Track Name: Heartbeat
I'm just sitting here thinking, listening to my heart beat

Your time is up
your minute's here
your cord is cut
your fog is on the mirror
my heart stops
I disappear
before your beat it drops
I'm on my way out

cuz I don't wait around for no one

whatcha gonna pay for me?
whatcha gonna make of me?
whatcha gonna take from me that I cant take from you or try to steal myself?

Whatcha gonna give to me?
how you gonna live with me?
How can I forgive you when you ain't done nothing that warrants a truce?

Your time is up
your minute's here
your cord is cut
your fog is on the mirror
my heart stops
I disappear
before your beat it drops
I'm on my way out

Cuz I don't wait around for no one even though the possibility is always waiting for me, standing right in front of me.

Why you wanna play with me?
why you wanna placate me?
why do you dissuade me from sitting with you and discussing different points of view?

I find it disturbingly rude
that I can't get a word in with you
listen to the dead because like it or not, you'll be taking their place in the ground

I dont wait around for no one

I saw you sitting there, completely unaware,
oblivious to me, listening to your heartbeat.
I saw you playing dead, totally unprepared to give yourself to me
but you keep begging 60 seconds baby
why not now?
what the fuck are you waiting for?
I know you know your intuition isn't stupid superstition
and now I'm sitting there, suspended in the air
waiting for a beat.
waiting for a heartbeat.
Track Name: Promiscuous
Take a second to take a second guess
cuz every enemy of mine has always been a pessimist
Quttin' isn't in my dictionary, my definition of a sissy is
he who doesn't rub it in when he wins

It'll titillate you when I look you in the eye
give a funny little feeling and you wanna try
It's a serious side-split, ticklish, hilarious, thin fabric
so go ahead and get ripped in two

I need you
to buy my excuse
"It is what it is"

He's promiscuous, he keeps a list
of every conquest, bed post notches
He's a feminist, quick to submit
Suspends judgement, takes whatever he can get

Why does it bother you when I talk about the war?
Do you throw a fit because it's in your backyard?
It's a tragic twist on the classic cataclysm, a rift
in the pretty continuum of sophisticated conflict.

Why would you take the side of a guy who puts his chips on the villain to win?
You're giving in, giving out ammunition to the kids
and the weapon is a deadly dose of bliss
That's ignorance with arrogance, no common sense,
the epitome of pitiful, it's the fact that you go for his argument
which smacks of a lack of self-respect

And you, you've got a whole lot to prove
You sit and watch his every move
Yeah all this time I'm impressed

He's dangerous, quick with a fist
Takes every opportunity to take a risk
Talks with a lisp, walks with a limp
When he isn't starting fires he's off starting shit.

We've got your name in a database
You're under surveillance
Never leave a trace

You should listen to me when it comes to foreign policy
I'm a walking wikileak ready to scream
I got some bad beef, I'm packing heat
under the collar I'm volatile and rising to a high degree

You should listen to me, expert in endocrinology
Swimming in your bloodstream, making it steam
I got a mean streak, I'm packing heat
under the great wide open wait and see
Track Name: Bear Battle of Wolf Crystals pt. II
Come away, come away, fall away with me
Come and play down here with me
Your father was an honest man, he never meant to leave
Don't be afraid of what you see
Come away, fall away with me
I've always wanted to show you
He's nothing but a superstitious apparition walking through the trees
But never wanted you to know

Poor child, your father's gone. How are you now to hunt and kill your own food?
Poor child, your mother's gone too. What on earth are you now supposed to do?

My old man said your old man don't know nothing about what it was like before you and I had started to fight

Say you prayers alone.
It's only your fate to decide child.
Track Name: Electricity
Buzz all you like
It won't do you any good
You're spread so thin
between your poles

You like it when it's night
cuz all is well that ends
But you lean into the light
Like your life depends on it

Electricity

You're hiding in the walls you built yourself
Investing all your energy into your guilt
Afraid that your good's not good enough
and friction's building up
Then you shock anyone you try to touch
and the cycle's perpetuated

Electricity

Out of phase with the trending wave
Are you charged enough to get away
with any power at all to save for when your circuit breaks?
The choice is on or off.

Before you lose your way forgive yourself the noise you make
It's not a show of strength to dim your brightness for someone else's sake
Lessen your resistance to our help, we know you'll overthink your faith
Find the ground, accept the weight of your slow and painful change.

Out of phase with the trending wave
Are you charged enough to get away
with any power at all to save for when your circuit breaks?
You're blacking out.
The choice is life or death
plus or minus
The choice is on or off
Track Name: Ready About
Vices operating me

Ready about

I wanna ask you a simple question
How do I put up with my own moral corruption?
I wanna know how to get past and through
And what exactly as a man I am supposed to do
To sever the ties, affix a new direction
Or am I forced to forever relearn the same lessons?

So that's it I'm leaving
No I can't hang on

Cast off I wanna try
packing bags I leave tonight
May a beacon always shine
no choice but to travel through the night

Sitting on the sides, water bubbling up, I'm in trouble double-crossd by the misdirection
No telling east from west with no sun to set, I'm letting doubt come down to cloud my senses
Sucking the tide, flying the signs, racing an approaching storm as the wind is rising
Am I trying to hide from my insides, is it a lie or is it time to ride this tempest?
A crackle in the sky again, I take another vitamin and see the southern eye open as pulses quicken
Stick a stick in the wind and my skin goes tight, there's a lightning strike and I can see the instant
Checking the time, awakening in all the water, thought I'd better be better than I was before,
going out of my home alone and rolling only where the wind blows/
making eyes only open wider as the wind blows

Cast off I wanna try
packing bags I leave tonight
May a beacon always shine
no choice but to travel through on

And it's along way around
and it doesn't get any easier
but don't give up when you get sucked down
there is a gull out there somewhere

A light on the water line is open there for all to see
Flashes on the starboard side are open right in front of me

Past your lighthouse it was: cold and lonely

Why are you leaving?
For the right reasons?

Past your lighthouse it was: bring the boys back home

Life's a strong man's game
Who have you to blame?

Past your lighthouse it was: Take your burdens with you

Why are you leaving?
Take what you're given

Past your lighthouse it was: Open sesame

Strange as it may seem
we're not so different

Past your lighthouse it was: clear and open

Why are you leaving?
For the right reasons?

Past your lighthouse it was: bets are off forever

Give what you're given
Time to deliver.
