Track Name: Waking Dream
I've been drawn to the waterside by midnight R Kelly
Only the freaks come out at night, but I guess that's why I'm here

His voice cuts through the silence
and somehow revitalizes my soul inside my weathered body
Track Name: Pagliacci
Strayed from the flock
You can't seem to find the light
You turn it on, illuminate
No where to hide
So reinvent yourself like a chameleon
To hide your true form from yourself

You're just king shit of trash mountain
A small fish in an even smaller pond
You need permission from your brother
To feel one way or another
Goddamn, that's not for me

You took up smoking because you heard it made you cool
Just quit your job, so raise a glass and pardon a fool
It's alright to laugh at my expense
Just a sad clown, with poisonous ideas

You're just king shit of trash mountain
A small fish in an even smaller pond
You need permission from your brother
To feel one way or another
Goddamn, that's not for me

I've laid it bare but are you even listening
Just settled on a good thing
Track Name: Pollinator
Floating softly through the air
Ushering in the start of spring
And yet, they find themselves facing extinction
What did they do? Do they deserve this fate?
How can this be intelligent design?

What kind of god would make a bee look like a wasp?

A parasite that shows no mercy
Somehow thriving on the death
And the decay that surrounds us
But can you blame them, adapt and survive
Live or die, they just do it well

What kind of god would make a bee look like a wasp
Not one that cares, not one that's being fair
Not one worth listening to, one indifferent to your prayers

Eulogy for the bees
Track Name: Scaredy Cat
Can't wait to pick you up, so I get behind the wheel
To steer this two tonne mass of accelerated steel
All so we can get to where we're going
Despite the good chance that we won't make it

The great migration is in my DNA
I can't escape it

Last time I checked, I'm still stuck to this rock that's hurling through the void
Stuck in it's orbit, circling the drain just like the hair in my shower
Pacing myself between the lines
Burning rubber on the concrete
We're still a long way off from where we need to be

The great migration is in my DNA
I can't escape it

Maybe today I'll earn my halo
Today is the day I'll let go of the wheel
Track Name: Beguiled
I've become a hermit in my hometown
Can't go outside, I might see someone that I know
But this life is one I've chosen
Solace in solitary motions

This place has beguiled me, and that's alright.

A self-medicated recluse
That just keeps doing what he knows
He may be crazy, but he doesn't lack compassion
So who is the crazy one?

This place has beguiled me, and that's alright.
