Track Name: Big Fish
They'll teach you everything
About how to fit in a box
Correct your pitch and sing
What you is and what your not
Let's make it interesting
Take away what you got

Dragging behind ancient airwaves
Time is drifting
Peddle fast Now, cut my tether
You can't lift me

Know what to do what to do
When good enough's all they want from you
What to say what to say
We've come soo far
But were still so far away
When you find the truth
I hope to shit you follow your own

We've gotta' build our own damn spaceship
Were not gonna' fall
Tear down the old stipulations
We'll burn em' all
Set aside the old vibrations
And listen too the song
Track Name: Bloody Train
You said I can't roll back time
So come inside with me
And we'll work it out
Ya, I said we'll talk this one out

I've heard it's cold out there
So come inside with me
And we'll work it out
Ya, I think we'll fuck this one out

I've heard there's wolves
in these woods
And I want them to eat me

Whoa, I said I love you
But you'd thrown it all away

Whoa, I know I'll miss you
And I've missed you everyday

This is the first
And the last love song
That I will ever play

I'll be sleeping in the train
I'll be drinking in the train

I'll be sleeping in the train
I'll be bloody in the train

Whether it's now or later
Whether it's never

O

I'll always love you
For who you used to be

I'll always love you
For who you really are
Track Name: Caves
We're not on either side
Let's go out to the caves tonight

And wait for them
To kill each other

Wait for them
It'll all be over

We're not afraid to die
Let's swim out past the waves tonight

And wade for them
To burn each other

Wade for them
It'll all be over

Cause I'm against positions
I'm against the mission

I'm against the structure of this fucking war

I'm against the media
It's something they're feeding ya

And who'd do it better
Than a couple schooled rich white guys
And who'd be more honest
Than a couple schooled rich white guys that are right

Because I'm up on the earth
But I'm down in the clouds

I said I'm up on the earth
But I'm down in the clouds and I'm drowning them out

I said O
Track Name: Walk Away
The see-saw is not to blame
You can't play
Without somebody on the other side of the plank
And Mary goes round
About the town
But at the end of the day
She's just a circle on the ground

She can't walk away
Why can't she walk away
They won't let her walk away
Why can't she walk away

So bow down to what is fake
Let's relive all of our mistakes
Now, should we stay or should we go
We've been thinkin' so long that I don't really know
Track Name: Find Your Place
You’re whispering
Is there something wrong
I wish that rain
Would go back home

They all say the world is gonna end
I just feel you gotta find your place on it
We’ve gotta find our place on it

If I stood on a box
Would you do it then
Hell no
I’d be drowning in the closed minded
Egyptians and prescriptions
The Pharaohs and their documentation

Nothing’s gunna stop us and
Nothing ever brings us down

You’re whispering
Is there something wrong
I wish that rain
Would go back home
You’re glistening when your
Innocence is gone
I wish that rain
Would go back home
Track Name: Morning Smile
No matter how hard I try
They’re always gunna take it away from me
No matter how much we pay
We can always fall for free
There will always be that hypocrite
Just like me
So settle your score if you come with me

And adhere to your morning smile
And adhere to your broken dial
Around here you can watch the sun
Get thrown into the sea

See
Track Name: Make It Real
Let it roll down that hill
Let it crack
Let it spill

I’m on the road and you feel all alone
Can’t taste my kisses on your telephone
I want to leave you
But I need you too
I’m going to be there
I’ll be home soon

And we’ll make it real
Or drift apart
I wanna make it real
Don’t let this fall apart

I’m on the road…
I’ve got my menu
And darlin’ you do too
I’m going to be there
I’ll be home soon
Track Name: Time Will Only Tell
Workin’ for that money
But we’re only getting older
Gotta pack it up and sell it
Tell em it’s a motor
It will take you where you want to be
No matter who you are
And it will come with that guarantee
That it will take you really far

But Time will only tell
So make it what you will

I’m getting lost in my brain
I’m getting lost in the hour
Everything’s just the same
Everything’s getting sour
Track Name: Wake Up
It’s all here now
Cause you’re looking at the end
The ignorance and blame to see through
Hold them close now
Cause you’re looking for a friend
You’re looking for something to lean on
It’s not over
So go and gather them
Go and gather them and ask
Say
Are you living
Are you a copy of the scene
Are you that picture in the magazine

STOP
WAIT
We’ve got more to delegate
JUST
GO
RUN
We think it’s time to live for fun
And don’t hold me back
Cause I’ll swing
And it won’t be nice to meet
PLEASE
DON’T
STRAIN
Breathe and take this chance to
Flex your brain

You people wake up singing
This is a song for you
You people wake up from dreaming
Don’t live in solitude
This is a song for you
Track Name: Don't Have Today
We all want what we don’t have today
Check your other pants
Try back next week
Because we all want what we don’t have today

Guy thinks he has everything
A lonely walk with an empty dream
Why you gotta be like that
Why you gotta be so down
Sit down, tell me what I need
I need someone to tell me everything
Why you gotta be like that
Why you gotta be so weird
So weird…
Because we all want what we don’t have today

After years of constant devotion
Still hasn’t gained anything
Forced to put away his emotion
Sews his mouth shut to sing
Why you gotta be like that
Why you gotta tie it down
It’s why you always fear the rejection
It’s why there’s no song to your sound
Your sound
Because we all want what we don’t have today
Check your other pants
Try back next week
Weak
