Track Name: Algorithm
“ALGORITHM”

Outside, is looking kind of different, then yesterday, but hold on just a minute, while I catch my breath, I’ve been running all around, to find you, just so I can tell you a…

Secret, about me, you didn’t, want to believe, but you did, anyway, now I’m scared, that you’ll run away.

All alone in a corner, somewhere that’s isolated. Some say, I’m a loner, it gets lonely in my head. Do you really love me? Or do you just love the idea of me?

Last call, everybody scurries to drink, at the bar, nothing really matters, at this hour, you’ll dance the night away with us, and now, our, ears ring as I whisper you a…

Secret, to expand your, consciousness, understanding, complex, algorithms, present, all around us.

What makes the world spin, and what will happen next? When I am gone, who will write you all these love songs? And, are you afraid of dying? Or do you believe we’re invincible? Invincible…Invincible…Invincible…

Last verse, before we pack up our gear, and disperse, a cloud of smoke surrounds us, as we depart, the crowd is growing by the mile, so we thought, we should let them in on a…

Secret, melodies, embedded, in their dreams, we perform, for our friends, that we adore, this song is for them.

To the girl in the corner, hanging with her drunk boyfriend, to the lady in the front row, slurring every word that she said. Now come on let’s all go get high, so I can finally, go…to…

Bed, let’s go to bed, let’s go to bed, let’s go to bed, let’s go to bed, bed, bed, bed….let’s go to…bed.
Track Name: Don't You Know?
YOU KNOW?”

This is a cry for help, I don’t know how much longer, I can last with myself. Have you ever felt this way? Or am I just the only one? Or am I just a lonely boy, who’s lost and wants to find his way back home?

Kiss me, while I hold you in my arms. Is this just a dream? Reality is so cruel to me. Have you ever stayed up all night, crying over someone who’s at home crying over you? Sadness spreads like wild fire, burning in my heart.

It’s so, hard to fall in love, these days, don’t you know? It’s so, hard to fall in love, these days, don’t you know?

Thank you for being there for me. Romantic complexity, it stalks you like a shadow. You know we’re not alone, we are all in this together, and we’re in for nasty weather. Raining down, from the heavens, soaking everything that you own.

It’s so, hard to fall in love, these days, don’t you know? It’s so, hard to fall in love, these days, don’t you know?
Track Name: Blood For Fuel
There’s a war, going on, against those that don’t agree, with the way we invade countries, pretending to spread democracy. Imagine if, foreign soldiers, came a knockin’-knockin’ on your door. They’ll break in and kick you mother, as she’s bleeding on the floor.

But that’s not all, they’ve got their ways, drown you thirty three times a day. You’ll say just about anything, just to live another day. The TV news, filled with deception, alters every ones perception. He, who counts the votes, controls the outcome of the election.

Soldier, lay down your arms, and open your mind, the war machine’s fueled by your blood, and the blood of innocent victims. Without your blood, the war machine can’t run.

Toss your fucking TV goodbye, no more flickering, blinking lies. It’s called programming for a reason, like black spray paint on your third… I can see through you, hollow shell of human tissue. You’re no longer the same person that I knew, I’m gonna miss you.

A small group of wealthy swindlers, interbreeding with each other; They believe their blood is superior, it really makes you wonder. That could be how, wicked devils, try to knock you down, they like to laugh and revel, and they think you’re fucking stupid, and they think you’re a fucking pig.

Soldier, lay down your arms, and open your mind, the war machine’s fueled by your blood, and the blood of innocent victims. Without your blood, the war machine can’t run.

Truth to power, the spirit of change… Truth to power, the spirit of change… Blood for fuel.

Soldier, wrapped in a flag, deep underground, he died for a fucking lie. Soldier, lay down your arms, and open your mind, the war machine’s fueled by your blood, and the blood of innocent victims. Without your blood, the war machine can’t run.
Track Name: Escape
“ESCAPE”

Incredible, feeling inside. Let’s toss and turn, we’ll dance all night. Impossible, to ignore you, the way you smile, the way you move.

Your trust in me, no matter what. Some people thought, you would have given up. They said we wouldn’t, they hoped we couldn’t, now look at us, don’t you just love it?

