Track Name: Human Targets
We hang on walls, like we hang on words
Holding faith in everything that we’ve heard
Too blind to see our neighbors bleed
While plutocrats take aim at you and me

From their point of view
If it’s a hit, it’s a hit
If it’s a miss, it’s a miss
And regardless, it doesn’t mean shit
And they couldn’t care less
Cause there’s nothing in it for them

Looking for justice
Within this conflict of interest

We live in fear cause that’s all that we know
Break our backs and our brains, then recover at home
Bind our hands and our legs, put us on display
Then complain that we complain

Just keep on ignoring us

Looking for justice
Within this conflict of interest
You say I wouldn’t accomplish
Without your hands in my pockets

Looking for justice
Within this conflict of interest
You say I wouldn’t accomplish
Without your bombs and your rockets

Well I disagree
And I know it’s just me
All alone

And so I’ll remain
On this wall with my shame
A bag of bones
A bag of bones
Just a bag of bones
Track Name: Tuned Out
Life is a maze and
In this state of malaise
I just need something to hold onto

For what on earth could sustain
Through trepidation and the mundane
While the world consumes you?

Tune me out

If you’re gonna cry turn away
I don’t have time for that today
Call on Jesus if you need saved
Consult a sinner if you need praise

It's time you should go
Cause despite all my lies
I know I can't hide
My tears anymore

The end of the show
Blank stare in my eyes, 
Only fuzz on the screen
Return to monotony

Tune me out

If you’re gonna cry turn away
I don’t have time for that today
Call on Jesus if you need saved
Consult a sinner if you need praise

Break, don’t speak, I don’t want to hear
About love and loss and all of your fears
Revive the meek with stories to fill my ears
Of the thugs who called the shots
And wasted all those years

I’m tuning out
Not coming back
I’m tuning out
Track Name: Minor Misunderstanding
I'm alive and that's all I can ask
So hand me my mask
And I'll throw the poison back
And I'll grow old
Doing all that I'm told
Growing one hole in my liver
For every two in my soul

And maybe I'll come to forgive
But until then I'd rather you were dead
And maybe I'll learn to love again
But until then I'll be crying myself to sleep in my bed

Jesus Christ, would you turn your cheek
To the pleasure I seek
Or hold hot coals to my feet?
Cause I've grown tired
Of this faith you inspired
And each passing week
I wait in vain for her to crawl back to me

And maybe I'll come to forgive
But until then I'd rather you were dead
And maybe I'll learn to love again
But until then I think it's just as well
You laying there leaking thoughts like a sieve

From the hole
I put in your head

And maybe I'll come to forgive
But until then I'd rather you were dead
And maybe I'll learn to love again
But until then I'll be crying myself to sleep in my bed

And maybe I'll come to forgive
And maybe I'll learn to love again
Track Name: Life After Death
You stare straight through me
As you try to erase the memories
That haunt you from our first days
Another drink, another tear down your cheek
There hasn't been a smile on your face in weeks
So you wait on me with an eye on the clock
Fearing your dreams, as it seems you forgot that

Whether or not you want me to I'll follow you
And wait outside your home so you know you're not alone
Until the light enters your eyes after another restless night
Because you were too afraid to sleep tight

Don't you think you can hide from me
I'll be waiting right here for you patiently
For as long as it takes, until you too pass,
I've got all the time in the world
These feelings will last

Whether or not you want me to I'll follow you
And wait outside your home so you know you're not alone
Until the light enters your eyes after another restless night
Because you were too afraid to sleep tight
And I won't have the might to turn away while you bathe
No, that wouldn't be right
To waste my sight on anything less beautiful than you

Does it scare you my dear
That I'm always near
Cause I can't complain
Even with my body in a grave

Whether or not you want me to I'll follow you
And wait outside your home so you know you're not alone
Until the light enters your eyes after another restless night
Because you were too afraid to sleep tight
And I won't have the might to turn away while you bathe
No, that wouldn't be right
To waste my sight on anything less beautiful than you
Track Name: Nothing Comes Easy
The Earth is always spinning, just is
There’s no way to change it, accept
It’s beginning to make sense
It’s beginning to make sense

Something good is coming, have faith
Don’t fear, you can survive the weight
I don’t know where I’m going
I just hope you’re there
I don’t know where I’m going

So I’ll sit here with my guitar and write a song
About what everyone’s been searching for all along
They need a purpose, a good reason for why they were born
To be their boat on their way back to shore

One foot follows the other on the street
Still feels like I’m floating in the sea
I don’t know where I’m going
I just hope you’re there
I don’t know where I’m going

So I’ll sit here with my guitar and write a song
About what everyone’s been searching for all along
They need a purpose, a good reason for why they were born
To be their boat on their way back to shore

Where is the lighthouse?
Would have thought we’d find it by now
Where is the lighthouse?
Don’t stop paddling, keep an eye out

“Don’t worry, be happy”
I’m afraid it won’t be that easy
What we need is a whole new perspective
To pry the lid off this secret
That God’s holding hostage
Right in front of our faces

So I’ll stand here with my guitar and sing a song
About what everyone’s been searching for all along
They need a purpose, a good reason for why they were born
To be their boat on their way back to shore
