Track Name: Dysomnia
I can't sleep, It's been a week, or maybe more
These sleeping pills are for thrills and nothing more
Am I asleep? Am I awake? Real life seems so fake
I can't do this. Any more. Never. More. Any more.
Track Name: Fade Out or Die Away
Wasting Away, Muscles Atrophied, but I feel ok
Fading Away, There's nothing inside of me,
but I feel ok. Today.

Floating away, feels like I'm high again, but it feels ok
Down on the Floor again, I must be drunk again,
but it feels like home and I feel ok. Today
Track Name: Self-Immolation
I wish that I could be like you
See the world like your eyes do
feel the way that you do
I would feel
nothing at all

I wish that I could be like you
See the world like your eyes do
feel the way that you do
I would feel
Track Name: Somniloquy
From this height the only way down
is to retrace your steps but I'm tired of repeating myself
Instead I look to the crowd, I stretch my second hand
wings and I pounce

Keep your faith or else you'll drown
my faith was gone by the fourth floor
and now I'm tumbling down
face first into the crowd

Why can't I fly?
Why do you watch as I fall
Fall to the ground?

Why can't I fly?
Why must I fail?
Why can't I fly?
Track Name: death of marvel
Take all the time in the world
take all the time you need
take all your time from me
just take a look around
Track Name: hidden track
<sometime after ):33>
I've got a seed that grew into a tree
and that tree went and fucked someone
at Rangitikei
That tree ran away from me
and everybody can see
that Nichole won't stop fucking with me

All I want is a root
Is that too much to ask
You fucked my best friend Caleb
at his beach pad
do you have to be drunk
cos I'll buy you a drink
all I want is a fuck
Is that too much to ask

And your sweet loins
doused in sweat
dripping down your thighs


just fucking quit
I'm sick of your shit

pass me your fucking phone
so I can smash it

<Indistinct Screams and Yells resembling some sort of epic lyrics>