Time stands still, imagination, you sparkle like a diamond. Make me proud, don’t give into temptation. Just keep your head up in the clouds, with me,

Majestic glow, from above. What to believe, when we make first contact? Our visitors, don’t understand, why we have guns, drawn on ourselves.

They speak to you, with static voices, it makes you tremble, you start to stutter. “We do you want with us?” “What did you come here for?” “Take me with you, goodbye Earth, I’m gonna miss you.”

Time stands still, imagination, you sparkle like a diamond. Make me proud, don’t give into temptation. Just keep your head up in the clouds, with me,

The things we take for granted, the days we feel alone, a sparrow watches over us. Has life lost all its meaning? Any sense of purpose at all?

The walls are closing, in around us. Don’t you wonder, how did we get here? Do you feel the, way I…feel?

Time stands still, imagination, you sparkle like a diamond. Make me proud, don’t give into temptation. Just keep your head up in the clouds, with me.
Track Name: Medicine
You’re the most beautiful girl that I ever did see. It’s the way you are, the way you talk to me. And, I know, that I can be a handful, and, I know, that I can make you upset, but, please believe, that I’m trying. It’s so damn hard, to make, everyone happy.

They say, “You’ll go crazy in a day.” But I said, that those people were just empty, empty, empty. And, you know, my greatest desires, and, you know, what I fear the most, but, please believe, that I am trying. It’s so damn hard, to make everyone happy.

What is happy? Where’s the joy? Am I destined to be alone? Where’s the medicine? I need medicine. The kind that takes away, all of the pain. Yes my heart, is split in two, and I don’t know, what to do, with myself.

What is happy? Where’s the joy? Am I destined to be alone? Where’s the medicine? I need medicine. The kind that takes away, all of the pain. Yes my heart is split in two, and I don’t know, what to do… Yes my heart is split in two, and I don’t know, what to do with myself…myself…myself…. with myself, with myself, with myself.
Track Name: Methodology
Are you ready to see things...
the way that I see things?
And if you want to be like me,
I suggest you seek therapy.
Take a risk and cut off all your ties,
Go head first as you go down the slide.
But don’t let it get in your head,
It will eat you alive, my friend.

‘Cause there’s a message from above,
The aliens are warning us…
If we don’t stop, we will destroy ourselves,
I think enough is enough, enough is enough.

Doll yourself up just go outside,
Blue streaks cover the bags under your eyes.
And I can’t believe that you think,
That you look good like that to anybody.
Airing out your laundry to the world,
Starving for attention like a little girl.
Cry yourself to sleep on me,
I promise that I won’t tell anybody.

‘Cause there’s a methodology
to all the things that I do...
‘Cause there’s a methodology
to all the things that I do...

…methodology….methodology….methodology…

One more chance to make it up to me,
I can’t accept your apologies.
Inconsistencies within the things,
that you like to tell me daily.
Why’s it so hard to get along these days?
Everywhere I’ve been has been engulfed in flame.
No rhyme or reason, credit’s freezin’
Smell the treason, blame the President…

‘Cause there’s a methodology
to all the things that I do...
‘Cause there’s a methodology
to all the things that I do...
‘Cause there’s a message from above,
The aliens are warning us…
If we don’t stop, we will destroy ourselves,
I think enough is enough, enough is enough.
Track Name: How Could You?
“HOW COULD YOU?”
Written by Dave Cahill
Copyright 2011 Dave Cahill (ASCAP)

You seem, crazy, to me, and I am not the only one, who thinks that you, should see someone, it’s overdue. Lately, I think, that we’ve, really, really grown apart, right from the start, I don’t know, let’s review.

Memorize some words to say to you sometime, do you care? Rip apart my feelings in a single night. How could you? How could you?

Sister, will you, trust me? And let me in your home tonight. It’s getting late, it’s getting cold. No place to go. Relive (relive), old days (old days), good times (good times). It makes me wonder how you could, throw me out, just like that. You heartless thing.

Memorize some words to say to you sometime, do you care? Rip apart my feelings in a single night. How could you? How could you?

