Track Name: Bigger or Better
Now that he knows his life is free
He understands the possibility
Why not write it down remember the lines
Light it up downtown and float in time

With closed eyes feel the dark
Somewhere in the palm there is a spark
Noone was left when the ocean bled
Slow down cause it’s all in his head

Take on a new life and watch them grow
See the glare of headlights just like fireflies
The sirens drew us to the final step
Decide on bigger or better

Here it is
Where is it?
Track Name: Fiends
Tired of my cube and the coup we can’t make it our own
And the tiny space where we laid out the race
These tiny ribs are mine they collapse at thought of the work
Left to do like stuffing and drool
Force feed away don’t talk into the hole that we’ve dug
Open up your hands, grasp it real tight, feel the weight of it all,
pretend to play

The hero’s first clash, The hero’s so weak
The hero’s first clash, The hero to see

Lift up my heart and gaze out my soul
Don’t wanna have it all, but don’t wanna lose control
Get off your back and bring us in-line
We will fight off all fiends tonight as a sign

Radio waves pull down on the heart of a man
New long empire drags us around the hall
Walk down the street and see the daytripper out for all
The little brown bag wrapped in white plastic bags
There’s a chance the will is stronger than forced form
Plastic and bling, exhaust neon pink, comatose extinct, fucking stinks

The hero’s first clash, The hero’s so weak
The hero’s first clash, The hero to see
Track Name: Bounce
Small and fine, we tightly wind
Blind to what we know we see
Feel for what we need
bound to see it wrong
We twist the truth of what we pass along

Next of kin, is worn within
Deaf is what we claim to be
Feel for what we need
bound to hear it wrong
We twist the truth of what we pass along

Life divine we breathe in time
Dumb heart keeps the beat
Feel for what we need
bound to say it wrong
We twist the truth of what we pass along

Everyone I know they were meant to be
Timeless and free, timeless in me
Everyone I know they were meant to be
Timeless and free, they were timeless in me
Track Name: Artist Right
In the field, the flowers bloom without control
At the pass, just follow direction with eyes closed
Write this down, remember the lines but resist to know
Turn back now set it off make the sparkle bright,
I’ve got a new kind of fire now

This is an artist right, born in the context of the picture tonight
This is an artist right, lost control of the picture lights
Track Name: The Rendering
In this town where I was born
Everybody knows your face
It’s all around at your gate
From the friendly smile to your hate

We’ve seen the world through a different eye
And the eye was pointed back at us
The entry door reads no entrance
Lock the door and swallow the key

In this place where things are told
Sit down and shut your mouth
Everything here must be sold
Everyone has bought their way out

In this town where I was born
Everybody has an empty plan
The cheap books and the cross they ran
Touch a mile marker from here

Welcome back your gentle heart
I’ll welcome back your gentle hands
Escape is ahead
To race the dead
When they ran
When they ran
Track Name: Reset
Open up your eyes
Reset start over inside
I have made a million things wrong
Breath until everything is gone

Noone needs a million friends
Just one who tells it like it is
Take it back, take it back, take it back
With the last look noone knows

Don’t figure it out when it’s too late (this is the warning sign)
Don’t figure it out when it’s over (noone here will survive)
Track Name: This is War!
Nighty night, these tiny eyes are so red
Bursting out, at the wreck of the unsaid
No way in, no way out, the sides they will show
No way in, no way out, let me go

You can hear the rumble and make out the drone
Make what you can from the sound, the sound and the tone
There’s a place where the walls aren’t so thin, walls so thin
Listen close and take it all in, take it all in

This is War!
There’s a fight
There’s a shyness left for us
This is War!
There’s a fight
There’s a shyness built for us

Seeing double vision now
Who’s left in this room somehow

No way in, no way out, the sides they will show
No way in, no way out, let me go
There’s a place where the walls aren’t so thin, walls so thin
Listen close and take it all in, take it all in

Seeing double vision now
Who’s left in this room somehow
