Track Name: straight A's
Proclaiming to be wise
They become fools
If knowledge were power
Then we'd rule the world

If time were money
We'd still be dirt poor
In a world without morals
As if there ever were

Ohh Oh, Ohh Oh
Tell me something I don't know

All the minds of all our friends are filled with wires with frayed ends
Their parrot tongues and plastic hearts will fail them in the end

And you know
There is no fate in the world that can be surmounted by scorn

Ohh Oh, Ohh Oh
Tell me something I don't know
Tell me something I
Track Name: caligula
Does it matter what I say
No one who matters will listen
With a poker face on
My emotions stay hidden
Words waning in wisdom
Looming low below your limen
With the fear I'll be judged
I love this world that we live in

Caligula
CALIGULA

"Please, mind your words
These are just your opinions"
Oh God bless this world
Oh God bless this prison
Parade as if perfect
"Well, I'm just a person"
With the fear I'll be judged
I love this world that we live in

Caligula
CALIGULA

And I cannot control
The tremors on my tongue
And you cannot condone
The things that I've done
But Fuhrer forgives me
Keeps in mind I'm only human
With the fear of being judged
I love this world that we live in

Caligula
CALIGULA

Language is a labyrinth
So I speak in euphemisms
I lower my head
And spit my verbal venom
"Phantom Friends Forever"
I've not payed attention
I've a fear of being judged
I love this world that we live in

Caligula
Caligula
Track Name: serpent bearer
Am I some sort of sadist?
All macabre and razed flesh
Well, Fuhrer's love. Well, Fuhrer's judgement.
Please, call me servant when I am summoned

I'm still young. Say I've got time.
Well, all is well. Well, all is fine.
Close my eyes because bliss is blind-
ness I miss what I despise
The most, my flesh, my former self
Talking mirror/Talking death
Ghost of Fuhrer save what's left
A pinning, civilized, sadist.

Staring into the eyes of a lobotomized
Version of myself. We're still in good health, but
We're in the same rut an in our lives and in our wrists
There's the same shortcuts.

I say I love you everyday
But every chance I disobey
Distraction Demons kept at bay
But that's why Fuhrer came
In the first place

My "high hygiene"
That's my mental heath
Well, Misanthrope = I hate myself
Talking plaster, Fuhrer's got a plan
I'll always be a bastard, but he'll always be my dad

Staring into the eyes of a lobotomized
Version of myself. We're still in good health, but
We're in the same rut an in our lives and in our wrists
There's the same shortcuts.

Staring into the eyes of a dichotomized
Version of myself. We're still in good health, but
We're in the same rut an in our lives and in our wrists
There's the same shortcuts.
Track Name: id
My fretters Fuhrer
I'm hungry and I'm tired
I'm an addict, I'm a liar
I'm tr-tr-trying too hard

How low, Hallow
How I've felt for so long
Acting like I don't know
Air can't last in my lungs

High highs, Low blows
I could die tomorrow
Wouldn't even matter
God loves me like a swallow too

And it falls apart like Jenga blocks
I found safety inside a box
And it falls apart like Jenga blocks
I found safety four walls

Contra Mundum
I'm still young and lissome
They speak words of wisdom
I hear, but never listen

Ha! Haphazard
I just can't find the right words
I wish I could be better
Oh, I'm trying to be better for you

And it falls apart like Jenga blocks
I found safety inside a box
And it falls apart like Jenga blocks
I found safety inside four walls

To spend and waste time as though you had a million
years.... To be always at the mercy of one self-
centered passion, or another. Now you ... you say to
yourself, "Oh, now I've got myself into an awful mess;
I wish I were sitting quietly at home."
Track Name: dust 2
I believe the quote was "What's a life under kerosene"?
Well, woe is me, what's a life made of velveteen?
Head to toe, you know exactly what I believe:
Do what thou wilt and you'll burn up and out with Luci
For godspeed a life flirting with death and greed
Do you want beg? No. Do want me to leave? No.
Seems there's no need for that with your life under
kerosene.
Do you want me to beg? No. Do expect me to sleep? NO.

(Dust To Dust)

I believe the quote was "What's a life full of
opposites"?
To that I pose my myself an inspirational nihilist
Misanthrope/philanthrope, kill yourself first, I insist
Dust to Dust to Dust to Dust, regardless
Spent four pensive months worrying about some wayward
kids
You must have forgotten a forgotten man is dangerous
An overwhelming apathy, absolutely couldn't care less
So me a man without a cause, yes man, I'm dangerous

(Dust To Dust)

If anything you must've said "What's a life without
questions"?
Isn't that a questionable question; that's a life
without options
Oh pshhhh, you think your a philosopher
That's the end of that because it's the end of Autumn
Your seasonal disorder kicks in for the winter
You can hide can from me, but you can't hide your
problems

Dust To Dust

Regardless if it's just ashes to ashes and dust to dust
I will live and love and die and that should be
enough...
Track Name: a lesser light to rule the night (moon)
Oh all is well, oh all is hell
Spent the past four months under piss-poor help
Now I do not believe in death
The soul is separate from the flesh
And I'm just what you say I am
"Not a soldier. Not a man."
But I can feel my heart pump.
Now I can feel my blood course.

Seen better days on the backs of my eyelids
Shaking my head praying for blindness
You can do anything if you rationalize
When I close my eyes I am merciless
So I promenade with my eyes closed
The Ghost directs me I suppose
So I move in a straight line.
He keeps me in a straight line.

The worlds not what it appears to be
So I walk until I reach the sea
I'm floating in a dark abyss
I have the mind of Caesar
and somehow the heart of Spartacus

And I've survived the winter
So I'll make it through the next year
A fear of Hell keeps me alive
If I'm found dead it was suicide
So Phantom Friends and lucid dreams
The more I think the more it seems that
I have no friends, but I'm self actualized.
