Track Name: Seasick Sympathy
Morning in paradise, I roll over in my bed
Rolling incognito dice all throughout my head.
I turn down the music and raise the alarms.
I might just lose it and I come to harm.

My seasick sympathy shining in the wind
But my fantasy grows far too thin.

Can't you see the irony
Directly beneath me?
Another forgotten scream.
Just more seasick sympathy.

I got to the finish line but didn't cross
'Cause I heard the sirens sing to me,
Just telling me that I had lost
With a face of gross, so sickly green.

I need to breathe.
I need to breathe.
I forgot to believe.
I need to breathe.

The world is at it's end
But we don't know it.
We just sit there,
Remembering dead poets.

I stand up amongst the fallen angels,
Twisted and turned consumed in tangles.
My own soul in mangles,
The chains all wrapped around my ankles.

I need to breathe.
I need to breathe.
I forgot to believe.
I need to breathe.

Seasick sympathy
Shining in the wind
But my fantasy
Grows far too thin.

I got nothing to lose,
I got the drowning blues,
I got dirty shoes,
I got the news.

I need to breathe.
I need to breathe.
I forgot to believe.
I need to breathe.

Seasick Sympathy,
I need to breathe.
I forgot to believe
My dearest fantasy.
Track Name: Working
Take your pick
Do whatever you want
Choose it
Come and get it done

Working so long
Fighting so hard
Trying so much
To not tire

Hurry quick
Race against the clock
Forget
Tear apart your locks

Working so long
Fighting so hard
Trying so much
To not tire

Do not stick
Around for the end
Finished
Run away with friends

Working so long
Fighting so hard
Trying so much
To not tire
Track Name: So Fast
Do you ever get the feeling the days just go on by?
No time for talk, no time for walk, I'm just a normal guy.
The papers keep on stackin', I wish I could be packin'
My bags to get me to far, far away.

Clocks just keep on tickin', time just keeps on spinnin'.
I feel my mind degrading as the minutes go away.
But there's a silver lining, I know that I ain't lying.
All you need it time, time, time.

It just keeps slippin'.
Some things are missin'.
Time is all I know
And it's going so fast.

How many, how much, what, which, and why?
The enemy of nostalgia turns out to be sly.
Where can you find the garden of your mind?
The seeds are planted deep between the lines.

I never am able to pay all the costs,
Searching for all the time that I have lost.
I repetitively do everything again,
Repeating my life, I never seem to win.

It just keeps slippin'.
Some things are missin'.
Time is all I know
And it's going so fast.

(Hey, hey, hey)

It just keeps slippin'.
Some things are missin'.
Time is all I know
And it's going so fast.
Track Name: Wonderful Day to Fly
It's always sunny up here,
Out near the stratosphere.
I don't have a care in the world
When I'm always with my girl.
It's a wonderful day to go fly.

Drink in hand, I haven't got a plan.
I hope this flight doesn't have to land.
A first class seat can't be beat.
When you look out the view is neat.
It's a wonderful day in the clouds.

It's always sunny up here,
Out near the stratosphere.
I don't have a care in the world
When I'm always with my girl.
It's a wonderful day to go fly.

Can't you see? You're who I want to be with.
Hell, you're what I need.
Crystal blue eyes and crystal blue skies,
I'm enamored with your crystal disguise.
It's a wonderful when you're around.

It's always sunny up here,
Out near the stratosphere.
I don't have a care in the world
When I'm always with my girl.
It's a wonderful day to go fly.

On this pale blue dot, I refuse to rot.
When I reach the skies, I still won't stop.
I look below and I know it's so:
The stars above are where I have to go.
It's just a wonderful day.

It's always sunny up here,
Out near the stratosphere.
I don't have a care in the world
When I'm always with my girl.
It's a wonderful day to go fly.
Track Name: Black and White TV
Her mind is tired and complacent,
She's lost in an ancient dream
Like something you find adjacent
To a black and white TV.

