Track Name: Weird Age
(Well you really thought I cared that much, you really thought I cared that much you must be out your mind, aren't ya?) x6

Well I'm saving all the pennies
Saving all the pennies
For all the times
I gave a damn

I keep placing losing bets
Placing losing bets
On a
Winning hand

Isnt it funny all the money
Youll spend on nothing
With a note to self
Saying wait for the second coming

Save up ll the pennies
Save up all the pennies
Til you give a damn

Keep placing losing bets
Keep placing losing bets
On a winning hand

Cause

It's such a weird age
Such a strange time
To be alive

It's such a weird age
Such a strange time
To be alive

Well you really thought I cared that much
You must be out your mind, arent ya?

Time is hard
Currency to make
And that debt
Will never be repaid

So in this day and age
In this economy
You're trying to get me
To invest?

{Well theres a prophet in the scrapyard
right down the street
He's got his bullshit lined up
All nice and neat

He'll sell you what you want
He'll sell me what I want for dirt cheap}x2

Cause it's such a
Weird age
Such a strange time to be alive

x4
Track Name: Heirs
You're the words
Your father spoke
The things your mother
Hoped for

{You've been beating your head
Against the wall
And it's just
Not enough}x2

So when the blood
Is thicker than water
It's time to drown
The Father

Just another heir to the throne
Long live the king

Just another heir to the throne
Long live the king

I've been beating my head
Against the wall
And it's just
Not enough

I've been cutting these hands open
Just to spill some blood

It's what my sister
Hangs on for
The secret on
My fathers tongue

When the blood is thinner
Than water
It's time
To drown the Father

I've been beating my head
Against the wall
And it's just
Not enough

Are we only kings and queens
Or can we
Out last
The Dynasty

or am I

Just the heir to the throne
Long live the king

Just another heir to the throne
Long live the king

Just another heir to the throne
Long live the king

Are we only
Kings and Queens
Or can we
Out Last
The dynasty
Track Name: Temples
Can you
Feel the heat?
Can you
Feel the pressure

Things just
Aren't what they used to be

The world that I knew
Changed so fast
That I can't help but feel
That this wont last

But I cant believe the lies they tell me
Cant believe the lies they tell me
Things just aren't
What they used to be

I can feel the pressure
I can feel the heat
Things just aren't
What they used to be

And it wont stop
Until they tear every last temple down

No it wont stop until they tear every last temple down

Eye for an eye
Tooth for tooth
I can't believe the lies they tell you
Cant believe the lies they tell you

Penny for my thoughts
Word of advice
Is any of this
Worth a fucking dime?

Penny for your thoughts
Word of advice
Is any of this
Worth a fucking dime?

I can't help but feel
That none of this feels real
But it's the same as it ever was
Same as it ever was

Brick by brick
Dust to dust
Same as it ever was
Same as it ever was

Brick by brick
Dust to dust
All that we make
Is made to rust

Brick by brick
Dust to dust
Thy kingdom come
it will be done

Brick by brick
Dust to dust
Why can't we see
That this is dangerous?

And it wont stop
Until we tear every last temple down

No it wont stop,
Until they tear every last temple down

No I can't stop,
Until I tear every last temple down
Track Name: Ritual Knife
I'm so psyched out
I'm so worked up
So upset
So obsessed over nothing

I'm psyched out
I'm not like this
Why can't I keep my cool?

But I can't sunflower
And I'm not surprised
If I were you
I'd be scared to die

But no one is judging
As far as I can see
But you don't know you
Like you know me

Oh

I just need something to do today
Before I cut myself open with a ritual knife
I just need something to do today
I just need something to do

I'm so hung up
so strung out
Why cant I
Just keep my cool?

You're so worked up
You're so sung out
So upset
So obsessed over nothing

You've got a sadness inside you
That makes it so easy
To take advantage
When you're not looking

and the top of the cemetery hill
is such a nice spot
Someday somebody will come here
And you'll be in one of those boxes

Cause I just need something to do today
I just need something to do
I just need something to do today
Before I cut myself open with a ritual knife
Track Name: Gold Mine
This place is a gold mine
Wait til you see it
This place is a gold mine
Wait til you see it

This place used to glisten
I wish you could've seen it
I wish you could've seen it

Every nook and crevice
Every crack and cranny
You should have seen it

Now it feels like retrograde
Since its golden age
I should have seen this

Now it feels like retrograde
Since the iron age
We should have seen it

Now it feels like retrograde
Since the golden age
Why can't we see it
Why can't we see it

