Track Name: The Angel Inside of You
Oh, baby
It's been so long since we talked
That I can't even remember the last thing we talked about
But I still remember how it felt to hear so much resentment in your voice
And it's been so long since we fought about
How we got nothing to to talk about
I've almost convinced myself it's all noise

I was just your toy

I care about you more now more than you ever cared about me
And it feels like I've been whispering that over and over in my own ear
For at least a century

We weren't meant to be
But you knew you meant so much to me
I tried to downplay your sexuality
You were so pretty
I could've waited an eternity
But I don't blame you for eventually needing to get away from me
That's fair
I shouldn't have tried to make you fill the void
I always made you so annoyed
You always made me so jealous
I used to give you presents
Just to let you know I cared
And every one in a while
I'd say something stupid so you'd give me a smile
Just to let me know I'm real
I loved our wild little schemes
I still want to give you everything you need
I want you to feel the way I feel
I want to give you all my seed
But all you ever give me
is five minutes in a dream

I know I hurt you
Hurts me too
still hurts me every single time you find someone new
You gave me fear, anxiety, tears
and cigarettes when I was broke
I gave you tears, lies, bad vibes
and the first cigarette you ever smoked
I gave you an addiction
because I wanted you to be addicted to me
Like I was addicted to you
But I couldn't afford your love and love is never free
Now all you ever give me
is five minutes in a dream

And baby all you ever give me
Is five minutes in a dream
Yeah, all you ever give me
Is five minutes in a dream

Why visit like this?
Five blissful minutes
Entranced by your ethereal image
Isn't enough to explain where the light went
You left me lifeless
I spent all day craving you until I passed out from exhaustion
And you arrived when the night did
With all your devices
Your timing is perfect like you look once you're all did up under the lights
On the pedestal I always, always put you on
And as soon as I begin imagining this fantasy will last
You're gone
I used to wanna fight like cats and dogs
I'd stay awake until dawn
Learning all the words to your favorite songs
And it all felt worth it because I thought I would love you forever
But I was wrong
I thought I loved you just the way you were
But I was wrong
I didn't want you
I wanted the angel inside you
I didn't need you
I needed the angel inside you
I didn't want you
I wanted what's inside of you
I didn't need you
I needed what's inside of you
I didn't want you
There's an angel inside of you
I didn't need you
There's an angel inside of you
I don't want you
I want the angel inside you
I don't need you
I need the angel inside you
I don't want you
I want what's inside of you
I don't need you
I need what's inside of you
I don't want you
There's an angel inside of you
I don't need you
There's an angel inside of you
And I don't want you
I only what's inside of you
And I don't love you
I only love what's inside of you
I don't love you
There's an angel inside of you
And I don't love you
I I love what's inside of you
I don't love you
There's an angel inside of you

I don't want you any more
You're a filthy little whore
I don't love you any more
Just leave me on the floor
Leave my corpse to rot
Cuz I gave you all I got
can't give anything else
I can't even help myself
Thought you were heaven sent
Instead I only loved what you represent

There's an angel inside you
Tore my pride in two
Couldn't be your friend
Now we'll never speak again
Track Name: Road to Nowhere / Wind
I'm on a journey to be heard
People used to tell me you can't hurt me with your words
Are you sure?
Desert the theatre of the absurd
Love is for the birds
I've been cured of that desire
While I preferred to burn
Inspired by the fires
So tired
Vison blurred
Try speaking thru barbed wire and see if your speech isn't slurred
There's a choir in heaven
Assuring me the situation is dire
But what's worse
The prophecy or the curse?
My body was public property at first
Till the odysee was properly disbursed
Immersed headfirst
Into my birth reversed
There's no point reliving your misgivings
When your head is spinning with thirst
Dead
The end
Beginning to comprehend
Most men cannot defend their creations
They befriend desperation
And burn like cremation from the start
They descend into desolation
I turn isolation into real art
inspiration comes from my steel heart
The congregation gathers to hear me so they can feel smart
Though one day they will attempt to peel me apart
I'm not exempt from the grating hell of reality
Casualties still feel sensuality
Where once was a soul that failed me
Now lies only a cold black cavity
Never to be filled in by human emotion
I see the future in slow motion
Notions deeper then oceans
I seek the means to an end
And achieve it with no commotion
Leave the comfort of home behind
What you dream of is only a stone's throw in kind
Blinded by cold
No status quo defined
Most are confined
To limited lives
When they can't describe what's on their mind
And I?
I depicted the sickest images of hell and heaven combined
Inclined to grab life by the horns and swarm it
you think there's nothing more to find in the storm?
Misinformed
Get out of the warmth of your dorm ya damn conformist

My brain stay insulated
You all do the same thing every day like your syndicated
I look out from inside the blizzard and see that I'll never be integrated
This is the illustration of my point
Still waiting to be vindicated
I'm trying to escape the simulated conversation
I can't take it
The hatred, the fakeness
Makes me wanna break shit
And make outrageous statements
Makes me think when you go famous the brain quits
And to me
That's what shame is

I might be on a road to nowhere
If so I'll take it alone
I don't care, my hope froze
Encased the cold

I said I might be on a road to nowhere
If so I'll take it alone
I don't care, my hope froze
Encased the cold

I know I'm alive because I can feel the wind
Still blowin'
look at the world I'm in
Still going
I burn up my sins
And smoke memories
I throw empty bottles
At the homes of my old enemies
I stay in doors for days
And move on when I have the energy
I stay healthy somehow
Except for the lethargy
scuffle up Cheetos
And duck jeopardy
Treachery is unavoidable
I still exploit it tho
Ice cold
It's this again
Poor excuse for a citizen
Lack disciple
I could have sworn I heard a voice
but it's the wind

