Track Name: Tip of the Spiral
My mind is wrought with the things I’ve not done
Guilt is my poison, cold to the touch
It’s in my eyes, I can taste it on my tongue
Doubt is my god and fear is my crutch

Tip of the spiral
It’s driving me wild
That things won’t ever change
Tip of the spiral
It’s driving me wild
We’re right back where we started

Deep in the dark of my denial
I see the lies I’ve been telling myself
Echoing back in a chamber of sound
There’s only regret and no hope for tomorrow

Tip of the spiral
It’s driving me wild
That things won’t ever change
Tip of the spiral
It’s driving me wild
We’re right back where we started
Track Name: Everything's Dopamine
Your voice breaks the silence
And fills my head with its daily vices
I’m a slave to my desire,
Tied up on a burning pyre

It spreads like a virus,
The sweet drink of a goddess
No thoughts, no in-between
A rush of dopamine

Heads down as we stumble
We pay the bill for our troubles
With each touch and every glance
An ancient romance

There’s nothing left to confess
No worries or regrets
Just love, bold and clean
Or is everything just dopamine?

I hope there’s something that we’re missing
It’s not a pill we were taking
Just the waste from a machine
If everything is dopamine
Track Name: Call of the Void
There’s something in my veins and I swear it knows my name
I want to run and hide but it'll find me all the same
I can taste it on my tongue, I can feel it in my lungs
The medicine that helps me when I’m high strung

Oh, take me away
Warm my skin, close my eyes, make me feel numb inside
I can’t help but give in
To the call, call of the void
I have no choice

My body meets its fate as I enter the fray
It all begins to fall as my world starts to shake
And it leaves me with no choice, I just let it have its way
I’m hollow to the core, with nothing left to break

Oh, take me away
Warm my skin, close my eyes, make me feel numb inside
I can’t help but give in
To the call, call of the void
I have no choice

Take a hit, take a sip
Stop this fuckin' guilt trip
All I hear is white noise
All I touch is destroyed
I just need a getaway
A perfect life to imitate
But it’s easy, I take it
Easy, just take it

Oh, take me away
Warm my skin, close my eyes, make me feel numb inside
I can’t help but give in
To the call, call of the void
I have no choice
Track Name: Dim Light
By dim light I can see my time passing by
I try to stop the growing thought
That I may never reach my prime

I hesitate and I can’t think straight
But my mind still crawls as the sunset falls
And I sit back to imagine my decline

The end’s in sight and nothing feels right
As the sun descends and the quiet settles in
I close my eyes and wait for tomorrow
