Dead Dick 03:21
Cold kiss tell me what I missed Freeze frame left the world ashamed Advice tell it to me twice Hot love burning down the avenue It’s been this way for an eternity A life too many Death sentence fits the crime deserving No life in penny Been gone so long I don't feel anything Been dead so long she feels alive again Dark soul lying takes a toll No judge his lover's on parole Restrained guilty from the frame No shame I've been married three times Feels like his life was an eternity He hurt so many Death sentence fits the crime deserving No life in penny Been gone so long I don't feel anything Been dead so long she feels alive again Dead dick lost his head Can’t perform in bed Nothing left to hold in his hand Dead dick lost his head

2X Void 02:37
I'm looking down straight into you Body so tired Let's cut this world in two A double void our world destroyed How can we save this A little faith in your death wish Expose this truth Yeah your god he don't exist A double void so go ask Freud Going unconscious That's the way things go I guess -double void, got not faith- Pay with mistakes live with regrets This will never go away A double void is here to stay Tear us apart, split me in two Give me a knife I’ll cut this world in two I’ve said it twice beauty is nice Let's see who gets it right Sun shines a light until it explodes We all wait for it to blow -everybody waits- Warm from the glow we wait for it Until this void it don't exist -everybody waits- Until this void it don't exist We wait for for it That's the way things go I guess -double void, got not faith- Pay with mistakes live with regrets This will never go away A double void is here to stay

You once claimed that Rock'n'roll was dead "Just like painting" Is what you said Why do anything When everything's been done? And still you're out here Soaking up the sun And you lead them Lead them to your door I rode my bike to Arnold Lane I stood and watched the sky turn pink My mind wandered like a Khufu ship Floating on the Nile I thought of all the plagiarists Heralded as seers Every generation's heroes Born of their elders' tears And we lead them Lead them to our doors Because we want them We want them at our doors We need them We need them at our doors
5.
I move at a normal speed Not afraid to wait and see To see how it all plays out To put an end to all this doubt Waiting for a shadow to take shape Covering a distance and a place Wait for time and the paint will peel Watch the light for a soul revealed Torn from humanity What's left for you and me Waiting for a shadow to take shape Covering a distance and a place Idle minds sit collecting dust Turned on a collector's lust Ripped from an ancient page I hope we haven't lost our way Waiting for a shadow to take shape Covering a distance and a place
6.
Facing nothing But our own deceit We look to the stars For what's at our feet And we spread our seed Agronomy domine Let us now Praise great estates The very sponsors Of our certain fate As they spread their seed Agronomy domine
7.
This institution It values me You write me off as a liability My life savings, our life in debt We'll find the words when there is nothing left From my door deals and debt No royalties From my door deals and debt Buy U.S. Steel Watch it mature Can't build a home when the base is insecure A little windfall Drink to our health Drink til it's empty, until there's nothing left From my door deals and debt No royalties From my door deals and debts No rights of heirs All transparency is bought I live free inside my thoughts Come live free with my inside this dream My Shangri-La Live for free, come live with me No credit here I’ll pay it off with my door deals and debt This rent ain't free I’ll pay it off with my door deals and debt Transparency I’ve lived so long I’m already dead Transparency I’ve lived so long I’ll pay it all back With my door deals and debt

Silhouettes 02:56
There is no god There is no salvation The temples that we build Are acts of desperation Once more for the stenographers Twice for those who set their clocks Three times if you cross a river Four sails with a slight reprise Five shadows on the wall Six guns salute our sacrifice Seven serpents speak There is no heaven There is no revelation Every sacred text Is just manipulation Are we only silhouettes?
9.
Bad Eyes 02:20
Just like bad news The way it travels Sucks the air out of a room I have bad eyes I still see through these lies Still see inside of you So hard to read This tragic comedy When our sight is going bad Feels like we are turning back Pages of a history We are destined to repeat Can't learn it for ourselves Repeat it over, and over, and again I have bad eyes A world unrecognizable Ever since a light shined onto you Can't shake what I have seen Yeah the pressure got to me Now it's burned inside a dream Something bigger than you or I Rejected by the sea Yeah we lost some dignity Lost faith in ourselves You said you saw the truth But I see something else I have bad eyes A world unrecognized I see the end is coming soon I have bad eyes I still see the lies Ever since this light shined down on you
10.
Tell me straight Tell me now The last time was a game With our gnashing teeth and savage wit I know it's true I know it now The future Is as shapeless as the clouds We've been through The wind and rain Counting sheep and making plans With the century's end in view Tell me straight Tell me now Are you staying here for more? Or are you ready to move on? I'll say it once I'll say it now You've got to leave this town Before it swallows you It will swallow you
11.
Bad Omen 03:39
Right as the rain, faithful explained I still have questions Like what is your name What are your hours Where is the exit I feel a bad omen Lost like a plane out of its range I still have questions Like what's the delay Who leads the way I'm taking suggestions I feel a bad omen East River ships following currents like trends I know they're going some place I see a bad omen
12.
I still call them all my friends Vultures that they are And I call myself a journalist When I pick apart their bones Though the information that I find Is worthless I suspect But babe, they're not like us They've long since lost my trust They will say anything And disappear in the dust It's funny we can't see the end As near as it may be The city nights are charmed and bright As we chirp into our phones Confirmation is all we want And it's the one thing we can't get But babe, I'm not like you I’ve long since changed my views I won't say anything But I’ll disappear if I must
