“Not right now, another time” Just need a moment to unwind Had a hard day of nothing at all As I watch my motive stall There’s nowhere I have to be There’s nothing I have to see A digital life of situations A chemical goal called aggravation Answering no questions Just sitting and stalking Movement: now a second option Just make sure nobody’s watching Got no ideas of my own Every thought’s become a loan But I’ll never pay it back As news trends come to attack I can see nothing happening here Deny opportunity, guaranteeing fear Backwash of society, left all to your self To your self Who Has the time To Kill Time Not Me Quiet room full of heads Personality is dead Gather round, get the fit Too easy to ever quit Time to compact and confine What’s left of your human mind Become us or stay as one Or think and then you will be done No reflection on yourself Will not help at all Time taken for granted Will point to your downfall There’s one time and one chance That life will pass you by One time, yes one time
Kicking in the back, the liquidated minds Unable to stand the test of time The situations further with mediocrity You just can’t decide on who to be And now You know that we’re doing okay And it’s all just a game that we play You know that I’ve stayed everything Unto this very day Leave it to the wind to tell me who you were It’s relapse to the world, your person is a blur The test rat awaiting cosmetic surgery You just can’t decide on who to be
Face The Day 03:13
Sun’s long past it’s rising And still you have closed eyes The gears have started turning Making noise you despise The open road to nowhere Has seemed to call your name But in the bitter end It’s you that gets the blame So come face the day (come face the day) But do it your own way Come face the day (come face the day) Don’t waste away Tossing and turning Into the summer’s day Incentive not burning Potential gone away Forgetful of the time Because you can’t go back It’s time to have an outcome It’s time for you to act
White Woman 02:00
Create with me a baby Purchase me a house A life of every luxury provided by my spouse Another useless paperweight, another glass of wine Another dog and cat in here will do just fine You’re just another standard white woman (white woman) Swimming in the fish tank you’ve been given You’re just another standard white woman (white woman) Taught only to cook, clean, and listen Break out of the box you wouldn’t dare to do Repetitive behavior is the life for you You can’t escape the 50's, you can’t escape today It’s sad that you choose to live your life this way Now you are retiring at age 45 Depending on the other to sustain your life Grandchildren and private schools are high up in your mind Just another story of the average housewife
It’s getting dark And it’s getting late How can you take this So seriously Night time falls again They’re the night time freaks Know they’ll get you And midnight's not too late Recruiting time No time to waste Cuz they’re sending your mind Into outer space
It’s time to watch this Every night I gotta watch this How many times I gotta start this? Here we’re going again I’m going insane cuz I have to see The same scenarios on my TV Just to get her to come to bed with me Another girl called, she’s coming tonight I haven’t gotten any new plans in sight Another night of Jim Carrey will do us fine Cuz it’s the same movie with a different girl Just about happens every night Why spend money on a new one when the same does the job just right Some go to dinner, some to the game I’d rather be at home doing just the same Straight to-the-point is the name of my game Some question my silly ways And I have just one thing to say These are the plans for the rest of my days
They came from metal arms and claws In boxes they were hurled And programmed with synoptic thoughts to live in this world No questioning of right or wrong The same way they all lived Curriculum of daily life used as a sedative The secret, secret laboratory The secret, secret laboratory Made in secret, secret laboratory The secret, secret laboratory Mile-long conveyor belts distributing these clones From scrap metal and cardboard to the next suburban home Their first words like their last words were so trivial and dull Nothing from outside the box had come out of their skull The people went forgotten since they never made a sound The gray cold hopeless tombstones blended right in with the ground Never questioned being under such a terrible curse Just an understanding for life on planet Earth
Flat World 05:22
One organic choice says come together Until the bits and pieces break apart A condescending light weak for a moment Future foretold darkness from the start Was initiation a mistake? Cuz we can only make out what’s been given It’s our choice to say or live the quote We will be the same thing in the end Some will go the journey all alone Sour taste and discord rule the hour Envy turns to spite then turns to me Indifferent is the way we enter culture And replace life with mass tranquility Are you all even really awake?
No time to deal with retribution And I regulate my own conclusion Too much free time: a detriment And I proceed at my own consent This is suffering This is wondering This is tragedy This is not for me I built a barrier for my sake Now petty games are not at stake And I’ll focus on the greater option There’s no time here for fence-walking
Mystery Line 05:52
He opened the door And approached the path Started to walk down With no looking back His words were pronounced hard His thoughts were scattered far An insomniac through night Too tampered was his life Witnessed the steps Slow was the pace The past was present From face to face Anticipation gathered The mind: eager to know It was hidden for too long And at last it will now show Because that’s the life we’re settled in We just go with the flow Assume too much for nothing The truth will never show Anticipation And deprivation High blend of fear The answers so near The steps: within reach It became time to see How many and how long That went and did him wrong His jaw to the ground Visions of grief Because what he saw Was beyond belief Fists now clamped tight The anger and the might How could have they broken Every word they’d spoken
This is a test of might Don’t want to think of that moment in time Recollection of good times must show Cuz I don’t ever want to see you go But that day It won’t change for me No way Will that day change me You built my motivation Backlined my concentration Reverence you have already won Your gift will last for generations All of my life since I was young No one to talk to and nowhere to run Where was a kid like me supposed to go? Well I was back and forth and I was place to place And then I heard what you had to say Now this is the only life I’ll ever know Won’t take to living in fear Won’t think the end is coming near Will go recycle and repeat your thoughts Cuz what I’ve got from you can never be bought
Continuous New Behavior New creatures around me New structures Fundamentals past me I’m ready Creatures looking with open eyes Moving forth with open minds Walked away from grievance and deception Living a life into concrete On that path we’ll never meet Convention is detention in the long run Continuous
If you think I’m working You’ll be dead wrong Cuz I’m hiding out back Writing this song Who cares about your company Don’t you know I’ll always Weasel my way out To “Smile and say hi” I’ll be the last I’m not a robot That way I’ll never act I’m up early each day For minimum wage Barely getting paid What a complete waste
Tender past happenings Ignore them all at once Send them far from this dimension Bring pleasure up front Cancelling what brought you hope Forget what you can’t see How could it be ever known This is what’s to be And I know It’s not alright And I need To make it right And nothing will be easy Until it’s out of sight, no So this is how you wanna meet? Like a person on the street So this is how you wanna meet? You’ve forgotten that it’s me Continue to hide yourself Behind your own walls Lock the door, shut it tight Start making your calls I knew I shouldn’t have come here Instinct should have told me I’m left to fill up space again How can you not see?! Years have come and gone now And still I can’t see past The time wasted behind me It all went by too fast With no room for forgiveness And no time for a chance The result is apparent I’ve gone and took my stance
