Wise 06:17
Christ what have you done? The gates are open wide The animals have made home In our hearts and minds So the world turns And I can't be free I'm ashamed of the consequences All and you have read is all you have to say It's worth nothing these days All the gold in the world Takes a part of you I am stunned by what my eyes can't see All of you so confident and sure Cursed by all your gods Broke the will of ours And if you don't believe That life begins in memories Dance upon their beds Screams beyond the pines Make some distance for yourself From your mental health Grand design I opine Shame on you for being so wise Cursed by all your gods Broke the will of ours And if you don't believe That life begins in memories And it all falls down And it all falls down And it all falls down And it all falls down In a truth

In Panic 05:52
Burning contents of tape Rediscover your hate I saw the rose upon their grave and swore to her it wouldn't happen again The gods who like to run our lives are waiting for the chance to become Impressive Important Impersonal I'm in panic Will you see how they fell Drag my body to hell I took a chance on watching it begin to grow before my very eyes I laughed and sang and wept and still I can't concern myself with these things Impressive Important Impersonal I'm in panic

Come plug me in Increased pressure Fall far from it Take a good look Now that we see Hide your moral centre and be Something new and gracious An animal A rejection of everything and us all We can't recognise The mistakes we made in the past Ones we're making now I assure Everyone that comes on their knees Will be saved by your heart Eyes closed (I become the reasonable excuse) Now that you've come out of your grave We understood the words you tried to say

My city is empty, my city is glass It’s selling the daydreams of the middle class They sit on the curb, while they gather the dust An empty display looking back at the rust Under the bridge is where you’ll stay I see the faces look away Under the bridge I know you hurt I wish you well For all it’s worth Under the bridge Who’s knocking at my door? No one Who’s knocking at my door? My city is walled, made of hoarding and chains When we send out the cheques, it’s like severing veins Never worry for them cause we’re worried bout us Get declined at the store, get declined on the bus Under the bridge is where you’ll stay I see the faces look away Under the bridge I know you hurt I wish you well For all it’s worth Under the bridge My city’s corrupt but my city’s alive Put a price on the land, put a price on a life It throws a bone to the mud, and says it’s good news It wants us to bite, but we can refuse Under the bridge is where you’ll stay I see the faces look away Under the bridge I know you hurt I wish you well For all it’s worth Under the bridge Under the bridge They try to look away from you Can’t get away They can’t get away from you

Swim in artificial seas Pavement shores, sleight of hand Current carries our weight so easily Everything is just pretend Rivers slowly drifting down Pleasure in knowing there’s no way out Everywhere I go I can hear you calling me Harder to say no I can hear you calling me again Traded youth for a silver leash Sturdy desk for a picture frame Wait in line to feel like a better man After time forget my name Future slowing, coming down Nothing and no one to guide us now Everywhere I go (Everything, just pretend) I can hear you calling me Harder to say no (Everything, just pretend) I can hear you calling me again

about

It's New York 88, Jason is feeling good about his debut record and the fame has gone to his head. He spends those cocaine nights recording in an even more advanced studio, banging out esoteric hits for an audience that simply wasn't ready.
