Track Name: Jonasstrasse
I was used up on nothing
trying to get where you are
So much boredom in my job,
internal sarcasm

I was getting a little
bit obsessed maybe
Slightly, not a big deal
not a big deal

In this town
there's a train
you can take
to get away

Saturday, seen in madness
of the world spitting out
what it thought that it wanted
crushing things in its mouth

Born to feel you were special
raised above all the rest
Came to see that's just standard
I came, I saw, I left again

In this town
there's a train
you can take
to get away

Away from dirt,
away from shame
The hours move,
your name remains
Track Name: Purity
Your madness tangled with mine
I should try and sleep again
Track Name: Analysis
Hey, analyse this, I want you to take
your underwear off in the back of the car
with a full compliment of Hieronymus Bosch
goings-on in the rear of the scene,
a half-forgot dream made of old magazines,
a conga-line of Jungian archetypes form
in the nude by a forest of pubes
that's on fire with the promise of STDs

You know what I mean
That's not what I mean
You seen what I seen?

Wait up, my language is crushed
I hung out too long with the promise of
fuck what a fool I've been,
it's hard to admit what I think
It's amateur dramatics writ large
on the screen of my skull,
a melodrama that's dull
all we need is a new influence

Hey, I can change all the things
that surrounded this bar after I wandered in
I have burnt my keepsake box of debris
Tell me, what is required of a usual guy
in a usual way? Who can say?
You better than me

Disembodied, I drifted into tangles of weeds
Lifted, and pinned up to the trunk of a tree
Then I'm back, and we're speaking of needs
that we've got, buried in the dark all unseen
Wants collide with social difficulties
Ego, control that Id please
Track Name: Too Much
Oceans of spit and flem and bad dreams
I swam them at night with hard kicks of my legs
Morning snapped over the ranks of the houses
Landlord's gone, tenant confronting a new mess

Too much, too much
All of these beautiful terrible creatures
If I take what I want

Oceans will rise up and swallow our secrets
Probably not that's hysterical thinking
Who were you fighting and what were the reasons?
What is the gradient? Why so uneven?

Too much, too much
All of these beautiful terrible creatures
If I take what I want

Oceans will rise up and swallow our secrets
Probably not that's hysterical thinking
Who were you fighting and what were the reasons?
What is the gradient? Why so uneven?
How do we choose between all of these meanings?
What is the gradient? Why so uneven?
