Track Name: Borderline
This state i'm in - I can feel contempt from within.
borderline euphoria; I can't decide If I'm on the other side.

Consequence I'm in - a victim of my circumstance -
I asked for this. I pushed, you pulled away.
Track Name: Orphan
I haven't seen you in weeks, please don't make this about me.
this idle time we waste holds too much weight.
a truth i'll choose to hide behind with a simple,
"'doin fine."
Track Name: Readjusting
when you talk I can't help but listen,
readjusting simple gestures for a sense of acclamation.
there's a fault line in my brain; paralyzed in a state of constant aftershock -
animating a virtual reality is taking it's toll on me and all those surrounding.
it's really not my fault, i'm hardwired to be this way.

But when you look inside yourself, what do you think about?

I'm neurotic without purpose, but the structure is too tight;
I lose sight of the floor and start to feel inanimate.
So, I prescribe some self advice. Rehearsing the application, I finally start to feel sane.

What's my motivation to be anything but ironic?
Track Name: Lions! Lions! Lions!
lips loose enough to speak your mind -
say it now. we're running out of time.
holding your own while it all comes down.
far too proud to show your doubt.

I thought you'd put up a fight,
but I won't let you.
I thought with you that it'd die,
but it wont.

I'm standing on the tip of your tongue,
balancing until you push me off.
