Track Name: Chaos
I'm riding here shotgun
You're back firing once again
In my hands

Start focusing on the road
And not where were coming from
Which way we'll go

And I'm already half way there
The chaos is on your mind
And I'll follow you in despair
Wherever this road may wind

A fork is within the road
And I'm not sure which way
Which way to go

Keep focusing on me now
And not where we're coming from
Which way we'll go

Into my head, look into my eyes
Inside my heart I am waiting to find
Inside my mind I'm still waiting
Track Name: Say ft. Space Cadet
I heard you say
That I’m everything to you
And then you made
Off with Gitche Manitou

And back you came
Armed with your excuse
And my friends
I’m sorry but I’ll have to refuse

You tasted my flesh and tainted blood
But now you’ve got to speak your mind

Say what you wanna
Say what you wanna say
Not that it ever mattered anyway
Pray for redemption
Hope then to start again
It’s too late

You’ve already fallen from grace

I think I’m going insane, for real
I’m not just saying for the sake of saying it
Where’s the shrink at?
My product comes shrink wrapped
It’s part of the problem
Started from the bottom with the bottom dwellers
Rose up, that instant, forgot them

Fuck them they’re nothing to me now
Not the same as I was some summers down
Memory lane, lemon meringue more sour now
Head of the game, rap powerhouse
Get what I’m saying?
Then get louder now

You tasted my flesh and tainted blood
And now you’ve got to speak your mind

Say what you wanna
Say what you wanna say
Not that it ever mattered anyway
Pray for redemption
Hope then to start again
It’s too late

You’ve already fallen from grace

Say what you wanna
Say what you wanna say
Not that it ever mattered anyway

I haven’t gave a fuck in a while, I’m fucking faded
Fresh out of class, headed to the fucking basement
Smoking loud speakers, loud complaining
Kills my vibe
Just lie to my face
And tell me I’m your favourite

Say what you wanna
Say what you wanna say
Not that it ever mattered anyway
Pray for redemption
Hope then to start again
It’s too late

You’ve already fallen from grace
Track Name: Cadence
When I say get over here
You better get it right
It's what makes me alive


I taught you everything I know
And when you need to bite
It's what makes me alive
I'm alive


Do you think you can lie to me?
Do you think you can lie to me?
Do you think you can lie?
You better hope that you hide from me
You better hope that you hide from me
You better hope that you hide


On your back is all I ask
I'm gonna wipe the tears away
It's what makes me insane


The water waits until your bored
And we'll call this foreplay
It's what makes you insane
I'm insane


Do you think you can lie to me?
Do you think you can lie to me?
Do you think you can lie?
You better hope that you hide from me
You better hope that you hide from me
You better hope that you hide from me


On your back is all I ask
I'm gonna wipe the tears away
It's what makes you insane


Do you think you can lie to me?
Do you think you can lie to me?
Do you think you can lie?
You better hope that you hide from me
You better hope that you hide from me
You better hope that you hide from me
Track Name: Pry
I dust you off and rub you clean
A treasure chest unlike nothing I've seen
Riddled with words, virtuous claims
And hieroglyphs from an earlier reign

I feel my way up to your hinge
But something's stopping me from entering in
This little box, she needs a key
Or magic words just to set her free

Don't protect yourself
Let me feel your wealth

And I'll pry you open
My will is weak for tongue and cheek
And I was hoping
You'd let me in and come with me
Come on

I crack the code and break you in
I feel myself moving under your skin
There's just one gem, a paragon
I'll leave without it cause I got what I want

Don't protect yourself
Let me feel your wealth

And I'll pry you open
My will is weak for tongue and cheek
And I was hoping
You'd let me in and come with me
Come on

Don't protect yourself
Don't protect yourself
Don't protect yourself

And I'll pry you open
My will is weak for tongue and cheek
And I was hoping
You'd let me in and come with me
Come on
I'll pry
I'll pry
Track Name: The Hermit
Seasons are changing and so are we
So we left him on his own to see what he would be
Went that night alone, with a stick of TNT
Bust the cap right off the gnome, good god no that was me

Getting loaded for free by taking it from me
So we dubbed him inhumane and dumped him on the street
We’ll see it as a shame cause he’s living day by day
Keep the alter for his name, good god take him away

Never looked back he’s the man of the land
Found him down the road with a trunk in his hand
He’s heading far away still right here he’s said to stay
Never looked back he’s the man of the land
Found him down the road with a trunk in his hand
He’s heading far away still right here he’s said to stay

His roots are in the ground in the land where he was wound
Like old embers blaze when the night comes down
This may not be him lost, but some say he’s far from found
Trapped inside her chamber, good god don’t make a sound

