Track Name: Jung Fever
so I had this dream that I pictured you in
you were about twenty years older
and I guess that's what the sea does
to you

there's only one way out
you can't escape even if you try

in my dreams I dream in color
I see a look in your eye
you're the darkest of darkest colors
I never saw it in real life
real time in time
Track Name: Hyper Con Act
growing up I had a beaker full each day
developed polyps and seizures
when I bite on my tongue
I remember each day I have
gotta be happy about air in my lungs

and it's so hard
to get used to this fucking wheel chair

looking through books that my mom brought back from college
I spot a canker lesion
it described me perfectly in the pictures description
pusy, irritated

and it's so hard
to get used to this fucking wheel chair
Track Name: Rock and Soul
set me free and I return out of love
not for me
no savior son
I don't see it
I'll never feel another's touch
I'm a nobody
with nothing for good luck

and it's treated like it's a disease
but they say its a mental affliction
someone will say try some of these
being well is not about your well being

set me free and I will turn out of love
not for me
no savior son
I don't see it
I'll never feel another's touch
I'm a nobody
with nothing for good luck

and he's treated like he's a disease
but they say it's a mental affliction
some will say try some of these
but being well is not about your well being
if you'd help me
you'd get rid of me
Track Name: Art Class
if you want to draw conclusions
take an art class
take sculpture
learn texture
if you want to make assumptions
I'll give a grade in needlepointing me to death
to death

if you want to draw conclusions
take an art class
take mathematics
no matter how problematic the function
if you want to drop assumptions
at least it's something
give a grade in needlepointing me to death
Track Name: Lose Your Head
some of them think the things they say
somehow it's gonna change it all
big mistake
some of them are gonna lose their head

that's what I found
in the run up to an invasion
yellow cake
swallow it down
dial out to your inner spaceman

some of them lead lives astray
somehow they say they'll fall
without ever seeing the outside of these city walls

that's what I found
in the run up to an invasion
yellow cake
swallow it down
dial out to your inner spaceman

some of them hate the things they say
somehow it seems to stay the same
no matter how much they say they feel it has gone too far

that's what I found
in the run up to an invasion
yellow cake
swallow it down
dial out to your inner spaceman
it's all about the dose your taking
you might lose your head my friend
Track Name: Gutterball
maybe I have
maybe I got
maybe I caught what I have
maybe I've found
maybe I've faced
maybe I've thought of my own taste

go streak and find pity now
the index is glued down with our hammer
oh let me overcome my fate
I've got my faith I've got my hate
I've got my fame I've got my hate
I've got my fate

maybe I have
maybe I got
maybe I caught what I have
maybe I've found
maybe I've faced
maybe I failed
can I stay in the can room

and I might overcome my strangeness
just in case I'm walking through
if you see me just call my name girl
but I'm better off in the gutter

I've got my faith I've got my hate
I've got my fame I've got my hate
I've got my fame I've got my hate
I've got my fate
Track Name: Baby Guns
how long before we take war to toddlers
they don't make machine guns that fit my hands
Gerber stands out in the desert sands
war head is on tight tonight

go ahead and draft all your newborn babies
servitude is something Africa knows something about
like the German army of the 1930's
your head is on tight tonight

how long before they take war to toddlers
about as long as it takes to sail up the straight of hormuz
and shut off the flow of oil from Iran

how long before we take war to toddlers
they don't make machine guns that fit my hands
go ahead and draft all your newborn babies
government will abort them anyway
Track Name: Reality Is To Television
he can come back any time he wants
I don't think he will come back now
he can come back any time he wants
how on earth could you think he'd come back now
he can come back any time he wants
why on earth would he want to come back now
he can come back any time he wants
I don't think that he's ever coming back down

cause all he's got in reality is television

he can come back any time he wants
I don't think that he'll ever come back down
he can come back any time he wants
why on earth could you think he'd want to come back
do you wanna come back
and I don't suppose
didn't think so

cause all he's got in reality his television
cause all is god in reality his television
Track Name: Purple Eyeshadow
some of the girls that I know
cover it up with purple eye shadow
when I play dumb I kinda make this face
and if I see her I might make that face

some other girls that I know
laugh it up over things I see as shallow
when I play dumb I kind of make this face
and if I see her I might make that face

