Track Name: do i have to be cool again?
A letter came today that said I must renew my cool.
If I’m to keep my cred, the balance must be paid in full
Must take a refresher course, prove myself to the board
Show them that I still got my stuff and my strut is holding up
Will I still be me if they take away my cool?

Do I have to be cool again?
Do I have to loop myself?
Feels like we’ve been through this before
keeps coming ‘round
keeps coming ‘round

Records I bought yesterday are no longer considered to be cool
(unless someone else plays them)
I even wrecked this beat with my silly lame ass croon
Life is like a marathon, not doing laps, the same old ground
Trends be coming ‘round and ‘round but what I seek has not been found
Take my cred away
I’ll survive without my cool

Do I have to be cool again?
Do I have to loop myself?
Feels like we’ve been through this before
keeps coming ‘round
keeps coming ‘round

Maybe I can’t give you what you want from me?
You may never understand I will always be me.
Free.
Track Name: dimensioneer's
Let go of me and try and really listen
You can’t scream to hold this out
You’ve read about it
It makes the world glisten
Please ignore the skeptics doubt

Keep thinking when it hits me
Keep breathing when it hits me
How will I know if I freak out?

I just stepped into a dream eyes wide
Reset what I once believed
New life

You’re out of it
The dream is slipping from view
You can’t run the voodoo down
You’ve talked about it, but no one really listens
Who can work these patterns out?

Keep dreaming when it hits me
Keep breathing when it hits me
This time I know I won’t freak out

I just stepped into a dream eyes wide
Reset what I once believed
New life


If I could make it back to where I traced it could I change the way it’s meant to be?
Or am I trapped in a linear enactment that I’m never able to repeat?

We roll like dimensioneer’s tonight
Track Name: slumber
I must admit it, I didn’t think you could fall as fast as this
Pick your battles
Don’t you know that gravity always wins?
The lost and found contains the broken pieces of your rules
Red paint stains last night’s rage that’s haunting you

Feel the loneliness
The bed you have made
Your sleep is never slumber
Your nightmare’s played out from the script you have written on the wall between us

You kept on cutting division lines demanding we pick sides
You couldn’t have me because you know my loyalty's not blind
The hammer used to break him down was called monogamy
A strangle hold to keep him close, but nothing you could preach

Feel the loneliness
The bed you have made
Your sleep is never slumber
Your nightmare’s played out from the script you have written on the wall between us

There’s battle scars from disco now
Full retreat and head hung down
The less I know, the more I think that you got lost in the good times

Nine waves broken on the shore
The voice will surf the sounds no more
You say you must fix broken wings, but you must walk before you fly
Track Name: dream state
Dream state and altered awake is where I can pass the answers along
Play games
Crumbs in the maze
Give no answers straight
Riddles wrapped in the song
Roam free from Earth rules and time
In here we can fly ’til the daylight arrives

When he wakes it’s seconds ‘til the pictures fade of the games of magic made at night
Sometimes I warm the heart with memories so he will leave the dreaming with a smile

Lately he won’t listen to me
He’s not sleeping deep though he eyes often close
Next state of dreams I will shake like thunder and quakes ’til my message is known

When he wakes it’s seconds ‘til the pictures fade of the games of magic made at night
Sometimes I warm the heart with memories, but tonight he’ll leave the dream from fright

Dream state to be alive
Home in the notes
Silence beyond rapid eyes it what I fear the most

Tonight I’ll bring the monsters out

Don’t wake
Don’t wake until I’ve talked to you
Track Name: neighbours
East of here is nowhere and West is not my home
North is where the buzzards fly South to pick the bones
Up is blocked by brain cells depleted from ill use
Down is where the siren calls for me to be her muse

Don’t waive to the neighbours
Don’t glance or even smile
Don’t waive to the neighbours
They always try to pry
Don’t talk to the neighbours about our escape plans
Don’t waive to the neighbours
They’ll catch me if they can

Just keep the windows blackened from cold and judging eyes
They’re keeping notes and making calls
It’s not safe outside
Just sing me silly phrases to calm my twitching nerves
Tonight at dusk we venture out with pockets full of dirt

Don’t waive to the neighbours
Don’t glance or even smile
Don’t waive to the neighbours
They always try to pry
Don’t talk to the neighbours about our escape plans
Don’t waive to the neighbours

