Track Name: Third Eye
My third eye is buzzing
My stomach is rising
My stomach is falling
I’m sprawled on the floor

Bent into shape
Losing out to the tendencies
That latched and entered the room with me

She just wants to turn off her mind
Hell I wish I could turn on mine
Keep repeating and repeating “everything is fine”
Oh what I’d give to be able to float out of here
There was a time when she couldn’t love me and I know he had something to do with it

Now I’m awake but my eye can’t see a god damn thing

No need for doors
Transcend the ceiling
And repurpose all the air I’m keeping in my chest
It seems pointless
All this unrest

Twist out the toxins
Don’t let them sink in

But I’m stuck on this floor and it ain’t worth leaving
Track Name: Young Man Down
I feel like one hundred dollars.
Spent.
I feel like one hundred dollars.

It’s hard to put your money where your mouth is;
to fill your guts up with dollars and cents.

So quick before it packs up
And pays the cheque
Become the richest man in town
This state can keep a young man down

Emptied out to feel full
Laid out at a crossroads
Nothing left to pay toll

Froth spills over and
Covers all the tables again
This state can keep a young man down.

It’s going quick, that’s the last of it.
