Track Name: Happy This Year
Well have you seen all the faces and been all the places
Have you faced the directions you could be facing
Have you walked all around at 12 A.M.
Just to find that it's tomorrow again

Are you happy with what you did this year?
Did you turn yourself into something you feared?
Did you turn around just to find it's all gone?
Do you wish you were no longer here?

3,000 faces outside on the lawn
And now I'm too scared to go outside
Tomorrow it'll be 3,001
I'm lying in bed awake and wide-eyed

Are you happy with what you did this year?
Did you turn yourself into something you feared?
Did you turn around just to find it's all gone?
Do you wish you were no longer here?
Track Name: Surprise Attack
Can't you see love, can't you see love
When it's all around the world?
Can't you see blood, can't you see blood
It makes our hearts beat, gives us love.

Or think about it this-a-way,
your life is just a throwaway.
Oh yeah!

Hopelessly lost, needlessly tossed
Along the side of the highway
Just like a dog, like a dead dog
Leaves its imprint on passers-by

Alone upon the interstate
It's so easy to drift away
Oh yeah!

Well are we lost, well are we lost
Well why don't you just tell me?
Let's look around, let's look around
Any familiar sights to see?

Life like a bayonet
Use it as a surprise attack
Oh yeah!
Track Name: My Days
(Where the gods are good
Follow endless road
Follow master's word
God, my God, is good)

I walk in to Avalon
Leave my words behind my back
That counts as an attack
Assault against myself, I'm too unconscious to come back

I forget why I came here
What I'm doing every day
It's never coming back!
Days of toil and pain, and I've forgotten why I came!

(Where the gods are good
Follow endless road
Follow master's word
God, my God, is good)

Abandon all analysis
Everything stays as it is
This is our happy end,
Our days will be the same, our lives a dream reborn each day
Track Name: Later On
We look up towards the endless void that's staring back at us
Lose your sense of touch, your sense of self, what's now defining us?
Do you see what I meant by it now?
Open up your eyes, and you will not be surprised.

Arm ourselves with bravery it's gonna be our only shot.
Give ourselves away, we have to make us of all we have got.
I dissociate and lose my way.
I am not so brave, but I know that I have faith.

And later on
You wait 'til dawn
(I don't know what gifts to give away)

We carry on
Gruesome and wrong
(I don't know of any better way)
Track Name: A Palace
I guess it's just one of the perks from living here
Losing all that is left of reality
Late at night you sit alone, back 'gainst the wall
Late at night you look towards home, to see nothing

I live in a palace on top of a hill
Walls to keep out streams of endless passerby
Late at night I go out at inspect the walls
Late at night I go out see nothing at all

I don't know why
I don't know why

Just come on by, just wait outside
Look way up high, until it's night

How far I've gone, just to ensure no one
Gets into my estate, into my estate
Where have I gone, I really blew this one
A hundred miles away, a hundred miles away

There's no company, there's no company
There's no company, there's no company
Could you talk to me, could you talk to me
Could you talk to me, could you talk to me

Look in my eye, look in my eye

Just come on by, just wait outside
Look way up high, until it's night
Track Name: My Observation
Left home so young
Off to join the noise
Blend into the crowd, be a shade upon shades

And I went through it all
Just for being cool
I'm not so sure, so I wind up in school

Leaving in the night, leaving everything
Never felt so right
Because I want everything, to remain as it seemed
Before I left that day

And I twinge with hesitance
As I'm walking through that door
Leaving the chatter and talk behind backs

Knives into our friends
I love all my friends
I don't know what I could do to pretend

Leaving in the night, leaving everything
Never felt so right
Because I want everything, to remain as it seemed
Before I left that day
Track Name: Cleanliness
Took a walk down hidden roads
Saw the things I deny I know
And I left home
Just to see it gone

No more words that I can fit in here
I don't hate anyone
But you
You know all about it
You don't have to doubt it
Cause of words I sing so clean

And I find myself at home
And the walls are monotone
So I left home
Just to see it gone

No more words that I can fit in here
I don't hate anyone
But you
You know all about it
You don't have to doubt it
Cause of words I sing so clean
Cause of words I sing so clean
Track Name: Buzzard
I live the right way, make the right choice
Every day now
Still don't know
Where I am
Like a beach bum
Frying daily
On the sand

I wear the right clothes, say the right thing
Every time now
Still don't know
Who I am
Like a tiger
Caged and shipped off
To Japan

Suddenly a thought hits me hard like a rock
How many more chances do you think we've got?

Follow the right path, my whole life is
Right on track now
Still don't know
What I am
Like a mime that's
Lost in China
Without hands

Take the prescribed amount every time
It never works out
Still don't know
How I feel
An octogenarian
At an aquarium
But without mind

What was it I thought came to me awhile back
I ask questions that nobody wants to ask
Track Name: So Patiently
I sit and wait so patiently
For something to come wait for me
An endless ring

Fires come and wash away
Ice come, to wash away the day I wait
So patiently

I get lost among the falling stars, the falling stars
I forget what lies within my heart, within my heart
What to do now, what to say don't know, I just don't know
I would like to forget everything, and then just leave

Patience is a virtue so true
I avert spending time with you
Seems every day

I so patiently wait
Track Name: The Cycle
Before the sky burns up, it's nice again
(Before the sky burns up, it's nice again)
We paint the walls with blood of yesterday

The cycle goes around it
Naturally the current seeks to drown it

Before the sun moves out of sight again
(Before the sun moves out of sight again)
Before the sky burns up, it's nice again

The cycle goes around it
Naturally the current seeks to drown it
Track Name: Don't Forget
Follow the path at midnight
And never look back
Follow it 'til you reach the end

I'll wait for hours until
I go there myself
Find myself numb from disbelief

And now with weeks to go
We rush blindly ahead
Forget 'bout weeks before
Never see them again

I'll wait for hours until
I go there myself
Find myself numb from disbelief

And now with weeks to go
We rush blindly ahead
Forget 'bout weeks before
Never need them again
Track Name: Blades of Grass
I used to live on this street before
How many times have I thought of it?

Force me to try and remember it
I cannot do so all by myself

These streets no longer offer to me
Same things I can't get no longer

Born as second class, now second-last
My people sprung from blades of grass
And their lives are soon over
Track Name: Question Mark
If you want a good life then follow these rules
Have no friends and talk to no one
Trust me
I'll forget my dues
Lose my company, lose my meaning
What's me

And I have nothing on my mind
I feel so great I feel so fine
Question mark
Question mark
And I know I will not win
Before it even begins
Question mark
Question mark

If you want a good life then come with me
No address and no ambition
Live free
It's a fancy dream
Go to sleep now you'll forget by morning

And I have nothing on my mind
I feel so great I feel so fine
Question mark
Question mark
And I know I will not win
Before it even begins
Question mark
Question mark
Track Name: Dr. Schaeffer's Vision
(Instrumental)
Track Name: My Time
A heavy metal parking space
I lose my sense of everything
And I walk into world and I know I'm down

It's like I told ya
Strictly paranoia
And I never quite knew how
You look outside when everybody's hiding
You'll never figure it out

It takes one moment when you walk by
Crying cause you lost this time
Think about the warning signs
And run away, away

My time, my time, and rhyme

I fall in love with everything
I'll forget who I am this Spring
And I walk into world and I know I'm down
