What’s the time? The time is now To feast upon your sacred cow Everyday a blind eye turned There’s nothing to see here One more Saigon moment To piss it all away To the table the fable Is brought and bought and then it’s sold Ashes thrown into the air Where it falls nobody cares Black and white, an absence of gray In every word that you say One more Saigon moment To piss it all away To the table the fable Is brought and bought and then it’s sold Over and over again Over and over again Over and over again

Of all the things that I have done Nothing could compare to this Nothing seems familiar anymore In one motion lost and found There you are above all things Quietly I find my place Of all the highs that I have reached Everything looks up to this Nothing seems familiar anymore In one motion lost and found There you are above all things Quietly I find my place Of all the things that I have done There you are above all things Mother please Can you see what I see now What makes me so proud There you are above all things Quietly I find my place Of all the things that I have done There you are above all things In one motion lost and found In one motion lost and found In one motion lost and found In one motion lost and found

Hands untied Unity via satellite Living lies Coincide with a heavy hand A faceless affliction high To silence the drone Better the devil you know Than the devil you don’t You don’t know Come alive Deep inside your catacombs Fill the hole with something new Something unknown A faceless affliction high To silence the drone Better the devil you know Than the devil you don’t You don’t know We come alive We come alive We come alive A faceless affliction high To silence the drone Better the devil you know Than the devil you don’t You don’t know Come alive Come alive Come alive Come alive We come alive

Like Castles 04:33
Mingle at the ghost town parade Find it hard to just walk away Try to hide away from the sun - to no avail Beating down on your back until you feel Alive Like castles in the air The wind’s just right to take me there Gravity, my home Slow and steady wins the rat race Finish with a hand grenade Moving on and on until we find the end Living like it’s your last night Alive Like castles in the air The wind’s just right to take me there Gravity, my home Like castles in the air The wind’s just right to take me there Gravity, my home Moving on Moving on and on Moving on Moving on and on

The Riot Act 05:06
Recollect the taste of your own medicine Your last day in the sun is here Reveal the closet griever I am my brother’s keeper Married to the secrecy A glorified lip reader Superstitions are fed The riot act is read Caution is thrown to the wind Darken my door again Present it as a godsend Deep end free fall Oblivion and a line in the sand Sleeping soundly in the lap of the gods Reveal the closet griever I am my brother’s keeper Married to the secrecy A glorified lip reader Superstitions are fed The riot act is read Caution is thrown to the wind Darken my door again Present it as a godsend Deep end free fall

Crash Test 06:03
When the skeptic is haunted By a ghost of a chance Put your eyes to the road And make other plans Drawing the curtains to shine a light On something real It will tell you what you need to hear Crash test in progress Constantly yearning Never learning a thing Red letter days Few and far between The silent and the dead A still tongue keeps a wise head Will you find your way Across this burning bridge Crash test in progress Trapped behind the wheel Someone is coming The engine is running You know just what to do
