Track Name: Work/Worth
Work/Worth


doors open up, like hungry mouths
the feast gets served, the horde devours
the digits loath, you do a count
of what you deserve
month in month out
like sisyphus on a budget cruise
finding long lost feelings
in the mediterraneans
go vindicate your bitter fate
exuberant and crushed at once


ah
we're not trying to have it
all
just a piece of it, that's
all
blackened fingers, fidget souls
we're just people made of faults
at least so we've been told


go take vacation, from your vocation
could lose some pounds, you're loosing ground
on who you'll be, when you'll be you
lacklustre love, grate till it's true
join the razzmatazz, husky words you cough
mercenaries, hypocrisy
go drink it up your bitter cup
exuberant and crushed at once


ah
we're not trying to have it
all
just a piece of it, that's
all
blackened fingers, fidget souls
we're just people made of faults
at least so we've been told


and i know just what you'll say before you even go and say it
cause the numbers say that
and i know just what you'll say before you even go and say it
that there's two in four that
and i know just what you'll say before you even go and say it
with the chemicals and all that
and i know just what you'll say before you even go and say it
oh won't you go and shut up


ah
we're not trying to have it
all
just a piece of it, that's
all
blackened fingers, fidget souls
we're just people made of faults
at least so we've been told
Track Name: When Boys Grow Up
When Boys Grow Up

if this is just another story about the good and the bad cop
I'm not sure I care which one
is landing the sucker punch
I'm lacking the ambition for a better nutrition
but that's not to say that I
don't care about human kind

don't give up
I know that we're made of
much more than these
fast fading dreams
when girls grow up
they're told that they'll find love
now I'm not sure
just what that means

if this is just another story of the good and the bad boy
I'm not sure I care which one
is dying the lonely one
here comes another rendition of an old superstition
if we shall all sing a song
please make it a simple one

don't give up
I know that we're made of
much more than these
fast fading dreams
when boys grow up
they're told to toughen up
now we can't feel
just how it feels
to be alive
and to be scared to die
but I'm not so scared
when you're with me

don't give up
I know that we're made of
much more than these
fast fading dreams
when boys grow up
they're told to toughen up
now we can't feel
just how it feels
to be alive
and to be scared to die
but I'm not so scared
when you're with me
I know that I
could live a thousand lives
but this one seems
alright to me
yeah this life is
just fine by me
oh this live it's
alright by me
Track Name: As If This Never Was
As If This Never Was


Nothing that I did was right
I'll never change you
and you'll never change me
so long, so long


Just another time
had you bouncing on my mind
but there's no way back forth

Just another day
had our story on my tongue
but there's no way to tell
the skies above from hell


So come on, come on, come on
just leave these tears to roll
Now come on, come on, come on
there's nothing I can do
if you feel alone


Yours was just another face
I got used to have around
but that was not to say
that it would stay that way

One day the sun will burn us out
as if this never ever was
and who are we to say
that love should not be that same way


So come on, come on, come on
just leave these tears to roll
Now come on, come on, come on
there's nothing I can do
if you feel alone


Nothing that I did was right
I'll never change you
and you'll never change me
so long, so long
Every way I faced was back
I never change you
and you'll never change me
so long, so long
Track Name: Infinitesimally
Infinitesimally

Preconception's footsteps follow me
Cheshire cat whispers from its tree
not one piece is the place that it's supposed to be
Our canned fruits of sin dusting on our shelves
these late autumn dreams, they keep me tied to my bed
I still wanted to tell you what a good time I had


Well nothing was the way that it's supposed to be,
but everything it was perfectly fine you see


When nothing has a place, everything is in its place,
these things won't ever be that way that they should be
yet somehow we, now somehow we
See patterns in the shades of giants that precede
our roads they cross and twist infinitesimally
and somehow we, now somehow we
broke free


Your father was a soldier, conquering the universe
your mother never bothered to defend you
now my eyes they trace your frailty
Like lycra catching thunder,
wrinkled hands entangled in a storm
you're close now, come and follow me


Where nothing is the way that it's supposed to be,
but everything it is perfectly fine you see


When nothing has a place, everything is in its place
these things won't ever be that way that they should be
yet somehow we, now somehow we
See patterns in the shades of giants that precede
our roads they cross and twist infinitesimally
and somehow we, now somehow we
broke free


baby you just always care too much
baby you just always want too much
baby you just always need too much
baby you just always talk too much
