Worms 03:55
Nestled in the trees Beneath the wired and the leaves There’s the city And nestled in their houses Making dinner with their spouses Are the people that the world never see And when they’re nestled in their beds They draw pictures in their heads Of images that make them feel at home ‘Cause no matter who they know They’re still living in their bodies all alone Nestled in my garden are the worms Squirming just beneath the surface They give all the things I throw away A brand new purpose And at times I stop and think That there’s a special part of me Nestled with them down there Oh, but the worms They just don’t seem to care I’m afraid we’re all just stuck In a special loop in time Where nothing ever changes But you and your mind And nothing’s worth the effort And it’s all just pretend And nothing really matters When you’re thinking ‘but the end Nestled in their coffins are the ones who have come and gone through And there’s only six feet of earth that separates them from you ‘Cause we’re all just taking turns Making friends with the worms There’s not much else we’re here to do But I’d still get some coffee in the park If you asked me to I’m afraid we’re all just stuck In a special loop in time Where nothing ever changes But you and your mind And nothing’s worth the effort And it’s all just pretend And nothing even matters When you’re thinking ‘bout the end

You were lost in soft elusive subtleties Of little thoughts that fill your mind with silly reasons To believe that everything is made for something But all around The world just keeps a turning with the sound Walk forward slowly and look around the bands And grasp the image freely You never know when everything is coming to an end You’re losing everything with your silence You’re losing everything with your voice In faded moments full of apathy Washed away without a choice Fall fearlessly with me Like you did once before And know the feeling lucidly Nowadays, I can't seem to feel it anymore Thinking ‘bout the way your mind is put together With all those loose ends untied All the things you thought would never last forever They linger stagnant by your side So you wander lost on a path of illusion Leaving your heart un-shown Ignoring thoughts and inducing confusion Because you don’t You don’t want to be alone To be alone, to be alone, to be alone Walk forward slowly And look around the bends And grasp the image freely You never know when everything is coming to an end

Medication 03:25
You need that medication to ease all those secrets burning on your tongue I see you checking corners trying to run away from everything you’ve done Lock the closet when you leave Lock the closet when you leave You saw their eyes in shadows as you crept along the dark and empty streets Acrid lies and sweat-soaked sighs through a damaged mind Seeping through your teeth Lock the closet when you leave Lock the closet when you leave Cold dreams scrape across your sense of clarity And you try so hard to hold on to that last piece of your sanity But, you were never really all that keen with Keeping track of all the little things So you let in slip so carelessly Let it fade so elusively Lock the closet when you leave Lock the closet when you leave Sleep tight through the agony Dream of all the things that you wish you’ve seen There may be light in what you’d rather do But there’d darkness stained inside of you Oh man you spent too long Staring at the sky waiting for light to come But even when the sun comes through You’ve got darkness stained inside of you Lock the closet when you Lock the closet when you Lock the closet when you leave

Windows 03:28
Watching through windows that I built behind my eyes I saw the colors that I longed to live through apathetic lies And spontaneous impulsions sprouted from the seeds Of directionless ambitions of whims I had to heed So don’t you Tell me that I’ve changed I haven’t lost my mind I’ve only lost my way A HA HA HA WOAOAOAOAOH A HA HA HA WOAOAOAAOAH I was reluctantly complicit when the air began to change And I sought to be explicit But was stuck in the mundane I was trapped inside a veil That blocked me from the rain Numb to all emotions Void of love and void of pain So don’t you Tell me that I’ve changed I haven’t lost my mind I’ve only lost my way A HA HA HA WOAOAOAOAOAH A HA HA HA WOAOAOAOAO Who’s that whistling at my pretty little window Staring in with sympathetic eyes NO! I don’t think so I said NO! I don’t think so I sad NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO I dont think so So, you say that everything is changed The sky has turned to grey and the people are deranged A HA HA HA WOAOOAOAOAO A HA HA HA WOAOAOAOAOA A HA HA HA WOAOAOAOAH AHAHAHAHA WOAOAOAOAOAH

