Track Name: Beggar's Belief
You be the rock, they play the role
They are the pest, you can be control
Out of sight, isn't out of mind
They can't see you, you're impossible to find

Oh its true, beggars believing in you (x2)

Under the thumb, above the law
Feed them stories of all you saw
To the masses, to the few
The others who you can see right through

Oh its true, beggars believing in you (x4)


Oh its true, beggars believing in you (x4)
Track Name: Hourglass
I’ve got a skeleton of secrets
And I’ve got half a head of pain
Yeah, I would sell you all the whispers
But they’d still live inside my brain

I’ve gotta know, why we all gotta go
sometime, sometime
I’ll take my time and be back in a while, you’ll be fine
I know, I know, I know

I’ve borrowed all this time from somewhere
I think the hourglass is cracked
And once I’ve shaken off these demons
I think this lifetime’s gonna last

I’ve gotta know, why we all gotta go
sometime, sometime
I’ll take my time and be back in a while, you’ll be fine
I know, I know, I know

I know, when the day is done
and there’s no more love
and there’s no where for us to crawl back home
when there’s no more love, I’m on my own.

I’ve gotta know, why we all gotta go
sometime, sometime
I’ll take my time and be back in a while, you’ll be fine
I know, I know, I know (x2)
Track Name: Follow the Buzzards
Where do you think you are going?
how will you find your way?
you won't find any street signs
your only choice is to stay
you can try to hide your confusion
you can try to run from despair
you could face the music and dance with me
you'd be foolish to think that I care

Follow the buzzards
they'll guide you home
and if you don't make it
they'll pick off your bones
follow the buzzards
and the vermin will too
they'll find a new way to make
the best of you

They scavenge in circles above you
they won't need a second chance
don't rest your eyes for a moment
they'll tear the flesh from your hands
the birds out here are hungry
they're almost as hungry as you
if dying alone don't appeal
follow them, dine with us too

Follow the buzzards
they'll guide you home
and if you don't make it
they'll pick off your bones
follow the buzzards
and the vermin will too
they'll find a new way to make
the best of you (x2)
Track Name: Soft Sell
Like a well-kept hate, they manifest
Into something great, but I'm not impressed
Just ask the world who looks the best
Withdraw your cash, now place your bets
You got fewer votes, and that means you're less
Manufactured, badly drawn but I digress
Swinging from the ceiling, swinging from your neck
That's not my promise, here's my threat

Sell your soul for the price of fame
Sell your body they'll know your name
Sell your soul for the price of fame
Sell your soul...

This post mortem, like a wrecking ball
Goes from the window - and to the walls
The bigger they are the harder they fall
But we paid the price and we are the whores

Sell your soul for the price of fame
Sell your body they'll know your name
Sell your soul for the price of fame
Sell your soul...

You're just a part of a formula
Two weeks time they'll be bored of ya
You're just a part of a formula
Dissect you like a coroner
Track Name: Meat Hook
Always the victim, always accused
never the punished, always abused

I'll give them something to believe

Lets take some meat off the bone
Can't wait to get you alone
Pushed off your pedestal
And onto the meat hook

Never the liars, always deceived
We all hear your promise, never believed

I'll give them something to believe

Lets take some meat off the bone
Can't wait to get you alone
Pushed off your pedestal
And onto the meat hook

Lets take some meat off the bone
Can't wait to get you alone
Pushed off your pedestal
And onto the meat hook
Track Name: The Chemist
the hair of the dog could ease my pain
heal my burns with fire and flames
so much to lose, so much more to gain
so much more to gain
stitch my wounds with knives and blades
punching walls to numb the pain
stay afloat just to drown again
just to drown again

I'm far from complete
wide awake and starved of sleep
so much more to say
I can't buck and I can't bray

freeze my doubt, chill my bones
keep me safe, but far from home
until i feel comfortable alone
feel comfortable alone

I'm far from complete
wide awake and starved of sleep
so much left to say
I can't buck and I can't bray

show me more than this

I'm far from complete
wide awake and starved of sleep
I'm a pawn to throw away
I can't buck and I can't bray
Track Name: ROSHAMBO
bludgeoned by the thought of you
had you nailed but you turned the screw
left for dead by your prophecy
and betrayed by ecstasy
well versed but read by scars
none the wiser of who you are
the best way to break a heart
is not to finish but just to start

recoil, by virtue
there's no way that I could ever hurt you
you rot me to the core

afraid to repeat mistakes
in hell for heaven's sake
never played the masochist
left bound by more than wrists
unexpected but no surprise
the architect of all my lies
what goes around will come around
it's not enough from what I've found

recoil, by virtue
there's no way that I could ever hurt you
you rot me to the core
you rot me to the core

recoil, by virtue
there's no way that I could ever hurt you
you rot me to the core
you rot me to the core
Track Name: Drip
Hook me to a drip
can’t let another slip
tighten the vice grip on my mind
I’m hitting fever pitch
could never scratch the itch
irritated my whole life

Poison myself, with what I thought was the cure
Show me how to live, without something so pure
Can’t be long now, time is running out
So raise your glass with me, we can drink to our health

Not a drop to waste
if only I could face
the thirst is just the way I think
Habits hard to break
so much more at stake
than the venom that I drink

Poison myself, with what I thought was the cure
Show me how to live, without something so pure
Can’t be long now, time is running out
So raise your glass with me, we can drink to our health
