Track Name: The Machine
Alone, together
We'll be alone, whenever
Polarity flips and pushes distance
Fabricated or intrinsic

Alone, together
We'll be alone, remember
Even though we're separated
Doesn't mean it's complicated

Wake up from a deep rest
With my jaw locked and my teeth clenched
Rainfall keeps me company
Clouds reverb a symphony
Of solace for this clouded mental dystrophy

Alone, together
We'll be alone, for better
And when it's time to reunite
We'll flip the switch and spring back tight

Wake up from a deep rest
With my jaw locked and my teeth clenched
Rainfall keeps me company
Clouds reverb a symphony
Of solace for this clouded mental dystrophy

Once you’ve got it then you’ve got to let it go
Once you’ve got it then you’ve got to let it go
Once you’ve got it then you’ve got to let it go
Once you’ve got it then you’ve got to let it go
Once you’ve got it then you’ve got to let it go
Once you’ve got it then you’ve got to let it go
Once you’ve got it then you’ve got to let it go
Once you’ve got it then you’ve got to let it go
Once you’ve got it then you’ve got to let it go
Once you’ve got it then you’ve got to let it go
Once you’ve got it then you’ve got to let it go
Once you’ve got it then you’ve got to let it go
Once you’ve got it then you’ve got to let it go

Wake up from a deep rest
With my jaw locked and my teeth clenched
Rainfall keeps me company
Clouds reverb a symphony
Of solace for this clouded mental dystrophy
Track Name: Tunnels
This is a moment of coincidence
Courtesy of everything
Electromotive common interest
Brought us together today

We descend under the sand
Beneath the water and debris
And though the lighting could be better
You look good to me

Your wandering eyes say
You’re looking for something new
You wrap yourself in paint and feathers
All eyes are on you

We descend under the sand
Beneath the water and debris
And though the lighting could be better
You look good to me

Grinding steel brings us to a stop
Sliding doors fall apart
We walk in opposite directions
With our parallel thoughts

We descend under the sand
Beneath the water and debris
And though the lighting could be better
You look good to me
Track Name: Cities
We took gardens for granted
the smell of wet dirt
mashed in the seams of our hands
The city grows patches of plastic
imported from far away lands

The city lights pull me like taffy
sleepwalking memories drafty
The bell tolls five before I crack my lids
the yolk scrambles inverted parentheses

Dynamite and fire blast bone
The wind and water's fury smooth stone
That's why we made the cities our home
Our home, That's why we made the cities our home

We opened our eyes as the axis tilted
The seasons stopped, the flowers wilted
Wind blew money from our pockets
Feathers from the trees
And the words on the tv didn't mean anything

Dynamite and fire blast bone
The wind and water's fury smooth stone
That's why we made the cities our home
Our home, That's why we made the cities our home

That's why we made the cities our home
Track Name: Too Close to Call
You thought I was the devil
So you made me invisible
With the swipe of your wand I disappeared
With the swipe of your wand I'm gone

Maybe we should think twice
Before we know what we don’t
Maybe we could try a little harder
You and I have been through low and oh so high

What was I thinking?
What was I thinking?
What was I thinking?
What was I thinking?

You thought you knew what was best
A catastrophic thump to my chest
Doctors said I would recover
The sting would migrate from the surface of my chest
To the depths of my mind

Maybe we should think twice
Before we know what we don’t
Maybe we could try a little harder
You and I have been through low and oh so high
Track Name: Thin Skin
My surface tension bends swimming in your turbulence
You rub my skin so thin you put me in the loony bin
You make me stoned

In humid under-cover slipping, sticking under-lover
Gasping breath, fingers cling, pendulating snapping springs
You make me stoned

You caught me off guard
And wrapped me in thin skin
You took apart my wall
Replaced it with thin skin

The smoothness of you fingers only rivaled by your blood stunned glove
I'm radioactive and i can't get enough
You make me stoned

You caught me off guard
And wrapped me in thin skin
You took apart my wall
Replaced it with thin skin

