Track Name: Miss America
Shackle my hands
Fall to my knees
Destroying my heart
Your pandemic disease
You’re my leprosy
Diseased
You’re my leprosy
Yeah give me some scars
Pretend like you’re mine
Have a night on the town
Show me a good time

Miss America so bloodless
Build, destroy, then repeat the process

You’ve been indulging too much
Pounded those nails into your hands
You wear a crown upon your head
The guilt will bring you down again
Keep an eye on your back
An eye on the front
A foot in the grave
Cause I’m on the hunt

I can’t get over you
This can’t be the end
Just call it off and make me whole again
Just put this love to rest
In a six foot grave
Track Name: The Levies Have Broken
I’ll do, I’ll do, I’ll do, anything!
And to infinity and back again
Ill shed a tear for all your sins
For all the times you lied to me
I’ll push away these memories
Chew me up
If I could claw my way back to you
I’d give up the glamour and fame
Just chew me up and spit me out
If I could claw my way back to you
I’d give up the glamour and fame

I am a leaf in the wind
Watch me soar
Just say the word ill run right back to you
Like every time before

I’ll do anything, I’ll do anything
Your head and your heart are filled with greed
Each breath in your lungs is a monstrosity
We all know with you, nothing can stay
So no more running I aim to misbehave
You were my everything
You think you still own me?
That I’ll lay down my weapons?
Not a chance in hell no I refuse
Not a chance in hell no I refuse
Not a chance in hell no we refuse

And in that place between sleeping and dreaming
Where I still love you, it’s where I’ll be waiting
And in that place between sleeping and dreaming
Where I still love you, it’s where I’ll be waiting
So move on, move on, I’m begging
Move on, move on, I’m begging
Move on, move on, I’m begging
Move on, move on
Dream on, I’ll make your nightmares come true
Breaking the silence, breaking through
Dream on, I’ll make your nightmares come true
Breaking the silence, breaking through
Track Name: Snake Plissken
We all die alone
All alone
One night as I slept
I met a girl, and away we went
Said follow me on this ride
I’ll take you to the other side
 Then she lifted the curtain
That hangs between here and there
Look through these eyes if you’re certain
To see this world if you dare

Nothing sacred will hold with walls of greed
    
Keep fighting, just one life to live
No more hiding, cause we all die alone
 
And once I saw, how we'd fall
I realized I'd been through it all
She showed me the ways of my past
Froze the clocks then once again asked

“Attention, attention, this is no longer a test
Why bite the hand that feeds you?
Just follow the words on your chest
Attention, attention”
 
Oh great conductors
Oh great conductors 

We all die alone
We all die alone
We all die alone
 
There’s no path but the one you make 
Track Name: It's good to be King
With brand new eyes
I’ve severed the ties
Breaking the bonds keeping me buried alive
Searching for power and fame
But getting lost in this game
So remember
Keep your loved ones close
And your enemies closer
I swear I’ll bring back the world
Even if it kills me first
I can’t help but feel I’m living a lie

This time we’ll make it this time we’ll be remembered
(We’ll live forever)
In this life we’ll conquer
(Here we are as kings)
We’ll reign eternal
We’ll reign eternal

This body aches from the life I lead
Right down to these broken, bloody knees
Gasping for air every breath I take
Lungs filled with dust this body breaks
Another bottle down, another heart is hung
Don’t sleep till the sun comes up
Just paint the skies red with my blood

The view from the heavens is turning me blind
These angels these demons, I’m losing my mind
When death is the only adventure that’s left
Come sail with me let’s put it to the test
Here’s to the bitter end
Track Name: Showtime
This is the start of an empire so load up your arms
We’re taking it all form the earth to the sun
Said you’d love me forever and that’s all I’d need
But you took all this love and turned it all into greed

This is the start of an empire we’re taking control
Every border is ours from the coast to the poles
Said you’d love me forever and that’s all I’d need
But you took all this love and turned it all into greed

Oh, I’ll take my chances on my own
This broken heart is turned to stone
I’ll take my chances on my own
Let’s take our place upon this throne

I will never look back again
I’m never coming home

I’ve been around a time or two
And I’ll tell you right now I’m through with you
There’s no better time and no better place
It’s showtime girl, lets see your true face
Yeah, I’ve seen it all watched al kingdoms fall
From hell and back, hearing Satans call
At the edge of sanity I watched the earth end
Girl, the star of the show- just a fashion trend

This is the end of the world
This is the end of the world
Can’t stop won’t stop
Yeah we’re comin’ for you
