Track Name: Time Machine (single version)
Words escape without lips speaking
and the cold front breaks
with the summer sunshine leaking
but I can't build myself a time machine to stop the thing, i can't stop the thing.

I'm not the thought, I thought before
and I'm the standard form of metaphot
but I can't bring myself a time machine
to save the thing, I can't save a thing

I had to see what was underneath
before I left it alone
to witness the bored kids
who sung the insolent songs
and we can't build a simple time machine
we can't build a simple time machine

words escape while your heart's still reeling
and the clouds won't break
with the oil we've been stealing
we're both looking for a brand new scene
of handshakes and time machines
we're both looking for a brand new scene
of handshakes and time machines

I can't build myself a time machine to stop the thing I can't stop the thing
I can't build mself a time machine to save the thing I can't save a thing...
Track Name: Dark Star
terrorized on a tuesday morning
again i've missed the steps
i was never anywhere close to what the intel said

it's too big a picture to see the finer lines,
the ones that make one a target in iron sights

I didn't see anything thing that I was trained to see
it had everything to do
every little thing to do with me...

instant headache in the center of the forehead
it's not pain, it's embarrassment, which is pain
take off my glasses rub my forehead rub out the embarrassment
forget the future, the future is now

I didn't see anything thing that I was trained to see
it had everything to do
every little thing to do with me...

and maybe i'm the point of a microscopic joke, a cosmic low
a dark star's glow...
