Track Name: FUN
Don't want to sneak around you
Just want to be up front with you
Don't watch my every move
Waiting for me to screw up

I admit, you're good at adding
Clenching gold stars
Constant bragging
Yes, you've earned some recognition
But you go about it all wrong

Oh you get yourself so worked up
Think we could just have some fun
Oh the night's still goin' strong
Think we could just have some fun

Take the time to get to know me
I'm more than someone you can boss around
I have talent, innovation
I won't waste it being your bitch

It's not a competition
Yet you seem to make it one
I'll celebrate with you
But will you celebrate with me

Oh you get yourself so worked up
Think we could just have some fun
Oh the night's still goin' strong
Think we could just have some fun
Track Name: Breakup
In all the ways you wanted me
There could not be guarantees
You know, Oh you know

As wonderful as we can be
We’re not as perfect as we seem
You know, Oh you know

Maybe the time is coming to work it out…

The more you wanted me to stay
The more I want to get away
You know, Oh you know

Your quirks that were at first endearing
Have now become so irritating
You know, Oh you know

Maybe the time is coming to work it out…

I’m so tired of where we’re going
Same scenery becomes so boring
I’m too spicy for your bland taste More srirach
leave the mayonnaise

Maybe the time is coming to work it out...
Baby get out
Track Name: Final Exam
I want this time to pass,
But I don’t want time to pass
Grown up-don’t feel more secure
Than I was before

Stored up and filed away
Things I don’t want decayed
But theft and wear and tear
Can destroy what’s there

Here’s looking to better times
Won’t have to dash when dined
Will savor the latest kiss
While sipping “angel piss”

Uncovering the latest mystery
Finding my place in history
The years keep on flying by
Makes you want to cry
Track Name: Song for Alex
Hate is to ignorance
As love's to understanding
Peace is to acceptance
As war's to prejudice

This sharp sense of pain
Is the effect of cutting through
These broken cords of passion
That once lead to my heart

I hear your voice of reason
But you don't understand
So distant you are from me
When I just need a friend
Track Name: Open Veins
I want to open up your veins
I want to watch your blood pour out
I want to hear you scream in pain
I want to hear you hit the ground

You have something I really want
But it's been part of your whole life
Cultural synthesis only lasts
As long as I have benefits

I know what you're goin' through
But there's nothing that you can do
Left evidence will not support your case
Rest assure my life's improved
While yours old friend must start anew
The trend in history will always last

When I secure the upper hand
That's when your system will collapse
Rendered helpless when I attach
Declared hostile when you fight back

I know what you're goin' through
But there's nothing that you can do
Left evidence will not support your case
Rest assure my life's improved
While yours old friend must start anew
The trend in history will always last
Track Name: Life After College
Hey, where are you going?
I’m headed out there too
Mind if I join you? No
These things were meant
For more than you

I got your voicemail
You bombed your job interview
What were these last 5 years of
School supposed to help you do?

Turned into a stepping stone
Scorched in heat
Poured on rainy days
Can’t breath and I’m anchored down
In dirt, I’ve passed my better days
Track Name: Spaceland
You people of Spaceland,
You seem so confident,
In your geometry,
And your perception of what’s fact,
That you’re unable to see,
Past your reality,
To another dimension

Dotland you are your own universe,
Lineland you are but one dimension

I disbelieved existence,
In the life of three dimensions,
A thought you’ll find foolish,
But you may find in it sense,
If you ever stopped,
And wondered of something beyond yourself

My name is A. Square,
Because that is what I am,
I’m telling you from jail,
About my new convictions.
Bout’ how I went from seeing,
North ,East ,West and South,
But never up or down.

My view of the 3rd dimension,
Where you Spacelanders reside,
Is that there must exist,
More than you realize,
For I believed so long,
In only two dimensions,
But we all know there’s more
Track Name: Island Living
What do you hind behind blinds?
So Isolated
You can't just shut out life
It's all around you

If they knew of the messes
Hidden behind blinds
They'd grimace in discuss
Curious eyes evade

The more reclusive I become
The more pain I somehow cause
How do I find trouble
By keeping to myself

Neighbors voices through thin walls
Cat calls when I leave
Can't stand the lack of space
Give me more privacy
Track Name: Ser Un Ave
Everytime I turn and walk away
I know what I should have said instead
Yet I leep on comin' off like a full
Challengin' myself to witty duels

When I've said the things I want to say
It feels like I won the Tour de France
Why can't I be articulate every instance?
Charging uphill against all opponents

Keeping with the Jones give up fun
The work ourselves to early death conundrum
Time's too precise, we're countin' every minute
Money now determines our commitments

No quiero ser un ave en una jaula
Quiero ver el mundo en todo
Aprender los idiomas de otra gente
Libertad de me mis propios cadenas
Track Name: Antibody
I don’t really want to get back together
I don’t really like how it sounds
I don’t really want to get close to anyone
People always let you down

It’s a tingling
It’s a numbness
It’s a falling out of alignment
You’ve got blurry vision
And memory loss
Your body’s turning against you

I don’t really want to get back to business
Things are really goin’ slow
I don’t really want to work hard on anything
When I’ll have nothing to show

It’s a tingling…

No, I’m not ever gonna change my bad habits
Believe me I’ve already tried
No, I’m not ever gonna change my ways for anyone
This is how I’ve learned to survive

It’s a tingling…
Track Name: On the Other Side of the Planet
Woke up today
Sun in my face
Another end
Of nights gone by
Wishing on stars
To see you again

Did we exist
Before we were here
And where will be
When we are gone
Our flesh from our bones
Hope you'll be with me
Track Name: Nomad
Keeping with the simple patterns
Goin' through the day
Same time, same place, trash pickup, architecture

I'm tired of your boring stories
Heard them twice before
Lets get inspired
Lets get out and live in the world

And where is this simple life
And where is this luxury
Of being in the place I want to be
No expectations
Without obligations
Roaming to the place I want to be

I thought that I was quick to grasping
Concepts thrown my way
Only to discover that they're parts of a greater machine

You're worried about my wellbeing
I'm worried about yours too
But what's the point in worrying
when only death can tell the truth

And where is this simple life
And where is this luxury
Of being in the place I want to be
No expectations
Without obligations
Roaming to the place I want to be
