Track Name: Aftermath Reaction
Stop me before,
if only we knew what it felt like to live once more
(what just happened, the end just happened
i read the caption and designed a new fashion
the end of the world a brand new reckoning
i admit i was irrational)
poetic promise in my words
this is not just to get a reaction

(greed will swallow your eyes
and rape your senses)
allowing truth to be erases
but your mind never lets go
we never let go...

(building pyramids on collosal grids
it's not that serious
i know why i'm losing my mind,
{society is blind})

we never let go

(you can walk out the back door,
but no one will ever know you were here)

i'm coming home just to end the world
saving everyone except for the girl
maybe than they'll listen, maybe then they'll listen
(if i could sing, i'd write you a thousand songs
i tried to smile but my lips were cracked
i hope you can see beyond these teeth
i hope you can see beyond my teeth)

its like i'm burning just to come clean
i still don't know what you need
and i still don't know what you need
(life's a conspriacy, forget the point that i was making)
pride crawls through my veins,
circulating in the black rain
(thanks for putting words in my mouth
there's a guy melting into his couch)
it's like i'm burning just to come clean
and i still don't know what you need
i still don't know what you need
(life's a conspiracy, forget the point that i was making)
pride crawls through my veins
circulating in the black rain
(it's not obtuse, its cute
weery leary, you're so dreamy)

{Evan is the walrus}

let's toast to the lasers baby

(billboards for every lie
a catch for every truth
our minds are controlled by promises that never hold their weight
weilding the wildabeast
having a grand ole feast
i am a stone man
in a hot iron chair
tv help me not to care
lets set sail over the mountain
and down the fountain)

remove the lines across your face
i'm coming home just to save the girl (save the girl)
after everythings gone we'll still remain
Track Name: Combat Wombat
(Do you believe in grasshoppers?
yea, i tend to thank narcolepsy
like a cocktail charade)
For sure we can sling this
I'm crystal clear
Never more with the we're
I'm the one to fear
(or a beauty pagent escapade
not another flight delay
no wonder you are getting paid
reverse psychologhy,
Reaction!
my o my this is satisfaction)

Just keep this between us
I've never been so cold without you

(here's a how to acupuncture
my arms are floating and i'm not even driving
pick a card it's like deep sea diving
lets smash, car crash, dash for the hash
pick the lock tick tock the earth is leaning)
I'm the story untold
The fortunes sold
You'll never understand why I'm so cold
(riddle me this i have to crack this
riddle me this i have to crack this)

(We're crashing parties for new shoes
scratching velvet with white cues
feel the pressure, lie your way out
erase their faces leaving no doubt
pour me a cup from your new spout
trace it all back to the stolen amount)

I can see it, let us be it
We're the one and only
I can feel it let me be it
I'm the one and only

(i'm the calling the shots now!)
{WHO'S CALLING THE SHOTS NOW?}
(joking about police reports
hidden in plain view
dumping bodies isn't that strange
dinner for two and change
caught in between...)
Erasing these minds
Trying to properly define, why I am the way I am
And it's getting to late
To escape, it's done it's sold
The faded words that were never told

i don't know about all this
But we can escape and get away
But we can escape and get away and get half way
And I don't know about all that
But girl, we'll fly time and we're buying high
I don't know about all that…
But we can escape and get away from all of this…
Track Name: Perry Thrust Combo
Where were you when i was bleeding?
We're going back to when things were original
two steps forward,
we're three steps back losing faith as we walk into the light
But this world never changes, this world never changes
But forgetting is the last thing i remember

{the world is out of sight, approaching the greatest vebs with hindsight}

Dividing poetry, reading every word as if it has a cure
tonight we mask our fears
trading morals for this composure
(Rewind the film of time i'm giving a sign
it's emotion i use as an antidote
building structure, upon strusture)

Bright lights and sex in our beds
keeping this beneath the sheets
this feeling is oh so captivating
(yes sir, yes sir i concur
flip the coin we chose to defur
i'm the cannibal you're the animal
let's set the example, plain and simple)
you see more when your eyes are open
exposure decieves our composure

(let me disgust myself, only i know what this means
if only you knew the pictures i drew
here goes the first drink
i'm a headcase order the shrink
creating my allibi link by link
i'm a writer, what else did you think?)

Guest Vocals Ted Schantz
{opening doors in the dark
as i try and hold in the light
it's crawling somewhere, where only my mind can identify}

lost in thought as smoke fills the room
touching your skin, but i can't be felt
in the spotlight we're all exposed
all of these questions and none of them answered

(Bartender, a shot of epiphany
i'm hitting my targets with lethal efficiency) X2
We're hoping, the next door will lead us there {Seth and Ted Schantz}

(We chew our skin down to the nerve
just to know we're alive
this is a different breed of man, we couldn't clone even if we wanted to
Stay back i'm contagious, can't you hear the cynacism in my voice?
I thought it was midnight, but it's 6AM)
Track Name: Threat Level Midnight
(Born on third, but thought you hit a triple
work on your grammar like past participle
read through tabloids for answers
keep on smoking that cancer
high like "Lucy in the Sky"
I think this ink has run dry
take a swim in the Big Dipper
I swear i saw a hand in the wood chipper)

Why are we running?
Just one more drink, and i can feel it moving
my voice is so soothing

I changed the game for you
you never knew how much i bled for you
I changed the game for you
singing words i could never say
I changed the game for you

Separating conciousness, from what is real
solving thoughts on how to feel

{I'm sorry i put pizza on your Grandma's picture
It's cool man cause i broke your light fixture
I lost my mind 10 miles ago
Just thought you oughta know...}
DON'T TASE ME BRO!!!

