Once upon a time I believed in all your lies But they didn't change my life Until I had crossed a line When we couldn't see it through Then I had to cut you loose In the end we all were bruised And the winners only lose Beauty is a useful illusion You can use it to get what you want But when the truth comes out it's confusing And everyone can see what you are Your beauty is a useful illusion I know you use it to get what you want But when the truth comes out it's confusing And everyone can see what you are When it gets ugly (And oh my, it is ugly) Now let's get ugly now let's get ugly now let's get ugly now let's get ugly now let's get ugly now let's get ugly now let's get ugly All things have to end Until they are born again In the flames of former sins That will never leave your head Cause you can't escape the lens People choose to see you in If we cannot make amends We were never really friends Beauty is a useful illusion You can use it to get what you want But when the truth comes out it's confusing And everyone can see what you are Your beauty is a useful illusion I know you use it to get what you want But when the truth comes out it's confusing And everyone can see what you are When it gets ugly (And oh my, it is ugly) Now let's get ugly now let's get ugly now let's get ugly now let's get ugly now let's get ugly now let's get ugly now let's get ugly The truth will set you free From the things that you should leave That you always thought you'd need At least that's what I have seen That the truth will set you free From the things that you should leave That you always thought you'd need At least that's what I believe Beauty is a useful illusion You can use it to get what you want But when the truth comes out it's confusing And everyone can see what you are Your beauty is a useful illusion I know you use it to get what you want But when the truth comes out it's confusing And everyone can see what you are When it gets ugly (And oh my, it is ugly) Now let's get ugly now let's get ugly now let's get ugly now let's get ugly now let's get ugly now let's get ugly now let's get ugly

All us children think the same Always find something to blame We don’t hear the words we sing To the songs on the radio I don’t care what’s right or wrong Give me everything I want No, I could never have enough So run it back and turn it up I don’t care what’s right or wrong Give me everything I want No, I could never have enough So run it back and turn it Up like a fire on the fourth of July Or up like a high for the very first time Maybe up like an airliner riding the sky Or up like your hand when you’re waving goodbye I don’t care what’s right or wrong Give me everything I want No, I could never have enough So run it back and turn it Up where you go to cry all night Over the same old thing for the millionth time Or up like you throw when you try to imbibe Cause the excess intake don’t feel fine I don’t care what’s right or wrong Give me everything I want No, I could never have enough So run it back and turn it up I don’t care what’s right or wrong Give me everything I want No, I could never have enough So run it back and turn it Up like where your body goes Into the tractor beam of a UFO It burns like hell and it moves so slow If you wanna meet God, better let them know I don’t care what’s right or wrong Give me everything I want No, I could never have enough So run it back and turn it up I don’t care what’s right or wrong Give me everything I want No, I could never have enough So run it back and turn it up

My heart is a graveyard Where secrets go to die An emotional warzone And I’m stepping through the mines Do you have a bandage? I got a pretty nasty bite And I think you know why My heart is a graveyard Where secrets go to die An emotional warzone And I’m stepping through the mines Do you have a bandage? I got a pretty nasty bite And I think you know why So I guess this is sweet goodbye Farewell, so long, goodnight A voice cracks through the sky And it wants to know what I’ve done with my life I stand by my crimes And if love’s what you want, I’ve paid my price I’ve got none left; bled out, bone dry I don’t even have a single tear left to cry, why? My heart is a graveyard Where secrets go to die An emotional warzone And I’m stepping through the mines Do you have a bandage? I got a pretty nasty bite And I think you know why My heart is a graveyard Where secrets go to die An emotional warzone And I’m stepping through the mines Do you have a bandage? I got a pretty nasty bite And I think you know why Cause of the... The want and the need The you and the me The did and the should The bite and the blood Cause of the want and the need Cause of the you and the me Cause of the did and the should Cause of the bite and the blood Cause of the want and the need Cause of the you and the me Cause of the did and the should Cause of the bite and the blood Cause of the want and the need Cause of the you and the me Cause of the did and the should Cause of the bite and the blood

