LOST IN THE ECHO

You were that / foundation
Never gonna be another one no
I followed / so taken
So conditioned I could never let go
Then sorrow / then sickness
Then the shock when you flip it on me
So hollow / so vicious
So afraid I couldn’t let myself see
That I could never be held
Back or up no / I hold myself
Check the rep / yep you know mine well
Forget the rest / let them know my hell
There and back / yet my soul ain’t sell
Kept respect up / the best they fell
Let the rest be the tale they tell
That I was there saying . . .
In these promises broken / deep below
Each word gets lost in the echo
So one last lie / I can see through
This time I finally let you
Go
Test my will / test my heart
Let me tell you how the odds gonna stack up
Ya’ll go hard / I go smart
How’s that working out for y’all in the back, huh?
I’ve seen that frustration
Been crossed and lost and told no
And I’ve come back / unshaken
Let down and lived and let go
So you can let it be known
I don’t hold back I hold my own
I can’t be mapped / I can’t be cloned
I can’t C-flat / it ain’t my tone
I can’t fall back I came too far
Hold myself up and love my scars
Let the bells ring wherever they are
’Cause I was there saying. . .
NO / YOU CAN TELL ’EM ALL NOW
I DON’T BACK UP / I DON’T BACK DOWN
I DON’T FOLD UP AND I DON’T BOW
I DON’T ROLL OVER / DON’T KNOW HOW
I DON’T CARE WHERE THE ENEMIES ARE
CAN’T BE STOPPED / ALL I KNOW / GO HARD
WON’T FORGET HOW I GOT THIS FAR
FOR EVERY TIME SAYING
In these promises broken / deep below
Each word gets lost in the echo
So one last lie / I can see through
This time I finally let you
Go

IN MY REMAINS

Separate
Sifting through the wreckage I can’t concentrate
Searching for a message in the fear and pain
Broken down and waiting for a chance to feel alive
Now in my remains
Are promises that never came
Set this silence free
To wash away the worst of me
Come apart
Falling in the cracks of every broken heart
Digging through the wreckage of your disregard
Sinking down and waiting for a chance to feel alive
Now in my remains
Are promises that never came
Set this silence free
To wash away the worst of me
Like an army
Falling
One by one by one

BURN IT DOWN

The cycle repeated
as explosions broke in the sky
all that I needed
was the one thing I couldn’t find
And you were there at the turn
Waiting to let me know
We’re building it up
To break it back down
We’re building it up
To burn it down
We can’t wait
To burn it to the ground
The colors conflicted
as the flames climbed into the clouds
I wanted to fix this / but
couldn’t stop from tearing it down
And you were caught at the turn
caught in the burning glow
And I was there at the turn
Waiting to let you know
You told me yes / You held me high
And I believed when you told that lie
I played that soldier / You played king
And struck me down when I kissed that ring
You lost that right / to hold that crown
I built you up but you let me down
so when you fall / I’ll take my turn
and fan the flames as your blazes burn

LIES GREED MISERY

Imma be that nail in your coffin
Saying that I softened
I was ducking down to reload
So you can save your petty explanations
I don’t have the patience
Before you even say it I know
You let your pride or your ego
Talk slick to me, no
That is not the way I get down
And look at how you lose your composure
Now let me show ya
Exactly how the breaking point sounds
I WANT TO SEE YOU CHOKE ON YOUR LIES
SWALLOW UP YOUR GREED
SUFFER ALL ALONE IN YOUR MISERY
What is it you want me to tell ya
I’m not the failure
I would rather live and let be
But you came with the right kind of threat to
Push me to let you
Know you can’t intimidate me
You disrespect me so clearly
Now you better hear me
That is not the way it goes down
You did it to yourself and it’s over
Now let me show ya
Exactly how the breaking point sounds
I WANT TO SEE YOU CHOKE ON YOUR LIES
SWALLOW UP YOUR GREED
SUFFER ALL ALONE IN YOUR MISERY
YOU DID IT TO YOURSEL

I’LL BE GONE

Like shining oil this night is dripping down
Stars are slipping down
Glistening
And I’m trying not to think what I’m leaving now
No deceiving now
It’s time you let me know
Let me know
When the lights go out and we open our eyes
Out there in the silence I’ll be gone
I’ll be gone
Let the sun fade out and another one rise
Climbing through tomorrow I’ll be gone
I’ll be gone
This air between us is getting thinner now
Into winter now
Bittersweet
And ’cross that horizon this sun is setting down
You’re forgetting now
It’s time you let me go
Let me go
And tell them I couldn’t help myself
And tell them I was alone
Oh tell me I am the only one
And there’s nothing that can stop me
When the lights go out and we open our eyes
Out there in the silence I’ll be gone
I’ll be gone
Let the sun fade out and another one rise
Climbing through tomorrow I’ll be gone
I’ll be gone
I’ll be gone

VICTIMIZED

No regret for the confidence betrayed
No more hiding in shadow
’Cause I won’t wait for the debt to be repaid
Time has come for you
Victimized
Victimized
Never again
Victimized
They’re acting like they want a riot / it’s a riot I’ll give ’em
As the siren climbs higher on this violent rhythm
For you snakes in the grass / supplying the venom
I ain’t scared of your teeth / I admire what’s in ’em
You been waiting in the shadows there, thinking you’re hidden
But the truth is you don’t have the stomach to get ’em
Go on already, hit ‘em / yeah you gotta be kidding
Wanna talk about a victim / Imma put you there with ’em
VICTIMIZED
VICTIMIZED
NEVER AGAIN
VICTIMIZED
NO

ROADS UNTRAVELED

Weep not for roads untraveled
Weep not for paths left alone
’Cause beyond every bend
Is a long blinding end
It’s the worst kind of pain I’ve known
Give up your heart left broken
And let that mistake pass on
’Cause the love that you lost
Wasn’t worth what it cost
And in time you’ll be glad it’s gone
Weep not for roads untraveled
Weep not for sights unseen
May your love never end
And if you need a friend
There’s a seat here alongside me

SKIN TO BONE

Skin to bone / steel to rust
Ash to ashes / dust to dust
Let tomorrow have its way
With the promises we made
Skin to bone / steel to rust
Ash to ashes / dust to dust
Your deception / my disgust
When your name is finally drawn
I’ll be happy that you’re gone
Ash to ashes / dust to dust
ASH TO ASHES / DUST TO DUST
SKIN TO BONE AND STEEL TO RUST
Right to left / left to right
Night to day and day to night
As the starlight fades to grey
I’ll be marching far away
Right to left and left to right
ASH TO ASHES / DUST TO DUST
SKIN TO BONE AND STEEL TO RUST
Let tomorrow have its way
With the promises betrayed
Skin to bone and steel to rust
Skin to bone and steel to rust
Skin to bone and steel to rust

TINFOIL – INTRO/

POWERLESS

You hid your skeletons when I had shown you mine
You woke the devil that I thought you’d left behind
I saw the evidence, the crimson soaking through
Ten thousand promises
Ten thousand ways to lose
And you held it all
But you were careless to let it fall
You held it all
And I was by your side
Powerless
I watched you fall apart and chased you to the end
I’m left with emptiness that words can not defend
You’ll never know what I became because of you
Ten thousand promises
Ten thousand ways to lose
And you held it all
But you were careless to let it fall
You held it all
And I was by your side
Powerless
