Can I borrow some time?
Can you lend me some money?
Can you donate a dime?
Can you send out a postcard?
Pay the postage back home?
Can you lend me your cell phone?
So I'm not all alone.

I can see you've managed your time
A decent job from 9 to 5
A working stiff pays my salary
my labor cost is the price of asking

Can I borrow some time?
Can you lend me some money?
Can you donate a dime?
Can you send out a postcard?
Pay the postage back home?
Can you lend me your cell phone?
So I'm not all alone.
Track Name: Memories Subtracted
Memory Subtracted

I can tell, I can tell when you yell
At the past that you're erasing
Rings a bell, rings a bell, in a well
With memories you're filling

Your memories subtracting
Memories subtracting

Piece of mind, peace of mind
no rewind-ing things you have forgotten
All in time, fall in time 
its remind-ing you of whats important

I can tell, I can tell when you yell
At the past that you're erasing
Rings a bell, rings a bell, in a well
With memories you're filling

Your memories subtracting
Memories subtracting


Your memories subtracting
Memories subtracting

Thoughts are multiplying
One in one out ten dying
Thoughts are multiplying
One in one out ten dying

Memories your memories
Memories your memories
Memories your memories
Your memories been subtracted
Track Name: A Shape of Mind (Dear, Jennifer)
A Shape of Mind (Dear, Jennifer)

Pardon me I'm going crazy part of me was lost now I subside
I don't know how to take it, chase it. For all I know is well you're in my mind
I lost my taste I gained a sentence trapped inside a void, her void in time
Sculpted by her parting lecture longing just for one more, one more smile

Well, I won't let go
I can't let go
In fact you will grow in my, my, mind

I'll talk about you
Sing about you
Immortalize your name dear, Jennifer I learned

How can you be gone forever? Does forever have a service line?
Your living brightly tucked within me and gracefully became A Shape of Mind

Jennifer I,

Well, I won't let go
I can't let go
In fact you will grow in my, my, mind

I'll talk about you
Sing about you
Immortalize your name dear, Jennifer I learned

A Shape of Mind x3

Our moonlit sky polluted
A world bound and convoluted
We can all
Start by saying it's me

My room reeks of pollution
And I'm my own solution
Fear of change
Remain the same as always

No more will I
No more will I

Waste of life and water
No, no.
Too much trash to bother
No, no.
Remain the same as always
No, no.

No more will I
No more will I

Might be fake to see
Well, it's home to me

Know!

Our moonlit sky polluted. Know!
A world bound and convoluted. Know!
We can all. Know!
Remain the same as always. No!

No, no.
Track Name: The Hell You Know
The Hell You Know

Once I played a fool who acts on nothing
From my couch I screamed my point of view
Followed my dreams only when sleeping 
Then I placed the blame on you 
Took a shot of fear with lies I chased it 
Circles round' my own race track 
Criss-crossed threads weave loops of friction 
It tied this thought 

"Boy, I know"

Once I played a clown with belittled humor 
I can't face my enemies  
Took a drag of something on a sunrise 
Watched the ground crawl under me
One motion fixed fear and emotion 
"You'd be blind to see" 
Now I understand just how life caves in 
It danced with me 

"I know, I know, I know, I know 
The hell you know"

Once I played a man who I'm still playing
Who do you think you're lying to? 
A fear of love making you unhappy? 
Are you providing your worth too? 
Below the oceans above the skyline 
Or someone to come home to?
Music, junkie a ballerina 
All in time.  

"I know, I know, I know, I know 
The hell you know" 

Once I played a game and it almost claimed me
"Wander far inside our minds"
Are we one thought that tangles matter? 
"Dancing in eternity"
Have you flown with birds over all the roof tops? 
Maybe just the land and sea 
Is there a god who waits in heaven,
or is hell internally? 

"Boy, I know"
Have you flown with birds over all the rooftops?
The hell you know
"Boy, I know"
Is there a god who waits in heaven?
The hell you know
I.

Track Name: Digital Generation
Digital Generation

Breed a dream baby scrapped his toys for shelter
Captured in a mono-light
Boy who claimed a man bought his situation
He can't even read or write

No mobile service divided minds are losing reception
Wifi's fading your devised thoughts lack comprehension

I see the worry in your eyes
when the human race all realized

A Digital Generation
Digital Generation

I can find a wife or buy a hooker
all in one website
Punch the credit card where the sun won't stick it
Logged by the FBI
So track me, scan him and violate her
Via-satellite
What ever happened to civil rights, pal?
You launched them into cyberspace?

