Track Name: Break Up Break Down
Break Up Break Down

I drag my belly off the four walls
blind the lizard once and for all
Stare into the future running from the past
running running fast nothing lasts forever

Break up break down break me break out


Broken teeth and rusted suit case
don’t need a brand new shoe lace
Brush away the sunshine hiding in the night
hiding from the light nothing lasts forever

Break up break down break me break out

Scattered weather for all the things we owe
They don’t remember us for all we know

I drag my belly off the four walls
blind the lizard once and for all
Stare into the future running from the past
running running fast nothing lasts forever

Break up break down break me break out

Track Name: Thin Blue Screen
The Thin Blue Screen

Don’t mistake me for yourself just pretend I’m someone else and I’ll be waiting
I’m a shadow in the dark a paranoic superstar and I’ll be waiting

Wrap yourself around a thin blue screen
Maybe they wont hear you scream alone

There’s a beast behind the wall it’s the demon in us all and it’s escaping
Running from eventuality you cannot feel what you cant see

Wrap yourself around a thin blue screen
Maybe they wont hear you scream alone

I’m all around but you don’t understand me unhand me
You don’t realize who your messing with
Guessing I’ll be twisting it bringing it to tears
It’s clear the reason that I’m here keeps you living in fear

Like a puppet on a string
I will make you dance and sing
Controlling you is easy, for me its easy, yeah it’s easy
So leave well enough alone I’ll eat you out of house and home
Controlling you is easy, for me its easy, yeah it’s easy

I’m a master of a pawn you’re gonna miss me when I’m gone but I’ll be waiting
Running from eventuality you cannot feel what you cant see
Wrap yourself around the thin blue screen
Maybe they wont hear you scream alone

Track Name: Smoke
Smoke

Hazy hazy drives me crazy
Makes me work and makes me lazy
Sunny sunny ain't it funny
What happened to all my money?

Wait to wait pay to play
Suddenly she spoke
Can't you smell the smoke?

Cloudy cloudy makes me rowdy
Makes me sure and make me doubt it
Baby baby don't say maybe
What have you done for me lately?

Wait to wait pay to play
Suddenly she spoke
Can't you smell the smoke?

Sleazy sleazy make me queasy
Why you always got to tease me?

Bit by bit
Line by line
Piece by piece
Feels so fine
Wait to wait
Pay to play
Suddenly she spoke
Can't you smell the smoke?

Track Name: Forget You
Forget You

I can't remember to forget you
Whenever I look back I'm torn apart
And it's amnesia that I lack

I think I've seen your face before
The mention of your name and my mind plays tug of war
I don't now what I knew then
And I don't realize that I can't do this again

I can't remember to forget you
Whenever I look back I'm torn apart
And it's amnesia that I lack
I can't remember to forget you
I should only draw a blank
But every time my memory comes rushing back

Should've seen the writings on the wall
The clues were all around but of course I forgot them all
I jog the corners of my brain
For some reminder that I'm very much insane

I thought that my love was dead and gone
I know you're not the only one
You've got control
I wasn't told that you would own me

I can't remember to forget you
Whenever I look back I'm torn apart
And it's amnesia that I lack
I can't remember to forget you
I should only draw a blank
But every time my memory comes rushing back

Now what am I supposed to do
When everything I see is reminding me of you
I can't replace what hasn't gone
I can't return to you if I cannot carry on

What's here tomorrow is gone today
Why can't your face just fade away
I've come unglued, I've been tattooed
I can't forget you

I can't remember to forget you
Whenever I look back I'm torn apart
And it's amnesia that I lack
I can't remember to forget you
I should only draw a blank
But every time my memory comes rushing back

Track Name: Big
Big

I just wanted to thank you
For taking the time
Making me feel like I'm the one

So Where are you going to
Is it a dream
Or all just a part of the master plan

Take what you see
and put it all together
No you're not the only one
Oh the spotlight burns
You got your chance now take it
It's amazing
When you make it Big

See It's all part of the showdown
Standing in line
Dropping a dime in the wishing well

Now you got what you wanted
Pulling the strings
All of the pretty maids in a row

Take what you see
and put it all together
No you're not the only one
Oh the spotlight burns
You got your chance now take it
It's amazing
When you make it Big

Rock me off to sleep
Knocks me off my feet
Now you have the attitude
And only you can make it Big for me

I got a crush and I'm dying to make you
I get a rush when you're up on the scene
Electric chair and a bottle of hairdo
Shove comes to push
bottom line is you got what it...

