Track Name: Intro 51
Time ticks so slowly
I don't recognize the
Thoughts of everyone else that's here
Maybe I am something else
Strange how all the stars will fall

Just another minute just another second and we will look up into the air and maybe see something that no one else has
Seen, these green lines, I beeline, bad crop, shapes come up, lights above,

Everything seems so far out and
Everybody falls apart

I will kill all your fears
There's no way out of here
do you believe in aliens?
Track Name: baby, that's a ufo
No one ever believes me
I just want to finally see things
Papa said he saw a blue light moving
I'm just so hopeful, a light I'm never losing
You tell a story, you tell a story and I love it
I wouldn't make shit up so I believe you
They tell their stories, damn they tell their fucking stories so well
And now my head is full of promises

Love, look at the stars, do you see something that no one says is real
Love, look at the stars, maybe someday you can take me there
Track Name: my brain goes to really weird places when i fall asleep and my dreams are the strangest
There's a place I go when I feel scared and feel alone
It's always taking a breath away
My heart will race and sweat will bead on my brow

I don't think I have anxiety but
I sure feel damn anxious
I don't think I have depression yet
I sure feel sad all the time

I built a bridge with water
It had stayed there in summer heat
I burned the bridge down with fire
We build things up just to take them down

We kill our own friends and replace them with
Cold dead hollow vessels that carry our demands

Just three words, placed in order
"I love you", but don't we all?
Track Name: LA LA LA
Always lock the door
Watching through the window
I'm so paranoid
They say

Life's so godamn introspective
Trying to look at things from a new perspective
La la la that's all I hear
I never was a fan of competition
I don't know where I learned about superstition
La la la that's all they say

Walk the dog for the third time this morning
I always thought my life would be this boring

Suddenly I came to realize now
You'll be the death of me
Look at the sky back to where I belong so long
I'm going back to the moon

I just bought a dime of weed off of the new kid
He tried to tell me all about his thoughts on life, man
Blah blah blah that's all I hear
Smoking with my friends but damn I'm higher than they are
Now I float away, embarrased while they keep on talking
Blah blah blah that's all they say

Taxi cab home and he's trying to talk to me
I might buy a gun off craigslist and shoot myself

Suddenly I came to realize now
You'll be the death of me
Look at the sky back to where I belong so long
I'm going back to the moon
Track Name: i have a funny story to tell you (it's actually really sad and i'll regret telling it to you in the first place)
I'll steal your heart I don't care what they say
You will love me when I hold your beating engine
There's blood everywhere
The things we do for hate
The things we don't for love

The carpet is dirty, the windows are shadowed
The cabinets are dusty, bed is unmade
I lived alone for all but that one night
Please forgive me for not forgetting anything at all

You will save me someday
You will forget me someday

I will die with your face in my mind
You are one that won't be killed by time
For now I cry at the thought of you
Someday I'll maybe smile
Track Name: The Really Cool Ghost Alien
My heart beats fast as I wake in a sweat
Wander to the bathroom so aimless and yet
Looking out the window they keep placing their bets
Will he make it through the day or will he fade like the rest
Of his fathers grandfathers and honored those trotters who
Walked in the shoes through the snow and the heat of
The sun as it beats at their sons to their knees and their
Begging and pleading "why do this to me?" but I
Look in the mirror and see a blank face
Shed not a tear until I leave this place
Maybe the day that they find me in bed lying there
Braindead, I can finally go back home to space

Take me home
Never a metaphor
Take me home
Staring at the sky from the floor
Take me home
I ask for nothing more
Take me home
Track Name: Evelyn
Hey, I kind of miss that night

I was born to live in the past
I think too much about the future
In the present I tend to lose touch
Someone ground me before I break away
Looking to the stars
Maybe you'll see me there
Looking to the stars
I'm not that far

We will see the day when my voice reaches god
We will sieze the day, a precious moment

Gone another second, another minute passes without
Some form of reason, I love the words more than I hate how time is

The music goes
The music goes
It is so beautiful
The godamn way we always lie to each other thinking it will be okay
The godamn days that we love to waste thinking and dying the same

We will see the day when my voice reaches god
We will sieze the day, a precious moment

Gone another second, another minute passes without
Some form of reason, I know the world more than I hate how time is gone

The funny thing is, there was a chorus here
I hate repition yet I abide by my fears
I was gone by lightyears on that wicked night, dear
But something will shed light here, as I hear a mighty scream
I had something written for this, I had wandered through the forest
Then I said go fuck the chorus, I will hate myself but adore this
Single line it ticks with time it doesn't rhyme but still stays final
Into the vial my mission is vital because I write the most profound phrase I could sing
Track Name: Great Dane
Don't you think that maybe the crazy people are the sane ones and the normal people are actually strange? Or is that just me?

