Track Name: Where's Your Self Control?
You can't give what you don't have,
Don't make promises that you can't back,
You leave disgust and broken bones in your wake,
So when the sun sets
How does it feel to be alone?

Can you push the envelope?
Break down the walls?
In this situation can you ignore the call?
But now the moment's past
And I've seen the climax,
Where's you self control?
Yeah, where's your self control?

You can hide behind a smile,
I gave you an inch and you took a mile,
Compulsive habits haunt you
And you pray,
You will face yourself,
You will fall down,

Can you push the envelope?
Break down the walls?
In this situation can you ignore the call?
But now the moment's past
And I've seen the climax,
Where's your self control?
Yeah, where's your self control?

Are you satisfied with what you've brought?
Happy that you have what you sought?
Is this one worth the price you pay?
Now you've thrown us all away,
There's nothing more to say,
Are you satisfied with what you've brought?
Happy that you have what you sought?
Is this one worth the price you pay?
Now you've thrown us all away,
There's nothing more to say,
Track Name: Serotonin
I didn't come back to see you,
I didn't come crawling on my knees,
There's only one thing left for me to say,
Give me back what you stole from me,
Give me back what you stole from me,
Give me back what you stole from me,

You made me feel like a fool in front of everyone,
You made me feel like the bastard son,
Now I can't sleep right at night,
Nothing you could say could make this right,
Nothing you could say could make this right,
Nothing you could say could make this right,

Your name burns on the tip of my tongue,

Give me back what you stole from me,
Give me back what you stole from me,
Give me back what you stole from me,
Give me back what you stole from me,
Track Name: Incense
She knows a loser, yeah well,
Takes all of her time, yeah well,
She's disconnected, yeah well,
I'm pro-rejection, yeah well,
We blend so well like Siamese twins
Forever attached at the wrists,
Incense, incense,
Make sure we take time trading turns,
Our past mistakes are lessons learned,
Incense, incense,

I am sure about one thing,
That one thing and nothing more,
I am sure that I am a loser,
No one else and nothing more,

A myriad of broken hearts,
Scorned lovers paths destined to cross,
Incentive, incentive,
Cut the ties with what we know,
Break the silence with a stone,
Vignette, vignette,

I am sure about one thing,
That one thing and nothing more,
I am sure that I am a loser,
No one else and nothing more,

I am a loser, yeah well,
She can't disprove it, yeah well,
Enjoy the silence, yeah well,
Beat off or find it, yeah well,
I'm fairly certain that I'm confused,
I've been hit hard now I'm black and blue,
Incense, incense,
There are a thousand ways to lie,
Been shown them all,
Every alibi,
Incense, incense,
Incense, incense,
Track Name: Accept the Change
Where've you been hiding?
I haven't seen you for days,
Lost what we knew
When you got lost in the game,
I know it's the first time
But do you know how to act?
Clinging won't get you anywhere, man,
Now there are so many watching from afar,
Patiently waiting,
They want you to fall,
And as for me?
Well I guess I don't care,
I can't make any promises,
I may not be there,
If only you knew what they say about you,
If only you knew what they say about you,

Hey, I'm waiting here,
I will never disappear,
Yeah, I know I'm fading,
But I will never disappear,

And I will readily accept the change,
It doesn't hurt too bad,
But I can see your fate,
You will lose each other's grace,

She keeps looking down on me,
My patience has slowly disappeared,
And you don't notice us,
Now your friends have slowly disappeared,

And I will readily accept the change,
It doesn't hurt too bad,
But I can see your fate,
You will lose each other's grace,
Blinded by the other's face,
Keep believing this will never end,
Hopes and dreams you're cherishing
Always crash and burn before you wake,
Track Name: In Some Other World
She stares beyond the sun,
Mocking everyone,
She feels it freely,
Then why does she feel so sad?
Untouched by anyone,
She wonders what they see,
She walks across a beach,
Covered in broken dreams,
She can't escape uncertainty,

Does this silence bother you?

If I'm as empty as I feel,
You're as hollow, That's for sure,
Wonder why I've run away,
Look in the mirror then you'll know,
I'm not losing sleep over you
Or the things we used to do,

I stand on a cratered pier,
Lost in thought,
Promises keep me tied to the ground,
Eyes traverse the sky,
Searching for a sign
To confirm I'm alive,
I walk this empty street,
These hours spent alone,
I could care but I'm not sure what for,

Does this silence bother you
As much as it bothers me?

If I'm as empty as I feel,
You're as hollow, That's for sure,
Wonder why I've run away,
Look in the mirror then you'll know,
I'm not losing sleep over you
Or the things we used to do,
If you're as callous as you seem,
I'm as indifferent, That's for sure,
So upsetting in hindsight,
Contradict myself I know,
There's no time to waste sunlight,
If this is it then it's meant to be so,

If you're as callous as you seem,
I'm as indifferent, That's for sure,
So upsetting in hindsight,
Contradict myself I know,
There's no time to waste sunlight,
If this is it then it's meant to be so,
