Track Name: Dead Fish
Hey dead fish flush me down oh so clean
Hey dead fish what have you been hearing
You dead fish come on give me something
You remind me of people I've seen before
Hello my yellow dead fish you got gold and diamond rings
Oh dead fish show me all of your things
Dead fish rest forever on my leg
Do you understand what I'm saying?
Dead skin, dead art, dead things fall apart
Dead skin, dead art, dead things fall apart
Hey dead fish you move with the stream
Hey dead fish you are living my dream
You dead fish drown in the water
Hello dead fish give me words of wisdom to get me through all the things you never got to do
Dead skin, dead art, dead things fall apart
Dead skin, dead art, dead things fall apart
Hey dead fish try to tell a lie
Dead fish did you know it rains in july
You dead fish are more than an ally
Hey dead fish wasnt california nicer than this before
Dead skin, dead art, dead things fall apart
Dead skin, dead art, dead things fall apart
Dead skin, dead art, dead things fall apart
Dead skin, dead art, dead things fall apart
Track Name: Sonder
Hey kid I watched you grow up and boy you've never changed
And what you only seem to care is what stars did with their name
You read books and watched T.V. and got good grades despite
My mind spun in all directions figuring out whats right
And with the only light I had you closed the door I choose
And with the only weapon I had you dulled the blade I use
But with both hands and my body's traction I think it will be alright
Rats are the first to leave the ship when its sinking and its not sight
I thought too much about it and regret the choices I made
Now I'm always cautious will my actions repeat
The souls in my two year old shoes were running out of spring
Every single step I make it does the same damn thing
And with the only light I had you closed the door I choose
And with the only weapon I had you dulled the blade I use
But with both hands and my body's traction I think it will be alright
Rats are the first to leave the ship when its sinking and its not sight
Track Name: War Hog
Manipulation took it for free
No more communication get rid of me
You say there's nothing after life but black and blue
Its not decisions that you make but the ones you choose
Clean out the breaks and have your own confirmation
Its not okay that you're relying on desecration
You're running to an unknown destination
And you're being force fed medication
Power blows out the barrel of a gun
I guess we'll have another re-run
You're reloading odds zero to one
Why do you think riots are so fun
Clean out the breaks and have your own confirmation
Its not okay that you're relying on desecration
You're running to an unknown destination
And you're being force fed medication
Track Name: Infared
What did tomorrow need
Don’t greed the things unneeded
I don’t believe in love you dont believe in god
What’s there to believe in there’s just not enough
They never liked my anyway
It dosen’t hurt me to leave them at bay
Would you still drink poison in a bottle
Labled chardonnay
I don’t even like the taste
I hit my head i’m seeing red
I dont get it why you would do this
Can you see the infared or is it all in my
Fractured head
We start with a feeling
and everything follows after that
Will you still follow me or pass me by
With the luck of a black cat
I never liked me anyway
It dosen’t hurt me to leave them at bay
Would you still drink poison in a bottle
Labled chardonnay
I don’t even like the taste
I hit my head i’m seeing red
I dont get it why you would do this
Can you see the infared or is it all in my
Fractured head
I hit my head i’m seeing red
I don’t get it why you would do this
Can you see the infared oris it all in my
Fractured head
They never liked my anyway
It dosen’t hurt me to leave them at bay
Would you still drink poison in a bottle
Labled chardonnay
I don't even like the taste
Track Name: Allegory of Humanity
I don't wanna say you were misread
Lemme say it was nothing that you said
Your face is more pale than embarrassment red
Come on, come on, come on and get up
I wore vuarnets upside down
In hopes of not having to turn around
I like where I'm standing on uncommon ground
No I won't turn it, I won't turn it down
You got guts and the right attitude
Drop it all what do you gotta lose
I'm writing my own pony blues
I really don't want to, I really don't want to be in this crowd
Track Name: Electric To Inept
Its inept
you see
I mean
fixation
Want it all
to take
the weakest
of medicine
Track Name: Mr. Stintman
He sat down by the station a quarter past nine fully aware that the train will not come by
His face glowed under dim street lights as he looked all around he was in a rush and kept looking for an unacquainted sound
For waiting in bitter agony the reward was short but for a person in need
Mr. Stintman approaching his cold shaking hand to bring him somewhere warm again
Mr. Stintman and his new friend were standing in the dark because what Mr. Stintman was about to do would surely drive a spark
Mr. Stintman you cant deal with the crime
You cant move back or think to rewind
You're alright now feed him the chine
Just ask Mr. Stintman and he will gave you some time
He held a lighter and a cigarette and lit between his lips
as he murmured out "whats this all about?"
