Track Name: Semblance of a Sound
Why do I resemble
a laboratory rat unnamed?
Built and borrowed,
a landmine, faltered...

oohhhh, ahhhhhh...

Why do I inhabit,
this habitat I did not build?
Cold and lawless,
a horse farm, traveled...

oohhh, ahhhh...

And I would imagine,
what I could say to bring you home...

Perhaps I can trust my memories after all...
Track Name: Over the Noise
Listen here, I'll tell ya what to do,
and later on what to say
I do this out of love,
don't want ya to feel uncomfortable.


How is it that what we need is often what we lack?


Get down here,
don't want ya to hurt yourself.
Just, stay down here.
It really ain't so bad.

It's not so bad, it's not so bad.


How is it that what we need is often what we lack?
-I could not hear you, over the noise.

How is it that what we need is often what we lack?
-I could not hear you, over the noise.
Track Name: Trinity Flux
Yeaheaehah

I've been around for too long,
I can't even tell the meaning of my
my favorite song

I can't see with all the lights gone,
as the music passes through me.

At night I go between the breath,
I can't even say the things I wish I would'have
to incur this debt

And all I know was born of past lives,
using words and sayings I did not create.


It's the Trinity Flux
It's the Trinity Flux
It's the Trinity Flux theory!


Yeaheaehah

They try to teach what can't be taught,
they try to sell what can't be,
can't be sold or bought

All the things we do to believe what we want,
the goal has made us crazy and our soul is lost.


It's the Trinity Flux
It's the Trinity Flux
It's the Trinity Flux theory!


(unintelligible blather that may have to do with Billy Bob Thornton.)
Track Name: The Caramel Aesthetic
The caramel aesthetic,
the start of something new.
The caramel aesthetic,
What to do if I can't even choose?

When I broke through to what I though was the truth,
it begged the question:
What to do, what to do, what to do with myself,
if I can't even choose Barbara Sanders?!


The secret reptilian, psychopathic force,
The secret reptilian, psychopathic force,
Their freaking mid-brains don't even work right,
But they're still in charge.

The evolutionary bottleneck of society, bolsters right on me!

I've been a slave for more than most of my life,
but now I've seen how they being, how they give me the blues
And I can't even choose,
by the bastards!!


The secret reptilian, psychopathic force,
The secret reptilian, psychopathic force,
Their freaking mid-brains don't even work right,
But they're still in charge.

The Bilderberg players of the monetary game,
The Bilderberg players of the monetary game,
Their economic fallacies are worthless,
But they're still in charge.

The evolutionary bottleneck of society, bolsters right on me!

The caramel aesthetic,
the start of something new.
The caramel aesthetic,
What to do if I can't even choose?

I had the choice not to choose,
but I couldn't decide, what to do was
right in front of my eyes, but I could barely see.
I'd been silenced, blinded by a gypsy breeze.

Still water in my veins,
things will never be the same again.
And I ventilate my overstanding of what it is...
Track Name: Breatharian Anthem
I'm tired of eatin and shittin and pissin
I don't wanna do it any more
It sucks!

The son of man once told me,
y'all can't never live on bread alone
Ever since the garden of eatin'
I've been tryin to fill this hole

It's like it never ends,
still try to fill it up
Sisyphus, my friend, I'm greetin
I'm tryin to push it up.

And then I met a man name Kirby
he claimed to never eat
said he lived on air and sunlight,
like a plant that nazarene'ed

I knew right then and there,
I had to give it up
I'm addicted to food and water!

I'm tired of eatin and shittin and pissin
I don't wanna do it any more
It sucks!

Eat!
Drink!
Eat!
Drink!
Track Name: Slave to Brain
I've seen weird places
I've seen the dives
holy mosely
aes sedai,
eyes that climb...

I've worn enough
of your body salt
your body salt was extra crispy and maintained.

And with disgust,
discussions reigned
with iron fists and hurricanes,
I'm not sure why I'm slave to brain
I'm not quite sure, I'm slave to brain.

I've worn enough
of your body salt
your body salt was extra crispy and maintained.
Track Name: Never Take Me
When I noticed I was here,
didn't think that I could bear the thought of you

Never take me,
I am just a single fish,
living wrickedley
among the seatry dish

vitamin d and scurvy
are never meant for me
bastardization of mystery!

Never take me
Please create me!

When I noticed I was here,
didn't think that I could bear the thought of you

Never take me,
I am just a willowed brat
smelling of frog,
inside your petri vat

petri's all the same
killing what you will,
don't even try to be!

Never take me
Undertake me,
Please create me!

When I noticed I was here,
didn't think that I could bear the thought of you

Never take me!
Track Name: All This Fine Debauchery
They like to talk at night
They like to talk at night
even though I made a .gif, I don't remember anyway
sometimes it don't feel right.

