Track Name: Take Another Way
move it forward, don't look back
love and thought are tested true
something was, what we now lack
found a sense of what to do

love and thought are tested true
all's forgot of what was known
with our new found sense of what to do
up so high look how we've grown

dripping with the consequence of what was chose
us and them all enclosed, us and them, fully clothed

looking for the one right way
oh maybe, maybe we could
take another way now
move a step side ways
look in a different direction
Track Name: Teeth
all of these times
I have fallen short
of all of what I wished I could be

all of these tries
I have pushed and pushed
but never really planted the seed

So here I lie
stuck on my back
with only what is given to me

so quiet
proper and polite

I've been so afraid of tasting blood I filed away all my teeth
and I was so ashamed of what I saw I let my mind grow weak
Outside I can hear the drone of a million marching feet
Inside I can feel the pulse of a billion hearts that beat

life in the fire
I can bend and flex
into whatever shape I must be

Up here so high
loving the view
but boy I don't think that I can breath

all of us lie
and then do our best
to make it seem like we at least tried

I’ll shut my eyes
and hope for the best

I've been so afraid of tasting blood I filed away all my teeth
and I was so ashamed of what I saw I let my mind grow weak
Outside I can hear the drone of a million marching feet
Inside I can feel the pulse of a billion hearts that beat
Track Name: The Climb
Its easy for my head to get stuck on the climb
Tick tock tick tock there’s just never enough time
I shouldn't be this way though I feel that I must
constantly pushing, constant pulling, constant worry, constant lust

Ive been watching myself drown
Head under water
Feet up in the air

It must be now cause I am feeling sentimental
the love is lost and it seems like it is consequential
well look at us don’t it seem like we all must be mental
cause I have lost what I had thought was fundamental

Ive been watching myself drown
Head under water
Feet up in the air
Ive been watching myself drown
Head under water
Feet up in the air

its easy in this world to fall too far behind
this thought, distraught, oh I just can't unwind
you know theres always a next time
well what if there is no next time
keep on pushing, keep on pulling, keep ripping me apart

I keep talking myself down
dead in the water
just to much to bear

well I must face facts this battle won't be gentle
but what is lost, when what is lost is only mental
these rungs I've climbed, left walls so high, I might just tumble
or give it up, that’s far enough, not worth the struggle

I keep talking myself down
dead in the water
just to much to bear
I keep talking myself down
dead in the water
just to much to bear
Track Name: Dusty Corners
in the dusty corners
of my head
are the old stories
I never read

some of love some of loss
some of fear some of next and
some of now and then

catalogue of my brain
of my mind
shows the times
and how I’ve fallen in

Lost my head in those days
lookin’ back on old ways
I’ve considered every just in case
in the case that this place
falls through a rift in time and space
I know I’ll remember your face
I know I’ll remember your face

in the haunted hallways
of my heart
are the old stories
I never read

some of love some of loss
some of fear some of next and
some of now and then

catalogue of my brain
of my mind
shows the times
and how I’ve fallen in

Lost my head in those days
lookin’ back on old ways
I’ve considered every just in case
in the case that this place
falls through a rift in time and space
I know I’ll remember your face
I know I’ll remember your face
Track Name: Automatic
A buzzer sounds the day begins
another day just like the one that came before
the simple life, all laid out for us
every single decision has been decided
our lives are lived for us, for us, for us
for us
just keep doin’ what your told
::pre chorus::
glowing screens give me directions
what to do where to turn and how to feel

::chorus::

A city vast stretches out and up
A city vast stretches out and up
out and up

A clock ticks around in a circle
A clock ticks around in a circle

its syncronized its automatic
its syncronized its automatic
its syncronized its automatic

::verse two::

I, I got the word
from higher up
an understanding
I understand
an obligation, I must uphold
no need, no need, no need
to question or second guess
I always do what I’m told

::chorus::

A city vast stretches out and up
A city vast stretches out and up
out and up

A clock ticks around in a circle
A clock ticks around in a circle

its syncronized its automatic
its syncronized its automatic
its syncronized its automatic
Track Name: Office Building
I work in a great big office building
it's a hierarchy in which I am employed
team work and community building
shows us we can do it we can learn how to do it
three walls and touch screen computer
man I’ve got it all see I'm all plugged in
keep up the good work your doing great
another six months a quarter raise

I just got my degree I'm a college graduate
sign my name on the line an show me where to sit
I got people below I got people above me
on my way to the top to the top yeah

I'm a part of this great big system
I'm a part of it yes I am
oh the building it has ten stories
security at the gate and circulated air
I'm a part of this, part of this
great big system
I'm a part of it yes I am

my food comes from a vending machine
its wrapped in plastic plastic I don't know where it grows
branded beverages bubble through my veins into my brain
sweeten the monotony increase my productivity
a great promotion my desk is now upstairs
important people contact me regarding company
affairs
they call me mister now some call me sir

this is it, its what I worked so hard for
I have a great big house a pretty wife
work all weekend work all night
make a fortune no end in sight
buy more get more buy more get more stuff

I'm a part of this great big system
I'm a part of it yes I am
oh the building it has ten stories
security at the gate and circulated air
I'm a part of this, part of this
great big system
I'm a part of it yes I am
Track Name: Hunger Pains
I'm lookin' for a question
You're askin' me the answer
our minds are running around
with our heads

::chorus::
our bellies are full of plastic parts
grocery carts and other things that fall apart
our minds are fine not of the immortal kind
but sometimes we seem pretty smart

this time
we've come to far

this place is
graceless
defaced and
were faceless
its so hard to take this
the truth is we made this

::chorus::
our bellies are full of plastic parts
grocery carts and other things that fall apart
our bones are fragile brittle and easily rattled
we could never do this on our own

they'll tell stories they'll tell stories about us
they'll tell stories they'll tell stories about us
they'll sing songs they'll sing songs about us
they'll sing songs they'll sing songs about us
Track Name: People
I was livin' in the ocean
I was swimin' with the fish
I was eatin' all the plankton
and they were livin' off of me

and the strange thing was
as far as the eye could see

there were no plastics

I was soarin' with the sea birds
I was livin so free
my belly was never hungry
man I was livin' well

and the strange thing was
as far as the eye could see

there were no people

I was livin' in the ocean
but this time there were no fish
yeah this time I was alone
and the water was getting warm

far to warm to bare

and the strange thing was
as far as I could see the only thing
reflected was me
Track Name: Fire
fire, fire over there
no water
we’ve no water to spare
fire, fire over there
not a drop not a drop
we’ve not a drop to spare

not ours
not ours to think of
somewhere else someone else
not ours to weep for
not ours
not ours to think of
somewhere else, someone else
not ours to weep for

::prechorus::
lets not forget how much it costs
lets not forget how much it costs

::chorus::
Deafened by the sound we make
someone else somewhere else
not to be troubled with
Losing to the day to day
the clock gets louder
while the time ticks faster
Track Name: Grown Tired
I’m tired
just tired of all of this now
I’m tired
of smiling through the clouds
I’m tired of thinking about
making sure all this works out
I’m tired of leaving just to find out
this isn’t the place for me

I’m lost
got lost in the swirl of the crowd
I’ve lost
lost sight in what,
in what it’s about
I’ve lost myself in the flame of the fire
and now it’s burned out
I’v lost my way
and now I find out
there isn’t a place for me
