Track Name: The Lost Carnival
It’s a hazy day and it won’t be the last
Look at the fun erased by the blast
Trees on rooftops and booths wilted by floods
Rats and roaches scavenge through the dust

Toy dolls in pieces, oh look at the fun
Dirty prizes, who wants one?
Frozen in time, cars tethered by vines
The Ferris wheel runs, but hasn’t moved in some time

Join us at the fun fair
A toxic past fills the land and the air
Join us at the fun fair
Put on your gas mask and we’ll take you there

Weeds and grass growing through the walkways
Follow in the footsteps that the soldiers made
No hand in hand by mother and child
No sugar induced, cotton candy smiles

Join us at the fun fair
A toxic past fills the land and the air
Join us at the fun fair
Put on your gas mask and we’ll take you there

Epidemic to desertion
Paved the path to desolation
Under government assertion
A life of isolation

Join us at the fun fair
A toxic past fills the land and the air
Join us at the fun fair
Put on your gas mask and we’ll take you there

Join us at the fun fair
A toxic past fills the land and the air
Join us at the fun fair
Put on your gas mask and we’ll take you there
Track Name: Wake Up! You're Not Dead Yet
Hey you, been beat down
You’re face flat on the ground
Blood pools ‘round your head
Your last breath, you’re close to it
How did you end up this way?

You know you’re turning blue
And it’s time to face the truth
Claw back away from death
Head’s up, this is just a test
Don’t you let it end this way!

Even though the time has slowed
Wake up! No, you’re not dead yet
Open your eyes, rise and rise
Wake up! No, you’re not dead yet

Crack, crack open your eyes
And look out into the night
Alone just you and me
We’re two voices, but one psyche
Don’t you dare give up this way!

It’s time to make our move
The last chance, it’s up to you
Vengeance that is the plan
To plot revenge; let’s get even
You know it’s really the only way!

Even though the time has slowed
Wake up! No, you’re not dead yet
Open your eyes, rise and rise
Wake up! No, you’re not dead yet

Come on; get up on your feet
Are you with me?
Use your rage to elevate
Are you with me?

Even though the time has slowed
Wake up! No, you’re not dead yet
Open your eyes, rise and rise
Wake up! No, you’re not dead yet

Even though the time has slowed
Wake up! No, you’re not dead yet
Open your eyes, rise and rise
Wake up! No, you’re not dead yet

Wake Up!!
Track Name: Whiskey King
Morning comes too early, my eyes burn in my skull
A tough fight against the night, I’m up against my own will
Made up my list, my agenda…and now it’s ripped to shreds
I’m fighting fires with no water, I throw my hands on my head

1 shot…here’s Johnnie
2 shots…sit back Jack
3 shots…let’s meet the Maker
Another round; do I have any takers?
4 shots…it’s a Turkey shoot
5 shots…at the Old Crowe
6 shots…I tip my Crowne
Tonight, I’m gonna be the king of the town

The final seconds; the countdown begins to pull the plug on the day
Who needs a bed, we’ll sleep when we’re dead; let’s hit the town, let come what may
I want the day to get blurry, let’s head out for a drink
Pour the whiskey, let’s get dizzy; come raise your glass with me

1 shot…here’s Johnnie
2 shots…sit back Jack
3 shots…let’s meet the Maker
Another round; do I have any takers?
4 shots…it’s a Turkey shoot
5 shots…at the Old Crowe
6 shots…I tip my Crowne
Tonight, I’m gonna be the king of the town

40 hours a week I work my fingers to the bone
I want to crawl in that bottle and call it home
48 hours until last call
Come one, get me some alcohol

1 shot…here’s Johnnie
2 shots…sit back Jack
3 shots…let’s meet the Maker
Another round; do I have any takers?
4 shots…it’s a Turkey shoot
5 shots…at the Old Crowe
6 shots…I tip my Crowne
Tonight, I’m gonna be the king of the town

1 shot…here’s Johnnie
2 shots…sit back Jack
3 shots…let’s meet the Maker
Another round; do I have any takers?
4 shots…it’s a Turkey shoot
5 shots…at the Old Crowe
6 shots…I tip my Crowne
Bartender, pour me another round
Track Name: Feel the Burn
Take my hand, child and walk with me
Through the land of agony
Follow me through the pain
Each foot step will be more bloodstained

Your soul will cry, your heart will ache
Pay the toll and head through the gates
Take my hand, child and walk with me
Through the land of agony

Can you smell the melting the flesh?
Can you hear the souls in distress?

