Track Name: Topsy Turvy
It's the laissez-unfaire estate
negotiating hegemony
with power points in bureaucracy
that we can't fake
this ain't democracy
and that's no halo
we only know the things we're saying out loud
fasten that to the fact that we never say enough
read exactly what you wrote
to see what others think they know
with awful all around
we have no choice but to refuse
we'll all be knowing really soon
this pillow wants a mountain
one trickier than a fountain's wake
I don't save face just for the thrill
I do do it for keeps
Track Name: Discontinuity
You know we all will retrieve a library
It's a better way to try and know it all
It's also a good way to shave your eyes
SIng to those ways that we behave
See below, we all exhale
What we don't know yet
We let the bastards see
This time tomorrow these plans ignite
You better look out
SInce we all listen slowly
We might as well sing
It's so dark
What a mood to be in anyway...
but there's something to it
Delay while I answer this stranger rhetorically
Be strange, be safe
Be safe and be late to your second best day
Track Name: Snidely Whiplash
I was caught listening to winners
as if the best what's performend
to think what ought to be made
is something we've never seen before
there's no way performance
can reveal what's important
there's no way performance
can show us what we need
something like an airplane
comes once in a while
the liquid cast turned winding glass
and we treat just like a wall
purpose is opinion that wished to be fact
when we found a clear truth
the whole company laughed
there's no way opinion
can show us what we need
life is not something you can tie at a village
it's something you can find over the phone
life is what you get rebelling from the world around
start by submitting your magistrates
they're probably under the order, you go look
I'll find here it's alright now
Now put them on...yeah
you must be at least, reading pants
before you leave your parents Greece
You don't want the police to arrest you
for disarming a hero
Now go outside
nada nuevo
nothing to wait for
