Track Name: Why? ...
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
Track Name: Raining Sound
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
Track Name: Souvenir
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
Track Name: No Guarantees In Space
There are no guarantees in space
You might float away
Coming down from the stratosphere beyond
No guarantees in space
Track Name: Or Not
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
Track Name: Time Starts Now
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
Track Name: The Demon's Tongue
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
Track Name: Not Down On The Floor
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
Track Name: What Do You Want From Me?
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
Track Name: Out Of Town
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
Track Name: See You Again
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
Track Name: With A Shoe On One Foot
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
