Alaska Lyrics

(8)
Submitted by level Zyklus
1. All Bodies (6:14)
We all create this imagery. We all increase this lunacy.
Floating, melting...
Open sores for exploration... exploding worlds... surrounding imaginations?..
This will conclude our story... the first date of existence seems to be changing...
We are their property, we are their slaves... we surround all bodies... focus-time stands still.
We are their property, we are their slaves... we surround all bodies... focus-time stands still.

Keeper of the stars, I hope to never find..
We are just mortal souls left to die.
We all create this imagery.
We all increase this lunacy.
We all increase this lunacy.
-All Bodies
-Contortion

(The Discovery)
Ego controlled killing...
The tables have turned..
Obviously a poor creature of existence--
We die one by one.. we overlooked our control... fire swarming, engulfing, transforming...
Human restoration incomplete... the end.

(The Landing)
This beautiful scenario can't last forever... we must go see the conclusion...
Starting a new species, classifying nothing... life grows with trees on high...
Nature create this mechanical lust...
Nature form this from fed trust...
Cancellation...
Motivation... creativity--
We will soon live in peace...
We will soon die in peace.
-All Bodies
-Contortion
2. Alaska (4:02)
The road is dry... I'm fucking delirious right now...
Life goes on... glorious evening of nodding and jump starts...
I need to make a personal dance party. The brain works very weird at this hour...
Not the best time for lyrics I suppose...
Keep writing... keep dreaming...
Keep writing... keep dreaming...
Keep writing... keep dreaming.

Nope, can't be awake and dream, drifting in and out, in and out...

Eye motions... in out... heat lightning,
Scares us both... the only two people awake at this fucking hour...
I won't remember this in the morning...
At least I wrote this all down... please pick the right song...
The one that keeps the eyes wide...
Creepy... creepy... creepy...
Yes, creepy...
The idea of control...
Controlling death with alertness...
When is the fucking sun coming up...
The idea of control...
Yes, creepy...
Controlling death with alertness...
Controlling death with alertness.

Then it all changes, same scenery but sun involved...
Shouldn't be much different...
Alaska, Alaska. Then it all changes, same scenery but sun involved...
Shouldn't be much different...
Alaska, Alaska... the brain works very weird at this hour...
The brain works very weird at this hour...
The brain works very weird at this hour.

Tick tock tick tock... the rain is pouring now...
Wide-awake... at least for now... nature can be the death of me...
A thing we'll never overcome... in out in out.
3. Croakies and Boatshoes (2:24)
Croakies. Boatshoes... Collars up. Daddy's money increased my social status...
"Dang, my loafer got smudged"
We are the suburban elite.
"Hey where y'all wanna meet?"

I've got something to fucking prove man, I've really gotten something to prove.
Dude... Brah... let's go party tonight...
Maybe start another goddamn fight...
But it's all right... my coach knows the sheriff.

Don't stare...

At my car.
At my shirt.
At my girl.
4. Selkies: The Endless Obsession (7:25)
(Slip into something more comforatble... proceed into space)

Innocent individuals... concerned about nothing but happiness...
Progress becomes easy due to this social situation.
Unfortunate turn of events... collapse this idea of the childish thought.

No judgment [x4]
No judgement towards one another...
No judgment towards one another,
No social status to compare...
All as one...
Market this change...
Exploit the idea of this innocence...
Exploit this idea of this innocent...
Goddamn television god... corrupt me...
Goddamn television god... corrupt me...
Separate us... separate us... separate us... separate us...
Groups of difference seems to comfort what we once didn't think of...
This show was in their head for years...
Enjoy this life of wonder and imagination...
For it will be torn down.

You will be torn down...
Time to hate, kill, fight, conquer...
Time to hate, kill, fight, conquer...
This is human life at it's best...
We'll televise this event...
You can learn how to live, breathe...
And finally die.

The sweet relief is a must [x4]
We can speak obession... we can love the endless.
5. Breathe In, Breathe Out (0:55)
6. Roboturner (7:07)
Crush us. Over and over again...
The years have come to this--an improper art form.
Faking our own thoughts and sounds...
Robots crush... death of human-music.

