Track Name: Two Year Plan
In between the times when things seem real and things are real
You wake up so late
And I’ve been up all morning doing my best to keep still
The time it doesn’t take

All too familiar
Don’t you remember the indifference?
I always thought
We were escaping from it
From a culture that’s come to hate us

But all that running gets exhausting
So come back and see me
So easy, it’s like breathing

Gotta get a job
Gotta earn some money
Gotta feed your apathy for money

It’s always been the best way
Around impenetrable gates
And everything has
And everything will change
You had to save face
And I was in a different place
And the sun is priced so high these days

Where did we stray?
Where did we stray?
Where did we stray?
I always thought we would escape
Where did we stray?
Track Name: Committee Circus
I’ve got a funny feeling
That the difference you so enjoy seeing
Between yourself and the world outside
Is about as complex as the garment it’s marked by
So let’s skip the introductions
I’ve seen them all and I’m quite tired

Nice to see you’ve found a team
Now pay attention, the game’s always changing

But no, no one wants to feel alone
And the world’s a whole lot bigger
Than your shitty school tax zone
And so you’ll find what you thought that you’d despise
A group that holds you in by shutting others out
And comes conveniently disguised

The judges they are judging
Their platforms never meet
So come and share a laugh with me
At their mortality
Everything we truly love will remain
Regardless of some matching game

And I’m so tired of feeling insincere in all I do
To be sincere in all the ways I’d like to is still impossible
Why do we activate these rooms?
Are split second connections still the closest things?
Five years from now, did the song still save you?

But no, no one wants to feel alone
And the world’s a whole lot bigger than where you’re deemed viable
So stop pretending, pretending that you’re not
Just another group of kids who feel slighted and confused about god

The judges they are judging
Their platforms never meet
So come and share a laugh with me
At their mortality
Everything we truly love will remain
Everything we love will remain

I’ve always done this because it’s my escape
From a world run like a contest
A world with which I can’t relate
I’ve always done this because this is my home
Let’s not turn this into a contest of its own
Track Name: Storyteller
The midnight drunks go walking
Happy, looking sad, and talking destiny
This is what the city pays for, I can see
The neon lights resist the fight against separation anxiety
This is what the city pays for, I can see

The dream they sell
I’m hooked; I’m overwhelmed again

And I wish that I could say the days alleviate
This artificial pain I never thought that I’d be feeling at this age
But the drunks don’t go to sleep
They linger just like you and me
This is what the city pays for; what I need

What’s happened to me?

And then I have those dreams, too
The ones where I’m running around like a fool
To make things better for you

Like the good storyteller
You once knew me as
Try to hold it in my head
That no time has passed
Since I stood in circles with automatic friends
Not worried that the means justified the end
‘Cause life without love
Keeps my eyes wide
And my house stays clean
When I don’t let people inside
Track Name: Keyhole M.O.
You wait for another opportunity to speak
He looks for another way to bank
Same affirmation that you get
Same way you treat everyone you used to know like shit

High achieving like they all say that you are
But you and I both know who sets that bar
Don’t we

We can’t see through the shrouds we don’t notice
So replay the sequence
We’re playing buzzword make-believe again
Just to get ahead

And we say pathological liar
Like it’s something rare
We tiptoe through the restaurants waiting on each other
The only way to show we care

And everything’s going according to an age-old master plan
Tagalongs righting wrongs, we join indifferent hands

And we say pathological liar like it’s something rare

And you can paint over guilty but it’s starting to show
And I want you to know
And I want you to know
And I want you to know
That measuring stick broke a long time ago
Track Name: Another Day
You’re just another billboard screaming at me as I pass by
And what was the message you intended to leave behind?
I don’t know and I don’t care
You want to talk about being fair?

Then please just have a seat over there
And when I come back you can tell me who did what when and where
Another day in attention seeking ways
But I never thought that a secret was safe
My feet on the floor and the door is home plate

Your mouth is like a running faucet
You’ve got the choice but you’ve got no will to stop it
Everyone you know, we’ll all drown soon
What were your intentions?
What haven’t you mentioned?
Where’s the line when it doesn’t take?

You want to talk about being fake?
Then come on and show me where this gave way
Come on and show me where this gave way
Come on, and still the line doesn’t take
Come on, and still the line doesn’t take

So come on and show me where this gave way
And tell me how fake and real describe every decision we make

Another day in attention seeking ways
But I never thought that a secret was safe
My feet on the floor and the door is home plate
But I never thought that a secret was safe
Cause there’s no lock and key to those teeth these days
Track Name: Survival of the Fondest
Add it up and that’s everything you are
Subtract the laughs and the meaningless parts
So scared when I think of that afternoon air
‘Cause reminiscing like this is so rare

I wonder just how many times I lied
I’d like to know when I die

Add it all up and tell me what you’ve found
And above the place where the corpses dwell
You’ll write your answer into the ground
But no one gives a fuck about that smell

That fills the air when you’re in hell
No one even cares here if you couldn’t tell

How do I make them stay?
How do I make it okay?
Write it down ‘cause when your heart bursts
They’ll all float away
Add it up and that’s everything you are
Subtract the laughs and my favorite parts

Is that all that’s left when life is gone?
Track Name: Tell Yourself
Am I the only one awake?
Am I the only one?

