Track Name: From This Day Forward
The Absolute - From This Day Forward

Listen up
Cause were making noise
Break the locks
And share the spoils

Came from nothing
Realized

See into the future dear
I was right
Never mind what you may hear
I was right
Been gone for so damn long I fear
I was right

Came from something
Realized
From this day forward
It’s our time.

Oooooooooo…
Track Name: Smile
The Absolute - Smile

Five years older
Force fed fairy tales
Of a soldier
Forced to bury it
Learn from one
Another…
Stone cold sober
Seeking out a friend
Mindless murder
As a parting gift
I want to be the first to
Congratulate you

While I was sleeping
Life was teaching me to grow
How could I know
What I had in store well…

I’m alive, but I
I’d rather die
Than to see him make you smile
If I could I would set fire
Watch as it caves
Smile as it caves

Make your mind up
Masked by mass appeal
Let’s remember
Just the shitty years
Learn to love
Another
Facing forward
Set your mind at ease
Take some time and
Have some fun at least
I want to be the first to
Congratulate you

While I was sleeping
Life was teaching me to grow
How could I know
What I had in store well…

I’m alive, but I
I’d rather die
Than to see him make you smile
If I could I would set fire
Let it burn let it expire
Watch as it caves
Smile as it caves

I’m alive, but I
I’d rather die
Than to see him make you smile
If I could I would set fire
Watch as it caves
And to see him make you smile
If I could I would set fire
Let it burn let it expire
Watch as it caves
And if I can't make you smile
Hold your face unto the fire
Let you burn let you expire
Watch as you cave
Smile as you cave….
Track Name: Seek and You'll Find
The Absolute - Seek and You'll Find

Choose your speed
Slow down
Patiently
Change your tastes
Flip side
Face to face
Careless fall
To your knees
Scrape
Your feet

One of us
Had to make a fuss

I don’t mind
I don’t mind
How I live
Or where I die
Whether now or whether then
Seek and you’ll find
The time well spent

See my money’s on the rising sun
Know I don’t belong to this
I won’t hide
And I won’t run

One of us
Had to make a fuss

all I see
is use for these
dichotomies

I don’t mind
I don’t mind
How I live
Or where I die
Whether now or whether then
Seek and you’ll find
The time well spent

I don’t mind
I don’t mind
How I live
Or where I die
Whether now or whether then
Seek and you’ll find
The time well spent

Seek and you’ll find
Seek and you'll find
Track Name: Where The Mild Things Are
The Absolute - Where The Mild Things Are

Here and now
All I've been allowed
Is this working
Phased out
Why go searching
Come round
When faith
Meets fate
All has been replaced
By a certain distaste
For a certain mistake

So fine tune your systems
Kiss your kids
God you'll miss them
Left them all for a mission
To see how far
One can truly fall
And you're all alone

Out of words
No clever verbs or wordplay
Strike a nerve
With fancy chords and sustain

So fine tune your systems
Kiss your kids
God you'll miss them
Left it all for a mission
To see how far
One can truly fall
And you're all alone

Now it’s time
My minds gone blind
To boast would be a waste
Here,
I've come to gain
The heavens praise
I'm all in

Who did I become
What did I become
Where did I go wrong, in the end I'll repent
When did I go wrong
Why did why did I become...
Track Name: Like I Do
The Absolute - Like I Do

Where have all the good ones gone to
How should we respond to something new
What’s to do when it’s gone
Guess we lose
Waste
Waste another
We feel nothing
Cause they do what they did
Now they’re done

Stay, plant your seeds
It’s the future we chose to lead
The time is now
Storm the town
Make ’em notice

Say
Say we’re stupid
Were we stupid
When we turned on the lights in our heads
Where have all the good ones gone to
how should we respond to something new
What’s to do when they’re gone
We’ll improve

Stay, plant your seeds
It’s the future we chose to lead
The time is now
Storm the town
Make ’em notice

Stay plant your seeds
It’s the future we chose to lead
The time is now
Storm the town
Make ’em notice
Track Name: No Wonder
The Absolute - No Wonder

Highly volatile and restless
Unrelenting unexcused
I don’t need
I don’t need
I don’t want to hear about them
If the shoes make the man
Could they walk a mile in mine
No one can say for certain
No one should even try
My mind reminds me
No wonder no denial

All along the challenge wasn’t
To confront but to retreat
and on and on it goes
Forever if I ever take the high road
On and on it goes forever just the same
No one can say for certain
No one should even try
My mind reminds me
No wonder no denial

And so for many years
I shed so many tears
How has it come to this
It hurts the most to be dismissed

No one can say for certain
No one should even try
My mind reminds me
No wonder no denial
Track Name: Heavy
The Absolute - Heavy