I might be on a road to nowhere
If so I'll take it alone
I don't care, my hope froze
Encased the cold

I said I might be on a road to nowhere
If so I'll take it alone
I don't care, my hope froze
Encased the cold
Track Name: The Bad Guy
Been vilified for a while
Look in my eyes, you'll find no denial
This goes out to everyone I ever lied to
I became the bad guy just for you

Felt like I been vilified
And demonized
They think i can't act civilized
I felt victimized
In this sad life we can't all be idolized
Some are bound to be spited
We can't all be invited
You could try to deny what's inside you
Mad times
Striving for the things money can't buy
But one day you're gonna realize
We all got a part to play
And I'm the bad guy

I accepted my fate
Been rejected, no hate
So many are subjected to suffering with no escape
Pain is to be expected, oh great
Men are filled with millions of imperfections
Which if left neglected
Will teach you a lesson
The hard way
and if you're trying to lessen the aggression
My suggestion is to start today
We all got a part to play
and I'm the bad guy

Look at me today, I'm the fat guy
Look at me tomorrow, I'm the bald guy
Look at me yesterday, never gave a fuck
Probably never will
So what?

So I'll never be commended
Instead alway condemned
I didn't intend to offend
Everyone I ever befriended
Through desperate agendas
Guess I'm demented
How splendid
People feel better about themselves when i'm around
How transcendent
Sometimes I pretend I'm one of them
Still seeking vengeance
Unable to kick this penchant
For wearing smoke in and around my throat like a pendant
But If I found a dollar on the ground I'd spend it
On a cigarette
Which will make me content until the end of this sentence

Yes, I covet flesh
Yes, I get death threats
I'm depressed and detested
I'm a testament to excess
I'm excrement
I congest and oppress and infect and and repress
My intents to molest
I've been told I'm awful, evil, terrible, amoral and a pest
And yet I remain unimpressed
Yes, I'm the bad guy
Track Name: Walls
I see the sun set
And wonder where the day went
Some say as long as you're having a good time that's time well spent
I try to live my life to the fullest and have no regrets
But that state of mind might change yet
Because I can't let
The most fulfilling thing I do all day be when I get
My ass out of bed and go outside to smoke a cigarette
I dread facing the people I respect
Seeing how much my negativity affects
Their goodhearted gestures I reject
I would resurrect my values if I knew how to
I brought my self down, I was bound to
I looked in the mirror the other day
And said I don't even want to be around you
but I cant go on without you
And I don't know what to do
Sure is a pity feeling blue
Not enough dollars in my pocket to change my mood
Oh, by the way, I'm addicted to drugs to
Hey, maybe I'm screwed
Maybe things'll never improve
And I'm suck with this bad attitude
But if that is a true claim I'll take it in stride
And turn my guilty shame into filthy pride
So far life has been a pretty shitty ride
But I did all right considering I didn't even try
Track Name: The Irreversible Nature of Time
Life isn't fair
You learn that day one
It's all too much to bear by the time that day's done
You can hear time tick in the beat of the drum
Or watch it burn from the heat of the sun
you can taste time fly from the tip of your tongue
Or ten years later when your still coughing up lungs
You can smell time rotting when you live in a slum
But you notice it the most
When it's crawling slow
While you're alone and cold and numb
If it wan't for the irreversible nature of time I'd redo everything I ever done
If it wan't for the irreversible nature of time I'd redo everything I ever done

You can lick your wounds which I do
Or go looney tunes which I did
But you're still inching away from the womb
Into the waiting arms of some puny gloomy tomb if there's room for you
Which there is
I wish they'd stick me in the ground naked and careless
Like when I came into the world before I knew what fair is
Villains are just victims that are no longer children
So, you stepped into the system
Expecting to find a rhythm
Without realizing you were imprisoned
On the wrong side of the prism
They say alcoholism is curable
But autism isn't
Neither is capitalism
Our new religion
where christians join hands with sinners
To manipulate women and children
If you'll pardon the euphemism
Who took the youths ambition?
I used to be a musician
I used to perform compositions
Now I'm more like an oral mortician
Embalming the mortal remains of my morality
With more discipline
Might as well get it off my chest now before we're senior citizens

No more heartwarming normality for me
My inner war's first casualty's now long deceased
After ego death arrogance increased
Burning sexuality just took a short leave
Until the morning when I force-feed
Reality down my throat till I bleed
At some point in time we've all been deceived
Grieved
Then reconfigured the fundamentals of what we believe
Hiding beneath the sheets for weeks
Time leaps forward
But your progress creeps
We're splitting at the seams
Awake yet asleep
The cost of living is far too steep
Sometimes the irreversible nature of time makes me want to weep
Weep, weep
Sometimes the irreversible nature of time makes me want to weep
Weep, weep

Fast forward the bad moments and rewind the good times
If I could
Skip the breakup
Play my first kiss and pause it
Yeah, that would be good
Facebook can't keep track of everyone I un-friended
Burnt bridges can be rebuilt
But these wounds will not be mended
I used to be mature for my age
Now I'm just demented
Coulda been prevented
Too late to turn back
Ain't even worth the mention
It would've all faded to black
But I gave me an extension
The irreversible nature of time will get me eventually
Retained every shred of shame I ever gained
Never say I didn't pay my penalty
I only experience happiness seldomnly
I don't know where my heart is
I wish I was still sellin' weed
Cuz the irreversible nature of time will be the death of me regardless
And I'm still smoking' weed
cuz eternity ain't shit to me
You won't live to see
it's mystery
Gosh darn it
