Track Name: Party Fear
Recede
Receding reticent
Reminiscent of other people's lives
Of what they are
And what I can't be
So full without me

Keep it in
We Complicate
And can't connect
A forceful touch
With tender thought

And it's alright
it's not right

Everything's a mess but that's fine.
Track Name: Modern Medicine
Do you get the jitters
when you close your eyes?
Welcome home
home to rise again
What was your name again?
Amnesia
Get out of jail free
Amnesty

I wanna take back this town with you
I wanna turn this around with you
I wanna take back this town
Turn our lives around

She said hello, he ate her up
but it's not enough
Lost highway blues
Lost little baby I love you
Love your little pills
Nausea
Love your little pills
I lost ya

Speak another language
Find another symptom
The first step is the hardest
4 out of 5 agree
The first step is the hardest

I'm done with medicine.
Track Name: Recess
We don't realize our insides
Inside our heads inside our bodies
Our guts our blood our brains
what if we were inside out
Skin so thin my skeleton
All of your actions are art, to you
All of your motions are art
Track Name: Right To Relation
Freedom and solitude
Right to relation
Self actualization
Instrumental
Individual
I'm anchor-less, adrift at sea
Objectivity, Longevity

Save your relation
Feel free actualization

You're impressive
and expressive
Save your relation
You have the right to
stare at the sea, yeah yeah yea

Emergency lift-off
alerting me, stare at the screen
Red dots flashing, stuck stuck stuck
between the beams
Concrete gravel crushing me
Make me laugh as I'm stuck
beneath all the weight

If you're such a success, why haven't I seen your bones?
Track Name: Motion
Trans
Mud
Trace
Parallel
Repeat
Resemble
Emulate
Disjointed
For cancer
Benign
But growing
Harmless cancer
Cancer
Track Name: Exist/Exit
Get this puzzle out of our minds again
This chaos takes our brains for a ride
And you're reaching through the haze
Try to escape
There's a place that exists for this

Conclude with dissent again
I'm alive and I'm alert
Break off the fractures
There's a place that exists for this
We exist for this

Now I'm in the present
And I have a name
We're one in the same
Now I'm in the past
It runs in the veins
Save best for last
