Track Name: Foolish Pride
I have found clarity with in this mind
yet I have an angry soul
now tell me how is it that i've lost it
if i never ever even had control
self sabotage is the game we play
there is no time to side with today.

and i don't want your foolish pride
chasing your selfish shadow through the night.
you can keep your gawd damned foolish pride.
Track Name: Fancy Lines
The part you like is sure to change
but you've paid your attention
protesting
for christ sakes
well what about your sake
and just what in the hell was i trying to prove
i chose not to walk those lines
i'm broken by your rules

and my fancy himalayan lines
are folded by your conscience
into tiny little paper dolls
i was interrupted by the crow that oscar stanley brought home
coincidence, no not at all
Track Name: Coat of Arms.
I'm standing by with my coat of arms
discourage my urges with all this crude noise
and for so long i've looked at you
from so far away
yes i'm standing my with my coat of arms
snatching defeat from victories jaws
and for so long i've looked at everything
from so far away
Track Name: i've been mad for quite some time now.
actions misplaced
and during this race
i 've realized too late
where do we go from here
the directions are unclear
and the presentation is aimed directly towards me
but i still can't see
anything
i scream inside
yet i'm quiet all the while
and i sit around all day
and watch my dreams fly away.
Track Name: Neither do You.
i don't talk much and neither do you
neither do you neither do you
i don't sleep much and neither do you
neither do you neither do you
i don't grieve much and neither do you
neither do you neither do you
a flick of the tongue
say a little pun
laugh at the square
this isn't fun.
Track Name: Picking Up the Man.
I had lots of fun
no more lying
on my back looking at clouds
way up high in the sky
most of my friends have died
and I can't make it good too many times
i've lost my mind

bananas and beer it's just not clear
what in the hell am i doing here again
my friends
i'm sitting in the middle of nowhere
open road
broken heart
all my friends are dead ( it's time to go)
Track Name: executive suites
and i feel as tho i've done something wrong
could it be i who has offended someone
i see you there with your practical structure stand true
yet i don't know what to do

and i feel as tho i've done something wrong
could it be our revolution has offended someone
want. wish. like. desire. expect.
kiss. lower. dance. bullet.

double standard constitution
american dream executive suites
sunday morning here in our church
with all hands on alert.

( i fill my head with so many words
and i use my mouth to kick them back out
devils, drugs, or doctors...who do i sell my soul to
devils, drugs, or doctors who are you going to run to?

i'm juggling knives to stay alive
stick edens fork in my eye
devils, drugs, or doctors...who do i sell my soul to
devils, drugs, or doctors who are you going to run to?)
