1.
I am hanging from both arms Got an itch on my nose I would let myself fall but I got no where to go I am lying through my teeth To myself I know I could the tell truth but I I got no where to go I am hanging from both arms Could you scratch my nose I would let myself down but I got no where to go I am walking down my street It's a place I know I would run away but I I got no where to go
2.
Coming from the sky Light into our minds And now we see how There was no choice Summoned to destroy Thoughts they fall apart But we can see now There was no choice
3.
I smashed my sense into a million pieces I'll never find them again I won't even look for them because I like it better this way I could try But I won't try I will die But don't you cry I could try But I don't try I will die But that's just fine

A person comes home They don't know where they've been They look in the mirror They don't know who they are They check their phone There's one message waiting there They push the button The message starts to play There was never anyone from the start It comes together, slowly part by part This same person They're getting a handle There was no mystery Only the perceivable truth They leave their home again They walk out into the street There's people everywhere The person begins to shout I was never anyone from the start I put myself together, part by part Today it Will open Tomorrow

I take my face off when I go to sleep Just to remember what it's like to be me I put my eyes in a case by my side I see the darkness opening wide I put my heart in a case on the shelf I watch it pump, outside of myself I leave my brain in a box on the floor Where I'm going I won't need it anymore You take your face off when you are alone Just to remember where you came from You drop your eyes in a glass by the sink You see the noise that you make when you think You place your heart in the cupboard below And you watch as it starts to slow You lay your brain in a bowl set aside You won't need it where you're going tonight

If I was just an arm without a torso well I could still wave to you And you'd come over take me by the hand just like you know I want you to If I was just a mouth without a face well I could still call out to you And when you're close you'd hold me to your ear and then I'd tell you what to do But I don't want to have a body now I want to go but it will hold me down And when I think of all I'll never do Oh I can blame that on my body too Yeah I don't want to have a body now And I can't fly cause it will hold me down And when I think of all I'll never do Well I can blame that on my body too If I was just an eye without a skull well I could still gaze unto you And I would never have to miss a single thing that I know you do If I was just a soul without a home well I could still live here with you I see no better way to be together than by making one from two

You were the monster in my dream last night, you had the coldest eyes they were devoid of life, and I I could not run from the shadows you cast, and you were all the skeletons from my past, and I I collapsed running into the sand, and you You took me up in your demonic hand, and I I started crying like a hopeless child, and you You just held me in your arms a while I was the monster in your dream last night, I was A horrid shell only in for a fight, and you You could not run and I was everywhere, and I twisted your arm and I did not care, and you You cried out to try to reach my heart, but I I was a monster I had no such part, and I I smothered you under my feathered limbs, and you You went silent, you accepted it
8.
We had a fight It wasn't right But what can I say It's out there now Tiny words are falling your eyes I can read them as they hit the ground Where they assemble into your truth And everything that you couldn't say Becomes so much clearer And now I know just what you mean I didn't mean The things that I said But what can I say It's out there now

Waste my time I don't mind It's just fine In my mind I will live Many years Waiting here I'll be here And You'll Know Just where find to me When You Figure it out Check the time It's alright Only five You look surprised I can wait For time to break I'll be here I'm always here
10.
I'm not giving up I just don't give a %@#* I'm just having some fun Cause I don't give a %@#*
11.
He is waiting for his body to break When time comes knocking at his door Cause they promised he could leave this place if He was a good boy She is waiting for her heart to break Under the weight of the world Cause they promised she could leave this place if She was a good girl I'm just waiting for my mind to break When I can't take it anymore There are no promises I'm looking to have Lived my life for
12.
Everybody's lookin out for themselves Gotta make a home to hide away But maybe they just don't see They're gonna be a casualty Of this culture Oh, well it's gonna happen It's gonna happen They don't know it's gonna happen Cause I guess they just don't see They're gonna be a casualty Of this culture Inside the belly of the beast How can we not be A casualty of this culture Lock your doors, close your blinds Keep that world away, oh But baby you just don't see You're gonna be a casualty Of this culture Oh, I've seen it happen It's gonna happen It's gonna happen Cause baby you just don't see You're gonna be a casualty Of this culture Watch as your neighbours they fall prey And your city goes astray And you're all content to stay In this culture

about

An endurance challenge album. December 2013, I challenge myself to produce a brand new track each day for at least 12 straight days. Whatever I manage to make each day is the final track. Trying to raise money for the foodbank by getting others to pledge based on my final track count.
