Track Name: Life Illusion
You live your life you make your choice
to pretend you’re in charge
live or die - pay the price
no one cares by and large

life illusion/ no confusion

set the rules for me to follow
i’ll obey them by all means
i feel real when i am hollow
just need them to pull the strings

i don’t know what to do
i have nothing on my mind
it has gone just fuckin’ blank
i left myself somewhere behind

there’s no one here to show me how
there’s no one here to tell me why
there’s no one here to point me he way
i’ve never been here all by myself
Track Name: Off Balance
pointless effort
senseless game
you try to win
but to what end

pushing through the crowd
just to be alone
shouting all the time
to be in a quiet zone

pointless effort
senseless game
you try to win
but to what end

earning fuckin’ living
to waste your life away
looking for somebody
to hate them in the end
being honest with them
just to stab their backs
saying all is fine
to keep them in the dark
pretending to be yourself
not to let them guess
you’re trying to win the game...
... but you’ll lose in the end
Track Name: House Arrest
confined to what you think is right
and never give a second thought
never give a look outside
loyal to what you’ve been taught

a house arrest
bars that tame
your mind will never
get out the frame

a house arrest
you chose yourself
live in a bubble
crawled in your shell

pressure’s getting fuckin’ higher
you hope next day brings nothing new
there’s nothing looming on horizon
there are only others living like you

under

house arrest
Track Name: Stand-off
Standing in the middle
of two people that are me
one is me i want to be
the other’s me you want to see
no one really knows the thing
neither’s real i’ll say for sure
i’m only real when i’m between
being here’s a fuckin’ torture

what is right and what’s wrong
who’s lying in this song
who’s innocent and who’s to blame
a grain of truth in each of them
there’s no choice, set me free
i’m trapped between myself and me

stand-off!

i’m suffocating
i need some air
no hope for me
death in despair
Track Name: Snakes In The Grass
you wear heart on your sleeve
but you’re the one to set the rules

snakes in the grass

slithering in the distance
ang giving us judgmental looks

snakes in the grass

a fuckin’ spy
your serpent tongue
it’s in your eyes

you start to shake
we ask no questions
and hear no lies

never getting closer
you’re afraid of being seen

snakes in the grass

we would cast a shade on
your brand new perfect hyped scene

snakes in the grass

a fuckin’ spy
your serpent tongue
it’s in your eyes

you start to shake
we ask no questions
and hear no lies
