Track Name: You'll Pay Someday
1st Verse

Self-absorbed, self-enamored
I know I can't live without her
She's the face of extravagance and waste
Just give her one more taste

1st Chorus

She's the queen of the castle
She's got the tightest of assholes
Someday your money's all gonna blow away
Yeah, you'll pay someday

2nd Verse

Not a lover, not a fighter
She's hoin' for the boldest of liars
Slave to the habit, bound by Vuitton chains
Someday you're gonna pay

Bridge

You tried to buy your happiness
You found out it's better steal it
I wish you all so well, so well upon you're way
But someday you're gonna pay

2nd Chorus

Neither slave nor a master
Just another bourgeois bastard
Off with their heads, put them all out on display
Yeah, you'll pay someday
You'll pay someday
Track Name: Completely
Verse 1

I'm gonna wait here forever
Gonna wait for my name to be called
Back where I started
Knowing i've seen it all
It still looks the same
You all, all look the same
And it shakes me so completely

Verse 2

It's on and on, and back again
The road reveals its final dead end
And it shakes me so completely
I'm gonna wait here forever
Gonna wait for the empire to fall
And it shakes me so completely

2nd Chorus

Rewind, reverse, rewrite, rehearse

Bridge

Your eyes will speak and they will lie
Time will tell what you choose to hide
Sleep away those empty days
Save your breath
You've got nothing to say…nothing to say at all

3rd Chorus

Rewind, reverse, rewrite, rehearse
Track Name: Mending Fences
1st Verse

Rest in peace, baby boom
Wave goodbye to your dreams
Happy birthday, heroin
Congratulations, amphetamines

1st Pre-chorus

I'm not so good at mending fences
I'd rather burn them down
I wish you could see me smile
When I bury you, when I put you in the ground

You're not my problem,
My cross to bear, not anymore

Chorus

You should know your days are numbered
Fraudulent, usurped the crown
Inadequates always hunger for power
The fish will rot from the head straight down

2nd Verse

What do you believe in?
Where do you stand?
You're a mongrel dog
With your head in the sand

Who holds your leash?
Who pulls your chain?
What's at stake here?
What will you gain?

2nd Pre-chorus

You still think you're all alone
Your experience is singular
No perspective, no objective
Inside your head - that's all you've ever known

You're not my problem,
My cross to bear, not anymore

2nd Chorus

You should know your days are numbered
Fraudulent, usurped the crown
Inadequates always hunger for power
The fish will rot from the head straight down

Bridge

A pariah is playing messiah
I won't try, I won't pretend,
I'll never claim that we're friends
I won't embrace a fantasy,
I'll disappoint my enemies
30 years down the drain,
Spinning in circles, caught in the rain,
Caught out in the rain

3rd Verse

Still no good at mending fences
I'd rather burn them down
I wish you could see me smile
When I bury you
When I put you in the ground

You're not my problem
My cross to bear, not anymore

3rd Chorus

You should know your days are numbered
Fraudulent, usurped the crown
Inadequates always hunger for power
The fish will rot from the head straight down
From the head straight down