Lemony 02:21
Lemony lemony lemony There’s too many too many too many There’s too many lemons In my pie The pie was lemony lemony lemony There’s too many too many too many Too many lemons in my pie In the chimney Jimeny told me You ought to be what you want to be Or you may as well be asleep Or cooking the amphetamines ‘cause Jimeny knows that amphetamines Are good for a hell of a lot of things Like clearing up the skies And cooking lemony pies Amphetamines phetamines phetamines Were taken by the anemones And the anemones gave the amphetamines To the enemy And it was lemony lemony lemony There’s too many too many too many Too many lemons in my pie The pie was lemony lemony lemony There’s too many too many too many Too many lemons in my pie Crimeny! Jimeny found me Crammed up in the chimney Must have been from all the yummy amphetamines He’d been a giving me And they were lemony oh so lemony They sunk right to the pit of me And I thought that he was shitting me When he brought up the possibility Of us finding the anemones To locate the enemy’s And reclaim our oh so precious abilities Of making our lemony pies just a bit less lemony There are too many lemons in my pie Lemony lemony lemony There’s too many too many too many There’s too many lemons in my pie The pie was lemony lemony lemony There’s too many too many too many Too many lemons in my pie.

I was flipping through my thoughts and I had a few That were shaped like They were shaped like you And there were slivers that I just couldn’t conceal Painted by colors of the way you made me feel I was perplexed by the ways that we had always acted And enveloped by the oxygen And I was distracted By the bugs crawling on the ground And people walking by Acting like everything is normal And nothing ever happens to them Oh Noooooo I wish that something would just happen to them And I spent some time Lying on the floor Pretending I was smaller than the smallest thing you’d ever seen before Smaller than a piece of dust But not quite microscopic Having trouble keeping still And staying on topic ‘Cause of bugs crawling on the ground And people walking by Acting like everything is normal And nothing ever happens to them Oh Noooooo I wish that something would just happen to them There was that time that you stopped by To play a tune and have a drink And there was something in your eye And you threw me a wink And for a sec I couldn’t tell if I was floating or a sinking And sometimes I wish that somebody Was watching what I think I think I think too much about what people think that I am thinking And the music gets a loud and people start a-drinking And I lose my sense of time and my breath falls out of sync ‘Cause nobody could ever be watching what you think I think that I am all alone In the only body that I own I think that I am all alone In the only body that I know I kept track of all the flaws Yes, I tried to count them all But there was something beautiful in every ugly thing I saw Ugly feelings in your eye And ugly people walking by Acting like everything is normal And nothing ever happens to them Oh Nooooo I wish that something would just happen to them

We’re all just sitting counting rice With the blood in the bottle tainted with spice We’re all just trying to shoot the moon Giving everything we’ve got but that’s just peas and a spoon We’re running in circles but we live within lines We put ourselves in boxes when the air is just fine We’re digging down to the earth to find the sky We’re always asking when but never why ‘Cause we’re all just sitting counting rice With the blood in the bottle tainted with spice We’re all just trying to shoot the moon Using everything we’ve got but that’s just peas and a spoon The sink is broken so we’ll have to use the hose The sickness is still here but the water still flows The world still works it’s copacetic We’re losing blood but don’t need a metic ‘Cause we’re all just sitting counting rice With the blood in the bottle tainted with spice We’re all just trying to shoot the moon Using everything we’ve got but that’s just peas and a spoon We bath in the sun but we’re afraid of the light We’re building ourselves bombs to avoid the fight We’re sitting in our boxes pretending that it’s good Denying everything just like we should ‘Cause we’re all just sitting counting rice With the blood in the bottle tainted with spice We’re all just trying to shoot the moon Using everything we’ve got but that’s just peas and a spoon

