Track Name: get with the programmer
hopeless it's the best time of your life
homeless you're a bastard if you try
hopeless though your mind controls the weather
endless is the instinct to survive

used to paint the colors of the sky
until that imagery was washed and hung to dry
now i soak my wounds to ease my mind
felt my blood let go and now i don't need to know
understanding

hopeless though you're walking and you're talking
homeless cause you're summoning the fire
hopeless and you say you're burning clean
resistance is the only line you need

used to walk to town and stare for hours
all the solemn faces look like friends of mine
now i sit at home try not to care
reflections of the night when we were so young
understanding
Track Name: fair share of false hopes
these are the fields where feelings died
live for the moment or the changing tide
find me spirit that can rattle my bones
can't stand to sit so I'll stand where I'm thrown

what is real?
I'm i real myself
as moments pass me by
i stop to tie my shoes

facing the music but you're not in the key
playing the victim but you're merely a thief
nothing's worth fighting for unless you're a king
you will struggle for power and the wealth of your winnings

what is safe?
if safety is a grave
you lost something you love
it made you look away
what is real?
are you real yourself
as moments pass you by
will you stop to tie your shoes

why won't you come out of your cage now
quit standing in the long line

there's a fire in the distance
and a match by your side
you're afraid to bear witness
so you cling to your life
you could live like a child
but you're afraid to let go
you keep building up walls
though the waves crash below
Track Name: opposites attract
technology i sing for thee
you got me hearing voices in this imagery
everything was fine until you ate your words
the crystal's radiation burning up your nerves

put the record on repeat honey
opposites attract and breed money don't you know
we are all the building blocks honey
as mystery's make their big entrance on the lawn

philosophies will get you stoned
as information penetrates your chromosomes
no comfort zone for your weary eyes
you stare into the screen and get satisfied

put the record on repeat honey
opposites attract and breed money don't you know
we are all the building blocks honey
as mystery's make their big entrance on the lawn

today is like any day
the news is gray
another statue bites the dust
the hopeless are the brave
systems give way
and still they have no soul to save

technology the human sea
is swallowing the world with it's industry
the clips are full the void is null
the idol has idle hands and spins the dial

do you ever wanna stop running
do you ever wanna stop running away from here
go and have your pipe dream honey
as mystery's make their big entrance on the lawn

I'm just a human baby
where am i to go
heaven brings unnatural disasters
takes our bodies below x2

today is like any day
the news is gray
another statue bites the dust
the hopeless are the brave
systems give way
and still they have no soul to save
someone set the stage
the future cage
and we will worship what we've done
into the lion's mouth
Track Name: driftwood safari
change is coming you can taste the days
the wolf is cunning you can see his ways

wanna celebrate all of the time x2

shrouded mystery the stars were made
let's blame tragedy on the streets we paved
I'd really love to fight the feeling though it's on parade

wanna celebrate all of the time x2

live together
fall together
all the symptoms are in your mind
end the silence
quench the violence
the circle binds us until we roll

wanna celebrate all of the time x2
Track Name: blinded by the power
sweet confusion disillusioned
a face slap from your enemy
mother earth she did give birth
the bad seed takes the lead again
all across the highways of my mind
i am thinking of you and the things that you do
please don't be cruel
take a dance from a fool tonight

are you blinded by the power
are you blinded by the power now

buried pieces of this city
the clouds began to multiply
everybody's sitting pretty
while they're trying to seize the day
deep into the hallways of our lives
i am looking for you we'll be knowin what's true
don't believe all you said
it was all in your head tonight

are you blinded by the power
are you blinded by the power now
Track Name: black hole goldmine
baby we've run the river dry
once our eyes were made for swimmin
now we've learned to cry
lately we've been an ash-less urn
a page without a face to burn
a life without a lesson learned

black hole goldmine
empty as your love

changin it's changin all the time
the right hand tells the left one I'm leaving you behind
baby let's leave these walls to die
cut our names into the bark
as ashes fill the sky

black hole goldmine
empty as your love

i feel lifted out of the physical
Track Name: your mind plays tricks on you
forgotten dreams killed the scene
a prom queen with a death wish
the five of cups you kill to love
and come tomorrow you'll drown your sorrow
in the valley though the mountain stands before you
you're asleep and so it goes
the answers come to those who know
the sun the moon
your power your doom

you are alive

and then you're not
papers rot it's your misfortune
the sea of glass you wash the past
in the mirror you are the seer
your mind plays tricks on you
now you wear the costume like a child
this time is an empty room
the lines are blurring now

you are alive

you can't stand to wait
you can't be your dreams when you are awake
the future age there's too much at stake

this too will end
until it's written again
Track Name: the big picture
couldn't get to sleep last night
fell into a two-way mirror
now your harsh words reflect light in

the big picture
safe with these chemicals
the big picture
like helping a hurricane
the big picture
who controls your life

couldn't stand to lose the fight
human nature on the skids
who will teach our offspring right in


the big picture
safe with these chemicals
the big picture
like helping a hurricane
the big picture
who controls your life

feeling illegitimate domestic like an immigrant
crude estimate of life on the shelf
your bones are made of dirt
and your blood is made of sand
your a victim of the things you demand
i believe we are coming to the crossroads in

the big picture
safe with these chemicals
the big picture
like helping a hurricane
the big picture
who controls your life
Track Name: mountain love
are you heading to the mountains now
the safety net of a mushroom cloud
all the people on the mountains know
what comes around goes around the volcano
as the days are getting darker soon
all the beaches covered up with ruins
the meaning of your life grows pale
it's no ending to a fairy tale
so you're better off to go home

now is the hour
so you can pretend
world power will be with you till the end
it's just popular opinion

it's not enough just to be your kind
domination is the national pastime
fountain of youth full to overflow
drink it up but it's just a placebo
when you realize you're out of control
you can live like you have soul
all the people who died would say
our understanding is a needle in the hay
try finding a needle in the hay

now is the hour
so you can pretend
world power will be with you till the end
it's just popular opinion

it's a poltergeist from paradise
the world tells you roll the dice
high up here the grass is greener
there's a party going on