Take what you see
and put it all together
No you're not the only one
Oh the spotlight burns
You got your chance now take it
It's amazing
When you make it Big

Track Name: Scapegoat
Scapegoat

There's nothing you can tell me I don't already know
It's my best defense
That's why I'm pleading guilty to a crime I might commit
It's my only chance to escape my wrath

I know it makes you cry but I need an alibi
So I hang myself out to dry
Tell the truth to lie

I'm moving backwards, I blame myself
'Cause I'm my own Scapegoat, I'm in a rut
I point the finger right at my self
'Cause I'm my own Scapegoat
I'm off the hook

Don't misunderstand me, I don't practice to deceive
I just need some reprieve for this life I lead

It's only smoke and mirrors when I tell you what you want to hear
'Cause I'm trying to get to there from here
Now, isn't that clear?

Don't make excuse for being a loser -- No!
Don't want forgiveness for such a sickness -- Oh No!
Eternal penance, eternal sentence -- Oh Yeah!
I'll say I'm sorry but it won't be the last time

An ounce my prevention is worth at least a pound of yours
So here I go again. Will it ever end?

Track Name: The Walls Invincible
The Walls Invincible

Now what am I supposed to believe in?
Somebody changed the face of God

I'm staring through the eyes of anger
Can't figure out just what I've lost
All I know is that it don't make sense to me

They found a hole in my suit of armor
Put pressure on the weakest link

The walls invincible come tumbling down
Now what am I supposed to think?

All I know is that it don't make sense to me
All I know is that it don't make sense to me

Me, I'm the only one who can face it
Me I'm the only one who can change it
See all the lonely ones who are crying
We aren't the only one's who are dying now

So take your Buddhas and your Bibles
Take your Temples and your Shrines
If that's what makes you do your killing
Then stick 'em where the sun don't shine

All I know is it don't make sense to me
All I know is it makes no sense to me

Me, I'm the only one who can face it
Me I'm the only one who can change it
Me, I'm the only one who can love you
Me and the power in heaven above you
See all the lonely ones who are crying
We aren't the only one's who are dying now

Track Name: I Am The Walrus
I am he as you are he as you are me
And we are all together
See how they run like pigs from a gun see how they fly
I'm crying

Sitting on a cornflake waiting for the van to come
Corporation teeshirt, stupid bloody Tuesday
Man you been a naughty boy. You let your face grow long
I am the eggman, they are the eggmen
I am the walrus, goo goo goo joob

Mister City Policeman sitting, pretty little policemen in a row
See how they fly like Lucy in the sky, see how they run
I'm crying, I'm crying
I'm crying, I'm crying

Yellow matter custard dripping from a dead dog's eye
Crabalocker fishwife pornographic priestess
Boy you been a naughty girl, you let your knickers down
I am the eggman, they are the eggmen
I am the walrus, goo goo goo joob

Sitting in an English garden waiting for the sun
If the sun don't come
You get a tan from standing in the English rain
I am the eggman, they are the eggmen
I am the walrus, goo goo goo joob goo goo goo goo joob

Expert textpert choking smokers
Don't you think the joker laughs at you? (Ha ha ha! He he he! Ha ha ha!)
See how they smile like pigs in a sty, see how they snied
I'm crying

Semolina pilchard climbing up the Eiffel Tower
Elementary penguin singing Hare Krishna
Man you should have seen them kicking Edgar Alan Poe
I am the eggman, they are the eggmen
I am the walrus, goo goo goo joob goo goo goo joob
Goo goo goo joob goo goo goo joob
Goo gooooooooooo jooba jooba jooba jooba jooba jooba
Jooba jooba
Jooba jooba
Jooba jooba
