Track Name: Hello
Hello
I am of planet Earth
For what it's worth

I am sorry
No one else could be here with me

So what
Will you do with yourself
Can I help?

I've been set free
Of the bonds of my own history
So you can see
I am able, willing, ready
Track Name: We of the Whips
We of the whips
We walked the plank
Of passing ships
Watched as they sank

Gripped the side of the tinsel tide
And fried

Tumbling down
Ten thousand leagues
We refused to drown
And siphoned the sea

Gripped the side of the tinsel tide
And fried
Track Name: Bottle
If I sail away
I'll leave a bottle
Won't know what to say
Cause words mean nothing
I don't need goodbyes
Now do I

Sometimes I need to know
What shade I bleed
If it shows

I'll make my escape
As bombs are falling
I'll stay in good shape
By cleaning rubble
Toddler arms for tools
Sampling stool

Sometimes I need to know
What shade I bleed
If it shows

Does it show
Track Name: Lightning Storm
Lightning storm in these four walls
Synapse fire of desire
If we have a second's chance
We will rise up so much higher
So much higher

Count one to ten before losing your head
It's said
Following friends off the ledge
Till the end

Out with old and in with new
Real accounting we must make
For mistakes we have made
Give up pretense, clean the slate
Clean the slate

Count one to ten before losing your head
It's said
Following friends off the ledge
Till the end
Track Name: The Old Man
The old man watched
When I came out
My legs grew long
I hit the ground
And that old man
Did shake and frown

The old man took
Me to a dock
He said "good luck"
And pushed me off
Around my neck
A concrete block

Wouldn't mind if I could find a way to mend a home
It's not fair, but I don't care about that antique throne

The old man coughed
A bitter lung
I said "hey man
Cat got your tongue"
And that old man
Himself he hung
