Track Name: Look
- LOOK -

Look at all the days in my life.
Don't look at all the things that aren't right.
Look at all the ways we spend our time.
Don't look at all the things that are mine.
You be yours and I'll be mine.
I'll be hurt and you'll be fine.
I'll be dead and you'll get by.
I'll get yours and you'll get mine.
Look at all the things out of site.
Keep grabbing for all the things you can't find.
You be yours and I'll be mine.
Walk the ground and laugh at the sky.
You got the pieces but they don't fit.
You see temptation and I'm not it.
Now's what you got before you.
So simple it almost bores you.
I don't wanna go, I want out of here.
I don't want lust, I wanna be clear.
I don't wanna live, then I'd have to face fear.
I don't want truth, way too sincere.
Walk the ground and laugh at the sky.
Track Name: Bang
- BANG -

Oh no, I'm doomed, no room for me on this Earth.
Pill box, dirty socks, no one told me what my life was worth.
Porno mags, dirty rags, Mother told me that I was unclean.
Father loved to hip me, told me nothing's ever as good as it seems.
I'd never given thought to what I never lost.
I paid for what was black and white at any cost.
I cry inside, my hands are tied, my lips are sewn.
I'm gonna make it better 'cause I'm so alone.
Eyes wide, terrified, gonna have you begging for your life.
Bet you never knew someone you never knew was playing God tonight.
I feel the .45, it makes me feel alive.
Everyone is stupid and so full of lies.
Dirty little secrets running up your dirty thighs.
My action is subtraction making the equation right.
The game of life is complicated, I know that I'll never win.
Oh my God,forgive me Father give me Mother all my sins.
"Hey, Ho, We won't go!"
Well, you don't know what I don't know.
I'm taking someone out 'cause I'm not going out alone.
BANG, BANG, BANG
...feels so good.
Track Name: Rebirth
- REBIRTH -

I feel your eyes and I see your soul.
I've been inspired, but I need control.
Time and space do not exist,
so scream into the unknown and wait for an answer.
I've seen your face and I sense your presence.
And I felt alone, yet I was everywhere at once.
If I'm drenched in bliss, then I am dried by torment
and a single kiss could be a thousand tongues.
If I'm shown the way, will I see the answer
or will darkness light my way.
All that I have ever known is shrouded by a cloud of unimportance.
Time and space do not exist, so scream into the unknown and wait for an answer.
Track Name: Dried Up
- DRIED UP -

You give out your hope and then you act like you care.
Now I'm all dried up. Yeah, I'm all dried up.
And I don't know why anyone would want to be like you are.
And I don't know how anyone could want to be where you are.
You've never known me but you've seen me before.
I am the person that you love to abhor.
You're taking everything and then you want more.
Without your petty shit your life is a bore.
Dried up... yeah
You are always so right because that's what you're told.
You're so far away, you're so far away.
You're so gone, long gone.
And I don't know how anyone could want to be where you are.
And I don't know why anyone would want to be like you are.
You've never known me but you've seen me before.
I am the person that you love to abhor.
Without your petty shit your life is a bore.
You're taking everything and then you want more.
Dried up... yeah
You're always talking to the ground,
So loud, you never hear a sound.
Sometimes it's lost it's meaning.
I can't remember feeling.
I can't remember... dried up... yeah.
Track Name: Rain
- RAIN -

It's gonna rain in here.
Things never change in here.
So many things to fear, is what I hear.
Why isn't it clear?
I'm in a daydream.
Don't feel the need to be too clear.
Yesterday will never tell,
what tomorrow can't hear.
Crash landing,
I hope the coast is clear.
The ground is just jealous of the sky,
so much of it to see.
What can I say my dear?
How should I pray my dear?
I'll be everything you want me to be,
so you can be free.
Track Name: Cut
- CUT -

I can sit and watch it right before my eyes.
I'd rather just ignore it than just act surprised.
I can barely stand, I can hardly fall.
Everything is so slow...everything is so small.
Little sections make it to me,
but I think I see everything.
In a second, in a second, in a second will the world end?
I can't deny it that I'm in another place.
What's all around me, all I see is just the face.
Values of all the things, to me it's just a taste.
Take a bite, I want to taste it.
I really want to chew it up, but I can't swallow.
I've been to places where you hide.
I'm wondering who you are.
I wanna cut you up and look inside.
I think about it, think about it, never seems to come true.
I can't stop the bleeding, guess the cut is misunderstood. Misunderstood.
I've been to places where you hide.
I'm wondering who you are.
I wanna cut you up and look inside.
I think about it, think about it, never seems to come true.
I can't feed desire, guess the point is misunderstood.
I think about it, think about it, never turns out too good.
I don't get the living part, guess the world is misunderstood.
I think about it, think about it, always do what I should.
I never play with fire, guess the heat is misunderstood.
I think about it, think about it, never turns out too good.
I'm in love with fighting, I guess the pain is misunderstood.
I think about it, think about it, never seems to come true.
I can't stop the bleeding, I guess the cut is misunderstood.
Track Name: 60
- 60 -

Gonna be gotta see it's for real make believe
Don't even wonder why
Gonna walk gonna crawl gonna stand gonna fall
I hope I'm not too high
Gonna laugh gonna cry gonna live gonna die
Gonna touch the fuckin sky
If I stand will I fall will I laugh with you all?
And never know quite why
You may be talking to yourself, and never hear a word you said
You are
Is it good to attack if it's white if it's black
If it happens all the time?
Can you see what is free, is it you is it me
Is it too hard to decide?
If I lean on a dream will I fall in between
the ground and the sky?
Can you hear what is said fall behind up ahead
And then you can rewind
Have you ever lost your use in faith
Do ya think the world is in your hand?
You may be talking all your life, and never hear a word you said
You are
Track Name: Love to Hate
- LOVE TO HATE -

