Track Name: Superhero
I want to be your protector
Defending you from every circumstance
That may do you harm

I want to be like fire
Consuming all the terror in your world
Their plans come unfurled

Watching you from above
Keeping you safe from
All the things that haunt you

I am ever vigilant
Just and true
I'll be a superhero for you

I want to be your signal
Announcing that salvation is at hand
I'm on my way

I want to be none other than
The very man, you never see
But is always by your side

There is no evil that can take you away from me
Track Name: Drone
There's a ghost in the mirror
Oh god - could that be me?
The stench of sweat, the smell of liquor and...
a blankness where a memory ought to be

I feel the weight of their eyes upon me
The expectation growing still
Will I ever live my life my way?
Is this the end I feel?

It's overtaking me
It's now a part of me

Cause my knife is as dull as my fantasies
Cutting off all of my abnormalities
Where do I find the strength to give a shit?
After all you've made me...a god damn drone!

You would have me do as you do
Speak just like you, think just like you
But there's one problem with your plan
I have begun to understand
That you're a kamikaze dive bomb
Hell-bent on destruction
A bold-faced liar
You've mastered obstruction
You shove the biggest piece of bullshit down our throats
And wonder why we refuse to swallow

I refuse to be...a god damn drone!

After all you've failed to make me...a god damn drone!
