Track Name: Everything Based
It's not about what you have
but what you're going to get.
Motion seeps through the hour glass,
our heads fall silent.
Keep Silent I tell you.

It doesn't take much for the world to fall apart.
Track Name: The Last Of The Starmakers
Hold onto what you have,
cause' you're going to need it.
It's not impossible,
to leave you here behind.
Remember every time?
That you said you didn't?
And now you wonder why,
and I don't even bother.

Glasses were raised,
(And I won't bother you.)
Beautifully composed,
but nothing more.
(I won't even...)
Toasts were made,
so falsely claimed.
(I won't even...)
Tell you the truth
(Tell you the truth!)

You packed your things.
Your first steps are waiting,
regret's not an option.
You keep your grin.
And I have my anger,
to keep things in motion.
At night you sing,
but no one can hear you.
Keep silent they tell you.

Breathe in and keep yourself warm,
because no one will do it for you.
If you don't.

Keep wasting time,
wash out your eyes.
Keep wasting time,
wash out your eyes...

The world won't fall for you.

(Breathe in... Breathe in... Breathe in.)

Breathe in and keep yourself warm.
Cause' no one will do it for you,
if you don't.

Breathe it in, breathe it in,
cause' I won't.
Track Name: Power Animal
Keep it moving love,
don't let it set in.
Cold will break your bones,
you won't walk away.

Right, go ahead and waste your life.
Bury yourself tonight.

No one leaving,
just keep breathing smoke.
Lungs failing,
enough to make you choke.
And I'm learning to keep it all closed.
Hell is waiting and have to see you go.

We jump from cliff sides,
fly towards the sun.
I hope we make it soon.

Drowned out. (Drowned out)
Were we always the same?
Was it the shock of being alone?
Was it the fear of going insane?

Now machines tear into me,
and you're already gone.

We're never ready when it comes.
Stand back and realize,
what life is really like.

Keep it moving love,
don't let it set in.
Cold will break your bones,
you won't walk away.

We jump from cliff sides,
fly towards the sun.
I hope we make it soon.
Track Name: I Might
We find love,
to be alone.
Because the hunt,
takes way too long.
The clique of teeth and bones,
tongue tied to be alone.
Finding ourselves,
too much to swallow.

Anchored in the sea,
tides sinking ships.

Wave after wave,
we sink and drown.
Splash in the ocean,
you hear no sound.
Sleep beneath me.

Sleeping under the waves I,
struggle to keep you alive...

It's going to take some time now,
by way of rock carved into stone.

Anchored in my sea.
Capsizing ships, we drown.
Streets tide, flow in, flow out.

It takes some of us longer than we hoped,
to find what we can really call a home.
Bursting through the air,
crash into the ground.
Try to justify what you think you found.

Bursting through atmosphere.
Rockets, we are nothing but gone.
There's nothing like home so,
take off or crash to the ground.
Solved me into every equation.
I am the alpha, the odd, the opaque faker.
Track Name: Cosmic Dance 2
The land, desolate.
Broadcast your attacks.
The world, irrelevant.
Throwing shape and shards.

Colliding into the one thing we still love.

I want to say the first thing that comes to mind.
But I'll stay silent,
I'll kill you from the inside.
Out here where there's nothing else for me to find.

Secretly, we hope it won't work out.
For fear of greater failure.
Go form a trail,
show me the answer.
Now there won't be a questions why.
Lay me down.
Synthesizing my veins,
my limbs brought me here.
Tear them down,
tear them down,
tear them down.

To the holy grail lost in the snow,
(Exercised my essence,)
I fear for my life but I now know.
Don't let me hold you,
(intrigued your presence,)
your embrace is a cage.
I watched as the rage collected.
I'm just counting the exits.

I want to say the first thing that comes to mind.
But I'll stay silent,
I'll kill you from the inside.

The land, desolate.
Broadcast your attacks.
(Broadcast your attacks!)

