1. In the Clouds (6:52)
Take a trip with me to a distant place
A world unknown to the imagination

You spread your wings
And you look above
Your mind forgets
The cotton fields
Bring fascination

Fly high in the sky
Up in the clouds

You’re high above
Where the mind’s at peace
The answer’s clear
The heavenlies bring inspiration

Fly high in the sky
Fly high in the sky
Fly high in the sky
Up in the clouds

A world unknown to the imagination

Fly high in the sky
Fly high in the sky
Fly high in the sky
Fly high in the sky
Up in the clouds
2. Internal Masquerade (3:18)
I’m your fear from deep inside
I’m the hate that you can’t hide
I’m the demons that comprise your very soul
I’m the rose amongst the thorns
I’m the angel with the horns
I’m the deeper darker side of you

Scream – Bleed – Die
Just throw it!
Breathe – Deep – Alive
Just throw it away!

Internal masquerade
Eternal disarray
It’s eating up my heart today
Internal masquerade
As we drown in the decay
It’s eating up my heart today

I’m the warning that you heed
I’m the lie that you believe
I’m the monster you unleash in your very soul
I’m the fire in your eyes
I’m the hope that slowly dies
I’m the deeper darker side of you

Scream – Bleed – Die
Just throw it!
Breathe – Deep – Alive
Just throw it away!

Internal masquerade
Eternal disarray
It’s eating up my heart today
Internal masquerade
As we drown in the decay
It’s eating up my heart today

Scream – Bleed – Die
Just throw it!
Breathe – Deep – Alive
Just throw it away!

Internal masquerade
Eternal disarray
It’s eating up my heart today
Internal masquerade
As we drown in the decay
It’s eating up my heart today
3. Blood in My Eyes (3:40)
It’s one of those things you can’t get out of your head

I spent today
Another day
Hoping for a better day
Another day
A better day
Hoping for another day

Fight!
Fighting the same fight
Fight!
Losing the same fight

Drowning in the rain of my bloodshot eyes
From the things I despise
Blinded by the light in the deep blue sky
And the blood in my eyes

It’s one of those things you can’t get out of your head

Futility
Crushing me
Praying for stability
Disunity
Surrounding me
Numbing and confounding me

Fight!
Fighting the same fight
Fight!
Losing the same fight

Drowning in the rain of my bloodshot eyes
From the things I despise
Blinded by the light in the deep blue sky
And the blood in my eyes

(x3) Drowning in the rain of my bloodshot eyes
Blinded by the light in the deep blue sky

And the blood in my eyes
4. Next Joke (4:15)
All right!

If I believe
In something hard enough
Feel it deep within
Like it was meant to be
Seal it on my heart
And blocked out all the negativity

The sky is the limit
When you put your mind to it
You can be anything you want
Next joke!
When you wish on a star
You can have anything
You can have anything you want
Next joke!

I’ve always been
A stranger in my skin
Like someone locked me in
To a deal I can’t fulfill
There’s no way I can fail
If I never give in to their will

(x2) The sky is the limit
When you put your mind to it
You can be anything you want
Next joke!
When you wish on a star
You can have anything
You can have anything you want
Next joke!
You can go very far
When you reach for the stars
You can have anything you want
Next joke!
Nothing can stop you now
You can have anything
You can have anything you want
Next joke!

Next joke!
5. Zombies (4:12)
OHHHHHHH, here they come!

Zombies!
Zombie attack!
Zombies!

No life in their eyes, always terrified
At the end of time, social genocide
And you can’t decide where to run and hide
No drug left that you haven’t tried

Fighting zombies day and night
And one day you caught my eye
Together we’ll survive
Even for just one night

It all makes sense to me now
That I would find the perfect one
It all makes sense to me
That I would find you
On the last day of the world

Zombies!
Zombie attack!
Zombies!

Walking to the beat of technology
Bowing the knee to the powers that be
It seems society has a bad disease
Apocalyptical psychology

Fighting zombies day and night
And one day you caught my eye
Together we’ll survive
Even for just one night

It all makes sense to me now
That I would find the perfect one
It all makes sense to me
That I would find you
On the last day of the world

A murderous horde of zombies
You’re in a death battle now

They’re everywhere!
We live in fear!
They’re everywhere!
The end is near!

Zombies!
Zombie attack!

