Track Name: Education
You say you want an education
I’d like to give you an education
Well we all fall down
Yes we all fall down
Yes we all fall down

The best in the whole damn nation
You wanna be the best in the whole damnation
Reaching for that crown
Reaching for that crown
Reaching for that crown

Here comes the application
It’s gonna take a bit of concentration
You can’t point a finger or two
Without five pointing back at you

You were ready with the desecration
You even gave it a little bit of designation
Well you burn it down
You’re gonna burn it down
Burn it right to the ground
You’re gonna burn it down, down down down down..

We’ll be waiting for a resignation
I’ll guess I’ll add it to your evaluation
Well we all fall down
Yes we all fall down
Yes we all fall down
Track Name: Diane
Oh, I never thought I'd have to rationalize
Oh, so sweet you think you can fictionalize- opaque eyes

If you are the flower, I’ll be the rain
I'll be the sun, make it bright again
If you've got the power, surely you can feel the pain

I’ve got the scars but I feel no shame
You were the one hath made us so tame
I'll lie in the verse, while you lazily take the refrain

Oh, you can judge if you want to
You can judge if you want to
But you can’t scathe me
Oh, you can judge if you want to
You can judge if you want to
But you can’t scathe me

I want to sing instead I talk
I want to run, instead i walk
Maybe I’ll dance and you will then childishly mock
From above the point may seem moot
The tree is so vapid without the root
So hack hack away, so you get at your fruit

Oh, you can judge if you want to
You can judge if you want to
But you can't scathe me
Oh, you can judge if you want to
You can judge if you want to
But you can't scathe me
No
Track Name: Prize
Stand tall, with all of your prized possessions you must have it all
It’s just a small speck of the mound
Keep it safe and sound and don’t spread it ‘round

Deep down with all of the nitty gritty
This is not your town- you’ve got to keep it pretty
Have you heard?
Don’t say a word, don’t say a word

You can keep yours too, if you let them eat cake
You can take off one shoe- save it for your wedding day

You can keep all of your coins, if that’s what you like
But it won’t fill your void, so you’ll spoil with spite

But it’s your prize, it’s your prize, it’s your prize, it’s your prize
But it’s your prize, it’s your prize, it’s your prize, it’s your …

What now, the castle is crumbling
You’ll figure it out why you are still fumbling for your keys
Don’t let them see, don’t let them seize

You can keep yours too, if you let them eat cake
You can take off one shoe- save it for your wedding day

You can keep all of your coins, if that’s what you like
But it won’t fill your void, so you’ll spoil with spite

But it’s your prize, it’s your prize, it’s your prize, it’s your prize
But it’s your prize, it’s your prize, it’s your prize, it’s your …
Track Name: Memento
I keep forgetting to remember to forget you
Kind of like a dream that won’t come true
Trying all night and day just to get through
I keep forgetting to remember to forget you
La da da da da

Racking my brain each time I come to
Can’t shake the ache, I guess that’ll have to do
It burns itself into the skin like a tattoo
I keep forgetting to remember to forget you

I must admit counterfeit
Thoughts, how they rot since September
I must admit I read the script
But forgot the lines
I must admit that this time, I think it’s mine- but I don’t remember
I forged memories like names, and it’s all the same
And it all goes way with a tap on the shoulder

I must admit counterfeit
Thoughts, how they rot since September
I must admit I read the script
But forgot the lines
I must admit that this time, I think it’s mine- but I don’t remember
I forged memories like names, and it’s all the same
And it all goes way with a tap on the shoulder

So few pieces remain, so few
Try to boil it down, it doesn’t matter if it’s true
I tried to mix a green, I ended up with a blue
I keep forgetting to remember to forget you
La da da da da

Someone told a lie, was it me or was it you?
Try to break it down, it doesn’t matter if it’s true
If a person’s a memory with a name, then who
Keeps forgetting to remember to forget you
La da da da da
La da da da da
La da da da da
Track Name: Someday
My life, always going faster
My life, paint it alabaster
Doesn’t matter which way you spin
Sometimes you lose, sometimes you win
Til someday

