Track Name: Puppet of Lust
A symbol of everything I hate
And for your apologies, it's way too late
Passed around like a dirty needle
You're given to people
Excuses feeble

While I was in agony you had your fun
Thought I was happy, how could I fall so far
I made a mistake

You give yourself out like an invitation
A puppet lust, give in to temptation
Given to greed every single way
In every single bed you lay

A game we play in which she cheated
He thought he lost, so he retreated
She was later exposed
From his mind, she was disposed

"Give me happiness, I'll give you some"
I gave it to you but I was given none
I made a mistake

And as I tried to warn my best friend
That he was nothing but a means to an end
Wasted hours and golden trust
On a symbol of hate
A puppet of lust
Track Name: White Noise
Alone
She speaks in tongues of old
She's made of fool's gold
A spectacle to behold
And her razor, it's so cold

It's in the eyes
She'll make your demons cry
Her will, they will abide
Her words they live by
'Cause their sovereign they can't defy

A tangle of thorns
A cherub with horns
A kid with a gun
Just having some fun
She'll point it at you
And you'll pull the trigger

Disguise
She has many faces
She moves in mysterious places
She leaves no traces
Of the deeds she's perpetrating

Lies
Then looks of false surprise
As if to imply
That what you have surmised
Isn't right before your eyes

A snake in a cradle
A wolf in a stable
The knife of betrayal
Ready and able
She'll point it at you
And you'll pull the trigger

Show me that back honey
Draw me an 'x' honey
Mmmm just like that honey
Right between the blades

A tangle of thorns
A cherub with horns
A kid with a gun
Just having some fun
She'll point it at you
And you'll pull the trigger
Track Name: Loose
It's been a long week now, my friend
And I know you want to let loose
Let your hair down
Again

See you later friend, I'll catch you 'round the bend
Get your stuff together, show's about to end
It goes on and on and on

It's the same routine again and again
And I know you want to let loose and paint the town red
Again

See you later friend, I'll catch you 'round the bend
Get your stuff together, show's about to end
It goes on and on and on

A caged beast entertains
But take a seat 'cause you're not to blame
It's not your problem
Anyway

Can't you see that lately your life's been a broken record
But no, you want to let loose
World's upside down
Again

See you later friend, I'll catch you 'round the bend
Get your stuff together, show's about to end
It goes on and on and on

A caged beast entertains
But take a seat 'cause you're not to blame
Free your mind, break these chains, now
Don't take a seat
'Cause you're to blame
It IS your problem
Anyway

What's your problem, anyway?
Track Name: Ozymandias
Sometimes it's hard to say goodbye
And every time there's a reason why
As people come in and people go out
Of your life
Time looks on sharpening his knife

Sometimes it's hard to say goodbye
All our promises, the whitest of lies
Before we know it we're on our backs
With pleading eyes
Just one more day
Oh, just one more night

All my gifts I must destroy
Of my creations I must be coy
I'm to blame for all your pain
And for your soul, I stand to gain
All you have and all you've got, washed away
In the face of the clock

Sometimes it's hard to say goodbye
But every time there's a reason why
As people live and go about their lives
Time looks on, his creations rise

Heads or tails, life has two sides
But don't be fooled, while you try
You can't run and hide