a few of the girls that I know
write notes with words that I wrote
and when I play dumb I kind of make this face
and if I see her I might make that face
Track Name: Be Myself
I see you sneaking around
your 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
Track Name: Relics Of A Departed Era
I've watched myself grow
into the last thing I look up to
as I feel myself shrink
all those times come back to me and I think
I wouldn't die for it
I know if I hold onto
I can have this to reach you
this to reach you

if all this as a whole
begins to define us
and when we find our hole
lifeless
think of bygone times
when the easiest times seem to be the hardest

but the one thing you won't hear
from your inner conscience
is that you made it all up this time
as you will the next time
Track Name: Nuclear Vacation
it's 1983
my skin was lost to a bacteria infection
skin eating disease
can't you get excited
can't you feel it out
we don't have to be so sad
under the fallout cloud

it's like a radial nation
it's like a vague creation
it's like you just wanted
everything is one
it's like a vague creation
this nuclear vacation

it's 1984
the only hair grows from the floor perforations
can't you get excited
can't you feel it out
we don't have to be so sad
under the fallout cloud

goodbye radial nation
it's like a vague creation
it's like you just wanted
everything is one
it's like a vague creation
this nuclear vacation
Track Name: So Tired
I'm not a sadist
not a Satanist
I'm not laminated like this poster board

I'm not so tired from moving
I got so tired of moving
I'm so tired of losing

everything's on a loan
I'll take it up on a carry out
carry me up carry me out of this world
on a silver platter

I'm not so tired from moving
I got so tired from moving
I'm so tired of moving
I'm so tired of losing
Track Name: Dr of Technology
rocket shoot me out
I'll work this out on pen and paper
rocket shoot me out
formulaic equations

that's all the proof I need
proof read

rocket shoot me out
I'll work it out on pen and paper
rocket shoot me out
formulaic equations

that's all the proof I need
that's all proof read
Track Name: You Should Be
trains are running
trades her money
would you listen
and could you hear me out

why don't you respond
why don't you respond
if it was only that easy
if it was only me

it means nothing
unless you're much to me
no matter what you see
you should be
how sickening
how sickening it can be
but appearance is not everything to me
Track Name: Telepathic Love
Wipers cover

Send a message via telepathic line
Send it cause I'm feeling so deprived
But I can't get through
What am I gonna do
Could you tell me something without saying a word
Touch me once without being too observed
Could you give me something without giving a blink
Telepathic affair
Telepathic affair
Send a message via telepathic
Send it now
Don't make it tragic
But if I can't get through...
What am I gonna do?
Could you tell me something without saying a word
Touch me once without being too observed
Could you give something without giving a blink
Telepathic affair
Telepathic affair
Track Name: Hi Ho Silver
Charles Thompson cover

in Germany I fight with armor
I save you hi ho silver
in Germany I fight with armor
I save you hi ho silver

time is of decision you see
time is not the reason I'm calling
time is of decision
time is not the reason I'm calling
jump back and I'm taken
your voice

in London town I fight with knives
I save you hi ho silver
in London town I fight with knives
I save you hi ho silver
Track Name: All Is Said
sort through these broken words and thoughts
I've mended up for you with glue
you might be disappointed when all is said
when all is said
when all is said

it's not much
but all I need is you

some wounds and broken hearts
are thought to heal like glue when I'm with you
who knew
you might be disappointed when all is said
when all is said
now all is said

it's not much
but all I need is you
Track Name: Gray Tinted Glasses
I ruined my eyesight with understanding
in ruin my outlook in life with understanding
we talked of deeper meanings
and deep thoughts in my mind
everything got corrupted with understanding

everything's fine
in everyone's world but mine
where everything's gray
through shades of white

it takes a base of all the primary colors
to shade an iris of an eye
but some expressions are best left to empty canvases
like in my mind

where everything's fine
in everyone's world but mine
where everything's gray
through shades of white
Track Name: Games That Cavemen Play
these are games that cavemen play
pick up sticks and crash heads
understand with hand movements
communicate

frustrations got the best of us
and then we're gone to the stone age

the strongest weapon we use
is some good old world exclusion
like from our family gatherings
with bad food

and frustrations got the best of us
and then we've gone to the stone age

as we trade sticks to heads
we've gone stone age
Track Name: Missing Persons Report
I know it's late in the morning
but I can't understand you well
won't you just speak a little longer
I'm not going nowhere

if this is the way that it's gotta be
then this is the way that it's gonna be
if this is the way that it's gotta be
we'll see

now she's hanging up notes on something
I'm missing like a kid milk carton
grabbing fistfuls of hair with follicles
not calling us any longer

if this is the way that it's gotta be
then this is the way that it's gonna be
if this is the way that it's gotta be
Track Name: Playing Dressup
when I dress up like she says
you look nice
you need a hair cut
it looks nice

when I dress up like she says
you look nice
but need a hair cut
it looks nice
Track Name: God Couldn't Be Reached For Comment
he won't have mercy on anyone
his spokesman said on Thursday
he's not taking calls today
his assistant said on Wednesday

