Track Name: Empty Streets
I tried and tried to look out for number one
But all I see are homeless and empty streets
There are no families here, there are no friends
Only strangers lie beneath empty beds

Cast myself aside from memories
Built my bridges, dug my trench
A grave to make a home
Only strangers lie beneath empty beds

No one knows your name
We are one and the same
Track Name: Harsh Agenda
A beggar's belief, a blatant disregard
That dwells in the deep streets
Eerie voices calling from silence of winds
Harsh agenda falling on deaf ears

Night of debauchery and speculation
The fuckers etch the scribes of fallen lives

Where's the luxury in being inventive?

The cool air has left me cold
Breathless and on my own
And I swear if I win the battle I'll win the war

I am paranoid
Track Name: With A Different Face
And as we part I bury shallow your memory, your ending
We drift apart, but I can never relent, never replace anything
And rest assured, I would fall on the sword to protect you
My mind aside, I can never relent, never replace anything

I'll give them away
All the memories that were left with me
For one moment of solace, rest and peace
I'd give my voice to replace yours with a different face
Track Name: Alex
Take three more steps
You'll trigger the alarm
Causing all the drones
To fall and disarm

It's all about your weight in gold

Solace is only an arm away
A footstep in the desert
Great doors they say to wait
But still I pry

The seas have changed and the shore's too far to go
Take back my hand and leave
