Track Name: Ancestors Laugh In Heaven
Ancestors Laugh In Heaven

V1-
Get a job, not the one you got
Your Mother raised you better
Or did she not?

A deviled name, a withered heart
Two severed vocal chords
A submissive bark

V2-
Fancy house, a fine cheating spouse
Your Father went grey pretending he’d stick it out

Hapless plot, they gave it a shot
Ancestors laugh in Heaven
Been there done that

CH-
I’ve held your head at night; you’ll pray they’ll take you home
I’ve held your head at night; you’ll pray they break you down

*Lyrics by Jace Miller
Track Name: I'm Alright Now
I’m Alright Now

V1-
We could end this for good
We’re beating up this dead horse
A thousand acres of white noise
Often not given a choice

V2-
We’re drifting further from land
Prosthetic emotion implant

CH-
Yet, I’m alright, now
Yes, I’m alright, now

*Lyrics by Jace Miller
Track Name: Something Strange
Something Strange

V1-
Now, it’s time to fight the battle you will win
Second thoughts could swim a witch for which to burn
All the tables turn and you float away
I could barely stand in the water that you bathe
Luke warm

V2-
Now, our patience wane in waves of brilliant light
Silent partners perish in droves through the night
All the tables turn and you float away
I could barely stand in the water that you bathe
Luke warm

CH-
Something strange is over me
Something cold is happening


BRDG-
Don’t let me out

*Lyrics by Jace Miller
Track Name: Stay
Stay

V1-
Never felt so vulnerable
Every word you speak could be the damn death of me
Silhouettes of ourselves flood the bay
Captivated on display
I know where I wanna…

V2-
Poking holes in hopes for so long
Buried memories increase
I gotta get out of this place
Found a pulse but it’s lacking in faith
Hard to swallow life’s refrain
I know where I wanna…

CH-
Stay
By the hard earned wages
Bye
By the hard earned pain and I don’t wanna help you forget

BRDG-
Couldn’t help but drag us back home
Every step we took was on our pathetic knees
Couldn’t help but drag us back home
Every step we took brought us here today

*Lyrics by Jace Miller
Track Name: Burn
Burn

V1-
A web of maybes
Portraying crazy
Spies are teething
Birds are kneeling
Down where you will leave me
Scratching at the ceiling

V2-
A spear of sunbeams
Confessing crazy
Clenching my teeth
Stuck in this daydream
Down where you will leave me
Scratching at the ceiling

CH-
Burn, for the first time, are we prone to burn?
For the first time, are we prone, too?

*Lyrics by Jace Miller
Track Name: Human Heart
Human Heart

V1-
At an arms length you will find me
Holding on for dear life
When you died right in front of me
So did all my insides

V2-
I’m afraid of getting too close
I fear losing you, too
It’s the guilt that just kills me
I’ll be better for you

CH-
Have you ever seen a human heart stop beating on another?
All the air you used to breathe
All lit up
All you gave

*Lyrics by Jace Miller
Track Name: Live In Fear
Live In Fear

V1-
All the children on the weekend run to play
All the parents filter hardship kneel to pray
All the starving left for vultures anyway
All the liars making money
What’s it gonna be?

V2-
All the eager and devoted congregate
All the shepherds rise again to delegate
All the beggars and the choosers are the same
All the steeples impale for money
What’s it gonna be?

CH-
So many rather live in fear of the light ahead
So many rather live in fear and run into the ground

BRDG-
…ground
That’s where we’re found
Distorted sound
Can’t look around
Another brainwashed town

OUT-
Live in fear
Another prayer
I cannot bare

*Lyrics by Jace Miller
Track Name: The Hell You Gave Me
The Hell You Gave Me

V1-
Quiet morning/mourning rain
The air grows heavy
We’ve come up empty with every whisper to the Gods
See the mess we’ve made?
Like kids finding handguns
Psycho trending fashion
Now the news vans press for time

V2-
Desperation sins
It will eat at your insides
Leave a note for the baptized to contradict it all
See that pouring rain?
It’s a sign to give up on these childish thoughts of always thinking that we’re right

PRE-CH-
I weathered the Hell you gave me
I wanted to help you out
You wore me out (I wore you out)

CH-
All depends on whether we hold hands across the borderline towards a hollow future (life)

*Lyrics by Jace Miller
Track Name: Cutthroat Omen
Cutthroat Omen

V1-
I’ve been so tired of sleeping through my days
Awake at night thinking

V2-
Dig in and smile
Breathe deep
Assume nothing
Mouth dry and eyes bloodshot

V3-
Away, we ride through time at a going rate
Sci-Fi brainchild, soothe me
I walk far side
Barter with aliens
Speak clear with pride
Trade names

CH-
Cutthroat omen
Checkmate
Won’t you pardon me?

BRDG-
Hey! We’re on a plain, we can’t complain
What am I trying to say?

*Lyrics by Jace Miller
Track Name: All Of Us Kids
All Of Us Kids

V1-
Invest a lot, impress a lot and expect a lot to go dead wrong
Don’t think to trot back to the spot we made the promise pointing fingers all along
We wouldn’t change a thing now if we could

V2-
Taking trains exposing lanes won’t neglect the meanings of this bond we share, surgically embedded
Skip stones and take out loans
How much will you need now?
How long to internalize systematic oppression?

CH-
All of us kids
We stay this way to seek a truth
Just like you

*Lyrics by Jace Miller
Track Name: How You've Changed Me
How You’ve Changed Me

V1 & V2-
Take a picture of this
Take a photo you can keep, that trick right up your tight sleeve

PRE-CH
I’m offended that you’re offended, too
There’s no end here

CH-
Every time I survive
Every part of my life
How you’ve changed me
I could never pay back for scars, that I gave you

*Lyrics by Jace Miller
Track Name: One More Year
One More Year

V1-
I’ve been made self-aware
I plan on coping for just one more year
Autumn leaves, my only friend
She’ll tell you something that no one could

V2-
The sky is caving
There’s no time to spend
I’ll tell you something that no one would
Are you listening?
I’m not sure I care
I plan on coping for just one more year

CH-
I know I begged you to stay to the end
Could I’ve been better? No better than who I am

*Lyrics by Jace Miller
