Track Name: The Pissing. The Passing.
cant slow down time, cant make it stop.
its eat sleep drink fuck, eat sleep drink fuck rot rot rot.
not finding self, or breaking down, just mixing up the medicine and weeding out.

and were not the same as we were back then
is there a means to reach the end?

theres turning back and wishing on
a second chance not gonna come
or pushing on and stepping back
and taking hold until it cracks

there is a reason why everyone dies,
its not tragic endings. it makes us more alive

the pissing, the passing, the bullshitting of time.
an angry, disgruntled wasting of a life.
gets taken and twisted into what we find
the truth thats been hiding all the way behind
Track Name: Strange Days Have Found Us
cant be surrounded by empty people that bring you down
sounds blind to say i want to be brought to higher ground.
my hands are sticking to my insides while i rip them out.
made a pact to run forever without looking down.

how has it come to this, im getting out.
in a bad way, from a bad place
i've got a bad taste on the roof of my mouth

for years weve lived in broken spaces,
not taking time to check our heads and take our chances.
not living right.
we've spent our time making mountains out of our lives
im leaving footsteps and taking flight.

everybody clap your hands say no.
Track Name: Men Without Suits
what do you want me to say?
living like this drains the life from me.
its not okay, if its just dollars and cents
ill go hemingway on my face.
where do you want us to go?
its like everywhere we turn is another door thats closed
but what do you expect when the whole world has gone and got itself broke.

what is god?
and what the fuck happened to the native americans?
where'd they go?
you'll probably find them in a trailer park somewhere.
what is god?
everybody's talking, nobody's listening.
where'd they go?

and ill sit in the same room, with the same fucking people.
and talk about whats dragging us down.
too disillusioned by the idea that this holes
just too fucking big to climb on out
i swear we could live forever.

ill find a way to make you listen
if youll find a way to shut my mouth
were too afraid to make a difference
wait till you find out

is this what you asked for? is this what you want?
im here finding answers, wait till you find out
Track Name: I Don't Think She Likes The Special Sauce, Rick
a man, his road, its never empty he can never go home
our time, delayed, im falling down, its getting late

were outside with all the people
theyre all dying to get down
so well start our own religion
where we crucify the crowd

ideas, decay, buried under where snakes lay
my face, the same
as a child without a name (forgotten)

show me that you wanna live
tell me that it isnt right
while theyre counting up the pieces
and theyre leaving us behind

its like were in a fucking epic
with all my friends i thought had left
holding on for the climax
i push eject, whats coming next

were so happy to be alive
Track Name: Serious Delirium
were stuck in a place
so we burn it down
i eat it up
never spit it out
my insides burn
i shake when i talk
i cant explain
how much i love this
my hands are free
my minds a mix
of rotten filth
and never ending hope
i hate the way
that the world smells
i cant describe
how much i love this

you're my favorite
you're the best

what happens now
are you even here

can you see the fever in my eyes
im reaching down but im lost in time
waiting for this, all my life

never gonna stop
i will never get enough
taking what is left
forgetting all of it

never gonna stop
ill never gett enough
are you gonna be here
when this all is done
Track Name: It Brought Us Together
like a record player, undone by a wrecking ball
were chained together
this gravity wont stop the fall
stretch us thin, weve lost our grip
break us down, detach us from our skin
we wont stop

shred these words into your palm
and throw them away now
you can start to live

theres a ringing in my ears
thats an ocean in my head
playing off time
a mile ahead
just breaking open
lost in an empty void
just breaking open
so we can see inside

like the record player, undone by a wrecking ball
it shattered sound, it brought us together