How could you?How could you? Throw me out, out, out, out, out, out, out? How could you? How could you? Throw me out, out, out, out, out, out? Throw me out, out, out. And I will come back for you, yes I will come back for you. How could you?
Track Name: Something Ain't Right
“SOMETHING AIN’T RIGHT”

You there, waiting for a ride. Why not hitch a ride with me? I feel, like I, did the right thing. Hold on, as life accelerates. You’re still trapped in yesterday. My God, I feel like I have lost it.

Please believe me, when I tell you that… Something ain’t right. Ain’t right, ain’t right, ain’t right.

Space wine, drinking heavily. So fucked up I cannot see. Green men, come in, smoking the DMT. Demons, runnin’ round my mind. LSD drips down my spine. There goes the next twelve hours.

Please believe me, when I tell you that… Something ain’t right. Ain’t right, it ain’t right, ain’t right.

Metamorphose is complete, psilocybin for a week. You said, you saw, some crazy shit. Now, now, some believe it’s wrong, to see heaven from your room. Maybe those people are what’s really wrong.

Please believe me , Please believe me , Please believe me, when I tell you that… Something ain’t right. It ain’t right, it ain’t right, it ain’t right…
Track Name: Tongue Tied
Tongue tied, in an argument, you’ve got to turn it up, and, don’t let anybody, ever get in your way. Spring sun, shining down, and, look around you, life is good, but, please be careful, not to, leave it up to faith.

It’s no wonder, liquid enemy. Mass disorder, rewrite history.

Freeze fried, in an ornament, you’ve got to figure out, just how can anybody, still lie to their kids? No strings, no regrets, and, no resistance to ideas. But one day it may happen, you just, might wither out.

It’s no wonder, liquid enemy. Mass disorder, social casualty.

Faking madness, to attract us, telling lies, and telling lies. Faking madness, to attract us, telling lies, and telling lies.

Tongue tied, in an argument, you’ve got to turn it up, and, don’t let anybody, ever get in your way. Spring sun, shining down, and, look around you, life is good, but, please be careful, not to, leave it up to faith.

It’s no wonder, liquid enemy. Mass disorder, rewrite history. Faking madness, to distract us, telling lies, and telling lies. Faking madness, to distract us, telling lies, and telling lies… telling lies, telling lies, telling lies, telling lies, taking lives, telling lies, and telling lies, and telling lies.

Tongue tied, in an argument, you’ve got to turn it up, and, don’t let anybody, ever get in your way.
Track Name: Optical
“OPTICAL”

This, reminds me of that time, when we went into your room, we looked out your window, at all of the crazy people. Cars, move forward rapidly, they keep sweating gasoline, and some guy keeps honkin’, at almost every girl he sees.

What to do, and what to think? You’ve got it going on. Am I something special, or am I just another, waste of time to you?

Someday, I will take you far from this place. There’s somewhere, I would like to take you to, and… Besides, there’s nothing left for you and me here. And sometimes, you, are wrong…

Optical, literal, impossibility. Remember when we were young and we wanted everything? This is how it goes. Everyone grows old. And I just want to grow old, with you…

She, reminds me of this girl, who had everything in the world, she was always laughin’, at other people’s misfortune. Pain, can weigh a million tons, I bet you can’t outrun. The complete collapse, watch everything all go wrong at once.

What to do, and what to think? You’ve got it going on. Am I something special, or am I just another, waste of time to you?

Someday, I will take you far from this place. There’s somewhere, I would like to take you to, and… Besides, there’s nothing left for you and me here. And sometimes, you, are wrong…

Optical, literal, impossibility. Remember when we were young and we wanted everything? This is how it goes. Everyone grows old. And I just want to grow old, with you…
Track Name: Loaded Gun
“LOADED GUN”

Believe, that we’ll make it out of here alive. Conceal, carry on with your vicious place. Tic-Toc, around the clock, it never stops. Big deal, a shooting spree, everyday.

Wrap your finger, ‘round the trigger to a loaded gun. Wrap your finger, ‘round the trigger to a loaded gun.

Empty, this place will make us suffocate tonight. Don’t you see?We will run out of air at midnight. Knock-Knock, here come the cops, they’re busting in. Oh fuck, I really hope, I hid my shit.

Wrap your finger, ‘round the trigger to a loaded gun. Wrap your finger, ‘round the trigger to a loaded gun.

