Track Name: Your Favorite Color
Try to send me off to war
but don't think I'm gonna show
Try to beat me to the floor
but I think I'll have a go

If their minds could only know

Your favorite color is one you've never seen
You fight for freedom but don't know what the word means
You don't know what the word means
You just know of the word

Try to make it like it before
Yeah, you'll never let it grow
Try to tell me what's in store
but I guess I'll never know

If our minds could only know

Your favorite color is one you've never seen
You fight for freedom but don't know what the word means
You don't know what the word means
You just know of the word

We're called "Entitled" due to promises our teachers couldn't keep,
devouring friends and coworkers, drinking down synthetic sleep,
to get and edge in this capitalistic race by any means,
cause God forbid we all wake up from this American dream.
Track Name: Machinery
My body moves like machinery every time you cast that gaze at me: rigid yet methodical
I've known about you in every way and how you search for all the words I don't say
Let me explain

The truth is just so overwhelming; the only thing I wish you'd tell me is "No! I promise I won't let you go. I swear that you won't even notice the change in my heart taking place. You won't; you won't know".

My love is there like the scenery; just a shade of what you think it could be:
Vivid and palpable

You've known about me in every way
and how I hide from all the things you told me
Well, all the same

The truth is just so overwhelming; the only thing I wish you'd tell me is "No! I promise I won't let you go. I swear that you won't even notice the change in my heart taking place. You won't; you won't know".

I'll give you the reason: I'm made in this way
I'm made in this way
I'm made of mistakes
Track Name: Why Do You Want Me
I guess I'm saying it now but I've known all my life
I've got a mouth like a gun and a face like a knife

Do you want me? Do you want me?
Why do you want me?

I've stolen everything good that I have, I'm a thief
The only that I found and can't take is belief

Do you want me? Do you want me?
Why do you want me if this is what it takes?

I used to be set apart, now I blend with the crowds
I got my feet in the fire and my head in the clouds

Do you want me? Do you want me?
Why do you want me?

I got a pit in my throat and a hole in my chest
Yeah, they got to me first, do you want what is left?

Do you want me? Do you want me?
Why do you want me if this is what it takes?

Why do you want me?
