Track Name: Submerged
I try to write my mind just shuts down
Tongue tied my mind gets all mixed up
Any thoughts just get distorted
I got no will to make decisions
Got no drive or inspiration
The towns a dead weight that’s dragging me under
Got no drive or inspiration
The towns a dead weight that’s dragging me under

No fight left;pressure pulls me under.pulls me under
No fight left;pressure pulls me under.pulls me under

drowning in this town
the pressure is too much but I can’t swim
No fight left; pressure pulls me under.pulls me under
No fight left; pressure pulls me under.pulls me under

got to break free from these chains
got to stop myself from going under
going under going under
stop myself from going under

I grab a line. I find some strength
Exhale I can breath. I swim for shore
But I’m nowhere near. This never ending sea.

Drown in the street with chains around my mind
I try to swim but it pulls me under
Track Name: Deathcard
What the fuck are we here for?
Have we been dealt the death card?
With both feet firmly on the ladder
We’ve got to, got to kick it harder

Have we been dealt the death card
Have we been dealt the death card
Have we been dealt the death card
Have we been dealt the death card

Do you hear this transmission
Got to break this repetition
Do you hear this transmission
Got to break this repetition

Have we been dealt the death card
Have we been dealt the death card
Have we been dealt the death card
Have we been dealt the death card

Never never.. give up
I try so hard to make things work
Too many battles to brawl yeah
I’m in a war that’s never won.
A war with my myself
A war with my myself

You choose the wars we lose the lives
Your propaganda and filthy lies
Too many dead and there’s no prize
These are things that I despise..

This is our time
This is our time
This is our time
This is our time
Track Name: Close Up
This aint theatre
Get out the shadows
The lights are on so step on up front
The lines you’ll learn
As you go along
The performance you hope will be strong

Its time for your close up
You have to commit
It’s time for your close up
This my friend is it
It’s time for your close up
There’ll be no retakes
It’s time for your close up
Understand the stakes

It doesn’t matter how many watch
It doesn’t matter just what they think
Others involved will bounce off you
Make sure your performance just stays true

It’s time for your close up
Just one last time
It’s time for your close up
While the light still shines
It’s time for your close up
It’s time for your close up
Grab the mantle

This aint theatre this is life
Open the curtains and step out fucking side

(Its) time for your close up
Track Name: Static Motion
When will I see the day when good luck comes my way
So many times I’ve come so close but not today
I stand waiting at the airport when my ship is coming in?
I missed the boat so many times; I want my journey to begin

Always waiting.So frustrating
Static motion. Keeping me here
Always waiting. So frustrating
Static motion. Keeping me here

Drag me down. Drag me down
Gotta get my feet right off the ground
Drag me down. Drag me down
Gotta get my feet right off the ground

When will I see the day when good luck comes my way
So many times I’ve come so close but not today
Setting sail with dreams of getting away from here
From all the worries of my days.. of my days

Always waiting. So frustrating
Static motion. Keeping me here
Always waiting. So frustrating
Static motion. Keeping me here

Drag me down. Drag me down
Gotta get my feet right off the ground
Drag me down. Drag me down
Gotta get my feet right off the ground
