Track Name: Start The Day Off
You can hear a voice, it's telling you to leave
Knowing you can't win, looking at what you've done again
Never to remain the same, you've ruined everything again
It's expected, because of you, doesn't matter if it's true
You can't make it alright, you can't make it alright
Find a million ways to fail, now maybe you will prevail
Don't you wish you weren't here, don't you wish you weren't here
Track Name: Impermanent
It goes in, it goes out, I don't know why I used to listen (x2)
There's a building in the country where they make a lot of money, and they tell you how to live
When I was a kid, I'd listen to them speak, but I didn't agree with their actions or how they'd see people just like me
Except i knew hoe to blend then I decided that I didn't want to pretend
I felt their hypocrisy, and knew that just wasn't me
Now it goes in, it goes out, I don't know why I used to listen
Now I see the world for the lie that it is, tryin not to trip, tryin to remain positive
Not a nihilist otherwise miserable, that's how it is when you feel it's all an illusion impermanent
I ain't in a rush to leave, but I know the ferryman's savin me a seat, but I only know what they told me, so all I know is I really know nothing
Now it goes in, it goes out, I don't know why I used to listen
It goes in, and it goes out, I don't know why I used to listen
Track Name: Windows Into The Void (Like Pompeii)
Got you screwed up, you've been used up, now you're tensed up, like you're bout to erupt (x2)
Like Pompeii (x3) return to the ash
Like Pompeii (x3) return to the ash
Like Pompeii (x3) return to the ash
Journey through the other side look around at all the eyes dead inside left to rot inside their own mind we're livin different lives, but the narratives align in as much as we're all lost in his dimension we can't hope to find clarity buried in the lies from our youth now there's no use we're just runnin round in a flesh suit viscera, tendons, wounds that won't mend, and a program runnin that just says you'll never win
Ain't no one tryin to hear your problems
They're still tryin to fix all their own
Good luck findin how to solve them
You're in this one alone
Windows into the void, watch the abyss look back
In this space, and time, faster toward the black
Got you screwed up, you've been used up, now you're tensed up, like you're bout to erupt (x2)
Like Pompeii (x3) return to the ash
Like Pompeii (x3) return to the ash
Like Pompeii (x3) return to the ash
Track Name: Industry Smash
Life begins like it ends, in the dark, in the dark
Open eyes closed mouth as I start to look around, no sound look down I don't know what it's about, runnin round head down feet planted in a cloud turn around shadows keep runnin down the road now I'm in the wilderness learnin all about anatomy, hide and seek catch my smoke signal from behind a tree, this is far beyond a dream nothing I have ever seen this nightmare is too surreal to be scary
this nightmare is too surreal to be scary, but it'll catch up later, and take a different form, eyes worn now my mind's eye is gone to the eye of the storm, turbulent tempest, a hurricane of locusts, drinking my performance hoping it'll make me focus, I wanna share my pain with the world, do you think they'll notice
I wanna share my pain with the world, do you think they'll notice, am I just a waste of bandwidth, oxygen, the reluctant optimist the other shoe will drop again make sure you're tuned in, there's a hole in the bathroom floor so we don't use the ceiling fan no more
Life begins like it ends, in the dark, in the dark
Track Name: Friday Night Interlude
It's been a real long week, had to fight to keep from stayin asleep
don't wanna move, and I don't even wanna think
of doin nothin at all, but maybe havin a drink
I can't just stare at the walls, they're closin in on me
so I text all my people, but nobody's answering so I'm all up in my thoughts steady analyzing what I could've donw wrong, and every word that I said now the dark clouds swirl all around my head, but I shake 'em
and take a walk to the store, buy a 40 for my trouble then the phone goes off, there's a party goin on, and they want me to come, they'll be here in a minute to come pick me up
so we get to the spot, and I walk in the door, there's a bunch of people I ain't never seen before, so I find an empty corner where the light's real low, and I keep my head down, and hope nobody will notice that I'm awkward, just standin there, I got nothin to say so I stand there, till it's time to go I just drink, and try to blend in, tell myself I'll do better if i ever get the chance again
Track Name: Toxic Love Jones
I can't help you, and you can't help me, and we can't help that we're bad for each other (x2)
Symbiotic cyanide, my heart's pumpin in triple time cause when you're near I kinda feel like I wanna die
We can run around in astral planes and see the stars, or we can go downtown, and get kicked out of all the bars
You say i never call enough that's why you think I hate, but I been fightin demons maybe I'll call back one day
