Track Name: Soft Spoken
saw me slip your mind like a ghost
realized then I felt the most
of what you were going to be to me

the end always makes the mean
we are just opposite infinite directions with nothing in between

we relate with whats in common
so tell me why I still feel forgotten
I'm always out looking in

when I try to make some meaning
every action I try hits a ceiling
I watch you as you look around

then when I have had enough
someone comes up and cuts out my tongue
out of my mouth
and I say "took me long enough"
Track Name: Umwelt
I don't know what it is
I don't think I'm jealous
the words I get caught up in
make me talk like this

this is real to me now
this feels right to me now
tell me how do I sound
tell me when I turn into a character

maybe I just don't get it
maybe you'll just never get it
maybe I'll just keep sweatn' it
maybe I just don't get it

maybe cause I don't need it
is cause I don't see it
is cause I'll never be it

is there somewhere else
you would rather be?
cause when you are with someone else
you have more energy

everything that I like
is all a state of mind
should I really want
everyone on my side?

maybe I just don't get it
maybe I'll just never get it
maybe I'll just keep sweatn' it
maybe cause I don't get it

maybe cause I can't see it
is cause I'll never be it
is cause I just don't need it
Track Name: Time Sensitive
I never thought
I would see the fall
of something tall
to the ground
now old ruins
where I walk around and call it my town

now I see it
all the time
what is even mine ?
today I saw three planes in the same patch of sky

I never thought
I would live this long
not like I'd die
I guess I never realized the length of time I would be alive
Track Name: Freedom From
who to be?
why does everybody want something from me?
to you
I want to wander around forever
but everything is quietly out of reach

that can't be
I'm as hungry as ever but i don't want to eat
for me
I got it in my head somewhere
that there are better ways to be
ugh.

is it me?
what exactly am I trying to achieve?
from you
someone new to follow
please come up and validate me

that can't be
I'm living in the land of the free
Track Name: Environmentally Friendly
I'm a product of this earth
and comes with a curse
self-centered with self-worth

there is a pressure that underlines
in how we learn how to survive
weather its to grow or die
we all lie

its eat or be eaten
be or be beaten
just be or show a weakness
just be decent with yourself in time
know your friends

stepping on peoples toes
influencing
trying to act so genuine
trying to claim that we are all environmentally friendly

I'm a product of this earth
and it comes with a curse
self-centered with self-worth

I don't need to know anything I don't want
and the taunt
to need to bleed
to get trapped in doing the same thing over and over again

cause I can see
see through your bluff
consuming until you go belly up
will only get you faster to nowhere
strangely enough
Track Name: Sun Ray
I'm trapped!
in a sun ray
nothing is gonna stop me
cause nothing coming my way

I got distracted by greed
I got distracted by greed
I let them get to me

I'm trapped!

I am going to push you out
Track Name: Jin Chan
a room swells up until swollen
every removal is just an emotion
I don't know you but I get the notion
a hostage of your own fortune

then we all sit in a circle
sometimes it kicks in faster than normal
the fear of eternal boredom
an invisible wave but sure is forceful

I didn't get it then but now I understand
its me, the mountain, and my two hands now

at each other like there is law to the land
talk to us before you talk to them
keep your fortune clenched in your hands
drawn to something like were all damned

I didn't get it then but now I understand
its me, the mountain, and my two hands now

as long as you have something for the rest
the rats will crawl back into their nest
where they will craw on top of each other
in silence

I didn't get it then but now I understand
its me, the mountain, and my two hands now
Track Name: Staircase Wit
oh how it all lays
one on one another
blends in and smooths out
becomes together

right now I feel okay
should have bottled it for a rainy day
I know I should have stayed
but I keep forgetting to
I keep forgetting to

and in a warm pause
I empty my mind
more complete is something to be next time
to be next time

I know nothing more than I did before
