Track Name: Venom
You've moistened your lips
You've moistened your lips with the venom of anger
The thickness of your chill is too frosty to ignite

I saw for the very first time two lovely islands
They seemed to share one facade

You, oh yeah, you
Moistened
You moistened, you moistened, you moistened

I saw for the very first time two lovely islands
They seemed to share one facade
You, you, you moistened, you moistened

I saw for the very first time two lovely islands
They seemed to share one facade
You, oh yeah, you, you moistened
You moistened your lips
You moistened your lips with the venom of anger

I did drift for a time
But I'm back now
With the taste of a mind
With the taste of a mind

You moistened your lips
You moistened your lips

You moistened for the very first time
For the very first time
For the very first time

You moistened your lips
For the very last time
Track Name: The Lovely Leading Ladies
The very purpose of a dangerous pose
Is what they want before a fight

Overlooking the stark sea
Is the chaos of feelings
The chaos of feelings
The very purpose of a last ending

Come across the island and you'll find
The lovely leading ladies
They will catch you by surprise
If you don't watch your ways
The lovely leading ladies

The very purpose of a dangerous pose
Is what they want before a fight

Overlooking the sea
Is the chaos of feelings
Is the chaos of feelings
The very purpose of a ending

Come across the island and you'll find
The lovely leading ladies
The lovely leading ladies
Oh they'll catch you by surprise
Oh they'll catch you by surprise
Oh they'll catch you by surprise

I began to wonder what took you so long
But then I remembered your obligation
It's the nucleus of your manipulation
It's the nucleus of your manipulation

The lovely leading ladies
The lovely leading ladies
The lovely leading ladies
They'll catch you by surprise

Come across the island and you'll find
The lovely leading ladies
They'll catch you by surprise
They'll catch you by surprise

The lovely leading ladies
The lovely leading ladies

They'll catch you by surprise
They'll catch you by surprise
Track Name: The Machine
Complexity in the machine
Floating on, gears turning
Complexity in the machine
Face the shock, fears rising

Demanding a shift in the cluster of what once was
But when the cup is full and feelings are gone
The cloud slips away and we see
The machine

Complexity in the machine
Floating on, gears turning
Complexity in the machine
Face the shock, fears rising

But when the cup is full and feelings are gone
The cloud slips away and we see
The machine
And we see the machine

Processing the challenge of what once was
Fearing the worst has never felt quite like this

Complexity in the machine
Face the shock, fears rising
Fears rising
Complexity in the machine
Gears turning, floating on
Gears turning
Floating on, face the shock

The cloud slips away
Complexity in the machine
Gears turning, floating on
Gears are turning
Turning, turning

Never felt quite like this
When the cup is full and feelings are gone
The cloud slips away and we see
The machine
Track Name: 20 Million Hours
The attention to detail astonished her words
Creating reversible solutions
That woman was worlds above

Your mood may be diluted but if only to speak with her child
And I'll no longer wonder about the 20 million hours
20 million hours

There's a golden room some place somewhere
Where she hides away
Where she goes to sleep
And she wonders about the 20 million hours

Creating reversible solutions
That woman was worlds above
She's too creative for the black and white world
This scientific world, it's without it's might
It's black and white
And without it's might

Your mood may be diluted but if only to speak with her child
And you'll no longer wonder about those lonely 20 million hours
Those 20 million hours

There's a golden room somewhere some place
Where she goes to hide
Where she can rest
And she doesn't have to worry about anything
About anything
About anything
About anything
She doesn't have to wonder what life brings

She's creating reversible solutions
She's creating reversible solutions

20 million hours
They're all long gone
20 million hours
As I sing this song
20 million hours
20 million hours
20 million hours
They're all long gone
They're all long gone
20 million hours
They're all long gone
They're all
They're all long gone
Track Name: My Afternoon Nap
Where did it all go?
Where did it all sleep?
Did it sleep in a hut
Or in a tent by the lake?
Where did it all go?
Where did it all sleep?

I went searching
I went searching

I took a path in the woods
And I found a raccoon
And he told me where to go
He told me the place where a lot of people sleep

So I took a backpack
And I took my tent
And I found a place where I could take my nap

My afternoon nap is something I cherish greatly
I demand the highest of sleeping

So after a while
I was finished my nap
Mr. Raccoon asked me a question about where I was from
I told him that I was from Tennessee
And he said, "That's kinda funny!"

So am I!
I'm from Tennessee
Comin' down here to Georgia
Why don't you sing a song with me
And this was the song
That the little raccoon
Decided that he would sing with me

I found a path where
The raccoon showed me where
I could find a place to sleep

So I did
I took my nap
I took a nap with my trapper cap
Track Name: Wishing Well
I walked to an open field and looked
I saw the wishing well
I remember it so well
There's a rocking chair
Near the wishing well
And I can remember my grandmother sitting
In the rocking chair
Really close to the
To the wishing well

The other day I walked to the wishing well
And I saw a scary sight
It was her ghost
Near the wishing well
With the rocking chair
Swing back and forth
And I had so many
So many memories
Of my grandmother and the wishing well

What we would do
What we would say
If we were both
Still here today
Track Name: Responsibility
Woo Yeah, Woo, Yeah, Woo, Yeah
Woo Yeah...
Wake the neighbors up (x 4)
{May repeat}

I saw for the
The very first time
A stack of papers
A mile high

Paperwork?!
I don't want no paperwork!
I just wanna go home and drink my latte´

When I sit in the cubicle and look around
I see all the people just like me
They're all drowning
With Responsibility
They're all drowning with a little thing called responsibility
Responsibility
Responsibility
Responsibility
Responsibility
Paperwork and responsibility
Responsibility
Responsibility

Gotta take care of my cat
Gotta take care of the laundry, too

Cubicles
Robotic
Robotic life
