Track Name: Bite Your Tongue
Read my mind and you'll find that I'm just a guy
Strange to think a brain can think and rationalise
Living in a world turning endlessly
What do you believe?
The supremacy is functioning properly
Sit the fuck down and drink your cup of tea
Track Name: Don't Ask God, Ask The Weatherman
Don't ask god ask the weatherman
He knows it all he's on the T.V.
Cracking jokes and puns a clever man
Cloudy days and rain forever

Find Space when
They're getting in your face
Just say when
Now

I saw a frog, he jumped to the moon and back
Just to prove he had the biggest legs
Told his friends about the weather there
Frog to frog, rabbit rabbit no one fucking cares

Find Space when
they're getting in your face
Just say when
Now
Track Name: Food for Sheep
Check one, two, three, four, five, it doesn't fucking matter don't even try
I live by the rules of the master, experience enhancer, prancing on the edge of a stage like a dirty dancer
Your conversations thrive on the word so...
(Did you see what happened on T.V. last night?)
No!
News taken lightly, everybody seems to take it hard, I hardly take it in, information goes for...
Ever never ending source of food for the hungry little gossip girls
(Did you see what happened to?)
Some little fucker who earns more in a day than you do in a year
(But look at all the clothes that I can wear)
And you can wear them too to be cool, the coolest kid in school is the one with the new shoes,
Authority subtly sculpting minds, obsessed to look like Kim Kardashian's visibly bloated breasts

Brainwashed
Look at the T.V. and you will see yourself to be hooked
Brainwashed

A Mexican mountain - Popocatepetl, I climbed it
In my dreams it was easy to find it
What did you climb typical teen?
(I got into the hardcore punk scene)
No you didn't, you listened to a Green Day song
(But Billy makes fun of Americans and he is one)
Oh ma, a man who mocks his own nation
He's taking the piss what an inspiration
Cash taken softly from consumers you and me alike
Herded into fields, trying to make us a specific type

Brainwashed
Look at the T.V. and you will see yourself to be hooked
Brainwashed

Fuck the media
Food for the sheep
Fuck the media
Food for the sheep
Look at the T.V. and you will see yourself to be hooked
Track Name: Fuck Off
Leave me to my drawings and my pictures
I use block crayons to do my architecture
You want something done? I'll design
Take that worried look off your face I do this all the time!

I was walking down the street and I saw your face so fuck off
I not talking to you but I'm talking to you so fuck off

Hail thee, that's not useful information
I'm satisfied with my own imagination
You need something done? I'll decline
Let me be, let me see, let me live my own life

I was walking down the street and I saw your face so fuck off
I not talking to you but I'm talking to you so fuck off
Track Name: Grey Area
My line - please don't cross it
It's about time you drew your own
My line - my piece of artwork is childlike
Somewhat below

Fine go and do that, see if it bothers me, it will but I'll stay quiet and just sit in the corner and burn, then I'll gap it turn, non of your concern I learn it's people like yourself only care when it's them you gets hurt

I don't think you know you're doing it
Grey area known as etiquette

Quickly - sidestep one way then you hit me
Where you want
Quickly - your life depends on moving swiftly
Where did you go?

Liver dying immediately, you're too cool for that apparently, you see sugar, refined or raw, we want more, fat people on the street, diabetes galore

I don't think you know you're doing it
Grey Area known as etiquette

Lights out, that's what the children are told they don't agree but fall asleep as soon the switch goes
I guess we'll find out what it did when they grow old
Will they be limited edition? Will they get things sold?
Track Name: Mighty Beast ll
Sharp teeth and a venemous stare
You better watch out cause he doesn't care
He'll rape your thoughts, he's done it before
You know your in the shit when you hear him raw

Coming for you
He's a shadow in the night he knows everything, drinks blood, eats flesh
Urinates on you
And you your family, everything you own, your home is a litter-box
He's coming for you

His favourite meal is blood and bone
He'll drag you up to his throne
Men and women, young old
You better watch out, you've been told

Coming for you
He's a shadow in the night he knows everything, drinks blood, eats flesh
Urinates on you
And you your family, everything you own, your home is a litter-box
He's coming for you
Track Name: My Gooey Brain
Your eyes have been quietly pulling me
Put simply, I'm trying not to think
Fade up, brains stuck, we are one, fuck, stretched like your ears, a gut feeling
I second guess, I'm a mess, your voice your views have shown me
Skin caressed, love suppressed, I don't care if it's ugly
Strangers, our hands, hearts dance, look me in the holes of my face and talk honest

I believed you
I believed you
I believed you
I believed you

Welling up, breaking down, my gooey brain is leaking
Down my throat, out my eyes, I just keep on believing
Ahh ha ha

Take a seat, join the freak, a broken house will offer
Opportunity, my doubts pollute the lack of water
Take a seat, join the freak, a broken house will offer
Opportunity, my doubts pollute the lack of water

Selling me to the Japanese, I'm a robot on the verge of turning on the company, do you agree to never be free? No, but that's society

I believed you
I believed you
I believed you
I believed you

Join the freak
Join the freak, take a seat
Join the freak
Join the freak, take a seat

I believed you
I believed you
I believed you
I believed you
I believed you
I believed you
I believed you
I believed you
Track Name: Shit Gets Lost
Where's my head gone? Have I screwed it on wrong? The threads too long to follow, so I'll skip right to the end you see and then I'll make a mess with a mop, spot the irony
Don't get the words wrong, whatever suits the song, a change of heart from you please tell me where the fuck that came from
So I'll skip right to the end you see and then I'll press rewind, you'll get the story straight eventually

Shit gets lost
I don't know how
Oh my god
Let it go
Fuck it

Colourful candle a distraction from the scandal
"Look at these!" he says and points to the things you can't seems to handle and we don't know why
I look for shit as time passes, like grandpa and his glasses
They're on your head you silly fool
I thought you'd learnt that after last time
Did you?

Shit gets lost
I don't know how
Oh my god
Let it go
Fuck it
