Track Name: The Chase
Hey, don’t hate yourself away
You want a piece of the action, but none of the grafting, wait
Did you thing you could change, the only rule in the game?
You’re all about getting reaction and not really crafting your way

In light
Just slave away
In shade
You’re not too big to fall
I’ll be in hell before I have it all

Waste, undue feelings of grace
Irresolute drama so easily harbours your faith
The light, ends the tunnel you hate
The future stays pure for those who endure and know that it’s all for the chase

In light
Just slave away
In shade
You’re not too big to fall
I’ll be in hell before I have it all

To start again
And relive this thrall
I don’t think I’d change a thing at all
Track Name: Dominion
Insane, I’ve got the feeling again
The shame, of being part of the game
Pay your weight in gold to die poor when you’re old
You sit there and watch while the madness unfolds
One day you know they’ll be just like you

Wait for the masses to come forward
They’ve got nothing to lose but their minds
Accept the underground notions
If you ain’t scared you ain’t alive

I’d take the only way
If it would give us just one day
Not to feel like we’ve been left for dead
And not have the chance to walk away

Insane, I’ve got the feeling again
The shame, of being part of the game
They’ve waited 32 years to have cameras in homes
In the back of your mind you know you’re never alone
Hiding miles away they’ll be watching you

It seems that lies are the greatest healer
But I’m still stuck here with time
More rest for the wicked we’re still working
The dominion’s still alive

Nothing shows the colours more than seeing what we had
Nothing makes me sadder than the thing that I can’t have
Track Name: Ghost
There’s a family of maniacs living upside my head
Controlling any everything and making me look bad
I use my mirror for things other than white lines
Sometimes your friends are just three sixes in disguise

I got the earth
I got the earth
For what it’s worth
I got the earth

Scream at your mistress and the secrets that she keeps
Pray for the end of everything that’s gone too deep
My doppelgänger told me all that matters is inside
I recognise his face but I’ve never seen those eyes

I got the earth
I got the earth
For what it’s worth
I got the earth
Track Name: Chikatilo
A pattern’s emerging, increasing notoriety
Irrelevant people, believing their sobriety

A creature of habit, revealing vulnerabilities
They’re living among us, observing our complexities

I’d love to take a walk around your mind
See that neglected child that lives deep inside
Maybe you just never bit your tongue
No remorse for the families lives you’ve undone

I’d love to take a walk around your mind
See that neglected child that lives deep inside
Maybe you just never bit your tongue
No remorse for the families lives you’ve undone

With a will to resurface nightly
With an ache to distort his psyche
Last ditch Serbsky but Yeltsin says “no”
No we’re just left with people that Andrei let go
