Track Name: Ananke
ananke, troublemaker
fate incarnate, undertaker

my papa's telling me
what you got is what you got
but mama's telling me
who you are is who you're not
you're not
you're not
you're not
you're not

ananke, mother figure
father Time, primal trigger
Track Name: Cold Beach
i'm sitting on the cold beach, looking out at the sea
i'm sitting on the cold beach, looking out at the sea
i'm sitting on the cold beach, if it really is me

i'm lying on the cold beach, looking up at the sky
i'm lying on the cold beach, when the birds go by

and they sound like this
Track Name: Heatwave
now it's summer i just want the sun
i'll scratch until my hand comes back with blood
one more gin and tonic then i'm done

now it's summer i just want the sun
my head is gonna blow up like a gun
all these tourists don't know what they've done

now it's summer i just want to die
when i see the sun i want to cry
but i can't do it cause the air's so dry
Track Name: Fat Liver
remember when i used to complain
that every song sounded the same
well now i don't think so
remember when i used to believe
that i would be the best there ever could be
well now i don't think so

remember when i used to think
that i was gonna be the next big thing
well now i kinda doubt it
remember when i used to complain
that i would never have fortune and fame
well now i don't want it

cause you can die on the hill of your ego
when it crumbles into the sea
or you can make a lot of money and have a whole lotta friends
by just being who you're gonna be
(well now i believe)

remember when that band got big
and i would say their shit was starting to stink
well now it doesn't matter
remember when the music would end
and we'd all want to hear the same song again
well now i'm gonna do it
Track Name: Power to Kill
mama it's dark in here
there's nothing but a neon sign flashing
"you are not good enough"
it's mounted on a black podium with its roots in all directions
i've got the power to kill

baby it's dark in here
i'm scared of the way i treat you when i'm angry
i don't know myself
there's no light switch on the wall so i can't see what's in there
there's no kindling for the fire so i can't see what's out there
but i've got the power to kill
Track Name: Rocket Ship
me on my rocket ship
comin' down from an ego trip
meet me on my rocket ship
let's go where the planets flip

spendin' every second alive
know it's just a matter of time

me on my rocket ship
put on your suit 'n let's take a trip
let's travel on my rocket ship
till the earth's just a little blip

goin' so fast!
seventy million miles an hour!
spendin' every second alive
know it's just a matter of time
Track Name: Laser Island
i had a troublesome experience at
laser island
i tore my tendon running far away from
laser violence
the sun came up on burning oil fields at
laser island
i had a troublesome experience at
laser island
Track Name: Not Sure
i've heard the stories
don't believe them no more
i haven't seen them with my own two eyes
so i'm really not sure

you don't know what tools they got
you don't know what they think
they could suck your brain out your skull
you wouldn't even blink

you were watching t.v.
when they reached the shore
strapped up modern navy
a hundred million more
i heard they can steal your soul
but i'm really not sure
Track Name: The Garden
this is poison
this is your soul sucked out
by centuries of lies

this is the garden
has not been attended to
this is your simple pleasure with purpose

i could walk
barefoot in the water
if i had thicker soles

this is poison
this is your mind warped
by centuries of metamorphic lies
Track Name: From Russia With Love
ooh
this dewdrop world
is just a dewdrop world
but here we are
ooh
you fool me once
and you fooled me again
this time

but i've let it go too far, let it go too far, this time

queen
is a crazy dream
don't wanna ask for help
for my self-esteem
oh girl
you can run the world
and you'll never know
where to run to

but i've let you go too far, let you go too far, let you go too
i've let it go too far, let it go too far, let it go too

feed
puts me to sleep
with no top sheet
russia in my dreams
and i believe
in the power of love

i've let it go too far, let it go too far, let it go too far
Track Name: Yr Heaven
don't know what i want
but i know what's good
i want to live in heaven
don't know if i could

the angels know me better
than i know myself
they know what i want
and i don't want heaven

i'd like to see it
just for a while
i'd like to see heaven
so i know i can smile

but the angels know me better
than i know myself
they know what i want
and i don't want heaven

i want you
Track Name: Strange
In the summer of your life, when the trees are full of birds
And their sounds are like a song, will you understand the words

In the autumn of your life, when the leaves begin to change
Will you listen for the wind, let it bring you to the strange
