Track Name: Flyboy (New Teaser Mix)
Flyboy by Lesser Than God. This song was written in memory of Sean Welby and the loss that his family received when he committed suicide. They lived next door to me growing up and he used to listen to me singing along to Saviour Machine's first album outside on his front porch.

Lyrics: Learning to fly is the game, they wish that you would have played, flyboy. In your eyes she saw your disguise, the pain that she feels, you'll never realize. Why Daddy? Why is what they'll say, flyboy. Where is my Daddy, anyway? One understands and three just go to play, you made it worse when you took your life away, flyboy. Sean, Sean. You left your family and betrayed, responsibility taken, you took a bride of suicide, no one saw the pain you hide, the power of life is what you need, listen to these words and take heed, oh, I wish you were here so you could see, just how much people really need you Sean. Flyboy, fly away, flyboy, believed in me, yeah, flyboy, it's not the same.
Track Name: Violent Mood Swings (New Teaser Mix)
Violent mood swings, oh, Do you ever feel violence coursing through the blood in your veins, like cancer, it's eating me away, I just perceive it my own way, Violent mood swings, Do you ever say hello without a gun, you get to know who paints the stripes on your back for you, Violent mood swings, Come on and swing, come on and swing, do ya wanna swing? Why do we have to suffer in this life that we live in? So, if man cannot change his ways, will his heart gain moral strength, Violent mood swings, Do you ever go insane staring at the clouds at the sky? Drivin' and paying know mind, for life is more that meets the eye, Violent mood swings, Do you ever surge your pain into one bright swing, your screaming and you don't know why, dear God please watch over me I pray, Violent mood swings.

Lyrics written by Chris Davis and Rona Young, this song was inspired by her and a note she had typed up in class.
Will you live to celebrate these days? Now is the time, every day I cease to be amazed, perhaps tomorrow's sun it will not shine, go on down the line, down the roll, Go on down the line, all you need is a believing soul, celebrate today as if tomorrow's sun won't smile at you, oh, Sometimes I wish you could share my pain just to see the way I feel, take a look inside my mind, watch it turn just like a wheel, (Chorus) Reminisce of the day I thought I could not make it through, will you stay with me to show the way, go on down the line, down the roll, (Chorus) Will you live to celebrate these days? Now is the time, every day I cease to be amazed, perhaps tomorrow's sun it will not shine, go on down the line, down the roll, (Chorus)
Track Name: Anorexic Life
Bitter wind begins to blow, frost on it's branches way him down in the cold, devils are dancing in his eyes, behold he's laughing and I'm scared for my life, Behold he is laughing at my anorexic life, the leaves they are blowing, growing in size, staring the gremlin right in the eyes, I feel that there's no end in sight, this hunger is burning inside, I feel that there's no end in sight, I'm starved from my anorexic life, So much to give, but little to offer, visions of love and visions of laughter, confront the fears and hopes of yesteryear, can't shake this feeling that my demise is near, (Chorus) Behold the gremlin, the gremlin is laughing at my anorexic life, the leaves they are blowing, growing in size, staring the gremlin right in the eyes, behold he is laughing I'm scared for my life, for he knows every time, that I try and fail, every time I've tried and failed, the gremlin is laughing at my anorexic life once again...

Track Name: The Seed (Demo)
This is the seed, Callous traits that hold a souls desire, waiting for a chance to rise up from the fire, comfortably numb of freeing anxiety, swallow the seed to plant it deep inside of me, The seed, Temple of the defense mechanical society, starting from the core and sprouts just like a tree, with roots so deep and branches that reach to the sky, questions are the leaves behind the mind's eye, You recognize that the air is all too thick up here, you need a breathing apparatus and plugs to go in your ears, must try to find a way to get the things I need, friends slowly lose respect to find the seed inside of me, (Chorus) Strong foundation takes it's toll and keeps the eye sewn shut, I put a handle on my shovel to dig the roots up from it's rut, leave the burden in the grave, cover it up and walk away, seize the day and every moment and let your haven take you away, (Chorus)
Track Name: The Mirror (Demo)
Insignificance becomes you, silent eyes smiling upon you, perpetual defiance is a thing called change? No wonder you turn the cheek to hide in shame, transformation to this god in disguise, wearing the hat and dancing the lie, Glaring through the window of lies, watching erosion begin the mudslide, feeling thunder from the storm inside, over bearing is the mirror of the mind's eye, the mirror of, Stalking the halls of your so called life, murals are mounted of souls kicked aside, what seemed to be there has now turned to black, suddenly this legion begins to attack, oppressed by the fear of what is ahead, awakened by the mistress invading your bed, Believing wisdom it comes from strife, knowing you can't control your own life, peeling the skin back from your eyes, revealing the face behind your disguise, the mirror of, step into the mirror of the mind's eye, oh, The masks you once wore are now breathe of fire, over played your drama and lost your desire, fetal positioned in this circle of dust, caused by the walls that fall from high above, depleted your will from all compromise, tear drops of blood fall out from your eye, Believing wisdom it comes from strife, knowing you can't control your own life, peeling the skin back from your eyes, revealing the face behind your disguise, the mirror of...
Track Name: Hang Your Wings (Demo)
Are you afraid of dying, fear not my friend, to die is to live, oh no, oh yes, the one thing I will never understand, or grasp, Have you ever wanted to fly? You just hang up your wings and say it's time to die, you are the temptress, you are my shadow, you follow me where I go, you go, I can't seem to shake you now, it's just not me anymore, Death is like the blink of an eye, angel of death comes in the night from the cold, black sky, the moon will turn to blood, some the day, day is gone, some say the day will never come, it comes, we need a revolution now, I think we've been there before, I spread my blackened wings to cover me, ask me again at judgement, fear not my friend to die is to live,
Have you ever wanted to fly?