They lick the silver spoon
They lick the silver spoon
even thought they all drive cars I don't think they'll go too far
so much for the moon

Lights and Escalades
Lights and Escalades
you can ask to pretend and they'll still whip out their pens
one more last charade

All this fine debauchery is making me want to say
come back to me

Don't be alarmed now
I'm done pretending that what I've been is what I'll be.
I've been bought and I've been sold,
like a bath salt on a toe'(d)

don't know what I'll be.
Track Name: Jackass the Bistro
somebody once told me I was dumb,
but I could'nt comprehend what they meant by the asking
I didn't even know what to do,
internal recourse maximizes what I've been through

oh, buddy boy wants to play

somebody once told me what to say,
but I didn't understand what they meant by the saying
apologize for what I am not,
screaming a banshee shrieks as it rips through the tough spot

oh, buddy boy wants to play

solitude or misdirection
mastery or self deception
eagle eyes are feeling senseless

state-body tells you what you can do
sell me your soul, relinquish control and they'll free you
but mandated freedom's what you will get,
sell me your soul, relinquish control and you'll get debt

oh, buddy boy wants to play
don't be nice,
the bistro is a jackass!
Track Name: Completely Unrealized (yah yah)
(yah yah)

see me, i've been
so realized and vain
and me, who's lived,
against your company

I see now, it's been me,
not just them
seems like I've been,
completely unrealized

I only see where I'm from
in time we'll know how,
it was that I came to be
unreal and untarnished
yet so believable...

seems like, seems like I've been
(yah yah)

But time it tells and time it sells
quarter lies.

Oh the younger, the lightning side
the elderly master sits and writes
oh, the kingdom, the astrolights,
the aftertaste of resurrection day

what is faith but surprise?
and what is belief but the shutting of the eyes?

(yah yah)

seems like i've been completely unrealized.
Track Name: New Sound from the Frozen Denizen
losing face,
claymation race,
you must be right
name in the lights

but what your saying
seems deeply misinformed.

like a story to my ears.

bored of the same,
stop motion game,
solar roadways,
would fix all the shame...

but what your saying
seems deeply misinformed
and what you claiming
is chronically forlorned
and what you selling
was built one day to break.

like a solvent in the air.
Track Name: Swallowed
there a house
a top a hill
where all the people
eat the flesh
of the memories they
try to hide
a place where instability
thrives and resides

come with me and
i'll show you where to go
where to lay your shoes
which door to enter through

come with me and
you shall see
but only if you trust enough
with your soul enough to fall

into the whole
of the earth
into the whole of existence


there's a man
with a gun
at the end of every
road your on
his aim is good
your talk cheap
cheaper than the air you breathe
while you sleep.

and this man
he's not your friend
he'll do everything he can
till you meet your end
and this man
he's the one to blame
for putting you into this place from whence you came

into the earth
into the whole
into the whole of existence
into the the whole
of the earth
into the whole of existence
Track Name: Through the Scanner
I see no end
no sacred or revealed
and through the scanner
the secrets shown appeal to lies

ohh, we've all appealed to lies

sitting by the english shore
I bleed a way for rain to come
while I sing
and singing songs the sunlit dream
the center brings me waves for me to learn

living like the wrinkled say
I secretly oppose that from which I speak
and lickinginlungsh the lampost do
I make sure why I'm here
cause I'm like a shark

I see no end,
no sacred or revealed
and through the scanner
1147 souls...

ohhh, we've all appealed to lies

blue base turret destroyed
I don't recall your name
but I'm sure it's nice
and talkingintoungues
the moone aligns
the center's why I'm here
I watch it break

my rebellious nature cures me after all
and I'm not sure that I'm human after all
cause I've been sleeping on the floor now
all along
my rebellious nature cures me
after all
Track Name: Ground (dredgin' down the drain)
you take my heart
and leave me open
to the earth
before I'm done

you take my ears
and whisper wonders
in my head
and then I'm done

simple world...


What appears to be dead,
is often most alive
the soil is a burial ground
and the corpses walk


you take my eyes
and bring me back to
what I've missed
it's been so long...

you take my hands
and wrap my fingers
around your waist, I
never knew

what they could do...


What appears to be dead,
is often most alive
the soil is a burial ground
and the corpses walk


see or hear no evil
dredgin down the drain,
I've been here since you were born
and since before the seasons came
how will you decide
which way to go?
drainin since the end of time
a millions ways a thousand whys

it's like I can't approach it
still not giving in
feeling solace, on the run
facing facts the midnight comes
bringing back the sunlit dream
the dramamine it gives me hell
I cant go back the freedom spell
has got me by the sinew now...
