Megalomaniac

I hear you on the radio
You permeate my screen
Its' unkind but,
If I met you in a scissor fight
I'd cut off both your wings
On principle alone

Hey megalomaniac!
You're no Jesus!
Yeah, you're no fucking Elvis!
Wash your hands clean of yourself, baby
And step down, step down!

If I were your appendages
I'd hold open your eyes
So you'd see
That all of us are heaven sent
And there was never meant to be only one
To be only one

Hey megalomaniac!
You're no Jesus!
Yeah, you're no fucking Elvis!
Wash your hands clean of yourself, baby
And step down, step down!

You're no Jesus
You're not Elvis
You're no answer

Hey megalomaniac!
You're no Jesus!
Yeah, you're no fucking Elvis!
Wash your hands clean of yourself, baby
And step down, step down!

Agoraphobia

Two people touching lips
Hands on each other's hips
Nothing in else in the world but one another

The 42nd floor
On a distant shore
I wonder how we've strayed so far from this

Remember when we were
Just flesh and bone
You sir may have forgotten how good your world can be

So, put down your hollow tips
And kiss your lovers lips
And know that fate is what we make of it

Please end this, please end this
Before this ends us, ends us

I wanna stay inside
I wanna stay inside for good
I wanna stay inside
For good

I read the news today
And everything they say
Just makes me want to stay inside and wait

But the better part of me knows
That waiting in the throws
Is on par with reading with my eyes closed

"What Can I do?", you say
"It's just another day
In the life of apes with ego trips"

Put down your hollow tips
And kiss your lover's lips
And know that fate is what we make of it

Please end this, please end this
Before this ends us, ends us

I wanna stay inside
I wanna stay inside for good
I wanna stay inside
For good

I'm gonna stay inside
I'm gonna stay inside for good
I'm gonna stay inside
For Good

I wanna stay inside
I wanna stay inside for good
I wanna stay inside
Don't want to stay inside for good

Beware! Criminal

You crawl in bed, it's 3am
You smell of wine and cigarettes
A butterfly under the glass
You are beautiful
But you're not going anywhere

We do the same thing every night
I swear I've heard this song before
A swimmer who has seen a shark
I should really be more wary of the water

You came, you saw, you conquered
Everyone
And I'm left here guessing
Oh, what went wrong?
Yeah, I'm down
But not out, and far from done

Hey all! Beware criminal

A prism with an intellect
You throw your light selectivly
You stole my glow, a seasoned thief 
The blacks of my eyes are turning into opals

Today, I walk
There's nothing here left for me but empty promises
And the thought of all the things I'm never getting back

You came, you saw, you conquered
Everyone
And I'm left here guessing
What went wrong?
Yeah, I'm down
But not out, and far from done

Hey all! Beware criminal

Did you think I wouldn't notice?
Did you really think I wouldn't care?
Did you think I wouldn't notice?
Did you really think I wouldn't care?

You came, you saw, you conquered
And I'm left here bleeding
Oh, what went wrong?
Yeah, I'm down
But not out, and far from done

Hey all! Beware criminal

Priceless

The fact that you
You think you can
Speak to me
The way you do
Bleeds me to believe that you
Have never stepped out of the skin you live within

But when, and if
This day occurs
Your tongue, the taste
Will immitate a battery
The anti-equilibrium
Your stomach becomes the floor

The look on your face was priceless!
Yes, the look on your face was priceless!
That look, it was...

A light goes on
Upstairs, the attic is ablaze
This island isn't big enough for the both of us
So who will swim in eel infested oceans?

Kiss the sand goodbye
Because the tide is coming up and in
Yeah, water, water, water everywhere!
And every chance to sink!