No mobile service divided minds are losing reception
Wifi's fading devised thoughts lack comprehension

I see the worry in you eyes
when the human race all realized

A Digital Generation
A Digital Generation

Stuck in traffic while signed in debt
Lotto dreamers failed their dreams I'd bet
Unemployed and expecting pay
Left his kids the bills when he ran away
Day care daddy turned "This many!" today
April's fool so he cried till' may
Track Name: Fin
Fin

You bide all my time coffee breaks, great with wine
After sex, for breakfast rain or shine you will be mine

Reeks of death on my breath pollute my lungs one regret
Addicts lie, addicts try, addicts just can't say goodbye

Strayed in your ways, hope is not exhausted
Take care, fair well, I can't say goodbye

Drag to cope, mental moat ties the rope that gives hope
Day by day, week by week, month by month through years to keep

I'll be strong, I'll hold on, I'll hold on, I'll hold on
In my head, on my mind always there till' next time

Strayed in your ways, hope is not exhausted
Take care, fair well, I can't say goodbye

Take care, goodbye
Take care, fair well.

Strayed in your ways, hope is not exhausted
Take care, fair well, I can't say goodbye
Track Name: Any Bidders??
Any Bidders?

I know you see them as I see
Fickle liars crossed fingers
A lack of care is what they love
Turnabout amongst the muzzled

Fractured trust I need too heal
The cast I got supports my habits
Beginnings always face the ends
What happens if we tie them?

Because I can't do this on my own
My own, my own
I'd surrender
Past in debt my life is rent to own
To own, to own
Any bidders??


A broken verse that you dreamt of
The major lift was pentatonic
You wrote it first but no one cared
Your handwork left empty handed


I won't quit, I won't give up
I'll find more when you abandon
Crowed stage faced the empty bar
At least we made you hear this!

Because I can't do this on my own
My own, my own
I'd surrender
Past in debt my life is rent to own
To own, to own
Any bidders??

Because I can't do this on my own
I'd surrender
Past in debt my life is rent to own
Any bidders?? Fight!
Track Name: And All The World
And All The World

Trick the pawns with words and motives that show you smile and bow
We won't live for a tomorrow what ever fix is now
The fear you cast is not projected, it's interrupted
The grin you fake it has suggested their only in your head

They and all the world x4

I feel a sense it floats around me like everybody knows
She will lie and he will spread it has fate holds a pose
I think, I guess I understand it. Well, I suppose
That somehow we're all cemented like you and all the world

You and all the world

Don't you feel you need a moment just to find some proof?
Your future plans are built by structures that we claim is truth
Architects design the clocks that spiral in through fate
What makes now turn, turn forever? Forevers running late

Now and all the world
I am you're mine.

Now and all the world
You are my time

Now and all the world
I'm in your head

Now and all the world
I am you said
I am you said
I am.

Now and all the world
I am you said
Now and all the world
I am you said
Now and all the world
I am.

Now and all the world
I am you said,
Now and all the world
I am you said
Now and all the world
I am you said
Now and all the world
I am the world.
Track Name: I Don't Believe It
I Don't Believe It

Dear, Reality.
You're just as fake as me
But you can't give a damn
You only turn your hands around
You can't make a sound
Circles up and down, around, around.

I can't see you, I don't believe it
I can't feel you, I don't believe it
I can't touch you, I don't believe it
If you spoke too, would I believe it?

I'm on this chessboard
Watching kings kill kings
Knights they claimed the rooks
Bishops framed the nights we took
Queens assembly lines
Command us pawns to die

I can't see you, I don't believe it
I can't feel you, I don't believe it
I can't touch you, I don't believe it
If you spoke too, would I believe it?
Track Name: See It My Own Way
See It My Own Way

I walk my
I talk my
I see my
see it my own way
I write the play

Act your lines to from a person, personally we're acted personalities
"who's personal?"
Depart from false departure breath or blink you never think what you don't know
"we'll never know until we're dead"

I walk my
I talk my
I see my
See it my own way
I write the play, know, know.

Intend to please the wicked when the saints are all in line to serve the man
"we serve a man"
Digest the advertisements we only think, only what we demand
"what we demand"
I am you and you are me divided into fabric in every little grain of sand
think your death we're un-united burned or buried you'll end up underneath the land
"so lend your hand"

I walk my
I talk my
I see my
see it my own way
I write the play!

Play, play, play, now!

I walk, I see, my way x4
See it my own way

I walk my
I talk my
I see my
see it my own way
I write the play, know, know.

I walk, I see, my way x3
I walk, I see.

Can we believe with no faith?
Because I fell now, I fell away from god
And you're ashamed of my thoughts
You believe my soul can be saved
Judge my life, attend your church
Pardon you, belittle me.

I live by, by your. By your lies.
Oh, dear god. I don't believe.

Here you fake my puppeteer
Take his place inside my sky
We know that you're not my judge
You're so sure you know this life

Rise, I am here, no.
Bow your head, before your paper god?

I live by, by your. By your lies.
Oh, dear god. I don't believe

I live by, by your. By your lies.
Oh, dear god. I don't………Need
