Release 05:06
RELEASE (Joe Deninzon) You can hunt love but it will find you as soon as you lay down your guns Surrounded by thoughts that can blind you of being the unfortunate one You can chase fate but it will catch you by sneaking on you from behind You can pray for someone to save you but miss out on all of the signs (aaah) Lay down your weapons Release your hold Don’t try to fight what you can’t control The wave will push you home to the shore The water knows what you’re looking for If you chase storms they’re gonna catch you They’ll rape you and clarify The things never really mattered too big for your naked eye You can smother all your possessions but they’ll only turn to sand They’ll slip slowly through your fingers and leave you with empty hands (aaah) Lay down your weapons Release your hold Don’t try to fight what you can’t control The wave will push you to friendly shores The water knows how to get you home get you home get you home Inherit all that you have conquered The rebel becomes the king The life spent on every ocean You’ve not learned a single thing

THE MISSING LINK (Joe Deninzon/Mazz Swift) This rain keeps falling I drown in my drink Spend my life searching For the missing link The phone keeps ringing But I’m on the brink This chains as strong as The missing link Hungry don’t have to swallow Thirsty don’t have to drink Broke I don’t have to borrow Blinded don’t have to blink Lonely don’t want to see you Stoned dancing in the rain I slowly fall through this dream Holding back each silent scream Stare out the window Can’t face the truth Get buried under this Burden of proof The moon is rising In the sand I sink My legs weighed down by The missing link Freezing don’t ask for blankets Pierced I don’t feel the pain An itch I don’t have to scratch it I’ll find another vein Broken don’t have to mend it You keep the other half I slowly fall through this wall And in the darkness hear you call me I’m burning but you can’t help me You’ll never put out the fire I lost my self in this maze In every cloud I see your face The clock keeps ticking There's no time to think I think I've melted the missing link

Tech Support 02:21
Tech Support By Joe Deninzon (vs1) I went to the shrink yeah I went to the doctor I needed to upgrade my memory and hard drive I could not connect yeah I got no reception I had to restart myself empty the trash bin (pc1) It could be crossed wires or faulty internals Cause deep in the night I could smell something burning I keep seeing warnings of failures and crashes And sometimes I fall asleep every ten seconds (chorus) Help me baby you’re my tech support Help me baby you’re my last resort Everybody’s keeping me on hold Help me baby you’re my tech support (vs 2) I traded my red car and got me a blue one I wish I could trade my head out for a new one The screen is too dark and there’s smoke and sparks flying It could be a meltdown I’m crashing and dying (pc2) And last time I payed to inject a hard reset A new kind of virus was programmed and preset It swallowed the spam and it spit out the passwords When I get turned on it knows my secret answers (chorus) (solos) (pc3) So open the desktop and scan all the files Some trash I’ve had backed up since I was a child And try to delete the mistakes that were made Press erase and undo so this boy can be saved (chorus)

Climbing 04:36
CLIMBING (Joe Deninzon/Mack Price) I’m so tired of shadowboxing Trying to make something out of nothing You’ve reached the summit but I’m still trying You’re at the top but I’m still climbing It’s not that I can’t face the facts That I ain’t found that pot of gold It’s just that I’m resigned to live With all your friends looking over my shoulder Cause I’m still climbing I’m so tired of exaggerating So they can see what they want to be seeing All those nights I spent sleepwalking Roads paved with gold that lead to nothing I see the writing on the wall Chasing the sun we’re getting older But I refuse to live my life With the whole damn world looking over my shoulder Cause I’m still climbing

The House Always Wins (Joe Deninzon/Mack Price) I’ve seen all the poor old folks going broke Slot cherries in their eyes Throwing away their pension money For that ever elusive prize The $1.99 all you can eat buffets The complimentary cocktails Keepin ‘em coming till you Can’t count the cards no more No more… The house always wins The house always wins You lose your shirt and then you lose your skin I’ve seen all the locked out kids lose touch In their cowboy hats With empty eyes So hungry to free their minds Wandering this ghost town like vagabonds Wasting away at the arcades and cinema Till they gamble their time away And land at the recruiting station More coins in the machine The house always wins The house always wins You lose your shirt and then you lose your skin…

Gods 04:18
GODS (Joe Deninzon) The bigger the pain the more gods we need The brighter the lights yeah the faster we speed We cut way to deep to make ourselves bleed The more gods we need The bigger the lie the more truth we seek Til you’ve seen so much truth you can’t hardly speak You think you’re so strong you’re protecting the weak From the truth that they seek The bigger the pain the more gods we need The bigger the mouth the new truth is told To numb the reality breaking the mold Of in with the new and out with the old The new truth is told Denial is a river that flows in our head And deep is the ocean where we make our bed And sometimes it drowns us when we break the bread And sleep like the dead The bigger the pain the more gods we need

One Foot in the Next World (Joe Deninzon) I looked into your eyes last night Your Pupils were just neon lights Went off into the netherworld With only your words to entertain us You say you see the end of days You lead us through a tragic maze You stand up for the little guy you Quench all our thirst and try to drain us You've got… One foot in the next world One foot stuck in this life you got One hand washing my back And one hand twisting the knife We pay your dues you speak in tongues Just looking out for number one A worldview based on prophesies And broken ideas to disengage us A false tear for the powerless The high road to a false address On judgement day would you confess to Losing it all you made your choices You've got… One foot in the next world One foot stuck in this life you got One hand washing my back And one hand twisting the knife

The Prism 05:48
The Prism (Joe Deninzon) You’re seeing things through the wrong prism And your prism is just a prison And if you don’t adjust the mirror You’re heading for a head on collision Lights on take an intermission Your thoughts plague you with indecision Second-guessing your stated mission while we don’t have a pot to piss in Put it off til tomorrow We’re still drowning in sorrow Break it all and you borrow We’re still drowning in sorrow You’re seeing things through the wrong prism And your prism is just a prison Take a knife through the nervous system You’re breaking up the house we live in You try to sell us on your big vision But your vision is deep division What you preach is a false religion No intellect or intuition Put it off til tomorrow We’re still drowning in sorrow Break it all and you borrow We’re still drowning in sorrow (instrumental) Put it off til tomorrow We’re still drowning in sorrow Break it all and you borrow Put it off til tomorrow Put it off til tomorrow We’re still drowning in sorrow Break it all and you borrow We’re still drowning in sorrow