I tried to reach you
I tried to call
I tried to go to see you
but you never existed at all

he's not taking any questions
his publicist said on Wednesday
he's hanging upside down like a bat from the ceiling
his mother said on Thursday

I tried to warn you
but you blocked my call
I guess you never existed at all
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
broken mics and broken pipes
it would be great if it wasn't my life
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
excused to be alone
just sit around and wonder what the hell
where's everyone
Track Name: Heavy On The Way Down
slow punch concrete
ends my dreams
try to swing but the force prevents me
peeling it up
I recognize the light switch for what
it's burned into my brain

it's the last thing I forgot
and I've heard enough
if things go bad it's someones turn to lift me up
when I'm running down
heavy I'm running down
I think I'm running down

it's the last thing I forgot
I've heard enough
if things go bad it's someones turn to lift me up
I'm running down
heavy I'm running down
I think I'm running down
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

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 wingspan
sharp pointy 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 doubt
doubting you
doubting you
Track Name: Remind Me Again
way to spit in my eye opening
what a pile of shit I've been
way to spend a goodbye wave
with a sigh

and you might be against
and it might be awhile
and you might be afraid to pray
and you might be again

it's been real eye opening
with a smile and a nod and a wink
way to spend this time away
what a sound both guilt and burden make

and you might be yourself
and it might take awhile
and you might be afraid to pray
and you remind me again
that you might be against
and it might be awhile
and you might be afraid to pray
and you might be again
Track Name: You Always Say That
it's not an easy story to relay to you
if I wanted to
I couldn't find the words if I tried
I wouldn't write the words that I find if they weren't right
I wouldn't even say these things that I'm saying this time
they sound a little similar to the things I said last time

it's not an easy story to relay to you
if I wanted to
I couldn't find the words if I tried
I wouldn't write the words that I find if they weren't right
I wouldn't even say these things that I'm saying this time
they sound a little similar to the things I said last time
Track Name: Chicken Vs The Egg
it all depends on who you ask
it all depends on who asks you first

chicken or the egg
Track Name: Little Blue Book
a little blue book with a lot of white lines
the cold soul black suits
with a noose of neck ties

like a group of ants
with cigarette packs balanced on their backs
or a herd of rats with last months stash
taking what it takes to last when that's all I got

that's all I've got

a little black book with a lot of white lines
a cold soul black suits with a noose of neck ties
like a group of ants with cigarette packs balanced on their backs
or a herd of rats with last months stash
taking what it takes to last

that's all I got
Track Name: Icee Cherry Cola
a red streak goes by
I extend my hand out for a ride
a window rolls down
I see her cry
I'd rather not go into it
I'd rather not go through it

as the door slowly opened towards me
I saw her smile
the way she coughed so smoothly
let's take this drag for awhile
because I really don't eat much
I ain't gotta be home
I'm running from home for awhile

the red streaks left forced smiles
she told me of all her past troubles
some of them included past guys
I said that's alright you don't gotta go into it
she said I think I'm ready to move on
I don't wanna go through it
I said hey drop me off
I don't think I want to go and do it

then she slurped into red streams
from her icee cherry cola
Track Name: Maybe Too Long
maybe is forever wrong
the days coming slowly then gone
I don't need to move on
childhood is lasting I'm wrong

this world that we live in
it only has one road to travel
and I'm not going that way

maybe is forever wrong
the words can't express in a song
I don't need to move on
the signs turned
they're pointing me back home

this world that we live in
it only has one road to travel
and I'm not going that way
after all
Track Name: Hired Bones
am I supposed to feel bad
am I supposed to offer more
you and I have gone from two hands
tired and poor
you made all your money from
you made all your fortunes from your hole
don't forget
you made your fortune mining gold
you made your fortune miner's ghost
you've made your fortune buy in loans
hired bones

