Track Name: The Calm
Instrumental Track
Track Name: Oppenheimer
They cried four years is far too long
Only total destruction shall do
The decision was carefully made
The chief's soul it shall heavily weigh
That warm calm day the Buzzards took flight
In their bellies they held a light
One which no humans could survive

They cried,

Save our children use the light
Save our children use the light
This was the day our humanity died
The day the sun fell from the sky

A brilliant flash, a crushing thunder
A smoky mass, lit up with color
Impressed all with beauty and wonder

Save our children use the light
Save our children use the light
This was the day our humanity died
The day the sun fell from the sky

Save our children use the light
Save our children use the light
This was the day our humanity died
The day the sun fell from the sky
Track Name: Given Good Times
So you tell me that you are tired of waking up to everyone screaming
About all the stupid things you can’t remember from last evening
Whenever you opened your mouth only venom spilled out
Dressed up in simply the finest, you made the room scream and shout
Fixed on your most recent affair, you’re a stranger to all who were there
Lost to the lights and the crowd, you’re such the big shot now

And I’ll sell my soul tonight
to the first good looking thing in sight
God damn I don’t mind, so long as I make it to sunrise
Given good times I know these things will kill me from inside
And good god damn I don’t mind
so long as I enjoy the ride

You partied will all the pills in such a shameless display
Inhaling all of your thrills, your nights just drift on for days
You know you can’t keep up this pace living out of a carry on case
started with such a hungry heart, now you’re just a hollowed out space
Impressed by your blank glare. What does it take to get there?
Lost to the lights and the crowd, you’re such a big deal now

And I’ll sell my soul tonight
to the first good looking thing in sight
God damn I don’t mind, so long as I make it to sunrise
Given good times I know these things will kill me from inside
And good god damn I don’t mind
so long as I enjoy the ride

And I’ll sell my soul tonight
to the first good looking thing in sight
God damn I don’t mind, so long as I make it to sunrise
Given good times I know these things will kill me from inside
And good god damn I don’t mind
Track Name: Tiger
I don't mind if you don't mind
We all need an escape sometime
Feel your skin against mine
Don't you want to feel our bones intertwine?
You came here intent to impress
with the way your body hangs that dress
Guide my hand Velvet Caress
Scream out now, “Make me a mess!”
Yes all you want, Yes all you see
Are all the terrible things you'll do to me
Oh darling you've been the best
So carve your name into my chest

You got me feelin' electric
Our bodies are charged and going frantic

I don't mind if you don't mind
Desire like this can't be denied
Explosive by design
It's only natural and in our spine
You got my skin set afire
And all we can do is only conspire
to tear away at each-others' attire
This is a lust only we can inspire
Yes all they want, and all they see
Are all the terrible things you'll do to me
Oh darling you've been the best
So carve your name into my chest

You got me feelin' electric
Our bodies are charged and going frantic

Oh don't you panic
Oh darling you're finally just feelin' alive!
Track Name: Shine
Though your back is broken
by the hour sell your soul
And if school taught us anything
it taught us to aim low
Your feat lie in ruin
by the space your forced to fill
And if you had your way
that list would have a lot less left to kill

Though your free time is stolen
by the statue you've become
You'll try your best to buy it
what sinful things be done
Well still you're over stressed
and you know you're sleep deprived
Quit your damn complaining
cause' you've got to work until you die

Well I know that I don't perform the way you ask me to
Well I know that if I don't shine, well neither do you

I'm so tired though I will not sleep
cause' there are voices dragging us into the deep
With their pretty little lullabies pressed against our lips
They drag us to the guillotine while counting in our chips

Well I know that I don't perform the way you ask me to
Well I know that if I don't shine, well neither do you

And though our backs are broken
You'll never take away the soul
You didn't teach me anything
I didn't already know
You can keep those promises
your trying to shove down our throats
All that I have, I got own my own

Well I know that I don't perform the way you ask me to
Well I know that if I don't shine, well neither do you
Track Name: Valley of the Lizard King
When your mind is not stable
Oh when your soul is not able
The desert wind whispers, “I am here.”

I am a stranger to this strange place
With the weight of the desert sun upon my faith
I fought to ascend the blazing red peaks
My only comfort was the warm valley breeze
It said,

When your mind is not stable
Oh when your soul is not able
I am here

As I stood atop the jagged cliffs
I thought of why I came to this
The Valley of the Lizard King
Beckoning inside of my dreams
I was hoping to find your clues
to evolve into something new

When your mind is not stable
Oh when your soul is not able
The desert wind whispers, “I am here.”

The desert wind whispers,

When your mind is not stable
Oh when your soul is not able
The desert wind whispers
When your mind is not stable
Oh when your soul is not able
I am here
Track Name: Catharsis
As I stared at the mass of colored lines on the LCD
it came to me that all these things were all I had left to speak with my passing friend
And mama said, and mama said...

::Instrumental Intro::

Learn to love
Learn to live
Learn to love
Learn to forgive

Cuase' everything
oh yes everything
You see and feel
You think is real
Even you and me
It's all temporary

Give all your love away
Don't worry no one is judging you dear
Give it to all you know
Don't worry no one is judging you hear
Give it before you go

Learn to love
Learn to live
Learn to love
Learn to forgive

Give all your love away
Don't worry no one is judging you dear
Give it to all you know
Don't worry no one is judging you hear
Give it before you go
