TAPES

Uh oh oh you don't know what you want
So you try to turn it off.
I see through your front if you see through mine.
My mental log depends upon
What I'm relying on.

Here in a garden I sit
Wondering what I have missed.
I'm standing here alone, it's always been like this.
Uh oh oh you don't know what you want
So you try to turn it off.
I see through your front if you see through mine.
My mental log depends upon
What I'm relying on.

I hear what I wanna hear.
Do you know what I wanna know?
You run until you're down in the ground.

Uh oh oh you don't know what you want
so you try to turn it off.
I see through your front if you see through mine.
My mental log depends upon
What I'm relying on.

Uh oh oh I don't know what you want
So I cannot give you what
I don't understand.
Were your plans delayed?
My mental state depends of late
On who I can relate.
Track Name: Like A Diatom
LIKE A DIATOM

I had a sensation.
It was making me mad.
It was all that I had on my mind.

I had a sensation.
It was making me mad.
It was all that I had on my mind.
When you get angry you turn on your light.
Turn out the light.
Turn it on at night.

Now you're like a diatom in the sea.
Don't know where you are.
Thought you're not so far away,
No more yesterdays.
No more yesterdays.

I'm excited by a worthless crutch.
Totally crushed and
I want to see so much
That I could never see.
I don't want parasites running anyone's lives anymore.
I've closed the door.

Now you're like a diatom in the sea.
Don't know where you are.
Thought you're not so far away,
No more yesterdays.
No more yesterdays.

I had a sensation.
It was making me mad.
It was all that I had on my mind.
When you get angry you turn on your light.
Turn out the light.
Turn it on at night.

Now you're like a diatom in the sea.
Don't know where you are.
Thought you're not so far away,
No more yesterdays.
No more yesterdays.

When I tell you I won't tell you lies.

When you say that you will not do anything.

Let's all get taken for a ride.

Who believes me.

Track Name: Constant Change
CONSTANT CHANGE

Have you made a little shelter.
Are you unaware.
You turn the lights out
And don't care.

Did you find your conclusion,
A simple safe solution.
Did you find your conclusion.

Did you say that you could work this out,
That you could carry on,
That you could change my mind.

I'm changing my mind.
I think I'm changing my mind.
I'm changing my mind
All of the time.

I gave you what you asked for
And you turned away.
But I won't try anymore
And you're on your own.

Did you find your conclusion,
A simple safe solution.
Did you find your conclusion.

Did you say that you could work this out,
That you could carry on,
That you could change my mind.

I think I'm changing my mind.
I think I'm changing my mind.
I'm changing my mind
I think I'm changing my mind.
I think I'm changing my mind.
I'm changing my mind
All of the time.

You knew the answer long ago
And even though you knew
The things you thought were nothing knew.
Have you made a little shelter.
Well you're unaware.
You turn the lights out and don't care.

Did you find your conclusion,
A simple safe solution.
Did you find your conclusion.

Did you say that you could work this out,
That you could carry on,
That you could change my mind.

I think I'm changing my mind.
I think I'm changing my mind.
I'm changing my mind
I think I'm changing my mind.
I think I'm changing my mind.

I think I'm changing my mind
Again.
Track Name: The Big Ride
THE BIG RIDE

Established people's rise to fall.
Customs can offer proof.

Developing immunity to forms of alterations,
The latest mesmerizing trend of all the nations.
Momentum is building on the path of least resistance.
We need another life to live to get it all right.

All the tributaries jumping on the big ride
Ending at the big sea, swallowed by the high tide.
Jumping on the big ride, ending at the big sea
Swallowed by the high tide.

Place all the orders. Winding a new reel.
Taping their fiction.
Momentum is building on the path of least resistance.
We need another life to live to get it all right.

All the tributaries jumping on the big ride
Ending at the big sea, swallowed by the high tide.
Jumping on the big ride, ending at the big sea
Swallowed by the high tide.
Track Name: Wanna Write A Letter
WANNA WRITE A LETTER

I'd wanna write a letter to you.
I'd wanna write a letter to you.
I'd wanna write a letter to you.

It's you.
It always has been you.
I look to the side and pretend
That the wars are now all over
And then the wars are starting again.
Is immaturity so important
To you in the end?
You'll pick up a pencil and...

I'd wanna write a letter to you.
Wanna write a letter to you.
Wanna write a letter...
I'd wanna write a letter to you.

It's true.
It always has been true.
You're reacting to the things that you do.
If you hear it fifty million times
Will it remain in your head.
If you say it too many times
Will it be truer instead?
You'll pick up a pencil and...