Track Name: I'm No Speedbump (Live @ The Muddroom)
Maybe I should not have awoke today,
Termites infest my brain,
I don't want your shame,

One day I'd like to be the king,
Of my own world and it's beings,

So, sick of the everyday thing,
Work and play it's all the same to me,

I shake my fists to take the pain,
Like a mad man won't you take me away?
I'm no speedbump,
Watching you walk all over me,
I don't like you up in my face -

Get your boots off my face, punk!

Acts of judgement displayed,
Looks are not what we should base,

I shake my fists to take the pain,
Like a mad man won't you take me away?
I'm no speedbump,

I'd like to be the king,
Sometimes, I'm as sick as them,
No, I don't want your stinkin' shame,

I shake my fists to take the pain,
Like a mad man won't you take me away?
I'm no speedbump,
Watching you walk all over me,
I don't like you up in my face -

Track Name: Cybergirl (Live @ The Muddroom)

Dancing close to you is a dream come true now don't you see, grab my hand let's go off in the night and take it for all it's worth, cybergirl you've made a great conclusion to this one last search, oh, (Chorus) Will you be mine?
Track Name: Photo #9 (Live @ The Muddroom)
When I look into your hazel eyes,
Then I see a remembrance of you,

No, don't worry about me 'cause I'll be fine,
While you're away I hope your still mine,
A stitch in time saves nine,

And she smelled just like jasmine,
And her touch is so revealing,

No, don't worry about me 'cause I'll be fine,
While you're away I hope your still mine,
A stitch in time saves nine,

When I think back to the time,
When we...

No, don't worry about me 'cause I'll be fine,
While you're away I hope your still mine,
A stitch in time saves nine,

Mm... Photo #9
Track Name: Tower Of Babel (Live @ The Muddroom)
Try to build this wall so high,
Contributors triple in it's size,
A subconscious state planted in a mind,
Libelous babel in which I cry,
Dream of this face and all knowing eyes,
Knowledge and wisdom seem to lead to my demise,

Take my hand so I can bear the silence,
One million points of light cannot outshine the silence,
Voices come so sweet and violent in the silence,
And yet I still stand alone in the silence-

Purposeful venture with a good intent,
In which man's nature has been bent,
Luscious lips that I once kissed,
Have distorted this view now a miss,
I hear the serpent slowly hiss,
The fruit so sweet now I must taste,
An empty abyss of guilt and lies,
Why must I sport this rare disguise?

Take my hand so I can bear the silence,
One million points of light cannot outshine the silence,
Voices come so sweet and violent in the silence,
And yet I still stand alone in the silence-

I begin to run quickly 'cause I must,
Reflect on the things that I have done,
I begin to sweat, it's pouring in my eyes,
Quickly I object to this burning of my sight,
Now that I am blind I catch my breathe,
My muscles tense from this wall I climb,
Now all I hear is the silence-

Take my hand so I can bear the silence,
One million points of light cannot outshine the silence,
Voices come so sweet and violent in the silence,
And yet I still stand alone in the silence-

Take my hand... (4x's)
Track Name: For A Cell (Live @ The Muddroom)
Your eyes are blind from guilt and lies,
Take a look into the mirror of my mind, of my cell,
As distinct as the porticoes and the other rooms,
Which held the image of the deity within- (Sha-la-la)

I'm touched by your silence,
Raping your fears,
Whole and hollow is my heart,
Just like a dream,
For A Cell

Don't you feel no pain?!
Sensing a presence I open my eyes,
Wiping the tears my wounds are healed- (Sha-la-la)

I'm touched by your silence,
Raping your fears,
Whole and hollow is my heart,
Just like a dream,
For A Cell

Don't you feel no pain?!
Sensing a presence I open my eyes,
Wiping the tears my wounds are healed- (Sha-la-la)

Look & see...

I'm touched by your silence,
Raping your fears,
Whole and hollow is my heart,
Just like a dream,
For A Cell

Don't you feel no pain?!
Sensing a presence I open my eyes,
Wiping the tears my wounds are healed- (Sha-la-la)
