In the rearview mirror I watch my world fall away call on Mother Superior hey-ee-yay-ee-yeah! so feign a reaction and try not to blink there's no such thing as retraction and no more privacy here's a simple truth worth a pound of flesh there's so much to know but no time left so feign a reaction and try not to think the harder it blows the deeper the hole in your sleep better the devil you know better the less it costs don't think I'll truly know what it is we lost every little drop of spittle every hope so brittle every sunny day or perfect night every odd time I thought I might be right in the rearview mirror watch the world fall away I'm having an allergic reaction hey! hey! hey!

Look at that face so lovely even when you cry determined despite defeat it's clear in those razor-sharp eyes if you've got the courage to read and learn you may not fade and burn all of the stars arrange logical conclusions drawn from absurd hypotheses we run on foolish notions like these but we're all used to that now from the bomber to the bombed the lovelorn to anyone

It was an honest mistake the first time an exceptional fake now I think I'm inclined can't wait to dig in one time less is much more the first time enough to cajole my mind a sensual whore and what does it mean to feel as light as a cloud? and what does it mean to be the last one to know? no mind; set yourself free how long I've waited to be rescued by a savior or three it was an honest mistake the first time an exceptional fake now I think I'm inclined and what does it mean to feel as light as a cloud? and what does it mean to be the last one to know?

I found an old photo of you somewhat faded, frayed, and used reminded me of all we used to do in this implausible world I could find out where you're at now re-ignite a love long burnt out with words casting a verbal spell in this implausible world who do you love now? who is it you think that you love now?

There is a story here will grow loud in time all things must pass or be unwound with X-Ray eyes see right through their lies with X-Ray eyes you'll see straight through their lies as sure as promises break as sure as smiles are fake a toothsome grin we'll all be told then X-Ray eyes burning holes straight through their lies your X-Ray eyes nod your head and just smile there is a story here will grow loud in time all things must pass or be unwound with X-Ray eyes see straight through their lies with X-Ray eyes you'll see straight through their lies X-Ray eyes see right through their lies X-Ray eyes ...

look at how she glows at all the things she knows could change lives if she exposed and here I yearn to know her inner constellations I've got a memory like a steel trap there's no escape from that like a dreamer stuck in their own madness I am stuck in my own sadness at how much I miss you yeah, I miss you you've got a tongue like an evil curse saccharine kisses simply coat your words burrowing beneath the conscious mind it's so far but not far behind since nothing is how it seems there's no love lost and no broken dreams everything you've ever said keeps running on inside my head and how much I miss you yes, I miss you

this world is sweet with earthly delights hard hunger pangs burn through the night that which you crave a constant haunting the deep sucking sound circling the drain what would you give in exchange for your soul? what would you give to fill that dead void? what would you give in exchange for your soul? what else do you have that's worth more than gold?

Sixty buck should get you what you need to get right ease the twisting, churning, turning all through the night every little whisper spoiling in your mind tiny sharp hooks in the thousands all afire you (are so -ah! look so - ah! must be!) see things as they really are you (feel so -ah! taste so - ah! must be!) forever the stars burn in those eyes smoke and explode it's not the highs or the lows it's the truth that's painful; another day, another mouthful gripped by the vice of the thing that keeps you light by the mercy of the sky let it be all right you (are so -ah! look so - ah! must be!) see things as they really are you (feel so -ah! taste so - ah! must be!) forever the stars burn in those eyes

I watch you when you sleep I can see you through the darkest night and throughout the daylight you cannot hide from these prying eyes you cannot hide so don't try I'm a gallon drunk but I know I'm right and I'm right behind you but always out of sight you cannot hide from these prying eyes you cannot hide so don't try
10.
you know you've been here before deja vu or a sinking feeling either way it amounts to the same no love lost and no useful gain it's not up to the stars to hold our destiny it's all on you this society profits on self-doubt that makes liking yourself a rebellious act either way it amounts to the same no love lost and no useful gain it's not up to the stars to hold your destiny it's all on you

Savages 02:32
to tell the truth I don't see both sides I see the brutes and their wicked smiles but that's just who we are and that's just what we are take cover now, head to the ground, don't look around or be swallowed take cover now, head to the ground, don't look around or be divided take cover now, head to the ground, don't look around lest you be take cover now, head to the ground, don't look around lest you be blood-red blinded too hear them bellow and bawl through the dark, still night with crocodile grins the veneer is thin take cover now, head to the ground, don't look around or be swallowed take cover now, head to the ground, don't look around or be divided take cover now, head to the ground, don't look around lest you be take cover now, head to the ground, don't look around lest you be blood-red blinded too

Of all the things he said to me of all the things that I could be so many possibilities find your passion and we'll see lying there no showing fear trying hard to persevere all the while an honest smile I hope, I hope I'm so brave meanwhile, the earth did spin moments passed through thick and thin the universe takes what it wants there's no telling why or when a stream of water strums the reflection pool the cold winter wind braces you now I know who's being fooled but in my mind is his gentle smile of all the things he said to me all the things I could be so many possibilities find your passion and you'll see

Head Fake 03:20
would you mind telling me is this real or a bad dream? since the here and now equals everything it begs the question it begs the question are things as they seem or stretched too fine well? if it's gotta bleed, bleed over me boy it's hard to know what's right strangled by strings in thousands of ways may time always be kind what's out of sight is always top-of-mind hold fast and steady now and dream of golden days are things as they seem or stretched too fine well? if it's gotta bleed, bleed over me boy it's hard to know what's right strangled by strings in thousands of ways whatever forever comfort me if the here and now means everything the question must be asked so ask are things as they seem or stretched too fine well? if it's gotta bleed, bleed over me boy it's hard to know what's right strangled by strings in thousands of ways

Into A Stone 01:07
Silence that sound make the whole world stop spinning 'round it's too easy to become attached to all of this it's far too easy, I know and all that's left now are trinkets of what was another useless monument to ignore
