Track Name: Lies & Movement
I woke up from a dream
That I knew was just a fantasy
But I’m happy for that special moment
Outside of my reality
I’m losing my attention span
With late fees and arguments
This life has no more stimulus
I only meet requirements
I cannot believe I occupy these
Hours spent in total disinterest
I shuffle blankly over a drink
And all my drinks begin to shuffle over me

All my ambitions have turned into lies
And there’s no more movement left in my eyes
My figure has let go, my mind does not trust me
And all time is wasted from now until nothing

I may look dull
I may look tired
But everyday I’m screaming
Inside this head- I am leaving
I’m becoming “maybe’s”
The skewing of the daily
I think I’m becoming bore
I don’t know if it’s worth waking up anymore
Track Name: Creeping
I’ve been patient in my recognition of this disease
Devouring what I please
I never thought I’d see my sins catching up to me
The lines in my face are no longer clean
I’ve caught the stink of my youthful light dimming

How can I support a family with my own knees buckling under me

My body’s aching, creaking, cracking
My age is creeping quicker than the scheming of death
Why has beauty left
Why has my indulgence surfaced
I look like the pig I’ve always been
The swine of selfish indulgence
The gift of genes has been unwrapped and pawned
I am re-sold
Track Name: No Coffee Day
Leave me alone
I am trying to destroy the earth
It’s obstructing my view
My view of myself

I’m assaulted
By inconvenience
Immediate vistas directing my money
I’m driving alone

I’m informed
Full of awareness
All awake but left with no choices
Obstructing my view

I demand
Short-term incentives
Delicious fuses and poisoned water
With the things that I buy

Forced into financial encouragement
Of short-term incentives
For the love of a family
Maintaining my way

Leave me alone
I am trying to flatten the earth
It’s obstructing my view
My view of myself

I’m assaulted
By inconvenience
Immediate vistas directing my money
I’m driving alone

I demand
Short-term incentives
Delicious fuses and poisoned water
With the things that I buy

Forced
Leave me alone
Track Name: Now I Drive
There is a fly in my coffee
And there is a dead one on the windowsill
I haven’t even woken up yet
And I already know I shouldn’t have gotten out of bed
I’ve got to get a hobby
Or at least stop playing dead
Because I’ll keep counting finger-tips
For all of the lives I’ve been force-fed
My golden reality is feeling sorry for myself

And now I drive
Into the rust
Unwilling cyclic hell
In the things that I trust

Bring to me
Something pleasing
I need to be more than a checkmark

I shouldn’t have gotten out of bed
Just like my generation
We’ve all given up
Track Name: Obligations
Another day, Another dollar
There is no way
Another day, Another dollar
There is no way for me to meet these obligations

Pressure is stressing
Time is spending
All of my earnings are worthless beings

Another day, Another dollar
There is no way
Track Name: Qualified Applicant
Dear head of hiring I heard about your opening
I want nothing more than to work for you
Can’t wait for the interview I know you’ll be impressed
I want to live my life at a desk in your company
I want to spend the rest of my life in your company
I’ve worked up ’til now to earn a place in your company
I lay awake at night ‘cause I’m dreaming of your company
I’m your qualified applicant
Track Name: Paramount
Winners have arrived with nowhere left to climb
Beneath the sun who’s only roll is to make trophies shine
Bathing in envy they can finally rest
Retire in comfort
Write a history text

How can I compete with increasing desperate measures
Keeping pace keeps me safe
Keeping pace keeps me tired

How can I compete with all they’re willing to do
How far they’re ready to run
How much they’ll leave behind
Remind me
What’s the reward of winning
Track Name: Conditioning
I can’t be a human
Only machine
I am an appliance in personal conditioning
Where are my rewards?
Am I of fallible kind?
I’ve been walking and walking
Never run into any prize

Compulsively I don’t speak
Just frown

Pulsing, throbbing, ringing, stinging headache
Droning to static
I speak the trick of the trade and hesitance is excellence
And it’s not my first time to the parade

You fit in
Welcome
You’ve won
Track Name: Salary Man
I can’t miss a day or even a few hours
I squander away with uselessness empowered
Caught
I’ve watched every wall in my salary prison

Forty hours in a wicked week
Eight hours of daily downer
Lifetime wastes in LCD
My paychecks don’t have sympathy
But I need the insurance
I need the security
I’ve got to look at that screen all day
Doesn’t matter how much it’s hurting

WAKE UP AND EAT SHIT
MAKE THE COMMUTE
SIT BACK WAIT
ROUTINE

My human desire
Snubbed
To create my safety net
Currency and a career are required
Wave a fair hand goodbye
This is the rest of my life
Track Name: Sleepless
In bed my head never goes out
I’m sleepless
