Losing the truth in the distance spinning and out of control Enlist the orphan resistance No more dirt on your faces we don't leave any trace Ringing the words of the elders singing the songs of the dead digging the truth from the shelters No more dirt on our faces We come out of the night and into the light Now your words make your bones Sweep the fires from your homes All the lines on your faces we don't leave any trace Damn you fools you're wasted We come out of the night and into the light To find you, remind you, align you We come out of the light back to the night

Prototype 03:08
Sons and daughters without fathers lie in service to this machine Black light science, test tube violence, bring us closer to what it means We can build a prototype Never disregard it's appetite We can build a prototype You're too tired to feed it You will have to feed it Engine's turning, workers learning, hypnotized by the sounds from Above No more conscience, no more fingers, we keep building beautiful bombs We can build a prototype Will it turn on us and take control Always waiting in the corner, we can build a prototype You're too tired to feed it, you will have to feed it

The Monarch 03:36
Slippin' through your keyhole every night when you're so occupied by someone's heavy hands to bruise your secrets As the story lies unfolding under scolding wings I don't understand the things I'm feeling All these eyes they never roam beyond a jar that we call home sweet home Deceiving breathing through your air hole wont you feed me Spit me pretty words that you don't need You can put me on your shelf where I can be myself, see myself Slippin' through your keyhole every night when you're so occupied by someone's heavy hands to bruise your secrets You won't see me there pretending not to care about The other flies upon your wall You won't see me there pretending not to care about A butterfly upon your wall

Welcome to the queen of the apocalypse's dream to be forgotten soon Perfect in your imperfection as all the drugs in your collection are falling from the sky to catch your eye Although you've crawled across my ceiling the party girl, she isn't feeling well enough to dance with me through hell And if you're feeling incomplete from wasted time and losing sleep I'm tied onto a string around your finger Higher, always falling higher You set your world on fire once again smoking in your bed And in that pretty head all your roots are dead but I'll be there for you with an I.O.U. for Sunday And when she burns us down we'll be run all over town We're ordinary people tryin' to leave a mark on the world Unordinary people tryin' to leave a mark on the world Unordinary world

Rocket shells and stones for skipping In my mind this war is dripping Who knows the black holes like I know now Take me home Dear mr. resident, I am so afraid I am not an animal I am not a criminal Mothers, daughters how we all bleed Fill your cup with apologies Everything you want will build Everything you want will ill Everything you want will kill Everything you wanted

When you've finally found her secret you will tear that page away As you're promising to keep it you will make your getaway There was nothing in Rome, so I went home to find the place that gets further everyday Now our car's been broken in and our stereo is long gone And the more she tries to feel like home the more she feels so foreign There was something in Rome, but I went home to find the place that gets further everyday I used to climb your walls and lie up in your clouds I used to rain on you, but all you'd do is smile As you made your getaway There was something in Rome, but we went home to find the place that gets further everyday
7.
Where did it go Where ya think the money went Do you think it's heaven sent Tell me again You're rarin' to go You're taciturn and reticent The love you crave's the love you spent So tell me again You smell like a rose Inositol and innocence No alcohol or cigarettes So tell me again Where did it go
