Track Name: Momma Says
Momma says you can burn out with dreams
Catch the forest and melt with the breeze
Back then the world was your oyster
Now you keep getting older

Momma says I’ve been deaf, dumb and blind
Hates the way that I spend my fucking time
When you catch me, oh ill be a smiling
Young kids grow up to be tyrants

How it goes
Out through your toes
Into bones
Until it stop, stop, stop, stop, stops

I’m not getting any closer
I’m not getting any closer
You’re not my kind
You’re not my kind

Momma says shes got fed up with me
Kicks me out on the cold concrete
She never knew she’d be missin
Throw up and diapers and kisses

How it goes
Out through your toes
Into bones
Until it stop, stop, stop, stop, stops

I’m not getting any closer
I’m not getting any closer
You’re not my kind
Track Name: Replace Myself
Every time I laugh do you mean to
Leave that taste in my mouth
I can see through your intentions
I know what’s really going down

Your gonna laugh and smile and sing
And pretend like its nothing
Then when the fools want to take their turn
Picking off your mask, now who’s getting burned

I was just wasted on this youth
Gotta cut ties when dealing with the truth
Light my blood most toxic fuse
Set it on fire, now who’s killing who

Your gonna laugh and smile and breathe
And pretend like you can’t see
Then when the fools want to take their turn
Ripping off your mask now who’s getting burned

I would replace myself too
I would replace myself too
I would replace myself too
But I’m never gonna do it
Never with you
Track Name: Ketamind
I’m gonna walk on down the line
With my head strung out and my eyes on fire
If you see me looking for a personality
Tell me that its far from reality

I’ve been strung by ball and chain
I’ve got addiction, cigarettes, and cellophane
Everyone here for got your name?
Fuck them all, they’re all the same

Tell me something that I didn’t know
If I miss the moon where will I go
I got a lot of shit here on the floor
When I’m laying alone, cause I lost the war
My friend gone and lost her mind
Got hooked on the thing they called ketamine
If anyone seems to find the time
Can you tell her that she’s not alright

Can’t you see its all in my head (x3)

Two more days and I’m coming late
When the world crashed in did you all escape?
Do you find yourself? Do you find the way?
Is everyone lost? Is everyone okay?

I’ve been tripping from the benadrol
Got a nasty bruise and a better scar
And it makes me move and it tears my heart
But I feel so fine and I feel so smart

Can’t you see its all in my head (x3)
Track Name: About You
“Don’t wanna get in when the world gets out”
“Wanna cut my skin wanna shut my mouth”
“Wanna take my eyes from the big glass pain
And the big glass world and the big glass game”

I don’t’ care about you, you don’t care about me
I don’t care about you, you don’t care about me
I don’t care about you, you don’t care

“Wanna break my knees, wanna pucker up”
“Wanna take some ease when the slut gets rough”
“Wanna take your time as you suck my soul”
“Wanna look so fine sittin on the gas stove”

I don’t’ care about you, you don’t care about me
I don’t care about you, you don’t care about me
I don’t care about you, you don’t care

I don’t’ care about you, you don’t care about me
I don’t care about you, you don’t care about me
I don’t care about you, you don’t care

I don’t care about you…
Track Name: Problem With The World
Got a problem with the law?
Ya wanna be somethin, but they always try their best
Just to get you

Got a problem with the law?
Wanna be someone, but they’re always gonna try to bring you down

Between the redlight tix
and stripper skirts
and all those nights where you drank so much
so much

Got a problem with your friends?
You wanna be somethin, but they’re always gonna see you
Just the same

Got a problem with your friends?
Wanna be someone, but they’re never gonna let you change

Between the alcohol
And concert halls
And the good old-fashioned middle school dance
You can’t dance

I tried to see this world as one big game
But its not, its not the same

Got a problem with your love?
You gonna need her bad, but she always leave you feeling that way

Got a problem with your love?
Gonna need her bad, but she never wanna let you change

So you chase her through those airport eyes and the lack of time
Did you think you’d find her there?
Its not fair.
Track Name: Devil Stretch
Strolling down that city stretch with dead birds at your feet
While the devils squawking overhead and talking in your ear
To think, one look in his eye would make a thousand men feel fear
And all the people passing by, while all insanity is real

The Kashmir people are just melting in the snow
They’re left wandering how much there is to know
So now you talk, to talk, to talk talk talk
And I’m laughing in your ear

I was racing with the flood my body becomes an albatross
Never wanna look and see the show, when reign is fire and bombs explode
I’m gonna look into the eye of any motherfucker who wants tory
And as he reached in for his cross, seconds later he had lost

The Kashmir people are just melting in the snow
They’re left wandering how much there is to know
And you keep trembling cause every fucking time
The body’s left burning, the devils in his prime

Talk to talk to talk talk talk and I’m laughing in your ear (x2)
