CHRYSALIS - lyrics

DECOMPOSED 
You used to be my friend 
We used to be a hundred things 
We used to be tight 
Up late every night 
Talking bout anything 
The smiles have come and gone 
It used to light up my world 
But since you came and went 
On and off again 
My life is just one big blur 

Through the lessons where no one grows 
Our love lays dying 
We decompose 
Like the downward spiral we both have chose 
Our love lays dying 
We decompose 

Somehow near an end 
Somewhere round a thousand tears 
We do things out of spite 
Still I put up a fight 
I’ve given my blood, sweat and fears 
 

Through the lessons where no one grows 
Our love lays dying 
We decompose 
Like the downward spiral we both have chose 
Our love lays dying 
We decompose 

The demons pursue 
It’s all because of you 
The lack of contact 
You stabbed me in the back 
The lies are still ringing true 

Through the lessons where no one grows 
Our love lays dying 
We decompose
The downward spiral we both have chose 
Our love lays dying 
We decompose 

Crumble like a stone 
Torn from flesh and bone 
Relentless decay 
Eroding over night 
Please just leave my life 

Like the petals falling from a black rose 
Our love lays dying 
We decompose 
All of our friend and all of our foes 
Our love lays dying 
We decompose 

Crumble like a stone 
Torn from flesh and bone 
Relentless decay 
Eroding over night 
Please just leave my life 

 

CALL IN DEAD 
I’m gonna call in dead 
I’m gonna call in dead 
I’m gonna call in dead 
Yeah that’s what I said 
I’m gonna call in dead 
Gonna stay in bed 
Don’t wanna go to work 
Rather read a book on a beach or at home 
Gonna take the ringer off on my phone 
And cook 
Play a game on my Nook 
Stay off of my Facebook 
Dead 

I’m gonna call in sick 
I’m gonna call in sick 
I’m gonna call in sick 
I think that will be slick 
I’m gonna call in sick 
Come up with something quick 
I think I have a cold or a bug or the flu 
Or a stomach ache 
Sneezing 
Allergies too 
Or strep 
My cough is contagious 
Fever is high 
Would that be audacious? 
Sick 

I just wanna spend the day with you 
I don’t care what we do 
I just wanna get away with you 
Hop a plane to New York or L.A. 
Chicago or London 
Even Santa Fe 

I think I’m feeling queasy 
Maybe a little uneasy 
I have to call in ill 
Think I have the chills 
Must been something I ate 
Isn’t this just great 
Now I’m so irate 
So much for playing hooky 
Sneaking around 
I’m gasping and puking 
Blowing my nose 
Shaking and pooping 
Groggy and foggy 
I’m absolutely 
Dead 

Lets get sick together 
Lets get sick together 
I’m gonna infect you 
If that’s ok with you 
It's gonna take dedication 
And lots of medication 
Let’s go anyway 
Head for Las Vegas 
Get in a car 
See where it takes us 
Get on a boat 
Or get in a bus 
Give it to everyone that is around us 
We took the day off and then we abused it 
We feel like death but it was so worth it 
In the morning paper the headline read 
Two got fired for calling in dead 
Dead 

Call in dead 
Call in dead 
Call in dead 

 

KILOTON HEART 
Verbal displacement 
In such a wrong way 
The synapses fire 
And then ricochet 
Like gas on a flame 
Like lightning to the rain 
Only people like you can get me this way 
I’m at it again 

Whoa 
I’ve got a kiloton heart 
No need to argue 
Whoa 
One thousand kilotons 
Heart 

Tables are turning 
Impulses up my spine
Blood pressure rising 
Reflexes serpentine 
Like a train with no brakes 
Or the snap of an earthquake 
People like you always get me this way 
I’m at it a again 

Whoa 
I’ve got a kiloton heart 
I’m coming after you 
Whoa 
I’ll drop the bomb on you 

A time bomb ticking in me 
Still you push my buttons some more 
Step off 
Back off 
Shut your mouth or I’m gonna explode 
This rage I can’t control 

Whoa 
I’ve got a kiloton heart 
No need to argue 
Whoa 
A thousand kilotons of ammunition 
Whoa 
I’ve got a kiloton heart 
I’m coming after you 
Whoa 
One thousand kilotons 
Heart 

 

