Track Name: Down and Doubt
And though I try,
I never seem to get this shit quite right
Or make it through the day without a fight
What I want to know
is that I'm not alone
in not thinking everything's alright

So confess:

You doubt your faith, you doubt your god
You doubt your friends, you doubt your job
You doubt your love, you doubt yourself
And you doubt everybody else
You doubt the whole world around you
and your reason to be
Yeah, when the lights are out,
you're just like me

Confess, there is no happiness
Come clean, unsure of everything
Admit, you're just as lost as me
Confess
Track Name: Dig Deep (The Tithe that Binds)
Dripped dry from the moment you were cut from the gut
Shaken-down by the pious perpetrators of glut
We sympathize that you’ve fallen on hard times, but dig deep

Gonna send around the basket now
Gotta fill the trough to feed the sow
Come and feel his light, if your wallet allows, and dig deep

Want you to give until it fucking hurts
Then give some more

Pick-pocketed while prostrating
Swine swindling and sedating
Extorters masquerading, dig deep

The tithe that binds belies a crooked smile
Hope and fear stack a wicked pile
You want to go with god? Go the extra mile, and dig deep

Want you to give until it fucking hurts
Then give some more

Love can’t be procured with the swipe of a card
Truth is outside this church, but the church is barred

I will not buy into consequence
To stave off hell for deliverance
Track Name: Unremarkably Mortal
This marching to the end, it started with a crawl
How much we pretend, but how little do we know
Unremarkably mortal. Irrevocably ever-ending
You know these lives were never fucking ours at all
Track Name: Prevail
Against the weight of living, prevail
Despite the pain of dying, prevail
In the face of crushing heartache, prevail
With just one breath remaining, prevail

And though at heart we know it’s just a passing spell
We’re already here, so we may as well

Endure the pain of aging, prevail
And this unrelenting sorrow, prevail
Even though it’s all so pointless, prevail
Without even knowing why, prevail

And though at heart we know it’s just a passing spell
We’re already here, so we may as well

Why go on? Why?
Why go on? Why not?
