Track Name: Not Clay
I never saw the point of drinking water – OH NO
I lose my edge on the surface
Make an appointment to get fired from work – OH NO
I learned my lesson in liquid courage!

Is this what you wanted?
Cause it happens all the time.
Counting pills in pockets never seemed like bad advice

Scum of the earth
Color me awkward
Ready to rage
Teeth are cracking on the cage

I met the morning with my face on the floor – OH NO
I never thought I'd be boring
I never thought I'd make the morning at all – OH NO
Surprise! The sunshine is smiling on me!

Is this what you wanted?
Cause it happens all the time
Counting pills in pockets never seemed like bad advice

Scum of the earth
Color me awkward
Ready to rage
Teeth are cracking on the cage

The dream is in your head
It's what they all said
Arise over coffee and under asbestos.

Yeah...
I don't know why...
We're all here.
(We're all here!)
We're all here tonight.
Track Name: Body Anymore
You tell me...
“Go somewhere no one else can see!”
I could wait around

Take your time...
Even if there is no time
I can hear the sound
I can hear the sound
It’s underground
It might get loud

You know someone
Well I know everyone
And we get down

Yeah we get down.

I don't wanna eat
I don't wanna sleep
I don't wanna learn
I just wanna burn

My brain is on the wall and my jaw is on the floor
I don't wanna be in body anymore

You told me
That you were harmless just like candy
Now we will see yeah we will see yeah we will see yeah we’ll see

You take everything you hear
And twist and turn it up
So vomit worthy
Now I can't breathe No I can’t breathe no I can’t breathe I can’t breathe

I put my head down
Cuz everyone around me is already passed out
But I don't sleep no I don't sleep no I don’t sleep….

No I don't sleep

I feel so sad when the sun goes down
In apartments smashing the windows out
Oh I feel so sad when the sun goes down
Burn it down but it down burn it down burn it down...

I don't wanna eat
I don't wanna sleep
I don't wanna learn
I just wanna burn

My brain is on the wall and my jaw is on the floor
I don't wanna be in body anymore

I'm not in my body anymore...
I'm not in my body anymore...I'm not in my body anymore...I'm not in my body anymore...I'm not in my body anymore...I'm not in my body anymore... I'm not in my body anymore...
Track Name: Ego Party
Oh No
It’s all about
It’s all about the things inside our skull

Lately,
You and I
You and I been talking for a while

Weekend in the wild – we got it all wrong
think I need to lighten up the audience has got it all wrong

Sorry so ambivalent
Sorry checking myself in
Sorry too important now
Freak out

I never thought it’d come to this
I never thought I needed this
I never thought I would come here today
I never thought I would leave here today
I never thought I would stay here today
I never thought it would happen to me

Oh no
It never ends
Evil little friend of innocence

Get a chance
To live again
Celebrate with ritual revenge

Sorry so ambivalent
Sorry checking myself in
Sorry too important now
Freak out

I never thought it’d come to this
I never thought I needed this
I never thought I would come here today
I never thought I would leave here today
I never thought I would stay here today
I never thought it would happen to me
Track Name: Running From Bees
Put your head in my pocket
Keep your eyes on the prize
If you're looking for me at home
Got a perfect disguise

I'd sink but I don't know how to swim
I'd help but I don't know how to heal

I run away in the blink of an eye,
This time,
Any day anybody oh it's not right

“But can I make it this time?”

Gonna Die
1,2,3,4, Right on time now

Put your head in my pocket
keep your eyes on the prize
If yr free falling out of love
Shoot me out of the sky

I shout STAND OUT so I can't fit in
I close my eyes so I'm not afraid

I run away in the blink of an eye
This time,
Any day anybody oh it's not right

“But can I make it this time?”

Gonna die
1,2,3,4, right on time now

Me?
Anymore
Anymore I caught you right on time to-
Keep you safe from harm…

Not Me
Anymore?
Anymore I caught you right on time to-
Keep you safe from harm…

Can’t see!
Anymore
Anymore I caught you right on time to-
Keep you safe from harm…

Not me!
Anymore!
Anymore I caught you right on time to
Keep you safe from harm…

Carried away to the opposite shore!
Track Name: Outside
I…
I feel the face go white and
Slip between the blinds

Truth…
It’s burning your bruise
And nail me to the sky
Another fool moon
Makes you feel exceptional inside.