LOVE OF DECAY 
Point of views are crossing lines 
Honesty is such a crime 
Days like this it takes all I’ve got 
Go ahead and take your best shot 
Speculation supremacy 
Feeding off all this energy 

Love of chaos 
Love of decay 
Positive animosity 
You love the drama see it every day 
Love of chaos 
Love of decay 

We’re growing backwards at a rapid pace 
The downward spiral here in cyber space 
Vocal cowards are all around 
A way out is what you found 
The online source 
Anonymity 
Spreading hatred is a guarantee 

Love of chaos 
Love of decay 
Positive animosity 
You love the drama see read every day
Love of chaos 
Love of decay 

More cowards 
More power 
Getting louder 
11th hour 
Setting fire 
Conspire 
#Youstartthefacebookwar 
We’re gonna watch you all fall 

Love of chaos 
Love of decay 
Positive animosity 
You love the drama see it every day 
Love of chaos 

Self destruction everywhere I turn 
The human race is gonna crash and burn 
Empty hearts full of empty souls 
Life on display 
Lack of control 
Everyone hides behind a mask 
The smallest dream might as well be vast 

Love of chaos 
Love of decay 
Positive animosity 
You love the drama see it every day
Love of chaos 
Love of decay 

Love of death 
Love of mutiny 
It's entertainment everywhere you feed 
It's in the paper 
Read it everyday 
Love of chaos 
Love of decay 

 

THROW YOU IN THE VOLCANO 
Mother earth is bleeding 
Blackened fire sky 
Mountain sudden eruption 
Seven miles high 
Vesuvius is bursting 
Nowhere to run away 
Preserve you in an instant 
Just like Pompeii 

Throw you in the volcano 
Throw you in the volcano 
Sacrifice the virgin 
Sacrifice your life 
Throw you in the volcano 
Everybody dies 

Liquid rock like meteors 
Awesome spectacle 
The Krakatau explosion 
Felt around the world 
Magma flow like bloodlines 
About to unleash the payload 
The pressure builds like hatred 
Ready to explode 

Throw you in the volcano 
Throw you in the volcano 
Your death is certain below my pyroclastic flow 
Throw you in the volcano 
Fossilized in stone 

Creator 
Destructor 
My hometown’s new décor 
Earth tremors 
Ejector 
New islands 
New life forms 

All it still in the town today 
Peaceful as can be 
Sleep the silent giant 
Awake so suddenly 
No warning signs tonight or red signals tonight 
Like a zit about to pop 
No flashing lights or last rites 
Before the mountain blows it top 

Throw you in the volcano 
Throw you in the volcano 
Sacrifice the virgin 
Sacrifice your life 
Throw you in the volcano 
Where everybody dies 

Come and meet my volcano 
We’ll drink from the lava flow 
Heed the final warning 
Run, though you may try 
Throw you in the volcano 
Where everybody dies 
Everybody dies 
Do you wanna die? 

 

PANIC FIRE 
Throwing words with sharp edges at me 
I sustain 
I bruise on the inside 
Darting handfuls of hatred at you 
Venting Pain 
You bruise on the outside 

Eye to eye 
Kissing time goodbye 
Eye to eye 
Wounded by the panic fire 

Waiting for love to show us the way 
Impatience 
I tire in my wait 
Wanting someone to doctor the pain 
Internal 
Scars too deep to heal 

Eye to eye 
Living out a lie 
Eye to eye 
Wounded by the panic fire 

Different hearts have different needs 
Hopelessly we walk the fine line 
Everyday the same old thing 
Why can’t we see eye to eye 

Eye to eye 
Kissing time goodbye 
Eye to eye 
Wounded by the panic fire 
Eye to eye 
Living out a lie 
Eye to eye 
Wounded by the panic fire 
Eye to eye 
Keep it all inside 
Eye to eye 
Killing you with panic fire 

 

YOU & ME AGAINST THE WORLD 
Back to back we face each other 
The night storm is howling right outside 
There’s tension in the air tonight 
Wishing these thoughts would just subside 

We can run away from all this decay 
To face the uphill battle all the way 
Uniquely frayed and tarnished battered emeralds 
You and me against the world 

All night long my mind is racing 
But your sleep is resting peacefully 
This pain has always called your name 
Yet my eyes are whispering 

We can run away from all this decay 
To face the uphill battle all the way 
Uniquely frayed and tarnished battered emeralds 
You and me against the world 

