Omnipotence 03:55
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

Wrapped Up 01:31
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

Flinch 02:28
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

Strangle 02:36
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

Fairytale 03:33
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
