01. Tired Climb

Music by Cope, McGinley, Pleasants
Lyrics by Cope, Pleasants
Keyed up, all tore up
Free from thought, walking backwards
Tranquil anxiety
Refraining from walking backwards
Reverse and rewind
Contemplate moving forward
Regrets indicate, moving forth is walking backwards

We tread a long time
On occasion, on the line
Swaying, weighing
Straying from this tired climb


02. Cheating Synergy

Music by Cope, McGinley, Pleasants
Lyrics by Cope, Pleasants
Loss of vision
Cheating synergy
Take me under
Bleeding, turning

Reasons for risk are endless

Take me under
Bleeding, turning
Loss of vision
Gripping energy


03. Drop Out

Music by Cope, McGinley, Pleasants
Lyrics by Cope, Pleasants
Tell yourself it's not worth knowing
Erase yourself and you'll find something

Truth that doesn't fit
A curse of inspiration
Try to stay afloat
Too much information
Bow and take an exit
Face vacant destination
Disappointment won't console
There is no celebration

Name I'm shaken
Blame I've taken

It's not alright
Because I'm dropping out
I'm telling you to count me out

Truth that doesn't fit
A curse of inspiration
Try to stay afloat
Too much information
Bow and take an exit
Face vacant destination
Disappointment won't console
There is no celebration


04. Crowded Road

Music by Cope, McGinley, Pleasants
Lyrics by Cope, Pleasants
Hey, listen...

A crowded road ends before it begins
Struggle to survive, hands try to grasp
If told like it is, who will listen?
A crowded road ends before it begins

[Repeat previous verse]

Pages and pages of rambling
Expectations when there are none
Tricks put to use
Traded, awaited
Abated, deflated
A crowded road ends before it begins


05. Don't Look Back

Music by Cope, McGinley, Pleasants
Lyrics by Cope, Pleasants
Pictures of my youth ask if i've become what I wanted to

Keep moving, don't look back

Moments of challenged clarity
Distorted effect on reality

Keep moving, don't look back


06. Distance Closing In

Music by Cope, McGinley, Pleasants
Lyrics by Cope, Pleasants
Let down again
Walls fade away
Distance closing in
Another time delay

Focus my eyes
Never ending space
Listen to lies
Last in the race
The dream of gold
I've heard before
From a tale once told
Was bought and sold

We chase pretty lies
Devotion starts to die
My step is off, when will I fly?

And we chase these pretty lies


07. To Forget

Music by Cope, McGinley, Pleasants
Lyrics by Cope, Pleasants
To be denied, not justified
Can't decide which way to turn
You're fucking with my mind and taking all my time
And yet, I do it to you

What you're doing ain't right
When I fight the time
And I hold it to you
Keep the fire going with the burn you give
But I just want to forget

I try to clear my mind
Trying to read your kind
Inside this feeling ain't right
If you care to know, I find it all the same
And now I'm moving on


08. Forsaken

Music by Cope, McGinley, Pleasants
Lyrics by Cope, Pleasants
Assume you're not forsaken
Remote point is already taken
Changing seasons, bending is hard to reason

Sundown window to ponder head down
Tripping, breathing
Awaiting countdown

Bleeding wonder, cutting life span
Assume you're not forsaken


09. Spiral Shadow

Music by Cope, McGinley, Pleasants
Lyrics by Cope, Pleasants
I'm settled in fear
Why? How?
Is death near?

Broken and so uncertain

Grounded foresight
Crowded hindsight
Ground too bitter
Stumbling center
Taken, continue


10. Back And Forth

Music by Cope, McGinley, Pleasants
Lyrics by Cope, Pleasants
Try and concentrate
Brain is melting
Walking in a daze
Security of isolation

Always shifting, back and forth

Blueprint within
Light to be switched
Voices unspoken
Sounds unheard

Always shifting, back and forth

Calm, but no peace
Race without a prize
Youth faded too fast
Reset this life

Always shifting, back and forth

We all fade out


11. Dust

Music by Cope, McGinley, Pleasants
Lyrics by Cope, Pleasants
All the blank faces walking around us
They mean nothing
Candles in the dark
Every speck of dust in this universe, floating around us
Candles in the dark

Every speck of dust in this universe, floating around us
Candles in the dark
Every mistake I've made, I would make again
If that is what it took to be where I am