Got my hands around the neck of an ice cold beast, do i drain the blood from it, or does it empty me
There's something strange about you, and I like it
I can't help you, and you can't help me, and we can't help that we're bad for each other (x2)
You know I ain't nothin, but you choose to stick around
you can see my next breakdown from the best seat in the house
when the forest falls I'll record all the sound, and then make a new song you can download off of soundcloud
when you tell me all the words you know I need to hear, i am no longer crushed give medication a cheer
now we laugh at our faults, and don't bother with blame, it doesn't matter if I'm sorry cause the words hold no weight
I can't help you, and you can't help me, and we can't help that we're bad for each other (x2)
There's something strange about you, and I like it
Misadventures on the street, never know just who you'll meet
you know I'm the pied piper weirdo king, homeless kids hang in the morgue cause that's where they do their thing, no all bodies talk, but the ones who do ain't mean, and they ain't as cold as people in the check cashin line, they don't stare at you nosed turned, they can't open their eyes, they got nothing to cling to, no one to depend on, we're just trudging along, the life cycle will eat it's own
I can't help you, and you can't help me, and we can't help that we're bad for each other (x4)
There's something strange about you, and I like it
Track Name: Down On The Pharm
Let it sink in, control from within, this is help, that's all there is (x2)
Now go
Get out and smile, show you're worthwhile, weighed by the ounce, and shown around
Defects are found, now you're cast out, that will be all, you're not needed now
If I could, don't you think I would have by now
Let it sink in, control from within, this is help, that's all there is (x2)
Now go
Clear blue sky vitamin rays, all I see is shades of grey
Welts on neck from how I hang, I think I was born this way
Join in as I medicate, find reason to celebrate
made it through another day, got numbness in a sober state
smoke is thick the flood is deep, washing all the world off me
drowning in a field of dreams, the desolation's comforting
play my part, and do it well, with masters you can never tell
woke up in a minor hell, check these complaints I might as well go
Let it sink in, control from within, this is help, that's all there is (x2)
Track Name: Submit To The Wave
Submit to the wave, you must submit to the wave (repeat)
Acid reign, color change, dimensions never were the same
cant explain how it's legit but I got fixed with normal things
life under a tree until it started gettin quiet, then I just focused on the ongoing riot
ride the wave thru undertow, I'm surfin on insanity, I know I still got far to go, but I ain't even mad at me I can be the lotus pod or I can be the fire, architect of everything, and nothing's my desire
Submit to the wave, you must submit to the wave (repeat)
I can find beauty in a wall of blood splatters, thru the tragedy, and triumph it grows clear that nothing matters
There's a peace within the storm, and in the eye is where it lives, look for what has gone away, and miss all that it gives
ponder on the sorrows, and reflect upon the joy, come crack a cold one, and smoke somethin with ya boy
we call it philosophy, but it's just livin life, praise for all the happiness, and lessons from the hard times
Submit to the wave, you must submit to the wave (repeat)
This ain't bout givin up, it's about gettin up, doin for self, not waitin for anyone
turn the tides, stay strong, go hard, it ain't always how you expect, but you can do it all
plan your work, work your plan, don't cease, then you'll stand upon the top while the others stay asleep
striving for mastery of the self, and everything that I hold within the grasp of this thing we call reality
Submit to the wave, you must submit to the wave (repeat)
Track Name: It Don't Stop
All the madness, always exists
All the sadness, it don't stop
All of the bliss, always exists
All the happiness, it don't stop
Runnin on fumes for a thousand miles, the engine whines it might break down
So far to go, and I can't stop now, gears will grind, learn to love the sound
Pistons work, combust with hellfire, scream like a banshee, smile like Cheshire
I ain't never felt like this before, staring down the road with my foot thru the floor
I'm a man possessed, a titan in flesh, I ain't holdin the wheel, too busy wavin at death
I ain't holdin the wheel, too busy wavin at death
Imagine we're just an illusion we thought up, everything that we see is a reflection of us, all the lies, all the hate, all the love, all the peace, everything good, and bad dwells within you, and me
It really ain't as far-fetched as you might think, from the ancient religions up to quantum theory, there is no beginning or end to this reality, our component parts are stretching out to infinity
All the madness, always exists
All the sadness, it don't stop
All of the bliss, always exists
All the happiness, it don't stop
