Kirk Camoron 02:31
closed off an operation i’m standing close enough to hear i drop the pen from my nervous hand let go way too soon. how soon is measured how soon is measured in numbers figures lie, i can't react without turning my eyes are full of self-satisfaction, you don't know this i'm not telling you anything you want to hear systems hold us down, do you wanna hear this? don't want it, makes me sick how can i know that you're not gonna fuck me right back when i turn around and walk away and leave this room is colder than a thousand slurpees poured down my back at home, i take off my clothes and drift to sleep i don't wanna.... leave.... anymore make it worth my time and try to dissect this when i say i want, i want, i want

the seven hour trip is worth it this time, no more waiting not on our terms a quarter-century's worth of fear and disappointment is a money-shot load carried alone, carried alone go it alone... pack your bags, you got better things to do open hand, chop it off - this time no more waiting, this time, no more hands outs - this time, I take on more than I can swallow in one sitting you’re calling me out but you’re not saying much run your mouth but I’m not there

what's today, what's tomorrow, what's the use i move on to gain a new perspective i can barely wait until i move to another part of… i can barely wait until this new objective takes me down the wire, and gain a filter (to know the way) i made a mistake, i made a mistake - this will have to wait, for now I want to enjoy the moment I hold my smile, I hold my smile back from killing you - and now it's gotta pay, the road moves over to your maker and it burns inside, thrown out and floating down the river now take me down the river, i wanna take a swim

Folk Song 01:26

learn to hold it back, ya gotta curb it or shut your mouth completely and neatly you fold like a deck of cards, like a mess about to fall apart completely close the circle, you're letting the cancer out close the circle, you're not the only one around no more late-night drop-in check-ups and staying up 'till dawn breaks i drive home half awake at the wheel, another morning spent blocking out the sweet old sun blockin' out, blockin', blockin' out close the circle, you're letting the cancer out close the circle, you're not the only one around sorry for not feeling sorry anymore let's throw contentment out the door give me something to do, give me something to live against give me meaning, i wanna destroy you i'm not here so don't leave a message i'm not here so don't bother comin' and knockin' at all i'm not so don't leave a message i won't read it at all your words are empty but I still drink it anyway your words are empty but I still drink it anyway your words are poison but i still drink it anyway your words are poison but i still drink it up

the answers in the pavement and the tower has crumbled so reach out and let go the braid is now tangled, time to cut it off completely singing an old song today with friends you see anymore something's better than nothing cut the braid, cut the shit kill the act, reach out and let go stick the message back in the bottle nothing tells me it's worth reading anyway the board is used up, throw it out with all the other counterfeits kill the act, reach out and let go singing an old song today because there's nothing left to say i sing a new song, i sing a new song, i sing a new song because i still have things to say stick the message back in the bottle nothing tells me it's worth reading anyway singing an old song today with friends you see anymoresomething's better than nothing

The First 03:11
its the first of the year i want it to be perfect smoother than a fresh damp shave the walk is longer than what it usually is and i wonder how i can spend the day sitting on the park bench i smoke a cigarette first and only of the year that may be sitting on the park bench not feeling the same i did seven years ago on the first 2 weeks tomorrow done and finished what does perfect mean to you? 5 am morning drive i drop my friend off at the airport and watch em walk between moving doors sour blister on my tongue i take a drink from a day old cup -- choke it down, choke it down it’s the first of year and I want it to be perfect every passing moment well captured the glow of a burning building on san Gabriel and broadway gathers a crowd in the evening in the evening, I cut out the waiting get up and leave, it’s time to go

Yaba 02:29
you say you found the truth on your side no more holding back and onto past lies pull back the veil to see what you’ve been missing you are my master of disguise, the after-hour guest kept waiting in the living room just keep on waiting twiddle your thumbs for a few more minutes, stare at flowers on the wall pattern pretty and just made ready, family pictures in the hall the smell of eggs burning in the other room in bloom, it leaves a stain the color’s fading and the smell of home eventually disappears I can’t make out the thought you had maybe it’s not meant for me to hear and ponder upon can you show me what I’ve been missing it’s too soon to notice the damage that’s been done to you I can’t get rid of the blur the color’s fading, left in the 80’s, the smell of eggs burning in the other room an afternoon of surfing the black and white tv set stare at flowers left to rot, jump the gun before the show can you show me what I’ve been missing - quiet mornings here no longer - the smell of home eventually disappears

let me take this picture, hold it close and make it last bury it back in the shoebox, forget it, forget it let me take this picture, make it last a lifetime i want you to want me at my best at all times there's room for asking how can it change, how can i change running out of things to talk about watch me finish you off what should i expect, anything less less than zero, less is more just, just give me a chance to be what i want to live for and tell me all the answers there's room for asking, there's room for entertainment there's room for action, there's room for asking there’s room for action, there’s room for action, there’s room for asking, there’s room for entertainment

Slippy 01:49
I left my watch at home. should I go back and get it at least I still have my phone but I feel so naked without my watch I know I don’t really need a reason why I don’t have anywhere to be, I’m not important I hope someone calls me, I guess no one really needs this stupid piece of shit who left his watch at home on the window sill I set it down and told myself I would remember this time will be the last morning I forget my precious little timekeeping device I feel a little cold, it’s afternoon and there’s breeze the sun is hiding. I wish I brought a jacket I hope I don’t catch anything from being a patient little boy in your hands like a plaything or a pet, don’t play games I’m a person with feelings and regret every sad fucking moment in your short pathetic life is nothing but a flash, a spark, a fire hidden away deep down, you think you’ve really found a way we all find a way, get out of my way

Altar Boy 03:21
is there something behind me lookin' over your shoulder, read the punchline written on the wall i stare straight, unfocused. now's just not the time, i won't break i hate you when i'm bored i need to stretch my legs, that yellow hand is ticking so slowly what's so hard about being clear? why can't i hear you? isn't that what you wanted so desperately you make me feel so slow, i can't match your pace tell me what i did, oh tell me is there something looking over my shoulder take a seat in my mental room, hey, ho, hey, ho i hate you when i'm bored when i'm happy too long and i know it's gotta end i wanna spit in your cup and serve it, you only deserve the best i wanna stay your altar boy what's the purpose, what's the damage tell me what i did, oh tell me it doesn't get any better, i'm not on the same i'm not on the same level as you (i'm not anything like your point of view)

Marshall 03:34
it's my hand that i swing back and forth hope i don't hit you, don't say i didn't tell you it's my throat, a lump that can't be swallowed when will it dry out (and be) no longer a nuisance but a part of me? it's nice to have a quiet moment it's nice to smile when the door's about the close in front of the mirror, i can't change much so i surround myself with higher people it's my game, how can i lose a round buried in the backyard it's my game, how can i lose a round fuck, turn off the lights again cos i've lost it, lost it, lost it, lost this game why open a wound that's almost been healed? choose to smile as you walk off the stage and ya go..
