Track Name: Dementia in Three Dimensions
A crowded room
A moment’s doubt
A fleeting glimpse
I am without

All that I do
Is think of you
All I can prove
Is that I’ve been so fucked up

I’ll play it nice
Cause love is not for free
It’s my own device
Sweet slice of dull humanity

All I can do
Is wait for you
I wish for that
But still get this

Get this
Getting kissed
By my own indecision
Track Name: Sinking or Standing
I get up
I go to work
I’m wearing smiles
A cup of coffee gives me the nerve

Then I’ll get home
A stepping stone
I’d feel alive but I live alone

And he’s acid fried
She’s on a diet
We're getting along not so well

No one loved me quite like you
No one hates me like I do
I played the longing game too long
Now it’s catching on

I’m only sinking where I stand

Now I
Can feel the break
It’s gonna take
Not sure how much longer I can fake

My every move
I’m singing mute
It’s right on time but overdue

I’m feeling able
She’s standing stable
We’re getting along not so well

I don’t question this existence
But will the answer make a difference
I played the longing game too long
Now it’s catching on

I’m only sinking where I stand

Don’t repeat the words and haven’t-you-heard’s
It’s all that there seems to be
If everything is easy then why do you make it so difficult?

Don’t fall back in line
While calling on mind’s to speak
Only for ears oblique
If everything is simple then why do you make it so typical?

I’m only sinking where I stand
It’s only where I stand
Track Name: Melodic Death Jam
Is this a summer song?
I'm cracking up craving hard
Just kick me right up to speed
A manic who wants it all

Is this a summer song?
I'm lying not even close
Just one more for the road
A hobby of feeling numb

Just cut me open to see that
I've got no soul.

Well how's it even possible?
It serves me right, a hit right close to home
My eyes are an act of thought
(My head held high I just might get by)
And every time my eyes give it all away.
(I can't quite say that it's a habit yet)
Track Name: I Could Be Your Pet
What can I say
Good company
Is a rarity for me when I’m away
And I don’t want to lose that yet

We can meet in secret rooms
Share a moment’s afternoon
So it could feel like it did when we first met

I’ll be your nurse
Or the reverse
Either way it’s safe to say I’ll get there first

I could even be your pet
Put a collar ‘round my neck

It might not be ideal but it could work
I could learn new tricks if we get bored
If getting back to you is my only chore
Then everyday would feel like it was just another Sunday morning.

What can I say
Good company
Is a rarity for me when I’m away
And I don’t want to lose that yet

We can meet in secret rooms
Share a moment’s afternoon
So it could feel like it did when we first met

I’ll be your nurse
Or the reverse
Either way it’s safe to say I’ll get there first

I could even be your pet
Put a collar ‘round my neck
Cause I don’t want to lose you yet
I could even be your pet
Track Name: Mugshot in Princeton
Tell me something that I want to hear
Why the finest pump us all with fear
Cause I know something's terribly wrong

Sitting high in their angelic towers
Exchanging reasons for absolute power
And I hope that this doesn't last long

Peasants arrested just for doing favors
Corruption will cease will the arriving savior
Oh when
Could it be me?

Ready for the weekend it goes on and on
The trials of my life in song
But I can't judge a thing, I'm just as phony

Take another drag put all your dreams inside
a paper bag and seal the seams
One step two step and you're looking to score
When out from the bushes comes a shining star.

Why's it me, you spineless twit, is it because
I'm young and self-assured like you used to be?
But I'm so close, I'm only four feet from my trunk
All the time that I got left is just a month.
But they'll take you away, they'll take you away
Tonight's been cut off short by a pig in drag.
Track Name: Happy Medium
Started with an earnest escape
The ignition was running I was yearning for change
I’ve gotten sick on this place
Choked on these stale remains

Nothing seems permanent
So I could never understand what it was you meant
When you said things would always be this way
And I had no say

If I could find a happy medium
I’d have a hint at what I should be

Half drunk on ideals done
The type of morals wasted on the young
Always too wasted to comply
Even though we all tried

Started with an honest mistake
I was hung over on what my stomach could take
You were already hanging up on it
You were ready to quit

Nothing seems relevant
So I could never understand what it was you meant
When you said it was these moments that could count
And mine just wouldn’t amount

If I could find a happy medium
I’d have a hint at what I should be

Half drunk on ideals done
The type of morals wasted on the young
Always too wasted to comply
Even though we all tried

But there was never anybody to blame
In the end it was always very easy to tame
We’re all just living for today
Though you may think it a shame

Cause I was yearning for change
I was yearning for change
I was yearning for change
