Track Name: Sympathy for the Madman
I’ve got two tongues in my mouth;
one is forked so the other is twisted.
There’s a stranger hiding in this house.
A little suffering will get me addicted.

We were separated at birth, ten years apart.
I found home in a whirlwind of a heart.
I found solace in a soul that swallows cold
and spits out sarcasm that turns into gold.

When the levee breaks I’ll go back again,
teetering on the edge of what it seems like the end.
Don’t pull me back from the edge, my friend.
Let me inhale the darkness and we’ll transcend.

We’ll transcend.

We were separated at birth, ten years apart.
I found home in a whirlwind of a heart.
I found solace in a soul that swallows the moon
and fed me distrust inside my cocoon.

It’s one thing to be inspired and another to imitate.
I can worry all I like but either way it’s too late.

In one ear and out my lips, my words are tainted.
You’ve saved and sullied me with pictures that you’ve painted.
Where do I draw the line
between you and I?

I’ve got two tongues in my mouth;
one is forked so the other is twisted.
There’s a stranger hiding in this house.
A little suffering will get me addicted.
Track Name: The Gameshow
You put your thinking cap on.
Time to avoid the klaxon, baby.
The risks are crazy.
Some say the rules are not fair.
The reward is not there. Princess,
you’re so ambitious

Welcome to the gameshow.
Welcome to the show (the clock is ticking).
Welcome to the gameshow.
Welcome to the show (the ship is sinking).

I’ll put you in the spotlight,
worship your word and your mind. Gorgeous,
my word you’re gorgeous.
The pain ain’t worth the prize.
This show is fixed, it’s all lies, baby doll.
But please don’t tell a soul.

Seems like it’s gone a bit wrong.
I guess it’s time to move on, baby.
Who’s next to play me?

Welcome to the gameshow.
Welcome to the show (the clock is ticking).
Welcome to the gameshow.
Welcome to the show (the ship is sinking).

The clock is ticking.
The ship is sinking.
No justifying all the damage that I’m doing.
So I’ll dress it up nice
with metaphor and black tie.
No justifying the damage that I’m doing.

Welcome to the gameshow.
Welcome to the show (the clock is ticking).
Welcome to the gameshow.
Welcome to the show (the ship is sinking).
