Track Name: Foundation Myth
I am a message
Won't you help deliver me

I might not look traditional
Ones and zeros in front of me
And the center of this conspiracy
We all know and love
And I try not to let it under my skin

I should know better than to follow you through the desert
Smoke and fire is the only way I know how to purify
all the things that cross my path
On the way to a mark that counts for more
Than I can quantify without a means to track
The combination is lost and the key is gone
It's all I have
What more?

I am a message
Deliver me
Track Name: Stationary
Just when you thought it was safe to turn out the lights
light up the way for a revolutionary
Only if I wrote it down and kept it close
kept it close to my chest for the sake of posterity

I can recall evertthing that you said to me
hold it above my head and wait for judgement
Don't you recall if I won that you'd pay my price
Don't you know the best advice comes twice

Bonds of chemistry's greater
than all words you wrote down on paper

So you got one more reason to live
in light of this rate of oscilation
No one is going to turn their head for you
Only believe what your eyes were sold

Maybe I should
have wrote it down
on my stationary
Track Name: House Fire
Our bed has been tainted
by another lover
The scent is so tasteless
the same as empty vapor

Get out while you can
our house is on fire

You said
"there's more to this"
I hope you stuck around to find out why
you got these words to save yourself a trip
through theses gates of hell to find
You said that's what you know
there's more to this
than you'll ever find

How is it all the same
No one to feel your pain
No one to hear your cries

Get out while you can
our house is on fire
Track Name: Safe Vacation Destinations
Wake me up slowly while I die

Maybe I should
fill my lungs with air
and save my oxygen

This is the reason I know
I hope you made a safe choice
for your vacation destination

There is a reason I know
I can make change in ten denominations
This is the answer

There's a reason I keep
my passport around my neck
my foreign embassy will not save me now

There's no reaction
this is it
Last chance for outside contact
I hope you made a safe a choice for your vacation destination
I hope you made
There's no escape now
this is answer

There's a reason I keep
my passport around my neck
my foreign embassy will not save me now

Maybe I should
fill my lungs with air
and save my oxygen

Wake me up slowly while I die
Track Name: Methods & Procedures
I think you're doing it wrong
and I think you know it too
I wouldn't change a thing
because you look so beautiful
when you're doing it wrong
I want to know what goes on inside
So I can plan for the future

Mark down the balance and weight
function of scale and the pace
let me know when you're ready

I don't know where you are
I dont know what you do

I might not try to find my way
back to your arms and die.
Track Name: Guarded and Safe
Close the window
I'm trying to keep my baby warm
Draw the shades down
down I'm trying keep my baby fair
Keep the door locked
I'm trying to save my baby from harm
Run, run, run the water
I'm trying to keep my baby clean
Turn the lights down
I'm trying to let my baby sleep
Track Name: Time/Place
So there's somewhere else you would
much rather be than here
well, now is not the time or place to voice complaints

I might be wrong
it hasn't been the first time
please don't leave without taking your thoughts

I'm sure it won't be the last time
and that's all right by me
ain't no sweat off my back
don't let me keep you because it took you longer
than you thought to get up in the air
don't let me keep you from your air

mark my words
there's no such place as heaven
flowers on my grave
bodies wilt

i know it took you longer than you thought
to get up in air
mark my words
there's no such place as heaven
flower on my grave
they will degrade.
