Track Name: The Fall
you can think what you want
but it doesn’t change the facts of the matter
there are no facts of the what’s the matter with you?
you seem to think in terms of false and true
you seem to think in terms of false and true

bright lights of the big city blind me out of my mind me
I don’t have a clue what i’m talking about
I just shout out nonsense to try and make sense of what i see
oh, don’t mind me
I’m just an ant standing still
in the middle of all these crumbling walls
watching the fall
Track Name: Time
can’t find the time
to figure out my mind
what’s a boy to do?
what are any of us to do?

kill the clock
find time for your mind
slow on down
stop, relax a bit
find time to analyze
to answer all the whys
let it all sink in
let it all sink

dissipate in your psyche
take hold, root, grow, slowly
Track Name: Omni
I failed the test
I’m put out of your trite contest
outsider to your grand experimental mess
I undress myself of the clothes you’ve robed me in
begin to take a step towards what i see

oh, drown me
in everlasting bliss
steal a kiss from the mist
and sink down in the sea
I return to me

what do you want from me?
I thought i opted out
conscientiously abstained
only to be arraigned
in the courts of the emperor
I render to you what is yours
but you always want more

you’re breaking down the doors
to my mind
you’re not happy with it simply confined
you want it all
you want it all
Track Name: Terror
we’ve caught the bug
we’re eaten up
wrapped up in your
blanket names for
all those things that
go bump in the night

we’re terrified
oh, we’re terrified
we’re terrified of ourselves
oh, won’t you save us from us?
Track Name: I Walk
wake up to bitter sweet smell of concrete
désolé it’s the way it’s got to be
c’est la vie
turn the key and open up to me

now die here in the down beat so low down
velvet clouds surround the ground on which I
decay blindly I need time to go and
grow my own set of wings for the time being

I walk