I surf the channels every day
But it always stays the same.
There's no color inside your brain,
And that's driving me insane.

Your like a black and white TV,
A relic from the fifties.
Your like a black and white TV,
Set your mind free.
Please, please, please.

This boy digs the legends.
There's nothing wrong with that
But he needs to catch up to the present
And pull out of the past.

I surf the channels every day
But it always stays the same.
There's no color inside your brain,
And that's driving me insane.

Your like a black and white TV,
A relic from the fifties.
Your like a black and white TV,
Set your mind free.
Please, please, please.

Na, nana, na, nana, na, nana.
Na, nana, na, nana, na, nana.
Na, nana, na, nana, na, nana.
Na, nana, na, nana, na, nana.

I surf the channels every day
But it always stays the same.
There's no color inside your brain,
And that's driving me insane.

Your like a black and white TV,
A relic from the fifties.
Your like a black and white TV,
Set your mind free.
Please, please, please.

You know what? Just forget it.
Track Name: Honey, Can't You
Honey, don't you know me?
I was born next to you.
Honey, can't you see me?
I'm standing beside you.

Oh darling, can't you hear me?
I'm yelling at you.
Oh darling, can't you smell me?
My corpse is rotting next to you.

Someday when I wake up
You'll see me standing there,
A ghost of my screw ups
Tangled in your hair.

Honey, can't you feel me?
My arms are around you.
Honey, can't you remember me
When I sat right next to you?

Oh darling, can't you feed me?
I'm running out of food.
Oh darling, you know it's me.
Can you do what I need you to do?

Someday when I wake up
You'll see me standing there,
A ghost of my screw ups
Tangled in your hair.

Honey, can't you get me?
'Cause I'm trying to get you.
Honey, can't you help me?
'Cause I'm drowning without you.

Oh darling, can't you lay me
Down in a hole with you.
Oh darling, you have slain me
With a shotgun known as you.

Someday when I wake up
You'll see me standing there,
A ghost of my screw ups
Tangled in your hair.
Track Name: Hey Albatross
Hey Albatross, how you doing?
Well, I'm doing fine
Even if you don't want to answer me,
Just know you're in the back of my mind.

Somehow, somewhere, something
Something doesn't seem doesn't seem quite right
I'm going about my busy day
Working to reach new heights
I'm smiling and laughing, and crying tears of joy
Everything seems quite nice
But inside I can hear you chirp
Skinned by a hunter's knife

Hey Albatross, how you doing?
Well, I'm doing fine
Even if you don't want to answer me,
Just know you're in the back of my mind.

Everything I knew before
Hasn't changed at all
All my emotions are still picked out
From the stores at a shopping mall
But now I find myself worrying
That I'm gonna fall
And except you no one can catch me
I guess I got too tall

Hey Albatross, how you doing?
Well, I'm doing fine
Even if you don't want to answer me,
Just know you're in the back of my mind.

Where did everyone go?
Everyone that I used to know
Well, Mary had a little lamb
Its fleece was as white as snow
Bird you got tangled in that wool
And made the alphabet hit a new low
And now the letters that make up 'love' and other words
Will have to regrow

Hey Albatross, how you doing?
Well, I'm doing fine
Even if you don't want to answer me,
Just know you're in the back of my mind.

Reason says differently
But I don't want you to leave me alone
I pray on your every word
But I can't stand the pecking inside my dome
So get the hell out of here
I guess my heart will turn to stone
I'll sit in a mighty castle
And degrade as I dream of chrome

Hey Albatross, how you doing?
I'm not doing fine
I know you won't ever answer me
So I'm just gonna leave you behind

You can fly away into the storm
You can fly to a heaven above
Just make sure you're not near here
Throw me beneath the rug
If over the edge what's meant for me
Just give me that final shove
If the only things I believe in don't make sense
I guess I've had enough.
