Track Name: Blood Red Giants
There's something running strong, some kind of race just let 'em finish
Like blood red giants moving on, we can all burn out if we stay committed.

Down and out but still up and around, how ya do it?
Lost and found but still moving to the sound, pushing through it.

We're all just animations ending with a shout,
Frantically creating and erasing ourselves out.
It's wonderful to be here, I'm honored that you came.
But if you don't mind we'll all just stay and take off different names.
I'm not one for conflict but in this case I'll agree.
You can kill the fear inside and I'll just battle me.

Something running strong that's been there right from the beginning.
Been there all this long, it must take some time to start believing.

I love this wall of sound that we have built around all of the words that we sing.
Turn it into a house, oh just to bring it down on top of our everything.

I fear the worst for me. What if the race is finished? I'm still here asking the way.
If this is all we get, what have we got left over? I'll still take that any day.

Something running strong that's been there right from the beginning.
Been there all this long, it must take some time to start believing.
We're blood red giants moving 'cause burning out is one way to get it.
A mighty wind is blowing on, now were right back straight to forgetting.
Track Name: Paul Reubens Holding Wasps
Way down in this pit of despair,
Take account for all that we've been left with.
Outstretch your hand when confronted with this fear.
Same one all our mothers tried their best with.

No more will we submit to or refuse
Those amusing other-worldly creatures will we?
In the middle of this coldest war I'd just as soon not lose,
But the fighting will take all that I've got in me.

Where is the sunlight? Oh! Down with today.
Talk 'til you're wasted and then waste away.
Out with the straight talk and in with the blame.
Oh, what a feeling!

Are we alone?
Or is that just the way we like it?
Whats so wrong,
with holding on to one thing divided?

What's gone on with all the things I used to love.
I've been so out of it here lately.
Instead of moving forward I think I'll just murder time and use up all my minutes left to watch it all.

We're on the front-lines of this new today.
Run 'til you're tired and then waste away.
Out with the straight lines and in with the fray.
Dancing these few lines then call it a day.

Where is the sunlight? Oh! Down with today!
Run 'til you're tired and then waste away.
Out with the straight lines and in with the fray.
Oh, what a feeling!
Track Name: Poor Posture #1
All this time spent beeing needy,
We've got ourselves in a hole.
And we dig so deep, getting hotter now.
Our depth we can't control.

But this doesn't mean that we're stuck in place.
Let's not repeat history,
But to be alone and attest to this sure scares the shit out of me.

So if one day you feel worthless
like no one dares speak your name,
Just recall the time you reached out for this.
To death we're all the same.

So if nothing starts when we say goodnight
Don't you be so surprised.
So let's celebrate and remember this from now until we die.

Can we stand, stand up straight?
Can we hold all this weight?
Can we stand, stand up straight?
Can we hold all this weight?

Can we stand, stand up straight?
Can we hold all this weight?
Can we stand, stand up straight?
Can we hold all this weight?
Track Name: Between Some Lions
It seems we're in a struggle.
The spoils of victory locked in a current.
Live to the point where you see double.
'Cause walking straight just has its ups and downs.

With no hope to survive

Well not all is lost.
There are too many crevices in sea beds unexplored.
So grab an underwater camera,
we can start here at the shore.

Let's be off.
Let's be gone by the time that they come looking.
Is it already time to go?

We're too scared to stand up and too lazy to die.
Dying is worth it if you can't even try.
Steal all the convo at the visitation.
Use peripherals for that.
I remember that. I remember that.

With no hope to survive.
