Track Name: Pilin' Up
Instant reincarnation no need to wait
A million little niches that won't communicate
It starts to take a lot of work to evade the state
Putting up with everything for as long as it takes

You don't get it
Shit keeps pilin' up
Don't forget it
We stay dangerous

There was a time there was a time when time could not be spent
And there's a hole there's a hole you've been existing in
And there's a point there's a point at which all this begins
And there's a hole there's a hole you've been existing in
Track Name: Anything You Want to Hear
Mirrors conceal everything
Nimble and spry guillotine
You've got your head in the breeze
Vanity of vanities

I'll tell you anything you want to hear
I'll tell you anything you want to hear

I've got my eye set on you
Trust above all your guru
Life consumes life, what can you do?
I'll give you something to live through

I'll tell you anything you want to hear
I'll tell you anything you want to hear
Track Name: Big Shot
History of narcissism
Overwork and egoism
Push on
Turn off
Drill down
Stay lost
Sign your name
Dotted line
Don’t waste my time son, abject creep slime

Well you’re a big shot, mister
But not for long
Thought you could fool your sister
But you were wrong

Am I sensing hesitation
Rousing in a daydream nation?
Tune in
Zone out
Pretense
Fear doubt
Hands up
Stay calm
Protect your wealth, patrol and firebomb

Well you’re a big shot, mister
But not for long
Thought you could fool your sister
But you were wrong
Track Name: Change Horses
Mary
Do it over
Pockets
Full of clover
Saw you in your well-appointed domicile
Speaking so correctly with a crooked smile
You know how it's going down
Time to turn this winning personality around

Change horses
They've got the gun on you
Strange courses
We'll do what we always do

Lady
Why so lazy?
These days
Pass so hazy
What were you expecting when I went away?
You can play the martyr if you wanna play
I'll call when it suits me fine
Drink up if you're so inclined

Change horses
They've got the gun on you
Strange courses
We'll do what we always do
Track Name: Caught Rabbit
Unbounded on the ocean you're on
Extended to the limits of vision
Dark
Light
Dark
Light
Shine bright
Dark light

You've got to eat the dream or wake from it
Run rabbit run or you are gonna get
You've got to eat the dream or wake from it
Run rabbit run or you are gonna get

Ambition only gets you so far
Divided from the purpose given
Dark
Light
Dark
Light
Shine bright
Dark light

You've got to eat the dream or wake from it
Run rabbit run or you are gonna get
You've got to eat the dream or wake from it
Run rabbit run or you are gonna get

Caught
Track Name: Outta Sight
Pay your rent in gratitude
Exposure is key, my man
Champion of boyish charm
Sleepin' in a garbage can

Catch me on my good side
It's going on the reel this time

Imbued with meaning
Serious seeming
Distraught upset again
Somebody lost a button

Catch him on his good side
He's got the top laid back

Spaced out
Rattled
Shook up
So uptight
Diggin' tomorrow
You know we blow all night
So far so far so far so far so far so far outta sight

What's with her new girlfriend?
You know she don't share drugs?
Last spotted on the West side
Chompin' at the Hula Hut

Burlesque daydream
Shit got kinda rough
Caught her on her good side
They say that girl's built tough

Unzipped
Upset
Messed up
So uptight
Diggin' tomorrow
You know we blow all night
So far so far so far so far so far so far outta sight

Spaced out
Rattled
Shook up
So uptight
Diggin' tomorrow
You know we blow all night
So far so far so far so far so far so far outta sight
Track Name: Warlock
Ambushed on the dusty plain
Murder in the pasta aisle
You never thought you'd have the guts
But this is what you bought it for
Giving in to paranoia
In no uncertain terms
But this is what you bought it for
This is what you bought it for

Tell yourself you didn't want to
Tell yourself you didn't try
Tell yourself you didn't want to
Tell yourself he had to die

Death looms
You wait
Death looms
You wait

Who made you the Sunbeam sheriff?
Where's your Ding Dong deputy?
Well here's another leap of logic
Moralized depravity

Tell yourself you didn't want to
Tell yourself you didn't try
Tell yourself you didn't want to
Tell yourself he had to die

Death looms
You wait
Death looms
You wait
Track Name: Real Searcher
Doin' acid lights at the Roky show tonight
Eatin' honeyslides until you're blind
Once I thought the world was mine all mine
Always ready Godhead got to stayed primed

He's long gone
A real searcher
He's long gone
A real searcher

Restless in pursuit of the divine
Careful with intention and desire
Once I thought the world was mine all mine
All accomplishments will lose their shine

He's long gone
A real searcher
He's long gone
A real searcher

He's long gone
A real searcher
He's long gone
A real searcher
He's long gone
A real searcher

He's long
Gone
Track Name: Looking for Love
Well I'm an ordinary guy
I like to go for long walks
And when I'm a good boy you can rub my belly
I've got tumors up and down my spine
Plumber's crack
Standing up
Fancy myself high minded
Time flies when you're the pilot
And I'm out looking for love

Not unlikeable, just unlovable
A trust fund cowboy
"I got the last laugh on you"
I lanvigate down the street
I care
I bought a fair trade toilet seat
I used to think that I should suffer
I thought you should suffer too
Now I'm out looking for love
