Mubla Na Thguob Just when you think you've figured these guys out they seemlessly shift genres and leave you pleasantly bemused. I like this ALOT! Favorite track: Insect Bones.

Soshanna ♥ One of those rare albums that finds itself crossing over from one genre to the next and covers so much music territory in one spin, and you're left feeling like you've come across something very special. This is a good find, and hell...it comes from a vacuum. :p Thanks Lucas for the tip. ♥ Favorite track: A Trip To The Ontologist.

Things are not as they seem Life is only a dream It's all the same to You don't know me at all You don't know me at all Resist what is pulling you away All of your precious little things It doesn't matter to You don't know me at all You don't know me at all Think what you please It's not what you need I'm only thinking of You don't know me at all You don't know me at all Vocoder: Jesus swept down with love like a Deathray Turn off your minds and we'll see you on Sunday Jesus swept down with love like a Deathray Turn off your minds and we'll see you on Sunday

Well I've made up my mind Not to think about the past All in good time But I swear that it's gone so fast And I know it can not last Out of my way I'm an ordinary man I can't explain Cause I know not who I am And I hope you'll understand And I feel so surreal just to be here at all And I feel so surreal just to be here at all I take pleasure in pain It's the only thing I have I've gone insane And it's so so good to be back And I made it out intact Stare down the sun I am mother nature's son It's just begun I can hardly stand the wait And I know there is no escape And I feel so surreal just to be here at all And I feel so surreal just to be here at all

Pieces of pieces Broken down into piles A face with no name It's all the same after a while You can still dream What does it mean when you're fading away Fade away, yea Fade away, yea On my way home Won't you save me Won't you save me From myself The folds and the creases Increases releases of smiles It's all in the game When we're all insane after a while You're not what you've seen Or where you've been you're fading away Fade away, yea Fade away, yea On my way home Won't you save me Won't you save me, from myself From myself, from my, my my self "You are excrement, you can change yourself into gold"

Well you don't realize A hand extended, once you've taken Act so civilized Won't admit to broken issues And what it means Is everything and nothing at all And what it means Is everything and nothing at all Well you don't realize You're being lied to plastic people Hour after hour Reasons ending, search continues And what it means Is everything and nothing at all And what it means Is everything and nothing at all Nothing at all Well you don't realize Being lied to plastic people Hour after hour Reasons ending, search continues And what it means Is everything and nothing at all And what it means Is everything and nothing at all Nothing at all You think your life has got meaning I really think you must be dreaming You better soak up all the marrow Your world view is so narrow Yea, they're gonna do what they want They're gonna take it away from me They're gonna do what they want Just you wait and see You drop a bomb on my city There ain't no vote, there's no committee This doesn't look like progress I wanna burn down Congress Yea, they're gonna do what they want They're gonna take it away from me They're gonna do what they want yea Just you wait and see

What will be, will be And can set you free But you will see There is nothing free When you gave it all away Please release me Put your Deathray to my head Please deceive me You'll be better off than dead What you don't know Will only grow And the proof will show You can never know No one's wrong like me Please release me Put your Deathray to my head Please deceive me You'll be better off than dead Now all I see Is complicity You're just like me And you'll never be Everything at once Please release me Put your Deathray to my head Please deceive me You'll be better off than dead

There's a hole in my head where my mind shoulda been And I can't figure out now, which way is up and I I can't feel it anymore All I've got and I want more Well there's pieces of you in my pieces of me And I'm all upside down man I just can't see but I I can't feel it anymore All I've got and I want more You want it you can't have it You've gotta try and grab it You want it you can't have it You've gotta try and grab it I can't feel it anymore All I've got and I want more There's a hole in the sky and it's mine mine all mine It's like Jesus Christ with like laser eyes and I I can't feel it anymore All I've got and I want more Well there's pieces of me in my pieces of you and I'm So fucked up man I don't know what to do but I I can't feel it anymore, All I've got and I want more You want it you can't have it You've gotta try and grab it You want it you can't have it You've gotta try and grab it I can't feel it anymore All I've got and I want more

I've been rearranged Should I feel this strange I wanna give it away This contagious malaise I've been waiting for a very long time Nothing's ever like it seems in my mind I've been waiting for a very long time Nothing's ever like it seems in my mind I'm gonna nurture my rage Just like flames in a cave I wanna do it today I wanna give it away I've been waiting for a very long time Nothing's ever like it seems in my mind I've been waiting for a very long time Nothing's ever like it seems in my mind

I'm not convinced that this is happening at all I'm not convinced that this is happening at all I'm not convinced that I am right and you are wrong I'm not convinced that you are listening to this song Cause now I know Not to look you in the eyes When things go wrong It should come as no surprise The wind that blows Might cast us all aside Like insect bones When there's nothing left inside If this is real then I don't wanna be at all If this is real then I don't wanna be at all In all my dreams you are so big and I am small In all my dreams you are so big and I am small Cause now I know Not to look you in the eyes When things go wrong It should come as no surprise The wind that blows Might cast us all aside Like insect bones When there's nothing left inside

Say nothing by saying everything We all have so much to bring Do nothing by leaving it all alone We all have so much to show And I know what I believe Take it back from me A little more each day In the same old way now I don't think so I don't think so Live life like it's your only one Each moment like a song unsung Think nothing while proving everything We all have too much to say And I know what I believe Take it back from me A little more each day In the same old way now I don't think so I don't think so Take it back from me Your head buried in the sand All I can see Well that's just my philosophy Well that's just my philosophy You take it back from me Your head buried in the sand All I can see Well that's just my philosophy Well that's just my philosophy You take it back from me Your head buried in the sand All I can see Well that's just my philosophy Sample: "There's a time, when the operation of the machine becomes so odious Makes you so sick at heart, That you can't take part, You can't even passively take part And you've got to put your bodies upon the gears and upon the wheels, Upon the levers, upon all the apparatus, And you've got to make it stop, and you've got to indicate to the people who run it, to the people who own it, That unless you're free, The machine will be prevented from working at all"

Look into the TV Eye Mind control that you will buy Operators standing by Transmit truth and sell you lies I don't believe it I know it's wrong How much longer Can this go on Look into the setting sun In spite of the victories that we've won Watch the close of civilization Endless war is not a rerun I don't believe it I know it's wrong How much longer Can this go on Hypocritics them dodge bullets, so... Look into the TV Eye Mind control that you will buy Operators standing by Transmit truth and sell you lies I don't believe it I know it's wrong, How much longer Can this go on Hypocritics them dodge bullets, so...

This mortal coil Unraveling before my eyes You turn to greet them It comes as no surprise We think we know What it's all about We'll never know We've all been locked out What you mean to me I can never say Words are failing me To express my pain What's in all of you Just like all of me And I notice now That we'll never be free yea Dearly departed your Ashes turn to dust That's alright it's the Same fate for all of us We think we know What it's all about We'll never know We've all been locked out What you mean to me I can never say Words are failing me To express my pain What's in all of you Just like all of me And I notice now That we'll never be free yea
