Track Name: Golden Boy
Hey
You
Go
So I can fade to blue
Knees
Weak
Try
But sleep don't come cheap

She
Calls
Moon
And the starships fall
Eyes
Blur
Sky
Turns to embers

Can I be your golden boy
Can I be your golden boy
Can I be your golden boy
Can I be

Hey
You
Go
So I can fade to blue
Knees
Weak
Try
But sleep don't come cheap

She
Calls
Moon
And the starships fall
Eyes
Blur
Sky
Burns

Burns, burns, burns, burns, burns, burns
Track Name: Money and Fame
Choking on the same cliches
Words that don’t mean anything
Too mediocre for money and fame
My mark‘s a stain

I won't be a martyr yet
Strong caffeine and deep regrets
Too mediocre for money and fame
My mark‘s a stain

We'll be the flames that rise
To burn the paper planes at night
He said
The sun will blind you anyway
We'll be the flames that rise
To burn the paper planes at night
He said

I am unoriginal
Carved from cheap defectives molds
Born too late to notice my name
My mark's a stain

Fed up with complacent cries
Terrified and paralyzed
Born too late to notice my name
My mark's a stain

We'll be the flames that rise
To burn the paper planes at night
He said
The sun will blind you anyway
We'll be the flames that rise
To burn the paper planes at night
He said

And when you lose your mind
It’s only just in time
Bored to tears with no one to blame
My mark's a stain

See kaleidoscope designs
Pinned right here behind my eyes
Bored to tears with no one to blame
My mark's a stain

We'll be the flames that rise
To burn the paper planes at night
He said
The sun will blind you anyway
We'll be the flames that rise
To burn the paper planes at night
He said
Track Name: Antidote
Dancing in the mud
Climbing up the walls
Running through the streets

Jumping off the rocks
Swinging from the trees
Bruised and bloody knees

Now my hands are raw
And my legs are weak
Falling from the clouds
Sinking underneath

Gonna run away
Gotta run away
Looking for our youth

The hands of time
Around our throat
Weigh you down
Try not to choke

The hands of time
Around our throat
Your innocence
The antidote

Time, time, around our throat
Your soul the antidote
Track Name: Unglued
Head is spinning in circles it never stops
Sabotaging my thoughts
Scratching at the ceiling with fingernails
Bloody stomach in knots

It's like a cancer now
Eating my insides out
I'm desperate to find my muse
But I can't even find myself

I come undone, I come unglued
There's nothing left, nothing to prove
Track Name: Nothing to Declare
All the green ones sitting underneath the sun
And all the yellow with nowhere to run
Come out and play forget the rules
But I can't stay they're only fools
These stars and constellations
A consolation prize

Green line nothing to declare
She finds me standing there
Sedated
And faded
I'm jaded now
Green line nothing to declare

The candles flicker shadows dancing in the dark
While silkworms spin their web on winter's bark
We piss in foam and TV screens
Surrounded by these death machines
The hounds of hell draw blood where
Frightened men walk home

Green line nothing to declare
She finds me standing there
Sedated
And faded
I'm jaded now
Green line nothing to declare

All the green ones sitting underneath the sun
And all the yellow with nowhere to run

Green line nothing to declare
She finds me standing there
Sedated
And faded
I'm jaded now
Green line nothing to declare
Track Name: Deep End
You jump into the deep end
But I'm still swimming in the shallows
I built your holy castle
In the shadow of my gallows

I will wait for you my dear
I will wait for you right here

This pill is hard to swallow
Keep choking down your bitter truth
Throw down a rope to save me
Pull at this thread until it’s loose

I will wait for you my dear
I will wait for you right here

My halo's buried in the ground
They tell me I'm not fit to wear your crown
There’s nothing lost that can’t be found
I’m ready to trade my halo for your crown now

I will wait for you my dear
I will wait for you right here
Track Name: Hostages
Walking like a zombie
Broken necks around me
Blinded by the LED
Never gonna break free

Something like hostages
Fused to our appendages
Starving for oxygen
It’s exhausting

Chasing a hit of that dopamine
This addictions a different breed
Going deaf from all my screams

Sick of all the drama
Sick of all the gossip
Fabricate existence
Just another gotcha

Chasing a hit of that dopamine
This addictions a different breed
Going deaf from all my screams

Walking like a zombie
Broken necks around me
Draining my battery
Never gonna break
