Track Name: a colorful death
thank you it's been a colorful death
Track Name: i love you but you make things harder
I love you but you make things harder
You’ve thickened and preened me but now it’s time to go
I love you but there is something else to long for
You’ve caressed and raised me but now it is time to let go

We fought for something we didn’t know

Every time we got a prize and got excited
Every time we get a prize and get excited, it disappears

I love you and you’ve made things great
You’ve tricked and roughened me but now it is time to move on
I love you but I am tired of fighting…

I love you but you are not enough
Track Name: and the sun decays them
When the scissors are rusty and the thunderstorm rots them
and the sun decays them while gripping on some fame
When the vivisection isn’t enough and the fancy words don’t rhyme
and the sun decays them while gripping on some name
and the sun decays them while gripping on some fame

When the radio is broken, life rots them
and the sun decays them while gripping on some fame
the sun decays them while gripping on some name
Track Name: these trees don't know (what to think of it)
She never goes very far you know because the people told her so
He’s been scraping up his mind off the ground all day, now
She sits on a bench in the park
There’s no smiling in those eyes because everything moves in slow motion

These trees don’t know what to think of it
These trees don’t know what to make of it
Track Name: fourth state
On an island with no sound
Artificial blood
They are calling, they are dreaming
In the garden of shame

In the spiral you might find
In the fourth state there are curtains

No sleep, no peace, no dreams will come
Track Name: with our likes
Volunteer your own information
refuel the sorting machine
we’ll build our cyber personalities and feed the system with our likes

Spoon feed yourselves relevance
under our noses
personality types, personality types

We give our trust to search engines
and build our lists
and demand immediacy with expensive devices to guide us

Volunteer your own information
refuel the sorting machine
we’ll build our cyber personalities and feed the system with our likes
Track Name: taxidermy with a witch's wrist
It’s late at night
grave yard hitch
taxidermy with a witch’s wrist
I don’t go outside I like my stench
I’m gonna wrapped it up and stuff it as high as a pole
I’ve got no need for moving slow

It’s an absent commodity
lobotomy
don’t test my chances with the organic lottery
If I’m not there by now you know I’m gonna make it soon
because that son of a bitch isn’t bathing in the neon moon

Set the controls on retrograde and stretch out on the plain
Don’t count on reminisce or dissonance
You are all the slave of the six
without a life to give away

It’s indigestible susceptible
to impaling myself on things erectable
I can’t stop now the baron is calling my name
to execute shame
Track Name: man for every season
So why do you run at this pace?
And do you always have a reason?
You better get with the human race
You’ve been replaced by a man for every season
