Track Name: PIXELS I CALL HOME
i know it's hard, babe; who can forget?
life is bad, but it's not over yet
and the world may be sad, but it's not too far gone
there's still a chance, i gotta keep a hold

it's bad in your heart, but there's still some good luck
we can make it wearing feathers and capes - what the fuck?
cause all of this time, you thought it was gone
but now it's just back in a different form...
stars are the only pixels i call home

(ohhh... you can do this...)

all of this time, i thought it was hard
i see i was blind! i had it all wrong!
i saved every princess, i'm there with the best
so why am i still such a mess?

the planet i'm on... the nobody sun...
i'm a third-person omnipresent far up above
donut plains... vanilla dome...
and yet so far from the pixels i call home
Track Name: HEARSAY
(rrrzccchtttktttk)

automatic people
brought up to behave
that would live and learn
they would crash and burn
they were makin the same mistakes

but they rikkt-chk-a-chkt don't
gimme no gimme no
hearsay...

you will hear me when i tell you
i refuse to be treated this way

ah ah, y'know

people get funny takin in $$$
giving out their drip feed good advice
cause it aint free but at least its cheap
every bit is worth the price

rchkt-chtk-a-chtk don't
gimme no gimme no
hearsay

but you will hear me when i tell you
i refuse to be treated this... treated this...

[white house erupts into spontaneous flames during solo, apparently]

you bend and twist that story round
to make it fit the page
you ca advertise me / paralyze me
but when do i get paid? yah

rchkt,chkt,chkt dont gimme no gimme no hearsay. what. now.
you will hear me when i tell you i refuse to be treated this way

<outro class="freakhop" value="give:false; hear/say target="blank">
Track Name: WELCOME HOME
one by one i watch everyone i know get caught in the web
day by day we race to our prey and drag it back to the nest
home is where the hole is where the home is... welcome home.

paid
and shuttled
back and
forth in
single files down...
relationships of
cat-a-lytic clips of pain.

ooh, 1 by 1 i watch everyone i know get caught in the web
day x day we race to our prey and drag it back to the nest

(zoom out)

days turn to waves
and spherical games
hate what you make
and kill what you waste
(and i /made/ it)

(sss, ooh) s'good to be home... home... e home... e...

one by one i watch ev ry one i know get caught in the web
Track Name: HOW LONG
when i could ask you why
you're not coming home with me
oh could i beg you now? would i try to?
what's it gonna be?

now - i can count the ways
i count the ways you make me pay
you can't waste what you can't erase
as i wait...
with a break on your face, and -

i just cannot carry on
when you're in my arms you don't belong
how long til you're gone?
oh won't you tell me -

how long are you gonna lead me on
how long are you gonna right my wrong
how long till you're gone
won't you tell me how long?

(gasp, ow ow ow)

now i - could tell you why
ooh can't you see i'm torn
just to watch... as you crawl
and it's wrong... it goes on and on and

i just can't believe
this is not the way it seemed
and you co'nt chase what you can't erase
as i wait...
but the blait's on my face, now -

i just cannot carry on
when you're in my arms you don't belong
how long til you're gone?
oh won't you tell me -

how long are you gonna lead me on
how long are you gonna right my wrong
how long till you're gone
won't you tell me how long

how long?

Track Name: THE CRACK-UP
pacing, every moment is leaking out
wasting every breath on a prayer to no one
now - i'm much too tired for this
now - as my reality splits
and now - it's just a flick of the switch
and it's getting loud...

but sometimes it's light...
life...
now i got the feeling (someone gonna hurt me)
i realize (but no one's gonna hear you)
nothing's come to harm me (the sun is going down i know)
... and the switch...

THIS must be IT i'm cracking UP
THIS must be IT i'm cracking UP (oh baby i'm cracking)
oh, don't crack up! don't crack up! (oh give up)

and when there's no one left to blame
and i'm hanging upside-down on a spiraling plane
i will NOT CALM DOWN and i won't crack up now


beat down broken burnt out bleeding and buzz/zzz/ing
paralyzing pointless progression for nothing, naw
but no0ow- you're givin' into the glitz
aw naw - you're doing terrible shit
and now - i'm down to pieces and bits

i taste the light... light...
it's nothing but a dream (it's like pictures on a screen)
all my mind
i think i better lose it (it does no good to use it)
all this... is glitch... must... be... (laughter)

this must be it - i'm cracking up (oh right)
this must be it - i'm cracking up, i'm going down down
oh crack up, don't crack up, don't crack up
and enough... is enough
is enough
is ENOUGH

and when there's no one left to blame
i mean hanging upside-down on a spiraling plain
i will NOT CALM DOWN and i won't crack up now

down, down, down
Track Name: SILVERCOLOR
i was once an innocent high
loaded down and locked
and given shape to hold
and not told why

ooh, there may be something you want
do not have, but must own - aw come on
would you not just love to take it all?

sil ver co lor tragedy
they tried to take it away from me
i can't sleep without my silver, please
please

i was once like cacophamine
obscene offscreen fantasy
now i fear it may be ending me

maybe you really dont care
which way the world turn - but beware
somewhere, out there
someone sees you clear

sil ver co lor tragedy
they tried to take it away from me
i can't sleep without my silver please

this flash of magic agony
the crack and bang on a big screen
i aint safe without my silver please
please

\\ armed police kick in doors to homes
and guitar \\

i was once that innocent high you loved
but what happens now??
yeah, today you may say "pacifist"
but not to those who own most of this
thrust upon you, a good world turned to shit

oh

silvercolor tragedy
they try to take it away from me
i can't sleep without mine there
i can't sleep without my silver
