Track Name: The Interrogation
What is this? What do you know about what this is?
When you run... where do you have to go when you run?
Asking a question in stereo
makes it much harder to hide
you look like you fell off the back of a truck with a talent for heartless goodbyes.

There's so much confusion there is so much fucking noise, you can try to tune it out, but then you don't have a point.

Look at me, do you see any conspiracy, was I framed on the very day I was named? Tell me that something's impossible, I already know that's a lie, you look like you snuck on the ice cream man's truck and ate all of my favorite kinds.

There's so much confusion...

Give me some, of your fake equilibrium, can I ask how long you've had to wear that mask? Tell me that nothing's impossible, I already know that's a lie...
Track Name: Tinkerbell
In the middle of the room
in the last place you would look
there's a riddle of a girl
with her nose stuck in a book

she wants to learn about the world
see it for herself
but they'll never let her out
and they say it's for her health

she's afraid to speak too loud
afraid that she'll be heard
afraid to eat too much
she only wants to be a bird

but every time she tries to fly
she falls back to the earth
she'd be a million miles away
if she had the nerve

clap your hands for the girl
she's gonna need all the help she can get

in the middle of the day
she got picked up in a car
traded one town for the next
her mother's eyes for his guitar

but the road can do so much
the night can get so cold
she was offered something new
but she'd have to do what she was told

so she learned to say her prayers
learned to be polite
learned to dress the part
but she still could never sleep at night

what she never told a soul
is that she did it to survive
but inside that costume is she still
alive?

clap your hands for the girl
she's gonna need all the help she can get

just a little bit
of love and affection
just a little bit
of old fashioned luck and she'll be
inside the tv

in the middle of the night
when you're crying in your sleep
choking on your fright
and the promises you have to keep

think back a little while
what was that promise that you made?
to get out of that room
oh, what was that price you paid?

now you're afraid to close your eyes
afraid of what you'll see
behind this great disguise
just a faded memory

and the last you'll understand
as the pieces fade to grey
there's just no way to live without trading the past
away

so clap your hands for the world
it's gonna need all the help it can get.
Track Name: The Song No One Hears
What happens to the song no one hears
will it come back again in a few hundred years
they try to counter your fears
as the song passes by silently in the night

what will happen to the song no one hears
will it echo in pieces, be sung by the steers
will we recognize that something was lost
when we base what we love on a profit and cost

the song knows that it won't be heard
(it won't, it won't the song will not be heard)

some say it chose not to be heard
(does not, does not, does not want to be heard)

there are those who know it's absurd

it got tired of trying to be someone's sign

Everybody's waiting to be told what to do
by a bionic hero with a gigantic show
everybody's waiting for a little birdie to recover the myriad treasures of youth

everybody's got their heart locked in a box
where they keep their favorite cartoon

everybody's waiting for the one with the key
with a smile for a mile
and the style to beguile

*chorus*

Everybody likes the same things
everybody looks the same
everybody likes who they are
everybody's clean and sane

everybody walks to the beat that they hear in their heart
everybody can't wait to finish so the next one can start

everybody believes in god everybody's scared of hell
everybody wears the same scar from that one time we fell
everybody thinks this is fun everybody thinks this is dumb
everybody thinks this is fun precisely because it's so dumb

*chorus*
Track Name: Eggshells
I've been walking on eggshells since you came along
with your wide eyes
with my feet on the ground I still need to stay strong
just to stand up to you
you with your wild eyes and you with your cold stare
you with the night on your side in the cold air

I could fight with myself all night over you...
is your heart alive and is it beating true?

I've been clicking my heels and wishing on a star
I could get back home but
am I spinning my wheels in an overturned car
I check my blindside for signs...

Signs that I'm not going crazy, and that I'm not just too damn lazy to go...

I could fight with myself all night over you...
is your heart alive and is it beating true?

Give me something to fight for cause something's not right, while you're tossing and turning I'm still flossing and yearning
Am I playing a game, can you tell me the same, once my heart was on fire, now I feel like a Liar cause...

I could fight with myself all night over you...
is your heart alive and is it beating true?
Track Name: Intro
We didn't see it coming 2x
If we had seen it coming surely we would have taken a stand

you have no right to judge us 2x
No man alive can judge us no one but himself can judge a man.

