Track Name: Exploder
Can you slow down a speed of light mind
that moves so fast you can’t see it shine
but know if you could you'd surely find
a flash so bright you go blind

How do you diffuse the exploding heart
whose shock waves can travel so far
fueled by love, built to blow from the start
the ticking time bombs that we are….

But that’s just how it goes around here

Lie, if you think this is real boy

Where do you find the disappearing act
should you sit tight and hope they come back
or pick up their trails and follow their path
you may find them where you left them at
Track Name: The Ringing Bells
Ringing bells and screaming sirens
public hells and private heavens
wishing wells and empty pockets

Evil grins on friendly faces
deadly sins in holy places
it’s the oldest things in the latest spaces

Rewind
back goes the time with it
streamline
the source and the sound
it’s a free ride

Backwards
backed words
say what you feel you know
you feel it in your bones 'cause they shake, yeah they shake
you move your feet to go
until the earth below it quakes, yeah it quakes
I hope you're feeling alright
Track Name: Fate, Come
Fate, come take a liking to me now
Love, come make a lover out of me somehow

Please, if you please

Time, come make a traveler out of me now
Fate, come take a liking to me somehow

Please, if you please

Fate, come take a liking to me now
Track Name: May You Go Miles
I’m sure you show yourself best when you eat
except the meal you're eating
should be someone feeding you your teeth
but out of touch and so out of reach

Dream sweet dreams
that you might be so
bold as to go
where few have ever gone

So you say we're all beneath your shoes
I’m sorry, but your simple reservations
with the synthesized creations won’t do
it seems as though we are better without you

With your so called business in your mother’s basement
collecting criminals that don’t do crime
but you said it best man, you're one of a...

So pat your back for barely swinging par
and thanks for never failing to tell us
exactly how glamorous you are
so keep it up, I'm sure that you'll go far

ah ha ha ha

You said it best man, you're one of a kind
Track Name: A Family Familiar
How long must I wait, father?
Until it's time son, don’t even bother
Oh when is my time, mother?
You'll know child, until then help your brothers
But how will I know it, sister?
You just will so don’t let it miss you

What path must I choose, cousin?
Can’t say sir, most lead to nothing
Will there be signs, my kindly neighbor?
Who knows man, go and ask your savior
Oh savior, is my love a wasted?
You're young boy and you're yet to taste it

Just keep faith in all the right places
it’s all in or nothing in at all
keep sight of familiar faces
to remember when the angels come to call

Is it worth all its weight in gold?
will it die young or burn out old?
how long must I wait, tell me
Track Name: Mad Minds
Try, and hope to succeed
fight, and learn you can bleed
welcome to the animal in you
you're no different
lie...
welcome to the sinner that is you
you're so perfect

Forget the who, the what, where, and the when
‘cause it will happen time and time and time and time again
to no end

Loosely defined
product of self-design
the apple of your own eye
crudely refined
you're selfish no friend of mine
a master in your own mad mind
then you act as if no one had told you this?
you should feel ashamed
you should see your face

Welcome to the human that is you
you're so perfect

Die, Die

Try
Fight
Why?
Track Name: Mel
Some things, they don’t come so easily now
suddenly, you’re faced with the questions of how

What when and where, and with who

Pretty things, they don’t hold their beauty well
diamond rings, that aren't worth the price they sell for

What when and where, and for who

Hungry things, they eat while the eating is good
Melanie, she hunts as the hunter should

For something somewhere or someone
Track Name: Stop Talkin'
Stupid talks
the moron listens
about the world and its end
tv shows
about ancient myths
sell advertisements
pray the positive
somehow outlives
this negative
initiative
and I’ll just keep talkin’ about how the world’s gonna end

Studies shown
the papers published
the experts all weighed in
hope the opposite
truly exists
or else there is
no stopping this
and I’ll just keep acting like the world’s gonna end

I do fear there is a lightning bolt heading for here
Track Name: Wurli
My hands don’t shake
the thrill, it bores me
I claimed my space
still time ignored me
be sure to be sure all of the time
My heart, the rush
my beat, so hurried
the time, the place
the girl, the story
save time to save time
you need not worry
a man so still, a woman so wurli

But mine...
mine...

The chase, the craze
the rush, the glory
the win, the will
the one so worthy
keep it in mind for peace of mind
My head, my thoughts
my mood, so worried
a chance, a call
a choice before me
why ask the question, why?
you need not worry
in a dream so still in a world so wurli

But mine...
mine...

My hands don’t shake
the thrill, it bores me
I claimed my space
still time ignored me
be sure to be sure all of the time
you need not worry
in a life so still, in a love so wurli

But mine...
all mine...
Track Name: The Best Selling Show
It’s the end of the best selling show
and our time is nearing its end
I heard this year is the last year
that life is living on earth
I quit my job
packed my bags
get my words in


I'll call up my mother
to tell her I love her
I never said it that much
spend more time with my sisters
so they know I’ll miss them
I could never see them enough

It’s the end of the freakiest show
and our time is nearing its end
I heard this month is the last month
that life is living on earth
I quit my job
packed my bags
got my words in

I'll hang with my brothers
the old push and shovers
I'll miss pushing them back
then sit down with my old man
find some understanding
admit the things we both lack

It’s the end of the kinkiest show
and our time has come to its end
I heard this hour is the last hour life is living on earth
I quit my job
packed my bags
got my words in
