best stand aside best let the pros clean this one up best guess is this will take some time boy this is bad yes, yes, there were warning signs but, I didn't think you would burst into flames so, I'm stepping away from the light stepping away from the light stepping away from the light so, I had the sole the sole responsibility to block the door from whence you came you through a fit you read your will, I knew you would but, I didn't think you would burst into flames so, I'm stepping away stepping away from stepping away from stepping away from the light stepping away from stepping away from stepping away from the light stepping away

Dust Storm 04:40
so out of love now dove in a dust storm can barely remember my name been fighting for so long trying to break through but, nothing seems to change it burns when I breathe in so, I’m keeping my head down but, I want to know that this fight is a good fight is it worth believing that it’s gonna be alright is it worth believing ‘cause I don’t know if it is tell me why if it is tell me why if it is I’ve kept this close to my heart here all this time but, it’s turned my heart hollow swallowed all light and it’s working its way to my mind it burns when I breathe in so, I’m keeping my head down but, I want to know that this fight is a good fight is it worth believing that it’s gonna be alright is it worth believing ‘cause I don’t know if it is tell me why if it is better yet, why don’t you show me better yet, why don’t you show me better yet, why don’t you show me better yet, why don’t you show me is it worth believing that this fight is a good fight is it worth believing that it’s gonna be alright is it worth believing it burns when I breathe in so, I’m keeping my head down

first the faith fades joints begin to rust rust it's just in the beginning you say you'll adjust trust me... when this fascination you feel with the fallen falls away and it will one day you won't want to stay here here in this godforsaken place please just go away keep the lines tangled please just go away sweep them under the rug please just go away don't let the message get mangled please just go away sleep snug as a bug yes, I'd like my faith back this is not what we discussed discussed it's just a plan planted in a field of dust dust I can hear your voice now as if you're about to bust bust it's just as I had feared friend and now you'll never trust trust me... when this fascination you feel with the fallen falls away and it will one day you won't want to stay here here in this godforsaken place please just go away keep the lines tangled please just go away sweep them under the rug please just go away don't let the message get mangled please just go away sleep snug as a bug

The Price 03:32
the morning moans and complains the vultures feed upon our hope's remains clouds move in as we disperse wounded or worse is this the price we pay for trying to find our own way is this the price we pay we shuffle back in our shame careful not to stray too far from the mainframe at this point it's best to stay calm that's what we've been trying to do to rise above, get along is this the price we pay for trying to find our own way is this the price we pay is this the price we pay for sleeping in on Sunday is this the price we pay isn't it nice we pay we shuffle back we shuffle back in our shame careful not to stray too far from the mainframe we shuffle back we shuffle back in our shame careful not to stray too far from the mainframe is this the price we pay is this the price we pay is this the price we pay is this the price we pay for trying to find our own way for sleeping in on Sunday is this the price that we pay

Process 05:20
it was 3am in a restless room when you came to life and the look that you gave me blew me away there's so much I can't seem to process there's so much I can't seem to process there's so much to this dream there's so much to this dream I don't know how you breathe I don't know how you feel I don't know how you came to us but, the more words fail the more I feel free there's so much I can't seem to process there's so much I can't seem to process there's so much to this dream there's so much so much so much there's so much I can't seem to process and it's okay with me

they keep beating up one another they keep beating up one another everything’s hard and way too easy everything you find simple may just be tough for someone other than you yourself but, then again this line for instance can be understood completely unless you want it to mean something else and there I am sitting in the center of the middle stirring in the gray paint in with the colors that collide watching the extremes they keep beating up one another seems everybody’s always pushing you to pick a side everything’s clear ‘til you have a look around nothing is clean if you search deep inside the fabric but, here again your thoughts for example if your mother knew I believe she’d think you a lunatic everything’s right everything’s wrong this is one of my opinions but, that don’t mean I’ll always agree and here again my logic is a perfect sample for although strange it makes pretty good sense to me they keep beating up one another they keep beating up one another
