Moon 02:12
The moon is looking bright and full She brings the tide in just for me Gazing at her craters on the beach Longing for her celestial body Good night moon I'll see you soon Oh when the sun has gone Good night moon I'll see you soon Oh when the day is done The sun I hear him laugh at me As I'm sweating on the street Oh what a bright white angry beast Its so hot I can hardly breathe Good night moon I'll see you soon Oh when the sun has gone Good night moon I'll see you soon Oh when the day is done

Stock up on food and oxygen then count down to ignition There are voices on the radio orders from mission control With a heart of steel and silicon The engine fires and then I'm gone Hotter than the sun hotter than the sun Start my ascent at the count of one like a bullet shot from a gun Hotter than the sun hotter than the sun Radar follows Your blip as you float there Lighter than air There's nothing left this side of mars I've seen it all I've gone so far Hotter than the sun hotter than the sun Land this tin can on the rusty ground Be the only man when I set her down Hotter than the sun hotter than the sun

Simian Rock 02:06
Monkey tones in your skull Vibrating little bones It's already there It permeates the air Static every where Where are your market shares when you are dead and no one cares Animals driving cars Wearing suits, waging wars People turn and sway In an ape-like way Do it every day Where are your market shares When you are dead and no one cares

Visible Man 03:49
Fresh mud on the carpet Drying in the sun From the window pane I haven't left this room In what seems like days Am I the only one Who does things like this I want to Be see through All in all I think I still believe Yes the world is slowly killing me Knee deep in my own catharsis Stepping on my thoughts Hoping it will rain Maybe even flood And wash us all way Is it wrong to think That could be OK

Summer is a dead man walking today Dead in his tracks the seasons will change I will not cry a single tear I promised myself I wouldn't this year Sun will go down it's always the same Too cold to go play in the sun Say good bye to the fun everyone Locked inside and I'm losing my mind My swimming pool froze over last night Summer just wont be the same Say goodbye to the games we played Some will grow old and some move away But what ever happens the players will change I guess that's how everything is Too cold to go play in the sun Say good bye to the fun everyone Locked inside and I'm losing my mind My swimming pool froze over last night Remember the heat Of the sun on the street And the words that you said Summer is dead

Icarus 04:04
Searchlights burn the sky There is no heaven anymore Just satellites and airports Good bye we leave tonight If you can get off the ground Don't fly too high or you'll get shot down In front of me I see the stars They shine so bright on darkest nights Through blackest space a billion miles I'm awake but I can dream Among the beams of silver light Of Saturn's rings and martian skies I wanna fly like Icarus But these plastic wings don't do the trick The clouds divide the open sky I will posses this weightlessness Even when I die Searchlights burn the sky There is no heaven anymore Just satellites and Airports Good bye we leave tonight If you can get off the ground Don't fly too high or you'll get shot down

Cactus splinters in my bones and I can feel the pain My mouth is scorched and I dying of thirst for The thirst for something sane The vultures fly overhead and they're picking at my brain I got nothing, nothing left, nothing to my name Go tell the boys I've gone out west to die alone I'm never coming home again I think I'll hang my guns up for good just one this time Go tell the sheriff that I'm dead
8.
Animal 05:03
I don't know why It's the sky It's just blue As you're choking on your ghost You'll finally get the cosmic joke Chuckle softly as you sigh The punchline's in the grand design Hope I come back as something else Like a fish or bird or elk Far away from urban hell Somewhere I can be myself I don't know why It's the sky It's just blue As you're choking on your ghost You'll finally get the cosmic joke Chuckle softly as you sigh The punchline's in the grand design Hope I come back as something else Like a fish or bird or elk Far away from urban hell Somewhere I can be myself I'm an animal in closed Brick and mortar steel and stone Bury me in naked bones Cause when I die I'm going home

Light Headed 04:56
If your head could pop like a big balloon Thoughts like rubber pieces on the floor I would breathe in every molecule Sailing on your brain waves to the shore Affection is a ghost we like to touch A phantom pain that haunts you when you're born This sea of many peoples can be rough So we search for something soft and warm
10.
Wet Blanket 03:59
A broken heart and a broken face No one seems to relate A crooked smile and a clockwork brain A simple mind for a simple pain My complexion looks like glass I'm looking out you're looking in I've been cursed with something else Since I got that see-through skin Drag my body down the road Leaving footprints in the snow But it don't matter where I go I'll always be invisible
