The Party 04:35
There's a party in the west wing And everybody's dead When they're done sifting through the pockets They unlock the doors again And the hosts pass out the favors and spirits blind the eyes All free things come with a price They know both yours and mine And they let more of us in And they let more of us in Charging for their sins Until we're gone Left with all these stories And censored black broadcasts Searching for a parable Messages from the past And its not that they lack reason But it seems the case When led by greedy fools and wickedness No one should feel safe And they let more of us in And they let more of us in Charging for their sins Until we're gone.

I woke up smelling scents and feeling fleeting visions slip away... And No matter how I clamored to hold on there was nothing to make them stay... You said ‘Write them down on paper and they might not disappear...’ And as right as you were, it wasn't anything that I wanted to hear... Pull on the mask Cover up the hurt Keep the visions in the dark Until tonight when they erupt Pull on the mask Cover the hurt Keep the visions in the dark Until tonight when they erupt again and reignite the spark Holding the knowledge, speaking softly, seeing faces stained with tears... From the wrong, the hurt, and everything that we've manifested here... And I don't want to release you. Pull on the mask Cover the hurt Keep the visions in the dark Until tonight when they erupt Pull on the mask Cover the hurt Keep the visions in the dark Until tonight when they erupt again and reignite the spark All the voices ask politely Begging for attention Details seem to matter less And I feel as though I'm stationary... Stuck in mud... Running in circles... Biting lip and tongue... Waiting for the moment... When I have the chance to become... What you wanted me to be What the gods and mice and men between envision as free To embody confidence and step with strides that knock down cities. Letting nothing stand between Letting nothing stand between What you wanted me to be What the gods and mice and men between envision as free To embody confidence and step with strides that knock down cities. Letting nothing stand between Letting nothing stand between Regaining consciousness while retaining the entire dream Regaining consciousness while retaining the entire dream It was well worth it.

The Impasse 04:12
Everybody's got their secrets Everybody has those times When they feel like they could never hope To feel satisfied And when we all serve our purpose You'd know that we'd not disappoint I can remember when we used to laugh When we used to laugh I remember when... Every child has it's reason And everybody may respect Although we're still embattled with these lives That we've all compromised Birthed in hope without reason The mottled, spattered blood Drips into the grooves The sacrifice is made I remember when...

Second Guess 04:04
And i don't know just what you need I feel as though I've lost my mind again And i don't know what to do this time I just don't know what to say (but it could mean anything at all) I can't see what this meant to me You knew that it was more than a game And though i'd known by now that It was something entirely less sane (it was the same) Steadfast is the mind Losing over time I don't know why i can't ever hope That you'd open up your eyes and then believe (open up your eyes) What this meant to everybody What this meant to everybody I can't open up your eyes (looking to see and to believe that) Why you don't realize What this means And it seems like it's far from over... I can't open up my eyes (looking to see and to believe that) Why you don't realize What this means And it seems like it's far from over.

Little white lies can tell the truth And if I'm wrong will you need proof? And if I'm right will you promise me To always savor your humanity Chasing halos in the sky Carry me with your mind open wide Carry me on metal wings What emotions will she bring? Be with me Little white lies can tell the truth And if I'm right will you need proof? My valentine has hollow eyes All because of your lies Chasing halos in the sky Carry me with your mind open wide Carry me on metal wings What emotions will she bring? Be with me Chasing halos in the sky Carry me with your mind open wide Carry me on metal wings What emotions will she bring? Tearing at me like a disease Always easier when making me plead You're the bearer of these things Always the bearer of these things Be with me

The Giants 05:15
I said I'd meet my friend down at the tavern To sit a spell and share a drink Two whiskies deep he said, ‘Blame George and Paper Collar! But thanks for all the publicity... ...You're not alone in thinkin' 'bout the water Or about the human soul... Look in the eyes of every sheep before its slaughter, Eager and scared and gullible.’ Back when the giants roamed the earth... Back when they drank of the seas... Back when the giants roamed the earth... So free. ‘If I could I'd sell a man the shirt that he's wearin’, Just to prove a simple fact... Willin' to turn your pockets inside-out for silly stories? You really think you deserve it on your back? ...You're not alone in thinkin' 'bout the culture They been busy tryin' to suppress... It never mattered much to me, The colors on your palette, S'long's i know you got ethics.’ Back when the giants roamed the earth... Back when they drank of the seas... Back when the giants roamed the earth... So free. He asked ‘Why'd you get so quiet? You've been nursin' every drink... I know it's tough, seein' the world for what it is, 'A sucker every minute', so to speak.’ I said, ‘It stains my tongue when I talk about the country... When's the last time you felt relaxed?’ With a grin he shot back, ‘Back when the giants still roamed free." Finishing his drink, he paid and walked out with a laugh... Back when the giants roamed the earth... Back when they drank of the seas... Back when the giants roamed the earth... So free... Back when the giants roamed the earth... Back when they drank deep of the seas... Back when the giants roamed the earth... So free.

So we're showing signs of break up Push and pull the makeup We're spinning through the trees But the leaves, they cannot take it Policy is truth But the truth is strange like fiction The pieces come together but they're suffering division... And the mind is a weapon I'm told Taste from the fruit and see what unfolds Thoughts spread along the eventual horizon Deception is a mask, man Pull it from your eyes, it's... It's time to take a trip up into outer space A time and place where we can never be replaced A single cell stuck surfing somewhere within the singularity And it might seem simple, maybe deceptively so You never noticed, I just wanted you to know that I know I never thought that we would be the ones still searching for the energies... All the energies involved. So precious are the rules that don't define us I see you in your tower Looking down So occupious And while the rabble might shake the rubble down You can rebuild to appeal And Reposition your crown Pour a molotov and kick in the sound For another system That systematically abuses Confuses Diffuse this It's useless Perhaps you should refuse, it's... It's time to take a trip up into outer space A time and place where we can never be replaced A single cell stuck surfing somewhere within the singularity And it might seem simple, maybe deceptively so You never noticed, I just wanted you to know that I know I never thought that we would be the ones still searching for the energies... All the energies involved.

Mixed with a love of eclectic instrumentation and effects, the result is glitched electropop as foreign as it is familiar. ... more
