Track Name: Are You Vonnegeddon It
ARE YOU VONNEGEDDON IT

days come together, so i've gotta divide
to finer increments, so i can define
mark the time, gotta keep track
with tools of measure, make it exact
(cuz i'm) strapped down on these tracks
my sight is only a tube
i can't see the range, only a spot
so i gotta get my gnomon
so i measure my fine sand
so i set my mainspring, and pendulum
now my dial is completely in shade
all my sand is trickled away
all the tension from my mainspring
all momentum from my pendulum
Track Name: Liars and Sirens
LIARS AND SIRENS

come join the show, t.v. set and go
we're all you need to know
brain freeze; just let go
fires and wires, liars and sirens
they're throwin' you in
marchin' beside them, no explanation
blind faith believe them, it's so sickenin'
how they got in your skin
come join the show, t.v. set and go
we're all you need to know
brain freeze; just let go,
and now you're dribblin'
your spoon fed opinion, i can't listen
to the zombie state that you're in
marching in cadence, regurgitatin'
mob mentality spun, to do their bidding
and there's a dark horse
and he's ridin' in, says he's gonna give
this country some medicine
and they'll reject him,
scream loud for everyone
been in the dark so long
how'd it all go so wrong?
stand in the light, let it hurt your eyes
stand in the light, stand in the light
Track Name: Tractorbeam
TRACTORBEAM

stop that man in the dark
sus him out of the white
give his papers a check
put a flag on his back
get that man off the curb
put him in the back of a truck
squeeze him for all he's worth
used up and owed nothing
how do you enforce a law
unless everyone is suspect
of fighting the natural law
of survival nomadics?
just cross this desert and you are free
eight to a room and you are free
wait on this curb and you are free
but you ain't earned that liberty
how you gonna hold your ground
against some demographics?
how you gonna legislate
natural cause and effects?
Track Name: Debate
DEBATE

we saw, accused and the law
the guilt was on the, front page
perception and cause, speculation
reasons, reasons are all
cast out the whole, debate
our torches are lit, for recidivist
justice's ears are o'ercome with sensate
so she dropped the scales that weigh
so she could lift the blindfold away
now the sword is all that remains
it's a mugshot/flashbulb debate
it's a handcuff/courtroom debate
it's a numbered jumpsuit debate
it's a three man/two bed debate
it's a take on your whole culture debate
not fling offense, but relate
do we have the same goal debate
can we get together debate
trace back the stem and separate
define it from its origins debate
realize it's all our fates
we're acting manifestly destinate
Track Name: Would You Be My Sweet Kevorkian?
WOULD YOU BE MY SWEET KEVORKIAN?

this slow death ride, taking up my whole life
i don't have the right, to relinquish this fight
legislated misery, robbed of mercy
forced in a prison, of laws and condition
any other end would, gimme some dignity
'stead of a world of, pity, pity pity me
would you please be, my sweet saint of dignity
come down from the skies, softly close my eyes
and then draw your sweet arrow
be my merciful hero
and then draw your sweet arrow
be my merciful hero
would you be my sweet kevorkian?
snuff this light they insist to keep me in
finally make this pain all go away
give me a death with some dignitayyy
Track Name: Take It Upon Me
TAKE IT UPON ME

take it upon me, you don't break,
you don't blame, put out, put out, put it out
Track Name: Searching Escape
SEARCHING ESCAPE

take the time to see all the ways
hoping the back mind will fall into place
seems like there's nothing,
but searching these days,
invest some interest. see how it pays
there's no return, there's no return
you can't unlearn, there's no return
gotta get out and subside this rage
but i've nothing to show for. nothing but age
attempts and failures to take to my grave
a realization that fills me with rage
there's no return, there's no return
you can't unlearn, there's no return
pack the car, in the dark
how do i get my mind off this highway
how do i find myself on my escape
Track Name: WTF R U LOLZING @ ? (The Kids Aren't Alright)
WTF R U LOLZING @ ?
(THE KIDS AREN'T ALRIGHT)

these kidzes without the skillzes, to convey
me what they gettin' at, they reach down,
and they dig down, but they only seem to
come up with that knee jerk reaction that
all their peers are coughin' up, ain't
no communication, responses are on autopop,
do they still have reasons, to present
an idea off the cuff, or have they just stopped
thinking ideas that were unthought of,
would they have the language
to present it to the rest of them, or would it
fade out inside, too difficult to comprehend
it's not all good, i need some reaction
it's time for discussion, and you're just
punctuating, it's double plus ungood
you're losing your reactionand you forgot,
an acronym for dissension
so much interaction, there's too many
kiddies in the pool, so every god damn
comment is witnessed by a million who
whiff-a of some tension and now
my shit is blowin' up when the origins of
offenses was a peace sign that i don't
throw up cuz i gotta 'splain everythang
all the way and through and through
to a future of dumbed down kids
who just would not know what to do
without a set of symbols what would
they be clinging to they only work on presets
and the abstract does not get through
it's not all good, i need some reaction
it's time for discussion, and you're just
punctuating, it's double plus ungood
you're losing your reaction, and you forgot,
an acronym for dissension
