Track Name: Curse Of The...
[Instrumental]
Track Name: Dragonfly
Ordinary, ordinary, ordinary

The essence of the wind
Standing still in flight then falling in
Pay attention to the things on which we land
Follow where heroes won't go
Fortune or not, you'll never know
Whirlwinds tear across the drifting sand

Ordinary, ordinary

I could be your dragonfly, such a curious engender
You're so different, you're shifting shapes with me
I'll take you where your dragons fly, till the gates are closed remember
This dream is more than ordinary

I rest my wings in your dreams, you'll never know quite what that means
If you watch me close then you could understand
Then looking in the pond, you'll see it coming from beyond
The nymph-like creature in your hand

Ordinary, ordinary

I could be your dragonfly, such a curious engender
You're so different, you're shifting shapes with me
I'll take you where your dragons fly, till the gates are closed remember
This dream is more than ordinary

I could be your dragonfly, such a curious engender
You're so different, you're shifting shapes with me
I'll take you where your dragons fly, till the gates are closed remember
This dream is more than ordinary
Track Name: Amphibian
I'm running away from the circus
To find a new home
I'm trading my colors for worthless
Corporate monochrome

Living a lie while walking in truth
Wickedly, innocently
You can't get a straight answer from me
Deviant, I've been expecting you
Hand in your badge and your gun and get out
Maybe you'll see what this city's about

In moments the irony caught up to me
Surface... if you can't laugh

I'm running away from the circus
They're running away from me
I've been painting this smile on for so long
Oh the vanity!

Racking my brain on the tracks of the train
Two-headed beast disagreements
Yet I haven't said anything since
Souvenirs from the world aren't allowed
Heaven and hell have their boundaries
And the earth closes in around me

In moments the irony caught up to me
Surface... if you can't laugh

Then you must be serious, so delirious
What do have to be so anxious about?
Get the fuck out with your
Antidepressant psychiatrist sessions
It's only the face that you wear
Make your confessions at your own discretion
It's only the face that you wear

Put it on

Fake a smile and they smile back
Fake a smile and they smile back
Fake a smile and they smile back

In moments the irony caught up to me
Surface... if you can't laugh
Track Name: Dark Lantern
In a brisk magnetic field
The iron man had dreamed
That the midas touch had turned him to gold
Inside he would never change

Sentiment to cut so deep
But he hardly made a dent
He was a lantern with a shutter device
To dark for his intent

I hold this beckoning beacon

A stab in the dark, a stab in the dark
With a ring of endless light
You missed the mark, how could you be
So blind
To the lantern that he shines on you
Through the shutters of his heart (Shutters of his heart)
A dark lantern's never too far
How could you be so blind?

So he fled to the underground
In malcontent, disgust
The blood and iron draining from his veins
And turned him into rust

Called to be the salt and the light
With the torch passed on to him
If they could see him now, they'd snuff it right out
The flame had grown so dim

I hold this beckoning beacon

A stab in the dark, a stab in the dark
With a ring of endless light
You missed the mark, how could you be
So blind
To the lantern that he shines on you
Through the shutters of his heart (Shutters of his heart)
A dark lantern's never too far
How could you be so blind?

A stab in the dark, a stab in the dark
With a ring of endless light
You missed the mark, how could you be
So blind
To the lantern that he shines on you
Through the shutters of his heart (Shutters of his heart)
A dark lantern's never too far
How could you be so blind?
Track Name: The Mutiny (Arrgh!!!)
Voiced our complaints to the top of the ladder
I heard they're dealt with by some tea-sipping mad-hatter
And with or without you, we're meeting in secret
Plotting the day we will bring him to his knees
He's on his last leg as it is, let's start this mutiny

The man in the crow's nest watches it happen
But he won't go down with those fools
An aura of safety follows the captain
He has the gold, he makes the rules

Our minds were set but our heads were uncertain
Pay no attention to the man behind the curtain
The intimidation, facade of a madman
And under the pressure of his feet, the eggshell cracks
Ready or not, the incubated plot begins to hatch

The man in the crow's nest watches it happen
But he won't go down with those fools
An aura of safety follows the captain
He has the gold, he makes the rules

If this ship should go down, he'll be the last to drown
If this ship should go down, he'll be the last to drown
If this ship should go down, he'll be the last to drown

Straddle the fence, neutrality to think
And knowing him he'll probably walk the plank
He'll walk the plank

The man in the crow's nest watches it happen
But he won't go down with those fools
An aura of safety follows the captain
He has the gold, he makes the rules