Walking in the rain again
I forgot to bring my sweater
Everyone loves to remind me
How stupid I am
Sure everyone makes some mistakes
But the frequency of mine is stunning
Maybe they're right and I'm getting duller

Surely that can't mean I'm as wise as I think I am

As a child I never ate my greens
I lived 'round smoke since before my teens
If there's I've learned it's that nothing is as it seems

Surely that can't mean I'm as wise as I think I am

In my youth I ate dust and sugar
I forced myself thin so I could be a looker
If I've learned anything then I've learned not to trust true wonder

Thunder shatters black glass pane windows
Fields fly by aflame and widowed
Their lover lakes have all dried up so
Soon and the moon has fallen
Home foundations sink and swim
Ocean current rise into the thin
Air and the mountains collapsed so long
Ago, as did I

There's a possibility that I'm just overreacting
But this world just does not look real to me
My own body doesn't feel attached to my head
I doubt I will feel any different when I'm gone and dead

The boy was allowed one more night at home, under close watch by the federal officers. They let him watch Tom and Jerry and use his phone, though he seemed distracted from both of those activities. He instead had wandering eyes, two eyes that wandered along the walls. The letters he had written in his mind in blood on the door seemed crooked. He stood up and said "I am going to get a drink of water."
The boy never intended to harm anyone but his actions disobeyed his motivations. Voices joined in chorus within his mind and chanted for him to do it. He killed everyone in the room with the knife he found in an evidence bag left where it shouldn't have been. The dull blue-white room was now in sharp contrast with the bright red shades of human blood. No one had a chance to defend themselves, they never thought the kid would kill again. They had believed in him. Little did they know he had broken for the last time, and his sanity was no longer intact.
But it doesn't end. It never ends.
The boy took the stairs in his apartment building up to the top floor. He tried opening a window by the elevator only to find it was locked. But that did not stop him. He took a large plant pot off of the small table by the bench. He heaved it through the window, shattering glass seven stories down to the street below. He smiled, crying, hysterically laughing as he spoke "I can fly, I can fly, I can fly!" He sliced his hands open on the broken glass as he climbed up over the open frame. His body fell quickly, and his intent was suicide.
But instead of hitting the ground, stars rose around him. Planets drifted by, creatures chased him through the cosmic setting. He saw colors he'd never seen before. Massive pyramids, mechanical in nature, descended about his vision. This continued for several minutes until it all was sucked away. The boy turned around and saw it.
A gateway.
He peered through and witnessed everything he had ever wanted. He would be okay. What he had done had not mattered. He would be okay.
And he never died.
Track Name: We Only Sleep Sometimes But I Wouldn't Know
You are so boring
This is my bored face
But not according to the ones who took your frame
You used to be cool
This is the new school
But not according to the ones who took your name

I used to like you
You were who I'd be nice to
But now you have changed and it makes me sad...
We used to talk more
Now where do you wander?
Since you have changed I am still so sad...

As if you would ever hear this song
Please go out to prove me wrong
I would have to wait so long
I might as well go to sleep tomorrow night

Remember a friendship?
It was so endless
Now I have not seen you in months
You were my brother
Until one Summer
Then you became a stranger all at once

We shared the same room
Now it's one dark gloomy
Place for me to sleep...
No one to talk to
We even moved
Not that you'd know or care to see...

As if you'd ever hear this song
Please go out to prove me wrong
I would have to wait so long
I might as well go to sleep tomorrow night

As if I'll sleep by tomorrow night
Without you to turn off the lights...
Track Name: No More Vibes
I clean my plate and I drink my milk
I always bathe and I tidy my room
I do my homework and I show up on time
I am kind to others and I dress real nice

Tell the author of my story
That I'm way out of character
The script tells me that I'm better
and that I should use bigger words
I really never understood the
Poem that you sang to me
Roses are red, violets are blue
Insignificance

When the sun falls down I turn the headlights on and maybe my high beams
I hit another deer by accident regardless
I fuck things up though I'm trying my hardest
But that's alright, I'll let you be mad at me
So I say

Tell the author of my story
That I'm way out of character
The script tells me that I'm better
and that I should use bigger words
I really never understood the
Poem that you sang to me
Roses are red, violets are blue
Insignificance

I get it now
It all makes sense
we are insignificant
Welcome to space
I get it now
It all makes sense
You are special
The story ends when you do

That's why we'll live forever
