Track Name: Talking Hands
And I see through fire
Bringing out the desire
I just want to inquire
Could you destroy my empire

And I beg with a fire
And you brand me a liar
Create and tear up the sire
I will destroy your empire

Just a little bit longer
I fall a little bit harder
Every time, every time
It's a little worse, than the last
x2

Fire, Fire, Fire

We climb a little bit higher
While I always admire
All the dreams you inspire
And devotion required

We get a little bit higher
And I stopped to admire
Self loathing you acquire
I will invade your empire

Just a little bit longer
I fall a little bit harder
Every time, every time
It's a little worse, than the last
x2

Fire, Fire, Fire, Fire
Fire, Fire, Fire, Fire

Tear it apart
Tear it apart
Tear it apart
Tear it apart

Just a little bit longer
I fall a little bit harder
Every time, every time
It's a little worse, than the last
x2

Tear it apart
Tear it apart
Tear it apart
Tear it apart
Track Name: Creation Limitation
Lost in my rationale, I'll never settle
So much imbalance that I'd be a fool
Fools win the race and then lost the game
Your race becomes just another loss
Another loss
Another loss
Another loss
Another loss

I wanna breathe more creation
But will it be just another limitation
I wanna breathe more creation
But will it be just another limitation
Another limitation
Another limitation
Another limitation
Another limitation

What can I do instead, I keep out shouting
Don't take another step, what if you fall
Wait for that hole to grow, we'll go together
Your mind's retention is your only savior
Your only savior
Your only savior
Your only savior
Your only savior
Your only savior
Your only savior
Your only savior

I wanna breathe more creation
But will it be just another limitation
I wanna breathe more creation
But will it be just another limitation
Another limitation
Another limitation
Another limitation
Another limitation

A world all the same, eliminate the
Mystery that you feel, the gamblers reign
Wake up somewhere foreign again
It looks to you like every other place appears
Every other place appears
Every other place appears
Every other place appears
Every other place appears
Every other place appears
Every other place appears
Every other place appears
Every other place appears
Every other place appears
Every other place appears
Track Name: You Logic
Toxic, mentally draining
Reason, over-exhausting
Fake it, been here before now
Leave it, leave how you're living

I could heed warnings, I could fix all my problems
But someone told me, I should fear nothing but

Complacency's a killer of desire and of dreams
I'll recreate my world in a image you find

Obscene, this lane is taken
Poison, how is that tasting?

You could have voices, you could be such a better whole
But someone told you, you can have it all

Shit you never needed, or knew anything about
Doomed to make you miss the things that aren't yet around
Take all those pretty gems, so you won't feel so bad
Supporting the very system, but you have to it's all you have

Complacency's a killer of desire and of dreams
I'll recreate my world in a image you find

Wont take it, not even when it's
So easy, sit back and relax

They'll say don't worry, she doesn't know the facts
All of your children, they really need to be on

Crack the fucking whip now they're all outta all outta all outta control
Thinking going astray, keep them quiet and keep them still
Feed them invented history, tell them their diagnosis
If that doesn't scare you enough, show them the fucking prognosis

Show them the fucking prognosis
Show them the fucking prognosis

Anxious, but that's so much better
Track Name: Loose Words
Loose words, take 'em home with you
Life isn't quite high def enough for me

Loose ends, there's an answer here
We wrote the code it was a whole language

Did we leave our friends behind
Did we leave our friends behind

Lost minds, stuck immobilized
Did we forget what used to be right here
Less cost (less cost), more yield (more yield) And it's so much worse
What did we leave when we turned our backs

Did we leave our friends behind
Did we leave our friends behind

(What did we leave, when we turned our backs)

What did we leave, when we turned our backs
What did we leave, when we turned our backs
What did we leave, when we turned our backs
What did we leave, when we turned our backs
Track Name: Blurry
My mind will treat me in one of two ways
One of two ways
One of two ways
Cage me up or set me free
What'll it be, what'll it be

The state will treat me in just one way
Just one way
Just one way
Tie me down until I speak
How will I pay
How will I pay

It's too much for me to take
(It's too much for me to take)
It's too much for me to take
(It's too much for me to take)
It's too much for me to take
(It's too much for me to take)
It's too much for me to take!

Hear the sirens comin' for me
My chariot glides on an asphalt sea
Hear the sirens comin' for me
Normalcy is gonna set me free

Hey! Hey! Hey!

Hear the sirens comin' for me
My chariot glides on an asphalt sea

The jury will tell me in so many ways
So many ways
So many ways
No one's from here you're a thief and a spy
Where will stay
Where can you stay

It's too much for me to take
It's too much for me to take
It's too much for me to take
It's too much for me to take!

