Karmageddon 03:16
Holding my head Stumbling Out my regret Humbling All my selves Losing all the expectations That I’m holding to Watching them drown From water that Poured out their mouth Losing faith Acclimate Purging all the education That is failing me Trapped in a body that does what it wants just to spite the mind Haunted by the sounds you made Trapped in my ways Stuck in the days that remain the same Haunted by The sounds you used to make Taken by surprise again I don’t mind the sentencing to come so quick It’s law of motion You give it all you have to give Crack a smile and roll with it There’s nothing you can do to save us from what’s happening It’s coming The sky is falling down again Tout de suite Coming for All it can eat Sin buffet Making sure You get all of what’s been coming Did you ask for this? I know I did Happily Take my pain Witnessing All the fear you had inside you Now it’s coming out Trapped in a body that does what it wants just to spite the mind Haunted by the sounds you made Trapped in my ways Stuck the days that remain the same Haunted by The sounds you used to make Taken by surprise again I don’t mind the sentencing to come so quick It’s law of motion You give it all you have to give Crack a smile and roll with it There’s nothing you can do to save us from what’s happening It’s coming It’s coming Out from every pore I see in me Talking all that shit you couldn’t take back In the end It’s just every thing you give You get right back Instant karma Karmageddon

Scapegoat 04:49
They say We’re killing everything We’ll watch it burn And cleanse our bodies in the ashes Diseases passed through generations Condemn the next Two steps forward And four steps back Progress stunted by ignorance Giving love a red tape and a mandate Propaganda fueled by hate They’re filling up the lake Past the levy I’ll be your Scapegoat You’ll be the victim again Put it on to turn back Dirty head Rippled thread I won’t make excuses again To get back You feel entitled to All those things you put us through And I don’t get How everything you said Was always dead You couldn’t hold it all together So you threw it on our backs for us to stray From everything We could’ve been My body sways I’ll be your Scapegoat You’ll be the victim again Put it on to turn back Dirty head Rippled thread I won’t make excuses again To get back Scapegoat You’ll be the victim again Put it on to turn back Dirty head Rippled thread I won’t be make excuses again I don’t wanna go Taken to where I don’t belong Anymore I don’t wanna know About those things you do Say no Animal

Haze Jude 03:51
Fractal shapes Watch the colors change Free my mind and let me out of my cage Take me Show me everything they say that I need Tripped up Spilt cup See the serpent shake Saying anything to make my mind break Paranoia takes My descent begins The darkness sets in Come down I breath in I’m falling faster now I can’t see ground Sweating my poison out I’m falling Dark hues Strange views A weight strapped upon my chest Kicking up all the dust I can’t see much You wanted it this way Try to find Some common sense Anchor all my thoughts to this Centered mind I don’t wanna cross that line I see red Face down Watching me by the nape Kicking up all the dust I can’t see much You wanted it this way Try to find some common sense Or just deny it’s over with I don’t mind if I get lost along the way I come undone Come down I breath in I’m falling faster now I can’t see ground Sweating my poison out I’m coming down Shaking my demons out I’m falling now Breathe in I catch myself I’m coming down

We photosynthesize at night when it’s cold Trace the light back to ufo’s Talk to me Vibrations help me stimulate And take in more You feed me way too much Blocking all my roots with caked on salts I try to tell you in my own words But all you see are colored spots Nutrient burn Sometimes you get too much of Something good The heat just makes it worse Guess it’s time we flushed out everything We learned Try to force all my feedings You come back to find me withered I don’t wanna die But I don’t know I guess my body couldn’t take it all Try to find the cause of death Just deny it till it’s over with And throw me with the rest of everything That you don’t need Nutrient burn Sometimes you get too much of Something good The heat just makes it worse Guess it’s time we flushed out everything We learned We learned You go to flood my system Try to take back What you said But you can’t It’s already in my veins Try to save Everything that you can Make a clone it doesn’t take Because it’s already dead I’m already dead