So give me
Good reason
Not to do the things that I find pleasing
Wait for it
There's more here
Painted eyes that lie to you for sport
Walk by
And it seems like
It seems it doesn't matter
So onward
And upward
Call their bluff and snuff at what they offered
But just one
Condition
Spare a life and contradict your vision
And it seems like
It seems like it’s the first time

Seldom ever told (but)
Everybody knows
Self-loathing
On my best of days

Cease fire
Retire
Never trust the likes of such a liar
Call session
Confess sin
Find a waste of space and time dimension
And it hurts like
It hurts like it's the first time

Seldom ever told (but)
Everybody knows
Self-loathing
On my best of days
Track Name: So We March
The Absolute - So We March

Favor
Fades fast
Waiting on a savior
To last
So we march with purpose
Proud and paranoid
What may come we can’t avoid
Laid to rest amongst my peers

It’s easier to
Replace you
Cut till you're numb
One more try

Savor
The past
Presently I
Speak with all the skeletons
Interested in where I’ve been
Laid to rest amongst my peers

It’s easier to
Replace you
Cut till you're numb
One more try

and you'll never know
and you'll never know
and you'll never know
and you'll never know
and you'll never know
and you'll never know
and you'll never know
and you'll never know
and you'll never know
and you'll never know
and you'll never know
and you'll never know
Track Name: Burbank
The Absolute - So We March

Favor
Fades fast
Waiting on a savior
To last
So we march with purpose
Proud and paranoid
What may come we can’t avoid
Laid to rest amongst my peers

It’s easier to
Replace you
Cut till you're numb
One more try

Savor
The past
Presently I
Speak with all the skeletons
Interested in where I’ve been
Laid to rest amongst my peers

It’s easier to
Replace you
Cut till you're numb
One more try

and you'll never know
and you'll never know
and you'll never know
and you'll never know
and you'll never know
and you'll never know
and you'll never know
and you'll never know
and you'll never know
and you'll never know
and you'll never know
and you'll never know
Track Name: Bite Your Tongue
The Absolute - Bite Your Tongue

You say it’s pre-ordained
we're destined to stay the same
I could never think such clever things to say.
I'm re-missed at what's been done and who's to blame
are you with me here today
vain attempts will consummate

Bite your tongue the cavalry's away
Bite your tongue the verdict stays the same
Bite your tongue there's nothing left to say

So I'll re-arrange
I'm destined to change the game
If not now than when will I ever
Rise again
If not you than whom will I ever
Call a friend

Bite your tongue the cavalry's away
Bite your tongue the verdict stays the same
Bite your tongue there's nothing left to see here

As for now I curse the clouds
Forlorn, torn, ripped at the seams no more
Silly words are for the birds
I'm told
But I don't know
Well I don't know

Bite your tongue the cavalry's away
Bite your tongue the verdict stays the same
Bite your tongue the cavalry's away
Bite your tongue the verdict stays the same
Track Name: Calm Down
The Absolute - Calm Down

Everybody wants
What they just don’t have
And everybody else
Grows greener grass
It’s just a phase
We raced
You placed out
Of a lesser class
After all the moment has passed
Fly your flag half mast
Girl you're so clever
Could we ever
Tar and feather

Well just …
Calm down
Calm down
Calm down
Now…

And the truth
Shackles both your feet
Swallow this
Let it set you free
It’s just a phase
We raced
You placed out
Of a lesser class
After all the moment has passed
Fly our flags half mast
Girl we’re so clever
Could we ever
Tar and feather
Make our mistakes in life
After all we’re human beings

Well just calm down
Calm down
Calm down
Now …

Calm down
Calm down
Calm down
Calm down
Track Name: Grow
The Absolute - Grow

Come with me
Find peace
And then the crowd will follow
Walk away
From where you
Once became your hollow
Self
Fond feelings we walk away with
For
Why should
I bother even try
Since we'll die

And I’m just a ghost
And how you’ll know
Is where I’ve been
The flowers grow
And so for now
This might get loud
And passing by
It saved my life
So we ascend and take flight
This time I’ll get it right

Let them be
They’ll place back
All the broken pieces
In my life
Changed minds
Outsourced form none to plenty
Of
Fond feelings we walk away with
For what
Why should I bother even
Try
Since I'll die

And I’m just a ghost
And how you’ll know
Is where I’ve been
The flowers grow
And so for now
This might get loud
And passing by
It saved my life

So we ascend and take flight
This time I’ll get it right
So I ascend and take flight
This time I’ll get it right

This time I’ll get it right
This time I'll get it right
This time I'll get it right
This time I'll get it right
This time I'll get it right
This time I'll get it right
This time I'll get it right
This time I'll get it right