The sky was grey and cloudy 2x
bright blue the day before those bots destroyed the hand from which they fed

I used to be somebody 2x
Oh god the fall was bloody now we wait but we don't understand

The long road the long road the long road never ends
And if I tell you my darkest story will you take it from me then.

My heart is bound and breaking eternal torment aching
a hell of our own making I died years ago but it won't end

I had a home and baby 2x
all gone ahead to hades but the devil still won't take my hand.
Track Name: Dig Deep (parts 1 and 2)
The devil's got me in his grip
eyes so wide no one can deceive him
the devil's got me in his grip
teeth so sharp like a hundred needles

he found me on this sinking ship
on my knees praying for a way out
you've heard this story haven't you?
how will it end, and are the stories all true?

Dig deep, dig deep there is trouble in the company i keep
my feet, my feet, they won't carry me home, the rivers too deep.

If I could I'd go on a trip
to the sea
swim the finest waters
but the devil won't let go of me
and what's more he's sworn to take my daughter

I'm meek, too meek
to commandeer the solace I seek
don't weep
don't weep
can we threaten the cage if we know that we're free?

On his way to work one day a man got swallowed up
never had he stopped to see the flowers growing up
through a gash that opened up the ground swallowed him whole
he thought about his family he thought about his soul
he found himself inside a cage with others looking on
he didn't say a word for days his happiness was gone
his happiness was gone

Then someone came near to him with horns upon his head
i will relate this story to you tell you what he said
tell you what he said

Did you see me I waved hello
You look like somebody I used to know
I can tell that you feel out of place
On the outskirts of the human race

And it was never my plan to hold you hear
We don't deal in currency we deal in fear
call me names it won't do you no good
You're being charged with living a life of wood

No one ever told this man that he had not done right
He never got in trouble, never got into a fight
But now that he had found himself inside the gates of hell
He tried to genuflect but what his sin was they would not tell

One day in a fit of rage the devil glared at him
"You bastards get a sea of chance" he said "but you won't swim
I'll send you back if you will take this message home with you
Figure out what it is that you're supposed to do, figure out who.

Step right up and turn it around
There is something for everyone in this town
I was lost got buried deep underground
Found a tunnel and I followed the sound.

I pushed this boulder up that hill
But it won't go up the other side
I see the image burning still
The smoke tells me that all that's real has died

Dig deep, dig deep there is trouble in the company i keep
my feet, my feet, they won't carry me home, the rivers too deep.

I'm meek, too meek
to commandeer the solace I seek
don't weep
don't weep
can we threaten the cage if we know that we're free?
Track Name: Baby, I'm Falling
When I first saw you it was summer
At our friend's party by the beach
You had somebody then, you were out of reach

We kept in touch over the autumn,
You were still with her, I was still with me
feelings I had for you, gotta let em be.

Baby I'm falling, baby I'm falling, baby I'm falling now

Winter came on too soon as it often seems
And in a sudden twist I started living out my dreams
and I knew that
It was all worth waiting for

We had a couple months of heaven
couple months of hell
couple months of learning what got broken when we fell
but I knew that I could never give you up.


Baby I'm falling, baby I'm falling, baby I'm falling now
It seems like we're stalling, why can't we stop brawling?
cause baby I"m falling now.

But spring arrived and saved us
like it always can.
open up our eyes to see a woman and a man
and we knew that the seasons can't hurt us no more.

As life is waking up around us, we're only starting on the ride
I'll hold your hand as we step into the tide.


Baby I'm falling, baby I'm falling, baby I'm falling now
If you should come calling I'd give you my all, cause baby I'm falling now.
Track Name: Count Down the Days
Oh Children will play and get carried away
jumping and laughing and kicking
the elders observe this disruptive display
these spirits in need of a licking

We've seen it all and we know how it ends
the 17 year is a doozy
each child takes a test to determine their fate
It's the rest of your life without choosing
so

count down the days till you're dead
count down the days till you're dead
life will be fine if we end it on time
just count down the days till you're dead

You work all your life for the robots
They don't even ask you your name
You get what they throw
what you eat you don't know
but you must choke it down all the same

If you think that that sounds depressing
You're lucky you know what it means
whether happy or sad
every feeling you've had
you've had cause you're man not machine
so


count down the days till you're dead
count down the days till you're dead
life will be fine if we end it on time
just count down the days till you're dead
