Track Name: Passe
And I saw the line
yeah I saw the line
cannot dissolve the line

hell even I dissolve
but it's all cliched stuff
so I waste away
yes I can waste away

but it feels so good
to be this way
you think you're crazy
you're a washed-up, has-been like me

telling lies cause it's a sign that you're civilized

you know it's good you got ya your golden standards

and you're all defined with split hairs

when it just so happens you know big words

ha ha hah aha

you know your words are so

your result

And I am not a savior
I can't help you today
turn your eyes away
because its so cliched
and lame

you know the washed-up,
has-been, know-it-all
that I can't live without

hah ha hah

it's so wrong to just
come with us
come with us

be civilized like me
and live with answers
for our doubts
Track Name: Delivery boy
There ones lived a boy
With a name I don't know
Nothing interesting ever happened to him
Nobody knew he existed
He delivered pizza for living
His lifestyle could be improved
He loved to leave the radio on
And once he knocked on the door
An old lady looked through the window
He didn't know what to say
His eyes became green
Like tennis balls
He said…
I’m a pizza delivery boy

I lost my head on the Wednesday
I lost my ways and now I'm bold
Nobody would let him in
your house smells
like salt and pepper

He turned the radio on loud
Enjoy the new sensations
Of someones attention
He was the only one
Reliable to exit
He always dream to visit
And question old ladies funeral
But He survived
He never wanted to survive
I don’t want to survive
I don’t want to survive
Track Name: Braindead
Some say go
it's not a common way
a cynical unknown
it's time to get away

see me comin', there's none stay
that's when you get away
oh it's nothing to seem low
when you're going way too slow
you just don't seem to realize

a sentence says to come on down
said to get us laid
yes I've learned that you're gonna
miss the wrong way and, in a sense,
talking some kind of mystery this time

missing calls another waits
but they started going way down
listening to sins that know me by
a timid sound that rises up to her
to sing songs, sing soul
Track Name: Her eyeless face
How can our time fly
let me rest
let me go
when she makes this eyeless face
how will I know?

Can't stay alone when it's never enough
just can't say no because it's never enough but I
can't say I am whole because it's never enough but I
just can't say no because it's never enough

these captive hands of yours I know
I can keep them hissing long and slow
but will they know no shame or anger?

Can't stay alone because it's never enough
just can't say no because it's never enough but I
can't stay alone like it's never enough but I
just can't say no because it's never

those bones are so brittle
they just
turn to dust
just whistling dust

and she takes special actions
against those who wait
those poor ol' dudes
who live way past their date
Track Name: Challenger
Fix today
I've got nothing to say
Got it out of the way
and I

got nothing to do
got nothing to prove
got nothing to do at all
but to sing your name

just you wait

My thoughts arrested on a solid line
something I wasn't born to see
but all i do is guess and try
and i never ever had to comply

and I'm set
yes I'm set!

[but i must insist
that we take it along
along down here]

the challenger
the challenger
the challenger waits
and he sits
with long drawn eyes
fixed upon me like
a devilish prize
