Track Name: The Wired
i'd like to draw a picture
please Don't mess up the mixture
i'm going full chameleon
whats that up on the ceiling?

i'd like to know

now who the fuck was that dude?
man, life is such a crapshoot
i'm wearing full regalia
what did they try to sell ya?

i'd like to know

what are you looking for?
where is your destiny?
i want to see the world, take me with you
i can't get out
if there's a way
i'd like to know

i'm stuck inside the wired
looking for Lain, i'm tired
i saw her last Tuesday
she flew off like a blue jay
Track Name: Proxy 1
day 72
i can't tell you how many times we've been through
the same conversation
please lay off the juice
breaks your concentration 6 more times than 2
i can't take it

3 miles underground
lies a military base we haven't found
constantly we're searching
ray cats glowing green
what i wouldn't give to see a flowing stream
i can make it

understand you're mine
you're the only human being left to find
there aint no one else around this place for miles
you can run but it may take you quite a while
to escape me

day 1005
i'm the only of my unit to survive
had to bury all my brothers in the san
far from home out in a foreign godless land
please forgive me

i'm in endless night
been so long it seems i've lost all track of time
only way to see my path is by the moon
have a feeling that my journeys ending soon
end transmission
Track Name: 路
我在这里走啊走
看看世界什么样
形形色色的人们
都和我擦肩而过
我走了长长的路
无论刮风或下雨
认识的人没很多
聊得来的有几个

一路上笑过哭过
疯疯癫癫不停休
爱人朋友在左右
喝点小酒真开心
早起海边看日出
傍晚阳台看星星
爬到山顶吹吹风
潜水听鱼儿说话

做我喜欢的事
听我喜欢的歌

生活可以很简单
丢掉不要的报复
带上轻松好心情
就可以出发上路
我在这里走啊走
看看世界什么样
形形色色的人们
都和我擦肩而过

做我喜欢的事
听我喜欢的歌
Track Name: Djinn
another one
i'm back again with another one
up in the sky there's another son
seems like you're blind so i brought it up
get out of town when the thunder comes
the rain and flood come to smother ya
leave you with wounds to recover from
out in the mud with the blood and guts

there's no hesitation when the guillotine comes down
pray for preservation
but we choose to revel in the flashing lights and sounds
savor the sensation

another one
something is coming and i wonder what
ca't you hear the screams come from under us
can't shake the feeling that somethings up
ghost on the ceiling like what the fuck
gnashing its teeth on some bubblegum
burning the plebs at the country club
now is the time you should up and run
get up and run

there's no hesitation when the guillotine comes down
pray for preservation
but we choose to revel in the flashing lights and sounds
savor the sensation
Track Name: Bursting
ahh
Track Name: 山海经
又东三十里遇见奇珍怪兽
我食下不死草与之搏斗
顿时力大无穷战胜它
西王母听闻我的聪慧勇敢
派青鸟请我来瑶池做客
赏美景 乐无穷

上西昆山看黄帝蚩尤之战
风雨交错女魃助战止水
她耗尽神力无法回天
我请求皇帝赐她赤水安家
与世无争不饶人间凡事
神北行 无雨下
神北行 无雨下

宵明烛光神容颜绝世无双
灵光照亮四方

夸父追太阳喝光了黄河水
身体变成山

应龙杀蚩尤人间兴云覆雨
所到处有生命

凤鸟如出现德顺仁义在身
天下会太平
Track Name: Mr. Tophat
bulldozer, God's soldiers
be kamikaze pilots
be drifting dead sprits
with eyes of violet

somewhere
there's no air
just dead staring empty spaces
i really don't care to go see those places

to tell the truth
i never saw them
no one knows them
when they're gone

when I was so young
i was haunted by a creature
but as i grew older it lost its features

to tell the truth
i never saw him
no one knows him
he is gone
Track Name: Song for Terrill Mast
Opens up his notebook
upon a mountain top in mid spring
105 melodies in his head
but he's thinking now of one thing

Panama sky on his mind
fine..
but he knows now that he must go
somewhere in time where the shorelines high
and cosmic melodies flow

Mediamonster

held up in a basement
or in a parking lot in Pilsen
another day is but another song sometimes
and he's written About A Million

in a world so fast
will they just look past?
will they all remember us?

but for Terrill Mast
i know its a fact
they will hear the cry of the Mediamonster

home
i will go
Track Name: Not What You Might See
see the world just like a movie
then turn off the tv
and you'll find how time
makes you re-align

step back
watch the others moving
and they seem dead
but they never tell me why
why won't they tell me?

its true that i
once knew you well
but now you're only
what they breath
and me..
well i'm not what you might see

wonder why we would want this soul destroyed
is the world out toy now?
can we understand that its in our hands?

something bigger than the voice inside me calls
takes me by the hand a shows me why
why they won't tell me

they want it all
but i'm the only one thats here right now
so i breath
and be
but i'm not where you might see