Bang! Cop goes down, cop goes down…Just imagine what it must feel like to be his son, and… Bang!Cop goes down, cop goes down…A killer mentality, spreads through your body, oh no…

This looks a lot, like I always had thought, as we see the military, on every block. The defenders of tyrants, are always more violent. Kill a million an hour, a million an hour.

Real crooks, all wear ten thousand dollar suits and ties. While the banks, they are the ones committing all the crimes. Cha-Ching, a family, just lost its’ home. Ring, ring, the CIA, is on the phone. Gandhi, only ever fought back peacefully. Don’t you see? Peace is the only path to victory.

Wrap your finger, ‘round the trigger to a loaded gun. Wrap your finger, ‘round the trigger to a loaded gun.

Bang! Cop goes down, cop goes down…Just imagine what it must feel like to be his son, and… Bang!Cop goes down, cop goes down…A killer mentality, spreads through your body, oh no…

This looks a lot, like I always had thought, as we see the military, on every block. The defenders of tyrants, are always more violent. Kill a million an hour, a million an hour.

Wrap your finger, ‘round the trigger to a loaded gun.
Track Name: Immunity
See? Look what you’ve done. We are losing sons. Please, stop building bombs. Before we, become undone.

Look, we need to talk. There’s something in the dark. Why, did we embark? Kill, kill, kill, you hit your mark.

Think of this as a warning, things are not quite as they seem. Toxic clouds of dust above, just to destroy our immunity.

Breathe, inhale chemicals. Eat, mutant vegetables. Drink, poison from a cup. Your brain, will shrink soon enough.

Thieves, they rob everyone. Realize, we outnumber them ten to one. Fight, give it all that you’ve got. ‘Cause the war, it must be stopped, it must be stopped, it must be…

Think of this as a warning, things are not quite as they seem. Toxic clouds of dust above, just to destroy our immunity.

Welcome… To another violent society. It’s much worse then you thought it could ever be. Well, well, put your hand in mine and everything will be ok, at least for one more day…

Think of this as a warning, things are not quite as they seem. Toxic clouds of dust above, just to destroy our immunity.

Welcome… To another violent society. It’s much worse then you thought it could ever be. Well, well, put your hand in mine and everything will be ok, at least for one more day… Yes one more day…
Track Name: We're Not The Only Ones (Kalma Remix)
“WE'RE NOT THE ONLY ONES”
Written by Dave Cahill
Copyright 2011 Dave Cahill (ASCAP)

We’re not, where we’re supposed to be, we’re way off road indeed. Save us from ourselves, save yourself from me. I’m afraid I’ve got bad news, I’m calling you from the grave. You thought that you had one more chance, but I’m sorry that it’s too late. Heartache like you’ve never felt before, like a dagger in you veins. Bleeding on the floor, you’re filled with so much pain. No one gets out of here alive; we’re all guaranteed to die. So make the best time of your life, you only get one try…

But you’re not the only one…no you’re not the only one… no you’re not the only one…you’re not the only, no you’re not the only, no you’re not the only one.

Clouds of gas three light years tall, can’t comprehend at all. The magnitude of the unknown, and to think that we’re that small. Long voyage awaits us, so let’s get on the mother ship. Let’s visit distant worlds, and swim with intelligent fish. Until we put down all our guns, and we realize that we’re all one. Maybe then we’ll get somewhere, and finally become. What we’re all meant to be, explorers of the galaxies. This is just our destiny; it’s the reason why we’re here…

But we’re not the only ones…no we’re not the only ones… no we’re not the only ones…no we’re not the only, no we’re not the only, no we’re not the only ones.

Now let’s all come back down to Earth, so that you can pay respect. To the man that you still love, to the man that you miss. Your friends are all concerned, about what you will do. To deal with losing the one person, that understood you. Please worry not my love, I promise that we’ll be ok. I know that this is hard right now, but I know that I’ll see you again. No we’re not the only ones, there are billions and billions of Suns. Abundant life in The Cosmos, we’re not the only ones…

But we’re not the only ones…no we’re not the only ones… no we’re not the only ones…no we’re not the only, no we’re not the only, no we’re not the only ones.