You caught me off guard
Wrapped me in thin skin
You took apart my wall
Replaced it with thin skin
Track Name: Neon Tetras
Don't be afraid
We'll get through this together
Neon tetras in a tank
Find safety in numbers

Don't hide your face
We'll get through this together
A pause from the feature
For this humble announcement

Don't be afraid
We'll get through this together
Go for a dream and put your
Pieces back together

Invaders permeated inner layers
And you're forced to fight
All the odds are yours
You'll come back stronger than before

The bloody treason
Falters and crumbles
Infiltration so bright
Shining through to the other side

Invaders permeated inner layers
And you're forced to fight
All the odds are yours
You’ll come back stronger than before
Track Name: Scenarios in Stereo
It’s time to pack it up
And hit the road
I’d love to take you all
I’d love to take you all in tow

You’ve been swimming around my neurons for so long
Even though I’m going to be gone
I’ll still be
I’ll still be thinking of you

I wish you could hear
Scenarios in stereo
The stories that play in my head on repeat
As I lay down and close my eyes

Don’t look so sad we’ll be together again
Communication is easy we’ll be Internet friends
Until when
Until when I see you again

I wish you could hear
Scenarios in stereo
The stories that play in my head on repeat
As I lay down and close my eyes
Track Name: Patience
I didn't know, I didn't know, I didn't know how to talk
So I sang and I banged on the mattress for the lonliness to stop
Light came in, the monsters fled for the dark
And left me sleeping to the beat of a loving heart

I didn't know, I didn't know, I didn't know how to walk
So I crawled on the floor in my onsie like a breathing mop
Dad came in, picked me up from the ground
Took me in his arms, showed me all of the town

I'm not scared to grow up
But i am afraid to die
I'm gonna take my time
I'm gonna take my time
I'm gonna take my time
I'm gonna take my time

I didn't know, I didn't know, I didn't know how to read
I liked the scenes in the pictures, the words didn't matter to me
Teacher said, “Son, you've gotta know what they mean
Read the writing on the wall, learn you A B C’s.”

I didn't know, I didn't know, I didn't know how to rock
So I dropped out of school, spent my time with Yankee Hotel Foxtrot
When the record was finished, the player kept running
My finger tips grew tough, lips hum-humming

I'm not scared to grow up
But i am afraid to die
I'm gonna take my time
I'm gonna take my time
I'm gonna take my time
I'm gonna take my time

I didn't know, I didn't know, I didn't know how to die
So i pulled a sheet over my head, held my breath and closed my eyes
Track Name: Head Rush
Checkerboards overflow your rods and cones
A blurry vision
Deaf to the world and a deafening heart
Has drained your brain

Sudden drops slow the rate of speeding time
In compensation for gravity
Physical meets extra-sensory
Bounce and shake and shock absorb
You can’t turn off your circuit board
You can’t turn off your circuit board
You can’t turn it off

Head rush, you’re falling up, you’re falling up
Your feet are summer pools
Veins have given up
Head rush, you’re falling up, you’re falling up
You need a bear hug
You’ve gotta pump it around

And it follows you back again

And it follows you back again

And it follows you back again
And it follows you back again
And it follows you back again
And it follows you back again
Track Name: Anonymous
Tip toes step in unison
Can't tell how many they are
Whispers plotting selfishly
The birth and life of love

They haven't heard their voices in 16 hours
Can't tell the tones apart
They lean against the outside breeze
Instead feel with their hearts

Contrary to dimensional restrictions
The laws of physical space
Our rigidly square counterparts
Hold more weight

Nobody taught them, nobody told them how
Nobody taught them, nobody told them how

There's been an error in the architecture
The bytes are biting back
The status quo will stand no more
Anonymous attacks

Nobody taught us, nobody told us how
Nobody taught us, nobody told us how

Nobody taught us, nobody told us how
Nobody taught us, nobody told us how
Nobody taught us, nobody told us how
Nobody taught us, nobody told us how
Nobody taught us, nobody told us how
Nobody taught us, nobody told us how
Nobody taught us, nobody told us how
Nobody taught us, nobody told us how
Nobody taught us, nobody told us how

But we learned on our own
And nobody can stop us now
