Track Name: Open Heart Surgery
This is it, no more time
I may not wake up again
Though I've lived a full life
I'm not ready for the end

Ooh, I'm scared
Ooh, I'm scared

Fit the mask, breathe the gas
Think of all I have loved
Say a prayer just in case
Someone reaches for me from above

Ooh, I'm scared
Ooh, I'm scared

Cut the skin, break the bone
Open up, anybody home
Replace part of me, Open Heart Surgery
Stop the bleeding, stop the bleeding, stop the bleeding, stop the bleeding, stop the bleeding, oh

Family, so worried
I'd only survive in their memories
I'll show them yet, I'm alive
Don't you see
Track Name: Blind
She stares off into the night
And feels the darkness' weight
Filled with only self hate
And so alone
She reaches for the pills
Measures her life's worth
Rues the accident of her birth
Turns off her telephone

Blind, Blind, to the friends she would leave behind
Blind, Blind, how fear it warps the mind
Blind, Blind, she tries to leave that fear behind

Depression's black cloud
Has thunder so loud
It can drown logic out
And burn like hellfire
Heart removed surgically
Reassemble piece by piece
Understanding is the key
Don't let hope expire

Blind, Blind, to the friends she would leave behind
Blind, Blind, how fear it warps the mind
Blind, Blind, she tries to leave that fear behind

We carry our loads because we have to
Track Name: Nothing
You are like the Earth
I am like humanity
You'll live on without me
My poison and complacency

And we know
I dulled your glow
And laid you low
I wish it wasn't so

Give me serenity to live with which I cannot change
And the courage to change the things I can
Lord, the wisdom to know which is which
I won't fight you as you slip from my hands, oh no

In that moment, lights were low
And my fingers graced the notches of your spine
As you lay there, kissed by moonlight
Falling on your breast, supine
You were everything, I was nothing
And we spoke only with our eyes
You were inexorable, even as we moved as one
I knew it would be the last time, no longer mine

You were everything, I was nothing, and we spoke only with our eyes
Track Name: Snapshots
Remember the bar we sat in
With the neon sign on the wall
That said sleep is the baby mama of death
I remember thinking to myself
Maybe that's why you liked it so much
Makes you appreciate each breath

You are like the Earth
I'll take snapshots in my brain
I'll need them to remember
But you won't need to remember me the same

I spoke so casually
And you know I would always lie
And I knew you'd never let me inside
And when you came back from Arizona
I knew my love couldn't fight your wanderlust
And I was only one step on the ride
It's only a matter of time

You are like the Earth
I'll take snapshots in my brain
I'll need them to remember
But you won't need to remember me the same

So it goes

So as for now
I'll soak up each breath
I couldn't really ask for more
Some time in the future
I'll pick up the pieces of me
And life will carry on as before
Track Name: In Ourselves We Trust
Modern society only teaches to persecute
Those without connections that can't reach the fruit
Leaders short term, short change, all lies, no truth
Lining their pockets at the expense of the youth

In ourselves we trust, because nothing else is trustworthy to us

Scrapping over scraps, part time, can't get mine
Can't own a home like my parents did, we live in a different time
So apathetic, easy to keep in line
Our future's aborted, victims of organised crime

In ourselves we trust, because nothing else is trustworthy to us
Track Name: Mood Manipulator
Android man, product of my programming
Day to day, doesn't mean anything

So take my skin, take my bone
Wrapped in you, I am home

Mood manipulator, make me feel
Bend my strings, make me real

So alone, yet ever so connected
Beautiful sounds that link us are humanity reflected

So take my skin, take my bone
Wrapped in you, I am home

Mood manipulator, make me feel
Bend my strings, make me real
Track Name: Implode In Slow Motion
Lost yourself again, at the bottom of a can
Wasted and complacent, another dream slips away
I'm tired of standing here, just holding out my hand
Your eyes will just glaze over, and you'll lose another day

Cos I don't wanna have to watch you implode in slow motion
I don't wanna have to watch you drink away all you have that's good
I don't want to watch any more, even though I should

Always disconnected, hide in your hollow heart
The only time you're sober, is hungover in your bed
Every time your friends reach out, you just tear us apart
I'm starting to think by now, there's nothing left to be said

Cos I don't wanna have to watch you implode in slow motion
I don't wanna have to watch you drink away all you have that's good
I don't want to watch any more, even though I should

Just keep on telling myself to walk away
You know I should
Track Name: Stress
I guess you could say that I'm doing okay
Just living my life from day to day
Oh give me some good old lobotomy
It doesn't matter anyway

I am fine
Honestly
It's only stress
Work sets you free

I guess you could say that everything is going to plan
But nothing ever comes for free
I'm just waiting 'til I've finished my time
In a contract signed in infancy

I am fine
Honestly
It's only stress
Work sets you free
Track Name: Good Intentions
Incoming

I've got good intentions for you

Ah
