Track Name: An Image of the Heavens
Some men kick the bucket
Turn to dust
But if luck would have it
I'll be preserved and rust
Like Jesus Christ upon his cross
Words live on, meaning lost
Upon a name to fear before
Wait for our reckoning
For all eternity

Kneeling before
An image of the heavens

Painted on hell's door
Track Name: Wolves and the Opinions of Sheep
You're an egalitarian who won't give me a chance
And I don't mean to sound crass
But your "equality" can kiss my ass
You scoff at God with every stance
You laugh me off without a glance
But before you go to dance your dance
You should know, you know I know

You stripped the universe of God
Convinced the masses of your fraud
Retained that sense of awe they sought
To get exactly what you want
And I don't know how I'll fight this fight
Or reexplain a wrong from right
Because my language is corrupt
For some want power more than love

My words are razor sharp
Running straight across your heart
And I'm still deadly with a weapon
If you're pushing me too far
So now you're warned
I won't hesitate to finish what you start
And leave you stranded with my sugar
In the gas tank of your car

And now you beg for my mercy
But you're not one to ask
Forgiveness was a gift from the God you killed
Please don't make me laugh
We're in a different world now
One you thought would be great
But as the dust settles down
You see the root's not love, but hate

And still you beg for my mercy
But you're still not one for help
Forgiveness was a gift from the God you killed
You brought this on yourself
We're in a different world now
One that you helped create
But since the dust has settled down
You see the cost: no love, just hate
Track Name: Fish in the Sea
Just once I'd like
To greet the sunrise
Without the burden of these
Awkward goodbyes
Though I speak no lies
Some things I hide
In the dark of the night
To get on their good side
So it comes as no surprise
When I see regret
Show in their eyes
And I wish we'd never met

I'm drowning in a sea
One that lacks any creativity
I could escape
But I want the life I saw on TV

Though at first you'd deny
I've no need to pry
Your actions imply
That you're lonely inside
So when I fill you up
In more ways than one
Do you hope that finally
Your searching is done?

She’s drowning in a sea
One that lacks any creativity
She could escape
But she’s satisfied by mediocrity

And somewhere someone sleeps
Dreaming their dreams
Thinking that we
Are worthy of envy
Cause when they wake
It's next to no one
They want to make
What we once called love
But have since given up
Track Name: Analog Solitude
This is how I feel
Surrounded, yet alone
This is what I get
When I try to leave my home
My stomach is upset
That's nothing new
Full with regret
Running low on fuel

This is how I feel
Imagine if you knew
Only half real
And nothing but

A fool for you

Can't keep control
As your lips move
With your eyes on me
I've got something to prove
I learned between the sheets
That I love you
So I broke the rules
Ask me again
And I'll deny that it's true
After all

I'm a fool
A fool for you
Aren't we all?
Track Name: Digital Harem
Every night another girl
Makes her way into my world
And maybe brings a friend or two
To pull my thoughts away from you
And it frees me from my wandering
Reminds me of my fantasies
And you can say it's fake, baby
But they're more real than you to me

Anymore

Living in digital age
This is old, refresh the page
Dear image on computer screen
Please take away my misery
This is sad, still have no choice
I'd much rather hear your voice
And yes, I know it's fake, baby
But they're more real than you to me

Anymore

Barely legal pixelate
All dolled up in crimson lace
Feel no shame to desecrate
A soon aged angel's perfect face
Oh, how I wish this were fake
Can't escape, all I feel is pain

Anymore
Track Name: The Company He Keeps
What you say
And what you mean
Are two different things
And that's why we disagree

And I would try to help you understand
Oh yeah, I'd lend you a hand
But they say you can tell a lot about a man
By the company he keeps
So I guess that must mean
I'm imaginary
I'm imaginary

What you have heard
And what you've seen
Don't mean a thing
Compared to what you need

And I would try to help you understand
Oh yeah, I'd lend you a hand
But they say you can tell a lot about a man
By the company he keeps
So I guess that must mean
I'm imaginary
I'm imaginary

You see what you want to see
In some grand conspiracy
To keep your conscience clean
Anything to come between you and me

And I would try to help you understand
Oh yeah, I'd lend you a hand
But they say you can tell a lot about a man
By the company he keeps
So I guess that must mean
I'm imaginary
You're imaginary
We're imaginary
We've been imagining everything
