Track Name: I'm Off / I'm Gone
a secret concussion poison my bread
I was too far gone too have heard what you said
it's not alive and it is not gone
everything is just so unfortunate
crying and holding the night away
maybe it'll be better on the next day
dark blue street walking on a pretend joke
but that's all about to change

because I'm off
I'm gone

Know there is no future for the nomadic tribe
walk another block and contemplate leave
mix up the letters when I'm reading the sign
but that's not the bottom line
strutting to the station nowhere near out of breath
I could go for miles I've got hope in my head
pumpkins on the ear, I am pumped up
didn't lose a thing when I gave away my stuff
Track Name: 1,000 Symbols
the writers of an anatomy book
up against one thousand symbols
she's so lovely but it's not lovingly
it's not the same
Track Name: Traveler
like when you used to think you acted so paranoid
and you're thinling more and more that you're right
when the intellectuals that take up you, boy
keep you in the middle as passive sides
choosing not to take part with those who hold opposition to them and
staying secure with their closed minds
like when you're bringing up a flaw in society
and getting that flaw in return

let's coast the galaxy
see what's temproray

I pledge allegience to the fears instilled within me by my mom and dad
and to the republic by which it's spawned one nation under god with hypocracy and hubris for all
amen
(Nicolas Healey)

I believe in you
but what is really real
to us?
Track Name: Image and Feel
walking through some dark abyss
advertised to me when it was mist
the memory of some forest scene
where the given plot never took place
and the experience I'll never see
as the sun fits into the sky like a key
my essential feelings don't make sense
the refreshing waters of the pond have been sensed

the image and feel behind it all
reached by the sounds that don't stand tall
the mamory of some forest scene
where the given plot never took place
and the experience I'll never see
as the sun fits into the sky like a key
my essential feelings don't make sense
the refreshing waters of the pond have turned teal

and I'll fly a way for a while
and I'll try to get a way for a while
and I'll try to get away
