Tidal Wave 04:04
No one wants to listen to your Whining or you bleeding all the Time, you don’t keep your problems to yourself After sleeping all day Can’t you find anything better to say Than “man, don’t I deserve a break?” If I go over the overpass It’ll be from bumping Heart of Glass A little too loud, looked away and then I Courted death downtown Find me lost inside The wreckage that I use to hide my mind From anyone else who’s been Putting me down while I’m all by myself I won’t be told what to do I won’t take my cues from you I would fight throughout my life to avoid Turning into you You could have a life like this You could sink into the shit A little structure keeps the rupture in check Til you forget that it exists If I go over the overpass It’ll be from bumping Heart of Glass A little too loud, catch me Flying around and courting death downtown Find me lost inside the Wreckage that I use to hide my mind From anyone else, built my shelter Let me sleep and dream on a Tidal wave of seafoam That brings me home All things that we own Let me know We’re not done Visions keep on spinning in and Out of middle class decadence I’ve got my fence up the world can waste away Sirens keep on firing warning signs— All hands on deck—have I lost my mind To tantalizing forces just out of reach outside If I go over the overpass It’ll be from bumping Heart of Glass A little too loud, looked away and then went Belly up downtown Find me lost inside the Wreckage that I use to hide my mind From anyone else, built my shelter But it’s all gone wrong on a Tidal wave of violence Full of silent hopes Can’t read your mind when You’ve decided It’s all gone It lets me know we’re not done So let me know we’re not

Inside Out 03:11
Time and decay dominate everything— We strut, we fret, we fade Structure and story turned out to be boring You grope, hoping for something to stay Shaking and stirring, you feel like you’re burning— Everyone is so full of hate But that nuclear fire will extinguish desire And together we’ll disintegrate But oh, it turns you inside out Repeating that it’s only skin deep You’re falling apart and can’t figure out What happened to the ground beneath your feet Obliterate me, I can’t tolerate me I think I’ve learned enough about me If that ecstasy frees me then death will release me And I’ll burn as the world turns without me But oh, it turns you inside out Repeating that it’s only skin deep You’re falling apart and can’t figure out What happened to the ground beneath your feet 
(No, no, no) But oh, it turns you inside out Repeating that it’s only skin deep You’re falling apart and can’t figure out What happened to the ground beneath your feet It turns you inside out, I looked but I could not believe We’re falling apart without a doubt As we melt into the ground beneath our feet

Half the time I feel like an Automaton moving from one Sensation down the line Nothing is too loud, too fast, Floating by it never lasts I lost time If I make myself fall apart Sift through the wreck and restart my heart Give everything I have as it drags me down, Kicking and screaming all the while, Thinking of leaving for something else this time But I could not get it out of my mind I could not escape my mind There’s always some new advent The next significant event that will save me I reach my grand epiphany When the world reveals itself to me And slowly, my memory Starts breaking down From my bed I look all around As new faces confer grace and I sink down Kicking and screaming all the while Thinking of clawing my way back in this time From the haze that makes me lose my mind But I could not escape my mind From thoughts of the end I always dream of The only end I’ve ever wanted all this time When our bodies start to die Do we ever feel more alive? Push me mute me punch me hate me shove me shoot me Anything to let me feel your scorn Hold me lift me touch me love me fuck me hug me Anything to let me feel reborn Years and years go by All I’ve got is my aging mind But I snap back to life when I start sinking down Kicking and screaming all the while Thinking of leaving for something else this time From the haze that makes me lose my mind But I could not escape my mind From thoughts of the end I always dream of The only end I’ve ever wanted all this time When our bodies start to die Do we ever feel more alive?

“That’s not what a doorbell looks like You imbecile. You fucking idiot. Are you sure you’re ready to see the world?” Living and learning and learning and learning and learning I’ve had too many lessons lately There’s no way I’m going to remember any of this I know I’m gonna forget what you just told me I’ve met so many goddamn people And they’re all becoming the same goddamn person Or am I just seeing them all the same way? Is it me? Couldn’t be It’s just a great big ugly mess At best Hard to believe that all these fuckups Are just part of the process When you’re next To get depressed Thought that I knew something better Turns out we’re just like all the rest I would like a retreat now I’m normally a pretty happy person Oh but the world around me Is bringing me down So lift me up from the malaise Take me away When the walls start closing in Show me that it was all fake As you sway Through the haze And when I’ve finally got it figured out You tell me nothing gold can stay (Oh no)

It used to be my life was set Everyone I met gave me alcohol and cigarettes The saving grace of shifting attention Problems are from other dimensions Can it wait? Oh, no I can’t hold on Another second more Can it wait? Oh, no I can’t hold on Any longer Turn out the lights Can’t breathe, can’t fight It kicks doors down Wraps itself all around me No use asking How this could happen We’re tied to everything— It’s suffocating me At the party, I At the party, I At the party I left my body The center of everything Everyone looking at me And suddenly I can’t breathe Can it wait? Oh, no I can’t hold on Another second more Can it wait? Oh, no I can’t hold on Any longer Turn out the lights Can’t breathe, can’t fight It kicks doors down Wraps itself all around me No use asking How this could happen We’re tied to everything— It’s suffocating me (No no no no no) Spoken: (At the center of the party you can leave and leave your body but it’s coming down it’s coming down it’s knocking on your door) Turn out the lights Can’t breathe, can’t fight It kicks doors down Wraps itself all around me No use asking— How could this happen? We’re tied to everything— It’s suffocating me Oh no, it can’t wait
