Not Alright 01:38
I stand on a side street I try to get a view I wonder what the insane man is going to try to do Don’t imagine what’s going on in his mind Can’t figure it out without losing my own I reach out with laser beams don’t want to burn my eyes Reach for the sky I steal your wine I’m back on a main street feeling alright Something’s missing things are different and I’m not alright
2.
delay of silence I'm waiting to hear nothing
3.
I could never rule the world It’s not for me to do I could never rule the world without you I can’t do it on my own Too much to deal with all alone Even if I ruled the world and no one can There’d be too much suffering I would have to see I would need you here with me Too much suffering for me to see alone
4.
Driving over the avalanche I can see the debris I’m not crying about the milk on the ground in front of me The streets are empty not like my brain I can’t turn it off to bring in the rain Driving over the avalanche By the side of the road It’s hard to imagine the hill coming down on us
5.
I pity the time I state my mind eraser blades cut through as clearly as we like erasing the truth there’s nothing left but lies life seems to fly right out of line

No Balloons 01:54
no balloons I don’t want balloons on my birthday or when I’m sick I want no balloons they freak me out they sizzle in the power grid and cut the power out no balloons I told you I warned you I don’t want balloons they freak me out on my birthday or when I’m hurt I want no balloons no balloons no balloons I know it’s the thought that counts but I want no balloons send me a card from somewhere you have never been and I will thank you just the same no balloons

Take My Time 02:16
Whatever I do I'm gonna take my time the only thing that's mine gonna take my time I can walk no need to run so I take my time in the daytime running at night I've gotta find my way in the daytime running at night I do what I want gonna take my time the only thing that's mine gonna take my time in the daytime running running at night

Extinction 01:53

I can't find the keys to my car the ones to my mind are far away this won't harm me at all my soul is in the way gotta look around until everything is upside down and turned inside out when I find the key to my mind life would surely be a game if we don't find peace in our time that would be a shame

Doc's Block 01:19
Doc's block I found it in the corner Doc's block I saw it at the movies how does it move around?
11.
shapeshifting lions at the zoo you were there I know you saw them too they're getting ready to fly away see them changing to their normal state shapeshifting lions at the zoo
12.
I tell myself to live in ordinary times we never know when that would be when time stands still I'd like to find myself in ordinary times if we find it, we'll keep it and make time stand still I want to live in ordinary times we never know when that would be I might be bored in ordinary times when time stands still

Wicked Stew 00:57
everybody is cooking up a wicked stew like there's nothing but evil to do everywhere I go it's become the rule that there's nothing but evil to do we wish it would go away knowing that won't be enough everybody is cooking up a wicked stew like there's nothing but evil to do

Hiding 01:50
you wanted me to take your survey said I'd be glad to tomorrow under the radar's how I fly don't ask me why sometimes I'm hiding there's too much static in the air you can't blame me for hiding under the radar's how I fly don't ask me why maybe I'm hiding
