Track Name: Under The Sea
In the middle of a long dark hallway
An emergency therapist behind glass:
Break glass in case of nervous breakdown

Failing expectations and letting ambitions shatter
And millions of faceless people screaming what’s the matter
I smashed through the window when I jumped from the rafters
And landed in an open field in Central Nebraska

Break glass and sound the alarm
Track Name: How We Made It
When I was a little fat kid I got lost in the frame
Of staring at thin happy kids and wanting to be the same
So I ran to get tougher and deal with my anger
And I wrapped myself in books because I thought I’d get smarter

When I was a little fat kid I got lost in the frame
Of staring in the mirror and wishing for a different name
And flexing muscles that weren’t there and lamenting losing hair
And hoping someday things would get better if I had a little fame

But now I can’t stop dreaming of wearing a dress
And having smooth hairless skin and shaved thin legs
And my thin body comfortably fits in a petite sweater
Every day I convince myself that if I was a girl I’d feel better

Well I still feel depressed and I still feel depressed
No matter how much I get on stage to confess
That when I was little fat kid I got lost in the frame
Now the frame is smaller but I still feel the same

Now I’m sick
Get sick and get used to living outside
Well I still feel depressed and I still feel depressed

Everyone’s eyes need to be wide open.
Full body awareness. Full recognition of surroundings.
Mind connected to the soul connected to the feet and feet connected to the floor.
Palms tingling. Pupils dilating. Adrenaline rising.

Everyone’s eyes are wide open:

I’m she and you’re he and they’re they and they’re they and I can be whatever I need to be and you can be whatever you need to be

Now I’m sick
Get sick and get used to living outside
Track Name: First Friday
Might be down but I know what I want

Michael leave the lights on
Don’t let the door shut
Michael let the sink run
Don’t let the fire die

Michael left the lights on and then he went outside
To swim in the dark and see what he could find
Michael left the door open and he never came back
Michael had a train and he ran it off its tracks

These trees look like living machines
Disguised as human beings
They run they run they run into the sea
Or fly into a treetop canopy

These viruses feel like human beings
Disguised as living machines

Might be down but I know what I want and I want it

Knock knock knock and all the doors start to shudder
The fireplace groans and the windows start to stutter
Track Name: 24/7
24/7, 34/7, 44/7, 54/7, 64/7, 74/7, 84/7, 94 hours a day

If you want to tune in because you gotta drop out
Tune into this beat and then turn it up loud
Make your neighbors hear it and make your parents hear it
And make your brother hear it and make your sisters hear it
If you want to tune in because you gotta drop out
We’ve got a sound for you to turn up loud
Make your neighbors hear it and make your parents hear it
And make your brother hear it and make your sisters hear it

I want to tune in because I need to tune out

24/7. 34/7. 44/7. 54/7, 64/7, 74/7, 84/7, 94/7
We do it 24/7, 34/7 put the sound in your head and go straight to heaven

We play anything we want.

They grabbed us and they said if you don’t like it then get the fuck out.
If you don’t like it get the fuck out.
We said yeah we don’t like it so we’ll get the fuck out.
Now we’re out.
We play anything we want.

If you want to tune in because you gotta drop out
Of the monotonous garbage that’s knocking you around
Then tune into this and tune them all out
Throw a rotten tune in the trash
Or give it new life
Or leave your boring songs in the sun
Leave your boring songs in the sun

We play anything we want.
Track Name: Over The Moon
Should heaven decline to take me
Leave me in the shade of the tallest tree