Together we’ll survive
Even for just one night

It all makes sense to me now
That I would find the perfect one
It all makes sense to me
That I would find you
On the last day of the world

ZOMBIES!!!
6. Drama (4:50)
My mama said
To leave a sleeping dog alone
Don’t feed the bears
They need a place to call their own

No way to live
Walking on eggshells all around
Always on guard
Tiptoe through minefields full of doubt

You ask me why
Can’t I see things your way?
The curtain opens wide

Drama
Set the stage for your attack
Drama
Bracing for the final act
I just don’t want to see you and your
Drama

If you are wise
Don’t make a snake your closest friend
A bad idea
He’ll always bite you in the end

Like OCD
Keeping on file my every word
For later use
In fighting wars subjective truth

You ask me why
Can’t I see things your way?
The curtain opens wide

Drama
Set the stage for your attack
Drama
Bracing for the final act
I just don’t want to see you and your
Drama

The curtain opens wide

Drama
Set the stage for your attack
Drama
Bracing for the final act
I just don’t want to see it
I don’t need a private screening
The curtain’s coming down on all your
Drama
7. Amisarewas (6:16)
In the world we live
In the time
In an era
In between birth and death
We strive
We believe
But wondering

Where is the treasury
Of knowledge?
Of reason?
Of life and ideas?
Some start in the now
Rejecting the past
Believing unshakably in things that don’t last
In things that don’t last

Am is are was
All that has been done
Be been being
All that’s yet to come
Am is are was
All that has been done
Be been being
All that’s yet to come
Thy will be done

Sum of all knowledge
Source of all being
In nature refined
The one and many
The votive divine
From beginning benign
Eternal design
So high and sublime

Am is are was
All that has been done
Be been being
All that’s yet to come
Am is are was
All that has been done
Be been being
All that’s yet to come
Thy will be done

We don’t know why
We don’t know why

Am is are was
All that has been done
Be been being
All that’s yet to come
Am is are was
All that has been done
Be been being
All that’s yet to come
Thy will be done
Thy will be done
8. Hate Me (3:11)
I’m just walking down the street
Trying to make my way in the world
Through crowds of vagrants pissing themselves
Talking to themselves
And they’re judging me with their eyes
Well, you don’t know me!!!

Chocolate covered Christians passing by
Dingy stained glass window sacrifice
Paralyzed saccharin smiles, slits for eyes
Turning heads, closing eyes
But I will deny
I will deny you

Come on and hate me
Come on and hate me, come on hate me
Come on and hate me
Come on and hate me, get in line!

Old world dead and new world closing in
Enlightened now we don’t believe in sin
Right/wrong, right/left, left behind
Legislate, indoctrinate
But I will defy
I will defy you

(x2) Come on and hate me
Come on and hate me, come on hate me
Come on and hate me
Come on and hate me, get in line!

Narcissistic face of arrogance
Lacerated heart of innocence
Oh what fresh hell is this I’m living in?
Overtone overthrown
But I will begin
I will begin

Come on and hate me
Come on and hate me, come on hate me
Come on and hate me
Come on and hate me, get in line!

Come on and hate me
Come on and hate me, come on hate me
Come on and hate me
Come on and hate me, get in, stand in, wait in line!
9. Losing Ourselves (4:12)
When I was twelve it was all fun
All fun and games
All for the thrill, the usual drill
That’s what it became

Mama says she can’t see my eyes
Mama says that I don’t look right
Mama asks me if I’m all right
See the doctor for some therapy
Says that this will get the best of me
Says the clinic is the place to be

It’s only time and chance
It’s only circumstance

Blaming me, blaming you
And we’re losing ourselves
Blood on me, blood on you
And we’re losing ourselves

As life rolled on, bored of it all
In need of escape
Habitually, reality
Was losing its shape

Family says I gotta give it up
Friends say I gotta drop the stuff
I can never seem to get enough
Hey buddy, can you spare some time
Hey buddy, can you spare a dime?
Hey buddy, can you get me high?

