Track Name: Understanding Enthalpy
Stop my heart
(Hey general)
Please restart
(If you look close enough the struggle seams so real)
Stop my heart
(I'll grow until I die)
Please restart
(All hands on deck)
Track Name: The Most Dangerous Game
There is evidence that no one lives to tell of running through the mazes of hell
There is consequence so I bid you farewell, now hurry on your way my friend, I wish you well, I wish you well

Hey General, come find me, come find me
Hey General, come kill me, come kill me

We were fine and you were mine but we've already fallen off the bow
There was more but you were so sure but we've already fallen off the bow

We need to change

We've been waiting for our whole lives to feel this free
Your throat, my blade, will meet and kiss so tenderly
I'm not die cast, I am organic and I'll grow until I die, cast away here until I die
Track Name: Retreat! Retreat!
The air feels colder when I'm here
Alone with twenty million people all around
This amnesty that I have found
Is slowly crashing down the walls are crashing down

This could be the furthest thing from truth the world has ever seen
If you look close enough the struggle seems surreal

To hunt, or be hunted, it seems that is the question not the choice that I have made
It's getting vicious as I feared
Retreat, retreat before they finish off the war

This could be the furthest thing from truth the world has ever seen
If you look close enough the struggle seems so real

I met an angel at my door
I've never felt this way before
I don't know what I must do
I don't know what I must do
I met an angel at my door
And I am legend to the cause
I now know what i must do
I now know

I know that you've been waiting
I know you're hoping for a cure

Don't worry about a thing
I'll drown you out
I can't hear a sound
There's no way in or out
Metal in my teeth, metal in my veins

Stop my heart and don't restart
Track Name: Weapons Made by the Lowest Bidder
Take no prisoners
Don't save the enemy
As we move in dead silence
Live in dead silence

Stand your ground soldier
Just have some faith in me
As we fall in dead silence
Die in dead silence

You can make a throne of bayonets but you can't sit on it for long

Prone to land, our last stand, aim towards the enemy
Waiting in the grass now this is our last chance
Waiting for the crash, waiting to turn into ash
Battle plans will die if you look us in the eye

Incoming fire has the right of way
History is on our side
Don't fire unless you know they're in range

We will bury you
Truth is our casualty
So aim towards the enemy
Towards the enemy

We're losing the fight
Lost sight of what is right
So we fall in dead silence
Die in dead silence

Incoming fire has the right of way
History is on our side
Don't fire unless you know they're in range
Nothing is sacred, no
Nothing is worth it, no
Nothing is sacred, no
Nothing is worth it, no
Nothing is sacred, Nothing is sacred
Track Name: Anatomy
Break the glass and set this body free
For the ghosts that live inside of me
Father, father, what's your explanation?
Tell me what you wear that ring for
Won't you tell me what happens when I die
Bury me at sea, bury me at sea
Father, father, what's your explanation?
Tell me what you think we're all here for

Photons, reflect your light waves back at me
Lungs and arms and eyes in symmetry
My lips part opposite your beauty mark
Mirror, mirror, please correct me
Water, refract the words from my mouth
Bend the truth or smother any sound
My lips part right before the best part
Mirror, mirror, please contain me

We ran into the devil, we fell into his maze
We ran into the devil, now we'll run for days
Get these rivets in my brain
Mesh these gears to start the blood flow
I am under cardiac arrest
Cannonballs and chains weigh down my chest

I like my body when it is with your body
Align our spines and cross these capillary wires

Stop my heart, please restart

My heart is on the right side
It pumps blood into my mind
My left brain campaigns against evolutionary indifference
My heart is on the right side
It pumps blood into my eyes
Oh, X-ray machine if you can see inside of me you would not believe
