Why? ... 02:13
Why be normal? We can be weird Why go to the limit? We can step back Why lie in the mirror? I look out the window I can see shadows lurking out there Why go to church? We can go to work Why finish the game? Go to overtime I wonder what it was you had in mind I've been thinking of the thing I try to find They are in the way They are in the way Leaning on the master plan Life is on its own Sitting by the vacant stares Leaving it alone Watching the meters go

This not how it should be It works out just the same Dealing with all the freight trains running in my brain I haven't been outside I can't see the light Raining sound arrives Still it's hard to tell Now it's raining sound we understand Now it's raining sound we understand Now it's raining sound we understand Now it's raining sound

Souvenir 02:54
Hey you In the corner I'd invite you over but I haven't got a chair Hey you On the phone You're gonna drive your car into a wall Send me a brick I need a souvenir A flattened coin A bottle of wine Hey you Reaching for your gun Go to the water park and have some fun See the animals screwing at the zoo It's too bad they're having more fun than you Hey you, hey you Send me a souvenir A flattened coin A bottle of wine

There are no guarantees in space You might float away Coming down from the stratosphere beyond No guarantees in space

Or Not 02:32
I feel the squall enough water to fill a tent Writing on a silent screen I'm trying to invent or not Random squandered extra time I tow the party line and look around the other side Sitting on the other sheet or not I'm looking up the trees
7.
We go out Free to be just where we are Still in doubt Why we've wandered oh so far Time starts now It seems there is no in between Because we are always on the cusp Of seeing the true reality I think is coming over me Time starts now We end up at the end of a different road Not far from where we started from

I'm on the outside I'm looking in You claim that's no way to rest my skin I have no idea how to begin Let's put it together it's no sin I never thought I knew the demon's tongue Flying by your windows on an astral plan I've Set the controls you know but I can't see the guages I always know how to disengage in danger I never thought I knew the demon's tongue How did this get in my head? What have I done? Now I'm convinced this isn't real I've lost myself Lying awake like someone else from below

Gonna tell you what I'm thinking about It's not up to me still I let it out I'm on the mend making fences What can you see? The streets are feeling empty I pause again to watch the light change But I'm not feeling anxious I'm out on my own Not down on the floor Better get out of here I wander things happen so fast I turn around to find what's gone On the edge of the fence I'm looking in It's not like I laugh at the reaper I want to be around What am I thinking? I'm not down on the floor I need to get out Not down on the floor Not down on the floor I wish I knew what I was talking about There's no filter in space Trying to get my intentions That's all I want Not down on the floor I need to get out Not down on the floor

I am busy being what I need to be I can't tell what it is 'cuz I don't know I try to stay away I try to hide if I'm feeling strange You can always find me hiding in plain sight What do you want from me? I've taken all I can today What do you want from me? I'm not listening anyway What do you want from me? Go ahead and tell me These are headphones I'm wearing Not microphones for you to share your issues and your thoughts of the day And what it means to me What you think it should I am hungry I'm hungry for some time and space OK, I will have some cake I guess I try to stay away I try to hide if I'm feeling strange You can always find me hiding in plain sight What do you want from me? I've taken all I can today What do you want from me? I'm not listening anyway What do you want from me? Go ahead and tell me These are headphones I'm wearing Not microphones for you to share your issues and your thoughts of the day

Out Of Town 03:28
You know I want to get away I try to claim I always want to stay Here I am all day Sitting on the shelf If it's so important I can't hear myself I want to take you out of town To somewhere we don't belong Not unlike here You won't mind I know Here I am all day Sitting on the shelf If it's so important I can't hear myself An endless caravan of camels from the zoo Pack up what's left of my things and run me out of town for good Keeping time I'm out of my mind I know Ringing doorbells I knock over your garbage cans Screaming cars and cats and time I'm hiding from I don't know what's keeping me behind Here I am all day Sitting on the shelf If it's so important I can't hear myself An endless caravan of camels from the zoo Pack up what's left of my things and run me out of town for good I want to take you out of town

I've been down You have too I've been down before And I'll be there again I can't wait no hurry not too soon I can't wait to see you again And that's the only way this will work for me You take the bad the good you hope that we're alright We're alright I've been thinking about the time before we met So unclear I was down And I'll be there again I can't wait no hurry not too soon I can't wait to see you again And that's the only way this will be for me You take the bad the good you hope that we're alright We're alright

Running Away 01:03

With a shoe on one foot Not going anywhere Maybe in circles A tetherball flying in the air Off the rope and breaking tension Cut it with a knife I had no intention Just moving along and going as I know
