Who 03:56
Who loves you when you’re down? Who loves you when you have no one? Who takes you in from the cold when you’re sad and low? Who will always be your friend? Do you know? Who loves you when you’re bad? Who loves you when you have no one? Who loves you when you’ve got no home to go to? Who loves you when it’s all gone wrong? Your soul is a soul on fire We’ve seen your blaze so many times You’ve been so separate from other people Your fire keeps you from people I find you running nowhere Distressed beseeching… Who will love you when you’re down? Who loves you when you have no one? Who loves you when’re isolated and stateless? Who loves you when you find you’re in a rage? Your soul is a soul on fire We’ve seen your blaze so many times You’ve been so separate from other people Your fire keeps you from people I find you running nowhere Distressed beseeching… Who? Who? Who? Who?

Exhume yourself Assume you've been... You see we're saved Rushed in time A lost face A certain "gee whiz" I want to be like you The king of something And you know she's lonely She says she should be sent to town She's closed and slowly Seizures come on as you wants to go down A "kidocent" Shoot soon For your disposal I feel I'm glowing I love it here, but... I've done the social Made music in time Wrest an old tune And make it sound obscene All around this town Bullets in the sand They kept it all the same She's cold, she nods Ease in to the rusting, I say Come over to the romance of beer Her motion says she can be a star Rest it on a rest assured It's simple enough I see Carved out You scream at me - why bring it up? You shut Your cake-hole No one Makes these things up
3.
Giving Back 03:51
If we’re not helping each other Then what are we doing? If we don’t take care of each other Then who do we care for? There always must be give and take We all know that taking is easy For all the withdrawals we make Returns show that we care It's not all about you, you know And most of all We should be giving to the world And not just taking away It's not all about you you know
4.
Clean Out 03:16
Are they the finest Or the lowest? Way too much power To our richest Our vaunted leaders Love their status Our filthy rulers Act for themselves alone Let’s clean out Those richest people They’re not the freshest We need to clean out the bowl Humans Too long in power They Rot like corpses And should be shoved in a hole Concentration Of wealth and power In too few people Is a real danger to us all We must address this Failed compact Take real action And wrench the power to save us all

Beat Me 04:06
He bore his soul She falls asleep She got it easy But she don’t see it I’m doing nothing I’m doing something Must’ve done something For you to do me I’d sooner sooth things You’re all I need I’ll give you everything ­ no less Song, tick Song, tick Jesus, I dog-gone I'm lost in the red: drowned Hunting and killing He sees that there's nothing To hunt in the lost zone My eyes stuck in treacle Bounding and tousled And sleeping alone Do you see me? Don’t do you do nothing To prove you don’t need me You don’t want to do me Don’t you sit sulking Its soaking the children Don’t do it solo: You fucked up and beat me Bleedin' and pushin' I'm aching for baby She cuts and she slits And she fucked up and beat me You saw that fucker Who knows you and hates you Abiding with lovers Who don't want to take you And... We're still in love I'm your out-there man I'm still in love here With empty hands I'm still in love And I still love you But you fucked up You fucked up and beat me And so... You taught me a lesson You so-and-so You found me depressing In the calm I say to the darkness "If you loved me Then why would you hurt me? If you loved me Then why would you hurt me?"

Doin' all the things You said we shouldn't do You lived like Kings You said we shouldn't do it Your apostles on the take You said that you don't mind We loved you Why don't you love us? It's true It's true Praying in our corridors Kneeling at your altars Pilfering our handbags Never leaving us alone God, you're getting caustic Your pious, hell-filled rants You were loving all good children We should've watched your hands Dishin' up this dope For me it isn't easy Stop praying for a second So we can beat the hate out of you You see you've been the king of traumas You locked us in a dark room When something felt like fun You said "don't do that any more" Tell me what's your problem Controlling all good women Afraid they're all laughing at Your God-Boy's little prick You can keep your dumb "beliefs" We don't need them any more Your shocking toxic nonsense Chills me to the core Praying in our corridors Kneeling at your altars Pilfering our handbags Never leaving us alone Dishin' up this dope For me it isn't easy Stop praying for a second So we can breath Dishin' up this dope For me it isn't easy Stop praying for a second So we can beat the hate out of you

Shellman 04:14
Time sure is time The way we pass it is a crime Time spent with fools And characters in my mind I would be free Without my mind I know it’s not mine Finally undermining me so Slack brains are born Sailing by the seed Can’t hold the reins You gave them all to me I wield the reigns I can't hold them now Can't hear the thrust Makes it all go black again Pushing the cheese This man is all a man Watches by the mantle Singing in the rain Well I can be free Handle the strain Busting your reigns Catching the train Going all the way Going all the way Burn, oh Stand by the river's edge Burn, yeah Standby the river's edge Well I’ll be the first Shellman in space Cannot be traced Look at my face An empty disgrace

Gotta Dump 03:57
Gotta dump the ones that hold you back Take 'em to the door and kick 'em in the ass Say "I'm not the guy who wants to be near you I'm not the guy that needs to be with you" Gotta dump the ones that hold you back Kick 'em in the ass, give 'em a heart attack Say "I'm not the guy that wants to be near you I'm not the guy that wants to be you" Gotta dump the ones that hold you back Say "I'm not the one that wants to be near you I'm not the one that wants to be seen with you I'm not the one who wants to love you" Gotta dump the ones that hold you back Say "I'm not the one that wants to believe you I'm not the one that wants to see you I'm not the one who loves you" Gotta dump the ones that hold you back They're not ones that want to love you They're not ones that want to be seen with you They're not the ones who need you I need you Gotta dump the ones that hold you back They're not the ones that want to love you They're not the ones that want to see you They're not the ones that want to be near you Gotta dump the ones that hold you back They're not the ones that want to be near you They're not the ones that want to see you They're not the ones that want to be with you Gotta dump the ones that hold you back Gotta dump the ones that hold you back Gotta dump the ones that hold you back Gotta dump the ones that hold you back Go dump the ones that hold you back Go dump the ones that hold you back Go dump the ones that hold you back Go dump the ones that hold you

Anxiety 03:43
Nightly We are frightened By the things that we observe Fretting With our loved ones So many things we can’t control Our nightly news shows Drip with evil In this world there’s so much to fear Anxious for our children We’re apprehensive Even when we sleep Clearly To combat chaos We search for patterns to dull our fears Anxious We search out logic To keep out danger when it seems near Our nightly news shows Drip with evil In this world there’s seems so much to fear Anxious for our children We’re apprehensive Even when we sleep

I know the lost and found They’ve been around They live in this sausage factory They love their children just like me They’ve been enticed into the trees along the way They’ve seen some things they don’t Want to see You beast of burden Tantalisingly closed Do the things you don’t deny you have to Don’t you love it still? Talking now Taking now Doing now Talking now Thinking loud Do it now You were talking too much Were you talking too much? Are we loved? Or are we just fools? Or are we just used? This doomed silly child Will be the last to know The dark and dust Will shroud your story It’ll do him no harm to lose his glory You did, you killed You can darken your paws You hide you from you as much as from it Stay clean and all Now who can know you? The bad you do And your talk of the need And no man will give you Anything to be the worst you can be When we are lost and alone When we're sitting all alone When you're sick and tired Of the fight to survive I was summoned to say how I feel
