Track Name: Omnipotence
dream
an impossible dream
dream you are the god
of your world as it seems

what would you do
if nothing could stop you?
what would you do
with nothing to prove?

and after a while
when you're bored and you're tired
when you'd like a surprise
what would you do?

how do you breathe your air
how do you grow your hair
without trying

how do you beat your heart
how do you beat your heart
without dying
there's no denying

that you're omnipotent

answers come in time
you still don't know what you're trying to find
just let it all unwind
see what happens when you don't try

to make everything mean something
to feel the need to be something
why's it gotta mean anything
why's it gotta mean anything at all

when you're omnipotent
Track Name: Wrapped Up
he says i want to
but i don't even know
if this is really you
or if it is all for show
and yeah i know i can get a little out of touch
but you know i told you it's been a while since i felt this much

and yet somehow i still haven't figured out
what it is about you that is keeping me around
but who says i
even need a reason why
no i don't wanna fall for you
but i'm always down to try

but it's so confusing
why i'm so wrapped up in you

she says fuck off
you know i'm not your little girl
before i met you i planned to take over the world
so yeah i get scared when my life flashes before my eyes
but then i look at you and i start to sympathize

with our own swimming pool and barbecues with friends
white picket fences and adjustable beds
oh i see it in my head now
as a place to settle down
but i know in reality it's just a runaround

but it's so confusing
why i'm so wrapped up in you

it's just so confusing
this totally consuming you
Track Name: Flinch
to have and hold
forever now
that's what you tell me it's all about

the endless hunt
with the same result
something to bitch about to the friends back home

how can i be
like all the rest
staged photos of life over which to obsess

how can i build
the perfect home
have you thought about spending some time alone

and there's always a brand new lame excuse
a reason you can't change what's in front of you
flinch up when you come across something new
cause you don't know what it is or exactly what to to

whine and suffer
struggling to fit in someone's shoes
can't even appreciate
anything you have cause it's not you
run in circles to your tomb
wondering what i think of you
if you want the truth i think you're lost
in the space between the haves and the have nots

whine and suffer
struggling to fit in someone's shoes
can't even appreciate
anything you have cause it's not you
run in circles to your tomb
obsessed with what i think of you
if you want the truth i think you're lost
in the space between the haves and the have nots
Track Name: Strangle
the first time i saw you
i knew right then and there
that you were someone
of which i should be scared

cause we locked eyes
from like a thousand feet away
and i woke up to
that image every single day

i never wanted to say
all of these things
to keep you from running away

remember when we floated
towards the holes in my ceiling
and i couldn't fight
the strongest ever feeling

saw my head on your body
dropped my jaw to the floor
truly this has gotta be something more

i never wanted to say
all of these things
to keep you from running away

and the last time i saw you
i couldn't even speak
you were spouting so many lies
i just didn't know what to think

but sometimes i remember
and i wonder where you are
wish i could forget you
least stop picking at my scars

i never wanted to say
all of these things
to keep you from running away
Track Name: Fairytale
it's kinda hard to comprehend
how we think this world is dumb yet has a plan
it doesn't seem to make a lot of sense
i think we need to readjust our lens

cause nothing here grows without a perfect home
and yet we are afraid of the universe's tone
and we wonder why we always feel alone
but how can we be scared of a life we've never known

because we sit here
strung out on lies
struggling to understand why
it never seems to turn out right
obsessed with trying to figure out
what it's really all about
heads buried in a fairytale
common sense revolution must prevail

no i don't know what the future holds
it seems like just a concept that keeps us growing old
regretting all the things we never did
to tell the next generation just precisely how to live

submission leads to orders leads to living like a drone
but all we do about it is sit back and bitch and moan
and continue to debate what proper people should condone
it's time we stand up and use our backbone

because we sit here
strung out on lies
struggling to understand why
it never seems to turn out right
obsessed with trying to figure out
what it's really all about
heads buried in a fairytale
common sense revolution will prevail
