01. Bodies In Flight 5:17    
You're free to choose what we want you, feel free to do what we want to

When we collide, the air will rise, it's all that you will need it for before you go
When the day wears you, create simple lies, when the day wears you, be simple lies
Sleep well my dear, sleep well my dear, bodies in flight

You're free to choose what we want you, feel free to do what we want to

Slip in to your dreams, the air will crash, hovering in a perfect sphere, we'll watch you go
When the day wears you, create simple lies, when the day wears you, great simple lies
Sleep well my dear, sleep well my dear, bodies in flight, little or no movement

When you say love, I know that you mean hateful, boulders of spite ridden love decay
A mansion in an easy disguise of simple lies, boulders of spite ridden love decay
02. The Ideal Height 3:41    
You've opened the door to reason, without invitation
Forget what you had, it's vanished - except for the minions
But we'll scratch away to find the ideal height

How well do you think that you know me? I'll tell you now, I didn't even mean it
Circumstance predicts I, slim the main

We hope that you don't remember instructions of heaven
Cos' everyone has a purpose, even the minions
But we'll scratch away to find the ideal height

How well do you think that you know me? I'll tell you now, I didn't even mean it
Circumstance depicts I, slim the main...make the strain go away!
03. With Aplomb 5:29    
Fix my new memory with a cold naked stare, chew up the words but with floods beware
Fondness can escalate beyond my repair, chance is the fiction will orchestrate despair

Again, these hands blow dry but I can handle it again, these words collide but I can handle

Happiness is coated in a mindless kicking, let's fall apart, get up high and leave

Again, these hands blow dry but I can handle it again, these words collide but I can handle

Kill your bizarre mindset, fuckhead, soldered to a three-layered concrete brainwave castration
Walking backwards home with you
04. A Day Of... 2:24    
I get my drugs from God oh yeah (oh yeah), you should see the shit he's got oh yeah (oh yeah)

And then it starts, a trip of a lifetime, our spaceship up against yours
A war on drugs would surely bring...

I get my drugs from God oh yeah, you should see how high I go oh yeah (oh yeah)

The 'shrooms kick off, the trip of a lifetime, when lovers see more clearly?
I'm sure we're on a ride to a day of love and religion!

I'm drifting in a blackness of ideas, colours, movements, kapow, kapow, kapow!
I'm drifting in a vacuum of ideas, colours, movements, kapow, kapow!
05. Liberate The Illiterate/A Mong Among Mingers 5:28    
Don't be sad, keep smiling, leave this open to communicate

Lying there on the desk you left a letter, when I touched it, it shivered in my hand
I rub the surface to see your face in the mirror, translation lost me in a crowded room

Leave exposed the wounded, look down kids it starts to decompose

Looking for some meaning or recognition and your eyes are as blank as my hidden heart
I rub the surface to see your trace in the mirror, translation lost me in a crowded room

If you want to believe everything you say, it keeps you high and in control
What I can't understand is why you would want to give the impression of a young lost soul
In the end you lack a stance on important subjects that you've lost, it's like you're out of control

Then you turn round, my head cracks like it's for the millionth time again (Liberate the illiterate)
And you wanted to jump half a canyon, I'm at least a companion to it all (Liberate the illiterate)
06. Diary of Always 4:04    
(I just wish we all could betray)

I'm the one distinctly plain to you, for a solemn glance is another hopeful taste

Did you wish for your pain? Did you wish for your pain?

Wish I could have faltered, wish I could have changed

I'm the one distinctly plain to you, for a solemn glance is another hopeful taste
07. Questions and Answers 4:02  
Grab a handle, twist it 'til something drops
You're up when you're winning, you feel like your head's gone soft
Even though we spend our time without a chorus

Little twitches give him a special edge
You can't understand it, transparent and soft in the head
Even though we spend our time, now here's the chorus

You've got all these great answers to all these great questions

Take advantage of the sound, lean in to walls leading to minds

You've got all these great answers to all these great questions (Still I feel them passing me by)
You've got all these great answers to all these great questions (Try to understand)
08. Eradicate the Doubt 4:26  
You are the summer, I'll feel forever, I'll bleed forever
You think you are the greatest, I'll feel forever, I'll bleed forever

Think that the circus is friendly it's more like a mutual interest in a nosebleed, think again

Scared of the now, take all the air, look out dear, stick up kid, take all the air

I'll bleed forever, I'll bleed forever, I'll feel forever, I'll bleed forever

A-list with an alias, eradicate the doubt

Tackle heat it's in a cool cold slipstream that you will not find
Caught in a high speed hateful procedure

