Track Name: Spit Baptism
Happiness now in the wakey zone
Dark wisdom kissed in my ear
Rising from dead
Toasting stale bread
I don't know anyone here

Happiness now is a dial tone
Seeing how far I could throw
Placing a bet
Stinking of sweat
Pain when my heart beats too slow

Happiness now is another bone
Chewed up before it was mine
Smells like the past
Granted half-assed
Plucked out from my brother's spine

Happiness now is a giant stone
Tied to my heart with your hair
Dragging me down
Out of this town
Can't tell what's water or air.....
Track Name: Black Thumb
Plants are pretty
Sometimes not
But nevertheless I can't keep them alive
I've got a black thumb
Water
Sun
Fertilizer
Mulch
Prayer
Nothing works at all
Don't ask my to babysit your posies
I will kill them
Track Name: If I Had a Hammer or a Sharp Knife or a Gun
The big man stands before you
And taps his foot in time
He winks - sarcastic gesture
Or is it that I'm afraid of confrontation
Even if just perceived
There's no real indication
That this guy is peeved

If I had a hammer or a sharp knife or a gun
I could make a statement without hurting anyone

The small man weeps before you
Reveals an empty hand
He pleads for my forgiveness
I don't understand
Afraid of all my weapons
He thinks I'm in control
I am a normal person
Can't you feel my soul?

If I had a hammer or a sharp knife or a gun
I could make a statement without hurting anyone
If I had a hammer or a sharp knife or a gun
I would rule the planet
Come on people have some fun
Track Name: It Will Be Okay
You thought you were cruising
But you see you're losing altitude
Now the engine's stalling
You can feel you're falling and you brood
Dreaming
Believing

It's the captain talking
Every word she's balking
Quiet/loud
No one wants to listen
Stare at ice that glistens in the cloud
Coping and hoping

I take your hand and take command
I swear that it will be okay
I'm sure we'll land just like we planned
I'm certain it will be okay
Or if we crash the molten ash feels no pain
And that's okay

Oh the pressure's dropping
Seems the world is stopping for a while
Suddenly we're lifting
And your mind is drifting and you smile
Over and over

I take your hand and take command
I swear that it will be okay
I'm sure we'll land just like we planned
I'm certain it will be okay
Or if we crash the molten ash feels no pain
And that's okay

That's okay
Track Name: People Death (Why?!)
Breaking her heart while you're copying art
Nothing else matters
Buying a home in a liquefy zone
Nothing else matters

Fearing the worst is like quenching your thirst
Nothing else matters
Thinking up jokes while the reactor smokes
Nothing else matters

You search for trivial answers
For questions always said
But why does everyone cry when you're dead:

Why?! Why?! Why?! Why?!

Losing your loan or forgetting your phone
Nothing else matters
Breaking your head over eating of bread
Nothing else matters

You look up maps and menus
But never look inside
No wonder you repeat the following
You died

Why?! Why?! Why?! Why?!
Track Name: This Again
He stood alone
Waits for the train
Thoughts of a place lost in his brain
Should give him hope
But there's the pain

He climbs aboard and stares outside
Window reveals the valley wide
Stuck in this tube
Nowhere to hide
Track Name: Moves Like Hagar
Might have had a worthwhile career
But then a friend of a friend hands you an ice cold beer
Drink down
Can't pass up that opportunity
When the mayor of the city holds a shiny key
It's now your town

People think you're rich but you're piss poor
Just be careful what you wish for
Wanted to see what's behind this door
Just be careful what you wish for

Build you bank but you lose all trust
When the spotlight hits the back of your head
And you're just shadow
Bash out the hits and the big crowd stays
But they still go on and on about the good old days
Sink slow below

People think you're rich but you're piss poor
Just be careful what you wish for
Wanted to see what's behind this door
Just be careful what you wish for

And the last guy they will miss more
Just be careful what you wish for
'cuz you'll still die
People like to blame
Whose fault? It's your
Just be careful what you wish for
'cuz you'll still die
Track Name: Parking Complex
The keepers with their bitter hearts
Will cast a spell in many parts
Their shackles twisted, rusted
But unlocked as if I'm trusted

I don't want to be here
I don't want to be here
I don't want to be here
I don't want to be here
I don't want to be here
Track Name: Incredible Options Have You No Shame
Look at me - I'm a fool
And the words will keep me trapped inside the school
And actions
And your dreams inside my head

I'll kill another year
Festering inside of here

And kill another

And I'll sleep more
And I'll sleep some more
And I'll eat more
And I'll eat some more
And I'll wish more
And I'll wish some more
And I'll age more
And I'll age some more

Sundown sundown
Sundown sundown

I'll pull myself up off the ground

The kitchen light
Painfully bright

An empty salt shaker

An empty cabinet
Use a dog bowl instead
An empty cupboard
Except a few crumbs of bread
An empty oven
But the burners are red
Put my hand down
Till the demons all fled

Another year
Another year

I'll make it somehow
Not sure when
Not now
It'll happen someday
Until then you pray

Look at me - I'm a fool
And my words will find me thrown into the pool

Incredible options

HAVE YOU NO SHAME
Track Name: Somewhere
I believe in somewhere
Fantasies of somewhere
But I've been to somewhere else instead

Will I find that somewhere?
Maybe there's no somewhere
Matching dreams of somewhere in my head
Track Name: Weakling Takes a Long Stupid Walk