Bright lights fill the sky...
Track us through our fields of money...
The old days seem shit and primitive...
Abduction... control... you write for me. Oh, master...

Master of the machines...
Take this shit and make it gold. Make my face sparkle with fame...
Master of the machines...
Fuck them hard and neglect their thoughts...
They will never see us coming...

No more human voice...
No more human actions...
Imperfect fucks stand in the dark.

Crush us. Over and over again...
The years have come to this--an improper art form.
Faking our own thoughts and sounds...
Robots crush...
Death of human-music.

Counteract this idea of control...
Human emotion can only produce the
Thoughtful...
Finally discovering the idea of perfect harmony...
This is the day we finally make beautiful notes again...
But we will never realize...
A situation so far dead...
Make this a war...
Blood fills the sky...
Drop the deadly dive-bomb...
The end of this outside life.

We will find art again.
7. Backwards Marathon (8:29)
The early loves seems to become jaded...
I'm never expecting this...
Glance towards the mirror,
Imagination towards the stars...
The endless desire for my one and only true love...
This will never change I predict...
But I do get tired...
If only they knew what push we have given...
For this music...
This happiness that keeps us all sane...
Cold nights seem to force questions, not wanting to accept these thoughts...
I have worked and will keep working...
To keep the tradition of my one true motive in life...
Music...
My only love...
Once building drum boxes and pretending to be the artist...
I guess I'm here but it feels weird...
So weird...
To know how weird all this can be...
It seems to never work out like I planned...
Like we planned.

One day it will come together...
First place desire in the backwards marathon...
That's all we can ask for...

It's raining...
It's raining...
It's raining...
It's raining...
When the sun comes up, it's still raining.
Slowly grow...
Weeds turn into...
Smiling trance...
Never mentioned.

The early love seems to become jaded...
I'm never expecting this...
Dance for the mirror,
Imagination towards the stars...
The endless desire for my one and only true love...
Dreams won't let go...
Thoughts will not change...
Can't watch it fly away...
8. Medicine Wheel (4:18)
9. The Primer (4:48)
Prescribe me: corrupt me...
Put your guns in my hands...
In the hands of the young...
Let's kill...
Let's die...
We're all equal tonight...

Prescribe me: I don't want to feel what is happening.
I don't want to know what I see, please don't let me cope alone, joystick revolution move me.
It's all a dream...
Redneck lord, you still soothe me...
Behind your black tie revolution, this is just a party...

Prescribe me: become the whore...
Please drug the young...
Follow the gods, for sex and greed bring the smiles...
The rich, sexy smiles that blow the minds of every goddamn male pig out there...
We all just want to fuck...
What is love, the idea of love...
Corpse play, traditional/marriage: we don't have to take this serious...
Have you seen the cities... have you seen the images...

We have to be you.

2005 welcome to perfection...
Prescribe me, indulge me...
You have won.
10. Autodidact (5:32)
(begin)
The freethinking brain can finally travel. Take the radio waves and stew up that imagination...
I worry too much...
Boredom gets to me...
Pussy...
Yes they call me this...
The masters of the ocean churn down in my mind...
Calling me only what I feel at times...
I just want to be loved and liked by everyone...
Shining down on my everymove...
Impossible thoughts...
Stay on this cruise...
Never go back, relaxation calms these metal nerves...
Need to just let go and become a giant...
Forcing the improvement of our musical system...
One can't do such, especially with such
Lack of confidence...
Maybe they see it...
Maybe they frown upon this face...
Time...
I keep drifting away...
I look forward to these days physically, but mentally they can become very tiring...
Why worry...
Personal happiness should be all that matters...
(I feel this most of the time) days like today mordecai flies down on this ship
And stares me in the eyes (every time, can't change)
Maybe I should just be this bedroom performer I keep hearing of...
Yes I can myself this...
Control...
Control me...
Sit back now...
Piss it all away...
Loser losing lost (scene)
