Track Name: Evening Sun
Sun may rise in the evening,
Oh no it doesn't change my ways.
To all you people according to season,
Oh no your dreams will fade away.

We're all tired,
Don't want to hear no complaints.
Did you really get higher
When you threw it all away?

Wild world,
These people I'm facing
Keeping minds wide shut no point of view,
Woah just for you to see right through.
The moon may shine in the day time
But that's fine,
Just got to keep your head tight.

As we try to change the world,
You can't try to save the world,
As we try to save the world,
You can't try to blame the world.

You don't even care
Though I know you feel it
Cause I am here to feel
The way you need it
And we don't really know what to say
So we take that long way
Always.
Track Name: Old Faithful
We're all alone,
No one's home in the unknown.
And so you see
It's just you and me
Roamin' round on bare feet.

I know you from before you haven't changed.
I know you from before you never aged.

Can't you see,
We're just animals,
We're flammable life.
And what's in store is death,
But out darkness comes light.
It's alright,
The world is beautiful
As cruel as it is.
It's just us and them
And the rest is pretend,
It's pretend.

You see the hills are always greener when it's in your bones to roam,
But if you're never satisfied
You just might
End up empty and dying alone.

Well, where are you going?
And what are you wishing?
The old moon asked the three.
We've come to kill the ego fish
Who live in our beautiful sea.

I know you from before you haven't changed.
I know you from before you never aged.

We're animals,
Animal.
Track Name: 180
It's not like you to be so complicated,
But I must not know you
Or so you've indicated
By the way you cut me so deep,
No hesitation.
You let me keep that knife.
You didn't need that knife.

Now I'm all bloody,
Alone and in denial.
You had me thinking
Maybe this could last a while.
But in my sleep baby you were plotting when and where.
Then you hit that light cause
You didn't need that light on.

Now I see it's alright.
These half circles never could complete.
The emptiness is all mine.
I'm 180 until infinity.

Descending down I am a resurrected man.
The scars formed at the basement of my hands.
And oh how I wish you could see me land
With a smile like this,
You'll never know what you missed.
It's bitter baby but my blood's never been very sweet.
This is how my heart tastes crushed up underneath your feet.
And I hope the next boy cuts you down as low as me,
Or you built that wall so high you can't feel at all.


Now I'm alone,
But I don't care,
It's all a game since I heard the riddle that you told me.
I'm sewn up tight,
Good as new.
Though not the same,
It's probably better off that you only knew the old me.

Even though you still know me,
Your complication can't control me.
All you ever did was break me down,
Find another motherfucker and you'll shake em.
Well yeah I'm still the same me,
Tell the world to fuck off and just blow me.

Here comes a perfect storm now,
There goes it tearing the world down.
Here comes a perfect storm just blowing the leaves away.
Here comes a perfect storm now,
There goes you tearing the world down.
Here comes a perfect storm just blowing the leaves away.
Track Name: Way Back
Fade away
Into oblivion.
It's obvious
We're just killing each other for fun.

Bring it back to the day
When everyone wasn't so serious.
Cause back in such ways,
Everyone wasn't so curious.

Way back when we weren't all trying to kill them.
Way back when everyone was so in love.

We've made up our minds,
We're still killing you.
So bring your gun
And that fucking mask too.

Bring it back to the day
When everyone wasn't so serious.
Cause back in such ways,
Everyone wasn't so curious.

Why can't we be friends?
I want to be friends.
If we could be friends
Well that'd be alright.
And we can pretend
These things never end
And we can pretend
That everything's fine.
Woah wait a minute Chester,
I'm a peaceful man.
But if you touch my dog I swear I'll,
If you touch my dog I swear.
Track Name: Isosceles Socrates
It never meant that much to me,
Tunnel vision on the TV screen
Got you running out of air to breathe.
They love to hold you down.
Do it really mean much to you?
Or is it all too much to chew?
I think there's way too much to loose,
These motherfuckers can not hold me down.

But to help you
I must first help me.
I'll find it in the dark.

I found myself there,
Floating in the sun.
Woah oh uh uh oh oh
Woah oh uh uh ohhhhhhh

You never meant that much to me
Cause water held not in your beliefs,
And I'm Isosceles Socrates,
My philosophies are tight and to the point.

But I never meant that much to you neither,
Ink name with the line drawn through.
Hell it's alright
I'm making moves,
I'll find a better one to hold it down.
Track Name: Music Spirits
Music spirits taking over now
Illuminate them through my teeth.
I don't care where they hail from,
Whether it is up above or beneath.
Music spirits taking over now,
As the fire dripping from my gun.
Quite the opposite of sober now,
Tonight gonna have some fun.

Crust evaporate before my eyes.
Sit there with an open stare.
Am I feeding myself lies?
I don't know,
And I don't care cause
Our appearances are just a disguise
From what is truly there,
Carcasses covered in flies.
I'm just sitting there in my chair.
Track Name: Overzealous
My legs,
They run,
But I'm still drowning in the sun,
Well overdone.
Impaired and scared
To face the world
Feeling so cold
But I'm not alone..

Might not know I feel the pain,
Cut Paul's wrists and make a shape
Even though you watch them heal.
Like a dove stuck in the rain,
We're all destined to complain,
Even though you feel my feels.

My legs,
They go,
Though I'm still flying through the snow.
How did they know?
Je suis seul
And I don't know how
We did not fall,
Je ne sais pas.

Might not know I feel the pain,
Cut Paul's wrists and make a shape
Even though you watch them heal.
Like a drug stuck in your brain,
We're all destined to complain,
Even though you feel my feels.

We're all insane I guess it's better off that way,
Filled words and thoughts and shit we never say.
I feel like demons want to take me every day but
I can not break I can not break,
They will not break through.
