NEMO 03:01
i can’t explain the feelings more than i can justify them and when you come back screaming please excuse it I don’t buy it it’s just a shame that when the game is up you tried to hide it so i’ll just fold my arms, and call out for some peace and quiet i’m no one we’re nothing but my mind keeps on running i’m no one we’re nothing but my mind keeps on running i’m no one we’re nothing but we’ll all die for somethin’ i’m no one we’re nothing but we’ll all die for somethin’ come on (repeat) let it be come on (repeat) no, it can’t be come on (repeat) it smells like failure come on (repeat) you know i can’t fake it i’m lying in bed wishin’ that I didn’t have to get up when i’m on my way i fight the urge to give it up and run at the end of the night the things i wanted seemed so far removed do i have to change? or ask myself what do i have to prove?

BLACKTOP 02:24
at night the lights with stars shining round you’re by my side as the pedal comes down bang, bang, and the road gets closer still and you are going to ride with me bang, bang, and the road gets closer still we’re gonna kill this night it’s the kick behind your teeth as the speed; washes over me i feel so goddamn angry bang, bang, and the road gets closer still and you are going to ride with me bang, bang, and the road gets closer still we’re gonna kill this night on the blacktop baby i’m on the blacktop baby i’m on the blacktop i’m on the blacktop i’m on the blacktop i’m on the blacktop i’m on the blacktop the blacktop the blacktop the blacktop the blacktop blacktop baby

SICK SH*T 02:59
the plans are made and i’m an architect plotting out the project on this plot of land my heart is swollen and i feel so sure that in a thousand years my memory will be secure my body my mind on time by design by design by design by design mistakes are made as they’re wont to do but the bass is laid and it will hold true and flaws are there and plain to see bare witness to the natural dichotomy of preservation in the face of death i know that there’s an end but it won’t happen yet and when it does i won’t be afraid ‘cos what’s the use in fearing how the whole world’s made? my body my mind on time by design by design by design by design

VEILS 05:09
i don’t feel good enough i mean i never feel, confident unless i’m going off the cuff but then it feels just like an accident, just like an accident so when you tell me, that i inspire you i feel like a liar i feel like a liar i feel like a liar but i know that i’m wrong, that it’s all in my head that doesn’t negate that no one can relate and when i ask for help there is no escape this veil, is gonna leave me, suffocatin’ suffocatin‘ this veil, is gonna leave me, suffocatin’ suffocatin‘ i can’t take it off, i can’t take it off i can’t take it off, i can’t take it off i can’t take it dose will dissuade me like my higher brain should though it serves just to calm me complication is good so i tremble before you while you remove what i hate i lie naked before you your hunger to sate so i throw off the bed sheets while you take off your clothes this isn’t the first time baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, baby, anything goes and i know it can’t last, in the morning i’ve got to leave complications be damned ‘cause baby baby baby babe i need a reprieve this veil, is gonna leave me, suffocatin’ suffocatin‘ this veil, is gonna leave me, suffocatin’ suffocatin‘ i can’t take it off, i can’t take it off i can’t take it off, i can’t take it off i can’t take it

ES NUEVOS 03:17
there’s no obligation to live is to trust so i do what i’m told because i’m told that i must when you work in the pattern all you see is the thread and you hope that the tailor takes your interests to bed there must be something new there must be something better too there must be something new there must be something better too es nuevos; es nuevos; es nuevos es nuevos; es nuevos; es nuevos es nuevos; es nuevos; es nuevos es nuevos; es nuevos; es nuevos and so i tear up my notes and forget what i know i cut it back through the causeway to the bitter unknown and if i’m not gonna make it then at least i’ll have tried we’re under no obligation but we’ve all gotta die there must be something new there must be something better too there must be something new there must be something better too es nuevos; es nuevos; es nuevos es nuevos; es nuevos; es nuevos es nuevos; es nuevos; es nuevos es nuevos; es nuevos; es nuevos