Optimism 07:06
Lonely we fall To face the uncertainty of it all We’re swimming in the dark And I see that you’re frowning At the shadows in the air But I want to sit and love The darkness that is there So close your eyes And fall asleep Let your conscience feel the light That resides in you so deep I realize the walls Are crumbling to the ground And I don’t need your heavy eyes Staring me down Spring time’s not coming There’s no laughter in the breeze And I can feel the terror that comes with life Shaking in my knees But can’t you taste that sweetness In the cold bitter night Things may be changing But I think that they’ll be alright So close your eyes And fall asleep Let your conscience feel the light That resides in you so deep I realize the walls Are crumbling to the ground And I don’t need your heavy eyes Staring me down

17 Sirens 04:17
It’s presence was stained on the walls 17 sirens and pieces from them all Subtle impressions of shapes on the bed Silent as the thoughts floating ‘round in your head And the sweat soaked down to the ground But your secrets, they don’t make a sound And the presence was stained on the walls 17 sirens and pieces from them all They were leaving with flowers in their hair 17 roses for every one that was there And the perfumes that lingered in the sheets Reeked of longing, oh so bittersweet He wanted them all for his own Not another pair of eyes to which they’d be shown And the presence was stained on the walls 17 sirens and pieces from them all The room reeked of fading pheromones Red cheeks gone white Chilled to the bone Legs Lying loosely All across the floor 17 hearts that aren’t beating anymore And he gazed across the skyline Fell like a feather Left the world behind And the presence was stained on the walls 17 sirens and pieces from them all

If there was something I could let you know About the itty bitty spaces in between the pipes below the sink where all the little dreams that used to live inside your head seep out of your ears and make their way into their beds Where they sleep and they dream little dreams of their own And forget about the empty shell that used to be their home I watch you laugh every day At the pieces of your head as they slowly slip away And I find it kinda strange that you find it kinda funny 'Cause your body's something more Than just the thoughts you have with in it, honey Counting foot steps that you left in the corners of your head Can't help but hope that they will lead you To the things that were once said About the broken little parts of you That left you so mislead But it's dark in the crevices up there And you can't seem to find them anywhere And it's hopeless with out the sun I guess you'll just have to wait Until the morning... Your thoughts fall like stones like the words that you say And they're cold like the face of the statue you portray and there is nothing in your voice and there is nothing in your eyes Is there nothing in your heart 'Is it all a big disguise 'Cause I don't know No, I don't know No, I don't know what you want No, I don't know No, I don't know No, I don't know what you want I often find myself thinking 'bout itty bitty spaces In the strangest most unassuming kind of places And there are so many things and they are really all quite small And even if you tried You couldn't count them all So I don't care No, I don't care No, I don't care what you want No, I don't care No, I don't care No, I don't care what you want

I had a dream just before dawn About a big ‘ol weed growing in my lawn What it meant to me So effortlessly Some thing are ‘cause they’ve got nothing else to be And I though of you and if you’re doing well Or feeling sorry for your poor little self And all the things that you wish you were that you’re not And all the thoughts that you have when nobody’s watching You gotta get a better hold Of whatever you’re riding on Gotta get out what’s in your head Before what’s in your head is gone And it can be hard to find a thing Amidst the rubble and the chatter And nobody will be listening But it doesn’t really matter Doesn’t matter Nobody knows what nobody sees About what nobody said and nobody means And nobody’s aware when it’s all coming down And nobody cares when nobody’s around And it can be weird when you try and compute A hundred lonely years in a skin suit But there are things you can do to make it all more familiar When everything that you know gets a little to peculiar You gotta get a better hold Of what ever you’re writing on Gotta get out what’s in your head Before what’s in your head is gone And it can be hard to find a thing Amidst the rubble and the chatter And nobody will be listening But it doesn’t really matter Doesn’t matter Well I’ve just been sitting on top of the roof Thinking about the things that you think about When you’re sitting on top of the roof And there are more than a million ways To spend the seconds in your days More than a billion things to say about the ways You seen the seconds in your days And you said It’s amazing how much time we spend Just sitting in our heads And I said If things had gone differently We might already be dead So Get a better hold of whatever your’e riding on Gotta get out what’s in your head Before what’s in your head is gone And it can be hard to find a thing Amidst the rubble and the chatter And nobody will be listening but it doesn’t really matter Doesn’t matter
