Track Name: The Death and Resurrection of a Salesman
When fortune comes knocking
at the door of another
just around the corner
they'll be waiting, waiting
conjuring up the amazing

And over time you'll see it
for what it is
a matter of convenience
if it's all the same to you

Bleeding headlines
turn a blind eye
everyone's living a lie
lone socialite speaks of good times
everyone's living a lie

Constant stimulation
the rebirth of a nation
the death and resurrection of a salesman
let go, let go
everything here must go

And over time you'll see it
for what it is
a matter of convenience
if it's all the same to you

Bleeding headlines
turn a blind eye
everyone's living a lie
lone socialite speaks of good times
everyone's living a lie
everyone's living a lie

Everybody knows something
everybody knows nothing
everybody
everybody knows something
everybody knows

Bleeding headlines
turn a blind eye
everyone's living a lie
lone socialite speaks of good times
everyone's living a lie

Everybody's living a lie
everyone's living a lie
everybody's living a lie
Track Name: A Lunatic High
Lay waste to the wasted
false tide rising innuendos
a mad rush for moral high ground
where no one hears a sound

Cradle the machine
deny everything
a lunatic high
to black out the sky above

Dress it up just the way you like it
a room full of old disguises
so what if it jogs the memory
it doesn't mean a thing to me

Cradle the machine
deny everything
smile for the searchlight
gives life like sunshine
a lunatic high
to black out the sky above

Black out the sky above
Black out the sky above
Track Name: Crisis Actor
One more bullet
one more swinging door
one last moment
before you disappear here
where the darkness looks alive

Next life, new scene
a fever dream sequence
something in the air
a cautious wind just breathe it in
where the darkness comes to life

Running faster
running away
crisis actor
just under the overrated
thrilled to be nominated
overlooked, overdone, neverending
it's just begun

Take this feeling
take it far away
unconscious division
cold wishes and starless skies
dead eyes brighter than the sun

Fire denier
consequence of indifference
parade all the way
lead us right back to square one
sweet dreams from the panic room

Running faster
running away
crisis actor
just under the overrated
thrilled to be nominated
overlooked, overdone, neverending
the battle's won