Hear the sirens comin' for me
My chariot glides on an asphalt sea
Hear the sirens comin' for me
Normalcy is gonna set me free

Hey!
Get a job!
What?

Hear the sirens comin' for me
My chariot glides on an asphalt sea
Hear the sirens comin' for me
Normalcy is gonna set me free

Come on and cage me
Feed and enrage me
Come on and cage me
Feed and enrage me
Come on and cage me
Feed and enrage me
Come on and cage me
Feed and enrage me
Track Name: Grand Illusion
Appropriate and
You don't realize
Commodify and
You don't realize
Sexualize and
You don't realize
Apologize oh
That's all just fine

Temptress moves so fast and
She's just so fine
We take on forms and
They're just so fine
Destroy the future
That's all just fine
We just want fun and
That's all just fine

We all wanted to move on up
We all wanted to move on up
We all wanted to move on up
We all wanted to move on up
We all wanted to just get out
We all wanted to just get out
We all wanted to just get out
We all wanted to just get out
We all wanted to move on up
We all wanted to move on up
We all wanted to just get out
We all wanted to just get out

Rationalize but
Who's got the time
Conceptualize but
Who's got the time
Petrify and
The image dies
Where are they now
Are you alive

I eat more diamonds and
I might just die
I choke on gold and
I might just die
We just want fame and
We just might die
The endless party and
Will we survive?

We all wanted to just get out
We all wanted to just get out
We all wanted to just get out
We all wanted to just get out
We all wanted to just go home
We all wanted to just go home
We all wanted to just go home
We all wanted to just go home
We all wanted to just get out
We all wanted to just get out
We all wanted to just go home
We all wanted to just go home

We
All
Get
Used
All get used
All get used
All get used

We're all begging to just go home
We're all begging to just go home
We're all begging to be alone
We're all begging to be alone
We're all begging to just go home
We're all begging to just go home
We're all begging to be alone
We're all begging to just go home
Track Name: All Man Made
Architecture of his mind
Leaves me something to desire
Parallels, no I screamed
Parallels, no I screamed

Running faster
Don't throw that away
Running faster
There is no away

Sold reduction of our time
Leaves me reasons to inquire
Substitution, more to waste
Substitution, more to waste

Running faster
Don't throw that away
Running faster
There is no away

Brand new cage in which to dine
Feed the world on pesticides
All forgotten, skills and trades
All forgotten, all man made
Track Name: Spacious Angle
I can see right through your dreams
All the ends burst at the seams
Take the road so traveled that it's
Just dust beneath your body

Pay to take the side of plenty
Profit off the lives of many
It must be nice to come from wealth
Now you can brand yourself

The rip in your life makes you beg for more
A faster, wider more spacious angle
Why widen the scope
When you can't handle what you've got
The rip in your life makes you beg for more
A faster, wider more spacious angle
Why widen the scope
When you can't handle what you've got

I can see right through your plans
See you taking without hands
The deficit becomes you nicely
Is it just dust beneath you body

Because
The rip in your life makes you beg for more
A faster, wider more spacious angle
Why widen the scope
When you can't handle what you've got
The rip in your life makes you beg for more
A faster, wider more spacious angle
Why widen the scope
When you can't handle what you've got
The rip in your life makes you beg for more
A faster, wider more spacious angle
Why widen the scope
When you can't handle what you've got

Nobody left to plead
Who else can you be
Have at it feel the need
Have at it taste your greed

Nobody left to plead
Who else can you be
Have at it feel the need
Have at it taste your greed

I can see right through your dreams
All the ends burst at the seams
Take the road so traveled that it's
Just dust beneath your body

The rip in your life makes you beg for more
A faster, wider more spacious angle
Why widen the scope
When you can't handle what you've got
The rip in your life makes you beg for more
A faster, wider more spacious angle
Why widen the scope
When you can't handle what you've got
The rip in your life makes you beg for more
A faster, wider more spacious angle
Why widen the scope
When you can't handle what you've got
Track Name: Glass
Every time you think you're gonna die
Wake up!
You're still alive
You take another dive
Failure to thrive
You feel empty
Glass exposing
All of you parts
And your missing heart

Every time you tell another lie
Wake up!
I'm not that blind
Late night and better highs
These memories are mine
You feel empty
Glass exposing
All of your parts
And your missing heart

It runs in the family
It runs in the family
It runs in the family
This is my family
It runs in the family
It runs in the family
It runs in the family
This is my family

Every time we take another drive
Wake up!
You're on the side
Lost on I-95
These memories are just mine
You feel empty
Glass exposing
All of your parts
And your missing heart

