1.
in a convalescent vacancy and you, you're dissolute removed from such elusive worth i'm divorcing you from me swinging spade-tip where the wood splits near the earth you don't have to hide at a painful distance i can't move for these roots the world reduced to kicking rocks in deep soliloquies in a forest without leaves you don't have to run in fear i can't breathe they're choking me our arrogance like chains at lengths to let me drop beneath your weight between your arms a vacancy

The Idiot 04:28
every chemical bound in visceral restraint turning knobs and going off i run my hands along the wall every syllable like braille every consonant, it breaks the skin beneath my nails building like an animal building like an animal infected little mind the mouthing off from our ticking clocks push the awkward pause the start and stop, the start and... how do you hold it all in your hands without closing them? without closing them? how do you hold it all in your hands? in your hands? in your hands? building like an idiot building like an idiot turning knobs and going off

Limbless 05:03
i pick the locks in every room but i find myself in the places you've approved where i give my arms for better hands but you give me nothing to hold onto, yeah in here, we are responsible but only outside, we're getting mean your new heart's unfaithful and capable of anything somehow we all can deny that we're fit for a padded room and the sweetest of our thoughts are quick so the awful ones don't get through somehow we feed our expressions like we're moved but we only let on when we're jumping from the roof in here we are civilized and only outside, we're getting mean your new heart's unfaithful and capable of turning... in here we are in here we are responsible and on the outside, it's obscene my new heart's unstoppable but my blood's not listening in here we are in here we are the writers but we only write screenplays and in here we are the dancers but our legs got in the way

In Low Light 03:34
you blur, the dim loses something we were and then we were nothing this is not a place this is not a path to change our fate i am loudest in my cage when it tears off our limbs we lose the feeling well, you can build your walls and my ceiling 'cause this is not a plea and it doesn't glorify our history and it won't leave i am bound because you're free it means nothing you blur, the dim loses something we were and then there was nothing
5.
nobody cares enough if you sleep at all, ever again nobody sees enough when you're posed and unimposing how can you stand to be known to be known for too long, for too long without end? and i hit the wall hard enough to make noise but you're faster i watch it when i can how can you stand to be on to be on for too long, for too long? how can you stand to keep on to keep on when the world wears out and it's bigger than you can imagine? i want to get lost in a hotel skyline steal some air from that height away from anyone, from anyone ​ 'cause the louder i feel, the less i move and i can sit here if it's all i do, yeah for too long, for too long, for too long
6.
peace, resound, you've thrown me out take comfort in our photographs take anything you need and dry my eyes and trace your steps back to every perfect place we meet tell me this has got to end and the trouble is, i see you in your chair and something's going to change believe for what i cannot see and now it's time to know
7.
Interlude 03:06
play on for easy kills in your kickback in your arcade of weak wills where you've scratched at the names we've built like one is policeman, another is guilt and i can't wait 'til we have holes in our heads and we play pinball where every now and then something gets said if it slips out if it's heavy where the food breaks the plates that we put out and everything's fake like the monsters you read about it's like we're all the same age for now so lay down your bulletproof vest we'll pick up our arms and plant one right in the chest and i can't wait 'til our bodies collapse and the papers print histories where it's all up for grabs where no one is enemies and i'm brave and your hands are clean
8.
Passing Out 03:41
with your big mouth and teeth you've mowed down the trees we're going to swallow the lake if you leave yeah well, if we look the same it's 'cause we're both in chains from our act under glass, insane so please, if something starts to happen fill your lungs and try to breathe you're too close, if something's going to happen to this world, then... so what the hell do we do now with our co2 and the hollow ground? 'cause my hands can't hold it all in our atrophy, with these extra pounds so please, if something starts to happen fill your lungs and try to breathe you're too late, if something's going to happen to me if we are not the strength that tore the earth and filled the lake if we are not the strength then, this is it, then, this is it
9.
designed weight we keep from floating off well past the marks pull the cords across and sink in what we all forgot in what we all forgot you're fooling yourself i've struggled to see what a future would say that we were better off some other place? that we were better people? or better fakes? you're fooling yourself drag the lake so i can breathe, so i can breathe you're not coming back and that's the way i want it this is what we wanted you're fooling yourself

11.
it's just you and the dark for filling up your arms with pictures out of magazines you've cut out all the shapes, you've put them all away now i'm the heir to history and that's not fair, it talks like you it used your words, it wears your clothes and it won't leave it won't leave i found a new way for filling out the space with shadows out of bad dreams it pulled me from the leaves and with a weighted head i found a trick for vanishing and i waited there, i talked like me i used the same words, i wore these clothes and we're not going back oh, the things that won't return we're not making history to walk out on the plans a thousand miles in reverie to kill you where you stand ​ it all disappears it all disappears
