laying down dreaming on a bed of earth betting that you wouldn't make awhile my worth waiting out seasons just to see who's first the devil or the average avid cheater beaten down sunning under dipper's stars eating at a blunder that just can't be far sneaking 'round, tripping up a simple start feeding on the frenzy of a million hearts ready for the elevated part offense/defense depending on critical senses of a shut-in cut-in between one survivor and the one to win staring down evil through the eyes of pan caring about as much as anybody can making moves, breaking laws and taking stands against the highest powers in the land against the brightest coward at his blandest offense/defense depending on critical senses of a shut-in cut-in between one survivor and the one to win

Blues Driven 03:06
we could use another jolt here but we can't afford the battery well welcome to the family they're no good no doubt without fear not too bad for former human beings who'd die before they all came clean what if all along you saw it coming on but got dropped off too soon now all day long you're driven by a sense of the blues that isn't shaking you the blues they won't shake you we can see your demons clearly and we'll raise 'em one when they appear the time to fold is growing near what if all along you saw it coming on but got dropped off too soon now all day long you're driven by a sense of the blues that isn't shaking you the blues they won't shake you when all you know won't take you higher you have to sell your soul to a different buyer didn't kill you so you're stronger as well as golden with a shiny sheen to blind us all from who you mean to be

hit the nail on the head curse the day you wished me dead i'm awake to your charms with permission to bear arms feeling guilty had enough? within reason, without love it's a gas, silver blue spilling through i wouldn't wish you on my enemies i'll hold your little secrets under lock and key they make it wonderful when you're so uncomfortable so i'm giving up on misery match the name without the face i'm one thought you can't erase sitting back, the feeling broods make or break, it's up to you running chaos on your own practice preaching what you're told take us on, fake some rules play it cool i wouldn't wish you on my enemies i'll hold your little secrets under lock and key they make it wonderful when you're so uncomfortable so i'm giving up on misery for the love of company

Somedaze 02:00
some days you feel like droppin' the sky and some days you feel like bliss and some days start up with brushes with death and everybody knows death doesn't quit some days you'll wrestle with freedom some days might rupture your heart but someday you'll realize you need the days to feel the nights and no day is finalized without a little fight someday, everyday you know tomorrow will always be the best day of your life some days you feel like beating the gods and some days you own up and split and some days end slightly bigger than life and then of course you have to dwell on it some days you'll wrestle with freedom some days might rupture your heart but someday you'll realize you need the days to feel the nights and no day is finalized without a little fight someday, everyday you know tomorrow will always be the best day of your life some days you'll wrestle with freedom some days might rupture your heart one day you'll open your eyes and adjust to the dark someday you'll realize you need the days to feel the nights and no day is finalized without a little fight someday you'll see the prize and realize it's still a day away, everyday you know tomorrow will always be the best day of your life

Duespaying 02:06
you can't escape it if it's all you know hit the pavement she's bound to blow keep skating watch the glow why are you waiting for something to flow? nothing flows pay all your dues you're just playing to lose until you mean it i'm in a state feeling awful and great why can't you mean it? the revelation refused to show it's overrated just so you know he's gone lower than low should go the boy's jaded but he loves you so he loves you so pay all your dues you're just digging for clues until you mean it color me wired and insane growing tired of the meaning how much pain does it take til the last of the dues gets paid? just like the devil himself would say it's such a waste pay all your dues til you stray from the truth and find the meaning when the plot hits a twist and the shock isn't missed you'll get your meaning riding the fence only when it's available everyone's tense and nothing's original stop making sense it's your only defense this time i mean it

blast loud heard by the mass crowd mixing with the storm clouds bringing the rain is there any consolation? give it a rest we're not giving it up right yet headstrong taking it all wrong listen to the swan songs they're always right an all expenses paid trip you and a friend you're all that matters so i want to skip it to the end promise the world i promise little girl through the spasms and swirls to get the record straight if you can wait i'll promise the world to you hard pressed given the true test i would never have guessed everyone knows reality's a death trap get in the van you're lonely spinning while i'm doing everything i can promise the world i promise little girl through the spasms and swirls to get the record straight if you can wait i'll promise the world to you

Angelesque 02:57
if you can't say anything don't say anything good your hearing's heavenly but you only hear what you should and you should... avoid all voices until you know what the choice is make a lot of noise make it loud as hell put the revolutionaries in a spell now the happy medium is dead i'll be angelesque if i'm nominated have another suckerpunch on the house it'll be a blast, it'll knock you out you'll find solace, i'll find peace i'll be angelesque if you nominate me it's so impossible stuck to a hospital bed you might try innocence but there’s no difference, you said and you said... to blind the system keep your eyes on the victim make a lot of noise make it loud as hell put the revolutionaries in a spell now the happy medium is dead i'll be angelesque if i'm nominated have another suckerpunch on the house it'll be a blast, it'll knock you out you'll find solace, i'll find peace i'll be angelesque if you nominate me say a little prayer tonight we're not feeling right on say it loud and clear i need to hear your siren song say a little prayer tonight i'm not feeling right on say it short and sweet i need to speed this thing along

there's no time like the present with a heyday in the past there's no future in it even if the influences last what the hell is the problem with going out in style? i didn't mean to smile the devil made me do it it's not me (don't look at me) there's no place like the gutter for unsanitary minds every word ever muttered so disturbingly divine i can see revolution 'round the corner of my eye i didn't mean to lie the devil made me do it it's not me (don't look at me) deception is just seeing without depth perception the secrets are losing reception we need no redemption we've got our own way out it's always in the first place you look it's the oldest excuse in the book let it go, because you know you aint got nothing on my soul my alibi is gold the devil made me do it it's not me (don't look at me)

Mercy 03:19
pull yourself together time to slow it up the sad nasty weather is enough to shock the senses into submission the punishment is endless and the signs just point and run the future is key but the past has a lock on me i got a feeling that soon mercy is gonna let me be set me free let me be good day for trying to release the gloom no need for violence when you're doomed to meet the morning with a crooked toon then without a warning make it on time to the moon the future is key but the past has a lock on me i got a feeling that soon mercy is going to let me be set me free let me be could you dumb it down a bit? could you do it soon? if you dumb it down a bit then i can make my move would you get me out of this? would you do it soon? if you get me out of this then i'll know what to do

baby new year could you promise a day without fear if i swear not to do my time soon? little cupid at the risk of remaining stupid does it make any sense to be all too intense leaning on the fence? i can't take this suspense baby blue can't you tell the whole operation is doomed? maybe next time we'll drop out of line and stop from running more final laps we're sure to collapse every time fallen savior are you out yet on good behavior? did you make your mistakes? what the press call the breaks we know what it takes feelin' good for goodness sakes baby blue can't you tell the whole operation is doomed? maybe next time we'll drop out of line and stop from running more final laps we're sure to collapse every time the higher they climb the farther you fall it's not alarming to anyone involved they all know tomorrow you'll be back to beg grift, steal and borrow baby blue can't you tell the whole operation is doomed? maybe next time we'll drop out of line and stop from running more final laps we're sure to collapse and you can’t read the map 'cause you lost it sure to collapse into lapse after lapse 'cause you can't see the traps 'til you've lost it