I'd wanna write a letter to you.
Wanna write a letter to you.
Wanna write a letter...
I'd wanna write a letter to you.
I'd wanna write a letter to you.
I'd wanna write a letter to you.

But wait, I know there's been a mistake
And you...you'll get the message too late.
If you hear it fifty million times
Will it remain in your head?
If you say it too many times
Will it be truer instead?
You'll get what you believe.

Can you believe it.
Can you believe it.
Can you believe it.
Can you believe it.
Can you believe it at all.

Track Name: Escapes
ESCAPES

You're so caught up in the news
That you've forgotten what you think.
It is important for you
To know what happens every day.

But this is really something new.
And the news can make you great.
When you sleep you seem awake.
Publications make you greater.

Let's get involved in odd sports
So we'll forget that we are sad.
Some of us don't understand it
And it slowly drives us mad.

But this is something that we need.
Block your mind out for a while.
Try to think of this escape
As a way of being occupied.

So choose the best of these sources.
Get devoured.
Select a fitting escape and
Be entertained for hours.

Let me know
What is what and what is why.
When you have something to hide.
Drugs are mainly used by young adults.
Alcohol is served in restaurants.

Let me know
What is what and what is why.

Track Name: Breakfast Cereal
BREAKFAST CEREAL

Oh well I don't seem to care
What you say or you wear.
People act viciously.
But what I want is the thought
That you already know.
People act viciously.

And I, I admit I am malicious at times.
We all have a tolerance that's well defined.
You may seem to think that you don't care.
But that won't get you anywhere.

It's great to live in a world
Full of terror and hate.
People act viciously.
It's sad to see all the news
On the six o'clock news.
People act viciously.

But we, we escape the world in many odd ways.
I know there's a reason for these lonely faces.
You may seem to think
There's no one there.
But there are people everywhere.

And everybody cares about you
If you only want them to.
There's good in three percent of all
So think of them when you choose.

Life is just a breakfast cereal.
Life is just a breakfast cereal.
Life is just a breakfast cereal.
There's a prize in each and every box.

What prize did you get?
It's a zebra.

If we could all buy a gun
And then shoot only one.
People act viciously.
We would have peace on the earth
But is that really worth it?
People act viciously.

But we, we escape the world in many odd ways.
I know there's a reason for these lonely faces.
You may seem to think there's no one there
But there are people everywhere.

And everybody cares about you
If you only want them to.
There's good in six percent of all
So think of them when you choose.

Life is just a breakfast cereal.
Life is just a breakfast cereal.
Life is just a breakfast cereal.
There's a prize in each and every box.

What prize did you get?
It's a happy couple.

You do know.
Do you know.
Don't you know.
You do know.
Do you know.
Don't you know.
You do know.
Do you know.
Don't you know.
You do know.
Do you know.
Don't you know.

Oh well I don't seem to care
What you say or you wear.
People act viciously.
But what I want is the thought
That you already know
People act viciously.

And everybody cares about you
If you only want them to.
There's good in ten percent of all
So think of them when you choose.

Life is just a breakfast cereal.
Life is just a breakfast cereal.
Life is just a breakfast cereal.
Track Name: This Is Logical Thinking
THIS IS LOGICAL THINKING

No I won't feel all right
When all the things that you're saying
Are things you heard on the TV.
It surprises me
When a transmitter creates all the things that you hear and sea
In a sea of your very own philosophy.
It's too bad but I'm glad
And there's no reason to lie...
I won't lie anymore.

There are too many brands
Of products to choose from.
We never can use them all.
You're too sensitive
And you should be more inventive
Unless you can think of how to excel
In this ocean full of homo males...
Anyway I must say
Psychology gave me a reason to give up hope.

I was young.
I was old.
I was an English mathematician long ago.
But I've changed.
And it's strange to envision the cycles we live are a joke.
Can't you see?
It's a logic full of anarchy.
And we kill to excite
All the people so bored that
They never could notice
This.
Track Name: Semi-Circular
SEMI-CIRCULAR

Semi-circular.
Lost businessmen look for their niches in cities.
These little guys, they keep their eyes open for a sale
And keep emotional feelings
Inside a European fit.
To have a life that of father's
They're getting paid to relieve other's bothers.
Blame it on yourself and blame it on the guys in jail.

We must stand on the outside looking in.
He wants his wife to be nice.
You'll find a semi-circular kind of wife
To make you think you really have a happy life.

