Track Name: The Most Dangerous Game
See the forest fall down around me
To expose my prey.
Try, you cannot hide.
You cannot escape.

Let fly your fingers, craft empty words.
We know your formula, those words are a curse
That seek to bind the meek,
And reap what they've sewn
They're stripped and bound, and will sink like a stone.

I have been here before...
Amid this tranquil, amid this tranquil storm.
Where's your silent calm?
So removed from form.

Let fly your fingers, craft empty words.
We know your formula, those words are a curse
That seek to bind the meek,
And reap what they've sewn
They're stripped and bound, and will sink like a stone.

They sink like a stone...

I am the wrench in your plan
(Forever the one that just got away)
Track Name: Type C
Look in my eyes, tell me what do you see?
Am I driven and focused, or I'm not as I seem...
Just a silly boy with a sillier dream
Should I be safe or should I take responsibili-
Fuck these holes won't mend, I am sinking at sea.
I'm alone in the ocean, I will never be free.
I am tethered to the tide, and it keeps me alive...

Tell me, oh omniscient one.
Will I die a loaded gun?
Never doing the thing I love...
I'll never know the plan, you'll never tell.
I'd make a deal, but my soul would never sell.

I have wondered, always wondered, if I have what it takes.
The patience to see patients every night every day.
And for those who would see me, and see me as they may,
Let us hear their prediction, tell me: what would they say?
"You're such a bore, truth be told, what did happen to you?
Outgrew the scene, your dream, where's the man I once knew?
You had potential, such potential, it's been thrown to the side.
Where's the man I loved?"

Tell me, oh omniscient one.
Will I die a loaded gun?
Never doing the thing I love
I'll never know the plan, you'll never tell.
I'd make a deal, but my soul would never sell.

Tell me now oh wicked one.
Will I die a loaded gun?
Never doing the thing I love
You know the plan, I'll ring the bell.
Said it's a deal, now you better fucking...
You better tell...
Track Name: The Wake
They say that he's passed, was lost at sea
Slave to the world, he was never free
The widow weeps by the willow tree,
Dirge echoes on without me

Voices lost in a surging stream
Is this real or just a dream?
A million tears, a thousand dreams...
Shattered hopes riding on the breeze

I search through the darkness
Grown weary from the light.
I know there's something out there
Hidden in the night.
And though I may run to the
Slow, slow setting setting sun
Through the thickness of the rain
I have all my life to gain.

Set his course on a sea of fame
Searching for love in material gain
Searched in vain til his years grew long
His will was weak and his heart not strong.

Voices lost in a surging stream
Is this real or just a dream?
A million tears, a thousand dreams...
Shattered hopes riding on the breeze

I search through the darkness
Grown weary from the light.
I know there's something out there
Hidden in the night.
And though I may run to the
Slow, slow setting setting sun
Through the thickness of the rain
I have all my life to gain.

I searched through the darkness
Grown weary from the light.
I know there's something out there
Hidden in the night.
And though I may run to the
Slow, slow setting setting sun
Through the thickness of the rain
I have all my life to gain...
Track Name: Distant
Trick and treat the only trick is hope...
And you're treated to dine in hell.
You had your chance, your soul's been sold.
Now the fire is burning well...

"Mister red, I don't have things of value,
I can't afford this reservation... I swear I will come back."
"No, no, you'll be just fine,
I like them when they're worthless.
I shall serve you a feast of the dead.
Are you feeling...hopeless?"

Shiver shiver this land is so damn cold,
In this tomb of frozen flame.
Your face beings to melt,
With the memories you retain.

Now you're falling into bliss...
You know just where it leads.
Don't take his hand right away,
When he beckons you to feed.

"Excuse me sir I really must be going...
There's something I haven't done;
You see I've left someone."
"No, no, you'll be just fine,
I like them alone and friendless.
You'll find peace when...
HAH! No you won't.
Are you feeling hopeless?"

