Special Thanks to Matthew Greenberg for his never-ending patience and multitude of visual talents and to Nick Zinnanti for taking our sound and making it fit perfectly within a recorded track. Both are stellar professionals in a class of their own. Without them, what we do would not be possible.

Other acknowledgements belong to Spencer Schecht, Max Batchelder, and Jorge Soto for their tireless work in making our video awesome, to Kevin Hewes, Danny Kubik and Tim Delwey for their guidance that made us a tighter band and to every single person who clicked on a link sent by a band that they had never heard of, took the time to listen to our songs and continue to push us to keep doing what we love doing.

Track Name: Don't Mind the Debauchery
The stars are out this morning
Blotted shapes amongst a backdrop
An increasing light is dawning
All to be banished by the sun
Swift, strong, a nuisance of society
Independent strokes of genius and insanity
Headstrong, this victim of brutality will never really have a tight grip on their humanity

And I thought I was the only one blind enough to see

Screw letting go of who we are and hope to be
I came too far to consciously give up originality

The strokes of white lightning strike the trees with a vengeance
Cause a chain-like reaction all without modern satisfaction

We don’t have anything left
We don’t have anything left
We left all our burdens behind when the oceans expanded

Manipulating the tide
Manipulating my mind
The signs all point to:
“I don’t really care about you”
And this night will go on
I tell myself this to justify not knowing you
And why are you playing those games?
Find someone who has the time to play
'Cause this game’s over
Track Name: Mistakes at Twin Lakes
There’s gotta be a motive on this pointless lack of conversation
We’re focused enough to break through to the bottom of this lack of supervision over what we call our lives
It’s not good enough to pour our souls into the void
Envelope every inch inside until we find our sense of pride

Just let it go
Let me know how we got so high
I’m falling hopeless and dramatic
Another never-ending habit

It’s all the same but learning to accept and not to blame
The world is exactly as it should be
So pull your pieces back together
Bite off more than you can chew

Purest white
Grant me all you've got to give
Grant me every petty wish
I challenge momentary bliss
Fight me for the honor we bestow on every hero met by foe
Our lives are never-ending

Lights fade and towers fall
Ignoring peace through it all
Try to separate our minds but bodies end up tangled sometimes

Return my spirit back to home
We’ll move through the never-ending sea of white
Blinding my eyes
The purest tinting of whites
It lies ahead

Under the pigment left like snow
Poured into vast and dying skies
Is it what you wanted?
And if it doesn’t go as planned who will take the fall?

Light our way
Who will take the fall?
Track Name: Only at the Top of a Mountain
How can it be this way?
I’m on top of a fucking mountain
See the lights stretch down below
Assimilated, guided by the day
Today
‘Cause honestly tomorrow’s miles away
And what I’d give to just stay here forever and take this scenic view with you

My lungs can barely breath
And if I fall, will you catch me?

We’re at the top of the world and bracing ourselves, bracing ourselves to get higher yet

I said be careful when standing close to the edge
I didn’t want nothing to happen unexpected or we’ll end up dead
A part of me is wondering how the hell we will get down
It doesn’t seem to matter though
Right now

‘Cause I’m alive
I’m alive for the first time
And I can clearly see the median between the colors of your eyes

The way they shine off of the snow and sky
The little things, the little things that happen between you and I
These ropes have snapped along with all the beauty that’s attached

Just rest your head
We’re racing through the sky
Falling to demise
Sit back and dream
We dream in different colors
The colors of your eyes

At the top of the world
And bracing ourselves, bracing ourselves for impact
I said be careful when standing close to the edge
And now we’re falling very fast to our disaster
Just like I said
And I can clearly see the median between the colors of your eyes

(To my surprise)
Track Name: The Jaunt
Please give me one good reason angel
Angel

I’m all out of strategy while you are attacking me with reasons unaccounted for
Your lies are strewn across the floor
What part of life just don’t you get
Been up all night set up for this
Just act like you’re so innocent and keep on bringing me down

We’ve been stuck here way too long
In this mess we call a home
Angel please
You’re dragging your feet across the floor

Why’s there have to be so many different roads to take
When the one that’s straight and to the point works better anyway
Just raise your voice in protest contemplating annotations made
Angel, I said lock that fucking door

Liar please
I don’t believe a word you say to me
Angel please
Your light means everything to me

And exactly what point was made in deceiving the world into believing you are who you say you are

And not caring of the consequence or aftermath
You're set in your lies
Arrows fill the sky and to stand in a lie is certain suicide

So lets get one thing straight, angel
You’re set in your lies
Track Name: Floater
We’re skydiving with one eye blind to, one eye blind to the world
Thoughts move slow through the decline
A docile sense of mind
A silent form of discord breathing slowly
Flying by
Anticipating floating into the sky

Only one
Only while we float right through the sky

It’s never ending
They’re gonna let us live this down
The sky is falling with mesmerizing words to paint this sound

It’s such a trivial way to live this down
Fight amongst the people on the ground
We’re moving slowly
Planning how to bring some comfort to the floating people on their knees
Rise up to me
Only one
Only while we float right through the sky

Excuse me but I must decline to float on by
To live a lie
To misconstrue that with no plans there’s no meaning to float on

It’s never ending
They’re gonna let us live this down
The sky is falling with mesmerizing words to paint this sound
We're never gonna live this down

The politics is on my list of things to bash alarming the people of what is overhead
Watching, waiting
Temporary visions of ecstacy
We'll be floating, we'll be floating on
Galaxies pulling me closer and closer
I see where it's leading me
Floating alone
Track Name: No Respect
Well, if looks could kill your eyes can calmly see
Congratulation to the girl who took everything from me
Boring copies from a world that brought down structures built by man
With the help of sex to get us through the copy boom

I just don’t give a fuck
Can you imagine why?
The flight that didn’t book could never really fly

Now that that’s through we’ll calmly designate manipulations of the mind without sinful rebate
Procrastination killed the boy who knows not what to do
And everybody’s got something to prove

We’ll rise again after we’re dead
Just to believe we’ve left something behind
Deciding when to pretend
Never to know that our message is dead

Fight again
Hide again
Never to know that our message is dead
Lies again
Lined in sin
Never to know…

Why does everybody look so high?
Even doctors take the pills that they prescribe
Crush it up and rail until they’re high enough to drive

We’ll rise again after we’re dead
Just to believe we’ve left something behind
Deciding when to pretend
Never to know that our message is dead

Fight again
Hide again
Never to know that our message is dead
Lies again
Lined in sin
Never to know that our message is dead
We’ve left something behind and it seems like a whole lot more than what we’ve planned

We've left something behind
Fight again
Hide again
Never to know that our message is dead
Lies again
Hide in sin
Never to know that our dreams are dead
