I feel the cracking of my bones in my mouth I taste my own blood Spit and kicks from everywhere no way to escape Vultures circling in the sky monsters of another kind They laugh and feed on my pain feasting on disdain Hit me again if you need someone to blame it's gonna ease your pain that's ok, I don't care and I, I will rise again phoenix from the flames

So scared that I can't breathe I still wear the marks right on my skin of endless days I thought i wouldn't make it Through the desert, in the burning sand afraid and tortured in a foreign land will this wooden coffin stay afloat? Away from home far away from home far away away from home far away from home far away All the things I left behind I feel so stupid 'cause I'm crying for memories that no longer matter They're flashing quickly through my mind like slides, like frames of my own film so remote, I can't recognize myself Away from home far away from home far away away from home far away from home far away Now my tears are mixing with the salty waves of this dark hostile sea it grabs me and pulls me down I try to slip away, but I can't breathe If you ever hear my story please always remember why I'm gone I was simply trying to live my life looking for a place I could call home

YYZ 03:14
Walking on Spadina with a hundred million thoughts heading down to Queen West destination still unknown going where my feet will take me lost in a maze of wrong turns Counting steps and counting names and counting my mistakes listing untold secrets and for once just being late fading into nothing once again I know that my place in the world is here I know that my place in the world's not here I trust my inner compass like a sailor in the storm I push on despite the fact that I got lost I turn my existence upside down at every coin I toss a million times I did it right a million I did it wrong decisions taken, directions, plans on which I have no control

What is real and what is fake? can't distinguish what's in front of me a perfect texture, synthesized everything looks smooth and flawless Gliding on a different plane a million faces all around me they all kind of look the same they tell me I'm not alone you're not alone, you're not alone they whisper as they fade away you're not alone, you're not alone I'm not alone What is real and what is fake? what guise will you wear today? a perfect – texture built from nothing – built for nothing While this music plays we dance to forget how to find real solace the only truth dissolves away right before our eyes You're not alone, you're not alone they whisper as they fade away you're not alone, you're not alone I'm not alone All around me walls grow taller I gasp for air while this room gets smaller I reach out for the handle and pull it there's another world outside of here
5.
There must be something more there must be something more than a rosary of days with my name the only proof at some point I was there I woke up in my bed in a sea of sweat like every day chugged my piss coffee and ate nothing there's no time, I'm gonna miss my train Working so hard to gain nothing just to make sure I can sustain the weight of life that slips away a velvet lined coffin in which I hammered each day There must be something more there must be something more than a rosary of days with my name the only proof at some point I was there 6.30 am same plot again what's to understand? it was a lie when they kept saying that I was meant to do something grand I can't remember when it happened when inside me something just snapped I threw in the towel lights off and in my hands the perception that nothing was real
6.
There's a bomb inside my head you gotta be a little crazy to be sane in this world of fear there's a bomb inside my head it's gonna explode and paint this city all colors – what a great idea Today's all mine 'cause tomorrow doesn't look like I'm completely out of control 'cause I'm so tired of being let down it's over now There's a bomb inside my head suddenly it's all crystal clear there's a bomb inside my head it's either give in to apathy or start a revolution right here Today's all mine 'cause tomorrow doesn't look like I'm completely out of control 'cause I'm so tired of being let down it's over now Right now! right now! right now! right now! right now!

As One 03:40
Breathe hold this moment we're floating free and there's nothing else Panic a distant memory tranquility surrounds it all No one else understands me more than you we're as one Clear the sky above us and down below our tiny earth Trails crossed into the darkness and gravity brought us so close No one else understands me more than you take my hand and jump into the unknown tethered to our love If I traveled a thousand times a million light years in the space in every possible direction from this place I'd always come right back to you with no hesitation, no more fear you're the only beacon that I know I hear you loud and clear when I'm lost

Seems like we cannot simply learn mistakes are made again and again repeating patterns and themes is it hard to understand That this path to the grand elite where you're privileged or you're dead where ignorance is bliss we've already seen all this And yet we keep neglecting the signals that are coming are strong but no we're still not Aware – I swear I won't just wait for tragedies to come and again – this fascist farce won't stand we've seen it crumble once - let's do it again 'cause today, like yesterday the losers won't prevail we'll win again Well my guitar is not a gun but it's loaded and ready to fire when times are looking dire when every little bit counts to build communities to thrive and then to stand protect each other again we've already seen all this And yet we keep neglecting the signals that are coming are strong but no we're still not Aware – I swear I won't just wait for tragedies to come and again – this fascist farce won't stand we've seen it crumble once - let's do it again 'cause today, like yesterday the losers won't prevail we'll win again They plant the seed of fear the scapegoats are always near they starve us to then watch us fiercely battering our peers the common cause they build they language that they use an easy bite to chew to infect you at least just be aware

These things I never told you you didn't give me a chance I'm mad at you, I'm mad at the world, I'm mad at my goddamn self I'd try to be convincing by finding the right words about how life sometimes just takes these unexpected turns I'd try to be convincing but you won't pick up your phone a single stupid instant and my world is overturned And all these words unspoken I'm singing standing here were meant for you, will you hear now that you have disappeared If only I had the chance to tell you what is on my mind it hurts to know I couldn't see your soul torn in disquiet I feel so small in front of things I cannot understand it's what you think is best for you but there is no return You sink into the silence as peaceful as it sounds while all around you a black hole devours the whole town And all these words unspoken I'm singing standing here were meant for you, will you hear now that you have disappeared this humble song goes to those who still can hear these words when nothing seems to matter the only thing that matter is you and all these words unspoken i'm singing standing here were meant for you, will you hear now that you have disappeared

We spend more time in the traffic than with people that we love we complain about being lonely we're the reason we're cut off so disgustingly obedient even when we should say something's not ok We don't say a word about injustice but we get angry for the game and the people who live worse lives are the ones we solely blame being defined by eight hours out of twenty four and we cannot see that’s not ok Is it this world that has gone crazy or I'm insane? am I just another spoiled kid or is it right to complain? when you see my puzzled look then you know I'm not insane it's just clear to me that something's not ok We put chains around our necks and we built cages to enslave every single piece of nature that we need to dominate we always know someone's responsible for all that's wrong, we never take the blame We try to meet high expectations slaves to everyone but ourselves we keep buying things that won't last spending money we don't have a dystopic universe – is this 1984 all over again? Still we blankly stare at the fall hypnotized – as if the fire and flames were forging a future without hope
11.
Deep in your eyes that is where I find – the strength to hold on and not give up the future the faith something's gonna change - one day I still believe in you, in the future I still believe you'll do what's right in the future it all comes down to this, you see it all comes down to this Maybe I've seen enough and dark thoughts seem to suffocate all hopes when the men are old and tired and can't confront their own mistakes in you – I find a bright light at the horizon we haven't done all this for nothing I still believe in you, in the future I still believe you'll do what's right in the future it all comes down to this, you see it all comes down to this