Never looked back he’s the man of the land
Found him down the road with a trunk in his hand
He’s heading far away still right here he’s said to stay
Never looked back he’s the man of the land
Found him down the road with a trunk in his hand
He’s heading far away still right here he’s said to stay, yeah

Never looked back he’s the man of the land
Found him down the road with a trunk in his hand
He’s heading far away still right here he’s said to stay
Never looked back he’s the man of the land
Found him down the road with a trunk in his hand
He’s heading far away still right here he’s said to stay
Never looked back he’s the man of the land
Found him down the road with a trunk in his hand
He’s heading far away still right here he’s said to stay
Track Name: Home
He had a feeling in his chest
Just a feeling he guessed
He'd have to cope
Cause he lived when the West was getting cold
Cold as snow

So he lived in the trees
It was hard on his knees
And he had none
Worked hard for his needs and dreamt of sun
It's just begun

This is
This is home
This is
This is home
This is home
Home
Home

Most keep it in their wreaths
But for him it never leaves
It hurts to know
It gets harder to be free, nowhere to go
In this his home

His warmth came from the flames
Which came from the decays
And he feared for the ones
He'd never see again, he found a gun
It lead him to the sun

This is
This is home
This is
This is home
This is home
Home
Home
Track Name: Hanging By A Thread
I'm gonna take advantage of every opportunity
I'm gonna do what's right even if it starts to bother me
I'm gonna hold my head in an angle that will let me see
I'm gonna hold my breath even though you give me room to breathe

Hang my head down
Hang by a thread

Gonna take advantage of every opportunity

Hang my head down
Hanging by a thread
Hang my head down
Hanging by a thread

If I could make you feel
How I often feel
Would it help you smile?
If I could make you see
What I often see
Would it be worth while?

Gonna take advantage of you
Track Name: War
So we won the war
So we won the battle
Fought them at the shoreline
Fought them by the saddle

Fell like a stone
Into our arms
And now we are alone
The city is all ours

Where will we go?
When everything is won
What will we own?
When the spoils are all
All gone?

Without the use of force
No one will subside
Just like the giant horse
That no one looked inside

So we won the war
So we won the battle
What was it for?
Does it even matter?

Where will we go?
When everything is won
What will we own?
When the spoils are all

Where will we go?
When everything is won
What will we own?
When the spoils are all
All gone?

All gone

So we won the war
So we won the battle
What was it for?
Does it even matter?

Where will we go?
When everything is won
What will we own?
When the spoils are all

Where will we go?
When everything is won
What will we own?
When the spoils are all
All gone?

All gone
Track Name: Alaskan Retreat
If I could sleep tonight
And didn't have to take this life
If I could somehow save you
If I knew the words to say

There's mountains in between us
Cliffs that I can't pass
The bridges burned long before
Long before you said we had detached

But I'm glad we had the chance

The thousand miles between us
Only brings us closer
I stay up at night and think of you
When I'm staring at my posters
There's not a lot that's left to do
And not a lot to say
It's make it hard when you're far away

These pictures don't complete you
They do no justice only harm
The thought is there but can't compare
To when you're in my arms

And I could light the candle
And I could start a flame
I'll bring your smile back to life
As your memory fades away

All that remains

The thousand miles between us
Only brings us closer
I stay up at night and think of you
When I'm staring at my posters
There's not a lot that's left to do
And not a lot to say
It's make it hard when you're far away

The thousand miles between us
Only brings us closer
I stay up at night and think of you
When I'm staring at my posters
There's not a lot that's left to do
And not a lot to say
It's make it hard when you're far away

A thousand miles between us
Track Name: Kurt Cobain
A kid far from famous and he lost it all
Sold all his friends and he bought his throne
He's down on the bathroom he's looking for more
Trying to feed the monster at his own front door

A pocket full of thoughts all floating in his head
They're all fucking stupid here take mine instead
There's a certain I think when everything is on hold
Is this the place we belong or have we just gotten old

Dial's tickin' around empty
Is it MTV or is that me
Birds flying in a perfect V
And I say, ain't that something?

Well ain't that something?

A kid far from famous and he lost it all
Sold all his friends and he bought his throne
He's down on the bathroom he's looking for more
Trying to feed the monster at his own front door

The dumb founded fame of Kurt Cobain
He built a life of lies and he staged his own name
Drenched in the sweat of last nights cocaine
He blocks out the sun, now he'll never be the same

Dial's tickin' around empty
Is it MTV or is that me
Birds flying in a perfect V
And I say, ain't that something?

Ain't that something
