Track Name: Existential Lullaby
I don’t know
Sure is fun to think about though
I can’t say
Could it be I was born to be this way
Track Name: Escape
Everybody's thinking bout what they're gonna say
Not everybody's saying what they're thinking bout

I want out

Can I get an escape
If not for the day
I'd take even an hour or two
Hey, can you give me a break
I've been slaving away
Ever since I was 22

Everybody's thinking bout what they're gonna say
How to say it how to play it how to spin it their way
Not everybody's saying what they're thinking bout
Me some reason, I prefer to shout

I want out
Can I get an escape
If not for the day
I'd take even an hour or two
Hey, can you give me a break
I've been slaving away
Ever since I was 22
Track Name: I Am
I dress
More or less the same
My friends
Still call me by my name
I guess
The scene hasn't changed
Is it the way I look at it?
Or did I finally slip?

I am
Walking hand in hand
With my pineal gland
You can't understand until you know
Can't say until you go
Can't say

Cosmic choirs I can hear
Singing right between my ears
Call calmly to appreciate my years
Let go of all that fear
Let go of all that fear

Smoking DMT
Is a fine pass time if you ask me
So blind but now I see the start
The fabric torn apart
Life is like a work of art

Cosmic choirs I can hear
Singing right between my ears
Call calmly to appreciate my years
Let go of all that fear
Let go of all that fear

I'm the same I'm someone else
Since I forgot about myself
Humming along with humanity
Just a leaf on a tree
This incarnation of a being
This moment and the song I sing

I am
Track Name: Acoustic Kool Aid Test
Feeling kinda funny drinking electric kool aid
I got off the bus but man I wish I woulda stayed
Now all the lights are flaring up like some grand arcade
And barriers are breaking down inside of my brain

Thinking too much on collective subconsciousness
Creeping neath the speakers wondering if I even exist
It started with a dance and it ended with a kiss
She asked me I ever had the pleasure of meeting her friend Sid

No one seems to know us as we roll on by
Sunglasses hiding my bloodshot eyes

Going to the party even though it’s a school night
I’m feeling kinda strange at the same time kinda alright
The room explodes all life exposed inside

No one seems to notice as we roll on by
Somebody somewhere must surely know I’m
High

Getting chills from my toes to my third eye
Brand new, newly decalcified
Bye bye normal life hello new light

You’ve arrived right on time
The road unwinds and paths intertwine
Parallel lines divide with time
They meet back on the other side

Trip of a lifetime
Track Name: XodaraparadoX
East and West
South and North
Best and Worst
Less and More

Looks a lil greener
On the other side
Looks a lil greener
On the other side

Dark and Light
Bright and Dim
Day and Night
Her and Him

Look a lil closer
There's two sides to the coin
Look a lil closer
There's two sides to every story

Summer and Winter
Spring and Fall
Come and Go
None and All
One and All

Look a lil closer
There's nothing to see
Look a lil closer
Nothing is everything

Damned if ya don't
Damned if ya do
Livin lil lives in our own catch 22s
Livin lil lives in our catch 22s
Track Name: Something, Something, Something
Got stoned
Went to the cemetery
Getting by
But it's cash and carry
Life can get a little scary
Every once in a while

Got home
Put on Tom and Jerry
Getting high
But I'm not feeling lazy

Something Something Something
Something Something I forgot
Something Something Something
Something SomethingI am not

Got my own
But we still all share it
Getting love
And I can't help but wear it
In a smile and some cheesy words I try to avoid
Whenever I heard others say them I'd get annoyed
But that was when I was man I'm back to being a boy
WooHoo

Something Something Something
Something Something I forgot
Something Something Something
Something Something I am not
Something Something Something
Something Something I forget
Something Something Something
Something hasn’t happened yet

Got some
That's enough for me
Getting more
No I still can't see
How we're ever ever ever
Gonna get over the greed
And how does want always wins out over need?
How can I expect anyone else to see
Like me?
Track Name: Headed Home
I sat silhouette under a red street light
Close to daylight on my motor bike
And my weight wasn’t enough to make the signal change
So I sat for a single minute and thought about my day

But all I really wanted to do was go straight
And it threw me into such a miniature fit of rage
That someone else had control over decisions I make
And the time spent there waiting for the light to change shades

I can’t remember how long I’ve been this way
I don’t believe in god like that but I’ve got faith in fate
I’ve been trying to learn patience but I’m afraid it’ll have to wait

When I get home I’m gonna roll myself a joint
It’s been a long day of work and I’m a tired, tired boy
This bag I got don’t cost me but a coin
But then again it’s not hard to think ya man, what’s the point

It’s such a waste of money
Aw but money’s such a waste
Of our time
And our taste
Of the priceless things we chase
Of our simple lives and all of our ambition

The light turns green and I’m back to heading north
On an empty street and so on and so forth
And as I turn on my blinker I wonder who it is I’m signaling to
But I’m too distracted to care, cus my day is almost through
Track Name: After
Was it a dream
What does it mean
Could I have seen the things I think I’ve seen
Bright bursts of light
Stranger than sight
Spin infinitely in my body my mind

What did I find?

Deeper ya go
More that you know
Limitless as my fingertips the world is mine to mold (molt?)

Such a sight to behold
To be held
When all the walls fell

Once you’ve returned
What have you learned
It’s okay if you can’t put it into words
Now that ya know
Where will it go
Seems these questions never cease to burn

Feel the wheels turn
Track Name: Existential Lullaby
I don’t know
Sure is fun to think about though
I can’t say
Feels like I was born to be this way

i can't quit
Didn't even have to try to write this
Just keeps pouring out my mouth
Once tried to turn it on now I
Can't keep it from coming it out

How is life?
Livin back in black and white
I miss my ignorant bliss
Oh
Awareness

What is worse
What good is any gift if it ain't
Just at least a little bit cursed

Where's it go
I don't know
I don’t know
I don’t know