If this ship should go down, he'll be the last to drown
And knowing him, he'll probably walk the plank
Track Name: Cabin Fever I
No signs of life dotting the coast
Avoiding patrols when it counts the most
Which is all the time
We can't turn this thing on the edge of a dime

With the police hot on our wake
The red and blue flashes light our mistake
We worked hard for this
Cracking our knuckles and pounding our fists
In a secret code, knock on the door
Less than eleven miles out from the shore

There's a disco downstairs and the music and lights
Suggest that cargo aboard has been opened tonight
Safety is not our concer, we'll let midnight oil burn
Return with the wild life wonder, hold your breath because we're going under

We've got cabin fever, cabin fever
We've got cabin fever, cabin fever
We've got cabin fever, cabin fever
We've got cabin fever, cabin fever

Jump into the jam and tell me what you can
Through your body language, 90% of all conversation
Figured to be through body movement, that means the dance floor I'll do the other 10
Break it down, you don't gotta know how, diverse tones and tunage, just feel the music
Rhythm in your legs, and bass in your lungs and the next part should roll right off the tongue
C'MON!

We've got cabin fever, cabin fever
We've got cabin fever, cabin fever
We've got cabin fever, cabin fever
We've got cabin fever, cabin fever

I once was a little boy
I fight with my own two hands
I write with my right
But my left doesn't know or understand

With the police hot on our wake
The red and blue flashes light our mistake
We worked hard for this
Cracking our knuckles and pounding our fists
In a secret code, knock on the door
Less than eleven miles out from the shore

There's a disco downstairs and the music and lights
Suggest that cargo aboard has been opened tonight
Safety is not our concer, we'll let midnight oil burn
Return with the wild life wonder, hold your breath because we're going under

I once was a little boy
I fight with my own two hands
I write with my right
But my left doesn't know or understand
I once was a little boy
I fight with my own two hands
I write with my right
But my left doesn't know or understand
Track Name: Cabin Fever II: The Return Of Cabin Fever
There's no privacy in prison
No cubicle with a screen anymore
Holes in the roof are dripping
And the cracks keep mopping up the floor

Gravity gives me a muse, I suppose
Let's dig a tunnel, and see where it goes

Warmth!
In the walls of the tempest's angry beehive
Sprays liquid bullets around the storms
With a bolt to the lightning splits
The dark from the dark in attempt to believe
In the truth of the ground
Warmth!
In the walls of the tempest's angry beehive
Sprays liquid bullets around the storms
With a bolt to the lightning splits
The dark from the dark in attempt to believe
In the truth of the ground

If it smells like cologne, then leave it alone
A nick-nack paddywack, give a dog a bone
A kid can be a kid at discovery zone
Party up, have a party of your own
If it smells like cologne, then leave it alone
A nick-nack paddywack, give a dog a bone
A kid can be a kid at discovery zone
Party up, have a party of your own

If it smells like cologne, then leave it alone
A nick-nack paddywack, give a dog a bone
A kid can be a kid at discovery zone
Party up, have a party of your own

There's no privacy in prison
No cubicle with a screen anymore
Holes in the roof are dripping
And the cracks keep mopping up the floor

Gravity gives me a muse, I suppose
Let's dig a tunnel, and see where it goes

Warmth!
In the walls of the tempest's angry beehive
Sprays liquid bullets around the storms
With a bolt to the lightning splits
The dark from the dark in attempt to believe
In the truth of the ground

No signs of life dotting the coast
Avoiding patrols when it counts the most
Which is all the time
We can't turn this thing on the edge of a dime
Track Name: Oblivious To Oblivion
To the furthest corners
My destination extends beyond equilibrium
To be truly human is exploration
Oblivious to oblivion

The sun still revolves around the earth
Everything happens here at the center of this universe
Time has bounds, and the days seem to be numbered
Yet the limit to the human mind has yet to be discovered

See for yourself, see if it's true
See if this makes sense to you
Unaware of what has been forgotten
But it's not what it seems
See for yourself, see if it's true
See if this makes sense to you
Don't you remember
What that means?

Question at the popular belief
Could the world still be flat?
Where's the edge and what's underneath
Chase the sun, manifest that destiny
Until you're right back where you started having witnessed that infinity

See for yourself, see if it's true
See if this makes sense to you
Unaware of what has been forgotten
But it's not what it seems
See for yourself, see if it's true
See if this makes sense to you
Don't you remember
What that means?

To the furthest corners, my destination
Extends beyond equilibrium
To be truly human is exploration
Oblivious to oblivion

See for yourself, see if it's true
See if this makes sense to you
Unaware of what has been forgotten
But it's not what it seems
See for yourself, see if it's true
See if this makes sense to you
Don't you remember
What that means?