It’s only time and chance
It’s only circumstance

Blaming me, blaming you
And we’re losing ourselves
Blood on me, blood on you
And we’re losing ourselves

No way to cope
And we’re losing ourselves
Don’t give up hope
While we’re losing ourselves

It’s only circumstance

Blaming me, blaming you
And we’re losing ourselves
Blood on me, blood on you
And we’re losing ourselves

No way to cope
And we’re losing ourselves
Don’t give up hope
While we’re losing ourselves
10. Agenda (4:31)
Can I refuse the things you choose
On a baseless truth?
Will your judgment always stand?
Can I make up my mind?
Or must I comply?
The hive has stated its demands

From where I sit
I just don’t fit
In the agenda
If you’re like me
Fight to be free
Of the agenda

It’s political, undeniable
We’re equally miserable
Denominate to lowest math
It’s unnatural
The individual
Bows to mob rule of the land

From where I sit
I just don’t fit
In the agenda
If you’re like me
Fight to be free
Of the agenda

Your plans unfold
And the future sold
Like days of old
‘till your time comes to an end

(x2) From where I sit
I just don’t fit
In the agenda
If you’re like me
Fight to be free
Of the agenda
11. Long Way Back to the Moon (5:45)
Floating weightless as I look up to the sky
Trying to remember how I used to fly
My head is spinnin’ and I need to go back home
To where I used to live
Because I’m tired and I’m sick of this

Stress! Struggle!
Crashing bubble!
Falling faster
But now I know

It’s a long way back to the moon
Waiting for contact very soon
It’s been a long, long time
Since I had a ranch on Mars
It’s a long way back to the moon

The pressure’s building and my head is in the clouds
Try to breathe it in, but my breath is running out
The world is spinnin’ and I need to go back home
To where I used to live
Because I’m tired and I’m sick of this

Stress! Struggle!
Crashing bubble!
Falling faster
But now I know

It’s a long way back to the moon
Waiting for contact very soon
It’s been a long, long time
Since I had a ranch on Mars
It’s a long way back to the moon

And now I know
And now I know
And now I know

(x2) It’s a long way back to the moon
Waiting for contact very soon
It’s been a long, long time
Since I had a ranch on Mars
It’s a long way back to the moon

My head is spinnin’ and I need to go back
12. Believing the Hype (4:05)
Yeah, yeah, yeah
Now you’re a sucker believing the hype, alright!

Tell your friends
It’s happening again
They’re the greatest band you’ve never heard
So obscure
When they come to your town
No one ever seems to get the word

So underrated, you’re overrated, yeah!
Now you’re a sucker believing the hype
So underrated, you’re overrated, yeah!
Now you’re a sucker believing the hype, yeah!
Now you’re a sucker believing the hype, alright!

What a shame
They should’ve been so huge
Where’s the recognition they deserve?
Missed the boat
Their genius overlooked
Apparently the masses aren’t concerned

So underrated, you’re overrated, yeah!
Now you’re a sucker believing the hype
So underrated, you’re overrated, yeah!
Now you’re a sucker believing the hype, yeah!
Now you’re a sucker believing the hype, alright!

It’s a total freakfest fantasy
When you’re gonna be the next big thing
But you wake up and it’s all a dream
Or a crime…nevermind

Time off work
To lay some basic tracks
It all comes back like they’re all seasoned pros!
Crowdfunding
Avoids the 9 to 5
The less they try, the more their legend grows

So underrated, you’re overrated, yeah!
Now you’re a sucker believing the hype
So underrated, you’re overrated, yeah!
Now you’re a sucker believing the hype, yeah!
Now you’re a sucker believing the hype
Now you’re a sucker believing the hype
13. Say Goodbye to Utopia (5:19)
Say goodbye to my utopia

They know what you want
But they want to hear you
Screaming in the streets

Giving up your freedom
Trading it for lies
Falling for solutions already supplied
Lifting up your fist
As if you will arise
The leader that you look to wears a new disguise

So get in line

Say goodbye to my utopia
Say goodbye to my brave new world
Say goodbye to my utopia
Say goodbye, say goodbye

You can feel it coming
The ground is moving
Underneath your feet

Collecting all the data
Connecting every dot
Removing any remnants of the life that you forgot
Proving all you want
Proving all you need
Liberty and freedom are a distant memory

So follow me

Say goodbye to my utopia
Say goodbye to my brave new world
Say goodbye to my utopia
Say goodbye!

(x2) We don’t want this
We don’t need this
We don’t like this
Give us what we deserve

We’ll set you free

Say goodbye to my utopia
Say goodbye to my brave new world
Say goodbye to my utopia
Say goodbye!
Say goodbye to my utopia
Say goodbye to my brave new world
Say goodbye to my utopia
Say goodbye, say goodbye, say goodbye

We don’t want this
