Like a child hiding from the thunder and rain There's creatures inside my brain And the crumbling ruins of forgotten days It's always just been this way So I ask you to breakfast to emancipate I couldn't've anyway It's just I don't have the stomach for this unclothed feast Because there's creatures inside my brain There's creatures inside my brain I head into the ocean where the charts don't see To counter my thoughts on fate And maybe search for a clearway through these pressing clouds But the pressure begins to amount Words fill up my vision, fill the space within They echo and stop fading And then the liquid air whispers, it says, “oh, no, no” There's creatures inside my brain There's creatures inside my brain So won't you hold me together cause I'm out of phase I wanted to change my face Yeah won't you hold me again because I'm out of phase

The City 02:49
The Lizard lost its home Within the firing zone I saw the world before me blacken 'til I was numb to the bone The City is so unholy Consumer rhizomes Twist beneath the silent first blood Shooting forth their mirrored bones Jagged high-rise-on Jagged fashion blondes Jagged rips, the sound that spews forth Locking down our conscious thoughts But I can hear my hearts harp sing “You better run, you've got to redefine the signs” I turn to look at me I see a million trees I see a billion creatures smiling I see the world unfold Cause I don't walk alone No I don't walk alone
3.
Heard you coming through the doorway Tried to leave but it was too late Stoned, the scent of you sank through me Reason drowned inside the fog. Turned to touch but there's no feeling Choked your name, disrupted stillness And now I'm crawling through the backstreets Everything is coming down. I searched across the deserts Mirrored waves of my (your) denial Screamed my way through sex and silence I called and called, I need you, need you I need you, need you
4.
The Snyth 02:58
The Snyth it lives in a parallel place Where the darkness breathes through the structureless shapes That are passing through from our physical space Reverberates a lighter state Reverberates a lesser fate The Snyth is lost through its inner fear And the darkest thoughts could be whispered in your ear But the secret is only meant for you and for it They won't believe you If you repeat it They won't believe you So don't reveal it
5.
Agabago 02:54
Have you heard of Agabago He wakes at night He lives outside Agabago They say he was born out of his mind He talks to trees He talks to light Agabago One day he came and took away the night Our hearts were his The same for mine Agabago He was a solitary man Was a solitary man And he lived inside my heart We've been so far apart So if you see Agabago Just turn away Just walk away Don't stop Don't stop Agabago

faceache 02:45
Ouch my face aches I can't see straight I have salty eyes My brain's pushing On its cushion Shock waves in my mind You masturbate your ego Well I'm learning how to let go Your reasons are too much to buy You want an actual friend Well how can I contend with 5,000 supposed ties, ties, lies? Everything is left behind Oh, everything is left behind And I'm not looking for nothing To come fix this heart of mine Logging in to My pen friends to Generate some lies I pretend that I'm size 10 and I have sultry thighs Now, tell me, tell me, tell me That I'm super funny Just cut and paste some lines Silence, my retainer Bludgeon the container There's no silicon in human eyes, lies Everything is left behind Oh, everything is left behind And I'm not looking for nothing To come fix this heart of mine
7.
Expiry Date 03:55
We're in the shade A perfect place The lights go out It stays the same We're in the shade A subterfuge In every face The lies of truth We're in the shade A straining note A dying dream The missing race Down in the shade We're in the shade We've lost our way We're fading fast The time to change Is in the past Down in the shade We're in the shade
8.
Glossolalia 03:54
There was silence in the void Silence and nothing more Not the slightest little din Nor a tiny fluttering wing Could be heard in the forest that night And all the little animals were still Though they did not sleep There was silence in the void Silence and nothing more Step right up, oh won't you join me for a ride Through the silent void and to the light on the other side This tale is true, but quite unlike the one you've read There's endless facts to every truth, or so it's said Let's pick things up in the thick of the forest of the darkest night Where all the lands animals had been taken by a dreadful fright The bravest few gathered up their nerves and their waning strength To seek out Merriaduc, the all knowing singing wench “She'll make some sense” Oh' the Captain was the sharpest of the bunch He'd eat four Beatles for his lunch, just for his lunch He cried for Merriaduc whose tongue was quite absurd She spoke though her three mouths were filled to the brim with words And she said, ”My fellow captain, dearest animals now hear me We are the victims of a plot of lunacy This darkened shroud deceives and plays upon our fear But do not cry, we're not alone, we're not alone, oh can't you hear?” Deep amongst the slaters and worms The Creatures' voice was all that was heard (Glossolalia) And The Creatures' voice became the light And the animals all sang into the night They did not hide, they did not fear They let the light, their hearts grow near They thought not once of their fearful ways They all held hands and laughed and played And when the song came to an end They knew that it was dawn again

I unpack my bag My old Cheshire Cat Holds close my pain Come break my fall My fault It's not that I don't love you no more You're in my way I can feel it everyday I can't find my feet No nerve any more No more... Thought we'd be sailing Once more But we'll be sailing No more Just don't forget to look my way I'll call you first
10.
I don't want to leave the house today I don't want to leave the house I don't want to leave the house today I don't want to leave the house I don't want to step a foot outside I don't want to go outside I don't want to leave the house today I don't want to go outside Cause there's creatures falling around They're crawling each way Everywhere I go I don't want to eat my lunch today I don't want to eat my lunch I don't want to eat my lunch today I don't want to eat my lunch A made up, caked up impression Of the way I want to be I don't want to leave the house today I don't want to go outside Cause there's creatures and they're crawling around They're crawling each way Everywhere I go