You’re only what you tell yourself you are
And lying to yourself can only get you so far
You’re only what you tell yourself you are

Well hey there kid, try not to be so hard on yourself
Did you know you can make your own hell?

And you’re only what you tell yourself you are
And lying to yourself can only get you so far
You’re only what you tell yourself you are

The chatting from outside fades
I guess that means that I’m the only one awake at this hour of the night
Thinking about my own hostility, am I the only one with all of this

Running through my head
And the littlest things affect our lives
In ways I can’t understand
I wish that I did
But I’m still eating every word I spoke when I was just a kid

You’re only what you tell yourself you are
And lying to yourself can only get you so far
You’re only what you tell yourself you are
Track Name: Higher Places
Make ends meet and we’ll see the bottom of your feet again
Isn’t it nice to be able to tune right out?
Just close the screen

The tiny things that separate us
The locks on our doors
The dissonance instilled in refrains you’ve never heard correct before
Inspiration comes in many forms
Including fraud
Including yours

Make ends meet and we’ll see the bottom of your feet again
And no, it’s nothing personal, but it never is
Not how I thought I’d learn to live

The tiny things that separate us
The locks on doors
The dissonance instilled in refrains you’ve never heard correct before
Inspiration comes in many forms
Including fraud
Including yours

And all the smarter kids
Went off to be emotional extortionists
And what am I left with?
Where am I now?

The tiny things that separate us
The locks on our doors
The tiny things that separate us
I’m tuning out
Track Name: Understand and Forget
I am the issues that you cling to
Those very clouds floating by
I am the way you misunderstand
I am the fall guy
No lens can see my face the way I see it now
And I have lived to tell the story about how I
Refused to survive

Seeing the sights

I understand what needs to happen
I understand

When all the days go by like a boring song
Forgettable, forgettable
When all the days go by like a boring song
Forgettable, forgettable

I understand what needs to happen
I understand
So rename your god and say that he’s dead
(I understand what needs to happen)
And you’ll be paid in recycled cadences

No lens can see my face the way I see it now
And I have lived to tell the story you have heard so many times
I am the way that you misunderstand
At least I can say I tried

When all the days go by like a boring song
Forgettable, forgettable
When all the days go by like a boring song
Forgettable, forgettable
Track Name: Locked Out of the Magic Theater
Oncoming traffic drowned the sound out
From my apologetic tone and left you staring at me
From across the road I thought we both had crossed
Another case of absent-mindedness on someone’s part
Another failed connection

I’ve never felt the burn of so many eyes, so non-existent, non-existent

You leave me, a perfect evening, things just change like altitude
I go from savage disregard to worrying if I’ve been rude

So can you meet me in the middle?
Can you meet me in the fucking middle?
I sway so often side to side
Back and forth past the middle
I can’t find
I always try
To be the wolf who doesn’t bite
To stop hating what I love in all your sides

Oncoming traffic-severed evenings
And I’ve never felt the burn of so many non-existent eyes
I’ve never felt the burn of so many non-existent eyes
No one’s on first and as the lights they go down

But can you meet me in the in-between?
No one’s on first and the lights are going down
Can you meet me in the in-between?
No one’s on first and the lights are going down
Can you meet me in the in-between?
No one’s on first and the lights are going down
Can you meet me, can you?

So can you meet me in the middle?
Can you meet me in the in-between?
Pick one of the countless sides I’ve seen

Just promise me you’ll stop changing
And I’ll condition all my sides
And I’ll go right on swaying
Lights go down
Track Name: You Are Your Greatest Threat (The Doctor Will Serve You Now)
Familiar childhood dreams
They ended when I found out about new advancements
We can take advantage of to stay productive
While we keep the horror of what we are away

Call it fate or whatever word makes you feel best about yourself
But when it comes down to it we’ve turned against ourselves
So tell me that I don’t understand free will to prove determinism
Well you’re right, because I fucking don’t

You can rave about the science of our kind
Its enemy lives inside your mind
Don’t have a comfort zone, get one sent right to your home
Tell yourself its okay

But I hear you talking in your sleep
Keep talking in your sleep
Keep talking in your sleep

Familiar childhood dreams, they ended for me
Familiar childhood dreams, they ended for me

Familiar childhood dreams, they ended for me
I hear you talking in your sleep, I hear you talking in your sleep
Familiar childhood dreams, they ended for me
I hear you talking in your sleep, I hear you

I hear you talking in your sleep, I hear you, I hear you