am I supposed to feel sad
am I supposed to offer more
Track Name: Past Life
sometimes it feels like the hour will never strike
or the day will never come
or the year will never turn
in my favor

if you're watching and you're waiting
well I'm way been past gone past life
cannot die anymore inside
like a double edged sword or knife
sharply tearing into my mind
and I fell on it for the last time

sometimes it feels like there's no saviors
or they at least never come
intervene in your misdirection
in your favor

if you're watching and you're waiting
well I'm way been past gone past life
cannot die anymore inside
like a double edged sword or knife
sharply tearing into my mind
and I fell on it for the last time
like a double edged sword or knife
sharply tearing into my mind
and I fell on it for the last time
Track Name: Aurora Borrelia
I don't mind if I'm not invited
I wouldn't invite me if I were you
I don't care if you don't like me
i wouldn't like me if I was like you

I'm building
and I'm tired of building with you

a wrecking ball leaves little bitty traces of you
I'll need a refund on that palm reading from June
I'll have my tea leaves crushed up with Tylenol 3's
and crawling on all four's with a drool covered long sleeve

I'm building
and I'm tired of building with you

I'm glad we figured out what brings a tick into the world host
we've gotta find out what binds us together
at most we've gotta bond over how we got awhile to go still
I"m glad we figured out what brings a tick into the world host
we've gotta find out what binds us together
at most we've gotta bond over how we got awhile to go still
Track Name: In Good Health
I told you everything that's on my mind
I told you everything's going just fine
I told you all the things you liked to hear
I told you everything girl

I'm not in a position to be your physician
I'm on a sleeping prescription bait
late night admission
I bet you're wishing you never made that mistake

I told you everything that's on my mind
I told you everything's going just fine
I told you all the things they like to hear
I told you everything I could think of

I'm not in a position to be your physician
I'm on a sleeping prescription bait
late night admission
I bet you're wishing you never made that mistake

six pills to go
don't you feel
don't you feel so much
don't you feel so much better
Track Name: After Dinner Mints
displaced like water around the stream from the rain
amazing thoughts and pictures change but never fade
you were right to cut me off
but were you right to cut me out

it's all the same
the little things that make you think
like an after dinner mint you think
wow really is this worth
all this indigestion
makes for over complication
when we could've simply went for take out

separated from this place inside this earth
are outer space and all the things between
they always seem to hang out in between nice and mean

it's all the same
the little things that make you think
like an after dinner mint you think
wow it really is worth
all this indigestion
makes for over complication
when we could've simply went for take out

kiss you're ass goodbye
it's been priced in
keep your eyes on all the horizon
when the sea is over skies then
where will you be
Track Name: Don't Know Why
I don't know if it's worth it
and I don't know if it's worth it
and I don't know why I don't know
why
Track Name: So Happy
move so fast
so far I can
gonna make someone so happy
so happy

once it's managed to make it's way through

so far I can't decide
if I wasn't ever meant to be
so happy

once it's managed to make it's way through

was it just the other day that you said
or was it even you
I know when
once it's managed to make it's way through
Track Name: Deal Breaker
I don't miss telling you the truth
or my version of it
it's the excuse and I'm all out

if you must know all of it
I don't have an exit plan
or an escape route

I'm on a long term plan
and I can't get out of it
and I'm begging the contract man
let me out of it

these debts paid by the waking hour
thoughts of ours alone to face
as lonely is only able

if you must have all of it
are you so all loving
and benevolent

I'm on a long term plan
and I can't get out of it
and I'm begging the contract man
let me out of it
I'm on a long term plan
and I can't get out of it
and I'm begging the contract man
let me out of it
Track Name: Dirty Needles (bonus)
dirty needles
do you need a light
dirty needles
the last one to die

the best thing I ever
got for Christmas
was a new tattoo on wrist
said I love mom
sad I'm dying
said I'm not worth much
but thanks for trying

dirty needles
do you need a light
dirty needles
the last one to die

best thing I ever
got for Christmas
was a new hollow mistress
straight from Thailand
has no license
???
Track Name: Junkbox (bonus)
rusted shut I'm running on empty
wind me up
I'm rusted shut and empty
Track Name: Hating Me Lately (bonus)
lately I've been tired
tired of feeling numb
I've become incensed with the common senses
can't find a family I'm not weary of
I'm not weary of

you've got all the time
that you'll throw away
I'm not sorry for your loss
put my time in any way
lately I'm not one to care
hate me I'm not one to care
if ugly and lonely, losing hair
I'm sorry that I'm sorry

