Semiprecious 02:59
I found a diamond in the rough And I polished it until the dawn But as I worked it shrank and shrank Until the gem I found was gone I turned it over and over again I turned it over and over Until there was nothing left I came across a vein of gold And it glittered in my sight But as I dug it disappeared And I could only find pyrite I dug deeper and deeper and deeper until it was spent It was going and going and going and then it went So I ask myself What I'm making may not be silver and gold Am I taking the time to polish precious stones? I read a letter from my past That was sent from a different life Before I knew what I had planned Would never come to light And I cried and I cried and I cried and I cried until I was dry Now I'm asking and asking and asking and asking why I never told myself that What I'm making may not be silver and gold Am I taking the time to polish precious stones? What I'm making may not be silver and gold Am I taking the time to polish precious stones? I turned it over and over and over and over again I turned it over and over and over and over until there's nothing left. I turned it over and over and over and over and over and Over and over and over and over and over and over again

You're always dragging me around But on the days you can't be found I run in place You never answer when I call When there's a problem I can't solve Now I'm lost for days When you arrive you've got a plan I let you drive, I understand It takes a leap of faith Though I can't see the road ahead You won't lead me down a dead end With every step I take I can't wait here for you to show Or I'll stay silent 'til I'm old No more words to say So now I force myself to act To take a step without a map Admit I make mistakes Now that I show up everyday We tend to meet along the way Like we're oldest friends So now I drag myself around And on the days you can't be found I know we'll meet again

Can you hear the symphony outside? The rustling leaves play on your mind Voices whisper words that no one has spoken before The music of the birds and bees The swaying trees dance to a beat That no one programmed It's all out here for free So I'll steal it It's the art of pareidolia It's the art of pareidolia It's the art of pareidolia Can you see the writing on the wall? Is it the way the shadows fall? I read a message so it must be for me Do you fear the faces in the dark? Expressive eyes--A work of art drawn by no one's hand Inspires and maddens the world It's the art of pareidolia It's the art of pareidolia It's the art of pareidolia

Pleasant Row 02:56
My girl lives a continent away I'll stay the distance for the words she'll say to me A foreign lady from a foreign land Her tongue can do things that I don't understand When we fight she doesn't raise her voice But there are some topics she'll always avoid She always tells me what I want to hear Those sweet exotic nothings whispered in my ear [Her] Sechs Acht Elf Ein Funfzig Drei Zehn Ein Zwanzig Null [Him] sigh... so romantic! Our communication might be breaking down But everytime we fight it is a pleasant row Because I don't know what she's saying But I sure like the sound And she knows how to make it How to make it count We first met on a HAM radio site She sent me her call sign in the dead of night We talk for hours, well, it's mostly her Oh babe you know I love you but I need a word [Her] Sieben Zwei Zwolf Vierzig Acht Sechs Null Drei Achtzig Ein Neun [Him] I know, you're always saying that... oh great, interrupt me! Our communication might be breaking down But everytime we fight it is a pleasant row Because I don't know what she's saying But I sure like the sound And she knows how to make it How to make it count Baby what's your number? Baby what's your sign Maybe it's no wonder you talk past me all the time Babe I know you love me You don't have to count the ways Baby aren't you tired? You've been broadcasting for days Our communication might be breaking down But everytime we fight it is a pleasant row Because I don't know what she's saying But I sure like the sound And she knows how to make it How to make it count [Her] Sechs acht elf... ein? Funf... zig? Ahh, finally, he's gone! That was easier than carrying on a conversation, though.

They're waiting for the sun to fall When shadows stretch across the land When darkness grips at the hearts of man They'll descend and consume us all It's our fate as the world revolves Make no mistake it always was the plan They're waiting for the sun to fall When shadows stretch across the land This is a problem we can solve So find a light or grab a lamp And point it out into the black Let's force these monsters to evolve They're waiting for the sun to fall When shadows stretch across the land

For just a small investment You'll start a new profession Move our product and you'll soon make your ends If you can't cover what we lent you There's nothing to prevent you from Going and recruiting your friends All we want is geometric growth forever and If we're honest something bigger, something better because We're on a rocket straight to the moon In for a penny? I'm in for a pound! Now the only way out is down We've seen your sales report Your numbers looking poor Are you still in the game? Because if you're out of funds Allow me to be blunt It's time you were replaced We need some fresher blood Someone that we can trust Who's hungry for success So if you're getting out I'll close out your account (Once you've paid your debts)

There is a pattern repeating in time He is the thundercloud over you mind When it is light he leaves you in the dark Where it's raining by design When you go walking you're always alone You've never known all the comforts of home Storms brew in his mind and the lightning can strike Anywhere and any time It hits you and hits you and hits you again But what can you do and what can you change If you can't see the devil in the rain Everyone here can see it as plain as the day The story is written all over your face The story you tell when you step outside A truth he will deny He twists it and twists it and twists it again But finally you've realized he's playing a game You've seen the devil in the rain Now you're free to strike out on your own Don't mourn what died out long ago Now you're free to find out who you are Now you're free to strike out on your own Don't mourn what died out long ago Now you're free to find out who you are
