Dropped 03:23
Fly high the skies are friendly Jet lag the land does just fine Learned to love the land of plenty Learned to love the home of mine Touch down the ground of where you’re found Destiny and fate that were once a mess Wave goodbye to hollow sunshine Love’s lost but the future’s endless Dropped off but I’m going nowhere That’s OK because I’m all right Where you’re heading, Everybody knows dear I’ll wait right here for another bite This is just a modern nightmare Lucid dream of truth and fright Kiss the minds that see the sunlight And whip the soul who blinds the sight Follow the man who drives you forward All been done in past is wrong Say goodbye to hollow sunshine Look back, and now you’re gone Look back, I see you’re gone Dropped off but I’m going nowhere That’s OK because I’m all right Where you’re heading, Everybody knows, dear I’ll wait right here for another bite

5AM I heard her whisper Truth be told about my future Eyes of masking and touch unnoticed I could only hear her tears Detonation left me standing with this Frozen hour glass of madness The walls around me are fading away Like a new sense of freedom was laid upon me 8AM the morning bell Enveloped silence of whom to tell Pulled the plug on hopeful soul Now the sadness won’t let go Stationed alone I find myself Tranquil mind of contentment, Though tearful past and resentment, I wonder why 8AM the morning bell Enveloped silence of whom to tell Pulled the plug on hopeful soul It’s time for me to go Where I’m going no one knows Now that Livings’ door has closed Standing alone you’ll find myself Pictured along your barren shelf

I'm Alive 04:37
I’m not quite that man that you claim me to be. You poison my mind with your sweet fantasy. Of tall tale stories in a fairy tale past, Built up twelve stories, how long will I really last? My sheltered mind starts dreaming. And I’m fooled into believing your jealous heart, Now I’m afraid to feel I’m helpless. So baby, I want to go alone. And lose myself. No one to save me, Just me to feel like... I built up a name to protect myself, To save a fall from the deadly thirteenth shelf, And one day I’ll call to be caught when I fall, But Bombadil may not be there. And even if he was, I’d retire him just because, I’m afraid to feel I’m helpless So baby, I want to go alone. And lose myself. No one to save me, Just me to feel like, I’m alive.

A bomb in space to kill the silence Another hit to ease the pain Prescribe a dose of sex and violence Wash it down with acid rain I’m on a date with sheer disaster A comic book future where all dies in the end Can’t you slow it down, or set it back I’ve been blinded by her beauty Turn it off Can’t you tire the way your stupid mind breeds the world? You brought it on Independent thoughts are overdue Those TV shows, they hypnotize Full of shit your robot feeds you No more room to emphasize I’m on a date with self-destruction A comic book future where we all die in the end What a way to end the week, Just one more drink to fall asleep, And soon I’m slowly drifting Turn it off Can’t you tire the way your stupid mind breeds the world? You brought it on Your wicked mind feeds the men who eat the world Why can't you turn it off Lying, shaking on the floor, Trying to kill the piercing roar. Your conscious crying, your heartbeat racing, Can't withstand your mind from pacing. Anything to make it stop, More and more, pills you pop. Once contained a heart of pure, Now trying to find the inevitable cure. Why can't you turn it off? Turn it off Can’t you tire the way your stupid mind breeds the world? You brought it on Your wicked mind feeds the men who eat the world Why can't you turn it off

Heaven once told me she’s afraid to fall asleep. The beauty of desire leads her through wicked nightmare. And she feels it’s all reality, But I know it’s all in her mind. Heaven once told me her mind won’t let her dream. Not the dream she wants, that is, Sick and sad and everything in-between. But of course, nothing is as seems. And I know, it’s all in her mind Background music taken away, Boring noise of truth shall stay. Heaven cried her dreams away. Heaven once sold me on the thought that there is no God. And that the earth was built by a monster, For the simple joy of watching us suffer. Though she spoke of words from lullabies, She slipped on those wicked, vicious lies. Background music taken away, Boring noise of truth shall stay. Heaven cried her dreams away, This is the song of yesterday. The song of yesterday.
