Track Name: Maybes
Maybe you miss me when you're sleeping
Maybe you spend days and nights alone
But maybe my heart is in your keeping
Maybe when I'm with you, I am home

Maybe what we have is just mistaken
Maybe we should suffer less, or none
But maybe you made my heart awaken
And maybe our sweet story is not done

Maybe I have learned all the wrong lessons
Maybe we will never come to peace
But maybe we are only second-guessing
And maybe from our fears we'll be released

And maybe we are just in love with maybes
Maybe we are just afraid to change
Maybe I would walk right into Hades
To call you back if we become estranged

And I'm calling you

Maybe we are just in love with maybes
Maybe we will never come to bliss
Maybe I will wait right here in Hades
Until you come to free me with your kiss

Maybe you miss me when you're sleeping
Maybe you spend days and nights alone
But maybe my heart is in your keeping
And maybe when I'm with you, I am home.
Track Name: Observing The Alien
That other place
Your other face
My patience wearing thin
You tell me all
So I feel small
I'll hear it yet again
So much for friendly men

I am observing the alien
Watching the strange

My feelings live
Outside the sieve
Pushed through and put aside
You welcome me
And yet I see
You have a place to hide
So much for swelling pride

I am observing the alien
Watching the strange

I've had enough, I've had enough
Enough of hateful screed
I'm alien, it's true, but so much less than you
I am observing the alien
Watching the strange
I've had enough!

I am observing the alien
Watching the strange
Observing the alien
Wondering if you can change
Track Name: Albatross
Never made a plan to be your albatross
Never made a plan to be your slave
I have to say I've made the break
It was just one long mistake
Guess I never was the one you craved

Never made a plan to be your albatross
Here I go in search of what comes next
I have to say I'm eagerly
Expecting what I still can't see
Guess you always felt like second best

And the buzzards are all doing fine
Circling over what was mine
The buzzards are all doing swell
Summoned by that dinner bell

Never failed to understand your point of view
Never said that I would take the blame
I'm gonna guess your victimhood
Will always play out like it should
Guess you changed but somehow stayed the same

And the buzzards are all doing fine
Circling over what was mine
The buzzards are all doing swell
Summoned by that deathly knell
The buzzards gonna get their fill
Of everything that we both killed
Buzzards all will have their snack
But as for me, no going back

If all you offered was a roller coaster
Could have broken my neck on my own
Track Name: Sales Pitch
Today's the day I'm starting on my sales pitch
From now on, it's just hard-sell all the time
I've had some time to think
You may believe I've hit the drink
I'm trying to say I want you to be mine

I've got a heart inside me half the size of Delaware
That's twice as big as it was yesterday
Feel it beating in my chest
And I think that's for the best
Maybe if you hear how loud it is, you'll stay

You did not know me in the past
You did not set me on this path
We still don't know how much we'll feel
It may take time to make it real
But when I wake up in the night
See your face and it's all right
I could see this feeling going on forever

So today's the day I'm starting on my sales pitch
From now on it's just hard-sell all the time
I got you under my skin
I wanna lock this in
I gotta say I want you to be mine
Track Name: Still Letting Go
Dancing the dance of the still letting go
Time has to pass, but it all feels so slow
The long weary nights
The tears and the pain
And swearing off love 'til we try it again

Sleeping the sleep of the still letting go
The dead and the broken will put on a show
They might teach us how
To break through and move on
But all we can say that's for sure is ...
... they're gone
Track Name: Wonder Why
Take me by surprise
Look in my eyes
Tell me that I am not the one
Tell me that I
Must say goodbye
Tell me that I don't please you

Now I see it all
Petty and small
Nothing but ego in your head
I wonder how
I could think now
I could have ever pleased you

And I wonder why I
Wonder why I
Wonder why I am not the one

I gave you my trust
Transformed my lust
Gave you support when you were down
All that you need
Into the bleed
Anything just to please you

You left me at home
Left me alone
Said you'd be gone for just a while
Were they so much
More than a touch?
Were they enough to please you?

And I wonder why I
Wonder why I
Wonder why I am not the one

Go! Now I know
You were never right
This manhunt is never-ending
And I wonder why I
Wonder why I
Wonder why I am not the one
And I wonder why
Wonder why I
Must feel like I'm the one
Who's wrong
Track Name: Just Take Control
Give me a reason
And just take control
Give me a ruling
I'll make it my goal
Tell me your pleasure
You'll know that it's mine
An edge beyond measure
Ascendance divine
Tell me you love me
Tell me I'm bad
Just take control

Give me religion
And just take control
Make it platonic
And I'll tear a hole
Sing me a new song
I will harmonize
I've got a hard-on
Apotheosize
Tell me you love me
Tell me I'm bad
Just take control

When is it virtue?
When is it not?
When is it real?
Just take control
When is it virtue?
When is it hot?
When it is good
Just take control

Give me an answer
And just take control
Tell me no lies
I'll swallow them whole
Honor my trust
I'll never stray
You know my lust
Much better than they
Tell me you love me
Call me your slave
Just take control

When is it virtue?
When is it not?
When is it real?
Just take control
When is it virtue?
When is it hot?
When it is good
Just take control
Track Name: Download Upgrade
Since we came down from the trees
We've been on a quest for speed
Now we do it with our fingers
Never stop, never linger

Download! Upgrade!
Maybe now you've got it made
Download! Upgrade!
Wonder if you're getting played
Download! Upgrade!
Hurry up, it's getting late
I just want my new stuff now

Bullet trains? Way too slow
Speed of lightning's how we go
We're busy as a billion bees
In search of new efficiencies

Download! Upgrade!
Maybe now you've got it made
Download! Upgrade!
Wonder if you're getting played
Download! Upgrade!
Hurry up, it's getting late
I just want my new stuff now

Pigeon, pigeon, burning bright
Somewhere in a lab at night
Press a lever for some food
You're the emblem of my world
I sit here every day and bitch
I wanna throw just one more switch
I might be always on the run
But damn! Sometimes it's awful fun

Download! Upgrade!
Maybe now you've got it made
Download! Upgrade!
Wonder if you're getting played
Download! Upgrade!
Hurry up, it's getting late
I just want my new stuff now

My gut hangs down below my belt
My wrists ache and my eyes might melt
I wanna send just one more mail
I wanna see just one more "fail"
I want it instantaneous
The ways and means will not adjust
To every whim I entertain
But I'm too fast to feel the pain

Download! Upgrade!
Maybe now you've got it made
Download! Upgrade!
Wonder if you're getting played
Download! Upgrade!
Hurry up, it's getting late
I just want my new stuff now
