Track Name: Fizz Pop
Pause a second
Rewind that
Did you get that feeling...
Or was it just my imagination?

I don’t mind the constant barrage of feeling, of feeling left behind
I know yeah I know cause you told me so
Not quite as quiet between you and me
Not quite as quiet as you would have liked it to have been

Pause a second
Rewind that
Did you get that feeling...
Or was it just my imagination?
Track Name: Illusions
Carefully constructed lies in which you seem to rely on
Illusions of permanence have gone and hidden your goodwill and common sense
Of knowing that there’s nowhere else you can go
And that you should be grateful for what they have done
But if you can’t imagine posterity, that nothing will last
Then I wrote this in the future but I’m singing it in the past

Hesitate watching it all go by with just a sigh
Illusions of luxury have gone and made us complacent and wavering
Of knowing that there’s so much more we can do
Not reaching potential that we know we could
If you won’t allow forgiveness and that every day must end
You’ll be breathing this second but the next might be your last

I L L U S I O N S
Track Name: Losing
I don’t feel much of anything these days
Machine parts, dead hearts and false starts
Eat, sleep, work deep, wasting away
I don’t feel much of anything these days

‘Cause I’m losing my faith, in myself anyway
And I’m losing my cares, but who cares anyway
And I’m losing my friends or I’m pushing them away
And I already lost you, like I’m losing me too

I don’t feel much of anything these days
That’s why I’m here and that’s why she went away
Far past the brick and far past the pine
Is where I’ll set up camp and live until I die
Track Name: Bored Games
I know you’ve changed
I know you’ve changed a lot
I didn’t know you changed the locks

You know I’ve changed
You noticed it well
You said you need a heart of gold
The Midas touch
And I’m sorry to disappoint
Track Name: Fortunate Fool
When I first made conscious thoughts I learned life is not fair
And then I was told to get used to it
The world won’t care about your self esteem
Accomplish something before you feel good about yourself
And when the bills came I figured every day is just the same
Putting walls up around us
Proving nothing to nobody
I make a moderate living ‘cause I’m a fortunate fool
Proving nothing to nobody
Track Name: On The Line
Would you lie to me?
I would rather not know
But the unknown scares me
But the wise man wouldn’t yeah he wouldn’t agree

Yeah he’d say put your neck out on the line
Whatever the outcome you’ll be fine
So I hung it out like wet laundry and watched it ripple in the breeze
Like I used to watch you wear that red summer dress with ease
Dressed to impress noone but yourself, no

Would you confide in me
I would really like to know
‘Cause the unknown scares me
But the wise man wouldn’t yeah he wouldn’t agree

Yeah he’d say put your neck out on the line
Whatever the outcome you’ll be fine
Track Name: Not Necessarily Sacred
Although these loved ones feel no pain
Existing as dirt or heavenly plains
Weeping sadness across your cheeks
A different equation after all these weeks
Desperate eyes and fastened boots
This coward stance hardly suits

Even though you said you’ve been there, it really doesn’t matter
It’s one of the best reasons to make mistakes, if you’re keeping track of that
Oh god what lessons have I learned?

Rules are not necessarily sacred

Feeling sorry for yourself it’s a lack of dignity
Drinking to kill you
Ohh god wash away the dust of everyday life

Rules are not necessarily sacred
Track Name: Hum
Some kind of stranger walking down this long dirt path
How did they find us here?
From the fires radiance features emerge from the cold, dark night
I ain’t losing sleep over this
From the earliest light of the day fog rolls in and is here to stay
I cannot get rid of these poison thoughts in my mind
Can imagine you falling right off that goddamn cliff
There may be water below but I just happen to know
You won’t survive

I was born in the great plains but couldn’t live without the salt in the air
How did they find us here?
We’re together to get her and I don’t know if you know but you’re my ace of hearts
I ain’t losing this
Even though I see you stand right there in front of me
And you go about your day ever so regularly
I am not fine, losing my mind
‘Cause you’re not alive
Track Name: Trust In The Gamble
On the first warm day of spring I watch everything
Go on downtown; hustle and bustle
Gotta be somewhere, gotta meet somebody
Always got to seem like you’re doing something

I’ve checked between every blade of grass in the yard
But there wasn’t a single four-leafed clover in sight

Satisfied and unemployed, it’s invigorating
To control what you enjoy but there’s always
Two faces to the coin so cross your fingers
And hope you don’t get the short end of the stick

I’ve checked between every blade of grass in the yard
And there wasn’t a trace or I’ve hidden it from sight

Maybe now lucks with me, take a roll of the dice
Don’t dream of spiders and I won’t of snake eyes
Lay your cards flat on the table, trust in the gamble
Someone had to invent the concept of winning and losing

I’ve checked between all the lint in my pockets and there was some change
Making music to every step that I take
Track Name: Mind Reader
You must know, you must know!
Where they keep the dead bodies
Underground or in the trees?
You must know, you must know
But you didn’t get quite to me

How did this get out of hand?
I ain’t no mind reader!
And everybody's looking at your dirty fingernails
And your palm says you’ve been lying
I ain’t no mind reader!
I’ll never let ya get quite to me
Track Name: Wolfshark
Wolfshark you know who you are
Mouth full of teeth, looking for a treat
But I won’t let it be me
Begone you foul beast the demons need not be released
So store it for a later day and be on your way

Wolfshark can you see your reflection on the wall?
And it’s so obvious who you prey upon
Under fin, fur and fang
But I won’t let it be me
Begone you foul beast the demons need not be released
So store it for a later day and be on your way

Wolfshark yeah she, she only attacks in the dark
Track Name: Paisley Days
These paisley days they come and go in hazy waves as you know
If you don’t dare to grow up to the sky just like everything
reaching for the sun but casting shadows down below

You’re the keeper of your soul
Been said a thousand times before
You reap what you sow
Let the hunger of the chase
Last until the wicks end
After you’ve said your piece or none at all

These thoughts collide to capture a moment in time
never from the upper
But the streets down below

These paisley days, they come and go

You’re the keeper of your soul
Been said a thousand times before
You reap what you sow
Let the hunger of the chase
Last until the wicks end
After you’ve said your piece or none at all

Below below below below streets down below
