Track Name: Middle Man
Blowing up
You need some help
I fly you buy
Price is a pinch
Middle man
Racing to get you what you need
My own hide for your high
Don't know ( don't know if)
If he's (If he is)
Or not
The middle man
Foggy road way hard to see
Drops give stoned eyes relief
The mission is almost complete
Hope you like better than before
Track Name: Pointing Out The Obvious
I have said something you already know
And now your wheels are turning
On what sarcastic remark will spill out
On what sarcastic remark will spill out your mouth
Damn you didn't know that, that don't you know shit
Thanks again prick for pointing out the obvious.
Well you said something that you know it's obviously been pointed out
And now your wheels are starting to turn
Damn you don't know that, when you don't know shit
Thank you again for pointing out the obvious
Track Name: Summon The Hammer
There's only one way to go
Do it you won't
Follow through the trail of smoke
Do it you won't
Summon the hammer
We are all friends here
No one will tell a soul
At least I won't
Do it you won't, do it you won't
Summoned by the hammer
Track Name: An Eye In Every Window
The sun comes up and the rain pours down
Behind the field is where he lives
While I sleep
He awakes at the sound of the last drop
Lids fly open wide
Teary eyes start to cry
I'm afraid, but he's way too big to get inside
The earth shakes
I can not hide
Running from room to room
An eye in every window
Getting closer, breathing louder
Running from room to room
Every window
It leaves and returns with the rain
So where am I to go
An eye in every window
It leaves and returns with the rain
Still running from room to room
An eye in every window.
Track Name: Brunt Of The Joke
Words spoke in vain
You're killing me
One more call to see
Where this could go
Simply say the word
So we can move on
The smile you once saw was mine
And now it's gone
Not taken lightly again and again
Around your throat brunt of the joke
Track Name: Sticks In My Craw
This nail is buried deep inside
Tearing through the roots
Let's resume the hunt, wait I'm tasting blood
Bad habits are hard to break
What's happening
Moving fast across the plains
Get it done before the dawn
So what if they stand afraid
So what if they stand alone
Sticks in my, sticks in my, sticks in my craw
Watching it all fall apart
Soon there will come a day
When it wont matter as much
Track Name: Winning The Race
Running with the wind
On the heels of dreams
To strive and to create
To start over again
Building and growing
This bout should be gravy
These walls seem sturdy
They will come down, will come down
Must keep pushing
Not as easy at first glance
I could be passed
I'm winning the race
Enemy riding close behind
I'm still winning the race
You lose again, lose again
The glee is pouring out of me
Back to the beginning
Track Name: The Lone Chime
A whisper in the wind, the lone chime
A tone I'll never hear again, the lone chime
The memories
Hearing sounds from down the street
Come back to me
Come back and set me free
By a thread with one left
Enough to sing one last song
By a thread with only one left
Enough to sing one last song
Track Name: Model Of Inefficiency
Nonsense I know that you're afraid
Nonsense I know that you're afraid
Whats the use in trying
Whats the use in trying
Full blown lids about to blow
Take it all alone
Take it alone
Model of Ineffiency
Track Name: Full Of Holes
Holding hands with the man who will surely ruin my whole life
Smile and laugh with the little ones
Waiting for a chance to shine down and take our minds.
Make your way with words carefree
That I can not explain
Let alone these but don't leave them alone
Get them home and crush all hope
Can't get away with this
You can't get away
Full of holes
Holding hands with the man
So full of holes
who will surely ruin my life
Smile and laugh with the little ones
You're so full of holes
Waiting for a chance to shine
Track Name: Bupkus
Head to head in a tilt a world
Six versus four a losing battle
All sparked up got no where to go bupkus
Track Name: Magee
knock down the door
drop to the floor
racing must breathe
erasing magee
structure burning
I'm lost in the scurry
exits are sealed off
weary, what is happening
singed, losing ability
fight for my dear life
help me, can not breathe
smoke has filled my lungs
four walls of flames separate me
from life and death
Track Name: Hidden Agenda
harping on actions for reasons unknown
pack it up
hit the road
dead end road
maybe not
time will tell
out of time
no, put that knife down
god you're making me sick
now growing wings
this pig can fly
