Track Name: The Sea Inside
The Sea Inside

I'm from a line that was born for freedom.
But now the fresh air only stings.
You thieves never feel a touch of conscience.
Never wonder why the caged bird sings.

Just like how you hunt for fun.
And pass the dead on the side of the road.
You never think twice.
Reckless incarceration
in the name of petty traditions.
You never think twice.

Breed more weakness; More dependence.
Keep up appearances; "We're so blessed."
But are we really best friends?
When you cage the pets and eat the rest?

Incarceration isn't preservation.

Just like how you hunt for fun.
And pass the dead on the side of the road.
You never think twice.
Your precious civil rights
never reach past tunnel vision.
You never think twice.
Track Name: Coming Out Clean
Coming Out Clean

You feel the cold weigh hard on your back here.
The taste of iron like blood in your mouth.
You smell the fear in the cracks of the concrete.
Put out your hand...
The rain drips from the holes in the skylight
and counts the years from the key to my cage.
Hear the tap of the soles in the hallway...?
Stick your spoon in the wall.

Because we're scaling these walls tonight.
Because we're turning the tide.
You're gonna crawl through a river of shit
But we're coming out clean on the other side.
Because we're taking the tower tonight.
All it takes is pressure and time.
You know we're coming out clean on the other side.
We're coming out clean on the other side.

You see that light?! See the light?!
Cut and dig through the mortar.
Feel the heat on your face.
Wipe the blood from your fingers.
Stick your spoon in the wall!

Life blown away in the blink of an eye.
Nothing left but all the time in the world.
Track Name: Escape Plan
Escape Plan

You may not see it coming
But you're gonna see it go.
And now we all mean nothing
As the sirens begin to blow.
I see the skyline rising.
I feel the burning rain.
I hear the silence building
As the Mother poisons the children again.

On the day I take my life
There will be nowhere left to hide.
On the day I take my life
There will be nothing.
When the thunder claps
I'll have the wind at my back.

Your precious monoculture
Wiped out with one disease.
Another pipe disaster.
Another poisoned sea.
I see the skyline rising.
I feel the burning rain.
There's a glow in the water.
Watch it wash us all away.

No god to look me in the eye.
Let the black swallow me alive.
Track Name: Keep Running
Keep Running

If you never broke a bone, you're not doing it right.
If you've never left town, you're not doing it right.
If you still believe in god, but not in yourself
Then you're doing it wrong.

If you quit your band to get a job, you're not doing it right.
If your kids grew up to hate you, you're not doing it right.
If you know the answer before you hear the question
Then you're doing it wrong.

Midnight is coming
But we were born to run.
Hold me close while I'm still young.

If you've never cried all night, you're not doing it right.
If you've never tasted cum, you're not doing it right.
If you've never cared about someone more than yourself
Then you're doing it wrong.

If you never feel the burn, you're not doing it right.
If you've never done it wrong, then you're doing it wrong.
And if you think gay rights and civil rights aren't the same thing
You're a fucking asshole.

Keep Running. You've got to want it.