We are one more time for the last time 
The chance of survival likely none 
The fight has always overcome us 
Knowing we’re the unlikely ones 

We can run away from all this decay 
To face the uphill battle all the way 
Uniquely frayed and tarnished battered emeralds 
You and me against the world 
We can run away from all this decay 
To face the uphill battle all the way 
Uniquely frayed and tarnished battered emeralds 
You and me against the world 

 

MAGNETS 
Innocent and mortal 
Weak of heart and unlike a stereotype 
Slightly charged and ionized 
Atoms in the blue sky 
A lightning strike 

I can’t escape you 
You can’t escape me 
Like a black hole 
No chance to get away 
No chance to break this threshold 

We are magnets 
We are the opposite attraction 

Positive reaction 
Gaining forward traction 
Getting closer 
We repel when we draw near 
Polar fields and forces 
New exposure 

Innocent immortal and naive beyond compare 
Battered bruised and broken 
Damaged beyond repair 
A love warfare 

We are magnets 
We are stuck together forcefully 
We are magnets 
Change my physical property and magnetize my energy 
My magnet 

We are magnets 
We are the opposite attraction 
We are magnets 
We are stuck together forcefully 
We are magnets 
Change my physical property and supercharge my gravity 
You’re my magnet 

 

NERVOUS ENERGY Part 1 
Hurry up and wait 
I’m outta my head 
I ain’t got all day 
I can’t get comfortable 
Feels like an infinite maze 
I’m stir crazy, jittery, losing my mind 
Pouting and close to the edge 
Tied to the electric chair 
Cooped up in a cage 

I can’t stop my leg 
Nervous energy 
I can’t stop bitting my nails 
Nervous energy 

I can’t sit still or be quiet for too long 
Stressed anxiety 
I need something to do with my eyes and my ears 
To occupy my A.D.D. 

I can’t stop my leg 
Nervous energy 
I can’t stop bitting my nails 
Nervous energy 

Take a number 
Wait your turn 
Just relax 
I’ll get to you soon 
Hang on a minute 
Get some Air 
I see you bouncing out of your chair 
Come back tomorrow 
Stand in line 
This is a fucking waste of my time 
Lose my focus 
Lose my nerve 
I’m the last standing on this Earth 

What’s the delay 
C’mon man 
Can we get the show on the road 
One step forward and two steps back 
I’m gonna explode 
I get rustled up and anxious at the end of the day 
Just thinking bout seeing you 
I get uncomfortable 
When I feel I’ve blown my fuse 

I can’t stop my leg 
Nervous energy 
I can’t stop pacing the floor 
Nervous energy 
One more hour to go 
Nervous energy 

 

NERVOUS ENERGY Part 2 (Instrumental) 

 

TRANSFORMATION  (Instrumental)
 

CHRYSALIS 
Can you survive this feeling 
This trepidation is wielding 
A force of negativity so strong 
You just sit in a corner 
Blood boiling warmer 
What you thought was so right was so wrong 
Time has come for a change 
Your thoughts are withered and strange 
Watch the duckling transform into the swan 

Hey 
Chrysalis is coming 
Chrysalis is numbing 
Spread your wings and fly 
A chrysalis is welcome 
Chrysalis has become 
A metamorphosis to rely on 

Could this be part of truth 
This growth from your youth 
Like a butterfly emerge form the cocoon 

Hey 
Chrysalis is coming 
Chrysalis is numbing 
Spread your wings and fly 
Chrysalis is welcome 
Chrysalis has become 
A metamorphosis to rely on 

Time has come for a change 
Time has come 
Time has come a come a coming 
Time has come for a change 
Time has come for a change my friend  

Chrysalis is coming 
Chrysalis is numbing 
Spread your wings and fly 
Chrysalis is welcome 
Chrysalis has become 
A metamorphosis to rely on 
A chrysalis is forming 
Chrysalis transforming 
So kiss your past goodbye 
Chrysalis is coming 
Chrysalis is numbing 
Spread your wings and fly 
Chrysalis is welcome 
Chrysalis has become 
A metamorphosis to rely on 
Chrysalis conforming  
Chrysalis transforming  
So kiss your past goodbye 

Time has come for a change
Time has come for a change
Time has come for a change my friend 
Transformation
