Track Name: Set-Up
The pot filled with gold fell right into your hands
And you fought over every single dime
You watched as the protests turned establishment
And you robbed all the kittens of their claws

Your audacity on call
You tell us we don’t care at all

Well fuck your good intentions
They don’t make you right or strong
We’re stuck with your inventions
You’ve set us all up for the fall

The water you dammed up sits so far away
And the walls that you climbed you built yourselves
Recall how the golden age seemed temperate
Then recall marketing your avarice

Your audacity, your gall
You tell us we don’t care anymore

Well fuck your good intentions
They don’t make you right or strong
We’re stuck with your inventions
You’ve set us all up for the fall
Track Name: Careless
It's only gonna get worse
I'm only gonna get left behind
Momentum thus far coerced
Turning the lights on won't help the blind

I'll get it right
Someday soon
I’ll feel contrite
But careless

How long
Will I
Leave it to circumstances
When the chance that I won't get it right is high

How long
Will I
Leave it to circumstances
When the chance that I won't get it right is

Unlikely to be reversed
Until ambition and aim combine

I'll get it right
Someday soon
I’ll feel contrite
But careless

How long
Will I
Leave it to circumstances
When the chance that I won't get it right is high
Track Name: Into Place
Fall
Fall right into place
Fit right in

Distracted with make believe
Indolent
Filled with rage yet incomplete
And absent

This is who we are
For all that it’s worth
At least we feel small

This is who we are
For all that it’s worth
We did nothing wrong

Give
Give up when it’s hard
Abandon

Distracted with make believe
Indolent
Filled with rage yet incomplete
And absent
Frustrated by missing needs
Deficient
Fueled by egos and their greed
Tragic

This is who we are
For all that it’s worth
At least we feel small

This is who we are
For all that it’s worth
We did nothing wrong
Track Name: Traffic at Midnight
Detained, not moving
Veins strangulate

Who makes all the bad
Decisions, decisions?
Who fails to understand alliances?
And while we sit and wait
We get to contemplate
Results of this bad
decision

I can’t quite see straight
Rage constipates

Who makes all the bad
Decisions, decisions?
Who fails to understand alliances?
And while we sit and wait
We get to contemplate
Results of this bad
decision

You’ve mistaken me for someone else
