Track Name: Basement Rock
basement rock I need you
I need to forget about the upstairs world for a while
basement rock give me the fuel
I've got this feeling inside of me and it's on fire
basement rock I hear you
coming through the cracks the foundation's come unglued
Track Name: Big Wheel
take your big wheel to town and see just how far you can get
the wind blows through your feather light hair and the tassels stream by your side

just one more block and you'd get away
after the candy store it'd be smooth sailing
that's where they caught you trying to escape
they brought you home where you'd be safe

now you ride where they want you to around in a circle out back
you lay in bed at night dreaming someday it will come true
Track Name: Condominium Carnival Freaks
they rode into town in their golden 4x4s
taking over what was once mine and yours
the seething throngs amassed to protest the noise and trash
all the things we love they want to tear down

they're all laughing can't you see them roar
I'm not laughing it's not funny anymore
watch them squeeze the life right out of me

they built another one over there as if we'd even care
and now they want to build right on top of you
and when they move their people in you can let the show begin
just keep it down 'cause you don't live here anymore
Track Name: Fast Food Center of the Universe
when it all comes up on you again
will you forgive me for turning away

in the fast food center of the universe
unveil the mystery meat when they all come around
I've got this strange feeling deep down inside of me
I hope I feel better today somehow

no more mystery meat no more bloody secrets

do you expect me to understand
as I fall for their master plan
Track Name: Jr. Hell On Wheels
the word you missed at the spelling bee lackadaisically
well who the fuck cares what that means
and I mean that man most positively

jr hell on wheels you wanna know how it feels

hop on my bike let's go for a ride
up in the treehouse where I hid my mother's wine
I'm not sayin' that it's right but I like it

fell asleep in class today
teacher spewing something at me
well this intelligent design sure fucked up this time
Track Name: Magic Shop
at the magic shop
what do you see before your eyes
nothing is what it seems
with a pass of a hand it's revealed what's hidden inside
at the magic shop
Track Name: Mystery Guitar
I heard a mystery guitar at the traveling bazaar
when it started to play I listened all day
the intoxication lasted for hours and from the top of mighty towers
the daredevils flew I wished I could too

I don't wanna miss any of this
magic carpet rides fortune teller's eyes
pick a card and see choose your destiny
can you please unlock the straight jacket I am not an escape artist
I'm just trying to get by
the circus contraption arrived leaving me mesmorized
all this excitement has worn me out
on top of the ferris wheel my daydreams never fail
to amaze me and I'm not done
and in the funhouse mirror everything seems so clear
I think I finally found the way out
Track Name: New Pod Generation
system failure alone
all the viruses are coming home
to infect them all and rest inside of me
weakness detected within
let the countdown begin
data corruption is surrounding me

don't let the cyber sickness get you down
just turn down the light you're safe inside your pod
try to be still let me disconnect the life
are we all addicts looking for which drug is right

crashing on alien shore
my body can't take anymore
self-destruct mode is engaged
as I peer into my microscope
looking for the antidote
all I want is to be free
Track Name: Paper Airplanes
throwing things up
in hopes they'll fly
your paper airplane tricks tease the sky

throwing paper airplanes
notes written in the sky
I wanna see the Grand Canyon
and let you float forever
Track Name: Siamese Twins
has it come down to this
have the chances all been missed
under the microscope
it seems we're all the same

so where do we go from here
I'll follow you anywhere my dear

connect the dots and you'll see
it maps out you with me
is it so rare to be
as close as you and me

let me sever the link my friend
and divide us as once we began
I wonder where the memories will remain
and who will keep the incurable strain
Track Name: Sideways (Acoustic)
can't stop the power flow
all the substations are a go
radioactive membrane pulse arrives
to take over the host

light it up and watch it burn
you want to reach out and touch the flames
the whole world is sideways
trying to turn itself upright again

my eardrums ache from the noise
soundwaves crashing on the shore
brain and transistors fried I'm blind from the heat
hanging from this wire
Track Name: Sideways
can't stop the power flow
all the substations are a go
radioactive membrane pulse arrives
to take over the host

light it up and watch it burn
you want to reach out and touch the flames
the whole world is sideways
trying to turn itself upright again

my eardrums ache from the noise
soundwaves crashing on the shore
brain and transistors fried I'm blind from the heat
hanging from this wire
Track Name: The Human Cannonball
I'm not here to amaze you I only want to go home
but when the circus came through I decided to go

when I heard the applause the chants filled my head
then the deafening bloom popped the bubble of fame

as I flew through the air felt just like Superman
everyone below still like a slow motion frame

gliding towards the ground
my life flashed passed my eyes
I remembered your face
and the promises that didn't last

I'm not here to amaze you I only want to go home
when the circus comes through
please don't let me go
Track Name: Tunneling
I'm trying to tunnel through to the other side of you
must've made a wrong turn somewhere 'cause I keep endin' up back here
and I want to read about all the things that we talk about
but I guess that's why we're friends 'cause no one else seems to understand
why and that's why we're friends

well I missed your call today I think I know what you had to say
goodbyes are hard to see even though you know where they'll be
don't worry about a note a thousands words couldn't spell it out
but I guess that's why we're friends no one else would even understand
why and that's why we're friends
Track Name: Wind-Up Dolls
I'm wide-eyed for the last time
and the wind-up dolls keep marching over me
I'm gonna smash them to pieces
with no regrets and no apologies
I wanna stand up and be counted

they're on the inside
I'm on the outside looking in
they've got evil smiles
and this is gonna be the last time that they win

I'm taking notes and making a plan
but the words I wrote don't mean the same today
so if you get there before me
don't forget to save a place my friend
I know it's taken a while but I finally figured out their plan
Track Name: 5 O'Clock Mad Dash (Demo)
5 o'clock mad dash into the maelstrom the robots smash
the feeding frenzy continues all night liquid concoctions of dynamite
explodes the collective heart divides us each into seperate parts
every night we pick up the pieces again
Track Name: All The Killers
creeping shadows invade the heavy heart masquerade threatening to expose
the critics are all in plae looking to erase what you're holding onto
all the midnight prayers are falling on deaf ears the time is ticking away
the lights have all gone out and there is no doubt night is here to stay

all the killers are here deeply breathing the fear
and as the city burns down can take our turn on the merry-go-round
all the poisoning things magic decoder rings
and the invisible man has a sinister plan

they opened up the tin man ticking time bomb within and only minutes to spare
he'd always wanted a heart so he could make a new start the transplant didn't take
as we lay motionless our blood and tears start to mix in magic potions and spells
and if you start to believe that's when the killers convene and draw you into the storm

all the killers will be just what I want them to be
secrets locked in a box wound up tightly to spring unexpectedly
all the thundering skies want to shed their disguise
and grand experiments and broken heart accidents will be our demise

all the killers are here
watching over me
Track Name: Landslide
turn on the mind control detectors
honing in on neurotransmitters
swallow the pill you'll be alright
shut off the lights try again tomorrow

she screwed up the calculations
trying to hold back the landslide
already losing ground you're on the way down
trying to hold back the landslide

invisible tentacles embrace her
she feels safe below the surface
don't drown in the wishing well
the earth is trembling or is it just your hands
Track Name: Misery's Company Slogan
when you run away it's hard to say that you fucked up
when you look them in the eye and see that you've let 'em down
your bags are already packed and the books are all closed
it's time to punch the clock and go home

repeat after me misery's company slogan
this is the way it'll be it's not up for debate
don't tell me to cheer up I've got it under control
I love misery and misery loves me
