Track Name: All Ways
Will I need my car for the apocalypse?
Metal machine take me away...

Somebody help me come to my senses
call 9-1-1 there's a fire in my eye
I'd buy the uniform of consensus
but god don't seem to make it in my size

It's kind of funny too
cause he knows how to do it
If what he says is true
there's no time to prove it
Track Name: Brother Skies
Burning from chemicals
God's gifts, sky chemicals

Grey rain, you're not the same
but you could be the thing
we want to need

Melting from chemicals
God gifts, sky chemicals
Track Name: Houston 4/20
Shattered, split, stoned, and stepped on so
we're waiting too long
shattered, split, stoned, and stepped on so

Until the morning
you will feel that wait
weigh on you
don't get mad
don't get sad
it passes like the fad
that broke you
Track Name: I'm An Eye
I am an I
I am an eye
I am an I
I am an eye

See you!

We are an I
We are an eye
We are an I
We are an eye
Track Name: Inch Back
Get going, now we get to have fun
Drinkin' unwashed blood in the bright sun
We need a reason? Now we got a new one.

Now we got another one.
And now we got another one.
And now we got another one.
Track Name: Influential Times
Living in influential times
I'm going out-out-out in a war with my dumb mind
Living in influential times
Turning into that trash of the sentimental kind

Living in influential times
Bricks in a pyramid of the Charles Manson kind
Living in influential times
Watching the chosen ones get taken by the sky
Track Name: Jerks
Miss you, whoever you are
Track Name: Whoever You Are
In someone's mind I'm demon born
Guess they don't like me anymore
In someone's mind I'm Satan's seed
Just cause they don't agree with me
Track Name: Clive Barker Book
It was the medication,
Not the man.
Track Name: Zappa Hicks
Somewhere, Outside
Some guy just died
I think it's possible

I'm in the zone
Here in the zone
Down in the dead zone

We're in the zone
Here in the zone
Down in the dead

Somewhere, sometime
Some dude might die
I think it's possible
We make it possible
Track Name: Toad, King of Business
Last call for the party man
if he can't do it, then someone can
Last call for the party man
If he can't do it, then everyone can
Last call for the party man
If he can't do it then I guess he can't

Hats off hats off

Last call for the party man
If he can't do it, then anyone can
Last call for the party man
If he can't do it, then everyone can
Track Name: Hotel Jaded
No
Track Name: Rush 2 Say Yes 2 King Crimson
Led by the light
Of the favorite screen
Now I'm not surprised
But I'm dumb and mean

Back inside and back for more
Breaking the waves I should ignore
Cause when I sleep at night
I dream of computers

Spinning around inside my head
Daymares abound where ipod's dead
Cause when I sleep at night
I dream of computers

All day all night long
Same old late-nite song
How'd this tv get back on?

I can't wait 'til I don't know anymore
I can't wait 'til I don't know anything
I can't wait 'til I don't know anymore
I can't wait 'til I don't know anything
oh no, too late

I can't wait 'til I'm a cyborg
I can't wait 'til I'm a cyborg
I can't wait 'til I'm a cyborg
I can't wait 'til I'm a cyborg
oh no, too late
Track Name: Competing With Opeth, Losing
Think like a pig
Act like a pig

Why can't I seem to align
these stupid hands with my mind
Try as might all the time
Victory cannot seem mine

What is sickness?
What is?

Don't try to say I do nothing
I live in my house.
Track Name: Cave Of Prog
Peace to the solution
The mountain from the molehill
Where violence is an answer

Now I've been bored before I was bored again.
I was bored before I was bored.

When I look at my shoes now
They look like a pair of frowns
And I won't turn them upside down
Cause I'd fall on the ground

In the cave of progression
I can hide from aggression
I can wait here 'til they're all gone
'til I'm the one without a rock to sleep on

In the cave of progression
We can hide from regression
We can stay here 'til you're all gone
'til we're the ones without the shoes on
Track Name: Folking Up and Finding Out
I don't know what I'm not
So I don't complain
I just stay the same
I just say the same things

Out in the empty spots
I'm filling the space
But I just stay the same
I just do the same things
Everything's the same thing anyway