Just like his doggy he anticipates eating.
He takes a walk, there isn't a leash then
Run and catch the ball
And act real big when you're real small.
Semi-circular.

And we must stand on the outside looking in.
He wants his dog to obey.
You'll find a semi-circular dog real soon
To make you think a friend is in your living room.

No one can evaluate it.
First you love it then you hate it.
And you won't sign a contract to document
The love that you pledge.
It's useless unless it can be enjoyed
And never be destroyed.
I don't want to follow a pattern.
People tell me that it doesn't matter.
And then they sign a contract to document
Their wedding to be
In a circular sea.
They don't even think
Til they're already sinking.
Semi-circular.

We must stand on the outside looking in.
You don't know you're controlled.
Go break that semi-circular kind of mold
Before you're middle-aged
Or you will grow old
Alone.
Track Name: Impossible
IMPOSSIBLE

Have no one.
You don't need anyone.
I sympathize and
You don't realize
It all seems so small on the horizon.
After you fall it's impossible.
After you fall...impossible.
Do your best.
I won't take any less.
You're under stress
And you don't understand
It all seems so small on the horizon.
After you fall it's impossible.
After you fall...impossible.
Have no one.
You don't need anyone.
I sympathize and
You don't realize
That it all seems so small on the horizon.
After you fall it's impossible.
After you fall...impossible.
Track Name: Comparative Analysis
COMPARATIVE ANALYSIS

Who are these men?
Where have they been?
Walk around exactly like a king,
Put down everything.
Shut in. Shut out. Keep it all away
In a little bottle, it's the safest way.
Ah ha ha that's as simple as it gets...
Comparative analysis.

Who are these girls?
What in the world
Do you think you're doing with your brain?
Everyone's the same.
Shut in, shut out, keep it all away
In a little bottle, it's the safest way.
Ah ha ha that's as simple as it gets.
Comparative analysis.

By comparative analysis you changed your mind
And left me here to die.
I can't forgive the hate you planted in my heart.
I can't forgive the pain.
I don't know where to start.

Comparative analysis.

What have you done?
What's your reason?
Keep your little nose up in the air.
I don't really care.
And it's a game that people play in different ways.
You try to step on anyone who's in your way.
Ah ha ha that's as simple as it gets.
Comparative analysis.

By comparative analysis we staged our war
Exactly as before.
And it's a fight to keep your anger in control.
Some people never realize until they're old.
Maybe some day we'll determine what it is.
Comparative Analysis.
Track Name: Y?
Y?

If you find yourself crying alone
You need help.
You don't need to be alone.
And I'll find out why
You didn't even try.
I wonder why.

Contradict the facts,
Consider the whole.
And though you can't relax,
I think I can help you with
All the times you tried
Were worth the hate inside.
I wonder why.

We're ordinary, ordinary fools.
We don't need help.
We don't need to follow rules.
And I'll find out why
The things you said were lies.
I wonder why.

Take the things you dream
And place them all in a row.
Study hard...or you won't make good grades.
What's the use at all?
And why do I feel small?
I wonder why.
Track Name: Sandwich Time For The Smaller Children
SANDWICH TIME FOR THE SMALLER CHILDREN

One of the lines is finally breaking
And two of the lines are drawing together.
Of all the lines I might say this line's mine.
And two of the birds
Are flying beside themselves.
But one of the birds
Was thinking to himself,
"Would she believe this line's in a bird's eye."

I know no one I see
And I see no one that I want to know.
So hold back your heart and think of nothing.

But we'd know what's on the beat
Because I know that's where I must go.
I must go up to another land
Where you won't hear our command.
You won't believe what you won't believe
Until you understand.

She goes she goes she goes.
We go we go we go we go we go.

When there is no life inside of their headroom
They seem to invent the things in their bedroom.
Of all the lines I might say this line's mine.
And two of the birds
Are flying beside themselves.
But one of the birds
Was thinking to himself.
Would she believe this line's in a bird's eye.

I know no one I see
And I see no one that I want to know.
So hold back your heart and think of nothing.

But we'd know what's on the beat
Because I know that's where I must go.
I must go up to another land
Where you won't hear our command.
You won't believe what you won't believe
Until you understand.

She goes she goes she goes.
We go we go we go we go we go.

But we'd know what's on the beat
Because I know that's where I must go.
I must go up to another land
Where you won't hear our command.
You won't believe what you won't believe
Until you understand.

She goes she goes she goes.
We go we go we go we go we go.