They are listening through the walls

Now they’ve heard this song they know that I’m a freak
I’m hiding from the outside ‘cause the inside sets me free
Let’s huddle by the fire of the floor boards we’ve torn up
Let’s toss a coin to decide if we’ve dug deep enough

Escape from the neighbours and counteract their plans
Escape from the neighbours and gain the upper the hand
Escape from the neighbours
We’ll make sure that we win
Escape from the neighbours
I’m so over this
Track Name: words are grey
He can’t colour the sounds that she’s making ‘cause her words are grey and they carry no weight
He gives her pencils and colours to make sense of a world that’s grey
He’s got so much to say
Letter’s scribed from the underside, but she won’t read them before all the ink fades away
It doesn’t help that she’s colour blind on his synesthesia days

Though he gave her colours she still coloured all their world in light grey
He gave her rainbows but she couldn’t see the spectrum he made
Purple, indigo and blue and green and blackened dark red
Are the colours of the words she wishes no one had said

His lips will turn to blue before she before she utters any words that may have more colour than grey
She builds a castle in the sky to hide from all the colours that may drain her delusion away
Curtains drawn and the sun is blocked to keep forgiving at bay and her karma all paid
No one hears the light that makes the sounds when the night blocks out the day

Sometimes feelings aren’t in black and white

Though he gave her colours she still coloured all their world in light grey
He gave her rainbows but she couldn’t see the spectrum he made
Purple, indigo and blue and green and blackened dark red
Are the colours of the words she wishes no one had said

She shaded all their world in grey
Can’t see the spectrum that he made
Track Name: bending the map
Well I don’t don’t see you ‘cause I don’t need you
I’ve build a world of wonder here inside
Behind my eye lids the world is growing, but on the outside things aren’t so sublime
You think I’m fading, but I’m creating the perfect place for me to run and hide


This song can’t exist at all
It isn’t real, I made it up
But it’s where I’ve been spending all my time
If I tire of my reality I’ll bend the map to make it fit a reality that better suits my style

This is a movie about the cartoon, based on the book that you are yet to read
If you’re distracted by my abstraction then you will never feel what I believe
Maybe I’m lost here, but yet I don’t fear ‘cause my imagination is all I need

This song can’t exist at all
It isn’t real, I made it up
But it’s where I’ve been spending all my time
If I tire of my reality I’ll bend the map to make it fit a reality that better suits my style

They used to tell us that the world was big in size and every path in front of us was our choice to decide
Soon the paths grow over with weeds of wicked doubt
Trap imagination in a maze with no way out
Who is really in control?

Maybe I’m not real at all, I don’t exist, you made me up and your the one who really wrote this song?
A simulated universe where every move you’ve programmed first
Reality you really kill the vibe
Track Name: black holes
It’s been a while since I thought my reality was skewed
A pantonic harmony soundtracked my trouble mood
If I’m not real and I don’t feel this plane isn’t one of a few
I’d be lying as I’ve seen sides that are usually hidden from view

Black holes
I fall into black holes

Once upon a measurement that quantifies rates of change, a hole opened in my life where no light could escape
Well, I don’t know that I’m not sure that I’m seeing illusions of you
My mind’s trying to defy where this black space is pulling me to

Black holes
I fall into black holes

I’ve been spying on myself
Behind the fabric there’s more of me

No warning I keep falling into black holes
Track Name: something isn't right
Something isn’t right
Your eyes are only slightly telling me the signs that your mood is in disguise
The circuit may be closed, or has has your dark mind blown a note across the room that’s diminished words to few

No, no it don’t feel so right
I can’t read all of your signals tonight

Something isn’t right
Your gaze has locked my eyes in a room without a view of what your lips would do
They’re zipped and done up tight
Protects me from the sight of the men reduced to fools who didn’t read you rules

No, no it don’t feel so right
I can’t read all of your signals tonight

Why are you smiling yet baring your claws?
Howling and barking prevents my applause
Is it your signals or is it my head?
I can’t tell you where my scared thoughts have led

It’s your birthday, but for me it’s a bad day
I’m leaving the party without saying goodbye
Tomorrow’s a new day without all the gameplay
There’s blood on your cheek and it is freaking me out

Better on my own
Safer on my own
Alone it’s always right