Open eyes
Entertained
I don't mind
It's all the same

I don't know what I'm not
So I don't complain
I just stay the same
I just stay the same things
Track Name: Swamp Dogs
You can't deny the smile
will blow them all away now
Just like the cheeseburger
It makes me want to pay now

I don't believe in ghosts
But I believe in winners
And that's what makes the lottery
so great for us beginners
Track Name: Mammalien
take my mind, I don't mind
but it's a boring example
I don't care, I just wear
another type of face
When I get bored with my own,
One more mask

All the time I try to make myself
fuck up, find out, and hit the shelf,
sit in the shadows of the other self
where I won't know until I'm someone else
I won't know until I'm someone else
Track Name: Dull Customer
I didn't want to buy you
but you're too good of a purchase
and now I know it was the right move
and I might have met a great salesman

I didn't want to buy you
but you're too good of a character
and now I know we made the right moves
We're on the fast track to being great leech men

Watch these trees
fight for their lives with the wind
While heat breeds
and the smoke rolls right in

New god burns our prayers for rain

I didn't want to buy you
but you're too good of a purchase
and now I know it was the right move
I'm on the fast track to being dull
Track Name: Pushing The Fun
Pushing the fun
Pushing the fun
'til the party explodes
and the people run

Pushing the fun
pushing the fun
'til the babies get drunk
and their parents say they're done
cause they had too much fun

My son my son what have ye done
you start to sound like a loaded gun
when you sound like you do now
like you never have no fun
Track Name: Revenge of the Synth
Waiting all night and day
for something to go the right way
for someone to say

Sorry for getting too good
at doing dumb things

Like I do...
Track Name: The Saddest
I'm just a normal guy, you know
don't try to ask me where I go
It's somewhere you won't understand
Unless, like me, you're just a man

Don't try to ask me where I go
the sad man.... wait.
I guess that I could go outside
But I'd rather sit and wait to die

What did you want
to find out, anyway...

I often dream the perfect place
where astronauts are lost in space
like private eyes without a case
and beauty queens without a face

What did you want
to find out, anyway...
Track Name: (P)out of the Past
Out in the open sun
that's how the west was won
but I doubt that the hunger was fun
and I'd probably been shot by a gun

Yeah, I know you've got one now
already said my wow
'Wow, the next thing you need is a spouse'
'or a yard to protect from a house'

I hope we don't mind
living in the future

Don't look into our beards
self-medication's weird
when it's done 'til it comes out your ears
where it's better when nothing is clear

these motor skills aren't mine
they're taking too much time
and the feeling is hard to define
I can't tell if it's real or sublime

I hope we don't mind
living in the future

We should've figured it out by now
Instead, we're still stuck in the towns
Track Name: We'll Be New Ghosts
It's been a month
since my last cigarette
We'll, more like three weeks
so not quite a month yet

In a few years
in a short time
we'll be new ghosts
of the old kind

It's throwing me off
there's too many changes
and just when I thought
I wouldn't have to rearrange shit..
Track Name: This Land
It gets old
It gets old
It gets so old
sold out

This land of the lost
is pissing me off
cause its words are too harsh
for our perfect ears
It's like an anti-mirrorworld
where we're scared of our dreams
but we follow our fears
its weird
Track Name: Didn't Know...
I didn't listen
I didn't know
I wouldn't know by now

I didn't know I wouldn't know by now
I didn't know I wouldn't know now
Track Name: Dario Argento 1940
I don't wanna talk no more
I just wanna make it home alive
I don't wanna talk no more
I just wanna make it home tonight
Track Name: Scott Walker 1943
You found a secret
when you took it slow
when you laid down low
to come into our own

Between the answers
that we'll never know
we melt into the flow
of the nature show

yes, the nature show
Track Name: Jon Anderson 1944
What's a mystic night without mystic days?
What keeps my feet on the ground and what pays?
Track Name: Rainer Fassbinder 1945
Its too easy
to hurt you
that's why I do
that's why I do

Never mind what I did
Never!
Track Name: Iggy Pop 1946
The words will get out
when the nights get back in
new scratches in your arm
old demons in the wind

Rollin' on wheels of fire
Track Name: John Carpenter 1948
Its not the other side
if its the place to be
unreal and all anti
versions of you and me

and if they are so wrong
why are we being them?
Track Name: Jackson Browne 1948
I wish some times
and some more times
wouldn't just race by
out of my mind
when they're on their own
they never want

to come back home
they move on
confidence was in their bones

You know you're right
what do I know..
Track Name: Holy Livin', 2011
You live in a hole by yourself
so no one can tell
you live in a big dumb...