(Frost bite on my fingers
parasites in my blood
your dad is taking hits at the waitress
while your mom is on her knees)

Alive to the idea, that we were invinceable
and i'm capable, but i feel so suceptible
moving through these lines we cross
but you always said you loved me first
you said you loved me first
(I read minds like i'm hooked on phonics
flying by like i'm super sonic
watch out for those culture vultures
what's with the theme of these skyscrapers
Sympathy is a dish best served cold
I don't elaborate on things in the fold
what do you say when no one is listening?
I don't know, but you wear the disguise
flying by like we're super sonic
demonic tonic, we are electronic
judging by the name on our collars
notching bedposts and burning corners
protagonist, antagonist
is it me or is it you?)

I changed the game for you
I never knew how much i bled for you
I changed the game for you
singing words i could never say
I changed the game for you
I changed the game for you
(I'm so conflicted, I'm so addicted)
Track Name: Elliot
I've been let down, let go
but i've never felt like this before
(Don't act surprised you sold your sould)
but little girl
i'm so lost without you
tripping over ourselves, just to try and keep everyone happy
this is it i swear, i don't what the ends like
but i'm not prepared

(I'm the conductor, Railroad conductor
sneak through the stalks of corn
run until your clothes are torn
space monkeys are our slaves
nice girls don't always behave
swallow the key to the safe
i love how brass tastes)
leave the story to the rest
can we keep this until the morning?
it's not easy to admit your wrong
but i'm changing now, changing now

(Thread the needle with such finesse
I'm OCD I may obsess)
one...
(make the next left turn, beauty makes the skin burn)
One Love
(add fame by sense subtraction, and I'm gone!)
One Love
(forget the papers their bound to staple, you forgot to write)

learning to recite your questions no more
i'm proposing something new
we can make this last
we can make the best of this love

{Hey man this is out of sight
It's like a birthday cake delight X2}

I'm numb like cortizone
I'm singing lasers and i'm so in the zone

(The breadwinner seeks the highest lark
it's time for me to escape the lies of this narc
everything rhymes in the dark
this flame is dying it needs a spark)
Track Name: Horizontical
(This is the end they'll swallow their egos
My body is a thousand spaceships influenced by momentum
I'll drink down your water and eat all your tapestry
Life lessons are watching birds murder worms
We want it all! We want it Now!
the burning in your stomach is the FEAR OF GOD
I get a burst of energy in crowded rooms
My mind is melting like poetic justice for you)

After this you'll remember me, frame this moment
never let it go (never let it go)
I love the burn before the cure
speak softly, let your words be heard (let your words be heard)
let your words be heard

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH (subliminal message) HAHAHAHAHA

Keeping minds open, we're letting it all in
but there's just one answer
THIS IS LASERS.....

(The lasers scream out prodigy
everyone is looking up at me
climb to the summit with legs that are tall
we'll watch as these false idols fall)

All we were was a blank stare, you weren't there
guarding ourselves, guarding ourselves

{In the world i see, we are stalking elk through deep canyon forests around the ruins of the Rockefellar Center. We will wear leather clothes that will last you the rest of your life. We'll climb the wrist thick Kudzu vines, that wrap the Sears Tower. And when you look down you'll see tiny figures pounding corn and laying strips of vinison. On the empty car pool lanes of some abandon super highway.}

(It's a lot like fear when your trapped)
you'll never understand
(foroding impulses of insects)
I've lost all respect
(Like teremites choking on splinters)

This isn't for you, I don't know what you conclude
there's always something and never nothing
This isn't for you, I don't know what you conclude
there's always something and never nothing
and i still don't know who you are

(Seering holes in our brains, what's stranger is i'm in danger
of self implosion, mind erosion)
i still don't know who you are
(Seering holes in our brains, what's stranger is i'm in danger
of self implosion, mind erosion)
you wear the disguise, you wear the disguise

(The lasers scream our prodigy!
everyone is looking up at me
climb to the summit, with legs that are tall
watch as these false idols fall)

All we were was a blank stare, you weren't there
guarding ourselves, guarding ourselves
All we were was a blank stare, you weren't there
guarding ourselves, guarding ourselves
(Guarding ourselves, guarding ourselves)
All we were was a blank stare, you weren't there
guarding ourselves, guarding ourselves
(The lasers scream out prodigy!
everyone is looking up at me
climb to the summit with legs that are tall
watch as these false idols fall)
