Track Name: Confunktivitis
Lyrics:

Dudes with four eyes
Can't be so goddamn nice
You want my call
Don't think just ball

She'll steal my shoes
And give me pink eye ooze
I don't think I'd know what to do

A dark night lit under a pale moon sky
Air thick with silence from an awkward drive
You pull into fountain lanes; she's about to ask why
Then her eyes burn with lust when she sees

You brought your own ball
Ice breaks; stones fall
Track Name: Dancefloors
Lyrics:

Come apart, look away, you've seen things that you never ever thought you would see
You were wrong, not at first, you tried so hard but you don't understand how this works
Then step back, you will see all the places where you never ever thought you would be
Said and done, you don't know where you've been but you feel like you've seen a ghost
Track Name: Stonefacin
Lyrics:

Stonefacin. You're wastin your time tryna dig me
But go and keep throwin your **** while it's bouncin
Keep playin, keep playin your game, cuz, you're losin
Stonefacin. You're wastin your time tryna dig through my apathy

So tell me just what popped in your head
Made you think that I give a damn bout your two cents?
Did alpha male just find his style cramped
Thought that he might try to cut my rug in a dance?
Or are you just a bug buggin, and you thought you had a chance
To crawl up in the skin of a bigger man?

You think you spike your tone, I'll toss a bone
But I got mind to know some apes ain't worth the **** they throw
With every sound you make and every poke
Small, smaller you grow; talk so big to be micro
That's your plan, though - grow small enough you climb in my pores
Make this stoneface yours, grab and steal; you took my head
And I want you dead

I was always the calm one
Never saw myself come undone
Friends, peers, yell, jeer, turn to tears
When madness came and had his fun
I was always the calm one
Kept his head on
Head like the sun

You're just comin at me cause I'm all you see
Drawn in like the rest of the cosmic debris
Go on, try to tell me I'm much too heavy
*****, I'm massive, so come at me jabbin, watch me snap, that's the last thing you see
Track Name: Overcoats
Lyrics:

He headed for the door and he thought to himself
What’s another drink before I hit the road
He'll be ok, he’ll be ok
He got in his car and he turned the ignition
Lit up a cigarette put his put to the floor
He’ll be ok, he’ll be ok

He thought about the way that things used to be
And wondered what they’d think about him when he was gone
He’ll be ok, he’ll be ok
He got to his house and opened the door
Told himself tomorrow maybe he would change
He’ll be ok, he’ll be ok
Track Name: Fly Like Pigeons
Lyrics:

These long drives weave strong ties that can't be broken
Aw, I'm chokin up
But sometimes my head fills with the sweetest dreams
Of beating the absolute motherfuck

Out of your goddamn bitchass
I'm grabbin a baseball bat
And takin a swing, swing, swing

Next time you open your mouth
I'm gonna beat your brains out
They'll fly like pigeons

You wanna come at me?
Come on dude, I'm happy to oblige
Stoke the fire a little bit
Light it up, I might...

I'm not in the mood, but you got an attitude
Crankin crass tunes
That's the last one before you see me...

That's the last one before you see me
Pull out the guns, knock you on your buns
Hun, I'm gonna blow the top off of this van
Start a new band

Please drive, I'm tryna sleep
Why the fuck are you pumpin them brake lights

And knockin me on my ass
And spillin all my grass?
You're makin me mean, mean, mean

Next time you open your mouth
I'm gonna beat your brains out
They'll fly like pigeons
Track Name: Pigeons in Space
Lyrics:

Your eyes shine bright
But it would be misplaced for you to be delighted
What you see is not what you are
Have you gone too far?

Shine on...

Your look is undetected
My gaze goes unreflected
What you do is not what you once told me I should do
You used to be something I would remember

Shine on...
Track Name: Drugs
Lyrics:

My lungs are clean and yours to breathe
So take your cancer and give it to me
The night is gone now and you're still here
Waiting on someone to show you fear

Remember when they told you that the drugs so dark
Would stop your heart
I've been down this road before and I'll come back
if it means I can save your life

The simple things you said to me
I took for granted, but now I see
Your time is gone now and I'm still here
Waiting on someone to show me fear

It comes back to me when I sleep
I steal away and hide to keep
Our time is gone now and we're still here
Waiting on someone to show us fear
Track Name: Towers
Lyrics:

Walls of stone begin to fall
Towers lost they’ve take all
Compromised by what we thought
To be close friends, our treaties rot

Rotten like the air as darkness falls
They come in like cave creatures crawl
At this rate of break and take and rape
The walls we've made consume us all
And it feels like the universe is gone

Darkness falls upon the trees
Blisters cover hands and feet
Sound of footsteps drawing near
It seems our future is unclear

Rotten like the air as darkness falls
They come in like cave creatures crawl
At this rate of break and take and rape
The walls we've made consume us all
And it feels like the universe is gone