You tell me that the world is round
and all the bullshit that you found.
You're so above it all.
You tell me about a better place.
Well, get the hell out of my face.
You're never satisfied.
You told me that your aura's real.
There's angels floating 'round your bed, you said.
It's in your head.
Everyone is out to get you,
everyone is out to get you a life.
You love to hate
You read between the lines, you're right
You love to hate, you love to hate.
You tell me your life is destiny,
well maybe there's a better place for me too.
You need to get a life.
You told me that your father's Satan.
Did you know your mother loved to hate him?
She loved to hate.
And it would not be complete if the world was at your feet
Because you love to hate.
You know you tied me to a bed.
You know you told me I was dead.
You turned into a wrecking ball.
Everything you touch will fall.
You're right, you need to get a life
You're so damn right, you love to hate.
You're making it so hard, you're breaking it apart.
Track Name: Dreamtime
- DREAMTIME -

Look see, could it be - missed point A, blew off point B.
Knew what I was looking for - I know what I am looking for.
I know too much but still want more.
I care too much to just ignore.
No sign, straight line - takes good money to buy some time.
Everyday is the line of fire - live the truth and you're a liar.
Maybe I should get tired - it's so much easier to just get tired.
So deep, take a peek - feels so safe when I'm asleep.
Dream time, unwind, feeling is what words can't find.
Forward in reverse - if you're dead you can't get hurt.
Don't act too concerned - you can't know what you can't learn.
You say you start, you say you stop.
The ocean's taste is in a drop.
I can't forgive what I've forgot.
Can't see the signs that say to stop.
I'm almost over dream time.
Maybe in the meantime, I can stay awake.
I never learn unless I know, try so hard but can't let go.
Track Name: 6699
- 6699 -

Push it to the side you can never hide
if you touch it light in the right place
You can make the whole world come
Tumbling down, tumbling down
You can pick up all the pieces later
When you go to sleep
Can you mean all the things that you're saying
If you take it back what do you keep?

Try to pick the puzzle
Work it all out
Where did you begin
Can you figure out
You're feeling kind of thirsty
You gotta have some water
Crazy like a red rose
You'll keep a little longer
You have a voice but you don't know how to sing
You're talking through me looking at me talking to me
You have a choice; it's the truth; it's the same thing, it's the same thing...
It's not a feeling like you had when you began
It's like the feeling like the thought you had before.
It passes through you like a gamma ray
But you'll feel the cancer someday... someday
So tell me if you like it
Or you will never know
Forget about the garden
'Cause life will always grow
Track Name: Too Deep Blue
- TOO DEEP BLUE -

I feel lonely
There is only one way for me
Something right here
All that I fear is what I need
And if you go away it's just an inch
And if you hurt me it is but a pinch
Why do we have to lie?
Why do we have to try so hard
We become something else
Not ourselves
And what you give me only goes so far
You make me live but it's so hard
You make me bleed it's just a drop
I make you start and you can't stop
Why do we have to lie?
Why do we have to try so hard
We become something else
Not ourselves
Track Name: Moot
- MOOT -

I wanna say it wanna say it
But the point seems moot
Well it's kinda what I wanted will it ever do?
I wanna go in wanna go in
But I lost the key
I thought I had it where I wanted
But I lost my need
I wanna know what it's like to be
I can't float when it gets too deep
I feel full when it's time to need
I....I
I wanna play it wanna play it
But it seems to cute
It's not even what I wanted will I ever choose?
I wanna know what it's like to be
I can't float when it gets too deep
I feel full when it's time to need
I can't cut when it's time to bleed
Where did I go did I ever go?
Did I even know?
So simple, so filled-in
How did I feel did I feel?
Do I really need?
So simple, and colorful
How did I feel did I feel
Do I really need?
So simple, and colorful
Track Name: The Blame
- THE BLAME -

I'm pushing farther going harder living better than you could hope to
No remorse cause I'm not sorry life's a party you can't get to
Stain the glass so you can't see through
I like the way that you can't see through
You can't see me I can't see you
You can't see me I can't see you
Sinking farther moving faster getting deeper than I can get through
No remorse but I am sorry life's a party I can't get to
The glass is stained and I can't see through
I like the way that I can't see through.
Life's a movie I'm the victim, everybody wants to get sOme.
It doesn't have a lot of meaning behind it
It doesn't have a lot of feeling behind it
It doesn't have a lot of truth behind it
It doesn't have a lot of meaning behind it
I hate the way our vision is strained
We can all be blamed
Can you be restrained?
Can you take the blame?
Track Name: Go
- GO -

Do you think that circumstances
Creat the doubt you swallow?
You only want the facts, you only need the truth
Or maybe something made up
Look around
There's a whole world that we fail to see
When we don't look inside ourselves
Tear it open, look inside
Tear it open, see what you hide
We've been looking for too long for this thing we call "god"
Nobody knows what we know, but we know and we love
What we know and we love when we go, when we go...
I've been holding out so long it's getting hard to swallow
I've come close to running into what I tried to follow
Carry on, we're holding on, holding on we carry on
On and on and on and on and on and on and on and on
Go
They've been looking over us
To see what comforts us
They're keeping you high
They're keeping you high
Tell them and they'll never forget
Remember you know what you know
And it goes deeper than they can go
Deeper than they can go
Did you know you could go?
Go