Exercised my essence,
intrigued your presence,
please excuse my absence,
I'm just counting the exits.
Track Name: In Your Footsteps
Speech by Lil B "THE BASEDGOD" at NYU.
Track Name: Full Swing
(I can't guarantee feelings will subside.
You won't pull me back down this time.)

Tried to catch you in the back of my mind,
It only works backwards through time.
(I'll say what you want, if you give me what I need.)
Peace of mind, that's a place to hide.
Giant sculptures replace you.
There's no time, there's no time...

(My cause is weak, but I know I can hold you...)

My cause is weak, but I know I can hold you.
If you want me to.
It works within reason of a dividing line,
if driven to the other side.

I can't guarantee feelings will subside.
You won't pull me back down this time.
My love, I want to be somewhere you are not.

Well hopefully this verse will bring me more Dopamine.
And I gotta get a little bit cause the level that I'm living with, right now, ain't where it's supposed to be.
Will somebody please tell me why I gotta be in the middle of a battle between what's right and what's wrong?
I need to learn to say no, so I could move on.
I need to learn to say no, when I am too gone.
My stomach lining can't handle me when I do wrong.
And we both know when the candles lit, take the clothes off.
If you were in my position, I bet you'd dose off.
With all these drugs I was mixing, would make you go soft.
But not me, full swing, hit the bullseye.
Never miss my mark...
Never miss my mark...
Track Name: Dry Seasons Pt. 3
Stagnant, I am the ever fleeing flow.
Intersecting my eyes, you're woven in time.

Till then I won't be the same.
Till then I won't be the same.
Its not important,
I couldn't find pure feelings.
The chords leading to the trees.
It's affecting my mind.
Fear infecting my mind.
I feel so lost, I feel so lost...

Stories lost in stories.
Stories lost in stories.
Stories lost in stories.
Stories lost in...

Wool covers my eyes,
I'll have to take this one slow...
Can I? Can I?
Can I? Can I?
Till then will I be sane?
Was I ever truly sane?
Can I? Can I?
Can I? Can I?

Wool covers my eyes,
I'll have to take this one slow
Slow down, slow down.
Slow down, slow down...

(Slow down, slow down...
Slow down, slow down...)

I won't let it get the best of me this time...

If the battles were all for nothing...
I can't say I'm here for loathing.

Love is still uncomfortable,
It's... Stories, lost in, stories. Lost in.
Track Name: Philia
Sick love churns, I can't crawl out.
I am responsible, I know that now.

Eyes can't see, the echoes, storming the mountains.
And it doesn't seem that problematic just to sleep.

You once, found the one...

Now I am lost, again.
You said to me, "thoughts are condemned."
Retire old friends, or feelings...
After it's too late, it's not too late...

Time collects like dust,
for fear of better thoughts.
It's done, I see, it's done.
One line divides the other.
It's custom I know.
Now love is uncomfortable.
I'm responsible...

I've reached out now to you, it's all in vain.
I know now I am to...
Blame! This all on my incompetence,
I know it's a game you play.

Mistakes were made but it was all for you...
(For you.)
Track Name: Death In Bloom
Fearful I am, of your ghost.

Fearful of what I am the most.
Water drips down my spine.
I scream out hot breath but falls short and cold.

The water keeps sinking in through these bullet holes.
I could walk along the surface,
only if you were worth it. (Worth it)

Ration the ships and what they were once fueled with inside.
Doomed themselves, trapped within our complex design.

Sketching the canvas,
I will create something better.
You were once a perfect design.
Water marked, sold yourself short.

Could I let it go?
I could let you go.
You loved me when I was easy to control.
Could I break away?
In every gift you gave,
an opportunity to take from me

(Could I let it go?
I could let you go.
You loved me when I was easy to control)

I could walk along your path,
if you tried to make it last.

And don't let me go,
You were my home and my savior.
I was safe now but alone.
Sinking into the water,
I'll let you go.
