Track Name: How I've Been
I can't think
I can't see
Get your hands off of me.

I will what I want

And I drink
Organic Tea
From the land that doesn't breathe.

And I will what I want
And I'll scream and I'll talk
And I'll flip and I'll flop

I am not your enemy
But this does not sit well with me
This is how I see it
Struggle to infinity
To harness my tranquility
This is how I've been.

Stumble down
Carefully
Get your mind some relief.

Full stride and then walk
All in and then stop
I'll scream and then talk
I'll flip and then flop

I am not your enemy
But this does not sit well with me
This is how I see it
Struggle to infinity
To harness my tranquility
This is how I've been
Frozen to rigidity
Due to your proclivity
This is how I see it
Struggle to infinity
To harness my tranquility
This is how I've been.

This is how I've been.

And this is how I BEND.

You know I would've expected more.
And I would have expected more.
Track Name: Nowhere Land
Feeling fine, the things I did, the things you didn't
Notify me of your wish and I will do it

In the land of nowhere
In the land of no one
In the land of nothing
I will owe you one

In the land of don't care
In the land of no one
In the land of no chance
I will owe you one

Move the sun, so that it can shine upon you
You're the one to show the love you thrust upon me

In the land of nowhere
In the land of no one
In the land of nothing
I will owe you one

In the land of don't care
In the land of no one
In the land of no chance
I will owe you one
Track Name: Riot Shows
Only the righteous choose to fight
Only the heroes
Only the righteous choose whats right
Inflicting their comatose

Oh Billy watches all the riots shown
Oh and he takes in all the battle prose

Only the righteous choose to fight
Only your heroes
Protecting integrity of plight
And innocence alone

Oh Billy's feeling all the violence shown
And he merges it in with his own

Only the righteous choose to fight
Only the heroes
Protecting integrity of plight
Inflicting their comatose

Oh Billy watches all the riots shown
Oh And you wonder why thats what he chose.
Track Name: Careless
And you like to say it's fine
And you like to say the things that weren't gnawing on your mind

And at last you say its over
Couldn't care less that you do

And you only saw your side
And you only brought the things that you weren't afraid to hide

And at last you say its over
Couldn't care less that you do

Sympathize with me
Cause I don't care about the way you see the world
Empathize with me
Cause I'm the one who knows about all the slippery things you do

And at last you say its over
Couldn't care less that you do
Track Name: Anyway
I have many things to do
Many things left to write
I have many things to say but I've lost the will to fight
I can only let go anyway

And sometimes you feel the world seems to fall right into place
All the things you felt inside appear in front of your face
All the things you seemed to want taking on a different light
And you're finally a man.

I can only wish you love
I can only hate your pain
I can only let you go anyway

And sometimes you feel the world seems to fall right into place
Reflect upon a simple thought and you revel in the taste
And the things that made you proud are the things you used to hide
And the things that made you hurt are the things that bring you pride
And sometimes you feel the world seems to fall right into place
All the things you felt inside appear in front of your face
And you're finally a man.
Track Name: Opinion
Don't know what I think
My information stream
Doesn't seem to link
This victory dream

And as I look around
Everything I see
Are my selfish thoughts
That procure just me

Don't know what I think
Somewhere in between
All the things I say
And all the things I mean

And it seems to bark
In an all out scream
How politics of few
Could be the end of me

I've felt like this before
External inner wars
The hand that shows you warmth
Is the hand that shoves you forth.

What is opinion now? Obey the crown, your instinct must be force.
What are they thinking now? Protect yourself, a gravestone would be worse.
Oh yeah.
Of course.
Track Name: Paranormal
Although you beg and want to know
I'll tell you nothing now
Your head will want to kill your mind
My conscience seems to nevermind

So you can scream and kick and claw
You will find nothing new
Your skin is peeled back opened raw
I'm digging straight down in your wounds

I think you got it right
I want to get you
I think you got it right
The man who sent you
The man who sent you.
