Track Name: winter in russia
you could scream out loud, until you pass out now. you wanna laugh out loud...HA! HA! HA! HA! HA! HA!
still it remains unnourtured, far from being weighed out, every time these lives are butchered. what do we even get out of this?
selfish sell outs, you see all the faces. when will it be solved? when will it be solved??
as far as i can tell, none of this is new. generations that have come before us can't solve what we've come to.
it's for us to do, so be honest.
it's for us to do, so be brave.
Track Name: open your eyes
ordinary times are far behind,
no it don't bother, but i will open your eyes again
the tenderness of my restart, it's okay if i play my part, as long as i do receive my prize, then you will open my eyes again. look in my eyes, what do you see? do you see you? or do you see me? lost in the cacophony, well we will open our eyes again.
Track Name: organizing (nowhere)
i hear the noise, the noise that you make. it doesn't help, it only hurts, it hurts. oh, don't you see? it was made for you, it's made for you and you honestly described. the lies you spout, you always spout these lies and they get you nowhere. i see your moving way, you never stay. you just won't let go of that guy who is full of lie, and always spies on what you do, but won't come through. no matter what you say, all your work got you nowhere.
Track Name: simple explanation in motion
in a place of contemplation, try avoiding all temptation. you make me want to be myself, forget about the common wealth. i hear your voice my stomach drop, i have no choice it's all i've got. you make me smile, quiver too, i've made my choice my choice is you. so take these words as they are, and remember all those shining stars. one for me, and one for you, a reminder that our love is true. you're the first part of my day, i wouldn't want it any other way. the stress from work i vent on you. you always help me see things through a brighter light, a better way to see. there's no one else i'd rather be with than you, and all kindness inside, i always want you in my life.
Track Name: you'll never know
hear my end, i'll justify what i've done, reveal my lies.
we'll trade it off, back and forth, but we still have stuff to sort. tensions getting high, i hear it in your cry. you've screwed up for the last time. you've got to go, you're not welcome here anymore, you should leave now. i admit, i've been wrong, in the woods you belong. back when life was so sweet, time's we meet we're complete. it's only gotten worse since we've taken course. just be glad that you're alive. you'll never know the disappointment i get when we refuse to exist.
Track Name: loss of state of mind and time
loss of state of mind and time...
stagger through corridors filled with existence, darkest of nights seem so hollow and distant. not too worry, dimensions will show all of the mysteries before too long.
loss of state of mind and time...
purest of thoughts bring out violent inventions, albert was crossed when he had good intentions. he paid the cost with his own apprehensions, all hope not lost he withheld all suspensions. not too worry, his theories have shown logical questions can answer unknown. what's the hurry to know the unknown? keep your mind open, you'll never be wrong. loss of state of mind and time...
Track Name: beaming lights are indirectly changing minds
into the background it denotes you, and finds you hiding away. standing beside a line of fate or something more to see. bottled up, and broken down, by signatures of time crescendos, inside. sinking further in the ether, find it out it's all around you. beaming lights are indirectly changing minds, standing as they should. stellar in the view of creations that were made to amuse you, and all of your friends who've been sleeping far too long.
Track Name: repairs are in order
into the woods that are inside, behind this shell i hide behind. fall down and sell all that's inside, and then retell another time. mark it down, as if you've tried to understand these passive times. so much divides entire live that have nothing to hide behind. distrust inside these bitter minds, for reasons they will never find. often times i will find repairs are in order. sullen mind, up all night, and repairs are in order to lead a productive life i need to lead. i'm on my way back home, so i can grow, and tell you all about it on some other day. until that time i'll stay inside and hide behind this shell of mine.
Track Name: door in the floor
think out of the box, and through the door. the door that was leading down into the floor. what i would find is a mystery to me, i hope i can make it through this disease. and i was wondering the night before, i was pondering that open door. through the window feel the air outside it's in this moment that i truly feel alive. inscriptions, dusty floors. walk down that open door. what a shock when i got to the top, because from what i saw i did not understand. look into my eyes, what do you see? do you see you? or do you see me? i don't even know sometimes, no i don't. no i don't even know some times. and i was wondering the night before, i was pondering that open door. through the window feel the air outside, it's in this moment that i truly feel alive. inscriptions, dusty floors. walk down that open door. what a shock when i got to the top, because from what i saw i did not understand. you and i would stand, you and i would stand alone every night. through dimensions of light, slowly fade off into unknown. i was wondering the night before, i was pondering that open door. through the window feel the air outside, it's in this moment that i truly feel alive. in time watch it fall down in halves, i recall desperation, information, dial down i recommend.

Track Name: why?
stumble as i fall, straighten up don't be so put upon, hardly a fire in the way. have a solid soul, you know a little character never hurt anyway. rhythm in the moon, and i wait, but i will never find it there. and all i can say, all i can say is "why?"
eyes are seeing stars, beaming lights indirectly changing minds painting a portrait of a way. elevated rules said allowed and filled with confidence, hardly a mumble in my say. rhythm in the sunlight, and i wait but i will never find it there. and all i, all i can say is "why?"
