Track Name: Castaways
Lover save me, please stay with me
I've gone overboard and I'm drifting
They come quickly, kiss and kill me
I couldn't take no more so are you with me?

The water is so warm, it's not far to the shore
dive in, swim with me we'll be castaways watching the ship go down

and yes maybe, I'm just crazy but isn't that why you love me
so come on baby

the water is so warm it's not far to the shore dive in swim with me we'll be castaways watching the ship go down.

swim with me
Track Name: Conspiracy!
Fool me once, shame. Fool me again, I'm to blame.
I'm not lonely or insane. Conspiracy is real.

Liar liar, lone gunman in Dallas, yeah
Jet fuel fires? Demolitions look like this.
conspiracy is real. Greys in the wheat fields.

Blood for your black gold. War of worlds for control
I'm not crazy, I'm fucking angry.
Cause you lied to me, talked down to me.
I'm not cynical. I am logical.
Track Name: The Hundredth
In their minds they thought they knew better
oh the lies they tried to sell us
Good intentions always pave the path
that's littered with the dead

99 wait for the one to come around
99 wait until the hundredth awakes

So these few wide-eyed monkeys creep
The herd still fast asleep while shepherds and wolves count sheep
Soon a trigger will spark a light and they all will see
Track Name: Rex

Where were you?
I called and prayed
Til I was blue
Where were you?

Messages they said you left
I want to hear it from your lips
Rex, my lord so tremendous is her roar
It filters through

Today I come to meet you
No gates, no harps, only silence
And the dark, oh the dark

Where were you? Oh Rex
Track Name: Black Blood
Coalescence of ailments in a violent collision
Could it manifest forty days of rain?
Poisoned by drinking her blood
and drown in her nourishing flood

Don't say you didn't see this coming
you consumed, you soaked up this doom
The bull, the bear, charging, the wealth
was a room full of nothing
The unprepared perpetually scared
The love misdirect from brother to paper
from lover to fame, fortune to shame

So fire the guns, push forward
Grow, bloat this ego
Distribute the death, spread the wealth
Call it progress
Black Blood in the viens of this broken body
My addiction, look how it serves me

I am one with my love now
so drink me children
