Mr. Intent 01:23
------------------------------------------------------------------------ Mister Intent Sit upon your pedestal Mister intentional Killer of the free will Ah, the blood you will spill Just to keep us hypnotized Pacified by your lies Eh don't it feel like Midnight in Tunisia in the air As i feel like breaking down every Wall that surrounds these Boundaries are meant To keep you complacent in babylon If history repeats itself Please start it over again Cause in this tragic comedy I'm afraid i'm the antagonist ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Regarded 04:24
------------------------------------------------------------------------ Regarded Playing away the roles avoiding senseless goals Of money and power, the corporate machine Can never devour the soul Of an optimistic individual Tone deaf to the sounds of the bells and whistles Burn down the factory now it's official Regarded as a criminal But living this lifestyle It's all that i know All types of arrangements Constantly changing Grandfather time keep no rhyme Just the rhythm of the pendulum always in motion You're a reel to reel with no digital notion Essential potential lies between their lines defined. Break down the wall. Collect all you can find. ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sally 03:40
Sally ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Sarah said she'd had enough of living the life Without the one she loved Packed her stuff then threw it all away Oh, she left town on that.. She believed where she was going She would never need any of it Not half incorrect, oh i suspect It'll never quite be clear Drop your inhibitions Listen what you hear Help me understand now Sally Speak freely without fear I'm taking my time, memories seem like dreams Learning to relax while questioning everything My willing is able, my mind far from stable At times frustration's known to get the worst of me But my intent is right And i would feel just fine If someone would be so kind to flip that vinyl ------------------------------------------------------------------------

------------------------------------------------------------------------ Occupational Purgatory Yeah the news headlines Flash across the television Whiskey hits my belly Now i got double vision Cause it's a black and white world Except the spectrum of colors Yeah we're all thrashing in the water We can't swim when our hands are tied Rockin' in your chair Is this how you thought it would be? Cause your suburban paradise looks like A graveyard to me It's like occupational purgatory No opportunities or worries Why should we care when america Falls down around us? Corporation cloud has a silver lining It tears at the seams Crying tears at an effigy Of an american dream Vice chairman and CEO see Dollar signs instead of people Beaten into submission Corrupt as a politician Attempt to leave your mark But how long can it stay? Somebody must have spiked my drink When i wasn't looking They tell me.. Wake the town and tell the people An evil symphony adorns these horizons Wake the town and tell the people An evil symphony adorns.. I'm distracted by a circus of politics Mesmerized by a crystal screen Infatuated with money Yeah, i'm obsessed with the finest of things I'm distracted by a circus of politics Mesmerized by a crystal screen Infatuated with money.. Stuck in occupational purgatory ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Sidewalk Tango ------------------------------------------------------------------------ Grief is only temporary Relief lies in the mortuary Popular belief become quite contrary Press on, press on Results may vary Sidewalk tango, awkwardly dance slow Move from side to side Heart beats late, your rhythm recalculates And you just walk on by.. Crazed by radio, radio plays Warfare all over the airwaves Music formulaic marketing strategy: chicanery Frolic in the frat party: billboard top 40 Sidewalk tango, awkwardly dance slow Move from side to side Heart beats late, your rhythm recalculates And you just walk on by.. Sidewalk tango, sway to and fro Loose and find your mind Streets are littered with your cold and your bitter And i ain't got no place to hide.. Suffers sing their songs all night and day Just to sleep and keep the blues at bay Bomb goes off there's bound to be some dismay Got everybody screaming "There's got to be a better way" Sidewalk tango, awkwardly dance slow Move from side to side Streets are littered with your cold and your bitter And i ain't got no place to hide.. Sidewalk tango, sway to and fro Loose and find your mind Heart beats late, your rhythm recalculates And you just walk on by.. ------------------------------------------------------------------------

------------------------------------------------------------------------ If Found, Please Burn It's to you i send my love Carry on Here's to you my friend One of the lonely ones Darkness can bend your soul Shadows fall all around The devil he may take control But he will be knocked down It's to you i send my love Carry on Here's to you my friend One of the lonely ones Crime he is on a role Robbing and looting town Time she will take her toll But we won't be shot down It's to you i send my love Carry on Here's to you my friend One of the lonely ones So it's to you i'll send my love Carry On Here's to you my friends! Carry on Lonely ones.. ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Apathy Bath 03:56
------------------------------------------------------------------------ Apathy Bath How much can you change When you're staring out the same window Faces all look familiar But their names all escape you Bathing in apathy Burning out with self-loathing Maybe this drink Can get your through the night Billions have it worse But your problems they're all special Probably just the first To feel inconsequential Bathing in apathy Burning out, yes, you're drying out With self-loathing And this world Is so cruel And that girl She don't want you Maybe this drink Can get you through the night And maybe that drink Can get you through the night Gunshot the rhythm When it hits you feel no pain Stumbling, staggering Tomorrow's always the same, well Something's gotta give Gonna give to get something back Caught up in a net of Guilt and resentment Your head's on fire Got your fingers on that trigger Holding down your breath While thoughts of her still linger On & on & on Repetition no action Repetition no education Bathing in apathy Burning out, yes, you're drying out With self-loathing Maybe this drink Can get you through the night And maybe that drink Can get you through the night And maybe this drink Can get us through the night.. No.. ------------------------------------------------------------------------

------------------------------------------------------------------------ Comlaining In Harmony Let's start with a new page And a Pollack of ideas Our mistold histories we're only Decoding every story Conclusions that we find We'll pass around in our time Forever blowing bubbles in a smoke screen Of democracy And is it necessary to pick the bone clean? Parasitic tendency to devour more than we need Well if it's alright with you we'd rather stay indoors Than to be caught in the rain Fighting your 'undisclosed war' Quejarse En Harmony It's so fuckin on when you're feeling something wrong You put your fist in the air and you sing along Debriefed on a need-to-know basis Drinking from a well, weren't you promised an oasis? Whoa, complaining in harmony Many people fear that this war can't be won So I sing for the optimist in everyone Quejarse En Harmony It's so fuckin on when you're feeling nothing wrong You put your fist in the air and you scream along It's all about the under toe the natural Charm of our moon Waves at our back They're ready to crash ------------------------------------------------------------------------

Saturday 03:41
------------------------------------------------------------------------ Saturday I got a bottle full Of truth and lies I got a glass full of excuses Reasons why You see i'm going out today And i won't be back till Saturday Save my bitter regret For a latter day Hey gimme two shots of pity one for me And one for this city Here's to the street Sweet jungle of concrete Count each brick in the wall These buildings are so tall Silhouettes and cigarettes Point me towards last call I got a bottle full Of truth and lies I got a glass full of excuses Reasons why You see i'm going out today And i won't be back till Saturday Save my bitter regret For a latter day See i'm going out tonight Dancing in artificial light When morning come i'll humm the tune Of last night Yeah when morning come i'll humm the tune of last night ------------------------------------------------------------------------
