Track Name: Suicide Boy
I should have known that you would only disappear
sometimes it's hard to take advice
He said stop, don't you know
fourteen only breaks your heart so don't let go
or he will run you through the gears

Suicide boy
you could never see what happens
right in front of your face
Suicide boy
I cannot believe you left me
all alone in this place

In retrospect you never saw your own demise
maybe one day you'll move the tree
You didn't stop, lost control
now we're bleeding and you're never gonna know
that it gets better through the years

Suicide boy
you could never see what happens
right in front of your face
Suicide boy
I cannot believe you left me
all alone in this place

Your life has barely started
still you sit around all broken hearted
waiting for something
Your life has barely started
now you're showing me it's soon departed
it just doesn't have the end this way

Suicide boy
you could never see what happens
right in front of your face
Suicide boy
I cannot believe you left me
all alone in this place
Track Name: Six Ways to Sunday
Who does your conscience eat?
Will you feel the gravity when
your sky comes crashing down
and you are swallowed by yourself
because you're so empty

Six ways to Sunday
You'll never find
Six ways to Sunday
All of your life

Why do the heathens seek
Solace one day a week?
Then they will go pretend
like they are puritans and
when it's over do it all again

Six ways to Sunday
You'll never find
Six ways to Sunday
All of your life

So when you come crashing down
you will see me laughing
down from your pedestal
you will see me laughing

Six ways to Sunday
You'll never find
Six ways to Sunday
All of your life

Your life
Track Name: Everything
So you were something else alright
a kitten's roar and fangs were flying through the night
your idle threats don't mean a thing
maybe you are nothing all the same

So where's your understanding?
You're the boy with everything
Seems you could comprehend me
You're the boy with everything

The guy you just threw out the door
years ago was just a boy sent off to war
you're glad he didn't die but
I don't think he made it back alive

So where's your understanding?
You're the boy with everything
Seems you could comprehend me
You're the boy with everything

Are we all so set?
So soon to forget

So where's your understanding?
You're the boy with everything
Seems you could comprehend me
You're the boy with everything
Track Name: Babble On
So no one wants to listen up
just shut your mouth don't look so shocked
You were always talking talking
trapped in the tangled tales you weave
when no one stops to listen
your words have lost all their meaning

And it tears you up inside
tearing up what you despise
And it tears you up
cause it's hard to hate everything

So you are on the circuit now
just FSU somewhere, somehow
you were always falling falling
as hard and fast as you could play
and no one stopped to notice
maybe you're better off this way

And it tears you up inside
tearing up what you despise
And it tears you up
cause it's hard to hate everything

You're blaming everyone in site
for what you've shredded in your life
You were always searching searching
for something else to rip apart
Knowing more than everyone else
will always keep you in the dark

And it tears you up inside
tearing up what you despise
And it tears you up cause
it's hard to hate everything
Track Name: Mud Junkie
Fight against my empty mind
don't wanna fall a step behind
it seems there's too much here
to pull myself away
I was looking for something
then I found you on the screen
I'm tired of dealing with myself

I'm losing my foundation
Real life it ruins this vacation
I'm losing my foundation
Real life it ruins this vacation

There's nothing left to do
jack in and dive into
back to the mother lode
give me what I'm craving so
There's nothing left to do
jack in and dive into
back to the mother lode
give me what I'm craving so

Fight against my empty mind
don't wanna fall a step behind
it seems there's too much here
to pull myself away
I was looking for something
then I found you on the screen
I'm tired of dealing with the fact

That I'm losing my foundation
Real life it ruins this vacation
I'm losing my foundation
Real life it ruins this vacation

There's nothing left to do
jack in and dive into
back to the mother lode
give me what I'm craving so
There's nothing left to do
jack in and dive into
back to the mother lode
give me what I'm craving so
Track Name: E=MC2
He tried to make things better
his mind gave us the key
and so we took his life and made it a mockery
But all throughout our lives and
all throughout history
we spent all of our time exploiting technology