I cannot bury us
cannot bury our feelings
we've got a whole cemetery
to dig out
to dig out

lately I'm not one to care
hate me I'm not one to care
well lately I'm not one to care
hate me I'm not one to care
I'm not sorry
Track Name: Red Menace (bonus)
there's no test for me between us
you dress yourself insidious
last time it got so serious
I take myself so serious

what they don't know won't hurt them

let's face it there's a lot to cry about
last time it got so serious
I take myself so serious
you dress yourself up so insidious

what they don't know won't hurt them
Track Name: Crowded Places (bonus)
out of all of the people they've gotta pick me
I don't know what it is that they see in me
to be the one they say hey

in a crowd of faces

and I don't know what it is about me that they see
and then they say to me the things
like hi

in a crowd of faces

it must be a combination of things
cause I'm not quite the coolest bean in the string
yeah I'm not Mr. Cool
sorry to disappoint you
Track Name: Heart Lode (bonus)
whisper into my ear
things I'd never think I would hear
and if it turns out I was wrong
you were the one that I meant to hold on to

if I could get over the heart break

as distant as a phone or a phone call on your birthday
limp wristed as a deer
I'm wishing I was more
but I'll never be

if I don't get over the heart break
Track Name: Instrumental Mourning (bonus)
instrumental
Track Name: Don't Be A Stranger (bonus)
I've been searching for a replacement soul
they don't distribute them in vending stalls
and I'm not certain we come with one at all

it's just a saying don't be a stranger
saying things that couldn't seem any stranger
it's a shame to be ashamed in of itself
but I'm no stranger to complaining

in an imperfect world god recalls all his old creations
hazards to the world was presented in unintended ways
so if you must find a reason in everything
there is one to find here
and the reason that is that everything gets thrown away
in a trash can at the end

it's just a saying don't be a stranger
saying things that couldn't seem any stranger
it's a shame to be ashamed in of itself
but yourself
myself
its insane
all these selves
I'm not sure
you want to be
yourself
Track Name: An Only Thought (bonus)
your whole life has been spoiled
you're self taught
if you only thought once in awhile

everything turns gray
your heads cemented
it's so cold
don't need a jacket when you're dead

other people might need a sign
made to show them why
we're made to get to the top of the hole
love and light all the while

everything turns gray
your heads cemented
it's so cold
don't need a jacket when you're dead
Track Name: Crime of Appeal (bonus)
I don't mean to anger you
it just rhymed so well
with what I'm trying to say
I'll be the one to have the book thrown at them
it's such a crime of appeal
in pop sensibilities

write your name on the wall
you've got your own brand name guitar
and a great new video on MTV

there's no such thing as music television
I bring nothing to music like television
I'll be the one to have the nose thumbed at them
is it such a crime to appeal
to your pop sensibilities

write your name on the wall
you've got your own brand name guitar
and a great new video on MTV
write your name on the wall
you've got your own brand name guitar
and a new video on VH1

just another story

can't believe all that crap happened to them

not every story has a sad ending but this one does
Track Name: Hang Nailed (bonus)
so many years have been wasted
esteemed peers hold you in the highest regard
I know you don't deserve it
and you know you don't deserve any less
the secret of the universe
at last we all retest

and it comes down to this
you've got it all
head hanging nailed to the wall
your name forgone in favor
of a fumbled lasting impression

I know you don't deserve it but I want you to regress
take a couple steps back take a couple places back
reinvent the air within a little square electric box
you don't deserve it
don't encourage you don't get very far
we don't get very far without a semitransparent approval

and it comes down to this
you've got it all
head hanging nailed to the wall
a name forgone in favor of
a long lasting impression
Track Name: Sincerely Yours (bonus)
looking so tough like you've gotta be
act so right but you're not mean
got a grievance so we believe
not feeling so equally

equally fucked in mind
your martyr
you'll find my kind all the time

I can see a tongue like a knife before
I'm not made of cutting board
thought it so dumb when you came to me
I realize I'm not a match for me

let go the first time I stretch
maybe I can somehow
they got so far in company
how it got around town
they'll be found
they'll find a way

