Track Name: Please Don't
Where I started
I started wrong
The line was dotted
Hey I signed it all away

Please don't knock on my door
I've been running this scene
Through my pristine mind
Please don't knock on my door I've been
Running from you for like 15 lives

This January, it was temporary madness
A morbid blow, oh am I down for the count?
Mister referee just called a TKO

You won't believe it
They think I'm God
Are you inspired?
They say the devil came down
The devil came down
And I'm so inspired

Please don't knock on my door
I've been running this scene through my pristine mind

This January, it was temporary madness
A morbid blow
Am I down down down?
Track Name: Colors Flashing
And all around me they're alive and dancing
'round and 'round
And all around me there were colors flashing
'round and 'round
I turn around and see my brother laughing town after town (2x)

And all around me there alive and dancin'
'round and 'round
And all around me there were colors laughing
'round and 'round
I turn around and see my brother laughing town after town (2x)

I've gotta take it in when it's too much
But then again it just isn't enough
I've gotta take it in when it's too much
spin in my eyes

If I could only hit a different stride
I'd bake in this cake fine
Track Name: Bending Engine
Tell my story
so that they'll see
I was there and it appeared alien.

Picked up where I thought I left it
But he came home for me
It came circling
He came home for me
It came circling
It shook everything

So I try telling me that I'm only seeing things
But when you're flying it's hard to tear these legendary seams
It's like I'm finding...you're always there my bending engine
Bending Engine
Track Name: Five Alarm
The genie of distraction is exactly what I've found
By no means is she worthless
I'm not cursin' her
But I've found

That a porcelain doll
Is a doll that's all

Those years were the happiest
I was clapping
Up had no downs
But now I've got to thinking
There's a kink in it

And that porcelain doll
is a doll that's all

By now I'm admittin'
apparitions are pulling my plow
When you're safe in my arms
I just know somehow

Without you I'd crumble
Still a porcelain doll
Is a doll that's all
Track Name: Up this Hill
Might wanna leave me alone
I'm on a mission mission
Might wanna leave me alone

This life is shapin' me into a heavy rock
I roll it up this hill

I've gotta carry it home
I'm on a mission mission
I've gotta carry it home
Track Name: Reasonably Extraordinary
Well listen I hear mission bells
Shut your eyes
Your ears will ring
Then open them
You are a jack of all trades
Reasonably extraordinary
like an actress we'll pretend
Emergency the final scene
I'm ready all the time

Doo-doo-doota-duh doot-doo
It's ok calm down

Perfected your prism smile
It's funny how your pun intends
To create a longer leash
Your particles have fornicated
with even your wisdom
Reasonably extraordinary
like an actress
We'll pretend

It's ok calm down
Track Name: Red
You say my will is too strong
Is that all it was?
Let's pretend there's nothing wrong
Raise your hands
Waive your guns

Is that all you've become?
I offered you so much
Come in, I've been waiting so long
Raise your hands
Wave those guns

I was the one who embraced you
when you were bad
They were the one's who chased off all you had
We have a crooked soul and that its that

Ooh you lost it all
It's not coming back
Track Name: Parachute
Just see me now
I'm traveling closer to the sky
Pressure building, then I will free fall
Eyes open
Eyes closin'
This is our time
I was hoping that I won't change my mind

(Chorus)
Before all the evidence was found
Our eyes were open
I hurl from the airplane at last
My parachute open
I hurl through the sky (2x)

The weaker ones are getting pushed off to the side
They say, "they deserve it, them and them alone"
Eyes open
Eyes closin'
"They didn't try."
As if it's something you decide

(Chorus)
Track Name: All Eyes
these sticks and these stones hurt when they're thrown
they hurt more than they mean
when your swimming upstream
when you drown in a daydream
I mean I'm in a daydream
You can't drown in a daydream

It consumed you straight through
found her dress in his room
you found a ticket to nowhere
and this game isn't fair
you say, "love is a nightmare"
I mean I make it that way
you can't live in a nightmare

(Chorus)
All eyes forward as I'm looking back
You're easier to find
rain is pouring in the lake of fire
You're easier to find

these sticks and these stones hurt when they're thrown
they hurt more than they mean when you're swimming upstream
when you drown in a daydream
I mean I'm in a daydream
you can't live in a daydream

(Chourus)

I throw a few things overboard
take my paddle and my old canoe
I'm gonna see if there is something I can find
Track Name: Pitter Patter
bulldog, don't come 'round here anymore
pulling on my chain some more

But I hear the sound the pitter patter
falling in a line
I hear the sound
the pitter patter won't run dry

It's easier when you don't say a word (2x)

bulldog, don't come 'round here anymore

and I'll lead you now
I will not surrender without a fight
'cause I hear the sound
the pitter patter won't run dry