The look on your face was priceless!
Yes, the look on your face was priceless!
That look, it was so priceless

It's an amalgamation
Of the things you aren't
The ways you wish you were
A split second
Percieving of the way you really look to everyone of them

I wish that you could get a glimpse
I wish that you could see because

The look on your face was priceless!
Yes, the look on your face was priceless!
That look, it was so priceless

Made For TV Movie

I heard a word from 'on high'
Glare like a light in the sky
It said, "quit blowing each other up"

Voicing so crystaline clear
Some thing's unclean in your ear
When only blood will fill your cup

Hello
I'm trying to focus, but my eyes decieve me
Focus
I'm witnessing history...repeating

It fell like a tear from my eye
Flying machine so up high
Well, there goes the neighborhood

A scene set to singe innocence
Upheave, unhinge, and pit against
Like every made for TV movie should

Hello
I'm trying to focus, but my eyes decieve me
Focus
I'm witnessing history...repeating

Focus. Focus. Focus. Focus.
Focus. Focus! Focus!! Focus!!!
(I can see now)

We are, we know, we see, we think for you!
The who, the what, the when, the where, the why!
We build your young, we built you too, we see you all!

Hello
I'm trying to focus, but my eyes decieve me
Focus
I'm witnessing history...repeating

Here In My Room

or, Pink Tractorbeam

This party is old and uninviting
Participants all in black and white
You enter in full blown technicolor
Nothing is the same after tonight

If the world would fall apart
In a fiction worthy wind
I wouldn't change a thing now that you're here
Yeah, love is a verb here in my room

You enter and close the door behind you
Now show me the world seen from the stars
If only the lights would dim a little
I'm weary of eyes upon my scars

If the world would fall apart
In a fiction worthy wind
I wouldn't change a thing now that you're here
Yeah, love is a verb here in my room

Pink tractor beam into your incision
Head spining as free as dervishs' whirl
I came here expecting next to nothing
So thank you for being that kind of girl


A Crow Left of the Murder
Unlearn me
Ditch what I read 
Behind what I heard

Look. Find. Free.
Yet! Do You get it yet?
Do You get it?!

From here on it's instinctual
Even straight roads meander
Every piece contains a map of it all!
It all!

Evidence
In the march of the ants
Pulse of the sea

Look. Find. Free.
Yet! Do You get it yet?
Do You get it?!

From here on it's instinctual
Even straight roads meander
Every piece contains a map of it all!
It all!

Out of the line (and) indivisible
A crow left of the murder
Every piece contains a map of it all!
It all!

Everything I wanted to know
Everything I wanted to see

Unlearn Me
Do You get it yet?
Look, Find, Free
Do you get it yet?

Talk Shows On Mute

Take a bow
Pack on powder
Wash 'em out with buzzing lights
Pay an audience to care
'Impress me' personality

Still and transfixed
The electric sheep are dreaming of your face
Enjoy you from the chemical
Comfort of America

Come one, come all
Into nineteen-eightyfour
Yeah, three, two, one...
Lights! camera! transaction!

Quick, Your time is almost up
Make 'em forget that they're the moth
Edging in towards the flame
Burn into obscurity

Still and transfixed
The electric sheep but dreaming up your fate
(We) judge you from the card castle
Comfort of America

Come one, come all
Into nineteen-eightyfour
Yeah, three, two, one...
Lights! camera! transaction!

Your foundation is canyoning
Fault lines should be worn with pride
I hate to say it (but)
You're so much more
You're so much more endearing with the sound turned off

Sick, Sad Little World

or, Turbo Geek/He Said
No, You're not the first to fall apart
But always the first one to complain
You better get careful or you'll compromise
Everything you are

This world is a drought when out of love
Please come back to us
You're all of the above
"I'm making a choice to be out of touch.
Leave me be." He said,

"Leave me here in my stark, raving, sick, sad little world!"I've never had unpaid confidantes
It's more than I would care to explain
But I have an open door policy
When it comes to blame

This world is a joke when out of love
Please come back to us
You're all of the above
"I'm making a choice to be out of touch.
Leave me be." He said,

"Leave me here in my stark, raving, sick, sad little world!"

