Track Name: Side Effects
The first time it takes hold we will fear for our souls and then the next time
Time two, lose your words
In your skull you're not heard and then drown it out
This dance we're enclosed in our arms
We enfold and maintain
Waiting for the side effects

When no cruelty's done why are we cruel?
We know the kindness you've endured, we're living with the side effects

The last time
So we'll count the grains of sand

Getting old explaining jokes drying out
But still it's sad to see you go
Track Name: Skeleton Coast
Reality eludes you
If you only knew the opposite of boredom is not adequate
So you're waiting for a new world of teeth and bone and thoughtless deception
Do you see another past the horizon?
Everyone is feeling worse than expected

So you're crying your desires thru the night
See, you're wanted now
Read your warning lights
But he will lead you down
He won't leave you now

a skeleton He'll show your

See his plans in his short hands
Track Name: You Do Wonders
Have your deeds been worth all the strain
and tedium of their execution?
Murals -- fragments of your glimpses of scenes
Ill-remembered traps illusory

We've seen you do wonders
Did your youth run out or guide you?
Will we let your works sift through the sieve of our pores like sand?

When our paths have all coalesced let us find that mutual line
Save us from ourselves
Track Name: Fuck Years
It's cool to be polite
To express gratitude
Tip at least 20% even if the server's rude to your self-centered ass

It's cool to be polite

It's cool to have integrity
Admit wrong but not seek pardon
Everyone's got problems
You're not the epitome of the burdened
