The Madness 04:00
Gotta find a way Gotta figure out How can I keep from sinking Getting off track Off track to the bottom Where is my reckoning? Can I slip up? Falling out from under My thoughts collapsing Make a comeback Coming up for air Take it all and disappear Hit the reset Set it off Set the blockade on fire Tear it all down Clear the way out When the moon turns and the stars fall Watch the shadows grow tall in the night In the darkness move unnoticed Creep upon the edge of sight Escaping from the madness Escaping from the madness I'm waiting to start sinking I'm treading Descending Escaping from the madness Escaping from the madness Escaping from the madness The power Devours The minds of the cowards We’ve come upon the hour I've waited In silence I'm craving Defiance The panic Off-axis Distraction Is my entrance Gotta find a way Gotta figure out How can I keep from sinking Getting off track Off track to the bottom Where is my reckoning? Can I slip up? Falling out from under My thoughts collapsing Make a comeback Coming up for air Take it all and disappear Hit the reset Set it off Set the blockade on fire Tear it all down Clear the way out

She came from the sky So elegant and divine Bringing new days To lay claim and start her reign For every sin you’ve made And ever debt unpaid She’ll find you, scarred and petrified And for all the games you’ve played And those you’ve laid to waste She’ll find you and set you free You had a chance to plea How merciful and fair is she Down on your hands and knees Begging this mother of man and beast For every sin you’ve made And ever debt unpaid She’ll find you, scarred and petrified And for all the games you’ve played And those you’ve laid to waste She’ll find you and set you free Scarred and petrified

I thought I was brave Sought to heal the wounds I made with those beyond the grave No one ever warned me they were Waiting Baiting Whispers in my ear, make a connection Infection I let them in I let them through Now I’m dragging all my ghouls around Terror from beyond I can’t get out Have I gone insane? Those I’ve wronged have thrown me in a supernatural game All for an impossible justice Trusted I chose selfish gain now I am wanted Haunted Upside-down and on their cross Now I’m dragging all my ghouls around Shaken to acknowledge them Ashamed to ignore Now I’m dragging all my ghouls around Terror from beyond I can’t get out Now I’m dragging all my ghouls around I’m shaken to acknowledge them and ashamed to ignore

Reincarnivore I wanna taste it because it bleeds I know I crave it inside of me I want it naked before I feed Right on the bone yeah I'll lick it clean Reincarnivore I need to have it The power of the animal is what I've become The predator to all living things I am to you Reincarnivore Mutating from the inside out with primal speed and sight Helpless to the way it used to be Satiate the ever-growing appetite The power is in the bones within the beast Reincarnivore

Cannibals 05:28
Wish me well I'm on my way to seek a savage colony Some would call them man-eaters The cannibals could be our saviors The Cannibals are hungry We will feed them with our foes Clones are so abundant Bodies we cannot dispose The Cannibals are hungry Let them feast on man-made bones The odds are set against us We cannot afford to lose We sail, we swim Remote island We come in peace They stare, they scream We fear not We march in ropes We’ve lost all hope Bound to a spit The flames are lit We fear not Drawn up to roast so they can eat us alive This is my chance to negotiate How would you like an endless supply of food for life? Take this technology and become the richest men alive Cannibals are hungry We will end the famine Deal is signed in our blood It cannot be broken Cannibals are hungry We will end the famine

Get it out of my system Rotten with disease Another bad decision Suffering is symptom Call it tragedy Get it out of my system Get it out of my system I'm begging on my knees Let me out of this prison Gonna make it my mission Need a guarantee Get it out of my system How did I get here? How did I get here? I never ask why So clever hiding So clever hiding deep inside Its eyes open Its eyes are burning me alive Shot inject my skin Cure me from within Temporary high The threat it never dies Got it out of my system I can finally breathe But I never listen I know I have a condition Rinse and repeat Jeopardize the system

Odd Punk 05:25 video
A new life is what I seek Please help me find it I thought I understood But I’m too damaged I’m climbing up, you’re pushing down I’m getting nowhere I’d rather die than live inside This backwards fantasy, alone I left home for a while Sought truth and promise Got lost along the way But I’m still fighting Why am I used to the abuse? I’m nearly broken I’d rather die than live inside This backwards fantasy, alone I spin round in circles Faster, never stopping Harder to catch my breath Signs point right, I turn left Take it all in stride One step at a time I’m climbing up, you’re pushing down I’m getting nowhere I’d rather die than live inside This backwards fantasy Save me

(Mutants I) Woke up on the floor again Can’t remember anything Eyes are glowing and my hands are growing and I think I’ve found the reason why Toxic waste under my bed Radiation overhead Incubating in a modern cage as I become an experiment How did this become of me? How was I chosen to be? Miracle in a prison cell In the mirror I can clearly see The recovery The discovery I didn’t know my strength Inhumanity To try and cage a beast And face the bars yourself I can’t take it anymore No I cannot take it anymore Tackle down The doors will crumble The recovery The discovery I barely know my strength Inhumanity When you cage a beast You'll face the bars yourself

Paragon 02:33
(Mutants II) Foreseen A day that never should come to pass Could he? Could he destroy us limb by limb? Show me Convince me there’s a better way Judge not My plan will surely save our lives For years I’ve imagined a perfect world like this Without The threat of mutant men so strong Let go Just let go Trust me You’ll see I’ll give the entire world to you

Mutiny 04:04
(Mutants IV) We are kin and blood By the laws of man Stand and recognize We belong here March on with me my friends Under night’s sky Congregate and mutate Take back our home

about

The Madness is the second full length album by Austin, TX rock trio Transit Method.

We feel that we’ve hit our stride with The Madness. The music is tighter, the songwriting is more ambitious, and the lyrics feature characters shaped by our own personal experiences. We spent months collaborating and recording demos. We've poured our souls into this music and hope that it brings you as much joy as it brings us.