Abstract thoughts Caught up in the undertow Falling down Tangled in me Don’t let them see The ocean floor is filled with Everyone’s debris Skim along the surface Repurpose anything that resonates Distant friend Tied down to a speeding train Falling down slow Falling asleep Sleep next to me If I never wake you Just follow the stream and I’ll be waiting patiently Bask in the glory light Bring all your dreams to reality Passionately then you’ll see All we are Are subtleties anxiously waiting for Decay and bloom I’ll watch you destroy Everything I’ve ever known And we’ll create Something worth change Better days Sit on the fence Watch ’til you pass Out from the laughs Fall on either side Whichever one You land on is everything you’ll ever have Despite which side is greener on the other one Just make the best of what you got Or never make at all Careless So careless you run through the night Watching the sky Tripping over branches That come out from underneath To drink the water from the surface When everything’s dry For miles deep All we are Are subtleties anxiously waiting for Decay and bloom I’ll watch you destroy Everything I’ve ever known And we’ll create Something worth change Better days If all we have Is all we know If you keep your mind closed How can you know If all we are Is all we know If you don’t get out there kid How can you grow If all we have Is all we know If you keep your mind closed How can you know If all we are Is all we know If you keep your mind closed How can you grow I see red Inside your head That’s ok I got blues Maybe you won’t change But I can dance for two Maybe one day You’ll change too

Found you lied Called it hopeless Walked back in time Called it progress Had anyone tried we'd have talked less I'm just too tired this time WOOO! He’s right behind you, man He’s gonna get you With a weapon that you don’t wanna feel Inside you What’s with his mother? The vacation killer SOS You quietly undressed Leapt off the bed And left me for dead Palms unpressed Speak of the dead Bereft of a sentiment It was lead Don’t belie the creature in you, Out after dark Stirring up quicksand Lie in wait you laid for days Oh my I fell right in WOOO! He’s right behind you, man He’s gonna get you With a weapon that you don’t wanna feel Inside you What’s with his mother? The vacation killer WOOO! (Son you took a real hard hit) He’s right behind you, girl (That car bout nearly did you in) He’s walking faster With revenge that you never talk about (I guess that you should stay awake) Without me (If you want to see other days) What’s with his mother? The vacation killer WOOO! Struggle, strangle, choose a plan Eyes wide before you lose again Ill see you on the other end Let's just make sure we both stay dead

French Roast 04:32
Pressing French roast again I’ll take it right up to you Laying in bed Wasting our days away Watching TV with the babies Deteriorate And I’ll forget some things that you say You know I don’t mean to It’s just the greenery Take what you need I don’t need much since I found your body And all of its ways I’ll be wide awake On the back porch just listening Fall in love Fall into me again I’ll learn from everything we did To come unfed With a purpose and conscious intent Were the babies fed? Talking too softly You can’t understand Timing means nothing if I’m never there to begin with I’m sorry I caved And I’ll forget to take my breath Doesn’t mean nothing if I’m not around Come in too close Let me warm every bone at the bedside Our bodies lie there And I’ll stay Fall into me With a reckless abandonment I’ve got a feeling I can’t quantify in my head So I’ll take what I get Serving all that I can Right back to you Fall into me Fall in love Wide awake On the back porch just listening To the sounds Of the nature chords Screaming out loud While we sit and wait Meditate Clear your mental state Wipe it clean We can start again Say what you mean Wide awake On the back porch lost in a daze Just listen to me Televised paranoia lies creepy eyes Watch over you and me now While we sit and wait Meditate on the floor with your coffee cup Wide awake

Pavement 04:38
Hold Don’t let go Cracking open the door You swear it’s done Pavement riverbed rushes Past all the the things you thought you knew Kind of…
Kind of like the time You pushed him past the fence and ran away
Where’d you go?

Fall on your tongue Taste the words you left behind To show us all If all I do is what you will Take the light of me And hide yourself away Light overhead flashing
Every time you try to jump Screaming for the man to bring 
My father back from Where he held him down The light goes out In silence
 Fall on your tongue Taste the words you left behind To show us all If all I do is what you will Take the light of me And hide yourself away
Fed up with open hands

Fall back Coming down slow Hiding from nothing Stuck in your ways You hide it You hide it You’re suffering Come clean I’ll be there Messed up Try to hide it from myself and no one else Messed up In my head I’m Messed up I wouldn’t feel the same without this I guess I see the same things you did Just differently I can’t regret
I wouldn’t do a damn thing you did I mean it

Messed up Try to hide it from myself and no one else Messed up In my head I’m Messed up
