Track Name: Better
you tell yourself whatever you need to to feel better
one more time breathing my air became and act against you
i'll be the first to admit I feel more human separate

chorus
its not always holding on
the show of strength can be
the grace to let it go
the grace to let it go

your time is occupied with conquests that you would swear on
I can't afford to buy in to all these faithless wagers
I won't be the one to pass on such depraved behavior

chorus
Track Name: Let You Down
we get as far as we can trying to do our best
you know I never wanna let you down
scrutinize each other trying to pass the test
you know I never wanna let you down

some day you know I might x2
some day you know I might alright

some day you know I may x2
some day you know I may so I'll just try and it gently

we're so misguided to think that life is fair
I won't leave it up to anyone but you
maybe in the end theres not much to compare
you know I never wanna let you down

some day you know I might x2
some day you know I might alright

some day you know I may x2
some day you know I may so I'll just try and it gently
if theres a reason to resent me no I wouldn't take that from you
Track Name: Agenda
agenda

forgive these ancient impasses
they can only promise you damage

holding out for the moment
we lose track of the hours
I wouldn't waste your time
I wouldn't waste your time
when I have mine

how could I ever betray you
when you don't reveal your agenda

chorus
Track Name: Go Easy
I have earned my share of failure
running from heart ache so pure
I'm not saying I'm not scared
just don't deny me my turn

Go easy on me just don't go too easy

I'm not addicted to the conflict
but I won't be shy when I see it
I pray you can help me recognize
one more way i'm not perfect

go easy on me just don't go too easy
Track Name: Health and Happiness
I don't have time for your vendettas I can barely manage mine x4
I wish you health and happiness now get the hell away from me
I won't have time to face your enemies the list is just too long x4
I wish you health and happiness now get the hell away from me
Track Name: Invisible Man
you can't open their eyes
they'll miss you every time
no one asks for your name

they pile on the culpable acts
and earn the willingness to combat
still they demand your restraint

I feel the anger pumping from your heart
typecast as strangers into the roles they want
I feel the anger pumping from your heart
prepared for danger coming from these scars

we all know the age old taunt
privileges we can't help flaunt
now we must measure this rift
when you pay the final cost
theres only one way to respond
its all of our duty to resist
Track Name: Non-Violence
what happens when you get your way
more bloodshed is all that it could create

You will not be the final one x4
to get your
vengeance x3
it just won't end this

hate makes you so blind you can't see
cutting down every chance for peace

You will not be the final one x4
to get your
vengeance x3
it just won't end this
Track Name: No Escape
waves of distraction swirling
on the surface of your mind
add up the wasted efforts
in the struggle you seem so blind

wore ambition on your sleeve
played right into their hand
can't control what you think you need
feel so far behind demand
