Look how that man is snowing Inhaling through one nostril I feel so at ease, to be down on my knees (again) She used to have a cryophyte, Now she only has a dog Who do you please with your rabid disease? Do you find it justified We converse with nothing but our fingers I touch you - they fall, I am losing them all One by one, till they no longer count You're under my skin but there's nothing within How it all became this way Never could quite have things in their place Why should I choose to obey? I may as well be cast away You have to come up With a tidier solution Take two of these; they'll remind you to breathe This one worked hard enough To earn a massive heart attack The wolf's getting near and it all becomes clear What you left behind is Mellower than wine It's an "all you can eat" and the course is your feet The clouds in your head they allow you to think Falling apart, it will make you complete How it all became this way Never could quite have things in their place Why should I choose to obey? I may as well be cast away Did it all turn out this way? Never could quite set a line up straight Why do I feel led astray? My brain is just too big for my head

This wooden heart bleeds for no one Stapling medicine onto their eyes This cardboard box has filled its purpose Our society is counting on you To paint all the sidewalks Whenever they start to fade You are indeed The cornerstone of humanity I turned into what they've created They cancelled my sense and my mind is outdated My life source is now barricaded I cancel myself I turned into what they've created They cancelled my sense and my mind is outdated My life source is now barricaded I cancel myself But it no longer makes any difference We circle ourselves with exploitation centers Seeking redemption in our flabby papers Replacing warmth with sophisticated plastic Our society is counting on you To paint all the sidewalks Whenever they start to fade You are indeed The cornerstone of humanity I turned into what they've created They cancelled my sense and my mind is outdated My life source is now barricaded I cancel myself I turned into what they've created They cancelled my sense and my mind is outdated My life source is now barricaded I cancel myself But it no longer makes any difference

I Know 04:42
I can't be trusted I know this now I'm a replacement I can't be proud I was misguided I don't know how I got this far Without a heart Without a heart I know it's not enough I know You call my bluff Now I am learning How to be hard Now I am yearning For a new start Give me some answers Give me a chance I can move on I don't deserve much But I'd like to anyway I know It's not enough I know You call my bluff I know You're not as tough I want I want it to stop But I'm just slipping away I know It's not enough I know You call my bluff I know You're not as tough I know You're not a child I am scared to confide

Human Again 05:37
It feels strange To be human again To crawl out of this static cocoon I am very creative With my back against the wall I am sure I'm completely uncertain Trying to diminish what's real I am very courageous When playing this out in my head You spoke of the future And I had to nod While playing this out in my head In my mind we're no longer together In my mind we're already apart It is always about me And I always make the journey back The first square has been waiting For me to return to my throne You spoke of the future And I had to nod While playing this out in my head You spoke of the future And I had to nod For the lack of a better plan In my mind we're no longer together In my mind we're already apart I should have been writing Operas in your name (instead of pausing my existence) I should be breaking down As we speak I should have been laughing In the face of danger (instead of choosing the obvious) I've played with my emotions While you were waiting For a handout I should have been writing operas in your name I should not have waited

Always but a passenger And not really there I make room for the consignment I relinquish my breath To sneeze immortality at the sight of your missing aversion I'm sorry; you must have confused me with someone else Someone who cares The way you voice my name makes me so benevolent As you recycle your pets You put yourself in my place, When there is only... only me She keeps her motives in plain sight But I always choose to look away As I'm drifting sideways my mind is left behind Trapped in a demented smile A viciously catchy tune entangled in my spinal cord I'm sorry; you must have confused me with someone else Someone who cares The way you voice my name makes me so benevolent As you recycle your pets You put yourself in my place, When there is only... only me I know Your mouth can move But you don't fall through I fall through you I see Your eyes can soothe You don't read through it: I fall for you I'm sorry; you must have confused me with someone else Someone who cares The way you voice my name makes me so benevolent As you recycle your pets You put yourself in my place, When there is only... only me

Please don't feed me With useful information I need to keep myself distracted Disguise my aspirations in the night And if it wasn't for the digits I couldn't tell these days apart I am compelled to make an effort Fill my mind with blank Because it's easier being tired Tear out my face Turn it into something that will last Can't find my place It's just a hole in the ground It would fit anyone The first bite of an apple Is always the scariest one I've lost the urge to make an effort Yet my blood cells linger on The board has stayed the same It’s the pawn who has changed He thinks that he can retire Tear out my face Let me know if something isn't right Can't find my place I am buried in town I never see the sun We are all walking graveyards
8.
Complete detachment A punching bag's constant attempts To overthrow its masters She will fall in between the cracks As did all the other stations Man's big triumph Over bread crumbs Too much maintenance Must keep mouth open There are no magical short cuts Other than persistency But I am drowning in fuel Completely saturated Can no longer tell Between resource and outcome Surrendered to carbonate I swim with parasites Unable to follow all the instructions For better up keeping Of future compost Too many regrets Must shed this Woolgathering barren skin Blood ties aside It always feels like hugging plastic Watch the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AwZj5MDYphU
9.
A random treaty signed My hands are tied In front of me Physical sovereignty Will force my legs to grow Can't say I asked for this But now that it's here I miss it even more Swirling in uncertainty Will never bring me truth Brain cells tend to change their mind When transcending youth Acceptance will be The death of me Can't say I asked for this But now that it's here I miss it even more
10.
It's easy to be constantly afraid Of something you cannot ever change And once again I am amazed At how reality can spoil a good memory Lately, my concrete flowers seem to grow I hardly ever feel empty anymore I'm done with replacing the people in my life Just so I could keep telling the same stories It's always nice to have someone Who's willing to tell you what to do And once again I am afraid That I'm biting more than I can chew Lately, my concrete flowers seem to grow I hardly ever feel empty anymore I'm done with replacing the people in my life Just so I could keep telling the same stories I tell her, thoughtfully Your issues are outstanding But you don't have to worry, I can fix you And she says You already have Yes she says You already have Lately, my concrete flowers seem to grow I hardly ever feel empty anymore I'm done with replacing the people in my life Just so I could keep telling the same stories
11.
She thinks I don't know why But I know too well She wants to make me better But I cannot be changed Only those with wealth Can afford mental health And now you're going home Protected by your makers From the likes of me You said you couldn't touch Your body couldn't handle The song you loved so much became your own Now I can truly say That this has been the greatest love of my life, so far I had to jump through hoops And still become a selfish bastard, in your eyes You say you want me here And then complain I block your light I designed these instincts You're so eager to replace And now you're going home Protected by your makers From the likes of me You said you couldn't touch Your body couldn't handle The song you loved so much became your own You say you want the truth But I cannot deliver I cannot give you what you want You never truly love Unless you always worry I really wanted you to be the one
12.
I used to cherish Those flickering sounds and lights Now molts are my main concern I smolder and count, forth and backwards Frothing and scolding Bewailing spilled liquid of cows If times flies When you're all having fun Then monotony must be a recipe For eternity There comes but a moment Where all the borders Are easily swayed beyond a burning doubt There's one certain limit Where all of your principles Metamorphose into stupidity It's inevitable I used to perish the thought Of discarding my habits Now I lie on thin air Laying layers of rubbish I huff and I puff Indulging my compromises Tucking everything safely Under the rug Watch the video: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1PvAYgpGzL4
