Track Name: Highway Preacher
In the land of freedom,
where every town's the same,
and every where that I go,
they're calling his name.

And what I've made the case for,
I could just take back,
where psycho-foreign concepts,
are stated as a fact.

Taking pictures of mountains,
backdropped with storm,
natural beauty is endless,
and people think there's more.

Pepsi cola machines,
adjacent picture frames,
with the image inside,
supporting his infame.

And the highway priest,
is following me,
everywhere that I go,
I've been beat,

Before I get my say,
on the notches in maps,
they'll have dug up the grave,
on christ's lap.

Have a half discussion,
with my lonely friend,
'till the reason is broken,
and the prophets descend.

It's no more than a vision,
for when there's no conclusion,
and in the land of freedom,
I guess there's never an end.
Track Name: Reel
We come upon a scene,
that should be on the movie screen,
I'd really like to see,
Where happiness finds me helpless,
And puts together some kind of descending mystery,
from a distant memory,
the woman's face is clouded,
and covering arachnids that will fall into the hole,
the cherry blossoms bloom I'll share the misty tower room with the only one I'd love,
that's all I would think of,
the world defies its meaning,
but all of this is seemingly untouchable,
there is no repeating,
there is no repeating or regret,
the world destroys its meaning,
but all of this is seemingly impermeable.

The image, the feel, surreal.
Track Name: Ideological Approach to Life
You're not regal enough,
to wear that crown of thorns.
Chemical reaction so rough,
so deserving to sit in that throne of yours.

But I can see you're trying so hard,
swimming up-stream.
A commentator on life,
at least that's how it seems.

I love you, I need you,
and I'm sure we'll work it out.
Cuz that's how it always goes,
when one of us starts to shout.

An Ideological Approach to Life,
I guess that's how it's always been.
An underwater, resentful impression,
A burst of wasted esteem.

An Ideological Approach to Life.
Track Name: Andrew
Watching the outer world go by underground.
Digging up righteous thoughts and making them profound.
Three times over my mind is made,
but I don't quite see my reasons today.

Theses that state we should fast,
'cause we treat the human tragedies past.

But how can I feel for if I can't even feel myself?
And how can we feel for if we can't even feel ourselves?

Living on spanish floors, behind irish doors.
Made an advancement to make an advancement with yours.
Learning how to numb the pain,
but nevertheless it's not humane.

Theses that state we should fast,
because we treat the human tragedies past.

But how can I feel for if I can't even feel myself?
And how can we feel for if we can't even feel ourselves?
Track Name: Lost Dog
This suburban disaster is also known as direction of birthright or depression of home and really what might be the cause of dismay is also a sigh of great relief as the only way that is not your lost dog that's a wild animal that doesn't know you at all where do you think it would rather be filling out its purpose or in captivity these delusions of living will put you in a trance force-feeding you plastic package you in cans and a little extra to put us all at ease is that what's always looming over is the bells and keys that is not your lost dog that's a wild animal that doesn't know you at all where do you think it would rather be filling out its purpose or in captivity
Track Name: RAW
I saw a man shaking his head,
and I couldn't guess what was wrong.
There was a fight going on,
and I didn't want to take part.

It was caused by a minor flaw,
and everything I see now is Raw.

It's not my fault.

Left town, later that day.
I just had to get out.
I hitched a ride, to the other side.
It was bad, at least I tried.

I guess that I was just wrong,
and everything I think now is Raw.

It's not my fault.

(1984)

It's not my fault.
Track Name: Atomiclock
Fascination with innovation,
and a culture based on architecture,
like the shelters breaking down,
in a town outside of eden's wall,
Atomiclock,
new technology,
why do you stop,
modern disease,
nostalgia from,
a time,
when style meant,
one-sided peace.

Twenty year explosion that never went off.

Boom
Track Name: Hadrian's Wall
And they're driving over.
It's like hadrian's wall.
There's no accomplishment,
no none at all.
Track Name: Èchec
A secret source of domination,
splitting into four,
by a parallel existence,
so easily unborn,
we should have stayed together,
a little longer and avoid,
one of us committing genocide.

Cuz the light jumps off your skin,
so differently than mine,
and the light jumps off your skin,
so differently than mine.

Thinking that you're coming from a place of bad past,
and when I think about myself I say just let it rest,

But now that I've got going,
I know that they've done wrong,
and I know you hate their shoes,
but I know you sing their songs.

And the light jumps off your skin,
so similar to mine,
and the light jumps off your skin,
so similar to mine,

It doesn't mean anything at all.

Looking at the world from above,
I can see I was born without eyes.

