Track Name: HOTFOOT
I'm sleeping in in the age of unrest. First a foot in the water now i'm off the deep end. My best friends all see me drown, my best friends all talk about it. I'm trying to keep an impossible high, stayin my own shit just to know i'm still here. My best friends all see me drown, my best friends all talk about it. Hotfoot!

If i can't pull myself back up I'm gonna go deeper down into the mud. We'll fit right in and make some friends, I hope this feeling never ends. If i can't pull myself up, I'm gonna go deeper down into the mud. Big problems spin around, don't stop smiling till you hit the ground. Hotfoot!

I'm sleeping in in the age of unrest. Keep my head over the water trying to keep together. Cocaine vampires I can't compete. Waiting for to come and swallow me. If i can't pull myself back up I'm gonna go deeper down into the mud. We'll fit right in and meet some friends and fall asleep in the deep end. Hotfoot!
Track Name: Blow Away
Honey, lets get rid of the kids, the pets are allergic to them. I open up the fridge every 30 seconds and just stare around for a while. My arms are still covered in your shopping lists, you are the person i want to watch tv with. You wanna know why everyone else wins I wanna know whats on next?

Kiss me once i fall down, kiss me twice i'm underground. All i ever wanted was to blow away somewhere I'll never have to think again. It's the same game that we're playing again.

Lipstick wipes, fucked for time. Throw another quarter in the meter, baby. Holographic jesus come to me in my sleep, tell me what this love is supposed to mean? In an air conditioned nightmare, you get out or you get weird. Staring in the mirror trying to disappear, trying to lose myself but keep finding that i'm right here.
Track Name: Funeral for Lightning
My paradise is neutral, a sleek silver comet dream. Your kids line up to see it, a florescent plastic whim. You're wearing white at a funeral for lightning, lighting up the way down. My head tears in two wanting to be something i'm not . . . not just lying awake now. So light up the way down. Lets take a drink for every gone forgotten dream. Lets rate the dead 1 through 10, hoping they enjoy the peace. And again lines on their faces show their ages. Well my heart turns back to wanting, to be somewhere I'm not, not just lying awake now.
Track Name: We Awake
In my head, we can play. We can waste the world away. We are fading from the day we awake. I heard a song the other morning. Said there would be no tomorrow. But while we hold each other here, I don't care. Is the touch of her cheek on the curl of her hair or her smile like a window looked out a long time ago. Our city in sheets and a sun that has faded from amber to sand, now I'm ready to start again. The nights we awake and the times we pretend and the city's our temple, released us a long time ago. In my bed, we can play, we can foil and we can fake. We are fading from the day we awake.
Track Name: Video Hostage
Laying by the exit in plain view. No one slows down enough to notice you. Is he just sleeping, or is he dead? Or is it all a cry for attention? Video hostage, 100000000 views. No one stays long enough to know its you. And my minds a freeway, and I'm going to fast. Seems i've forgotten all the things i've past. Well i just wanted it to last the same way that we had it. I just wanted it to last. Faded colours like memories fall out of my head. You blame it on your parents, blame the city your from, blame the guy on your couch or you blame yourself. It doesn't change nothing, you're a broken clock running in circles until the ticking stops.
Track Name: Loops
In circles again, we end right where we began. The loops won't ever end. Whats been said? We're stuck in conversations that don't mean a thing. We'll i've been hurt, so i won't feel it, it'll be just like we're going in loops again. Later on we'll take back all the things we said, we're going in loops again. i've been hurt and we've been here. it feels just like we're going in loops again. Said that it's love, well if it is i've had enough. the loops are killing us. in blindness we knew it right from the start, our numbness has evolved.

sometimes i fall and i don't land
thats when i know t¶ m8ust be ¨ˆøfer
My friend simjen, she's the best, i take her everywhere i go. we never fight cuz she never says no! oh simjen i love you so
dead in the eyes
nothing inside
dead in the eyes
nothing inside
dead in the eyes
nothing inside
dead in the eyes
nothing inside
'simjen...'
'yes'
'i've been thinking, you know how much i love you..'
'i love you too, doldrums'
'but... there's something i gotta tell you'
'whats that???'
'there's . . . someone else, she's the new edish, and well, i think we should disconnect'
'noooooooo'
Track Name: Industry City
All the movement in the city i can't sleep. All the white lights washing over it i can't think. All the people in industry city don't dare a dream. Dream! Busy people in a hurry going nowhere. Busy people never argue just acquiesce. All the people in industry just disconnect. But when alone, everything disappears. Feel as one, can be who I want to be. If I'm dreaming don't pinch me awake. Just let it go on, and go on, and go on . . .
Track Name: Closer 2 U
Lately i've been finding your expression on my face. Knew you for a second but you never went away. How can i be nostalgic for something i never had? How can something that was never good have gone so bad? How can i get closer to you? Already I can see the vultures already circling. Little do they know I'm already dead. Already I can see the path laid out for me and I don't want to know, I just want to grow out of control. Another vision from the night before. I never thought I'd come to this. Yea wasted's the right word man did i implode …i never thought i'd come to this.
