Track Name: Trigger
Half-cocked I hunt the strong
The chamber full and the barrel long
While boots run the streets
Yeah I'm pulling up flowers and planting weeds

Revel in the flame
Such a God damn shame
I should have been taking stock
But I was taking aim

Now I stand so self-assured
I feel the world in my hands like clay
Finger on the trigger
Eyes on the ground
And an inside track running down the drain

It would clot your bleeding heart
To see the things that I have seen
The dried up husk of a society
Living on its hands and knees

Revel in the flame
Such a God damn shame
I should have been taking stock
But I was taking aim

Now I stand so self-assured
I feel the world in my hands like clay
Finger on the trigger
Eyes on the ground
And an inside track running down the drain

Yeah the world grows colder now
With the sweat of the trigger beating on its brow
I come above the crowd
And if I can't lead then I'll tear it down

Revel in the flame
Such a God damn shame
I should have been taking stock
But I was taking aim

Now I stand so self-assured
I feel the world in my hands like clay
Finger on the trigger
Eyes on the ground
And an inside track running down the drain

Revel in the flame
Such a God damn shame
I should have been taking stock
But I was taking aim

Now I stand so self-assured
I feel the world in my hands like clay
Finger on the trigger
Eyes on the ground
And an inside track running down the drain
Track Name: Anomie
Hoping toward havoc come the battle cries
The weary sighs and the starving eyes
Pulling down the king just to rape the queen
Comes the press of the crowd
Bored like cattle

Got nothing left to do
There's nothing more to see
I feel it coming over me
Sand pouring through my fingers
Light pouring through my eyes
The end of meaning anomie

Children in the ashes of the streets they burned
No memories and no conviction
Staring at the sun searching for a sign
We're emptied out
We've had our fill

Got nothing left to do
There's nothing more to see
I feel it coming over me
Sand pouring through my fingers
Light pouring through my eyes
The end of meaning anomie

Beating down the mountains to make out plateaus
Another stage for another show
I'll pull down the stars for a string of lights
The sky is empty
There's no one home

Got nothing left to do
There's nothing more to see
I feel it coming over me
Sand pouring through my fingers
Light pouring through my eyes
The end of meaning anomie

Blood running from my fingers
Tears running from my eyes
I'll never be satisfied
Track Name: Crawl
Black stains cake like swarming flies
At the corner of every mouth
While innocence gets trampled under
Charity and faith
It's not a question of hunger
But a fear of being left out
I'm not afraid to say sometimes I'd rather
Be a part of it

But if nothing else can save you
Then nothing ever will
When the sky light up again will we
Find you waiting still
Track Name: Living Dead
Human wreckage has the run of the streets
In an age when hell has become passe
Scars wear mouths that never speak
Just eat their own day after day
We ride ourselves and those spurs dig deep

We are the living dead
Numb before our time
Hands full of dust
Deaf dumb and blind
Like broken dolls
Sin Sewn inside
How far is defiled
From purified

Now we're all dolled up in indelible stains
As we confuse our memories for fate
Gather round and join in the shaming
Get the cameras rolling
Hungry mouths won't wait
We ride ourselves and those spurs dig deep
