The Pariah, the Parrot, the Delusion tracks

Lyrics

1. PARIAH

To sacrifice oneself never made sense to me
Cause life is really the only and last gift we've all received
Some will waste it in the name of something you can't see
Continually defeat the purpose of that something creating

Oh, delusions
Are meant to justify, justify the things you do
Oh, delusions
Never really qualified, qualified as an excuse

As he approached the city center with the skyline in view
There was nothing left to contemplate, he knew he must follow through
With the plan certified by faith and a plan written in death
At that moment, this was it, he took his last breath

Oh, delusions
Are meant to justify, justify the things you do
Oh, delusions
Never really qualified, qualified as an excuse

No more hiding, no more hiding, no more blame
No more fighting, no more fighting, no more pain
No more chaos, no more chaos, no more stress
And no addiction, no addiction, no more mess
No swollen head
No more greed, no more feeding from the hand
No more writing, no more "blame it on the man"
Realize it's your own fault

"Da-da-da, do-do-da-do-da"

3. IRELAND

I'll Never leave this place,
No I'll never leave this place,
I'll never leave the place
where I was born.
Because beyond these town limits
even though I've never seen 'em,
There's really nothing else to explore
There's nothing more...

Where is your intrigue and interest?
You don't have any questions or wonder
Why would I leave this place
When I'm comfortable right here?
Everything I need and more isn't far, it's near

I'll never leave this place,
No I'll never leave this place,
I'll never leave the place
where I was born.
Because beyond these town limits
even though I've never seen 'em,
There's really nothing else to explore
There's nothing more...

You have created a falsehood,
a focused and closed minded view.
There's no telling where we'll be
at this same time next year
But I do know one thing,
it wont be far from here.

I'll never leave this place,
No I'll never leave this place,
I'll never leave the place
where I was born.
Because beyond these town limits
even though I've never seen 'em,
There's really nothing else to explore
There's nothing more...

12. MOURNING THIS MORNING

We'll be mourning this morning
There is no need to complain
Cos we've been ignoring this warning
There is no pleasure without this pain

We're drawn together by accident
We'll be forever with these words and
Melodies they'll guide us through this speck in time
We're trying to get the missed attempts
We are forever with these words and
Memories they'll guide us through this night
We're getting older, older, older

Another day, another rut
Along the highways faults
We sat and watched him, the saddened watchmen
He's all alone

We're drawn together by accident
We'll be forever with these words and
Melodies they'll guide us through this speck in time
We're trying to get the missed attempts
We are forever with these words and
Memories they'll guide us through this night
We're getting older, older, older

But it's not over, over
Cos this all, all you'll ever get
Don't forget that, don't forget that, don't forget
Cos this all, all you'll ever get
Don't forget that, it's your one and only chance
Go this far, on your own
We'll be mourning this morning
We'll be mourning this morning
Cos we've been ignoring this warning all along
We're getting older, older, older




13. STAMP OF ORIGIN: TAKE A LOOK AROUND

Take a look around,
All things green and brown,
Are here to stay,
The people walking by,
Buildings built so high,
Will be gone someday,
A piercing sound so loud,
Takes over the crowd,
Watch them run away,
Objects in the sky,
Blacken all the light,
Total disarray,
What a show,
What a show,
Take a look around,
Everything you've found will be gone someday.

15. CARTOON SHOWROOM

Gonna miss your ways, your sin, your smell, your smile
An anxious attempt to let you know
Dancing on the roof of some cartoon showroom
But in an instant Id give it all right back
So keep moving onward
Run through that open door
Consuming knowledge
Wormhole through times before

Cant you hear their voices crying
Cant you hear their hearts breaking

There is only so much we can, only so much can be shown to you
The rest is your choice... its your choice?
When I close my eyes, I see two faces above me
One to my left, one to my right
I took you under, under my wing to shadow
It never did bother me to hide you from the light
So keep moving onward
Run through that open door
Consuming knowledge
Wormhole through times before

Cant you hear their voices crying
Cant you hear their hearts breaking

There is only so much we can, only so much can be shown to you
The rest is your choice?its your choice?its your choice
So keep moving onward (Run through that open door)




16. QUOTES

There's a way
A way to get out of here
To escape these storms and find some shelter
To rid of your darkness, to rid of your boredom
There's somewhere
Somewhere that you can go
It's obvious, well, well it's apparent
It's right in front of you
So reach out and take it
And just let go

Our sobriety will diminish
Discriminate we fade slow, fade slow
These drugs will expand us
United we will grow
Let go, Let go

There's a way
A way to squash all of your fears
When everyone around you seems to be a stranger
You feel their eyes upon you
Your hearing their thoughts
As they walk away their voice grows louder
Illusions illuminate
While your delusions dictate your next move
You're bound by deception and a misled direction
So just let go

Our sobriety will diminish
Discriminate we fade slow, fade slow
These drugs will expand us
United we will grow
Let go, Let go, Let go

There's a way
A way out of here
There's a way
A way out of here
So just let go

Our sobriety will diminish
Discriminate we fade slow, fade slow
These drugs will expand us
United we will grow
Let go, Let go
