Track Name: Mass Produced
Machines and robots that are perfectly aligned
The floor is flooded with cold artificial light
This is a factory and you are trapped inside
There is no entrance and there's no escape in sight

All this machinery's the scenery you find
And now it's easier to leave it all behind

You wanted nothing but you found you had it all
But still it seemed that you were missing something small
This is your life, spread out upon this factory floor
You're at the climax of your search for something more

But this machinery's the scenery you find
And now it's easier to leave it all behind
You can let go what is now only in your mind
You stand alone upon your own production line

All this machinery's the scenery you find
And now it's easier to leave it all behind
You can let go what is now only in your mind
You stand alone upon your own production line
And this machinery's the scenery you choose
And now you realise that there's nothing left to lose
Because this factory is everything you do
Because this whole production line belongs to you
Track Name: Light
There are no mirrors in my home
I keep the curtains drawn all day
I do not like to be alone
But I don't know any other way

Don't make me go without
Don't leave, I need you now
Some things I didn't ever say

You only see the face I tear up every night
Sometimes it never felt so right
You'll never see the fear that keeps me out of sight
I will not step into the light

I said I do not need your smile
These words are not the way I feel
To tell the truth is not my style
Some truths, I'm dying to reveal

Don't think I don't know you
Don't tell me what to do
Some things, it kills to keep concealed

You only see the face I tear up every night
Sometimes it never felt so right
You've always been the fear that keeps me out of sight
I will not step into the light
Track Name: Sum
Help me replace
Features from my face
Please take my name
I want us to be the same

We will become
Greater than our sum
You will soon find
We're better combined

We will shine through
Part me and part you
I am just one
But we're superhuman
Track Name: Mixed Messages
Sent a message out to nowhere, once again
And there's no reply but silence, that I recall
I've been living without a reason, since I don't know when
Don't want to write another message saying nothing at all

If I chose the words correctly, would you say yes?
I dream that we can be like that some day
I'd dedicate my life, and nothing less
And we could change the world in some small way

I didn't think that you could bring me down
Didn't think that you could bring me down
I didn't think that you could bring me down so far

I didn't think that you could bring me down
Didn't think that you could bring me down
Didn't think that you could bring me down
I didn't think that you could bring me down so far
Track Name: From a Distance
I've always wanted to be you
If only I could do the things you do
Wish I could do it all again
To change the things that I've been through

And in the photograph of me
There's things I wish I wouldn't be
The truth is not a work of art
But from a distance I can see

The image burnt into my mind
Is something I have never known
And though my fortune's often kind
The beauty's never been my own

Everything that I regret
I will ask you to forget
Let's pretend we never met
Just how I'd hoped for it to end

And if you have a change of heart
Please will you play a bigger part?
Another story soon to start
But still the mirror stares at me

The image burnt into my mind
Is someone I have never seen
And no-one I will ever find
Just something that I could have been
Track Name: Cold
All you know's in their control
Every truth and every act
If they say I've lost my soul
Then that makes it a fact

They provide the light of day
And every blessing we receive
They can send the night away
The world will end, if they believe
They believe

I'm safe from your harm
Or that's what I'm told
We can hide from their lies
Let lies grow old
I'm safe in your arms
With my life on hold
We can hide from the sunrise
But I feel so cold
Track Name: Slip and Fall
If life is getting you down
I'll be your friend
You started out on the ground
And that's where you'll end

You missed the call
Slip and fall

You always have gone without
Someday you'll win
Well there's an easy way out
And no way back in

You could end it all
Slip and fall
Track Name: Correction
Stayed in bed 'til half past three
I have no reason to be awake
Please do not depend on me
Soon my mind will surely break

Then the reasons change again

Stayed in bed 'til half past four
Leave my house without detection
I have no life any more
Think that I'm in need of correction

Then the reasons change again
And I know what happens then

Just keep walking 'til I'm lost
If only I could choose a direction
Now my actions have a cost
Think that I'm in need of correction

Then the reasons change again
As they have for far too long
Turn the amp right up to ten
Lock my door and play this song
Track Name: You Wish
You're better than me, in many ways
Almost every single thing that you do
Makes me jealous of you
You're better than me, any day
And there aren't many things you haven't got
But I have something you have not

You're so much better than me, it makes me cry
Your perfection makes you beautiful
In ways that are unusual
You're better than me, I can't deny
And I'd trade everything for what you've got
But I have something you have not

And you wish you weren't so great
You wish you had a pitiful existence just like me
You wish you had my hate
You wish you had my failure and my negativity

You're better than me, I can't deny
And though you're the perfect person that I'm not
I have things you haven't got

And you wish that you could fall
You wish that you were cold and unapologetic
You wish you'd want it all
You wish that you were arrogant and egocentric
You wish you weren't so great
You wish that you were spiteful, small, and so pathetic
You wish you had my hate
You wish that you were cynical and condescending

And you'd trade your charisma for my sorry ending
Track Name: Finishing Touches
Blue lights with no sense of urgency
Red night sky takes you away from me
White chalk in place of the Winter frost
Yellow police line says "do not cross"

I have no time to be friends with you
No time for work that I have to do
No time to waste, got to make this shine
I live in fear of that red night sky

What if it ended, right here, right now?
Could I complete this, some way, somehow?
I have no deadline, and time to kill
I'm making finishing touches still
