Track Name: What's With All the Birds?
What the hell are you doing here?
With your magnificent colors
And your fancy songs
Your existence insults me - it mocks me
And takes me away to a place
On the other side
Of our cosmic arrangement

You’re a dinosaur - You’re a turkey
You’re a marvel of evolution
But who cares?

And our time is up and our time is up...
And our time is up and our time is up...

I’m a fighter - you’re a spider
I’m a winner - you beginner
I know each way from Z to A
I reach higher - you bend wire

And our time is up and our time is up...
And our time is up and our time is up...
Track Name: Fading Abilities
We feebles are the same
Can’t resist the old game

The earth quakes you
And makes you question your competence
I write it down
Who writes things down anymore?
Anymore? Anymore? Anymore?

Time is fleeting - we all know this
No competing - ignorance bliss

Lay down my head - night is awake
Speaking in words I forgot
Or never heard - my education failed me
Resting my back broken again
Twisted in ways unyouthful
Losing the herd
My hope for healing fades away
Track Name: The Fog Means Something
There’s an empty space
Right behind my face
Where dreams used to be
But now it’s only me

Eyes.. eyes.. eyes.. eyes..
Track Name: Boring Origin Story
Suburban upbringing
Upstate New York
Basic comfort
Neither poor nor stupid upper class
Normal parents still married
All my siblings got along

How could it be art spews from me?
Am I hiding bodies?

Where to begin
No religion no sin
No big loss no win
My origin
Push in the pin
All the places I've been
And no longer in
My origin

No genius
Just a lot of practice
Honing the craft a long time
Average grades
Drama free social life
I pushed the boundaries only when I had to
Well regarded
Uncompilicated
Just leave me alone I'm trying to eat my lunch

How could it be I have insight?
Ask yourself - flee or fight?

Where to begin
No religion no sin
No big loss no win
My origin
Push in the pin
All the places I've been
And no longer in
My origin

Talk to my kin
It's a positive din
I maxed out the min
My origin
This loony bin
Is a kick in the shin
So why must you spin
My origin
Track Name: Dilated
Where did he go?
Where am I?
And who are they?
Who are they?
Who are they?

Will I return?
What is home?
And what's goodbye?
What's goodbye?
What's goodbye?
Will I stay?
Or will I fly?
Track Name: Let Me Introduce You to Your Psoas
Press the point on my back
Push it through
I'm not afraid to show you what these buttons do
Feel the jolt ripping down to that nook

I'm unaligned... I'm unaligned...
I'm unaligned... I'm unaligned...

You can be very best much like me
Tense and release as guts will rot internally
Stand up straight
Doing great
Read the book

I'm unaligned... I'm unaligned...
I'm unaligned... I'm unaligned...
I'm unaligned... I'm unaligned...
I'm unaligned... I'm unaligned...
I'm unaligned... I'm unaligned...
I'm unaligned... I'm unaligned...
I'm unaligned... I'm unaligned...
I'm unaligned... I'm unaligned...
