Track Name: Foolish
This glow I found upon my desk
Cuts me in a miraculous jest
Blood is dripping from my chest
Fend for myself out of this nest

The world drops off for a feed of the crop
Your belly won’t ache until you stop
Bend the planet down, pick it over again
No one has to know until you’re friends

I guess it’s as important you find out for yourself
What it means to give health to your soul, know it well
Your body corrupts your mind
One is just a product and the other’s undefined

Take your body back to the graveyard
But let it go into the natural Earth
You can’t stop when you’ve nothing to say about it
Living life blind in your house of mirth

The world drops off for a feed of the crop
Your belly won’t ache until you stop
Bend the planet down, pick it over again
No one has to know until you’re friends
Track Name: Tarzan
Dart the skies and move right past
Nothing matters, it won’t last
Starry up your spiral path
Start me on more tidal wrath

Bark more orders to collide
Mark your doors as suicide

Behind the mountain is a mouth that feeds
You’re catching up behind your vacant seeds
Your torture’s plenty and it’s all you need
You’re going twenty, but you’re clocked for speed

Bark more orders to collide
Mark your doors as suicide

Give you something to hallucinate
Make you fade out and don’t hesitate

Bark more orders to collide
Mark your doors as suicide
Track Name: The Clicker
Broken to open my vial of elegant remains
Tired and woken my illegitimate restraint
Wired to broke again, I’m willingness relaxed
Admired but shook and why will there be relapse

The world is caught by your confidence
But it only loses when you say it is

Open your lampshade and try yourself to get retired
Broken but happy, it’s wise more help is hired
Token of half-baked, all your ideas inspired
Move off the gram, babe, mall tour years expired

Your patience is a virtue
That gravity really suits you
My cavity in pursuit knew
Take time for you to reboot through

I’ve got this temporary ache
And it won’t go away until I forsake it
My body is a temple for life
But it’s falling apart from the dark I stay sick
Track Name: Step
Take just a little bit of what you make
Jump yourself inside of it and have a taste
Relax yourself to earn a bit of open space
Control yourself enough so you don’t have to face

The war coming through in attitude
You’ve only got yourself to lose
The followers are gone insane from watching your slavery
You’re tying them up and you’re calling it bravery

Water for the witch that drowns in the sound
Have yourself a pat on the back for getting around
The innocent come back through in a rouse of smoke
Suffocates your veins as you choke

The war coming through in attitude
You’ve only got yourself to lose
The followers are gone insane from watching your slavery
You’re filling their cup and you’re calling it bravery

The only thing you’ve got to show is a room full of things you know
Familiarity to the touch, they don’t like you very much
And you’re starting to feel it down in your soul
You’re losing control of what you beg for
Trying to get a sense of what you paid for
Pitiful, the sense of nothingness
When you empty your pockets, it seems you empty your sense
Track Name: Human Verse
Your skin is the glue that keeps it all together
Your blood is the center of the universe
Your eyes are the gaze that capture every moment
Your mouth is the speaker of human verse

As we watch the stars fall into shape
Can we question the nature of our ways
All we know, the forest’s been blacked out
Wash your mouth with soap and cast your doubts

You’ve got the spark that lights the dark
You’ve built yourself upon the ark
You’re vacant too, I can see it in you
You hold me close just as the sinew

As we watch the stars fall into shape
Can we question the nature of our ways
All we know, the forest’s been blacked out
Wash your mouth with soap and cast your doubts
Track Name: The Wraith or Not
Catch your wraith and collapse on the faith of what you call your own
You’re living down in the deep of it
I told you to make a decision that would call upon your best ideals
But you threw it out and left yourself unspent

You can’t get yourself alone
You won’t answer your own call
The sacrifice you made is going to waste
It’s got you by the tail that you chase

Look back in denial that things have got so cold
In your own hands that you take for granted
The lack of a trial for the actions that were bold and worn
In circumstance that nature planted and you took for wild

You can’t get yourself alone
You won’t answer your own call
The sacrifice you made is going to waste
It’s got you by the tail that you chase

Catch this wish and suffocate it
You can’t have your dish and love to hate it
Grow your spotlight, let it fade in
Cut the curtains that you bathe in

You can’t get yourself alone
You won’t answer your own call
The sacrifice you made is going to waste
It’s got you by the tail that you chase
Track Name: Beat
Blinded by the fright
These hallucinations have taken up my sight
And thrown me into the deep

What a dreadful night
My subconscious has in store for me
Am I alone or am I dreaming

What’s this mean
Shouldn’t I be lean
The walls are so clean
Are they speaking or laughing

I can’t retake this test of my sanity
I clearly have failed
I’m going to rake the sand in spiral patterns that do me away
My ship has sailed

Call my name whenever you need out of this Hell-scape I brought us into
I won’t be there
But there’s a chance someone will hear your cries to the void
And let you loose

What’s this mean
Shouldn’t I be lean
The walls are so clean
Are they speaking or laughing
Track Name: Paradise
I’ve got myself on a special lift to paradise
It doesn’t knock twice
Pulling my strings is the great beyond

I know my purpose, I can’t give it out
I’m at the surface when I’m having doubts
My intuition is to figure it out
I know I’m nothing so relay it down

I’m trying to find you in the darkness
I’m trying to seek out the ether
My mind isn’t ready for the damage
I don’t care what the plan is

I know my purpose, I can’t give it out
I’m at the surface when I’m having doubts
My intuition is to figure it out
I know I’m nothing so relay it down

This treatment burrows inside of my skull
Like a hole from a drill bit, out of control
Give myself to this shit, I’m on a roll
Test myself without it to see if I’m in control

I know my purpose, I can’t give it out
I’m at the surface when I’m having doubts
My intuition is to figure it out
I know I’m nothing so relay it down
Track Name: Slumber
I know you want to stop me from reaching for the past
The now is all we really have
It feels better when I stop and think, why do I have to think this way

It’s better than feeling like shit for something I can’t control the circumstances of
This life from below comes from above

There’s nothing but laughter in the sky tonight
I think I’m losing my mind
Just on time