(And then mister red saw the man in the corner and he knew that this would
Be an easy victory for him. He went up to the boy and he said son... do you
Feel alone? And the man said... gee I, I don't know... gee... I do, I do, I
Feel alone! Mr Red said you should come with me, and you'll never have to
Feel alone again! Then the man said: I... I just don't know if this would
Be right for me...you see I have all my family... and he said no
You come with me! So the man signed in his own blood on the dotted line,
And Mr. Red let out a big laugh and said HAH HAH HAH! You're coming with
Me! You think hell is here on earth? You have no idea... where hell is.)

"No, no, you'll be just fine,
I like them alone and friendless.
You'll find peace when...
HAH! No you won't.
Are you feeling hopeless?"
Track Name: 16 Queens
The game is over I have found a home
What we have done cannot be done alone
I have never noticed there were 16 queens
Against a pawn, what a grisly scene
The hours flew by, the seconds crawled on
We looked at each other as we sang this song
At last, at last, the labels are gone
The king of the world is lowly pawn

Don't be a rolling stone, wander through life alone
Don't let it pass you by, carve some wings and fly
Open your mouth and speak, your tongue will lash the meek
We're all prepared to teach, now practice what you preach
Close your eyes and look inside, you know that you can't hide

'Cause times have come and times will go
After twenty-some odd years there's just one thing that I know
Track Name: The Factory, Part I: Creatures of Habit
Come one come all, to the factory
Where they all look but never see
Walking shadows hide
Beneath the beam

Behind these walls
All their secrets lie
In graves that have been dug to be skin deep
But those afraid to see
They hold the key

Right this way, you'll see
The reason why you came
All the same
It will be perfect
I can assure

Don't mind the man
Get back to work
'Cause they will watch those gears turn all day
Now open wide
Gate's inside
'Cause you will never see the light of day
Again

[I don't want to see any of you slacking off on the job. This week we have a very important decision to make. We will decide who will stay... And who will leave]

You better watch your back in here
When they crack that whip
Back to the furnace with you
They'll have you runnin'
They'll have you burnin'
Like the souls that never...

I hear the whispers, they claim defeat
In the hearts of those been banished...
I feel the heat

Don't mind the man
Get back to work
Cause they will watch those gears turn all day
Now open wide
Gate's inside
'Cause you will never see the light of day
Again
Track Name: The Factory, Part II: The Furnace
Dare I look around?
The fire's burning hot
Down, down, down, down, down
With the one's that they forgot

Here we are, here we are, here we are, here we are

All our souls thrown away
From the furnace flame we will take
All that makes you who you really are

Look we got fresh meat
To fuel the fire well
You won't withstand the heat
He'll serve his term in hell

Here we are, here we are, here we are, here we are

All our souls thrown away
From the furnace flame we will take
All that makes you who you really are

(Boom, ah, boom, boom, ah)

All our souls thrown away
From the furnace flame we will take
All that makes you who you really are
Track Name: The Factory, Part III: Wreakers of Havoc
Baby close your eyes and dream
Can you hear the gears turn
One by one they grind
One by one they grind me to nothing again

To the ones we trusted
Here's your machine
Its gears turned and rusted
Don't tell us to go back to work
Now open wide
The furnace door
And make the man, and make the man
A man no more

Daddy tell me what came next
Did you leave your soul behind
Tell me now I cannot rest
Tell me now I cannot leave here alive

To the ones we trusted
Here's your machine
Its gears turned and rusted
Don't tell us to go back to work
Now open wide
The furnace door
And make the man, and make the man
A man no more

I ran into the furnace
With all fear of it gone
I'll make sure that those fucking walls
Came down to the ground
Down to the ground

Now open wide
(Ground)
The furnace door
(Ground)
Now open wide
(Ground)
The furnace door
And make the man, and make the man
A man no more
Track Name: The Factory, Part IV: Beyond the Gate
They've all come and gone
Been laid to rest
Now hear them sleep
Inside your head
But they will never see
What has become of me
Shattered broken down
Now left a memory

You see the times have gone
The story goes
The one how tells
Once was told

To lay to rest
All we ever knew
Hand in hand beyond the gate
We'll walk away

The gates forever closed
The walls came down
They speak of a day
The ruins came around

From the ruin rose a man
His heart bruised and broken down like
The walls that he brought to the ground
To the ground, to the ground, to the ground

To lay to rest
All we ever knew
Hand in hand beyond the gate
We'll walk away, we'll walk away
