Track Name: Thoughts & Prayers
Who's your god where is your love
Down below or up above
You found yourself right here as you are
Clenching your fists feeling your scars

Fight through the waves
Beat back your brow
Need to be saved and prayers aren't enough right now
Why can't your thoughts do more than talk
And if your thoughts and prayers aren't enough,
don't need them anyhow

This time it's gonna be different blissfully ignorant
Give me a sign show me that you're there
When all that we wish for and all that we need
Is silenced by a conscience in slow atrophy

Stay in the dark as you kneel down to pray
State of the art for the sad shocked and amazed
Still in the dark as you kneel down and pray

Fight through the waves
Beat back your brow
Need to be saved and prayers aren't enough right now
Why can't your thoughts do more than talk
And if your thoughts and prayers aren't enough,
donate them anyhow
Track Name: Full Blood Moon
Don't look behind because they're coming to get ya
A pack of zombies with their cameras on
Try to make a moment with some instant nostalgia
Feed me Seymour, play my favorite song

What can you do
Get a good view
To cry at the moon

C-c-culture high-jacked monstrosities
Takin' queues from a tv reality
Steeple burnin' people watchin' evil celebrities
Mystify, Hypnotize take your identity
Shop full of horrors honey
Oogie Boogie cause ya found a sale
A soul consuming obsession with grooming
You oughta not but I know you will

What can ya do
Get a good view
To cry at the moon
Track Name: Darker Still
So tense you can hardly stand it
Keep on damning our circumstances
Can't keep tryin' to understand it
Ya find no method in all this madness
No one said it'd be easy to fail to succeed
Or to tell what's for sale or for free
And make it seem like you got it figured out
No one really has it all figured out

Can't stand the thought you lost all control
It's like a nightmare baby where you're wakin' up all alone

Too close for comfort just short of the edge
And you're about to spill over take a big deep breath
Oh you think it's bad now, think you got your fill
So many shades to go it's getting darker still

Can't stand the thought you lost all control
You're like a time bomb tickin' and your just about ready to blow
Where do we go, where do we go from here
When all we have left are our darkest fears

Can't stand the thought you lost all control
Move around through the darkness like you know where to go
Know where to go, No where to go from here
All we have left is our darkest fear
Track Name: Magical Thinking
We're all divided it's just part of the plan I suppose
No one's invited they weren't comin' around and you know
The more you say the less you do and you failed at that too
When your world comes down, who will cry for you?

Don't get excited no one gets a free pass to be wrong
When in fact you had the right answers all along
We'd be delighted to find you have a curious mind
When the world falls down you won't act so blind

Magical thinking won't save us now
We're all in the same boat and we're going down
They're all around you can't see the signs
You're just too in love, with the lie

We're all entitled little monsters that can't be redeemed
Unpopular then but now we're picking up steam
In a world gone mad, all the crazy you see
Got souls for sale and some vacancies

Magical thinking won't save us now
We're all in the same building as it burns to the ground
They're all around you can't see the signs
Still head over heels in love

Twenty four hours of hate everyday of the week
Try to stay informed not turn into a freak
If the world is ending do you want to know
Why do you want to know, why do we have to know
Everything all at once all the time every day I can't