It runs in the family
It runs in the family
It runs in the family
This is my family
It runs in the family
It runs in the family
It runs in the family
This is my family

Glass

It runs in the family
It runs in the family
It runs in the family
This is my family
It runs in the family
It runs in the family
It runs in the family
This is my family
Track Name: Take Yourself
Take me home tonight, Take me home tonight
Feel the sun on your face, Later this time in this place
Take me away from here, Take me away from here
Feel the wind on your face if only you can leave this place

Take me home tonight, Take me home tonight
Feel the sun on your face, Later this time in this place
Take me from the structure, Take me through the lecture
Mean, you say, I'm so sorry, Nail that coffin with my body

(Take me home tonight, Take me home)

Leave it out, Leave it out, Leave it out, Leave it out

Take me home tonight, Take me home tonight
Feel the sun on your face, Later this time in this place
Take your own self home, Take your breath alone
Scoff, it's your fault either way, Don't you want out of this place?

(Take me home tonight, Take me home)

Leave it out, Leave it out, Leave it out, Leave it out

Take me home tonight, Take myself home tonight
Feel the wind on my face, if only I can leave this place

(Take me home tonight, Take me home)
Track Name: 86 Tomorrow
I can't wait to be worth so much more
My value increasing every second of every day

Tell me how the world really is,
A decade behind and just as many grand in the hole

Where's your experience? I was taking drugs
To stay awake to wait on you

Tell me how the world really is,
A decade behind and just as many grand in the hole

To wait on you, To serve you food,
To clean your house, To drive you around

Tell me how the world really is,
A decade behind and just as many grand in the hole

Tell me how the world really is, Tell me how the world really is
I'm just not trying. I'm just not trying.
Track Name: A Simulation
Silence is a battle lost when the noise is all but winning
Future voice, suffer now, as the noise is winning

You want to blow it up but you're not strong enough
Assimilate to fight, educate, recreate (x2)

Taught to hate, replicate, scratch the skin, feel ashamed
Realize, angered eyes, keep the noise from winning

You want to blow it up but you're not strong enough
Assimilate to fight, educate, recreate (x2)

Speak up, dissonance, Speak up, tragedy
Speak up, complacence, Speak up, pedigree
Speak up, innocence Speak up, irony
Speak up, let it out Speak up, call it in

You want to blow it up but you're not strong enough
Assimilate to fight, educate, recreate (x3)
Track Name: Mothership
Μην μας αφήστε στο δρόμο να πεθαίνουμε, να πεθαίνουμε
Στην ΕΛΛΑΔΑ θα γυρίζουμε να ζήσουμε μαζί
Οπος 'αφήνη το παρελθόν σε ένα όνειρο σε ένα όνειρο
Θα το θυμάμαι με μυρωδιές , με τραγούδια , με μουσική

Το κράτoς θα μας αγοράσει

Με όλα τα προβλήματα Θυμάμαι σαν παιδί την ζωή μου εκεί
Με όλα τα προβλήματα Θυμάμαι σαν παιδί την ζωή μου εκεί

Οι αναρχικοί φωνάζουν αλληλεγγύη, αλληλεγγύη
Αλλά δεν είναι επιθυμία να βλέπιές οικογένειά σου να υποφέρουν
Όλοι φωνάζουν, όλοι μπράβο σας, όλοι μπράβο σας
Αλλά δεν νιωθουν τον πόνο σας από μακριά από μακριά

Το κράτoς θα μας αγοράσει

Με όλα τα προβλήματα Θυμάμαι σαν παιδί την ζωή μου εκεί
Με όλα τα προβλήματα Θυμάμαι σαν παιδί την ζωή μου εκεί
Track Name: Hookshot Sink
All I wanted to see was truth, Walking through the hidden doors
Falling through the same traps, Where are my magical eyes? (x2)

All I wanted to see were angles, turning the corners with better focus
Shadows restarting my long journey, Where are my hovering boots? (x2)

In the forest Lose your way More than once Lose the days

All I wanted to see was justice, Fire that burns can mend my defenses
Light those torches if you need answers, Where is my mirroring shield? (x2)

In the forest you can lose you way

In the forest Lose your way More than once Lose the days
Track Name: Binary Coding
Ask again another time (he or she is all I know)
Understand the finer line
Argue the grammar point (he or she is all I know)
Accept a new identity

I own my mistakes, I can change
Take this to my grave, I'm so ingrained

Story slotted to repeat (he or she is all I know)
Alter structure of my speech
Concern yourself with underneath (he or she is all I know)
When it should be what's beneath

I own my mistakes, I can change
Take this to my grave, I'm so ingrained

I can change, I can change, I can change

I own my mistakes, I can change
Take this to my grave, I'm so ingrained
