Track Name: Eggs
Stop grasping at straws, boy.
You're too old for that.
You are tearing out your stuffing.
You're too old for all this wavering.
Which way is the right way?
And how now, for the banners?
Creeps out like a time bombed square.
Take a trip for the truth, boy.
You're not too young for that.
Stop the news and fascism.
High enough for revelation. 
Which way is the right way?
And how now, for the banners?
Creeps out like a time bombed square.
Track Name: Hug from a Robot
Stay with me.
I looked for my myths and they were gone.
Oh just kids
selling clothes
they're so sad and lonely.
Where are the mountains and oceans right now?
Need a warm hug
from a robot.
So I can start.
Stay with me.
Track Name: Touch the Lion
Do you hear what they say?
You could win an endless holiday.
The sky is gonna catch on fire.
All we need is one match.
Touch the Lion.
Energize your Spirit. 
Don't you wanna grab at everyone.
With the rioting, who will notice?
Track Name: Time to Go
When it's time to go, it's time.
You can pitch a tent anywhere you like.
Won't you sail me down
to the fields.
Won't you take me where
I can get through this.
I'm not gonna rush anyone.
Impatience is the reason I mess up.
When it's time to go, it's time.
Track Name: Two Headed Girl
Lost among the eggs
kid who likes to climb around.
While looking for her legs,
she sees a stoney shelf to stare from.
Quiet little dots
 from up top they feel so cold.
A diagram spill
she watches where the marbles roll.
You, you make it all so hard.
We're like magnets.
Skewed.
Drag me down.
Ask for a number.
Two head girl
sleeps in the yard.
You talk of emotion.
Bad vibes.
Track Name: Precious Blood
Around the corner from the capital,
there is a festival with no show.
Beating and pulsing like an organ,
shaking and shifting like a runaway tram.
We still are waiting for something big.
And I feel a change.
There's beauty here again.
Sitting on rocks like a ghost.
Without you I might just implode.
There's beauty here again.
Precious Blood.
Precious blood like you.
Left with some pieces of a dream and sounds.
Placed on a stage and in front of a crowd.
Track Name: Haunted Factory
Cranked my own rope
to make this easy.
Lost every name.
When one dream breaks down,
we all feel it.
Finally I'm changed.
Moving to a haunted factory
where I can have everything I need.
All the people think and feel like me,
where I can relearn how to breathe.
Sold my face the other day.
I don't need it anyway.
Gave out all my fears to the news.
They know what to better do with them.
Track Name: This Town
It's alive.  Do you notice it?
A beautiful skeleton just needs flesh.
If you turn away, it only grows
and moves in shocks and sounds. 
It will eat the young.
Do you see as it shoots around?
Fills the space.
Jumps around the crowd.
Let it overwhelm.
You're almost there.
Then, shake, shake, shake.
Track Name: Monsters Sleeping
It's alive.  Do you notice it?
A beautiful skeleton just needs flesh.
If you turn away, it only grows
and moves in shocks and sounds. 
It will eat the young.
Do you see as it shoots around?
Fills the space.
Jumps around the crowd.
Let it overwhelm.
You're almost there.
Then, shake, shake, shake.
Track Name: Carnie Girl
Oh darling, I see stripes
when you think I am sleeping.
Float and float
on an endless highway.
I ate that cannibal stereo
before it stole my heart.
Oh darling, I like change too.
That's why we'll sleep by the road.
Float and float
on an endless highway.
I ate that cannibal stereo
before it stole my heart.
Track Name: Chromatic Fantasy
We spent years on track
now it's the end of line.
Do what you can.
Make the right choice this time.
We're tired of being lost.
It's time to stand up now.
We're tired of being lost.
It's time to attack.
Get the shell
off your back.
You are already born.
I know it's so hard.
They're a million more strong.
You've got a hole in your heart
and fog in your mind
but still it's time.
Get the shell
off your back.
You are already born.
Get the shell
off your back.
