Track Name: Other
class: the wedge between a splintered society / instilled / entrenched / we're pitted against each other / the other / the enemy / divided we stand / it's us and them / them / the other ones / them them / the enemy / no grit no calloused hands / them them them / the other ones / we've painted ourselves this picture / for richer / for poorer / for better / for worse / it's us versus them / them / the other ones / them them / the enemy / no grit no calloused hands / them them them / the other ones / do you feel the gap between us all / give up the fear that if we jump we fall / can't see past our point of view / past the frames that we are confined / these states these warring sides / the only real border is the poverty line / them them / the other ones / them them / the enemy / no grit no calloused hands / them them them / the other ones
Track Name: Factory Settings
tread on the tires / we've been wired to stay aligned / pushed down production lines / handed the manual / instructions underlined / flip the switch / autonomize this life / set the dials yourself instead of being the machine / situated / calibrated / safety checked / stalled out / recall defective settings that were factory installed / flip the switch / autonomize this life / set the dials yourself instead of being the machine / i will never align / force the message into the minds of the masses manufactured / who are subject to inspection inside / it's a faulty design / i will never align
Track Name: Script Shift
saw the flaws from the audition / so i script shifted from a work of fiction / rather suffer to serve my soul / than be indentured in a role / for which you were cast / cause the world must be small through the holes in your mask / is it you or has life got you stuck in character / rest assured until you shut the curtain / saw the flaws from the audition / so i script shifted from a work of fiction / rather suffer to serve my soul / than be indentured in a role / "don't stress / we know what's best for you" / who says you have to follow suit / a costume pinned loosely / i broke free / you can't stitch it to fit me / i slipped out from the cover of a shroud / and took a bow
Track Name: Spilled
lost at a high velocity / tossed around / back and forth / from birth to death / entropic mess disguised as order / but somehow i was given input / but somehow i gave it a stir / spilled in the right direction / fulfilled by imperfection / existence is a planned canvas / yet sketches are stained / but somehow i found fitting broad strokes / but somehow i have found my way / and again i am spilled in the right direction / fulfilled by imperfection / but somehow i have found my way / i keep it / don't brush off dust sprawled on the walls you painted / don't cough it up without seeing what you could have taken / i keep it
