Track Name: Brother
i guess you thought that you could hide
you were the easiest one to find
i guess you thought that you could run
you were slower than everyone
selling shit that you can't buy
why would you even try
playing games that you can't win
try to breathe without oxygen
i guess you thought that you were smart
but what sets you apart
i guess you thought that you were strong
then why the hell would it take so long
you're not my brother
you're just another
mother fucker's brother
i guess you thought that you could hide
Track Name: Sham King
what's steven doing sitting, peering out the window
what sort of legacy to leave when powered by an ego
i hoist your chair you know i'm there until you're dropped
left to your best estimate of why your entire world stopped
living in a sham king's dream
get me out
seeing what the sham king sees
what's steven doing now that i have finally left home
unable to discern his own message to the people
i pity persons picked to plug the hole
of a dam so poorly built in days disassembled
out of touch with a bunch who feed on intolerance eat it up
regurgitate and watch me feed from your gullet it's cool
Track Name: Sunlight
conflicted rays
some applaud the backs of vacationers marshmallow gold
others crowd necks
soon disappear
a moment's memo mention message that a day has passed
and it passes right through me
it discovers the new me
at least the one i want to be
the one i've wanted you to see
not jaded and faded
unfazed and unrelated
how to re-begin in the garden in which i was born
you let it all wash away
then it all washed away
harvest sunlight
in my mouth
until the sun comes out
Track Name: It's Not Alright
frozen brain and absent minded
your thoughts so eloquently guided
i'll be the passage you can write in
yeah, it's not alright
persuading your brain to dissolve this plight
bumbled muddled crushed defeated
even when you had all the reasons
i can be something you believe in
yeah, it's not alright
persuading your brain to dissolve this plight
i'm sleeping in the bed that's been haunting you
the more your nightmares bloom it seems the less i do
how can i turn your days into a constant dream
when all that you wish is all that it seems
i know i'd like to think its nice
but it's not alright
it seems you always pay the price
and it's not alright
Track Name: The Truth
learning the truth
it's all you have to do
the truth
but how'd it come to you
there's proof
in your brain the thoughts they moved
tangled cords that wont come loose
the noose
you can wonder
you're wonderful
yeah i wonder
if i ever knew the truth at all
but then i remember
it doesn't really matter
all that really matters
is i know everything
i need
at least
the truth
before you spoke it strangled you
now do whatever you were sent here to
i'm moved
you're a star child fucking indigo i'm blue
why save the basic hue
Track Name: I've Got Ants
invader crawl out of the opening
so bothered by the moving things
they graze my floor
the cattle to my farmer
so then i carry out the genocide
watch and wait for them to die
enthralled and impassioned to the point where it's alarming
i've got ants
i pay the rent
wave of the hand and kill the colony
blood it passes through my arteries
my brain is drunk on a newfound sense of honor
go to sleep to dream the mound is mine
the queen is crawling back to die
a restful sleep is all i've ever wanted