Their strife, always going somewhere
Their strife, I hope they get some sun there
Doesn’t matter which way you spin
For some, they never win
Til someday

Sitting in an umbrella
Catching raindrops from the clouds
I guess that I misheard them
Doesn’t matter anyhow

Isn’t it nice, with your head up in the clouds?
Isn’t it nice, crowns on all of the clowns?
Doesn’t matter which way you spin
For some, they always win
Til someday

Sitting in an umbrella
Catching raindrops from the clouds
I guess that I misheard them
Doesn’t matter anyhow

My life, always going faster
My life, paint it alabaster
Doesn’t matter which way you spin
Sometimes you lose, sometimes you win
Til someday
Track Name: Sound and Noise
You know that this is how it starts
It gets all tangled in your brain
But its wider than the sky
And it will cipher all your pain

And like a trip sick drug
Just one drop is all you need
And it will twist into a tree
From one miniscule seed

And you'll say what is this sound, what is this noise, what is it’s name?
How does it have the power to make me feel insane?
And you'll say what is this sound, what is this noise, what is it’s name?
How does it have the power to make me feel insane?

And love oh love oh love, my heart used to be mine
And love oh love oh love, my heart used to be mine

Cuz you give it all your heart
But it wants your soul
It cannot stand to be apart
Cannot place you on parole
And you’ll find it everywhere
Round every corner, every crease
Seeping into what you’ll allow
It cannot stop, it will not cease

And you'll say what is this sound, what is this noise, what is it’s name?
How does it have the power to make me feel insane?
And you'll say what is this sound, what is this noise, what is it’s name?
How does it have the power to make me feel insane?

And you’ll say
How?
Track Name: Machine With a Memoir
Be careful how you leave it
Careful how you love it
Warranty, not included with creation
Be careful how you craft
And for now, I'll keep it in the territory
In a cloud, of ego, hurt, and stress
But for now, you've probably heard another story
Of a different dress

No gasoline of blue and red,
My binary's worth more instead
No ivory cages, built to crack
No lub or dub or wash like that
You'll never have to heal if you never feel the stuff that's real

Would you believe a machine with a memoir?
I'll make you receive a machine with a memoir
It's got style, it's got class, and it'll tell you about every single dream you've had
Would you believe a machine with a memoir?

Forget about, holding onto reminiscence
Forget about, past, present, and pains
Forget about holding on to your essence
It'll make you go insane

You've seen just how, option is a boundless burden
You've seen just how, you're left with the debris
But just now, mistakes are just a bygone
Connect and be free

No gasoline of blue and red,
My binary's worth more instead
No ivory cages, built to crack
No lub or dub or wash like that
You'll never have to heal if you never feel the stuff that's real

Would you believe a machine with a memoir?
I'll make you receive a machine with a memoir
It's got style, it's got class, and it'll tell you about every single dream you've had
Would you believe a machine with a memoir?
Track Name: The Rose
When I grow up, I won’t understand
What makes a woman and a man a man
And when I see things, view them with my eyes
I will see them in color, and forget to ask why

I might float around forever
With no roots to hold me down
Wondering where I’ll land
Wondering where it’s sound

And you- you will be unique in all the world
And I- I will be unique in all the world

Well perhaps when I have planted
Reached the soil, seen the sun
Will it shine on me forever
So I no longer need to run?

I hear that you’re responsible
For what you tend to tame
But I am a mere rose
Of the prickly, crimson fame

And you- you will be unique in all the world
And I- I will be unique in all the world

I steal glances and I hold them
But remain as empty as a shell
Just like a desert
That hides a thriving well
So like a tinman with no heart
What’s invisible to me
That I might fall without a sound
Like a crestfallen tree

And you- you will be unique in all the world
And I- I will be unique in all the world

I hear all men have stars
Of wealth and fame and power and pain