Scared of the now, take all the air, look out dear, stick up kid, take all the air

Sometimes, you'll dare to become forever and provoke the fear inside you, awaken

Take me to your heart, take me to your heart
09. When The Faction’s Fractioned 3:36    
Today's a blur, little baby, been up for days, waking up, waking up
Devised a plan, little darling, to split the sky, fade away, fade away

The time is running out, the time is running out

We'll fade away little baby, make no mistake, to half as much, half as much

The time is running out, the time is running, the water's running out, the water's running
The girl is running out, the girl is running, the girl is running out again

We can leave this faction and start our own, no-one will take it over, no-one
Start our own and show them backward to the sea
10. Toys, Toys, Toys, Choke, Toys, Toys, Toys 5:28  
Would you change, I have, fallen in love with you, anyway
(We suffer, we suffer, I suffer, we suffer, you'll suffer now)

Have a dance, I will easily lose it anyway
(We're dancing, we're dancing, I'm dancing, we're dancing, your dancing now)

Love makes some things taste good not all just you I love your style you hate my lies
In time always you suffer

In the shadows of your eyes you look like God, I will be right here
When your life's been shattered, embrace your emotion, I will be right
If even the stars, fall from your eyes, revolve as they burn in the night
Reach with your mind, never goodbye, take me away from you all

Winter's long dance, lovely construction, it's all a part of you now
Watch it implode your ghostly possession will always possess you

In the shadows of your eyes you look like God, I will be right here
When your life's been shattered, embrace your emotion, I will be right
If even the stars, fall from your eyes, revolve as they burn in the night
Reach with your mind, never goodbye, take me away from you all

Infinity lies! Save yourself!
11. All The Way Down: Prologue Chapter 1 6:43    
Taking part's what counts, but you were not around,
never understand my goals for you
Looking back, seems that everyone in my life, I will be waiting for you
I will be waiting for you until the evidence conveys another side

You'll never understand my hopes for you
Sleeveless in miniature, monster overture, never be complete unless you know
Looking back, seems that everyone in my life will be waiting for me
I will be waiting for you until the evidence conveys another side

Have you found your way home? Have you found your way?

I feel wondrous, controlling me seems like a good idea
I'll do my best to uphold you, but I know that in the night
Ever wonder if it's forever, the moment passes, but I feel you now

I feel wondrous and holy and I know it's all right
I'll do my best to uphold you and I know that in the night
Ever wonder if it's forever, the moment passes,
but I feel you now, all the way down

So I'll try not to breathe as I hold my head still,
the light bends on my face, there'd be tears if I cried
And I'll try not to think what the happy things were
I just think of the stuff that just made me shit scared
And I'll just close my eyes and I'll see everyone
that I'm leaving behind for the dawn of the sun
And I'll try not to feel, yes I'll try not to feel,
and I'll try not to feel on the way down
12. A Man Of His Appalling Posture 3:25    
Conglomerate inspection, we'll breed that infection, release it to the world
We'll blame it on the girls, we'll blame it on the boys, again, again, again, again
Taste the infection and tolerate rejection, we'll feed it to the world
We'll blame it on the girls, we'll blame it on the boys, again, again, again

Then you try and you're faking it, open up cos' you're faking it
But in time everyone, and they'll know, goddamn you'll know
Feels like everything's a farce, take it on your head

When you're faking it, open up cos' you're faking it
Wait for a time, everyone, you'll know, Goddamn you'll know!
Feels like everything's a farce, take it on your head
13. Now The Action Is On Fire! 8:01    
I'm cagey about stories involving time, it's like I'm slowly burning, breathing crimes
This is all right, burn the action now, tell me how you feel, burn the action now

Rotations take hold, clear but filthy cries
This is all right, burn the action now, tell me how you feel,
burn the action now...this is all right, all right

When the inner energy pollutes my soul with selfish needs
and small conspiracies unique from loyalty
And over and over and over and over and take all I have
and under and under and under and under and
Could you make it any easier so we can set this on fire

This is all I have and over and over and over and over and, take all I have
And under and under and under and under and
And over and over and over and over and take all I have to decide and all I have

We'll change the world how we want to, we'll change the world inside you
You changed the world, you changed the world,
burn the action, burn the action, burn the action now!
- Ewen's True Mental You - Hidden Track      
Can't help seeing what I have with the non stop bickering involved
Believe in what you know, no we'll never separate

Can't fail seeing what I have with the non stop bickering involved
Believe in what you know, no we'll never separate

Can't help being warm no you can't help being warm