Now we're waiting for your fall
And we're waiting til there's nothing at all
Waiting for your, waiting for your fall

Now decades have gone by and
the threat still feels the same
everyone's gotta have one, just when did we go insane?
Gave nightmares to the children
tainted what we adore
made life so meaningless and all in the name of war

Now we're waiting for your fall
And we're waiting til there's nothing at all
Waiting for your, waiting for your fall

You say it's gonna happen
it's just the prophecy
there is no need to argue with our own destiny
Pretend to be so passive
pretend that all is well
you'll stand to fight each other but you won't save yourselves

Now we're waiting for your fall
And we're waiting til there's nothing at all
Waiting for your, waiting for your fall
Track Name: Separate But Equal
Strange how you can't hide
after the storm
watch the rain subside
I'll see your eyes
now I can't lie
we're separate but equal
I've still lost my head over you

You won't see my cry
even when I bleed deep down inside
so here I die

Now I can't hide
after the storm
watch the rain subside
I'll see your eyes
now I can't lie
we're separate but equal
I've still lost my head over you

I'm not made of stone
I am not the statue that you know
please come home

Now I can't hide
after the storm
watch the rain subside
I'll see your eyes
now I can't lie
we're separate but equal
I've still lost my head over you
Track Name: Fast Food
Tangled up the lights are all down
there are so many freaks in fast food we'll drown
Seems I fell out of line cause I am not that cool
sent to the garbage pile cause I don't eat like you

And you're so cool

It sticks inside and it makes me feel bad
all of the grease the lunch in the bag
So dine with him on frozen pure ambrosiac bliss
the one that you so adore the mirror that you kiss

In your bliss

Uniform
And you're so cool
In your
Uniform

Tangled up in your uniform
you try so hard not to fit that you still conform
Your little anti-code is just as stale and dry
you're just a negative of all that you despise

In your uniform
Track Name: Cowbell
Lost your head now
how does the bucket feel so deep
rolling all around
now there's blood on your shirt

shirt shirt shirt

You're reaching out now
to say the things you never could
it's the only thing that
speaks up in your neighborhood
So you've got power
and now the reaper's your best friend
but you'll never know
until he gets you in the end

end end end

How does it feel?
How does it feel?

Lost you gun now
the cold steel cast a lovely spark
left you so profound and
left your brain liquid and dark
Is it fun now?
To find what you could never touch
there is no slow motion
it's just over and it sucks

sucks sucks sucks
Track Name: Icetrays
Excuse the interlude
it seems you've expressed your views
I saw you shit just like a dog
You wear your collar well
maybe I learned something new
some creatures like a canine crawl

And then the storm begins
gray clouds on sordid wind
you are the darkness of my life
And then the storm begins
gray clouds on sordid wind
you are the darkness of my life

It was a balmy day
you took the sun away
blocked the corona with your girth
Chewed all that you could horde
you stole all of the ice trays
Your white wash graves are all you're worth

And then the storm begins
gray clouds on sordid wind
you are the darkness of my life
And then the storm begins
gray clouds on sordid wind
you are the darkness of my life
Track Name: Crotch
So we were repressed
sometimes repression is severe
but there are some things
that I do not want to go near

Now I know ignorance is bliss-
fully missing all your tricks
Mixed up in your politics
I think I’ll close my eyes

Allegedly you've got so much
but it's something I don't want to touch
when you say you've got so much going for you
can't you think about anything but your crotch?

It seems you've regressed
sometimes regression is a sign
that there is nothing
that there is nothing going on

Some things are better left alone
I don't wanna see you get it on
And you're shameless as a dog
So now I close my eyes

Allegedly you've got so much
but it's something I don't want to touch
when you say you've got so much going for you
can't you think about anything but your crotch?

So when I'm at home and I'm surfing my TV
guess I just don't want your big fat ass assaulting me
Maybe I'm uptight
but I won't be the one who's catching all of your diseases tonight

So we were repressed
Sometimes repression can be good