I got a shit list you can get off or on And if you make that you can take that to heart I got a shit list and you got Judas lips Cause everything is true inside the whisper clique I got a shit list you can get off or on And if you make that you can take that to heart I got a shit list and you got Judas lips Cause everything is true inside the whisper clique What constitutes abuse? Cause I know trauma too When you use that word for things that are not true It makes a system shake That fought to be in place When you co-opt it for your selfish hate New pandora’s box in my pocket I’m trying not to open it up I find the nearest body of water And scream out loud til I’ve had enough I got a shit list you can get off or on And if you make that you can take that to heart I got a shit list and you got Judas lips Cause everything is true inside the whisper clique I got a shit list you can get off or on And if you make that you can take that to heart I got a shit list and you got Judas lips Cause everything is true inside the whisper clique This cultural malady Will eat us all with ease When we go grab the gun before we speak And now I have one too Cause I’m playing by the rules And if I have to, I’ll point it and shoot Now this is the war that you wanted You play with people like they are dolls And now we are a little more haunted And now we cannot call off the dogs I got a shit list you can get off or on And if you make that you can take that to heart I got a shit list and you got Judas lips Cause everything is true inside the whisper clique I got a shit list you can get off or on And if you make that you can take that to heart I got a shit list and you got Judas lips Cause everything is true inside the whisper clique So weaponize your words Give me all your worst Twist the truth up, I want it to hurt I’m sick of looking back I’m far too old for that Cause one day all of us will turn to ash Buried by the lies and the secrets Frankly I think I’ve had enough So I will make myself a real family And one with people that I can trust I got a shit list you can get off or on And if you make that you can take that to heart I got a shit list and you got Judas lips Cause everything is true inside the whisper clique You got a shit list feels like it never ends You’ve got a whole lot of enemies and not many friends And you will never dig out of this hole you’re in Cause everything is true inside the whisper clique I got a shit list you can get off or on And if you make that you can take that to heart I got a shit list and you got Judas lips Cause everything is true inside the whisper clique I got a shit list you can get off or on And if you make that you can take that to heart I got a shit list and you got Judas lips Cause everything is true inside the whisper clique

I can’t live in my head forever But it’s so nice when I have control Real life is boring so I like movies Where everything happens how it’s supposed to go I’m so lonely and I’m so tired And everyone I know including me is a liar Why do we hide the wayward desire? We will lose our minds just trying to keep staying alive Everything is meant to end some time Very little lasts for your whole life It’s shorter than you think but also longer than you’d like Oh witness it live tonight I can’t live in my head forever But it’s so nice when I have control Real life is boring so I like movies Where everything happens how it’s supposed to go I’m so lonely and I’m so tired And everyone I know including me is a liar Why do we hide the wayward desire? We will lose our minds just trying to keep staying alive Everything is meant to end some time Very little lasts for your whole life It’s shorter than you think but also longer than you’d like Oh witness it live tonight

I feel the walls, they’re closing in I’m out of time once again A new mistake that I will make Death defying great charade All of the stunts have left me stunted Tired of hiding, tired of running All of a sudden: the second coming I’m in the basement, basically gutted (A whole lot) I got claustrophobia let me out (A whole lot) I got claustrophobia let me out (A whole lot) I got claustrophobia let me out right now Cause I got claustrophobia Stuck inside to air-quotes work on myself Feels like mind games and not very much else Box me in cause you don’t know what I mean The setting is changing but it’s the same exact scene Every time (A whole lot) I got claustrophobia let me out (A whole lot) I got claustrophobia let me out (A whole lot) I got claustrophobia let me out right now Cause I got claustrophobia (A whole lot) (My whole life) I got claustrophobia let me out (My whole life) I got claustrophobia let me out (My whole life) I got claustrophobia let me out right now Cause I got claustrophobia (My whole life) Gotta get in where you fit in til you can’t get out With all the lies that you keep living inside your mouth The day you can’t remember your real name could be now Or maybe tomorrow, when you Gotta get in where you fit in til you can’t get out With all the lies that you keep living inside your mouth The day you can’t remember your real name could be now Oh maybe tomorrow I’ll scratch at the walls Until I make a hole Then I’ll trudge through the mud For how long I don’t know But when I make it across that border I will have no more shame And I’ll open my arms to the rain And my name is Andy Dufresne (My whole life) I got claustrophobia let me out (My whole life) I got claustrophobia let me out (My whole life) I got claustrophobia let me out right now