I deserved you before
I got so tired of you next to me
I was so wrong that's whats gotta be
that can't be why I'd be
equally fucked in my mind
people need more time
given that much I'm fooled
they've never found me
Track Name: Mind Body Divorce (bonus)
it'll never make sense again
we come into this planet with no recourse
we come and leave this planet with no remorse
got to make sense of the mind body divorce
it'll never make sense again
Track Name: Two Dimensional Dress (bonus)
I don't find myself to be a romantic
without an understanding of your feelings
it seems like I'm never gonna be
it seems like I'm never gonna be all
be all that I want
and I'll be the one that falls

as Olive Oil sits in a tar pit
she can't move and her skin absorbs it
Pauline's limited higher growth and movement
by a cage she's placed inside of
in spite of her torn outdated two dimensional dress
with one digital breast
with one digital breast

as Olive Oil sits in a tar pit
she can't move because her skin absorbed it
Pauline's limited higher growth and movement
by a cage she's placed inside of
Track Name: They Want Me Dead (bonus)
as legends go and sayings say
the itch is never gone away
until you stop the scratchin'
lest we stop forgetting

subliminal mind reach out an ear
there's things to like in life I hear
this limit of mine reach out in fear
there's things to life outside of here

a wise man said to his dumb friends
as they looked him in the face
get me out of here
they want me dead

subliminal mind reach out an ear
there's things to like in life I hear
this limit of mine reach out in fear
there's things to life outside of here

I'm blowing up because you don't care
too bored and old and nowhere near
the brightest light just burned out
and now I fade
Track Name: Old Chicago (bonus)
and now we're strained
and got our rate
and don't even own our only home
just know that if your payments late
there's a better deal down the road

and we don't need a weather man
to know which way the wind blows
and we don't want a congressman
who runs like old Chicago
we don't need a middle man
to will which way the wind blows
until it whips up with a force that blows away Chicago

and it's not strange to have gone this way
but it pains me to say
just know that if your payments late
there's a better deal down the road

and we don't need a weather man
to know which way the wind blows
and we don't want a congressman
who runs like old Chicago
we don't need a middle man
to will which way the wind blows
until it whips up with a force that blows away Chicago

come one come all
step up right here
you too qualify for a readjustment
of your spine in alignment with the ground
from a lamp post

we don't need a weather man
to know which way the wind blows
and we don't need a banker man
to tell us what the balance shows
we don't need a middle man
to will which way the wind blows
until it whips up with a force that blows away Chicago
Track Name: Fairytale In The Supermarket (bonus)
Raincoats cover

it makes no difference
night or day
no one teaches you
how to live
cups of tea are a clock
a clock a clock a clock
cups of tea are a clock
a clock a clock a clock
the times I forgot but never forgot
I don't know the books that you read
but you don't say that
love never externalizes
you're rereading a book
to feel reassured
by the life of your favorite hero

but don't worry
honey don't worry
this is just a fairytale
happening in the supermarket

the roots of your thoughts
they're essentially polaroidal
when you look at my picture
don't say it's your mirror
don't say we're both paranoid
tear me
make me glad
don't ask me anything
I'm no secret agent
I've got no colors to give to you

but don't worry
honey don't worry
this is just a fairytale
happening in the supermarket
Track Name: Risin (bonus)
instrumental Innersky cover
Track Name: From Hateful Visions (bonus)
Judas Iscariot cover

i see the darkest place, through the dark
i saw the flame, flames of the fire
and they are surreal

gaze down upon the creation
take my existence away
from the hills and valleys
from the fields
from the land that god fell down
then it all fell down
then in my scream
then the last fell down
then the feeble screams

and time returns again
and my place to dwell
lord of infinite power
line my ancient walls
from my ancient woe
from my hatred seed

picture the call of evil
and my heart is cold

and my soul insists
to call upon the lord
i drown my ancient foes
and all my soul this is
the forgiveness of sin
my dark dungeons of hell
know that i'm sick
and what my death will plan

a dark dungeoun of hell
Track Name: Natural Man (bonus)
Daisy Chainsaw cover

be like I have said
I said it clearly
they mess it up instead
I mean it really

I am a god
no one understands
I'm the one, I'm the one
the natural man

fools and idiots
just when I want
friends when I see fit
just when I want

I am a god
no one understands
I'm the one, I'm the one
the natural man

I'm perfect that's for sure
I stand
in a class all by myself
I am

I am a god
no one understands
I'm the one, I'm the one
the natural man
