Track Name: Irrational
I go out, When you get in
That's the way, It's always been
Troubles they, Follow you
In the end, They find me too

You are nothing but bad ideas
Oh, won't you let me please
Just, get on with my things
I don't need what you bring
But how can we divide
I can't say I haven't tried
And you will never change
So I'll just manage the pain

I don't know what, you want from me
All you are, is anarchy
I want to think, I'm in control
Truth is that, I never know

You are nothing but bad ideas
Oh, won't you let me please
Just, get on with my things
I don't need what you bring
But how can we divide
I can't say I haven't tried
And you will never change
Oh you will never

No, but you are a part of me
Oh, you can't be apart from me
No, you're always inside of me
Oh, cause you are a part of me

You are nothing but bad ideas
Oh, won't you let me please
Just, do things my own way
I don't need what you say
But how can we divide
I can't say I haven't tried
And you will never learn
And I'm the one who'll burn
Track Name: Process
Sometimes I wonder if I'm losing my mind
Occasionally I think maybe I already have
There's moments when I don't know why to fit in
It helps if I imagine myself as an alien spy

Constantly I consider if I'm doing the right thing
Seldom do I ever really figure it out
I can't stop feeling that I should be thinking
I try to be blunt so I don't have to explain
--
Often I ponder the concept of nothingness
I'll try to envision it as a destination
Frequently I study the ways I react
I'll do things just to find out what happens next

Always I want to identify my ticks
I tolerate them like I would a small pet
Rarely I dwell in the case of emergency
I slowly accept the rapid decline
--
Habitually I let out long sighs for no real reason
I try to make time to acknowledge my privilege
Regularly I'm afraid of committing to changes
When I'm alone there's no need to compromise

Over and over I ask the same questions
Repeatedly I get new answers
Usually I reflect on the end result
I like to walk in shoes that were made for running
--
Periodically I prefer to ignore some elements
Big pictures rely on rules to make any sense
Now and again I recognize how everything could shift
I'm reluctant to dedicate myself to a paradigm

Invariably I realize I'm forgetting about something
Absurdity is an escape and my only defence
Customarily I make mistakes to view myself through them
I can't trust myself cause I know that I'm human
--
This is a process
We're making progress
Everybody confess
Give in to the process