Devoid of love and cursed to live A natural actor who’s doomed to win How does it feel to have it all and still be so hollow? I know you fooled those poor folks Well if you wanna tell a lie, gotta live it til you die Hide that secret from the people in your life all the time If you wanna tell a lie, gotta live it til you die Hide that secret from the people in your life all the time If you wanna tell a lie, gotta live it til you die Hide that secret from the people in your life all the time If you wanna tell a lie, gotta live it til you die Hide that secret from the people in your life all the time, all the time But that’s fine Cause I won’t know how I’m damaged til I’m damned And I will try to make it right but I just can’t And I will pull out of the knives out of my back That only I could craft Well if you wanna tell a lie, gotta live it til you die Hide that secret from the people in your life all the time If you wanna tell a lie, gotta live it til you die Hide that secret from the people in your life all the time If you wanna tell a lie, gotta live it til you die Hide that secret from the people in your life all the time If you wanna tell a lie, gotta live it til you die Hide that secret from the people in your life all the time, all the time (Yo, yo) How you adjusting losing that friend to customs? I question self Love dry spells within the rut, maybe death The fester of vanity within all of your touch Brushes go still, never question the borders we instill I seethe with anger, I’m the danger, need God’s will See through all the wishes we bought, history costs Kai the maker of each qualm turned steady But in my mind I’m shackled by all this pain that you left me I said I don’t wanna live a lie no more If I try, my whole life isn’t mine, now it’s yours I said I don’t wanna live a lie no more But If I try my whole life isn’t mine Well if you wanna tell a lie, gotta live it til you die Hide that secret from the people in your life all the time If you wanna tell a lie, gotta live it til you die Hide that secret from the people in your life all the time, all the time I said I don’t wanna live a lie no more If I try, my whole life isn’t mine, now it’s yours I said I don’t wanna live a lie no more But if I try, my whole life isn’t mine, now it’s yours I said I don’t wanna live a lie no more But if I try, my whole life isn’t mine, now it’s yours I said I don’t wanna live a lie no more But if I try my whole life isn’t mine

Good morning this is my nightmare I hope that you got some rest I was having a nice dream last night And I wish I had overslept But my life keeps passing me by And everyone keeps saying goodbye But I gotta keep moving on Cause that’s how I keep myself alive (Ooh) Am I a pariah?
Am I just stuck downhill on an uphill battle? Am I a pariah? Am I just fucked for a little while? Am I a pariah?
Am I just stuck downhill on an uphill battle? Am I a pariah? Am I just fucked? Good morning this is my nightmare It feels just like real life here Same stupid stench of shame and regret Same stupid hopes and fears So I will follow my bad nose blindly To whatever trouble that may find me And I will never once look behind me If I can ever get out of here (Oh!) Am I a pariah?
Am I just stuck downhill on an uphill battle? Am I a pariah? Am I just fucked for a little while? Am I a pariah?
Am I just stuck downhill on an uphill battle? Am I a pariah? Am I just fucked? (Oh…) Am I a pariah?
Am I just stuck downhill on an uphill battle? Am I a pariah? Am I just fucked for a little while? Am I a pariah?
Am I just stuck downhill on an uphill battle? Am I a pariah? Am I just fucked? And I think I’ve had enough Can somebody wake me up? Yeah I think I’ve had enough Can somebody wake me up? Oh yeah I think I’ve had enough Can somebody wake me up? Oh yeah I think I’ve had enough Can somebody wake me up? Yeah I think I’ve had enough Can somebody wake me up? Oh yeah I think I’ve had enough Can somebody wake me up? Oh yeah I think I’ve had enough Can somebody wake me up? Oh yeah I think I’ve had enough Cause everything here is fucked 
Cause I’m a pariah Cause I’m just stuck downhill on an uphill battle Cause I’m a pariah Cause I’m just fucked, I’m fucked, oh, everything is fucked Cause I’m a pariah Cause I’m just stuck downhill on an uphill battle Cause I’m a pariah And I’m just— I will never get out of here, ever get out If I could ever get out of here, ever get out If I could ever get out of here, ever get out If I could ever get out of here, ever get out But I will never get out of here, never get out Cause I could never get out of here, never get out If I could ever get out of here, ever get out If I could ever get out of here, ever get out But I will never get out of here, never get out of here

(You are recording) Take me somewhere nice Somewhere far away and quiet Somewhere I can see the lights Somewhere just like paradise So I can throw it all away Be all angry and complain Because nothing is the same
Like it was from where I came I would rather come back I would rather come back I would rather come back But there’s no way I can I would rather come back I would rather come back Oh, I’d rather that, but I know Everything must go I would stay right here And live this same day for years Until I had no more fear And the next steps all were clear But I have to charge ahead Filled with existential dread Because it all makes no sense Because it’s all meaningless I would rather come back I would rather come back I would rather come back But there’s no way I can I would rather come back I would rather come back Oh, I’d rather that, but I know Everything must go Right now is the past And the future never lasts One day I’ll be looking back At this person that I am And then I will grit my teeth As I raise my voice to sing Until my time is complete And I’m swallowed by the beast I would rather come back I would rather come back I would rather come back But there’s no way I can I would rather come back I would rather come back Oh, I’d rather that, but I know Everything must go (Oh!) I’d rather come back I would rather come back I would rather come back But there’s no way I can I would rather come back I would rather come back Yeah! I’d rather that, but I know Everything must go…
