Track Name: Futility
fuck your wars
and all that you stand for
seventh wonder why
we even try
anymore

my platitudes
seem so rude
in mixed company
and I'm trying hard not to offend
but
I'm at my wits end
with what to do
it's no use
tie the noose
and kick it out from under

oh give it up
give it up
give it up
give it up
give it up
already

they've got a box around you
they tell you what to do
they've got their chains around you
they tell you what to do

give you directions
on how when and who to love
give you a credit limit
force you to go above

it's so useless
to try and fight it
it's so futile
to try and fight it
Track Name: Delusions
you're institutional
but I'm delusional
you've got them all on your side
but you're deep within your mind
trying hard not to find
the place inside
where your sense of self
collides with
the lies you tell yourself
if only for better health
I understand
we can't all stand outside
the structures of the mind
but I don't mind
no I don't mind
'cause I'm delusional

you let the days pass you by
watching calmly
let them slide by
your mind's eye
is not on your side
it seems
do you know what I mean?
I thought I left you behind
in a dream

you tell me
I think too highly of myself
I've got a wealth of insecurity
but frankly you're boring me to tears
with all this talk of fears
so come near
and wipe that look on off your face

I'm in the wrong time in the right place
I'm deep within in outer space
can't find my mind to save my face
can't begin to find my place

you're institutional
but I'm delusional
you've got them all on your side
but you're deep within your mind
trying hard not to find
the place inside
where your sense of self
collides with
the lies you tell yourself
if only for better health
I understand
we can't all stand outside
the structures of the mind
but I don't mind
no I don't mind
'cause I'm delusional

oh tell me why
you always
look behind
to divine
your inner psychology
don't you know
what you hold
in your soul
is your future potentiality?

my sense of me
comes mainly from a sea
of change
I'm only held together
in essence
by a name
but it's all the same
it's all the same
it's all the same
to your psychology

my thoughts are diluted
but I've yet to be refuted
while you just stand there
I've got the sense to be aware

you let the days pass you by
watching calmly
let them slide by
your mind's eye
is not on your side
it seems
do you know what I mean?
oh I thought I left you behind
in a dream
Track Name: Dependency
I let you in
under my skin
if you've got something to tell me
just get it out of the way already

I can't stand here forever
I haven't got all day
so if you've got something to say
just get it out of the way already

I let you in
under my skin
can't get you out
of my head

I let you in
under my skin
can't figure out
we're already dead
Track Name: Memory
tracing the lines
between you and I
ingrained in myelin sheathes
pressed into my mind
during sleep
there's no release
there's no release
for me
from you
look at what you do to me
unravel my psyche nightly
memories I'd rather forget
you

I'd rather forget
you

I'd rather forget

I try to figure out the context
of this mess I'm in
begin to unravel the picture
a peculiar mixture
of times gone by
the cracks in my mind give way
Track Name: Loneliness
there's no replacement for it
once it's gone gone away
and you'll be back to where you started
once you've had your way

I would rather forget
what to me you once meant
I would have rather seen you stay
but we both know that you turned away

is this just loneliness I feel
or is this a nostalgic appeal
to that which I used to know
and now regret lying cold in the snow

is this just loneliness I feel
or is this a nostalgic appeal
to that which I used to know
and now regret lying cold in the snow

I would rather forget
what to me you once meant
I would have rather seen you stay
but we both know that you turned away
Track Name: Sedatives
just calm down
you're in no danger now
why so worried?
why so worried, man?

they're only here to help you out
Track Name: Hypnagogia
their diatribe's memetic
it's infected all of your peers
transmitted inside the space
between your laughter and your tears
it's in everything you hear
it's in the water
canon fodder
for the politics of fear
so come near
and listen close
to this ghost
sent down
to drown
the illusions they've been using
to calm you down
that's how they tear you down
social anesthetic
inherited memetics
from past relics
in our present

but this is not what is seems
I'm lying to myself in a dream
hypnagogic memory
distracting me
from the dystopian reality
that exists outside of me
that even I can't see
so come with it now
I wanna hear what you're thinking now
tell me how we're gonna turn it all around
before the walls come crashing down
before the walls come crashing down

I'm half asleep
in the space
my subconscious
keeps clear for me
for thinking
clearly
this is not quite real
yet the appeal is that
it's not quite not
I haven't got
what I've got
through thought
alone
Track Name: Archetypes
an archetype has marked out
what it means to be right
here I'm in the clear
I steer far from near
from the pressure of the one
who's deep within the sun
I'm having fun
and I'm not done
yet
I bet
you're lost
and I'm no better off
which one's the worse for wear
the ignorant or aware?
beware the imitation
consternation from sublimation
existential fascination
an automaton nation
I escape
down that sewer grate
liquid pills popped in
bottles dropped
down the throat
a moat
to keep my language in
the ivory castle
philosopher sits idle
don't let him out
just scream and shout
and feel that beat hit
with your cigarette lit
drink up in my brain
I act insane
it's just a game
it's all the same
it's all the same
oh feel that beat hit

oh feel that beat hit
Track Name: Stimuli
forget the sense of self
you once held
and just unmeld
the unified i

a multiplicity
walks in the city streets
that lie in between
the cracks of my mind

made of the skyscrapers
built of the grey matter
that lies six inches
behind my eyes

stimuli
gets filtered into
truth and lies
black and white

black and white
Track Name: Anxiety
you're thinking in
a singularity
univocal
binary polarity
I see beyond
conceptions of right and wrong
to the place
where plurality belongs

drunk again
stuck in a hazy cloud of toxic mess
lost again
ended up in someone else's bed
fucked up again
broke the vows I never meant to make
sorry again
an anxious mess with no escape
no escape
no escape

you're thinking in
a singularity
univocal
binary polarity
I see beyond
conceptions of right and wrong
to the place
where plurality belongs

drunk again
stuck in a hazy cloud of toxic mess
lost again
ended up in someone else's bed
fucked up again
broke the vows I never meant to make
sorry again
with no way to erase my mistake
my mistake
my mistake

I no longer extol
duplicities and binaries
they implode
and on the whole
the poles collapse
the poles collapse
the poles collapse
Track Name: Hypochondria
it's so easy
when you don't know
what it means
and it's so easy
when all you see
is what it seems
and it's so easy
to just get by
and it's so easy
to live a lie

I do it over and over again

aneurysms
and complications to your plans
heart attacks
set you back
to square one
all over again
don't you know
you're not done yet?
you know
you're not done yet
Track Name: Amnesia
how did we get here anyway?
