Track Name: Main Attraction
wake up
the time has come to take the back door out of here
forget it
leave behind all the names you've ever known

stand up in a world of fiction
see the size of the hand that is writing it out
now there's been a disaster in the city square
it's the main attraction everybody is there

move
be aware of the outside closing in
time makes you
you can't plan all the things you need to know

to carry on in the world of garbage
know the face of the man that is treading about
now there's been a disaster in the city square
it's the main attraction everybody is there

get used to the final countdown
get in on the slang that is going around
now there's been a disaster in the city square
it's the main attraction everybody there is involved
now there's been a disaster in the city square
it's the main attraction everybody is
Track Name: Atheneum
i feel i'm watching it peel away
i see dark passages leading the way
the dog's on watch and i wanna stay in an atheneum
the dog's on watch and i wanna stay in an atheneum

i don't speak a word i don't blink
i feel i have to learn everything
my mind is shot and i wanna stay in an atheneum
my mind is shot and i wanna stay in an atheneum

i found the oldest place of my mind
there is nothing there no outside
the odds stand tall that i'm gonna stay in an atheneum
the odds stand tall that i'm gonna stay in an atheneum
Track Name: Ohiowa
there is a place where we meet the states
in a far off continent of the married land
aloha hawaii ohiowa
aloha hawaii ohiowa

i'm over the ocean that is shining bright
i put my hand on my forehead to shield the light
aloha hawaii ohiowa
aloha hawaii ohiowa

this is a maze looking down at the town
the pilot's afraid to be back on the ground
aloha hawaii ohiowa
aloha hawaii ohiowa
Track Name: The Counter
i don't wanna let up
i don't wanna slow down
i'm inside of the movie
that's inside of my house
inside the dream that i'm thinking of
the chorus that i'm singing in
the counter says i'm much too fast
the counter says i'm much too fast

i don't wanna sneak in
i'm gonna wake the town
by the sound of my driving
by the drive of my sound
inside the dream that i'm thinking of
the chorus that i'm singing in
the counter says i'm much too fast
the counter says i'm much too fast

i don't wanna let on
but i'm about to let to go
it seems clearer to me
that i am one with the world
inside the dream that i'm thinking of
the chorus that i'm singing in
the counter says i'm much too fast
the counter says i'm much too fast
Track Name: When an Idea Comes to Me
i am many-minded for sure
this is not what i desire any more
when an idea comes to me it comes to me
when an idea comes to me it comes to me
it comes to me

i am method acting for sure
i have finally gotten over my cure
when an idea comes to me it comes to me
when an idea comes to me it comes to me
it comes to me

if my brain is broken
then why's mind so focused?

when an idea comes to me it comes to me
when an idea comes to me it comes to me
it comes to meow meow meow meow
Track Name: Elephant Marches
that painting's a lie i can tell by the size
it's vector forms are too misshapen and outside the lines
to be a true authenticated piece

it's 11:11 time to make up my mind
i've got to see that never-ending side of the night
or be asleep and caught in an endless dream

i don't recall i'll go back in time
i can't tell what is happening in front of my eyes
because of the fabricated history

history the elephant marches
history the elephant marches
history the elephant marches
history the elephant marches
Track Name: Further than I've Ever Been
if i don't sound like i mean it
then that's because i don't believe in it
and i don't think i want to be awake

i'm going further than i've been
further than i've ever been before

i can't say that i've seen it
or been able to feel it
but in my mind it's present all the time

i'm getting closer than i've been
closer than i've ever been before

i'm going further than i've been
further than i've ever been before
i'm getting closer than i've been
closer than i've ever been before
Track Name: Iron Sense of Doubt
i am locked to the television
i am talking at the telephone
i am privy to the information
going on in the capitol
i know all of the facts and i add them all
to my iron sense of doubt

the news talks about the innocent victims
and the causes of the accident
i am looking at the terrible creature
sped away in an ambulance
the anchor doesn't think just sings along
to my iron sense of doubt

the flunkey's going for his second doctorate
working for the medicine man
i might be able to resist his power
i am a witness i have evidence
the inconsistency is just more to add
to my iron sense of doubt
Track Name: The Flight I Make
the flight i make is a simple plan a to b
i know the words to the book you penned a to z

if you believe what the doctor says you're diseased
your entire life is what you did today don't you see?
Track Name: Signet Has Come Up
are you ready to watch him sum into a single seal?
the signet has come um um up
it has come um um ah
signet has come um um up

the time is right to take his life and mark it with the sign
the signet has come um um up
it has come um um ah
signet has come um um up

focus on the essential aspects of the purest form
the signet has come um um up
it has come um um ma
signet has come um um up
