about

Don't let the band name confuse you, this is a different beast than on Your Castle Comes Down, driven by fuzzed out bass riffs and pounding drums.

Track Name: Fever
Set me up, don’t set me down
When you’re coming ‘round
Heartbreak wont stay awake
It’s the ground you shake

It’s a fact you attack
When you see that you want it back
You can turn on a dime
for the sake of a perfect crime

And we’ve got
So much self control
And we’ve got
Nowhere left to go
It’s like a fever

Take a break, play the game
When you feel that it’s all the same
Turn it off, run away
save it for another day

You can see the fever bleeds
When you find everything need
So take a hit throw your wit
dive into another fighting pit

And we’ve got
So much self control
And we’ve got
Nowhere left to go
It’s like a fever

Because you’re never gonna win
Talking big until the end
It’s like a fever… It’s like a fever…
Track Name: Little Boxes
Don’t tell, don’t speak
No pause, no repeat
Stay away from reflections
Keep away from detection

From every side there is so much pressure
Try so hard just to keep it all together

Little boxes, hold so much
Little boxes, they hold too much

Can’t deny, can’t convey
what you feel in anyway
Seal it tight, with a kiss
Keep the things they’ll never miss

From every side there is so much pressure
Try so hard just to keep it all together

Little boxes, hold so much
Little boxes, they hold too much

From every side there is so much pressure
Try so hard just to keep it all together

Walls speak, so much to say
The righteous fled and run away
Tiny corners, such a haven
Sins and sinners have been forsaken

From every side there is so much pressure
Try so hard just to keep it all together

Little boxes, hold so much
Little boxes, they hold so much
Track Name: Stand Up
It’s not running away
It’s not here so why would you stay
It’s not the waiting to choose
Head down but you know that you loose

But this time around
Take it on with your head in the ground
'Cuz this will happen again
Turn it down and you know that you win

Always care free,
Always obey
Now you finally agree,
that this isn’t going your way

Just stand up,
And stay awake
Another chance,
Before you break

Don’t hesitate
Don’t fall into another debate
Don’t ask yourself why
Lean back and just go for the ride

And this time around
Take it on with your feet on the ground
It can’t happen again
Turn it on and you know that you’ll win

Always care free,
always obey
Now you finally agree,
That this isn’t going your way

Just stand up,
And stay awake
Another chance,
Before you break
Track Name: All The Rage
This is a missile
This a burning thread
This is the new song in my head

Presupposition
Can’t stop it to explain
About the concept in my brain

Don’t let me down…
Don’t let me down…
Don’t turn me down
It’s all the rage…...

This is a warning
This is a burning flare
This is the one chance to prepare

Redefinition
Can’t stop it to explain
About the concept in my brain

Don’t let me down…
Don’t let me down…
Don’t turn me down
It’s all the rage…..
Track Name: Masquerade
And I can see that you know what you’re doing
But the facts… won’t stack… this time
It’s the way that you go off the deep end
But your attack… is coming back… this time

You’re always under cover,
you’re always just pretending.
You’re always under cover,
you’re just a never ending
Masquerade
Masquerade

And I can see that you know what you’re doing
But the latch… won’t catch…. this time
It’s the way that you’re calling for sympathy
But the tears… don’t appear… this time

You’re always under cover,
you’re always just pretending.
You’re always under cover,
you’re just a never ending
Masquerade
Masquerade
Track Name: Borderline
So let’s get down to the feeling
It’s not the way that I’m dreaming
Got me hanging on a wire
And I know it’s getting higher

You’re looking for a light
At the end of the night
You’re wishing for a martyr
'Cuz you’re just a fire starter

Give me a heart, don’t me a sign
I don’t wanna be left on the borderline
Oh come on, come on

Now I’m swimming for the shore
I can hear you wanting more
But now the water’s getting deep
And I’m heading for retreat

Give me a heart, don’t me a sign
I don’t wanna be left on the borderline
Oh come on, come on

So let’s get down to the feeling
It’s not the way that I’m dreaming
Got me hanging on a wire
Now I’m know it’s getting higher

Give me a heart, don’t give me a star
Don’t give me a ride 'cuz I don’t wanna go far
Oh come on, come on
Track Name: Release It
Sometimes you feel there’s too much showing
Just can’t deal with the pressure growing
It’s like a gold mine without knowing
Every day gets more controlling

So break your rules, don’t back away
The sea of fools, would tell me

Hold on, till we say
Go on son, release it…. release it

Every case has a different meaning
The open space is what you’re needing
Sometimes the best way to start the leaving
Is to cut back on what you’re keeping

So break your rules, don’t back away
The sea of fools, would tell me

Hold on, till we say
Go on son, release it…. release it

Sometimes you feel there’s too much showing
Just can’t deal with the pressure growing
It’s like a gold mine without knowing
And all you’re left with is what you’re holding

So break your rules, don’t back away
The sea of fools, would tell me

Hold on, till we say
Go on son, release it…. release it
Track Name: Fine Line
Breathe and take a beat
Pause, but don’t repeat
Move without delay
Don’t be led astray

You walk the fine line, now get away
Walk the fine line back to yesterday
You walk the fine line, now get away
Walk the fine line every time you…

Trust that little voice
Give yourself a choice
Hold your doubt within
Shut that door again

You walk the fine line, now get away
Walk the fine line back to yesterday
You walk the fine line, now get away
Walk the fine line every time you…

Change your point of view
You’ll find it’s long been overdue
Change your point of view
You’ll find it’s what you always knew

Stay the course you need
Try a new technique
Take the curtain down
Close the shield around

You walk the fine line, now get away
Walk the fine line back to yesterday
You walk the fine line, now get away
Walk the fine line every time you…
Track Name: Under My Skin
Try letting go some part of me
Try letting go the day to day
Try letting go of what they pay
and take a chance on the diamond days

And now it’s calling
It’s getting under my skin
Oh no…

Take back the time, led astray
Take back the means that you gave away
Take back the words, that you say
and set adrift like a cast away

And now it’s calling
It’s getting under my skin
Oh no…

Break away

And now it’s calling
It’s getting under my skin
Oh no…
