Track Name: King Mannequin
you lost the pace car
and the miles you get aren’t getting you quite as far
what’s it take to breakdown
the mistakes that you make aren’t as dangerous when you slow down

fear is a road leading to something new

faster is comes, like a motor car towards you
you don’t run away, oh, well you never do
anchored in place the king mannequin won’t move

have you been waiting for it
are you belated in it
is it all moot
hey you’re moving up so did you get what you need
now that you’re out of the showroom and into the drivers seat

faster is comes, like a motor car towards you
you don’t run away, oh, well you never do
anchored in place the king mannequin won’t move

hand on the wheel, sensors in place
dummy is set, wall to the face

faster is comes, like a motor car towards you
you don’t run away, oh, well you never do
anchored in place the king mannequin won’t move
Track Name: The Hammer
In the bottomless ocean of space
there’s a drop in the lake
rain down, cover all the souls that you seek
letting them drown, letting them be weak

all the vengeance that anyone’s reaped
is not truly theirs to keep
it’s come down, the hammer that will ruin us all
leveling planes, quickening the fall

I’ll go but we don’t have to go out like that

in the memory of everyone’s fear
is a wishing to be near
from great jaws, the voices that will swallow us whole
echoes too loud, rings out of control
Track Name: The Big Show
Off the blindfold
loose the old ropes

join the big show

it takes to see to believe
we can see for you
belief is not what you need
just a hand to hold you closer

just a hand to hold you close
to hold your post
to be the most you can be
Track Name: Straight As An Arrow
bandages to keep in what’s inside you
therapy to help to get it out
what about the people that surround you
what you put in’s what you’re getting out
what does that tell you about yourself

I fall as straight as an arrow
as straight as an arrow when I fall

taught to be a bridge to understanding
acting like a wall to block it’s way
sinking like a boat under the arches
reaching for the hands you turned away
how did you not see today coming

dark thoughts bleed into black hearts
turning our fine arts into the sparest of parts

I fall as straight as an arrow
as straight as an arrow when I fall
