Track Name: Greenlite
(hahaha, you broke my board dude)

the brain is for thinking
learning, perceiving
but it's just electric impulses
it is but a muscle
through which the blood flows
there's nothing more to a heart

it takes a lot of hustle
just to make two dollars
that you will drink in one evening
it takes a lot of muscle
just to get to the center of my
constitution

waiting, waiting for that green light
to come again and tell me
it's gonna be all right
Track Name: Bubbles
all the hours I've lost
sitting on planes
both in the sky and at the
back of my brain

all the honor I've lost
playing with games
of incompetent narcissists and
the criminally deranged

say "why me?" enough times and you might stop grieving
say "i'm free!" enough times and you might believe it

i piss you off 'cause
you got the best of me
i piss you out 'cause
things weren't meant to be
Track Name: Empty Blues
when i wake up on empty
unsure if I'll get by
i make it to the station
before my tank runs dry
when i wake up all tired and
unsure if i'm all right
i bite my tongue and taste the blood
and then i know i'm live

maybe i'm better than i think i am
if i try harder than i think i can
but now I'm empty, so empty
i'm runnin' on fumes, empty

falling, and i can't stop
'cause there's no safety net
i guess it's time to spread my wings running and i can't stop
even to catch my breath, i
gotta get away from some things

maybe i'm better than i think i am
if i try harder than i think i can
but now I'm empty, so empty
i'm runnin' on fumes, empty
i got such a bad case of the empty blues

maybe i'm better than i think
and i know that i am
next time i'm gonna try a little harder
and then i know i can