The flames on flames, there’s nowhere to turn
The pain on pain is what you deserve
Your back is to black, there’s no return
Trapped in chains to feel the burn

Embers fall and flames rise
Ashes rain, breathe in the despised
Take my hand, Son and walk with me
Through the land of agony

Can you smell the melting the flesh?
Can you hear the souls in distress?

The flames on flames, there’s nowhere to turn
The pain on pain is what you deserve
Your back is to black, there’s no return
Trapped in chains to feel the burn

The flames on flames, there’s nowhere to turn
The pain on pain is what you deserve
Your back is to black, there’s no return
Trapped in chains to feel the burn
Track Name: I'm Down
I never saw it coming
It took me by surprise
I never saw that ghost before my eyes

It’s all smoke and mirrors
Or a sleight of hand
An age old magic trick that I can’t understand

Boom! I’m down
It hit me like a truck
A head on collision, they say it’s a drug
Boom! I’m down
It hit me like a brick
My mind is blown, I guess this is it

I should have seen the warning
Right in front of my face
I guess I was too blind and was caught off base

Hidden in the shadows
Hard for me to see
It came out of the darkness straight at me

Boom! I’m down
It hit me like a truck
A head on collision, they say it’s a drug
Boom! I’m down
It hit me like a brick
My mind is blown, I guess this is it

I don’t know where it came from, I guess I had no clue
If you don’t listen to me, it may get you too

Boom! I’m down
It hit me like a truck
A head on collision, they say it’s a drug
Boom! I’m down
It hit me like a brick
My mind is blown, I guess this is it

Boom! I'm Down (x3)
They say it's like a drug
Boom! I'm Down (x3)
I guess this is it!
Track Name: Imperfect Perfection
I’ve made mistakes, I’ll admit
I’m a man, I’m not perfect
And as for you…you feel the same
Nothing is your fault and I am to blame

It’s not my fault, it’s not my flaws
But thank you for pointing them out to me
It’s not my fault, you’ve got the disease
Imperfect perfection don’t you see?

The angry dark clouds above my head
Were made by you and all the things that you did
And now it’s time that I speak my mind
I want to see tears coming from your eyes

It’s not my fault, it’s not my flaws
But thank you for pointing them out to me
It’s not my fault, you’ve got the disease
Imperfect perfection don’t you see?

Perfection is only a concept
Not unlike this song
Even though you thought you were right
How does it feel to be so wrong?

It’s not my fault, it’s not my flaws
But thank you for pointing them out to me
It’s not my fault, you’ve got the disease
Imperfect perfection don’t you see?

It’s not my fault
It’s not my fault
Track Name: Hall of Mirrors
Turn on the lights and let the burn subside
Did you imagine you’d end up like this?
Every way you look you’re staring back at you

Walk ahead, don’t think twice
You don’t want to know the real truth
Step by step, tread slow
What’s ahead? Which way should you go?

Look left, look right
Your reflection shows that you’re confused
Don’t trust your eyes and all the clones staring at you
A hall of mirrors has spun you around
You made your way in, but can’t find the way out
A hall of mirrors revealing the truth
No stones to throw, there’s no break through

There’s no escape the answers lie within
Did you know you’d have to make a choice like this?
Choose the right, choose wrong
Choose the left, the confusion won’t last too long

No hand to lead, no key for the quiz
I hope you studied all night for this
To pass this test you need to see inside…yourself

Look left, look right
Your reflection shows that you’re confused
Don’t trust your eyes and all the clones staring at you
A hall of mirrors has spun you around
You made your way in, but can’t find the way out
A hall of mirrors revealing the truth
No one to save you

Look left, look right
Your reflection shows that you’re confused
Don’t trust your eyes and all the clones staring at you
A hall of mirrors has spun you around
You made your way in, but can’t find the way out
A hall of mirrors revealing the truth
No stones to throw, there’s no break through

Look left, look right
Your reflection shows that you’re confused
Don’t trust your eyes and all the clones staring at you
A hall of mirrors has spun you around
You made your way in, but can’t find the way out
A hall of mirrors revealing the truth
No one to save you

No one to save you (x4)
