Track Name: No Mirror
No Mirror:

Arms of the mother will keep you in grace
Our generation's no mirror to face
Chemical progress is sure to erase
The anchors of history keep us in place

It's hard to tell them apart from the flies
It's hard to stand upright under their lies
An island surrounded by coastlines of eyes
They want surrender

Eyes in the mirror
Eyes in the dust
I'm not the sick one

Watching the stakes growing higher and higher
Watching the rats as they lie and conspire
All of these oceans to put out the fires
Ashes to ashes our funeral pyre

If you believe that you've been led astray
See that the mirror is taken away
Would you still choose to remain in a cage?
Would you surrender

Eyes in the mirror
Eyes in the dust
I'm not the sick one

Now nothing's the same as it was
And the wolf has come right to my door
I'll forsake myself to the claim
That I just don't believe anymore
Track Name: Baby Steps
Baby Steps:

She came to me with baby steps, at first
I could not see this blessing it was a curse
Her eyes are hollow like an open grave
I cannot help myself, I am to blame

I gave the baby too much milk to drink
Then it got greedy and learned how to think
I see it crawling out an open grave
I cannot help myself, I am to blame

It's more than I could ever ask of you
It's more
It's more than I could ever take from you
It's too much, more

I rock your cradle till the splinters come
I tie you up until you come undone
We'll think it over, in your open grave
I cannot help myself, I am to blame

It's getting easier to hide from you
I set the trap and watch you run into
All my obsession coming down in spades
I cannot help myself

It's more than I could ever ask of you
It's more
It's more than I could ever take from you
It's too much, more

You never punished me, it's too late
Why don't you keep away?
I've been so tired but awake
while you keep counting down

It's more than I could ever ask of you
It's more
It's more than I could ever take from you
It's too much, more