Looking at the world from above,
I can see I was born hypnotized.
Track Name: Stalemate
Pawn Vs Pawn and I'm at a standstill.
Healthy diet, eating roadkill.

I'm a sucker for a blank stare,
deer in headlights going nowhere.

These dragging thoughts that follow me,
I turn around they're gone instantly,

You know it's hard to be with you,
you said it yourself,
so split my brain in two.

A record skips when I say, yr name.
But it's just a scratch it's not the same.

These things we talk about again,
they have no meaning in the end.

Still there's a history and I'm ashamed.
Seems like I've always been late to the game.

And it's bad yeah, but that's the truth.
I'm an awful person, that's not new.

I wont hide it.
So I'll try it.
I wont fight it.
I won't hide it.
Track Name: Ashen Faced Son
he wasn't very strong and she wasn't very nice and they were left alone until things could move along and they learned to be polite at the top of their lungs it fires actions like insects coming through the walls shines through a second time you never let me feel at home with your broken dissonance and I need to keep things out and they better not come back she gave you the velvet then that was all there was it was better when you held it write a constitution for every little vice then write a set of laws just as an excuse to execute yourself i'm the combination of my mother and my father and they are both so dry and I can't go in water no I can't go in water this is why we're like this a flood of ice cold water and the ashen faced sons and daughters they'll breed like all of the others and have phobias to follow them long long after they're gone
Track Name: Almost Smile
He's got this almost smile,
it's just the sun in his eyes,
if you think that he's dancing,
then he's just swatting flies.

The corners of his mouth fit into his cheek,
like christianity into a (darwin) finch's beak.
Everything about him to the sound of his voice,
reminds me of myself and that I have no choice,
but to be like every single last boy,
that used to be himself,
but now has children of his own.

I'll be standing on a grave stone,
Thinking how i'll get one.
Standing on a grave stone,
thinking when I finish.
I'll be standing on a grave stone,
thinking how I am his.

I'll be standing on a gravestone,
hoping that I'll get one.
Standing on a gravestone,
hoping that I'll perish.

I'll be standing on a grave stone,
hoping that I never have kids.
Standing on a grave stone,
Thinking how i'll get one,
thinking how I'll never breed.

Standing on a gravestone,
jumping off the deep end,
thinking how i'll never breathe.

Boys build up their hate because of hate they receive,
as every single day they are held witness to disease.
This hate stays with them in their entire existence,
and finally comes out as soon as they have kids.

Teaching that inanimate object a lesson,
and talking to yourself with oppressed aggression.
Why should I have to take this name,
if I'm the last one it's going to stay that way.

I'll be standing on a grave stone,
Thinking how i'll get one.
Standing on a grave stone,
thinking when I finish.
I'll be standing on a grave stone,
thinking how I am his.

I'll be standing on a gravestone,
hoping that I'll get one.
Standing on a gravestone,
hoping that I'll perish.

I'll be standing on a grave stone,
hoping that I never have kids.
Standing on a grave stone,
Thinking how i'll get one,
thinking how I'll never breed.

Standing on a gravestone,
jumping off the deep end,
thinking how i'll never breathe.

If you think it's a smile it's just the sun in my eyes,
but if you think that I'm dancing then I'm dancing.
Track Name: Not Surprised
Buried deep in a hidden place,
protected by youth.
A crying man shouting in my face,
everything but the truth.

He told me to run around,
follow in his steps.
'Cuz the only thing he ever found was a bottle to his chest, and,
I wish it would be over with,
but I'm trying so hard to hold on.
It feels like jumping into a black hole,
and still falling strong.

Let's just not talk about it.
Can't see from miles away.
Lucky you got out when you did,
lucky you escaped.

Spent a night in the hospital,
after breaking up what's left.
And I'm not surprised at all,
cause it's what saved him from the rest.

And I know, it's inevitable,
but there's just too much going on.
You were right all along,
but can't you see this is wrong?

Let's just not talk about it.
Can't see from miles away.
Lucky you got out when you did,
lucky you escaped.

I'm not sure if I undersand,
how serious it is.
It just feels like an old joke now,
and I'm the next one on the list.
Track Name: Traveler
Like when you used to think you acted so paranoid,
and you're thinking more and more that you're right,
when the intellectuals that take up you boy,
keep you in the middle as passive sides,
choosing not to take part with those who pose opposition,
to them and staying secure with their closed minds,
when you're bringing up a flaw in society,
and getting that flaw in response.

Let's coast the galaxy,
and see what's temporary.

I believe in you but what is really real, to us.