See for yourself, see if it's true
(To the furthest corners)
See if this makes sense to you
(My destination)
Unaware of what has been forgotten
(Extends beyond equilibrium)
But it's not what it seems
(To be truly human)
See for yourself, see if it's true
(Is exploration)
See if this makes sense to you
(Oblivious)
Don't you remember
(To oblivion)
What that means?
Track Name: Dancing Guns
She came on a mechanical bull
With a wink and blew me a kiss
She's so unbelievable
So dangerous
I'm down for the ride, take me inside
I'm ready to burn
Rubber, enough said, into the sunset
Never return

Dancing guns
Shoot to entertain the thought
That I'm not hurting anyone
I just don't know what I want
Dancing guns
Fall in love
Oh, whatever happens after, it doesn't matter
Nothing to lose, it might be fun, Ms. Dancing Guns

She came on a mechanical bull
And told me to hold on tight
The push gave into the pull
All through the night
If it fits like a glove, could this be love?
How can I be sure?
I'm pistol whipped, this pistol grip
Feels so secure

To shoot me first and ask me questions later
Asking me what good is good behavior, anyway
Squinting out the sun, her fingers twitch
I'm having second thoughts about this
But then she was like...
And I was like...

Dancing guns
Shoot to entertain the thought
That I'm not hurting anyone
I just don't know what I want
Dancing guns
Fall in love
Oh, whatever happens after, it doesn't matter
Nothing to lose, it might be fun, Ms. Dancing Guns

She came on a mechanical bull
With a wink and blew me a kiss
She's so unbelievable
So dangerous
I'm down for the ride, take me inside
I'm ready to burn
Rubber, enough said, into the sunset
Never return

Dancing guns
Shoot to entertain the thought
That I'm not hurting anyone
I just don't know what I want
Dancing guns
Fall in love
Oh, whatever happens after, it doesn't matter
Nothing to lose, it might be fun, Ms. Dancing Guns
Track Name: Fuego
You can waste away, it's a holiday
Tie the tourniquet, returning it
Cut off the blood flow, let no one know
You're wasting it, letting it thrive, let it inside
Obsessed with revenge, yeah

I want an enemy, want an enemy, yeah
I want an enemy, an enemy, an enemy

I'm in love with you, I'm your prostitute
Let's get on with it, I'm your opposite
This is typical, make it difficult
You were the yin to my yang, when we became
Obsessed with revenge, yeah

I want an enemy, want an enemy, yeah
I want an enemy, an enemy, an enemy

Your impatient gaze has seen better days
And you hatefully sustain me
Power unparalleled in the weapon held
Rivals from birth and we are obviously
Obsessed with revenge, yeah

I want an enemy, want an enemy, yeah
I want an enemy, an enemy, an enemy

Someone I've got something in common with
Someone I've got something in common with
Someone I've got something in common with

I want an enemy, want an enemy
I want an enemy, an enemy
I want an enemy, want an enemy

Someone I've got something in common with
Track Name: Caducity
I can feel myself detach
That's how it is with an itch that you can't scratch
I exist, therefore I thought
I feel it there, though I know that it's not
Tingling will turn to nothing there
I once breathed fire, now I'm full of hot air
I don't need this anymore
I don't feel anything except for

Pins and needles, pins and needles
My phantom ego falling asleep again and on
Caducity's a bitch when you're all
Pins and needles, pins and needles
My phantom ego falling asleep behind the wheel
Off the road, now I can feel

Pins and needles, pins and needles
My phantom ego falling asleep again and on
Caducity's a bitch when you're all
Pins and needles, pins and needles
My phantom ego falling asleep behind the wheel
Off the road, now I can feel

Something stirring in my skull
Pride is weak and unreliable
Paralyze what matters most
When it counts, it's gone like a ghost
Tingling will turn to nothing there
I once breathed fire, now I'm full of hot air
I don't need this anymore
I don't feel anything except for

Pins and needles, pins and needles, pins and needles

Pins and needles, pins and needles
My phantom ego falling asleep behind the wheel
Off the road now I can really
Feel the needles, pins and needles
My phantom ego falling asleep again and on
Caducity's a bitch when you're a pawn

Pins and needles, pins and needles
My phantom ego falling asleep behind the wheel
Off the road now I can really
Feel the needles, pins and needles
My phantom ego falling asleep again and on
Caducity's a bitch when you're a pawn

Borrowed time can chase me to my grave and take it away!

Dum, dum, dad-dum
Bop, bop-a-loo-bop
