Just a Car 01:13
i darken the tint and give it power whatever the outcome, in rush hour it's just a car, i know i've lost i'm going to die in my mazda 'cause i can't drive, and i don't care for your rules it's just a car, i know i've lost it's just a car, i know i've lost

you can fight off entropy try and hold up certainty fate will get you in the end, it's true your money is mine spend a fortune at the bar wish a penny on a star it all ends up where it needs to be but only for me, and not you it all comes to me, and not you i want it the most, can't you tell? it trickles on down to my shoes i piss in my pants and you lose your money is mine and ah well deep down i'm a communist a real enthusiast for wealth redistribution, in fact your money is mine, and not yours your labour is fine, just be poor i want it the most, can't you tell? it trickles on down to my shoes i piss in my pants and you lose your money is mine and ah well

Siriscreen 02:55
memory, the story of my life doublethink, the way i know it is i don't recall a time we weren't at war with crime in my sleep, the clutter walks in line 101, the order of the time i swear that in my youth we weren't at war with truth the past erased, the time forgot their lies became the truth julia, the rest, we've got to say goodbye their lies became the truth ah well telescreen, the siri of our future telescreen, it cannot reach me now it's just a dream, but still they know somehow don't you call it a crutch my phone is not in charge crimes erased, acquittal by a few can't watch me, but i can watch you mistakes are in the past and so are ours at last the past erased, the time forgot their lies became the truth julia, the rest, we've got to say goodbye their lies became the truth my prison's of my choosing my prison's optional huxley's the drug i mainline soma's unstoppable and telescreen, the siri of our past

Irrelevant 03:13
they call us nobodies, irrelevant in turn they come across benevolent they don't want us that is okay we're a sentient irrelevance and freedom's overrated, what do you want? it's no life living as an individual they want us? that is okay we're a sentient irrelevance now i wanna be abducted by a mindless drone i wanna be abducted so i'm not alone i wanna be inducted to the hive in style resistance doesn't always have to be futile cubes across galaxies, i'm not aware of any reason we shouldn't be there we don't have to figure it out they already have for us and if i don't have to sleep ever again i would count that as a win they want us? that is okay we're a sentient irrelevance now

it's another way to live it's another way to thrive it's not be all and end all it's another way to kill it's another way to die it's not be all and end all why'd you have to say that? why'd you have to go there? and now you've ruined everything everything that we worked for she was the perfect the perfect actress she was invincible she was the perfect the perfect actress she's not replaceable don't you know
6.
On the Beach 03:17
wake up on the beach cool wind in my hair and when the sun comes up end of another new year's eve there's time ahead of us and time behind but looking to the future has never been as hard as this what will i see and where will i go? who will i be and what'll i know? what will i see and what will i do that's worth it? what will i see and where will i go? what do i care and what do i know? what will i see and what will i do that's worth it? that's worth it we're all on our own no savers in sight don't get in the deep end that's right, we're on the beach it's all the deep end rips everywhere stopping from drowning has never been as hard as this wake up in my bed damp air in my hair the sun has not risen time to get back to work and die a little inside holidays in mind but looking to the future has never been as hard as this
7.
So What? 01:10
it's 20-something and i cannot believe a thing they taught us not to be sceptical of anything advertising campaign so what? so what? an astroturfing campaign so what? so what? they got us when our minds were at their most malleable they snared us when our wallets were the most valuable
8.
i think i found it this changes everything you're gonna hate it it doesn't mean a thing i think i found it the missing link between their world and our world it doesn't mean a thing and everything oh yes i found it we dug it up and yes we are not human we are not dinosaurs we did not evolve we weren't a recipe of evolution the consequences of our DNA we are robots evolved we are robots evolved who have you told? this is our secret this is our mj12 the world's not ready they cannot help themselves we're not developed we were just ready-made and now we're stuck here with no hope of going home

i love atom bombs i love infernos i love asteroids i love volcanoes and i'm wrong, you're right i'm right, you're wrong you're right, i am wrong i love gerrymandering and televangelising i wrote this song 20 years ago but it still applies
10.
Expel (free) 02:12
i tried my best to get rid of you i tried to get someone else to pull the trigger i wrote these words but no one fell under my spell i wish you well now go to hell expel i wish you well now go to hell and if you think i have softened on you and come to understand what it is you do then it would seem that we get our news in parallel
11.
The Wait is Over (free) 02:15
if you're waiting for someone someone like you you could be waiting a long time why don't be true? now the wait is over no emotion is ever pure in this world realising the martyrs didn't die for you

Proaction 01:53
she said i was ready, what little she knew i've never seen combat, what little i knew actions, actions i fell for an attraction proaction, reaction actions, actions i don't believe in sanctions proaction, reaction the vision is crucial, what little she knew i need your approval, now matter how small, i do and all the best plans that you could have and all the worst people you could be and all the same it would end up, well it won't compare it won't compare
14.
Echelon 02:02
i am not essential, i am just a prophet in the back seat of your car siren of the newborn, acting as an echelon and my snooping keeps you safe from harm not a clue what you know about us now not a clue and just who the hell would know not a clue what you know about us now not a clue 'bout just where the hell we go speak your mind now pressure on our ears now, it was never my fault surely you can manage well without ever knowing, passenger interfering and my snooping keeps you safe from harm speak your mind or hold your peace now speak your mind or hold your peace now speak your mind or hold your peace now we know the truth, echelon we know the truth, echelon

you terrify me with your confident line you're everything that i wanted inside the pinnacle of this story of the criminal days, i am in love everything i say, underprepared and i'm not scared after all the second i laid my eyes on your beautiful blue skies and i'm not scared after all, and you should not be too because you terrify me as much as i terrify you you terrify me as the comets above the tremors below, and the climate to come the catalyst of this story of the criminal days, i am in love you terrify me