Now only time will tell
What happens
What happens
What happens
When you bleed the well

This place is a gold mine
Wait til they see it
This place is a gold mine
This place is a gold mine

This place is a gold mine
Wait til you see it
This place is a gold mine
it's a gold mine
It's a gold mine

We're gonna get
What we deserve
There's little left
There's little left
That we can preserve

They say it's what we get
It's what we deserve
It's all fading away
It's all fading away
And I'm losing my last nerve

They're here and they want whats mine
And they'll take it
And pay no mind

Now only time will tell
What happens
How long we can
How long can we
Bleed the well

This place is a gold mine
Wait til you see it
This place is a gold mine
This place is a gold mine

This place is a gold mine
Wait til you see it
This place is a gold mine

This place was a gold mine
Until they found it
This place is a gold mine
This place is a gold mine

This place was a gold mine
Until they found it

This place was a gold mine
Until I found it
This place was a gold mine
This place was a gold mine

This place was a gold mine
Until we found it
Was a gold mine
It used to shine

This place was a gold mine
Until I found it
This place was a gold mine
This place was a gold mine

This place was a gold mine
Until they found it
This place was a gold mine
This place was a gold mine

It used to shine
Track Name: All Seeing Eye
Where was it then?
Why weren't you paying attention?
I guess we, were both to young to see
The damage that's been done, the damage that's been done

And now it's too late
Now it's too late

Where were you then?
Lost in your own head
During an age, of misinformation
But we were just kids, we were just kids

And now it's too late
Now it's too late

Cause there is nothing you can hide
From an all seeing eye
Try as we might
We can't turn off the limelight now

Do you see it at all
Can you see what's been done
Or have you just gone blind
By the things that made you numb

Cause it's happening again
Why weren't you paying attention?
She was just a kid
Why weren't you just, paying attention?

Now it's too late
The damage has been done
Godamnit she was so young
And it's happening again

Why werent you paying attention?
Why cant you just pay attention?
Now it's too late
Now it's too late

All that you hide
Can be seen with an all seeing eye
Try as you might
We can't turn off the limelight now

Cause now it's too late
Now it's too late
Now it's too late
Now it's too late
Track Name: Amnesiac
Did I read that right?
Will I know when it hits?
I feel this is the end of it all
But it's just to early to make that call
I lost myself
When it slipped my mind
What's come over me?
What's come over me?
It feels out of focus
I feel out of touch
I don't feel this blood that bleeds will ever be enough
Did it slip your mind?
Or did you just lose your self?
What's come over you?
What's come over you?

Chorus:
I feel like you lost it
You missed the point
Missed the point
Missed the point
Missed the point

Verse
What happened to you?
You were so caught up
All that's left is tooth and nail

What happened to you?
We were so caught up
All that's left is tooth and nail

What do you tell yourself
That just slips your mind
I just can't tell
I just can't tell

Yeah you're catching visions, and feeling the fever
And you feel out of touch cause you cut yourself for something cheaper

You missed the mark
You missed the mark
You missed the mark
You missed the mark

Did you just miss the mark
Or did it just slip your mind
What's come over you
What's come over you

And did you just lose the mark
Or did it just slip your mind
What's come over me
What's come over me

Chorus
x4
Track Name: Scarab
I've been so scared to die
So scared to lose you
So afraid to die
So afraid of the tide

And it's only a matter of time
Before the other shoe drops
Will I get another shot
Or does it just end in a box

Will I be born again?
Will I be back soon?
Will I know, when I see you?
Can I come back for you

Why can't I come back for you?
Can I come back for you?

When I am born again,
Born again
Born again
Will I see clearly?

Then I can't sweat the small stuff
I'll be back soon
Keep laying the foreground
That you can come back to

I've beens o scared to die
And it's only a matter of time
Oh it's always a matter of time
So just go ahead, go ahead, go ahead try

Not to sweat the small stuff
There's too much to do, much to do
Much to do

No you can't sweat the small stuff
You'll be back soon
Don't sweat the small stuff
Let it roll off you

We scarabs
We'll get another chance
We get another shot
It doesn't just end in a box

It can't just end in a box

Born again
Born again
Born again
You will see clearly

You will be born again
Born again
Born again
you will see clearly

You will be born again
Born again
Born again
You will see clearly

I will be born again
Born again
Born again
I will see clearly

You will be born again
Born again
Born again
You will see clearly

When I was born again
Born again
Born again

I could see clearly.
