Track Name: Wakin' Up
Woke up this morning with an aching back
And the best thing for it was my old hat
Put it on my head, and turn on the stove
How come nothin' ever good is on the radio?

Wakin' up
Is always gettin' in my way
Seems like otherwise
I'd have an all right day

Make my coffee, I don't drink it black
I like cream and sugar 'cause I'm sweet like that
Gettin' on my boots has become such a chore
And time is a man that you cannot ignore

Wakin' up
Is always gettin' in my way
Seems like otherwise
I'd have an all right day
Track Name: The Past Plus the Future is Present
He'll keep on falling in circular motion
Until the grey druid takes his hand and shows him
How he makes it all stop and just floats in the center
You can continue on sinnin' if you play the repenter

The past plus the future is present
The shape of the moon is crescent
What I was then, and what I am to be
They come together inside of me

Mystical caverns filled with glowing white prisms
Are all ancient creatures filled with knowledge and wisdom
You keep following the path, but the slope becomes steeper
And the ceiling drops out as you travel in deeper

The past plus the future is present
The shape of the moon is crescent
What I was then, and what I am to be
They come together inside of me

Is man mightier with the sword, or without
Does it make him more fierce, or put his courage in doubt
intelligence creates weapons and weapons defeat creatures
But man stripped and bare can't rely on his features

The past plus the future is present
The shape of the moon is crescent
What I was then, and what I am to be
They come together inside of me
Track Name: We’ll Go on a Trip, You and I
Turning wheels and the spokes go round
And we fly over the ground
They tell me that I have nothing
But look at all that I have found

And if you hold me tight
We'll go for a ride
Straight into the sky
And when we come down
We'll still be high

A gentle breeze blowing through our hair
(A place where time doesn't matter)
A place where we don't have a care
(Going up is slow, but going down is much faster)

And if you hold me tight
We'll go for a ride
Straight into the sky
And when we come down
We'll still be high
Track Name: The Deeper You Go
Deeper and deeper you go
But you don't ever realize how far
Turn by turn doesn't seem so long
But you have left ages behind you

And you'd swear that the stone was awake
It shifts and it moves underneath
Then crumbles and chokes off the way
Do you turn back, or forever stay

Thought flow, no heat cold
The turn went, we did then
Follow up, but on what
Life takes over, it's not the end
Not a new beginning either
Your ego tried to eat her
What a terrible waste, this middle paced place
Slowly on our way, taedium vitae

Eliminate my dreams
Eliminate possibility
Show me the end so I can just stop trying
I wanna know where I stand
If I'm good for nothing then say I am
I'm drowning in all this infinity
I want a brick wall
i want a dead end street
At least then I'd know how and why
I am supposed to die
Track Name: We Are the Hopeless
Pray to heaven to be forgiven
But there are more in hell who'll listen
The one's who threw it all away
Who hated their lives and went insane

We are the hopeless
We are blackhearted
There is no future
We are forgotten

Moderate nowhere ordinary mores
They watch us drown from faultless shores
They know nothing but feign all
And they only want to see us fall

We are the hopeless
We are blackhearted
There is no future
We are forgotten

Eliminate my dreams
Eliminate possibility
Show me the end, so I can just stop trying
I wanna know where I stand
If I'm good for nothing then say I am

We are the hopeless
We are blackhearted
There is no future
We are forgotten
Track Name: Square Triangle
Cannot find the proper angle
All these lines I must untangle
If I am to find the square triangle
Track Name: I'm Lost
Falling down and I'm bleeding
I'm tired and I'm beaten
I don't smoke 'em like I used to
Somehow I started to slow down
But I can still drink lots a whiskey
I just don't go out on the town

All I ever knew
Was that I loved you
But everything went wrong and I'm lost
And I'm lost

The bottles are all lined up
Empty one and all
I thought the hurt would stop
When I hit the wall
But I still feel the pain I did before
And maybe now I even feel it more
Yeah I still feel the pain I did before
And maybe now I even feel it more

All I ever knew
Was that I loved you
But everything went wrong and I'm lost
And I'm lost
Track Name: (I Will) Watch My Hair Grow
A morning
Unmoving
Unbeckoned to the plow

Unearning
Unyearning
Unsullied by the trials

I will watch my hair grow
Down to wear my feet poke
From my blanket
And I don’t care who knows