I don't know what's going on
(You know the truth it's Armageddon)
I don't know what's going on
(It’s over now, we're never better)

I know it's not my family
Save the enemy
And it will always be this way
It's just a shallow grave

I...
Don’t wanna go outside
the universe ignites

You...
It’s burning your bruise
I’m hanging with the lights
Another fool moon
Makes you feel exceptional inside

I don't know what's going on
(You know the truth it's Armageddon)
I don't know what's going on
(It’s over now, we're never better)

I know it's not my family
Save the enemy
And it will always be this way
It's just a shallow grave

I'm coming by
I'm coming by
Look alive
I am by your side
I am by your side again
Track Name: Machines
Gonna make a move
Gonna start a fight
Everything is all right

Do I wanna know
What I didn’t know?
Everything is allllllllll right

I know my rights as a citizen
Oh you could cuff my hands
But I'm a self-made man

I know a handful of names
By hearts and ghosts and I need to know
Am I free to go?
Or am I just feeling detained?

We are delicate machines
Made of ordinary
Things and thoughts I'm
Happy you won't know until you're already

Gone...
From this world
When they rip your mind out
Will they knock your lights out of the universe?
Are you kind?
Never mind….
do we become ghosts?

Gonna make a move
Gonna start a fight
Everything is all right

Do I wanna know
What I didn’t know?
Everything is allllllllll right

Sometimes I feel like I could stand a thousand feet tall then I can take out all my screws just to feel the thrill of watching myself fall

And do I really have to know?
Why you always have a lighter
But you never got a spare cigarette

We are delicate machines
Made of ordinary
Things and thoughts I'm
Happy you won't know until you're already

Gone...
From this world
When they rip your mind out
Do they knock yr lights out?
And would you stand up and say
I know my rights
I know my rights
I know my rights!

We are delicate machines
Made of ordinary things and thoughts
I'm happy you won't know until you're already gone
We are delicate machines...

(We break so easily.)
Track Name: Stare Away
Paper bag skin
Third degree burns
I don’t know why I feel I just know that I feel

And you know
When the wind turns
This time it goes slow

Maybe I
Should throw a pity party
So I can’t complain when nobody shows

Leave before the season
While we knew you hardly
Don’t be surprised to find out
Everything around here’s the same

Don’t stare me away
Don’t stare me away
Don’t look at me with those eyes

Why am I so loud?
I always like the bad intentions
Oh look at me with my new weapon of self-destruction

You know we can
Act like we don’t give a fuck
But that’s no way to act
When you’re all grown up

This is real
This is not a drill
But I’ve got a new car and I’ve got a new dog and I’ve got a new group of
people to throw parties with and act like we don’t exist at all.

Don’t stare me away
Don’t stare me away
Don’t look at me with those eyes

And it feels like I’m walking on thin ice hot coals rusty nail razorblades alcohol broken glass nicotine
BROKEN EVERYTHING
BROKEN EVERYTHING
I will shut you out the door but I’m never sure when I get the feeling in my brain-OH

Don’t stare me away
Don’t stare me away
Don’t look at me with those eyes
Track Name: Too Little Too Late
Everybody’s asking
“What your story today?”
I only started today
My only story’s today
Hey-

Everybody’s laughing at the top of the stairs
“Who’s at the bottom of stairs?”
They’re only stealing the self-portrait

Too little too little too little too late
I only started today I was a little too late
Hey-

Everybody’s tripping at the bottom of stairs
“Who’s at the top of the stairs?”
They’re only stealing the self portrait

(Today Today!)
I’m desperate
(Today Today!)
For attention
(Today Today!)
Hey are you listening yet I can’t quit the bed

I will be free
When I believe
We can’t count on anyone or anything
Ya know?

I will be free
When I believe
We can’t count on anyone or anything
Ya know?

(Today Today!)
Too little too little too little too late
You got cement on your face
You got cement on your forehead
Everybody’s asking what’s your story today?
I was a little too late
I was a little too late

I am not that desperate
For an island more like hope
I am not that desperate
Take me back to the place I call home.
