Track Name: No, I Didn't
Did I ask for your opinion?
(No, I didn't, no I, no I, no I didn't!)
Did I ask for your advice?
(No, I didn't, no I, no I, no I didn't!)

I never said I needed you
I never said it
(No, I didn't!)
Track Name: Destructive Design
Dancing in circles
And playing with fire
While warmly embracing
Such deadly desire
Pushing the limits
And crossing the line
As you stand face to face
With destructive design

Anxiously silent
And seemingly ill
The last price to pay
For your final thrill
It's sad and it's selfish
That you will not try
To fend off bad habits
That eat you alive

Destructive design
Track Name: Disoriented
Where am I?
Who have I become?
This place isn't familiar,
Where did I end up?
Why is it so quiet?
Why do I feel so bad?
I can't seem to remember,
Where I left off or began

I don't know how to express
Affection for anyone
Why do I get so angry?
Why is it hard to have fun?
Why do I feel so alone?
Should I be this confused?
I feel like I just woke up
Severely abused

Do I have a purpose?
A reason I didn't die?
Can I trust anybody?
'Cause people often lie
My thoughts are so vivid
My emotions; copious
It's hard to pick up the pieces
I'm disoriented
Track Name: Delusions
Born, we all start innocent
Taught fear of God and government
We seem to have such ample hope
For a world where it's so hard to cope
Too young to understand the lies
That are so clearly advertised
Too trusting as children can be
We follow suit and think we're free

Discipline dispersed
Religions reserved
By delusions of grandeur

Grown, we've learned to praise our gods
Obey dehumanizing laws
Anxiety makes us depressed
Fear makes us sick, we're such a mess
The ties we wear are strangleholds
The clocks we punch keep us controlled
For a life we live so dreadfully
We sell our souls and think we're free

Travesty traversed
Reasoning reversed
By delusions of grandeur

Follow suit, obey the law
Sell your soul, praise your god!

Sacrament suffered
Listlessness lustred
By delusions of grandeur
