Track Name: Crosswalk
No day did I see my
Image of God.
No one consulted me
Before I was made.

Before there was Light,
There was Nothing, alright.
Listen to my Insight
Of the Seven Days.

Lead me through the Crosswalk;
Eyes closed, through the traffic.
I’ll become a Fixture
Of my, of my City:
A favorite Faucet,
Dripping all night long.
I am a Homeless Man.
Pay me. Lord, please pay Me.

Purpose is a result
Of Existence.
One day, I was born.
I felt it ever since.

Lead me through the Crosswalk;
Eyes closed, through the traffic.
I’ll become a Fixture
Of my, of my City:
A favorite Faucet,
Dripping all night long.
I am a Homeless Man.
Pay me. Lord, please pay Me.
Track Name: Lation
What it is?
What it isn’t?
What it is?
What it isn’t?

Weekly Vacation in your Head
Five millions Cats are laughing there
Listic exercise, Davil zone
Darbo is the hand of God.

If you don’t you might as well find
A reason not to, any reason will do
Cause if you don’t somebody will
Lation is a thing I believe in.

Lation is a way
A way for everyone
Even Human beings
If you know you know

What it is?
What it isn’t?
What it is?
What it isn’t?
Track Name: Weird Guy
I’m just a weird guy,
Cause I don’t wanna look in your eyes
I dont wanna talk about the sky
Not convinced I care about the life

Filling up the bodies
Filling up the bodies
Filling up the bodies
Filling up the bodies

In a room so full
X-ray on my skull
Delighted to meet you. May I?
Hey, how was your day?
What do you like to eat?
These scripted lines are my white lies.

I’m not an actor.
Unless I want to be.
Track Name: Neon Blood
Gonna be on to somethin’ when I wake up alive.
There’s nothing concrete on my tangential high.
Won’t know anything when I lay down to die.
Angels watching over me, but I can’t hear them cry.
Angels watching over me, but I can’t hear them cry.

Fish are swimming down the stream,
But I am skipping school.
Everyone is cooler than me,
But everybody thinks I’m cool.

Life is here to entertain while I waste my time.
King me on the checkerboard of that selection game.
Dimming down the social light, let my animal shine.
Fill my blood with neon cause I am an open sign.
Fill my blood with neon cause I am an open sign.

Fish are swimming down the stream,
But I am skipping school.
Everyone is cooler than me,
But everybody thinks I’m cool.
Track Name: Equality
Equality
Equality
We are all Equal
I must disagree

We’re not equal.
We’re not equal.
Get rid of the scale,
So it cannot tip.

Limited visions make you take your side.
The unknown is the melting pot.
My home is the melting pot.
Nothing’s worth fighting for.

No propaganda.
No Equality.
What you don’t believe is what you believe.

I’m speaking out against speaking out.
I’m speaking out against speaking out.

When you pray to God,
Or Athiest,
What you don’t believe is what you believe.

I’m speaking out against speaking out.
I’m speaking out against speaking out.

Inversion, conversion, perversion,
Just wring me out.

Inversion, conversion, perversion,
Just wring me out.
Track Name: Erase Myself
Never felt so belonging in this skin.
People are only people, and I feel akin.
For once, for now, bow like a Sunday school play.
Or like a boat
Instant replay football and tomorrow they’ll be fine

Finally now I found myself
I had to look hard
Hid behind the others on the shelf
I held on to my ego
It was the worst trip, I have ever had to go on
Scream the blues into a crowd
I can’t believe I
Took so long to figure it out
Finally now I found myself
I had to work hard
Erase myself before I can be seen

They’ve got community, and I’ve got mine.
Be kind, be kind
And meditate on that

He worked too hard, just tell me the idea
Save yourself 17 years, I say
Track Name: Applecore
-ly misunderstood,
but my wiggle words
are worm eaten.
Would you in Eden?

Even then you were
naked and taken
to tan your
skin on the heat of the sun.

Your applecore, it says to me,
Go to hell, he died on the cross for.
Apple of my eye, it says to me,
slip away into the branches.
I’m ready to eat your seeds they got
Cyanide that fill me with poison, but

We didn’t know how
to know better
than you did. You
Go away, you really go away
When you play the baby
Track Name: Who You
Who you to got lesson for me?
Who you to got lesson for me?
I don’t want to learn.
I don’t want to learn.

I’ll speak my mind if you ask me to.
I’ll speak my mind if you ask me to.
It might not be much,
But that is enough.
Track Name: tiny mind MASSIVE soul
Oh my tiny mind, massive soul

Tune to the universe, and the universe will tune to you.
Track Name: We'll Be Seein' Ya Now
Drift into the limitless unknown
Boomerang into my senses sewn
Ask to see and soon you will be shown
Wasted ember spectral feeling glow

We’ll be seein’ ya now,
In the future times to come
I can’t wait
To be your friend again

We’ll be seein’ ya now,
Find not a way to be
But find yourself
Being on the way
