Good Trouble 02:00
I know you're on to me How subtle can you be? I used to think that you were so smooth I've got a couple friends Who don't know means from ends And they don't got know when they're being rude And who'se to say who threw the first punch? I wouldn't point a finger that you want to keep Any day you wanna square up You can find me in the street Cause a little good trouble

I see a light ahead Does this mean that I'm dead? O! I thought I'd end up somewhere more profound Than this grey corridor I'd hoped for something more, but no At least we don't all end up in the ground I touch the walls I feel it all gaining speed as I begin to fall And though the light will grow in time I'll never reach it if I try Now I know where we go when we're done with our time on earth When we reach our obsolescence Now I know where we go when we're done with our time on earth I hate to be the one to tell you but Heaven's a long plastic hallway Heaven's a long plastic hallway

Spiked Punch 02:56
Aww yeah! You brought a spoon to a knife fight You wanna meet in the next life? You wanna piece of this? A'ight Come take a taste of my punch spike Take a sip a my sweetness Sugar was never my weakness Is it sour grapes or just genius? I know your gonna wanna freak this I wanna go where you can follow I'll give you something you can swallow I don't wanna leave a bad taste in your mouth I've sweetened it so you can't taste The poison going down Trust me like a rattlesnake The chemicals compound So come get it now Now you know that I am a man of action And I know that you're feeling this attraction Yeah I'm cooking up a punch you can't imagine But I can guarantee your satisfaction I'll never leave a house divided So if some a you are undecided I'll use a steady hand when I spike it I know even ya mama gonna like it I wanna go where you can follow I'll give you something you can swallow I just wanna leave a bad taste in your mouth I've sweetened it so you can't taste The poison going down Trust me like a rattlesnake The chemicals compound So come get it now

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