At this point the man began to shout
"Mr. Stintman you stole my life at bereft now I'm tired and have so little time left."
The poor man began to cry and plead "Mr. Stintman give me what I need."
Mr. Stintman laughed and agreed to the request to put this mad mans mind at rest
He grabbed his shoulder and said amen with the illusion that the boy is what the man was again
Mr. Stintman you cant deal with the crime
You cant move back or think to rewind
You're alright now feed him the chine
Just ask Mr. Stintman and he will gave you some time
That's what the man wanted but couldn't wear on his sleeve
Cause what the Stintman gave could never be received
Time is a tickin' and flying away, not even the father could fix or delay
Trick the mad mans mind into thinking he had more time
knocking back and feeling so sublime
He said thank you joyfully and strolled on away
and the Stintman laughed cause he conned the mans grave
Watch the man swagger away unaware Mr. Stintman sat at the station
dressed in despair thinking about who he will deceive next
Just to give euphoric conjures to people truly hexed
Mr. Stintman you cant deal with the crime
You cant move back or think to rewind
You're alright now feed him the chine
Just ask Mr. Stintman and he will gave you some time
Track Name: Crush
The ground isn't level but we can still stand I'm out here empty handed
Spill it spit it dye it red all I need now is a needle and a thread
The books are stacked ceiling high your last name is written on every spine
If you spit on a pencil it won't erase ink
Madness isn't foolish I don't care what you think
I need distraction you need to focus should I deliver you a more direct approach
Is this enough is this a joke should I continue or make my way home
Same pastor that had my parents married, baptized me and had my grandparents buried
In a jejune manor praying over the dead as if they haven't heard the best of it yet
Quiet close to almost silent of course its grown to violence
Yeah I refuse to answer run a little faster eat away my cancer don't waste away in your own denial going down a spiral a weapon is a T.V. and question why you cannot sleep
Salvation hatred infestation talk to anti-machine cause you drank all the seven seas
Track Name: Rocket
I told myself to go
Lie about everything you know
I only drive crashed cars
The opiate to disaster and dying stars
Whats else did we not leave behind
We need room for what we might find
Faster than the speed of light
Count down commission hold on tight
Railways bus stations airport taxi stands
1 2 3 throw your morals in a garbage can
With money in one hand
And scissors in the other
I'll probably end up back here tomorrow
Go find me your self
I'm my own coup de grace
I will be wishing you well
I am your stomach turned into knots
Track Name: Division St.
Going to and coming from half the day is already done
Number 3 yellow blue Lillie go on record write and think
Walk of fame to Cash's things play on the street my look it stings
Stay a while step in grime hold the phone give me some time
Strangers sing right here with me robots dance animatronically
Plastic guitars and cars on rust all but amps are an illusion to us
Beale off to soul of Stax I saw it all begin to crack
Bump into her three times last don't let these days go by so fast
All Sun Records air o planes write on the wall stand by the gate
We met from shenanigans five different states who's mind am I in
Track Name: Nimrod
Lying in the gutter intoxicated
Not by choice but you felt obligated
You might call yourself dedicated
All we see it a complicated life
Hang out with me sometime
You could be apart of a victimless crime
Conversation piece secret police
Small increase in my own city
Priceless speech and by the piece
Got a hold on me that you better release right now
You got a skill to anticipate
Never needed anyone anyway
For me to believe you will vendi(si)cate
No way in hell do I believe what you say
We lied about the way the water tasted
Burning but hugging the other wasted
You sat by and watched as we got hated
It will be this way til' the human race ends
The indian summer is hesitant to leave
I am not your only peeve we disbelieve and misprecieve
Just to think we can always leave
Let me grieve wear my heart on my sleeve
Come on and be don't be so naive
You got a skill to anticipate
Never needed anyone anyway
For me to believe you will vendi(si)cate
No way in hell do I believe what you say
Track Name: I'm Doing Fine
When your best friend hits the water you'll come crashing down too
They re re rearrange just what you're willing to do
The pills start kicking in and you're feeling just fine
You're staring in the mirror thinking bout' better times
I reached my nirvana and I know it won't last
I'm getting optical illusions I've had in the past
All my friends have left me once again I'm doing fine
The ignorant child will be a genius just give it time
When you're best friend hits the water you'll come crashing down too
They re re rearrange just what you're willing to do
The paper is ripping from under my pen
What is the now and then of time and time again