You live in a hole by yourself
so no one can tell
what they meant to say
you've been there,
back behind the better ones
the ones that don't make mistakes
like you and I...
Track Name: Psychicz: 2012
obey you know they live

Its not what we do, I know this
I don't know why I said yes
Track Name: Sonic Landfill
this is just the end
of one pretense
it was just pretend anyway
I don't care what they say
I don't pay no
I don't pay my mind
Track Name: Space Name
I'm in the right mind
here, I can do no wrong

Boring entertainment,
I know it so well
Track Name: Drier Days
he says those birds are too big
but they were here before him
he sees the watch in the sky
but doesn't notice at all

he says those birds are too big
but they were here before him
he chugs his gallon of wine
to slap himself in the face

as they relax and relate
his tribe who howls at the moon
familiars riding the wind
they'll have to blow away soon

Lookout, I've got new rules in my hand
drier days, a beaten path for the dead
one more time, and I'm right back here again
acting on some shit some stupid guy said

he says those birds are too smart
must use that whole tiny brain
they hang up high in the clouds
when they get sick of the ground
Track Name: Vampire Weekends
no more words, laughter
repeated on silent weekends
to understand the impulse

in the sky
there are are signs
I'm not by myself
but it freaks me out

there is no perfect kind of angel
unlightened and outshined,
running on second-hand daylight

in the sky
there are signs
we aren't by ourselves
and it freaks me out
Track Name: Sunk Like A Stone
down down down

sunk like a stone, we're so proud
you let yourself get drowned out
through the highs and lows
I hope it went where it goes

this is the same thing
I take my time with chaos
this is the same song

Let's take our time with chaos
Track Name: Creatures Kiss
When I sit there
at my desk
I feel it bubble
in my breast

in this trash heap
in this mind
where I wake up
one more time
one more time
before it gets away

we tread below
the dotted line
we don't request
we don't find

nobody wants
to be the myth
when it happens
one more time
one more time
before it gets away

maybe I need to be more primal
maybe I need to get confused with an animal
these are some thoughts she had sometimes
these are some thoughts from her mind

maybe I need to get more primal
maybe I need to get confused with the animals
these are some thoughts we had sometimes
these our some thoughts from our minds
these our some thoughts from our minds
these our some thoughts from our minds
Track Name: Festen
open up
the new skin's gotten old enough
it just gets in the way
all night
all day

hurry up
the construct's gotten old enough
the whole thing wants to sway
all night
all day

Hurry up.
The new skin,
it just gets in the way..
Track Name: Tribute to the Logo Man
Letting go
its allright
its the soul
after all

Letting go
its allright
its your soul
after all
Track Name: Stuckee
I've been looking
at the tv screen
I listen to the tv screams

stuck in a sad loop
Track Name: I Like A Daydream
I like to stare
out at nowhere
I like a daydream

I try to talk
I try to walk
it's not the same thing
Track Name: Trash City Blues
New mission
new point of view
even the ones I don't want to do

Stack that change
ride that bus
we ain't got the blues
the blues got us

I'm not a superhero
but I'll be your loser, baby

Dark crooked smile
here we are
you don't know I saw you
in your car

I might miss it
all that stuff
I smoke to get numb
but it's not enough
was it a problem when we were younger?

I'm not a superhero
but I'll be your loser, baby
Track Name: How Do You Know Who You Are(Did You Ask Yourself Or Somebody Else About It)?
Turn off the lights
we wanna see what's in the dark
to see if we're right

Same as before
nothing but through an open door
to another side again

wayward days
wayward nights
wayward bound 4
wayward life

Somebody wants to be alone
somebody wants to be alone
somebody wants to be alone
somebody wants to be alone!

How do you know who you are
did you ask yourself or somebody else about it?

Feeling it out
two clicks behind the fear and doubt
onto the next in line

Out of my mind sometimes
I don't even know what I like anymore!
and it's not like
there's a shortage of things to choose from
