Track Name: Everything's Clear
Marching through life
Doing my best
To do what I am told
Then, you came along
And made me feel good
And not so old

Before you came along
Everything was so dark
But now, now that you're here
Everything is perfectly clear
And there is some light in my world
Yeah, there is some light in my world

Stumbling through life
Doing my best
To not get pulled under
Then, out of the black
A searchlight came through
And now I see color


Before you came along
Everything was so dark
But now, now that you're here
Everything is perfectly clear
And there is some light in my world
Yeah, there is some light in my world
Track Name: Back to the Time
I sat on the couch
Open eyes and open mouth
I was lost in thought
And I couldn't speak
I was thinking about the past
And how nothing ever lasts
And how I miss my brother
And does he miss me

I am always searching for the meaning of life
But I still haven't found it
Now that I am older the weather is colder
And my heart is too



Can we go
Back to the time
Back to the time
Back to the time
Can we go
Back to the time
Back to the time
Before this time


Staring up at the ceiling
And I can't shake this feeling
My mind is racing
Cause life is a mess
I don't know where I'm going
Anxiety's growing
I'm never in the place
Where I want to be

I am always searching for the meaning of life
But I still haven't found it
Now that I am older the weather is colder
And my heart is too


Can we go
Back to the time
Back to the time
Back to the time
Can we go
Back to the time
Back to the time
Before this time
Track Name: Hello Hand
Hello hand
Are you a good hand?
are you a bad hand?
or a morally ambiguous hand?

Hello hand
Do you feel loved, hand?
Wrapped inside your tiny glove and
Did everything go as planned?

Hello hand
It's nice to meet you
I should probably greet you
By shaking hands

Hello hand
Are you a sad hand
Idly watching the sand
In your hourglass fall

Hello Hand
I need another verse and
Can you lend me a hand?
Or are you too busy, man?

Hello hand
It's nice to meet you
I should probably greet you
By shaking hands
Track Name: Psychotronic
Medication
Coming Through
Track Name: Alien Hand Syndrome
No control over it
No power over it
The pulse is beating
But the pain won't quit
No power over it

I try to fight you
But really I'm just fighting myself
I try to medicate
But all these pills won't help
I wish you could
See through my flaws
I want to stop this
But I can't because

I've reached
the point
Where I
Cannot
Control myself
Control myself

I will
Never
Get rid
of these
Alien hands
Alien hands

Cognitive dissonance
Each muscle is tense
I close my eyes
cause that's my only defense
No power over it

I try to fight you
But really I'm just fighting myself
I try to medicate
But all these pills won't help
I'm waving at you
But I'm not saying goodbye
I hope someday
I'll start to understand why

I've reached
the point
Where I
Cannot
Control myself
Control myself

I will
Never
Get rid
of these
Alien hands
Alien hands

This demon inside of me
It won't let me be free
It whispers to me
and I'm starting to see
That I am a nobody
Track Name: Vivid Dreams
Last night, you said to me
That everything would work out
And we didn't fight
And we didn't shout

Everything you said to me
Everything that happened
Made me feel like I was worth something
Like I meant something

And then I woke up
From my dream
From my dream
And then I woke up 
From my dream
From my dream

Last night, I was with my friends
Sitting around a fire
I looked up at the night sky
And began to admire

The people around me
They made me feel like I mattered
They made me feel like I was worth something 
Like I meant something

And then I woke up 
From my dream
From my dream
And then I woke up 
From my dream
From my dream
Track Name: LCD
When our life flashes by, all we will see 
Are virtual worlds and camera screens
The stores will be bursting at the seams 
With piles of our discounted dreams 

And the fading glow of LCD
Looks good to me
Looks good to meee
And the fading glow of LCD
It won't come fast enough

The vampire is overhead
Looking for the children in their beds
It doesn't have wings so it can't fly
It floats in space with satellites

And the fading glow of LED
Looks good to me
Looks good to meee
And the fading glow of LED
It won't come fast enough

The world's an investment with diminishing returns
The dividends get smaller and no one learns
That the capital gains while the citizens sleep
Hide the skeletons away from the sheep
 
And the fading glow of humanity
Looks good to me
Looks good to meee
And the fading glow of humanity
It won't come fast enough
Track Name: Digital Tower
When friend opportunities start to turn sour
I retreat to the top of my digital tower
And I watch from above while they live out their lives
While the darkness rolls into my digital skies

As I struggle to keep track of their disguises
I look to myself and I start to despise
All the mountains of loneliness I have acquired
I struggle to be someone that they admire

And I push them away because I don't know how
To balance friendships in the here and the now
With one foot in the future and one in the past
I keep dead friendships locked up behind glass


I lay in the dark with light blasting my face
New data comes in and then it's replaced
And my eyes start to burn as they become dry
But I will never blink because I'm terrified

That I'll miss something that I may not see again
This constant flow never comes to an end
A digital river that never runs dry
I continue to scroll while my life passes by

I push them away because I don't know how
To balance friendships in the here and the now
With one foot in the future and one in the past
I keep my dead friendships locked up behind glass


When I find myself in a struggle for power
I retreat to the top of my digital tower
And I lay in my bed and I stay there for days
No one that knows I'm there, cause no one engages

When I feel like I've reached the threshold of sadness
I find new territory inside of my chest
A tiny pocket where happiness lies
And I watch as it shrinks, and it withers and dies

I push them away because I don't know how
To balance friendships in the here and the now
With one foot in the future and one in the past
I keep my dead friendships locked up behind glass
