Track Name: useless
I wanna fly
To make it out alive
But I still can’t touch the sky
And I’m never satisfied
Because I’m

Trained in denial
All my time is on file
I just put on a smile
And let go for awhile

Snooze
Pay your dues
Or you might lose
But what’s the use?

My mind runs away
I can’t make it behave
And now my brain has decayed
And my whole life’s in disarray
Good thing I’m

Trained in denial
All my time is on file
I just put on a smile
And let go for awhile

Snooze
Pay your dues
Or you might lose
But what’s the use?
So I hit snooze
I pay my dues
I still might lose
But won’t be used
What’s the use?
Track Name: ghost pirate
Know I’m scared of nothing
As long as I have my ability
You say there’s no tomorrow
But I’m heading towards infinity
I found a place of shelter
Let’s go there before we drown
So take your pearls of wisdom
And bury them deep down

I can swim
I can swim
I can swim
I can swim
Away
In my mind
In my mind
In my mind
In my mind
Deranged

You say there’s no room for error
But I’m ready to explode
Destruction keeps my head cool
But I feel like a lethal does
I know there’s a reason
That these thoughts keep going down
I’ll say that I deserve this
Until that ghost comes back to town

I can swim
I can swim
I can swim
I can swim
Away
And my mind
And my mind
And my mind
And my mind
Deranged
I can feel
I can feel
I can feel
I can feel
The pain
In my mind
In my mind
In my mind
In my mind
Disdain

Guess it doesn’t matter
Anymore
Cuz I managed to make it
Back to shore
And it made my head spin
Twice before
But I won’t let it shake me
To the core

I can swim
I can swim
I can swim
I can swim
Away
In my mind
In my mind
In my mind
In my mind
Estranged
I can feel
I can feel
I can feel
I can feel
The pain
In my mind
In my mind
In my mind
In my mind
Disdain
Track Name: wet dreams
I can wait
Hesitate
For my mind to break
And my legs to shake

And I’m drenched in you
When your eyes seemed true
I know place and time
To pollute your mind

I can stay
And not fade away
And I send the pain
On down the drain

And I’m drenched in you
When your eyes seemed true
I know place and time
To uncross this mind

And before I knew
I was lost in you
I’m a parasite
Feeding off your mind

I can say
You’re my tidal wave
I feel the same
Once or twice a day

And I’m drenched in you
When your eyes seemed true
I know place and time
To uncross this mind
Track Name: hit the floor
Please just a little bit
Just a little more
Only just a little bit
Cuz my feet are getting sore
Please just a little bit
Just a little more
Please I need a little bit
Because I’m heading for the floor

It doesn’t matter
To me anymore
It doesn’t matter
Getting closer to the floor

Mmm just a little bit
Just a little more
Only just a little bit
To get up off the floor
Please I need a little bit
I am getting rather sore
Please I need a little bit and then a little more

It doesn’t matter
To me anymore
It doesn’t matter
Getting closer to the floor
It doesn’t matter
To me anymore
It doesn’t matter
Getting harder to ignore

It doesn’t matter
To me anymore
It doesn’t matter
Getting closer to the floor
It doesn’t matter
To me anymore
It doesn’t matter
Getting harder to ignore
Track Name: unglued
Were wasted
Our time spent
On nothing new
Encased in
The cement
We can’t break through

I just want to be like you
Forget everything I thought was true
Yeah Yeah

I’ve been thinking so psycho-social
All my time spent piss and moaning
Thought I might be off the deep end
But that all stopped when I was next to No one
I can’t help but feel distorted
Wrapped up tight
Feeling so secure
This whole life it’s been just a cycle
But now I’m starting to become unglued

We waited
Frustrated
But still can’t move
Now it’s here
And so clear
With you know who

I just want to be like you
Forget everything I thought was true
Yeah Yeah

I’ve been thinking so psycho-social
All my time spent piss and moaning
Thought I might be off the deep end
But that all stopped when I was next to No one
I can’t help but feel distorted
Wrapped up tight
Feeling so secure
This whole life it’s been just a cycle
But now I’m starting to become unglued

I thought I was going somewhere
Turns out that that place is nowhere
I thought I was going somewhere
Turns out that that place is nowhere
I thought I was going somewhere
Turns out that that place is nowhere
I thought I was going somewhere
I just want to be right next to you
Yeah Yeah Yeah

