Track Name: Crescendo
I'll blast off your back as I take to the skies, no stopping me.
Withholding your laughter so that I can smile, stop mocking me.
I'm taking you back 'cause you can't hold the line but all's in tune.
I'm always on top 'cos I can't be denied, except by you.

Find me my role.

I'll do what I want when I feel,
I'll take what I can when I need,
I'm bleeding free, I want it.

You're shouting me down as I stand on my box, imparting truths.
Ignoring me louder than I can definebut I'm immune.
I'm losing a lot 'cause I can't keep the times, but so are you.
You will get yours when I have got mine, and then I'm through.

Remind me to close.

I'd ransom it,
A healing head,
I'm bleeding free, I want it.

I'm building, rekindling,
I'm thinking, and hinting,
the changes are ringing,
and soon it's beginning,
I crave my crescendo

I'm feeling alive, but I'm lonely.

After the fact is too late to be cryin', but so I do.
When all is intact then the broken is mine, but who'll be you?
Track Name: Amphibian
turn a page and then behold,
finger width, much more to go,
nothing wrought and nought to show,
sands slipping.

nothing ventured, nothing gained,
cannot win without the pain,
but to end the listless reign?
enter unkown.

Open your lungs.

surface high and floor below,
placid, safe, predictable,
just wait there until the end,
comes calling.

Venture forth and claim your own,
No-one can prevent your role,
if you fall you can still hold
your head high.

Open your lungs.
Stride out, become,
hybrid, halfway,
to have your day.
Track Name: Exit Plan
Unseen, unclean, untold umpteen times,
It doesn't hurt if no one knows,
The just desserts are growing cold.
There seems to be no reason why.

To bleed for free, alone, unheeded.
Without a scheme to disappear,
Withered and prone, frozen with fear
Why must the suffering persist?
(I'll be your tool)
Can I just fade away to bliss?

Exit plan
i'm out of here
Exit plan

Remind me why I find you so blythe.
Reap, brew, consume, revel, repeat.
Destroyed and empty, obsolete.
I cannot process this at all.

In time, denied, resigned, unsatisfied.
A choice is made by choosing not,
The time has come to stop the rot
I cannot take much more of this.
(I'll be your tool)
To remain sane you must resist.

Exit plan
I'm out of here
Exit plan
Track Name: I Fear Change
Into the bright,
startling light,
I could survive.

and when I'm gone,
I will be done,
it will be done.

Struggle to learn,
awaiting my turn,
starting the burn.

protecting my place,
foot on the brakes,
keeping it safe.

I want to fly,
tasting the sky,
riding the high.

Too much to lose,
What if I lose?
I cannot try.

I fear change and I'm getting old.
I fear change but I'm getting bored.
I like it here, I like my ways, I'm comfortable.
If I'm on fire, let me burn.

Chances appear,
overcome fear,
I could be near.

Try not to choke,
choosing the cloak,
I'm staying here.

Aim for the stage,
A coming of age,
Come to my aid.

Entropy steals,
Exigent pleas,
Exeunt dreams.

think I can see,
unchained and free,
soaring with ease.

Too much to lose,
So much to prove,
I have to choose,

If I'm on fire, if I'm not on fire, set me on fire.

I fear change and I'm getting old.
I fear change but I'm getting bored.
I like it here, I like my ways, I'm comfortable.
If I'm on fire, let me burn.

I seem to strive,
tethered and tied.
Must override.

blind to the tale,
never derailed,
Inert and stale.

I want to take.
Upping the stakes.
Give me some cake.

I cannot find,
solace in time,
why pay the fine?

Into the dark?
Endless and stark?
or beauty of art?

Can't take the chance.
Won't take a stance.
Time waits for no man.

I fear change and I'm getting old.
I fear change but I'm getting bored.
I like it here, I like my ways, I'm comfortable.
If I'm on fire, let me burn.
Track Name: Bob
Fall on me, I'll save your soul.
Incomplete, without us all.

Nameless numbers, let's begin, you are all important.
Count the blessings, look at them, they're not as good as you.
When I know what I know you will know it too.
Feel included, feel adored, and feel the love for you.

