Forget 02:36
You've been too long undercover time to brush away the clutter paint it all your favorite color and bask in the glow Consequence could come and bite you in the ass Why does such a good time have to hurt so bad? That's the price you pay Searching for the key to unlock all your potential when you don't know what you think But what you think you know is only your opinion Soon as I make up my mind, I'll be all set Maybe start chipping away at all this debt Stop regretting things that haven't happened yet 'cause you never know
2.
Lazuli 05:42
I saw something new, but no one will believe me Until it has a name, none of them can see it Of course I know the water isn't really blue it's just reflecting the color of the sky And I know the sky doesn't have a hue either it's just the way the atmosphere bends the light It's bending the light You don't have a clue but you fake it so well
3.
Disposable 03:42
It seems you've grown quite accustomed to your lifestyle You like to think that you own the whole world But you can't buy your way out this time You can't buy your way out Watch your castle crumble all around you Just because you want more than you can handle Your obsession weighs you down You're disposable now Wanting more You want to rush your way through the whole process Another notch on your conquest belt It will present itself in time If you'd only let it Watch your castle crumble all around you Just because you want more than you can handle Disposable culture Blatant disregard for the future You're disposable You like to think that you own the whole world

Mush 03:42
I sorely recall who lost the bet Though I knew that the cards were stacked against you Hold on, we're not out of the woods just yet And the sun's about to set They'd like us to blindly follow them like sheep They want us to bow down and believe Well... I'll take no part I won't partake I will climb the wall I will prove them all wrong I will see it through And make my point to confuse you I sorely recall who lost the bet I don't want to have to know what happens next

Knotweed 03:15
You just keep sprouting up You return even though I dug you right up by the roots Invasive foliage I wage an all-out war You've clearly overstepped the boundary Can't eradicate you You're so damn resilient I tried to smother you And I tried chemicals You foil all of my attempts You just keep sprouting up You return even though I dug you right up by the roots Can't eradicate you You're so damn resilient

Nobody's better at missing the point If you want disappointment, I won't disappoint Everyday situation, I'm ten steps ahead Tangle everyone's motives inside of my head I just assumed that you were only blowing smoke I thought that I knew the punchline to your joke You always seemed so disconnected when we spoke I was probably wrong Sometimes my mind gets carried away I imagine scenarios that never could be and regard them as fate written clear as day I'm surprised if something else happens to me I thought that you were only sober when you smoke I thought that I was the whiskey to your Coke You always seemed so disconnected when we spoke I was probably wrong I thought that it should just all go up in smoke I hoped that I might prove it all to be a hoax You always seemed so disconnected when we spoke I was probably wrong
7.
A dying world A dying race Imprisoned within themselves Selfishly clutching his scepter he implodes on his deathbed and turns to dust right before their eyes Two new contenders vie for the title Slaves haul in the ceremonial stone Swing their swords at it one by one With one devastating strike a smoldering chunk breaks free The victor proudly assumes his role They banish the loser and strip his robes He goes off in search of last remaining ones Can heal them all with the aligning suns
8.
Dedicate my life's work to my memory of her precious Agnes, sweet sixteen Left me at the altar, never love another One cannot replace a queen And I will operate in only darkness I never want to have to see the sunlight And I won't ever tell you how I did it I'd rather let my secrets all die with me I specialize in doing that which they say can't be done Take a look at all that I've accomplished on my own First I lift the stone and then I try and lift it higher It's easy if you know how but learning will require Better understanding of gravity and levers Magnet repels just as much as it attracts There's much that they've yet let to learn Ten-ton stone will guard the castle but with just one little push and it'll turn
9.
Hush Money 02:49
I suspend my own safety for your ruin We have the right to know the scope of what you're doing Gone astray, you were only meant to serve the greater good Never face the music, though I wish you would Camera's rolling Pay 'em off/Shut 'em up Everybody's gonna take your side Smile wide Hush money Hush money You never face the music, but I wish you would

Long ago the monster would hunt here Seldom few could withstand the power of it At the time it seemed it would never weaken But like all things it finally fell Time will never heal them all Even as it forms the scabs, it's tearing them open again The answers are incomplete - loose ends you'll never tie The questions are obsolete Fossils speak more truth than the present But you weren't paying attention, were you? Looked the other way at a crucial moment And somehow missed the action as it unfolded Now you're trying to piece it together But the puzzle's missing some pieces Should have kept at least one eye on the target Should have kept at least one eye on
11.
I can't wait for you to be blindsided It'll hit when you least expect Dive-bombing out of the blue Like a story that could never be true It will envelop, it will engulf, entirely No! It won't stop! Your best bet is to just accept it A warm welcome as it explodes There's no hope of getting out of the way The kind of fury that can never be tamed It will envelop, it will engulf, entirely No! It won't stop! We are ancient clinging to ideals the world forgot I keep hoping for a return to form And I know I'm not alone

Olympus Mons 05:55
One of these days I'll write some words I was so bummed out Another Olympus Mons