I’ve been thinking so psycho-social
All my time spent piss and moaning
Thought I might be off the deep end
But that all stopped when I was next to No one
I can’t help but feel distorted
Wrapped up tight
Feeling so secure
This whole life it’s been just a cycle
But now I’m starting to become unglued
Track Name: shell shocked (break the shell)
Medicate with meditation
Erase what’s on your mind
Comtemplating contemplations
Leave them all behind
And I wanted just to know it
Now it’s all I’ve known
There’s no way I can outgrow
It’s following me home

And it’s suffocating bleeding through these spaces in my time
It’s getting harder picking up the pieces Cuz I can’t find my mind

And I wanted to
Break this shell
But don’t know just where I want to go
What I want to do
Break this shell
I can’t fight this alone

I’m just starting getting ready
For the big withdrawal
I’ll just try to hold it steady
But I’m bouncing off the walls
I won’t steal you
I’m too dumb too
See you’re someone else
I just want to
Get to know you
But you put me on the shelf

And it’s suffocating bleeding through these spaces in my time
It’s getting harder picking up the pieces Cuz I can’t find my mind

And I wanted to
Break this shell
But don’t know just where I want to go
What I want to do
Break this shell
I can’t fight this alone
And I wanted to
Break this shell
But don’t know just where I want to go
What I want to do
Break this shell
I can’t fight this alone

And it started
Departed
I do not care about it anymore
Made something
Out of nothing
I feel my wear when I’m at home
You waited
Mistaken
It was not here and never was
And now I’m
So tongue tied
I sit and wait for your return
Track Name: dreadnought
At the party
Drink Bacardi
Have another beer
And the dreadnought
Ties the slipknot
He is made of fear

Hell no
Your mind control
It mutilates my soul
I find my
Peace of mind
Somewhere far away from home

What I wanted to say was less than words

It gets costly
When I get saucy
Think of words to say
Yes I can be
Nice as candy
Without the tooth decay

Hell no
My mind explodes
It mutilates my soul
I find my
Peace of mind
Somewhere far beneath this road

What I wanted to say was less than words

At the party
Getting naughty
Take me away from here
And the dreadnought
Makes the fear rot
Leaves a trail of tears

Hell no
Your mind control
It mutilates my soul
I find my
Peace of mind
Somewhere far away from home
Hell no
My mind explodes
It mutilates my soul
I find my
Peace of mind
Somewhere far beneath this road
Hell no
Your mind control
It mutilates my soul
I find my
Peace of mind
Somewhere far away from home

What I wanted to say was less than words
Track Name: headache
I can let it stew
Find more things to do
Have a fever dream
There’s nothing stopping me

Hey
You’re my headache

Crushed by trains of thought
Forgotten what I lost
Now I’m so confused
Cuz I’m dumb and feeling used

Lost in apathy
Look what it has done to me
So come and waste some time
But you can’t control my mind

Hey
You’re my headache
Track Name: stormcrow
Make it or break it
My mind can’t escape it
Thinking that I might be torn
Lies cannot outlast
The spirit of the outcast
Who rides out the coming storm

I don’t care
That nothing’s fair
I can just write this off

And it shreds me
Goes right through me
It won’t let go
Impassive cruelty

Sooner or later
You’ll learn to negate her
But then again you’re never wrong

Better off without this
Should’ve never doubted
Should’ve never thought at all

I don’t care
That nothing’s fair
I can just write this off

And it shreds me
Goes right through me
It won’t let go
Impassive cruelty
And it shreds me
Goes right through me
It won’t let go
Impassive cruelty

I don’t care
That nothing’s fair
I can just write this off

And it shreds me
Goes right through me
It won’t let go
Impassive cruelty
Track Name: slipstream
Break through the ceiling and be free again
And do away with what’s not needed
Destroyed the weights that kept her mind down
Had to survive on hopes and dreaming

Fall apart at the seams
I keep on picking up steam
Let it slip away
I know it’s still incomplete
But I can find what I need
Let it slip away

And I know what I’m chasing after
To find another brand new thought
And I’ll keep searching for disaster
To take me back to the stars

Fall apart at the seams
I keep on picking up steam
Let it slip away
I know it’s still incomplete
But I can find what I need
Let it slip away

My suggestion
Is that you question
Everything you see
I’m so sorry
It gets so boring
Losing what I need
