me
And I’ve got this plan for liberating
We’ll see if it works, although it might sting

And I just want to break free
I just want to be me

Someone let me out of here
Someone get me out of here
Before I fail and disappear
Someone take me out

Someone let me out of here
Someone get me out of here
Before I fail and disappear
Someone take me out
Track Name: Imperfections
So what if I was not enough
To change your mind?
Feels like I was barely there
And now I’m nowhere at all
I think I can live with all the scars
But the memories of what we became
Have shattered my reflection
And shown my imperfections
And now I risk rejection
From the rest of the whole damned world

And I’ll still get by
Perhaps under darker skies
Yeah, I’ll still go on
The darkness is my new dawn
Track Name: Silent No More
I can’t make heads or tails of anything
Don’t understand the reasons
Behind this choice you’ve made
The picket fence, the house,
The life that could have been
Put every one of us
Into a world of hurt again

When you walked out the door
And you ignored
What’s worth fighting for
Silent no more

How could I begin to know
What you wanted me to be?
If I’d have changed a million things
Would you still have left me
Here
By
Myself
I’m all alone
In our old home
It all turned cold

Walked out the door
And you ignored
What’s worth fighting for
Silent no more
Track Name: One (bonus download-only track)
One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do
Two can be as bad as one
It's the loneliest number since the number one

No is the saddest experience you'll ever know
Yes, it's the saddest experience you'll ever know
`Cause one is the loneliest number that you'll ever do
One is the loneliest number, worse than two

It's just no good anymore since she went away
Now I spend my time just making rhymes of yesterday

One is the loneliest, number one is the loneliest
Number one is the loneliest number that you'll ever do

One is the loneliest, one is the loneliest
One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do

It's just no good anymore since she went away

One is the loneliest, one is the loneliest
One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do
One is the loneliest, one is the loneliest
One is the loneliest number that you'll ever do
