Track Name: Heart
With saddest music all day long

She soothed her secret sorrow

At night she sighed "I fear 'twas wrong

Such cheerful words to borrow.

Dearest, a sweeter, sadder song

I'll sing to thee to-morrow."
Track Name: 153
Do you need me
I've got number 1-5-3 on my back

Do you need me
Cause don't think I won't fight back

Isn't that so
Typical of you


Take this number off me
Let me be my own
Let me be free

Oh I hope
Oh I hope
Oh I hope
That you can hear me

Do you fear me
Driving hooks into your spine

Do you fear me
Play the little game of mine

Take this number off me
Let me be my own
Let me be free

Oh I hope
Oh I hope
Oh I hope
That you can hear me

Oh, can't you hear me
Oh, can't you hear me
Oh, can't you hear me
Track Name: Meteor Strike
5 million and one BC
According to archeology
A meteorite hit earth, killed dinosaurs and caused the world to freeze

England, 15th century
Now rulled under the matriarchy
Ironic a gals in charge
The rest are treat like...

I'm stuck between the lines
Of spiral notebook paper
I'll copy answers
Class isn't worth my time

Give me a textbook
I'll fill the pages that are blank
Repeating histroy
The joke of human kind

Oh, what a shame
It looks like we won't corrected
Guess that we're all to blame

Empty nothings born from habit
Hopes for something better than this
Drop everything run while you can
Carry on, carry on

I'm choose to break out from
The medicority of this
Excuse of human worth
I won't be a statistic

I plan to leave my mark
Give something to inspire them
The people of this earth
Or anyone who cares

Look at that face
I think they might have been insulted
Guess that they know their place

Empty nothings born from habit
Hopes for something better than this
Drop everything run while you can
Carry on, carry on

I refuse to crumble under
All the expectations that were
Set upon by those onlookers
Give me space, give me space

5 million and one A.D.
Who knows what the story then will be
Will humans still be around or will our species have fallen down
Track Name: Throw Away
spend my time
I couldn't throw away for you
Got my pride
little things you could abuse

I'll break you to pieces
Mirror bits shattered on the floor

Soul of stone
Break my paper heard in two
Crack my bones
Bake bread to feed the likes of you

Its so cold
What'll I do

I guess that its up to you


Well I don't make much sense
You're ambivlance and your self indulgence make it clear that you're lost and you're so afraid

But I can't say I care
Cause this is your mess that you made

(I'm sorry)
I'm sorry won't cut it
You're not worth forgiveness anymore

I hope you're happy, you can spend the rest of your miserable life curled up crying on the floor
Track Name: Needles On Tile
Maybe I should feel so lucky
Maybe all this time I wasn't missing
Maybe I can just stay lonely
I promise I can try but I hate this feeling inside

Someday I may find my only
Someday it could be more than I hoped for
Someday I might be so happy
I'll wait until that day, but I've waited so long

Keep me down and keep me quiet
Wasn't that the plan you had all along
Think again I'll make you regret
You chained me to fucking wall, I'll smash it down and make you fall

Its needles on tile that make you feel better. But it doesn't look like they'll help now

Don't you come near me
Don't you come near me
Track Name: Monster
Its been long since that day
You got down on your knees and prayed

You waited for the time to come
I wonder where we went all wrong

The monster's here
Don't look inside me
Don't look inside me

The monster's near
I feel it on me
I feel it on me

The spider legs rise from the sea
Its eye will see the world that be

Its mile steps bring it to shore
To look where earth has left no more

Oceans turned to acid baths
Green fields become dead paths

Power struggles make for sad endings

No grave stones, no more homes
No history books, no tomes

It'll stand guard for the dying world

The monster's here
Don't look inside me
Don't look inside me

The monster's near
I feel it on me
I feel it on me
Track Name: The Tourist
Were it up to me
I wouldn't be abused

You wanna shut me out
I haven't much to lose

You wanna keep my down that's fine
Just make sure to keep me alive

Kinda like a tourist in your mind
I hope you know what you're looking to find

I don't think you like what you see inside me
I don't think you like what you see inside me

I don't feel at home
I don't feel at home
Take myself away from here
I can only hope my mind is clear

Still a little boy
Or when did you get old

I don't have time for games
The world outside is cold

I wanna place where I belong
Where I'm not told my life is wrong

But even if a place were to exist
Would all these problems avoided be fixed

I'll find a place to go where you can't follow
I'll find a place to go where you can't follow

I don't feel at home
I don't feel at home
Take myself away from here
I can only hope my mind is clear

I don't feel at home
I don't feel at home
Take me away from here
Somewhere where my mind can be clear
Track Name: Superhuman
Get up, suit up, you're alive
Time to work from 9 to 5
Gotta bring the bread home to the mouths you feed

Break out of the ordinary
Save the day and be the one to
get your name on screen

You can be one of the cogs
Keep in line and make sure
Everything can run on time

Or are you a superhuman?
Giving all you got those who
Never give you piece of mind

Oh I hope that you can make it past their laser eyes
You don't know what its like
Do I envy you? You mope and want to trade me places
Even though I've never been your kind

Just keep working day to day
I don't know a safer way
I'll persue my ambitions when I have time

I just can't take all the pressure.
I can't take a breath from the
Confusion and I can't escape

No one understands my struggle
No one can connect with me I
Feel so lost I just...

But I can't help but feel we're just the same.
Different paths, different lives, names.
I just wish it was more clear
I just want to be right here

Oh I hope that you can make it past their laser eyes
You don't know what its like
Do I envy you? You mope and want to trade me places
Even though I've never been your kind
Track Name: Leave Me Alone (Not By Choice)
Run away, don't catch me in here
Stay awake, its dreams that I fear
Got a tiger by the tail
And you wonder why I call it hell

Keep your mouth shut, let me finish
You suffocate me like goldfish
I'd rather you just break my bones
I'm sick and tired of feeling alone


Minutes, Hours; what's the difference
Its always waiting from the absence
All the best will come in time
But even those words can't ease my mind

Who believes in glittered logic
The very thing that makes a heart sick
Just listen to a honest voice
Won't you believe its not by choice

Why even try; You always leave me alone.
You'd hear me cry; You always leave me alone.
Track Name: Yellow World
I wanna be happy
Try to be the one to follow you

Planning is broken
Makes this yellow world turn blue

Its tunnel vision, ecstasy
Self indulgent rays of light

It always feels like nothing,
Nothing, nothing.

And by my side, I'll never let go
In this yellow world

And by my side, we'll never let go
In this yellow world of ours

We'll just watch the yellow sunrise

We'll just watch the yellow sunrise
