Break Up Break Down I drag my belly off the four walls blind the lizard once and for all Stare into the future running from the past running running fast nothing lasts forever Break up break down break me break out Broken teeth and rusted suit case don’t need a brand new shoe lace Brush away the sunshine hiding in the night hiding from the light nothing lasts forever Break up break down break me break out Scattered weather for all the things we owe They don’t remember us for all we know I drag my belly off the four walls blind the lizard once and for all Stare into the future running from the past running running fast nothing lasts forever Break up break down break me break out Written by Christian Nesmith Neztoons Publishing (BMI)

The Thin Blue Screen Don’t mistake me for yourself just pretend I’m someone else and I’ll be waiting I’m a shadow in the dark a paranoic superstar and I’ll be waiting Wrap yourself around a thin blue screen Maybe they wont hear you scream alone There’s a beast behind the wall it’s the demon in us all and it’s escaping Running from eventuality you cannot feel what you cant see Wrap yourself around a thin blue screen Maybe they wont hear you scream alone I’m all around but you don’t understand me unhand me You don’t realize who your messing with Guessing I’ll be twisting it bringing it to tears It’s clear the reason that I’m here keeps you living in fear Like a puppet on a string I will make you dance and sing Controlling you is easy, for me its easy, yeah it’s easy So leave well enough alone I’ll eat you out of house and home Controlling you is easy, for me its easy, yeah it’s easy I’m a master of a pawn you’re gonna miss me when I’m gone but I’ll be waiting Running from eventuality you cannot feel what you cant see Wrap yourself around the thin blue screen Maybe they wont hear you scream alone Written by Christian Nesmith Neztoons Publishing (BMI)

Smoke 04:26
Smoke Hazy hazy drives me crazy Makes me work and makes me lazy Sunny sunny ain't it funny What happened to all my money? Wait to wait pay to play Suddenly she spoke Can't you smell the smoke? Cloudy cloudy makes me rowdy Makes me sure and make me doubt it Baby baby don't say maybe What have you done for me lately? Wait to wait pay to play Suddenly she spoke Can't you smell the smoke? Sleazy sleazy make me queasy Why you always got to tease me? Bit by bit Line by line Piece by piece Feels so fine Wait to wait Pay to play Suddenly she spoke Can't you smell the smoke?

Forget You 03:47
Forget You I can't remember to forget you Whenever I look back I'm torn apart And it's amnesia that I lack I think I've seen your face before The mention of your name and my mind plays tug of war I don't now what I knew then And I don't realize that I can't do this again I can't remember to forget you Whenever I look back I'm torn apart And it's amnesia that I lack I can't remember to forget you I should only draw a blank But every time my memory comes rushing back Should've seen the writings on the wall The clues were all around but of course I forgot them all I jog the corners of my brain For some reminder that I'm very much insane I thought that my love was dead and gone I know you're not the only one You've got control I wasn't told that you would own me I can't remember to forget you Whenever I look back I'm torn apart And it's amnesia that I lack I can't remember to forget you I should only draw a blank But every time my memory comes rushing back Now what am I supposed to do When everything I see is reminding me of you I can't replace what hasn't gone I can't return to you if I cannot carry on What's here tomorrow is gone today Why can't your face just fade away I've come unglued, I've been tattooed I can't forget you I can't remember to forget you Whenever I look back I'm torn apart And it's amnesia that I lack I can't remember to forget you I should only draw a blank But every time my memory comes rushing back Written by Christian Nesmith Neztoons Publishing (BMI)

Big 05:00
Big I just wanted to thank you For taking the time Making me feel like I'm the one So Where are you going to Is it a dream Or all just a part of the master plan Take what you see and put it all together No you're not the only one Oh the spotlight burns You got your chance now take it It's amazing When you make it Big See It's all part of the showdown Standing in line Dropping a dime in the wishing well Now you got what you wanted Pulling the strings All of the pretty maids in a row Take what you see and put it all together No you're not the only one Oh the spotlight burns You got your chance now take it It's amazing When you make it Big Rock me off to sleep Knocks me off my feet Now you have the attitude And only you can make it Big for me I got a crush and I'm dying to make you I get a rush when you're up on the scene Electric chair and a bottle of hairdo Shove comes to push bottom line is you got what it... Take what you see and put it all together No you're not the only one Oh the spotlight burns You got your chance now take it It's amazing When you make it Big Written by Christian Nesmith Neztoons Publishing (BMI)

Scapegoat 04:19
Scapegoat There's nothing you can tell me I don't already know It's my best defense That's why I'm pleading guilty to a crime I might commit It's my only chance to escape my wrath I know it makes you cry but I need an alibi So I hang myself out to dry Tell the truth to lie I'm moving backwards, I blame myself 'Cause I'm my own Scapegoat, I'm in a rut I point the finger right at my self 'Cause I'm my own Scapegoat I'm off the hook Don't misunderstand me, I don't practice to deceive I just need some reprieve for this life I lead It's only smoke and mirrors when I tell you what you want to hear 'Cause I'm trying to get to there from here Now, isn't that clear? Don't make excuse for being a loser -- No! Don't want forgiveness for such a sickness -- Oh No! Eternal penance, eternal sentence -- Oh Yeah! I'll say I'm sorry but it won't be the last time An ounce my prevention is worth at least a pound of yours So here I go again. Will it ever end? Written by Christian Nesmith Neztoons Publishing (BMI)

The Walls Invincible Now what am I supposed to believe in? Somebody changed the face of God I'm staring through the eyes of anger Can't figure out just what I've lost All I know is that it don't make sense to me They found a hole in my suit of armor Put pressure on the weakest link The walls invincible come tumbling down Now what am I supposed to think? All I know is that it don't make sense to me All I know is that it don't make sense to me Me, I'm the only one who can face it Me I'm the only one who can change it See all the lonely ones who are crying We aren't the only one's who are dying now So take your Buddhas and your Bibles Take your Temples and your Shrines If that's what makes you do your killing Then stick 'em where the sun don't shine All I know is it don't make sense to me All I know is it makes no sense to me Me, I'm the only one who can face it Me I'm the only one who can change it Me, I'm the only one who can love you Me and the power in heaven above you See all the lonely ones who are crying We aren't the only one's who are dying now Written by Christian Nesmith Neztoons Publishing (BMI)
