Track Name: Easy Way Out
did you know
you got a monster within you
and it's tryin' to get out
it's tryin' to get out

did you know
that tryin' to go with the flow
that's the easy way out
yeah, that's the easy way out

did you know
that i could put on a show
i'm in disguise
i'm in disguise

did you know
that trying to go with the flow
that's the easy way out
that's the easy way out
Track Name: [ p r e t e n d e r ]
the age of innocence
the everlasting road
i found a place to begin again
and make the past unknown

where no body knows who
you pretend
pretend
to be

if you're feeling close to
the end
then you can
hold on to me

outcasted to the pit
depths of the lions' den
that's the me that i forget
step into the light my friend

where no body knows
i pretend
if you're feeling close
to the end
Track Name: The Troubled Side
to pass the road untraveled
unraveling the soul
to speak with all your demons
as you battle for control

oh the walk
the rocky path
through hell and back

you're keeping your transgressions
in recesses of the mind
you kiss the ground beneath your footsteps
so they're blessed by the divine

yet still the walk
is a rocky path
through hell and back

i've been on the troubled side
with the fire at my heels
from the northern lights
through the southern skies
i've been trying to find what's real

the past into the dusk
ashes into dust

life may bring you lessons
with nuances to the rules
i'm a man made lethal weapon
in a game of thrones for fools
so if we talk
whisper soft
whisper soft

dangling on a strain of time
where beast and man collide
come close to me and
keep your hand in mine
Track Name: 1984
how are you so passive
adjust your looking glasses
i know exactly what makes you tick
i don't think that we
should have the liberty
to tell each other how to live

the future looks like 1984
the future looks like 1984
so you can't tell me
what it means
to be free
because what it means
is the word to me

it's the morning after
unnatural disasters
and i don't think that i have much left
but, i know what's in store
if there's another war
i don't know what we're fighting for

the future looks like 1984
the future looks like 1984
so you can't tell me what it means
to be free
because what it means
is the word to me
