Track Name: Figure It Out
don't make me do this you want it but you complain because you're afraid of calling a spade a spade civilization at a point of no turning back a spark without ignition of a greater cause than power over people that never learn who will sink and who will burn figure it out my mind is breaking and my bones are shaking me out of control now the pit is gonna swallow me whole different lives are thrown into the line ever tumbling over themselves then it's back into their cells figure it out the writing is on the wall see we're splitting up by race and you're thinking so far ahead to not believe in it now
Track Name: Everything Ends
when i lose sight of the future or break in nervous sweat i need something to remember something hard to forget everything ends
Track Name: Dig In
dig in to the rhythm that sets you off have you let loose this month? i'm always chasing phantoms and i'm always hiding scars so far it's hard but if help is offered i dig in
Track Name: Atlantis
swim i swim i swim by the time i start swimming the tide is high and i'm stuck in the middle of it all but there's a planet underwater there's a planet underneath we'll be a planet underwater i've seen it in my dreams i feel it when i'm over the bottom of the sea
Track Name: Kissing the Sky
kissing the sky my baby you’ll fly it’s just a matter of your space and time sit out of turn we’ll pillage and burn the pages turning make it hard to discern one at a time i think you’ll be fine there’s other messages in menial lies zero for five you better decide it’s never worth it and you know the sacrifice kissing the sky my baby you’ll burn the sun is closer but you don’t know why stay and ignore if i weren’t so bold i’d change the ending like i did before night into nights more than alive your generosity is wasting my time sound after sound dug underground you’re always faster when you run instead of hide
Track Name: There Was No War
i had a dream there was no war a circle drawn but no one sure what it was they really stood for the first and last to cry as some made up their minds to be loved and feel loved all the time and some gave in to fear without a sacrifice the pressure of their lives crumbled in the eyes of the wise i had a dream there was no war and no one knows what they're fighting for
Track Name: Don't Go To The Zoo On Acid
a million things to do don't go to the zoo on acid it'll break your heart it'll scar your mind nothing spells a bad time like acid at the zoo we are all soul constrained in a cage but don't we all accept that sort of pain?
Track Name: Take My Breath Away
in the heat of august lying on the grass searching for the words to make you fall in to my arms the sun is setting slow there's a shiver down your spine imagine all the places we could go if you were mine mountains full of forests deserts under tribal heat endless fields of snow made for canvasses in dreams but it hurts to much to ask, to take my breath away show me through the motions of falling on my face every hope abandoned for another time and place when nothing is said and done you take my breath away
Track Name: She's Alive!
she's alive but feels so dead inside at the core she's wanting something more like a meteor collision and all its obstacles she wants to jump in to the fire alone she's alive head of porcelain and hair of twine silver eyes and though she's still divine am I safe or running out of time to turn back in to her?
Track Name: Missing Words
i shouldn't be afraid i shouldn't feel so ashamed but there's an animal in my face and there's an animal in my brain your letter don't mean a thing i waited on hands and knees and the subtext brought me down missing words so tactfully leave it to my post-neurotic fantasy i don't sleep at night and i'll be missing you all my life watch it be my fate written on the paper must have been in shock but i didn't feel it later missing words don't lie and i've read between the lines and i'll be missing you all my life
Track Name: Aerial Attack
what sings for me will scream at you weren't we fools to think we ever had a clue? speak to me in words that I don't understand a signal is forcing through my shaking hands and have we gone our separate ways? it's taken more than days to see you're never coming back in dreams I see a scar on every body victim of your aerial attack
