MISERY Red light pulses to a shadow beat Painted faces intimate torment underneath Inner scars on display…lipstick…lingerie Shuffle over to me I can hear her say Come on baby Close your eyes with me Come on baby Dance the Misery Come on baby Look…but don’t see Come on baby Dance the Misery Blacklight girl with apathetic pout I don’t care what you’re all about Check your melodrama at the door It’s your pale flesh that I’m coming for Come on baby Close your eyes with me Come on baby Dance the Misery Come on baby Look…but don’t see Come on baby Dance the Misery Baby I’m not as hollow as I seem I too am a pariah dying in my dreams Maybe we can fix each other if we play this right Or maybe not but at least we’ve got tonight Come on Baby Close your eyes with me Come on baby Dance the Misery…

SICK OF IT Blue and red and blazing lies Buzz like conniving flies Blasting any hope of peace No surrender no release Waiting still for something true What I thought I always knew Ripped away with all my dreams Mundane and fantastic schemes And I’m left Sick of it all I’m sick of it Sick of it all I’m sick of it Once the young boy trusted Expectations unadjusted Everything to fall in place Life unfurl with practiced grace Met at every turn deception Disappointment misconception Loathing burns within without Nothing grows throughout this drought And I’m left Sick of it all I’m sick of it Sick of it all I’m sick of it If the most dear truths come to fruition Little lies just fall away But without any dispensation Night succumbs not to day Think that I don’t understand That I can’t fathom the plan I only wished to ignore What I know's in store... Blue and red and blazing lies Buzz like conniving flies Blasting any hope of peace Leaving me with no release And I’m sick of it all...

SHALLOW Make it shiny make it new Clean and pretty through and through Make it stylish make it pop Make us think it never stops Doesn’t matter if its real What’s the point—we don’t feel Only matters if it’s now We’ll discard it anyhow We’ll discard it anyhow... Why must everything seem shallow? Why does everything seem shallow? Help me deviate my course This empty joy and remorse Herald me a truer true Something beyond the newest new There is a light upon the hill Ageless golden holy still Can we find our way to thee Not be seduced by what we see?
