Track Name: High
When I was young
I took a lot of drugs
It was all in fun
Just a way to cop a buzz
Now I am old
And I take a lot of drugs
To keep my mind controlled
Put it back the way it was

Cause I've been very high
Planetary high
I've seen angels walking by
I've seen spaceships fill the sky
And I've been very stoned
Just talking all alone
Until a voice said one day
That my mind was gone

Is it just me
Or am I no longer me
Try to keep my chemistry
All in perfect harmony
If I stop taking drugs
It would be like taking drugs
And I don't wanna get high
I've already seen enough

Cause I've been very high
Planetary high
I've seen angels walking by
I've seen spaceships fill the sky
And I've been very stoned
Just talking all alone
Until a voice said one day
That my mind was gone

And the question is
did I wanna come down
And the question is
Did I really come down
And the question is
will I ever come down
And the question is
And the question is

Cause I've been very high
Planetary high
I've seen angels walking by
I've seen spaceships fill the sky
And I've been very stoned
Just talking all alone
Until a voice said one day
That my mind was gone
Track Name: Old
Tell all your friends
We're not selling out
We're just getting old
Tell all your friends
We're not selling out
We're just getting old

Can't you tell
I'm not me
Can't you see
I'm not well
Can't you tell
I'm not me
Can't you see
I'm not well

Tell all your friends
We're not selling out
We're just getting old
Tell all your friends
We're not selling out
We're just getting old

Can't you tell
I'm not me
Can't you see
I'm not well
Can't you tell
I'm not me
Can't you see
I'm not well
Tell all your friends
We're not selling out
We're just getting old
Track Name: Head
I've been hearing doorbells
They get me out of bed
But no one’s on the stairwell
It's all just in my head
And I think every thought twice
Forgetting what I've said
Why can't I get a thought right
It's all just in my head

I worry 'bout the future
I worry 'bout the past
I worry 'bout the present
And how long it will last
And I awake from nightmares
Too horrid to describe
It takes a couple minutes
To remember I'm alive

Sometimes I feel important
Sometimes I feel so small
And sometimes I feel nothing
I like that best of all
I've got my tiny bass amp
I've got my black guitar
I've got my microphone stand
That's all I need so far

I'm going to make some money
So I can buy a car
I'm going to be a hero
I'm going to be a star
I listen to the voice talk
Just floating in the air
And sometimes I don't listen
But it is always there

I wonder about heaven
And after I am dead
I wonder if the whole world
Is all just in my head

'Cause I've been hearing doorbells
They get me out of bed
But no one’s on the stairwell
It's all just in my head
No one’s on the stairwell
It's all just in my head
Track Name: Brown Acid
It was me
I took the brown acid
I can see
Now everything's placid
Freaky feast
And I should have fasted
Now I'm free
So don't mourn my passing

Now I float
I will never come home
My dreamboat
Will eternally roam
A zygote
All cocooned in sea foam
All she wrote
One more damaged chromosome

It was me
I took the brown acid
Sanity
Look how long it lasted
Joke's on me
I'm totally twisted
It's my party
Yet somehow I missed it

Now I float
I will never come home
My dreamboat
Will eternally roam
A zygote
All cocooned in sea foam
All she wrote
One more damaged chromosome
Track Name: Failure
I'd hate to be a winner
'Cause there'd be so much to lose
And I hope I don't get better
What would happen to my muse
But I’ll never be a failure
'Cause I set my sights so lowly
But is the water rising
Or am I just sinking slowly

Failure (failure) (failure)
Failure (failure) (failure)
Failure (failure) (failure)
Failure (failure) (failure)

I've always been a fighter
But there's always been a fight
Sometimes I get the feeling
That I'm floating towards the light
But I’ll never be a failure
'Cause I set my sights so lowly
But is the water rising
Or am I just sinking slowly

Failure (failure) (failure)
Failure (failure) (failure)
Failure (failure) (failure)
Failure (failure) (failure)

It seems everything I build up
Gets hammered down again
And I always end up nowhere
With everything to gain
But I’ll never be a failure
'Cause I set my sights so lowly
But is the water rising
Or am I just sinking slowly
Track Name: Evolution
Sometimes I'm an altruist
Idealist
An optimist
Sometimes I'm a nihilist
A pragmatist
A pessimist
I get no guidance from my dreams
But I know life isn't what it seems

No one knows the reason for the pain
Unless it's evolution
And I may never be the same
It must be evolution

So I learn to live with it
To cope with it
To try with it
And someday I may fail with it
Lose hope with it
And die with it
I get no comfort from my dreams
But I know life isn't what it seems

No one knows the reason for the pain
Unless it's evolution
And I may never be the same
It must be evolution

No one knows the reason for the pain
Unless it's evolution
And I may never be the same
It must be evolution

I only hope to make a stand
To be the strongest broken man
From where life comes to where it goes
What that means to you who knows

It's evolution
It's evolution
Track Name: Dead
We're already dead
And we're living a memory
Free will's an illusion
We all dance in synchrony

Reliving our pain
Again and again
And again and again
Until nothing remains
Just needles and pins
Reweaving the tapestry

We're already dead
And we're living a memory
Free will's an illusion
We all dance in synchrony

Reliving our pain
Again and again
And again and again
Until nothing remains
Just needles and pins
Reweaving the tapestry
Living a memory
Track Name: Alive
One and one is one
And one is all and all is one
One and one is one
And one is all and all is one
One and one is one
And one is all and all is one
One and one is one
And one is all and all is one

You and I
Have always been alive
Earth and sky
Have always been alive
You and I
Were destined to arise
From the earth
Upward to the skies

One and one is one
And one is all and all is one
One and one is one
And one is all and all is one
One and one is one
And one is all and all is one
One and one is one
And one is all and all is one

You and I
Have always been alive
Earth and sky
Have always been alive
You and I
Were destined to arise
From the earth
Upward to the skies

One and one is one
And one is all and all is one
One and one is one
And one is all and all is one
One and one is one
And one is all and all is one
One and one is one
And one is all and all is one
Track Name: The End
Was there nothing good when
you were young
Has the taste now vanished
from your tongue
Has the wind been driven from your lung
Has your spring now totally unsprung
Are your strings now vitally unstrung
Have your final hangmen all been hung
You were once your mother's favorite son
Now you stare down the barrel of a gun
With your war left tragically unwon

Tonight the end has come
Your song is sung
Your race is run
You never got the pun
You were outdone
By everyone
You tried to grasp the sun
But came undone
Now you're but one

Was there nothing good when
you were young
Has the taste now vanished
from your tongue
Has the wind been driven from your lung
Has your spring now totally unsprung
Are your strings now vitally unstrung
Have your final hangmen all been hung
You were once your mother's favorite son
Now you stare down the barrel of a gun
With your war left tragically unwon
Track Name: You
I don't mean to bother
I don't mind if you don't
Have the time
It's alright
But there's not another
Who could tell me that it will
All be fine
So I can sleep tonight

I don't know how to say this
But I've got to tell you
You're the reason that I even try
I don't know how to say this
But I've got to tell you
You're the reason that I'm still alive

So if I call to often
Understand you're where my
Tether’s tied
So I don't fly
And if I just stop calling
Call me up to see if
I'm alright
I might not be alright

I don't know how to say this
But I've got to tell you
You're the reason that I even try
I don't know how to say this
But I've got to tell you
You're the reason that I'm still alive