For me to resolve this, I'll need you all looking the other way.
I want it to be a nice surprise that I have taken all I can from you.

Take you gifts and service, throw them all away.
You will never need them if you just do what I say.
When I'm gone and you can't contact me,
Then you'll know that I have done all that I can for you.

Call on me, I'll take you whole,
taking up my place in thrall.

Hear the lesson here within, you will never learn it.
Speak when spoken to and question not what you have got.
When I know what I know you will know it too.
That's the trust I place in you and I expect it too.

For me to resolve this, I'll need you all looking the other way.
I want it to be a nice surprise that I have taken all I can from you.

Take you gifts and service, throw them all away.
You will never need them if you just do what I say.
When I'm gone and you can't contact me,
Then you'll know that I have done all that I can for you.

A birdie told me
Track Name: Never
I was born into this bliss
clumps of dirt formed just for my feet
I will always feel like it fits
when you're calling me, I'm alive.

Strong anthropic versus drilled, instilled
Expand some more and I'll get there in the end
There must be more or it would be ugly

it won't conform but i don't like constants
it won't conform but i don't like constants

I am torn by all of these
pretty lights, laws, all seems to fit
I will always feel like a king
while someone controls, I'm alive

there's a plan, and I see it always
designed by hand, I can't be wrong
despite the signs, I'll believe it

I'll never know, but I need to
I'll never know, but I need to

There seems to be a lot of stuff
and the time to add it up
since the start it's always been
and it will until the end
what was before will be again
I don't pretend to understand
so we try to stave off thought
with our gods, our arts, our wars
there's a feeling it's not enough
I'm screaming
Track Name: Self Help
I only just got started, I think I'm nearly done
I feel like I've departed from everything that's good and warm and comfortable.
I feel a ton of nausea and I think I might implode,
I'm kinda glad I caught it and I really hope I'm owed.

I think I need a surgeon, how do you cut a pang?
might just need some urging to take it like a man.
you'd think it would be easy, you'd think I wouldn't mind,
I'm kinda glad I got here without going blind.

It's been but a day yet it feels like a lifetime.
Seems such a waste, seems I've been so, so blind.
Stick round a while see me leave my lifeline,
I think I can win, think I'll beat my self this time.

I feel a little better, enough to not moan,
Lungs filled without shudder, feels like its my own
I don't want another, at least not all the time
Still I hear a mutter, never seems to die.

It's been but a day yet it feels like a lifetime.
Seems such a waste, seems I've been so, so blind.
Stick round a while see me waste my lifeline,
I think I can win, think I'll beat my self this time.
This time.
This time.
Track Name: Groan
You alone can make me groan, think about going home.
Forfeit living like a drone, apathy can control.

Heed my call. Be forewarned. Close that door.

Promised gold from selling souls, delivery times are poor.
Repo man gets tipped some more, pleasure to be your whore.

Open wide. Leave ajar. Kiss goodbye.

Let us go.
Let us go.
Let us go.

Read the script and wait for queue, standing right there will do.
Flash the smile, it sticks like glue, reeling them in, to you.

Heed my call. Be forewarned. Close that door.

Dance the dance that calls them home, hypnotically overflow.
In the end you'll own them all and then you are free to use.

Open wide. Leave ajar. Kiss goodbye.

Let us go.
Let us go.
Let us go.
Track Name: Transition
It seems like a long time has passed.
It feels like a lot for you to ask.
I wish that I knew more of the past.

That feeling, so lonely, I'm grieving but coping.
I wanted to always remain and be known.

It seems like a long time has passed.
It feels like the wrong man was asked.

That feeling, so lonely, I'm grieving but coping.
I wanted to always remain and be known.
Those greetings, unkown, strange eyes shy and foreign.
One future dissolved away, one new, cold and lorn.

I want it all.
I've seen it all.
I kept hold of all.
I dreamt of it all.

I knew you, who are you?
I'm on my own.
I'm new here, new again.
I knew you, I miss you.
I'm on my own.

I want a home.
I've seen my home.
I dreamt of my home.
I slept in my home.

I knew you, who are you?
I'm on my own.
I'm new here, new again.
I knew you, I miss you.
I'm on my own.
I'm on my own.
