Track Name: Livid
I'm livid, at what we're given
to survive
A credit card with interest
is ruining my life
Not sure about the reason why

I've been down for so long, I am a nothing
I've been saving it for so long, I am a nothing
I'm livid

I'm livid, at what we're given
to survive
Not sure about the afterlife, but we know
that we're all going to die

I've been down for so long, I am a nothing
I've been saving it for so long, I am a nothing
I'm livid

Still ain't got nothing
Track Name: Utopia Dope
When the bees have stopped stinging
Turn signals keep rhythm
Simple tasks are enjoyed & you respect your employer
Start picking the vamps out first
From the furniture crowd
Don't ingest what you doubt, be cool not proud

Stop putting your hard earned trust, out of farthest reach
Stop putting your hard earned trust
An impossible feat

When the parts are not missing
The unmoved are dissenting
When there's a ball in a glove, you got money and love
Stop punching your heavy eyes
That you keep disguised
Put a calendar up and take a chance on us

Stop putting your hard earned trust, in a wasted lush
Stop putting your hard earned trust, and become one of us
You stop putting your hard earned trust, in a wasted love
Stop putting your had earned trust and become one of us

There's nobody's head ain't set to explode
There's no piece of heaven, that you will know
We enjoy our time
We implode otherwise

Stop putting your hard earned trust, in a wasted lush
Stop putting your hard earned trust, out of farthest reach
Stop putting your hard earned trust, in a wasted lush
Stop putting your hard earned trust, and become one of us

When the bees have stopped stinging
Turn signals keep rhythm
Simple tasks are enough, you got money and love
Start putting the vamps out first
From the furniture crowd
Put a calendar up and take a chance on us.

Stop putting your hard earned trust, in a wasted lush
Stop putting your hard earned trust
An impossible feat
Stop putting your hard earned trust, out of farthest reach
Stop putting your hard earned trust, and become one of us
Track Name: Fruit Basket
A paradox pain - you got it
Sordid, temperate, honest
Exaggerated arms in all your drawing are a call for help
I want it too

Directed my aim at a target
It won't stand still, won't acknowledge
"You're not at the table, you're on the plate"
I understand, but as of late...
I want it too

Change your name to something that rhymes with orange
I'm not afraid of leaving you out of the chorus
What's the use of hanging your head solo?
Change your name to something that rhymes with orange
Something that rhymes with nothing at all

Inherited a lack of ambition
Implants don't dissolve with stitches
A new excuse for every year :
Too old to wait, too young to be afraid of mistakes
I want it too

Take from him, the parts that it
Take from him, the things that make it work
Take from it, whatever you want

Change your name to something that rhymes with orange
I'm not afraid of leaving you out of the chorus
What's the use of hanging your head solo?
Change your name to something that rhymes with orange
Something that rhymes with nothing at all
Track Name: Armory Vow
I came here to take your armory vow
To warm up and dry out
The hanging lamp that lights the paper ring shade
Is glowing red, makes you look devil gone tame
And almost kind and I'm alright
I won't write you off tonight, your armory vow

I woke up to body someone denied
The heat bends, the light ends
The shapeless day that forms the passage into dark
Is hanging now above the city's last bark
And almost kind and I'm alright
I won't write you off tonight, your armory vow

I'll be keeping an eye on you
I'll be looking out for you
Always holding out for you my dear
Track Name: Hornet's Nest
The words in question I'm sure were honest
I just have a fallout memory
Please don't let my, hornet's nest
Be the face that broke the camera's lens

A breaking chair, a heavy stare
And yes I'll take a glass of water
This is all that comes to me
Please don't let my, hornet's nest
Be the echo that remains when you have left

Safe from, every little thing

The words in question I'm sure were honest
I'm sorry fatality memory
Please don't let my, hornet's nest
Be the face that broke the camera's lens
Please don't let my, heartfelt wretch
Be the noisy passenger who ruined your whole trip
Track Name: Typographical Error
Somewhere, honey in your gills now
Say your name out loud seven times, before I forget
Switching out the color lens, call me back from where I've been
Say your name out loud seven times, before I forget

You made a big mistake, you will pay for it

Just enough, memory to keep the light
Balancing the floor at my back, palms in the offing
Telegraph and parry it, not sure what I offered yet
Something in the fire, grabbed your eye
And pulled you away

You made a big mistake, you paid for it
You made a big mistake, you will pay for it

Please don't ask me, I'm not begging you again
Don't ask it, there's no trouble in your wake
Don't ask it, I'm not feeding you
Don't ask it, there's no time for those who wait
It's too late

Lately honey in your gills now
Tracing little hands on counter tops, character crossing
Switching out the color lens, focus now on where I am
Say your name out loud seven times and fade away

You made a big mistake, you made a big mistake
You made a big mistake, you paid for it
Track Name: Best Man
Did you toast the man, did you toast the marriage?
Did you look to him, were you there to carry?
Does the final note in the story's ending put you in the cell or put you in the jury?

Did you speak to his hopes, or was it only cautionary?

Did you toast the man, did you toast the marriage?
Cause you cursed the man and you cursed the marriage.
Did you fashion a note into his inner pocket?
Was it custom made, was it customary?

Did you speak to his hopes, or was it only cautionary?
Track Name: The Happy Song
I ask you, "Where you from?"
Pennsylvania
A sinner or a nun?
What's the difference...
A killer in disguise?
A crowded room

I'll give you a slap on the wrist, I'll make you remember this

I ask you, "Where you from?"
Transylvania
A sinner or a nun?
Just play dumb
Are you injured in love?
Do you still care?

I'll give you a slap on the wrist, I'll make you remember this

I ask you, "Where you from?"
Pennsylvania
A sinner or a nun?
What's the difference...
Are you injured in love?
Who's to say?

I'll give you a slap on the wrist, I'll make you remember this

This is not a pure devotion, this is just a wheel in motion
I'll give you a slap on the wrist, I'll make you remember this
Track Name: April
April, may I join you?
Julie sent me, against her will
September collegiates that ogle you
No veil to lift and heaven's kind of a drag
You know why.

Helen,
Janet fed me marching orders to hold tough
Looks like you're hung up by your horoscope and heaven's kind of a drag
You know why.

It's a delicate drift before you mind's ashore
There's a delicate drift before your mind's ashore

You know why.
Track Name: Don't Mean Shit
Arms and guts hold you up, drive you nuts
You want to live out on a bluff, where you can't touch
What you left, who you lost

It don't mean much anyway
She don't feel much of anything does she
It don't mean shit anyway
We grow up on things that don't mean anything

Heart attack am I upset, left alone who's the punk
You want to call out in a crowd
You can't see what you've done, who you left

It don't mean much anyway
She don't feel much of anything does she
It don't mean shit anyway
We grow up on things that don't mean anything
