Track Name: black leaves
(thank you very much for joining us again)

was quiet on the western shore
when every atom split and the ground is red now
drown the islands, shake their cores
fall came to an end and the view is dead now

we'll return to where we came from
when all the leaves have turned to black
we'll look up and see the same sun
when all the trees have turned to ash

i know the windows, in the horizon
are losing balance, the pigs were flying
returned the favor, that they were hiding
it's been a long year, nobody's dying now

we'll return to where we came from
when all the leaves have turned to black
we'll look up and see the same sun
when all the trees have turned to ash

instead of searching for a trusse
we're driving endlessly
we're always circling the truth
Track Name: read books
forget a letter from the leader of an embassy
read books and gain the knowledge from the pages endlessly
i found a medicine, a medicine that fixes me
and you will gain the knowledge if you all are listening

i don't know, if you, can see, see the significance
walking through, the door, it leads, it leads to magnificent
and hate is so full of shit, that everybody flocks to it
8 is so close to 10, so go ahead and set your clocks to it

forget a lecture from professors that are hunting me
find what it means and whose at fault for what's in front of me
correcting endlessly the fault-lines that are underseas
until the leaders and the villagers can run and sing

i left with a key to the door that i left
i climbed on the rail and i settled on a bet
that 9 out of 10 times you'll stay asleep in bed
after what you see, you made a note of it

i don't know, if you, can see, see the significance
walking through, the door, it leads, it leads to magnificent
and hate is so full of shit, that everybody flocks to it
8 is so close to 10, so go ahead and set your clocks to it
Track Name: Living in the Bullseye
(Five, ten, zero.)

i'm alright, i'm alive

i'll believe it^ when i see it in the light, in the light of day
it's captivating with the captain's eyes never look away
i'd believe it if the planets were aligned with each land mine
there have gotta be some better ways to spend your hard-earned time

i'm alright, i'm alive

i'll believe it^ if the enemies are out of sight today
from the looks of it, defeat is here to stay
i'll believe it when the scenery around our home is safe
i'd believe it if the government would do what they say

(weezy "haha, yeah")

living in the bullseye, the planes and tanks are seasonal
to stop and take a breather, now that would be our miracle
with all the eager faces that live where you're retreating to
i cannot believe in this, you took away all reason to
Track Name: watch tv
while we're waiting on a thunderstorm to pass on by
i'm gonna watch the television until it burns my eyes
i'll turn it off as soon as i can see the sun in the sky
starin at the static while i'm waiting on the roads to dry

watch tv, watch, watch, watch, watch tv

changing channels til the mood's just right on the program guide
i'm gonna watch the television until the end of time
when there's nothin else to watch except the infomercials late at night
i worked so hard for the programs i recorded now i need to unwind

watch tv, watch, watch, watch, watch tv

"...this is really a great advance for us computer users, because we can now watch tv from our computer no matter where we are in the world, as long as we have an internet connection."
Track Name: earthquake
long red stripes in the sand and the seeds in the ground
i've shaken hands with the beach and all the trees all around
the villagers and all of the leaders pack up and leave town
this is how i made a living watching down from the clouds

i will never let you all, fall into the fault, you know
i will never let you all turn your heads inside of your homes

minutes pass into decades and you begin to tremble faster
i made a list of all the simple tactics that nobody will ever master
i've shaken hands with everybody in the city and we're only gonna
throw them backwards, throw them back words

i will never let you all, fall into the fault, you know
i will never let you all turn your heads inside of your homes

i will never
Track Name: soul explosion
she left while lying in the grass
and now nobody can see the truth
it was a soul explosion
she left while lying in the grass
nobody can't see the truth

out of nowhere

nobody in the living room
nobody on the continent
nobody on the planet earth
nobody in the universe

from the start of it

i put my heart in it

but you would be damned

if you ever had a part of it

out of nowhere

she left while lying in the grass
and now nobody can see the truth
it was a soul explosion
she left while lying in the grass
nobody can't see the truth
Track Name: The Waves
shoulda been runnin by now

imaginary brain, you brought about the change
the melodies trapped in my head, no longer remain
imaginary time, you brought me down the line
the melodies lost in my head, are now easy to find

i've seen, the way, they're losing all their rest
but all i do is sleep all day
evil eyes are headed west
and they got something to say
and I, can't turn into the weak
when my involvement cleared the way
coastal lines became the sea
and now the town hall is nothing but the bay bay bay bay bay bay bay bay bay bay bay bay

shoulda been runnin by now

some on the island say they'd never be afraid
if it weren't for the waves
they'd never close up shop, never lose their pay
if it weren't for the waves
though they could see the future, still they'd celebrate
if it weren't for the waves
you could forget all your wrongs, you could ignore a long day
if it weren't for the waves

the way they swing their arms so free....
and i don't have the time to crawl out of this hole i dug so deep,
it isn't a hole at all
everything that you create inside your head will eventually come alive and eat your brain
and take away your mind, then move on down the line
