Track Name: Hopeless Hearts
Outside in the cold, no love for the broken one, despite all the hurt that you keep you carry on
Crystals half formed beneath your eyes, as you watch the wreck of your life maker you wait

A Mechanical Heart Is A Hopeless Heart

Snow falls in the streets, concrete shifting beneath your feet, a dirty grey you fall into a broken sleep.
wishing only the best for the dearly departed, you stress the difference between him and me

a mechanical heart is a hopeless heart

a mechanical heart is a hopeless heart
(if only you knew, if only you knew, it was never designed for your kind of eyes)
Track Name: Songbird
Sing your little tin can song my boy we've got forever, i'll leave a mark, unremovable,
spoken dreams and mysteries of futures past and present, you've had the hardest time of all, the world is on your shoulders, and its all yours to carry

inside that home you felt a shiver, as a spirit left you, besides the cold you carry on for the things he told you, and in your head you have a means to an end, lets not pretend anymore, you're made for greater things.

leave your little breadcrumb trail Anatoly, and they will follow, these people are not ready for what you offer them, they might say im insane, but i know different, they might say im insane, im certain they will

inside that home you felt a shiver, as a spirit left you, besides the cold you carry on for the things he told you, and in your head you have a means to an end, lets not pretend anymore, you're made for greater things.

inside that home you felt a shiver, as a spirit left you, besides the cold you carry on for the things he told you, and in your head you have a means to an end, lets not pretend anymore, you're made for greater things.
Track Name: Broken Wheels
Your turning time has run a course your maker gone for now, no one to lift you up and fix you when you're down

Inside your rusting shell, your broken wheels won't work, you feel as human as you ever will, little broken down boy

my sympathies oh dearest boy, you're all alone and how will you believe the words that fall out from my mouth?

Inside your rusting shell, your broken wheels won't work, you feel as human as you ever will, little broken down boy

And i will help you as i can, apart from what others might say, you have my vote of confidence, just get out while you can, your numbers vivid your name is given for you, i will do this for you

Inside your rusting shell, your broken wheels won't work, you feel as human as you ever will, little broken down boy
Track Name: The Participation Plague
We are all a part of something that doesn't need us,. desperately clinging to life, if you thought you were special you were wrong, we are all the same, and we'll all end up in the same place

they called it the line in the sand where in the great divide, we will learn to fight, there's blood in the river, so you better not drink from it, there is a plague and we are all a part of it

they look upon me with hate deep instilled, what did i dop wrong by them? they want to take me apart, I'm a crime they say, and i don't belong

they called it the line in the sand where in the great divide, we will learn to fight, there's blood in the river, so you better not drink from it, there is a plague and we are all a part of it

besides the lies i forget to take your name, a passing stranger feels compelled to take the blame

and with that i say goodbye, my gears no longer turn for you, this broken body of mine will cause no further worry

they called it the line in the sand where in the great divide, we will learn to fight, theres blood in the river, so you better not drink from it, there is a plague and we are all a part of it
Track Name: My Directive
So this is what i am, a monster in your eyes, for the moment i saw the cracks in your disguise, and this is what i'll be, no listener to your lies, i will fight it, or the worst come over me

So this is what you want, to watch me crash and burn, but before then i still have things to learn, and here is what i'll do, all in spite of you, i will find that word and it will set me free

this is my directive, to find what the maker wanted, hidden between the numbers, a reason to go on

So this is where it starts, within my beating heart, where the future must lie uncertainly, and off i go alone, step from stone to stone, for a father i wish i never lost

this is my directive, to find what the maker wanted, hidden between the numbers, a reason to go on

(Ba, Ba, Ba, Ba Da Da)

this is my directive, to find what the maker wanted, hidden between the numbers, a reason to go on
