Track Name: Doubting You
angry pigeon
you look like you need some food
the avian advantage
doesn't seem to be working out for you
it's not like
you'd bite
the hand that feeds you
the hand that feeds you

I'm down in the pecking order
I'm doubting the pecking order
I'm down in the pecking order
I'm doubting
doubting you

hey
you've gone so gaunt
eyeballs sunk into eyelids
yeah you talked a big talk
before you had a big wing span
sharp pointed teeth

I'm down in the pecking order
I'm doubting the pecking order
I'm down in the pecking order
I'm doubting
doubting you
Track Name: (My Life As A) Low Budget Video
it's been three whole weeks since
I've dried geraniums
tuned through stations hiss
with assistance of my germanium

silicon chips for breakfast
silicate in my lips
crystal lattice laced it all

that's just the curse of my exoskeleton
plankton evolved after all
in toxic shock my stomach knots
I've got this wasted rental body
and life like low budget video

silicon chips for breakfast
silicate in my lips
crystal lattice laced it all

calcified lime rust in my backbone
I gotta go home
excuse to be alone
sit around and wonder what the hell
where's everyone
Track Name: Pain St.
and so it begins
my headache
well it's a drive
I take a turn
take a right on pain street
the light begins to shine red
cut to my fuckin day dream

you can't always get what they wanted
you can't always meet expectations
with exponentially greater than measurable frustration

and if I make it a mile
or so it seems I'll be in another time zone
I'll send you on the back of a post card
a picture I've retained from my dreams

you can't always get what they wanted
you can't always meet expectations
with greater than exponentially measurable frustration
Track Name: Be Myself
I see you sneaking around
silhouetted shadow
how the hell did you go on thinking
that I'd never know

the last cinder to burn out
takes a little bit longer
and if I save anyone
it'll be myself
it'll be myself
it's all about myself
it'll be myself

I see you sneaking around
shadowed silhouette
I've got friends don't you know
I've got no regrets
or excuses

the last cinder to burn out
takes a little bit longer
and if I save anyone
it'll be myself
it'll be myself
it's all about myself
it'll be myself

the last cinder to burn out
takes a little bit longer
and if I save anyone
it'll be myself
Track Name: It Amazes Me
I don't ask all the pertinent questions
I don't ask all the stupid questions I've got
I don't know why I don't know
I don't know why
but still it amazes me
it amazes me
it amazes me
it amazes me

I don't ask all the pertinent questions
I don't ask all the stupid questions I've got
I don't know why I don't know
I don't know why
but still it amazes me
it amazes me

I don't ask all the stupid questions
I'm still
it amazes me

and I don't know how to give a last goodbye

I don't ask all the pertinent questions
I don't ask all the stupid questions I've got
I don't know why I don't know
I don't know why I'm still
it amazes me

and I don't know that we get a last goodbye
