I know how numb some types of life can make you feel Left you wondering where your friends have gone Wish I could fit somewhere, wishin for a station that fits my drive Wish we could jump ahead How backwards we have come And I know and I know we're gonna get kicked down during the fight And I know and I know that most of us are hurting inside And it's hard when all sides think they're right History loves to repeat History la la la loves to repeat Over and over, over and over, over and over in my mouth Over and over, over and over, over and over in my mouth How did it get so bad? How did such ugliness stir up? How can I say I'm free? I've given you rights to keep on tracking me And the eye in the sky will be watching down like a God up above And I know that I saw some beauty around I must dig it up Let you know if some turns up I drop my head from time to time I drop my head from time to time As long as it knows it has to get back up It can have the break from time to time I know how numb some types of life can make you feel The hatred thanks to fear is real So just keep on mixing, mix all people Soon enough and we'll all belong Keep on mixing, mix all people Swirl enough and we'll all belong How did it get so bad? How did such ugliness stir up? How can I say I'm free? I've given you rights to keep on tracking me

Alien FM 03:16
You try slipping from what we have See what welcomes you Cause I see you try to anchor in our sanctuary And leave it behind at the same time When you feel the comfort of our time to come A stillness is undone Just go and wander There in the sugarcanes Of another's brain, stale love Alien FM, stale love Interference again, stale love I can never tell just what you're always thinking of but It's not me, repeatedly you're Calling from a train Or some other place You lean our love on these with grace “Oh, I'm gonna lose you, I'm headed for the tunnel where we lose connection” Of another's brain, stale love You're crystal now But there you'll be gone You're crystal now

Koh-I-Noor 04:46
Carry me on one shoulder I have had too much I'm let down In a search for a financial cure I've met rats Reliant, trapped What is good for me, doesn't pay I'm a fake So close to winning the game Even closer to fooling heart Haven't furniture, only fine clothes To attract real wealth Depthless, out of my element Inside of my cage It's when you're afraid but you Don't know what you're afraid of What is good for me, can not pay for me I've been led astray I'm let down, take me up Caught my bluff Make a fortune Was the trick Lured away A place where things go together Turns out it's a real thing

Buy to return Buy to return Every week It gives you something to do Something to prove No one knows where you are, when you drive Strapped in Staring at a red light Don’t you know what’s next to buy next week? Line after line, never needed reasons Line after line, any time of day Next is your turn No need for policy signs You got them all memorized, you say Hi Ruth, you have to help me You never saw me here Is it ever happening to you, when you’re Staring at a red light Don’t you know what’s next to buy next week? What is all this white sugar Torture in the whites of your eyes Something to quit, or to take up To change, or just leave behind Staring at a red light Staring at a red light Don’t you know what’s next to buy next? One last time Nothing fits right Dead on line Ruth I need a change, need another size

Tangled in my garments Ran out of space Will I ever get to wear all of this? Do I even like any of it? Cheap shit I never looked the way I pictured The way I want End up wearing the same old top and bottoms There are some men I don't want looking at my parts The same, same old top and bottoms Day in, day out Wish I could wear what I want to wear Wishing to find what I want to wear Then wishing to afford what I want to wear What fits my body? What fits a stick with a belly? End up wearing the same old top and bottoms There are some men I don't want lookin' at my bottom The same, same old top and bottoms Day in, Day out I just don't know what I'm doing Some people really know a thing I just can't feel what I'm doing Some people really know a thing Do I even like any of it? Do I even like any of it? Cheap shit I never looked the way I pictured The way I want, it's always strange I try it on, it never works for me and Will I ever stop looking for the right thing? End up wearing the same old top and bottoms Tangled up in the same old top and bottoms Day out

Deseo 05:10
Recorto una rama aquí Pellizco una hoja Giralo y mira el reflejo de un árbol Para ver si está bien Para ver cuánto tardará en repararse así mismo Para lograr un aspecto mas natural Espero que viva mucho tiempo Eso es lo que deseo Aplasto el pecho aquí Aprieto la cintura Giralo y mira el reflejo de una persona Para ver si se ve bien Para ver cuánto tiempo le llevará repararse así mismo Para lograr un aspecto mas natural Espero que viva mucho tiempo Eso es lo que deseo

Tell me I'm desensitized Tell me porn is poisonous That it dulls my pure desire You don't know me Or my taste Taste in movies Not so naïve To expect my touch to mirror Don't you borrow scenery For your remnant city? Inner greys and greeneries You don't know me Or my taste Taste in movies Not so naïve To expect my touch to mirror

Jaipur 04:48
I'm losing my mind searching for you And even if I found you, what would I do? I would run from you I'm not strong enough Kind enough I don't have the will To believe enough Help me be strong enough Make my heart kind enough It's not that I want for love It's that I need to love Help me be Make my heart Its not that I Its that I

Set Me Free 07:54
My mistakes are clearer As my time here slips away I’m scared of the mirror I am trapped inside me Set me free, set me free Set me free, set me free My life is a tight noose That I tighten every day The lies that I've used to deceive myself Are getting deeper, deeper in my head Is there a place for me where I can hide From my eyes and my mind Every pill I've ever tried Tastes dull after a while There's no rest for me when I sleep, Or I'd lie still for weeks, Now when I wake there's a pause, Then my mind knows it's still waiting for you to Set me free, set me free Set me free, set me free Will there be peace for me when I die Or will a piece of me still cry? Waiting for another end For the heat death to descend Will I feel a chill on the night When the last star's last light Dims to nothing And the darkness unfolds? Is there time after death Or does it freeze with my last breath? Is the time till my death Here as a test? Or is it the only chance I have To beg you to Set me free, set me free Set me free, set me free
