Track Name: heart of styrofoam
the beginning is all flowers and magic
love is like the water in the park
your bones are paper
your skin is black powder
the tips of my fingers shoot sparks

sometimes things are fragile and tragic
and life is like a mobile home
if passion is a gasoline
I've got a heart of styrofoam

I recall it was the dead of winter
all the snow would make the heart grow cold
if all your thoughts are just sidewalk salt
then my mind's a garden slug crawling home

well sometimes things get melodramatic
and life is just a thing we crave
but pumping inside your heart is a nuclear reactor
inside mine a tsunami wave
yeah, inside mine a tsunami wave

we could have been something
we could have worked it out
and seen it all through
no matter how close to something that you think that you are
there's a distance you got to go, you can never break through

and in the end is all hymns and flowers
love is not a worthy epitaph
my bones are powder
skin boils in the fire
and the tips of my fingers shoot laughs

sometimes things are fragile and tragic
and life is like a mobile home
if passion is gasoline
I've got a heart of styrofoam

we could have been something
we could have worked it out
and seen it all through
no matter how close to something that you think that you are
there's a distance you got to go, that you got to break through
Track Name: invisible dart
some people have no luck
some people have it all
some people make new start
some poeple take a fall


where is this infinite bubble
where is this invisible dart
where is the lingering trouble
where is the suffering heart


some people are funny
some people are sad
some people always walk away
Track Name: fool
i saw you standing there
many years ago
read your book in my room
never knew what would become

fool for your love

you said the film was not bad
sometimes things are funny
left the place to find a home
never knew what would become

fool for your love
Track Name: conductor
cold sore
culture so far
conductor
lead us away

micronaught
many are finding
briefcase slap
wish it away

do you believe that life is just a dream?
yes I'm sure it happens if you know what I mean

can you understand things that you cannot see?
i don't really care but I see where you've been

i wanna know what were you like before you were born
yes I'm sure you would but I've said it before

potential
in a well
pleased to meet you
lead us away

micronaught
many are finding
briefcase slap
wish it away
Track Name: another world
i wanna see another world
better throw me on a bed of flowers
give me sun give me air to breath

it could be the same as this one
with the roads and the trees and the shit
give me water give me light to see

i wanna know another world now
better give me the long walk talk
give me mud give me sounds to hear
give me life to see

it could be the same as this one
with the frogs and the paint and the disease
if where i am is a miracle
i just want to see another one of these

i wanna see another world
it might have our flowers and guns
if where i am is a miracle
i just wanted to see another one
Track Name: here to stay
counting down
til the numbers are done
counting down, but we've only begun
it gets inside of your head
got to be the one

i can see
what you needed to be
gets inside of your head
got to let it be free

here to stay
and the talking is slow

we're here to stay
and i think that I know

it gets inside of your head
got to let it all go
gets inside of your head
got to let it all go

here to stay
Track Name: outloud
when I see you come over walking to me
talking to me i mean

when you come around you let the sadness fall
let the sadness fall right now

when I see your eyes and they're looking at me
seeing me I mean

when you look around you let the sadness fall
let the sadness fall right now

beat it, concede it, complete it, feel it, you blur it like a sad song
beat it, concede it, complete it, feel it, burn it like a sad song

why you want to look when there's nothing around
why you want to touch when there's no one to be found
why you want to play when your playing with me now

why you want to laugh when there's no one around
why you want to look if there's nothing that can be found
makes it sound so funny when you say it out loud

beat it, concede it, feel it, complete it
blur it like a sad song

beat it, concede it, feed it, feel it
burn it like a sad song
Track Name: burn it
we should burn all the flags
not just one or two
if we could burn all of the flags well
thats what i would do
seems like a simple way out
for me and you
if we could burn out
all the flags that's
what i would do

if I could burn out all the flags
it would make a lot a people mad
but i want to burn out all the flags not
just the ones that are bad

see 'em wagging in the air
just makes me sad
if i could burn out all the flags
it wouldn't be too bad

they say
symbols are just power
power gives a symbol hope
power of the people is the only answer
not some rag on a rope

leave a human race divided
but it ain't no joke
if you can find your power in an old piece of cloth
maybe there ain't no hope