Pistola

On the tip of my tongue an offensive is poised and rearing
My intention: a bullet
My body: a trigger finger

And my pen is a pistola
(Insert your lyric here)
And my pen is a pistola

My secret arsenal is an infinite ageless ink well
It's a fountain of youth and a patriot's weapon of choice

And my pen is a pistola
(Insert your lyric here)
And my pen is a pistola

On the tip of my tongue an offensive is poised and rearing
My intention: a bullet
My body: a trigger finger

And my pen is a pistola
(Insert your lyric here)
And my pen is a pistola

Southern Girl

Is everything a baited hook?
And are there locks on all doors?
If your looking for an open book
Look no further, I am yours

We'll behave like animals
Swing from tree to tree
We can do anything
That turns you up and sets you free

You're an exception to the rule
You're a bonafide rarity
You're all I ever wanted
Southern girl
Could you want me?

So come outside and walk with me
We'll try each other on to see if we fit
And with our roots, become a tree
To shade what we make, under it We'll behave like animals
Swing from tree to tree
We can do anything
That turns you up and sets you free

You're an exception to the rule
You're a bonafide rarity
You're all I ever wanted
Southern girl
Could you want me?

Zee Deveel

or, Beelzebub
Nice car!
Where'd you get your ride?
A trophy? Badge of honor? Overcompensation?
Price tags! Advertise your pride
Since when did what we paid for colored cloth gage our gravity?

Yeah you got your little world
Picture perfect, its a pearl
Now go and try and sleep in the bed you made

You should be careful what you wish for!
'Cause everyone of us has the devil inside
You should be careful what you wish for!
'Cause all of what amounts becomes you

Nice watch!
Man, do you got the time?
Theres never enough and it always goes too slow

Yeah you got your little world!
Picture perfect, its a pearl
Now go and try and sleep in the bed you made

You should be careful what you wish for!
'Cause everyone of us has the devil inside
You should be careful what you wish for!
'Cause all of what amounts becomes youNice watch!
Man, do you got the time?
Theres never enough and it always goes too slow
Price tags! Advertise your pride
Since when did what we paid for colored cloth gage our gravity?

You should be careful what you wish for!
'Cause everyone of us has the devil inside
You should be careful what you wish for!
'Cause all of what amounts becomes you

Smile Lines

or, High School Never Ends
Met my match today
Felt the blood rushing and mingling
A curious and enigmatic thing
Now spiders in my dreams...
Synchronicity weaves like a web
When you were meant to be a meal!

I want you bad!
I want you bad!
I understand why they say,
"High school never ends"

I'll never act my age
But you can tell by the lines in my smile
That I have been around for awhile
So, insecurities
Are about as useful as trying
To put the pin back in the grenade

I want you bad!
I want you bad!
I understand why they say,
"High school never ends"

I want you bad!
I want you bad!
I understand why they say,
"High school never ends"This isn't coincidence
There's no such thing
This isn't coincidence, no
This isn't coincidence
It's no such thing.
This isn't, no

I want you bad!
I want you bad!
I understand why they say,
"High school never ends"

Leech

Does it make you indie?
Does it make you proud?
To talk the world into a paper bag
Spotty stain of "I'm ok, you're not ok"
Yes, men too could be on the rag

I'm in over my head, I need a pick-me-up
Its easy to get high when you're standing on our backs, man
Will anything ever be good enough for you?
Stand on your own, hold your water if you can

The ride's over. Did you enjoy yourself?
The ride's over. Fairing well?
The ride's over. Did you enjoy yourself?
The ride's over. Fairing well?
Not on my time

It isn't fair to mention, but it awes the crowd
Your fictional, plastic alibis'
So take another hit, steal another line
Did you ever meet a leech who was good at goodbyes?

When you were down i always picked you up
Why didn't I recognize that everything was never fine?
I'm kicking myself that i shared spit with you
So fuck yourself
And fuck this bleeding heart of mine

The ride's over. Did you enjoy yourself?
The ride's over. Fairing well?
The ride's over. Did you enjoy yourself?
The ride's over. Fairing well?
Not on my time

When you were down i always picked you up
Why didn't I recognize that everything was never fine?
I'm kicking myself that i shared spit with you
So fuck yourself
And fuck this bleeding heart of mine

The ride's over. Did you enjoy yourself?
The ride's over. Fairing well?
The ride's over. Did you enjoy yourself?
The ride's over. Fairing well?
Not on my time

The ride's over
