Track Name: Rats
Look down there and tell me what you see.
Do you see all of those little rats?
Scurrying, scratching against their concrete walls?

All of them competing with their counterparts
Unaware of the world at large
Do they even know what it means to be
What it means to be– free?

All of them are looking for a way out
All they want is to find their way out
Who's gonna show them all the way out
Will they find it?

But when we really watch, what do we see?
Lesser living beings, undoubtedly.
Though, showing signs of some intelligence
Do they even know?

Mindless robots acting on indulgence
Atoms that react to their environments
Constrained by natural disablement
But do they even know? No!

All of them are looking for a way out
All they want is to find their way out
Who's gonna show them all the way out
Will they find it?

Rats

All of us are looking for a way out
All we want is to find a way out
Who's gonna show us all the way out
Will we find it?

Do we really need to find a way out?
Are we ever gonna find a way out?
Who's gonna show us all the way out
Will we find it?
Track Name: Come A Little Closer
I see you there, and I'm right here
Come on closer; I want you near.
I feel the burning flames swelling up inside
Just come with me I wanna take you for a ride
Call me a faggot; Call me a pervert
Call me a loser; Maybe I deserve it
I feel it coming on and it's coming on strong
It overloads my brain; it's overloading
Right now

Come a little closer
Come a little closer
Come a little closer
Come a little closer

Lend me your ear; Lend me your soul
Lend me your skin; I'm getting cold
The ground is shaking, yeah I know it very well
It's gonna open up and send us all to hell
I see a white light; it's burning on my skin
Light me on fire and kill the pathogen
It's picking at my brain; itching inside
All of these voices are ready to collide
Right now

Come a little closer
So I can feel you breathe
I wanna make you see
So you can feel my pain
Come on and scratch my brain
