1. Don't Get Caught
so please don’t close these doors / i’m not dead set on dying / these wounds and sores / have let the poison in / but these veins won’t shelter it / no these veins won’t shelter it / no these veins won’t shelter it / and if all you’d known was war / then you’ll just keep on fighting / the pain before / you let it all cave in / no this brain will never quit / no this brain will never quit / no this brain will never quit / so if you’re set / and that’s the plan / then you made your choice / and you’ll fall by your own hand / so then all in all / what if all’s the same / then you took your stance / and you’ll fall in the same place / in the same place / obeying all their laws / ignoring what they’re hiding / behind their walls / kid they said you’re born in sin / so you kneel and pray to it / so you kneel and pray to it / so you kneel and pray to it / and if all you feel is loss / then you’ll just keep on finding / despite the cost / you’ll be stealing just to win / yeah they’re stealing just to win / you’ll be stealing just to win / you’ll be stealing just to win / so if you’re set / and that’s the plan / then you made your choice / and you’ll fall by your own hand / well then all in all / what if all’s the same / then you took your stance / and you’ll fall in the same place / in the same place / so please don’t close these doors / i’m not dead set on dying / these wounds and sores / have let the poison in / but these veins won’t shelter it / no these veins won’t shelter it / no these veins won’t shelter it / no these veins won’t shelter it / no these veins won’t shelter it / no these veins won’t shelter it / no these veins won’t shelter it / no these veins won’t shelter it / no these veins won’t shelter it

2. Burn For This
you say the back door’s always open / leads to the place you’re always going / no you never get there / what you claim’s so far away / happiness in another place / time to bring it home / time to bring it home / work on through the dead of night / i’ll break my back ‘til i get this right / i fell in love at first sight / it burned out fast ’cuz it burns too bright / yes i know i’ll burn for this / yes i know that i’ll... / yes i know i’ll burn for this / yes i know that i’ll... / yes i know i’ll burn for this / time to bring it home / time to bring it home / kid i know what you’d say / breaks my heart when you talk that way / things unknown and things we’d state / when we both miscalculate / kid i know what you’d do / you’re beaten down you’re beaten black and blue / things unknown and things we’d state / when we both miscalculate / yes i know i’ll burn for this / yes i know that i’ll... / yes, i know i’ll burn for this / yes i know that i’ll... / yes i know i’ll burn for this / yes i know that I’ll... / yes i know i’ll burn for this / time to bring it home / time to bring it home / you say the back door’s always open / leads to the place you’re always going / no you never get there / what you claim’s so far away / happiness in another place / time to bring it home

3. Indecision
you say no one should die alone / but if i do would i place / my faith in the hands of your gods / and would i test out the odds of a savior / who died for my sins / or would i pass away / silently / would i take it all in / unravel engrossed in this mystery / savor these last breaths to breathe / yeah you think that you know / and that’s the reason you don’t / because a hand on the wheel feels like one on your throat / these were boundaries / are you willing to cross / am i gonna reconnect with all my loved ones that are dead / or come to realize this was all in my head / was it all just emotion / and does it burn out today / and was the fact that i lived without laws or a script / just the strength of my will or the most mortal of sins / and did i break down the walls / or shut all these doors / in the last of my moments would i admit to my flaws / these were boundaries / are you willing to cross / yeah you think that you know / and that’s the reason you don’t / because a hand on the wheel feels like one on your throat / yeah you think that you know and that’s the reason you don’t / because a hand on the wheel feels like one on your throat / these were boundaries / are you ready to cross / this is my last / will and testament / whether human or heaven-sent

(The following is a Chinese translation/interpretation of "Indecision" by Luyao Zhang.)

踟蹰

你说无人应该孤独死去
但如果这样
我将把我的信仰放在我主手心
我将见证
为我罪而死的救世主是否真实存在
我是否会安静的死去
我是否会吸收全部
在这未知中专注地消散
品尝最后呼吸

啊,你以为你明白
其实这才是无知的根源
命运之手好像卡在你咽喉
你是否愿意
跨越这些屏障

我是否能与死去的爱人重聚
抑或这都是我的执念
还是都是感情做崇
而今日将全部熄灭
是否我从未按照教条而活
只靠意志的力量
也许这正是不可饶恕的罪
我是否打破那些条框
还是反而将自己封闭束缚
在生命尽头是否坦诚接受缺陷
你是否愿意
跨越这屏障

啊,你认为你了解
其实这才是无知的根源
命运之手好像卡在你咽喉
你是否愿意
跨越这些屏障
这是我最后的想法
