Bearclaw 03:00
We’ve broken through before We know the truth We’re looking through the walls We don’t need more proof I’m completely unraveled I’ve been out in the rain I hope to God I never See a storm like that again You gave me your diamonds You’ve given me your rash But I want more than poison oak And a million bucks in cash The music calls to you And it knows your name It tells you everything Before the mailman came I found me a letter It came out of the trash It turned my eyes to liquid And my questions into ash I’m completely unraveled I’ve been out in the rain I hope to God I never See a storm like that again You fed me your bacon You’ve given me your sweets But I need more than bearclaws And a plate of breakfast meats Now you gave me your diamonds You’ve given me your rash But I want more than poison oak And a million bucks in cash

I see the traces of the bloodless revolution In every face I see the agent of evolution With God as man, woman as God And all are loving Know we are free and we can see Don’t need no Bausch & Lomb And it’s true that we don’t have no teeth And it’s true that we don’t have no arms And it’s you hiding just underneath All the tricks and jokes you don’t need at all If every hour of every day is your creation Why do you sit there lost in boredom and stagnation? The seeds of doubt inside my mind that have been planted Are neither good nor bad nor useless They are stepping stones And it’s true that we don’t have no teeth And it’s true that we don’t have no arms And it’s you hiding just underneath All the tricks and jokes that feed your lies Lies Embroidered with the mark of the beast Lies, lies Exploding right in front of your eyes See your lies And it’s true that we don’t have no teeth And it’s true that we don’t have no arms And it’s you hiding just underneath All the tricks and jokes that feed your lies Lies Embroidered with the mark of the beast Lies, lies Rising with the sun in the east Lies, lies You’re stripping away every disguise When you see your lies

Ugly people have more to prove Ugly people have more to prove Than the rest of the world Than the rest of the world And believe me you’re no beauty queen Believe me you’re no beauty queen No, not at all You’ve got an attitude I know you’re thinking that you got the right Your face is carved with regret You can’t remember your own name Cuz I just want to know How it feels to be out of control And I want you to know How it feels to be living in the hole So you’re saying you got more to lose Now you’re thinking you got more to lose Than you ever did before Than you ever, ever did before We put your money on the table, please Just be the monkey that we came to see Or not at all I see you twisting inside I see you unspooling like a ball of twine Don’t you wish sometimes You’d been born somebody else? Cuz I just want to know How it feels to be out of control And I want you to know How it feels to be living in the hole

We Came to see What we don’t believe Stuck in this bleeding moment Popped blisters lead to scars Over all our hearts Coming into slaughter Are you ready for the kill? This is not a warning It’s an avalanche Always cozy Sitting on the fence Well excuse my soul And bless your baby heart Now you feel like dying But in your own defense You’re everything you wanted at all And in this hour of weakness The meekest ones preserve What they don’t pervert Coming into slaughter Are you ready for a thrill? Somehow you’d forgotten You’re on overdraft Always cozy Sitting on the fence Well excuse my soul And bless your baby heart Now you feel like dying But in your own defense You’re everything you wanted at all

Honesty 03:11
In the hour Of my frustration My own creations Have turned on me I am tired I am raw But I’m willing So now Just take me as I am Behind these wounded eyes Is a strange and lucid dream Tell me all you know Just penetrate my mind And help me find the way Back to honesty There’s a power We are receiving The unbelieving Have turned away We are tired We are raw But we’re ready So now Just take me as I am Behind these wounded eyes Is a strange and lucid dream Tell me all you know Just penetrate my mind And help me find the way Back to honesty

Varicose moon Why do you taunt me so? Why do you haunt me So religiously? Up in the sky In a sea made of lead You mess with my head So effortlessly Pools Your light flows in pools In wading are fools Drowning in memories of you Varicose moon You frighten me so You tighten your grip Almost nightly When all are inside Attempting to hide I’ll know that you lied To me
7.
After the collapse We finally broke from the news Were wounded by fate And blinded by the lies of our reviews It’s better for everyone If you don’t close your eyes The letters unsent were read The day you realized That what you wanted Wasn’t what you needed And what you want is Something to believe in Recover your tracks Restore yourself to harmony Remove the old face And pluck out the eyes that don’t see It’s better for everyone If you can hear all voices If what you wanted Wasn’t what you needed And what you want is Something to believe in

You could wash our minds With your velvet tongue Leave a trail behind For the frozen ones But you won’t touch fate Or make a sound Never turn away You made me wrong You made me right And didn’t ever need a hand To paint the silence of the night Would you lay me out Under the summer sun Make the stars rain down On everyone Who has lost their way Who’ve been drowned in the sound Build another face You made me wrong You made me right And didn’t ever need a hand But the silence left a void And made a great idea You made me wrong You made me right And didn’t ever need a hand And when nothing’s as it seems You know we’re only made of dreams And the silence left a void And bent your will to me But the silence left a void And killed this hysteria And the silence left a void And made a great idea We’re not alone

Be My Brain 04:35
Hey I’m going away tonight Cover up a fall from grace Hey You and me are going Out of sight Of this world And its pain Be my brain Don’t go plain Love likes strange Feel again Be my brain Don’t turn away tonight Let your vision fall and fade Open up and close your eyes Are you breathing? Do you bleed? Be my brain Don’t go plain Love likes strange Feel again Be my brain Don’t go away Love to stay Free again Be my brain

And you will find yourself Among the living dead If certain forces Place a pox upon your head Nowhere to run, no way to scream Nowhere to walk Your eyes as red as blood Your face as white as chalk Today is the day Whether you want it or not And if it happened to me too Well you know what I would do I’d take a look at myself Just to find out what it’s like And when you turn away From secrets that you keep You’ll find they infiltrate Your dreams when you’re asleep No way to hide from All the evil things you do You’re staring right at them And they’re looking at you Today is the day Whether you want it or not And if it happened to me too Well you know what I would do I’d take a look at myself Just to find out what it’s like

I was just a number Became the chosen one Soaking in my slumber All the secrets of the sun All across the planet The people do arise Lifted from the prisons That they built behind their eyes And stripped of all disguise We need to get out of here To rebuild our stately home And deliver the promise from the night You swore to keep moving But became mesmerized Unbelievers, frozen in fright I want to meet the angels Of the cosmic resurrection Completely free While they fall deeper into sleep We could build another reality And our minds made us think that we were weak Cause we don’t believe In nothing we can’t hold in our hands All the world’s an aardvark Sifting through the sand Searching for the lost spark Inside our pineal glands Bridge across the chasms Of chaos, death and fear The tintinnabulation of angels in my ears The strangels reappear We need to get out of here To rebuild our stately home And deliver the promise from the night You swore to keep moving But became mesmerized Unbelievers The frozen, the blind I want to meet the angels Of the cosmic resurrection I want to meet the angels Pure hearts and pure intentions I want to peer into the very eye of night While they fall deeper into sleep We could build another reality And our minds make us think that we are weak If we don’t believe In nothing we can’t hold in our hands
