Track Name: Good Morning Fakeness
I can feel the crawl start inside my head
It's the feeling that I dread
And this baseless gall has got me seeing red
Was this anger born or bred?

When you take the oath and you take the stand
Is your testimony planned?
Will you drown us both if I take your hand?

Good morning fakeness
It's time for your wake up call

And I'm glad to know that you've got my back
Push me face first on the track
And you've finally shown just what it is you lack
Grow some backbone in your back

Will you show some growth when we take a stand
Or just show us the backside of your hand?
Is this all some joke?
Help me understand

Good morning fakeness
It's time for your wake up call
For goodness sakeness
Must you always come up so small?

I've got to tell you something
This is the best thing you could do
Just added motivation
To reach success in spite of you

Will you take the time to notice what is happening?
If you give me time I can show us that we both can win
Raise a glass to toast the man you could have been
Raise a glass up high and drink the karma in

At the chapter close
Looking for my pen
Where the hell's my happy end?
Such a wondrous show
But it's wearing thin
Wipe away that permagrin

Yes it's time you know that your gestures grand
Only come across as planned
Such an awful joke
Such a wasted man

Good morning fakeness
It's time for your wake up call
For goodness sakeness
It's time to wake up
Track Name: Constranged
And I get so tired of how we waste our lives away
So damn uninspired
Lounging round like lemmings while you say
Wait wait wait for it

I feel your vibe - it's crystal clear
Take our pride and disappear
Squash us all inside a box - aerate it
Break our stride - you can watch our spirit die

And I get so mired in this muck of mediocrity
We should all aspire to be something special but we just
Wait wait wait for it

Speak your jive into our ear
Replace our drive with constant fear
When we crawl into your box, we'll be sated
Keep us dry and you'll keep us all in line

Conformed and constranged
Deformed, disengaged

We can try another lie on and hope that it fits better than before

And I get so wired by the endless possibilities
My synapses fire
So don't go telling me to
Wait wait wait for it

I feel so alive when you're here
We should strive to make it clear
When we crawl outside this box we've created
We could fly

Conformed and constranged
Deformed, disengaged
Every single thought of yours meticulously crafted and arranged
Segregated from our souls at such an early age

We can try another lie on and hope that it fits better than before
Track Name: All We Are
It's funny when it comes - the sudden clarity
So thankful for the love you've always given me

All we are and all we'll ever be is grateful
For this love and for this family

I've seen the broken souls that live in misery
So hollow and alone - it's all they've ever seen

They say all we are and all we'll ever be is fated
We're apple's just fallen from the tree

Time is racing forward
I don't want to let this go

Why must it take so long for us to appreciate this?
Why must we all lose something close before we grow?

I wanna take the time to tell you what you mean
You sacrificed it all to help us reach our dream

They say all we are and all we'll ever be is fated
We're apple's just fallen from the tree

Time is racing forward
I don't wanna let it go
I love you more than you'll ever know

Why must we all lose sight of all our inspiration?
Why must we all pay the toll of letting go?

Oh don't go

They say all we are and all we'll ever be is fated
I couldn't ask a better destiny
Track Name: Sudden Fall From Grace
I miss your face
Why won't you call?
Just how much space will fix this all?

And I continue to hope I'll find you waiting at my door
I can't dismiss you and let myself believe that this is all

I miss your smile
Your funny way
You never failed to make my day

And I will give you the time you need to sort it all apart
Just know that I'm waiting with nothing here but love inside my heart

This sudden fall from grace
Has left me lying helpless on the floor
It all seems out of place
Why can't we go back where we were before

So where did you go?

I miss your heart
So pure and true
But most of all
I just miss you

I still believe that we have the choice to love without regret
Don't stop believing - we haven't thrown it all away just yet

This sudden fall from grace
Has left me lying helpless on the floor
It all seems out of place
Why can't we go back where we were before

So where did you go?
Track Name: Corner of the Room
I feel the subtle pull again
The notes are pushing me to document them
A waking dream I put to pen
Lest I awake to find the notes elude me

Yes I always lose myself in a cloud of chord and melody
It's how I allow myself to live in harmony

Another moment of regret
Of life and love and hope of something better
Twelve notes serving as my net
To grasp the endless scale of all that matters

It's here I know just what to say
The words I speak a constant flowing
It's my own musical bidet
Wipe clean the excrement that might be growing

Whenever I get tired of fighting it
I go to the corner of the room
Tickling the twine and ivory
Hello from the corner of the room

I swear this movement keeps me sane
It's vital to my very composition
Reshape this clutter from my brain
And let the music form the resolution

When the wind gets cold and this world grows old
There's a path that I can take to wipe away this ache
When I'm all alone I get on my throne
And begin to procreate with my dear 88

Whenever I get tired of fighting it
I go to the corner of the room
Tickling the twine and ivory
Hello from the corner of the room
Whether high or low I've got to let it flow
From the corner of the room
Welcome to the show
Let me say hello
Track Name: Take This Thread
Take this thread and tie a knot around my head
Take this thread I'm hanging on and cut it instead
Track Name: These Changes
I have no regret
All the blood and sweat is worth it all
I'm standing tall

Another new day is breaking our way
Whether bright or hazy gray

These changes are happening everywhere we turn
This strangeness is all around no matter what we do

I've done all the math and chosen my path
But life won't lay down easily
A turn in the way may lead us astray
Fate will have its say in things

These changes keep happening everywhere we go
This strangeness keeps messing with everything we know

I've seen it a thousand times
These self-defeated minds
Shaken, aching for a sign

This time is all we have
Make every single minute count
Don't stop to hesitate
Or you will never really know how far you can go

And all I'll ever need I hold inside my heart and in my mind
And if I don't succeed, I still have pride in knowing that I tried
Though life is hardly fair to anyone, it's worse to quit and run
It's how we face defeat that makes someone when all is said and done

Another new day is heading our way
I'll accept what it may bring
And all I can say is we'll be okay
In our life, there'll be strife

These changes are happening everywhere we turn
This strangeness is all around, forcing us to learn
Track Name: Final Call
I'm telling you something's wrong with this
And we cannot place it
And we will not face it
Oh no

A well-sharpened edge is up against your throat
There's water in your boat
What more can you say
Go hang yourself - I've left you plenty of rope

I've given you plenty of final mistakes
There'll be no callback today

Put up barricades to block your only road
A self-fulfilling ode
What more can you say
Go hang yourself - I've left you plenty of rope

I've given you plenty of final mistakes
There'll be no callback today
FINAL CALL

Look back on those days
You overplayed your role
The lines aren't all you stole
What more can you take?
You hung yourself and left us plenty of rope

Your role in my life was left on the cutting room floor
Just wasted footage we've all seen so often before
Fall flat on your face just looking for that little more

I've given you plenty of final mistakes
There'll be no callback today
FINAL CALL
