Track Name: Bark
Yout hink you're dealing in life, you're just ensuring death
And it's gotten out of hand
The voiceless cry, as we let them die
'Cause of your selfishness
And it isn't discussed, removed from focus
Watch them shift the blame
To the innocent, the mistreated
All seen as the same

Now the fea sets in
They're panicking while you're profiting
On misinformation, emotional legislation
And it's nothing new
Tale as old as time
More in cages every day
Paying for your crimes
Is it ignorance? Apathy?
Sadistic hearts? Endless greed?
You're the ones who should be put down
The ones we just don't need

You sentenced them to die
And they'll have no idea why
An execution with no crime
The discrimination's gone to far this time

The selfishness runs deep
Lives turned to commodities
So they can live some unfounded notions
So they can have their precious breeds

I hear the voiceless cry
As we just sit back and let them die.
I hear the voiceless cry.
We can't just sit back and let them die
Track Name: Surface
She likes looking at the surface, because it reflects the Sun
She says it shines like a thousand twinkling stars, but I'd bet anyone
It's her reflection she sees, hair blowing in a soft breeze
Smiling with ease, enjoying thoughtless peace

But there's more there and it's close enough to touch
Just dip your hand in the water, and don't think too much
Oh but the water is cold, and the ripple distorts
And it goes on forever, moves down and away
Endless rocks, bottom feeders and waste
Forests, fish, colors, and grace
And it's so big, too big, too big to bear
And it's simpler, and calmer, and nice not to care

Maybe someday we'll wake up
And we can all dive in
Track Name: You-statements
The same messages, the same tones
All the same yet I feel so alone
I've been here before, said this before
Seen this before, can I take any more?
Angry and accusing, the literary "you"
Is what we're abusing to avoid harder truths
"You're the snake," "You're the one who's changed"
We call others out, while never looking in

And you eat it up
Keep your distance from
Any honest thought
That could damage your front

And I'm angry too
Angry at me, angry at you
But we all suffer, and it goes unaddressed
When we only focus on the flaws of the rest

The truth is we're afraid
Because the "me" and "I" offer too much insight

Can't show that we're weak
Our vulnerabilities, our insecurities

I hope we'll someday see
Think a little bigger, look into the mirror

This "you" can only be me
This "you" has always be me
