there’s controlled chaos hidden up your sleeve, checkmates and setups waiting to be unleashed. over & over & over & over you’re feeding us LIES on a lure. the sky isn’t falling in again, the wolves aren’t at the door. make us look left, make us look right, you’re somewhere in between, hiding in plain sight while the decoys conceal your LIES tumble down the rabbit hole we fall, tangled in your tripwire we crawl on hands and knees. over & over & over & over you’re feeding us LIES on a lure. the sky isn’t falling in again, the wolves aren’t at the door. make us look left, make us look right, you’re somewhere in between, hiding in plain sight while the decoys conceal your LIES when will the guilty hang? come on, let’s stretch a rope. burn the witches at the stake and feed our bloodlust. CUT THE THROAT of the SLEEPING GIANT

the die is cast, now let’s begin. follow the crooked path until its end. there you’ll find a shipwreck. read between the lines that hide trapdoors along the way. feelings, tired of feelings, i wanna throw them all away. bury the hatchet in my shadow, put it to rest and walk away. all by myself. i’d rather be all by myself than under the thumb of a hand working someone else’s plan, when i’ve got my own. i’d rather be all by myself. the clock is spinning, the walls are grinning, time is slipping away. the hourglass thinning, is our ship sinking? calling all hands on deck! hollowed-out faces are staring at me, their heads are on fire but they’re all too busy ranting from soapboxes, their chorus of LIES and they’ve all got NOTHING to say… all by myself. i’d rather be all by myself than under the thumb of a hand working someone else’s plan, when i’ve got my own. i’d rather be all by myself

the walls are caving in, vultures are circling, and it can’t end like this, oh no. chemtrails in the sky, under the drones all-seeing eye. the war for your mind is on. take a look around, what do you see? everywhere i turn there’s someone telling me how to think & feel, what to say & do. oh say can you see?  T H O U G H T  P O L I C E  what if everything you’ve ever learned, everything you’ll ever see, was dialed in by design to hold your mind? they poured out all their LIES inside, filled it with fear and prying eyes, and now there’s nothing left ahead of us but dark skies. but it’s all white noise. it’s all white noise. teacher taught me compromise, how to run away instead of how to stand and hold my ground. now that ground’s above me, i’m below, guess it’s just another day. in the end we’re all just straw men anyway. take a look around, what do you see? everywhere i turn there’s someone telling me how to think & feel, what to say & do. oh say can you see?

you better run, run and hide. cause what you fear the most has now come to life. will you hold your ground or be cut down? what if everything you know, everything you see, everything you’ve learned is a LIE? we’re reaping what you sow, from the soil that we seed. you’re in a prison without walls, alone in time. now you hold your form, but soon you won’t. in the space between the spaces, like clockwork, there we’ll be, with our arms around it all. behind the wall of fog we’re pulling all of the strings. behind the wall of fog, under these dark skies

the heart beats between the head and hands. the clock ticks, empties the hourglass. the time has come, the moment has arrived. the line is drawn, get off the fence and pick a side. do you hold the hidden hand? cause there’s an iron fist inside that velvet glove. do you understand that a line has been drawn? we say no. we’re dragging you back to the bottom. way down below, where you belong. dragging you back to the bottom. under my heel, way down below. WEAVING SPIDERS COME NOT HERE. save your tangled web for someone else’s step. go run and tell your leader that we’re here. we’ve come to burn the village down, burn it to the ground. do you hold the hidden hand? cause there’s an iron fist inside that velvet glove. do you understand that a line has been drawn? we say no. we’re dragging you back to the bottom. way down below, where you belong. dragging you back to the bottom. under my heel, way down below

passed the devil’s gate today. thought I heard him say “what you got to lose? let’s play a little push & pull, give & take. boy, how bad you wanna sing the blues?” they’re all fork-tongued LIES further down we’re drawn, when we fail to learn to let it go, let it slide, let it roll, let it ride, let it fall away. they’re all fork-tongued LIES and empty promises. don’t you, don’t you fall for it. you gotta draw the line, gotta stand apart from who and just what you are. we’re grains of sand in time, drifting through the world. they’re all fork-tongued LIES and empty promises. don’t you, don’t you fall for it

there’s a LIE in the hearts of men. it says, “there’s never enough to go around, so grab and take all you can. and even when your cup is full still pour, til wine runs down the side. cause you never know when the drought will come. you never know, and you’re never gonna know.” there are times i want to hide away. lay in bed and waste the day. draw the shades and stay inside. hang my head and turn out the light. our love is a rose, it’s delicate but it feeds our souls. I promise you this, nothing will come before our love, oh no. are we stuck in a dream? (stay asleep) are we lost at sea? (drift away) what if our lives aren’t at all as they seem? (close your eyes) and we’re so busy spinning plates and keeping pace that we can’t see (stay in line) what we’ve become. what have we done? and can someone tell me what we’re doing here? seems like no one has a clue. under the light of the moon, don’t we all change? under the light of the moon. follow me into the wall of fog and then you’ll see. sinking ships & crooked smiles, inching shadows, blurry lines, the calling cards of liars & of thieves. given the right vantage point, we’d see we’re all just stuck in time, looking for the key to set us free. follow me into the wall of fog and then you’ll see

welcome to the war room. you’ve led us right in to your home. thank you all for tuning in, now let’s begin the show. let the colors flicker in your eyes, wash over you like waves. swim now in the gentle tide before we pull you out to sea. i don’t mind if you don’t like what i’m about to say. take whatever you are selling and go away, cause i don’t care. the world has lost its mind and now it wants mine too. but lay your hand on me or mine and you’ll find that i’ve more to lose than you. and i don’t care. cause i’m on a ledge and i can’t come down with what i can see from up here. i’m on the edge and i won’t back down unless we push aside the darkness and the cube is broken open
